Newton's Optical Writings: A Guided Study (Masterworks of Discovery)

Isaac Newton’s vintage writings on mild and optics are the center of this quantity within the sequence, Masterworks of Discovery: Guided experiences of serious Texts in technology. The cutting edge sequence is aimed toward making the good works of medical discovery available to scholars and lay readers.  for every quantity, exotic historians of technological know-how have rigorously chosen unique texts (or extracts) and observed them with interpretive statement, explanatory notes, and bio-bibliographical fabric.

Electron Microscopy in Heterogeneous Catalysis

Catalysis is likely one of the most vital applied sciences within the business global, controlling greater than ninety% of commercial chemical procedures and crucial for large-scale construction of plastics and gas. Exploring the commonest kind of catalysis utilized in undefined, Electron Microscopy in Heterogeneous Catalysis offers a coherent account of heterogeneous catalytic strategies and catalyst floor constitution on the atomic scale as elucidated by way of electron microscopy ideas.

Femtosecond optical frequency comb : principle, operation, and applications

Over the past few years, there was a convergence among the fields of ultrafast technology, nonlinear optics, optical frequency metrology, and precision laser spectroscopy. those fields were constructing principally independently because the beginning of the laser, attaining striking degrees of functionality.

SPS/UTILITY POWER POOL INTERFACE (Winer, 1977) T h e large p o w e r o u t p u t potential of the S P S will require careful design of the utility p o w e r pool interface to reduce the impact on the stability of a total utility system. Electrical p o w e r grids are designed to provide this stability of p o w e r supply to the user by incorporating r e d u n d a n t installations of reliable e q u i p m e n t . 1 day per year. 1 day per year using terrestrial e q u i p m e n t to meet typical loads is usually 2 5 % greater than the peak yearly d e m a n d in any o n e p o w e r pool.
