Applied Scanning Probe Methods XIII: Biomimetics and by Bharat Bhushan, Harald Fuchs

By Bharat Bhushan, Harald Fuchs

The volumes XI, XII and XIII research the actual and technical beginning for contemporary development in utilized scanning probe ideas. the 1st quantity got here out in January 2004, the second one to fourth volumes in early 2006 and the 5th to 7th volumes in overdue 2006. the sphere is progressing so quick that there's a want for a collection of volumes each 12 to 18 months to seize most modern advancements. those volumes represent a well timed finished assessment of SPM purposes. After introducing scanning probe microscopy, together with sensor know-how and tip characterization, chapters on use in a variety of business functions are provided. business functions span topographic and dynamical floor stories of thin-film semiconductors, polymers, paper, ceramics, and magnetic and organic fabrics. The chapters were written by means of prime researchers and alertness scientists from world wide and from numerous industries to supply a broader viewpoint.

Intelligent Textiles for Personal Protection and Safety

Terrorism has develop into a vital part of lifestyle in recent times and has dramatically affected the standard of lifestyles for people in society. know-how is the foremost to scuffling with terrorism and keeping usual electorate, first responders and infantrymen, between others, from probability. the world of clever or clever textiles is a slightly new yet swiftly rising self-discipline with a excessive capability for payoff within the struggle opposed to terrorism.

Application of Fracture Mechanics to Composite Materials

This quantity presents an invaluable precis of present wisdom at the program of fracture mechanics to composite fabrics. it's been written to fill the distance among the literature on primary rules of fracture mechanics and the distinctive courses at the fracture houses of traditional fabrics, reminiscent of metals, polymers and ceramics.

Materials Handbook

Annotation. AnnotationThe fabrics Handbookis an encyclopedic, A-to-Z association of all kinds of fabrics, that includes their key functionality homes, crucial features and functions in product layout. fabrics comprise ferrous and nonferrous metals, plastics, elastomers, ceramics, woods, composites, chemical compounds, minerals, textiles, fuels, foodstuffs and typical plant and animal components --more than 13,000 in all.
