Physics, chemistry, technology (however mathematics) of sensors consist of more open questions and unsolved problems then well-defined points. In this paper we point out the possibility of a more effective information extraction from sensor signals using power spectra instead of the mean value only. After introducing this new measurement principle and experimental demonstration of its usefulness we put on four (unsolved) questions for further discussions. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.
