Special Issue "Design, Manufacture and Mechanics of Vibratory Gyroscopes"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 April 2021.
Interests: nonlinear dynamics; vibratory angular rate sensors; gyroscopic systems; rotating flexible multi-body systems; stochastic stability; vibratory energy harvesting
This Special Issue is aimed at reporting new research directions for one of the most useful sensors to emerge this century. Vibratory angular rate sensors, also referred to as Coriolis Vibratory Gyroscopes (CVG), have found several engineering applications in inertial navigation and stabilization for military, aerospace as well as entertainment industries. Thus far, this class of sensors has made the most noteworthy use of the Coriolis acceleration (or its inertial force counterpart), originally observed by the French scientist Gaspard-Gustave Coriolis. Original as well as review articles in the areas of mechanics, component design, fabrication as well as testing are welcome. Research on structural configurations related to resonator design/fabrication, frequency tuning, characterization and other pertinent areas associated with both micro-scale (MEMS-based) as well as macro-scale sensors are encouraged.

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 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.
