Thermodynamics – Energy, Environment, Economy Set

Olivier Le Corre, Ecole des Mines de Nantes, France

Emergy, spelled with an ‘M’, is the embodied energy contained in a product, a good or a service.
This work is intended for economic and academic stakeholders, who are conscious of implementing or disseminating technical solutions which fall within the scope of a particular development that demonstrates consideration for our planet’s limited resources.
In many cases, specific emergy is considered...

Eric Lafontaine, French Government Defense Procurement and Technology Agency Marc Comet, University of Strasbourg, France

The recent introduction of the “nano” dimension to pyrotechnics has made it possible to develop a new family of highly reactive substances: nanothermites. These have a chemical composition that is comparable to that of thermites at submillimeter or micrometric granulometry, but with a morphology having a much increased degree of homogeneity.
Their reactivity can be specifically defined by playin...

Integrated Lasers on Silicon

Advanced Lasers Set

Charles Cornet and Yoan Léger, INSA Rennes, France Cédric Robert, INSA Toulouse, France

This book provides a comprehensive overview of the state-of-the-art lasers for photonic integration into silicon chips. The need for efficient laser sources on silicon is presented, motivated by the development of on-board/on-chip optical interconnects and the different integration schemes into microprocessors are discussed. The authors give descriptions of Group IV-based lasers, followed by a pre...

Enablers for Smart Cities

Edited by Amal El Fallah Seghrouchni, University of Pierre and Marie Curie, Paris, France Fuyuki Ishikawa, National Institute of Informatics (NII), Tokyo, Japan Laurent Hérault, CEA-LETI Hideyuki Tokuda, Keio University, Japan

Smart cities are a new vision for urban development. They integrate information and communication technology infrastructures – in the domains of artificial intelligence, distributed and cloud computing, and sensor networks – into a city, to facilitate quality of life for its citizens and sustainable growth. This book explores various concepts for the development of these new technologies (includ...

Live Cell Assays

From Research to Health and Regulatory Applications

Christophe Furger, Pierre et Marie Curie University, France

Cell assays include all methods of measurements on living cells. Confined for a long time to research laboratories, these emerging methods have, in recent years, found industrial applications that are increasingly varied and, from now on, regulatory.
Based on the recent explosion of knowledge in cell biology, the measurement of living cells represents a new class of industry-oriented research tes...

Brain–Computer Interfaces 1

Foundations and Methods

Edited by Maureen Clerc, Inria Sophia Antipolis, France Laurent Bougrain, University of Lorraine, France Fabien Lotte, Inria Bordeaux, France

Brain–computer interfaces (BCI) are devices which measure brain activity and translate it into messages or commands, thereby opening up many investigation and application possibilities.
This book provides keys for understanding and designing these multi-disciplinary interfaces, which require many fields of expertise such as neuroscience, statistics, informatics and psychology.
This first volume,...

Interactions on Digital Tablets in the Context of 3D Geometry Learning

Human-Machine Interaction Set – Volume 2

David Bertolo, Université de Lorraine, Metz, France

Over the last few years, multi-touch mobile devices have become increasingly common. However, very few applications in the context of 3D geometry learning can be found in app stores. Manipulating a 3D scene with a 2D device is the main difficulty of such applications.
Throughout this book, the author focuses on allowing young students to manipulate, observe and modify 3D scenes using new technol...
