Microdrop Generation

Eric R. Lee
December 10, 2002

The applications and use of inkjet-like microfluidic drop ejectors have grown rapidly in many fields, including biotechnology, drug discovery, combinatorial chemistry, and microfabrication. Yet to date, end users and even designers of microdrop systems for scientific applications have had no books...

Nanoelectromechanics in Engineering and Biology

Michael Pycraft Hughes
October 29, 2002

The success, growth, and virtually limitless applications of nanotechnology depend upon our ability to manipulate nanoscale objects, which in turn depends upon developing new insights into the interactions of electric fields, nanoparticles, and the molecules that surround them. In the first book to...

Nanostructured Silicon-based Powders and Composites

Andre Pierre Legrand, Christiane Senemaud
October 24, 2002

In recent years an increasing interest has been devoted to nanostructured composites. This attention is largely due to exciting possible applications ranging from new catalysts to the preparation of nanocomposites ceramics, with significant improvements in their properties. This book provides a...

Spin Dependent Transport in Magnetic Nanostructures

Sadamichi Maekawa, Teruya Shinjo
July 11, 2002

In magnetic systems of nano-meter size, the interplay between spin and charge of electrons provides unique transport phenomena. In magnetic superlattices, magnetic and non-magnetic metallic thin films with thickness of the order of one nano-meter are piled-up alternately. Since the discovery of...

Nanotechnology: Basic Science and Emerging Technologies

Mick Wilson, Kamali Kannangara, Geoff Smith, Michelle Simmons, Burkhard Raguse
June 27, 2002

The emergence of nanoscience portends a revolution in technology that will soon impact virtually every facet of our technological lives. Yet there is little understanding of what it is among the educated public and often among scientists and engineers in other disciplines. Furthermore, despite the...

Smart Technology Demonstrators and Devices 2001

G Manson, N Parkes, G.R Tomlinson, K Worden, W.A Bullough, W.J Staszewski
June 01, 2002

In recent years there have been many significant advances in smart technologies. To assess this progress, to promote new concepts, and to aid the transfer of technologies from the laboratory to the marketplace, a unique conference was held in December 2001in Edinburgh, Scotland. Smart Technology...

Microelectrofluidic Systems: Modeling and Simulation

Tianhao Zhang, Krishnendu Chakrabarty, Richard B. Fair
May 17, 2002

Composite systems that integrate microelectromechanical and microelectrofluidic (MEF) components with electronics are emerging as the next generation of system-on-a-chip (SOC) designs. However, there remains a pressing need for a structured methodology for MEFS design automation, including...

Atomic and Molecular Clusters

Roy L. Johnston
April 25, 2002

Cluster physics is the foundation of the increasingly important field of nanotechnology. Clusters, ranging in size from a few to many millions of atoms, constitute a fascinating field of research in physics, chemistry and materials science. They are formed by most of the elements of the Periodic...
