Summary

The requirement of more exacting specifications on processed parts and the acceleration of energy costs have made necessary the development of more accurate, selective, and stable process controls in recent years. The past, present and future states of the art of the sensor in process control systems are discussed here with emphasis on new developments in ceramic and metal oxide in-situ devices.
