Because of the rapid increase in commercially available Fourier transform infrared spectrometers and computers over the past ten years, it has now become feasible to use IR spectrometry to characterize very thin films at extended interfaces. At the same time, interest in thin films has grown tremendously because of applications in microelectronics, sensors, catalysis, and nanotechnology. The Handbook of Infrared Spectroscopy of Ultrathin Films provides a practical guide to experimental methods, up-to-date theory, and considerable reference data, critical for scientists who want to measure and interpret IR spectra of ultrathin films. This authoritative volume also: Offers information needed to effectively apply IR spectroscopy to the analysis and evaluation of thin and ultrathin films on flat and rough surfaces and on powders at solid-gaseous, solid-liquid, liquid-gaseous, liquid-liquid, and solid-solid interfaces. <ul><li>Provides full discussion of theory underlying techniques <li>Describes experimental methods in detail, including optimum conditions for recording spectra and the interpretation of spectra <li>Gives detailed information on equipment, accessories, and techniques <li>Provides IR spectroscopic data tables as appendixes, including the first compilation of published data on longitudinal frequencies of different substances <li>Covers new approaches, such as Surface Enhanced IR spectroscopy (SEIR), time-resolved FTIR spectroscopy, high-resolution microspectroscopy and using synchotron radiation</ul>
From prolific Irish artist, Mary Murphy, comes a stunning Irish language picture book that will evoke lots of giggles, gurgles and smiles - not to mention kisses - from little babies! Prestigious poet and translator, Gabriel Rosenstock, captures in Irish all the fun, fizz and warmth of Mary Murphy's picture book words in this young, interactive title all about...kissing! Did you know that a giraffe kiss is gentle and tall...like this! *Mwaaaah!* Then there are kisses that are quick and small...others are fizzy and bubbly...some are even long and tooty-tooty! There are SO many different types of kisses, just turn the page to see! This split-page book, with its cast of loveable, cuddly-looking parent-and-child animals is the perfect gift for a new baby or a young family who wish to encourage a love of the Irish language in their child. Pog Mar Seo will be the ninth title translated into Irish for the Walker Eireann list, an initiative which celebrates Walker Book's Irish writers and illustrators, creating perfect books for children. It is a standout, young novelty book with split-pages throughout and a stunning finale spread with glitter foil across the page. Walker Eireann - leabhair le laimhseail go gramhar, i dteanga do chroi.
Mineral supplements are receiving a great deal of attention and experiencing a tremendous period of growth. Despite their popularity, questions continue to arise regarding the research behind their claims, the efficacy of different forms, and their overall safety. It is critical for the health care community and the general public to have an unbiased source of authoritative information.
