Description

The rapidly emerging fields of nanotechnology and nano-fabrication have enabled the creation of new sensors with dramatic improvements in sensitivity and range, along with substantial miniaturization. And, although there are many books on nanotechnology, recent advances in micro and nano-scale sensors and transducers are not adequately represented

Table of Contents

Pressure Sensors. Motion and Acceleration Sensors. Gas and Smoke Sensors. Moisture Sensors. Optoelectronic and Photonic Sensors. Biological, Chemical, and "Lab on a Chip" Sensors. Electric, Magnetic, and RF / Microwave Sensors. Integrated Sensor / Actuator Units and Special Purpose Sensors.
