Abstract Note  Holger Bartolf discusses stateoftheart detection concepts based on superconducting nanotechnology as well as sophisticated analytical formul?? that model dissipative fluctuationphenomena in superconducting nanowire singlephoton detectors. Such knowledge is desirable for the development of advanced devices which are designed to possess an intrinsic robustness against vortexfluctuations and it provides the perspective for honorable fundamental science in condensed matter physics. Especially the nanowire detector allows for ultralow noise detection of signals with singlephoton sensitivity and GHz repetition rates. Such devices have a huge potential for future technological impact and might enable unique applications (e.g. high rate interplanetary deepspace data links from Mars to Earth).

Title  Towards Offline PET Monitoring at a CyclotronBased Proton Therapy Facility : Experiments and Monte Carlo Simulations 
Author(s)  W??rl, Matthias 
Publication  Wiesbaden, 1. Imprint: Springer Spektrum
2. Springer Fachmedien Wiesbaden, 2016. 
Description  XV, 86 p. 30 illus., 10 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  Matthias W??rl presents two essential steps to implement offline PET monitoring of proton dose delivery at a clinical facility, namely the setting up of an accurate Monte Carlo model of the clinical beamline and the experimental validation of positron emitter production crosssections. In the first part, the field size dependence of the dose output is described for scanned proton beams. Both the Monte Carlo and an analytical computational beam model were able to accurately predict target dose, while the latter tends to overestimate dose in normal tissue. In the second part, the author presents PET measurements of different phantom materials, which were activated by the proton beam. The results indicate that for an irradiation with a high number of protons for the sake of good statistics, dead time losses of the PET scanner may become important and lead to an underestimation of positronemitter production yields. Contents Monte Carlo Modeling of a Clinical Proton Beam LowDose Envelope and Field Size Factor PET Activation Studies Target Groups Researchers and students in the field of medical physics with focus on particle therapy Medical physicists at proton therapy facilities The Author Matthias W??rl wrote his Master???s Thesis at the chair of Medical Physics at the LudwigMaximilians University Munich. He is now a PhD student at the same department, working on transmission imaging with laseraccelerated ions

Title  Toroidal Multipole Moments in Classical Electrodynamics : An Analysis of their Emergence and Physical Significance 
Author(s)  Nanz, Stefan 
Publication  Wiesbaden, 1. Imprint: Springer Spektrum
2. Springer Fachmedien Wiesbaden, 2016. 
Description  XI, 87 p. 4 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  Stefan Nanz investigates the necessity for three multipole families in classical electrodynamics. He shows that by imposing symmetry and parity constraints, it is sufficient to deal with only two multipole families. This implies that the toroidal multipole moments do not represent an independent multipole family, and they only emerge in the longwavelength limit. Contents Symmetry Considerations of ChargeCurrent Distributions Multipole Expansion of the Electromagnetic Potentials and Fields Conclusions for the Physical Significance of Toroidal Multipole Moments Target Groups Researchers and students in the field of physics Practitioners in the field of optics and photonics The Author Stefan Nanz studied physics at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology and wrote his Master Thesis in the group of Prof. Dr. Carsten Rockstuhl. There, he is now a PhD student and working on tailored disorder of scattering interfaces and photon management in solar cells

Title  AllOptical Noninvasive Delayed Feedback Control of Semiconductor Lasers 
Author(s)  Schikora, Sylvia 
Publication  Wiesbaden, 1. Imprint: Springer Spektrum
2. Springer Fachmedien Wiesbaden, 2013. 
Description  XIX, 118 p. 59 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  The stabilization of unstable states hidden in the dynamics of a system, in particular the control of chaos, has received much attention in the last years. Sylvia Schikora for the first time applies a wellknown control method called delayed feedback control entirely in the alloptical domain. A multisection semiconductor laser receives optical feedback from an external FabryPerot interferometer. The control signal is a phasetunable superposition of the laser signal and provokes the laser to operate in an otherwise unstable periodic state with a period equal to the time delay. The control is noninvasive, because the reflected signal tends to zero when the target state is reached. ?? The work has been awarded the CarlRamsauerPrize 2012. ?? Contents ?????????????????? AllOptical Control Setup ?????????????????? Stable States with Resonant FabryPerot Feedback ?????????????????? Control of an Unstable Stationary State and of Unstable Selfpulsations ?????????????????? Controlling Chaos ?????????????????? Control of a Torsionfree Orbit ?? Target Groups ?? ?????????????????? Researchers and students of nonlinear dynamics or semiconductor laser technology, interested in the application of control synchronization in the GHz range ??????????????????

