Electrostatic sensors and actuators are commonplace in MEMS devices due to their simplicity, fast response, low power/energy densities, and their integration capability with CMOS electronics. Even though electrostatics has been employed for a few decades, there have been recent advancements that deserve higher visibility at both the academic and end-user levels.
Therefore, we invite the academic community and relevant industrial partners to submit both review and original research articles to this Special Issue, with an emphasis on the following:
- Self-powered electrostatic MEMS sensors and actuators
- Repulsive force electrostatic actuators
- Restricted (e.g., dimpled) electrostatic actuators
- Electrostatic levitation-based sensors and actuators
- Electrostatic microfluidic sensors and actuators
- Electrostatic formation
- Electrostatic MEMS modeling
- Electrostatic fringe field resonators
- Post-touchdown electrostatic modeling and behavior
- Novel materials in electrostatic MEMS actuators and sensors
- Material selection for electrostatic MEMS actuators and sensors
- Electrostatic MEMS actuators utilizing novel electrode shapes and sizes for improved motion
- Electrostatic MEMS flapping actuators
- Piezoelectric and capacitive micromachined ultrasonic sensors and transducers
- Electrostatic micropumping
- Miscellaneous topics on electrostatic sensors and transducers

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 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 2400 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.
