Volume 5: Electrochemical and Optical Sensors in this outstanding series edited by Joe Watson, provides you with comprehensive coverage on two major groups of chemical sensors such as electrochemical and optical chemical sensors. In this one volume, you will find detailed description of electrochemical gas sensors, zirconia-based solid electrolyte gas sensors, electrochemical sensors for liquid environment, and ion selective FET-based sensors. Different optical and fiber-optic sensors are also included in this volume.

Chemical sensors are integral to the automation of myriad industrial processes, as well as everyday monitoring of such activities as public safety, engine performance, medical therapeutics, and many more. This massive reference work will cover all major categories of chemical sensor materials and devices, and their general functional usage...from monitoring and analyzing gases, to analyzing liquids and compounds of all kinds. This is THE reference work on sensors used for chemical detection and analysis. In this fifth volume will be found comprehensive coverage on electrochemical gas sensors, zirconia-based solid electrolyte based gas sensors, electrochemical sensors for liquid environments, micro-fluidic chip platforms, optical- and fiber-optical sensor technologies, and new developments in chemoluminescence chemical sensors.
