Materials and Applications for Sensors and Transducers II
The special collection of peer reviewed papers tends to gather the current know-how from research in the field of material science, especially those materials used for sensors, actuators, and all kind of devices used for transducing physical signals. The aim was to bring together scientists, engineers and product designers in order to fulfill the gap between research and development.

Review from Ringgold Inc., ProtoView: Only one year after the first MAST conference, held in the Greek island cityof Kos, the second conference drew about 240 oral and poster papers andabout 150 non-presenting participants. Nearly half of the papers arepresented here.Among them are discussions of characteristics of laser-generatedvisco-elastic Rayleigh waves, selective optical gas sensors using butterflywing scales nanostructures, fabricating a monolithic integrated bimaterialresonant uncooled infrared sensor, different kinds of carbon-based materialfor resistive gas sensing, direct surface relief formation in polymer films,using a microwave sensor as an online indicator of neurological impairmentduring surgical procedures, improving amorphous selenium photodetectorperformance using an organic semiconductor, and evaluating the polarizationstate of integrated piezoelectric sensors and actuators using the thermalwave method.
