Sensors and Measurement Systems is an introduction to microsensors for engineering students in the final undergraduate or early graduate level, technicians who want to know more about the systems they are using, and anybody curious enough to know what microsystems and microsensors can do.

The book discusses five families of sensors:
- Thermal sensors
- Force and pressure sensors
- Inertial sensors
- Magnetic field sensors
- Flow sensors

For each sensor, theoretical, technology and application aspects are examined. The sensor function is modelled to understand sensitivity, resolution and noise. We ask ourselves: What do we want to measure? What are possible applications? How are the sensor chips made in the cleanroom? How are they mounted and integrated in a system?

After reading this book, you should be able to:
- Understand important thermal, mechanical, inertial and magnetic sensors
- Work with characterization parameters for sensors
- Choose sensors for a given application and apply them
- Understand micromachining technologies for sensors

Introduction
1. Thermal sensors
2. Sensor technology
3. Force and pressure sensors
4. Inertial sensors
5. Magnetic sensors
6. Flow sensors

Walter Lang, PhD

Walter Lang studied physics at Munich University and received his Diploma in 1982 on Raman spectroscopy of crystals with low symmetry. His Ph.D. in Engineering at Munich Technical University was on flame-induced vibrations. In 1987 he joined the Fraunhofer Institute for Solid State Technology in Munich, where he worked on microsystems technology. In 1995 he became the head of the sensors department at the Institute of Micromachining and Information Technology of the Hahn-Schickard Gesellschaft (HSG-IMIT) in Villingen-Schwenningen, Germany, working on sensors for flow and angular rate, sensor test and modelling. In February 2003 Dr. Lang joined the University of Bremen. He is heading the Institute for microsensors, -actuators and –systems (IMSAS) and he is the speaker of the Microsystems Center Bremen (MCB). His projects cover thermal sensors, sensor networks for logistics and the embedding of sensors in materials.
