  • Cathodic Arcsby Andre Anders

    Springer 2009; US$ 219.00

    Emphasizes the fractal character of cathode spots, and describes strongly fluctuating plasma properties such as the presence of multiply charged ions that move with supersonic velocity. This book also deals with issues, such as arc source construction, and macroparticle removal. It is intended for scientists, practitioners, and students alike. more...

  • Spectroscopy of Low Temperature Plasmaby Vladimir N. Ochkin; Sergey Kittell

    Wiley 2009; US$ 270.00

    Written by a distinguished plasma scientist and experienced author, this up-to-date work comprehensively covers current methods and new developments and techniques, including non-equilibrium atomic and molecular plasma states, as well as such new applications as gas lasers. Containing numerous appendices with reference data indispensable for plasma... more...

  • Physics of Ionized Gasesby Boris M. Smirnov; Howard Reiss

    Wiley 2008; US$ 210.00

    A comprehensive textbook and reference for the study of the physics of ionized gases The intent of this book is to provide deep physical insight into the behavior of gases containing atoms and molecules from which one or more electrons have been ionized. The study of these so-called plasmas begins with an overview of plasmas as they are found in nature... more...

  • Electron Cyclotron Heating of Plasmasby Gareth Guest

    Wiley 2009; US$ 190.00

    Authored by a highly regarded plasma scientist, this book fills the gap for a topical reference and source with a professional audience in mind. While the use of this critical method at the international fusion reactor, ITER, is covered in detail, the monograph also includes planetary magnetospheres and plasma sources for commercial applications. With... more...

  • Golf Balls, Boomerangs and Asteroidsby Brian H. Kaye

    Wiley 2008; US$ 130.00

    Exciting reading for anyone with a curious mind! 'Walking one day by a golf course in Wisconsin, I was startled to hear a sharp bang as a golf ball narrowly missed my head and hit a tree. My companion cheerfully remarked, 'That could have killed you, you know.' I picked up the innocent looking little white ball and looked at it with new respect.'... more...

  • Plasma Cathode Electron Sourcesby Efim Oks

    Wiley 2007; US$ 200.00

    This book fills the gap for a textbook describing this kind of electron beam source in a systematic and thorough manner: from physical processes of electron emission to examples of real plasma electron sources and their applications. more...

  • Introduction to Plasma Spectroscopyby H.-J. Kunze

    Springer 2009; US$ 189.00

    Based on lectures given at the Ruhr-University of Bochum for graduate students and postgraduates starting in plasma physics as well as from low- to high-density hot plasmas, this book introduces basic ideas and fundamental concepts and typical instrumentation from the X-ray to the infrared spectral regions. more...

  • Complex and Dusty Plasmasby Vladimir E. Fortov; Gregor E. Morfill

    Taylor and Francis 2009; US$ 154.95

    Dusty or complex plasmas are plasmas containing solid or liquid charged particles referred to as dust. Naturally occurring in space, they are present in planetary rings and comet tails, as well as clouds found in the vicinity of artificial satellites and space stations. On a more earthly level, dusty plasmas are now being actively researched as dust... more...

  • Solid-Fluid Mixtures of Frictional Materials in Geophysical and Geotechnical Contextby Lukas Schneider; Kolumban Hutter

    Springer 2009; US$ 209.00

    This book puts the theory for a mixture of hypoplastic constituents on a rigorous basis using the thermodynamic analysis of Muller and Liu. The results which are specialised to frictional solid-fluid mixtures can be used by geophysicists and geotechnical engineers to refine their existing models for debris flows. This book addresses a continuum mechanical... more...

  • Introduction to Complex Plasmasby Michael Bonitz; Norman Horing; Jurgen Meichsner; Patrick Ludwig

    Springer 2010; US$ 219.00

    Complex plasmas differ from traditional plasmas in many ways: these are low-temperature high pressure systems containing nanometer to micrometer size particles which may be highly charged and strongly interacting. The particles may be chemically reacting or be in contact with solid surfaces, and the electrons may show quantum behaviour. These interesting... more...
