qElectronic nosesq are instruments which mimic the sense of smell. Consisting of olfactory sensors and a suitable signal processing unit, they are able to detect and distinguish odors precisely and at low cost. This makes them very useful for a remarkable variety of applications in the food and pharmaceutical industry, in environmental control or clinical diagnostics and more. The scope covers biological and technical fundamentals and up-to-date research. Contributions by renowned international scientists as well as application-oriented news from successful qe-noseq manufacturers give a well-rounded account of the topic, and this coverage from RaD to applications makes this book a must-have read for e-nose researchers, designers and users alike.
