The Quantum Beat: Principles and Applications of Atomic Clocks

The Quantum Beat: Principles and Applications of Atomic Clocks Lowest new price: $46.42
Lowest used price: $46.39
List price: $109.00
Author: Fouad G. Major
Brand: Fouad G Major

This edition retains the essentially didactic approach to the treatment of the development of atomic clocks in the first edition, but brings up to date the extraordinary developments in recent years, culminating in clocks based on quantum resonance at optical frequency in individual ions confined in miniature electromagnetic traps.

Atomic Inner-Shell Physics (Physics of Atoms and Molecules)

Atomic Inner-Shell Physics (Physics of Atoms and Molecules) Lowest new price: $300.70
Lowest used price: $99.50
List price: $99.00
Author: Bernd Crasemann

The physics of atomic inner shells has undergone significant advances in recent years. Fast computers and new experimental tools, notably syn­ chrotron-radiation sources and heavy-ion accelerators, have greatly enhan­ ced the scope of problems that are accessible. The level of research activity is growing substantially; added incentives are provided by the importance of inner-shell processes in such diverse areas as plasma studies, astrophysics, laser technology, biology, medicine, and materials science. The main reason for all this exciting activity in atomic inner-shell physics, to be sure, lies in the significance of the fundamental problems that are coming within grasp. The large energies of many inner-shell processes cause relativistic and quantum-electrodynamic effects to become strong. Unique opportunities exist for delicate tests of such phenomena as the screening of the electron self-energy and the limits of validity of the present form of the frequency-dependent Breit interaction, to name but two. The many-body problem, which pervades virtually all of physics, presents somewhat less intractable aspects in the atomic inner-shell regime: correlations are relatively weak so that they can be treated perturbatively, and the basic potential is simple and known! The dynamics of inner-shell processes are characterized by exceedingly short lifetimes and high transition rates that strain perturbation theory to its limits and obliterate the traditional separation of excitation and deexcitation. These factors are only now being explored, as are interference phenomena between the various channels.

Author: Efthimios Kaxiras
Brand: Brand: Cambridge University Press

This graduate textbook designed for students in physics, chemistry and materials science provides a modern treatment of the theory of solids dealing with the physics of electron and phonon states in crystals and how they determine the structure and properties of solids. The first part of the book deals with electrons and atoms in a crystal, and the second part extends the discussion to defects in crystals and to structures without crystalline symmetry. There are numerous exercises throughout and appendices to provide the necessary background.

Atomic and Molecular Beam Methods: Volume 2

Atomic and Molecular Beam Methods: Volume 2 Lowest new price: $173.08
Lowest used price: $18.18
List price: $169.50

This is the second volume of an advanced handbook on experimental molecular beam methods. As a continuation of the first volume, which covered general beam techniques and molecular beam scattering, the second volume covers beam spectroscopy and surface scattering. Both volumes, together or separately, can be used both as a reference book in the laboratory and as a supplementary text in graduate courses in chemical dynamics, spectroscopy and gas-surface interactions. In the present volume, the section on spectroscopy deals mainly with beam-laser interactions, but Fourier transform methods are covered as well. While the section on surface scattering deals primarily with crystalline surfaces, a separate chapter presents material on disordered surfaces. The emphasis of the book is on experimental methods, including data analysis and calibrations. However, the theory underlying the most common measurements is also presented to allow for the understanding of the numerous examples provided. Topics such as sub-doppler spectroscopy, photodissociation, molecular beam-masers, inelastic and reactive gas-surface collisions and others are discussed in detail. The text continues the study begun in Volume One, which focused on general beam technology and gas-gas scattering.

Models and Modelers of Hydrogen

Models and Modelers of Hydrogen Lowest new price: $86.13
Lowest used price: $62.60
List price: $87.00

Atomic theory began more than two and a half millenia ago in Greece and India; but scientific details have emerged — albeit very rapidly — only in our century. This book conveys a glimpse of the grandeur of 20th century physics through nine essays and one interview on the models and modelers of a basic element of matter: the hydrogen atom. The basic ideas are simply presented and illustrated, the mathematical treatments are of a tutorial nature, and facsimile reproductions of ten key papers are included. Using the simple hydrogen atom, educators may use this book to initiate high school students into the grandeur of physics or motivate university students to become science-literate.
