Advances in nanoscale processing and characterization of polymers, metals, ceramics, and composites
have enabled the development of new types of materials for bioimaging and biosensing. New imaging and sensing technologies are providing researchers and clinicians with a more accurate understanding of normal and pathologic body processes. These innovations reach across a wide variety of fields, including biomedical engineering (such as autologous stem cell implants), physical/chemical devices (for both external and internal monitoring) and hybrid technologies (e.g. optogenetic devices, chemogenetics, thermogenetics, etc.).
Topics covered include, but are not limited to:
- External, wearable monitors
- Internal implants
- Optogenetic devices
- Thermogenetics (sonogenetics)
- Autologous stem cell implants

About the Journal
Applied Physics Reviews (APR) features articles on important and current topics in experimental or theoretical research in applied physics or applications of physics to other branches of science and engineering. APR publishes the following types of articles:
- Original Research: An article reporting on an important and novel research study of high quality and general interest to the applied physics community.
- Reviews: This type of article can either be an authoritative, comprehensive review of established areas of applied physics, or a short timely review of recent advances in established fields or new and emerging areas of applied physics.
Manuscripts considered for publications in Applied Physics Reviews are expected to meet the journal’s standard of acceptance, i.e. to report on original and timely results that advance understanding in the current status of applied physics. Manuscripts submitted for consideration in this Special Topic must meet the same criteria and will undergo the journal’s standard peer review process. The Applied Physics Reviews Editor’s Team will issue a final decision on the submitted manuscripts.
