Special Issue "Metal Oxide Based Nanosensors"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 November 2021.
Interests: metal-oxide thin films; metal-oxide and semiconductor nanostructures; gas sensors; responsive materials; electronic properties of semiconducting nanostructures; electrical properties of nanostructures and nanostructure networks; optical properties of metal-oxide nanostructures; quantum confinement
This Special Issue is aimed at the submission of both review and original research articles related to nanoscale devices based on metal-oxide materials, from material synthesis to nanostructure integration, device characterization, and understanding of their sensing properties. Due to their high sensitivity and low cost, metal-oxide materials are used in a wide range of sensors, from gas sensors to biosensors, mechanical sensors, and photodetectors. Current research activities concentrate on nanoscale devices, due to the opportunity to improve their sensitivity, their selectivity, and reduce their power consumption, which are mandatory criteria for Internet of Things (IoT) applications. More specifically, this Special Issue will focus on new nanosensor device architectures for enhanced sensing performance and lower power consumption, from their synthesis and integration to the understanding of their working principle, including in situ local analysis methods.

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.
