The fields of interest of the IEEE Sensors Journal are the theory, design , fabrication, manufacturing and applications of devices for sensing and transducing physical, chemical and biological phenomena, with emphasis on the electronics and physics aspect of sensors and integrated sensors-actuators. IEEE Sensors Journal deals with the following:

  • Sensor Phenomenology, Modelling, and Evaluation
  • Sensor Materials, Processing, and Fabrication
  • Chemical and Gas Sensors
  • Microfluidics and Biosensors
  • Optical Sensors
  • Physical Sensors: Temperature, Mechanical, Magnetic, and others
  • Acoustic and Ultrasonic Sensors
  • Sensor Packaging
  • Sensor Networks
  • Sensor Applications
  • Sensor Systems: Signals, Processing, and Interfaces
  • Actuators and Sensor Power Systems
  • Sensor Signal Processing for high precision and stability (amplification, filtering, linearization, modulation/demodulation) and under harsh conditions (EMC, radiation, humidity, temperature); energy consumption/harvesting
  • Sensor Data Processing (soft computing with sensor data, e.g., pattern recognition, machine learning, evolutionary computation; sensor data fusion, processing of wave e.g., electromagnetic and acoustic; and non-wave, e.g., chemical, gravity, particle, thermal, radiative and non-radiative sensor data, detection, estimation and classification based on sensor data)
  • Sensors in Industrial Practice
