Capillarity and wetting phenomena : drops, bubbles, pearls, waves by Pierre-Gilles de Gennes ( Book )
3 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The study of capillarity is in the midst of a veritable explosion. What is offered here is not a comprehensive review of the latest research but rather a compendium of principles designed for the undergraduate student and for readers interested in the physics underlying these phenomena. -- Product Description
The atom in the history of human thought by Bernard Pullman ( Book )
2 editions published between 1998 and 2001 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The Idea of the Atom - The Ultimate essence of physical reality, indivisible and eternal - has been the focus of a quest that has engaged humanity for 2,500 years. That quest is captured in The Atom in the History of Human Thought."--BOOK JACKET
Sands, powders, and grains : an introduction to the physics of granular materials by Jacques Duran ( Book )
1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This is an introduction to the physical principles underlying the behavior of materials consisting of grains. These can be found in an enormous variety of places, ranging from the powders used to make vitamin pills to the rings of Saturn, from beaches to grain elevators, and from pottery clay to interstellar dust. Granular materials have interested physicists from Coulomb to Faraday to Reynolds and Rayleigh, but only recently have mathematical and experimental methods been developed to analyze their properties in detail. This introductory text develops the fundamental physics of the behavior of granular materials. It covers the basic properties of flow, friction, and fluidization of uniform granular materials; discusses mixing and segregation of heterogeneous materials (the famous "brazil-nut problem"); and concludes with an introduction to numerical models. The presentation begins with simple experiments and uses their results to build concepts and theorems about materials whose behavior is often quite counter-intuitive; presenting in a unified way the background needed to understand current work in the field. Developed for students at the University of Paris, the text will be suitable for advanced undergraduates and beginning graduates; while also being of interest to researchers and engineers just entering the field
Fragile objects : soft matter, hard science, and the thrill of discovery by Pierre-Gilles de Gennes ( Book )
2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
After he received the Nobel Prize in physics in 1991, students, schools, and science clubs throughout the French-speaking world invited Pierre-Gilles de Gennes to lecture about his work in science, about the work of a scientist, and about the role of science in the modern world. This absorbing and beautifully written book emerged from those lectures and from the lively discussions, probing questions, and spontaneous replies that followed
Magneto-Optic Effects at 1.15 micrometer In Gd(.5)Y(2.5)Ga(1) Iron Garnet Thin Film Waveguide ( Book )
2 editions published between 1973 and 1974 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The authors have built an experimental setup which enables them to view the magnetic domains in the film and measure the conversion efficiency simultaneously. Reasonable mode conversion efficiency is obtained, only when the stripe magnetic domains in the film are eliminated along the line of light propagation. The bias field (H(a)) required to annihilate the stripe domain is dependent on the direction of the bias field with respect to the axes of magnetic anisotropy. The annihilation field (H(a)) is found to be maxima, of the order of 50 Oe, at O, plus or minus 60, plus or minus 120 degrees from the easy axis, and minima of the order of 2 Oe at plus or minus 45 degrees from the hard axis.

Efficient Mode Conversion in Gd(.5)Y(2.5)Ga, Iron Garnet Thin Film Waveguides ( Book )
1 edition published in 1973 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The implementation of periodic reversals of magnetization along the direction of propagation of light, at locations where TE and TM modes become 180 degrees out of phase, is discussed. Two approaches were followed: (1) the conventional electrical serpentine circuit and (2) a novel periodic permalloy structure. Using these techniques, we have observed conversion efficiencies of 92% and 80%, respectively, in two Gd5 Ga1 iron garnet thin film waveguides grown on GGG substrates. Experimental results are examined in the light of the theory of electromagnetic wave propagation through bulk crystals possessing both Faraday rotation and birefringence, adapted to the case of mode conversion in magneto-optic waveguides.
