Distributed acoustic sensing (DAS) systems consist of a fiber-optic cable and an interrogator unit (IU), turning the cable into a dense array of broadband vibration sensors. DAS technology has rapidly developed over the last decade. This development enables a vast range of applications, which positively affect the rate of technological advancement. Emerging DAS technologies demand “outside-the-box” hardware and software developments and a deeper understanding of the nature and specifics of the DAS measurements. As an example, IUs with sub-meter spatial resolution, specially designed fibers, and fiber cables in conjunction with advanced algorithms might enable the nine-component extraction of the strain tensor. Another example is the combination of low-frequency DAS data with other Rayleigh, Raman, and Brillouin scattering-based distributed measurements that open new frontiers for multi-physics solutions.
We call for papers and aim to collect the latest scientific and technological advances in any relevant enabling technology impinging on the development and improvement of DAS.
Both research papers and critical reviews are welcome on the following non-exhaustive list of topics:
- DAS fibers and cables;
- Interrogator units;
- Multi-component and tensor measurements;
- Combining scattering regimes and multi-physics;
- Signal-to-noise ratio and data quality assessment;
- High-resolution measurements;
- Deployment and coupling;
- Optimizing DAS systems;
- Processing, inverting, and interpreting DAS data;
- Applications and case studies.

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.
