Interests: gas sensors; solar energy applications; X-ray
Recently, the use of gas sensors has become increasingly important in various fields such as environmental monitoring, medicine, industry, fire safety, and many others. However, at the same time, the complexity of gas sensor's development has also increased, since specific and difficult-to-match requirements are often claimed for the type of detecting gas, operating concentration range, sensitivity, size, long-term stability, energy consumption, and others.
The Special Issue "Micro- and Nanotechnologies in Gas Analysis" aims to present the latest topical research in the field of gas sensors, based on both scientific and engineering achievements, including the development of promising gas-sensitive nanomaterials, selection of a method for measuring and processing of a sensor signal, as well as improving the design of sensors, miniaturization of their components, and optimization of energy consumption. More broadly, in this Special Issue we would like to collect the articles reporting on the achievements and approaches in the development and design of gas sensors using micro- and nanotechnologies. All types of submissions are welcome, including research articles, reviews, and communications. Authors are encouraged to contribute to the Special Issue with the results of their experimental or theoretical research. Topics that will be covered in this Special Issue include (but are not restricted to) the following:
- The synthesis and characterization of gas sensing materials based on nanocrystalline metal oxides, composites, perovskites, sulfides, graphene-based materials, quantum dots, surface modification, and functionalization.
- Evaluation of surface reactivity of gas sensing materials, adsorption and desorption of gases, investigations of gas-sensing mechanisms.
- Semiconductor gas sensing materials for gas detection under UV or visible photoactivation, the use of photoactivation to reduce the energy consumption of sensors.
- Approaches to the miniaturization and integration of gas sensors, reducing the size of sensitive, heating, or light-emitting elements.
- Manufacturing of sensors on flexible or transparent substrates, printed and patterned gas 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. Micromachines 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.
