Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
In recent decades, optical sensors have been one of the most rapidly growing sensor areas because of their simplicity, low cost, and quick response. Many well-established technologies, including free-space optics, integrated photonics, fiber optics approaches, and distributed fiber optic sensors have been developed to fabricate and develop increasingly efficient optical sensors. Optomechanical sensors are devices in which a certain aspect of light propagation is modified (modulated) by a mechanical variable. The precise nature of the modulation can take many different forms. Optomechanical sensors have found various applications not only in fundamental science, e.g., in quantum fields and fluid dynamics, but also in biological research, medical diagnosis, and environmental monitoring.
This Special Issue, therefore, aims to collect original research and review articles on the recent advances, technologies, solutions, applications, and new challenges in the field of optical sensors and optomechanical sensors.
Potential topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Optical sensor technology and applications;
- Optical sensors platform fabrication;
- Optomechanical sensors technology and applications;
- Optomechanical platforms fabrication;
- Optomechanical sensing schemes;
- Distributed fiber optic sensors.

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.
