Special Issue "Micro/Nano Energy and Flexible Sensors"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 January 2022.
Interests: nanogenerator; self-powered MEMS/NEMS; tribotronics; triboelectric powertech
Flexible electronics is a multidisciplinary research frontier involving chemistry, material science, engineering, medicine and so on. With the development of Internet of Things technology, flexible electronic devices have a broad application prospect in the fields of human health, wearable electronics and robotics. Many kinds of flexible electronic devices have been distributed all over the world. The traditional energy supply for flexible electronic devices by chemical batteries is high cost and contributes to environmental pollution. With the growing threat of energy crises and pollution, the search for renewable energy is one of the most urgent challenges for the sustainable development of human civilization. Micro/nano energy is a kind of sustained, maintenance-free, self-powered energy for flexible electronic devices. Micro/nano energy technology is expected to provide a complete micro energy solution for widely distributed flexible electronic devices. The combination of micro/nano energy utilization technology and flexible electronics promotes the development of miniaturization and intelligence of electronic devices and systems. Therefore, the research of micro/nano energy technology and flexible electronics is important for the development of the Internet of Things. Sensors encourages the research of micro/nano energy technology and flexible electronics.

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.
