Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Nanomaterials-based smart structures and devices have attracted considerable attention in a variety of technological applications, including the design and development of high-performance nanomaterials for sensor applications. Sensors play a vital role in a variety of technological applications, such as environmental monitoring, medical treatment and diagnosis, process control and smart agricultural practices.  Nanomaterials have demonstrated suitability as sensing materials for the fabrication of sensor devices due to their high aspect ratio, functional chemistry, and improved physical and chemical properties. Using such nanomaterials and smart structures as nanotransducers significantly improves their sensing ability for analytes. Nanomaterials and smart structures applied as electrodes could potentially improve the sensing mechanism of the electrode surface, facilitating strong interactions between analytes and transducers to achieve the desired sensitivity, selectivity, and stability.

This Special Issue aims to report recent advancements in novel nanomaterials and smart structures for cutting-edge sensor technology in science, biotechnology, medicine, and environmental applications. We encourage submissions covering topics such as:

  • Synthesis of nanomaterials for sensing and biosensing applications;
  • Characterization of nanomaterials for sensing applications;
  • Development of nanomaterials and hybrid smart structures for sensing applications;
  • Applications of nanomaterials and smart structures for environmental monitoring (gas, humidity, and temperature);
  • Applications of nanomaterials and smart structures as biosensors in medicine and biotechnology;
  • Applications of nanomaterials and smart structures for agricultural applications;
  • Applications of nanomaterials and smart structures as mechanical sensors;
  • Design and development of nanomaterials-based sensors for artificial intelligence and IoT;

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. Machines 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 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.
