  1. Semiconductor X-Ray Detectors

    By B. G. Lowe, R. A. Sareen

    Series: Series in Sensors

    Identifying and measuring the elemental x-rays released when materials are examined with particles (electrons, protons, alpha particles, etc.) or photons (x-rays and gamma rays) is still considered to be the primary analytical technique for routine and non-destructive materials analysis. The...

  10. Structural Sensing, Health Monitoring, and Performance Evaluation

    By D. Huston

    Series: Series in Sensors

    Structural health monitoring (SHM) uses one or more in situ sensing systems placed in or around a structure, providing real-time evaluation of its performance and ultimately preventing structural failure. Although most commonly used in civil engineering, such as in roads, bridges, and dams, SHM is...
