Nuclear quadrupole resonance (NQR) is unique in many ways. It operates in a safe AMradio frequency range, and it can remotely detect unique fingerprint (NQR spectrum) of many explosives, such as TNT or RDX. As such, the detection of target does not depend on the shape or material of the container, or thepresence of metallic object such as triggers etc. Spectra o f chemically similar compounds differ enough that their presence never causes interference or false alarms. Unfortunately, widespread use is prevented due to low sensitivity,radiofrequency interference from the noisy environment, and inability to detect l iquid explosives. This book presents current state of the art of the attempts to overcome NQR sensitivity problem, either by increasing the strengths ofsignals generated, or by increasing the specificity of the technique through a better understanding of the factors that affect the quadrupolar parameters of specific explosives. The use of these specific quadrupolar parameters isdemonstrated on signal processing techniques that can detect weak signals, which are hidden in a noisy background. The problem of differentiation of liquid explosives and benign liquids in closed containers is approached bymeasurements of different nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) parameters. As shown, a couple of solutions has reached a prototype stage and could find their use in a near future Contents: Part 1 Nuclear Quadrupole Resonance Detection of Solids Further improvement of NQR technique for detection of illicit substances An Overview of NQR Signal Detection Algorithms Nuclear Quadrupole Resonance of Pantaerythritol Tetranitrate (PETN) in Different Compositions Cross relaxation enhanced NQR of ammonium nitrate in low magnetic field Investigating homonuclear broadening in NQR with Carr Purcell Meiboom Gill performed on p chloroaniline Size Effect in 14N Nuclear Quadrupole Resonance Spectroscopy NQR Detection of Sodium Nitrite Recrystallized in Wood Part 2 Nuclear ISBN: 9789400772656 Series: eBooks Series: SpringerLink Series: NATO Science for Peace and Security Series B: Physics and Biophysics, 1874-6500 Series: Physics and Astronomy (Springer-11651) Keywords: Spectroscopy Availability: Click here to see Library holdings or inquire at Circ Desk (x3401) Click to reserve this book Be sure to include your ID please.

Although nanoparticulatesystems are of signific ant interest in various scientific and technological areas, there is little known about the safety of these nanoscale objects. It has now been established that the surfaces of nanoparticles are immediatelycovered by biomolecules (e.g. proteins, ions, and enzymes) upon their entrance into a biological medium. This interaction with the biological medium modulates the surface of the nanoparticles, conferring a biological identity totheir surfaces (referred to as a corona), which determines the subsequent cel lular/tissue responses. The new interface between the nanoparticles and the biological medium/proteins, called bio-nano interface, has been veryrarely studied in detail to date, though the interest in this topic is rapidly growing. In this book, the impor tance of the physiochemical characteristics of nanoparticles for the properties of the protein corona is discussed indetail, followed by comprehensive descriptions of the methods for assessing the protein-nanoparticle interactions. The advantages and limi tations of available corona evaluation methods (e.g. spectroscopy methods, mass spectrometry,nuclear magnetic resonance, electron microscopy, X-ray crystallography, and differential centrifugal sedimentation) are examined in detail, followed by a discussi on of the possibilities for enhancing the current methods and a call fornew techniques. Moreover, the advantages and disadvantages of protein-nanoparticle interaction phenomena are explored and discussed, with a focus on the biological impacts Note: Springer eBooks Contents: The Biological Significance of Nano interactions Nanoparticle and Protein Corona Protein Corona: Applications and Challenges Analytical Methods for Corona Evaluations ISBN: 9783642375552 Series: e-books Series: SpringerLink (Online service) Series: Springer Series in Biophysics, 0932-2353 : v15 Series: Physics and Astronomy (Springer-11651) Keywords: Life sciences , Toxicology , Biochemistry , RNA-ligand interactions , Nanotechnology Availability: Click here to see Library holdings or inquire at Circ Desk (x3401) Click to reserve this book Be sure to include your ID please.

Of particular interest are NMR 1/T1 relaxation rates, which measure how fast energystored in magnetic nuclei is t ransferred to surrounding electrons. This thesis develops a detailed, quantitative theory of NMR 1/T1 relaxation rates, and shows for the first time how they could be used to measure the speed at whichenergy travels in a wide range of magnetic materials. This theory is used to make predictions forQuantum Spin Nematics, an exotic form of quantum order analogous to a liquid crystal. In order to do so, it is first necessary tounravel how spin nematics transport energy. This thesis proposes a new way to do this, based on the description of quarks in high-energy physics.

X-ray imaging was rapidly adopted in hospitals around the world. However, it was the advent ofcomputerized data and image p rocessing that made revolutionary new imaging modalities possible. Today, cross-sections and three-dimensional reconstructions of the organs inside the human body is possible with unprecedented speed,detail and quality. This book provides an introduction into the principles of image formation of key medical imaging modalities: X-ray projection imaging, x-ray computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, ultrasound imaging, andradionuclide imaging. Recent developments in optical imaging are also covered . For each imaging modality, the introduction into the physical principles and sources of contrast is provided, followed by the methods of image formation,engineering aspects of the imaging devices, and a discussion of strengths and limitations of the mod ality. With this book, the reader gains a broad foundation of understanding and knowledge how todays medical imaging devicesoperate. In addition, the chapters in this book can serve as an entry point for the in-depth study of individual modalities by prov iding the essential basics of each modality in a comprehensive and easy-to-understand manner. As such,this book is equally attractive as a textbook for undergraduate or graduate biomedical imaging classes and as a reference and self-study guide for more s pecialized in-depth studies Note: Springer eBooks Contents: Introduction X ray Projection Imaging Computed Tomography Nuclear Imaging Magnetic Resonance Imaging Ultrasound Imaging Trends in Medical Imaging Technology References Index ISBN: 9781461470731 Series: e-books Series: SpringerLink (Online service) Series: SpringerBriefs in Physics, 2191-5423 Series: Physics and Astronomy (Springer-11651) Keywords: Radiology, Medical , Biomedical engineering Availability: Click here to see Library holdings or inquire at Circ Desk (x3401) Click to reserve this book Be sure to include your ID please.

