    Taylor and Francis 2002; US$ 45.95

    An entertaining, instructive, diverse, and unusual book, Light and Dark: An Exploration in Science, Nature, Art and Technology encompasses a wide range of topics not normally found in one book. With more than 100 diagrams, graphs, and figures, the subjects discussed include the history of artificial lighting, eclipse cycles, light-sensitive eyeglasses,... more...

  • Thin-Film Optical Filters, Third Editionby

    Taylor and Francis 2001; US$ 173.95

    Very common optical coatings are those that give the faint, reflected color to the lenses in cameras, binoculars, and spectacles. The thin metal layer that makes the difference between a mirror and a simple sheet of glass is an optical coating. But, optical coatings are used in many more applications-a particularly important current one being the splitting... more...

  • Popularization and Peopleby Finn Aaserud

    Elsevier Science 2006; US$ 93.95

    The Niels Bohr Collected Works are now complete with the publication of Volume 12, Popularization and People (1911-1962). Niels Bohr is generally regarded as one of the most influential physicists of the twentieth century. The following are only some of the high points. In 1913, Bohr proposed a revolutionary model of the atom breaking with classical... more...

  • Free And Guided Optical Beamsby Sergio Martellucci; Massimo Santarsiero

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 193.00

    Optical beams are electromagnetic waves that remain essentially concentrated around a mean axis upon free propagation or that are guided by suitable structures. The study of these beams has existed long ago and since then this field has been a focus of active investigation. However, in recent years, the interest on optical beams has further increased,... more...

  • High Thermal Conductivity Materialsby Subhash L. Shinde; Jitendra Goela

    Springer-Verlag New York Inc 2006; US$ 199.00

    Covers the basic understanding of thermal conduction mechanisms in various high thermal conductivity materials including diamond, cubic boron nitride, and also the material like carbon nanotubes. This book is intended as a reference book for scientists and engineers involved in addressing thermal management issues. more...

  • Challenges to the Second Law of Thermodynamicsby Vladislav Cápek; Daniel P. Sheehan

    Springer 2006; US$ 269.00

    The second law of thermodynamics is considered one of the central laws of science, engineering and technology. For over a century it has been assumed to be inviolable by the scientific community. Over the last 10-20 years, however, more than two dozen challenges to it have appeared in the physical literature - more than during any other period in its... more...

  • Microscale Heat Transferby S. Kakac; L.L. Vasiliev; Y. Bayazitoglu

    Springer 2006; US$ 179.00

    The modern trend toward miniaturization of devices requires a better understanding of heat mass transfer phenomena in small dimensions. This work provides comprehensive assessment of the fundamentals of the Microscale heat transfer and transport phenomena and heat transfer and applications in Microsystems. more...
