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.
The Aboveground Steel Storage Tank Handbook I like the summary of regulations in conjunction with industry standards and products. Usually a book covers one or the other. --Wayne Geyer, Executive Vice-President, Steel Tank Institute I think this is a valuable text in that it does a very good job presenting the two types of ASTs. --Darryl J. Butkos, Hydrogeologist and Environmental Engineer The U.S. aboveground storage tank (AST) market will approach $2.0 billion in 1995 and has an annual growth rate of approximately 5 percent. Shop-built ASTs have proliferated over the last 10 years and are replacing the underground tanks that have caused a large percentage of groundwater contamination. Larger field-erected tanks are now found at almost every industrial facility because of their greater reliability and the lessened risk of environmental spills. The Aboveground Steel Storage Tank Handbook discusses the myriad of regulations, codes, and manufacturing standards and shows how they are intertwined. It is the first handbook on aboveground storage tanks that explains the unique differences between field-erected ASTs and shop-built ASTs. The authors have divided the Handbook into four easy-to-understand sections: Markets, Regulations, Standards, and Products. Anyone who finds himself or herself working through the maze of the AST compliance paperwork will find this book to be a great benefit as a single-source reference guide.
The MedTech ecosystem in India is emerging and the Indian medical devices industry is on the growth curve, estimated to be a 14 Billion USD industry by 2020. However, the ecosystem is poorly understood with its diverse healthcare systems, complex stakeholders and limited available data. It is important to understand the MedTech ecosystem in India well before developing new medical technologies that suit this environment. In this book, the author shares his experiences, anecdotes, insights and failures while inventing medical devices in India over the last five years. The idea is to give entrepreneurs (clinicians, engineers, designers, business professionals) a realistic expectation of the time, money, co-ordination and teamwork required to develop a new medical device in India. This book is specially recommended for Indian healthcare professionals who are passionate about solving unmet clinical challenges by inventing new medical devices, but are not sure of how to go about taking their idea from a concept stage to an actual product. Entrepreneurs from engineering, design and business backgrounds, will also find this book useful, as it illustrates ways to engage with doctors, and gives a comprehensive perspective of the path from ideation to commercialization. This book attempts to address all common queries a budding entrepreneur in India can have such as "Where to find clinical challenges worth solving?" "How to find them?" " How do I form a cross-disciplinary team?" "Where do I find these people?" "If I have a great idea, when and how can I sell it?" "How long does it take to make a new medical device in India?" " How can I raise money for this development?" "How can full time practicing doctors work with engineers to develop a new device?" "How can engineers engage doctors for clinical inputs and validation?" " How can an invention that is developed at an academic institute be successfully translated to market through a start up company?" "How and when can I start making money?". The list is endless and understandably so because the MedTech ecosystem in India is still evolving and growing from infancy to adulthood. This book also provides in great detail, real life examples of financial expenditures necessary for various stages of the device development process and some financial terms for licensing and investment deals.