These interactionsbetween physics and biolo gy form a two-way street with physics providing new tools and concepts for understanding life, while biological systems can yield new insights into the physics of complex systems. To address the challenges ofthis interdisciplinary area, The Physics of Pro teins: An Introduction to Biological Physics and Molecular Biophysics is divided into three interconnected sections. In Parts I and II, early chapters introduce the terminology anddescribe the main biological systems that physicists will encounter. Simila rities between biomolecules, glasses, and solids are stressed with an emphasis on the fundamental concepts of living systems. The central section (Parts III andIV) delves into the dynamics of complex systems. A main theme is the realization that biologica l systems, in particular proteins, do not exist in unique conformations but can assume a very large number of slightly different structures.This complexity is captured in the concept of a free energy landscape and leads to the conclusion that fluctuations are crucial for the functioning of biological systems. The final chapter of this section challenges the reader to applythese concepts to a problem that appears in the current literature. An extensive series of appendices (Part V) provide descriptions of the key physical tools and analytical methods that have proven powerful in the study of the physicsof proteins. The appendices are designed to be consulted throughout the section on protein dynamics without breaking the deductive flow of the logic in the central section of the book Note: Springer eBooks Contents: Part I: Biomolecules The Hierarchy of Living Things Information and Function Biomolecules, Spin Glasses, Glasses, and Solids Proteins Nucleic Acids The Genetic Code Lipids and Membranes Part II: Spatial Structure of Proteins: Measurementand Consequence Scattering of Photons for Imaging: Diffraction and Microscopy X Ray Diffraction Pulsed Nuclear Magnetic Resonance and Molecular Structure Determination in Solution The Secondary Structure Tertiary Structure of Proteins Myoglobin and Hemoglobin Part III: The Entergylandscape and Dynamics of Proteins ISBN: 9781441910448 Series: e-books Series: SpringerLink (Online service) Series: Biological and Medical Physics, Biomedical Engineering, 1618-7210 Series: Physics and Astronomy (Springer-11651) Keywords: Medicine , Biochemistry , Proteomics , Biomedical engineering Availability: Click here to see Library holdings or inquire at Circ Desk (x3401) Click to reserve this book Be sure to include your ID please.

Since the NQR frequency is insensitive tolong-range variations in com position, mixing explosives with other materials, such as the plasticizers in plastic explosives, makes no difference. The NQR signal strength varies linearly with the amount of explosive, and is independentof its distribution within the volume monitored. NQR spots explosive types in configurations missed by the X-ray imaging method. But if NQR is so good, why it is not used everywhere? Its main limitation is the low signal-to-noiseratio, particularly with the radio-frequency interference that exists in a field environment, NQR polarization being much weaker than that from an external magnetic field. The distinctive signatures are there, but are difficult toextract from the noise. In addition, the high selectivity is partly a disadvantage, as it is hard t o build a multichannel system necessary to cover a wide range of target substances. Moreover, substances fully screened by metallicenclosures, etc. are difficult to detect.

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. It is typical that Solid State Physicsemphasizes how physics properties link to electronic structure. We have re tained the term Solid State Physics, even though Condensed Matter Physics is more commonly used. Condensed Matter Physics includes liquids and non-crystallinesolids such as glass, which we shall not discuss in detail. Modern Solid State Physics came of ag e in the late thirties and forties, and had its most extensive expansion with the development of the transistor, integrated circuits, andmicroelectronics. Most of microelectronics however is limited to the properties of inhomogeneously doped semiconductor s. Solid State Physics includes many other areas of course among the largest of these are ferromagnetic materials,and superconductors. Just a little less than half of all working physicists are in Condensed Matter. A course in Solid State Physics typicall y begins with three broad areas: (1) How and why atoms bind together to form solids, (2)Lattice Vibrations and Phonons, and (3) Electrons in Solids. One would then typically apply the above to (4) Interactions especially of electrons with phonons, (5) Met als, the Fermi Surface and Alloys, (6) Semiconductors, (7)Magnetism, (8) Superconductivity, (9) Dielectrics and Ferroelectrics, (10) Optical Properties, (11) Defects, and (12) Certain other modern topi Note: Springer eBooks Contents: Crystal Binding ans Structure Lattice Vibrations and Thermal Properties Electrons in Periodic Potentials The Interaction of Electrons and Lattice Vibrations Metals, Alloys, and the Fermi Surface Semiconductors Magnetism, Magnons, and Magnetic Resonance Superconductivity Dielectrics and Ferroelectrics Optical Properties of Solids Defects in Solids Current Topics in Solid Condensed Matter Physics ISBN: 9783540349334 Series: e-books Series: SpringerLink (Online service) Series: Physics and Astronomy (Springer-11651) Keywords: Condensed matter , Particles (Nuclear physics) Availability: Click here to see Library holdings or inquire at Circ Desk (x3401) Click to reserve this book Be sure to include your ID please.
