Grundlagen der Elektronenoptik by Walter Glaser

By Walter Glaser

Das vorliegende Buch beabsichtigt, in lehrbuchmäßiger Darstellung die theo­ retischen Grundlagen der Elektronenoptik darzulegen. Es sollen insbesondere die Methoden der theoretischen Elektronenoptik so ausführlich dargestellt werden, daß der Leser die weitere" Spezialliteratur kritisch verfolgen und selbständige Untersuchungen durchführen kann. Dem Techniker soll das Buch vor allem eine Hilfe bei der Lösung von Dimensionierungsfragen bieten. Besondere Vorkenntnisse werden weder aus der Elektronenphysik noch aus der geometrischen Optik vorausgesetzt. Die Darstellung kann vielmehr auch dem Studenten zur Einführung in diese Fachgebiete dienen, ja im dritten Teil auch einen ersten Zugang zur Wellenmechanik eröffnen. Die Wellenmechanik wurde in möglichst anschaulicher Weise als eine natürliche, durch neue experi­ mentelle Erfahrungen geforderte Verallgemeinerung der klassischen Mechanik entwickelt. Da an der jungen Wissenschaft der Elektronenoptik in gleicher Weise der Physiker, Techniker, Optiker und der Vertreter der angewandten Mathematik interessiert sind, das Buch additionally zwischen verschiedenen Disziplinen eine gewisse Mittlerrolle zu spielen hat, struggle es nötig, bei der Entwicklung der Grundlagen manchmal etwas weiter auszuholen.

Electron Microscopy in Heterogeneous Catalysis by P.L Gai, E.D Boyes

By P.L Gai, E.D Boyes

Catalysis is without doubt one of the most vital applied sciences within the business global, controlling greater than ninety% of business chemical strategies and crucial for large-scale construction of plastics and gasoline. Exploring the commonest form of catalysis utilized in undefined, Electron Microscopy in Heterogeneous Catalysis presents a coherent account of heterogeneous catalytic procedures and catalyst floor constitution on the atomic scale as elucidated through electron microscopy techniques.

The ebook addresses a few matters which are primary to the certainty of heterogeneous catalysis via oxides and supported metals. The homes of a catalyst are ruled by means of its microstructure and chemistry on an atomic scale, and electron microscopy tools are necessary to at once research those houses. The e-book presents very important information regarding energetic species, metastable-transient species, mechanisms of particle catalysis sintering, promoter-poisoning results on an atomic scale, and catalyst help interactions on a microscale.

Transmission Electron Microscopy: Physics of Image Formation by Ludwig Reimer

By Ludwig Reimer

Transmission Electron Microscopy: Physics of photo Formation provides the idea of photograph and distinction formation, and the analytical modes in transmission electron microscopy. the foundations of particle and wave optics of electrons are defined. Electron-specimen interactions are mentioned for comparing the speculation of scattering and section distinction. additionally mentioned are the kinematical and dynamical theories of electron diffraction and their purposes for crystal-structure research and imaging of lattices and their defects. X-ray microanalysis and electron energy-loss spectroscopy are taken care of as analytical tools. Specimen harm and illness through electron irradiation limits the solution for organic and a few inorganic specimens. This 5th variation comprises dialogue of modern development, particularly within the zone of aberration correction and effort filtering; in addition, the themes brought within the fourth version were updated.

Transmission Electron Microscopy: Physics of snapshot Formation is written for scientists and alertness engineers in fields akin to physics, chemistry, mineralogy, fabrics technological know-how and biology. Researchers, scholars, and different clients of a transmission electron microscope may also make the most of this text.

Passive Components for Dense Optical Integration by Christina Manolatou

By Christina Manolatou

Passive elements for Dense Optical Integration offers a theoretical and numerical research of excessive index-contrast (HIC) passive elements which may function development blocks on the end-points and nodes of WDM communications platforms. the most attribute of those constructions is their miniature measurement and their low radiation loss as a result of robust gentle confinement in excessive index-contrast structures. hence huge scale, excessive density optical integration will be attainable with the linked benefits of elevated performance, compactness and price.
Passive parts for Dense Optical Integration provides novel units for filtering, optical interconnections and coupling to fibers. The latter a part of the ebook explores coupling buildings which are just a couple of wavelengths lengthy but supplies effective coupling. additionally mentioned are attainable destiny instructions for this expertise.
Passive parts for Dense Optical Integration might be of curiosity to researchers and improvement engineers in built-in optics and fiber optics. It additionally offers an outstanding complement to a graduate direction in optics.

Barefoot Running: How to Run Light and Free by Getting in by Michael Sandler

By Michael Sandler

"Enjoy the insights this booklet has to provide -- it's approximately shape, pleasure and the affection of operating. Run Free!" - Micah precise, AKA Caballo Blanco.

As visible nationally on television, radio and in print, Barefoot working is the unique, so much entire advisor to barefoot operating, written via best-selling writer and operating trainer Michael Sandler, who has coached and encouraged millions of runners, walkers, and hikers nationwide.

After a near-death coincidence left him with a titanium femur and hip besides 10 knee operations, no ACL, and an inch leg-length discrepancy, former specialist athlete and Olympic hopeful Michael Sandler used to be instructed he may by no means run back.
