Polymer films in sensor applications: a review of present uses and future possibilities

Gábor Harsányi

Polymeric materials have gained a wide theoretical interest and practical application in sensor technology. They can be used for very different purposes and may offer…

Gas sensors for improved air quality in transportation

Peter McGeehin

There is increasing concern about the quality of the air breathed by passengers in the cabins of various different forms of transport. In the case of motor vehicles, the…

Optical fibre strain sensing for practical structural load monitoring

L. Everall, A. Gallon, D. Roberts

This paper describes state‐of‐the‐art optical technology, employing Bragg gratings, which has been used to develop an Optical Fibre Strain Sensing System. This system is…

Signature analysis system: new technology to enhance quality in manufacturing

Steve McMahon

The demands for ever improving quality coupled with requests for constant cost reductions have never been as great as they are today. Technology has a major role to play…

Monomolecular Langmuir‐Blodgett films – tomorrow’s sensors?

Gareth Monkman

Describes the fabrication of Langmuir‐Blodgett films and their various applications as pyrometers, capacitive sensors, fluorescence and liquid crystal displays.

Sensing and measurement were strongest features at Interkama

Jack Hollingum

Interkama, the international fair for industrial communication, automation and measurement, is undergoing major structural changes, but new developments in sensing and…

Screen printable polymer piezoelectrics

Thomas Papakostas, Neil White

The use of polymer thick‐film technology for the implementation of piezoelectric sensors opens up the way towards the low‐cost production of piezoelectric sensing devices…

Acoustic gas sensor with ppm resolution

B. Hök, A. Blückert, J. Löfving
