Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The 6th International Conference on the Applications of Optics and Photonics (AOP2024) will be held in Aveiro, Portugal, 16–29 July 2024. Since its first edition in 2011, the AOP conference has provided an excellent opportunity to foster, in an open and friendly environment, the establishment of the widest range of cooperation projects and relationships with colleagues and institutions involved in optics and photonics research worldwide. With this conference open to contributions in all domains of optics and photonics and application fields, we expect to review the state of the art in these subjects and discuss the future directions of research in optics and photonics. Many plenary and keynote lectures by world-renowned researchers in all fields of optics and photonics will set the quality standards of a varied and exciting scientific program.

We are honored to serve as Guest Editors of this Special Issue of Sensors, which will contain a selection of relevant papers submitted and accepted at the AOP2022 conference. Its main scope is to provide a timely and broad collection of the most innovative topics discussed in the latest edition of the conference related to the applications of optics and photonics. We warmly invite researchers to submit their contributions, both original research articles and review papers, to this Special Issue. Topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • Nanophotonics, plasmonics, theoretical optics, and quantum and nonlinear optics;
  • Optical communications and sensors;
  • Optical fibers and applications;
  • Biophotonics and biomedical and medical applications of optics and photonics;
  • Ultrafast lasers, ultrafast optics, and power lasers;
  • Optical metrology, image processing, and industrial applications;
  • Optometry, ophthalmic optics, and color and visual sciences;
  • Optoelectronics;
  • Microwave photonics;
  • Photonics and optical instrumentation for space and astronomy;
  • Optics and photonics for smart mobility and smart cities.

Dr. Manuel Filipe P. C. M. Costa
Guest Editor
