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.
This new edition of Thermal Energy Storage Systems offers the up-to-date coverage needed to address recent R&D, including much of the authors' own work, which furthers more energy efficient and sustainable technological methods and solutions. New material also covers analysis, design and performance improvement as well as life-cycle costing and assessment. The authors address real-life technical and operational problems, enabling the reader to gain an understanding of the fundamental principles and the practical applications of thermal energy storage technology. The book has been thoroughly revised and updated for use as a text on alternative and renewable energy courses, with case studies updated as well as problems added at the end of each chapter. Enables the reader to gain an understanding of the fundamental principles and practical applications of thermal energy storage (TES) technology Includes state-of-the-art descriptions of many facets of TES systems and applications Summarises significant new research on energy efficient and sustainable technological methods and solutions Allows students to explore the potential of TES systems via computer simulations and to hence appreciate the technical details involved in a TES system design Significantly revised for use as a graduate text on emerging renewable and alternative energy courses, including updated case studies, worked-out examples, problems and solutions at the end of each chapter
When American journalist Benjamin Barrett is sent to Constantinople to report on the sea trials of a new submarine, the assignment soon becomes more eventful than he had predicted, particularly after rescuing a certain professor from an attack...
