About this book

This volume, which addresses various basic sensor principles, covers micro gravimetric sensors, semiconducting and nano tube sensors, calorimetric sensors and optical sensors. Furthermore, the authors discuss recent developments in the related sensitive layers including new properties of nano structured metal oxide layers. They provide in-depth insights into the unique chemistry and signal generation of copper oxide in percolating sensors and present a variety of applications of functional polymers made possible by proper imprinting.

Highlights of the subjects covered include:

•          requirements for high-temperature sensors

•          carbon nano tube sensors

•          new sensing model for nanostructured In2O3

•          bio mimetic approach for semiconductor sensor-based systems

•          optical readout for inorganic and organic semiconductor sensors

•          concept of virtual multisensors to improve specificity and selectivity

•          calorimetric sensors for hydrogen peroxide detection

•          percolation effect-based sensors to implement dosimeters

•          imprinted polymer layers for bulk and surface acoustic wave sensors

Reviews

“This timely book contains a good collection of hot topic aspects in gas sensing. For every topic treated, the reader will find the essential fundamentals, new developments, challenges to be addressed, representative applications, and an updated list of relevant literature. Either newcomer to the field or with substantial experience, every reader will find this book useful and inspiring.” (Eduard Llobet, Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry, Vol. 409, 2017)

“The structure of the book is very good, with clear headings in every chapter, excellent referencing and a very useful index. This book can be used as both chapters to be read completely and as a reference book.” (John Saffell, Sensor100, October, 2014)
