Topical Collection in Sensors: Ultrasound Transducers
Acoustics has profoundly affected today’s world in a broad range of technologies, including underwater sonar, audio communication, industrial non-destructive testing (NDT), industrial sensing, chemical and biological sensing, smart city, precision actuation, material processing and manufacturing, medical imaging, medical therapy, etc. Acoustic sensor and ultrasound transducer materials, design, fabrication, and characterization have been unprecedentedly challenged to meet such a broad range of applications. This Special Issue aims to bring together recent research and development concerning, a) novel acoustic sensors and their applications in medicine, biology, and smart electronics; and b) ultrasound transducers and their applications in medical imaging and drug delivery.
Papers addressing a wide range of acoustic sensing and transduction innovations are sought, including but not limited to recent research and developments in the following areas: Acoustic sensing and transducer materials and structures; acoustic sensor design, fabrication, characterization and their applications in medicine, biology and smart electronics; ultrasound transducers design, fabrication, characterization and their applications in ultrasound medical imaging and drug delivery; ultrasound therapy; ultrasound gene transfection; ultrasonic tweezers; acoustic assisted bio-manufacturing; and other associated acoustic devices for applications in medicine, biology and smart electronics. Both review articles and original research papers associated with acoustic/ultrasonic sensors, transducers and their applications in medicine, biology, and smart electronics are solicited. There is a particular interest in papers concerning acoustic micro/nano-sensors and micromachined ultrasound transducers for applications in medicine, biology and smart electronics are preferred topics.

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. Sensors 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 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.
