Overview

This book deals with the development of what are known as the electronic nose and the electronic tongue, that is to say odor and taste sensors. Of all sensor technologies, these have been widely considered as the most difficult to realize." "These sensors have been developed on the basis of mechanisms found in biological systems, such as parallel processing of multi-dimensional information or by the use of bio-materials." "This book will be of value to researchers from a wide range of fields, including electrical engineering, food science, electronics, mechanical engineering, medical science, biochemistry, biophysics and biotechnology.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Biomimetic Sensor Technology will be of interest to researchers in food science, biochemistry, biophysics, medical science, biotechnology and electronic and mechanical engineering." Sensor Review

"This book is recommended to researchers in the field of electronic noses and tongues. Part of it could also be useful for introducing postgraduate students to the biomimetic approach in sensor technology." Measurement Science and Technology

"the book is an excellent way of getting up to speed in biominetic sensors and a useful indication of what will soon or may already be, possible applications of them." IEE Reviews July 2001

"In general one can recommend this book to all people, in particular non-specialists, who are interested in the feild of food testing by means of chemical sensor tevhnology. In particular, scientists who want to enter the field of taste sensing should read this book." Sensor and Material 2001

"This is a useful book on the subjects the material is accessible, the depth of prior knowledge of chemistry/biology of comparable discrimination required is small and the style and presentation are pleasing. A good way to "get into" the subject of biomimetics." Measurement + Control June 2001
