Dispersion Engineering for Integrated Nanophotonics
FOCUS Series in Waves
Dispersion engineering in regular and graded photonic crystals to promote anomalous refraction effects are studied by the authors of this book, from the basic concepts to experimental demonstration via nanofabrication considerations. Self-collimation, ultra- and negative refraction, second harmonic generation, mirage and invisibility effects, which lead to an unprecedented control of light propaga...
From Milliscale to Nanoscale
A promising long-term evolution of surgery relies on intracorporeal microrobotics. This book reviews the principles and scientific challenges that have to be tackled to design and control robots able to manipulate objects within the body whose dimensions range from the micrometer scale up to the millimeter scale.
Three orders of magnitude are considered by the authors, justified by the class of p...
Time–Frequency Domain for Segmentation and Classification of Non-stationary Signals
The Stockwell Transform Applied on Bio-signals and Electric Signals
Non-stationary signals are generally found in nature and any information concerning such signals cannot easily be described or predicted. The extraction, analysis and classification of these signals are complicated by different types of noise. As any false results could possibly have dire consequences, the robustness of tools used for these purposes in certain fields is of course vital.
Medical Imaging Based on Magnetic Fields and Ultrasounds
