Ultra Low Power Bioelectronics

Fundamentals, Biomedical Applications, and Bio-Inspired Systems

Ultra Low Power Bioelectronics

This book provides, for the first time, a broad and deep treatment of the fields of both ultra low power electronics and bioelectronics. It discusses fundamental principles and circuits for ultra low power electronic design and their applications in biomedical systems. It also discusses how ultra energy efficient cellular and neural systems in biology can inspire revolutionary low power architectures in mixed-signal and RF electronics. The book presents a unique, unifying view of ultra low power analog and digital electronics and emphasizes the use of the ultra energy efficient subthreshold regime of transistor operation in both. Chapters on batteries, energy harvesting, and the future of energy provide an understanding of fundamental relationships between energy use and energy generation at small scales and at large scales. A wealth of insights and examples from brain implants, cochlear implants, bio-molecular sensing, cardiac devices, and bio-inspired systems make the book useful and engaging for students and practicing engineers.

Surface Generation in Ultra-precision Diamond Turning

Modelling and Practices

Surface Generation in Ultra-precision Diamond Turning

An ‘Engineering Research Series’ title. One of the remarkable achievements of modern manufacturing techniques is the ability to achieve nano-metre surface finishes. Ultraprecision machining based on single-point diamond turning (SPDT) is a very important technique in the manufacture of high-precision components where surface finish is critical. Complex optical surfaces, for example, can be produced without the need for post-machining polishing. This book focuses on the aspect of modelling nano-surface generation in ultra precision SPDT. Potential industrial applications in the prediction of surface quality, the process optimization, and precision mould manufacturing are also studies. The essential differences between single-point diamond turning and conventional machining are described. The history and technology of single-point diamond turning are presented and single chapters emphasize the related metrology and cutting mechanics. Important aspects of surface generation are also discussed. Features of the text are the sound approach, systematic mathematical modelling, and computer-aided simulation of surface generation in the development of surfaces exhibiting nano-surface qualities. TOPICS COVERED INCLUDE: Fundamentals of ultra-precision diamond turning technology Cutting mechanics and analysis of microcutting force variation Mechanisms of surface generation Characterization and modelling of nano-surface generation Computer-aided simulation of nano-surface generation Diamond turning of aspheric optics. Based upon the extensive experience of the authors Surface Generation in Ultra-precision Diamond Turning: Modelling and Practices will be of interest to engineers, scientists, and postgraduate students.
