This book starts with an overview and introduction on the trends in nanofabrication and nanoimprint technology, followed by a detailed discussion on the design, fabrication, and evaluation of nanoimprint biosensors. The proto-model systems and some application examples of this sensor are also included in the chapters. The book will appeal to anyone in the field of nanotechnology, especially nanofabrication, nanophotonics, and nanobiology, or biosensor research.
The fourth edition of Water Resources Engineering follows in the tradition of the earlier editions of this text. The book covers a broad array of topics including hydrology, hydraulics, hydraulic structures, economy studies and planning. The text also includes brief discussions of the characteristics of the different fields of water resource engineering such as irrigation, hydropower and flood control.
Ist die Energieversorgung in Europa allein auf der Basis von Sonnen- und Windenergie möglich? Der Autor zeigt, dass dies eine reale Option ist. Er ermittelt den Kapazitätsbedarf für Speicherkraftwerke und stellt neue Typen von Pumpspeicherkraftwerken vor, mit deren Hilfe die Lücke zwischen wetterabhängiger Stromgewinnung und Stromverbrauch geschlossen werden könnte. Um die Stromversorgung sicherzustellen, so sein Plädoyer, müssten ferner Windkraftanlagen gesamtwirtschaftlich optimiert und alle Parameter geschickt aufeinander abgestimmt werden.
