General principles of transducers (sensors) 
    A measurand is a subject to measuring physical size, for example: acceleration, moving, force, expense, level, position, pressure, mechanical tension, temperature, speed etc. It can on occasion measureable be electric size, such, as a current, tension or frequency, which will be transformed in an electric signal, suitable for the use in other parts of the system. Thus a measuring transformer is an electric transducers element.

There are two types of semiconductor radiation sources: sources of incoherent radiation - LEDs and sources of coherent radiation - lasers. Greatest practical widespread radiation sources based on p- n junction.
Emission occurs due to recombination of injected carriers in a part of p -n- junction ( or a part of the p - n- region adjacent to the interface of p -n- junction). Recombination occurs at the transition from the upper carriers to lower levels, while transitions can be of two types - direct (no change of momentum ) and indirect (with a change of momentum). Interband transitions between the conduction band minimum and valence band maximum radiation accompanied by effective if direct transitions, ie, the minimum and maximum are located at the same value of the wave vector k. Such transitions occur, for example, in gallium arsenide for k = 0.
In semiconductors with indirect transitions probability of interband transitions is negligible. Nevertheless, radiative ...

Making of thermocouple
  The process to make a thermocouple is to create a firm joint (welding, Fig. 3) of two materials (wires). To this effect, you may use a power source of sufficient capacity (for example, LACT - laboratory autoconnected transformer, car battery). Connect a thermocouple (both free ends) with wires 1, being previously mechanicall  y connected, to one pole of power source(Fig. 1), and a contact, being connected with a piece of graphite (for example, pencil 2) - to the second pole.
   The electrical arc arises and the wires of thermocouple are welded if you touch the graphite with connected ends of thermocouple. The voltage, necessary for welding, is selected on experimental basis starting from not large voltages of 3-5 V. The optimal ...

Cryogenic temperature sensors

Produces germanium resistance thermometers of the bulk germanium, dispersed (, germanium films on insulating substrates. There are germanium thermistors, which are due to the low value of the magnetoresistance in magnetic fields up to 6 T to ensure accuracy of 0.01 K.

   To comparatively recent time the effect of Hall was used only for the study of electric properties of matters. With opening of elementary semiconductors and semiconductor connections, such, as, for example, G, gS, InSb, g, Ins, possessing large by mobility of transmitters current - electrons or holes, this effect found the row of essential applications for the row of devices.
   The staple of any the so-called sensor of hall - effect (Hall) serves as of these devices. He is a small on a size semiconductor plate of rectangular form with soldered to her by four wire electrodes from which two current, and two halls. This type of sensor got the name of crystalline. There are also pellicle sensors. On a thin isolating plate, for example mica, the skim of semiconductor matter is laid on, usually by the method of evaporation in a vacuum. Similarly as well as in the previous case, wire conclusions contact with a semiconductor.

   Hygrometer with a conductive film consists of a sensor - layer hygroscopic substance deposited on an insulating substrate. As a hygroscopic substance (hygrometer sensor) often use certain metal oxides, and other materials. Electrical contacts are made, usually in the form of a comb. With increasing gas humidity and therefore sensitive film its electrical resistance decreases. Dependence in most cases is exponential.
   Hygrometer with a conductive film has a fairly short response and is often used to determine the moisture content of small values of air (gas).
Depending on the humidity of the air (gas) in hygrometers with a conductive film changes the electrical resistance of the film - the sensor hygrometer.
   This type of hygrometer measures the relative humidity of the air, which...

Solders for soldering
   Solders are special alloys used in brazing. Soldering is carried out or with the aim of creating mechanically strong (sometimes sealed) seam, or with the aim of obtaining a constant (not burst or moving) electrical contact with small transfer resistance. When soldering the joints and solder are heated. Since the solder has a melting point much lower than the metals to be joined, then it melts, while the solder metals remain solid. On the border between the molten solder and the solid metal there are complex physical ...
