In the last 20 years, there has been an active and comprehensive study of magnetoelectric (ME) composites due to their multifunctionality and possible new applications in science and technology. Some properties of ME composites, such as their direct and inverse ME effects associated with the change of electric polarization/magnetization in response to external magnetic/electric fields, have shown wide possibilities for their practical application.
One of the first proposed applications of ME composites was a magnetic field sensor . Then, after more studies that achieved a pico-Tesla sensitivity of a sensor at room temperature [2,3], the number of works on ME sensors increased dramatically. Research on ME sensors was devoted to the study of various physical parameters in a wide frequency range, including microwaves and optics.
This Special Issue of Sensors will be dedicated to highlight the theory, design, and application of ME sensors, describing the main directions of their development in order to summarize and provide recommendations for future research.

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.
