"The applications of sensors range from medical diagnostics to industrial manufacturing and to defense and national security applications. When an area spans such a large diversity of research, and where research from many different countries is also involved, a review of these developments becomes especially useful. Because it bridges science and technology the field also provides a desired interaction between researchers and research in technologically advanced and developing countries. The present series of volumes, "The Encyclopedia of Sensors" , the first of its kind, is intended to provide a timely compendium of the entire field. As such it can be expected to play a significant role in worldwide future progress and understanding."
Professor Rudolph A. Marcus, Nobel Prize Laureate in Chemistry

Encyclopedia of Sensors is the first encyclopedia ever published in the field of sensors. The multivolume encyclopedia will provide a complete coverage of most recent advances and emerging new sensor technologies in the fields of science, engineering and medicine. Although there are many books focused on sensors however no encyclopedic reference work has been published as of today. This encyclopedia will cover all aspects of sensor science and technology dealing with all types of sensor materials, their synthesis and spectroscopic characterization, sensor designs, fabrication and manufacturing techniques, sensor probes, features, physical, chemical and biosensors, their applications in electronics, photonic and optoelectronic industries, medicine, surface sensing, food industry, environmental engineering and nanotechnology. It is written for a wide range of audience from non-scientists to active scientists and engineers, professionals and experts working in the field of sensors.

  • World's first and only encyclopedia ever published in the field of SENSORS
  • Comprehensive coverage of all aspects of the sensor science and technology
  • Most up-to-date reference work drawing on the past three decades of pioneering research
  • Over 400 review chapters contributed by the world's leading scientists, engineers
    and medical experts
  • State-of-the-art review chapters of approximately 30 to 350 manuscript pages in length
  • Edited and written by internationally known experts familiar with current sensor technologies
  • Truly international, authors from 46 countries
  • Timely, authoritative and most comprehensive
