Vacuum Microbalance Techniques Volume 8 Proceedings of the Wakefield Conference, June 12-13, 1969

Vacuum Microbalance Techniques Volume 8 Proceedings of the Wakefield Conference, June 12-13, 1969

Author: A.W. Czanderna Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 14/05/2012

This volume contains the proceedings of the Eighth Conference on Vacuum Microbalance Techniques held at Wakefield, Massachusetts on June 12 and 13, 1969. The tenth anniversary of the first confer ence will be registered as this volume passes through the typeset ting and proofreading stages. The eight volumes that have spawned from this continuing series of conferences now contain a total of 125 papers. Thus, these volumes serve as a major repository of the world's literature on vacuum microbalance techniques. The Ninth and Tenth Conferences will be held in West Germany in June 1970 and in Texas in 1971. Each of the eight meetings has served as a forum where new developments in this rapidly advancing field can be presented and discussed constructively within a conference atmosphere of cordial informality. The interaction of the participants at the conferences has led to the first treatise on ultra mlcrogravtmetry;' edited by S. P. Wolsky and E. J. Zdanuk, with most of the fourteen chapters written by steady contributors to the volumes on Vacuum Micro balance Techniques. The number of research investigations and published works in which a vacuum microbalance is utilized con tinues to expandr apldly. f This is a direct result of several types of automatic recording balances that are now available commercial ly. 3 The Eighth Conference was held to bring together again re search scientists and engineers who exploit the measurement of mass as a means of studying physical and chemical phenomena.

Vacuum Manual

Vacuum Manual

Author: L. Holland Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 21/04/2012

Vacuum apparatus is widely used in research and industrial establishments for providing and monitoring the working environments required for the operation of many kinds of scientific instruments and process plant. The vacuum conditions needed range from the relatively coarse vacuum requirements in applications covering diverse fields such as food packaging, dentistry (investment casting), vacuum forming, vacuum metallur gical processes, vacuum impregnation, molecular distillation, vacuum drying and freeze drying etc. to the other extreme involving the highest possible vacuum as in particle accelerators, space technology -both in simulation and outer space, and research studies of atomically clean surfaces and pure condensed metal films. Vacua commence with the rough vacuum region, i.e. from atmosphere to 100 Pa * passing 6 through medium vacuum of 100 Pa to 0*1 Pa and high vacuum of 0*1 Pa to 1 J.lPa (10- Pa) until ultra high vacuum is reached below 1 J.lPa to the limit of measurable pressure about 12 I pPa (10- Pa).

Management of Chemical and Biological Samples for Screening Applications

Management of Chemical and Biological Samples for Screening Applications

Author: Mark Wigglesworth Format: Hardback Release Date: 14/03/2012

Filling an obvious gap in the scientific literature, this practice-oriented reference is the first to tie together the working knowledge of large screening centers in the pharmaceutical and biotechnological field. It spans the entire fi eld of this emerging discipline, from compound acquisition to collection optimization for specific purposes, to technology and quality control. In so doing, it applies two decades of expertise gathered by several large pharmaceutical companies to current and future challenges in high-throughput screening. With its treatment of libraries of small molecules as well as biobanks containing biomolecules, microorganisms and tissue samples, this reference is universally applicable for any molecular scientist involved in a large screening program.

Total and Partial Pressure Measurement in Vacuum Systems

Total and Partial Pressure Measurement in Vacuum Systems

Author: John Henry Leck Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 09/02/2012

This book deals with the underlying theory and practical aspects of pressure gauges that are at present in general use. Because of the ever-increasing demands to provide a wider range of sophisticated and reliable vacuum equipment a good understanding of these instruments is of vital importance to all workers in the research and industrial sectors. Of the gauges considered only the mechanical types are absolute, in the sense that they measure pressure directly as a force upon a liquid column or a solid surface. Under ideal conditions it is possible to calculate their sensitiv ities, which are the same for all gases and vapours. The recent developments in the viscous or molecular damping gauges indicate that these may also be considered absolute. Other gauges are indirect in that they involve the measurement of some secondary phenomenon which is pressure-dependent and therefore these gauges can only be used for measurement after calibration against an absolute standard. The radiometer or Knudsen type gauge has been excluded from the text since these are now only of historic interest. Also no mention is made of the integration techniques involving surface changes (such as work function) although these could have application under very special circumstances. The McLeod gauge is dealt with in some detail, for even though this gauge has few practical applications, it is the most sensitive absolute gauge available and has value as a reference standard.

Experimente mit dem Stirlingmotor

Experimente mit dem Stirlingmotor

Author: Ulrich E. Stempel Format: eBook Release Date: 01/01/2012

Stirlingmotoren zahlen neben Dampfmaschinen zu den altesten Warmekraftmaschinen. Sie weisen in der theoretischen Berechnung einen hoheren Wirkungsgrad auf als Dampfmaschinen und auch Verbrennungsmotoren wie Benzin- oder Dieselmotoren. Obwohl das Grundprinzip des Stirlingmotors schon relativ alt ist, ist die Anwendung heutzutage sinnvoller denn je. Der Grund: Stirlingmotoren konnen mit unterschiedlichen Primarenergiequellen betrieben werden. Das reicht von Holz und Reisstroh uber Gas und Biogas bis hin zur Solarenergie. Und Stirlingmotoren lassen sich universell einsetzen: sowohl in der Haustechnik (Blockheizkraftwerk, Klimaanlagen) als auch fur die Antriebstechnik, z. B. im Auto, in Wasserfahrzeugen und fur Arbeitsmaschinen.

Catalogue of the Special Loan Collection of Scientific Apparatus at the South Kensington Museum 1876

Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 29/12/2011

In 1876 the South Kensington Museum held a major international exhibition of scientific instruments and equipment, both historical and contemporary. Many of the items were retained and eventually formed the basis of important collections now held at the Science Museum, London. This is the 1877 third edition of the exhibition catalogue, which was expanded to include a 'large number of objects' received since the publication of the second edition, and which also included corrections in order to 'afford a complete record of the collection for future reference'. In two volumes and twenty sections comprising over 4,500 entries, the catalogue lists a huge variety of items, ranging from slide rules and telescopes to lighthouse parts and medical equipment. It gives detailed explanations of how they were used, and notes of their ownership and provenance, while the opening pages comprehensively record the contributing individuals and institutions in Britain, Europe and America.

The TELESCOPE

The TELESCOPE

Format: Hardback Release Date: 20/09/2011

As an instrument of science and navigation the telescope was at the forefront of discovery. Even today it is vital to modern understanding of space and the origins of matter. The story of its development is a fascinating narrative of scientific endeavour, exploration and ingenuity, encompassing the lives of scientists and astronomers such as Galileo, Newton, William Herschel and Edmund Halley as well as the exploits of naval officers and explorers like Cloudesley Shovell and James Cook. Richard Dunn presents an engaging historical survey that traces the telescope from its invention in 1608 to its contemporary applications in astrophysics. Profusely illustrated with exquisite examples of telescopes and other prints, drawings and artworks, The Telescope will appeal to all those with an interest in science, discovery and exploration, maritime history, seafaring or astronomy.
