In optical spectral sensing and imaging technologies, spatial information is combined with spectroscopy. These methods offer fast and non-destructive methods which have evolved into powerful analysis tools for science and industry. In recent years, the related areas have developed rapidly. On the one hand, development is being driven forward both technically and methodically. Camera/imaging technology is developing very quickly—especially, the first hyperspectral chips have become commercially affordable. Additionally, their use in smartphones as sensors will not be long in coming. Another driving force is the ever more powerful computers and programs that enable us to visualize and analyze the enormous amounts of data in a reasonable amount of time using chemometric methods or AI applications.
This Special Issue will focus on (i) current state-of-the-art of optical sensors for spectral sensing and imaging, (ii) recent technological improvements in new devices/sensors, (iii) mathematical methods for data analysis, and (iv) scientific/industrial applications. Both original research papers and review articles describing the current state-of-the-art in this research field are welcome. The Editor intends with this SI to provide an overview of the present status as well as a future perspective of these topics.
The manuscripts should cover, but are not limited to, the following topics:
- Existing methodology and instrumentation;
- Emerging novel instrumentation and techniques;
- Spectral/data unmixing;
- Spectral variability;
- Classification, segmentation, and compression;
- Data fusion, information extraction, and simulation;
- Target detection;
- Hyperspectral image classification;
- High performance computing;
- AI applications and chemometric modeling;
- Calibration transfer;
- Scientific and industrial applications—all topics are welcome.

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.
