Nuclear Physics

  • Wireless-Wise Familiesby Lyn McLean

    Scribe Publications Pty Ltd 2017; US$ 14.99

    We love them, we depend on them, we fill our homes with them — but how much do you know about mobile phones and other wireless devices and the radiation they emit? Did you know, for example, that your use of wireless devices can affect your children, your unborn children, and even your chances of conceiving? That wireless radiation has been shown... more...

  • Grundlagen der Strahlungsphysik und des Strahlenschutzesby Hanno Krieger

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2017; US$ 60.22

    Die bewährte Einführung vermittelt physikalische, biologische und rechtliche Grundlagen der Strahlungsphysik und des Strahlenschutzes auf dem neuesten Stand. Für den praktischen Gebrauch enthält das Buch einen ausführlichem Formel- und Tabellenanhang. Zahlreiche Übungsaufgaben helfen, den Lehrstoff weiter zu vertiefen. more...

  • First Measurement of Neutrino and Antineutrino Oscillation at T2Kby Kirsty Elizabeth Duffy

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 103.92

    This thesis reports the measurement of muon neutrino and antineutrino disappearance and electron neutrino and antineutrino appearance in a muon neutrino and antineutrino beam using the T2K experiment. It describes a result in neutrino physics that is a pioneering indication of charge-parity (CP) violation in neutrino oscillation; the first to be obtained... more...

  • Amperometric and Impedance Monitoring Systems for Biomedical Applicationsby Jaime Punter-Villagrasa; Jordi Colomer-Farrarons; Francisco J. del Campo; Pere Miribel

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 107.50

    The book presents the conception and realization of a pervasive electronic architecture for electrochemical applications, focusing on electronic instrumentation design and device development, particularly in electrochemical Point-of-Care and Lab-on-a-Chip devices, covering examples based on amperometric (DC) and impedance detection (AC) techniques.... more...

  • Plasma Physicsby Alexander Piel

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 89.58

    The enlarged new edition of this textbook provides a comprehensive introduction to the basic processes in plasmas and demonstrates that the same fundamental concepts describe cold gas-discharge plasmas, space plasmas, and hot fusion plasmas. Starting from particle drifts in magnetic fields, the principles of magnetic confinement fusion are explained... more...

  • Farm Hall and the German Atomic Project of World War IIby David C. Cassidy

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 29.85

    This gripping book brings back to life the events surrounding the internment of ten German Nuclear Scientists immediately after World War II. It is also an "eye-witness" account of the dawning of the nuclear age, with the dialogue and narrative spanning the period before, during and after atomic bombs were dropped on Japan at the end of the war. This... more...

  • Introduction to Accelerator Dynamicsby Stephen Peggs; Todd Satogata

    Cambridge University Press 2017; US$ 64.00

    An introductory text covering the important field of accelerator physics, including collision and beam dynamics, and engineering considerations for particle accelerators. more...

  • Higgs Properties at the LHCby Jason Tsz Shing Yue

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 83.61

    This thesis studies the properties of the Higgs particle, discovered at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in 2012, in order to elucidate its role in electroweak symmetry breaking and cosmological phase transition in the early universe. It shows that a generic spin-2 Higgs impostor is excluded by the precision measurements of electroweak observables and... more...

  • Brain-Computer Interface Researchby Christoph Guger; Brendan Allison; Mikhail Lebedev

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 51.36

    This book presents compact and informative descriptions of the most promising new projects in brain-computer interface (BCI) research. As in earlier volumes in this series, the contributions come from many of the best-known groups in BCI research. Each of these chapters provides an overview of a project that was nominated for the most prestigious... more...

  • Particle Interactions in High-Temperature Plasmasby Oliver James Pike

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 103.92

    This thesis makes two important contributions to plasma physics. The first is the extension of the seminal theoretical works of Spitzer and Braginskii, which describe the basics of particle interactions in plasma, to relativistic systems. Relativistic plasmas have long been studied in high-energy astrophysics and are becoming increasingly attainable... more...
