This thesis describes novel substrate embedded physical sensors that can be used to monitor different types of cell-based assays non-invasively and label-free. The sensors described provide integrative information of the cells under study with an adaptable time resolution (ranging from milliseconds to days). This information about the dynamic cell response to chemical, physical or biological stimuli defines a new paradigm in fundamental biomedical research. The author, Maximilian Oberleitner, describes approaches in which the cells are directly grown on different sensor surfaces (gold-film electrodes, shear wave resonators or dye-doped polymer films). This approach, with the reacting cells in particularly close proximity and contact with the sensor surface, is key to a remarkable sensitivity, opening the way for a variety of new applications. This thesis not only introduces the fundamentals of each approach, but it also describes in great detail the design principles and elucidates the boundary conditions of the new sensors.

Die Anwendung von Smart Materials in der Architektur ist ein innovatives, dynamisches Gebiet, in dem Forschung, Entwicklung und Anwendung im Bau fließend ineinander übergehen. Smart Materials mit ihren reversiblen Wechseleigenschaften reagieren auf Stimuli wie Licht, Temperatur und elektrisches Feld. Sie verändern sich dabei in Form, Farbe, Viskosität etc. Zu den faszinierendsten Entwicklungen gehören Formgedächtnis-Legierungen oder Phase Change Materials. Es lassen sich beispielsweise selbsttätig agierende kinetische Fassaden entwickeln oder auch Tapeten, die temperatur- und lichtabhängig Farbe und Muster verändern. Das Buch stellt einleitend die Entwicklung dieser Materialien sowie ihren Kontext in Architektur, Design und Kunst dar. Ein systematisch aufgebauter Überblick mit zahlreichen Details über Eigenschaften, Technologien, Produkte und Projekte wird anhand von rund zwanzig Materialgruppen gegeben.

Covering both the classical and emerging nanoelectronic technologies being used in mixed-signal design, this book addresses digital, analog, and memory components. Winner of the Association of American Publishers' 2016 PROSE Award in the Textbook/Physical Sciences & Mathematics category. Nanoelectronic Mixed-Signal System Design offers professionals and students a unified perspective on the science, engineering, and technology behind nanoelectronics system design. Written by the director of the NanoSystem Design Laboratory at the University of North Texas, this comprehensive guide provides a large-scale picture of the design and manufacturing aspects of nanoelectronic-based systems. It features dual coverage of mixed-signal circuit and system design, rather than just digital or analog-only. Key topics such as process variations, power dissipation, and security aspects of electronic system design are discussed. Top-down analysis of all stages--from design to manufacturing Coverage of current and developing nanoelectronic technologies--not just nano-CMOS Describes the basics of nanoelectronic technology and the structure of popular electronic systems Reveals the techniques required for design excellence and manufacturability
