"Sensors Based on Nanostructured Materials" presents the many different techniques and methods of fabricating materials on the nanometer scale, and, specifically, the utilization of these resources with regard to sensors. The techniques which are described are studied from an application-oriented perspective, providing the reader with a broader perspective of the types of nanostructured sensors available than other books which concentrate on theoretical situations related to specific fabrication techniques. Rather than focus on possible techniques for future fabrication, this book describes and explores well established techniques for fabricating sensors using nanostructured materials, and serves as a multidisciplinary text which considers the uses in optics, electronics, and biochemistry.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"This book can be recommended to anyone who wants to have an overall picture of the symbiosis between nanoscience and sensing: students, technical personnel and scientists working in many different fields . . Sensors based on nanostructured materials provides a good insight into the world of sensing with nanostructured materials. It provides a nice overview of fundamental principles, fabrication processes of the sensing devices and applications." (Rosario Pereiro, Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry, Vol. 394 (5), July, 2009)
