Optical Microscanners and Microspectrometers using Thermal Bimorph Actuators shows how to design and fabricate optical microsystems using innovative technologies and and original architectures. A barcode scanner, laser projection mirror and a microspectrometer are explained in detail, starting from the system conception, discussing simulations, choice of cleanroom technologies, design, fabrication, device...
Design evokes creativity of a higher order and causes unexpected and inventive cross-fertilization across traditional borders or disciplines. This work offers the how-to's for designing for successful novelty, and discusses issues such as product language and meaning, and connecting with the end-user.
The motion of fluids is never in parallel- or counter-flow in heat exchangers and tube banks, leading to complexities in the equations for calculating their transferred heat and temperatures. This review of the topic includes 70 design and verification tables.
