A Thorough Update of the Industry Classic on Principles of Plasma Processing

The first edition of Principles of Plasma Discharges and Materials Processing, published over a decade ago, was lauded for its complete treatment of both basic plasma physics and industrial plasma processing, quickly becoming the primary reference for students and professionals.

The Second Edition has been carefully updated and revised to reflect recent developments in the field and to further clarify the presentation of basic principles. Along with in-depth coverage of the fundamentals of plasma physics and chemistry, the authors apply basic theory to plasma discharges, including calculations of plasma parameters and the scaling of plasma parameters with control parameters.

New and expanded topics include:
* Updated cross sections
* Diffusion and diffusion solutions
* Generalized Bohm criteria
* Expanded treatment of dc sheaths
* Langmuir probes in time-varying fields
* Electronegative discharges
* Pulsed power discharges
* Dual frequency discharges
* High-density rf sheaths and ion energy distributions
* Hysteresis and instabilities
* Helicon discharges
* Hollow cathode discharges
* Ionized physical vapor deposition
* Differential substrate charging

With new chapters on dusty plasmas and the kinetic theory of discharges, graduate students and researchers in the field of plasma processing should find this new edition more valuable than ever.

Theory of Mode Conversion and Tunneling in Inhomogeneous Plasmas

Theory of Mode Conversion and Tunneling in Inhomogeneous Plasmas Lowest new price: $40.80
Lowest used price: $13.01
List price: $125.00
Author: D. G. Swanson

A fresh look at the phenomenon of mode conversion with tunneling.

This volume provides a thorough analysis of plasma wave resonance absorption--a mode conversion process used in wave heating and diagnostics worldwide. The only book to incorporate mode conversion into a general treatment of plasma physics and plasma waves, it describes a broad range of applications and develops methods of mode conversion that are more advanced and precise than others in use today. This monograph presents the complete theory underlying the diagnostic implications of the process, combining estimates of tunneling, reflection, conversion, and absorption with emission. It surveys two decades' worth of developments in the field and:
* Brings together a wealth of information previously scattered in the professional literature
* Details numerous analytical and numerical results, many of which are published here for the first time
* Proves the surprising result that the phenomena of tunneling and absorption are independent
* Shows the link between the absorption and emission processes associated with resonances
* Features dozens of illustrations, as well as an extensive bibliography and references
* Appends a collection of mathematical formulas useful in plasma physics
* Offers via e-mail a variety of Fortran codes covering the examples in the book.

Theory of Mode Conversion and Tunneling in Inhomogeneous Plasmas is an essential reference for researchers working in plasma physics, space plasma physics, and fusion energy fields, and for anyone developing codes in plasma wave heating modeling. Its tutorial approach makes it invaluable for graduate students taking courses in plasma waves--whether in physics, electrical engineering, or nuclear engineering.

"Blurb & Contents" "The reader is treated to constantly refreshing and engaging commentary and opinion that always informs....As she depicts them, the problems of the universe are always fascinating and, most of all, they are alive and compelling." David DeVorkin, Sky & Telescope Virginia Trimble offers readers a fascinating and accessible tour of the stars. An astronomer with shared appointments in California and Maryland, the author ranges over a large portion of the universe as she discusses the search for life on other planets, how galaxies form, why stars explode and die, and the nature of the elusive dark matter in the universe. She also explains the astronomical significance of Cheeps' pyramid and leads the reader through scientific speculation about what and when the Star of Bethlehem might have been. Throughout, Trimble points to the exciting unanswered questions that still perplex the field and considers the formidable tasks to be faced by the next generation of young astronomers.

Physics of Continuous Matter: Exotic and Everyday Phenomena in the Macroscopic World

Physics of Continuous Matter: Exotic and Everyday Phenomena in the Macroscopic World Lowest new price: $110.95
Lowest used price: $61.09
List price: $65.95
Author: B. Lautrup
Brand: Brand: CRC Press

Offering a modern approach to this most classical of subjects, Physics of Continuous Matter is first and foremost an introduction to the basic concepts and phenomenology of continuous systems, and the derivations of the equations of continuum mechanics from Newtonian mechanics. Although many examples, particularly in the earlier chapters, are taken from geophysics and astrophysics, the author places the emphasis frimly on generic methods and applications. Each chapter begins with a ‘soft’ introduction, placing the discussion within an everyday context, and the level of difficulty then rises steadily, a pattern which is reflected throughout the text as a whole. The necessary mathematical tools are developed in parallel with the physics on a ‘need-to-know’ basis, an approach that avoids lengthy mathematical preliminaries.

Fusion: A Voyage Through the Plasma Universe (Plasma Physics Series)

Fusion: A Voyage Through the Plasma Universe (Plasma Physics Series) Lowest new price: $24.95
Lowest used price: $19.90
List price: $74.95
Author: Hans Wilhelmsson
Brand: Brand: CRC Press

Journeying through fusion in the universe, Fusion: A Voyage Through the Plasma Universe discusses all aspects of fusion and how they relate to our universe. It also studies the attempts to produce fusion energy on Earth. The book addresses a wide range of topics from stars, galaxies, comets, pulsars, black holes, and quasars to the auroras, lightning, and fluorescent tubes.

Interestingly, the author explores how artists and authors like Vincent van Gogh, Leonardo da Vinci, and Hannes Alfvén have been fascinated by cosmic phenomena that rely on fusion and plasmas. He discusses motions in plasma, such as flames, waves, and whirls similar to those that occur in water.

The book also examines several other branches of science where parallels can be found with fusion plasmas, including ecological systems that provide only very short-term weather forecasts and the dramatic changes in the world economy with its explosive tendencies and sometimes catastrophic results. It briefly shows how these nonlinear phenomena are at the heart of modern fusion plasma theory.

Fundamentals of Plasma Physics

Fundamentals of Plasma Physics Lowest new price: $93.18
Lowest used price: $96.00
List price: $111.00
Author: Paul M. Bellan

This rigorous explanation of plasmas is relevant to diverse plasma applications such as controlled fusion, astrophysical plasmas, solar physics, magnetospheric plasmas, and plasma thrusters. More thorough than previous texts, it exploits new powerful mathematical techniques to develop deeper insights into plasma behavior. After developing the basic plasma equations from first principles, the book explores single particle motion with particular attention to adiabatic invariance. The author then examines types of plasma waves and the issue of Landau damping. Magnetohydrodynamic equilibrium and stability are tackled with emphasis on the topological concepts of magnetic helicity and self-organization. Advanced topics follow, including magnetic reconnection, nonlinear waves, and the Fokker-Planck treatment of collisions. The book concludes by discussing unconventional plasmas such as non-neutral and dusty plasmas. Written for beginning graduate students and advanced undergraduates, this text emphasizes the fundamental principles that apply across many different contexts.
