Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Ultrasound has profoundly affected today’s world in a broad range of technologies, including underwater sonar, industrial non-destructive testing (NDT), industrial sensing, precision actuation, material processing and manufacturing, medical imaging, medical therapy, biological sensing, drug delivery, etc. Ultrasonic sensors and transducers, as the core of ultrasound technologies, have been unprecedentedly challenged to meet a broad range of applications. This special issue aims to bring together recent research and development concerning novel ultrasonic sensors and transducers, as well as their applications in medicine, biology, and NDT.

Papers addressing a wide range of ultrasonic sensing and transduction innovations are sought, including but not limited to recent research and developments in the following areas:

  • ultrasonic sensing and transduction materials and structures
  • ultrasonic sensor and transducer design, fabrication, and characterization
  • ultrasound imaging
  • ultrasound therapy
  • ultrasonic biosensors
  • ultrasound in cell culturing and sensing
  • ultrasonic micro/nano-sensors
  • ultrasonic drug delivery
  • ultrasonic surgical tools
  • and other associated devices and applications
Both review articles and original research papers associated with acoustic/ultrasonic sensors, transducers and their applications in medicine, biology, and NDT are solicited. There is a particular interest in papers concerning applications of ultrasonic micro/nano-sensors and transducers in cell and tissue engineering; non-destructive, non-contact or minimally invasive interactions are preferred topics.

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).
