Special Issue "Nanostructured Hybrid Materials Based Opto-Electronics Sensors"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 September 2018).
Dr. Ilaria Rea
The field of opto-electronic sensors, based on nanostructured hybrid materials, is continuously expanding due to the advent of extra-performing transducers that use low-dimensional analogues of traditional ones,such as graphene, high bandgap semiconductors, plasmonic nanostructures. Label-free biosensing comprises various techniques, ranging from, but not limited to, nano-photonics, advanced spectroscopies, opto-electronic resonant measurements. These technologies have reached high TRL products in a really wide range of applications in biological research, medical diagnostics, and environmental monitoring, as well as applications in defence, security and agriculture.
We warmly invite all of you to submit manuscripts for this forthcoming Special Issue in all aspects relevant for nanostructured hybrid material based opto-electronic biosensors. Both short updated reviews and original research articles are welcome. Reviews should be focused on critical overview of state-of-the-art technologies utilizing label-free optical sensing mechanism relevant to biosensing. Original research papers reporting on innovative devices or new concepts and fundamental studies with potential relevance to opto-electronic biosensing, as well as surface functionalization strategies for transducers preparation are also of interest. We look forward to and welcome your participation in this Special Issue.

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 1800 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.
