    There has been an urgent need to create new A-level physics courses that will attract more students to the subject. The Institute of Physics, in partnership with the OCR Awarding Body, has developed one such course-Advancing Physics-that aims to make physics as attractive as possible to as many as possible, whilst remaining true to the soul of the subject. This article provides a flavour of the co... View full abstract»

    Many engineers think that history for engineers is a soft option, somehow 'not real engineering'. But engineers should value history precisely because it can be a soft option: it can help find the cheapest and simplest solution to an engineering problem and that is what engineers are paid to do. Furthermore, there are few more shameful errors than stubbing one's corporate toe twice on the same sto... View full abstract»

  • Reconstructing the learning environment for the new needs in engineering training

    Publication Year: 2001, Page(s):120 - 124

    The educational establishment is still the main place for engineering students to learn. This paper first reviews the disadvantages of requiring students to learn in this kind of environment, which is characterised by a fixed physical construction and location, and a fixed timetable. These disadvantages include limitations in curriculum planning inflexibility in the arranging of activities, and re... View full abstract»

  • Gas sensing for the 21st century: the case for organic thin films

    Publication Year: 2001, Page(s):99 - 105

    Organic compounds, particularly in the form of ultra-thin films, offer certain advantages for use in low-cost gas and vapour sensing systems. In this paper, the range of useful organic compounds is briefly reviewed and techniques to process the materials in the form of thin films are introduced. Examples of the applications of organic compounds to gas and vapour sensing are then given. The emphasi... View full abstract»

  • A novel nonlinear distortion characterisation standard for RF and microwave communication systems

    Theoretical results obtained with a simplified third order memoryless nonlinear system have shown that multitone test characteristics can be directly related to the more usual two-tone test figures. These theoretical developments have also proved that the noise power ratio (NPR) gives an optimistic measure of co-channel distortion. A corrected co-channel power ratio (CCPR) characterisation standar... View full abstract»

    In the semiconductor industry's evolutionary life cycle, the speed at which products are introduced to the market-space is key to the competitive success of individual companies. The semiconductor industry is classed as a fast-changing industry in which product technology, manufacturing process technology and industry organisation need to be continuously updated in relatively short cycle times. Th... View full abstract»
