Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Transducers are devices which convert one form of energy or physical attribute into another for purposes such as measurement or information transfer. Basically, there are three kinds of transducers. The sensor is used to detect a parameter in one form of energy and report it in another form. The actuator is used to transform energy, generally from electrical into nonelectrical energy or vice versa. The third kind of transducer has both functions, and can switch between acting as an actuator and acting as a sensor. This special issue of SENSORS will report on the recent advances made in all kinds and types of transducers such as the electromagnetic transducers, electrochemical transducers, electromechanical transducers, electroacoustic transducers, photoelectric transducers, electrostatic transducers, thermoelectric transducers, radioacoustic transducers, fiber-optic transducers and biological transducers.
