Fiber optic sensors have been widely used for the accurate measurement of various physical, chemical, and biological quantities, presenting with many well-known advantages. Various types of single-point and distributed fiber optic sensors have been reported in the last three decades, with some of them having been successfully commercialized. Therefore, further extension in the fields of application of fiber optic sensors is expected. This Special Issue aims to assemble original research and review articles concerning recent developments and applications of fiber optic sensors, including, but not limited to:
- Distributed fiber optic sensors;
- Fiber Bragg gratings;
- Optical fiber interferometers;
- Optical fiber resonators;
- Optical fiber spectroscopy;
- Sensors based on specialty optical fibers;
- Multiplexed or quasidistributed optical fiber sensors;
- Active optical fibers for sensing applications;
- Integrated optics for sensing;
- Microwave photonic sensors;
- Fiber optic sensors for physical, chemical, and biological measurements;
- Fiber optic sensor applications: civil structures, aerospace, oil and gas, medical, utilities, environmental monitoring, security, military and defense, steel industry, etc.

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.
