Complete discussion of sensors based on carbon nanotubes
Coverage of Nanowires, Nanobelts, and Novel Nanostructures and sensing applications such as gas, electronic noses, and chemical warfare agents
Discusses Nanocoatings on optical fibers including sensing applications such as humidity, gas, volatile organic compounds and biological recognition
Discusses the relatively new encapsulated probes for sensing and applications
Complete coverage of Biosensors by means of nanostructured materials and types of nanostructured biosensors
Sensors Based on Nanostructured Materials presents the many different techniques and methods of fabricating materials on the nanometer scale and specifically, the utilization of these resources with regard to sensors. The techniques which are described here are studied from an application-oriented perspective, providing the reader with a broader view of the types of nanostructured sensors available. The material covered includes:
Sensors based on carbon nanotubes and fullerenes
Non-carbon nanotubes arrays
Nanowires, nanocombs, nanobelts, nanorods, nanoswords and nanosquids
Metal oxides and semiconductors: nanotemplates, nanowires and nanocrystals
Nanostructured magnetic sensors
Optical fiber sensors based on nanostructured coatings
Nanostructured sensors on flexible substrates
Some of the sensing applications described in the 10 chapters of this book are: temperature, pressure, strain, radiation, flow, magnetic fields, gases, volatile organic compounds, ions, chemicals, biosensors, immunoassays, DNA detection, biological recognition, glucose, enzymatic detection, cell detection, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and others.
Sensors Based on Nanostructures Materials is suitable for academic and industrial research scientists as well as engineers.
