Title:Terahertz and Mid Infrared Radiation: Detection of Explosives and CBRN (Using Terahertz) [electronic resource]
Author(s): Mauro F Pereira
Oleksiy Shulika
Date:2014
Publisher:Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:The reader will find here a timely update on new THz sources and detection schemes as well as concrete applications to the detection of Explosives and CBRN. Included is a method to identify hidden RDX-based explosives (pure andplastic ones) in the fr equency domain study by Fourier Transformation, which has been complemented by the demonstration of improvement of the quality of the images captured commercially available THz passive cameras. The presentedexamples show large potential for the detection of small hidden objects at long distances (6-10 m). Complementing the results in the short-wavelength range, laser spectroscopy with a mid-infrared, room temperature, continuous wave,DFB laser diode and high performance DFB QCL have been demonstrated to o ffer excellent enabling sensor technologies for environmental monitoring, medical diagnostics, industrial and security applications. From the new source point ofview a number of systems have been presented - From superconductors to semiconductors, e.g. De tection of Terahertz Waves from Superconducting Bi2Sr2CaCu2O8+ Intrinsic Josephson Junctions. The quest for a compact room temperatureTHz source and the recent advances in high power mid-IR QCLs lead to the development of a semiconductor THz source based on intracavity difference frequency generation. Furthermore, alternative electrically pumped THz sources based onthe high emission efficiency predicted for polaritonic states in the ultra-strong coupling regime led to the demonstration of electroluminesce nt devices. Finally, antipolaritons in dispersive media were discussed and differentaspects of the interaction of THz radiation with biomater were presented

Title:Harvesting Space for a Greener Earth [electronic resource]
Author(s): Greg Matloff
C Bangs
Les Johnson
Date:2014
Edition:2nd ed. 2014
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:What was our planet like in years past? How has our civilization affected Earth and its ecology? Harvesting Space for a Greener Planet, the Second Edition of Paradise Regained: The Regreening of the Earth, begins by discussingthese questions, and the n generates a scenario for the restoration of Earth. It introduces new and innovative ideas on how we could use the Solar System and its resources for terrestrial benefit. The environmental challenges that faceus today cannot be resolved by conservation a nd current technologies alone. Harvesting Space highlights the risk of humankinds future extinction from environmental degradation. Population growth, global climate change, andmaintaining sustainability of habitats for wildlife are all considered, among other issues. Rather than losing heart, we need to realize that the solutions to these problems lie in being good stewards of the planet and in thedevelopment of space. Not only will the solutions offered here avert a crisis, they will also provide the ba sis for continued technological and societal progress. Tapping the resources of near-Earth asteroids will lead to methods ofdiverting those asteroids that threaten Earth. Space-based terrestrial power generation systems will work synergistically with Eart h-based conservation. This book needs to be read urgently and widely, if we are to save ourselves fromenvironmental disaster, reduce the risk of catastrophic cosmic impacts, and build a prosperous and sustainable future for all the creatures of Earth

Note:Modern Earth System Monitoring represents a fundamental change in the way scientists study the Earth System. In Oceanography, for the past two centuries, ships have provided the platforms for observing. Expeditions on thecontinents and Earths poles a re land-based analogues. Fundamental understanding of current systems, climate, natural hazards, and ecosystems has been greatly advanced. While these approaches have been remarkably successful, the needto establish measurements over time can only be made using Earth observations and observatories with exacting standards and continuous data. The 19 peer-reviewed contributions in this volume provide early insights into this emergingview of Earth in both space and time in which change is a critical componen t of our growingunderstanding.

Title:Astronomy and the Climate Crisis [electronic resource]
Author(s): Antony Cooke

Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Climate change is one of the most hotly debated issues of today. Increasing global temperatures will impact all of us. There are more questions than answers, however, and sweeping statements on the subject made by public figures,often with little sci entific understanding, only further confuses public opinion. Astronomical factors, apart from passing references to the Sun, are given short shrift in relation to climate change. However, they might be amongst themajor determinants of it. A presentation o f those that have been studied that some scientists suspect might be involved are featured in this book. Included is an in-depth look at the physics of climate itself, the potential effectsof the Sun, solar storms, sunspots, solar variability, the magneto sphere, solar cycles, influences of nearby planets, orbital factors, cosmic rays, possible galactic influences, monitoring from space, even climate change elsewhere inthe solar system, and much more. The greatest challenge climate change scientists face i s determining actual world climate statistics and analyzing the historical record. Another challenge lies in evaluating all of the various theoriesthat have been proposed. Is the current climate crisis completely human-induced, as some very credible sourc es say, or only partly human-induced.? Is carbon dioxide even the real threat? If not, what is? Astronomy and the ClimateCrisis is a serious attempt to reconcile the various scientific climate change studies, highlighting in particular the astronomical fa ctors that are possibly hidden culprits. This book can help you to become informed and join thedebate. You might be very surprised at what you find out!

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The practical realisation of optoelectronic devices operating in the 210 m (mid-infrared) wavelength range offers potential applications in a variety of areas from environmental gas monitoring around oil rigs and landfillsites to the detection of pha rmaceuticals, particularly narcotics. In addition, an atmospheric transmission window exists between 3 m and 5 m that enables free-space optical communications, thermal imaging applications and thedevelopment of infrared measures for homeland security. Co nsequently, the mid-infrared is very attractive for the development of sensitive optical sensor instrumentation. Unfortunately, the nature of the likely applicationsdictates stringent requirements in terms of laser operation, miniaturisation and cost that are difficult to meet. Many of the necessary improvements are linked to a better ability to fabricate and to understand the optoelectronicproperties of suitable high-quality epitaxial materials and device structures. Substantial progress in these matters is presented here. Mid-infrared Semiconductor Optoelectronics is an overview of the current status and technologicaldevelopment in this rapidly emerging area. It is composed of four parts. First, the basic physics and some of the main problems facing the design engineer (together with a comparison of possible solutions) are laid out. Next, there isa consideration of the multifarious lasers used as sources for mid-infrared technology, including an inspection of current approaches to the lack of such a sou rce in the 34 m region. Part III reviews recent work in light-emittingdiodes and detectors and also deals with negative luminescence. The final part of the book is concerned with applications and highlights, once more, the diversity and technological impo rtance of the mid-infrared spectral region. With aworld-wide authorship of experts working in a number of different mid-infrared-related fields Mid-infrared Semiconductor Optoelectronics

Note:The paradigms of dynamic games play an important role in the development of multi-agent models in engineering, economics, and management science. The applicability of their concepts stems from the ability to encompass situationswith uncertainty, inco mplete information, fluctuating coalition structure, and coupled constraints imposed on the strategies of all the players. This bookan outgrowth of the 10th International Symposium on Dynamic Gamespresentscurrent developments of the theory of dynamic game s and its applications to various domains, in particular energy-environment economics and management sciences. The volume uses dynamic game models of various sorts to approach and solveseveral problems pertaining to pursuit-evasion, marketing, finance, cl imate and environmental economics, resource exploitation, as well as auditing and tax evasions. In addition, it includes some chapters on cooperative games, whichare increasingly drawing dynamic approaches to their classical solutions. The book is themati cally organized into six parts: * zero-sum game theory * pursuit-evasion games * games of coalitions * new interpretations of theinterdependence between different members of a social group * original applications to energy-environment economics * manageme nt science applications This work will serve as a state-of-the art account of recent advances in dynamic gametheory and its applications for researchers, practitioners, and graduate students in applied mathematics, engineering, economics, as well as envir onmental and management sciences
