Signal processing has become an integral part of the modern analytical measurement systems and plays a critical role in assuring the quality of measurements. In analytical chemistry, it is used in qualitative and quantitative analyses, to study the physical and chemical properties of compounds and mixtures of various materials. The purpose of signal processing is to make signals useful for specific purposes, to increase the selectivity of information, to make further modeling less complicated, or to provide improved prediction. Different processing methods use different rules and therefore are efficient at extracting information in diverse situations. The processed data space can be one dimensional for typical chemical signals; two dimensional for images; and multidimensional in modern, complex experiments.
The digital revolution impacted signal processing; therefore, new procedures and approaches offer the possibility to resolve more complicated problems. Over the years, the progress in chemical measuring systems has been based on advances in electronics; sensors, and, more recently, multisensor systems, by the application of new materials and better microfabrication capabilities, and modernized acquisition techniques. Hence, an intelligent signal processing algorithm is often the central aspect of an optimized measuring procedure; it may expand applicability, improve efficiency, and maximize the performance of the measuring system.
This Special Issue on “Multisensor Systems and Signal Processing in Analytical
Chemistry” will include but is not limited to the following topics:
- Novel chemical sensors’ and multisensor systems’ development and application;
- Analytical signals sampling and quantization;
- Signal normalization and standardization, baseline correction;
- Detection of the important features of the signals;
- Separation of overlapping useful components;
- Compression of signals and images;
- Influence of the adequate and optimized signal processing for analytical parameters ;
- Chemometric approaches in multivariate signal processing;
- Software for signal processing.
New research and ideas for novel chemical sensors and multisensor systems development and application comprising signal processing details are strongly invited to be a part of this Special Issue.
