micro and nanotech

Micro and Nanotechnologies in Engineering Stem Cells and Tissue
by Murugan Ramalingam, Esmaiel Jabbari, Seeram Ramakrishna, and Ali Khademhosseini (2013)

Covers the latest developments by top researchers in the field. Topics include advances in material systems, techniques for controlling stem-cell functions, technologies to engineer bone regeneration, and the application of stem cells in treating heart disease.

nanometer frequency

Nanometer Frequency Synthesis Beyond the Phase-Locked Loop
By Liming Xiu (2012)

Introduces a novel way to look at frequency synthesis beyond the phase-locked loop, focusing on the clock signal in a time-based information-processing approach for nanochip design. Chapters cover the shortcomings of conventional techniques and present the concept of flying-adder frequency synthesis, a new technique for generating frequency. The book includes examples of using the concepts to build cheaper and faster systems.

negative refraction

Negative-Refraction Metamaterials: Fundamental Principles and Applications
by G.V. Eleftheriades and Keith G. Balmain (2005)

Provides the fundamental principles and applications of artificial materials that support the electromagnetic property of negative refraction. Several classes of materials and their applications are presented, including lenses, antennas, and radar systems. One chapter is devoted to plasmonic nanowire metamaterials.

CMOS biomicrosystems

CMOS Biomicrosystems: Where Electronics Meet Biology
by Krzysztof Iniewski (2011)

Presents systems that integrate microelectronics with fluidics, photonics, and mechanics. Focuses on emerging applications of microelectronic integration for future technologies, including biomedical nanotechnologies. The book is geared toward electrical, mechanical, material science, micro, and nano engineers.
