Special Issue in Actuators: Miniature and Micro-Actuators
MEMS resonators are receiving substantial industrial attention and some of them are already commercially available. Substituting existing products based on bulk materials, in fields such as communications, timing, acoustics and sensor technologies, with reduced size, lower cost and higher performance alternatives is now possible, with potential for manufacturing by advanced silicon integrated circuits technology.
In this Special Issue, a wide range of topics are covered, including the design, fabrication, characterization, packaging and system integration or final applications of Micro/Nano-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS/NEMS)-based resonators:
Material research oriented to microsystem resonators
Processes and fabrication technologies for miniaturized resonators
Modelling, design and simulation of microsystems and integrated resonators
Electrostatic, piezoelectric, mechanical, thermal, acoustic, magnetic or any physical resonator principles
RF-MEMS/NEMS devices and circuits
Resonant sensors and actuators
Chemical and bio-MEMS applications of resonant micro- and nanodevices
Calibration, characterization and testing techniques for resonant MEMS/NEMS
Reliability and failure analysis
System integration, CMOS-MEMS and interface electronics
Applications and markets, control and measurement systems based on resonant MEMS.
Prof. Dr. José Luis Sánchez-Rojas
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 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.
