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

TitleHistorical evolution toward achieving ultrahigh vacuum in JEOL electron microscopes
Author(s)Nagamitsu Yoshimura
Description1 online resource (xi, 125 pages) : illustrations
Abstract NoteThis book describes the developmental history of the vacuum system of the transmission electron microscope (TEM) at the Japan Electron Optics Laboratory (JEOL) from its inception to its use in today s high-technology microscopes. The author and his colleagues were engaged in developing vacuum technology for electron microscopes (JEM series) at JEOL for many years. This volume presents a summary and explanation of their work and the technology that makes possible a clean ultrahigh vacuum. The typical users of the TEM are top-level researchers working at the frontiers of new materials or with new biological specimens. They often use the TEM under extremely severe conditions, with problems sometimes occurring in the vacuum system of the microscopes. JEOL engineers then must work as quickly as possible to improve the vacuum evacuation system so as to prevent the recurrence of such problems. Among the wealth of explanatory material in this book are examples of users reports of problems in the vacuum system of the JEM, such as the occurrence of a micro-discharge and the back-streaming of the diffusion pump (DP) oil vapor. This work is a valuable resource for researchers who use the transmission electron microscope and for engineers and scientists interested in its technology
Contents NoteIntroduction of the electron microscope -- History of JEOL electron microscopes -- Accidents and information, instructing us to improve the vacuum systems of JEMs -- Development of the evacuation systems for JEMs -- Development of JEOL SIPs -- Ultrahigh vacuum electron microscopes

TitleStandard model measurements with the ATLAS detector : Monte Carlo simulations of the tile calorimeter and measurement of the Z --> [theta, theta] cross section
Author(s)Jana Novakova
Description1 online resource (XV, 91 pages) : illustrations (some color)
Abstract NoteThis thesis deals with two main procedures performed with the ATLAS detector at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). The noise description in the hadronic calorimeter TileCal represents a very valuable technical job. The second part presents a fruitful physics analysis-- the cross section measurement of the process p + p --> Z0 --> T + T. The Monte Carlo simulations of the TileCal are described in the first part of the thesis, including a detailed treatment of the electronic noise and multiple interactions (so-called pile-up). An accurate description of both is crucial for the reconstruction of e.g. jets or hadronic tau-jets. The second part reports a Standard Model measurement of the Z0 --> T + T process with the emphasis on the final state with an electron and a hadronically decaying tau-lepton. The Z0 --> T+T channel forms the dominant background in the search for Higgs bosons decaying into tau lepton pairs, and thus the good understanding achieved here can facilitate more sensitive Higgs detection
Contents NoteOverview of the ATLAS experiment at the LHC -- Monte Carlo simulations of the Tile calorimeter -- Electron efficiency measurement -- Z0 + cross section measurement

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
