About this Item: ReInk Books, 2017. Softcover. Condition: NEW. Reprinted from 1963 edition. NO changes have been made to the original text. This is NOT a retyped or an ocr'd reprint. Illustrations, Index, if any, are included in black and white. Each page is checked manually before printing. As this reprint is from very old book, there could be some missing or flawed pages, but we always try to make the book as complete as possible. Fold-outs, if any, are not part of the book. If the original book was published in multiple volumes then this reprint is of only one volume, not the whole set. This paperback book is SEWN, where the book block is actually sewn (smythe sewn/section sewn) with thread before binding which results in a more durable type of paperback binding. It can also be open wide. The pages will not fall out and will be around for a lot longer than normal paperbacks. This print on demand book is printed on high quality acid-free paper. Original publisher: Directorate of Materials and Processes, Aeronautical Systems Division, Air Force Systems Command, 1963. Seller Inventory # 154306350

About this Item: Dover Publications Inc., United States, 2011. Paperback. Condition: New. 2nd Revised edition. Language: English . Brand New Book. Thin solid films are both functional and intrinsically interesting. Their most familiar use is as coatings on the lenses of optical instruments, where they reduce reflections inside the instrument and produce sharper images. Their curious optical behavior has aroused interest since Newton s time, but has been understood only in modem times through examination of their structure by high-powered microscopes. This text treats the formation, structure, optical properties and uses of thin films, emphasizing the causes of their anomalous optical behavior. Beginning chapters describe the physical nature of thin films-their formation and structure. Heavens discusses thoroughly and practically the common thermal evaporation and sputtering processes. The equipment used is explained and diagrammed. Instruments employed to investigate the structure of thin films -- the optical microscope, electron microscope and field emission microscope -- are described. Photos taken through these instruments show the nonuniform patterns formed by crystallites of silver, gold, chromium, aluminum, nickel and other metals deposited in thin films. The next three chapters measure the effectiveness of alkaline and metallic thin solid films in transmitting and reflecting light. Maxwell s equations of electromagnetic theory are presented to calculate the intensity of light transmitted or reflected by single, double and multilayered films. Thoroughly treated are methods used to measure the thicknesses of films, which include the refractometer and the interferometer. To determine the effect of thickness on the optical qualities of thin films, experiments with films of silver, gold and other metals of varying thicknesses are examined. In the final chapter, Heavens lists some less familiar uses of thin films: protection of delicate equipment from abrasions; films of metal which eliminate electrostatic charges in lab experiments; and multilayered films, used as filters, through which phenomena such as the sun s corona can be studied. Theory and practical detail are emphasized equally in this text. A slight background in differential equations is helpful in following the theoretical portions of the text, but the mathematical basis will not impede those who are chiefly interested in experimental techniques and results.

About this Item: Forgotten Books, United States, 2015. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from The Microbe-Producing-Disease Theory: Inconsistent With the Laws of Nature; How Diseases Are Produced; A New Physiological Law Promulgated I. In order to avoid repetition and for the sake of shortness, the word Microbe shall include all that are at present considered as microbial vital beings, such as those that can only be seen under the microscope, for instance, Schizomycetes, Schizophyta, Microphytes, Micrococci, Bacilli, Spirilli, Bacteria, Leptothrix, Vibriones, Staphylococci, Clostridium, Beggiatoa, Spiromonas, Spirochaete, Cladothrix, and all those that have received no name as yet, as well as those that are too small to be seen under the most powerful microscope. If one of these names actually includes any other, or if one is a derivation from another, matters not; the question 1st is: What is a microbe? Of course, the bacteriologist may say: A microbe is a minute vital organism which can be seen only under the microscope. But, such a definition is, to say the least, not very precise and not a little evasive; for, one having a microscope of a power say 250 can claim that he sees microbes. Another who has a microscope of a power of 1000 can see other microbes. Another still with a power yet higher might claim to see more and other microbes. Where then is the limit to our observation and who can assign it? That there are creatures beyond the range or power of any of our optical contrivances to detect, is, I might say, certain; just as certain as that there are stars in the heavens beyond the range of our most powerful telescopes. Shall we then leave these creatures un-named, or shall we not classify them all under the one head microbes? The latter course would seem to be most rational and at the same time most general and comprehensive. We shall therefore follow it and consequently define microbes as: The minutest forms of life, embracing both what is revealed to us by the microscope and what lies beyond the power of our most powerful optical instruments to detect. Now, should this definition seem extravagant or strange, for after all are there not things which really exist and yet will either never be detected by the senses or cannot? The Ether of the universe, on account of its extreme tenuity is undetectable by any process at present known to science. It does not enter into combination with other substances; therefore, its quantity, quality and action always remain constant. Assuming the atomic theory to be the correct one, ether forms the interstitial medium between the atoms and molecules of all gases, fluids, and solids; entering the inter-atomic and molecular spaces on the expansion of these bodies and receding on their contraction.

About this Item: Dover Publications Inc., United States, 1988. Paperback. Condition: New. New edition. Language: English . Brand New Book. Coherent and lucid a valuable summary of a subject to which [the authors] have made significant contributions by their own research. Contemporary Physics Offering an admirably clear account of the basic principles behind all quantum optical resonance phenomena, and hailed as a valuable contribution to the literature of nonlinear optics, this distinguished work provides graduate students and research physicists probing fields such as laser physics, quantum optics, nonlinear optics, quantum electronics, and resonance optics an ideal introduction to the study of the interaction of electromagnetic radiation with matter. The book first examines the applicability of the two-level model for atoms to real atoms, then explores semiclassical radiation theory, and derives the optical Bloch equations. It then examines Rabi inversion, optical nutation, free-induction decay, coherent optical transient effects, light amplification, superradiance, and photon echoes in solids and gases. Before the publication of this book, much of the material discussed was widely scattered in other books and research journals. This comprehensive treatment brings it together in one convenient resource. The style of writing is clear and informal and the emphasis throughout is always on the physics of the processes taking place. There are numerous helpful illustrations, excellent introductions to each chapter, and lists of references for further reading. The authors have endeavored to create a primer for the field of optical resonance they have succeeded admirably. Their coverage of the subject is remarkably complete.
