Special Issue "Micromachined Environmental Sensors"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 25 November 2019.
Man-made pollution with emerging contaminants and its hazardous impact on environment and human health call out for innovative technological measures. The critical environmetal indicators have been traditionally obtained by gas chromatography (GC), high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC), and liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (LC-MS). These analyses, however, are often based on laborious procedures and cannot be applied to rapid, in situ, on-site detection when the time-sensitive, dynamic assessements are crucial. As an increasing number of various sensors are interconnected and produce meaningful data in the era of IoT (internet of things), miniaturized sensors will be able to contribute to the rich data sets for real-time understanding of environmental conditions. The scope of this special issue includes but not limited to sensors for measuring physical, chemical and biological species and conditions in conjunction with environmental changes that arise from or impact on human activities. Various types of transducers based on, for example, chemiresistive, electrochemical and photoelectric working principles can be discussed as well as an array of fabrication technologies based on photolithography, soft lithography and direct printing methods, etc., for producing such devices on rigid and flexible substrates. Authors are welcome to propose novel environment-friendly methods in the design, fabrication and depolyment stages of environmental sensors as well.

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 1400 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.
