Author: Robert B. Laughlin

A Nobel-winning physicist argues that fundamental physical laws are found not in the world of atoms, but in the macroscopic world around us

In this age of superstring theories and Big Bang cosmology, we're used to thinking of the unknown as impossibly distant from our everyday lives. But in A Different Universe, Nobel Laureate Robert Laughlin argues that the scientific frontier is right under our fingers. Instead of looking for ultimate theories, Laughlin considers the world of emergent properties-meaning the properties, such as the hardness and shape of a crystal, that result from the organization of large numbers of atoms. Laughlin shows us how the most fundamental laws of physics are in fact emergent. A Different Universe is a truly mind-bending book that shows us why everything we think about fundamental physical laws needs to change.

Computational Explorations in Magnetron Sputtering

Computational Explorations in Magnetron Sputtering Lowest new price: $19.00
Lowest used price: $36.23
List price: $19.00
Author: E. J. McInerney

Magnetron Sputtering is a widely used industrial process for depositing thin films. PVD films are found in everything from the moisture barriers in potato chip bags to the interconnects of modern semiconductor devices. This book walks you through the physics of Magnetron Sputtering in a step-by-step fashion. Starting with the magnetic fields crucial to efficient operation, the book then looks at the electric fields that power the sputter process, the motion of electrons in the plasma, target erosion and finally deposition. The reader is encouraged to explore this fascinating topic by actively following along. A series of simple computer models is developed, ultimately leading to predictive models of target erosion and deposition uniformity. By working through these models, readers can build their intuition of PVD processes and develop a deeper appreciation of the underlying physics.

Statistical Mechanics of Superconductivity (Graduate Texts in Physics)

Statistical Mechanics of Superconductivity (Graduate Texts in Physics) Lowest new price: $64.34
Lowest used price: $64.30
List price: $84.99
Author: Takafumi Kita

This book provides a theoretical, step-by-step comprehensive explanation of superconductivity for undergraduate and graduate students who have completed elementary courses on thermodynamics and quantum mechanics. To this end, it adopts the unique approach of starting with the statistical mechanics of quantum ideal gases and successively adding and clarifying elements and techniques indispensible for understanding it. They include the spin-statistics theorem, second quantization, density matrices, the Bloch–De Dominicis theorem, the variational principle in statistical mechanics, attractive interaction and bound states. Ample examples of their usage are also provided in terms of topics from advanced statistical mechanics such as two-particle correlations of quantum ideal gases, derivation of the Hartree–Fock equations, and Landau’s Fermi-liquid theory, among others. With these preliminaries, the fundamental mean-field equations of superconductivity are derived with maximum mathematical clarity based on a coherent state in terms of the Cooper-pair creation operator, a quasiparticle field for describing the excitation and the variational principle in statistical mechanics. They have the advantage that the phase coherence due to the Cooper-pair condensation can be clearly seen making the superfluidity comprehensible naturally. Subsequently, they are applied to homogeneous cases to describe the BCS theory for classic s-wave superconductors and its extension to the p-wave superfluidity of 3He. Later, the mean-field equations are simplified to the Eilenberger and Ginzburg–Landau equations so as to describe inhomogeneous superconductivity such as Abrikosov’s flux-line lattice concisely and transparently. Chapters provide the latest studies on the quasiclassical theory of superconductivity and a discovery of p-wave superfluidity in liquid 3He. The book serves as a standard reference for advanced courses of statistical mechanics with exercises along with detailed answers.

Review Guide for the NABCEP Entry-Level Exam (Art and Science of Photovoltaics) Lowest new price: $56.09
Lowest used price: $49.95
List price: $93.95
Author: John R. Balfour

The solar energy industry is growing and so is the demand for skilled and certified photovoltaic professionals. The NABCEP Entry-Level PV Exam ensures and reinforces that the professional has attained the basic knowledge of the fundamental concepts of PV system design, installation, and operation. Review Guide for the NABCEP Entry-Level Exam provides students with the information they need to successfully pass the exam. The organization of the text parallels that of the major exam sections and includes the essential concepts and principles that are covered on the exam.

Review Guide for the NABCEP Entry-Level Exam is the stepping-stone resource for PV students to launch their career in the thriving photovoltaic industry.

About the Series:

The Photovoltaics (PV) industry stands on the brink of a revolution. The appeal of a new and growing industry has brought an influx of new PV professionals to the market, but the availability of educational resources has not kept pace with market demands. This gap has led to serious quality and performance issues that the industry will need to face in the decades ahead.

The Art and Science of Photovoltaics series was developed to fill this education gap. Each book in the series goes beyond simple systematic processes by tackling performace challenges using a systems perspective. Readers do not learn PV design and installation steps in a vacuum; instead they gain the knowledge and expertise to understand interrelationships and discover new ways to improve their own systems and positively contribute to the industry.
