1D and 2D nanomaterials with reduced physical dimensions and nanoscale structures promise exciting new opportunities for high-performance sensor applications. This Special Issue is searching for advancements in 1D and 2D nanomaterial unique synthesis and preparation techniques, novel integration routes for new and enhanced functionalities, advanced device simulation, and design strategies for sensing applications. We invite researchers to contribute original work and review manuscripts on the following topics to include, but are not limited to:
- Synthesis and device fabrication of 1D and 2D materials including nanotubes, nanowires, nanorods, graphene, graphitic carbon nitride, black phosphorus, 2D organic polymers, 2D transition metal dichalcogenides (TMD), transition metal oxides and low dimensional nitride semiconductors for sensing applications
- Surface functionalization or defect engineering for high-performance sensors (e.g., gas, strain, UV, and magnetic field quantum sensing, etc.)
- Hybrid systems that incorporate both 1D and 2D materials and heterostructures for biosensing and bioimaging applications.
- Hierarchical nanostructures for wearable sensors, health care and environmental monitoring applications
- Interrogation of fundamental properties (e.g., electrical, optical, magnetic, mechanical, piezoelectric, chemical, thermal, electrochemical) for next-generation biodetection and lab-on-chip (LOC) sensors

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. Crystals is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 2600 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.
