Lasers, spectroscopy, and new ideas : a tribute to Arthur L. Schawlow by W. M Yen( Book )

11 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 308 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume originated in a happy event honoring Arthur Schawlow on his 65th birthday. As a research physicist, Schawlow has been a major infiuence on the present nature of physics and of high technology. He has also had a role, through the American Physical Society and other organizations, in shaping policy for the world of physicists. Important as these professional activities have been, the contributions to this volume were not prepared just for these reasons, but more for Art Schawlow the friend, colleague, and teacher. I am one who has had the privilege of knowing and collaborating with Art, probably over a longer period of time than others participating in this volume, and in a number of different enterprises; his friendship and stimulating scientific abilities are a very significant part of my own life. It is hence a pleasure to take part in this volume celebrating his contributions to science and to scientists. Schawlow's career has been geographically centered at the University of Toronto, Columbia University, the Bell Telephone Laboratories, and Stan ford University. But, as is illustrated by the papers of this volume, its effects and his personal infiuence have diffused widely. In his own work, Art Schawlow is noted for thoughtful imagination, keen physical intuition, and what might be thought an interest in gadgets - not just any gadgets, but beautiful and innovative mechanisms or new techniques in which he charac teristically recognizes important potentials

Scanning electron microscopy : physics of image formation and microanalysis by Ludwig Reimer( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The aim of this book is to outline the physics of image formation, electron­ specimen interactions, imaging modes, the interpretation of micrographs and the use of quantitative modes "in scanning electron microscopy (SEM). lt forms a counterpart to Transmission Electron Microscopy (Vol. 36 of this Springer Series in Optical Sciences) . The book evolved from lectures delivered at the University of Münster and from a German text entitled Raster-Elektronenmikroskopie (Springer-Verlag), published in collaboration with my colleague Gerhard Pfefferkorn. In the introductory chapter, the principles of the SEM and of electron­ specimen interactions are described, the most important imaging modes and their associated contrast are summarized, and general aspects of eiemental analysis by x-ray and Auger electron emission are discussed. The electron gun and electron optics are discussed in Chap. 2 in order to show how an electron probe of small diameter can be formed, how the elec­ tron beam can be blanked at high frequencies for time-resolving exper­ iments and what problems have tobe taken into account when focusing
Handbook of nonlinear optical crystals by G. G Gurzadi︠a︡n( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Intended as a reference source, this text provides a complete description of the properties and applications of all non-linear crystals reported to be in the literature up to the beginning of 1990. It also includes important equations for calculating parameters of non-linear frequency converters

Advanced Laser Source Research( Book )

2 editions published between 1987 and 1994 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nonlinear Spectroscopy: The approach has been to study molecular systems which exhibit unusual spectroscopic behavior, in the hope that they may lead to novel techniques for upconverting laser frequencies. Also studied are novel methods of laser spectroscopy and wavelength stabilization. Tunable Laser and Coherent Light Techniques for High Resolution Ultraviolet Spectroscopy-10 papers produced. The overall theme of this contract has been on studies of the physics and technology of extreme ultraviolet (XUV) and soft x-ray lasers and devices. Much of the work has centered on methods for the production of core-excited metastable atoms and ions; and on the use of these atoms and ions both for new types of spectroscopy and for new types of XUV Lasers. An extensive study is made of the scattering of N2 off the flat, close-packed Ag(111) surface. Not only is the rotational population of the scattered N2, but also the alignment as described by the quadrople and hexadecapole moments of the J distribution, denoted by A(2) and sub 0 and A(4) sub 0 respectively
