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:Photoelectron Spectroscopy [electronic resource] : Bulk and Surface Electronic Structures
Author(s): Shigemasa Suga
Akira Sekiyama
Date:2014
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Photoelectron spectroscopy is now becoming more and more required to investigate electronic structures of various solid materials in the bulk, on surfaces as well as at buried interfaces. The energy resolution was much improved inthe last decade down to 1 meV in the low photon energy region. Now this technique is available from a few eV up to 10 keV by use of lasers, electron cyclotron resonance lamps in addition to synchrotron radiation and X-ray tubes. Highresolution angle resolved photoelectron sp ectroscopy (ARPES) is now widely applied to band mapping of materials. It attracts a wide attention from both fundamental science and material engineering. Studies of the dynamics of excitedstates are feasible by time of flight spectroscopywith fully util izing the pulse structures of synchrotron radiation as well as lasers including the free electron lasers (FEL). Spin resolved studies also made dramatic progress byusing higher efficiency spin detectors and two dimensional spin detectors. Polarization dep endent measurements in the whole photon energy spectrum of the spectra provide useful information on the symmetry of orbitals. The book dealswith the fundamental concepts and approaches for the application of this technique to materials studies. Complemen tary techniques such as inverse photoemission, photoelectron diffraction, photon spectroscopy including infrared andX-ray and scanning tunneling spectroscopy are presented. This book provides not only a wide scope of photoelectron spectroscopy of solids b ut also extends our understanding of electronic structures beyond photoelectron spectroscopy

Title:Rheophysics [electronic resource] : Matter in all its States
Author(s): Philippe Coussot
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This book presents a unified view of the physicochemical origin of the mechanical behaviour of gases, simple solids and liquids, suspensions, polymers, emulsions, foams, and granular materials, along with techniques for measuringthat behaviour. Besid es molecular materials in all their classical gaseous, solid, or liquid states, we deal daily with a number of other materials made of coarser elements such as polymers, cells, grains, bubbles, and droplets. Theytake on the familiar appearance of paints, inks, cements, muds, foams, emulsions, toothpastes, gels, etc. These materials exhibit complex structures and sometimes amazing types of mechanical behaviour, often intermediate between thoseof a simple liquid and a simple solid. From a practical standpoi nt, the aim is to analyze their internal evolution (aging, restructuring, phase separation, etc.), then to formulate these materials in accordance with the desiredproperties, and thereby devise new materials. With that aim in mind, it is crucial to unders tand how these materials deform or flow, depending on the interactions and structures formed by the elements they contain. This book isintended for students as well as more advanced researchers in mechanics, physics, chemistry, and biology. The mathematic al formalism is reduced in order to focus on physical explanations

Title:Resolving Strong Field Dynamics in Cation States of CO_2 via Optimised Molecular Alignment [electronic resource]
Author(s): Malte Oppermann
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This thesis presents an experimental study of the ultrafast molecular dynamics of CO_2^+ that are induced by a strong, near-infrared, femtosecond laser pulse. In particular, typical strong field phenomena such as tunnelingionisation, nonsequential do uble ionisation and photo-induced dissociation are investigated and controlled by employing an experimental technique called impulsive molecular alignment. Here, a first laser pulse fixes the molecule inspace, such that the molecular dynamics can be studi ed as a function of the molecular geometry with a second laser pulse.The experiments are placed within the context of the study and control of ultrafast molecular dynamics, wheresub-femtosecond (10^-15 seconds) resolution in ever larger molecular systems represents the current frontier of research. The thesis presents the required background in strong field and molecular physics, femtosecond laser architectureand experimental techniques in a clear and accessible language that does not require any previous knowledge in these fields
Contents:Introduction
Molecules in Strong Laser Fields
Lasers
Experimental Methods and Setup
Characterisation and Optimisation of Impulsive Molecular Alignment in Mixed Gas Samples

