Nanomaterials have made significant impacts in all aspects of human life. Their unique attributes, including large surface-area-to-volume ratios, quantum confinement, near-field coupling and meta-material effects, have led to application opportunities in biological and physical sciences as well as engineering. With the emergence of the Internet of Things (IoT), which requires a continuous supply of feedback data on a massive scale, high-performance sensors for collecting all kinds of parameters are needed. Sensors for temperature, photons, pollutants and different kinds of objects, with operation parameters specially optimized for their respective applications are always in great demand. This Special Issue on “Nanomaterials Based Sensors” aims to provide a venue for reporting the latest advancements in the field. The theme covers new nanomaterials, novel devices/systems, signal transduction, and new concepts that have implication on sensing performance. Submission may take the form of reviews, regular research papers, short communications or application notes. We hope that this Special Issue will ultimately become a preferred source of information for researchers or application specialists working on high-performance sensing technology.

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 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.
