Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Bio-chemical sensing is significantly important in a number of applications, such as in medical diagnostics, environmental monitoring, industrial applications, food safety, and security. Fiber optic technology, which is considered to be one of the most promising sensing techniques for bio-chemical sensing has been extensively studied in past decades due to its advantages of a small size, low cost, label-free features, high sensitivity, immunity to electromagnetic interference and ionizing radiation, distributed sensing and remote sensing capabilities. A number of fiber optic bio-chemical sensors based on WGM, fiber interferometers, surface plasmon resonances (SPR), fluorescence, absorption, optical fiber optofluidic lasers (FOFL), surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) and fiber microfluidic sensing technics have been reported. This Special Issue aims to provide an up-to-date overview on the recent advances and challenges in the design and fabrication of fiber optic bio-chemical sensors and sensing systems.

Potential topics include but are not limited to: the fiber optic sensing of explosives, bacteria, viruses, biological markers, nucleic acid, heavy metal ions, pollutants, PH, gases and fiber microfluidic sensing devices.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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.
