Special Issue "Resonator Sensors"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 August 2016)
Micromechanical devices have been proposed as highly-sensitive transducers for the rapid detection and assaying of molecular systems. More specifically, resonant sensors operate by monitoring shifts of resonance frequencies associated to the binding of analytes or under the action of an external force. Such an approach enables the frequency modulation of the output, thus greatly improving the stability/noise-immunity of the reading. Resonant sensor platforms include microcantilevers, quartz crystal microbalance (QCM), bulk acoustic wave resonators (FBARs), and nanomechanical devices. This Special Issue invites contributions on all aspects of resonant sensors, such as related materials science, fabrication platforms, transduction phenomena, and systems integration. Applications include, but are not limited to, biological detection, molecular assaying, gas detection, as well as the sensing of physical forces, such as acceleration, magnetic and electrical fields, and nuclear phenomena.

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 1800 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.
