Title:Handbook of Nano-Optics and Nanophotonics [electronic resource]
Author(s): Motoichi Ohtsu
Date:2013
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:In the 1990s, optical technology and photonics industry developed fast, but further progress became difficult due to a fundamental limit of light known as the diffraction limit. This limit could be overcome using the noveltechnology of nano-optics or nanophotonics in which the size of the electromagnetic field is decreased down to the nanoscale and is used as a carrier for signal transmission, processing, and fabrication. Such a decrease beyond thediffraction limit is possible by using optical near-f ields. The true nature of nano-optics and nanophotonics involves not only their abilities to meet the above requirements but also their abilities to realize qualitative innovationsin photonic devices, fabrication techniques, energy conversion and informat ion processing systems. The objective of this work is to review the innovations of optical science and technology by nano-optics and nanophotonics. While inconventional optical science and technology, light and matter are discussed separately, in nano-opt ics and nanophotonics, light and matter have to be regarded as being coupled to each other, and the energy flow between nanoparticles isbidirectional. This means that nano-optics and nanophotonics have to be regarded as a technology fusing optical fields and matter. This unique work reviews and covers the most recent topics of nano-optics, applications to deviceoperations, fabrication techniques, energy conversion, information processing, architectures and algorithms. Each chapter is written by the leadin g scientists in the relevant field. Thus, this work will provide high-quality scientificand technical information to scientists, engineers, and graduate students who are and will be engaged in R&D of nano-optics and nanophotonics. Especially, the topics t o be covered by this work will be popularly used by the engineers inthe rapidly growing market of the optical energy conversion

Title:Morphogenetic Engineering [electronic resource] : Toward Programmable Complex Systems

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Generally, spontaneous pattern formation phenomena are random and repetitive, whereas elaborate devices are the deterministic product of human design. Yet, biological organisms and collective insect constructions are exceptionalexamples of complex sy stems that are both self-organized and architectural. This book is the first initiative of its kind toward establishing a new field of research, Morphogenetic Engineering, to explore the modeling andimplementation of self-architecturing systems. Particul ar emphasis is placed on the programmability and computational abilities of self-organization, properties that are often underappreciated in complex systems sciencewhile,conversely, the benefits of self-organization are often underappreciated in engineeri ng methodologies. Altogether, the aim of this work is to provide a framework for and examples of a larger class of self-architecturingsystems, while addressing fundamental questions such as > How do biological organisms carry out morphogenetic tasks so reliably? > Can we extrapolate their self-formation capabilities to engineered systems? > Can physical systems beendowed with information (or informational systems be embedded in physics) so as to create autonomous morphologies and functions? > What are t he core principles and best practices for the design and engineering of such morphogeneticsystems? The intended audience consists of researchers and graduate students who are working on, starting to work on, or interested in programmable self-organizing s ystems in a wide range of scientific fields, including computerscience, robotics, bioengineering, control engineering, physics, theoretical biology, mathematics, and many others

Title:Biophysics of DNA-Protein Interactions [electronic resource] : From Single Molecules to Biological Systems
Author(s): Mark C Williams
L. James Maher
Date:2011
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book presents a concise overview of current research on the biophysics of DNA-protein interactions. A wide range of new and classical methods are presented by authors investigating physical mechanisms by which proteinsinteract with DNA. For exam ple, several chapters address the mechanisms by which proteins search for and recognize specific binding sites on DNA, a process critical for cellular function. Single molecule methods such as forcespectroscopy as well as fluorescence imaging and tracking are described in these chapters as well as other parts of the book that address the dynamics of protein-DNA interactions. Other important topics include the mechanisms by whichproteins engage DNA sequences and/or alter DNA structure. These simple but imp ortant model interactions are then placed in the broader biological context with discussion of larger protein-DNA complexes . Topics include replicationforks, recombination complexes, DNA repair interactions, and ultimately, methods to understand the chro matin context of the cell nucleus. This book will be of interest to readers who wish to explore current biophysical approaches toDNA-protein interactions across multiple levels of biological complexity

Title:Auditory and Visual Sensations [electronic resource]
Author(s): Yoichi Ando
Date:2010
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Professor Yoichi Ando, acoustic architectural designer of the Kirishima International Concert Hall in Japan, presents a comprehensive rational-scientific approach to designing performance spaces. His theory is based on systematicpsychoacoustical obse rvations of spatial hearing and listener preferences, whose neuronal correlates are observed in the neurophysiology of the human brain. A correlation-based model of neuronal signal processing in the centralauditory system is proposed in which temporal sen sations (pitch, timbre, loudness, duration) are represented by an internal autocorrelation representation, and spatial sensations (sound location, size, diffuseness related toenvelopment) are represented by an internal interaural crosscorrelation function . Together these two internal central auditory representations account for the basic auditory qualities that are relevant for listening to music and speechin indoor performance spaces. Observed psychological and neurophysiological commonalities between au ditory and visual sensations and preference patterns are presented and discussed. This book thus spans the disciplines of physics,acoustics, psychology, neurophysiology, and music production, thereby blending science, engineering, and art
