There is a growing need for sensors that are capable of monitoring a plethora of analytes in complex and hazardous environments in real time. Optical spectroscopy is an ideal candidate for these sensor applications due to the intrinsic ability to send light to and from a measurement point using optics or fibers, thereby protecting expensive equipment from exposure. These applications of optical spectroscopy have seen rapid growth in their capabilities due to advances in equipment, modeling techniques, and sensor fusion. Outside of in situ analysis, similar advances have been made to enable the use of optical spectroscopy for further sample characterization.
This Special Issue therefore aims to put together original research and review articles on recent advances, technologies, solutions, applications, and new challenges in the field of optical spectroscopy for sensing, monitoring, and analysis.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Sensors is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