Title:Dispersion Stability, Microstructure and Phase Transition of Anisotropic Nanodiscs [electronic resource]
Author(s): Ravi Kumar Pujala
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This thesis explores the dispersion stability, microstructure and phase transitions involved in the nanoclay system.It describes the recently discovered formation of colloidal gels via two routes: the first is through phaseseparation and second is by equilibrium gelation and includes the first reported experimental observation of a system with high aspect ratio nanodiscs. The phase behavior of anisotropic nanodiscs of different aspect ratio in theirindividual and mixed states in aqueous and hydrophob ic mediais investigated. Distinct phase separation, equilibrium fluid and equilibrium gel phasesare observed in nanoclay dispersions with extensive aging.The work thenexploressolution behavior, gelation kinetics, aging dynamics and temperature-induced ord ering in the individual and mixed states of these discotic colloids. Anisotropic ordering dynamics induced by a water-air interface, waiting time andtemperature in these dispersions were studied in great detail along with aggregation behavior of nanoplate lets in hydrophobic environment of alcohol solutions

Title:Electronic Structure of Metal Phthalocyanines on Ag(100) [electronic resource]
Author(s): Cornelius Krull
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:The application of molecules in technological devices hinges on the proper understanding of their behavior on metallic electrodes or substrates. The intrinsic molecular electronic and magnetic properties are modified at a metallicinterface, and great ly depend on the atomic configuration of the molecule-metal bond. This poses certain problems, such as the lack of reproducibility in the transport properties of molecular junctions, but also offers the possibilityto induce new charge and spin configurati ons that are only present at the interface. The results presented in this thesis address this issue, providing a comprehensive overview of the influence of molecule-metal and molecule-moleculeinteractions on the electronic and magnetic properties of molec ules adsorbed on metallic substrates. Using metal-phthalocyanines (MePc), a commonly used metal-organic complex as a model system, each chapter explores different aspectsof the interaction with silver surfaces: the local adsorption geometry, self-assembly , the modifications of the electronic and magnetic characteristics due to hybridization and charge transfer, and finally the manipulation of molecularcharge and spin states by electron doping using alkali atoms moved with the STM tip

Title:Ultrafast Phenomena in Molecular Sciences [electronic resource] : Femtosecond Physics and Chemistry
Author(s): Rebeca Nalda
Luis Baares
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This book presents the latest developments in Femtosecond Chemistry and Physics for the study of ultrafast photo-induced molecular processes.Molecular systems, from the simplest H2 molecule to polymers or biologicalmacromolecules, constitute central objects of interest for Physics, Chemistry and Biology, and despite the broad range of phenomena that they exhibit, they share some common behaviors. One of the most significant of those is that manyof the processes involving chemical transformation (nucl ear reorganization, bond breaking, bond making) take place in an extraordinarily short time, in or around the femtosecond temporal scale (1 fs = 10-15 s). A number of experimentalapproaches - very particularly the developments in the generation and manipu lation of ultrashort laser pulses - coupled with theoretical progress, provide the ultrafast scientist with powerful tools to understand matter and itsinteraction with light, at this spatial and temporal scale. This book is an attempt to reunite some of t he state-of-the-art research that is being carried out in the field of ultrafast molecular science, from theoretical developments,through new phenomena induced by intense laser fields, to the latest techniques applied to the study of molecular dynamics

Title:Transport Properties in Non-Equilibrium and Anomalous Systems [electronic resource]
Author(s): Dario Villamaina
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:The study of fluctuations in statistical physics has a long history, and a general theory is well established, connecting fluctuations to response properties of equilibrium systems. Remarkably, this framework fails as soon as somecurrent is flowing a cross the system, driving it out of equilibrium. The presence of currents is quite common in nature and produces rich phenomena which are far from being included in a general framework. This thesis focuses on thisgeneral problem by studying different mode ls such as granular materials and systems exhibiting anomalous diffusion and shows how the generalized response techniques can be successfully used to catch the relevant degrees of freedom thatdrive the systems out of equilibrium. This study paves the way to the use of the generalized fluctuation relations in an operative way, in order to extract information from a non-equilibrium system and to build the correspondingphenomenological theory

Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This volume describes the most recent findings on the structure of ILs interpreted through cutting-edge experimental and theoretical methods. Research in the field of ionic liquids (ILs) keeps a fast and steady pace. Since thesenew-generation molten salts first appeared in the chemistry and physics landscape, a large number of new compounds has been synthesized. Most of themdisplay unexpected behaviour and possess stunning properties. The coverage in thisbook ranges from the mesoscopic structure of I Ls to their interaction with proteins. The reader will learn how diffraction techniques (small and large angle X-Ray and neutron scattering, powder methods), X-Ray absorption spectroscopies(EXAFS/XANES), optical methods (IR, RAMAN), NMR and calorimetric m ethods can help the study of ILs, both as neat liquids and inmixtures with other compounds. It will enable the reader to choose the best method to suit theirexperimental needs. A detailed survey of theoretical methods, both quantum-chemical and classical, and of their predictive power will accompany the exposition of experimental ones. This book is a must read for postgraduate students,for post-docs, and for researchers who are interested in understanding the structural properties of ILs

Title:Studying Complex Surface Dynamical Systems Using Helium-3 Spin-Echo Spectroscopy [electronic resource]
Author(s): Barbara A. J Lechner
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Chemical reactions and growth processes on surfaces depend on the diffusion and re-orientation of the adsorbate molecules. A fundamental understanding of the forces guiding surface motion is thus of utmost importance for theadvancement of many fields of science and technology. To date, our understanding of the principles underlying surface dynamics remains extremely limited, due to the difficulties involved in measuring these processes experimentally. Thehelium-3 spin-echo (HeSE) technique is uniquel y capable of probing such surface dynamical phenomena. The present thesis extends the field of application of HeSE from atomic and small molecular systems to more complex systems.Improvements to the supersonic helium beam source, a key component of the sp ectrometer, as well as a detailed investigation of a range of five-membered aromatic adsorbate species are presented. The thesis provides a comprehensivedescription of many aspects of the HeSE method - instrumentation, measurement and data analysis - and as such offers a valuable introduction for newcomers to the field

Title:Towards Autonomous Soft Matter Systems [electronic resource] : Experiments on Membranes and Active Emulsions
Author(s): Shashi Thutupalli
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This book focuses on the assembly, organization and resultant collective dynamics of soft matter systems maintained away from equilibrium byan energy flux. Living matter is the ultimate example of such systems, which arecomprised of different constit uents on very different scales (ions, nucleic acids, proteins, cells). The result of their diverse interactions, maintained using the energy from physiological processes, is a fantastically well-organizedand dynamic whole. This work describes results from minimal, biomimetic systems and primarily investigates membranes and active emulsions, as well as key aspects of both soft matter and non-equilibrium phenomena. It isshown thatthese minimal reconstitutions are already capable of a range of complex behavi our such as nonlinear electric responses, chemical communication and locomotion. These studies will bring us closer to a fundamental understanding of complexsystems by reconstituting key aspects of their form and function in simple model systems. Further, they may also serve as the first technological steps towards artificial soft functional matter

