Power of nanotechnology revealed in research on lithium reactive nanomaterials for lithium ion batteries
(Nanowerk News) Nanotechnology continues to transform a wide variety of processes and Elsevier shares these nanotechnology breakthroughs through books and journals. The Elsevier journal Nano Today highlighted the major roles of nanosize in lithium reactive nanomaterials for Li ion batteries. Elsevier Science & Technology Books' imprint, William Andrew, provides in-depth treatment of nanotechnology research in its recent and forthcoming books
Nanotechnology: An Introduction by Jeremy Ramsden. This book provides an overview of the rapidly growing and developing field of nanotechnology, focusing on key essentials, and structured around a robust anatomy of the subject. The newcomer to nanotechnology, who may well have a strong background in one of the traditional disciplines such as physics, mechanical or electrical engineering, chemistry or biology, or who may have been working in microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) technology, is confronted with a bewildering range of information. This book brings together the principles, theory and practice of nanotechnology, giving a broad yet authoritative introduction to the possibilities and limitations of this exciting field.
Microfabrication for Industrial Applications by Regina Luttge. This book focuses on the industrial perspective for micro- and nanofabrication methods including large-scale manufacturing, transfer of concepts from lab to factory, process tolerance, yield, robustness, and cost. It gives a history of miniaturization, micro- and nanofabrication, and surveys industrial fields of application, illustrating fabrication processes of relevant micro and nano devices.
Emerging Nanotechnologies for Manufacturing by Waqar Ahmed & M. J. Jackson. Nanotechnology is a technology on the verge of commercialization. In this important work, an unrivalled team of international experts provides an exploration of the emerging nanotechnologies that are poised to make the nano-revolution a reality in the manufacturing sector. From their different perspectives, the contributors explore how developments in nanotechnology are transforming areas as diverse as medicine, advanced materials, energy, electronics and agriculture.
Microsystems for Bioelectronics by Victor V. Zhirnov & Ralph K. Cavin III. This book considers physical principles and trends in extremely scaled autonomous microsystems for biomedical applications. It provides a physics-based assessment of the ultimate potential of miniaturization technologies. In particular, fundamental scaling limits for energy sources, sensors, computation and communication subsystems are developed. The book is comprised of seven chapters that examine various facets of semiconductor bioelectronic microsystems. The book targets a broad audience with engineering background and can also be useful for the biomedical community.
