Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

An emphasis on detection techniques requires the use of advanced materials and new methods. The purpose and appeal of these detection techniques is derived from organic spin crossover, inorganic, and composite materials, which could be unique for sensor fabrication.  The influence of a material’s length, composition, and conformation structure on a material’s properties, and the possibilities of adjusting sensing properties by doping or adding the side-groups, indicate the starting point of multifarious sensing. The role of inter-molecular interactions, polymer and ordered phase formation, as well as behavior under pressure, and under magnetic and electric fields, are also important factors to be considered in the processing of ultra-sensing materials. Topics for this Special Issue include:

Advanced Sensors and Sensing Materials based on/for nanomaterials and nanotechnology; biomaterials and biodevices; optical, electronic, magnetic, structural, computational, composite, ceramic, construction, and engineering materials; environmental and green materials.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Sensors is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1800 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.

CuO and V2O5 graphene quantum tunneling composites (GQTC) presented in this article were produced and their sensory properties were analyzed. The composites were synthesised using two stage high-power milling process, which resulted in materials that have good temeprature and pressure sensory properties. Described production process defines internal structure of materials such that when used as sensor in the desired range, it exhibits a strong percolation effect. The experiment, with controlled changing physical conditions during electrotribological measurement, enabled analyzing of the composites’ conductivity as a function of the sensory properties: applied temperature, pressure, tangential force and wear. The sensory characteristic was successfully modelled by invertible generalized equations, and used to create sensor capable of estimating temperature or pressure in the real time. The developed materials have the potential to be applied in the areas where miniaturization is essential, due to the materials exhibiting good sensory properties in mini and micro scale. Full article
