Fiber Optic Sensors based on Micro and Nanostructured Coatings


It is my great pleasure to invite you to consider submitting an original research article, review paper, critical survey articles and short notes for possible publication in our Sensors & Transducers (ISSN: 2306-8515, e-ISSN 1726-5479) journal's special issue devoted to ‘Fiber Optic Sensors based on Micro and Nanostructured Coatings’.





The continuous development of novel micro and nanofabrication techniques that permit the fabrication and arrangement of structures at the nanometer scale enables to experiment novel physical phenomena not observed before. More specifically, the work performed with structures in the order of magnitude of the wavelength of light takes advantage of these new phenomena and permits the development of multiple applications in the optical field. One application that has motivated the work of many authors in the last decades has been related to the fabrication of optical fiber sensors by means of the utilization of micro and nanostructured coatings. The fabrication techniques used to obtain these coatings is diverse and requires a multidisciplinary knowledge that encompass many different research fields.



Aims and Scope:


The aim of this special issue is to present an overview of current sensing technique improvements, fabrication processes, research progress, recent developments, and novel applications in fiber optic sensing technologies based on micro and nanostructured coatings. Original research papers on both theoretical work and experimental work as well as review works are welcome to this issue. Research of particular interest includes, but is not limited to biological, chemical and physical sensing as well as recent developments into advanced micro and nanofabrication techniques applied to fiber optic assembly.


Topics of interest include, but are not restricted to:


  • Evanescent field

  • Interferometry

  • Fluorescence

  • Colorimetry

  • Absorbance

  • Resonances

  • LPGs and FBGs

  • Micro/nano cavities

  • Specialty optical fibers

  • Hollow-core fibers

  • Hetero-core fibers

  • Micro/nano fabrication technologies

  • Optical materials

  • Biological sensors

  • Chemical sensors

  • Physical sensors
