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
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.
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.
Practical Radiobiology for Proton Therapy Planning covers the principles, advantages and potential pitfalls that occur in proton therapy, especially its radiobiological modelling applications. This book is intended to educate, inform and to stimulate further research questions. Additionally, it will help proton therapy centres when designing new treatments or when unintended errors or delays occur. The clear descriptions of useful equations for high LET particle beam applications, worked examples of many important clinical situations, and discussion of how proton therapy may be optimized are all important features of the text. This important book blends the relevant physics, biology and medical aspects of this multidisciplinary subject.
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.
Models of magnetism have been pivotal in the understanding and advancement of science and technology. The book is the first one to cover the field as a whole, complementing a rich literature on specific models of magnetism. It is written in an easily accessible style, with a limited amount of mathematics, and covers a wide range of phenomena.
This book presents latest research results on synthesis and application of metallic nanomaterials. Fabrication techniques, analytic properties, as well as theoretical aspects are discussed. Size- and shape-controlled synthesis of silver, gold, copper, ruthenium, tellurium, selenium and palladium nanoparticles are reviewed. Further topics are the synthesis from microplasma and shape-control for...
In recent years there has been a growing interest in the study of foams amongst physicists. This book provides an accessible, informal introduction to the subject for researchers in physics, engineering, and mathematics. Theory and experiment are described together at every stage, and a guide to further reading is provided making this a complete and coherent introduction to the area.
Phenomena of Optical Metamaterials provides an overview of phenomena enabled by artificial and designed metamaterials and their application for photonic devices. The book explores the study of active metamaterials with tunable and switchable properties and novel functionalities, such as the control of spontaneous emission and enhancement. Topics addressed cover theory, modelling and design,...
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...
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.
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.
This volume serves as a problem text to accompany the book Advanced Structural Inorganic Chemistry (Oxford University Press, 2008). It may also be used as a supplement for a variety of inorganic chemistry courses at the senior undergraduate level.
Organic and hybrid materials have become very important resources, as they are utilized in different areas, e.g. photovoltaic devices, displays, light-emitting diodes, etc. Organic Materials provides a detailed overview and discussion on the synthesis, characterization and processing techniques of materials as well as their functionality and applications for graduate students and researchers new...
