Semiconductor electronics and photonics based on advanced nanomaterials and nanotechnologies have been the key driving force of micro/nano-sensors. Nowadays, with the development of high-speed data communication, the growing demand for micro/nano-sensors presents unprecedented opportunities and challenges. In the building of Smart Cities, micro/nano-sensors are the essential component of the Internet of Things (IoT) and encounter high demand for their categories, performance, application scenarios, etc. Various sensors are needed for different application fields, such as environmental pollution monitoring, hazardous chemical spill warning, early disease diagnosis, and healthcare reminders. Measurement accuracy is vital for some practical applications. Thus, excellent sensing performance is required for the sensors to hit these metrics.
Rational design for advanced nanomaterials is a promising solution for fabricating sensors and enhancing their sensing performance. The advanced technologies, including crystal facet controlling, vacancies regulation, morphology design and controllable assembling of individual nanomaterials, and hetero-integration of multi-composition, multi-structure and multi-function at the nanoscale, would create a new generation of integrated micro/nano-sensors with unprecedented performance or unique functions to break the boundaries of traditional technologies.
The Special Issue “Advanced Nanomaterials and Nanotechnologies for Micro/Nano-Sensors” seeks papers on chemical/biological sensors based on the electrical or optical properties of advanced novel nanomaterials. Authors are invited to submit articles focused on trace detection, selective enhancement, fast response, and other aspects. Papers on the characterization and evaluation of sensing performance or the completion of sensing mechanistic discussions of experimental phenomena will also be very well received.

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.
