Special Issue Information

Dear colleagues,

The microelectronics industry supplies numerous miniaturized and high-performance sensors for a variety of applications. The technologies developed have the advantage, due to their intrinsic electronic properties, of providing simple transducers with optimized properties in terms of performance, stability, and above all integration and ease of use. New electronic technologies such as components based on organic materials, components and circuits on flexible substrates or new materials in electronics generate innovations in the general field of electronics applied to various sectors. These new component technologies are also used to develop new innovative sensors. The aim of this special issue is to bring together innovations in technologies and structures of electronic components dedicated to sensor applications. It focuses more particularly on innovations in terms of transduction, directly related to these new technologies or to new architectures of electronic, microelectronic or nanometric scale components. This new generation of sensors, while including the advantages of conventional electronic sensors and their ease of packaging and transduction, allows new objectives to be achieved, either in terms of performance such as sensitivity, selectivity, and energy consumption, or in terms of an opening to other societal applications. These targeted applications may be oriented towards innovations in chemical, mechanical, biological detection that can be integrated into connected objects, robots, industry 4.0. They should contribute to meet the challenges related to health, environment and energy, as a first priority.

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).
