"…Despite the enormous potential of nanotechnology for good and for harm, there has been woefully little critical analytical attention paid to its social and environmental implications. This volume is an important corrective to that inattention. [It] starts a dialogue that is absolutely vital if we are to have hope for democratic participation in determining the role, purpose, and direction of technological innovation." — Kenneth A. Gould, City University of New York— Brooklyn College and the Graduate Center, USA

A comprehensive introduction to nanotechnology and its potential global implications, this book critiques the latest developments relating to the environment, health, water and food, as well as potential implications for global trade, labor and marginalized populations. It presents ideas for improving technological appropriateness.

Geoffrey B. Smith and Claes-Goran S. Granqvist This book explores the role of nanotechnology in meeting challenges inherent in minimizing environmental impacts while maximizing energy resources. It provides an overview of our energy supply and examines methods to increase energy production while reducing cost. It also addresses novel energy sources and explores the ways in which nanotechnologies can improve structural engineering of energy sources, create new methods of cooling, and inspire fresh approaches to water supply and treatment. In addressing these critical issues, the book provides an authoritative resource that forms the foundation for new research and product development.

I.M. Dharmadasa Sheffield Hallam University, England, UK

This book concentrates on the latest developments in our understanding of solid-state device physics. The material presented is mainly experimental and based on CdTe thin-film solar cells. It extends these new findings to CIGS thin-film solar cells and presents a new device design based on graded bandgap multilayer solar cells. This design has been experimentally tested using the well-researched GaAs/AlGaAs system, and initial devices have shown impressive device parameters. These devices are capable of absorbing all radiation (UV, visible, and infrared) within the solar spectrum and combine "impact ionization" and "impurity photovoltaic" effects. The improved device understanding presented in this book should impact and guide future design and low-cost thin-film solar panel manufacture. Catalog no.

Handbook for Critical Cleaning Second Edition Edited by

Barbara Kanegsberg and Edward Kanegsberg “... a tour de force, a work written by experts who have worked at the interface between science and industry and who write from that basis, not from an ivory tower. The price of these two formidable volumes is not insignificant. But set against the cost of defective production, just for one hour’s downtime or components having to be re-worked or completely rejected, it is an investment that will pay for itself many times over. On that basis, one is more than happy to strongly recommend it.” —Anselm Kuhn, Galvanotechnik, July 2011

Features: • Explains the "how," "why," and "when" of product cleaning during manufacturing • Delves into topics including cleaning agents and systems, process validation and monitoring, analytical techniques, cleanroom design/ operation, specific applications, worker safety, and sustainability/environmental considerations • Addresses today’s manufacturing challenges, including increasing performance requirements, miniaturization, complex supply chain, economic pressures, and safety/environmental constraints • Offers a balanced perspective that helps manufacturers make sound business decisions that optimize productivity, quality, cos-effectiveness, and competitiveness of new and existing cleaning processes
