"The Development of faster, more accurate, more sensitive sensors continues, with scientists creating and refining new ways for translating physical values into electronic information. This authoritative handbook takes readers to the cutting edge of sensor technology, providing an expert assessment of current research at the crossroads where the digital, analog, and physical worlds meet." "Written by one of the field's leading specialists, Handbook of Modern Sensors is the only book of its kind: a quick-access guide to the basic principles, design specifications, and uses of a number of important contemporary sensors and detectors. No other volume offers such a clearly written presentation of theoretical and practical information in such a streamlined format." "Handbook of Modern Sensors begins with the basic physical principles that form the foundations of sensor design, then explores the interfaces between sensors and peripheral processing devices. This paves the way for the book's survey of current sensors - coverage organized by the type of variable being measured (from acceleration to vibration). While ranging across a wide variety of devices, the book emphasizes those that are less well known, whose technology is on the rise, and whose existence is making previously inaccessible measurements possible. Thoroughly revised and updated throughout, the Second Edition features new sections on acoustic waves temperature and on temperature and chemical sensors, plus a new chapter on manufacturing methods and materials." "Handbook of Modern Sensors, with its state-of-the-art perspective, is a valuable source of information for physicists and engineering professionals. Yet its easy-going writing style, clear descriptions, and focus on the fundamentals make the book supremely accessible to students as well."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Since publication of the previous, the 3rd edition of this book, the sensor tech- logies have made a remarkable leap ahead. The sensitivity of the sensors became higher, the dimensions – smaller, the selectivity – better, and the prices – lower. What have not changed, are the fundamental principles of the sensor design. They still are governed by the laws of Nature. Arguably one of the greatest geniuses ever lived, Leonardo Da Vinci had his own peculiar way of praying. It went like this, “Oh Lord, thanks for Thou don’t violate Thy own laws. ” It is comforting indeed that the laws of Nature do not change with time, it is just that our appreciation of them becomes re?ned. Thus, this new edition examines the same good old laws of Nature that form the foundation for designs of various sensors. This has not changed much since the previous editions. Yet, the sections that describe practical designs are revised substantially. Recent ideas and developments have been added, while obsolete and less important designs were dropped. This book is about devices commonly called sensors. The invention of a microprocessor has brought highly sophisticated instruments into our everyday life. Numerous computerized appliances, of which microprocessors are integral parts, wash clothes and prepare coffee, play music, guard homes, and control room temperature. Sensors are essential components in any device that uses a digital signal processor.

Protective Textiles from Natural Resources provides systematic coverage of the fundamentals, production methods, processing techniques, characterization techniques, properties and applications of natural textile products for protective purposes. The subject of this book is an important kind of technical textile designed to protect the wearer from injuries, illness and death. They offer enhanced protection against phenomena including heat, cold, flame, chemical, biological, nuclear agents, radiation, disaster and even ballistics. As no single type of clothing can be adequate for all kinds of protection, extensive research is carried out to develop protective clothing for specialized civilian and military applications. The latest research on the use of natural fibres in PPE is also covered, which could make a significant contribution to the fight against the spread of COVID-19. This comprehensive guide explores a wide variety of themes from material processing and design to finished products, through protection against specific hazards to specific applications, including all significant new developments on natural materials for protective textiles. Explains the latest technologies related to fibre extraction from natural sources, chemical treatments, weave constructions, fabric finishes and coatings. Includes the latest research on natural fibers in personal protective equipment (PPE) to protect wearers from bacterial and viral contamination. Explains the state of the art in testing methods and standards for protective clothing.
