Title:Cylindrical Liner Z-pinches as Drivers for Converging Strong Shock Experiments [electronic resource]
Author(s): Guy C Burdiak
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:The thesisdescribes the development of an entirely new experimental platform for generating and studying converging radiative shock waves. It was discovered that the application of large magnetic pressures to gas-filledcylindrical metallic tubes coul d sequentially produce three shocks within the gas. A comprehensive set of instrumentation was devised to explore this system in detail and an exceptionally thorough experimental and theoretical study wascarried out in order to understand the source of th e shock waves and their dynamics.The research is directed towards some of the most interesting topics in high energy density physics (HEDP) today, namely the interaction of HEDmaterial with radiation and magnetic fields, with broad applications to inertia l confinement fusion (ICF) and laboratory plasma astrophysics. The work has alreadygenerated significant international interest in these two distinctresearch areas andthe results could have significant importance for magnetic ICF concepts being explored a t Sandia National Laboratories in the US and for our understanding of the very strong shock waves that are ubiquitous inastrophysics

Title:Principles of Astrophysics [electronic resource] : Using Gravity and Stellar Physics to Explore the Cosmos
Author(s): Charles Keeton
Date:2014
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This book gives a survey of astrophysics at the advanced undergraduate level. It originates from a two-semester course sequence at Rutgers University that is meant to appeal not only to astrophysics students but also morebroadly to physics and engine ering students. The organization is driven more by physics than by astronomy in other words, topics are first developed in physics and then applied to astronomical systems that can be investigated,rather than the other way around. The first half of the bo ok focuses on gravity. Gravity is the dominant force in many astronomical systems, so a tremendous amount can be learned by studying gravity, motion and mass. The theme inthis part of the book, as well as throughout astrophysics, is using motion to invest igate mass. The goal of Chapters 2-11 is to develop a progressively richer understanding of gravity as it applies to objects ranging from planets andmoons to galaxies and the universe as a whole. The second half uses other aspects of physics to address on e of the big questions. While Why are we here? lies beyond the realm of physics, a closely related question is withinour reach: How did we get here? The goal of Chapters 12-21 is to understand the physics behind the remarkable story of how the Universe, E arth and life were formed. This book assumes familiarity with vector calculus andintroductory physics (mechanics, electromagnetism, gas physics and atomic physics) however, all of the physics topics are reviewed as they come up (and vital aspects of vecto r calculus are reviewed in the Appendix). This volume isaimed at undergraduate students majoring in astrophysics, physics or engineering

Title:High Energy Astrophysics [electronic resource] : An Introduction

Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:High-energy astrophysics has unveiled a Universe very different from that only known from optical observations. It has revealed many types of objects in which typical variability timescales are as short as years, months, days, andhours (in quasars, X -ray binaries, and other objects), and even down to milli-seconds in gamma ray bursts. The sources of energy that are encountered are only very seldom nuclear fusion, and most of the time gravitation, a paradox whenone thinks that gravitation is, by many orders of magnitude, the weakest of the fundamental interactions. The understanding of these objects' physical conditions and the processes revealed by high-energy astrophysics in the lastdecades is nowadays part of astrophysicists' culture, even of those active in other domains of astronomy. This book evolved from lectures given to master and PhD students at the University of Geneva since the early 1990s. It aims atproviding astronomers and physicists intending to be active in high-energy astrophysics a broad basis on which they should be able to build the more specific knowledge they will need. While in the first part of the book the physicalprocesses are described and derived in detail, the second part studies astrophysical objects in which high-energy astrophysics plays a crucial role. This two-pronged approach will help students recognise physical processes by theirobservational signatures in contexts that may differ widely from those presented here

