Pierre-Gilles de Gennes a life in science by Laurence Plévert ( )
9 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 726 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Best known outside the scientific community for the Nobel Prize in Physics he won in 1991, Pierre-Gilles de Gennes was exceptional amongst scientists for the breadth and depth of his contributions in multiple fields of physics. He was also much ahead of his time in his desire to break down barriers between scientific disciplines and between fundamental and applied science. He was equally unusual in his willingness to explain the nature and purpose of his work to society at large and to young people in particular. Laurence Plévert's fascinating work retraces the influences and experiences that
Nanosciences the invisible revolution by C Joachim ( Book )
10 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 182 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Product Description: The nanosciences and their companion nanotechnologies are a hot topic all around the world. For some, they promise developments ranging from nanobots to revolutionary new materials. For others, they raise the specter of Big Brother and of atomically modified organisms (AMOs). This book is a counterbalance to spin and paranoia alike, asking us to consider what the nanosciences really are. Nanosciences are not just a branch of materials sciences, a common misrepresentation fostered in the funding wars. Nor should nanotechnology be confused with miniaturization, a convergence of microelectronics, biotechnology and lab-on-chip techniques. These misconceptions arise from a well-orchestrated US policy dating from the mid-1990s, in which the instrument that lies at the heart of the true nanoscience revolution the scanning tunneling microscope (STM) plays just a minor part. These issues are covered here for the first time in a book by a scientist who holds two Feynman prizes in nanotechnology and who has played a significant role in the birth of the nanosciences. Writing from the cutting edge and with an understanding of the real nature of nanoscience, the author provides a scientific and historical perspective on the subject, a response to the misplaced ethical concerns of objectors and to the scaremongering of the popular press
Nanosciences : la révolution invisible by C Joachim ( Book )
3 editions published in 2008 in French and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Histoire des nanotechnologies, développées à l'origine pour éviter l'utilisation massive de matériaux polluants par l'industrie et dont le champ d'application fut étendu ensuite. C. Joachim, directeur de recherches au CNRS, relate l'évolution des nanosciences et analyse les espoirs et les craintes qu'elles suscitent
Pierre-Gilles de Gennes : gentleman physicien by Laurence Plévert ( Book )
4 editions published in 2009 in French and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Une biographie du Prix Nobel de physique de 1991, établie après de longues heures d'entretiens, peu avant sa mort en mai 2007
De Gennes : duivelskunstenaar in de fysica by Laurence Plévert ( Book )

Pierre-Gilles de Gennes : l'enchanteur de la physique by Laurence Plévert ( Book )

CRISTALLISATION PAR RECUIT RAPIDE DU SILICIUM AMORPHE DEPOSE SUR VERRE by Laurence Plévert ( Book )
1 edition published in 1995 in French and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
CE MEMOIRE EST CONSACRE A LA CRISTALLISATION PAR RECUIT RAPIDE DE COUCHES MINCES DE SILICIUM AMORPHE DEPOSEES SUR VERRE, DANS LA PERSPECTIVE DE LA FABRICATION DE TRANSISTORS EN SILICIUM POLYCRISTALLIN. LA PREMIERE PARTIE DE CE TRAVAIL EST CONSACREE A LA MISE AU POINT D'UN MODELE COMPLET DES MECANISMES D'ECHAUFFEMENT DANS UN FOUR DE RECUIT RAPIDE, AINSI QUE D'UN OUTIL DE SIMULATION ASSOCIE, QUI PERMET DE PREVOIR LE COMPORTEMENT THERMIQUE DE L'ECHANTILLON. LA SECONDE PARTIE DE CE TRAVAIL PORTE SUR LA DETERMINATION, GRACE AUX OUTILS DEVELOPPES DANS LA PREMIERE PARTIE, DES PARAMETRES EXPERIMENTAUX DU RECUIT RAPIDE QUI PERMETTENT D'OBTENIR UNE CRISTALLISATION UNIFORME. UN DES PROBLEMES MAJEURS DE LA CRISTALLISATION DU SILICIUM AMORPHE SUR VERRE EST LA DEFORMATION DIMENSIONNELLE DES SUBSTRATS AU COURS DU RECUIT. LE TRAVAIL MONTRE QU'EN OPTIMISANT LES VITESSES D'ECHAUFFEMENT ET DE REFROIDISSEMENT, UN RECUIT EFFECTUE A UNE TEMPERATURE SUPERIEURE A LA TEMPERATURE DE TENSION TS DU VERRE PEUT MINIMISER LES DEFORMATIONS. LES CONDITIONS OPTIMISEES SONT APPLIQUEES A LA REALISATION DES TRANSISTORS. LES CARACTERISTIQUES ELECTRIQUES MESUREES (MOBILITE D'EFFET DE CHAMP DANS LA GAMME 20-30 CM2/V.S) SONT EQUIVALENTES A CELLES OBTENUES PAR RECUIT CONVENTIONNEL, Y COMPRIS POUR UNE TAILLE DE SUBSTRAT DE 100 100 MM
