Biomechatronics

Author(s): Paul King
Biomechatronics 150 150 IEEE Pulse
This text is an interesting and useful overview of the general field of biomechatronics, representing the contributions of the primary author and 27 coauthors to what appears to be a significant expansion of Dr. Popovic’s earlier textbook Biomechatronics and Robotics (CRC Press, 2013). It is one of the few textbooks available currently covering this entire field of endeavor. read more

Fundamentals of Solid-State Lighting: LEDs, OLEDs, and Their Applications in Illumination and Displays

Author(s): Paul King
Fundamentals of Solid-State Lighting: LEDs, OLEDs, and Their Applications in Illumination and Displays 150 150 IEEE Pulse
Although this book is aimed primarily at electrical and electronics engineers, it can also be useful for all technical professionals who, in one way or another, are interested in lighting issues, especially those related to recent advances in light-emitting diode (LED) and organic-LED (OLED) technologies. This includes biomedical, civil, and industrial engineers, as well as architects, who may consider skipping some of the most specialized chapters of the book and focus on the (largely self-contained) sections devoted to LED and OLED lighting applications. read more
