Download Scanning Probe Microscopy by Nikodem Tomczak, Kuan Eng Johnson Goh PDF

By Nikodem Tomczak, Kuan Eng Johnson Goh

Scanning Probe Microscopy (SPM) is the permitting instrument for nano(bio)technology, which has opened new vistas in lots of interdisciplinary study parts. Concomitant with the advancements in SPM instrumentation and methods are new and formerly unthought-of possibilities in fabrics nanofabrication and characterisation. specifically, the advancements in addressing and manipulating topic on the point of unmarried atoms or molecules, and stories of organic fabrics (e.g. dwell cells, or cellphone membranes) bring about new and intriguing discoveries. The emerging value of SPM calls for a concise remedy within the kind of a ebook that is obtainable to interdisciplinary practitioners. This ebook highlights fresh advances within the box of SPM with enough intensity and breadth to supply an intellectually stimulating assessment of the present cutting-edge. The e-book relies on a collection of conscientiously chosen unique works from popular participants on issues that diversity from atom expertise, scanning tunneling spectroscopy of self-assembled nanostructures, SPM probe fabrication, scanning strength microscopy purposes in biology and fabrics technological know-how all the way down to the only molecule point, novel scanning probe recommendations, and nanolithography. the range of themes underlines the powerful interdisciplinary personality of SPM comparable learn and the mixed services of the members provides us a distinct chance to debate attainable destiny traits in SPM comparable learn. This makes the publication now not purely a set of already released fabric yet an enlightening perception into leading edge examine and international SPM study developments.

Download Thing Knowledge: A Philosophy of Scientific Instruments by Davis Baird PDF

By Davis Baird

Western philosophers have typically targeting thought because the potential for expressing wisdom a couple of number of phenomena. This soaking up e-book demanding situations this basic proposal through exhibiting how items themselves, in particular clinical tools, can exhibit wisdom. As he considers quite a few fascinating examples, Davis Baird offers us the instruments to ''read'' the fabric items of technological know-how and know-how and to appreciate their position in tradition. creating a provocative and unique problem to our perception of data itself, factor wisdom calls for that we take a brand new examine theories of technological know-how and know-how, wisdom, development, and alter. Baird considers a variety of tools, together with Faraday's first electrical motor, eighteenth-century mechanical versions of the sun procedure, the cyclotron, a variety of tools built by way of analytical chemists among 1930 and 1960, spectrometers, and extra. Illustrations: 23 b/w pictures, 24 line illustrations, 2 tables

Download Make: Technology on Your Time Volume 23 by Mark Frauenfelder PDF

By Mark Frauenfelder

Arthur C. Clarke famously wrote in 1961, "Any sufficiently complicated know-how is indistinguishable from magic." within the subsequent factor of MAKE (Vol. 23) we are going to convey you the expertise adequate to make issues that appear like magic. during this certain devices factor, dedicated to machines that do pleasant and remarkable issues, we are going to allow you to make the next: a magic suitcase that comprises an lively soothsayer, an electromagnetic device that shoots aluminum earrings, a smart wood apparatus mechanism invented via Renaissance gadgetmaster Leonardo Da Vinci, a miniature digital Whack-a-Mole arcade video game, a tiny yet strong audio amplifier, and a creepy mechanical field that is in basic terms function is to show itself off. All this and masses, even more in MAKE Vol. 23. MAKE is still a pacesetter within the tech DIY stream as a result of its uncanny intuition to interact the interest, power, and keenness of the growing to be neighborhood of Makers -- DIY lovers, hobbyist engineers/designers, and others who prefer to tweak, disassemble, recreate, and invent cool new makes use of for expertise in remarkable tasks they adopt of their backyards, basements, and garages.

Download Zodiac Calendars in the Dead Sea Scrolls and Their by Helen R Jacobus PDF

By Helen R Jacobus

The traditional mathematical foundation of the Aramaic calendars within the useless Sea Scrolls is analysed during this research. Helen R. Jacobus re-examines an Aramaic zodiac calendar with a thunder divination textual content (4Q318) and the calendar from the Aramaic Astronomical publication (4Q208 - 4Q209), all from Qumran. Jacobus demonstrates that 4Q318 is an ancestor of the Jewish calendar at the present time and that it is helping us to appreciate 4Q208 - 4Q209. She argues that those calendars have been taught in antiquity as angelic wisdom defined in 1 Enoch and the Book of Jubilees. The learn additionally encompasses Babylonian, Hellenistic, Byzantine astronomy and astrology, and classical and Jewish writings. eventually, a medieval Hebrew zodiac calendar relating to 4Q318 with an astrological textual content is released the following for the 1st time.
