From the Editors-

The development of sensors and detectors at macroscopic or nanometric scales driven force  the detection accuracy on a reduced scale in solid, liquid or gas phases, contact or non-contact configurations or multiple sensing using the sensitive elements, mean a stimulating research topic of sensing materials and technology. The emphasis on detection techniques requires the use of new materials and methods. The purpose appealing perspective is given by spin crossover organic, inorganic and composite materials that could be unique for sensors fabrication.  The influence of length, composition and conformation structure of materials on their properties and the possibilities to adjust sensing properties by doping or adding the side-groups indicate as the starting point of multifarious sensing. The role of inter-molecular interactions, polymer and ordered phases formation, as well as the behaviour under pressure, magnetic and electric fields are also important facts for processing of ultra-sensing materials. In this book, we have highlighted the key features which aid to design new sensor and detection materials with special focus on 1) principals and prospective, 2) new materials and methods and 3) advanced structures and properties for various sensor devices.

Science and technology at nanometer scale address a wide variety of disciplines and applications. The chapter on advances in sensors’ nanotechnology underlines the significance of nanotechnology in sensor field and also describes the usage various nanomaterials for the construction of sensoing devices for medical diagnostics. In conjuction with this chapter, construction of nanostructures: a basic concept synthesis and their applications covers bottom up synthesis of nanostructures having different morphology including shape, size and dimensions  using various precursors and techniques. A general literature overview and future directions are given for a model ZnO chemistry. The chapter on the role of the shapes in the design of new nanoparticles discusses the influence of geometry of the nanoobjects on biological processes. A particular emphasis is given on improvement in controlled release of drugs using polymeric and nonpolymeric nanomaterials. The chapter entitled  molecularly imprinted polymer as advanced material for the development of enantioselective sensing devices describes a range of molecularly imprinted polymers for chiral recognition of biological molecules. The devices based on enantiodifferentiation including electrochemical, optical, and piezoelectric sensing are examplified.

The chapter entitled role of microwave sintering in the preparation of ferrites for high frequency applications highlights preparation of nanocrystalline magnetic oxide materials using a microwave sintering method. The application of this method is examplified for a wide range of mixed ferrite nanoparticles at high frequency applications. In the chapter of mesoporous silica: making “sense” of sensors, the significance of porous materials is overviewed together with the preparation and surface functionalization methods of oxidic nanomaterials. A particular emphasis is given on silica having interconnected internal prosity at meso scale for relative humidity sensing applications. The prediction and optimization of heavy clay products quality illıstrates various process parameters to design and control brick production such as chemical composition, firing temperature, weight loss, and water absorption. Artifical neural network is used for handling complex systems for nonlinear and interaction between decisive variables. In the chapter of ionic liquids, a general introduction of ionic liquids is given with historical background. Thephysical and chemical features of this family of molecules are discussed in environmental and economical perspectives. The chapter entitled dendrimers and hyperbranched polymers highlights unique features of dentritic macromolecules in general. Their applications associated with molecular structures are overviewed. In the chapter of theoretical investigation of superconducting state parameters of bulk metallic glasses, superconductivity in bulk metallic glasses is reported us ing EMC model potential and H-local field correction functions. Wurtzide (III-IV) nitrides are direct and wide band gap semicoductors with a wide range of band gap and as well as very high environmental and thermal stability.

Macroscopic polarization and thermal coıonductivity of binary wurtzite nitrides describes the effect of spontaneous and piezoelectric polarization on thermal conductivity of binary wurtzide nitrides. The chapter on towards improving the functionalities of porous TiO2-Au/Ag based materials describes titanium dioxide aerogels decorated with Au/Ag nanoparticles. The sensing of water chemical pollutants by surface-enhanced Raman scattering of porous nanocomposite materials is discussed. The application of ferroelectric glass ceramics in sensor field is wide and of considerable technological importance due to their rich crystal chemistry and structure-property relationships. The chapter entitled ferroelectric glass-ceramics contains literature review on the research and development of new materials for various applications including doping of existing materials as well as processing for improved properties. In the chapter entitled, NASICON: synthesis, structure and electrical characterization, various synthesis methods and characterization of Na-super-ion-conductor that have potential for applications of rechargable lithium ion batteries and gas sensors are reported. Problems of synthesis, applications, and prospects are also discussed. The chapter on experiments techniques and theoretical background to study materials covers theoretical background of basic tools in experimental characterization of materials particularly at nanometer scale including electron scattering, diffraction, microscopy, and spectroscopy.

The book is written for a large readership including university students and researchers from diverse backgrounds such as sensor & detection science, chemistry, materials science, physics, pharmacy, medical science, and biomedical engineering. It can be used not only as a textbook for both undergraduate and graduate students, but also as a review and reference book for researchers in the materials science, device engineering, medical, pharmacy, biotechnology and nanotechnology. We hope that chapters of this book will give a valuable insight in the major area of Advanced sensors and detectors materials specially cutting-edge technology on new materials and methods; advanced structures and properties for various sensor and detection devices to the readers. The interdisciplinary nature of the topics in this book will help young researchers and senior academicians. The main credit of this book goes to the contributors who have comprehensively written their updated chapters in the field advanced sensors and detectors materials.
