Title:Nuclear Physics with Polarized Particles [electronic resource]
Author(s): Hans Paetz gen. Schieck
Date:2012
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The measurement of spin-polarization observables in reactions of nuclei and particles is of great utility and advantage when the effects of single-spin sub-states are to be investigated. Indeed, the unpolarized differentialcross-section encompasses t he averaging over the spin states of the particles, and thus loses details of the interaction process. This introductory text combines, in a single volume, course-based lecture notes on spin physics and onpolarized-ion sources with the aim of providing a concise yet self-contained starting point for newcomers to the field, as well as for lecturers in search of suitable material for their courses and seminars. A significant part ofthe book is devoted to introducing the formal theorya description of polari zation and of nuclear reactions with polarized particles. The remainder of the text describes the physical basis of methods and devices necessary to performexperiments with polarized particles and to measure polarization and polarization effects in nuclea r reactions. The book concludes with a brief review of modern applications in medicine and fusion energy research. For reasons ofconciseness and of the pedagogical aims of this volume, examples are mainly taken from low-energy installations such as tandem Van de Graaff laboratories, although the emphasis of present research is shifting to medium- and high-energynuclear physics. Consequently, this volume is restricted to describing non-relativistic processes and focuses on the energy range from astrophysic al energies (a few keV) to tens of MeV. It is further restricted to polarimetry ofhadronic particles

Title:Evolutionary Statistical Procedures [electronic resource] : An Evolutionary Computation Approach to Statistical Procedures Designs and Applications
Author(s): Roberto Baragona
Francesco Battaglia
Irene Poli
Date:2011
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This proposed text appears to be a good introduction to evolutionary computation for use in applied statistics research. The authors draw from a vast base of knowledge about the current literature in both the design ofevolutionary algorithms and stat istical techniques. Modern statistical research is on the threshold of solving increasingly complex problems in high dimensions, and the generalization of its methodology to parameters whose estimatorsdo not follow mathematically simple distributions is u nderway. Many of these challenges involve optimizing functions for which analytic solutions are infeasible. Evolutionary algorithms represent a powerful and easily understood meansof approximating the optimum value in a variety of settings. The proposed t ext seeks to guide readers through the crucial issues of optimization problems in statistical settings and the implementation of tailored methods (includingboth stand-alone evolutionary algorithms and hybrid crosses of these procedures with standard stati stical algorithms like Metropolis-Hastings) in a variety of applications. This book would serve as an excellent reference work forstatistical researchers at an advanced graduate level or beyond, particularly those with a strong background in computer scie nce

Title:Applied Quantum Cryptography [electronic resource]

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Using the quantum properties of single photons to exchange binary keys between two partners for subsequent encryption of secret data is an absolutely novel technology. Only a few years ago quantum cryptography or better:quantum key distribution was the domain of basic research laboratories at universities. But during the last few years things changed. QKD left the laboratories and was picked up by more practical oriented teams that worked hard todevelop a practically applicable technology out of th e astonishing results of basic research. One major milestone towards a QKD technology was a large research and development project funded by the European Commission that aimed atcombining quantum physics with complementary technologies that are necessary to create a technical solution: electronics, software, and network components were added within the project SECOQC (Development of a Global Network for SecureCommunication based on Quantum Cryptography) that teamed up all expertise on European level to ge t a technology for future encryption. The practical application of QKD in a standard optical fibre network was demonstrated October 2008in Vienna, giving a glimpse of the future of secure communication. Although many steps have still to be done in order t o achieve a real mature technology, the corner stone for future secure communication is already laid. QKD will notbe the Holy Grail of security, it will not be able to solve all problems for evermore. But QKD has the potential to replace one of the weakes t parts of symmetric encryption: the exchange of the key. It can be proven that the keyexchange process cannot be corrupted and that keys that are generated and exchanged quantum cryptographically will be secure for ever (as long as some additional condit ions are kept). This book will show the state of the art of QuantumCryptography and it will sketch how it can be implemented in standard communication infrastructure. The growing vulnerability of

Title:Introduction to Focused Ion Beams [electronic resource] : Instrumentation, Theory, Techniques and Practice

Date:2005
Publisher:Boston, MA : Springer US
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The focused ion beam (FIB) instrument has experienced an intensive period of maturation since its inception. Numerous new techniques and applications have been brought to fruition, and over the past few years, the FIB has gainedacceptance as more tha n just an expensive sample preparation tool. It has taken its place among the suite of other instruments commonly available in analytical and forensic laboratories, universities, geological, medical and biologicalresearch institutions, and manufacturing p lants. Although the utility of the FIB is not limited to the preparation of specimens for subsequent analysis by other analytical techniques, it has revolutionized the area of TEM specimenpreparation. The FIB has also been used to prepare samples for nume rous other analytical techniques, and offers a wide range of other capabilities. While the mainstream of FIB usage remains within the semiconductor industry, FIB usagehas expanded to applications in metallurgy, ceramics, composites, polymers, geology, art , biology, pharmaceuticals, forensics, and other disciplines. Computer automated procedures have been configured for unattended use of FIB and dualplatform instruments. New applications of FIB and dual platform instrumentation are constantly being develop ed for materials characterization and nanotechnology. The site specific nature of the FIB milling and deposition capabilitiesallows preparation and processing of materials in ways that are limited only by one's imagination. Introduction to Focused Ion Bea ms is geared towards techniques and applications. The first portion of this book introduces the basics ofFIB instrumentation, milling, and deposition capabilities. The chapter dedicated to ion-solid interactions is presented so that the FIB user can under stand which parameters will influence FIB milling behavior. The remainder of the bookfocuses on how to prepare and analyze samples using FIB and related tools, and presents specific applications and tec
