Encyclopedia of Sensors cover

Book Description


Encyclopedia of Sensors is the first encyclopedia ever published in the field of sensors. The multivolume encyclopedia will provide a complete coverage of most recent advances and emerging new sensor technologies in the fields of science, engineering and medicine. Although there are many books focused on sensors however no encyclopedic reference work has been published as of today. This encyclopedia will cover all aspects of sensor science and technology dealing with all types of sensor materials, their synthesis and spectroscopic characterization, sensor designs, fabrication and manufacturing techniques, sensor probes, features, physical, chemical and biosensors, their applications in electronics, photonic and optoelectronic industries, medicine, surface sensing, food industry, environmental engineering and nanotechnology. It is written for a wide range of audience from non-scientists to active scientists and engineers, professionals and experts working in the field of sensors.



Encyclopedia Scope


Innovative sensing concepts, Cell and tissue-based sensors, Chemical, biological and physical sensors, Sensor networks and systems, Sensor system integration, Advanced sensing materials, Sensor architectures, Self-cleaning sensors, One-shot disposable sensors, Biotoxin sensors, Data fusion of sensor arrays, Sensor fabrication, packaging, testing and reliability, Sensor instrumentation, Electronic interfaces and data processing, Sensor signal processing electronics, Sensor applications and uses, Optical, acoustic, mechanical, thermal, electromagnetic, electrochemical and radiation sensors, Environmental sensors, Fiber optic sensors, Sonar sensors, Flow sensors, Analytical systems, lab-on-a-chip, Sensor neural networks, Sensor telemetry, Measurement compensation and calibration, Electronic-nose sensors, Nanosensors, Computational and theoretical aspects of sensors, Fabrication techniques, Characterization, Spectroscopy, and much more ...
