Plasma (Ionized gases)

  • Strain Mechanisms in Lead-Free Ferroelectrics for Actuatorsby Matias Acosta

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 129.00

    This book addresses and analyzes the mechanisms responsible for functionality of two technologically relevant materials, giving emphasis on the relationship between structural transitions and electromechanical properties. The author investigates the atomic crystal structure and microstructure by means of thermal analysis, as well as diffraction and... more...

  • Hard X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (HAXPES)by Joseph C. Woicik

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 229.00

    This book provides the first complete and up-to-date summary of the state of the art in HAXPES and motivates readers to harness its powerful capabilities in their own research. The chapters are written by experts. They include historical work, modern instrumentation, theory and applications. This book spans from physics to chemistry and materials science... more...

  • Strong and Weak Topology Probed by Surface Scienceby Christian Pauly

    Springer Fachmedien Wiesbaden 2016; US$ 79.99

    Christian Pauly demonstrates the strong topological properties of the technologically relevant phase change materials Sb 2 Te 3 and Ge 2 Sb 2 Te 5 by using two powerful techniques for mapping the surface electronic structure: scanning tunneling spectroscopy (STS) and angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy (ARPES). In the case of a phase change... more...

  • Atomic Diffusion in Glasses Studied with Coherent X-Raysby Manuel Ross

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 129.00

    This thesis provides the first successful study of jump diffusion processes in glasses on the atomic scale, utilizing a novel coherent technique. This new method, called atomic-scale X-ray Photon Correlation Spectroscopy or aXPCS, has only recently been proven to be able to capture diffusion processes with atomic resolution in crystal systems. With... more...

  • Interferometry with Interacting Bose-Einstein Condensates in a Double-Well Potentialby Tarik Berrada

    Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 129.00

    This thesis demonstrates a full Mach?Zehnder interferometer with interacting Bose?Einstein condensates confined on an atom chip. It relies on the coherent manipulation of atoms trapped in a magnetic double-well potential, for which the author developed a novel type of beam splitter. Particle-wave duality enables the construction of interferometers... more...

  • Messtechnikby Fernando Puente León

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2015; US$ 44.99

    Dieses Lehrbuch behandelt die systemtheoretischen Grundlagen der Messtechnik. Dabei werden die allen Messsystemen gemeinsamen Verfahren in den Vordergrund gestellt. Der Inhalt des Buches umfasst ? die mathematische Beschreibung des physikalischen Verhaltens von Messsystemen, ? die Verbesserung der statischen und dynamischen Eigenschaften von Messsystemen,... more...

  • Heat and Mass Transfer in the Melting of Frostby William F. Mohs; Francis A. Kulacki

    Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 54.99

    This Brief is aimed at engineers and researchers involved in the refrigeration industry: specifically, those interested in energy utilization and system efficiency. The book presents what the authors believe is the first comprehensive frost melting study involving all aspects of heat and mass transfer. The volume?s description of in-plane and normal... more...

  • Modified Au-Based Nanomaterials Studied by Surface Plasmon Resonance Spectroscopyby Aída Serrano Rubio

    Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 129.00

    This work pursues a novel route to functionalizing large surfaces with hybrid nanoparticles. It also casts new light on the combined use of surface plasmon resonance and X-rays. SPR spectroscopy is employed to study Au-based plasmonic nanostructures fabricated by novel methods, and a new experimental device is developed combining SPR with X-ray absorption... more...

  • Gas-Phase IR Spectroscopy and Structure of Biological Moleculesby Anouk M. Rijs; Jos Oomens

    Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 259.00

    The series Topics in Current Chemistry presents critical reviews of the present and future trends in modern chemical research. The scope of coverage is all areas of chemical science including the interfaces with related disciplines such as biology, medicine and materials science. The goal of each thematic volume is to give the non-specialist reader,... more...

  • Quantum Microscopy of Biological Systemsby Michael Taylor

    Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 129.00

    This thesis reports on the development of the first quantum enhanced microscope and on its applications in biological microscopy. The first quantum particle-tracking microscope, described in detail here, represents a pioneering advance in quantum microscopy, which is shown to be a powerful and relevant technique for future applications in science... more...
