• The Edge of Physics

A scientific and globetrotting exploration of the physics experiments changing the ways we understand our universe.Why is the universe expanding? What is the nature of dark matter? Do other universes exist? In this timely and original book, science writer Anil Ananthaswamy embarks on a global journey to some of the world’s most inhospitable and dramatic research sites to witness first-hand the ...

• Megamassive Black Holes and the Steady State Universe

This treatise offers an alternative paradigm to the 'Big Bang' theory of the origin of the universe. It takes a fresh look at current cosmological knowledge, suggests the existence of and defines a Megamassive Black Hole. The existence of such bodies allows a rational argument for a steady state universe. This paradigm does not require a singularity at a particular moment, arguably the beginning ... Read more

• Luminescence Spectroscopy of Semiconductors

by and 1 more

This book reviews up-to-date ideas of how the luminescence radiation in semiconductors originates and how to analyze it experimentally. The book fills a gap between general textbooks on optical properties of solids and specialized monographs on luminescence. It is unique in its coherent treatment of the phenomenon of luminescence from the very introductory definitions, from light emission in bulk ... Read more

• Materials Modelling using Density Functional Theory

This book is an introduction to the quantum theory of materials and first-principles computational materials modelling. It explains how to use density functional theory as a practical tool for calculating the properties of materials without using any empirical parameters. The structural, mechanical, optical, electrical, and magnetic properties of materials are described within a single unified ... Read more

• Design, Synthesis and Applications of One-Dimensional Chalcogenide Hetero-Nanostructures

series
This thesis focuses on the design and synthesis of novel one-dimensional colloidal chalcogenide hetero-nanostructures for enhancing solar energy conversion applications. Semiconducting nanomaterials are particular attractive for energy conversion due to the quantum confinement effects dictating their unique optical and electronic properties. Steering the photo-induced charge-flow based on unique ... Read more

• Electronic Structure

The study of the electronic structure of materials is at a momentous stage, with the emergence of computational methods and theoretical approaches. Many properties of materials can now be determined directly from the fundamental equations for the electrons, providing insights into critical problems in physics, chemistry, and materials science. This book provides a unified exposition of the basic ... Read more

• Analog Electronic Filters

Filters are essential subsystems in a huge variety of electronic systems. Filter applicationsare innumerable; they are used for noise reduction, demodulation, signal detection, multiplexing, sampling, sound and speech processing, transmission line equalization and image processing, to name just a few. In practice, no electronic system can exist without filters. They can be found in everything from ... Read more

• Handbook of Optical Constants of Solids

This handbook--a sequel to the widely used Handbook of Optical Constants of Solids--contains critical reviews and tabulated values of indexes of refraction (n) and extinction coefficients (k) for almost 50 materials that were not covered in the original handbook. For each material, the best known n and k values have been carefully tabulated, from the x-ray to millimeter-wave region of the spectrum ... Read more

• Classical Statistical Mechanics with Nested Sampling

series
This thesis develops a nested sampling algorithm into a black box tool for directly calculating the partition function, and thus the complete phase diagram of a material, from the interatomic potential energy function. It represents a significant step forward in our ability to accurately describe the finite temperature properties of materials. In principle, the macroscopic phases of matter are ... Read more

• Three-Dimensional Nanoarchitectures

by and 1 more

Devices built from three-dimensional nanoarchitectures offer a number of advantages over those based on thin-film technology, such as larger surface area to enhance the sensitivity of sensors, to collect more sunlight to improve the efficiency of solar cells, and to supply higher density emitters for increased resolution in flat panel displays. Three-dimensional nanoscale assembly has already been ... Read more
