Title:Length-Scale Dependent Phonon Interactions [electronic resource]
Author(s): Subhash L Shind
Gyaneshwar P Srivastava
Date:2014
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This book presents a comprehensive description of phonons and their interactions in systems with different dimensions and length scales. Internationally-recognized leaders describe theories and measurements of phononinteractions in relation to the de sign of materials with exotic properties such as metamaterials, nano-mechanical systems, next-generation electronic, photonic, and acoustic devices, energy harvesting, optical information storage,and applications of phonon lasers in a variety of fields. T he emergence of techniques for control of semiconductor properties and geometry has enabled engineers to design structures in which functionality is derived from controllingelectron behavior. As manufacturing techniques have greatly expanded the list of a vailable materials and the range of attainable length scales, similar opportunities now exist for designing devices whose functionality is derived fromcontrolling phonon behavior. However, progress in this area is hampered by gaps in our knowledge of phon on transport across and along arbitrary interfaces, the scattering of phonons with crystal defects, interface roughness andmass-mixing, delocalized electrons/collective electronic excitations, and solid acoustic vibrations when these occur in structures w ith small physical dimensions. This book provides a comprehensive description of phonons and theirinteractions in systems with different dimensions and length scales. Theories and measurements of phonon interactions are described in relation to the design of materials with exotic properties such as metamaterials, nano-mechanicalsystems, next-generation electronic, photonic, and acoustic devices, energy harvesting, optical information storage, and applications of phonon lasers in a variety of fields. First book to cover phonon dispersion relations and phononinteractions at different length scales Discusses both theory and measurements of phonon transport and its relevance to materials properties Desc

Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Mechanics of Advanced Functional Materials emphasizes the coupling effect between the electric and mechanical field in the piezoelectric, ferroelectric and other functional materials. It also discusses the size effect on theferroelectric domain insta bility and phase transition behaviors using the continuum micro-structural evolution models. Functional materials usually have a very wide application in engineering due to their unique thermal, electric,magnetic, optoelectronic, etc., functions. Almost a ll the applications demand that the material should have reasonable stiffness, strength, fracture toughness and the other mechanical properties. Furthermore, usually the stress andstrain fields on the functional materials and devices have some important c oupling effect on the functionality of the materials. Much progress has been made concerning the coupling electric and mechanical behaviors such as the coupledelectric and stress field distribution in piezoelectric solids, ferroelectric domain patterns in ferroelectrics, fracture and failure properties under coupled electric and stress field, etc. The book is intended for researchers andpostgraduate students in the fields of mechanics, materials sciences and applied physics who are interested to work on t he interdisciplinary mathematical modeling of the functional materials.

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:In this book, a modern unified theory of dispersion forces on atoms and bodies is presented which covers a broad range of advanced aspects and scenarios. Macroscopic quantum electrodynamics is shown to provide a powerful frameworkfor dispersion force s which allows for discussing general properties like their non-additivity and the relation between microscopic and macroscopic interactions. It is demonstrated how the general results can be used to obtaindispersion forces on atoms in the presence of bod ies of various shapes and materials. Starting with a brief recapitulation of volume I, this volume II deals especially with bodies of irregular shapes, universal scaling laws, dynamicalforces on excited atoms, enhanced forces in cavity quantum electrodyna mics, non-equilibrium forces in thermal environments and quantum friction. The book gives both the specialist and those new to the field a thorough overview overrecent results in the field. It provides a toolbox for studying dispersion forces in various c ontexts

Title:Helium Cryogenics [electronic resource]

Note:Twenty five years have elapsed since the original publication of Helium Cryogenics. During this time, a considerable amount of research and development involving helium fluids has been carried out culminating in severallarge-scale projects. Furthermo re, the field has matured through these efforts so that there is now a broad engineering base to assist the development of future projects. Helium Cryogenics, 2nd edition brings these advances in heliumcryogenics together in an updated form. As in the ori ginal edition, the author's approach is to survey the field of cryogenics with emphasis on helium fluids. This approach is more specialized and fundamental than that contained inother cryogenics books, which treat the associated range of cryogenic fluids. As a result, the level of treatment is more advanced and assumes a certain knowledge of fundamental engineering and physics principles, including somequantum mechanics. The goal throughout the work is to bridge the gap between the physics and engineering aspects of helium fluids to provide a source for engineers and scientists to enhance their usefulness in low-temperature systems.Dr. Van Sciver is a Distinguished Research Professor and John H. Gorrie Professor of Mechanical Engineering at Florida State University. He is also a Program Director at the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory (NHMFL). Dr. VanSciver joined the FAMU-FSU College of Engineering and the NHMFL in 1991, initiating and teaching a graduate program in magnet and materials engineerin g and in cryogenic thermal sciences and heat transfer. He also led the NHMFLdevelopment efforts of the cryogenic systems for the NHMFL Hybrid and 900 MHz NMR superconducting magnets. Between 1997 and 2003, he served as Director of Magnet Science and Techn ology at the NHMFL. Dr. Van Sciver is a Fellow of theASME and the Cryogenic Society of America and American Editor for the journal Cryogenics. He is the 2010 recipient of the Kurt Mendelssohn Award. P

