Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Advanced sensing technologies capable of high-performance detection of physical, chemical, mechanical, environmental, and/or biological attributes are crucial for applications ranging from point-of-care diagnostics to environmental monitoring. Research in this important area is required to study and improve: sensing interfaces, transduction mechanisms, materials, manufacturing, and real-world applications. To this end, porous nanomaterials have emerged as a powerful and intensely studied platform for constructing innovative and high-performance sensors.

This Special Issue is dedicated to recent advances in sensors and sensing technologies that harness the attractive properties of porous nanomaterials. The topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Sensors in porous semiconductors and dielectrics
  • Sensors in porous metals and other porous nanomaterials
  • Sensors for environmental monitoring
  • Biosensors for healthcare or biomedical applications
  • Real-time sensors, biosensors, and their kinetics
  • Optical, electrical, or mechanical sensors and biosensors
  • In vivo diagnostic applications of porous nanomaterials
  • Advanced design, fabrication, surface modification, and/or analysis techniques
  • Novel form factors and emerging applications of porous nanomaterial-based sensors

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). 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.
