The scope of the journal encompasses, but is not restricted to, the following areas:
• Sensing principles and mechanisms
• New materials development (transducers and sensitive/recognition components)
• Fabrication technology
• Actuators
• Optical devices
• Electrochemical devices
• Mass-sensitive devices
• Gas sensors
• Biosensors
• Analytical microsystems
• Environmental, process control and biomedical applications
• Signal processing
• Sensor and sensor-array chemometrics
μTAS – Micro Total Analysis Systems: Microsystems for the generation, handling and analysis of (bio)chemical information
The special section of Sensors & Actuators, B: Chemical on micro TAS is dedicated to contributions concerning miniaturised systems for (bio)chemical synthesis and analysis, also comprising work on Bio-MEMS, Lab-on-a-chip, biochips and microfluidics.
Topics covered by the micro TAS section include:
• Physics and chemistry of microfluidics
• Microfabrication technology for micro TAS
• Analytical chemical aspects
• Detectors, sensors, arrays for micro TAS
• Micro TAS applications
• DNA analysis
• Microinstrumentation
• Microsystems for combinatorial chemistry.
