Special Issue "Printed and Flexible Sensors"
A special issue of Biosensors (ISSN 2079-6374).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 January 2019).
With advancements in the field of printed electronics, there has been a growing interest in the use of printing processes, such as screen, gravure, flexo and inkjet, for the development of sensors on flexible platforms, including plastic, paper and textiles. Printing is an additive manufacturing process that has expanded into the electronic industry, where electronic materials are deposited selectively using electrically functional inks. This has resulted in a paradigm shift to cost efficiently manufacture flexible electronic devices. Further the use of printed sensors, for the manufacture of flexible hybrid electronic systems can overcome the mechanical limitations of conventional electronics fabricated on rigid platforms and can provide solutions for conformal surfaces. The applications for the printed sensors range from monitoring human physiological parameters to asset monitoring in the aerospace, automotive, defense and biomedical engineering industries.
This Special Issue is devoted to recent and original research articles focused on printed sensors fabricated on flexible platforms. The aim of this Special Issue is to discuss various types of printed sensors, based on different configurations and materials, through articles that cover the design, fabrication, testing and application of the novel sensors.Prof. Massood Atashbar
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 papers will be 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 1800 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.
