Abstract

A transducer is an essential part of any information process- ing system that operates in more than one physical domain. These domains are characterized by the type of quantity that provides the carrier of the relevant information. Exam- ples are the optical, electrical, mechanical, and magnetic domains. A transducer is the part of the instrument that converts information about a measurand from one domain into another, ideally without information loss. So, a trans- ducer can formally be defined as a device that converts one form of energy into another, with the intention of preserving information.
