Nanotechnology-Enabled Sensors

Nanotechnology provides us with tools to create functional materials, devices, and systems by controlling materials at the atomic and molecular scales, and at the same time make use of novel properties and phenomena. Considering that most chemical and biological sensors, as well as many physical sensors, depend on interactions occurring within the nano scale range, the impact that nanotechnology will have on the sensor world is significant.

Sensor Technology Handbook

Without sensors most electronic applications would not exist?they perform a vital function, namely providing an interface to the real world. The importance of sensors, however, contrasts with the limited information available on them. Today's smart sensors, wireless sensors, and microtechnologies are revolutionizing sensor design and applications. This volume is an up-to-date and comprehensive sensor reference guide to be used by engineers and scientists in industry, research, and academia to help with their sensor selection and system design.

Sensors and Microsystems: AISEM 2009 Proceedings

Sensors and Microsystems contains a selection of papers presented at the 14th Italian conference on sensors and microsystems. It provides a unique perspective on the research and development of sensors, microsystems and related technologies in Italy. The scientific values of the papers also offers an invaluable source to analyists intending to survey the Italian situation about sensors and microsystems. In an interdisciplinary approach many aspects of the disciplines are covered, ranging from materials science, chemistry, applied physics, electronic engineering and biotechnologies.

Smart Sensors and MEMS

The book Smart Sensors and MEMS provides an unique collection of contributions on latest achievements in sensors area and technologies that have made by eleven internationally recognized leading experts from Czech Republic, Germany, Italy, Israel, Portugal, Switzerland, Ukraine and USA during the NATO Advanced Study Institute (ASI) in Povoa de Varzim, Portugal, from 8 to 19 September 2003.

Handbook of Modern Sensors

This book is about devices commonly called sensors. Digital systems, however complex and intelligent they might be, must receive information from the outside world that is generally analog and not electrical. Sensors are interface devices between various physical values and the electronic circuits who "understand" only a language of moving electrical charges. In other words, sensors are the eyes, ears, and noses of silicon chips.
