Explore the potential for nanotechnologies to transform future mobile and Internet communications. Based on a research collaboration between Nokia, Helsinki University of Technology, and the University of Cambridge, here leading researchers review the current state-of-the art and future prospects for: * Novel multifunctional materials, dirt repellent, self-healing surface materials, and lightweight structural materials capable of adapting their shape * Portable energy storage using supercapacitor-battery hybrids based on new materials including carbon nanohorns and porous electrodes, fuel cell technologies, energy harvesting and more efficient solar cells * Electronics and computing advances reaching beyond IC scaling limits, new computing approaches and architectures, embedded intelligence and future memory technologies. * Nanoscale transducers for mechanical, optical and chemical sensing, sensor signal processing, and nanoscale actuation * Nanoelectronics to create ultrafast and adaptive electronics for future radio technologies * Flat panel displays with greater robustness, improved resolution, brightness and contrast, and mechanical flexibility * Manufacturing and innovation processes, plus commercialization of nanotechnologies.
What do you get when you drop a silver unicorn into a mix of migrant workers, human trafficking victims, and homegrown terrorists? You get a vacation tailor-made for Ginny Arthur, owner and operator of the Arthur and Arthur Security Agency. While recuperating from a gunshot wound suffered in a parking lot shoot-out ("Payback"), Ginny discovers--along with the questionable joys of snowmobiling and cross-country skiing--that the inhabitants of Michigan's Winter Wonderland keep more than frozen dinners in "Cold Storage."
''This work is outstanding....The charm of the work lies herein, that it presents in a coherent fashion a great deal of valuable material. I strongly recommend it in particular to graduate students in experimental semiconductor physics.'' ---Contemporary Physics
