High intensity laser propagation in the atmosphere( Book )

2 editions published between 1966 and 1967 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Atmospheric heating by laser pulses in transmission windows has been investigated. Arguments are given for reducing previously given estimates for the absorption in the neighborhood of 10,468 A by nearly one order of magnitude. A study has been initiated of an additional heating mechanism not previously considered, namely collision-induced conversion of laser energy into energy of translational molecular motion. A discussion is given of a classical model and of extensions to a quantum mechanical description. (Author)

The study of a method to reduce electron density in the ionospheric d-region by means of high-powered ground-based transmitters( Book )

1 edition published in 1962 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Variational principles for the wave function in scattering theory( Book )

1 edition published in 1957 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Variational principles are designed for the solution of the Schroedinger equation when a point source is placed in the presence of an inhomogeneous, absorbing medium represented by an arbitrary complex potential function. When the point source is allowed to recede to infinity, these stationary structures reduce to variational principles for the wave function in the standard scatter problem, namely the outgoing solution to the Schroedinger equation for an incident plane wave. Finally in the asymptotic region, the well-known bi-functional variational principles for the transition amplitudes arise automatically from the stationary forms for the wave function describing the standard scatter problem. A few examples leading to variationally improved wave functions are discussed. (Author)
