  • Hard X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (HAXPES)by Joseph C. Woicik

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 229.00

    This book provides the first complete and up-to-date summary of the state of the art in HAXPES and motivates readers to harness its powerful capabilities in their own research. The chapters are written by experts. They include historical work, modern instrumentation, theory and applications. This book spans from physics to chemistry and materials science... more...

  • Reviews in Plasmonics 2015by Chris D. Geddes

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 209.00

    Reviews in Plasmonics 2015, the second volume of the new book series from Springer, serves as a comprehensive collection of current trends and emerging hot topics in the field of Plasmonics and closely related disciplines. It summarizes the year?s progress in surface plasmon phenomena and its applications, with authoritative analytical reviews in... more...

  • Theory of Reflectionby John Lekner

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 179.00

    This book deals with the reflection of electromagnetic and particle waves by interfaces. The interfaces can be sharp or diffuse. The topics of the book contain absorption, inverse problems, anisotropy, pulses and finite beams, rough surfaces, matrix methods, numerical methods,  reflection of particle waves and neutron reflection. Exact general results... more...

  • Surface Chemistry and Macroscopic Assembly of Graphene for Application in Energy Storageby Cheng-Meng Chen

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2015; US$ 129.00

    This PhD thesis presents the latest findings on the tunable surface chemistry of graphene/graphene oxide by systematically investigating the tuning of oxygen and nitrogen containing functional groups using an innovative carbonization and ammonia treatment. In addition, novel macroscopic assemblies or hybrids of graphene were produced, laying the theoretical... more...

  • Nanomaterials and Nanoarchitecturesby M. Bardosova; T. Wagner

    Springer Netherlands 2015; US$ 119.00

    The current work consists of nine contributions describing recent progress in the interdisciplinary of Nanoscience, which involves physics, chemistry, engineering, biology and medicine and one essay outlining some important historical and socioeconomic factors pertaining to recent developments in nanoscale science and technology. All 10 chapters... more...

  • Materials for Energy Infrastructureby Werasak Udomkichdecha; Anchalee Mononukul; Thomas Böllinghaus; Jürgen Lexow

    Springer Singapore 2015; US$ 129.00

    This book presents contributions to the topics of materials for energy infrastructure with a focus on data and informatics for materials. This spectrum of topics has been chosen because challenges in terms of materials are identified to lie in transport and storage of energy, adequate supply of food and water, well-working infrastructure, materials... more...

  • Fundamentals of Phase Separation in Polymer Blend Thin Filmsby Sam Coveney

    Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 129.00

    This work sheds new light on fundamental aspects of phase separation in polymer-blend thin films. A key feature underlying the theoretical models is the unification of one-dimensional thermodynamic phase equilibria with film evolution phenomena in two- and three dimensions. Initially, an established 'phase portrait' method, useful for visualising and... more...

  • Modified Au-Based Nanomaterials Studied by Surface Plasmon Resonance Spectroscopyby Aída Serrano Rubio

    Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 129.00

    This work pursues a novel route to functionalizing large surfaces with hybrid nanoparticles. It also casts new light on the combined use of surface plasmon resonance and X-rays. SPR spectroscopy is employed to study Au-based plasmonic nanostructures fabricated by novel methods, and a new experimental device is developed combining SPR with X-ray absorption... more...

  • Spin-Orbit-Induced Spin Textures of Unoccupied Surface States on Tl/Si(111)by Sebastian David Stolwijk

    Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 129.00

    This thesis describes the construction of a rotatable spin-polarized electron source and its use in spin- and angle-resolved inverse photoemission to investigate the unoccupied electron states of Tl/Si(111)-(1x1) with special emphasis on their spin texture. Towards more efficient electronics - with the electron spin as information carrier: This motto... more...

  • Relationship Between Structure and Magnetic Behaviour in ZnO-Based Systemsby Clara Guglieri

    Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 129.00

    This work studies the magnetic behavior of ZnO nanoparticles capped with different organic molecules and showing room-temperature ferromagnetism (RTFM). Of particular significance is the combination of element-specific X-ray absorption spectroscopy (XAS) and X-ray magnetic circular dichroism (XMCD) techniques, which demonstrates the intrinsic occurrence... more...
