Download Nanotechnology, the Brain, and the Future: 3 (Yearbook of by Sean A. Hays,Jason Scott Robert,Clark A. Miller,Ira Bennett PDF

By Sean A. Hays,Jason Scott Robert,Clark A. Miller,Ira Bennett

Our mind is the resource of every little thing that makes us human: language, creativity, rationality, emotion, conversation, tradition, politics. The neurosciences have given us, in contemporary many years, primary new insights into how the mind works and what that implies for the way we see ourselves as participants and as communities. Now – with assistance from new advances in nanotechnology – mind technology proposes to head extra: to check its molecular foundations, to fix brain functions, to create mind-machine interfaces, and to reinforce human psychological capacities in radical methods. This booklet explores the convergence of those two revolutionary clinical fields and the results of this convergence for the way forward for human societies. within the procedure, the publication deals an important new approach to expertise evaluation, one that operates in real-time, along the innovation technique, to notify the ways that new fields of technological know-how and technology emerge in, get formed via, and aid form human societies.

Download Carbon Nanotube Enhanced Aerospace Composite Materials: A by A. Paipetis,V. Kostopoulos PDF

By A. Paipetis,V. Kostopoulos

The good documented raise within the use of excessive functionality composites as structural fabrics in aerospace elements is regularly elevating the calls for when it comes to dynamic functionality, structural integrity, trustworthy existence tracking platforms and adaptive actuating skills. present applied sciences handle the above concerns individually; fabric estate tailoring and customized layout practices objective to the enhancement of dynamic and harm tolerance features, while lifestyles tracking and actuation is played with embedded sensors which may be hazardous to the structural integrity of the part.

This booklet explores the original homes of carbon nanotubes (CNT) as an additive within the matrix of Fibre bolstered Plastics (FRP), for generating structural composites with enhanced mechanical functionality in addition to sensing/actuating services. The winning blend of the CNT houses and current sensing actuating applied sciences results in the conclusion of a multifunctional FRP constitution. the present quantity provides the cutting-edge study during this box.

The contributions conceal all of the facets of the unconventional composite structures, i.e. modeling from nano to macro scale, enhancement of structural potency, dispersion and production, imperative well-being tracking talents, Raman tracking, in addition to the services that ordered carbon nanotube arrays supply by way of sensing and/or actuating in aerospace composites.

Download Konflikte und ihre Bedeutung für Innovationen: Eine by Meike Bentz PDF

By Meike Bentz

Innovationen verändern den established order. Das sichert Fortschritt und Wohlstand, sorgt aber auch für zahlreiche Widerstände. Derartige Konflikte sind ein Risiko für den Innovationsprozess, doch gleichzeitig eine oft verkannte likelihood! Damit sie zum Motor für Innovationen werden, müssen sie als wichtige Informationsquelle verstanden und genutzt werden. Wie genau das aussehen kann, zeigt diese deutschlandweite Feldstudie auf dem Gebiet der Nanotechnologie. Neu sind darin Vergleiche zwischen Großunternehmen, Start-ups, Universitäten und Forschungsinstituten sowie ein auf Patent- und Publikationsanalysen basierender Vergleich zwischen Hoch- und Standardleistern. Durch eine Kombination verschiedener Methoden wird ein umfassendes Bild darüber geliefert, welche Konflikte bei Innovationsprojekten auftreten und wie sich die verschiedenen Arten, ihnen zu begegnen, auf den Erfolg auswirken. Dabei werden typische Stolperfallen und Irrtümer erläutert und die Stärken und Schwächen der einzelnen Organisationsformen aufgezeigt. Abschließend werden Wege vorgestellt, wie sich ein innovationsfreundlicher Umgang mit Konflikten fördern lässt.
