- World Scientific Publishing Company 1983; US$ 92.00
This is a collection of writings of Professor Abdus Salam, Nobel Laureate of Physics, 1979. The writings touch on many different themes, and discuss the social and economic dimensions of science. Difficulties faced by scientists in developing countries and their solutions are also given some insightful analysis. There are also interesting accounts... more...
- Springer 2009; US$ 159.00
Emphasizes the fractal character of cathode spots, and describes strongly fluctuating plasma properties such as the presence of multiply charged ions that move with supersonic velocity. This book also deals with issues, such as arc source construction, and macroparticle removal. It is intended for scientists, practitioners, and students alike. more...
- Springer 2011; US$ 119.00
Ion beams have been used for decades for characterizing and analyzing materials. Now energetic ion beams are providing ways to modify the materials in unprecedented ways. This book highlights the emergence of high-energy swift heavy ions as a tool for tailoring the properties of materials with nanoscale structures. Swift heavy ions interact with materials... more...
- Springer 2009; US$ 189.00
Introduces materials scientists and designers, physicists and chemists to the properties of materials that can be modified by ion irradiation or implantation. This title discusses the effects related to better-known quasi-equilibrium thermodynamics, and the consequences to materials with concepts that are familiar to materials science. more...
- World Scientific Publishing Company 2007; US$ 193.00
The contributions in this volume discuss numerous hot topics of interdisciplinary interest in plasma physics, astrophysics, and fluid dynamics. It collects the articles presented at a Workshop that has gathered world experts with a broad spectrum of research interests. more...
- World Scientific Publishing Company 1989; US$ 20.00
A compilation of previously unpublished lectures delivered at the International Centre for Theoretical Physics by the pioneers and creators of modern physics --Bethe, Dirac, Heisenberg, Wigner, Klein and Landau (the sixth delivered by E Lifshitz). By sharing with us their own lives of physics, these outstanding physicists convey the sense of total... more...
- CRC Press 2002; US$ 165.95
An introduction to the physics of highly charged ions. This book covers the major areas of X-ray radiation and elementary atomic processes occuring with highly charged ions in hot laboratory and astrophysical plasmas. more...
- Elsevier Science 1996; US$ 205.00
This is a comprehensive text describing the basic physics and technological applications of vacuum arcs. Part I describes basic physics of the vacuum arc, beginning with a brief tutorial review of plasma and electrical discharge physics, then describes the arc ignition process, cathode and anode spots which serve as the locus for plasma generation,... more...
- Wiley 2006; US$ 300.00
The first edition of this title has become a well-known reference book on ion sources. The field is evolving constantly and rapidly, calling for a new, up-to-date version of the book. In the second edition of this significant title, editor Ian Brown, himself an authority in the field, compiles yet again articles written by renowned experts covering... more...
- Elsevier Science 1992; US$ 72.95
Ion beam processing is a means of producing both novel materials and structures. The contributions in this volume strongly focus on this aspect and include many papers reporting on the modification of the electrical and structural properties of the target materials, both metals and semiconductors, as well as the synthesis of buried and surface compound... more...
