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.

Simply Java: An Introduction to Java Programming (Programming Series)
Simply Java: An Introduction to Java Programming (Programming Series)

Why write yet another introductory Java book? The answer is simple; I was unable to find a suitable textbook for teaching introductory Java programming. This is for three main reasons. First, every Java textbook I looked at, or taught from, was too tedious to read. I could not justify asking my students to read something that I was incapable...

Biologically Inspired Artificial Intelligence for Computer Games
Biologically Inspired Artificial Intelligence for Computer Games
As game developers a few years from now, we may look back at current generation AI with astonishment and possibly with a hint of nostalgia. We will notice the extreme simplicity of the systems and behaviours we created, asking ourselves whether it was in fact by design or more by necessity. More importantly, we will be surprised by the amount of...

Being Alongside: For the Teaching and Learning of Mathematics

How do you establish a classroom culture in which students routinely conjecture and think mathematically? How do you establish a way of working with teachers, using video, in which discussion supports professional development? The present book offers answers to these questions through an in depth (enactivist) study of one exceptional teacher...
