  • Soft-Material Robotics

    The last decade has witnessed an increasing interest in the more active use of soft materials in robotic systems. Having a soft body like the ones in biological systems can potentially provide a robot with superior capabilities. For example, soft body can help the robots to adaptively navigate through small openings, softness can prevent injuries in human-robot interaction, while deformable body can also store and release energy, which may lead to energy effciency in locomotion tasks. By building robotic systems with soft materials, we can realize systems that are safer, cheaper, and more adaptable than the level that conventional rigid-material robots can achieve. Soft- Material Robotics introduces the fundamental aspects of this vibrant research topic from history, modelling, control, and system integration. This content sets it apart from previous review efforts that have focused on presenting individual case studies.

  • Chapter 1 - Ceramics, Raw Materials, and Processing

    The art and science of glass engineering, specifically applied to automotive projects, are not at all commonplace. Although windshields, side and backlites seem to be obvious parts of any car, truck, or bus, designing, sourcing, and manufacturing them are unique challenges. From the business perspective, cost control makes the choice of the ideal supplier a vital decision, greatly impacting availability and production. From the technical standpoint, the most creative designs can be rendered impractical due to regulations, lack of economies of scale, or convoluted logistics. Glass Engineering: Design Solutions for Automotive Applications tackles all these variables using a no- nonsense, step-by-step approach. Written by Lyn R. Zbinden, a mechanical engineer and glass specialist, this book narrows the gap between the reader and a technical subject by using language that is easy to understand, a good variety of examples, and a series of invaluable reference design tables. With a career spanning over 30 years in the automotive industry, Lyn R. Zbinden breaks down complex concepts into “knowledge bites,” building up a solid base that both students and practitioners can profit from, and use on a regular basis, for years to come. Glass Engineering: Design Solutions for Automotive Applications addresses the theme of glass from the manufacturing stage to the design, installation, and warranty aspects. It also flags, along the way, the pitfalls and the important questions to ask. More importantly, it provides the reader with practical ways to solve the not-so-obvious problems associated with the use of automotive glass. Developed with the goal to offer effective training on the subject, this book is a must-have for those just starting to get acquainted with the world of automotive glass applications as well as those looking for the ultimate source of practical knowledge in this field.

  • Multimedia Information Retrieval

    At its very core multimedia information retrieval means the process of searching for and finding multimedia documents; the corresponding research field is concerned with building the best possible multimedia search engines. The intriguing bit here is that the query itself can be a multimedia excerpt: For example, when you walk around in an unknown place and stumble across an interesting landmark, would it not be great if you could just take a picture with your mobile phone and send it to a service that finds a similar picture in a database and tells you more about the building -- and about its significance, for that matter? This book goes further by examining the full matrix of a variety of query modes versus document types. How do you retrieve a music piece by humming? What if you want to find news video clips on forest fires using a still image? The text discusses underlying techniques and common approaches to facilitate multimedia search engines from metadata driven retrieval, via piggy-back text retrieval where automated processes create text surrogates for multimedia, automated image annotation and content-based retrieval. The latter is studied in great depth looking at features and distances, and how to effectively combine them for efficient retrieval, to a point where the readers have the ingredients and recipe in their hands for building their own multimedia search engines. Supporting users in their resource discovery mission when hunting for multimedia material is not a technological indexing problem alone. We look at interactive ways of engaging with repositories through browsing and relevance feedback, roping in geographical context, and providing visual summaries for videos. The book concludes with an overview of state-of-the-art research projects in the area of multimedia information retrieval, which gives an indication of the research and development trends and, thereby, a glimpse of the future world.

  • An Introduction to Logic Circuit Testing

    An Introduction to Logic Circuit Testing provides a detailed coverage of techniques for test generation and testable design of digital electronic circuits/systems. The material covered in the book should be sufficient for a course, or part of a course, in digital circuit testing for senior-level undergraduate and first-year graduate students in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. The book will also be a valuable resource for engineers working in the industry. This book has four chapters. Chapter 1 deals with various types of faults that may occur in very large scale integration (VLSI)-based digital circuits. Chapter 2 introduces the major concepts of all test generation techniques such as redundancy, fault coverage, sensitization, and backtracking. Chapter 3 introduces the key concepts of testability, followed by some ad hoc design-for-testability rules that can be used to enhance testability of combinational circuits. Chapter 4 deals with test generation and response evaluation techniques used in BIST (built-in self- test) schemes for VLSI chips.

