Special Issue "Advances in Surface Acoustic Wave Sensors"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 June 2020) | Viewed by 19183
Interests: wave propagation; piezoelectricity; surface acoustic waves (SAW) devices for communication systems and sensing applications; surface acoustic waves (SAW) filters and resonators; surface acoustic waves (SAW) sensors
Surface acoustic wave sensors have been around for a long time. Over the past years, many research groups have developed surface acoustic wave (SAW) sensors for a wide range of applications, including high-temperature, strain, high and low pressure, acceleration, gyroscope, and torque sensors. SAW sensors have also been developed for chemical and bio-chemical applications, including implantable bio-sensors. Many fully- passive and wireless solutions have also been devised for harsh environment applications, due to the intrinsic properties of SAW sensors. Emerging application fields include wearable SAW sensors for bio-medical applications, and implantable SAW sensors for structural health monitoring applications.
The main goal of this Special Issue is to capture the current state-of-the-art and contemporary progress and perspectives of the SAW sensor technology. Both research papers and review articles will be considered. Review papers on each of the main types of SAW sensors are especially welcome. This includes “classical” SAW sensors like resonator- and reflective delay lines for various applications, as well as more advanced solutions based on new or improved materials and multilayered guiding structures.

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 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 2400 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.
