Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The nanoscience and nanotechnology revolution is rapidly producing new sensing and transducing materials. One of their main advantages is the reduction of power consumption. This, together with increased sensitivity, could lead to a breakthrough in their usability that would favor commercial applications such as wearable sensors, robots or unmanned aerial vehicles.

Examples of these advancements include graphene sensing materials or nanostructured metal oxides fabricated with top-down and bottom-up approaches and technologies such as nanolithography, atomic layer deposition or electrospraying among many other possibilities, as well as applications of wearable sensors to monitor pollution or biomarkers.

These new advancements require constant updating and reviewing. Therefore, this Special Issue aims to compile recent advancements in nanomaterial-based low-power gas sensors and detectors and will accept full papers, communications and reviews based on:

  • Technologies for fabricating gas-sensing nanomaterials.
  • Platforms for gas sensors.
  • The sensory characterization of low-power nanostructured gas sensors.
  • Electronic instrumentation for gas sensors
  • Applications of low-power sensors based on nanomaterials.
  • Sensor systems based on low-power nanomaterials for gas sensing.
  • New low-power transducers for sensing applications.
  • The optimization and simulation of low-power sensors
  • Low-power sensors based on 2D materials.
  • Emerging technologies applied to gas sensors.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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 2600 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.
