#### Thermal Plasma Torches

Cambridge International Science Publishing 2007; US$ 200.00The results of experimental research of plasma torches are described. A simple classification of linear plasma torches is proposed. Engineering methods of processing experimental data are outlined together with the electrical and thermal characteristics of plasma torches of different design in criterial form. Special attention is paid to the problems... more...

#### Polarization Effects in Semiconductors

Springer US 2007; US$ 179.00This book presents the latest understanding of the solid physics, electronic implications and practical applications of the unique spontaneous or pyro-electric polarization charge of hexagonal semiconductors, and the piezo-electric effects in thin film hetero-structures, which are used in wide forbidden band gap sensor, electronic and opto-electronic... more...

#### Hydromagnetic Waves in the Magnetosphere and the Ionosphere

Springer 2007; US$ 269.00The book deals with Ultra-Low-Frequency (ULF)-electromagnetic waves observed on the Earth and in Space. These are so-called geomagnetic variations or pulsations. Alfv??n's discovery related to the influence of the strong magnetic field on the conducting fluids (magnetohydrodynamics) led to development of the concept that the ULF-waves are magnetospheric... more...

#### Plasma Polarization Spectroscopy

Springer 2007; US$ 259.00Plasma Polarization Spectroscopy (PPS) is now becoming a standard diagnostic technique for working with laboratory plasmas. This new area needs a comprehensive framework, both experimental and theoretical. This book reviews the historical development of PPS, develops a general theoretical formulation to deal with this phenomenon, along with an overview... more...

#### Energy

Infobase Publishing 2007; US$ 30.00Energy is the central concept of physics. Unable to be created or destroyed but transformable from one form to another, energy ultimately determines what is and isn't possible in our universe. This book gives readers an appreciation for the limits of energy and the quantities of energy in the world around them. This fascinating book explores the... more...
