  • Strain Mechanisms in Lead-Free Ferroelectrics for Actuatorsby Matias Acosta

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 129.00

    This book addresses and analyzes the mechanisms responsible for functionality of two technologically relevant materials, giving emphasis on the relationship between structural transitions and electromechanical properties. The author investigates the atomic crystal structure and microstructure by means of thermal analysis, as well as diffraction and... more...

  • 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...

  • Strong and Weak Topology Probed by Surface Scienceby Christian Pauly

    Springer Fachmedien Wiesbaden 2016; US$ 79.99

    Christian Pauly demonstrates the strong topological properties of the technologically relevant phase change materials Sb 2 Te 3 and Ge 2 Sb 2 Te 5 by using two powerful techniques for mapping the surface electronic structure: scanning tunneling spectroscopy (STS) and angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy (ARPES). In the case of a phase change... more...

  • Atomic Diffusion in Glasses Studied with Coherent X-Raysby Manuel Ross

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 129.00

    This thesis provides the first successful study of jump diffusion processes in glasses on the atomic scale, utilizing a novel coherent technique. This new method, called atomic-scale X-ray Photon Correlation Spectroscopy or aXPCS, has only recently been proven to be able to capture diffusion processes with atomic resolution in crystal systems. With... more...

  • Underwater Scattering and Radiationby Allan D. Pierce; R. N. Thurston

    Elsevier Science 2015; US$ 72.95

    Underwater Scattering and Radiation describes the relevant theoretical foundations of underwater scattering and radiation. Acoustic scattering from elastic solids is discussed, and variational formulations in acoustic radiation and scattering are presented. Surface waves and quasi-cylindrical modes are also explored, along with the Helmholtz-Kirchhoff... more...

  • Messtechnikby Fernando Puente León

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2015; US$ 44.99

    Dieses Lehrbuch behandelt die systemtheoretischen Grundlagen der Messtechnik. Dabei werden die allen Messsystemen gemeinsamen Verfahren in den Vordergrund gestellt. Der Inhalt des Buches umfasst ? die mathematische Beschreibung des physikalischen Verhaltens von Messsystemen, ? die Verbesserung der statischen und dynamischen Eigenschaften von Messsystemen,... more...

  • Physik des Sportsby Leopold Mathelitsch; Sigrid Thaller

    Wiley 2015; US$ 21.95

    Von Kräftedreieck und Impulserhaltungssatz zu sportlichen Höchstleistungen und Rekorden Sport ist angewandte Physik - wer hätte das vermutet? Bei näherem Hinsehen ist dieser Gedanke jedoch gar nicht so abwegig. Gerade deshalb ist unsere Faszination zweifach, wenn wir Profisportlern bei der "Arbeit" zusehen: Mit ihren trainierten... more...

  • Ultrafast Dynamics of Phospholipid-Water Interfacesby René Costard

    Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 129.00

    This thesis presents a highly innovative study of the ultrafast structural and vibrational dynamics of hydrated phospholipids, the basic constituents of cell membranes. As a novel approach to the water-phospholipid interface, the author studies phosphate vibrations using the most advanced methods of nonlinear vibrational spectroscopy, including femtosecond... more...

  • Binding Energy of Strongly Deformed Radionuclidesby Vladimir Manea

    Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 129.00

    This thesis reports results of precision mass spectrometry of exotic nuclides as a means of elucidating their structure. The work was performed with the ISOLTRAP spectrometer at CERN?s ISOLDE facility. The author furthermore offers an overview of existing techniques used in Penning-trap mass spectrometry and also reports on recent promising developments... more...

  • Heat and Mass Transfer in the Melting of Frostby William F. Mohs; Francis A. Kulacki

    Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 54.99

    This Brief is aimed at engineers and researchers involved in the refrigeration industry: specifically, those interested in energy utilization and system efficiency. The book presents what the authors believe is the first comprehensive frost melting study involving all aspects of heat and mass transfer. The volume?s description of in-plane and normal... more...
