Radiation and particle detectors : proceedings of the International School of Physics "Enrico Fermi", Varenna on Lake Como, Villa Monastero, 20-25 July 2009 by S Bertolucci( )

5 editions published in 2010 in English and Italian and held by 1,400 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

High energy physics (HEP) has a crucial role in the context of fundamental physics. HEP experiments make use of a massive array of sophisticated detectors to analyze the particles produced in high-energy scattering events. This book contains the papers from the workshop 'Radiation and Particle Detectors', organized by the International School of Physics, and held in Varenna in July 2009. Its subject is the use of detectors for research in fundamental physics, astro-particle physics and applied physics. Subjects covered include the measurement of: the position and length of ionization trails, t
From the Big Bang to the nucleosynthesis : proceedings of the International School of Physics "Enrico Fermi" Course CLXXVIII, Varenna on Lake Como, Villa Monastero, 19-24 July 2010 by International School of Physics "Enrico Fermi"( )

10 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 1,367 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Physicists have devoted much effort to reproducing the conditions of the primordial universe in laboratory conditions in their quest to work out a comprehensive theory of the appearance and evolution of nuclear matter. Whether it be trying to recreate the predicted primordial state of high-energy density matter in which quarks and gluons are effectively deconfined - the so-called Quark Gluon Plasma (QGP) - or exploring the structure and reaction properties of very unstable nuclei in experiments using radioactive beams, they have striven to understand the events which characterized the Big Bang
Plasmas in the universe : proceedings of the International School of Physics "Enrico Fermi", course CXLII, Varenna on Lake Como, Villa Monastero, 6-16 July 1999 by B Coppi( )

10 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 1,270 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book illustrates new developments in the fields of space and solar physics, stellar physics, extragalactic physics and cosmology. It also elaborates upon the progress of laboratory plasma physics. One of the topics discussed is the existence of collective processes, both linear and non-linear, that can explain key elements of accretion physics, magnetic reconnection, the formation of 'strange' particle distributions, particle scattering phenomena, etc. Astrophysical plasma are dominated by turbulent or quasi-turbulent processes which interactively associate instabilities, radiation proces

The physics of diamond : Varenna on Lake Como, Villa Monastero, 23 July-2 August, 1996 by A Paoletti( )

10 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 1,252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Diamond is an extreme material among possible atomic aggregations in nature, and as such has many extreme properties. This unique position makes it a fascinating subject both for science and for applications. This has been particularly true in recent years, since the surprising discovery at Union Carbide (1953) of the possibility of chemical vapour deposition of diamond films at low pressures, where diamond is metastable with respect to graphite. This discovery cleared the way to the development of economical deposition techniques that have been obtaining progressively better-quality diamond

Selected topics in nonperturbative QCD : Varenna on Lake Como, Villa Monastero, 27 June-7 July 1995 by Società italiana di fisica( )

9 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 1,245 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book addresses aspects of QCD which are related to its underlying structure as a field theory and to its mechanisms. Perturbative expansions do not work at large distances for QCD: the hadron spectrum, the confinement of colour, its deconfinement at high temperatures and the breaking of chiral symmetry all need nonperturbative methods of analysis. Sum rules, chiral perturbation theory and the formulation of QCD on a lattice are some of the tools used to test models, like the stochastic vacuum, the instanton liquid or the consideration of monopoles in the vacuum to produce dual superconduct
Coherent and collective interactions of particles and radiation beams : Varenna on Lake Como, Villa Monastero, 11-21 July 1995 by Alain Aspect( )

9 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 1,242 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is especially concerned with fundamental theoretical and experimental aspects of relativistic beam physics, recoil, and cooling phenomena in atomic and ion beams and traps, with emphasis on coherence and collective effects. The central theme is the physics of atomic laser and free electron laser, and the development of a bridge between them through the mechanism of the so-called recoil induced gain mechanism. The links between relativistic beam physics and atomic laser physics are explored. This book is targeted at an audience of non-specialists or specialists in only one of the fiel
Heavy flavour physics : a probe of nature's grand design : Varenna on Lake Como, Villa Monastero, 8-18 July 1997 by I Bigi( )

7 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 1,241 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The lectures collected in this book present a comprehensive review of the current knowledge of heavy-quark physics, from the points of view of both theory and experiment. Heavy Flavour Physics has accomplished enormous progress during the last few years: the last heavy quark has been discovered and the quality of the collected data on the other relatively lighter quarks has dramatically improved. On the theory side, noticeable progress has been reported on new calculations of decay rates based on various techniques, such as QCD sum rules, heavy-quark mass expansion and lattice QCD. The theory
Biomedical applications of synchrotron radiation by Emilio Burattini( )

4 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 1,241 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The unique properties of synchroton radiation including its broad spectrum extending from the infrared to the hard-X-ray region, its high degree of collimation and its polarization make it a powerful tool for a very wide range of applications. Initially it was mainly used to carry out experiments in classical fields like atomic and molecular physics, solid-state physics, chemistry, radiometry and so on. Nowadays it is widely used in many other fields like biophysics, biochemistry, macromolecular crystallography, microtomography, X-ray microscopy, X-ray holography, X-ray lithography, micro engi
Past and present variability of the solar-terrestrial system : measurement, data analysis, and theoretical models : Varenna on Lake Como, Villa Monastero, 25 June-5 July 1996 by G Cini Castagnoli( )

11 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 1,239 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The global climate of the Earth has significantly varied over the last millennia. On a regional scale, the climate has varied and does presently vary on many different time scales, leading to a continuously changing pattern of temperatures, humidity, precipitation, with important effects on the whole terrestrial biosphere. Physicist are interested in understanding the mechanism at work by gathering data and properly analysing them, by building theoretical models and, if possible, making predictions on the future evolution of the system. Along these lines, an important question is to understand
Silicon-based microphotonics : from basics to applications : course CXLI : Varenna on Lake Como, Villa Monastero, 21-31 July 1998 by O Bisi( )

8 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 1,237 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The evolution of Si-based optoelectronics has been extremely fast in the last few years and it is predicted that this growth will still continue in the near future. The aim of the volume is to present different Si-based luminescing materials as porous silicon, rare-earth doped silicon, Si nanocrystals, silicides, Si-based multilayers and silicon-germanium alloy or superlattice structures. The different devices needed for an all-Si-based optoelectronics are treated, ranging from light sources to waveguides, from amplifiers and modulators to detectors. Both the very basic treatments as well as a
