Handbook of Modern Sensors: Physics, Designs, and Applications

Buy
Seven years have passed since the publication of the previous edition of this book. During that time, sensor technologies have made a remarkable leap forward. The sensitivity of the sensors became higher, the dimensions became smaller, the selectivity became better, and the prices became lower. What have not changed are the fundamental principles of the sensor design. They are still governed by the laws of Nature. Arguably one of the greatest geniuses who ever lived, Leonardo Da Vinci, had his own peculiar way of praying. He was saying, “Oh Lord, thanks for Thou do not violate your own laws.” It is comforting indeed that the laws of Nature do not change as time goes by; it is just our appreciation of them that is being refined. Thus, this new edition examines the same good old laws of Nature that are employed in the designs of various sensors. This has not changed much since the previous edition. Yet, the sections that describe the practical designs are revised substantially. Recent ideas and developments have been added, and less important and nonessential designs were dropped. Probably the most dramatic recent progress in the sensor technologies relates to wide use of MEMS and MEOMS (micro-electro-mechanical systems and micro-electro-opto-mechanical systems). These are examined in this new edition with greater detail.

This book is about devices commonly called sensors. The invention of a microprocessor has brought highly sophisticated instruments into our everyday lives. Numerous computerized appliances, of which microprocessors are integral parts, wash clothes and prepare coffee, play music, guard homes, and control room temperature. Microprocessors are digital devices that manipulate binary codes generally represented by electric signals. Yet, we live in an analog world where these devices function among objects that are mostly not digital. Moreover, this world is generally not electrical (apart from the atomic level). Digital systems, however complex and intelligent they might be, must receive information from the outside world. Sensors are interface devices between various physical values and electronic circuits who “understand” only a language of moving electrical charges. In other words, sensors are the eyes, ears, and noses of silicon chips. Sensors have become part of everyone’s life. In the United States alone, they comprise a $12 billion industry.

Mathematical Tools for Data Mining: Set Theory, Partial Orders, Combinatorics (Advanced Information and Knowledge Processing)
Mathematical Tools for Data Mining: Set Theory, Partial Orders, Combinatorics (Advanced Information and Knowledge Processing)
The maturing of the field of data mining has brought about an increased level of mathematical sophistication. Such disciplines like topology, combinatorics, partially ordered sets and their associated algebraic structures (lattices and Boolean algebras), and metric spaces are increasingly applied in data mining research. This book presents these...

Machine Learning for Multimedia Content Analysis (Multimedia Systems and Applications)
Machine Learning for Multimedia Content Analysis (Multimedia Systems and Applications)
Challenges in complexity and variability of multimedia data have led to revolutions in machine learning techniques. Multimedia data, such as digital images, audio streams and motion video programs, exhibit richer structures than simple, isolated data items. A number of pixels in a digital image collectively conveys certain visual content to...
Probability for Electrical and Computer Engineers
Probability for Electrical and Computer Engineers
About ten years ago we had the idea to begin a course in probability for students of electrical engineering. Prior to that electrical engineering graduate students at the Naval Postgraduate School specializing in communication, control, and signal processing were given a basic course in probability in another department and then began a course in...
Applied Calculus of Variations for Engineers
Applied Calculus of Variations for Engineers

The subject of calculus of variations is to find optimal solutions to engineering problems where the optimum may be a certain quantity, a shape, or a function. Applied Calculus of Variations for Engineers addresses this very important mathematical area applicable to many engineering disciplines. Its unique,...
