  • Semiconductor Device-Based Sensors for Gas, Chemical, and Biomedical Applicationsby Fan Ren; Stephen J Pearton

    CRC Press 2016; US$ 181.95

    Sales of U.S. chemical sensors represent the largest segment of the multi-billion-dollar global sensor market, which includes instruments for chemical detection in gases and liquids, biosensors, and medical sensors. Although silicon-based devices have dominated the field, they are limited by their general inability to operate in harsh environments... more...

  • Siliceneby Michelle J.S. Spencer; Tetsuya Morishita

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 94.71

    This book reviews the current state-of-the art of single layer silicene up to thicker silicon nanosheets, and their structure, properties and potential applications. Silicene is a newly discovered material that is one atomic layer think. It is a two-dimensional (2D) nanomaterial that is classified as a nanosheet, which has large lateral dimensions... more...

  • Biomimeticsby Bharat Bhushan

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 185.07

    This revised, updated and expanded new edition presents an overview of biomimetics and biologically inspired structured surfaces. It deals with various examples of biomimetics which include surfaces with roughness-induced superomniphobicity, self-cleaning, antifouling, and controlled adhesion. The focus in the book is on the Lotus Effect,... more...

  • Semiconductor Statisticsby J. S. Blakemore; Heinz K. Henisch

    Elsevier Science 2016; US$ 72.95

    Semiconductor Statistics presents statistics aimed at complementing existing books on the relationships between carrier densities and transport effects. The book is divided into two parts. Part I provides introductory material on the electron theory of solids, and then discusses carrier statistics for semiconductors in thermal equilibrium. Of course... more...
