The First Book to Teach Children About MEMS and Nanotechnology Now Available from Research and Markets

DUBLIN, Ireland | Posted on February 27th, 2008

A basic introduction to MEMS (micro-electro-mechanical systems) and nanotechnology, this 32-page book explores what we can find at the micro- and nano-scale, and then takes a look at various MEMS devices and nanomaterials. Products discussed include accelerometers, gyro sensors, pressure sensors, ink jet nozzles, optical MEMS, lab-on-a-chip, aerogels, carbon nanotubes, dendrimers, fullerenes, nanoclay, nanofibers, nanoparticles and nanowhiskers.

Readers will learn how MEMS devices work, what makes nanomaterials special, and why they're useful in all kinds of products kids are familiar with, such as bikes and video games. MEMS & Nanotechnology for Kids was written for students ages 11-14 to inspire interest in science and engineering, although younger children and adults alike may also benefit from the easy-to-read explanations. The hardcover book is beautifully illustrated with nearly 80 full-color photographs that are visually powerful.

Some of the companies and organizations that provided images include: Agilent Technologies, California Institute of Technology, Cornell University, DENSO Corporation, Georgia Institute of Technlogy, Institute of High Pressure Physics (Unipress), NASA/JPL, Nintendo, Research Center Karlsruhe, Sandia National Laboratory, Segway Inc., STMicroelectronics, Texas Instruments, University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign and University of Chicago.

Author Info:

Marlene Bourne is internationally recognized as one of the leading experts on MEMS (micro-electro-mechanical systems) and its convergence with nanotechnology. With nearly 15 years of expertise as an industry analyst specially covering these two areas, her technology and market insight extends from the chip to the end-use product, with both broad and deep knowledge of countless products, companies, markets and applications. Marlene has provided insight on emerging technologies to many business and technical publications, including Business 2.0, BusinessWeek, The Economist, Forbes, Investor's Business Daily, Los Angeles Times Magazine, the New York Times, USA Today and the Wall Street Journal. She has authored dozens of articles for a wide array of industry publications and is a frequent speaker at conferences and corporate events. The author of two books, A Consumer's Guide to MEMS & Nanotechnology, and MEMS & Nanotechnology for Kids, her third book, The Future of Healthcare: BioMEMS and Nanomedicine, will be published in 2008. Marlene also produces and hosts a weekly talk radio show about MEMS and nanotechnology, called The Bourne Report, which airs on Independent 1310 KXAM in Phoenix, and streams live to a global audience. Marlene holds a Bachelor of Science in Business from the University of Wisconsin - Stout, and a Master of Arts in International Business and International Economics from the American University in Washington, DC.
