Feature issue in Biomedical Optics Express

Biomedical Applications of Terahertz Imaging and Spectroscopy

Submission Opens: 1 September 2017
Submission Deadline: 15 November 2017

Biomedical Optics Express will publish a feature issue covering topics in biomedical applications of terahertz imaging and spectroscopy. The scope of the issue encompasses fundamental research, technology development, biomedical studies and clinical applications. The focus will be on:

  • THz imaging and spectroscopy of tissues (ex vivo, in vivo, skin, breast, burns)
  • Effects of high THz fields on biomedical samples
  • Novel THz near-field imaging and spectroscopy
  • THz combined with other techniques
  • Molecular imaging and therapies
  • Microfluidic THz devices
  • Ophthalmology
  • Gas sensing e.g. exhaled breath analysis
  • Protein Spectroscopy
  • Pharmaceutical Science e.g. dry dissolution testing

All papers need to present original, previously unpublished work and will be subject to the normal standards and peer-review processes of the journals. Submissions are encouraged from all areas of THz imaging and spectroscopy, but the main novelty is expected to be in biomedical applications. The standard Biomedical Optics Express publication charges will apply to all published articles.

Authors are encouraged to include acceptable supplementary materials (visualizations, tabular data, data sets, design files, or code). Please see OSA's guidelines on supplemental material.

To be eligible for publication, submissions that are based on a conference paper must add substantial and/or significant new information to the original conference summary, in accordance with OSA's Policy on Conference Papers.

Manuscripts must be prepared according to the usual standards for submission to Biomedical Optics Express and must be uploaded through OSA's electronic submission system, specifying from the drop-down menu that the manuscript is for the Feature Issue on Biomedical Applications of Terahertz Imaging and Spectroscopy.
