Adaptive optics and laser guide stars for ground-based telescopes = matching the Hubble Space Telescope at a bargain price by Claire Max( Visual )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dr. Claire Max of the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory investigates techniques for removing atmospheric blurring experienced at astronomical observatories through the use of adaptive optics: fast detectors, computers, and deformable mirrors which correct for the distortions of the atmosphere. Dr. Max concludes with a description of two adaptive optics systems operating at the U.C Lick Observatory and the Keck Observatory in Hawaii
Instability of a Relativistically Strong Electromagnetic Wave of Circular Polarization by Claire Max( Book )

2 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Physics of laser fusion by Claire Max( Book )

1 edition published in 1981 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This monograph deals with the physics of the coronal region in laser fusion targets. The corona consists of hot plasma which has been evaporated from the initially solid target during laser heating. It is in the corona that the laser light is absorbed by the target, and the resulting thermal energy is conducted toward cold high-density regions, where ablation occurs. The topics to be discussed are theoretical mechanisms for laser light absorption and reflection, hot-electron production, and the physics of heat conduction in laser-produced plasmas
Adaptive optics systems : 23-28 June 2008, Marseille, France, Pt. 1( Book )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tactical Infrasound( Book )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

JASON was asked to assist the U.S. Army's National Ground Intelligence (NGIC) in finding ways to enhance the effectiveness of infrasound monitoring. In addition, we were also tasked with determining whether infrasound monitoring was likely to provide information of value in other intelligence venues
Strong Electromagnetic Waves in Overdense Plasmas by Claire Max( Book )

1 edition published in 1971 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The Distribution Function for Small Amplitude Electrostatic Waves with Trapped Particles by Claire Max( Book )

1 edition published in 1971 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Steady-State Solutions for Relativistically Strong Electromagnetic Waves in Plasma by Claire Max( Book )

1 edition published in 1973 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Institute of geophysics and planetary physics at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. 1986 annual report by Lawrence Livermore Laboratory( Book )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The purpose of the Institute of Geophysics and Planetary Physics (IGPP) at LLNL is to enrich the opportunities of University of California campus researchers by making available to them some of the Laboratory's unique facilities and expertise, and to broaden the scientific horizon of LLNL researchers by encouraging collaborative or interdisciplinary work with other UC scientists. The IGPP continues to emphasize three fields of research - geoscience, astrophysics, and high-pressure physics - each administered by a corresponding IGPP Research Center. Each Research Center coordinates the mini-grant work in its field, and also works with the appropriate LLNL programs and departments, which frequently can provide supplementary funding and facilities for IGPP projects. 62 refs., 18 figs., 2 tabs
Locating the two black holes in NGC 6240 by Claire Max( Book )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Cross Field Thermal Transport due to Ion Acoustic Waves in Magnetized Laser Plasmas( Book )

1 edition published in 1977 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

It is shown that cross field temperature gradients can drive ion acoustic waves unstable in a laser produced plasma. The principle effect of the instability is an enhancement of the cross field thermal conductivity. It is shown how this effect can be modeled in laser fusion hydrocodes. (Author)
A sharper image : adaptive optics and laser guide stars for astronomy by Claire Max( Visual )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Dr. Claire Max discusses that adaptive optics is a technology that can remove the blurring effects of turbulence in the earth's atmosphere, so that telescopes on the ground can "see" as clearly as if they were in space. She describes the basic principles of adaptive optics, and illustrates why lasers are needed to increase the fraction of the sky where one can apply adaptive optics corrections as one example of astronomical observations which have benefitted strongly from adaptive optics correction. She describes our recent detections of dual supermassive black holes in colliding galaxies. She concludes with a look forward to the adaptive optics systems of the future
The solar system at high spatial resolution : early applications of adaptive optics at the Keck Telescope by Claire Max( Visual )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Lecture describing the principles behind current astronomical adaptive optics systems, illustrating these principles via the adaptive optics systems at the Lick and Keck Observatories. Also presents high-resolution images from the Keck Observatory of asteroid 216 Kleopatra, storms on Nepture, Titan's atmosphere and surface, and the rings of Uranus
Technical Women's Symposium by Technical Women's Symposium( Visual )
