Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Advances in nanomaterials and nanofabrication techniques have enabled the development of technological platforms for chemical and optical sensors relevant for various applications, such as environmental air quality monitoring. In particular, devices based on one-dimensional nanostructures such as nanowires and nanorods have attracted considerable attention due to excellent performance, high surface-to-volume ratio, and suitability for the realization of miniaturized sensors and multifunctional sensor systems.

This Special Issue of Sensors will focus on recent developments in the field of nanowire-based device technologies for sensing applications. We welcome reviews and original research articles that focus on advances in synthesis and growth, fabrication processes and technologies, nanomaterial properties, surface functionalization techniques, device integration concepts, multifunctional nanomaterials, new key enabling technologies, advanced characterization techniques, in situ and in operando measurements, sensing mechanisms, and device performance improvements that are relevant for the sensor technology communities.

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.