Note:Aerogels are the lightest solids known. Up to 1000 times lighter than glass and with a density as low as only four times that of air, they show very high thermal, electrical and acoustic insulation values and hold many entries inGuinness World Record s. Originally based on silica, R&D efforts have extended this class of materials to non-silicate inorganic oxides, natural and synthetic organic polymers, carbon, metal and ceramic materials, etc. Composite systemsinvolving polymer-crosslinked aerogels an d interpenetrating hybrid networks have been developed and exhibit remarkable mechanical strength and flexibility. Even more exotic aerogels based on clays, chalcogenides, phosphides, quantumdots, and biopolymers such as chitosan are opening new applicati ons for the construction, transportation, energy, defense and healthcare industries. Applications in electronics, chemistry, mechanics, engineering, energy production andstorage, sensors, medicine, nanotechnology, military and aerospace, oil and gas recov ery, thermal insulation and household uses are being developed with an estimated annual market growth rate of around 70% until 2015. The AerogelsHandbook summarizes state-of-the-art developments and processing of inorganic, organic, and composite aerogels , including the most important methods of synthesis, characterization as well as their typical applications and theirpossible market impact. Readers will find an exhaustive overview of all aerogel materials known today, their fabrication, upscaling aspect s, physical and chemical properties, and most recent advances towards applications and commercialproducts, some of which are commercially available today.

Note:Learning Solid State Physics involves a certain degree of maturity, since it involves tying together diverse concepts from many areas of physics. The objective is to understand, in a basic way, how solid materials behave. To dothis one needs both a g ood physical and mathematical background. One definition of Solid State Physics is it is the study of the physical (e.g. the electrical, dielectric, magnetic, elastic, and thermal) properties of solids in termsof basic physical laws. In one sense, Solid S tate Physics is more like chemistry than some other branches of physics because it focuses on common properties of large classes of materials.

We have re tained the term Solid Modern solid state physics came of age in the late thirties and forties and is now is part of condensed matter physics which includesliquids, soft materials, and non-crystalline solids.

Note:As microstructured glass becomes increasingly important for microsystems technology, the main application fields include micro-fluidic systems, micro-analysis systems, sensors, micro-actuators and implants. And, because glass hasquite distinct proper ties from silicon, PMMA and metals, applications exist where only glass devices meet the requirements. The main advantages of glass derive from its amorphous nature, the precondition for its - theoretically -direction-independent geometric structurability . Microstructuring of Glasses deals with the amorphous state, various glass compositions and their properties, the interactions between glasses and the electromagnetic waves used to modifyit. Also treated in detail are methods for influencing the geometri cal microstructure of glasses by mechanical, chemical, thermal, optical, and electrical treatment, and the methods and equipment required to produce actualmicrodevices

Note:Comet nuclei are the most primitive bodies in the solar system. They have been created far away from the early Sun and it is supposed that their material has been altered the least since their formation. This volume presents theresults of a scientifi c workshop on comet nuclei and is written by experts working on interstellar clouds, star-forming regions, the solar nebula, and comets. The articles formulate the current understanding and interconnectivity ofthe various source regions of comet nuclei an d their associated compositions and orbital characteristics. This includes a discussion on the transport of materials into the Kuiper belt and Oort cloud regions of the solar system. Thedistinction between direct measurements of cometary material properti es and properties derived from indirect means are emphasized with the aim to guide future investigations. This book serves as a guide for researchers and graduatestudents working in the field of planetology and solar system exploration.

