About this product
- DescriptionThe rapidly emerging fields of natechlogy and na-fabrication have enabled the creation of new sensors with dramatic improvements in sensitivity and range, along with substantial miniaturization. And, although there are many books on natechlogy, recent advances in micro and na-scale sensors and transducers are t adequately represented in most books. This book fills that gap. Micro- and Na-Scale Sensors and Transducers provides a summary of the state of the art in sensor and transducer techlogy. Teaching you how to make more informed selections of sensors or transducers for particular applications, it describes the differences between new sensor and transducer techlogies based on natechlogy and na-fabrication and the older or classical sensor techlogies. The book presents the new structures of pressure sensors being used in such applications as mechanical pressure sensing, gas pressure sensing, and atmospheric pressure sensing. It illustrates the vel structures and characteristics of new motion and acceleration sensors. Describing highly sensitive miniature gas and smoke sensors based on na-structured electrodes, the book presents vel techniques for detecting atmospheric moisture and moisture inside small electronic components. It also covers applications of optoelectronic and photonic sensors. The book examines multi-purpose biological and chemical analysis devices where each device is fully contained in one integrated circuit (Lab on a Chip) as well as other advanced chemical and biological sensors. It describes electric, magnetic, and RF / microwave sensors and their applications and also considers integrated sensor / actuator units and special-purpose sensors. Each chapter in the book includes a set of quizzes / short questions, along with answers.
