Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

High-frequency sensors are now ubiquitous, not only in the traditional domain of electronic communications, but increasingly so in many areas of the chemical, biological and medical sciences. This call for a Special Issue of Sensors invites contributions from scientists and engineers from all disciplines involved with innovations using high frequency sensors, specifically those operating from RF thorough microwave to mm wave frequencies. This also includes high frequency applicators, which may have the useful dual role of both excitation and sensing.

The unique advantages of such devices make them useful for a wide range of techniques such as dielectric measurements of chemical processes in catalysis and synthesis, EPR and NMR, where new innovations are still emerging. Advances in these measurements have renewed momentum and have led to new in operando techniques for electromagnetic sensing of reaction conditions.

Whilst cross-disciplinary contributions are welcomed, so too are those from the traditional high frequency circuits community and contributions that deal with fundamental interactions of high frequency electromagnetic fields with material samples of all types, which underpins all sensing and applicator platforms.

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.
