New and Published Books

  1. Bio-Inspired Wettability Surfaces

    Developments in Micro- and Nanostructures

    Edited by Zheng Yongmei, Cheng Qunfeng, Hou Yongping, Yuan Chen

    Through natural evolvement in thousands of years, biosurfaces have become highly adaptable to display their biological functions perfectly. Interestingly, they have developed micro-/nanostructures with gradient features to achieve smart wetting controls, such as ultra-hydrophobic water repellency...

  2. 50 Years in the Semiconductor Underground

    By David K. Ferry

    This book was derived from a talk that the author gave at the International Conference on Advanced Nanodevices and Nanotechnology in Hawaii. The book is about science and engineering, but is not on science and engineering. It is not a textbook which develops the understanding of a small part of the...

  6. Hydrogenated Dilute Nitride Semiconductors

    Theory, Properties, and Applications

    Edited by Gianluca Ciatto

    The nonlinear behavior of nitrogen and the passivation effect of hydrogen in dilute nitrides open the way to the manufacture of a new class of nanostructured devices with in-plane variation of the optical band gap. This book addresses the modifications of the electronic structure and of the optical...

  8. High Resolution Imaging

    Detectors and Applications

    Edited by Swapan K. Saha

    Interferometric observations need snapshots of very high time resolution of the order of (i) frame integration of about 100 Hz or (ii) photon-recording rates of several megahertz (MHz). Detectors play a key role in astronomical observations, and since the explanation of the photoelectric effect by...

  10. Biomimetic Architectures by Plasma Processing

    Fabrication and Applications

    Edited by Surojit Chattopadhyay

    Plasma-processed biomimetic structures are an extremely focused and small subset of biomimetics. Although other methods can also be adopted, experimental synthesis of biomimetic structures mainly focuses on plasma processing. This book deals with the theoretical description of photonic structures...
