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:Polarization Bremsstrahlung [electronic resource]
Author(s): Andrey V Korol
Andrey V Solov'yov
Date:2014
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This book introduces and reviews both theory and applications of polarizational bremsstrahlung, i.e. the electromagnetic radiation emitted during collisions of charged particles with structured, thus polarizable targets, such asatoms, molecules and c lusters. The subject, following the first experimental evidence a few decades ago, has gained importance through a number of modern applications. Thus, the study of several radiative mechanisms is expected tolead to the design of novel light sources, ope rating in various parts of the electromagnetic spectrum. Conversely, the analysis of the spectral and angular distribution of the photon emission constitutes a new tool for extractinginformation on the interaction of the colliding particles, and on their internal structure and dynamical properties. Last but not least, accurate quantitative descriptions of the photon emission processes determine the radiativeenergy losses of particles in various media, thereby providing essential information required for e.g. plasma diagnostics as well as astrophysical and medical applications (such as radiation therapy). This book primarilyaddresses graduate students and researchers with a background in atomic, molecular, optical or plasma physics, but will also be of b enefit to anyone wishing to enter the field.

Title:The Phantoms of Medical and Health Physics [electronic resource] : Devices for Research and Development
Author(s): Larry A DeWerd
Michael Kissick
Date:2014
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Acomprehensive overview of all types of phantoms used in medical imaging, therapy, nuclear medicine and health physics is provided in this title. For ionizing radiation, dosimetry with respect to issues of material composition,shape, and motion/posit ion effects are all highlighted. For medical imaging, each type of technology will need specific materials and designs, and the physics and indications will be explored for each type. Health physics phantoms areconcerned with some of the same issues such as material heterogeneity, but also unique issues such as organ-specific radiation dose from sources distributed in other organs. Though some of the information enclosed is found in othersources, divided especially along the three categories of imaging, t herapy, and health physics, many medical physicists as well as professionals need to bridge these three catagories. Readers will be able to use this book to select theappropriate phantom from a vendor at a clinic, to learn from as a student, to choose mat erials for custom phantom design, to design dynamic features, and as a reference for a variety of applications

A major focus is put on nuclear structure physics, dealing with superheavy elements and with various forms of exotic nuclei: strange nuclei, very neutron rich nuclei,nuclei of antimatter. Also quantum electro dynamics of strong fields is addressed, which is linked to the occurrence of giant nuclear systems in, e.g., U+U collisions. At high energies nuclear physics joins with elementary particlephysics. Various chapters address the theory of elementary matter a t high densities and temperature, in particular the quark gluon plasma which is predicted by quantum chromodynamics (QCD) to occur in high-energy heavy ion collisions.In the field of nuclear astrophysics, the properties of neutron stars and quark stars ar e discussed. A topic which transcends nuclear physics is discussed in two chapters: The proposed pseudocomplex extension of Einstein's GeneralRelativity leads to the prediction that there are no black holes and that big bang cosmology has to be revised. F inally, the interdisciplinary nature of this volume is further accentuated by chapters on protein folding and onmagnetoreception in birds and many other animals

Note:Lectures on Constructive Approximation: Fourier, Spline, and Wavelet Methods on the Real Line, the Sphere, and the Ball focuses on spherical problems as they occur in the geosciences and medical imaging. It comprises theauthors lectures on classical approximation methods based on orthogonal polynomials and selected modern tools such as splines and wavelets. Methods for approximating functions on the real line are treated first, as they provide thefoundations for the methods on the sphere and the ball and are useful for the analysis of time-dependent (spherical) problems. The author then examines the transfer of these spherical methods to problems on the ball, such as themodeling of the Earths or the brains interior. Specific topics covered include: * the advantages and disadvantages of Fourier, spline, and wavelet methods * theory and numerics of orthogonal polynomials on intervals, spheres, andballs * cubic splines and splines based on reproducing kernels * multiresolution analysis using wavelets an d scaling functions This textbook is written for students in mathematics, physics, engineering, and the geosciences who have abasic background in analysis and linear algebra. The work may also be suitable as a self-study resource for researchers in the ab ove-mentioned fields

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
