Nowadays, the necessity to gather information of a wide range of parameters appears to be crucial in many fields. It is especially important in medicine, health monitoring, and telemedicine. During last years, biophotonics has gained popularity in those areas because of their unique advantages: relatively simple configuration, high resolution, potentially low cost and possibility of providing easy control and acquisition of measurement data.

A new Special Issue focusing on Optoelectronics Biophotonics in Europe of Frontiers of Optoelectronics will highlight achievements in biophotonics in this continent. We solicit papers that report on major developments and applications in the fields of biophotonics that have a significant impact.

We encourage submission of original research works, reviews, especially in the following topics:

The key topical areas are:
 ●   Biomedical imaging 
 ●   Nonlinear microscopy
 ●   Modeling of light propagation in turbid tissue-like scattering media
 ●   Tissue polarimetry
 ●   Light-tissue interactions
 ●   Tissue biopsy
 ●   Cancer diagnosis and tissue characterization
 ●   Tissue optical clearing 
 ●   Biophotonic sensors
 ●   Raman sensing and imaging
 ●   Nanoprobes and nanoparticles in biophotonics

Submission Deadline: April 1, 2017
Please submit your papers online via http://journalsubmission.hep.com.cn or by email to the guest editors and foc@mail.hust.edu.cn.
