Overview

Written by an interdisciplinary group of experts from both industry and academia, Acoustic Wave Sensors provides an in-depth look at the current state of acoustic wave devices and the scape of their use in chemical, biochemical, and physical measurements, as well as in engineering applications. Because of the inherent interdisciplinary applications of these devices, this book will be useful for the chemist and biochemist interested in the use and development of these sensors; the electrical engineer involved in their design and improvement; the chemical engineer and the biotechnologist interested in using them for process monitoring and control; and the sensor community at large.

Audience: The audience includes: applied physicists (especially in acoustics), specialists in instrumentation (electronics), engineers (electrical, chemical engineering, and biotechnology), chemists and materials scientists in industry and academia. The book also has potential as a text in upper level undergraduate and graduate courses.
