Learning Bio-Micro-Nanotechnology by Mel I. Mendelson

By Mel I. Mendelson

Learning Bio-Micro-Nanotechnology is a primer on micro/nanotechnology that teaches the vocabulary, primary innovations, and functions of micro/nanotechnology in biology, chemistry, physics, engineering, electronics, pcs, biomedicine, microscopy, ethics, and hazards to humankind. It presents an advent into the small international with a low fog index, emphasizing the thoughts utilizing analogies and illustrations to simplify the non-observables.

The chapters have many "thinking workouts" and summaries with references on the finish of every bankruptcy. The questions on the finish are divided into Bloom’s taxonomy of studying talents and likewise contain workforce workouts and techniques to evaluate studying. there are numerous calculations utilizing dimensional research based on first ideas, however the math is purposely saved at a low point and is used as a method of figuring out the innovations. The appendices supply a math assessment and a word list of terms.

Carefully designed as an easy-to-read textbook and a pragmatic reference, this booklet emphasizes studying micro/nanotechnology vocabulary, strategies, and purposes from first ideas and from a multi-disciplinary perspective. This makes it appropriate for one- and two-semester classes in addition to a reference for pros within the field.

Example text

In order to learn small technology, a steady stream of relevant definitions, illustrations, and exercises will be presented. This chapter will also summarize micro/nanotechnology and show where it will be discussed in the future chapters. 5 What Is “Small Technology”? 8 Applications. 2 BIT OF TECHNOLOGY HISTORY We will discuss a brief history on the evolution of technology that has led up to nanotechnology. Technology has progressed through the ages by the discoveries and inventions of mankind (and womankind).

4 Is Smaller Better? ” It seems everybody uses “nano” as an adjective for small. ” In another 2004 movie, What the Bleep Do We Know!? nano-quantum mechanics is related to human thought and biological functions. In 2005, Apple launched its iPod nano-music library. Also in 2005, Nano-Tex• used “nano-size” coatings on the fabrics of shirts to resist stains and wrinkles. In 2007, wireless service has been advertised as “living in the nano-moment” [Sprint 2007]. 5 m width). It was also small in weight (635 kg), and small in price (∼$2000) [Bajaj 2010].

Examples of sizes in this range include cells (Chapter 2), capillary blood vessels (Chapter 5), bacteria, and microelectromechanical devices (Chapter 8). 3 Nanoscopic World The nanoscopic world covers the size range from 1 to 100 nm. , DNA, proteins, and nanotubes), viruses, and transistors. In order to observe these features, we will need an electron microscope or atomic force microscope. We will also discuss these microscopes in Chapter 6. 5 reiterates how molecules are small in size but large in number.
