Computational approaches for predicting the optical properties of materials are at a stage of rapid development. Because a quantitative description of the optical properties of materials depends on both ground-state and excited-state properties, progress has been slower here than in other areas. However, advances in computational resources and algorithmic developments have dramatically altered this situation. This book brings together researchers from many different disciplines to meet and share ideas. A major focus is on techniques to predict and understand the optical and dielectric properties of materials. Experimental developments, as well as future research areas, are also incorporated. Topics include: bulk materials - ab initio theory; surfaces and polymers; clusters and nanocrystals; confined quantum systems/ quantum dots; nonlinear optical effects; semiconductor lasers, heterostructures and alloys; light-emitting materials; materials and materials characterization techniques; and optical engineering and lightwave propagation.



Boron And Gadolinium Neutron Capture Therapy For Cancer Treatment

Boron And Gadolinium Neutron Capture Therapy For Cancer Treatment

by Narayan S. Hosmane (Author), John A. Maguire (Author), Yinghuai Zhu (Author), Masao Takagaki (Author)
List Price: $128.00  

Technical Details | Add To Wishlist | All Customer Reviews

The book focuses on two concurrent experimental therapies in cancer treatment known as boron neutron capture therapy (BNCT) and gadolinium neutron capture therapy (GdNCT) using a variety of boron- and gadolinium-based compounds. Some of the gadolinium compounds serve the dual purpose as being MRI contrast agents and GdNCT agents. The book describes why BNCT & GdNCT were not at the forefront of the clinical trials during the past seven to eight decades since the discovery of neutrons by John Chadwick in 1932 and how the latest development in the synthesis of target boron- and gadolinium-based drugs has turned the area into the hottest one worthy of further investigation with the new clinical trials in the USA and elsewhere.

And nowhere is the development of instrumentation and associated techniques more important to scientific progress than in the area of nanoscience. The dramatic expansion of efforts to peer into nanoscale materials and processes has made it critical to capture and summarize the cutting-edge instrumentation and techniques that have become indispensable for scientific investigation in this arena. This Handbook is a key resource developed for scientists, engineers and advanced graduate students in which eminent scientists present the forefront of instrumentation and techniques for the study of structural, optical and electronic properties of semiconductor nanostructures.



Nanomagnetism and Spintronics: Fabrication, Materials, Characterization and Applications

Nanomagnetism and Spintronics: Fabrication, Materials, Characterization and Applications

List Price: $120.00  

Technical Details | Add To Wishlist | All Customer Reviews

Spintronics manipulates individual magnetic moments to integrate logic functions and non-volatile information storage on the same platform. As is often the case in condensed matter science, advances are made through the synthesis of novel materials and high quality new physics materials. Giant magnetoresistance and dilute magnetic semiconductors are two such examples. However, the remarkable potential of spintronics for quantum computation faces major challenges when it comes to controlling simultaneously several qbits encoded in magnetic moments. After a brief introduction to concepts in nanomagnetism and spintronics, the text reviews recent techniques and their achievements in the synthesis and fabrication of magnetic nanostructures. The methods presented here emphasize bottom up or top down approaches for nanodots, nanowires and thin films. They include: focused ion beam irradiation, electron beam-induced chemical vapour deposition, chemical, and electrochemical methods. The later part of the book reviews magnetoelectric materials, the giant magnetoresistance in magnetic superlattices, dynamics effects in spin transfer torque oscillators, dilute magnetic oxides, rare earth nitrides with nuclear resonance scattering, and Mössbauer spectroscopy in spintronics. Finally, the last part of this book discusses applications to magnetic storage and bio-magnetism. Nanomagnetism and Spintronics will be useful to graduate students and researchers and engineers in the field of nanoscience.
