4D electron microscopy imaging in space and time by Ahmed H Zewail( )
20 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 1,242 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The modern electron microscope, as a result of recent revolutionary developments and many evolutionary ones, now yields a wealth of quantitative knowledge pertaining to structure, dynamics, and function barely matched by any other single scientific instrument. It is also poised to contribute much new spatially-resolved and time-resolved insights of central importance in the exploration of most aspects of condensed matter, ranging from the physical to the biological sciences. Whereas in all conventional EM methods, imaging, diffraction, and chemical analyses have been conducted in a static - time-integrated - manner, now it has become possible to unite the time domain with the spatial one, thereby creating four-dimensional (4D) electron microscopy. This advance is based on the fundamental concept of timed, coherent single-electron packets, or electron pulses, which are liberated with femtosecond durations. Structural phase transitions, mechanical deformations, and the embryonic stages of melting and crystallization are examples of phenomena that can now be imaged in unprecedented structural detail with high spatial resolution, and ten orders of magnitude as fast as hitherto. No monograph in existence attempts to cover the revolutionary dimensions that EM in its various modes of operation nowadays makes possible. The authors of this book chart these developments, and also compare the merits of coherent electron waves with those of synchrotron radiation. They judge it prudent to recall some important basic procedural and theoretical aspects of imaging and diffraction so that the reader may better comprehend the significance of the new vistas and applications now afoot. This book is not a vade mecum - numerous other texts are available for the practitioner for that purpose. It is instead an in-depth exposé of the paradigm concepts and the developed techniques that can now be executed to gain new knowledge in the entire domain of biological and physical science, and in the four dimensions of space and time

The Chemical bond : structure and dynamics by Ahmed H Zewail( Book )
13 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 773 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This inspired book by some of the most influential scientists of our time--including six Nobel laureates--chronicles our emerging understanding of the chemical bond through the last nine decades and into the future. From Pauling's early structural work using x-ray and electron diffraction to Zewail's femtosecond lasers that probe molecular dynamics in real time; from Crick's molecular biology to Rich's molecular recognition, this book explores a rich tradition of scientific heritage and accomplishment. The perspectives given by Pauling, Perutz, Rich, Crick, Porter, Polanyi, Herschbach, Zewail

Femtochemistry : with the Nobel lecture of A. Zewail ( Book )
7 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 242 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The contributions collected here from expert femtochemists provide an insight into this area of interdisciplinary research. The range extends from femtochemistry in nanohollows to the investigation of the dynamics of biological reactions in the femtosecond range, from ab initio approaches to quantum chemical reaction controls to two-dimensional, nonlinear optical spectroscopy in liquids. This overview of the current level of research is rounded off with A. Zewail's Nobel prize-winning lecture

Voyage through time walks of life to the Nobel Prize by Ahmed H Zewail( Book )
19 editions published between 2002 and 2006 in 3 languages and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"From a beginning in an Egyptian Delta town and the port of Alexandria to the scenic vistas of sunny southern California, Ahmed Zewail takes us on a voyage through time - his own life and the split-second world of the femtosecond. In this engaging expose of his life and work until his receipt of the Nobel Prize in 1999, Zewail explores in non-technical language the landscape of molecules glimpsed on the scale of one quadrillionth of a second: the femtosecond, 0.000 000 000 000 001 second."--BOOK JACKET

Femtochemistry and femtobiology ultrafast dynamics in molecular science : University of Castilla-La Mancha, Toledo, Spain, September 2-6, 2001 by Femtochemistry and femtobiology : Ultrafast dynamics in molecular science( )
1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A collection of papers from a conference held in Toledo, Spain, in September 2001. The contributions are from international scientists and they examine the state-of-the-art of femtochemistry and femtobiology at the beginning of the new millennium. There are reviews and papers on ultrafast dynamics in molecular science. The coverage of topics highlights several important features of molecular science from the viewpoint of structure (space domain) and dynamics (time domain). First of all, the text presents developments, such as experimental techniques for understanding ultrafast processes in gas, condensed and complex systems, including biological molecules, surfaces and nanostructures. At the same time it stresses the different ways to control the rates and pathways of reactive events in chemistry and biology. Particular emphasis is given to biological processes as an area where femtodynamics is becoming very useful for resolving the structural dynamics from techniques such as electron diffraction, and X-ray and IR spectroscopy. Finally, developments in quantum control (in both theory and experiment) and the experimental pulse-shaping techniques are described
