Special Issue "Image Sensors"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 1 December 2018
Although the quality of mainstream CMOS image sensors has reached outstanding levels in the last few years, new challenges are continuously pushing the image sensor research community. An increasing number of applications calls for dedicated image sensors with custom specifications in terms of space and time resolution, efficiency, power consumption and on-chip processing capabilities. These new requirements can often be met only with a combined effort of process, circuit, and system design. An interdisciplinary approach, involving research in material science, electronics and optics, is thus needed to push image sensors beyond the current state-of-the-art.
This Special Issue aims at providing an overview of current leading-edge research in image sensor technology, focusing on the following topics:
- Image sensor process technology and packaging
- Analog and digital circuits for image sensors
- Image sensor characterization and modelling
- Photon-counting image sensors
- Ultra-high frame rate
- Multispectral and hyperspectral imaging
- Vision sensors: on-chip processing and computational imaging
- Ultra-low power imaging
- CMOS hybridization with organic and inorganic materials
- Infrared and THz focal plane arrays
- X-ray and charged particle image sensors

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.
