Research and Markets Announces: The First Book to Extensively Detail the Markets and Applications for MEMS and Nanotechnology

DUBLIN, Ireland | Posted on March 6th, 2008

A Consumer's Guide to MEMS & Nanotechnology is the first book to extensively detail why and how various types of MEMS (micro-electro-mechanical systems) devices and nanomaterials are being put to use in commercial products.

With detailed examples of products from nearly 500 companies, "A Consumer's Guide to MEMS & Nanotechnology" is an excellent overview of the current state of MEMS and nanotech commercialization. Both the public and industry will benefit greatly from this book.

Organizations involved in the research, manufacture or use of nanomaterials and MEMS devices will gain insight into the competitive landscape and potential market opportunities. The public will find the conversational approach to a technical, complex topic especially helpful.

Divided into two parts, the first half of the book examines the business history of MEMS and nanotechnology, their evolution into the marketplace, and how material science (nanotech) and engineering (MEMS) have become intertwined. Dozens of MEMS devices and nanomaterials are discussed in detail—including how they work, what makes them unique and why they're useful.

Part two provides hundreds of real-life applications of MEMS and nanotechnology in cars, homes, consumer electronics, cosmetics, personal care, clothing, footwear, jewelry, sporting goods, healthcare, medicine, food production, oil exploration and more.

Downright fascinating, dozens of illustrations and a 32-page insert of full-color photographs enhance this 287-page paperback book.

Companies mentioned include: 3M, Akzo Nobel, AMCOL, Analog Devices, BASF, Bayer, BMW, Ciba, Colgate-Palmolive, Dow Corning, Du Pont, Freescale Semiconductor, General Electric (GE), Henkel, Hitachi, Honeywell, IBM, Johnson & Johnson, Kodak, L'Oreal, LG Electronics, Omron, PPG Industries, Procter & Gamble, Samsung, Shiseido, Sony, Texas Instruments, Teijin Fiber Corporation, Toray Industries, Unilever, and hundreds more.
