Over the last two decades, room-temperature semiconductor detectors (RTSDs) have been extensively proposed for X-ray and gamma-ray spectroscopy and imaging, opening new perspectives in several application areas such as synchrotron science, homeland security, medical imaging, and astrophysics. RTSDs are an important class of X-ray and gamma-ray sensors able to perform high-resolution spectroscopy near room-temperature conditions. Several high-Z and wide-bandgap compound semiconductors (CdTe, CdZnTe, GaAs, HgI2, TlBr) have been developed, and continuous efforts have been made in the advancement of the crystal growth and device fabrication technologies.
In this framework, we are glad to edit this Special Issue on “Room Temperature Semiconductor Detectors: Development and Applications".
This Special Issue aims to receive submissions of both review and original research articles related to the state-of-the-art in RTSD sensors as well as prospects for future developments and applications.Dr. Leonardo Abbene

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.
