Abstract [en]

Due to remarkable developments in the field of sensors along with miniaturization, sophisticated microsensors are part of many aspects of 21st century medicine and health care. Turning sensory inputs of all kinds into defined electrical signals that can be  interpreted and acted upon by both stationary and portable medicne  equipment as well as implants, sensors find many applications monitoring blood pressure, heart rates, glucose levels and many other parameters by which human health can be evaluated.         

They also serve as key components in modern imaging equipment as well as operating equipment for minimally invasive surgery,catheters and other applications.         

Taken as a whole, Sensors Applications covers all major fields  of application for commercial sensors, as well as their  manufacturing techniques and major types. Strong emphasis is placedon microsensors, microsystems and integrated electronic sensor  packages rather than bulk equipment. Each of the individual volumes is tailored to the needs and queries of readers from the relevant branches of industry and research.
