Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Laser functionalization has attracted a great deal of attention due to its ability to modify the properties of a material, at microscale and nanoscale, by keeping the bulk material intact. Thus, it has been used to produce materials and surfaces with unique properties for a wide range of applications, including tribological applications, heat transfer applications, as well as materials with unique wettability, superior corrosion behavior, or optical properties. Moreover, these materials with improved properties can be further exploited as materials for sensors and actuators.

This Special Issue of Sensors welcomes both reviews and original research articles in the field of material functionalization using laser techniques as well as on their use for sensing application.

Topics include, but are not restricted to the following:

  • Laser manufacturing techniques:
    • Laser ablation
    • Laser-induced periodic surface structures
    • Laser interference lithography
    • Laser-induced forward transfer
    • Laser additive manufacturing
  • Sensors based on materials functionalized with laser techniques:
    • Optical sensors
    • Biosensors
    • Gas sensors
    • Chemical sensors

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 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.
