The swiftly rising fields of nanotechnology and nano-fabrication have enabled the construction of latest sensors with dramatic advancements in sensitivity and diversity, besides colossal miniaturization. And, even though there are lots of books on nanotechnology, contemporary advances in micro and nano-scale sensors and transducers usually are not thoroughly represented in so much books. This e-book fills that gap.
Micro- and Nano-Scale Sensors and Transducers offers a precis of the country of the art in sensor and transducer know-how. educating you ways to make extra proficient choices of sensors or transducers for specific functions, it describes the diversities among new sensor and transducer applied sciences according to nanotechnology and nano-fabrication and the older or "classical" sensor technologies.
The publication offers the recent buildings of strain sensors getting used in such purposes as mechanical strain sensing, gasoline strain sensing, and atmospheric strain sensing. It illustrates the radical constructions and features of latest movement and acceleration sensors.
Describing hugely delicate miniature gasoline and smoke sensors in accordance with nano-structured electrodes, the e-book provides novel concepts for detecting atmospheric moisture and moisture within small digital elements. It additionally covers functions of optoelectronic and photonic sensors.
The e-book examines multi-purpose organic and chemical research units the place each one gadget is totally contained in a single built-in circuit (Lab on a Chip) in addition to different complicated chemical and organic sensors. It describes electrical, magnetic, and RF / microwave sensors and their purposes and likewise considers built-in sensor / actuator devices and special-purpose sensors.
Each bankruptcy within the e-book contains a set of quizzes / brief questions, besides answers.
