About this series
As one of the largest private sector research establishments in the world, Philips Research is shaping the future with innovative concepts that meet peoples’ needs and desires. While the ultimate user benefits of these inventions end up on the high-street shelves, the often pioneering scientific and technological basis usually remains less visible.
This ‘Philips Research Book Series’ has been set up as a way for our researchers to contribute to the scientific community by publishing their comprehensive results and theories in a convenient book form.
Dr Peter Wierenga
Chief Executive Officer of Philips Research 2007-2010
