This booklet narrates the advance of assorted biomimetic microelectromechanical platforms (MEMS) sensors, corresponding to strain, circulate, acceleration, chemical, and tactile sensors, which are encouraged through sensing phenomena that exist in marine lifestyles. The study defined during this ebook is multi-faceted and combines the services and realizing from varied fields, together with biomimetics, microfabrication, sensor engineering, MEMS layout, nanotechnology, and fabric technology. a sequence of chapters learn the layout and fabrication of MEMS sensors that functionality on piezoresistive, piezoelectric, pressure gauge, and chemical sensing rules. via translating nature-based engineering strategies to synthetic man-made know-how, we will be able to locate cutting edge ideas to severe problems.

Among all classes of the fish group, sharks, a subclass of the Elasmobranchii, which is one major category of cartilaginous fish, exhibit extraordinary smelling power in water [5]. They are able to pinpoint one drop of blood in one million drops of water and to identify the location of blood source even from few hundred meters away. Such sensing ability is attributed to the special morphology of the olfactory organ of sharks. In fact, the olfactory organs of sharks demonstrate considerable diversity in position, size and form, which is usually related to their living environment and habitat [5].

The pheromones are believed initially to be captured by the lipid-coated nanopores that are scattered on the surface of the sensila. This lipid layer also significantly contributes the concentration and translocation of odorant molecules to the dendrites of the olfactory receptors [17]. Inspired by the alluring multi-functionality of lipid-coated nanopres, Yusko et al. [18] reported the design of synthetic nanopores coated with fluid lipid bilayers for molecular analysis of single proteins, as shown in Fig.
