Physics: Reference Resources
This guide was created by your librarian to help you get started on your physics research
Because of COVID-19, Payson LIbrary is closed and so print resources cannot be acquired currently. If a print resource here looks helpful to you, please contact Erin McAllister (firstname.lastname@example.org), and I will help you find what you need.
In a world with access to unlimited amounts of data, how can users who need to make critical scientific and technical decisions find high quality, reliable data? Today, more than ever, the CRC Handbook of Chemistry and Physics remains a hallmark of quality. For over 100 years, the Handbook has provided property data on chemical compounds (now over 20,000) and all physical particles that have been reported in the literature, carefully reviewed by subject experts. Every year older collections are updated with the latest values and new areas will be added as science progresses.
This is a 24 volume set that covers all relevant fields in physics, in particular optics, laser physics, solids, semiconductor, atom and nuclear physics, biophysics as well as all the neighboring fields of physics and engineering.
Covers terminology and techniques in physics, including atomic trapping and cooling, biophotonics, econophysics, the formation of stars and planets, quantum communication, space science and technology, and traffic flow.
The Oxford Guide to the History of Physics and Astronomy traces the evolution of these bodies of knowledge as well as planetary science from the Renaissance to the beginning of the twenty-first century.
Quick reference answers from more over 2 million entries in more than 242 dictionaries and reference titles on subjects such as language, science, medicine, humanities, social science and business, plus the Oxford Essential Quotations and selected titles from the Oxford Companion series.
