Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

It is with great pleasure that we invite you to contribute to our Special Issue entitled "New Trend for Gas Sensor Development: From Sensing Materials to Metrological Evaluation" for Sensors, MDPI.

Gas sensors are an integral part of everyday life and are crucial for monitoring indoor and outdoor air quality. The constant emissions from industry, households and vehicles have a profound effect on our living environment, making the monitoring of these pollutants essential for the well-being of all organisms on Earth. Furthermore, the continuous development of gas sensing technology has extended its application to areas of medical diagnostics and monitoring.

In this context, there is an urgent need for research and development focused on gas sensors based on innovative materials with improved metrological performance. Sensitivity, selectivity, a fast response and fast recovery times are among the parameters that are critical for various applications spanning from environmental monitoring to human health.

Our Special Issue seeks both research and review papers that contribute to the meteorological characterization of chemical–physical innovative materials for the design and fabrication of sensors and sensor-based measurement systems.

We are particularly interested in papers detailing the structural characterization and analysis of sensing properties in advanced and novel materials, such as nanostructured ones. We also welcome new theoretical and experimental insights into gas sensing mechanisms, as well as innovative transduction mechanisms operating across a wide frequency range, from DC to microwave frequencies.

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.
