The success, growth, and virtually limitless applications of nanotechnology depend upon our ability to manipulate nanoscale objects, which in turn depends upon developing new insights into the interactions of electric fields, nanoparticles, and the molecules that surround them. In the first book to unite and directly address particle electrokinetics and nanotechnology, Nanoelectromechanics in Engineering and Biology provides a thorough grounding in the phenomena associated with nanoscale particle manipulation. The author delivers a wealth of application and background knowledge, from using electric fields for particle sorting in lab-on-a-chip devices to electrode fabrication, electric field simulation, and computer analysis. It also explores how electromechanics can be applied to sorting DNA molecules, examining viruses, constructing electronic devices with carbon nanotubes, and actuating nanoscale electric motors. The field of nanotechnology is inherently multidisciplinary-in its principles, in its techniques, and in its applications-and meeting its current and future challenges will require the kind of approach reflected in this book. Unmatched in its scope, Nanoelectromechanics in Engineering and Biology offers an outstanding opportunity for people in all areas of research and technology to explore the use and precise manipulation of nanoscale structures.

Present Your Research to the World! The World Congress 2009 on Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering – the triennial scientific meeting of the IUPESM - is the world’s leading forum for presenting the results of current scientific work in health-related physics and technologies to an international audience. With more than 2,800 presentations it will be the biggest conference in the fields of Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering in 2009! Medical physics, biomedical engineering and bioengineering have been driving forces of innovation and progress in medicine and healthcare over the past two decades. As new key technologies arise with significant potential to open new options in diagnostics and therapeutics, it is a multidisciplinary task to evaluate their benefit for medicine and healthcare with respect to the quality of performance and therapeutic output. Covering key aspects such as information and communication technologies, micro- and nanosystems, optics and biotechnology, the congress will serve as an inter- and multidisciplinary platform that brings together people from basic research, R&D, industry and medical application to discuss these issues. As a major event for science, medicine and technology the congress provides a comprehensive overview and in–depth, first-hand information on new developments, advanced technologies and current and future applications. With this Final Program we would like to give you an overview of the dimension of the congress and invite you to join us in Munich! Olaf Dössel Congress President Wolfgang C.

Microelectronic engineering has revolutionized electronics, providing new, faster and cheaper ways of doing things - and now the same technology is being applied to biotechnology and molecular biology! As sample volume is reduced, reaction speed and detector sensitivity are increased whilst sample and reagent requirements and device cost are reduced. Microelectronic engineering provides the potential for bench-top versions of large and expensive equipment such as flow cytometry, or novel ones that exploit physical phenomena on the micron scale, such as dielectrophoresis for cell analysis.In Microengineering in Biotechnology, experts in the field contribute chapters aimed at instilling in the reader a working understanding of the methods underlying microengineering and the means by which such methods can be used for a range of analytical techniques. It describes the methods by which microengineered devices can be built to perform a number of applications and considers how the field may progress by examining some more complex lab on a chip devices which have great potential in the advancement of the way in which molecular biology is performed. As a volume in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biologyâ„¢ series, this work provides the kind of detailed description and implementation advice that is crucial for getting optimal results.Cutting-edge yet easy-to-use, Microengineering in Biotechnology serves as a reference guide for practical microengineering techniques and as a route into the development of new devices for biological applications in order to strengthen the promising union of molecular and cellular biology with microelectronics.
