Sensors and Sensory Systems for an Electronic Nose reviews the current state of progress in the development of an electronic instrument capable of olfaction. The instrument -- the so-called electronic nose -- has enormous potential for application in such areas as product flavor control and environmental monitoring. The book discusses the essential elements of an electronic nose, such as chemical sensors, signal processing, and pattern recoginiton techniques. It is also one of the first contributions to the new and exciting field of machine olfaction.Olfactory receptor neurones are astonishingly similar in all species from snails to man. The cell ... The cilia issuing from the top of the dendrite have a diameter of about 0.15 to 0.2 pm, their length varies from 30 to 80 um. ... Introduction All animals from protozoa to man are endowed with the capability of detecting and reacting to chemical stimuli in their enviroment, and in many cases this capability is vital.
