Presents a comprehensive and interdisciplinary review of the majorcutting-edge technology research areas—especially those onnew materials and methods as well as advanced structures andproperties—for various sensor and detection devices The development of sensors and detectors at macroscopic ornanometric scale is the driving force stimulating research insensing materials and technology for accurate detection in solid,liquid, or gas phases; contact or non-contact configurations; ormultiple sensing. The emphasis on reduced-scale detectiontechniques requires the use of new materials and methods. Thesetechniques offer appealing perspectives given by spin crossoverorganic, inorganic, and composite materials that could be uniquefor sensor fabrication. The influence of the length, composition,and conformation structure of materials on their properties, andthe possibility of adjusting sensing properties by doping or addingthe side-groups, are indicative of the starting point ofmultifarious sensing. The role of intermolecular interactions,polymer and ordered phase formation, as well as behavior underpressure and magnetic and electric fields are also important factsfor processing ultra-sensing materials. The 15 chapters written by senior researchers in AdvancedSensor and Detection Materials cover all these subjects and keyfeatures under three foci: 1) principals and perspectives, 2) newmaterials and methods, and 3) advanced structures and propertiesfor various sensor devices.
