In recent years, stretchable and flexible electronics integrated with various sensors, including strain sensors, ECG/EMG sensors, and temperature sensors, have broken through the limitations of traditional, rigid electronics, and have profoundly changed human lifestyles. Stretchable sensors and stretchable electrodes in particular are required for the monitoring of body deformation, motion, and ECG/EMG signals in applications of health monitoring, human–computer interactions, and extended reality. By the design of stretchable, conductive, nanomaterial-composed microstructures (metal nanofilms, metal nanowires, metal nanoparticles, carbon nanotubes, nanotechnology-based textiles, etc.), the functions of electrodes and sensors can be successfully realized, and the conductive/sensing performance can be regulated by the geometrical design. Therefore, the development of stretchable sensors/electrodes based on stretchable conductive nanomaterial-composed microstructures and the related theories and applications are of great interest in the research community. This Special Issue of Nanomaterials aims to highlight the latest advances in research and application of flexible sensors based on micro/nano materials and structures.
Research areas may include (but are not limited to) the following:
- Deformation mechanisms of stretchable, conductive, nanomaterial-composed microstructures;
- Sensing mechanisms of stretchable, conductive, nanomaterial-composed microstructures;
- Development of stretchable sensors/electrodes;
- Nanofilms, nanowires, and nanoparticles;
- Mechanically guided structural designs;
- Metal-based stretchable sensors/electrodes;
- Carbon-based stretchable sensors/electrodes;
- Textile-based stretchable sensors/electrodes;
- Advanced manufacturing processes.
We invite authors to contribute original research and communication articles or comprehensive review articles through the webpage of Nanomaterials entitled “Research and Application of Flexible Sensors Based on Micro/Nano Materials and Structures”.
We look forward to receiving your contributions.

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.
