Chemical Sensors : Fundamentals of Sensing Materials Nanostructured Materials v. 2 Hardback
Sensors are the eyes, ears, and more, of the modern engineered product or system--including the living human organism.
This authoritative reference work, part of Momentum Press's new Sensor Technology series, edited by Joe Watson, will offer a complete review of all sensors and their associated instrumentation systems now commonly used in modern medicine.
Covers major classes of sensors, including Adsorption sensors, Electrochemical Sensors, Metal Oxide Sensors, Schottky-based gas sensors and Photoelectrical Sensors.
It also provides in-depth coverage of materials used for sensors, including semiconductors, solid electrolytes, polymer and bio-based membranes, and ceramics.
This title covers abundant examples of uses and applications from gas detection to composition of water and liquid detection to chemical sensors used in cars, aircraft, food quality and biomedical applications. Chemical sensors are integral to the automation of myriad industrial processes, as well as everyday monitoring of such activities as public safety, engine performance, medical therapeutics, and many more. This massive reference work will cover all major categories of sensor types and their general functional usage...from monitoring and analyzing gases, to analyzing liquids and compounds of all kinds.
This will become THE reference work on sensors used for chemical detection and analysis.
