Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues

The last two decades have witnessed a rapid development of MEMS involving liquid and gas microflows in a wide range of applications. The metrological characterization of such microflows is still a real challenge for the scientists who have to develop innovative experimental techniques and methods able to measure, with a good accuracy, micro and nanoflow rates lower than the resolution of usual sensors.

This Special Issue therefore seeks to showcase recent advances in flowrate measurement techniques, fundamental studies, and applications of micro flowrate measurements regarding both the performance (including stability, reliability, accuracy) of active systems, i.e., macro-, mini- and microdevices delivering micro flowrates, and the associated challenges in the characterization of fluid flows inside passive microsystems. The covered topics include but are not limited to the development of innovative measurement techniques, flowrate sensors or metrological tools for evaluating micro flowrates as well as methods, testing protocols, calibration techniques, and development of new standards. Papers dealing with the development of specific devices delivering controlled microflows for applications in various domains (e.g., medical, chemical and biochemical, energy, pharmaceutical applications) are also welcome.

We look forward to receiving your submissions!

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.
