Item description for The Quantum World Unveiled by Electron Waves by Akira Tonomura...

This book emphasizes the experimental aspects of the author's own laboratory. Instead of merely presenting a dry collection of knowledge, the author unfolds to the reader his vivid experiences of enthusiasm, sheer pleasure, and yet frustrations in the course of his own research. In this way, the book aims to arouse the reader's curiosity in the strange behaviours of electrons in the microscopic world, which differ significantly from our common sense and daily experiences of the macroscopic world. The fields of physics explored in the book are quantum mechanics, superconductivity, electron microscopy, holography, magnetism and unified theory - areas of the author's study using electron waves.

Promise Angels is dedicated to bringing you great books at great prices. Whether you read for entertainment, to learn, or for literacy - you will find what you want at!

Reviews - What do customers think about The Quantum World Unveiled by Electron Waves?

A masterpiece of scientific writing describing beautiful experiments  Dec 9, 2005
This is a wonderful book clearly describing beautiful experiments. This masterpiece of scientific writing describes fundamental phenomena in quantum mechanics, while avoiding technical jargon.

In the process of developing holography electron microscope technology, Dr. Tonomura's group has successfully visualized a number of striking quantum phenomena. The "double-slit experiment with electrons" is a classic experiment described now even in first year physics textbooks. The definite proof of the Aharonov-Bohm effect is also clearly described in this enjoyable book. Moreover, the visualization of the spatio-temporal dynamics of vortices in superconductors is also presented with clarity and sufficient details. These are all experiments pioneered in the author's laboratory.

The over-arching theme of the author, and this book, is the ability to actually see the quantum phenomena occurring at the nanoscale. This abaility is allowing an unprecedented level of understanding of quantum phenomena. Readers will be delighted with this book. It is a gem. The illustrations are illuminating and beautiful (enjoyed even by my very young daughter). This is a strongly recommended book for anyone interested in quantum mechanics.
