Astronomers have been traditionally the custodians of time, however the discovery that the interval of Earth's rotation isn't consistent intended that they had to think again their uncomplicated devices. On a separate course, physicists built atomic clocks and held out the possibility of a timekeeping procedure rooted in actual constants.

Vacuum ultraviolet spectroscopy

This quantity is for practitioners, experimentalists, and graduate scholars in utilized physics, really within the fields of atomic and molecular physics, who paintings with vacuum ultraviolet purposes and are short of picking the easiest kind of glossy instrumentation. It offers first-hand wisdom of the cutting-edge gear resources and offers technical details on how one can use it, besides a wide reference bibliography.
