  • Dual-Mode Electro-photonic Silicon Biosensorsby José Juan Colás

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 99.71

    This highly interdisciplinary thesis reports on two innovative photonic biosensors that combine multiple simultaneous measurements to provide unique insights into the activity and structure of surface immobilized biological molecules. In addition, it presents a new silicon photonic biosensor that exploits two cascaded resonant sensors to provide two... more...

  • Werkstoffeby Erhard Hornbogen; Gunther Eggeler; Ewald Werner

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2017; US$ 38.53

    Das Standardwerk zur Werkstoffkunde erfährt seit über 40 Jahren regen Zuspruch. Ausgehend von einer einheitlichen werkstoffwissenschaftlichen Darstellung der Mikrostrukturen von Werkstoffen, ihren Bildungsbedingungen und den sich daraus ergebenden Stoffeigenschaften, werden die keramischen, metallischen sowie die Polymer- und Verbundwerkstoffe systematisch... more...

  • Theoretical Modeling of Organohalide Perovskites for Photovoltaic Applicationsby Giacomo Giorgi; Koichi Yamashita

    CRC Press 2017; US$ 150.00

    Perovskites are a class of recently discovered crystals with a multitude of innovative applications. In particular, a lead role is played by organic-inorganic halide perovskites (OIHPs) in solar devices. In 2013 Science and Nature selected perovskite solar cells as one of the biggest scientific breakthroughs of that year. This book provides the... more...

  • Recent Advances in Complex Functional Materialsby Elson Longo; Felipe de Almeida La Porta

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 194.85

    In this book we explore new approaches to understanding the physical and chemical properties of emergent complex functional materials, revealing a close relationship between their structures and properties at the molecular level. The primary focus of this book is on the ability to synthesize materials with a controlled chemical composition, a crystallographic... more...

  • Werkstoffkunde für Ingenieureby Eberhard Roos; Karl Maile; Michael Seidenfuß

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2017; US$ 28.89

    Nach einer Einführung in die Grundlagen der Werkstoffwissenschaft werden in diesem gut eingeführten Lehrbuch die Anwendungsaspekte der Werkstoffe behandelt. Insbesondere die mechanischen Eigenschaften und das Verhalten von Werkstoffgruppen unter unterschiedlichen Umgebungs- und Belastungsbedingungen werden erläutert. Ein besonderer Schwerpunkt liegt... more...

  • Molecular Spectroscopy, Second Editionby Jeanne L. McHale

    CRC Press 2017; US$ 89.95

    This textbook offers an introduction to the foundations of spectroscopic methods and provides a bridge between basic concepts and experimental applications in fields as diverse as materials science, biology, solar energy conversion, and environmental science. The author emphasizes the use of time-dependent theory to link the spectral response in the... more...

  • Molecular Architectonicsby Takuji Ogawa

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 342.73

    This book draws on the main themes covered during the International Workshop on Molecular Architectonics which took place in Shiretoko, Japan from August 3 to 6, 2015. The concepts and results explored in this book relate to the term “molecular architectonics” which stands for electronic, optical and information-processing functions being orchestrated... more...

  • Reactivity of Nitric Oxide on Copper Surfacesby Akitoshi Shiotari

    Springer Singapore 2017; US$ 99.71

    This book provides microscopic insights into chemical properties of NO on metal surfaces. NO/metal systems have been studied intensively to understand heterogeneous catalysis to detox exhaust NOx gas. The identification and componential analysis of various and mixed chemical species of NO adsorbed onto the surfaces have been significant challenges... more...

  • Ordering Phenomena in Rare-Earth Nickelate Heterostructuresby Matthias Hepting

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 99.71

    This thesis presents an experimental study of ordering phenomena in rare-earth nickelate-based heterostructures by means of inelastic Raman light scattering and elastic resonant x-ray scattering (RXS). Further, it demonstrates that the amplitude ratio of magnetic moments at neighboring nickel sites can be accurately determined by RXS in combination... more...

  • Metastable Glassy States Under External Perturbationsby Corrado Rainone

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 99.71

    This thesis presents a theoretical analysis of the behavior of glasses under external perturbations, i.e. compression and shear straining. Written in a pedagogical style, it explains every facet of the problem in detail, including many crucial steps that cannot be found in the existing literature—making it particularly useful for students and as an... more...
