TitleBalances : instruments, manufacturers, history
Author(s)Erich Robens;Shanath Amarasiri A. Jayaweera;Susanne Kiefer
Description1 online resource (xx, 730 pages) : illustrations (some color)
Abstract NoteThe book deals mainly with direct mass determination by means of a conventional balances. It covers the history of the balance from the beginnings in Egypt earlier than 3000 BC to recent developments. All balance types are described with emphasis on scientific balances. Methods of indirect mass determination, which are applied to very light objects like molecules and the basic particles of matter and celestial bodies, are included. As additional guidance, today's manufacturers are listed and the profile of important companies is reviewed. Several hundred photographs, reproductions and drawings show instruments and their uses. This book includes commercial weighing instruments for merchandise and raw materials in workshops as well as symbolic weighing in the ancient Egyptian's ceremony of "Weighing of the Heart", the Greek fate balance, the Roman Justitia, Juno Moneta and Middle Ages scenes of the Last Judgement with Jesus or St. Michael and of modern balances

TitleAttosecond physics : attosecond measurements and control of physical systems
Author(s)Luis Plaja (ed.);Ricardo Torres (ed.);Amelle Za�ir (ed.)
Description1 online resource (xvi, 275 pages) : illustrations
Abstract NoteAttophysics is an emerging field in physics devoted to the study and characterization of matter dynamics in the sub-femtosecond time scale. This book gives coverage of a broad set of selected topics in this field, exciting by their novelty and their potential impact. The book is written review-like. It also includes fundamental chapters as introduction to the field for non-specialist physicists. The book is structured in four sections: basics, attosecond pulse technology, applications to measurements and control of physical processes and future perspectives. It is a valuable reference tool for researchers in the field as well as a concise introduction to non-specialist readers

TitleMass metrology
Author(s)S. V. Gupta
PublicationBerlin, Springer, 2012.
Description1 online resource (xviii, 353 p.) : ill
Abstract NoteThis book presents the practical aspects of mass measurements. Concepts of gravitational, inertial and conventional mass and details of the variation of acceleration of gravity are described. The Metric Convention and International Prototype Kilogram and BIPM standards are described. The effect of change of gravity on the indication of electronic balances is derived with respect of latitude, altitude and earth topography. The classification of weights by OIML is discussed. Maximum permissible errors in different categories of weights prescribed by national and international organizations are presented. Starting with the necessity of redefining the unit kilogram in terms of physical constants, various methods of defining the kilogram in terms of physical constants are described. The kilogram can be defined by Avogadro{u2019}s constant, ion collection of some heavy elements, levitation, voltage and Watt Balance. The detection of very small mass of the order of zeptogram through Nanotechnolgy is also discussed. Latest recommendations of CIPM are given
Contents NoteSome Important Definitions -- Introduction -- Other Probability Functions -- Evaluation of Measurement Data -- Propagation of Errors/Uncertainty -- Uncertainty and Calibration of Instruments -- Calculation of Uncertainty -- Uncertainty in Calibration of a Surface Plat -- Uncertainty in Calibration -- Uncertainty in Volumetric Measurement -- Uncertainty in Calibration of Electrical Instruments

TitleLaser-induced breakdown spectroscopy : fundamentals and applications
Author(s)Reinhard Noll
PublicationHeidelberg, Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg, 2012.
Description1 online resource (xii, 543 p.) : ill. (some col.)
Abstract NoteThis book is a comprehensive source of the fundamentals, process parameters, instrumental components and applications of laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS). The effect of multiple pulses on material ablation, plasma dynamics and plasma emission is presented. A heuristic plasma modeling allows to simulate complex experimental plasma spectra. These methods and findings form the basis for a variety of applications to perform quantitative multi-element analysis with LIBS. These application potentials of LIBS have really boosted in the last years ranging from bulk analysis of metallic alloys and non-conducting materials, via spatially resolved analysis and depth profiling covering measuring objects in all physical states: gaseous, liquid and solid. Dedicated chapters present LIBS investigations for these tasks with special emphasis on the methodical and instrumental concepts as well as the optimization strategies for a quantitative analysis. Requirements, concepts, design and characteristic features of LIBS instruments are described covering laboratory systems, inspections systems for in-line process control, mobile systems and remote systems. State-of-the-art industrial applications of LIBS systems are presented demonstrating the benefits of inline process control for improved process guiding and quality assurance purposes
Contents NoteIntroduction -- Laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy -- Process parameters -- Instrumental components -- Evaporation and plasma generation -- Multiple-pulses for LIBS -- Material ablation -- Plasma dynamics and plasma parameters -- Plasma emission -- Modeling of plasma emission -- Quantitative analysis -- Combination of LIBS and LIF -- Bulk analysis of metallic alloys -- Bulk analysis of non-conducting materials -- Spatially resolved analysis -- Depth profiling -- LIBS instruments -- Industrial applications

TitleAtomistic properties of solids
Author(s)D.B. Sirdeshmukh;L. Sirdeshmukh;K.G. Subhadra
PublicationBerlin, Springer, 2011.
Description1 online resource (xviii, 617 p.) : ill
Abstract NoteThe book deals with atomistic properties of solids which are determined by the crystal structure, interatomic forces and atomic displacements influenced by the effects of temperature, stress and electric fields. The book gives equal importance to experimental details and theory. There are full chapters dedicated to the tensor nature of physical properties, mechanical properties, lattice vibrations, crystal structure determination and ferroelectricity. The other crystalline states like nano-, poly-, liquid- and quasi crystals are discussed. Several new topics like nonlinear optics and the Rietveld method are presented in the book. The book lays emphasis on the role of symmetry in crystal properties. Comprehensiveness is the strength of the book; this allows users at different levels a choice of chapters according to their requirements
