Spectroscopy & Spectrum Analysis

  • Ultrafast Strong Field Dynamics in Dielectricsby Annkatrin Madlen Sommer

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 129.00

    This thesis presents a systematic discussion of experimental approaches to investigating the nonlinear interaction of ultrashort visible strong fields with dielectrics directly in the time domain. The key finding is the distinctly different peak-intensity dependence of the light-matter energy transfer dynamics on the one hand, and the observed transient... more...

  • Ion Beam Modification of Solidsby Werner Wesch; Elke Wendler

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 229.00

    This book presents the method of ion beam modification of solids in realization, theory and applications in a comprehensive way. It provides a review of the physical basics of ion-solid interaction and on ion-beam induced structural modifications of solids. Ion beams are widely used to modify the physical properties of materials. A complete theory... more...

  • Mechanical Properties of Polymers Measured through AFM Force-Distance Curvesby Brunero Cappella

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 129.00

    This Springer Laboratory volume is a practical guide for scientists and students dealing with the measurement of mechanical properties of polymers at the nanoscale through AFM force-distance curves. In the first part of the book the reader will find a theoretical introduction about atomic force microscopy, focused on force-distance curves, and mechanical... more...

  • Basic Physics of Functionalized Graphiteby Pablo D. Esquinazi

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 129.00

    This book summarizes the basic physics of graphite and newly discovered phenomena in this material. The book contains the knowledge needed to understand novel properties of functionalized graphite demonstrating the occurrence of remarkable phenomena in disordered graphite and graphite-based heterostructures. It also discusses applications of thin graphitic... more...

  • Electronic Properties of Organic Conductorsby Takehiko Mori

    Springer Japan 2016; US$ 179.00

    This book provides an easily understandable introduction to solid state physics for chemists and engineers. Band theory is introduced as an extension of molecular orbital theory, and its application to organic materials is described. Phenomena beyond band theory are treated in relation to magnetism and electron correlation, which are explained in... more...

  • Nanoscale Imaging and Characterisation of Amyloid-?by Claire Louisa Tinker-Mill

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 129.00

    This thesis presents a method for reliably and robustly producing samples of amyloid-? (A?) by capturing them at various stages of aggregation, as well as the results of subsequent imaging with various atomic force microscopy (AFM) methods, all of which add value to the data gathered by collecting information on the peptide?s nanomechanical, elastic,... more...

  • THz Technology Applied to Cultural Heritage in Practiceby Kaori Fukunaga

    Springer Japan 2016; US$ 99.00

    This book describes the current, concrete status of terahertz (THz) technology applied to scientific diagnoses of cultural heritage objects for conservation planning as well as for historical interest. It is unlike other THz-related scientific books in optics series, which only describe technologies and the physics behind them. A new method utilizing... more...

  • Physical Principles of Electron Microscopyby R.F. Egerton

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 89.99

    This book introduces current theory and practice of electron microscopy, primarily for undergraduates, as well as for technologists who use electron microscopes and to graduate students, university teachers and researchers who need a concise reference on the basic principles of microscopy. more...

  • Kinetics and Spectroscopy of Low Temperature Plasmasby Jorge Loureiro; Jayr Amorim

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 99.00

    This is a comprehensive textbook designed forgraduate and advanced undergraduate students. Both authors rely on more than 20years of teaching experience in renowned Physics Engineering courses to writethis book addressing the students? needs. Kinetics and Spectroscopy of Low Temperature Plasmasderives in a full self-consistent way the electron kinetic... more...

  • Angle-Resolved Photoemission Spectroscopy on High-Temperature Superconductorsby Junfeng He

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2016; US$ 129.00

    This book mainly focuses on the study of the high-temperature superconductor Bi2Sr2CaCu2O8+? (Bi2212) and single-layer FeSe film grown on SrTiO3 (STO) substrate by means of angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy (ARPES). It provides the first electronic evidence for the origin of the anomalous high-temperature superconductivity in single-layer... more...
