Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The GSR (Gigahertz Spin Rotation) sensor is based on the fact that a Co-based amorphous magnetic wire has a surface magnetic domain structure with circumferential spin alignment. Using a micro-coil wound around the wire, this sensor detects the change in magnetization caused by the fast spin rotation phenomenon that occurs when the GHz pulse is energized. The characteristics of the sensor include high sensitivity in the GHz range, sinusoidal output of the magnetic field, good linearity, low noise, and no hysteresis. Current projects in progress are research on the principle of GSR sensors, development of Co-based amorphous magnetic wire and micro-coil manufacturing technology, electronic circuits for GHz pulse driving, GSR device design, biomagnetism detection sensors, electronic compass gyros, and current sensors using GSR sensors for automotive application. This Special Issue is dedicated to the GSR sensor and its recent progress, as well as its outlook for future research and development.

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.
