Great Solid State Physicists of the 20th Century by Julio A. Gonzalo, Carmen Arago Lopez

By Julio A. Gonzalo, Carmen Arago Lopez

The 20 th Century has been referred to as the Century of Physics. it may be much more acceptable to name it the Century of stable country Physics. the entire technological advancements which had replaced the area through the top of the century have been established upon earlier medical advancements in good nation Physics.

The Braggs, Debye, Bardeen, Landau have been definitely on the vanguard of all these innovative alterations.

Anomalous Effects in Simple Metals by Albert Overhauser, Gene Dresselhaus

By Albert Overhauser, Gene Dresselhaus

Utilizing potassium for instance, this paintings offers a different method of the anomalous results in metals, leading to wisdom that may be utilized to related fabrics.
so much theoretical predictions at the electrical, magnetic, optical, and thermal houses of an easy steel do ? strangely ? no longer trust experimental habit present in alkali metals. the aim of this quantity is to record the various phenomena that experience violated expectancies. It collects in a single position the study via Albert Overhauser, one of many pioneers of the sphere. His and his collaborators paintings has ended in a unified synthesis of alkali steel peculiarities. the original selection of sixty five reprint papers, commented the place essential to clarify the context and standpoint, is preceded by means of a radical and good paced introduction.
The ebook is intended to complicated reliable country physics and technology historians.
it might probably additionally function extra studying in complicated stable country physics courses.
With a foreword through Mildred and Gene Dresselhaus

Surfaces and Interfaces of Solid Materials by Professor Dr. Hans Lüth (auth.)

By Professor Dr. Hans Lüth (auth.)

Surfaces and Interfaces of Solids emphasises either experimental and theoretical points of floor and interface physics. Beside the strategies of getting ready well-defined stable surfaces and interfaces easy types for the outline of structural, vibronic and digital homes of interfaces are defined, in addition to primary points of adsorption and layer development. as a result of its significance for contemporary microelectronics unique emphasis is put on the digital houses of semiconductor interfaces and heterostructures. Experimental subject matters overlaying the fundamentals of ultrahigh-vacuum expertise, electron optics, floor spectroscopies and electric interface characterization thoughts are provided within the type of separate panels.

The physics of superconductors. Introduction to fundamentals by Schmidt V.V.

By Schmidt V.V.

This contemporary creation to the physics of superconductors was once edited via Paul Müller, (Walter Schottky Award for Solid-state examine) and Alexey V. Ustinov, either on the college of Erlangen. The revised and enlarged textual content is predicated on a lecture direction given by way of V.V. Schmidt on the Moscow Institute of metal and Alloys. It presents a contemporary therapy of the physics of superconductors with specified recognition paid to the actual interpretation of the phenomena. This English version has been enlarged by means of the inclusion of such new advancements as high-temperature superconductivity, and, as such, is the main updated textbook to be had at the topic. various issues of strategies aid the scholar to familiarize yourself with this box.

Room-Temperature Superconductivity by Andrei Mourachkine

By Andrei Mourachkine

This is the 1st booklet with reference to room-temperature superconductivity. the most function of the e-book is twofold. First, to teach that, lower than appropriate stipulations, superconductivity can ensue above room temperature. moment, to offer basic guidance the best way to synthesize a room-temperature superconductor. The booklet starts off with an advent into the physics of the superconducting nation and superconducting fabrics. Then, the mechanisms of traditional, half-conventional and unconventional superconductivity are mentioned within the following chapters. The final 3 chapters of the booklet are dedicated to room-temperature superconductivity. In bankruptcy 2, an try to overview the fundamental homes of the superconducting nation independently of any particular mechanism is made for the 1st time. additionally, 4 ideas of superconductivity legitimate for any kind of superconductivity are brought in bankruptcy four.

Handbook of solvents by George Wypych

By George Wypych

This e-book used to be written by way of a bunch of specialists on a variety of matters of solvents’ use, the elemental rules governing their software, influence on healthiness and setting, residual solvents in items, their focus in commercial environments, present rules, more secure substitutes, non-emitting applied sciences of use, illness cleanup, own defense, and the main smooth tendencies in destiny know-how. The authors, who're the contributors of prestigious universities and industries from all over the world, altogether have formerly written forty seven books and 1000s of papers at the topic and the following they offer a synthesis in their stories and evaluations on how top to alter the worldwide use of solvents that allows you to receive merits of know-how and whilst restrict probability and future health results, and extra.

All 25 chapters of this e-book have been written among summer season of 1999 and spring of 2000 and comprise over 5000 references to resource literature, allowing the person to discover particular details on any topic comparable to solvents. The textual content is illustrated via figures and tables which evaluate in quantity with multi-volume encyclopedias.

The booklet encompasses a synthesis of a big pattern of information and info to bare basic rules which facts helped to realize. the particular information on 1141 solvents are within the kind of a searchable database on CD-ROM (see separate details on Database of Solvents, ISBN 1985198259). The database includes a hundred and ten different types of knowledge (fields) and virtually 40,000 unmarried info entries, making it the greatest extant database on solvents.

Mesoscopic Physics of Complex Materials by T. S. Chow (auth.)

By T. S. Chow (auth.)

This publication is meant to supply a cross-disciplinary learn of the actual prop­ erties of complicated fluids, solids, and interfaces as a functionality in their mesoscopic buildings. end result of the illness and fritter away nature of those constructions, em­ phasis is put on nonequilibrium phenomena. those phenomena are the energetic learn parts of soppy condensed subject, and it's very unlikely to hide all of them in a single ebook. hence, we now have constrained the scope by way of determining quite a few vital present platforms that (l) current excessive values to either technological know-how and know-how at the foundation of my very own choice and services and (2) haven't been prepare coherently within the type of a ebook. We then convey the underlying connections and parallels among themes as different as severe phenomena in colloidal dynamics, glass nation leisure and deformation, strengthened polymer composites, molecular point blending in nanocomposites, and microscopic interactions of tough surfaces and interfaces. whilst, each one bankruptcy is designed to be without delay available to readers, and the necessity for facing the former chapters has been stored to the minimal. it's a quite brief booklet that isn't designed to check all the fresh paintings that spans many disciplines. in its place, we try to set up a common framework for the basic knowing and the sensible improvement of recent fabrics that can not be designed through the trial-and-error methods.

Soft interfaces: the 1994 Dirac memorial lecture by Pierre Gilles de Gennes

By Pierre Gilles de Gennes

Paul Adrien Maurice Dirac, one of many maximum physicists of the 20th century, died in 1984. Dirac's collage, St. John's of Cambridge, generously endowed annual lectures to be held at Cambridge collage in his reminiscence. This quantity incorporates a a lot elevated model of the 1994 Dirac Lecture via Nobel Laureate Pierre Gilles de Gennes. The e-book offers an impressionistic journey of the physics of sentimental interfaces. packed with perception and fascinating asides, it not just presents an obtainable creation to this subject, but additionally lays down many markers and signposts that may be of curiosity to researchers in physics or chemistry. gains discussions of wetting and dewetting, the dynamics of alternative forms of interface and adhesion and polymer/polymer welding.
