Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Sensor systems have emerged that exhibit extraordinary sensitivity for detecting physical, chemical, and biological entities at the micro/nanoscale.  Particularly exciting is the detection and analysis of molecules on miniature devices that have many possible applications in health, environment, analysis, and security. We are planning a special Sensor issue for the conference Single-Molecule Sensors and nanoSystems S3IC which will be held in Barcelona from 9 to 11 September 2020.

We would like to invite you to contribute a research article or a review article for inclusion in this special issue on “Single-Molecule Sensors and NanoSystems”. This special issue will feature the most exciting advances in this field. This special issue will also provide a high visibility for your work and the work presented as part of S3IC.  We are planning to invite all conference attendees and speakers to contribute to this special issue.
The special issue focusses on advances in optical and electrical measurement methodology, laser interferometry, quantum optics, micro/nanofluidics, control of molecules and reactions at the nanoscale, DNA origami/synthetic molecular machines, in-vivo and wearable sensing materials.
Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • Single-Molecule Devices, Sensor Technologies and Imaging
  • Single-Molecule Spectroscopy and Force Spectroscopy
  • Quantum Limits in Biodetection
  • Quantum Sensors
  • Biophotons and Biophotonics Sensors
  • Molecular Machines, Synthetic Biology and DNA Origami
  • Integrated Sensor Chips and multiplexed Sensing
  • Micro/Nanofluidics and chemical control at the Nanoscale
  • Molecular Electronics
  • Modelling and Simulation
  • Plasmonic 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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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 2600 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.
