The field of thermoplasmonics has developed rapidly in the last decade and is now an active area of research due to its countless applications in nanoscience and nanomedicine. This accessible overview of the topic provides a detailed discussion of the relevant underlying theory in nanophotonics and the latest, cutting-edge applications.
A balanced combination of introductory and advanced topics provides a new and unique perspective on the quantum field theory approach to condensed matter physics. Presenting new insights on traditional topics, this text allows graduate students and researchers to master the theoretical tools in a variety of condensed matter physics systems.
What do atomic nuclei, neutron stars, a domestic power supply, and the stunning colors of stained glass in cathedrals all have in common? The answer lies in the unifying concept of quantum fluids, which allows us to understand the behavior and properties of these different systems in simple terms. This...
This book provides a comprehensive introduction to the electronic and optical properties and potential applications of 2D materials. Presenting the most recent experimental findings of leading experts in the field, it is an ideal reference for students, researchers and practitioners working in nanotechnology, condensed matter physics, and chemistry.
This volume is an introduction to interfacial phenomena. It collects the lecture notes from a one month Summer school in Les Houches. The courses and the notes are intended to be especially useful for master and PhD students as well as young researchers.
The methods of coupled quantum field theory, which have played a major role in the extensive development of nonrelativistic quantum many-particle theory and condensed matter physics, are at the core of this book.
The book provides a technical account of the basic physics of those nanostructures that are the foundation of the hardware of all manner of computers. It will be read by semiconductor physicists and electronic engineers and advanced research students world-wide.
