The collected papers of Frits Zernike (1888-1966) by Frits Zernike( Book )

18 editions published between 2012 and 2016 in English and German and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Collected Papers of Frits Zernike (1888-1966) are planned to reproduce in two stages the scientific work of Groningen's distinguished 1953 Nobel laureate for Physics. The first stage comprises the original texts, mostly in French, German, and Dutch, published in two volumes, I and II. The second stage concerns an exclusively English rendition of those papers, also in two volumes (III and IV), and, besides, a fifth volume with an apparatus criticus consisting of an introduction and clarifying notes to each individual article, bibliographies of primary and secondary sources, and indexes (subjects, names). The first volume reproduces Zernike's papers from the period 1911-1932, that is, from his prize-winning essay on the mathematical foundation of the clock and hammer game up to and including an analysis of the Brownian limit of a series of observations. The frontispice is decorated with a photograph of a painting (oil on canvas; 60x50 cm), newly made for the purpose by Eric Bos (Groningen; www.visualia.nl). There are i.a. some 13 papers co-authored with Leonard Ornstein (1880-1941), Zernike's life-long friend whom he succeeded in 1915 as associate professor of theoretical physics at the University of Groningen. There are, moreover, his doctoral dissertation (1915) on critical opalescence and its theoretical and experimental implications, and an in-depth study of probability theory and mathematical statistics, composed for the mathematical part of the Handbuch für Physik (1928). The second volume reproduces Zernike's papers from the period 1933-1958. It opens with the abstract of a paper in which he announced the discovery of the phase contrast method, in 1933, at the annual Congress of the Dutch Natural and Medical Scientists, which was followed by an almost exhaustive paper in the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society (1934). There are also his papers on the diffraction theory of aberrations, featuring the famous circle polynomials (1934-). This volume closes with Zernike's farewell speech on becoming emeritus, on 16 July 1958

Development of an Optical Disc Recorder( Book )

5 editions published between 1976 and 1978 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A laboratory-prototype, digital, optical disc recorder was developed with a storage capacity of 10 to the 10th power bits. Recording is done by laser machining of micron-sized pits in a thin tellurium film allowing direct-read-after-write (DRAW) of the information. The recording format maps each bit of information to a recorded pit. The tellurium is deposited on a clear plastic disc configured to be self-protecting and easily handled. The major accomplishment was demonstrating the feasibility of an inexpensive recorder and disc suitable for operation in a normal office environment. The key developments were a sensitive recording material, a plastic disc, and a self-protected disc configuration called the 'air sandwich'. Various materials were considered for the disc substrate and its protection; selection was based primarily on macro and microscopic flatness, thickness uniformity, strength, optical properties, adherence of DRAW film, and cost
