  • Magnetohydrodynamic Stability of Tokamaksby Hartmut Zohm

    Wiley 2014; US$ 94.95

    This book bridges the gap between general plasma physics lectures and the real world problems in MHD stability. In order to support the understanding of concepts and their implication, it refers to real world problems such as toroidal mode coupling or nonlinear evolution in a conceptual and phenomenological approach. Detailed mathematical treatment... more...

  • Next Energyby Werner Brinker; Kristin Hengelage

    Gabal Verlag 2014; US$ 26.97

    Willkommen bei Familie Janssen - im Spätsommer des Jahres 2050! Dieses Buch haucht dem abstrakten Ziel der Energiewende Leben ein. Zukunftsforscher denken technische und gesellschaftliche Entwicklungen weiter und entwerfen eine anschauliche Zukunftsvision vom Alltag nach einer gelungenen Energiewende. Selbstverständlichkeiten wie die Versorgung mit... more...

  • Surface Microscopy with Low Energy Electronsby Ernst Bauer

    Springer 2014; US$ 179.00

    This book, written by a pioneer in surface physics and thin film research and the inventor of Low Energy Electron Microscopy (LEEM), Spin-Polarized Low Energy Electron Microscopy (SPLEEM) and Spectroscopic Photo Emission and Low Energy Electron Microscopy (SPELEEM), covers these and other techniques for the imaging of surfaces with low energy (slow)... more...

  • Self-Organization of Hot Plasmasby Yu.N. Dnestrovskij

    Springer 2014; US$ 129.00

    In this monograph the author presents the Canonical Profile Transport Model or CPTM as a rather general mathematical framework to simulate plasma discharges.The description of hot plasmas in a magnetic fusion device is a very challenging task and many plasma properties still lack a physical explanation. One important property is plasma self-organization.It... more...

  • Excitation Energies and Properties of Open-Shell Singlet Moleculesby Masayoshi Nakano

    Springer 2014; US$ 54.99

    This brief investigates the diradical character, which is one of the ground-state chemical indices for 'bond weakness' or 'electron correlation' and which allows researchers to explore the origins of the electron-correlation-driven physico-chemical phenomena concerned with electronic, optical and magnetic properties as well as to control... more...

  • Impact-Activated Solidification of Cornstarch and Water Suspensionsby Scott R. Waitukaitis

    Springer 2014; US$ 129.00

    This thesis approaches impact resistance in dense suspensions from a new perspective. The most well-known example of dense suspensions, a mixture of cornstarch and water, provides enough impact resistance to allow a person to run across its surface. In the past, this phenomenon had been linked to 'shear thickening' under a steady shear state... more...

  • Scanning Tunneling Spectroscopy of Magnetic Bulk Impuritiesby Henning Prüser

    Springer 2014; US$ 129.00

    Magnetic impurities in a non-magnetic host metal have been?actively explored in condensed matter physics?in recent?last decades. From?both fundamental and applied?viewpoints these systems are very interesting because they can exhibit strong electronic correlations that give rise to various fascinating phenomena beyond the single particle picture. Up... more...

  • Laser Assisted Nuclear Decay Spectroscopyby Kara Marie Lynch

    Springer 2014; US$ 129.00

    This work details an application of collinear resonance ionization spectroscopy for the separation of short-lived isomeric states and their subsequent study with decay spectroscopy.?It reports the successful construction of?a novel decay spectroscopy apparatus that can operate at pressures below 1 x 10^-9 mbar. The method is demonstrated by separating... more...

  • Electronic Properties of Graphene Heterostructures with Hexagonal Crystalsby John Wallbank

    Springer 2014; US$ 129.00

    The last decade has witnessed the discovery of, and dramatic progress in understanding the physics of graphene and related two-dimensional materials. The development of methods for manufacturing and aligning high-quality two-dimensional crystals has facilitated the creation of a new generation of materials: the heterostructures of graphene with hexagonal... more...

  • Complex Plasmasby Michael Bonitz; Jose Lopez; Kurt Becker; Hauke Thomsen

    Springer 2014; US$ 129.00

    This book provides the reader with an introduction to the physics of complex plasmas, a discussion of the specific scientific and technical challenges they present and an overview of their potential technological applications.Complex plasmas differ from conventional high-temperature plasmas in several ways: they may contain additional species, including... more...
