Basic Space Plasma Physics (Revised Edition)

Basic Space Plasma Physics (Revised Edition) Lowest new price: $64.00
Lowest used price: $68.46
List price: $68.00
Author: Wolfgang Baumjohann
Brand: Brand: Imperial College Press

This textbook deals with the requirements of space physics. The first part begins with a description of the Earth's plasma environment, followed by a derivation of single particle motions in electromagnetic fields, with applications to the Earth's magnetosphere. Then the origin and effects of collisions and conductivities, formation of the ionosphere, magnetospheric convection and dynamics, and solar wind-magnetosphere coupling are discussed.The second part of the book presents a more theoretical foundation of plasma physics, starting with kinetic theory. Introducing moments of the distribution function permits derivation of the fluid equations, followed by an analysis of fluid boundaries, with the Earth's magnetopause and bow shock as examples. Finally, fluid and kinetic theory are applied to derive the relevant wave modes in a plasma.The revised edition seamlessly integrates new sections on magnetospheric reconstruction, as well as instability and thermal fluctuations based on new developments in space physics. Applications such as the important problems of collisionless reconnection and collisionless shocks are covered. Some problems have also been included at the end of each chapter.A representative selection of the many space plasma instabilities and relevant aspects of nonlinear theory is given in a companion textbook, Advanced Space Plasma Physics, written by the same authors.

Principles of Plasma Diagnostics

Principles of Plasma Diagnostics Lowest new price: $168.11
Lowest used price: $20.50
List price: $41.99
Author: I. H. Hutchinson
Brand: Brand: Cambridge University Press

Principles of Plasma Diagnostics is the most modern and comprehensive book in its field. It joins for the first time a body of knowledge previously scattered throughout scientific literature. The text is based on first-principles development of the required concepts, so it is accessible to students and researchers with little plasma physics background. Nevertheless, even seasoned plasma physicists should find insight in the lucid development of the fundamentals as they apply to diagnostics and also appreciate the work as a valuable reference. Although most of the examples of diagnostics in action are taken from fusion research, the work's focus on principles will make it useful to all plasma physicists, those interested in space and astrophysical plasmas as well as laboratory plasmas, and theoreticians as well as experimenters themselves.

The Framework Of Plasma Physics (Frontiers in Physics)

The Framework Of Plasma Physics (Frontiers in Physics) Lowest new price: $65.00

Plasma physics is a necessary part of our understanding of stellar and galactic structure. It determines the magnetospheric environment of the earth and other planets; it forms the research frontier in such areas as nuclear fusion, advanced accelerators, and high power lasers; and its applications to various industrial processes (such as computer chip manufacture) are rapidly increasing. It is thus a subject with a long list of scientific and technological applications. This book provides the scientific background for understanding such applications, but it emphasizes something else: the intrinsic scientific interest of the plasma state. It attempts to develop an understanding of this state, and of plasma behavior, as thoroughly and systematically as possible. The book was written with the graduate student in mind, but most of the material would also fit into an upper-level undergraduate course.

The Fourth State of Matter: An Introduction to the Physics of Plasma

The Fourth State of Matter: An Introduction to the Physics of Plasma Lowest new price: $187.80
Lowest used price: $5.11

Author: Y Eliezer
Brand: Brand: Taylor Francis

Familiar as we are with three states of matter in our everyday surroundings - solid, liquid and gas - we may be surprised to learn that most of the known Universe is in a fourth state. This fourth state of matter known to physicists as plasma, is a fluid of electrically charged particles, often at very high temperatures. It is the stuff of which stars are made; at one time in the early Universe it was the state in which all matter was found. It occurs on Earth in lightning discharges and, more prosaically, in fluorescent light tubes. This book allows a glimpse through the plasma in our Universe. In The Fourth State of Matter a husband-and-wife team explain to the lay reader in simple English the nature and properties of plasma, its formation and what it's used for. Most importantly for future generations, research in plasma physics may help to control thermonuclear reactions and provide a virtually inexhaustible supply of energy.

Handbook of Advanced Plasma Processing Techniques

Handbook of Advanced Plasma Processing Techniques Lowest new price: $275.22
Lowest used price: $243.71
List price: $299.99

Pattern transfer by dry etching and plasma-enhanced chemical vapor de­ position are two of the cornerstone techniques for modern integrated cir­ cuit fabrication. The success of these methods has also sparked interest in their application to other techniques, such as surface-micromachined sen­ sors, read/write heads for data storage and magnetic random access memory (MRAM). The extremely complex chemistry and physics of plasmas and their interactions with the exposed surfaces of semiconductors and other materi­ als is often overlooked at the manufacturing stage. In this case, the process is optimized by an informed "trial-and-error" approach which relies heavily on design-of-experiment techniques and the intuition of the process engineer. The need for regular cleaning of plasma reactors to remove built-up reaction or precursor gas products adds an extra degree of complexity because the interaction of the reactive species in the plasma with the reactor walls can also have a strong effect on the number of these species available for etching or deposition. Since the microelectronics industry depends on having high process yields at each step of the fabrication process, it is imperative that a full understanding of plasma etching and deposition techniques be achieved.

An Introduction to the Physics of Intense Charged Particle Beams

An Introduction to the Physics of Intense Charged Particle Beams Lowest new price: $69.79
Lowest used price: $18.46
List price: $99.00
Author: R. Miller

An intense charged particle beam can be characterized as an organized charged particle flow for which the effects of beam self-fields are of major importance in describing the evolution of the flow. Research employing such beams is now a rapidly growing field with important applications ranging from the development of high power sources of coherent radiation to inertial confinement fusion. Major programs have now been established at several laboratories in the United States and Great Britain, as well as in the USSR, Japan, and several Eastern and Western European nations. In addition, related research activities are being pursued at the graduate level at several universities in the US and abroad. When the author first entered this field in 1973 there was no single reference text that provided a broad survey of the important topics, yet contained sufficient detail to be of interest to the active researcher. That situation has persisted, and this book is an attempt to fill the void. As such, the text is aimed at the graduate student, or beginning researcher; however, it contains ample information to be a convenient reference source for the advanced worker.
