Physical

Eine Unterteilung des 1. Bandes dieses Handbuches battle aus mehreren Grunden erforderlich. Die Fiille des fabrics hatte nur einen Band zu umfangreich gemacht. Noch wichtiger ist aber die Tatsache, daB zum Thema "Physik und Technik" sehr heterogene Kapitel gehOren. Bei einem Teil des zu bearbeitenden Stoffes ist heute, wenigstens aus medizinischer Sicht, bereits ein gewisser AbschluB erreicht. Andere Ge biete sind aber noch so sehr in geradezu stiirmischer Weiterentwicklung, daB ihre "ab schlieBende handbuchmaBige" Bearbeitung nicht und wahrscheinlich sogar nie moglich ist. Aus diesem Grunde wurden die vorwiegend "technologischen" Kapitel iiber die Er zeugung von Rontgenstrahlen, iiber Elektronenbeschleuniger und Erzeuger ultraharter Strahlungen sowie iiber die Gerate fiir die Anwendung ionisierender Strahlen in einem Teilband zusammengefaBt. Den Verfassern dieser Kapitel (JENSEN; BERGER u. WACHSMANN; BISCHOFF u. GELLINEK) schulden wir besonderen Dank; ihre Aufgabe battle namlich schwer. Fiir dieses Handbuch kam es darauf an, aus dem ungeheuren Spektrum der Apparate-, Rohren- und Gerateentwicklung das Wesentliche, d.h. die Grundprinzipien heraus zuarbeiten und markante Beispiele fiir deren praktische Verwirklichung darzustellen. Diese Kapitel diirften keinesfalls ausschlieBlich zu einem "Katalog" derzeit gebrauch licher Apparate oder Gerate werden. Wir glauben, daB die Autoren diese schwierige gelOst haben. Aufgabe bestens H. VIETEN Diisseldorf, Friihjahr 1965 Preface A subdivision of the 1st quantity of this guide was once precious for numerous purposes.

Download E-books Absolute Age Determination: Physical and Chemical Dating Methods and Their Application PDF

Physical

By Prof. Dr. Mebus A. Geyh, Prof. Dr. Helmut Schleicher (auth.)

With the growing to be acceptance over the last centuries that the Earth has an important age and approaches over lengthy classes of time have replaced the morphology and composition of the Earth's crust, geologists became more and more drawn to choice of absolute a long time. A rela­ tive geochronology was once demonstrated at the foundation of the lithostratigraphic and biostratigraphic ideas built over the past century. With the invention of radioactivity, the root for a brand new geoscientific self-discipline - geochronology - used to be proven (Rutherford 1906). it's the research of geological time, dependent quite often at the time signatures supplied through the isotopic composition in geologic fabrics. The isotopic signature in a rock yields additional info than that supplied by way of the geochemical signature by myself since it displays the beginning and heritage of the aspect within the rock. the purpose of geochronology is to calibrate and standardize chronostrati­ photograph scales, to strengthen geological time scales that experience a delicate or at the very least helpful solution in an effort to position the geological occasions within the right chronological order, and to assign their right time spans. In perform, the appliance of geochronology is way wider as the facts within the "natural data" usually supply details at the foundation, genesis, and heritage of the fabrics. This, in fact, calls for an realizing of the geochemical habit of the components involved.
