#### Natural Philosophy

The Floating Press 2014; US$ 3.99Along with several collaborators, Russian-born chemist Wilhelm Ostwald is regarded as one of the key figures in developing the field now known as physical chemistry. In 1909, he was awarded the Nobel Prize for his work on catalysis and several other key processes. In this comprehensive volume, Ostwald lays out a complete scientific system and relates... more...

#### Handbook Of Thermoluminescence

World Scientific Publishing Company 2003; US$ 136.00This book provides practical support for research, study, routine work and terminology in the field of thermoluminescence (TL). It discusses the methods of determining the kinetic parameters, the procedures for characterizing a thermoluminescent dosimetric system, and the definition of terms commonly used in the literature. more...

#### Introduction to Radiometry

SPIE 1998; US$ 44.00Radiometry is an essential part of the optical design of virtually every optical instrument, and key to many applications. It is also used to measure the radiation of various objects. This tutorial examines both the techniques of calculating radiative transfer and the measurement of fluxes and radiometric properties of various sorts. more...
