Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Semiconductors are ubiquitous across our lives. They constitute the basis of our current electronics and communications. Our increased ability to fabricate nanostructures has changed the field in recent years. Nanostructures enable access to new physical mechanisms facilitating the development of new functionalities. The aim of this Special Issue is to present the multidisciplinary efforts to integrate sensors that provide the information to keep enhancing our quality of life—for example, making our life safer and more secure, improving our healthcare, or providing new ways to obtain clean energy

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.
