Femtosecond filamentation is a unique nonlinear optical phenomenon observed extensively in liquids, solids, and gases, in which ultrashort laser pulses propagate over long distances with high intensity. Its applications in remote sensing, laser communication, laser fabrication, advanced laser technology, etc., have aroused broad research interests. During filamentation, several physical processes are involved. The scales of the space and time are also widely spanned in the study of filamentation, and the electromagnetic wave frequency covers broad range from ultraviolet to microwave. Currently, the study of the filamentation remains very challenging, being a new interdisciplinary frontier involving physics, chemistry, material science, biomedical science, environment, artificial intelligent, electronics, and so on.
The aim of this Special Issue is to bring together cutting-edge research and advancements in this fascinating topic, particularly focusing on
- Sensing of filamentation, including characterizing the filamentary light pulse, the evolution of plasma, the molecular/atom excitation dynamic, modification of materials, etc.;
- Sensing using filamentation, including remote sensing, super-resolution imaging, THz spectroscopy, etc.;
- New sensing technology based on filamentation, including new light source generation (for example, THz, UV, IR laser pulse) , acoustic detection, micro structure/device fabrication, etc.
It is expected that this coming Special Issue will benefit the community by reporting new advances in this forefront field crossing broad topics and help newcomers easily gain familiarity with the community.

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.
