Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Over the increasing demand of sensors, there is a need for development of functional materials which can be efficient and safe for various sensing application. Functional materials integrated sensors can be used to monitor food safety, infrastructure, smart home, agricultural, and can also be used for biomedical applications such as virus detection in COVID-19 etc. Functional materials are very susceptible to external environmental changes, such as pressure, temperature, relative humidity, and are suitable for sensing applications.  The future of functional materials is strictly dependent on the availability of optimized synthesis techniques that allow the processing and manipulation of properties in a precise manner. This special issue encourages authors, from academia and industry, to submit new research results about technological innovations and novel applications for sensors. The various design of sensors followed by their experimental results integrated with functional materials along with their challenges will be also be encouraged.

The Special Issue topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Functional materials synthesis techniques and properties
  • Characterization techniques of functional materials
  • Characteristics of functional materials in the influence of various physical parameters
  • Design of various sensors including chipless RFID sensors
  • Sensors integrated with functional materials
  • Fabrication, and performance of various sensors

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 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.
