Advanced Micro- and Nanomaterials for Sensing Applications and Flexible Electronics

Call for Papers

Flexible sensors and electronics are attracting a great deal of attention in recent years due to their potential applications in healthcare monitoring, biomedicine, electronic skin, wearable sensing technology, soft robotics, flat panel displays, safety equipment, smart systems, and future space applications. The main challenges facing the field rely on the development of functional materials with long term stability, high thermal stability, ultrathinness, light weight, stretchability, low modulus, high sensitivity, low drift effects, and high degrees of conformability. Combination of scanning techniques and advanced micro/nanomanipulation technologies provide a state-of-the-art fabrication of the emerging flexible sensing devices based on functional micro/nanomaterials with the desired unique properties.

The aim of this special issue is to publish novel and high quality research papers (experimental, theoretical, or simulation works) as well as review articles addressing recent advances on cutting-edge flexible electronics and sensors based on micro/nanomaterials. Research and review articles should provide a comprehensive insight into characterization and understanding of functional micro/nanomaterials properties. Manuscript submitted must be not published previously or under consideration for publication elsewhere.

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • Design, synthesis, and characterization of functional micro/nanomaterials for sensing applications and flexible electronics
  • Chemical and gas sensors based on micro/nanosensing materials
  • Flexible, stretchable, and wearable sensors and electronics
  • Molecular dynamics simulation and quantum chemical calculations for micro/nanomaterials related to sensing applications and flexible electronics
  • Theories and principles related to micro/nanomaterials, chemical and gas sensing, and flexible electronics
  • Sensors and flexible electronics for future food and agricultural applications
  • Advanced scanning techniques for characterization of sensors and flexible electronics
  • Mechanics of micro/nanomaterials with the application of flexible electronics
