Novel Nanobiophotonic Approaches for Sensing and Imaging

Nanobiophtonics is an emerging field with integrating nanotechnology with biomedical science. This field pro-vides great opportunities to develop new diagnostic and therapeutic methods towards advanced healthcare tech-nology as well as to study fundamentals of light-nano/biomaterial interactions. In these research areas, there have been great achievements in high-sensitive biosensing at the single molecular and cellular level and high-spatial imaging of intracellular structures using nanophotonic structures. These techniques offer an pow-erful way for sensing and imaging various biological enti-ties with a nanoscale resolution beyond the diffraction limit. Furthermore, nanobiophtonics has been continuous-ly advanced and expanded to other fields through the convergence with other functional materials and plat-forms. This special Issue aims to introduce recent inter-disciplinary approaches towards innovative nanobiopho-tonics-based sensing and imaging technologies.
