The interest in and potential of electromagnetic technologies for sensing purposes in medical, environmental, and industrial contexts has been increasing exponentially. The benefits of electromagnetic biosensors include minimally invasive, label-free, and cost effective monitoring, probing, and treatment. For instance, wearable and implantable sensors for monitoring of vital signs and neural activity represent the key enablers towards personalized medicine and electroceuticals. Furthermore, radiofrequency and terahertz sensors are increasingly used for quality control in food industry and for the detection of environmental pollutants. The purpose of this Special Issue is to provide an update on the recent research advancements in the field of electromagnetic biosensors covering the band from low frequencies to terahertz. Original research articles and reviews are encouraged.
The scope of this Special Issue include, but is not limited, to:
Wearable and implantable electromagnetic sensors
Antennas for in- and on-body sensors
Wireless power transfer for autonomous sensors
Electromagnetic characterization applied to biosensors
Biocompatibility of implantable devices
Nanomaterials for sensing purposes

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.
