Developing and applying advanced approaches for system structuring is vital for fighting ever-increasing complexity of modern and future software systems. The concept of Coordinated Atomic (CA) actions has been developed at Newcastle University for designing and structuring complex concurrent and distributed applications. Certain successful experience has(More)
Prior to 1994, student registration at Newcastle University involved students being registered in a single place, where they would present a form which had previously been filled in by the student and their department. After registration this information was then transferred to a computerised format. The University decided that the entire registration(More)
—Stiction, or adhesion between suspended structures and the underlying surface, is a hurdle in batch fabricating long, freestanding MEMS structures. A novel technique is presented in this paper to release stiction. In this technique, a nanosecond rise time stress wave is launched on the backside of the Si sub-strate by impinging a 2.5 ns-duration Nd:YAG(More)
