dc.description.abstractThis paper proposes a "transduction path" method of analysis for solid state sensors. It is based upon the idea that a sensor represents a transduction path from some input measurand to an electrical output. The transduction path may consist of one or more transduction or modification principles drawn from all fields of science. Also proposed is a "transduction path diagram" which provides a graphical representation of a transduction path. Background material concerning the development and description of solid state sensors is presented. Sensor measurands are identified and categorized by energy form. The known transduction and modification principles are presented as fundamental building blocks of the transduction path and cross-indexed by measurand. The transduction path diagram is introduced and examples of existing single and multistep transducers are presented. Finally, the transduction path method is shown to be valuable as a systematic method of investigating sensor configurations.en_US