The author Dr. Sylvia Schikora completed her doctoral thesis on ultrafast noninvasive control of semiconductor lasers at the Department of Physics, Humboldt University of Berlin. She currently works at Humboldt University as a postdoctoral researcher with a focus on optical metrology

Publication  Wiesbaden, 1. Imprint: Springer Spektrum
2. Springer Fachmedien Wiesbaden, 2013. 
Description  XVI, 333 p. 93 illus., 27 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  Within the past few decades magnetic resonance imaging has become one of the most important imaging modalities in medicine. For a reliable diagnosis of pathologies further technological improvements are of primary importance. This text deals with a radically new approach of image encoding: The fundamental principle of gradient linearity is challenged by investigating the possibilities of acquiring anatomical images with the help of nonlinear gradient fields. Besides a thorough theoretical analysis with a focus on signal encoding and image reconstruction, initial hardware implementations are tested using phantom as well as invivo measurements. Several applications are presented that give an impression about the implications that this technological advancement may have for future medical diagnostics. ?? Contents n?? Image Reconstruction in MRI n?? Nonlinear Gradient Encoding: PatLoc Imaging n?? Presentation of Initial Hardware Designs n?? Basics of Signal Encoding and Image Reconstruction in PatLoc Imaging n?? Direct and Iterative Reconstruction Techniques ?? ?? Target Groups ??????????????????

Publication  Wiesbaden, 1. Imprint: Springer Spektrum
2. Springer Fachmedien Wiesbaden, 2015. 
Description  XII, 121 p. 20 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  Marco Schr??ter investigates the influence of the local environment on the exciton dynamics within molecular aggregates, which build, e.g., the lightharvesting complexes of plants, bacteria or algae by means of the hierarchy equations of motion (HEOM) method. He addresses the following questions in detail: How can coherent oscillations within a system of coupled molecules be interpreted? What are the changes in the quantum dynamics of the system for increasing coupling strength between electronic and nuclear degrees of freedom? To what extent does decoherence govern the energy transfer properties of molecular aggregates?

Title  Testing Quantum Contextuality : The Problem of Compatibility 
Author(s)  Szangolies, Jochen 
Publication  Wiesbaden, 1. Imprint: Springer Spektrum
2. Springer Fachmedien Wiesbaden, 2015. 
Description  XVIII, 108 p. 25 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  Jochen Szangolies contributes a novel way of dealing with the problem of the experimental testability of the KochenSpecker theorem posed by realistic, that is, noisy, measurements. Such noise spoils perfect compatibility between successive measurements, which however is a necessary requirement to test the notion of contextuality in usual approaches. To overcome this difficulty, a new, extended notion of contextuality that reduces to KochenSpecker contextuality in the limit of perfect measurement implementations is proposed by the author, together with a scheme to test this notion experimentally. Furthermore, the behaviour of these tests under realistic noise conditions is investigated. Contents Theoretical Background of the KochenSpecker Theorem NoiseRobustness of KochenSpecker Tests Statistical Models for Noisy Measurements Noncontextual Evolution Target Groups Researchers and students in physics with an interest in foundational issues in Quantum Mechanics and the KochenSpecker Theorem specifically Experimentalists with an interest in testing the implications of the KochenSpecker Theorem About the Author Jochen Szangolies obtained his diploma in physics at the University of Siegen, studying the problem of the experimental verification of quantum contextuality under Prof. Otfried G??hne. Currently, he investigates methods of entanglement detection under the tutelage of Prof. Dagmar Bru?? at the HeinrichHeine University D??sseldorf
