Gas sensors continue to be a dynamic and fast-emerging field of research for both scientists and developers. Modern advances in the synthesis of functional materials and in the fabrication of smart devices open up new opportunities to create novel sensors with enhanced properties. Fundamental research, at the same time, allows us to understand the underlying principles and sensing mechanisms in greater detail. This special issue on ‘gas sensors' aims to cover all various aspects, such as (but not limited to) the preparation of functional materials and micro-fabricated systems for gas sensing, new insights in gas-sensing mechanisms, and the large number of different types of gas-sensing principles (resistive, mechanical, capacitive, etc.).

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. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as 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 refereed through a 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.
