    The authors describe a range of microscopy techniques which are based on scanning a sharp tip over a surface. With such techniques it is possible both to image surfaces to atomic resolution, and to perform local property measurements to a resolution determined by the nature of the tip-surface interaction. As well as producing surface images, applications include imaging the electronic structure of... View full abstract»

    The evolution of full-year exchange programmes leading to new MEng degree courses is described in detail. The main objective of preparing engineering with 'fitness-for-Europe' is achieved by studying electrical and industrial subjects in another European Community (EC) language. The authors describe exchange within a 4 year BSc, MEng industrially linked course and new integrated European programme... View full abstract»

  • Green energy?

    Publication Year: 1992, Page(s):221 - 227
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (900 KB)

    The UK gets nearly all its energy from the fossil fuels (coal, oil, gas etc.) and nuclear power, approximately 15% being consumed in the form of electricity. It is now well known that the burning of fossil fuels is accompanied by atmospheric pollution in the form of acid rain, ozone depletion and the greenhouse effect. Renewable energy sources, e.g. wind, solar, tidal, wave, hydroelectric and geot... View full abstract»

    The work of the Royal Signals is diverse and constantly changing. The employment structure of its soldiers and officers creates an especial role for supervisors, who require careful selection, development and training. The processes are adapted to the needs of Yeomen of Signals (supervisory operators) and Foremen of Signals (technician engineers). The employment, selection and training methods are...

    The author discusses the beginnings of the synchronous machine at the end of the 19th century. In particular the author discusses the first long-distance transmission of high voltage three phase power using a machine with a power output of 210 kW at the International Exposition at Frankfurt in 1891. This machine is described in detail. Milestone in the development of the synchronous machine and hy... View full abstract»
