Cambridge Scholars Publishing’s Physics collection comprises titles from across this wide and exciting field, including books on optical, atomic, applied, and high energy physics. Our books also inspect, and contribute to, new and novel approaches in physics, particularly quantum theories, quantum gravity, and innovative theorisations of entanglement and interconnectedness.
This book serves to familiarize the reader with measurements of optoelectronic components. Its main focus is on the implementation of these measurements and the results obtained, specifically the static electrical and optical characteristics. It therefore links these measurements to solid state physics. Steps are taken to verify th...
This is the first book to investigate the improved performance of optical radiation detectors developed from the ultraviolet to the far-infrared in the past two decades. The development and applications of these improved detectors opened up a new era in radiometric, photometric, colorimetric, and radiation-temperature measurements where earlier blackbody sources and lamps were used with lower performance and in limited application areas. This book will serve to help students, practicing scientists, engineers, technicians, and instrument manufacturers to learn, compare and select the proper detectors for building, using, and calibrating opto-electronic instruments with SI traceability and lowered measurement uncertainty in extended application areas.
In a simple and accessible form, this book presents a unified approach to the physics of the liquid state, both in and out of equilibrium. It discerns, behind the seemingly anarchistic proliferation of phenomena observable in the liquid state, the sequence of causes and effects and, where appropriate, the underlying rules that preside over the general principles.The book begins by introducing the fundamental concepts of statistical mechanics, such as classical and quantum mechanics, probability theory, and the kinetic theory of gases, before moving on to discuss theoretical methods in order to contextualise the study of liquids. The last final section is devoted to ordering in complex fluids.It includes detailed technical notes and explicit calculations, and will appeal to graduate students in physics and chemistry. It will also be of interest the reader interested in statistical mechanics and their application to the physics of dense matter. This book will certainly become an indispensable reference for students and researchers who wish to become familiar with a multifaceted process looking towards new horizons.
