Grieg: Music, Landscape and Norwegian Identity by Daniel M. Grimley

By Daniel M. Grimley

Whereas Grieg's song maintains to take pleasure in a trendy position within the live performance corridor and recording catalogues, it has but to draw sustained analytical recognition in Anglo-American scholarship. Daniel Grimley examines the function which tune and panorama performed within the formation of Norwegian cultural identification within the 19th century, and the functionality that panorama has played in Grieg's paintings. It provides new views at the relationships among track, panorama and id. This rigidity among competing musical discourses - the folklorist, the nationalist and the modernist - deals probably the most brilliant narratives in late-nineteenth and early-twentieth-century tune, and means that Grieg is a extra complicated and demanding ancient determine than his serious reception has frequently looked as if it would recommend. it really is during the contested class of panorama, this booklet argues, that those tensions might be contextualised and eventually resolved.

Fundamentals of Optical Fiber Sensors by Zujie Fang, Ken Chin, Ronghui Qu, Haiwen Cai, Kai Chang

By Zujie Fang, Ken Chin, Ronghui Qu, Haiwen Cai, Kai Chang

This e-book describes the most recent improvement in optical fiber units, and their purposes to sensor expertise. Optical fiber sensors, a massive program of the optical fiber, have skilled quickly improvement, and attracted vast attentions in uncomplicated technology in addition to in sensible applications. Sensing is frequently likened to human experience organs. Optical fiber cannot basically delivery info bought by way of sensors at excessive pace and massive quantity, but additionally can play the jobs of sensing point itself. Compared with electrical and different varieties of sensors, fiber sensor expertise has specified merits. It has benefits over traditional cumbersome optic sensors, equivalent to mix of sensing and sign transportation, smaller dimension, and chance of creating disbursed systems. Fiber sensor know-how has been utilized in a number of parts of undefined, transportation, communique, protection and protection, in addition to day-by-day life. Its value has been turning out to be with the development of the expertise and the growth of the scope of its software, a development this booklet totally describes.Content:

Run-to-run control in semiconductor manufacturing by James Moyne, Enrique del Castillo, Arnon M. Hurwitz

By James Moyne, Enrique del Castillo, Arnon M. Hurwitz

Run-to-run (R2R) keep watch over is state-of-the-art know-how that permits amendment of a product recipe among desktop "runs," thereby minimizing approach waft, shift, and variability-and with them, expenditures. Its effectiveness has been confirmed in quite a few methods, similar to vapor section epitaxy, lithography, and chemical mechanical planarization. the one barrier to the semiconductor industry's common adoption of this powerful strategy keep an eye on is a scarcity of knowing of the expertise. Run to Run keep an eye on in Semiconductor production overcomes that barrier via supplying in-depth analyses of R2R keep watch over.

Nanostructured and Subwavelength Waveguides: Fundamentals by Maksim Skorobogatiy

By Maksim Skorobogatiy

Optical waveguides take a favorite position in photonics simply because they may be able to seize and to move mild successfully among some extent of excitation and some degree of detection. furthermore, waveguides permit the administration of the various primary houses of sunshine and make allowance hugely managed interplay with different optical platforms. consequently waveguides are ubiquitous in telecommunications, sensing, spectroscopy, gentle assets, and excessive energy mild supply. Nanostructured and subwavelength waveguides have extra merits; they may be able to confine mild at a size scale under the diffraction restrict and increase or suppress light-matter interplay, in addition to deal with primary houses of sunshine reminiscent of velocity and course of power and section propagation.

This publication provides semi-analytical idea and sensible purposes of a giant variety of subwavelength and nanostructured optical waveguides and fibers working in quite a few areas of the electromagnetic spectrum together with seen, close to and mid-IR and THz. numerous approximate, whereas hugely detailed analytical expressions are derived that describe a variety of modal houses of the planar and round isotropic, anisotropic, and metamaterial waveguides and fibers, in addition to floor waves propagating on planar, and round interfaces. a number of obviously taking place and synthetic fabrics also are thought of reminiscent of dielectrics, metals, polar fabrics, anisotropic all-dielectric and metal-dielectric metamaterials.

Contents are equipped round 4 significant themes:

  • Guidance houses of subwavelength waveguides and fibers made from homogeneous, as a rule anisotropic fabrics
  • Guidance houses of nanostructured waveguides and fibers utilizing either certain geometry modelling and potent medium approximation
  • Development of the potent medium approximations for numerous 1D and second nanostructured fabrics and extension of those approximations to shorter wavelengths
  • Practical purposes of subwavelength and nanostructured waveguides and fibers 

Nanostructured Subwavelengths and Waveguides is exclusive in that it collects in one position an intensive diversity of analytical suggestions that are derived in a variety of limits for lots of essentially very important and well known waveguide and fiber geometries and materials.
