Microfabrication and nanomanufacturing.


Microfabrication and nanomanufacturing.

Ed. by Mark J. Jackson.

CRC / Taylor & Francis


401 pages




Readers are alerted at the very beginning that the development of products at the nanoscale and microscale is driven by economic necessity in highly developed countries in order to improve the quality of life and prevent the spread of terrorism. The economic and moral legitimacy of the field having been established, engineers and scientists from Britain, the US, Malaysia, and Portugal focus on the fabrication and manufacture of such products. Their topics include microfabrication using x-ray lithography, the size effect in micromachining, laser-based fabrication, pulsed water drop micromachining, deposition routes and applications for nanocrystalline diamond, and commercialization issues.
