In 1514, Henry VIII granted the Corporation of Trinity House a royal charter that made them responsible for the provision and maintenance of navigational aids in British territorial waters. 500 years later they are still responsible for the running of Britain's lighthouses. Though automated now, these lighthouses are maintained in all their unique and idiosyncratic splendour, proving popular architectural landmarks with locals and visitors alike. To celebrate Trinity House's quincentenary, this lavish photographic book features the best photography from the Corporation's own archive. Dramatic and evocative colour photos sit alongside text telling alternately fascinating and entertaining stories about these iconic structures dotted around the most vulnerable stretches of Britain's coastlines. Told from the Corporation's point of view, this will be a photographic account of iconic buildings to be treasured by anyone who finds the haunting beam of a lighthouse at sea an immensely comforting sight, as well as walkers and families for whom a lighthouse on the landscape is a completely irresistible draw.

Fundamental Principles Of Optical Lithography

The fabrication of an integrated circuit requires a variety of physical and chemical processes to be performed on a semiconductor substrate. In general, these processes fall into three categories: film deposition, patterning, and semiconductor doping. Films of both conductors and insulators are used to connect and isolate transistors and their components. By creating structures of these various components millions of transistors can be built and wired together to form the complex circuitry of modern microelectronic devices. Fundamental to all of these processes is lithography, ie, the formation of three-dimensional relief images on the substrate for subsequent transfer of the pattern to the substrate. This book presents a complete theoretical and practical treatment of the topic of lithography for both students and researchers. It comprises ten detailed chapters plus three appendices with problems provided at the end of each chapter. Additional Information: Visiting enhances the reader's understanding as the website supplies information on how you can download a free laboratory manual, Optical Lithography Modelling with MATLAB®, to accompany the textbook. You can also contact the author and find help for instructors.
