Summary

Departing from the style of typical manuals, Hands-On Introduction to LabVIEW for Scientists and Engineers, Fourth Edition, uses a learn-by-doing approach to guide students through using this powerful laboratory tool. It helps students--who are not assumed to have prior experience--master the computer-based skills they need to carry out effective experiments.

Author Biography


John Essick is Professor of Physics at Reed College. His research interests focus on the optoelectronic properties of semiconductors. Since 1993, Dr. Essick has taught computer-based experimentation using LabVIEW as part of Reed's junior-level Advanced Laboratory and has used LabVIEW to carry out a variety of research projects.
