Summary
Recent advances in microfabrication technologies have enabled the development of entirely new classes of small-scale devices with applications in fields ranging from biomedicine (portable defibrillators, drug delivery systems, etc.), to wireless communication and computing (cell phones, laptop computers, etc.), to reconnaissance (unmanned air vehicles, microsatellites etc.), and to augmentation of human function (exoskeletons etc.). In many cases, however, what these devices can actually accomplish is limited by the low energy density of their energy storage and conversion systems. This breakthrough book brings together in one place the information necessary to develop the high energy density combustion-based power sources that will enable many of these devices to realize their full potentials
