About the author

Dr. Carlos Cabrera is professor at the Department of Chemistry of the University of Puerto Rico, Rio Piedras Campus. Cabrera's main research area is on the development of nanocatalysts for clean energy technology such as fuel cell systems. This energy system is of importance for the development of environmentally friendly energy conversion and storage based on alcohols. Fuel cells are becoming a promising clean energy system for vehicles, portable devices, and power generators. This area of research is part of the research conducted at the Institute for Functional Nanomaterials (IFN). Through the institute, Cabrera will develop catalytic nanomaterials for fuel cell testbeds and prototypes that will be evaluated at the NASA Glenn Research Center in Cleveland, Ohio. This creation of the IFN is creating a unique opportunity for the further development of Cabrera's nanotechnology research since new state-of-the-art instrumentations and unique partnerships will be established with nanotechnology centers located at Purdue University, University of Massachusetts, Northwestern University, Cornell University, and the Argonne National Laboratory.

Dr. Felix A. Miranda

received his B.S. degree in physics from the University of Puerto Rico in 1983, an M.S. degree in physics from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, USA, in 1986, and a Ph.D. degree in physics from Case Western Reserve University, USA, in 1991. He is currently chief of the Antenna and Optical Systems Branch in the Communications, Instrumentation, and Controls Division. His areas of expertise are antenna technology, ferroelectric tunable microwave components, and microwave integrated circuits and devices for space and ground-based communications.

While many books are dedicated to individual aspects of nanofabrication, there is no single source that defines and explains the total vision of the field. Filling this gap, Nanofabrication Handbook presents a unique collection of new and the most important established approaches to nanofabrication. Contributors from leading research facilities and academic institutions around the world define subfields, offer practical instructions and examples, and pave the way for future research.

Helping readers to select the proper fabricating technique for their experiments, the book provides a broad vision of the most critical problems and explains how to solve them. It includes basic definitions and introduces the main underlying concepts of nanofabrication. The book also discusses the major advantages and disadvantages of each approach and offers a wide variety of examples of cutting-edge applications.

Each chapter focuses on a particular method or aspect of study. For every method, the contributors describe the underlying theoretical basis, resolution, patterns and substrates used, and applications. They show how applications at the nanoscale require a different process and understanding than those at the microscale. For each experiment, they elucidate key solutions to problems relating to materials, methods, and surface considerations.

A complete resource for this rapidly emerging interdisciplinary field, this handbook provides practical information for planning the experiments of any project that employs nanofabrication techniques. It gives readers a foundation to enter the complex world of nanofabrication and inspires the scientific community at large to push the limits of nanometer resolution.

Electrical Engineering 101 covers the basic theory and practice of electronics, starting by answering the question "What is electricity?" It goes on to explain the fundamental principles and components, relating them constantly to real-world examples. Sections on tools and troubleshooting give engineers deeper understanding and the know-how to create and maintain their own electronic design projects. Unlike other books that simply describe electronics and provide step-by-step build instructions, EE101 delves into how and why electricity and electronics work, giving the reader the tools to take their electronics education to the next level. It is written in a down-to-earth style and explains jargon, technical terms and schematics as they arise. The author builds a genuine understanding of the fundamentals and shows how they can be applied to a range of engineering problems.

This third edition includes more real-world examples and a glossary of formulae. It contains new coverage of:

MicrocontrollersFPGAsClasses of componentsMemory (RAM, ROM, etc.)Surface mountHigh speed designBoard layoutAdvanced digital electronics (e.g. processors)Transistor circuits and circuit designOp-amp and logic circuitsUse of test equipmentGives readers a simple explanation of complex concepts, in terms they can understand and relate to everyday life. Updated content throughout and new material on the latest technological advances.Provides readers with an invaluable set of tools and references that they can use in their everyday work.
Extensively revised and updated to encompass the latest developments in the PIC 18FXXX series, this book demonstrates how to develop a range of microcontroller applications through a project-based approach. After giving an introduction to programming in C using the popular mikroC Pro for PIC and MPLAB XC8 languages, this book describes the project development cycle in full. The book walks you through fully tried and tested hands-on projects, including many new, advanced topics such as Ethernet programming, digital signal processing, and RFid technology. This book is ideal for engineers, technicians, hobbyists and students who have knowledge of the basic principles of PIC microcontrollers and want to develop more advanced applications using the PIC18F series.

This book Includes over fifty projects which are divided into three categories: Basic, Intermediate, and Advanced.

New projects in this edition:

Logic probe Custom LCD font design Hi/Lo game Generating various waveforms in real-time Ultrasonic height measurement Frequency counter Reaction timer GPS projects Closed-loop ON/OFF temperature control Bluetooth projects (master and slave) RFid projects Clock using Real-time-clock (RTC) chip RTC alarm project Graphics LCD (GLCD) projects Barometer+thermometer+altimeter project Plotting temperature on GLCD Ethernet web browser based control Ethernet UDP based control Digital signal processing (Low Pass Filter design) Automotive LIN bus project Automotive CAN bus project Multitasking projects (using both cooperative and Round-robin scheduling) Unipolar stepper motor projects Bipolar stepper motor projects Closed-loop ON/OFF DC motor control

A clear introduction to the PIC 18FXXX microcontroller's architecture Covers developing wireless and sensor network applications, SD card projects, and multi-tasking; all demonstrated with the block and circuit diagram, program description in PDL, program listing, and program descriptionIncludes more than 50 basic, intermediate, and advanced projects
