This chapter is not about providing complete mathematical analysis of some systems but rather to show a new generation of sensor engineers that there are an enormous number of exciting possibilities, provided we are prepared to break from the somewhat rigid suite of sensors of the past. These ideas are summarised at the end of the chapter.
