Introduction to Spintronics by siebo — last modified September 15, 2009 - 09:18
<p>Using spin to replace or augment the role of charge in signal processing devices, computing systems and circuits may improve speed, power consumption, and device density in some cases-making the study of spinone of the fastest-growing areas in micro- and nanoelectronics. With most of the literature on the subject still highly advanced and heavily theoretical, the demand for a practical introduction to the concepts relating to spin has only now been filled. <p><b><i>Explains effects such as giant magnetoresistance, the subject of the 2007 Nobel Prize in physics </i></b> <p><b>Introduction to Spintronics</b> is an accessible, organized, and progressive presentation of the quantum mechanical concept of spin. The authors build a foundation of principles and equations underlying the physics, transport, and dynamics of spin in solid state systems. They explain the use of spin for encoding qubits in quantum logic processors; clarify how spin-orbit interaction forms the basis for certain spin-based devices such as spintronic field effect transistors; and discuss the effects of magnetic fields on spin-based device performance. <p><b><i>Covers active hybrid spintronic devices, monolithic spintronic devices, passive spintronic devices, and devices based on the giant magnetoresistance effect</i></b> <p>The final chapters introduce the burgeoning field of spin-based reversible logic gates, spintronic embodiments of quantum computers, and other topics in quantum mechanics that have applications in spintronics. An <b>Introduction to Spintronics</b> provides the knowledge and understanding of the field needed to conduct independent research in spintronics.</p>

Introduction to Nanoscience and Nanotechnology by siebo — last modified September 16, 2009 - 13:12
<p>The maturation of nanotechnology has revealed it to be a unique and distinct discipline rather than a specialization within a larger field. Its textbook cannot afford to be a chemistry, physics, or engineering text focused on nano. It must be an integrated and multidisciplinary nano textbook. The archetype of the modern nano textbook, this text builds a solid background in characterization and fabrication methods while integrating the physics, chemistry, and biology facets. The remainder of this color text focuses on applications, examining engineering aspects as well as nanomaterials and industry-specific applications in such areas as energy, electronics, and biotechnology.</p>

Nanotechnology: Legal Aspects by siebo — last modified September 15, 2009 - 11:51
<p>Existing laws have a generality that permits them to be applied to nanotechnology, but eventually it will be necessary to generate legislation targeted to issues specific to nanotechnology. As nanotechnology continues to develop into commercially viable products, legal doctrines are increasingly likely to play an important role in protecting intellectual property, facilitating financial transactions, and handling health, safety, and environmental issues. <p><b>Nanotechnology:&nbsp; Legal Aspects</b> provides thorough, yet comprehensible overview of different legal doctrines that are relevant to nanotechnology and explains how they may apply in the development, commercialization, and use of nano-products. The book is divided into three parts that correspond to the different phases in the lifecycle of nano-products: <i>Protection</i>, <i>Regulation</i>, and <i>Liability</i>. The in-depth coverage of these topics in a single source sets this work apart from others at the interface of law and nanoscience. <p><b><i>Accessible to those without specific training in either nanotechnology or law... </i></b> <p><b>Nanotechnology:&nbsp; Legal Aspects</b> offers a reader-friendly and affordable alternative that appeals to nano-aware audiences as well as legal professionals, students, and scientists who wish to build a greater understanding of the legal aspects of nanotechnology.</p>

Self-Organization During Friction: Advanced Surface-Engineered Materials and Systems Design by siebo — last modified September 21, 2009 - 07:36
<p>In our present era of nanoscience and nanotechnology, new materials are poised to take center stage in dramatically improving friction and wear behavior under extreme conditions. Compiled by two eminent experts, Self-Organization During Friction: Advanced Surface-Engineered Materials and Systems Design details the latest advances and developments in self-organization phenomena, physical and chemical aspects of friction, and new methods of friction control using advanced materials and coatings.</p><p>Approaching nanomaterials from the perspective of irreversible thermodynamics and self-organization, this work presents a new approach to developing an emerging generation of surface-engineered self-adaptive nanostructured materials. The book demonstrates how nanoscale structure, synergistic alloying, and the non-equilibrium state of surface-engineered layers affects the capacity of these next-generation materials to resist wear in heavily loaded tribosystems. These links become clear through discussions on non-equilibrium thermodynamics, tribological compatibility, and self-organization phenomena during friction. International experts also supply cutting-edge information on nanocrystalline and nanolaminated coatings while tracing new trends in materials science and surface engineering at the nanoscale.</p><p>By combining detailed discussions on the underlying theory with practical examples of extreme tribological applications, Self-Organization During Friction outlines a forward-looking strategy for developing and implementing new surface-engineered materials that promise previously unattainable levels of tribological performance.</p>