  • Will Composite Nanomaterials Replace Piezoelectric Thin Films for Energy Transduction Applications?

    Semiconducting piezoelectric nanowires (NWs) show significant potential for application in electronic and electromechanical sensors and energy harvesters. In particular, these nanostructures can be used to build composite piezoelectric materials that could offer several advantages when integrated vertically. First, NWs of various lengths opens the possibility to fabricate composite layers thicker than standard thin films (<4 µm). Second, low‐temperature fabrication process make this technology compatible with CMOS devices and with different substrates, such as Si, polymers, plastics, metal foils, and even paper. Third, properties such as piezoelectricity, flexibility, and dielectric constant can be improved in NWs, thereby improving the performance of NW‐containing composite materials. Finally, FEM simulations show that composites can provide better performance compared to piezoelectric thin films of the same thickness, and that performance can be improved by operating in compression or flexion modes by the right choice of the dielectric matrix and NW density.

  • Modern Photon Detectors1

    To select or design a detector material, one must consider many material properties. The bandgap and absorption length determine whether the material will in fact detect photons. It is convenient to classify candidate materials into one of five groups: single chemical elements, doped elements, chemical compounds, alloys, and engineered materials. For some of the materials this chapter provides the energy gap, the corresponding cutoff wavelength, and the approximate maximum operating temperature. Blocked impurity band (BIB) detectors offer significant advantages over simple extrinsic doped photoconductors for many applications. The lattice‐engineered materials are used along with natural semiconductors to make variants of the classical photoconductive (PC) and photovoltaic (PV) structures, and it is difficult (and probably counterproductive) to distinguish between devices based primarily on these lattice‐engineered materials and the devices built using the “natural” materials.

  • Evasiveness of Graph Properties and Topological Fixed-Point Theorems

    Evasiveness of Graph Properties and Topological Fixed-Point Theorems addresses a fascinating topic that lies at the interface between mathematics and theoretical computer science. There have been several interesting research papers that use topological methods to prove lower bounds on the complexity of graph properties. The goal of this text is to offer an integrated version of the underlying proofs in this body of research. While there are a number of very good expositions available on topological methods in decision-tree complexity, they all refer to other sources for the proofs of some topological results. This work is the first that provides a completely self-contained account. Evasiveness of Graph Properties and Topological Fixed-Point Theorems begins by laying out the important foundational material and builds up to the more complex results at a steady pace. The capstone results, which consist of three lower bounds on the complexity of graph properties, appear in the final part of the text. The reader is not assumed to have any prior background in algebraic topology as all constructions from that subject are developed from scratch. The only prerequisite is a high level of comfort with discrete mathematics and linear algebra.

  • Resistive Random Access Memory (RRAM)

    RRAM technology has made significant progress in the past decade as a competitive candidate for the next generation non-volatile memory (NVM). This lecture is a comprehensive tutorial of metal oxide-based RRAM technology from device fabrication to array architecture design. State-of-the-art RRAM device performances, characterization, and modeling techniques are summarized, and the design considerations of the RRAM integration to large-scale array with peripheral circuits are discussed. Chapter 2 introduces the RRAM device fabrication techniques and methods to eliminate the forming process, and will show its scalability down to sub-10 nm regime. Then the device performances such as programming speed, variability control, and multi-level operation are presented, and finally the reliability issues such as cycling endurance and data retention are discussed. Chapter 3 discusses the RRAM physical mechanism, and the materials characterization techniques to observe the conductive filaments and the electrical characterization techniques to study the electronic conduction processes. It also presents the numerical device modeling techniques for simulating the evolution of the conductive filaments as well as the compact device modeling techniques for circuit-level design. Chapter 4 discusses the two common RRAM array architectures for large-scale integration: one-transistor-one-resistor (1T1R) and cross-point architecture with selector. The write/read schemes are presented and the peripheral circuitry design considerations are discussed. Finally, a 3D integration approach is introduced for building ultra-high density RRAM array. Chapter 5 is a brief summary and will give an outlook for RRAM’s potential novel applications beyond the NVM applications.
