Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In the past decade, research on sensors based on nanowires and nanotubes has experienced a phenomenal growth because of the nanostructures extraordinary enabling properties. A variety of sensors rely on physical and chemical changes at the surface to monitor specific changes in targeted measurands. Because of the intrinsic high ratio between surface and volume, nanostructures can be easily functionalised, allow for an enhanced sensitivity in a very compact configuration and their small size is often also associated to an extremely fast response time. Furthermore, some nanomaterials behave in a fundamentally different way with respect to their macroscopic counterparts, paving the way for their exploitation in a variety of sensors exploiting their optical, electrical and chemical properties.This special issue will include recent results in the development of nanotubes and nanowires in sensing and in the study of the theory explaining their working mechanisms.

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).
