Special Issue "Acoustic Microfluidic Devices: From Fabrication to Application"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 January 2024 | Viewed by 89
Interests: microfluidic; acoustofluidics
Acoustic and ultrasonic waves cause diverse disturbances in fluids such as streaming, cavitation, or particle/cell manipulation. The recent progress in 3D printing, micromachining, stereolithography, etc., has allowed for higher pressure/thermal resistance and a larger flow rate, which are necessary for industrial-scale applications. The current Special Issue invites papers on acoustic micro- or minifluidic studies with traditional (clean-room, PDMS) or unconventional microfabrication methods. Papers should describe how devices are fabricated and discuss their experimental performance. Topics mentioning their merits and demerits regarding flow rate, environmental resistance, and fabrication cost and facility are particularly interesting. Meanwhile, any creative studies of applications in medicine, chemistry, physics, or other fields are also welcome.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Biosensors 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 2700 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.
