Title  The Fundamentals of Newtonian Mechanics : For an Introductory Approach to Modern Physics 
Author(s)  Spurio, Maurizio 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Nature Switzerland, 2023. 
Description  XIX, 390 p. 151 illus., 140 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  Classical mechanics is the basis for any universitylevel study of technicalscientific disciplines. But most existing manuals use a technological and engineering approach, with basic aspects sometimes insufficiently highlighted. This book introduces the concepts and applications of classical mechanics into Newtonian formalism. Newtonian dynamics is useful for solving applied physics and engineering problems, but also a fascinating theory anchored in questions posed since the times of the Greek philosophers, regarding space, the flow of time, measurable physical quantities, the physical principles with the mathematical structure needed to describe the Universe, etc. The author aims to encourage students to think about these fundamental aspects and how they will be addressed in modern physics, including the successes and limitations of Newton's mechanics. The book is designed to mirror the progress of the students using it, with earlier chapters assuming no more than basic high school instruction and later ones geared toward subsequent enhanced understanding. The book is designed for students of undergraduate programs in physics, mathematics, chemistry, and engineering who will deal with modern physics, as they will benefit from an approach in which the aspects of classical mechanics are introduced in a propaedeutic approach towards relativistic physics and quantum mechanics

Title  Optically Trapped Microspheres as Sensors of Mass and Sound : Brownian Motion as Both Signal and Noise 
Author(s)  Hillberry, Logan Edward 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Nature Switzerland, 2023. 
Description  XVI, 115 p. 44 illus., 39 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This thesis makes significant advances in the use of microspheres in optical traps as highly precise sensing platforms. While optically trapped microspheres have recently proven their dominance in aqueous and vacuum environments, achieving stateoftheart measurements of miniscule forces and torques, their sensitivity to perturbations in air has remained relatively unexplored. This thesis shows that, by uniquely operating in air and measuring its thermallyfluctuating instantaneous velocity, an optically trapped microsphere is an ultrasensitive probe of both mass and sound. The mass of the microsphere is determined with similar accuracy to competitive methods but in a fraction of the measurement time and all while maintaining thermal equilibrium, unlike alternative methods. As an acoustic transducer, the airbased microsphere is uniquely sensitive to the velocity of sound, as opposed to the pressure measured by a traditional microphone. By comparison to stateoftheart commerciallyavailable velocity and pressure sensors, including the world???s smallest measurement microphone, the microsphere sensing modality is shown to be both accurate and to have superior sensitivity at high frequencies. Applications for such highfrequency acoustic sensing include dosage monitoring in proton therapy for cancer and event discrimination in bubble chamber searches for dark matter. In addition to reporting these scientific results, the thesis is pedagogically organized to present the relevant history, theory, and technology in a straightforward way

Title  Fundamentals of Molecular Spectroscopy 
Author(s)  Mallick, Prabal Kumar 
Publication  Singapore, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Nature Singapore, 2023. 
Description  XXVIII, 475 p. 178 illus., 2 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book presents detailed aspects of different fields of molecular spectroscopy. It consists of eleven chapters starting from the Born???Oppenheimer approximation and its relevance to various spectra to some topics on nonlinear spectroscopy through rotational, vibrational, Raman, and electronic spectroscopy, group theoretical application, nuclear magnetic resonance, electron spin resonance, nuclear quadrupole resonance, and Mossbauer spectroscopy. The intention is to present a good background of the theoretical aspects of the concerned fields which will help the readers to understand the subject firmly and apply them to their own fields according to their needs. For this purpose, several problems have been worked out to make the readers understand how the theories are applied in the relevant practical cases. In this book, it is presumed that the readers are well acquainted with the fundamentals of the basic subjects of physics, for example, mathematical methods, classical mechanics, quantum mechanics, statistical mechanics, and electrodynamics. The purpose of writing is not only to bring a wider field in a single book but also to develop the theories starting from the fundamentals and also from the simple to the final forms through fairly elaborate powerful techniques so that the readers become selfsufficient and apply them accordingly. Since this book covers most of the major fields of molecular spectroscopy, it reduces the work of searching several publications and serves the purpose of getting detailed deductive pictures of various aspects of the subject in a single publication

