About this book

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
  • Quantum Dots
  • Nanostructured magnetic sensors
  • Encapsulated probes
  • 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.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"This book can be recommended to anyone who wants to have an overall picture of the symbiosis between nanoscience and sensing: students, technical personnel and scientists working in many different fields … . Sensors based on nanostructured materials provides a good insight into the world of sensing with nanostructured materials. It provides a nice overview of fundamental principles, fabrication processes of the sensing devices and applications." (Rosario Pereiro, Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry, Vol. 394 (5), July, 2009)
