Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Sensors and Actuators using polymeric systems, is one of the most promising fields of “smart polymers”, and it is becoming ever more important to associate artificial sensing and actuating systems with living organisms. Testing of some practical applications has now started in industry. The aim of this Special Issue is to develop a basic understanding of the field, its supporting technologies and current applications. Papers addressing a wide range of applications of polymeric sensors and actuators are sought, including but not limited to recent developments in the following areas: humidity, temperature, chemical, mechanical, optical, waveguide, acoustic, electromagnetic, electrochemical, piezoelectric, electrode, electronic nose, switchable devices, biosensors, wearable sensors and actuators among others. Also of interest are methods of fabrication, as well as information on smart textiles, actuators, and the processing of data. Both review articles and original research papers relating to the application of polymeric sensors and actuators are solicited.

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).
