About S&M


Objectives and Scopes


Sensors and Materials is designed to provide a forum for people working in the multidisciplinary fields of sensing technology, and publishes contributions describing original work in the experimental and theoretical fields, aimed at understanding sensing technology, related materials, associated phenomena, and applied systems. Expository review papers and short notes are also acceptable.

The journal consists of the following three major sections: Principles and theories of sensors and transducers, Devices, Application and systems.

• Optical Sensors and Imagers (Infrared, Visible, UV, etc.)
• Other Physical Sensors (Temperature, Magnetic, Electromagnetic, X-ray, Radiation, etc.)

Bio/Chemical Sensors

• Gas Sensors (Humidity, Odor, Particulate, etc.)
• Chemical Sensors (Ion, Taste, etc.)
• Biosensors (DNA/RNA, Cellular, Immune, etc.)
• Biochemical Sensing Systems (Lab on Chip, BioMEMS/NEMS, Biomimetic, etc.)

Materials
