“A very useful book for the microscopy field. Alberto Diaspro has done a great job as editor, and I’m sure this book will be appreciated by its readers.”

Providing an interdisciplinary look at optics technology, this book investigates the connection between nanotechnology, MOEMS, and biotechnology. It covers fundamental relationships and system applications and includes design examples and numerous useful references. The author discusses emerging technologies augmented with MEMS, MOEMS, nanotechnology, biotechnology, fiber optic sensing, integrated optics, optical computing and signal processing, integrated optics, and electro-optics. He uses case studies to illustrate how emerging optics technologies are applied in the marketplace.

Edited by a pioneer in the area of advanced semiconductor materials, this book contains contributions from experts who explore the development and use of sensors in biological and medical applications. It covers advanced sensing and communications, modeling of DNA-derivative architecture, and the use of enzyme and quartz crystal microbalance-based biosensors. The book also addresses biosensors in human behavior measurement, sweat rate wearable sensors, and the future of medical imaging. Contributors discuss application of high-resolution CdTe detectors in gamma ray imaging and advances in positron emission tomography technology.

This book documents key biological solutions that provide a model for innovations in engineering and science. Leading experts explore a wide range of topics, including artificial senses and organs, mimicry at the cell–materials interface, modeling of plant cell wall architecture, biomimetic composites, artificial muscles, biomimetic optics, and the mimicking of birds, insects, and marine biology. The book also discusses applications of biomimetics in manufacturing, products, medicine, and robotics; biologically inspired design as a tool for interdisciplinary education; and the biomimetic process in artistic creation.
