In recent years, multifunctional-nanomaterials-based semiconducting devices and sensors have become one of the most researched topics. Due to changes in conductivity, semiconductor materials are widely employed in solar cells, thermoelectric materials, diodes, electrochemical cells, and sensors, among other applications. In addition to being a crucial material as an active layer, they also exhibit remarkable outcomes as substrates and supporting layers. Semiconductor-based devices respond differently to humidity, temperature, light, gas, etc. Therefore, the same device may perform many functions simultaneously, which not only reduces their size but also minimizes manufacturing costs. These devices can be manufactured using a variety of techniques, such as screen printing, spin coating, spray coating, rubbing-in, different gravity deposition, thermal deposition, chemical vapor deposition, etc., which provides a vast space for scientific research not only at the industrial level, but also at the domestic and academic levels. Generally speaking, semiconductor devices are more dependable, stable, affordable, and accessible. Due to the great sensitivity of their reactions, these devices are not only utilized as sensors, but also as one of the primary materials to meet the rising energy demands. Researchers are forced to employ free natural resources such as the sun to generate energy through solar cells and thermoelectric generators, which drives innovation in nanomaterials-based multi-functional semiconductor devices. Consequently, this Special Issue aims to feature research papers, brief communications, and review articles that focus on novel methodological developments in semiconductor-based devices and sensor applications not only in engineering and medical industries, but also in research development and domestic-level applications.

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.
