Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
The use of optical fiber for sensing predates its application in communication networks. Optical fiber sensor (OFS) technology has been under development for the past several decades, resulting in the production of a wide range of devices. Sensing applications have been solved in the industrial factory environment by exploiting the dielectric properties of the fiber in hazardous environments and electrically noisy areas. In addition, these sensors are compatible with communications systems, and have the capacity to carry out remote sensing and network sensing. The number of new or enhanced applications of sophisticated optical-fiber-based sensor systems are continuing to appear.
This Special Issue aims to gather these developments. Submissions may address any optical fiber sensing technology. Novel interrogation techniques, schemes, designs, and materials remain relevant research topics. Both original research papers and review papers are welcome. Technical topics include but are not limited to the following:
- Sensors in specialty optical fibers;
- Advanced optical-fiber-based mechanical and physical sensors;
- Advanced optical-fiber-based biomedical, chemical and environmental sensors;
- Optical fiber sensing networks;
- OFS systems in harsh environments;
- Specialized applications of OFSs in oil and gas industry, electric power systems, aerospace missions, transport, civil infrastructure and other areas;
- Integration and packaging of OFSs;
- Standardization efforts of OFSs for different industries and applications.

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.
