Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Novel specialty optical fibers refer to optical fibers that have been engineered in materials and structures and undergone post-processing to yield novel functionalities and applications. Specialty optical fibers composed of different materials offer additional possibilities for improving sensor sensitivities by exploiting the properties of inserted materials (glass, metal, semiconductor, polymer, etc.). Sensor performances are furthermore improved by applying post-processing techniques to the fibers in order to enhance light–matter interactions. Extended sensing functionalities can be achieved by specialty optical fibers, accessing the space domain of light waves (few-mode fibers, multi-mode fibers, multi-core fibers, etc.). The associations of specialty optical fibers with robust and/or advanced sensing systems (fiber gratings, fiber interferometers, fiber metasurfaces, plasmonic devices, etc.) lead to new sensing possibilities.

The aim of this Special Issue is to collect and highlight the lasted advances in fiber sensors based on specialty optical fibers and their applications. We welcome the submission of original research papers or review papers that focus on the design and experimental performance of fiber sensors, as well as on the design, development, and applications of novel specialty optical fibers.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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.
