Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The Special Issue aims to provide a forum for a discussion of recent advances in materials and devices that are sensitive to light, magnetic field, electric field, thermal irradiation, mechanical force, and gas. The editors encourage scientists to publish their experimental and theoretical results in as much detail as possible. The full experimental details must be provided so that results can be reproduced.

The scope of the issue includes basic research on the structure, properties of sensitive materials, as well as design of the sensitive devices based on them.
