    2D Materials-Based Sensors: Technology and Applications is a comprehensive book covering the latest innovations on sensors using the unique properties of 2D materials. This specialized text:  

    • Describes 2D materials process technology, and integration of these materials into sensor fabrication
    • Provides an in-depth coverage of the underlying physics, operation and performance metrics of 2D materials-based sensors
    • Highlights state-of-the-art developments in 2D material sensors vis-à-vis challenges faced in their fabrication
    • Presents glimpses of emerging 2D materials-based sensor technologies that will shape the future
    • Expedites understanding and learning through plain, lucid explanations and clear, insightful diagrams

    Commencing from an introductory survey of the 2D materials family, the book describes their impressive properties, and their top-down and bottom-up synthesis techniques. The succeeding chapters present detailed descriptions of 2D-materials-based mechanical sensors, photodetectors, magnetic sensors together with quantum sensors, heavy-metal ion sensors, gas sensors and biological sensors. The book concludes with research challenges, emerging trends and limitations providing a balanced perspective of this fast-progressing field.

    This book is a concise guide for students, scientists and technologists engaged in sensor research and development.
