Ezzat G. Bakhoum received a B.S. degree from Ain Shams University, Cairo, Egypt, in 1986; M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from Duke University, Durham, NC, USA, in 1989 and 1994, respectively, all in electrical engineering. From 1994 to 1996, he served as a Senior Engineer and Managing Partner at ESD Research, Inc., Research Triangle Park, North Carolina. From 1996 to 2000, he worked as a Senior Engineer at Lockheed Martin/L3 Communications, Inc., Camden, New Jersey. From 2000 to 2005, Dr. Bakhoum served as a Lecturer in the Electrical Engineering Department at the New Jersey Institute of Technology, Newark, New Jersey. Dr. Bakhoum is currently an Associate Professor at the University of West Florida.
"This book provides technical details on some of the most recent sensor types that use micro- to nano-scale fabrication. This is one of the best books I have recently read on sensors. It presents a clear and concise summary of the state of the art of sensor and transducer technology as of 2014. The book describes different sensors based on novel ideas at or near commercial readiness. These sensors are compared with conventional sensor technology to illustrate the advantages of the new designs. ... The direct straightforward listing of cutting-edge sensors, at or near commercialization, with their corresponding applications, makes this an outstanding book for anyone who designs or specifies sensors." -John J. Shea, IEEE Electrical Insulation Magazine, January/February - Vol. 32, No. 1