Title  The Nature of XRays and Their Interactions with Matter 
Author(s)  St??hr, Joachim 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2023. 
Description  XXVII, 921 p. 323 illus., 265 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book gives a comprehensive account of modern xray science, based on the use of synchrotron radiation and xrayfree electron lasers (XFELs). It emphasizes the new capabilities of XFELs which extend the study of matter to the intrinsic timescales associated with the motion of atoms and chemical transformations and give birth to the new field of nonlinear xray science. Starting with the historical understanding of the puzzling nature of light, it covers the modern description of the creation, properties, and detection of xrays within quantum optics. It then presents the formulation of the interactions of xrays with atomic matter, both, from semiclassical and firstprinciples quantum points of view. The fundamental xray processes and techniques, absorption, emission, Thomson, and resonant scattering (REXS and RIXS) are reviewed with emphasis on simple intuitive pictures that are illustrated by experimental results. Concepts of xray imaging and diffractive imaging of atomic and nano structures are discussed, and the quantum optics formulation of diffraction is presented that reveals the remarkable quantum substructure of light. The unique power of xrays in providing atom and chemicalbond specific information and separating charge and spin phenomena through xray polarization (dichroism) effects are highlighted. The book concludes with the discussion of manyphoton or nonlinear xray phenomena encountered with XFELs, such as stimulated emission and xray transparency

Title  Problems in Classical Electromagnetism : 203 Exercises with Solutions 
Author(s)  Macchi, Andrea;Moruzzi, Giovanni;Pegoraro, Francesco 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2023. 
Description  XVII, 581 p. 341 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  This second edition adds 46 new problems, for a total of 203. The solutions to certain ???old??? problems have been revised for improved clarity, in response to questions and comments from our students (secondyear students in the Master???s in Physics program). Each problem is given a title indicating its relation to the various areas of physics or technology. By tackling the problems presented here, students are gently introduced to advanced topics such as unipolar and homopolar motors, magnetic monopoles, radiation pressure, angular momentum of light, bulk and surface plasmons, and radiation friction. We also address a number of tricky concepts and apparent ambiguities and paradoxes encountered in the classical theory of electromagnetism, with a particular focus on conservation laws and transformation properties between different frames of reference. At the same time, the book can be used as an introduction to applications of classical electromagnetism including cuttingedge topics like plasmonics, metamaterials, and lightdriven propulsion. While unnecessary mathematical complexity is avoided, the new edition also provides a few introductory examples concerning elegant and powerful solution techniques. Hopefully the second edition offers an even better teaching tool for undergraduates in physics, mathematics, and electric engineering, and a valuable reference guide for students planning to work in optics, material science, electronics, and plasma physics

Title  PhotoelectronIon Correlation in Photoionization of a Hydrogen Molecule and MoleculePhoton Dynamics in a Cavity 
Author(s)  Nishi, Takanori 
Publication  Singapore, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Nature Singapore, 2022. 
Description  XII, 95 p. 23 illus., 19 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book presents the latest theoretical studies giving new predictions and interpretations on the quantum correlation in molecular dynamics induced by ultrashort laser pulses. The author quantifies the amount of correlation in terms of entanglement by employing methods developed in quantum information science, in particular applied to the photoionization of a hydrogen molecule. It is also revealed that the photoelectron???ion correlation affects the vibrational dynamics of the molecular ion and induces the attosecondlevel time delay in the molecular vibration. Furthermore, the book also presents how molecular vibration can couple to photons in a plasmoic nanocavity. Physicists and chemists interested in the ultrafast molecular dynamics would be the most relevant readers. They can learn how we can employ the quantuminformationscience tools to understand the correlation in the molecular dynamics and why we should consider the correlation between the photoelectron and the molecular ion to describe the ion???s dynamics. They can also learn how to treat a molecule coupled to photons in a nanocavity. All the topics are related to the stateoftheart experiments, and so, it is important to publish these results to enhance the understanding and to induce new experiments to confirm the theory presented.
