Materials and Applications for Sensors and Transducers
ICMAST-2011 is an international interdisciplinary conference which covers research and development in the field of materials science; especially those materials which are used for sensors, actuators, and all kinds of transducers. ICMAST-2011 aims to bring together scientists, engineers and product designers in order to fill the gap between research and development.
Volume is indexed by Thomson Reuters CPCI-S (WoS).
The topics covered by ICMAST-2011 include: new materials development, fabrication technology, sensing principles and mechanisms, actuators, optical devices, electrochemical devices, mass-sensitive devices, gas sensors, biosensors, analytical microsystems, environmental aspects, process control, biomedical applications, signal processing, sensor and sensor-array chemometrics and - as a satellite event to the conference - the economics and management of high-tech laboratories and products.
Review from Ringgold Inc., ProtoView: The series was initiated to provide a deep focus in hybrid systems and material structures used for sensing and energy transducing principles; to seek new, better, and less expensive ways of translating an interesting sensing idea into a product; and to provide non-parallel sessions so everyone could participate in all the discussions. The 87 papers selected for publication consider such topics as nanostructures of water molecules in iteratively filtered water, polymer coated microfabricated interdigitated electrode arrays for gas sensing applications, pricing strategy dynamic simulation modeling within the high-technology sector, correlating microstructure to macroscopic magnetic measurements on electrical steels, and the fast diagnosis of volatile organic compounds with a temperature-modulated chemoresistor.
