About the Journal
JESTEC (Journal of Engineering Science and Technology) is a peer-reviewed journal that aims to publish and disseminate original research articles on the latest developments in all fields of engineering science and technology. The journal publishes original papers in English, which contribute to understanding engineering science and improving engineering technology and education. The articles may be theoretical (including computational), experimental or both. The contribution should be unpublished before and not under consideration for publication elsewhere.
JESTEC maintains a standard double-blind peer-review process. The double-blind process means that the author and the reviewer's identity are not known to each other.
JESTEC is an Open Access journal and does not charge readers or their institutions to access the journal articles. Open access supports users' rights to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search, or link to these articles' full texts, provided they are properly acknowledged and cited.
Highly sensitive and miniaturized sensors are highly desirable for real-time analyte/sample detection. In this Letter, we propose a highly sensitive plasmonic sensing scheme with the miniaturized photonic crystal fiber (PCF) attributes. A large cavity is introduced in the first ring of the PCFs for