Title:Length-Scale Dependent Phonon Interactions [electronic resource]
Author(s): Subhash L Shind
Gyaneshwar P Srivastava
Date:2014
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This book presents a comprehensive description of phonons and their interactions in systems with different dimensions and length scales. Internationally-recognized leaders describe theories and measurements of phononinteractions in relation to the de sign of materials with exotic properties such as metamaterials, nano-mechanical systems, next-generation electronic, photonic, and acoustic devices, energy harvesting, optical information storage,and applications of phonon lasers in a variety of fields. T he emergence of techniques for control of semiconductor properties and geometry has enabled engineers to design structures in which functionality is derived from controllingelectron behavior. As manufacturing techniques have greatly expanded the list of a vailable materials and the range of attainable length scales, similar opportunities now exist for designing devices whose functionality is derived fromcontrolling phonon behavior. However, progress in this area is hampered by gaps in our knowledge of phon on transport across and along arbitrary interfaces, the scattering of phonons with crystal defects, interface roughness andmass-mixing, delocalized electrons/collective electronic excitations, and solid acoustic vibrations when these occur in structures w ith small physical dimensions. This book provides a comprehensive description of phonons and theirinteractions in systems with different dimensions and length scales. Theories and measurements of phonon interactions are described in relation to the design of materials with exotic properties such as metamaterials, nano-mechanicalsystems, next-generation electronic, photonic, and acoustic devices, energy harvesting, optical information storage, and applications of phonon lasers in a variety of fields. First book to cover phonon dispersion relations and phononinteractions at different length scales Discusses both theory and measurements of phonon transport and its relevance to materials properties Desc

Title:Photo-Excited Charge Collection Spectroscopy [electronic resource] : Probing the traps in field-effect transistors

Note:Solid state field-effect devices such as organic and inorganic-channel thin-film transistors (TFTs) have been expected to promote advances in display and sensor electronics. The operational stabilities of such TFTs are thusimportant, strongly dependi ng on the nature and density of charge traps present at the channel/dielectric interface or in the thin-film channel itself. This book contains how to characterize these traps, starting from the devicephysics of field-effect transistor (FET). Unlike conve ntional analysis techniques which are away from well-resolving spectral results, newly-introduced photo-excited charge-collection spectroscopy (PECCS) utilizes the photo-inducedthreshold voltage response from any type of working transistor devices with or ganic-, inorganic-, and even nano-channels, directly probing on the traps. So, our technique PECCS has been discussed through more than ten refereed-journalpapers in the fields of device electronics, applied physics, applied chemistry, nano-devices and ma terials science, finally finding a need to be summarized with several chapters in a short book. Device physics and instrumentations ofPECCS are well addressed respectively, in the first and second chapters, for the next chapters addressing real applicatio ns to organic, oxide, and nanostructured FETs. This book would provide benefits since its contents are not onlyeducational and basic principle-supportive but also applicable and in-house operational

Title:Non-Equilibrium Thermodynamics in Multiphase Flows [electronic resource]
Author(s): Roberto Mauri
Date:2013
Publisher:Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Non-equilibrium thermodynamics is a general framework that allows the macroscopic description of irreversible processes. This book introduces non-equilibrium thermodynamics and its applications to the rheology of multiphaseflows. The subject is relev ant to graduate students in chemical and mechanical engineering, physics and material science. This book is divided into two parts. The first part presents the theory of non-equilibrium thermodynamics,reviewing its essential features and showing, when pos sible, some applications. The second part of this book deals with how the general theory can be applied to model multiphase flows and, in particular, how to determine theirconstitutive relations. Each chapter contains problems at the end, the solutions of which are given at the end of the book. No prior knowledge of statistical mechanics is required the necessary prerequisites are elements of transportphenomena and on thermodynamics. The style of the book is mathematical, but nonetheless it remains very r eadable and anchored in the physical world rather than becoming too abstract. Though it is up-to-date and includes recentimportant developments, there is a lot of classical material in the book, albeit presented with unprecedented clarity and coherence. T he first six chapters are actually a very good introduction to the theory underlying many phenomenain soft matter physics, beyond the focus on flow and transport of the later chapters of the book.

Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This monograph covers the major available routes of theoretical research of nucleation phenomenaphenomenological models, semi-phenomenological theories, density functional theories and microscopic approacheswithemphasis on the formation of liquid dro plets from a metastable vapor. It also illustrates the application of these various approaches to experimentally relevantproblems. In spite of familiarity with the involved phenomena, it is still not possible to accurately calculate nucleation rate, as t he properties of thedaughter phase are insufficiently known. Existing theories based upon the classical nucleation theory have on the whole explained the trends in behavior correctly. However, they often fail spectacularly to account for new data, inparti cular in the case of binary or, more generally, multi-component nucleation. This book challenges such classical models and provides a more satisfactory description by using density functional theory and microscopic computersimulations to describe the prop erties of small clusters. Also, semi-phenomenological models are proposed that relate the properties of small clusters to known properties of the bulk phases. This monograph is anintroduction as well as a compendium to researchers in the areas of soft con densed matter physics, chemical physics, graduate and post-graduate students in physics and chemistry starting on research in the area of nucleation, and toexperimentalists wishing to gain a better understanding of the recent developments being made to ac count for their data

Note:This is an exciting stage in the development of organic electronics. It is no longer an area of purely academic interest as increasingly real applications are being developed, some of which are beginning to come on-stream. Areasthat have already been commercially developed or which are under intensive development include organic light emitting diodes (for flat panel displays and solid state lighting), organic photovoltaic cells, organic thin film transistors(for smart tags and flat panel displays) an d sensors. Within the family of organic electronic materials, liquid crystals are relative newcomers. The first electronically conducting liquid crystals were reported in 1988 but already asubstantial literature has developed. The advantage of liquid crys talline semiconductors is that they have the easy processability of amorphous and polymeric semiconductors but they usually have higher charge carrier mobilities. Theirmobilities do not reach the levels seen in crystalline organics but they circumvent all of the difficult issues of controlling crystal growth and morphology. Liquid crystals self-organise, they can be aligned by fields and surfaceforces and, because of their fluid nature, defects in liquid crystal structures readily self-heal. With these ma tters in mind this is an opportune moment to bring together a volume on the subject of Liquid CrystallineSemiconductors. The field is already too large to cover in a comprehensive manner so the aim has been to bring together contributions from leading res earchers which cover the main areas of the chemistry (synthesis andstructure/function relationships), physics (charge transport mechanisms and optical properties) and potential applications in photovoltaics, organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs) and organ ic field-effect transistors (OFETs). This bookwill provide a useful introduction to the field for those in both industry and academia and it is hoped that it will help to stimulate future developm

Note:Organic lasers are broadly tunable coherent sources, potentially compact, convenient and manufactured at low-costs. Appeared in the mid 60s as solid-state alternatives for liquid dye lasers, they recently gained a newdimension after the demonstration of organic semiconductor lasers in the 90's. More recently, new perspectives appeared at the nanoscale, with organic polariton and surface plasmon lasers. After a brief reminder to laser physics, afirst chapter exposes what makes organic solid-state orga nic lasers specific. The laser architectures used in organic lasers are then reviewed, with a state-of-the-art review of the performances of devices with regard to output power,threshold, lifetime, beam quality etc. A survey of the recent trends in the fi eld is given, highlighting the latest developments with a special focus on the challenges remaining for achieving direct electrical pumping of organicsemiconductor lasers. A last chapter covers the applications of organic solid-state lasers

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book summarizes the experimental evidence and modern classical and theoretical approaches in understanding the vitreous state, from structural problems, over equilibrium and non-equilibrium thermodynamics, to statisticalphysics. Glasses, and esp ecially silicate glasses, are only the best known representatives of this particular physical state of matter. Other typical representatives include organic polymer glasses, and many other easily vitrifyingorganic and inorganic substances, technically imp ortant materials, amidst them vitreous water and vitrified aqueous solutions, and also many metallic alloy systems. Some of these systems only form glasses under particular conditions,e.g. through ultra-rapid cooling. This book describes the properties an d the formation of both every-day technical glasses and especially of such more exotic forms of vitreous matter. Itis a unique source of knowledge and new ideasfor materials scientists, engineers and researchers working on condensed matter. The new editio n emphasizes latest experimental findings and modern theories, explaining the kinetics of glass formation, the relaxation and stabilizationof glasses and their crystallization in terms of new models, derived from the framework of the thermodynamics of irr eversible processes. It shows how the properties of common technical glasses, window glass, or the vitreous ice kernelof comets can be used to develop a new understanding of the existence of matter in various, unusualforms. The developed theoretical model scan find application even in the description of lasers and in unusual processes in theuniverse

