Security and Privacy Issues in IoT Devices and Sensor Networks investigates security breach issues in IoT and sensor networks and explores the various solutions that are available. The book follows a two-fold approach, first focusing on the fundamentals and theory surrounding sensor networks and IoT security. It then goes on to explore the practical solutions that can be implemented to develop security for these elements, providing case studies to enhance understanding. Machine learning techniques are covered, as well as other security paradigms such as cloud security and cryptocurrency technologies. The book highlights how these techniques can be applied to identify attacks and vulnerabilities, preserve privacy, and enhance data security.
This in-depth reference is ideal for industry professionals dealing with WSN and IoT systems who want to enhance the security of these systems. Additionally, researchers, material developers and technology specialists dealing with the multifarious aspects of data privacy and security enhancement will benefit from this book.
For readers with some familiarity with macroscopic tribology, this practical introduction to nanotribology and nanomechanics features research by internationally recognized experts. They integrate the mechanics and materials-science perspectives.
This book provides a comprehensive overview of the structural, nanotribological and nanomechanical properties of skin with and without cream treatment as a function of operating environment. The biophysics of skin as the outer layer covering human or animal body is discussed as a complex biological structure. Skin cream is used to improve skin health and create a smooth, soft, and flexible surface with moist perception by altering the surface roughness, friction, adhesion, elastic modulus, and surface charge of the skin surface.
This book presents the perspectives of nanotechnology educators from around the world. Experts present the pressing challenges of teaching nanoscience and engineering to students in all levels of education, postsecondary and informal environments. The book was inspired by the 2014 NSF workshop for Nanoscience and Engineering Education. Since nanotechnology is a relatively new field, authors present recommendations for designing nanotechnology education programs. The chapters describe methods to teach specific topics, such as probe microscopy, size and scale, and nanomaterial safety, in classrooms around the world. Other chapters describe the ways that organizations like NNIN and the NISE Network have influenced informal nanotechnology education. Information technology plays a growing role in all types of education and several chapters are devoted to describing ways how educators can use online curricula for teaching nanotechnology to students from preschool to graduate school.
This book presents the physical and technical foundation of the state-of-the-art in applied scanning probe techniques. It constitutes a comprehensive overview of SPM applications. The chapters are written by leading researchers and application scientists.
Essentials from the series "Applied Scanning Probe Methods" are put together in the area of bio and biorelated systems. The contributions spread over all 13 volumes are now combined in this one volume. Thus, the reader will easily find a comprehensive overview of SPM applications for biosystems.
For scientists and professionals in academic and industry dealing with surface analytics of plant science, living cells, nanomedicine, cosmetics and biomimetics.
This book presents an overview of the general field of biomimetics - lessons from nature. It presents various examples of biomimetics, including roughness-induced superomniphobic surfaces which provide functionality of commercial interest. The major focus in the book is on lotus effect, rose petal effect, shark skin effect, and gecko adhesion. For each example, the book first presents characterization of an object to understand how a natural object provides functionality, followed by modeling and then fabrication of structures in the lab using nature's route to verify one's understanding of nature and provide guidance for development of optimum structures. Once it is understood how nature does it, examples of fabrication of optimum structures using smart materials and fabrication techniques, are presented. Examples of nature inspired objects are also presented throughout.
The first volume in the series was released in January 2004 and the second to fourth volumes in early 2006. The field is now progressing so fast that there is a need for one volume every 12 to 18 months to capture latest developments.
Volume VI presents 10 chapters on a variety of new and emerging techniques and refinements of SPM applications.
Multiscale Dissipative Mechanisms and Hierarchical Surfaces covers the rapidly developing topics of hierarchical surfaces, roughness-induced superhydrophobicity and biomimetic surfaces. The research in these topics has been progressing rapidly in the recent years due to the advances in the nanosciences and surfaces science and due to potential applications in nanotechnology. The first in its field, this monograph provides a comprehensive review of these subjects and presents the background introduction as well as recent and new results in the area.
