Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Information flow in the central nervous system consumes little energy; the human brain, as a typical highly integrated iontronic center processing unit enabled by nanoconfined quantum superfluid, consumes only about 12 W. From the ubiquitous Internet of Things (IoTs) to highly integrated human brains, energy efficiency plays a critical role in the flow of information. Nanomaterials, nanostructures and nanointerfaces play essential roles in highly efficient energy and information flow, offering possibilities for novel sensors.

The present Special Issue of Nanomaterials presents the current state of the art in the use of nanomaterials, nanostructures, or nanointerfaces to generate new sensors, including approach perception sensors, gesture sensors, touch sensors, electronic tongues, self-powered sensors, etc. We also welcome work on new nanomaterials and nanostructures, for example nanofluidic materials and iontronic materials, for novel sensing technology and systems.

We invite contributions from leading groups in the field with the aim of giving a balanced view of the current state of the art in this discipline.

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. Nanomaterials is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2900 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.
