    Conjugated polymers possess the electrical and optical properties traditionally associated with metals and semiconductors, yet retain the mechanical properties and processibility of plastics. This combination of electrical and mechanical properties is attracting a good deal of fundamental scientific interest. From the practical standpoint, these materials also hold great promise for a wide range o... View full abstract»

    The author discusses the framework within which firms, and governments, can begin to manage the integration of technology and environment. Industrial ecology, a developing multidisciplinary field, provides the theoretical framework. The Design for Environment (DFE) infrastructure, at the national and international levels, integrates social value judgments and multisectoral information into tools a... View full abstract»

    This two-way interface allows the user to send and receive information between two microcomputers via one-line message displays, with the readout appearing simultaneously at both transmitting and receiving screens. The design of this parallel-line, handshaking interface is fairly straightforward, and it is easy to build and troubleshoot. Thus, it is an ideal first project for the student, or a sim...

    Spatially coherent laser light can be coupled into an optical waveguide with nearly 100 percent efficiency. However, coupling light from a spatially incoherent source to a waveguide can be frustrating. Here the author describes how to efficiently couple blackbody radiation to optical fiber waveguides. The same basic principles hold for other types of waveguides, such as integrated optic waveguides... View full abstract»

    This article has attempted to summarize the rapid evolution of automotive electronics during the period of 1970 to 1995. Also, a brief description has been given of the most promising products that the public will see in vehicles at the turn of the century. Future frontiers in automotive electronics will continue to present opportunities for circuit and device engineers to contribute innovative ne... View full abstract»
