Radar Imaging and Holography

The analysis of the current state and tendencies in radar development shows that novel methods of target viewing are based on a detailed study of echo signals and their informative characteristics. These methods are aimed at obtaining complete data on a target, with emphasis on revealing new steady parameters for their recognition. One way of raising the efficiency of radar technology is to improve available methods of radio vision, or imaging. Radio vision systems provide a high resolution, considerably extending the scope of target detection and recognition. This field of radar science and technology is very promising, because it paves the way from the classical detection of a point target to the imaging of a whole object.

Glossary of Biotechnology Terms

As a result of biotechnology becoming a highly controversial area, non-technical people, such as lobbyists and public relations people, have had to quickly become conversant about a topic that is highly technical. This glossary aims to provide concise definitions of terms for readers unfamiliar to the area and for persons familiar with biotechnology to learn how the terms are currently being used. The Glossary of Biotechnology Terms is a handy reference for those with little or no training in the biological and chemical sciences because it has been written in non-technical language, and serves to bring the reader up to date on biotechnical terminology so as to communicate effectively.

On cloning

In this highly controversial book, John Harris does a lot more than ask why we are so afraid of cloning. He presents a deft and informed defence of human cloning, carefully exposing the rhetorical and highly dubious arguments against it. He begins with an introduction to what a human clone is, before tackling some of the most common and frequently bizarre criticisms of cloning. Offering a brave and lucid insight into this ethical minefield, John Harris at last shows that far from ending the diversity of human life or creating a race of super-clones, cloning has the power to improve and heal human life.

Biomechanical Systems Technology

Biomechanics(fromAncientGreek:???"life" and ??a???? "mechanics") is the application of mechanical principles to living organisms, such as `humans,animals,plantsand the functional basic units of life, thecells.The word biomechanics developed during the early 1970s, describing the application of engineering mechanics to biological systems to solve medical problems by studying the function and structure of living organisms. Mechanics is a branch of physics that involves the analysis of forces. Therefore biomechanics is the use of these principles to study the anatomical and functional aspects.

Nanophotonics

Nanophotonics or Nano-optics is the study of the behavior of light on the nanometer scale. It is considered as a branch of optical engineering which deals with optics, or the interaction of light with particles or substances, at deeply subwavelength length scales. Technologies in the realm of nano-optics include near-field scanning optical microscopy (NSOM), photoassisted scanning tunnelling microscopy, and surface plasmon optics. Traditional microscopy makes use of diffractive elements to focus light tightly in order to increase resolution. But because of the diffraction limit (also known as the Rayleigh Criterion), propagating light may be focused to a spot with a minimum diameter of roughly half the wavelength of the light. Thus, even with diffraction-limited confocal microscopy, the maximum resolution obtainable is on the order of a couple of hundred nanometers. The scientific and industrial communities are becoming more interested in the characterization of materials and phenomena on the scale of a few nanometers, so alternative techniques must be utilized. Scanning Probe Microscopy (SPM) makes use of a probe, (usually either a tiny aperture or super-sharp tip), which either locally excites a sample or transmits local information from a sample to be collected and analyzed. The ability to fabricate devices in nanoscale that has been developed recently provided the catalyst for this area of study.

Biophotonics

It is now well established that all living systems emit a weak but permanent photon flux in the visible and ultraviolet range. This biophoton emission is correlated with many, if not all, biological and physiological functions. There are indications of a hitherto-overlooked information channel within the living system. Biophotons may trigger chemical reactivity in cells, growth control, differentiation and intercellular communication, i.e. biological rhythms. The basic experimental and theoretical framework as well as the technical problems and the wide field of applications in the biotechnical, biomedical engineering, engineering, medicine, pharmacology, environmental science and basic science fields are presented in this book. To promote the dialog and mutual penetration between biophoton research and photon technology is one of the important goals for the International Conference on Biophotons & Biophotonics 2003, and is developed and presented in Biophotonics: Optical Science and Engineering in the 21st Century.

Environmental Biotechnology

Biotechnology has come to play an increasingly important role in many aspects of everyday life. Once an expensive and largely unfamiliar option, it has now become a realistic alternative to many established approaches for manufacturing, land remediation, pollution control and waste management. The application of biologically-engineered solutions to environmental problems has become far more readily acceptable in principle and biotechnology, in general, more widely understood, but there remains some uncertainty amongst practitioners regarding how and where the microscopic, functional level fits into the macroscopic, practical applications. It is precisely this gap which the book sets out to fill.Environmental Biotechnology: theory and application takes a thematic and environmentally focused approach, and breaks away from traditional rigid divisions to provide a unified exposition of the subject and an accurate reflection of environmental biotechnology in current practice. Dividing the topic into logical strands covering pollution, waste and manufacturing, the book examines the potential for biotechnological interventions and current industrial practice, with the underpinning microbial techniques and methods described, in context, against this background. Each chapter is supported by located case studies from a range of industries and countries to provide readers with an overview of the range of applications for biotechnology.
