Item description for Piezoelectric Sensorics by Gustav H. Gautschi...
This book covers the entire field of piezoelectric sensors for mechanical measurands. Scientists, engineers, technicians and students in engineering will find in this book for the first time, a complete overview of these special type of sensors. Extensive practical advice is given throughout the text, allowing the reader to profit from the author's many years experience. The book offers an overview of the most important piezoelectric materials and their properties as well as a consistent terminology for describing sensors. It contains a description of sensors for force, strain, pressure, acceleration and acoustic emission and an in-depth description of the special electronics used with piezolectric sensors. Information on calibrating sensors and electronics are given in addition to numerous examples of practical applications.

Piezoelectrics by a worker in the related field of ferroelectrics Apr 16, 2008
This book is well written and has a great bibliography. I would have preferred it had not been split off from the previous combined volume as I don't know where to get the first volume in an English version.
Sensorics is a piezoelectric basics Feb 15, 2003
Only having read about ten percent of this book so far, one might say that a review may need to wait. On the other hand I rarely see a technical book showing as much craft and wisdom that I have to write something immediately.
Mr. Gautschi has given us a text that primes us for both the technical aspects of the subject as well as the deeper, understandably hard-to-ferret-out details of the topic. I'd say it's anecdotal at times, but he's taken a typically dry subject and made it come to life by weaving historic, and at times obscure side notes to the discussions on his chosen subject.
The wisdom of the book is quite evident, and I appreciate this immensely.
The book also contains applications information that is a welcome departure from the steady grind, grind, grind of analytical proofs that only a molecule could appreciate.
Sure, there's that stuff, too. Yet this book combines a lot of information on the subject of piezoelectric devices and sensors to the point it is actually useful and meaningful as a stand alone reference.