Note:This book deals with basic aspects of polymer electronics and optoelectronics. There is an enormous world-wide effort both in basic scientific research as well as in industrial development in the area of organic electronics. It isbecoming increasingl y clear that, if devices based on organic materials are ever going to have a significant relevance beyond being a cheap replacement for inorganic semiconductors, there will be a need to understand interfaceformation, film growth and functionality. A contr ol of these aspects will allow the realisation of totally new device concepts exploiting the enormous flexibility inherent in organic chemistry. In this book we focus onoligomeric/molecular films as we believe that the control of molecular structures and interfaces provides highly defined systems which allow, on the one hand the study of the basic physics and on the other hand to find the importantparameters necessary to improve organic devices

Title:Dissipative Solitons in Reaction Diffusion Systems [electronic resource] : Mechanisms, Dynamics, Interaction

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Dissipative solitons are local excitations of nonlinear continuous systems which emerge due to a flux of energy or matter. Although they are continuous entities, dissipative solitons in reaction diffusion systems behave likeparticles: They are genera ted or annihilated as a whole, propagate with a well-defined velocity and interact with each other, which can lead to the formation of bound states, e.g. This book introduces dissipative solitons in thecontext of pattern formation, discusses experimental findings in chemical and physical systems, deduces a phenomenological model of dissipative solitons from basic principles, analyzes their dynamics and interaction from a theoreticalpoint of view and verifies these finding in an experimental system by mean s of stochastic data analysis. Finally, the mechanisms of annihilation and generation are explained on the basis of simulations. Theoretical considerations focuson a certain family of reaction diffusion models with the result such that basic and advanced analytical methods can be introduced from scratch and can be followed down tocomputational results

Title:Energy Level Alignment and Electron Transport Through Metal/Organic Contacts [electronic resource] : From Interfaces to Molecular Electronics

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:In recent years, ever more electronic devices have started to exploit the advantages of organic semiconductors. The work reported in this thesis focuses on analyzing theoretically the energy level alignment of differentmetal/organic interfaces, neces sary to tailor devices with good performance. Traditional methods based on density functional theory (DFT), are not appropriate for analyzing them because they underestimate the organic energy gap andfail to correctly describe the van der Waals forces. Si nce the size of these systems prohibits the use of more accurate methods, corrections to those DFT drawbacks are desirable. In this work a combination of a standard DFT calculationwith the inclusion of the charging energy (U) of the molecule, calculated f rom first principles, is presented. Regarding the dispersion forces, incorrect long range interaction is substituted by a van der Waals potential. With thesecorrections, the C60, benzene, pentacene, TTF and TCNQ/Au(111) interfaces are analyzed, both for s ingle molecules and for a monolayer. The results validate the induced density of interface states model

Note:This work representsone of the first comprehensive attempts to seamlessly integrate two highly active interdisciplinary domains in soft matter science microfluidics and liquid crystals (LCs). Motivated by the lack offundamental experiments, Dr. Seng upta initiated systematic investigation of LC flows at micro scales,gaining new insights that are also suggestive ofnovel applications. By tailoring the surface anchoring of the LC molecules and thechannel dimensions, different topological constraintswere controllably introduced within the microfluidic devices. These topological constraintswere further manipulated using a flow field, paving the way for TopologicalMicrofluidics. Harnessing topologyon a microfluidic platform, as described in this thesis,ope ns up capabilities beyond the conventional viscous-dominated microfluidics, promising potential applications in targeted delivery andsorting systems, self-assembled motifs, and novel metamaterial fabrications

