FOREWORD by Professor Rudolph A. Marcus, Nobel Prize Laureate

2005 ca. 8,000 pages, Hardcover
ISBN: 1-58883-056-X

"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.
