Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue solicits original research and review articles on recent advances in the development of novel electromagnetic structures for sensing applications. Electromagnetic structures such as antennas, frequency selective surfaces, electromagnetic band gaps, and split ring resonators can function as sensors when their properties can be engineered to react to external stimuli, including physical, chemical, and biological stimuli. High sensing resolution often necessitates the use of electromagnetic waves of short wavelength. Thus, these structures tend to be designed for operating at the high frequency end of the spectrum ranging from microwaves to optical frequencies. These same structures can also perform or enhance the non-sensing function in sensors such as signal transmission and reception for radar and wireless sensors. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  • Microwave/millimeter-wave antennas and arrays for sensing applications;
  • Optical frequency antennas and arrays for sensing applications;
  • Frequency selective surfaces for sensing applications;
  • Electromagnetic band gaps for sensing applications;
  • Split ring resonators for sensing applications.

The applications of interest include but not limited to:

  • Human physiological sensing;
  • Structural health monitoring;
  • Crop health monitoring;
  • Food safety analysis;
  • Medical imaging.

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 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. 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 2000 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.
