Microelectrodes

Microelectrodes

Author: Kin Fong Lei Format: Hardback Release Date: 01/03/2014

Based on the mature development of microfabrication technology, micro-scale electrodes, i.e., microelectrodes, for the electrical observation of activities in micro-scale environment become realisable. This technique opened a new avenue for micro-scale observation and measurement besides the optical technique. This book presents the techniques, structures, and applications of using microelectrodes in a micro-scale environment. It covers a broad spectrum of topics and the state of the art techniques in the field. As such, the book is divided into four sections, comprising 11 chapters written by recognised experts from leading groups around the world. The reader will gain a unique perspective on the challenges and emerging opportunities in the technology of microelectrodes.

FREIraume

FREIraume

Format: eBook Release Date: 20/01/2014

Das Thema Freiraum ist ein vielschichtiges, das auf verschiedenen Ebenen gedacht, festgemacht und gelebt werden kann. Fr die Offene Jugendarbeit und ihr Selbstverstndnis spielt es in all seinen Facetten eine groe Rolle. Offene Jugendarbeit ermglicht Vielfalt und Experimentierfelder und ist gerade dadurch eine wichtige Sozialisierungsinstanz fr junge Menschen. Vor diesem Hintergrund hat bOJA - Bundesweites Netzwerk Offene Jugendarbeit - "e;FREIrume"e; zum Schwerpunkt erklrt und zahlreiche Aktivitten in diesem Kontext untersttzt. Eine bunte Zusammenschau der Ergebnisse, ergnzt durch wissenschaftliche, knstlerische und subjektive Blickwinkel, findet sich in diesem Buch. Ziel der Publikation ist es, das Thema und den abstrakten Begriff Freiraum ins Bewusstsein zu rufen und auf vielfltige Art zugnglich zu machen.

Representation in Scientific Practice Revisited

Representation in Scientific Practice Revisited

Author: Catelijne (National University of Singapore) Coopmans Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 03/01/2014

A fresh approach to visualization practices in the sciences that considers novel forms of imaging technology and draws on recent theoretical perspectives on representation. Representation in Scientific Practice, published by the MIT Press in 1990, helped coalesce a long-standing interest in scientific visualization among historians, philosophers, and sociologists of science and remains a touchstone for current investigations in science and technology studies. This volume revisits the topic, taking into account both the changing conceptual landscape of STS and the emergence of new imaging technologies in scientific practice. It offers cutting-edge research on a broad array of fields that study information as well as short reflections on the evolution of the field by leading scholars, including some of the contributors to the 1990 volume. The essays consider the ways in which viewing experiences are crafted in the digital era; the embodied nature of work with digital technologies; the constitutive role of materials and technologies-from chalkboards to brain scans-in the production of new scientific knowledge; the metaphors and images mobilized by communities of practice; and the status and significance of scientific imagery in professional and popular culture. Contributors Morana Alac, Michael Barany, Anne Beaulieu, Annamaria Carusi, Catelijne Coopmans, Lorraine Daston, Sarah de Rijcke, Joseph Dumit, Emma Frow, Yann Giraud, Aud Sissel Hoel, Martin Kemp, Bruno Latour, John Law, Michael Lynch, Donald MacKenzie, Cyrus Mody, Natasha Myers, Rachel Prentice, Arie Rip, Martin Ruivenkamp, Lucy Suchman, Janet Vertesi, Steve Woolgar

Handbook of Laboratory Animal Science, Volume III

Handbook of Laboratory Animal Science, Volume III

Author: Jann Hau Format: Hardback Release Date: 26/12/2013

While replacing and reducing the use of laboratory animals are integral parts of the 3Rs-replace, reduce, refine-which form the cornerstones of laboratory animal science, biomedical research involving animals remains absolutely essential for the advancement of the medical, veterinary, agricultural, and biological sciences. Building upon the bestselling previous edition, the Handbook of Laboratory Animal Science, Volume III, Third Edition: Animal Models complements volumes I and II of the third edition by completing the task of providing a comprehensive overview of animal models in all biomedical disciplines. The three Rs have been integrated throughout this handbook to promote efficient and humane experimental work with animals. Written by international experts, each chapter focuses on an important subdiscipline of laboratory animal science and can be used as a stand-alone text. This volume contains new chapters for six additional disease animal models: spinal cord injury, cardiovascular diseases, sudden infant death syndrome, developmental disorders, eye diseases, and human cancer. It also presents a new chapter on applying reduction and refinement to animal models. This handbook can be used for undergraduate and postgraduate laboratory animal science courses, and as a handbook for scientists who work with animals in their research, for university veterinarians, for regulators, and for other specialists in laboratory animal science.

Vacuum Microbalance Techniques

Vacuum Microbalance Techniques

Author: A. W. Czanderna Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 13/12/2013

This volume contains the proceedings of the Eighth Conference on Vacuum Microbalance Techniques held at Wakefield, Massachusetts on June 12 and 13, 1969. The tenth anniversary of the first confer ence will be registered as this volume passes through the typeset ting and proofreading stages. The eight volumes that have spawned from this continuing series of conferences now contain a total of 125 papers. Thus, these volumes serve as a major repository of the world's literature on vacuum microbalance techniques. The Ninth and Tenth Conferences will be held in West Germany in June 1970 and in Texas in 1971. Each of the eight meetings has served as a forum where new developments in this rapidly advancing field can be presented and discussed constructively within a conference atmosphere of cordial informality. The interaction of the participants at the conferences has led to the first treatise on ultra mlcrogravtmetry;' edited by S. P. Wolsky and E. J. Zdanuk, with most of the fourteen chapters written by steady contributors to the volumes on Vacuum Micro balance Techniques. The number of research investigations and published works in which a vacuum microbalance is utilized con tinues to expandr apldly. f This is a direct result of several types of automatic recording balances that are now available commercial ly. 3 The Eighth Conference was held to bring together again re search scientists and engineers who exploit the measurement of mass as a means of studying physical and chemical phenomena.

Scientific Inference

Scientific Inference

Author: Simon (University of Leicester) Vaughan Format: Hardback Release Date: 19/09/2013

Providing the knowledge and practical experience to begin analysing scientific data, this book is ideal for physical sciences students wishing to improve their data handling skills. The book focuses on explaining and developing the practice and understanding of basic statistical analysis, concentrating on a few core ideas, such as the visual display of information, modelling using the likelihood function, and simulating random data. Key concepts are developed through a combination of graphical explanations, worked examples, example computer code and case studies using real data. Students will develop an understanding of the ideas behind statistical methods and gain experience in applying them in practice. Further resources are available at www.cambridge.org/9781107607590, including data files for the case studies so students can practise analysing data, and exercises to test students' understanding.

Fluorophores

Author: Shota Watanabe Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 01/09/2013

Fluorophores are chemical compounds that can re-emit light upon light excitation and typically contain several combined aromatic groups, or plane or cyclic molecules with several bonds. In this book, the authors present current research in the study of the characteristics, synthesis, and applications of fluorophores. Topics include the application of fluorescent molecular probes in cell biology; fluorescent probes based on upconverting lanthanide nanostructures; aromatic hydrazine-based fluorophores synthesis, spectroscopy and bioapplications; and the concentration dependence of humic acid fluorescence intensity.
