Physical Chemistry Femtosecond Laser-Matter Interaction Theory, Experiments and Applications


Introduction to Nuclear Science Second Edition Jeff C. Bryan

Eugene Gamaly Australian National University, Canberra

University of Wisconsin, La Crosse, USA

“This book gives an overview of the fundamentals and applications of laser–matter interactions with ultra-short laser pulses (with a pulse duration of 100 fs or less). … It is very useful to have a monograph that gives a systematic description of the various aspects of such interactions. [This] book will be very useful to a broad range of readers, from graduate students to professional physicists.”

This introductory science textbook covers general aspects of nuclear chemistry and physics. It discusses how nuclear science impacts our daily lives through medicine, electrical power generation, food safety, waste, and weapons. With additional end-of-chapter problems, the text provides critical information for students earning nuclear-related degrees in the coming years, as well as providing an accessible reference for anyone with some post-secondary education and an interest in nuclear issues.

—Prof. Boris Luk’yanchuk, Data Storage Institute, Singapore

“An excellent and comprehensive overview of the mechanisms involved and recent developments in the field, this book covers the necessary background knowledge, which makes it appropriate for postgraduate students and researchers.” —Prof. Costas Fotakis, Director, IESL-FORTH, Greece

This book covers the interaction of laser pulses with solids at nonrelativistic intensity. It connects phenomena from the subtle atomic motion on the nanoscale to the generation of extreme pressure and temperature in the interaction zone confined inside a solid. With mathematics kept to a minimum, this is a highly engaging and readable treatment for students and researchers in science and engineering. The book avoids complex mathematical formulae, and hence, the content is accessible to nontechnical readers. Useful summaries after each chapter provide compressed information for the quick estimates of major parameters in planned or performed experiments.

Selected Contents: Basics of Ultra-Short Laser–Solid Interactions. Subtle Atomic Motion Preceding a Phase Transition: Birth, Life and Death of Phonons.

Physical Chemistry

Concise Chemical Thermodynamics


Third Edition

The Principles of Thermodynamics

A.P.H. Peters

N.D. Hari Dass

Hogeschool Zuyd, Heerlen, The Netherlands

Chennai Mathematical Institute, Siruseri, Tamilnadu, India

Following in the tradition of its predecessors, this third edition continues to offer a practical, example-based exploration of a critical topic, maintaining academic rigor but eschewing complicated calculations. It discusses the world’s current energy consumption and the role of renewable energy in the future, examines exothermic reactions, uses Mathcad® to calculate a plot of Gibbs energy, explains the Lambda sensor, and employs FactSage software to calculate and describe the production of silicon in an arc (oven) furnace. It also re-works problems that have proven to be the most difficult for students and adds several new ones to further amplify complex areas.

This text presents the conceptual and technical developments of the subject without unduly compromising on either the historical or logical perspective. It also covers the tremendous range of scientifically deep and technologically revolutionary applications of thermodynamics. The text explains how thermodynamics evolved from a few basic laws that were amazingly successful and with tremendous range, without even knowing about the atomic structure of matter or the laws governing the behavior of atoms.

• Presents thermodynamics in a clear way, minimizing the use of complicated mathematics
