From the electronic nose and the intelligent ear to the modern inkjet nozzle, the applications for smart devices incorporating microsensors are having a growing impact. This book reports upon recent developments in the integration of microelectronics with microsensors and microactuators to form a microsystem or MEMS (Micro Electro Mechanical System) device. 


This timely reference text: 


-          Provides a unique and accessible overview of this rapidly expanding field and addresses the technology integration issues that are vital to the successful application of microsensors, MEMS and smart devices 

-          Describes the latest applications in smart devices such as the electronic nose and tongue to ID technology such as smart sensors and smart structures like the smart skin 

-          Covers the latest fabrication techniques and processes such as bulk and surface micromachinery, and polymer processing methods 

-          Describes fabrication materials - functional, structural and intelligent - and includes comprehensive appendices with properties of materials 


Offering a unique overview of this rapidly expanding field, Microsensors, MEMS and Smart Devices enables readers to understand microsystems and to evaluate their possibilities.