Note:Theoretical investigations of atoms and molecules interacting with pulsed or continuous wave lasers up to atomic field strengths on the order of 10^16 W/cm are leading to an understanding of many challenging experimentaldiscoveries.This book deals wi th the basics of femtosecond physics and goes up to the latest applications of new phenomena. The book presents an introduction to laser physics with mode-locking and pulsed laser operation. The solutionof the time-dependent Schrdinger equation is discuss ed both analytically and numerically.The basis for the non-perturbative treatment of laser-matter interaction in the book is the numerical solution of the time-dependentSchrdinger equation. The light field is treated classically, and different possible ga uges are discussed. Physical phenonema, ranging from Rabi-oscillations in two-level systems to the ionization of atoms, the generation of highharmonics, the ionization and dissociation of molecules as well as the control of chemical reactions are presente d and discussed on a fundamental level. In this way the theoretical background for state of the art experiments withstrong and short laser pulses is given. The text is augmented by more than thirty exercises, whose worked-out solutions are given in the la st chapter. Some detailed calculations are performed in the appendices. Furthermore, eachchapter ends with references to more specialized literature

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The state-of-the-art in the theoretical statistical physics treatment of the Janus fluid is reported with a bridge between new research results published in journal articles and a contextual literature review. Recent Monte Carlosimulations on the Ker n and Frenkel model of the Janus fluid have revealed that in the vapor phase, below the critical point, there is the formation of preferred inert clusters made up of a well-defined number of particles: themicelles and the vesicles. This is responsible for a re-entrant gas branch of the gas-liquid binodal. Detailed account of this findings are given in the first chapter where the Janus fluid is introduced as a product of newsophisticated synthesis laboratory techniques. In the second chapter a cluster theo ry is developed to approximate the exact clustering properties stemming from the simulations. It is shown that the theory is able to reproducesemi-quantitatively the micellization phenomenon

Title:Thermodynamics of Crystalline States [electronic resource]
Author(s): Minoru Fujimoto
Date:2013
Edition:2nd ed. 2013
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource

Note:Thermodynamics is a well-established discipline of physics for properties of matter in thermal equilibrium with the surroundings. Applying to crystals, however, the laws encounter undefined properties of crystal lattice, whichtherefore need to be det ermined for a clear and well-defined description of crystalline states. Thermodynamics of Crystalline States explores the roles played by order variables and dynamic lattices in crystals in a wholly new way. Thebook begins by clarifying basic concepts for stable crystals. Next, binary phase transitions are discussed to study collective motion of order variables, as described mostly as classical phenomena. New to this edition is theexamination of magnetic crystals, where magnetic symmetry is essential for magnetic phase transitions. The multi-electron system is also discussed theoretically, as a quantum-mechanical example, for superconductivity in metalliccrystals. Throughout the book, the role played by the lattice is emphasized and studied in-depth. Ther modynamics of Crystalline States is an introductory treatise and textbook on mesoscopic phenomena in solid states, constituting abasic subject in condensed matter physics. While this book serves as a guide for advanced students in physics and material sci ence, it can also be useful as a reference for all professionals in related fields. Minoru Fujimoto is authorof Physics of Classical Electromagnetism (Springer, 2007) and The Physics of Structural Phase Transitions (Springer, 2005)

Note:Fundamental Aspects of Plasma Chemical Physics: Tranpsort develops basic and advanced concepts of plasma transport to the modern treatment of the Chapman-Enskog method for the solution of the Boltzmann transport equation. Thebook invites the reader t o consider actual problems of the transport of thermal plasmas with particular attention to the derivation of diffusion- and viscosity-type transport cross sections, stressing the role of resonantcharge-exchange processes in affecting the diffusion-type c ollision calculation of viscosity-type collision integrals. A wide range of topics is then discussed including (1) the effect of non-equilibrium vibrational distributions onthe transport of vibrational energy, (2) the role of electronically excited states in the transport properties of thermal plasmas, (3) the dependence of transport properties on the multitude of Saha equations for multi-temperatureplasmas, and (4) the effect of the magnetic field on transport properties. Throughout the book, worked exam ples are provided to clarify concepts and mathematical approaches. This book is the second of a series of three published by theBari group on fundamental aspects of plasma chemical physics. The first book, Fundamental Aspects of Plasma Chemical Physics: T hermodynamics, is dedicated to plasma thermodynamics and the third, Fundamental Aspects of Plasma ChemicalPhysics: Kinetics, deals with plasma kinetics