Title:Kinetic Simulations of Ion Transport in Fusion Devices [electronic resource]
Author(s): Andrs Bustos Molina
Date:2013
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This thesis deals with the problem of ion confinement in thermonuclear fusion devices. It is a topic of general interest, as it helps to understand via numerical simulations the ion confinement properties in complex geometries,in order to predict the ir behavior and maximize the performance of future fusion reactors. The main work carried out in this thesis is the improvement and exploitation of an existing simulation code called ISDEP. This code solves theso-called ion collisional transport in arbitr ary plasma geometry, improving in this sense other existing codes. Additionally, it presents outstanding portability and scalability in distributed computing architectures, such as Grid orVolunteer Computing. The main physical results can be divided into two blocks. First, the study of 3D ion transport in ITER is presented. ITER is the largest fusion reactor (under construction) and most of the simulations so far assumethe axis-symmetry of the device. Unfortunately, this symmetry is only an approximation because of the discrete number of magnetic coils used. ISDEP has shown, using a simple model of the 3D magnetic field, how the ion confinement isaffected by this symmetry breaking. Secondly, ISDEP has been applied successfully to the study of fast ion dyn amics in fusion plasmas. The fast ions, with energies much larger than the thermal energy, are a product of the devicesheating system. Thus, a numerical predictive tool can be used to improve the heating efficiency. ISDEP has been combined with the FAFNER 2 code to study such ions in stellarator (TJ-II, LHD) and tokamak (ITER) geometries. It has alsobeen validated by experimental results. In particular, comparisons with the CNPA diagnostic in the TJ-II stellarator are remarkable

Note:This long-awaited second edition of the classical textbook on Stellar Structure and Evolution by Kippenhahn and Weigert is a thoroughly revised version of the original text. Taking into account modern observational constraints aswell as additional ph ysical effects such as mass loss and diffusion, Achim Weiss and Rudolf Kippenhahn have succeeded in bringing the book up to the state-of-the-art with respect to both the presentation of stellar physics and thepresentation and interpretation of current sop histicated stellar models. The well-received and proven pedagogical approach of the first edition has been retained. The book provides a comprehensive treatment of the physics of thestellar interior and the underlying fundamental processes and parameters. The models developed to explain the stability, dynamics and evolution of the stars are presented and great care is taken to detail the various stages in astars life. Just as the first edition, which remained a standard work for more than 20 years after i ts first publication, the second edition will be of lasting value not only for students but also for active researchers in astronomyand astrophysics

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The book is an expanded autobiography of the famous theoretical physicist Isaak Khalatnikov. He worked together with L.D. Landau at the Institute for Physical Problems lead by P.L. Kapitza. He is the co-author of L.D. Landau in anumber of important w orks. They worked together in the frame of the so-called Nuclear Bomb Project. After the death of L.D. Landau, I.M. Khalatnikov initiated the establishment of the Institute for Theoretical Physics, named in honourof L.D. Landau, within the USSR Academy of Sciences. He headed this institute from the beginning as its Director. The institute inherited almost all traditions of the Landau scientific school and played a prominent role in thedevelopment of theoretical physics. So, this is a story about how the i nstitute was created, how it worked, and about the life of the physicists in the golden age of the Soviet science. A separate chapter is devoted to todayslife of the institute and the young generation of physicists working now in science. It is an histori cally interesting book on the development of Soviet and Russian science and presents the background of the Soviet nuclear bomb programin the cold war age. In war times, Khalatnikov was a chief of the military staff of nuclear research. He writes about the internal conditions of Soviet society, the way of operating of the Soviet authorities and ways for scientists tointeract with them. It gives many interesting insights into the development of superconductivity and superfluidity. The book is written by the most experienced and best informed person among the few living Russian scientists in theenvironment of Landau. Many stories of the book were never published before and considered as top secret

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

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Astronomers' Observing Guides provide up-to-date information for amateur astronomers who want to know all about what is it they are observing. This is the basis of the first part of the book. The second part details observingtechniques for practical astronomers, working with a range of different instruments. Planetary Nebulae and How to Observe Them is intended for amateur astronomers who want to concentrate on one of the most beautiful classes ofastronomical objects in the sky. This book will help t he observer to see these celestial phenomena using telescopes of various apertures. As a Sun-like star reaches the end of its life, its hydrogen fuelstarts to run out. Itcollapses until helium nuclei begin nuclear fusion, whereuponthe starbegins to pulsat e, each pulsation throwing off a layer of the star's atmosphere. Eventually the atmosphere has all been ejected as an expanding cloud of gas, thestar's core is exposed and ultraviolet photons cause the shell of gas to glow brilliantly - that's planetary n ebula. Topics covered in this book include the astrophysical makeup of planetary nebulae, a history of their discovery,classification and description, telescopes, filters and observing techniques - in short everything anyone would need to observe planetar y nebulae. A special feature of this book is the inclusion of over 100 nebulae in our Milky WayGalaxy personally observed by the author using telescopes of various sizes, enabling readers to make up their own observing program or to follow the authors pro gram. The guide also includes photographs by the author of each object forease of identification along with their celestial coordinates, magnitudes and other pertinent information. Here is a volume that should be a welcome addition to any amateur astronom er's personal library, observing course, or school.With it in hand, you can begin sampling right away some of the most captivating objects in the sky. body>

Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Both global warming and oil shortage can be solved by controlled fusion, a clean power source that will serve mankind for millennia. The idea of hydrogen fusion as well as its difficulties are presented in non-technicallanguage to dispel the notion t hat fusion is always 50 years away. This book also summarizes the evidence for climate change and explains the principles of both fossil and green energy sources to show that fusion is the bestalternative for central-station power in the near term as well as the far future. Praise for An Indispensable Truth: How Fusion Power Can Save the Planet: In this study Professor Chen outlines the underlying physics, recent progressin achieving advanced plasmas and magnetic confinement, and hopes for the future. He recognizes the difficulties that remain in engineering a fusion reactor, but he remains optimistic regarding ultimate success, yet fearful of theconsequences were we to fail.- James R. Schlesinger, former Chairman, Atomic Energy Commission Director, Centr al Intelligence Agency Secretary of Defense and Secretary of Energy With lots of detail and examples, Chen brings thetechnical topic of fusion to life, making the book a great read for scientists and nonscientists alike.- Representative Rush Holt (D-NJ) P rofessor Chen has opened the door to energy survival for our globe. His insightful analysismakes the case for fusion energy, and he conveys both its complexity and its promise. This book is a must for all those who are concerned about the energy future of our species.- Raymond L Orbach, former Undersecretary for Science,U.S. Department of Energy This is an important book for anyone who wishes to understand the greatest challenge we face. Frank Chen makes the science of fusion and energy clear, compelling, and hugely enjoyable.- Steven Cowley,Director and CEO, Culham Centre for Fusion Energy, United Kingdom Atomic Energy Authority

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:World energy consumption has grown dramatically over the past few decades. This growth in energy demand will be driven by large increases in both economic growth and world population coupled with rising living standards inrapidly growing countries. T he last years, we routinely hear about a renaissance of nuclear energy. The recognition that nuclear power is vital to global energy security in the 21st century has been growing for some time. Themore we look to the future, the more we can expect countri es to be considering the potential benefits that expanding nuclear power has to offer for the global environment and for economic growth, IAEA Director General MohamedElBaradei said in advance of a gathering of 500 nuclear power experts assembled in Mosco w for the International Conference on Fifty Years of Nuclear Power - the Next Fifty Years. But such a renaissance is not a single-valued andsure thing. Legitimate four unresolved questions remain about high relative costs perceived adverse safety, environ mental, and health effects potential security risks stemming from proliferation and unresolved challenges inlong-term management of nuclear wastes. Failure to answer these questions adequately could imperil the nuclear revival so many have proclaimed is n ight. This proceeding examines the status and future of nuclear power because of abelief that this technology is an important option for the regional and the world countries to meet the future energy needs without emitting carbon dioxide and other atmosph eric pollutants. The objectives, addressed to government,industry, and academic leaders, discusses the interrelated technical, economic, environmental and political challenges facing a significant increase in the global nuclear power utilization over the next half century and what might bedone to overcome those challenges

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Plasma Physics gives a comprehensive introduction to the basic processes in plasmas and demonstrates that the same fundamental concepts describe cold gas-discharge plasmas, space plasmas, and hot fusion plasmas. Starting fromparticle drifts in magnet ic fields, the principles of magnetic confinement fusion are explained and compared with laser fusion. Collective processes are discussed in terms of plasma waves and instabilities. The concepts of plasmadescription by magnetohydrodynamics, kinetic theory , and particle simulation are stepwise introduced. Space charge effects in sheath regions, double layers and plasma diodes are given the necessary attention. The new fundamentalmechanisms of dusty plasmas are explored and integrated into the framework of conventional plasmas. The book concludes with a brief introduction to plasma discharges. Written by an internationally renowned researcher in experimentalplasma physics, the text keeps the mathematical apparatus simple and emphasizes the underlying concep ts. The guidelines of plasma physics are illustrated by a host of practical examples including plasma diagnostics with differentLangmuir probe methods or laser interferometry, ionospheric sounding, Faraday rotation, space thrusters, and diagnostics of dus ty plasmas. Though primarily addressing students in plasma physics, the book is easily accessible forresearchers in neighboring disciplines, such as space science, astrophysics, material science, applied physics, and electrical engineering. The text is ba sed on an introductory course to plasma physics and more specialized courses inplasma diagnostics, dusty plasmas, and plasma waves, which the author has taught at Kiel University for two decades. The pedagogical approach combines detailed explanations, a large number of illustrative figures, short summaries ofthe basics at the end of each chapter, and a selection of problems with detailed solutions. The book is primarily aimed at students meeting plasma

