About the book

Humidity sensors play an important role in the assessment of environmental conditions and in industrial processes. The existence of water vapors in an ambient air greatly influences human comfort, wildlife, manufacturing processes, industrial products, agriculture, buildings, and storage. Because of primary concern in a variety of industrial, domestic and commercial applications, the humidity has become the most frequently measured physical parameter. The precise and consistent measurement of humidity in environmental monitoring, civil engineering, building air conditioning, automobile, health caring, food processing, pharmaceutical, medical, agriculture, semiconductor, paper, textile and packaging industries have become progressively more important. Although, many types of humidity sensors have been developed to meet the industrial requirements tremendous research is being carried out in quest of developing more efficient, smart, lightweight, fast response and noise-free humidity sensors.

This book aims to cover most of the topics related to humidity sensors in terms of materials, design, fabrication, and applications. Contributions are welcome to include the importance of humidity, humidity monitoring and control, history of humidity measurement, conventional and modern humidity sensors and sensing mechanisms, new developments in humidity sensors, humidity sensing materials, fabrication technologies and applications of the humidity sensors. It is anticipated that this book will be very attractive for undergraduate and graduate engineering students. Moreover, this book will be equally beneficial for the engineers and scientists working in environmental monitoring, industrial process control and packaging, building design and air-conditioning, agriculture and storage industries.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Mr. Josip Knapic

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copy-editing and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
