image of Nano-Electromagnetic Communication at Terahertz and Optical Frequencies: Principles and Applications
  • Nano-Electromagnetic Communication at Terahertz and Optical Frequencies: Principles and Applications
  • Recent advancements in carbon and molecular electronics have opened the door to a new generation of electronic nanoscale components. This book outlines the basic principles of electromagnetic-based communication at this nanoscale using terahertz and optical frequencies with a focus on theoretical principles and applications. It answers the questions: How can nano-devices communicate with each other by applying electromagnetic techniques? Do conventional communication and networking schemes and principles still apply? How feasible is it to deploy such networks with various applications? Topics covered include an introduction to nano-communication; fundamentals and applications of nano-electromagnetic communications; simulation and experimental platforms for nano-electromagnetic communication networks; terahertz antenna design for wearable applications; terahertz application in food contamination detection; channel modelling for electromagnetic nano-communication; modulation, coding and synchronization techniques for nano-electromagnetic communications in the terahertz band; routing protocols for nano-electromagnetic communication networks; error control mechanisms for nano-electromagnetic communication networks; and conclusion and future outlook.

image of Wind Energy Modeling and Simulation - Volume 1: Atmosphere and Plant
  • Wind Energy Modeling and Simulation - Volume 1: Atmosphere and Plant
  • In order to optimise the yield of wind power from existing and future wind plants, the entire breadth of the system of a plant, from the wind field to the turbine components, needs to be modelled in the design process. The modelling and simulation approaches used in each subsystem as well as the system-wide solution methods to optimize across subsystem boundaries are described in this reference. Chapters are written by technical experts in each field, describing the current state of the art in modelling and simulation for wind plant design. This comprehensive, two-volume research reference will provide long-lasting insight into the methods that will need to be developed for the technology to advance into its next generation. Volume 1 covers the computing challenges in full turbine modelling, then discusses bridging scales in the atmosphere and turbulence modelling, wind forecasting, wind plant flow, and plant level controller design.

image of Security and Privacy of Electronic Healthcare Records: Concepts, paradigms and solutions
  • Security and Privacy of Electronic Healthcare Records: Concepts, paradigms and solutions
  • Hospitals, medical practices and healthcare organizations are implementing new technologies at breakneck speed. Yet privacy and security considerations are often an afterthought, putting healthcare organizations at risk of data security and privacy issues, fines, damage to their reputations, with serious potential consequences for the patients. Electronic Health Record systems (EHRs) consist of clinical notes, patient listings, lab results, imaging results and screening tests. EHRs are growing in complexity over time and requiring increasing amounts of data storage. With the development of the IoT, the Cloud and Smart Cities frameworks, new privacy and security methods are being pursued to secure healthcare-based systems and platforms. Presenting a detailed framework as well as comparative case studies for security protection, data integrity, privacy preservation, scalability, and healthcare legislation, this edited volume covers state of the art research and addresses privacy and security methods and technologies for EHRs.

image of Microstrip and Printed Antenna Design
  • Microstrip and Printed Antenna Design
  • This thoroughly updated third edition of this popular book covers all types of printed microstrip antenna design, from rectangular to circular, broadband and dual band, and millimeter wave microstrip antenna to microstrip arrays. The book features new analysis of rectangular and circular microstrip antenna efficiency, and surface wave phenomena. Rectangular microstrip antenna cross polarization analysis and mitigation is expanded upon. Microstrip antenna array geometry options have been added to the text. The design of Vivaldi antennas has been revised and updated based on recent analysis. A chapter has been added which addresses design considerations for millimeter wave microstrip antennas and arrays. Sections addressing the design of shorted annular, patch-ring, corporate fed OMA, stripline series slot, inverted F, RFID Loop Coupler, CPW monopole, and characteristic mode antennas have been added. The appendices have been enlarged, and address PIM, efficiency computation, twin strip and parallel plate transmission line, the history of the decibel, return loss and reflection loss, new impedance matching methods, as well as a new appendix on baluns for printed antennas. Written with commercial applications in mind and aimed at practicing engineers, this book covers printed antennas and their design from the perspective of a seasoned consulting engineer who has worked many years in the field and has implemented all design concepts and technologies featured in the book and is essential reading for antenna designers and engineers.

image of Characterisation and Control of Defects in Semiconductors
  • Characterisation and Control of Defects in Semiconductors
  • Characterisation and Control of Defects in Semiconductors Understanding the formation and introduction mechanisms of defects in semiconductors is essential to understanding their properties. Although many defect-related problems have been identified and solved over the past 60 years of semiconductor research, the quest for faster, cheaper, lower power, and new kinds of electronics generates an ongoing need for new materials and properties, and so creates new defect-related challenges. This book provides an up-to-date review of the experimental and theoretical methods used for studying defects in semiconductors, focussing on the most recent developments in the methods. These developments largely stem from the requirements of new materials - such as nitrides, the plethora of oxide semiconductors, and 2-D semiconductors - whose physical characteristics and manufacturing challenges are much more complex than in conventional Si/Ge or GaAs. Each chapter addresses both the identification and quantification of the defects and their characteristics, and goes on to suggest routes for controlling the defects and hence the semiconductor properties. The book provides valuable information and solutions for scientists and engineers working with semiconductors and their applications in electronics.

  • VLSI and Post-CMOS Electronics. Volume 1: Design, modelling and simulation
  • VLSI, or Very-Large-Scale-Integration, is the practice of combining billions of transistors to create an integrated circuit. At present, VLSI circuits are realised using CMOS technology. However, the demand for ever smaller, more efficient circuits is now pushing the limits of CMOS. Post-CMOS refers to the possible future digital logic technologies beyond the CMOS scaling limits. This 2-volume set addresses the current state of the art in VLSI technologies and presents potential options for post-CMOS processes. VLSI and Post-CMOS Electronics is a useful reference guide for researchers, engineers and advanced students working in the area of design and modelling of VLSI and post-CMOS devices and their circuits. Volume 1 focuses on design, modelling and simulation, including applications in low voltage and low power VLSI, and post-CMOS devices and circuits. Volume 2 addresses a wide range of devices, circuits and interconnects.
