Special Issue "Implantable Biosensor and Chemical Sensor Systems for Biomedical and Environmental Monitoring Applications"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 April 2021).
Sensor systems have become central for monitoring disease progression, detecting rare events, and tracking daily activities. In addition to sensors, these systems require electronics for data acquisition; signal processing and machine learning for extracting useful information; packaging for reliable sealing, support, and safety; and power subsystems for extended battery life. In this Special Issue of Materials we seek contributions on smart sensor systems for biomedical monitoring applications. We invite manuscript submissions emphasizing system or subsystem designs that take advantage of the unique properties of specific sensing mechanisms, or applications. Approaches taking advantage of optimizations crossing multiple subsystems are especially welcomed.
The topics of interest include but are not limited to:
- Wearable and implantable sensors and low-power sensor interface circuits
- Sensor fabrication, integration, and modelling
- Sensor arrays and related issues
- Wireless power transfer to implantable systems and energy harvesting
- Power circuits and battery technologies tailored to the specific sensing mechanisms
- Biocompatibility, sensor fouling, and drift
- Point-of-care systems and lab-on-chip
Submissions from areas not explicitly listed above but related to this Special Issue and extensive critical reviews with topics of relevance to this Special Issue will also be considered, but it is advisable to coordinate with the Guest Editor prior to submission of the manuscript.

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. Materials is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2000 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.
