Flexible Micro/Nano Sensors

Flexible micro/nano sensors have attracted tremendous attention due to their broad applications in many emerging areas including health monitoring, human–machine interfaces, robotics, sports and entertainment. Over the past two decades, various methods and nanostructured materials have been explored to construct flexible micro/nano sensors. This special issue is dedicated to advance the development of flexible micro/nano sensor technology and explore the latest research findings and applications in this field. We encourage original contributions covering, but not limited to, the following topics:

  • Design and fabrication methods for novel flexible micro/nano sensors
  • Unconventional materials used for flexible micro/nano sensors
  • Influence of micro/nano structures on the performance of flexible sensors
  • Mechanical characteristics and stability studies of flexible micro/nano sensors
  • Power and signal processing technologies for flexible micro/nano sensors
  • Micro/nano strain/pressure/temperature and multifunctional sensors
  • Application of flexible micro/nano sensors

We welcome high quality review and original articles, and papers should be prepared in accordance with the publication guidelines of the International Journal of Smart and Nano Materials. Manuscripts submitted for publication in this special issue must not have been previously published or under consideration elsewhere.


All manuscripts submitted to this Article Collection will undergo a full peer-review; the Guest Advisor for this collection will not be handling the manuscripts (unless they are an Editorial Board member). Please review the journal scope and author submission instructions prior to submitting a manuscript.

The deadline for submitting manuscripts is 1 May 2024.

Please contact Zhan Yu at [email protected] with any queries regarding this Article Collection.

Please be sure to select the "Flexible Micro/Nano Sensors" from the drop-down menu in the submission system.


Prof. Qingbin Zheng received his Ph.D degree from Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) in 2011. Prior to joining The Chinese University of Hong Kong, Shenzhen (CUHKSZ) as an Assistant Professor in 2019, he held various academic positions worldwide, including Research Assistant Professor of the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at HKUST and Alexander von Humboldt Research Fellow at Leibniz Institute of Polymer Research Dresden, Germany. Prof Zheng has received many awards including National High-Level Young Talent, Presidential Young Fellow of CUHKSZ, Fellow of the International Association of Advanced Materials, Junior Fellow of the HKUST Jockey Club Institute for Advanced Study, and Alexander von Humboldt Fellowship of Germany. Prof. Zheng’s research focuses on advanced carbon materials, ranging from nanocomposites with graphene, carbon nanotubes, carbon nanofibers and 2D materials, to nanostructured materials for various wearable applications. He has published more than 80 peer reviewed papers in top-ranked scientific journals such as Progress in Materials Science, Materials Today, Advanced Functional Materials, ACS Nano, Angewandte Chemie International Edition, Small, Chemical Engineering Journal, Nano-Micro Letters, Materials Horizons, and Carbon, with a total citation of 8000+ and an H-index of 45.

Dr. Yuxin Peng received his Bachelor and Master degrees from Chongqing University, China in 2007 and 2010, followed by PhD from the Department of Nanomechanics, Tohoku University, Japan in 2013. He acted as a Research Fellow in the Department of Biomedical Engineering, National University of Singapore, Singapore from 2014 to 2016. He is currently a ZJU 100 Young Professor of the Department of Sports Science, Zhejiang University, China.  His interests include flexible and wearable sensors, soft robots, biomechanics, and human activity recognition. He has participated in a number of key research projects supported by a variety funding bodies, including National Natural Science Foundation of China, National Social Science Foundation of China, National Key Research and Development Project, and Key Research and Development Programme of Zhejiang. He has authored over 60 academic papers published on peer-reviewed international journals in the fields of sensors, robotics, actuators, and human activity recognition, including Science Advances, IEEE Sensors Journal, Journal of Manufacturing Systems, Sensors and Actuators: A. Physical, and Nanotechnology. Currently, he has applied 29 patents, of which 23 have been authorized.
