Polymer Microscopy

Polymer Microscopy, 3rd version, is a complete and useful consultant to the examine of the microstructure of polymers, and is the results of the authors' a long time of educational and commercial adventure. to handle the wishes of scholars and execs from numerous backgrounds, introductory chapters take care of the fundamental strategies of either polymer morphology and processing and microscopy and imaging conception.

Introduction to Confocal Fluorescence Microscopy, Second Edition

This booklet presents a entire account of the idea of photo formation in a confocal fluorescence microscope in addition to a pragmatic guide to the operation of the tool, its barriers, and the translation of confocal microscopy information. The appendices supply a short connection with optical concept, microscopy-related formulation and definitions, and Fourier idea.

Remote Observatories for Amateur Astronomers: Using High-Powered Telescopes from Home

Beginner astronomers who are looking to increase their functions to give a contribution to technological know-how desire glance no farther than this consultant to utilizing distant observatories. The participants disguise how one can construct your individual distant observatory in addition to the present infrastructure of industrial networks of distant observatories which are on hand to the beginner.

On the Way to Understanding the Time Phenomenon: The Constructions of Time in Natural Science, Part 1

The topic of this e-book is time, one of many small variety of elusive essences of the area, unsubdued by way of human will. the 3 international difficulties of traditional technology, these of the beginning of the Universe, existence and attention, can't be solved with out checking out the character of time. and not using a reliable development of time it truly is very unlikely to explain, to qualify, to forecast and to manage a variety of tactics within the animate and inanimate nature.

The solution of Eq. 6) has a transient term and a steady term [15]. 9) The transient term is reduced by a factor of 1/e, after a time 1/α = 2Q/ω0 . From then, the motion of the tip is dominated by the steady term. The steady term is a harmonic function with a phase lag with respect to the external excitation force. 4 for different values of Q. 4 Plots of Eqs. 10) highlighting the role of the quality factor Q in a harmonic oscillator. The oscillation of a cantilever in liquid has important differences compared with its oscillation in air or in vacuum.
