Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue deals with the advanced content of micro/nano-sized material development for gas sensors and device development for its application. Specifically, this issue is focused on the following research topics: (1) morphological and structural control of nano- and micro-sized materials with 1-dimensional wire, 2-dimensional sheet, and 3-dimensional hierarchical structure; (2) fabrication of device electrodes using MEMS and NEMS; (3) gas sensing properties for ppb–ppm gases and selective gas detection using the techniques (1) and (2); (4) methane emission control and environmental monitoring rooted in low environmental load; and (5) medical applications such as healthcare.

All researchers conducting research in the area of “Advanced Micro- and Nano-Gas Sensor Materials, Devices, and Applications” and who have results that contribute to the further development of the field are invited to participate in our project. You can contribute both original research papers and reviews to this Special Issue.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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.
