English | 2010-10-21 | ISBN: 3642144462 | PDF | 220 pages | 3 MB

Rare-Earth Implanted MOS Devices for Silicon Photonics: Microstructural, Electrical and Optoelectronic Properties
The book concentrates on the microstructural, electric and optoelectronic properties of rare-earth implanted MOS structures and their use as light emitters in potential applications. It describes the structural formation processes in the gate oxide during fabrication and under operation, how this microstructure development will affect the electrical device performance and how both microstructure and electrical characteristics determine the optoelectronic features of the light emitters. However, most of the discussed physical processes as well as the described fabrication methods and device characterization techniques are of general interest and are beyond the scope of this type of light emitter. The book will be of value to engineers, physicists, and scientists dealing either with Si based photonics in particular or optoelectronic device fabrication and characterization in general.

Polyphosphazenes for Medical Applications By Ian Teasdale, Oliver Brüggemann
2014 | 214 Pages | ISBN: 1909030880 | PDF | 19 MB

Polyphosphazenes for Medical Applications
Polyphosphazenes are a unique family of inorganic polymers with an unparalleled broad spectrum of properties. Furthermore, these properties can be easily fine-tuned by organic side-group substituents to give poly(organo)phosphazenes with precisely desired characteristics making them valuable tools to prepare multifunctional, advanced materials for biomedical applications. Bioerodible poly(organo)phosphazenes are of particular interest and with suitable organic substituents their rate of degradation can be tailored to give materials ranging from highly biostable to rapidly hydrolysable, with proven biocompatibility and nontoxic products. This volume provides an overview of the current state of development of poly(organo)phosphazenes designed specifically for use in medical applications. The objective is firstly to provide detailed information on the latest preparation techniques to synthesise well-defined, customised materials for the desired application. Secondly, a detailed review of the most recent data for application studies in medicine is provided, with particular focus given to their applications as macromolecular carriers in nanomedicine, including drug delivery, immunology and gene therapy, as well as their use as degradable scaffolds for tissue regeneration. This book should not only provide a valuable and critical summary for researchers already working in, or looking to enter the field, but also those contemplating the use of polyphosphazenes for their desired application.

Handbook of Polymers in Stone Conservation
Dr. Elisabetta Princi has wide experience regarding the use of polymers in the field of cultural heritage. She has led a research team at the University of Genoa (Genoa, Italy) for several years and has published widely on the scientific background to the conservation, preservation and restoration of stone and stone-based works of art. This handbook is dedicated to the conservation of stone materials by the application of polymers. A short introduction on polymer chemistry is given to highlight their characteristics and properties. After the physical and chemical attributes of stone are summarised, the problems related to its degradation are discussed. Finally, the properties of the various polymers of potential value for stone restoration are reviewed and classified by schemes and tables, and pointers for the future are suggested. This handbook will be of great interest to those who share the author's enthusiasm for stone artworks and her dedication to their restoration and conservation.

Learning from Leonardo: Decoding the Notebooks of a Genius

Learning from Leonardo: Decoding the Notebooks of a Genius by Fritjof Capra
English | 2013 | ISBN: 1609949897 | 384 pages | EPUB | 19 MB

Learning from Leonardo: Decoding the Notebooks of a Genius
eonardo da Vinci was a brilliant artist, scientist, engineer, mathematician, architect, inventor, writer, and even musician—the archetypal Renaissance man. But he was also, Fritjof Capra argues, a profoundly modern man. Not only did Leonardo invent the empirical scientific method over a century before Galileo and Francis Bacon, but Capra's decade-long study of Leonardo's fabled notebooks reveal him as a systems thinker centuries before the term was coined. He believed the key to truly understanding the world was in perceiving the connections between phenomena and the larger patterns formed by those relationships. This is precisely the kind of holistic approach the complex problems we face today demand. Capra describes seven defining characteristics of Leonardo da Vinci's genius and includes a list of over forty discoveries Leonardo made that weren't rediscovered until centuries later. Leonardo pioneered entire fields—fluid dynamics, theoretical botany, aerodynamics, embryology. Capra's overview of Leonardo's thought follows the organizational scheme Leonardo himself intended to use if he ever published his notebooks. So in a sense, this is Leonardo's science as he himself would have presented it. Leonardo da Vinci saw the world as a dynamic, integrated whole, so he always applied concepts from one area to illuminate problems in another. For example, his studies of the movement of water informed his ideas about how landscapes are shaped, how sap rises in plants, how air moves over a bird's wing, and how blood flows in the human body. His observations of nature enhanced his art, his drawings were integral to his scientific studies, and he brought art and science together in his extraordinarily beautiful and elegant mechanical and architectural designs. Obviously, we can't all be geniuses on the scale of Leonardo da Vinci. But by exploring the mind of the preeminent Renaissance genius, we can gain profound insights into how best to address the challenges of the 21st century.

Organizational Realities: Studies of Strategizing and Organizing By William H. Starbuck
Publisher: O U P 2006 | 656 Pages | ISBN: 0199288518 | PDF | 3 MB

Organizational Realities: Studies of Strategizing and Organizing
William H. Starbuck, is one of the most creative, productive and wide-ranging writers in management and organization studies. His work spans three decades and encompasses a whole variety of issues, yet it has never been collected together in one place. This book does just that-bringing together his most seminal writing, prefaced by a personal reflection on some of the themes and conclusions of that emerge from this, and the context I which they were written.
What emerges from this is a picture of organizations and their strategies that emphasizes the characteristics of real-life human beings: their idiosyncratic preferences, their distrust for each other, their struggle for dominance, their personal interests which don't always coincide with the interests of the organization, and the internal politicking and contests between interests groups that take place in organizations. Some chapters review research literature, some report empirical findings, some propose conceptual reformulation, and some offer advice to managers.
