Recent Advances in Sensors in Electromechanical Transducers
The past decade has witnessed substantial improvements in the old technology of electromechanical transducers. Pressure sensors, motion and acceleration sensors, and MEMS actuators have all seen dramatic improvements in sensitivity and dynamic range in addition to substantial miniaturization. Sensors that are based on the principle of capacitance variation, for instance, have benefited from the recent advances in nanotechnology and nanofabrication. MEMS-based sensors and electromechanical actuators have also seen enormous advances driven by nanotechnology. A new breed of electromechanical/optical sensors has found applications in sound and image processing.
This Special Issue is dedicated to new manuscripts that describe recent advances in electromechanical sensors and transducers. The topic is broad and is dedicated to the audience of practicing industry engineers, corporate researchers, and graduate students in electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, and physics. The Special Issue topics include, but are not limited to:
- Sensors that are based on the principle of capacitance variation.
- Sensors that are based on the principle of inductance variation.
- Electromechanical sensors that depend on radioactive sources.
- Sensors that are based on nanotechnology, especially on carbon nanotubes and nanowire sensing elements.
- Electro-optical sensors and transducers.
- Novel new sensor and transducer designs.

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 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.
