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

Title:Surface Plasmon Nanophotonics [electronic resource]
Author(s): Mark L Brongersma
Pieter G Kik
Date:2007
Publisher:Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The development of advanced dielectric photonic structures has enabled tremendous control over the propagation and manipulation of light. Structures such as waveguides, splitters, mixers, and resonators now play a central role inthe telecommunication s industry. This book will discuss an exciting new class of photonic devices, known as surface plasmon nanophotonic structures. Surface plasmons are easily accessible excitations in metals and semiconductors andinvolve a collective motion of the conductio n electrons. These excitations can be exploited to manipulate electromagnetic waves at optical frequencies (light) in new ways that are unthinkable in conventional dielectric structures.The field of plasmon nanophotonics is rapidly developing and impactin g a wide range of areas including: electronics, photonics, chemistry, biology, and medicine. The book will highlight several exciting new discoveries that have beenmade, while providing a clear discussion of the underlying physics, the nanofabrication iss ues, and the materials considerations involved in designing plasmonic devices with new functionality. The book is aimed at researchers andstudents interested in entering the field of plasmon nanophotonics, while serving as a reference to scientists alread y active in this area of research. It is written at the level of a first year graduate student with some background inelectromagnetic theory and working knowledge of Maxwells equations

Title:Device Applications of Nonlinear Dynamics [electronic resource]
Author(s): Salvatore Baglio

Date:2006
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This edited book is devoted specifically to the applications of complex nonlinear dynamic phenomena to real systems and device applications. While in the past decades there has been significant progress in the theory of nonlinearphenomena under an as sortment of system boundary conditions and preparations, there exist comparatively few devices that actually take this rich behavior into account. Device Applications of Nonlinear Dynamics applies and exploitsthis knowledge to make devices which operate m ore efficiently and cheaply, while affording the promise of much better performance. Given the current explosion of ideas in areas as diverse as molecular motors, nonlinear filteringtheory, noise-enhanced propagation, stochastic resonance and networked sy stems, the time is right to integrate the progress of complex systems research into real devices
