The rapid development of coherent and broadband light sources, optical and fiber-optics as well as electronics components has resulted in the rise of a broad range of their novel applications. One of those which has been an object of very intensive research carried on worldwide is laser spectroscopy for gas sensing. To date, laser-aided gas sensors have been constructed based on the use of clever measurement techniques, including TDLAS, WMS, PTS, QEPAS, CRDS, broadband optical frequency comb spectroscopy and many more. These techniques are especially efficient when combined with mid-IR laser sources, very sensitive photodetectors and recently microstructured optical fibers, and have enabled optical gas sensors to reach the sensitivity, selectivity and versatility required for the detection of various molecules at trace concentrations.
This Special Issue aims to summarize the state-of-the-art methods, solutions, materials and apparatus currently used in selective, sensitive and precise optical gas sensing. The main topics of the Special Issue are connected with:
- Photothermal spectroscopy;
- Photoacoustic spectroscopy;
- Dispersion spectroscopy;
- Optical frequency comb spectroscopy;
- Remote sensing;
- Tunable and wavelength modulation spectroscopy;
- Single-frequency and broadband laser sources;
- Novel materials for optical gas sensing;
- Microstructured optical fibers and waveguides;
- Photodetectors and spectrometers.

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.
