Overview

Biomimetic sensor technology is based on the use of biomaterials and information processing of a type used in biological systems. This book explores biomimetic sensors that can quantify taste--the electronic tongue--and smell, the electronic nose. The development of these sensors contribute to our understanding of the reception mechanisms in gustatory and olfactory systems. The author, a pioneer in the development of this new technology, begins by describing the principles of measurement and multivariate analysis. He details reception mechanisms in biological systems and several types of biosensors, including enzyme-immobilized membranes, SPR, the quartz resonance oscillator and IC technologies. Dedicated to the development of intelligent sensors and systems, this original volume is an essential resource for engineers working in this vital research area.
