Landmark experiments in twentieth century physics by George L Trigg( Book )

35 editions published between 1975 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 880 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Physics is very much an experimental science, but too often, students at the undergraduate level are not exposed to the reality of experimental physics ? i.e., what was done in a given experiment, why it was done, the background of physics against which the experiment was carried out and the changes in theory and knowledge that resulted. In this hook, the author helps to remedy the situation by presenting a variety of "landmark" experiments that have brought about significant alterations in our ideas about some aspect of nature. Among these scientific milestones are discoveries about the wave nature of x-rays, isotopes, the meaning of atomic number, superconductivity, fine structure in the spectrum of helium, the transistor, the neutrino, the maser and laser, higher symmetry for elementary particles and other seminal discoveries. Over 120 illustrations enhance the text, often reproductions of those published with the original experimental results. The result is a fascinating survey ideal as a supplement for intermediate or advanced undergraduate courses in experimental physics, history of science, radio and radar astronomy, crystallography, high energy physics, and other disciplines
Encyclopedia of physics by Rita G Lerner( Book )

12 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 651 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The editors of this Encyclopedia, earlier editions of which met with international acclaim, have now provided a fully revised, expanded and updated third edition of this comprehensive reference work. In two volumes, 500 experts -- among them several Nobel laureates and numerous other scientific award winners -- offer a comprehensive and topical account of physics and the physical world. The volumes comprise more than 500 articles, which have either been completely updated or are altogether new, covering the latest terminology and techniques in physics, including atomic trapping and cooling, biophotonics, econophysics, the formation of stars and planets, quantum communication, space science and technology, and traffic flow. - Publisher
Crucial experiments in modern physics by George L Trigg( Book )

28 editions published between 1971 and 1984 in 4 languages and held by 620 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

AIP physics desk reference( Book )

13 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 583 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a major revision of a classic, best selling reference book. Originally published by the American Institute of Physics under the title "Physics Vade Mecum" in 1981, and then the second edition in 1989 with the new title "A Physicist's Desk Reference", this third edition has been completely updated and modernized to reflect current modern physics. The book is a concise compilation of the most frequently used physics data and formulae with their derivations. This revision has six more chapters than the second edition, outdated chapters dropped, and new chapters added on atmospheric physics, electricity and magnetism, elementary particle physics, fluid dynamics, geophysics, nonlinear physics, particle accelerators, polymer physics, and quantum theory. There is a new last chapter on practical laboratory data. The references and bibliographies have been updated
