Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Micro- and nanomechanical systems are of interest from both fundamental and technological standpoints. The understanding and control of composition, nanostructure, and interface properties is important for the development of nanostructured materials. Furthermore, mechanical resonators and static cantilever have been demonstrated to be highly promising platforms for the detection of small forces and target analytes. Mesoscopic dimensions and high-frequency operation also open up fascinating possibilities for sensitive studies of extrinsic processes such as surface and near-surface effects, and of other fundamental phenomena such as coupling with lattice vibrations and interaction with electromagnetic fields. This special issue will cover all topics relevant to the science, technology and applications of nanomechanical systems. Topics of interest include, but not limited to, modeling of nanomechanical and resonant behavior, materials development and fabrication techniques, novel transduction approaches, understanding and applications of nanooptomechanical, nanoelectromechanical and nanomagnetomechanical phenomena, as well as applications to sensing platforms operating in both the static and resonant regime.

Submission

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.

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).
