Note Editore

There is a definite need for an up-to-date book on the physics of relatively cold plasma. Much has been written about very hot plasmas because of the interest in fusion, and there is a general recognition of the importance of low temperature plasma due to the ever growing significance in the plasma processing of materials, plasma chemistry, and other atmospheric and environmental applications. A comprehensive and easy accessible work for the study of the physics of ionized gases, based on the 2001 edition "Physics of Ionized Gases". There has been a considerable amount of re-arranging of the subject matter within each topic, as well as some significant additions. Many of these additions relate to the subject of clusters which have become an active area of research since the publication of the earlier volume. Other sections that are enlarged include the subject of plasmas in the atmosphere. By re-arranging some chapters the book received a more coherent structure. It is well organized and easy accessible. One can enter the book at any point without the necessity for substantial preparatory reading of earlier parts. The focus remains on fundamentals rather than on the details required for interesting but difficult applications such as magnetic confinement fusion, or the phenomena that occur with extremely high-intensity short-pulse lasers. The proposed additions to the previous edition enhance the value of the book. In particular, the additional broader coverage of atmospheric-pressure plasmas and their applications is very timely and pays tribute to the fact that this is a rapidly growing field of plasma science and plasma technology. Most of the recent developments in the field are adequately covered. The information and data found in the proposed appendices is of great importance and relevance and is not easily fund in other books. In all cases, the emphasis is on a clear and unified understanding of the basic physics that underlies all plasma phenomena. Thus, there are chapters on plasma behavior from the viewpoint of atomic and molecular physics, as well as on the macroscopic phenomena involved in physical kinetics of plasmas and the transport of radiation and of charged particles within plasmas. With this grounding in the fundamental physics of plasmas, the notoriously difficult subjects of nonlinear phenomena and of instabilities in plasmas are then treated with comprehensive clarity. * Starts from general concepts of physics of a low temperature plasma and related physical problems * Presents parameters of various plasmas and their applications * Studies statistics and thermodynamics of ionized and excited gases, elementary processes, physical kinetics and transport phenomena in plasmas * Reflects on interaction of radiation with plasmas and excited gases, the behavior of a plasma in external fieds, and interaction of a plasma with surfaces * Analysis of plasma oscillations, instabilities and nonlinear phenomena in a plasma * Presents explicit examples of a certain plasma, as the atmospheric plasma and gas discharge plasma * Includes computer simulation codes including atomic-molecular physics A valued reading for graduate and PhD students in physics and as a reference book among researchers in low-temperature ionized gases-plasma processing, edge region fusion plasma physics, atmospheric plasmas. The readership of this book will be largely similar to that of "Physics of Ionized Gases" which had been published in 2001, but will also include some plasma practitioners who probably would not have been attracted to the earlier edition. This is a fast growing group, particularly with China and India getting into the field of plasma science and technology rapidly and in large numbers.




Sommario

A comprehensive and readily accessible work for studying the physics of ionized gases, based on "Physics of Ionized Gases". The focus remains on fundamentals rather than on the details required for interesting but difficult applications, such as magnetic confinement fusion, or the phenomena that occur with extremely high-intensity short-pulse lasers. However, this new work benefits from much rearranging of the subject matter within each topic, resulting in a more coherent structure. There are also some significant additions, many of which relate to clusters, while other enlarged sections include plasmas in the atmosphere and their applications. In each case, the emphasis is on a clear and unified understanding of the basic physics that underlies all plasma phenomena. Thus, there are chapters on plasma behavior from the viewpoint of atomic and molecular physics, as well as on the macroscopic phenomena involved in physical kinetics of plasmas and the transport of radiation and of charged particles within plasmas. With this grounding in the fundamental physics of plasmas, the notoriously difficult subjects of nonlinear phenomena and of instabilities in plasmas can then be treated with comprehensive clarity. The work is rounded off with appendices containing information and data of great importance and relevance that are not easily found in other books. Valuable reading for graduate and PhD physics students, and a reference for researchers in low-temperature ionized gases-plasma processing, edge region fusion plasma physics, and atmospheric plasmas.
