  • X-Ray Diffraction by Polycrystalline Materialsby René Guinebretière

    ISTE 2006; US$ 117.00

    This book presents a physical approach to the diffraction phenomenon and its applications in materials science. Part one is a historical presentation of the discovery of X-ray diffraction. Part two is devoted to a description of the physical phenomenon of X-ray diffraction on perfect and imperfect crystals. A detailed analysis of the instruments... more...

  • Diffuse X-Ray Scattering and Models of Disorderby Thomas Richard Welberry

    Oxford University Press, UK 2004; US$ 72.99

    Diffuse X-ray scattering is a rich (virtually untapped) source of local structural information over and above that obtained by conventional crystallography. The book aims to show how computer simulation of a model crystal provides a general method by which diffuse scattering of all kinds and from all types of materials can be interpreted and analysed.... more...

  • X-rays in Atomic and Nuclear Physicsby N. A. Dyson

    Cambridge University Press 1990; US$ 48.00

    Discusses the methods of X-ray production. more...

  • High Energy Astrophysicsby Thierry J.-L. Courvoisier

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2012; US$ 99.00

    Discussing objects with variability timescales as short as years, months, days and hours, down to milli-seconds, this book describes and derives the physical processes of astrophysics and studies objects in which high-energy astrophysics processes are crucial. more...

  • X-Ray Fluorescence Spectrometry and Related Techniquesby Eva Margui; Rene Van Grieken

    Momentum Press 2013; US$ 189.00

    X-ray fluorescence spectrometry (XRF) is a well-established analytical technique for qualitative and quantitative elemental analysis of a wide variety of routine quality control and research samples. Among its many desirable features, it delivers true multi-element character analysis, acceptable speed and economy, easy of automation, and the capacity... more...

  • Cosmic Rays in Star-Forming Environmentsby Diego F. Torres; Olaf Reimer

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2013; US$ 299.00

    These are the proceedings of the Sant Cugat Forum 2nd Workshop on Cosmic-ray Induced Phenomenology in Stellar Environments, held April 16-19, 2012. The aim of this Workshop was to address the current knowledge and challenges of high-energy emission from stellar environments at all scales and provide a comprehensive review of the state of the field... more...

  • Extensive Air Showersby M.V.S. Rao; B.V. Sreekantan

    World Scientific Publishing Company 1998; US$ 154.00

    Ultrahigh energy cosmic rays carry information about their sources and the intervening medium apart from providing a beam of particles for studying certain features of high energy interactions currently inaccessible at man-made accelerators. They can at present be studied only via the extensive air showers (EAS's) they generate while passing through... more...

  • Aggregation-Induced Emissionby Ben Zhong Tang; Anjun Qin

    Wiley 2013; US$ 160.00

    Aggregation-Induced Emission (AIE) is a novel photophysical phenomenon which offers a new platform APPLICATIONS for researchers to look into the light-emitting processes from luminogen aggregates, from which useful information on structure?property relationships may be collected and mechanistic insights may be gained. The discovery of the AIE effect... more...

  • Nanobeam X-Ray Scatteringby Julian Stangl; Cristian Mocuta; Virginie Chamard; Dina Carbone

    Wiley 2013; US$ 140.00

    A comprehensive overview of the possibilities and potential of X-ray scattering using nanofocused beams for probing matter at the nanoscale, including guidance on the design of nanobeam experiments. The monograph discusses various sources, including free electron lasers, synchrotron radiation and other portable and non-portable X-ray sources. For... more...

  • Cosmic Raysby A. M. Hillas; Robert Robinson; Dean Athelstan Spilhaus; D. Ter Haar

    Elsevier Science 2013; US$ 72.95

    Cosmic Rays is a two-part book that first elucidates the discovery, nature, and particles produced by cosmic rays. This part also looks into the primary cosmic radiation; radio waves from the galaxy; extensive air showers; origin of cosmic rays; and other cosmic radiations. Part 2 consists of reprinted papers involving cosmic rays. Papers 1 to 10... more...
