TitleFrom Classical to Quantum Plasmonics in Three and Two Dimensions
Author(s)Christensen, Thomas
PublicationCham, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer International Publishing, 2017.
DescriptionXX, 181 p. 39 illus., 14 illus. in color : online resource
Abstract NoteThis thesis provides a comprehensive introduction to two active research directions within the field of plasmonics: (i) nonclassical, or quantum, aspects of the plasmonic response; and (ii) two-dimensional plasmonics, a recent innovation in the field stimulated by the advent of two-dimensional materials. It discusses the fundamentals of this field in detail, and explores several current research directions.?? Nonclassical plasmonics has been spurred on in recent years by the tremendous technological progress in nanofabrication and optical characterization; today, it is possible to investigate the plasmonic features of nanostructures with characteristic features in the few nanometer range. The book describes and analyzes the breakdown of the classical theory under these conditions and explores several alternatives and extensions. ?? The unique electronic and dimensional features of novel two-dimensional materials, such as graphene, lie at the core of plasmonics' most rapidly developing subfield; two-dimensional plasmonics. This thesis provides a clear and comprehensive exposition of the central features for interested researchers looking for an entry point to this riveting area. ??

TitlePassively Mode-Locked Semiconductor Lasers : Dynamics and Stochastic Properties in the Presence of Optical Feedback
Author(s)Jaurigue, Lina
PublicationCham, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer International Publishing, 2017.
DescriptionXV, 196 p. 133 illus., 53 illus. in color : online resource
Abstract NoteThis thesis investigates the dynamics of passively mode-locked semiconductor lasers, with a focus on the influence of optical feedback on the noise characteristics. The results presented here are important for improving the performance of passively mode-locked semiconductor lasers and, at the same time, are relevant for understanding delay-systems in general. The semi-analytic results developed are applicable to a broad range of oscillatory systems with time-delayed feedback, making the thesis of relevance to various scientific communities. Passively mode-locked lasers can produce pulse trains and have applications in the contexts of optical clocking, microscopy and optical data communication, among others. Using a system of delay differential equations to model these devices, a combination of numerical and semi-analytic methods is developed and used to characterize this system.

TitleOscilloscopes: A Manual for Students, Engineers, and Scientists
Author(s)Herres, David
PublicationCham, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer International Publishing, 2020.
DescriptionX, 267 p. 192 illus., 168 illus. in color : online resource
Abstract NoteThis text presents readers with an engaging while rigorous manual on the use of oscilloscopes in laboratory and field settings. It describes procedures for measuring and displaying waveforms, gives examples of how this information can be used for repairing malfunctioning equipment and developing new designs, and explains steps for debugging pre-production prototypes. The book begins by examining how the oscilloscope displays electrical energy as traces on X and Y co-ordinates, freely transitioning without loss of information between time and frequency domains, in accordance with the Fourier Transform and its modern correlate, the Fast Fourier Transform. The book continues with practical applications and case studies, describes how oscilloscopes are used in diagnosing pulse width modulation (PWM) problems--looking at serial data streaming and analyzing power supply noise and premises power quality issues???and emphasizes the great functionality of mixed-signal as opposed to mixed-domain oscilloscope, and earlier instruments. Featuring many descriptions of applications in applied science and physics, Oscilloscopes: A Manual for Students, Engineers, and Scientists is ideal for students, faculty, and practitioners

TitleFake Physics: Spoofs, Hoaxes and Fictitious Science
Author(s)May, Andrew
PublicationCham, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer International Publishing, 2019.
DescriptionX, 170 p. 33 illus., 21 illus. in color : online resource
Abstract NotePeople are used to seeing ???fake physics??? in science fiction ??? concepts like faster-than-light travel, antigravity and time travel to name a few. The fiction label ought to be a giveaway, but some SF writers ??? especially those with a background in professional science ??? are so adept at ???technobabble??? that it can be difficult to work out what is fake and what is real. To confuse matters further, Isaac Asimov???s 1948 piece about the fictitious time-travelling substance thiotimoline was written, not as a short story, but in the form of a spoof research paper. The boundaries between fact and fiction can also be blurred by physicists themselves - sometimes unintentionally, sometimes with tongue-in-cheek, sometimes to satirize perceived weaknesses in research practices. Examples range from hoaxes aimed at exposing poor editorial standards in academic publications, through ???thought experiments??? that sound like the plot of a sci-fi movie to April Fools??? jokes. Even the latter may carry a serious message, whether about the sociology of science or poking fun at legitimate but far-out scientific hypotheses. This entertaining book is a joyous romp exploring the whole spectrum of fake physics ??? from science to fiction and back again

TitleCoherence and Quantum Optics VIII : Proceedings of the Eighth Rochester Conference on Coherence and Quantum Optics, held at the University of Rochester, June 13???16, 2001
Author(s)Bigelow, N.P;Eberly, J.H;Stroud Jr., C.R;Walmsley, I.A
PublicationNew York, NY, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer US, 2003.
DescriptionXXI, 710 p : online resource
Abstract NoteThe Eighth Rochester Conference on Coherence and Quantum Optics was held on the campus of the University of Rochester during the period June 13-16,2001. This volume contains the proceedings of the meeting. The meeting was preceded by an affiliated conference, the International Conference on Quantum Information, with some overlapping sessions on June 13. The proceedings of the affiliated conference will be published separately by the Optical Society of America. A few papers that were presented in common plenary sessions of the two conferences will be published in both proceedings volumes. More than 268 scientists from 28 countries participated in the week long discussions and presentations. This Conference differed from the previous seven in the CQO series in several ways, the most important of which was the absence of Leonard Mandel. Professor Mandel died a few months before the conference. A special memorial symposium in his honor was held at the end of the conference. The presentations from that symposium are included in this proceedings volume. An innovation, that we believe made an important contribution to the conference, was the inclusion of a series of invited lectures chaired by CQO founder Emil Wolf, reviewing the history of the fields of coherence and quantum optics before about 1970. These were given by three prominent participants in the development of the field, C. Cohen-Tannoudji, 1. F. Clauser, and R. I. Glauber

TitleWaves and Imaging through Complex Media
Author(s)Sebbah, P
PublicationDordrecht, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer Netherlands, 2001.
DescriptionX, 460 p : online resource
Abstract NoteRecent advances in wave propagation in random media are certainly consequences of new approaches to fundamental issues, as well as of a strong interest in potential applications. A collective effort has been made to present in this book the state of the art in fundamental concepts, as well as in biomedical imaging techniques. As an example, the recent introduction of wave chaos, and more specifically random matrix theory - an old tool from nuclear physics - to the study of multiple scattering, has pointed the way to a deeper understanding of wave coherence in complex media. At the same time, efficient new approaches for retrieving information from random media promise to allow wave imaging of small tumors in opaque tissues. Review chapters are written by experts in the field, with the aim of making the book accessible to the widest possible scientific audience: graduate students and research scientists in theoretical and applied physics, optics, acoustics, and biomedical physics
