Engineering and Scientific Manuscripts with Microsoft Word 2019

B07JFCYRK5

www.amazon.com/author/popmintchev

Create, edit and publish scientific manuscripts with less efforts using Word 2019. This tutorial will guide you through the process of a book formatting till it is ready for publishing. Important topics are visualized in pictures.

The book is compiled as a practical guide for fast creation and formatting of manuscripts that are heavy on math, numbered equations, figures, tables of contents, indices, containing self-referenced links, etc. These aspects are usually encountered writing books, scientific books, dissertations, papers, proposals, papers for a class, etc. Such formatting style likewise, can be followed for self-publishing of scientific or fiction, electronic or print books. Microsoft Word 365 is a web-based application of the current version of Word that is accessed through internet.

While this tutorial covers topics on Word 365 at this moment, Word 365 is being updated frequently and some features may differ at a later time. The tutorial is also available for previous versions of Word: Word 2016, Word 2013, Word 2010, Word 2007.

Near- and Extended-Edge X-Ray-Absorption Fine-Structure Spectroscopy Using Ultrafast Coherent High-Order Harmonic Supercontinua.

Phys Rev Lett 2018 Mar;120(9):093002

JILA, University of Colorado at Boulder, Boulder, Colorado 80309-0440, USA.

Recent advances in high-order harmonic generation have made it possible to use a tabletop-scale setup to produce spatially and temporally coherent beams of light with bandwidth spanning 12 octaves, from the ultraviolet up to x-ray photon energies >1.6 keV.

Here we demonstrate the use of this light for x-ray-absorption spectroscopy at the K- and L-absorption edges of solids at photon energies near 1 keV. We also report x-ray-absorption spectroscopy in the water window spectral region (284-543 eV) using a high flux high-order harmonic generation x-ray supercontinuum with 10^9 photons/s in 1% bandwidth, 3 orders of magnitude larger than has previously been possible using tabletop sources.

Since this x-ray radiation emerges as a single attosecond-to-femtosecond pulse with peak brightness exceeding 10^26 photons/s/mrad^{2}/mm^2/1% bandwidth, these novel coherent x-ray sources are ideal for probing the fastest molecular and materials processes on femtosecond-to-attosecond time scales and picometer length scales.

Introduction to Design of Optical Systems

B0745DHW23

https://www.amazon.com/-/e/B0745DHW23

This textbook is devoted to the fundamentals of optical system design and analysis. It is part of series on applied optics covering the math and theory of the Optical phenomena.

The book starts with short overview of the wave optics and transitions to the theory of geometric optics and its limitations. Only basic Fourier optics is covered that relate to the applications and design of optical and imaging systems. The third chapter covers concepts of simple imaging systems. The last fourth chapter, discusses the theory of third order aberrations.

The text is more appropriate for researchers, grad students, undergrad students, with interests in the realm of Optics. The content is presented in language that is accessible for large audience, however, calculus is highly recommended as it goes in depth discussing the topics.

The book does not cover the use of specific raytracing software for optimization.

Ultraviolet surprise: Efficient soft x-ray high-harmonic generation in multiply ionized plasmas.

Science 2015 Dec 3;350(6265):1225-31. Epub 2015 Dec 3.

JILA, University of Colorado, Boulder, CO 80309, USA.

High-harmonic generation is a universal response of matter to strong femtosecond laser fields, coherently upconverting light to much shorter wavelengths. Optimizing the conversion of laser light into soft x-rays typically demands a trade-off between two competing factors. Because of reduced quantum diffusion of the radiating electron wave function, the emission from each species is highest when a short-wavelength ultraviolet driving laser is used. However, phase matching--the constructive addition of x-ray waves from a large number of atoms--favors longer-wavelength mid-infrared lasers. We identified a regime of high-harmonic generation driven by 40-cycle ultraviolet lasers in waveguides that can generate bright beams in the soft x-ray region of the spectrum, up to photon energies of 280 electron volts. Surprisingly, the high ultraviolet refractive indices of both neutral atoms and ions enabled effective phase matching, even in a multiply ionized plasma. We observed harmonics with very narrow linewidths, while calculations show that the x-rays emerge as nearly time-bandwidth-limited pulse trains of ~100 attoseconds.
