The 1755 Lisbon Earthquake: Revisited by Luiz Mendes-Victor, Carlos Sousa Oliveira, João Azevedo, A.

By Luiz Mendes-Victor, Carlos Sousa Oliveira, João Azevedo, A. Ribeiro

The 1755 earthquake and tsunami have been influential not just in Portugal yet in all eu and North African international locations the place the devastating results have been felt. the full global was once deeply inspired and the dialogue of its reasons generated a large number of medical and metaphysical hypothesis. It encouraged philosophers, poets and writers. The socio-economic effects of the development have been nice and affected the longer term association and improvement of Portugal. the potential of an analogous occurence urges society and the medical neighborhood to mirror on its lessons.

This paintings is of curiosity to specialists in seismology, earthquake engineering, civil safety, city making plans and it's a reference e-book for doctoral students.

Recent Studies in Atomic and Molecular Processes by David R. Bates (auth.), Arthur E. Kingston (eds.)

By David R. Bates (auth.), Arthur E. Kingston (eds.)

Sir David Bates celebrated his 70th birthday at the 18th November 1986. To mark this occasion a convention used to be held within the David Bates development on the Queen's collage of Belfast at the seventeenth and 18th November 1986. At this convention ex-students and co-workers of Sir David, who're said global specialists of their box of analysis, gave extensive stories of a specific quarter of atomic and molecular physics. This publication at the convention provides a special account of modern stories in atomic and molecular strategies in a variety of learn fields. This quantity is devoted to Sir David by way of his neighbors as a token in their affection and appreciate. it's was hoping that it'll supply an invaluable precis of present study in atomic and molecular physics and that it'll additionally exhibit the nice contribution which Sir David made to atomic and molecular physics. This convention was once supported by means of the USAF ecu place of work of Aerospace learn and improvement who we want to thank for his or her beneficiant help. Arthur E.

Frontiers of Multifunctional Integrated Nanosystems by Valentin N. Popov (auth.), Eugenia Buzaneva, Peter Scharff

By Valentin N. Popov (auth.), Eugenia Buzaneva, Peter Scharff (eds.)

A compendium of novel info on molecular-scale technological know-how and the appliance of nanocarbon, nanosilicon and biopolymer built-in nanosystems.

During the twentieth century, molecular-scale technology and nanotechnology built speedily, resulting in the development of leading edge fabrics - nanosystens from molecules (fullerenes), supramolecules (nanotubes, peapods, polymers, biopolymers (DNA, protein and their complexes) and semiconductor nanoparticles (nano-Si, SiOx, Si/SiGe dots, steel nanowires). This ebook provides interesting new advancements of the early twenty first century. major development has been made in nanotechnology of creating blocks for built-in nanosystems, unmarried and assembled molecules, nanoparticles characterisation, and multifunctional purposes of nanosystems.

The realisation and the applying of novel multifunctional nanosystems in electronics, optics, biomedicine (nano-bioelectronic units in accordance with DNA and proteins, silicon nanocrystal reminiscence units, monolithically built-in silicon photonics, nanocapsules, biosensor nanosystems) are defined by way of popular specialists.

More than Moore: Creating High Value Micro/Nanoelectronics by G. Q. Zhang, A. J. van Roosmalen (auth.), Guo Qi Zhang,

By G. Q. Zhang, A. J. van Roosmalen (auth.), Guo Qi Zhang, Alfred Roosmalen (eds.)

More than Moore (MtM) explores a brand new quarter of micro/nanoelectronics, which reaches past the bounds of traditional semiconductor applied sciences and functions. developing and integrating quite a few non-digital performance to semiconductor items, MtM specializes in growing excessive worth micro/nanoelectronics structures, motivating new technological probabilities and limitless software capability.

Drawing upon technological perception and vast useful adventure, G.Q. Zhang, A. J. van Roosmalen and individuals discuss:

The altering panorama of micro/nanoelectronics

Smart built-in platforms – from elements to products

RF applied sciences and systems

High voltage and power

Sensors and actuators on CMOS platforms



Semiconductor picture sensing

Heterogeneous integration - construction the basis for leading edge products

System point layout

More than Moore could be of curiosity to graduate scholars, engineers, scientists and R&D managers enthusiastic about the worth chain of semiconductors, micro/nanoelectronics, fabrics and kit, layout, client electronics, and wide program domains.
