Overview


Hands-On Introduction to LabVIEW for Scientists and Engineers, Second Edition, provides a "learn-by-doing" approach to acquiring the computer-based skills used in daily experimental work in engineering and the sciences. Ideal as an instructional lab textbook or for self-study by individual researchers, this book is not a manual-like presentation of LabVIEW, but rather leads its readers to mastery of this powerful laboratory tool through the process of carrying out interesting and relevant projects. Readers--who are assumed to have no prior computer programming or LabVIEW background--will begin writing meaningful programs within the first few pages. Hands-On Introduction to LabVIEW is designed for flexible use so that readers can easily choose the desired depth of coverage.

New to the Second Edition

* All chapters fully updated to the latest version of LabVIEW and commonly used low-cost data acquisition devices
* Full-color reference card of LabVIEW programming icons
* "Quick Example" sections at the chapter beginnings give concise introductions to the MathScript Node, Shift Register, and Case Structure
* Coverage of USB control of stand-alone instrumentation
* Solutions to even-numbered back-of-the-chapter problems available on the companion website

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"[This book] is written in a manner that helps the beginning LabVIEW programmer understand how to get started and also has a great presentation of more advanced concepts for experienced users."--David L. Roach, Mott Community College

"There are numerous books about programming in LabVIEW, but none that have such a focused applicability to the college-level science lab as this one. The greatest strength of this book is Essick's pedagogical approach. This is not a book on LabVIEW programming: it's a book on using LabVIEW as a tool to do interesting things that - almost incidentally - provides the reader with practical knowledge of LabVIEW programming. ... if the book's good enough that I'm considering building a class around it, well, that's a good book!"--Eric Ayars, The Physics Teacher Journal

"Essick wrote his book from the point of view of a scientist or engineer that actually wants to accomplish something with the software that is practical. And, in a fairly short period of time. For practical users, Essick nailed it."--John Sohl, Weber State University

Meet the Author

John Essick is a professor at Reed College with research interests in the optoelectronic properties of semiconductors. His work focuses on experimental investigations of optically active electronic energy states (including those due to defects) in the thin-film non-crystalline semiconductor materials used in photovoltaic cells as well as in semiconductor quantum dots. Since 1993, he has taught computer-based experimentation using LabVIEW as part of Reed's junior-level Advanced Laboratory and used LabVIEW to carry out many research projects.
