Sensors based upon semiconductor materials, and in particular those employing CMOS technology, are receiving substantial attention because they can be fabricated in high volumes at a very low unit cost. In addition, analogue and digital circuitry can be integrated on a single chip to make smart sensors with digital outputs. These sensors are ideally suitable to high-volume emerging markets in the areas of smart homes, smart phones, healthcare devices and wearable devices.
In this Special Issue, original research articles and review papers on the design, modelling, simulation, fabrication, characterization, packaging and system integration or final applications of semiconductor-based and CMOS-based sensors are welcome. The topics proposed to be covered in this issue include:
- Material research oriented to semiconductor- or CMOS-based sensors, e.g. CNTs, graphene, GaN, SiC
- Processes and fabrication technologies for miniaturized CMOS sensors
- Modelling, design and simulation of microsystems and integrated semiconductor- or CMOS-based sensors
- Semiconductor-based sensors
- CMOS sensors
- Biological, chemical, and physical applications of CMOS sensors, e.g. glucose sensors, gas sensors, flow sensors, IR sensors and pressure sensors.
- Combined sensors or sensor fusion
- Smart interface circuitry and signal processing methods for CMOS sensors

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.
