Thomas Brabec - Strong Field Laser Physics Published: 2008-10-13 | ISBN: 038740077X | PDF | 592 pages | 16 MB
Since the invention of the laser in the 1960s, people have strived to reach higher intensities and shorter pulse durations. High intensities and ultrashort pulse durations are intimately related. Recent developments have shown that high intensity lasers also open the way to realize pulses with the shortest durations to date, giving birth to the field of attosecond science (1 asec = 10-18s). This book is about high-intensity lasers and their applications. The goal is to give an up to date introduction to the technology behind these laser systems and to the broad range of intense laser applications. These applications include AMO (atomic molecular and optical) physics, x-ray science, attosecond science, plasma physics and particle acceleration, condensed matter science and laser micromachining, and finally even high-energy physics.

Shashanka S. Mitra - Physics of Structurally Disordered Solids Published: 1976-07-01 | ISBN: 1468408526, 0306357208 | PDF | 791 pages | 17 MB
Structurally disordered solids are characterized by their lack of spatial order that is evidenced by the great variety of ordered solids. The former class of materials is commonly termed amorphous or glassy, the latter crystalline. However, both classes share, many of the other physical properties of solids, e. g. , me chanical stability, resistance to shear stress, etc. The traditional macroscopic distinction between the crystalline and the glassy states is that while the former has a fixed melting point, the latter does not. However, with the availability and production of a large number of materials in both crystalline and amorphous states, and their easy inter-convertability, simple de finitions are not possible or at best imprecise. For the present purpose, it is sufficient to say that in contrast to the crystalline state, in which the posi tions of atoms are fixed into adefinite structure, ex cept for small thermal vibrations, the amorphous state of the same material displays varying degrees of de parture from this fixed structure. The amorphous state almost always shows no long range order. Short range order, up to several neighbors, may often be retained, although averaged considerably around their crystalline values. It is generally believed that the amorphous state is a metastable one with respect to the crystal line ordered state, and the conversion to the crystal line state may or may not be easy depending on the na ture of the material, e. g.

The latest release of our industry-leading engineering simulation portfolio, ANSYS 15.0 brings together new capabilities and enhancements that offer a more comprehensive approach to guide and optimize complete product designs. As products trend toward greater complexity ??? with advanced functionality and features, novel materials (such as composites), embedded electronics and their resulting thermal issues, and control software for smart operation ??? single-physics analysis (or uncoupled multiple physics) is not adequate for designing optimum products. The release introduces pre-processing capabilities that boost automation and ease of setup as well as high-performance computing enhancements that enable analysis of ever-larger models and faster processing times. Together, the features deliver insights into the most challenging product designs.
