Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Gas sensors play an important role in many aspects of technology, industry, or daily life. Reliable detection of various gases in low concentration is mandatory in fields such as industrial plants, automotive technologies, environmental monitoring, or air quality assurance, to name just a few. Research and development of gas sensor devices continue to be faced with numerous challenges in terms of sensitivity, selectivity, promptness of response, robustness, and many other aspects. Fabrication of novel functional materials open up new opportunities, while our fundamental understanding of underlying sensing processes continues to improve. This Special Issue on 'gas sensors' aims to cover various aspects, such as (but not limited to) the preparation of functional materials and micro-fabricated systems for gas sensing, new insights in gas-sensing mechanisms, and the large number of different types of gas-sensing principles (resistive, mechanical, capacitive, etc.).

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.
