Book Description

Biological and Medical Sensor Technologies presents contributions from top experts who explore the development and implementation of sensors for various applications used in medicine and biology. Edited by a pioneer in the area of advanced semiconductor materials, the book is divided into two sections.

The first part covers sensors for biological applications. Topics include:

  • Advanced sensing and communication in the biological world
  • DNA-derivative architectures for long-wavelength bio-sensing
  • Label-free silicon photonics
  • Quartz crystal microbalance-based biosensors
  • Lab-on-chip technologies for cell-sensing applications
  • Enzyme biosensors
  • Future directions for breath sensors
  • Solid-state gas sensors for clinical diagnosis

The second part of the book deals with sensors for medical applications. This section addresses:

  • Bio-sensing and human behavior measurements
  • Sweat rate wearable sensors
  • Various aspects of medical imaging
  • The future of medical imaging
  • Spatial and spectral resolution aspects of semiconductor detectors in medical imaging
  • CMOS SSPM detectors
  • CdTe detectors and their applications to gamma-ray imaging
  • Positron emission tomography (PET)

Composed of contributions from some of the world’s foremost experts in their respective fields, this book covers a wide range of subjects. It explores everything from sensors and communication systems found in nature to the latest advances in manmade sensors. The end result is a useful collection of stimulating insights into the many exciting applications of sensor technologies in everyday life.
