Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Graphene films have proven remarkably useful for biosensing applications, typically but not exclusively employing an electrochemical approach, where electrolyte displacement from the film during a binding event induces an easily measured change in its properties. However, while the literature on this topic is quite exhaustive, the commercial application of graphene film sensors has been slow. This Special Issue aims to explore the factors that hinder their development.

We seek papers exploring the following:

  • Film selection (exfoliated, epitaxial, or CVD);
  • Functionalization (linker molecules or direct attachment);
  • Methods of use (field-induced conductivity modulation, capacitance, optical spectroscopy, etc.);
  • Performance (sensitivity, specificity, or specific responses);
  • Stability (shelf life, working life, corrosion resistance, and methods of improvement).

Of additional interest is the comparison of these sensors to alternative or more traditional transducers, as well as business models for their commercialization.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Sensors 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 2600 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.
