Call For Papers

Dear Colleagues,

During the past two decades, photonic crystal sensors have gained tremendous amount of research interests due to the ultra-compact size, high sensitivity, and ease of integration into various platforms. Compared with conventional optical fiber and waveguide-based sensors, photonic crystals offer unique properties that can be obtained from the photonic bandgap structures. For example, slow-light enhanced photonic crystal waveguide and high Q-factor photonic crystal microcavity have been demonstrated for ultra-sensitive gas sensing and biomarker detection.

This Special issue covers a large scope of research in photonic crystal sensors, and solicits contributions in, but not limited to:

Innovative photonic crystal sensor structures: photonic crystal slot waveguides, photonic crystal microcavities, photonic crystal fibers, bio-inspired and bio-enabled photonic crystals, metallic photonic crystals, and etc.
New sensing mechanisms on photonic crystal devices: refractive index sensing, UV-Vis-IR absorption, Raman scattering, fluorescence, or combination of multiplex sensing mechanisms
Broad engineering applications of photonic crystal sensors: gas sensors, chemical sensors, and biosensors
Photonic crystal sensors based on emerging materials: silicon, organic materials, biological materials, metals, transparent conductive oxides, and 2-D materials
Clinical applications of photonic crystal sensors, especially for cancer biomarker detections

The Article Processing Fees will be *FULLY* *WAIVED* for the paper submitted to this journal in 2014.


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. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as 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 refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Photonics is an international peer-reviewed Open Access quarterly journal published by MDPI.
