Special Issue "Recent Trends and Advances in Laser Spectroscopy and Sensing"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 15 December 2023 | Viewed by 5399
During the past several decades, laser spectroscopy has rapidly evolved in terms of scientific knowledge, instrument development, applications and widespread use. This fast growth was stimulated by the development of commercial laser sources and spectrometers/detectors with more compact dimensions, lower costs and higher performances compared to the initially available components. Using a properly chosen laser spectroscopy technique, it is possible to rapidly obtain information about the molecular and elemental composition of materials in solid, liquid and gaseous states, and in various environmental conditions. Among the most used laser spectroscopy techniques are Raman spectroscopy, laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS), laser-induced fluorescence (LIF), Fourier-transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy and laser absorption spectroscopy (LAS). The existing instruments are extremely various, ranging from hand-held to sophisticated laboratory tools, while the measurement distance might be from sub-millimetric to hundreds of meters (stand-off systems). This Special Issue is intended to present recent results regarding various laser spectroscopic techniques with the aim of reviewing the trends and advances. The following topics will be covered, but studies on other relevant topics are also welcome:
- Applications of a specific laser spectroscopy technique in various fields and working conditions;
- Results of combined laser spectroscopy techniques;
- Data processing;
- Sample preparation;
- Novel laser spectroscopy instruments.

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.
