Sensor Technology

Chapter

Abstract

Sensors are measurement transducers. They transform parameters of interest into electrical signals that can be displayed, stored, or further processed for applications in science and technology. Based on a view on the physics of sensors, the characteristics of sensors are described, including the sensing measuring chain, signal processing, and data acquisition.
