This book addresses all the open questions and issues which need to be resolved before perpendicular recording can finally be implemented successfully, and is the first monograph in many years to address this subject.
This book is intended for graduate students, young engineers and even senior and more experienced researchers in this field who need to acquire adequate knowledge of the physics of perpendicular magnetic recording in order to further develop the field of perpendicular recording.
Features a chapter authored by renowned radiation authority Lawrence T. Clark on Radiation Hardened by Design SRAM Strategies for TID and SEE Mitigation
This book analyzes the radiation problem, focusing on the most important aspects required for comprehending the degrading effects observed in semiconductor devices, circuits, and systems when they are irradiated. It explores how radiation interacts with solid materials, providing a detailed analysis of three ways this occurs: Photoelectric effect, Compton effect, and creation of electron-positron pairs. The author explains that the probability of these three effects occurring depends on the energy of the incident photon and the atomic number of the target. The book also discusses the effects that photons can have on matter—in terms of ionization effects and nuclear displacement
Written for post-graduate researchers, semiconductor engineers, and nuclear and space engineers with some electronics background, this carefully constructed reference explains how ionizing radiation is creating damage in semiconducting devices and circuits and systems—and how that damage can be avoided in areas such as military/space missions, nuclear applications, plasma damage, and X-ray-based techniques. It features top-notch international experts in industry and academia who address emerging detector technologies, circuit design techniques, new materials, and innovative system approaches.
This book presents comprehensive coverage of all the basic concepts in electrical engineering. It is designed for undergraduate students of almost all branches of engineering for an introductory course in essentials of electrical engineering.
This book explains in detail the properties of different electric circuit elements, such as resistors, inductors and capacitors. The fundamental concepts of dc circuit laws, such as Kirchhoff’s current and voltage laws, and various network theorems, such as Thevenin’s theorem, Norton’s theorem, superposition theorem, maximum power transfer theorem, reciprocity theorem and Millman’s theorem are thoroughly discussed. The book also presents the analysis of ac circuits, and discusses transient analysis due to switch operations in ac and dc circuits as well as analysis of three-phase circuits. It describes series and parallel RLC circuits, magnetic circuits, and the working principle of different kinds of transformers. In addition, the book explains the principle of energy conversion, the operating characteristics of dc machines, three-phase induction machines and synchronous machines as well as single-phase motors. Finally, the book includes a discussion on technologies of electric power generation along with the different types of energy sources.
