Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue comprises papers presented at the EUROSENSORS 2018 Conference, held from 9–12 September 2018 in Graz, Austria. This was the 32nd Edition of the highly successful EUROSENSORS conference series (held for the very first time 1987 in Cambridge, UK), which is Europe’s largest conference in the field of sensors, actuators, micro- and nanosystems, as well as related materials and fabrication technologies. A total of 563 papers were submitted to this year’s conference, which resulted in 135 contributed talks and 303 posters, with an acceptance rate of 80%. Four plenary talks and eight invited talks complemented the excellent scientific programme. More than 550 participants from academia, research institutes and companies joined this year’s EUROSENSORS 2018 conference!

We are proud to announce our agreement with MDPI to publish a Special Issue on EUROSENSORS 2018 and cordially invite all contributors to publish a full paper of their EUROSENSORS 2018 contribution in this Special Issue of the journal Sensors (ISSN1424-8220; Impact Factor 2.475; https://www.mdpi.com/journal/sensors) published online by MDPI, Switzerland. According to the publishing rules, the full paper should be based on your conference presentation and the 4-page extended abstracts, and should be expanded to the size of a research article (add about 50% new materials).

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 bimonthly 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.

Vanadium pentoxide thin films were deposited onto insulating support by means of rf reactive sputtering from a metallic vanadium target. Argon-oxygen gas mixtures of different compositions controlled by the flow rates were used for sputtering. X-ray diffraction at glancing incidence (GIXD) and Scanning Electronic Microscopy (SEM) were used for structural and phase characterization. Thickness of the films was determined by the profilometry. It has been confirmed by GIXD that the deposited films are composed of V2O5 phase. The gas sensing properties of V2O5 thin films were investigated at temperatures from range 410–617 K upon NO2 gas of 4–20 ppm. The investigated material exhibited good response and reversibility towards nitrogen dioxide. The effect of metal-insulator transition (MIT) on sensor performance has been observed and discussed for the first time. It was found that a considerable increase of the sensor sensitivity occured above 545 K, which is related to postulated metal-insulator transition. Full article
