Cobertura temática

Since publication of the 1st edition in 2002, there has been a deep evolution of the global communication network with the entry of submarine cables in the Terabit era. Thanks to optical technologies, the transmission on a single fiber can achieve 1 billion simultaneous phone calls across the ocean!

Modern submarine optical cables are fueling the global internet backbone, surpassing by far all alternative techniques. This new edition of Undersea Fiber Communication Systems provides a detailed explanation of all technical aspects of undersea communications systems, with an emphasis on the most recent breakthroughs of optical submarine cable technologies. This fully updated new edition is the best resource for demystifying enabling optical technologies, equipment, operations, up to marine installations, and is an essential reference for those in contact with this field.

Each chapter of the book is written by key experts of their domain.

Understanding the Tensile Properties of Concrete

Cobertura temática

The response of concrete under tensile loading is crucial for most applications because concrete is much weaker in tension than in compression. Understanding the response mechanisms of concrete under tensile conditions is therefore key to understanding and using concrete in structural applications. Understanding the tensile properties of concrete summarises key recent research in this important subject.

After an introduction to concrete, the book is divided into two parts: part one on static response and part two on dynamic response. Part one starts with a summary chapter on the most important parameters that affect the tensile response of concrete. Chapters show how multi scale modelling is used to relate concrete composition to tensile properties. Part two focuses on dynamic response and starts with an introduction to the different regimes of dynamic loading, ranging from the low frequency loading by wind or earthquakes up to the extreme dynamic conditions due to explosions and ballistic impacts. Following chapters review dynamic testing techniques and devices that deal with the various regimes of dynamic loading. Later chapters highlight the dynamic behaviour of concrete from different viewpoints, and the book ends with a chapter on practical examples of how detailed knowledge on tensile properties is used by engineers in structural applications.

Drawing on the work of some of the leading experts in the field, Understanding the tensile properties of concrete is a valuable reference for civil and structural engineers as well as those researching this important material.

Use of X-Ray Crystallography in the Design of Antiviral Agents

Cobertura temática

Use of X-Ray Crystallography in the Design of Antiviral Agents describes materials presented at an International Workshop held in Kona, Hawaii on February 6-8, 1989, which discussed the use of X-ray crystallography in the design of antiviral agents.

This book focuses on the approach that determines the three-dimensional structures of viruses and virus proteins with biological activity, such as computer molecular modeling. The three-dimensional structures of a number of immune complexes that involve complexes of antigen with antibodies or peptide antigens complexed with an MHC molecule are also deliberated.

This text emphasizes that the three-dimensional structures allow the rational design of virus replication inhibitors that control virus infections in man and economically important domestic animals.

This publication is a good reference for pharmacists, biochemists, and clinicians researching on the design of antiviral agents.

Cobertura temática

Vacuum Deposition onto Webs: Films and Foils, Third Edition, provides the latest information on vacuum deposition, the technology that applies an even coating to a flexible material that can be held on a roll, thereby offering a much faster and cheaper method of bulk coating than deposition onto single pieces or non-flexible surfaces such as glass.

This technology has been used in industrial-scale applications for some time, including a wide range of metalized packaging. Its potential as a high-speed, scalable process has seen an increasing range of new products emerging that employ this cost-effective technology, including solar energy products that are moving from rigid panels onto cheaper and more versatile flexible substrates, flexible electronic circuit ‘boards’, and flexible displays.

In this third edition, all chapters are thoroughly revised with a significant amount of new information added, including newly developed barrier measurement techniques, improved in-vacuum monitoring technologies, and the latest developments in Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD).

  • Provides the know-how to maximize productivity of vacuum coating systems
  • Thoroughly revised with a significant amount of new information added, including newly developed barrier measurement techniques, improved in-vacuum monitoring technologies, and the latest on Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD)
  • Presents the latest information on vacuum deposition, the technology that applies an even coating to a flexible material that can be held on a roll, thereby offering a much faster and cheaper method of bulk coating
  • Enables engineers to specify systems more effectively and enhances dialogue between non-specialists and suppliers/engineers
  • Empowers those in rapidly expanding fields such as solar energy, display panels, and flexible electronics to unlock the potential of vacuum coating to transform their processes and products

Virtual Synthesis of Nanosystems by Design: From First Principles to Applications

Este recurso está disponible en las siguientes plataformas

Cobertura temática

This is the only book on a novel fundamental method that uses quantum many body theoretical approach to synthesis of nanomaterials by design. This approach allows the first-principle prediction of transport properties of strongly spatially non-uniform systems, such as small QDs and molecules, where currently used DFT-based methods either fail, or have to use empirical parameters. The book discusses modified algorithms that allow mimicking experimental synthesis of novel nanomaterials---to compare the results with the theoretical predictions--and provides already developed electronic templates of sub-nanoscale systems and molecules that can be used as components of larger materials/fluidic systems.

  • The only publication on quantum many body theoretical approach to synthesis of nano- and sub-nanoscale systems by design.
  • Novel and existing many-body field theoretical, computational methods are developed and used to realize the theoretical predictions for materials for IR sensors, light sources, information storage and processing, electronics, light harvesting, etc. Novel algorithms for EMD and NEMD molecular simulations of the materials’ synthesis processes and charge-spin transport in synthesized systems are developed and described.
  • Includes the first ever models of Ni-O quantum wires supported by existing experimental data.
  • All-inclusive analysis of existing experimental data versus the obtained theoretical predictions and nanomaterials templates.
