  • Electronic Properties of Graphene Heterostructures with Hexagonal Crystalsby John Wallbank

    Springer 2014; US$ 129.00

    The last decade has witnessed the discovery of, and dramatic progress in understanding the physics of graphene and related two-dimensional materials. The development of methods for manufacturing and aligning high-quality two-dimensional crystals has facilitated the creation of a new generation of materials: the heterostructures of graphene with hexagonal... more...

  • Electronic Structureby K. Horn; M. Scheffler

    Elsevier Science 2000; US$ 550.00

    This book is the second volume in the Handbook of Surface Science series and deals with aspects of the electronic structure of surfaces as investigated by means of the experimental and theoretical methods of physics. The importance of understanding surface phenomena stems from the fact that for many physical and chemical phenomena, the surface plays... more...

  • High-Resolution Spin-Resolved Photoemission Spectrometer and the Rashba Effect in Bismuth Thin Filmsby Akari Takayama

    Springer Japan 2014; US$ 129.00

    In this thesis, the author has developed a high-resolution spin-resolved photoemission spectrometer that achieves the world-best energy resolution of 8 meV. The author has designed a new, highly efficient mini Mott detector that has a large electron acceptance angle and an atomically flat gold target to enhance the efficiency of detecting scattered... more...

  • Independent Variables for Optical Surfacing Systemsby Haobo Cheng

    Springer 2014; US$ 129.00

    Independent Variables for Optical Surfacing Systems discusses the characterization and application of independent variables of optical surfacing systems and introduces the basic principles of surfacing technologies and common surfacing systems. All the pivotal variables influencing surface quality are analyzed; evaluation methods for surface quality,... more...

  • Inorganic Nanoarchitectures by Organic Self-Assemblyby Stefan Guldin

    Springer 2013; US$ 129.00

    Macromolecular self-assembly - driven by weak, non-covalent, intermolecular forces - is a common principle of structure formation in natural and synthetic organic materials. The variability in material arrangement on the nanometre length scale makes this an ideal way of matching  the structure-function demands of photonic and optoelectronic devices.... more...
