Springer Series in Measurement Science & Technology: Volume 2 2014

The Springer Series in Measurement Science and Technology comprehensively covers the
science and technology of measurement, addressing all aspects of the subject from the
fundamental physical principles through to the state-of-the-art in applied and industrial
metrology. Volumes published in the series cover theoretical developments, experimental
techniques and measurement best practice, devices and technology, data analysis,
uncertainty, and standards, with application to physics, chemistry, materials science,
engineering and the life sciences.

The series includes textbooks for advanced students and research monographs for
established researchers needing to stay up to date with the latest developments in the field.
