Summary

Transducers respond to changes in the thermodynamic state of the system, including the tranducers material, where the state is determined by the configurational changes due to applied forces. Transducers, are used to measure these changes brought about by chemical, electrical, mechanical, and thermal fields that interact to produce physical displacements resulting in diffusion, polarization, strain, and changes in entropy, and their converse.
