About this book

This book is a research monograph summarizing recent advances related to the molecular structure of water and ice, and it is based on the latest spectroscopic data available. A special focus is given to radio- and microwave frequency regions. Within the five interconnected chapters, the author reviews the electromagnetic waves interaction with water, ice, and moist substances, discussing the microscopic mechanisms behind the dielectric responses. Well-established classic views concerning the structure of water and ice are considered along with new approaches related to atomic and molecular dynamics. Particular attention is given to nanofluidics, atmospheric science, and electrochemistry. The mathematical apparatus, based on diverse approaches employed in condensed matter physics, is widely used and allows the reader to quantitatively describe the electrodynamic response of water and ice in both bulk and confined states. This book is intended for a wide audience covering physicists, electrochemists, geophysicists, engineers, biophysicists, and general scientists who work on the electromagnetic radiation interaction with water and moist substances.

About the authors

Vasily Artemov studied physics at the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology, one of the leading universities in Russia. He received his Ph.D. from the Prokhorov General Physics Institute (GPI), founded by Alexander Prokhorov (Nobel laureate for his research on lasers and masers). Both his master and Ph.D. theses were focused on infrared and dielectric spectroscopy of bulk and confined water. He has held several internships abroad, where he studied the interaction of electromagnetic waves with soft matter. After these experiences, he headed the lab of intermolecular interaction spectroscopy at GPI, where he worked intensively on the dielectric responses of water and ice as well as on the important role of local chemical reactions between solute and solvent in aqueous solutions of electrolytes. Several years ago, he joined the Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology, the first private international university in Russia, where he currently leads research activities in the field of broadband dielectric spectroscopy of aqueous materials for electrochemical applications. His publication record encompasses over 40 scientific papers in international journals on the dielectric and transport properties of water and ice.
