  • 129 Xe Relaxation and Rabi Oscillationsby Mark Limes

    Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 129.00

    This thesis describes longitudinal nuclear relaxation measurements of solid 129Xe near 77 K with previously unattainable reproducibility, and demonstrates differences in relaxation, dependent upon the way in which the solid is condensed. These results are directly applicable to the generation and storage of large quantities of hyperpolarized 129Xe... more...

  • Superconductivityby R.G. Sharma

    Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 179.00

    This book presents the basics and applications of superconducting magnets. It explains the phenomenon of superconductivity, theories of superconductivity, type II superconductors and high-temperature cuprate superconductors. The main focus of the book is on the application to superconducting magnets to accelerators and fusion reactors and other applications... more...

  • Pseudogap and Precursor Superconductivity Study of Zn doped YBCOby Ece Uykur

    Springer Japan 2015; US$ 129.00

    In this thesis, the pseudogap and the precursor superconducting state, which are of great importance in clarifying the superconductivity mechanism in high-temperature cuprate superconductors, are investigated with a c -axis optical study in YBa 2 (Cu 1-x Zn x ) 3 O y . Testing was performed over a wide energy range with smaller temperature intervals... more...

  • Sensortechnikby Hans-Rolf Tränkler; Leonhard M. Reindl

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2015; US$ 199.00

    Das Handbuch ermöglicht Anwendern der Sensortechnik schnellen Zugriff auf fundiertes und aktuelles Fachwissen. Grundlagen und Anwendungen für alle Bereiche der Sensortechnik werden behandelt ? im Interesse der Anwender zunächst gegliedert nach der zu messenden Größe. Erst im Anschluss daran sind die Inhalte entsprechend der verschiedenen Sensortypen... more...

  • High Strain Rate Behavior of Nanocomposites and Nanocoatingsby Prashant Jindal

    Springer International Publishing 2014; US$ 54.99

    This book describes the use of multiwall carbon nanotubes as composites with polycarbonates and as protective coatings on glass surfaces. The book explains fabrication and characterization methods for these composites and coatings.  The author reports on the use of Split Hopkinson Pressure Bar set up for evaluating the dynamic strength of these composites... more...

  • XUV Pump-Probe Experiments on Diatomic Moleculesby Kirsten Schnorr

    Springer International Publishing 2014; US$ 129.00

    This book explores the relaxation dynamics of inner-valence-ionized diatomic molecules on the basis of extreme-ultraviolet pump-probe experiments performed at the free-electron laser (FEL) in Hamburg. Firstly, the electron rearrangement dynamics in dissociating multiply charged iodine molecules is studied in an experiment that made it possible to access... more...

  • Probing Crystal Plasticity at the Nanoscalesby Arief Budiman

    Springer Singapore 2014; US$ 54.99

    This Brief highlights the search for strain gradients and geometrically necessary dislocations as a possible source of strength for two cases of deformation of materials at small scales: nanoindented single crystal copper and uniaxially compressed single crystal submicron gold pillars. When crystalline materials are mechanically deformed in small... more...

  • 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...

  • Many-Body Approach to Electronic Excitationsby Friedhelm Bechstedt

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2014; US$ 229.00

    The many-body-theoretical basis and applications of theoretical spectroscopy of condensed matter, e.g. crystals, nanosystems, and molecules are unified in one advanced text for readers from graduate students to active researchers in the field. The theory is developed from first principles including fully the electron-electron interaction and spin interactions.... more...