Title:Thin Liquid Films [electronic resource] : Dewetting and Polymer Flow

Date:2012
Publisher:Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book is a treatise on the thermodynamic and dynamic properties of thin liquid films at solid surfaces and, in particular, their rupture instabilities. For the quantitative study of these phenomena, polymer thin films havenproven to be an invalua ble experimental model system. What is it that makes thin film instabilities special and interesting, warranting a whole book? There are several answers to this. Firstly, thin polymeric films have an importantrange of applications, and with the increase in the number of technologies available to produce and to study them, this range is likely to expand. An understanding of their instabilities is therefore of practical relevance for thedesign of such films. Secondly, thin liquid films are an interdiscipl inary research topic. Interdisciplinary research is surely not an end to itself, but in this case it leads to a fairly heterogeneous community of theoretical andexperimental physicists, engineers, physical chemists, mathematicians and others working on th e topic. It justifies attempting to write a text which aims at a coherent, theoretical presentation of the field which researchers acrosstheir specialised communities might be interested in. And finally, thin liquid films are an interesting laboratory fo r a theorist to confront a well-established theory, hydrodynamics, with its limits. Liquids at surfaces take noticeof the surface they are placed upon, and this is reflected in their dynamics. And the polymers, when confined to thin films, can imprint mol ecular properties on the film dynamics. The material in the book is arranged in two Parts.Part I covers the basics of wetting and dewetting phenomena, and is of interest to researchers working in the field also outside of polymeric systems. It can be rea d as a brief introduction into the theory of wetting phase transitions.Part II delves exclusively into polymeric thin films, their mathematical description, and the confrontation with experiment

Title:Thermodynamics for Chemists, Physicists and Engineers [electronic resource]

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Thermodynamics is an essential part of chemical physics and is of fundamental importance in physics, chemistry and engineering courses. This textbook takes an interdisciplinary approach to the subject and is therefore suitablefor undergraduates in al l those courses. The book is an introduction to phenomenological thermodynamics and its applications to phase transitions and chemical reactions, with some references to statistical mechanics. It strikes thebalance between the rigorousness of the Callen t ext and phenomenological approach of the Atkins text. The book is divided in three parts. The first introduces the postulates and laws of thermodynamics and complements these initialexplanations with practical examples. The second part is devoted to appli cations of thermodynamics to phase transitions in pure substances and mixtures. The third part covers thermodynamic systems in which chemical reactions takeplace. There are some sections on more advanced topics such as thermodynamic potentials, natural va riables, non-ideal mixtures and electrochemical reactions, which make this book of suitable also to post-graduate students. RobertHoyst (1963) is a professor at the Institute of Physical Chemistry Polish Academy of Sciences. He specializes in statistical physics, physical chemistry, biologistics and soft matter physics. He has published 182 papers and 2 books.He presented his works at multiple universities/institutes, e.g. Harvard, MIT, University of Chicago, ESPCI-Paris, ENS-Paris, several Max Planck Ins titutes, University of Tokyo, Oxford and Cambridge. He has over 17 yearsexperience in teaching thermodynamics for undergraduate students. Andrzej Poniewierski (1951), professor at the Institute of Physical Chemistry Polish Academy of Sciences published 53 papers and two books, specializes in soft matterand statistical physics, liquid crystals and applications of density functional theory to complex fluids.
