Terrorism and military actions pose the ultimate challenge to gas sensing

Robert Bogue

This paper aims to provide a review of the uses of gas sensors to detect explosives' vapours and chemical warfare agents (CWAs).

Developments in organic lasers and their role in sensing

Robert Bogue

This paper aims to provide a technical insight into recent developments in organic lasers and their applications to sensing.

Optimization of TiO2 concentration effect for a chemical humidity sensing mechanism

Souhil Kouda, Zohir Dibi, Fayçal Meddour, Samir Barra, Abdelghani Dendouga

The purpose of this paper is to propose a new approach to optimize the TiO2 concentration on a resistive‐type humidity sensing mechanism (RHSM) based on artificial neural network.

Hydrogen detection in organic gas mixtures based on analyzing the transient response

Behzad Bahraminejad, Shahnor Basri, Maryam Isa, Zarida Hambali

The purpose of this paper is to explore the ability of capillary‐attached gas sensor (CGS) in detecting components of gas mixtures, including a volatile organic gas and…

Embedded wireless strain sensors based on printed RFID tag

Sari Merilampi, Toni Björninen, Leena Ukkonen, Pekka Ruuskanen, Lauri Sydänheimo

The purpose of this paper is to develop a wireless strain sensor for measuring large strains. The sensor is based on passive ultra high‐frequency radio frequency…

Fabrication of a membrane type double cavity vacuum‐sealed micro sensor for absolute pressure based on front‐side lateral etching technology

Pradeep Kumar Rathore, Jamil Akhtar

The purpose of this paper is to describe the fabrication of a miniaturized membrane type double cavity vacuum‐sealed micro sensor for absolute pressure using front‐side…

Effect of chirality and atomic vacancies on dynamics of nanoresonators based on SWCNT

Anand Y. Joshi, Satish C. Sharma, S.P. Harsha

The purpose of this paper is to explore the use of chiral single‐walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) as mass sensors. Analysis of SWCNT with chiralities is performed using an…

A resonant accelerometer based on electrostatic stiffness and its closed‐loop control method

Heng Liu, Wei Su, Fu‐tang Zhang

This paper aims to provide detailed information on the dynamic model and closed‐loop control theory for a resonant accelerometer based on electrostatic stiffness, which is…

Theoretical and experimental studies on concave mirror‐based fiber optic displacement sensor

H.Z. Yang, S.W. Harun, H. Ahmad

The purpose of this paper is to investigate, theoretically and experimentally, a concave mirror‐based fiber optic displacement sensor performance for three‐axes…

Zero drift NDIR gas sensors

Jacob Y. Wong, Mike Schell

Output stability or drift overtime has long been a major performance deficiency for gas sensors irrespective of what technology or methodology is used for their…