Date:2009
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This concise and self-contained primer is based on class-tested notes for an advanced graduate course in MHD. The broad areas chosen for presentation are the derivation and properties of the fundamental equations, equilibrium,waves and instabilities, self-organization, turbulence, and dynamos. The latter topics require the inclusion of the effects of resistivity and nonlinearity. Together, these span the range of MHD issues that have proven to be importantfor understanding magnetically confined plasm as as well as in some space and astrophysical applications. The combined length and style of the thirty-eight lectures are appropriate for complete presentation in a single semester. Anextensive appendix on extended MHD is included as further reading

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Since the invention of the laser in the 1960s, people have strived to reach higher intensities and shorter pulse durations. High intensities and ultrashort pulse durations are intimately related. Recent developments have shownthat high intensity lase rs also open the way to realize pulses with the shortest durations to date, giving birth to the field of attosecond science (1 asec = 10-18s). This book is about high-intensity lasers and their applications. Thegoal is to give an up to date introduction t o the technology behind these laser systems and to the broad range of intense laser applications. These applications include AMO (atomic molecular and optical) physics, x-ray science,attosecond science, plasma physics and particle acceleration, condensed matter science and laser micromachining, and finally even high-energy physics

Date:2005
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:It became clear in the early days of fusion research that the effects of the containment vessel (erosion of impurities) degrade the overall fusion plasma performance. Progress in controlled nuclear fusion research over thelast decade has led to magne tically confined plasmas that, in turn, are sufficiently powerful to damage the vessel structures over its lifetime. This book reviews current understanding and concepts to deal with this remaining criticaldesign issue for fusion reactors. It reviews both progress and open questions, largely in terms of available and sought-after plasma-surface interaction data and atomic/molecular data related to these plasma edge issues

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This volume assembles the texts of presentations given at the NATO-sponsored Advanced Research Workshop on Quasi-Optical Transmission of High-Power Microwaves, held in Nizhny Novgorod, Russia in February 2004. The presentationsbridge a wide range of technical areas, but share common tools of analysis and design. Applications of quasi-optics extend to the use of high-power microwavesincluding millimeter-waves for radar and communications (especiallydeep space millimeter-wave systems, space debris dete ction radar, and radar for the detection of small targets moving over heavy clutter) particle accelerators (especially for a future high-acceleration-gradient electron-positroncollider) plasma research (especially for controlled nuclear fusion and waste d econtamination) and material processing (in particular, ceramic sintering with millimeter-waves, and the coating of metal surfaces with protectivedielectric films.). Scientists and engineers working in any of these areas should benefit significantly from exposure to this broad range of timely expositions authored by many of the worlds foremost experts in these fields. Theeditors, themselves being original, principal proponents of many of the concepts discussed here, have integrated important contributions from many fields into a cohesive entity

Title:Fundamentals In Nuclear Physics [electronic resource] : From Nuclear Structure to Cosmology
Author(s): Jean-Louis Basdevant
Michel Spiro
James Rich
Date:2005
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This course explores nuclear physics and its applications ranging from the structure of nuclei and their reactions, to astrophysics and cosmology. The physics is introduced with arguments based on simple ideas such as theempirical structure of nuclea r forces and its interplay with the Pauli principle and Coulomb repulsion. The book then develops elementary nuclear models and illustrates nuclear systematics with experimental data. Reactions and decaysare discussed both phenomenologically and from the point of view of fundamental electro-weak interaction theory. The discussions of fission and fusion emphasize nuclear energy production. This leads directly into nuclear astrophysicsand nucleosynthesis. The book ends with a presentation of the latest idea s about cosmology. As a primer this course will lay the foundations for more specialized subjects within the vast domain of nuclear physics as a whole. This bookemerged from a series of topical courses the authors delivered at the Ecole Polytechnique and will be useful for advanced undergraduates and for scientists in a variety of fields
