The current quantity I/25H is delivering new facts (excitation energies, spin-parities, half-lifes, branching ratios, cross-sections, spectroscopic components, etc.) for nuclei with atomic numbers Z starting from fifty four (Xe) to one hundred and five (Db) released in 2013-2014, hence updating past compilations supplied within the Landolt-Börnstein volumes I/25A-F.
The facts provided are gathered from every kind of nuclear reactions, together with facts for nuclei faraway from the soundness line. because the time of selection of facts for the volumes I/25A-F many new information seemed from new measurements and evaluations.
The homes of excited nuclear states are of value for clinical and functional purposes. No systematic compilation of such facts has been played thus far. the current compilation has been ready by means of eminent specialists within the box. one of many features of Landolt-Börnstein is that information are evaluated earlier than they're approved for compilation. the belief is to offer ‘best values’ which might be used with self belief by way of non-experts.
In view of the big quantity of information on hand a few of the details is given purely at the on-line platform SpringerMaterials.

Using laser pulses to change the inner quantum constitution of person atoms and molecules has purposes in quantum info processing, the coherent keep an eye on of chemical reactions and in quantum-state engineering. This booklet provides the underlying conception of such quantum-state manipulation for researchers and graduate scholars. The ebook presents the equations, and ways for his or her answer, which are utilized to advanced multilevel quantum structures. It additionally supplies the heritage thought for software to remoted atoms or trapped ions, uncomplicated molecules and atoms embedded in solids. specific consciousness is given to the ways that quantum alterations should be displayed graphically to assist readers know how quantum alterations could be managed.

One of many most sensible promoting Physics Books in response to YBP Library prone appropriate for graduate scholars, skilled researchers, and specialists, this booklet presents a state of the art assessment of the non-relativistic conception of high-energy ion-atom collisions. specific consciousness is paid to four-body interactive dynamics in the course of the most vital theoretical equipment to be had to this point through severely reading their starting place and sensible usefulness relative to almost all of the correct experimental facts. speedy ion-atom collisions are of paramount value in lots of high-priority branches of technology and expertise, together with accelerator-based physics, the quest for brand new assets of power, managed thermonuclear fusion, plasma study, the earth’s surroundings, area learn, particle delivery physics, treatment of melanoma sufferers through heavy ions, and extra. those interdisciplinary fields are wanting wisdom approximately many move sections and collisional premiums for the analyzed quick ion-atom collisions, equivalent to unmarried ionization, excitation, cost alternate, and diverse combos thereof. those contain two-electron transitions, corresponding to double ionization, excitation, or seize, in addition to simultaneous electron move and ionization or excitation and the like—all of that are analyzed intensive during this booklet. Quantum concept of High-Energy Ion-Atom Collisions makes a speciality of multifaceted mechanisms of collisional phenomena with heavy ions and atoms at non-relativistic excessive energies.

The function of this ebook is to supply the description for the "nuts and bolts" institution and operation of a nuclear cardiology laboratory. In so doing, the authors have tried to accommodate the suitable matters laboratory director needs to handle in both constructing the laboratory or preserving its aggressive side and scientific competence through the years. The authors basically tried to spot matters on the topic of outpatient imaging amenities. notwithstanding, the place acceptable matters on the topic of inpatients in hospital-based laboratories also are discussed.
In this new version, the authors have stored the elemental structure tested within the first version. as well as reviewing, editing and updating every one bankruptcy within the first version, they've got extra totally new chapters on puppy imaging, hybrid imaging and the scientific appropriateness of nuclear cardiology approaches.

Thérèse Delpech was once one in every of France’s—and the world’s—most severe and revered students of nuclear guns, technique, and coverage. during this posthumously released quantity, she presents an eloquent evaluate and crucial replace of deterrence thought, focusing a serious eye on nuclear deterrence throughout the chilly warfare, reading the teachings of earlier nuclear crises, and outlining ways that those classes follow to significant nuclear powers and nuclear pretenders today.

It is simply with the finishing of the chilly struggle that the problem of environmental dangers at many former nuclear trying out websites world wide has attracted overseas medical curiosity. This ebook discusses the environmental, ecological, and illnesses linked to nuclear trying out. themes handled comprise dose review, danger, speciation and shipping of radionuclides, dimension and separation of radionuclides, and remedial ideas. The nuclear try websites tested contain the Semipalatinsk Nuclear attempt web site (Kazakhstan), the Nevada attempt web site (USA), the Pacific atolls, and the Maralinga attempt web site (Australia). the amount additionally discusses the extra unlock websites of Chelyabinsk (Russia), Chernobyl (Ukraine), Palomares (Spain), Los Alamos (USA), and others.
A useful compendium of radiological difficulties for a large spectrum of readers, from non-specialist to expert.
By Alasdair H. Neilson
This quantity addresses a huge spectrum of the environmental concerns surrounding natural bromine and iodine compounds. It covers their partition one of the environmental booths and the opportunity of their long-range dissemination. the real factor in their atmospheric chemistry is mentioned intimately within the context of ozone depletion and worldwide warming, and the numerous distinction among the reactions of methyl bromide and methyl iodide are underscored. The mammalian toxicity is mentioned and the mechanisms of the degradation and transformation of natural bromine and iodine compounds addressed. there was massive curiosity in clearly happening metabolites within the present debate at the destiny and partition of methyl bromide that's a tremendous fungicide and is produced in huge amounts as a metabolite of marine algae. the potential traditional incidence of diphenyl ethers which are used as flame retardants have additionally been raised. A dialogue is given on believable mechanisms for the biosynthesis of consultant natural bromine and natural iodine metabolites. response pathways are illustrated all through and finished references are given.
