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>
This volume presents a comprehensive and up-to-date overview of major developments in the study of how phraseology is used in a wide range of different legal and institutional contexts
Phraseology is becoming increasingly important in a wide range of fields. This recent interest has mainly been sparked by the development of corpus linguistics research. Yet, there have been relatively few empirical studies of word combinations in the domain of law and in the many different contexts where legal discourse is used. This book seeks to address this gap by presenting some of the latest developments in the study of this linguistic phenomenon from a corpus-based perspective. The volume draws on current research in legal phraseology from a variety of perspectives: translation, comparative/contrastive studies, terminology, lexicography, discourse analysis and forensic linguistics. It contains contributions from leading experts in the field, focusing on a wide range of issues amply illustrated through in-depth corpus-informed analyses and case studies. Most contributions to this book are multilingual, featuring different legal systems and legal languages.
The volume will be a valuable resource for linguists interested in phraseology as well as lawyers and legal scholars, translators, lexicographers, terminologists and students who wish to pursue research in the area.
A comprehensive resource for successfully treating male clients In two exhaustive volumes, The New Handbook of Psychotherapy and Counseling with Men offers clinicians a much-needed guide that includes the most current research, theory, effective techniques, and strategies for treating men (no matter what their background or age) in a wide variety of situations--from on-the-job to in-the-cell block. Written by a comprehensive list of clinicians, educators, and researchers with vast experience in the field, this definitive handbook offers insightful advice for working with male clients who are often stubbornly resisting to therapy. "The New Handbook is authoritative, illuminating, and clinically compelling; indeed, it is the new standard for any mental health professional treating boys and men. Absorb it, cherish it, and most of all, use it!" --John C. Norcross, professor of psychology, University of Scranton, and president, APA Division of Psychotherapy Contributors to The Handbook of Psychotherapy and Counseling with Men include: Michael Andronico Gary R.
