Special Issue in Micromachines: Flexible and Stretchable Microwave Devices: Design, Fabrication and Applications
A broad range of materials proposed for bio-integrated sensors and systems spans from flexible and stretchable forms of conventional inorganic electronic materials to intrinsically soft biomaterials, elastomer composites, hydrogels, liquid metals, organic electronic materials, or emerging nanomaterials and structures. Demonstrated devices include sensors, actuators, energy harvesters, power supplies, and antennas with representative examples from skin-like electronics, implantable electronics, cellular bioelectronic interface, 3D electronic scaffolds, among many others. Various approaches to integrating these materials and devices for advanced bio-electronic systems include additive manufacturing, mechanically guided 3D assembly, micro/nanoscale fabrication, transfer printing, and many others. The latest developments in theoretical, computational, and experimental studies on fundamental materials science, novel design and function of sensors and devices, new fabrication techniques, and potential biomedical applications are all of the interest for this Special Issue.

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 2000 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.
