Series in Sensors


About the Series

This leading and well-established international series contains titles on all aspects and relating to all disciplines of the science and technology of sensors, transducers, and sensing systems for monitoring and measuring a wide range of quantities in all application areas, including industrial, scientific, environmental, agricultural, medical, and beyond. Sectors include manufacturing, transport, energy, food, health, and security. The books are written for new graduates and professionals working in industry and specific areas of research. The regular output of newly published titles covers research and a wide range of applications and new technologies. Each book presents the underlying physics and engineering, plus the fabrication technologies, and provides case studies or likely commercial applications. Titles in the series provide an invaluable library for instrument and measurement scientists, engineers, technologists, and others in industry, research institutes, and universities.

We continue to seek authors for this series. The first step toward becoming an author for this series is to submit a proposal form, which can be downloaded from http://www.crcpress.com/resources/authors/publishing. Please submit the proposal form to Francesca McGowan, Editor for Physics books at francesca.mcgowan@tandf.co.uk, or to the Series Editors: Professor Barry E. Jones at barry.jones@brunel.ac.uk and Professor Haiying Huang at huang@uta.edu.
