 Atomic Physics in Hot Plasmas (International Series of Monographs on Physics) 


Item Notes:  From the Foreword: In recent years, with the advent of new applications for x-ray radiation from hot plasmas, the field of atomic physics in hot plasmas, also called plasma spectroscopy, has received accelerated importance. The list of new applications includes the high tech and industrial prospects of x-ray lasers, x-ray lithography, and microscopy. It also includes new methods for the traditional use of spectroscopy for plasma diagnostics purposes, which are important in laboratory and astrophysical research. Finally, some aspects of plasma spectroscopy are routinely used by the rocket and aircraft industries, as well as by environmental and other applied research fields which use remote sensors. The aim of this book is to provide the reader with both the basics and the recent developments in the field of plasma spectroscopy. The structure of the book enables its use both as a textbook for students and as a reference book for professionals in the field. In contrast to the rapid progress in this field, there has been no parallel coverage in the literature to follow these developments. The most important treatise is still H. Griem's thirty-year-old book (Griem, 1964). Mihalas's book (Mihalas, 1970) contains important material, but is intended for other purposes. The more recent book by Sobelman (Sobelman, 1981) gives an excellent theoretical background, but more limited material which can be used directly by a group involved in plasma experiments or simulations. A series of shorter review articles focus mainly on partial aspects of the field, and a few volumes of conference proceedings present research papers on highly specialized subjects. There seems to be a need for a new comprehensive book, for both tutorial and professional use, which describes the subject in a coherently organized way, and which can be used by both students and the community of professionals active in this field. In fact, the idea of publishing a book on this subject came after discussions with colleagues in the United States, France, Germany, and Japan, in which countries I spent a few months during 1993, while on sabbatical leave. In particular, in the Institute of Laser Engineering, University of Osaka, Japan, I gave a series of eight seminars for the staff and graduate students on this topic. The notes of these seminars were the starting point of this book. 272 pages.


Shipping (Please read!):

All shipments are carefully wrapped with 80# poly-coated Kraft which provides excellent protection from handling and weather.   Heavier items are wrapped with b-flute cardboard.  We use high-proportion recycled fiber content and mimimal plastic content materials.
