As our knowledge of microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) continues to grow, so does The MEMS Handbook. The field has changed so much that this Second Edition is now available in three volumes. Individually, each volume provides focused, authoritative treatment of specific areas of interest. Together, they comprise the most comprehensive collection of MEMS knowledge available, packaged in an attractive slipcase and offered at a substantial savings. This best-selling handbook is now more convenient than ever, and its coverage is unparalleled.
The third volume, MEMS: Applications, offers a broad overview of current, emerging, and possible future MEMS applications. It surveys inertial sensors, micromachined pressure sensors, surface micromachined devices, microscale vacuum pumps, reactive control for skin-friction reduction, and microchannel heat sinks, among many others. Two new chapters discuss microactuators and nonlinear electrokinetic devices. This book is vital to understanding the current and possible capabilities of MEMS technologies.
MEMS: Applications comprises contributions from the foremost experts in their respective specialties from around the world. Acclaimed author and expert Mohamed Gad-el-Hak has again raised the bar to set a new standard for excellence and authority in the fledgling fields of MEMS and nanotechnology.

Page v - Hekinah degul: the others repeated the same words several times, but then I knew not what they meant. "I lay all this while, as the reader may believe, in great uneasiness: at length, struggling to get loose, I had the fortune to break the strings, and wrench out the pegs that fastened my left arm to the ground; for, by lifting it up to my face, I discovered the methods they had taken to bind me, and at the same time with a violent pull, which...

Page v - I could only look upwards, the sun began to grow hot, and the light offended my eyes. I heard a confused noise about me, but, in the posture I lay, could see nothing except the sky. In a little time I felt something alive moving on my left leg, which advancing gently forward, over my breast, came almost up to my chin ; when bending my eyes downward as much as I could, I perceived it to be a human creature not six inches high, with a bow and arrow in his hands, and a quiver at hit back.
