Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
Solid-state semiconductor gas sensors have attracted a great deal of attention over the past two decades or more due to their importance in gas analysis and safety applications. The chemical sensitivity of a semiconductor surface serves as a way to transduce the chemical information around the surfaces into an electrical signal for gas-sensing applications.
Sensor technology development has a long history. It includes thick film and thin film technology, and, recently, semiconductor nanotechnology. Size-dependent physical properties are very important in the theory and construction of semiconductor devices, metal and semiconductor nanoparticles are basic components of recently used gas-sensitive materials.
This Special Issue of Nanomaterials will attempt to cover the recent advancements in semiconductor gas sensor technology, its theory of operations, and the role of nanoparticles and nano-sized structures for sensor 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. Nanomaterials 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 2200 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.
