Graphite Intercalation Compounds and Applications

Graphite Intercalation Compounds and Applications Lowest new price: $54.00
Lowest used price: $48.21
List price: $215.00
Author: Toshiaki Enoki

Graphite intercalation compounds are a new class of electronic materials that are classified as graphite-based host guest systems. They have specific structural features based on the alternating stacking of graphite and guest intercalate sheets. The electronic structures show two-dimensional metallic properties with a large variety of features including superconductivity. They are also interesting from the point of two-dimensional magnetic systems. This book presents the synthesis, crystal structures, phase transitions, lattice dynamics, electronic structures, electron transport properties, magnetic properties, surface phenomena, and applications of graphite intercalation compounds. The applications covered include batteries, highly conductive graphite fibers, exfoliated graphite and intercalated fullerenes and nanotubes.

techniques, and raises new issues of physical interpretation as well as possibilities for deepening the theory. (3) Barut contributes a comprehensive review of his own ambitious program in electron theory and quantum electrodynamics. Barut's work is rich with ingenious ideas, and the interest it provokes among other theorists can be seen in the cri tique by Grandy. Cooperstock takes a much different approach to nonlinear field-electron coupling which leads him to conclusions about the size of the electron. (4) Capri and Bandrauk work within the standard framework of quantum electrodynamics. Bandrauk presents a valuable review of his theoretical approach to the striking new photoelectric phenomena in high intensity laser experiments. (5) Jung proposes a theory to merge the ideas of free-free transitions and of scattering chaos, which is becoming increasingly important in the theoretical analysis of nonlinear optical phenomena. For the last half century the properties of electrons have been probed primarily by scattering experiments at ever higher energies. Recently, however, two powerful new experimental techniques have emerged capable of giving alternative experimental views of the electron. We refer to (1) the confinement of single electrons for long term study, and (2) the interaction of electrons with high intensity laser fields. Articles by outstanding practitioners of both techniques are included in Part II of these Proceedings. The precision experiments on trapped electrons by the Washington group quoted above have already led to a Nobel prize for the most accurate measurements of the electron magnetic moment.

Flash of the Cathode Rays: A History of J J Thomson's Electron

Flash of the Cathode Rays: A History of J J Thomson's Electron Lowest new price: $69.10
Lowest used price: $5.65
List price: $115.00
Author: Per F. Dahl

The electron is fundamental to almost all aspects of modern life, controlling the behavior of atoms and how they bind together to form gases, liquids, and solids. Flash of the Cathode Rays: A History of J.J. Thomson's Electron presents the compelling story of the discovery of the electron and its role as the first subatomic particle in nature. The book traces the evolution of the concept of electrical charge, from the earliest glow discharge studies to the final cathode ray and oil drop experiments of J.J. Thomson and Robert Millikan. It also provides an overview of the history of modern physics up to the advent of the old quantum theory around 1920.

Consolidating scholarly material while incorporating new material discovered by the well-respected author, the book covers the continental and English race for the source of the cathode rays, culminating in Thomson's corpuscle in 1897. It explores the events leading to Millikan's unambiguous isolation of the electron and the simultaneous circumstances surrounding the birth of Ernest Rutherford's nuclear atom and the discovery of radioactivity in 1896. The author also focuses on the controversies over N-rays, Becquerel's positive electron, and the famous Ehrenhaft-Millikan dispute over subelectrons.

Scholarly yet accessible to those with basic physics knowledge, this book should be of interest to historians of science, professional scientists and engineers, teachers and students of physics, and general readers interested in the development of modern physics.


Electron Correlation Dynamics in Atomic Collisions (Cambridge Monographs on Atomic, Molecular and Chemical Physics)

Electron Correlation Dynamics in Atomic Collisions (Cambridge Monographs on Atomic, Molecular and Chemical Physics) Lowest new price: $65.50
Lowest used price: $5.91
List price: $183.99
Author: J. H. McGuire
Brand: Brand: Cambridge University Press

This graduate/research level text introduces the theory of multi-electron transitions in atomic, molecular and optical physics, emphasizing the emerging topic of dynamic electron correlation. The book begins with an overview of simple binomial probabilities, classical scattering theory, quantum scattering and correlation, followed by the theory of single electron transition probabilities. Multiple electron transition probabilities are then treated in detail. Various approaches to multiple electron transitions are covered including the independent electron approximation, useful statistical methods and perturbation expansions treating correlation in both weak and strong limits. The dynamics of electron correlation are strongly emphasized. The text contains a comprehensive summary of data for few and many-electron transitions in atoms and molecules, including transitions on different atomic centers, fast ion-atom and electron-atom interactions, and recent observations using synchrotron radiation. Emphasis is given to methods that may be used by nonspecialists.

Author: Eugene S. Kryachko
Brand: Brand: Springer

I would like to present to a wide circle of the readers working in quantum chem­ istry and solid-state physics, as ,,·ell as in other fields of many-body physics and its interfaces, this book deyoted to density functional theory written by my colleagues Eugene S. Kryachko and Eduardo Y. Ludena. Their ways to this theory are rather different although basically both of them are quantum chemical. Eugene S. Kryachko came to energy density functional theory from the theory of reduced density matrices, and Eduardo \'. Ludena dewloped earlier the concept of loges in quantum chemistry. Neyertheless, their earlier interests giw the possibility to consolidate and formulate energy density functional theory in a unified and consistent way, in my opinion.

Electron-Positron Physics at the Z (Studies in High Energy Physics, Cosmology, and Gravitation)

Electron-Positron Physics at the Z (Studies in High Energy Physics, Cosmology, and Gravitation) Lowest used price: $73.95
List price: $153.00
Author: P. N. Ratoff

This book provides a comprehensive summary of studies of the Z boson in electron positron interactions. The results that have been obtained have achieved unprecedented accuracy and have firmly established the Electroweak Standard Model as the cornerstone of our current understanding of modern particle physics. The book introduces the background to the Standard Model and the role of the Z boson and describes briefly the accelerators and experiments involved in these results.
The five main chapters deal with the detailed measurements of the electroweak parameters of the Z, the study of QCD, heavy quark physics, tau lepton physics and the search for new particles. Each chapter ends with a summary and outlook to prospects of future accelerators. Most of the results are from the first six years running at the first phase of electron positron collider, LEP, at energies corresponding to the Z mass, but results from the SLAC Linear Collider and some new results at higher energies are also included.

J.J. Thompson And The Discovery Of The Electron Lowest new price: $366.81
Lowest used price: $116.94
List price: $54.95
Author: E. A. Davis

This historical survey of the discovery of the electron has been published to coincide with the centenary of the discovery. The text maps the life and achievements of J.J. Thomson, with particular focus on his ideas and experiments leading to the discovery. It describes Thomson's early years and education. It then considers his career at Cambridge, first as a fellow of Trinity, later as the head of the Cavendish Laboratory and finally as Master of Trinity and national spokesman for science. The core of the book is concerned with the work undertaken at the Cavendish, culminating in the discovery of "corpuscles", later named "electrons".; In the final two chapters, the immediate aftermath and implications of the work are described. These include the creation of the subject of atomic physics as well as the broader long term developments which can be traced from vacuum valves and the transistor through to the microelectronics revolution.
