Solid State Physics

  • Bulk and Boundary Invariants for Complex Topological Insulatorsby Emil Prodan; Hermann Schulz-Baldes

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 89.99

    This monograph offers an overview of rigorous results on fermionic topological insulators from the complex classes, namely, those without symmetries or with just a chiral symmetry. Particular focus is on the stability of the topological invariants in the presence of strong disorder, on the interplay between the bulk and boundary invariants and on... more...

  • Mesoscopic Theories of Heat Transport in Nanosystemsby Antonio Sellitto; Vito Antonio Cimmelli; David Jou

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 109.00

    This book presents generalized heat-conduction laws which, from a mesoscopic perspective, are relevant to new applications (especially in nanoscale heat transfer, nanoscale thermoelectric phenomena, and in diffusive-to-ballistic regime) and at the same time keep up with the pace of current microscopic research. The equations presented in the book are... more...

  • Extreme States of Matterby Vladimir E. Fortov

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 229.00

    With its many beautiful colour pictures, this book gives fascinating insights into the unusual forms and behaviour of matter under extremely high pressures and temperatures. These extreme states are generated, among other things, by strong shock, detonation and electric explosion waves, dense laser beams, electron and ion beams, hypersonic entry of... 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...

  • Reviews in Plasmonics 2015by Chris D. Geddes

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 209.00

    Reviews in Plasmonics 2015, the second volume of the new book series from Springer, serves as a comprehensive collection of current trends and emerging hot topics in the field of Plasmonics and closely related disciplines. It summarizes the year?s progress in surface plasmon phenomena and its applications, with authoritative analytical reviews in... more...

  • Metalleby Erhard Hornbogen; Hans Warlimont

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2016; US$ 69.99

    Dieses ausgezeichnete Standardwerk bietet eine Darstellung der Struktur und Eigenschaften der Metalle und ihrer Anwendungen als Werkstoffe. Die Autoren beschreiben im ersten, wissenschaftlichen Teil den atomaren und mikroskopischen Aufbau, die thermodynamischen und die grundlegenden physikalischen und mechanischen Eigenschaften der Metalle sowie die... more...

  • Thermomechanics of Composite Structures under High Temperaturesby Yu. I. Dimitrienko

    Springer Netherlands 2016; US$ 179.00

    Thispioneering book presents new models for the thermomechanical behavior ofcomposite materials and structures taking into account internalphysico-chemical transformations such as thermodecomposition, sublimation andmelting at high temperatures (up to 3000 K). It is of great importance forthe design of new thermostable materials and for the investigation... 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...

  • Theory of Reflectionby John Lekner

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 179.00

    This book deals with the reflection of electromagnetic and particle waves by interfaces. The interfaces can be sharp or diffuse. The topics of the book contain absorption, inverse problems, anisotropy, pulses and finite beams, rough surfaces, matrix methods, numerical methods,  reflection of particle waves and neutron reflection. Exact general results... more...
