Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Environmental sensing of airborne hazards continues to be of paramount importance to defense and security professionals.  As operators continue to be laden with personal protective equipment and command and control technologies, the limitations of extant air monitoring detection/identification technologies present a cumbersome burden on operators.  New technologies based on chemiresistance and/or chemicapacitance are emerging as viable approaches towards the development of miniaturized, multifunctional electronic sensors that afford unprecedented sensitivity, selectivity, and multiplexing to empower end users with unprecedented hazard detection and warning capabilities.

This Special Issue will explore the cutting edge research efforts undertaken by technology leaders in this emerging multidisciplinary field in which surface science, microelectronics, and signal processing converge to yield a new generation of miniature multifunctional sensor technology.

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.
