9780123748775: Plasma Scattering of Electromagnetic Radiation, Second Edition: Theory and Measurement Techniques

This work presents one of the most powerful methods of plasma diagnosis in exquisite detail, to guide researchers in the theory and measurement techniques of light scattering in plasmas. Light scattering in plasmas is essential in the research and development of fusion energy, environmental solutions, and electronics.

Referred to as the "Bible" by researchers, the work encompasses fusion and industrial applications essential in plasma research. It is the only comprehensive resource specific to the plasma scattering technique. It provides a wide-range of experimental examples and discussion of their principles with worked examples to assist researchers in applying the theory.

  • Computing techniques for solving basic equations helps researchers compare data to the actual experiment
  • New material on advances on the experimental side, such as the application of high density plasmas of inertial fusion
  • Worked out examples of the scattering technique for easier comprehension of theory

About the Author:

John Sheffield PhD is known worldwide because of his involvement in numerous multi-national fusion energy projects for the U.S. and Europe. In the 1970s, he was on the design team for the 16-nation, Joint European Torus project at Culham in England; in the 1990s, he served as a U.S. representative on committees that defined and then gave technical advice to the International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor (ITER)-China, Europe, India, Japan, Korea, Russia, and the United States.

He served on the US-DOE's Fusion Energy Sciences Advisory Committee for over a decade, chairing it from 1996 to 2000. From 1988 to 1994, he was director of Fusion Energy at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory. From 1995 to 2003, he was director for Energy Technology Programs at ORNL, and from 1997 also director of the Joint Institute for Energy and Environment at the University of Tennessee. There he remains as a Senior Fellow in what is now called the Institute for a Secure and Sustainable Environment.

Book Description Academic Press, 2010. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "I expect that the revised version of the original book of John Sheffield will be used as a standard text book for students and for researchers (especially diagnosticians) in a very wide field of plasma applications (going from low temperature industrial plasmas, via high temperature fusion plasmas to ultra-dense plasmas used in inertial fusion). The balance between theory (and the accompanying mathematics) and the description of experimental applications is very good. I enjoyed reading the book (but didn't have time yet to solve all problems on my own without sneaking in the solutions). I will certainly use the book in my courses for Master and Graduate students, and I warmly recommend it to anyone working in the field of scattering of radiation in plasmas."-- Fusion Science & Technology.
