Chemical Sensors: Comprehensive Sensor Technologies, Vol. 4: Solid State Sensors
The field of solid state chemical sensor design is a research field with an increasing interest due to the demands of reliable, inexpensive and portable systems for environmental monitoring, indoor air quality, food quality control, military and many other applications. Many solid state chemical sensors are now commercially available and researchers are making efforts to develop next-generation solid state sensors, having all the necessary requirements, such as small size, low production costs and low power consumption.
Part of Momentum Press’s new Sensor Technology series, edited by Joe Watson, Volume 4 provides a critical assessment of the new trends in the field of solid state chemical sensor by describing the working principle and various applications. It includes descriptions of solid state sensors such as conductometric or resistive gas sensors, Schottky- , FET-, capacitance-, and pyroelectric- type chemical sensors. Pellistors, mass sensitive and acoustic-wave sensors are the objects for analysis as well. Approaches used for chemical sensors micro-fabrication and integration are discussed, as well as a detailed survey of the latest state of technology and contributions to preparing the ground for future achievements in both solid state sensor research and development of solid state sensor technologies. The reader will find a strong emphasis not only on “what” and “how” but also on “why.”
The book is intended for scientists, engineers, and manufacturers involved in the development, design, and application of solid state chemical sensors. Undergraduate and graduate students can use this book for extending their knowledge in the field of chemical sensors.
