Knovel continues to broaden out its online library of technical content with a new subject area aimed at engineers across all industries incorporating optical components and systems as part of their overall designs.
The new Knovel Optics and Photonics area serves up technical background, guidelines, calculations and best practice material to help engineers leverage optical systems and components to improve product designs. The content area launches with 78 reference titles from a variety of notable societies and publishers, including Cambridge University Press, Elsevier, SPIE, Sprinter, Wiley, World Scientific, among others. Among the subject matter covered in Knovel Optics and Photonics are biomedical optics; geometric and physical optics; nanophotonics; signal and image processing and sensors; optical materials; and optomechanics.
Major global metropolitan areas are implementing a vast number of technology, energy, transportation, and Internet projects to make the metropolis a friendlier, greener, safer, and more sustainable place to be.
Here’s a look at robots depicted in movies and on TV during the 1950s and 1960s. We tried to collect the classics here, omitting the scores of forgettable B movies such as Santa Claus Conquers the Martians and Dr. Goldfoot and the Bikini Machine. Stay tuned for slideshows of robot stars from later decades.
