New title for Electrical and Electronics Engineering

The wonder of nanotechnology : quantum optoelectronic devices and applications
By Esaki, Reona.
TK8304.W872, Lee Wee Nam Library

Synopsis:
This book edited by Manijeh Razeghi, Leo Esaki, and Klaus von Klitzing focuses on the application of nanotechnology to modern semiconductor optoelectronic devices. Electrons, photons, and even thermal properties can all be engineered at the nanolevel. The 2D quantum well, possibly the simplest aspect of nanotechnology, has dramatically enhanced the efficiency and versatility of electronic and optoelectronic devices. While this area alone is fascinating, nanotechnology has now progressed to 1D (quantum wire) and 0D (quantum dot) systems that exhibit remarkable and sometimes unexpected behaviors. With these components serving as the modern engineer’s building blocks, it is a brave new world we live in, with endless possibilities for new technology and scientific discovery.

Nanotechnology in the food, beverage and nutraceutical industries

Title: Nanotechnology in the food, beverage and nutraceutical industries.
Author:  Huang, Qingrong.
Call number: TP248.65.F66N186a
Availability:  Click here

Synopsis:
Food scientists, chemical engineers, materials scientists, and other contributors describe how food and quasi-drug products are being altered or created by processes that include manipulating matter at the molecular, nanometer level. The topics discussed include potential health risks of nanoparticles, regulatory frameworks for food nanotechnologies, atomic force microscopy and related tools for imaging foods and beverages at the nanometer scale, improving food sensory and nutritional quality through nanostructure engineering, principles of associated colloids as delivery systems and applications in the food and nutraceutical industries, nanotechnology-based approaches for the rapid detection of chemical and biological contaminants in foods, the technology and potential applications of milk nanotubes, and membranes engineered at the nanometer and micrometer scales.

Nanodiamonds, pieces of carbon less than ten-thousandths the diameter of a human hair, have been found to help loosen crystallized fat from surfaces in a project led by research chemists at the University of Warwick that transforms the ability of washing powders to shift dirt in eco friendly low temperature laundry cycles.[As taken from www.insciences.org]
