Special Issue "Sensors for Microwave Imaging and Detection"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 June 2018).
Interests: microwave and millimeter-wave imaging and detection; inverse scattering; high-frequency electromagnetism; microwave devices and antennas; numerical methods for computer-aided analysis and design
This Special Issue on “Sensors for Microwave Imaging and Detection” aims at bringing together a rapidly-growing community of engineers and scientists who work in this field. This research defines the next frontier of wireless technology. The end of the 20th century saw the first wireless revolution which brought about ubiquitous mobile communications. Since, we have witnessed dramatic decrease in the price and size of microwave and millimeter-wave electronics along with the advent of the radio-on-a-chip (RoC), the software-defined radio (SDR), and the single-chip radars operating well into the 70-GHz bands. This has enabled exponential growth of applications in imaging, diagnostics and vehicle guidance. From automotive radar to tissue imaging, from concealed-weapon detection to search and rescue, microwave-sensor research aims at improving our safety and our quality of life.
This Special Issue includes articles that review the state-of-the-art in microwave and millimeter-wave sensors and devices used in both far-field and near-field measurements. It also presents original research on new devices and system-level architectures. A wide variety of applications are addressed, including biomedical imaging, biosensing, biotelemetry, concealed-weapon detection, non-destructive testing, automotive radar, and vehicle guidance.

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.