Note:Understanding cooperative phenomena far from equilibrium is one of fascinating challenges of present-day many-body physics. Glassy behaviour and the physical ageing process of such materials are paradigmatic examples. The presentvolume, primarily int ended as introduction and reference for postgraduate students and nonspecialist researchers from related fields, collects six extensive lectures addressing selected experimental and theoretical issues in the fieldof glassy systems. Lecture 1 gives an intr oduction and overview of the time-dependent behaviour of magnetic spin glasses. Lecture 2 is devoted to an in-depth discussion on the nature of the thermal glass-transition in structuralglasses. Lecture 3 examines the glassy behaviour of granular systems. Lecture 4 gives a thorough introduction to the techniques and applications of Monte-Carlo simulations and the analysis of the resulting data through scaling methods.Lecture 5 introduces the zero-range-process concept as simple but subtle model to describ e a range of static and dynamic properties of glassy systems. Lecture 6 shows how familiar RG methods for equilibrium systems can be extended tosystems far from equilibrium

Title:Laser Ablation and its Applications [electronic resource]
Author(s): Claude Phipps
Date:2007
Publisher:Boston, MA : Springer US
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Laser ablation describes the interaction of intense optical fields with matter, in which atoms are selectively driven off by thermal or nonthermal mechanisms. The field of laser ablation physics is advancing so rapidly that itsprincipal results are s een only in specialized journals and conferences. This is the first book that combines the most recent results in this rapidly advancing field with authoritative treatment of laser ablation and its applications,including the physics of high-power laser-ma tter interaction. Many practical applications exist, ranging from inertial confinement fusion to propulsion of aerostats for pollution monitoring to laser ignition of hypersonic engines tolaser cleaning nanoscale contaminants in high-volume computer hard drive manufacture to direct observation of the electronic or dissociative states in atoms and molecules, to studying the properties of materials during 200kbar shocksdeveloped in 200fs. Selecting topics which are representative of such a broad field is di fficult. Laser Ablation and its Applications emphasizes the wide range of these topics rather than - as is so often the case in advanced science focusing on one specialty or discipline. The book is divided into four sections: theory and modeling, ultrafas t interactions, material processing and laser-matter interaction in novel regimes. The latter range from MALDI to ICF,SNOMs and femtosecond nanosurgery to laser space propulsion. The book arose from the SPIE series of High Power Laser Ablation Symposia wh ich began in 1998. It is intended for a graduate course in laser interactions with plasmas andmaterials, but it should be accessible to anyone with a graduate degree in physics or engineering. It is also intended as a major reference work to familiarize s cientists just entering the field with laser ablation and itsapplications

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:There is a major development emerging at the intersection of modern physics, computer science, and materials science, which struggles to squeeze more devices into a restricted volume and constitutes a central focus of modernnanotechnology. Utilizing the metal-based hybrid nanostructures may offer significant advantages over those exploiting purely semiconductor materials. First, the chemistry of metals is typically simpler than that of semiconductors.Second, the electric properties of metals are much less sensitive to the structural defects and impurities than those of semiconductors. Next, metallic devices allow better electric and thermal contacts. And, last but by no meansleast, the high electron velocity in metals promises to accelerate enormousl y operation rates with respect to those in semiconductor-based devices. The book reflects scientific developments in the physics of metallic compounds basednanodevices presented at the NATO-sponsored Workshop on nanophysics held in St. Petersburg, Russia in the summer of 2003

Note:

This book appears in the authoritative series reporting the international research and development activities conducted by the Schott group of companies. This series provides an overview of Schott's activities for scientists,engineers, and manager s from all branches of industry worldwide in which glasses and glass ceramics are of interest. Each volume begins with a chapter providing a general idea of the current problems, results, and trends relating tothe subjects treated.

This new extend ed edition describes the fundamental principles, the manufacturing process, and applications of low thermal expansion glass ceramics. The composition, structure, and stability ofpolycrystalline materials having a low thermal expansion are described, and i t is shown how low thermal expansion glass ceramics can be manufactured from appropriately chosen glass compositions. Examples illustrate the formation ofthis type of glass ceramic by utilizing normal production processes together with controlled crystall ization. Thus glass ceramics with thermal coefficients of expansion of less than 0.3 x 10(-6)K(-1) can be obtained. Even for the massproduction of high-quality cooktop panels (Ceran., oven windows, and other household appliances a high reproducibility of the properties is achieved. Special glass ceramics (Zerodur. for technological and scientific applicationssuch as high-precision optics or large astronomical mirrors are likewise discussed. The completely revised edition also features new sections on glas s-ceramic applications, with details on their performance, CDC-grinding, and lasergyroscopes containing Zerodur..
