Special Issue "Nanowires and Nanoprobes – Functionalized Arrays"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 29 February 2020.
Nanowires not only represent one of the most important enabling technologies in electronics but have also lead to sensors with molecular scale sensitivity. This includes nanowire transistors and functionalized nanowire probes. We are calling for papers that highlight advances in nanowire research that may lead functional systems with an emphasis on detector arrays. As examples, we hope to gather articles that relate progress in the fabrication and utilization of arrays of nanowire transistor sensors and vertically oriented functional nanoprobes. The range of materials spans from Si and Ge to BN, metal oxides and carbon nanotubes. In recent research directed self-assembly has been utilized for device fabrication and functionalization. These platforms have exciting potential as electrical, chemical, optical, magnetic, and mechanical sensors that can provide highly sensitive spatial and temporal information about the systems being studied. We would also like to highlight the growing biological applications. It is exciting that in the limits of even today’s nanofabrication technology there is the potential for sub-optical spatial resolution. In consideration of this potential, this Special Issue seeks to compile recent advances and review articles that capture the scope of this important area as it relates to both device architecture and fabrication, functionalization, and applications.

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. Micromachines 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 1600 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.
