In this book, author Gary Wysin provides an overview of model systems and their behaviour and effects, and is intended for advanced students and researchers in physics, chemistry and engineering interested in confined magnetics. It is also suitable as an auxiliary text in a class on magnetism or solid state physics. Previous physics knowledge is expected, along with some basic knowledge of classical electromagnetism and electromagnetic waves for the latter chapters.
Magnetic Excitations and Geometric Confinement Hardback edition by Gary Matthew Wysin
Renewable energy is a fast expanding field, welcomed by many as part of the answer to climate change and energy security concerns; but can renewables deliver? This book reviews the basic technological options and global implementation, so as to convey the sense of excitement that abounds in this new area of technological development, but it also looks at the problems, including technological, policy issues, local environmental impacts and the need to deal with the variability of some renewable energy sources.
Physics is fundamental to all aspects of digital photography. This book works through the photographic imaging chain starting from the physics of image capture through to the conversion of the raw data into a viewable image. The author's aim is to show how knowledge of the underlying physics can be used by a photographer or imaging scientist to maximise the technical quality of the final image. With the increasing use of digital photography in a research environment scientists and engineers need to better understand the science behind digital photography to fully exploit this tool in their research. As well as an academic readership, this book will be of interest to professional and serious amateur photographers wanting a better understanding of the technical aspects of digital photography.
Some Critical Questions in Biological Physics discusses eighteen key questions in biological physics, each forming independent chapters that will, by presenting the research in terms of key, unsolved problems, encourage interest in the field. It also provides useful reading for undergraduate physical scientists considering a career in this area.
Physics of Shock and Impact deals with the shock physics of solids with emphasis on impact applications that are brought about by intense energy stimulations. Comprising of two volumes this work covers physical, material, mechanical and thermodynamic fundamentals of shock physics. The various chapters also include a range of analytic solutions that address topics in the many applications involving shock physics. Volume 1, Fundamentals and Failure, provides an introduction to shocks and structured waves, before progressing to failure by fragmentation and shear localization in solids.
Through patenting and commercialization scientists today can develop their work beyond a publication in a learned journal. Indeed, universities and governments are encouraging today's scientists and engineers to break their fruits of their research out of the laboratory and into the commercial world. However, doing so is complicated and can be daunting for those more used to a research seminar than a board room. This book, written by experienced scientists and entrepreneurs, deals essentially with businesses started by scientists and based on innovation and sets out to clarify for scientists and engineers the steps necessary to take an idea along the path to commercialization and maximise the potential for success, regardless of the path taken.
Women physicistshave few peers or limited mentoring. Until now there has not been a book togive women advice on how to succeed in physics as a career and achieve a happyand balanced life. Including a broad range of issues that confidence buildingbut will cover a broad range of topics both person, technical and social.
This book presents a theoretical framework for magnetism in ferromagnetic metals and alloys at finite temperatures. The second objective of the book is to give an accurate and self-contained presentation of many-body techniques such as the functional integral method and Green's functions, via a number of worked examples.
The Physics of Semiconductors provides an overview of the subject for graduate and advanced undergraduate courses, enabling readers to begin supervised research on one specific topic. Readers will find a balance of the essential aspects of solid-state physics and the principles of semiconductor devices.
This book looks at the role of probability in modern science. Using the most exciting developments in fundamental physics as examples, it shows the centrality of uncertainty and incomplete knowledge. Written by an insider, and using non-technical language, it is an attempt to explain how science really works.
Understanding the concepts of solids, liquids, and gases is central to the early science curriculum. States of Matter uses simple text vetted by a science curriculum consultant and a reading consultant to introduce beginning readers to these important concepts. Each book features a strong photo-text match and clear, full-color diagrams to enhance comprehension, while the simple text builds vocabulary and reading skills.
Superfluidity and Superconductivity, Third Edition introduces the low-temperature phenomena of superfluidity and superconductivity from a unified viewpoint. The book stresses the existence of a macroscopic wave function as a central principle, presents an extensive discussion of macroscopic theories, and includes full descriptions of relevant experimental results throughout. This edition also...
Completely revised and updated, the second edition of the Handbook of Superconducting Materials is now available in three stand-alone volumes. As a whole they cover the depth and breadth of the field, drawing on an international pool of respected academics and industrial engineers. The three volumes provide hands-on guidance to the manufacturing and processing technologies associated with...
Neutron scattering has become a key technique for investigating the properties of materials on an atomic scale. The uniqueness of this method is based on the fact that the wavelength and energy of thermal neutrons ideally match interatomic distances and excitation energies in condensed matter, and thus neutron scattering is able to directly examine the static and dynamic properties of the...
Matter is made of something called Aether. This Aether is "potential matter" and it vibrates. We now know that the faster this Aether vibrates the larger, more complex the system is that represents matter. At its highest rate, matter becomes almost totally gravity and is called a black hole. This is the details about this more reasonable way of looking at our universe.
This book emphasizes how new generation materials discovered recently (like graphene and topological insulators) can be understood using simple Quantum Transport Theory. The book is aimed at the reader who is just starting research in Theoretical or Experimental Physics of Dirac Materials. It will act as a good guide laying a solid ground using examples and exercise. The book could also be used as...
