Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Nowadays particle detectors are employed in a variety of fields, and their application area is still spreading. It spans from fundamental research in particle physics to medical imaging, radiation monitoring, industrial applications, etc.

This has motivated an ever-increasing interest in innovative sensors for charged particle detection and identification with tracking capability. Each application has of course its own peculiarity, but an ideal novel detector is required to be highly granular, low power consuming, thin, fast, radiation tolerant, highly customizable and easy to read-out.

In this framework, I’m glad to edit this Special Issue on “Novel Detectors for Particle Identification and Tracking”.

The Special Issue is dedicated to presenting the most recent advances in the field of particle detection, introducing innovative technologies for charged particle identification and tracking.

Contributions describing new prototypes that exhibit remarkable improvements with respect to actual detectors or interesting concepts for developments of novel detectors are especially welcome.

Survey papers and reviews are also welcomed.

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.
