  • Molecular Plasmonicsby Wolfgang Fritzsche; Marc Lamy de la Chapelle

    Wiley 2014; US$ 145.00 US$ 130.50

    Adopting a novel approach, this book provides a unique "molecular perspective" on plasmonics, concisely presenting the fundamentals and applications in a way suitable for beginners entering this hot field as well as for experienced researchers and practitioners. It begins by introducing readers to the optical effects that occur at the nanoscale and... more...

  • Plasmonic Biosensorsby A.B. Dahlin

    IOS Press 2012; US$ 196.00

    In this book Andreas Dahlin has written a comprehensive and thorough review of plasmonic biosensors that operate by refractometric detection. After an introductory chapter on biosensors, in which he sets out the concepts of biosensing in its application to such areas as proteomics, medical diagnostics and environmental control, he undertakes an integrated... more...

  • Introduction to Metal-Nanoparticle Plasmonicsby Matthew Pelton; Garnett W. Bryant

    Wiley 2013; US$ 118.00 US$ 106.20

    Based on a popular article in Laser and Photonics Reviews , this book provides an explanation and overview of the techniques used to model, make, and measure metal nanoparticles, detailing results obtained and what they mean. It covers the properties of coupled metal nanoparticles, the nonlinear optical response of metal nanoparticles, and the phenomena... more...

  • Die Kunst of Phononsby T. Paszkiewicz; K. Rapcewicz

    Springer US 2013; US$ 41.59

    Phonons: General: Recent Progress in Using the Effective Potential Method (G.K. Horton, E.R. Cowley). Momentum and Quasimomentum in the Physics of Condensed Matter (A. Thellung). Phonon Focusing: Phonon Imaging at Ultrasonic Frequencies (A.G. Every). Nonequilibrium Phonons: Timedependent Specific Heat of Crystals and Glasses at Low Temperatures... more...

  • Handbook of Molecular Plasmonicsby Fabio Della Sala; Stefania D'Agostino

    CRC Press 2013; US$ 57.95

    While several reviews and books on surface nanophotonics and fluorescence spectroscopy are available, an updated focus on molecular plasmonics, including both theoretical methods and experimental aspects, is still lacking. This handbook is a comprehensive overview on the physics of the plasmon–emitter interaction, ranging from electromagnetism to... more...

  • Length-Scale Dependent Phonon Interactionsby Subhash L. Shindé; Gyaneshwar P. Srivastava

    Springer New York 2013; US$ 138.14

    This book presents a comprehensive description of phonons and their interactions in systems with different dimensions and length scales. Internationally-recognized leaders describe theories and measurements of phonon interactions in relation to the design of materials with exotic properties such as metamaterials, nano-mechanical systems, next-generation... more...

  • Introduction to Phonons and Electronsby Liang-fu Lou

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2003; US$ 42.00 US$ 38.22

    This book focuses on phonons and electrons, which the student needs to learn first in solid state physics. The required quantum theory and statistical physics are derived from scratch. Systematic in structure and tutorial in style, the treatment is filled with detailed mathematical steps and physical interpretations. This approach ensures a self-sufficient... more...

  • Nanophotonics with Surface Plasmonsby Vladimir M. Shalaev; Satoshi Kawata

    Elsevier Science 2006; US$ 165.00

    Current developments in optical technologies are being directed toward nanoscale devices with subwavelength dimensions, in which photons are manipulated on the nanoscale. Although light is clearly the fastest means to send information to and from the nanoscale, there is a fundamental incompatibility between light at the microscale and devices and processes... more...

  • Plasmonics: Fundamentals and Applicationsby Stefan Alexander Maier

    Springer US 2007; US$ 126.63

    Considered one of the major fields of photonics of the beginning 21 st century, plasmonics offers the potential to confine and guide light below the diffraction limit and promises a new generation of highly miniaturized photonic devices. Offering both a comprehensive introduction to the field and an extensive overview of the current state of the... more...

  • Phase Transitions in Two-Dimensional Complex Plasmasby Christina A. Knapek

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2011; US$ 100.15

    This book details two experiments whose analysis makes an important contribution to understanding 2D complex plasmas: a determination of the coupling parameter and a characterization of the non-equilibrium recrystallization of a two-dimensional system. more...
