Computer Simulation of Ion-Solid Interactions by Wolfgang Eckstein

By Wolfgang Eckstein

In this booklet the writer discusses the research of ion bombardment of solids by means of desktop simulation, with the purpose of demonstrating the usefulness of this method of the matter of interactions of ions with solids. a number of the chapters current the fundamental physics in the back of the simulation courses, their constitution and plenty of purposes to diversified subject matters. the 2 major streams, the binary collision version and the classical dynamics version, are mentioned, as are interplay potentials and digital strength losses. the most themes investigated are backscattering, sputtering and implantation for incident atomic debris with energies from the eV to the MeV diversity. an in depth evaluate of the literature is given, making this booklet of curiosity to the lively reseacher in addition to scholars getting into the field.

Nuclear Proliferation and Terrorism in the Post-9/11 World by David Hafemeister

By David Hafemeister

This booklet fills a transparent hole within the literature for a technically-focused booklet overlaying nuclear proliferation and similar concerns post-9/11. utilizing a concept-led procedure which serves a large readership, it presents particular assessment of nuclear guns, nuclear proliferation and foreign nuclear coverage. the writer addresses subject matters together with offensive and shielding missile structures, command and keep watch over, verification, weapon results, and nuclear checking out. A chronology of nuclear hands is gifted together with distinctive dialogue of the chilly struggle, proliferation, and palms keep an eye on treaties.

The ebook is customized to classes on nuclear proliferation, and the overall reader also will locate it a desirable creation to the technological know-how and approach at the back of overseas nuclear coverage within the sleek era.

Nuclear Systems Volume 2: Elements Of Thermal Design by Neil E. Todreas

By Neil E. Todreas

This variation builds on prior traditions in supplying huge subject-area assurance, program of idea to sensible points of industrial nuclear energy, and use of educational goals. just like the first version, it specializes in what distinguishes nuclear engineering from the opposite engineering disciplines. despite the fact that, this variation comprises reorganization and total replace of descriptions of reactor designs and fuel-cycle steps, and extra emphasis on reactor protection, in particular relating to technical and administration classes discovered from the TMI-2 and Chernobyl - four injuries.

Nuclear Medicine in Clinical Oncology: Current Status and by V. Diehl, E. Schell-Frederick (auth.), Cuno Winkler M.D.,

By V. Diehl, E. Schell-Frederick (auth.), Cuno Winkler M.D., Ph.D. (hon.) (eds.)

The advent of nuclear medication into oncology dates again to the early 1 940s, whilst Lawrence suggested at the tumor retention of 32P-phosphate, von Hevesy and von Euler quickly afterwards released their basic paintings at the metabolism of phosphorus in sarcoma cells, and whilst virtually even as Keston and his coworkers de­ scribed their remark of the buildup of radioactive iodine in metastases of a thyroid carcinoma. considering that that point innumerable publi­ cations have seemed in oncologic literature which take care of the appliance of nuclear clinical tools in experimental melanoma re­ seek and in addition within the prognosis and therapy of malignant tumors. the importance of a few initially very effectively utilized scientific equipment clearly has replaced through the years. for example, scin­ tigraphy grew to become slightly less significant for the merely morpho­ common sense review of definite tumors after the advent of transmis­ sion automatic tomography and modem sonographic equipment into scientific perform. nonetheless, notwithstanding, it has additionally been attainable to extra increase scintigraphy to a decisive quantity, either 'with refer­ ence to the try elements utilized and in view of the instrumentation. so far as the scintigraphic gear is worried, the advent of static and sequential electronic imaging through scintillation digicam­ desktops within the mid-1960s represents vital growth, as does the hot improvement of emission automated tomography with unmarried photon and positron emitters.
