This study presents research and development in the fields of sensors and microsystems. Many aspects of disciplines related to sensors and microsystems are covered, ranging from materials science to complete applications and multifunctional systems. The variety of the topics and the quality of the papers should offer readers an insight into the research status in Italy. The book contains selected contributions from 37 institutions in Italy - both academic institutions and public/private research institutions.
