Title:Fundamentals of Fluorescence Microscopy [electronic resource] : Exploring Life with Light
Author(s): Partha Pratim Mondal
Alberto Diaspro
Date:2014
Publisher:Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This book starts at an introductory level and leads reader to the most advanced developments in fluorescence imaging and super-resolution techniques that have enabled the emergence of new disciplines such as nanobioimaging,multiphoton microscopy, pho todynamic therapy, nanometrology and nanosensors. The interdisciplinary subject of fluorescence microscopy and imaging requires complete knowledge of imaging optics and molecular physics. So, this bookapproaches the subject by introducing optical imaging concepts before going deep into the advanced imaging systems and their applications. Molecular orbital theory forms the basis for understanding fluorescent molecules and therebyfacilitates complete explanation of light-matter interaction at the geometrica l focus. The two disciplines have some overlap since light controls the states of molecules and conversely, molecular states control the emitted light. Thesetwo mechanisms together determine essential fluorescence factors and phenomena such as, molecular cross-section, Stokes shift, emission and absorption spectra, quantum yield, signal-to-noise ratio, Forster resonance energy transfer(FRET), fluorescence recovery after photobleaching (FRAP) and fluorescence lifetime. These phenomena form the basis of man y fluorescence based devices. The book is organized into two parts. The first part deals with basics of imagingoptics and its applications. The advanced part covers many imaging techniques and related instrumentation that are developed in the last decade pointing towards far-field diffraction limited and unlimited imaging

Title:Neuromathematics of Vision [electronic resource]
Author(s): Giovanna Citti
Alessandro Sarti
Date:2014
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This book is devoted to the study of the functional architecture of the visual cortex. Its geometrical structure is the differential geometry of the connectivity between neural cells. This connectivity is building and shapingthe hidden brain structur es underlying visual perception. The story of the problem runs over the last 30 years, since the discovery of Hubel and Wiesel of the modular structure of the primary visual cortex, and slowly cams towards atheoretical understanding of the experimental da ta on what we now know as functional architecture of the primary visual cortex. Experimental data comes from several domains: neurophysiology, phenomenology of perception andneurocognitive imaging. Imaging techniques like functional MRI and diffusion tens or MRI allow to deepen the study of cortical structures. Due to this variety of experimental data, neuromathematematics deals with modelling bothcortical structures and perceptual spaces. From the mathematical point of view, neuromathematical call for new instruments of pure mathematics: sub-Riemannian geometry models horizontal connectivity, harmonic analysis in noncommutative groups allows to understand pinwheels structure, as well as non-linear dimensionality reduction is at the base of many neural mor phologies and possibly of the emergence of perceptual units. But at the center of theneurogeometry is the problem of harmonizing contemporary mathematical instruments with neurophysiological findings and phenomenological experiments in an unitary science of vision. The contributions to this book come from the veryfounders of the discipline

Title:Probing Correlated Quantum Many-Body Systems at the Single-Particle Level [electronic resource]
Author(s): Manuel Endres
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:How much knowledge can we gain about a physical system and to what degree can we control it? In quantum optical systems, such as ion traps or neutral atoms in cavities, single particles and their correlations can now be probed ina way that is fundame ntally limited only by the laws of quantum mechanics. In contrast, quantum many-body systems pose entirely new challenges due to the enormous number of microscopic parameters and their small length- and shorttime-scales. This thesis describes a new approa ch to probing quantum many-body systems at the level of individual particles: Using high-resolution, single-particle-resolved imaging and manipulation of strongly correlated atoms, singleatoms can be detected and manipulated due to the large length and ti me-scales and the precise control of internal degrees of freedom. Such techniques lay stepping stones for the experimental exploration of new quantum many-bodyphenomena and applications thereof, such as quantum simulation and quantum information, through the design of systems at the microscopic scale and the measurement of previously inaccessible observables

Title:Towards Autonomous Soft Matter Systems [electronic resource] : Experiments on Membranes and Active Emulsions
Author(s): Shashi Thutupalli
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This book focuses on the assembly, organization and resultant collective dynamics of soft matter systems maintained away from equilibrium byan energy flux. Living matter is the ultimate example of such systems, which arecomprised of different constit uents on very different scales (ions, nucleic acids, proteins, cells). The result of their diverse interactions, maintained using the energy from physiological processes, is a fantastically well-organizedand dynamic whole. This work describes results from minimal, biomimetic systems and primarily investigates membranes and active emulsions, as well as key aspects of both soft matter and non-equilibrium phenomena. It isshown thatthese minimal reconstitutions are already capable of a range of complex behavi our such as nonlinear electric responses, chemical communication and locomotion. These studies will bring us closer to a fundamental understanding of complexsystems by reconstituting key aspects of their form and function in simple model systems. Further, they may also serve as the first technological steps towards artificial soft functional matter

Title:Handbook of Nano-Optics and Nanophotonics [electronic resource]
Author(s): Motoichi Ohtsu
Date:2013
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:In the 1990s, optical technology and photonics industry developed fast, but further progress became difficult due to a fundamental limit of light known as the diffraction limit. This limit could be overcome using the noveltechnology of nano-optics or nanophotonics in which the size of the electromagnetic field is decreased down to the nanoscale and is used as a carrier for signal transmission, processing, and fabrication. Such a decrease beyond thediffraction limit is possible by using optical near-f ields. The true nature of nano-optics and nanophotonics involves not only their abilities to meet the above requirements but also their abilities to realize qualitative innovationsin photonic devices, fabrication techniques, energy conversion and informat ion processing systems. The objective of this work is to review the innovations of optical science and technology by nano-optics and nanophotonics. While inconventional optical science and technology, light and matter are discussed separately, in nano-opt ics and nanophotonics, light and matter have to be regarded as being coupled to each other, and the energy flow between nanoparticles isbidirectional. This means that nano-optics and nanophotonics have to be regarded as a technology fusing optical fields and matter. This unique work reviews and covers the most recent topics of nano-optics, applications to deviceoperations, fabrication techniques, energy conversion, information processing, architectures and algorithms. Each chapter is written by the leadin g scientists in the relevant field. Thus, this work will provide high-quality scientificand technical information to scientists, engineers, and graduate students who are and will be engaged in R&D of nano-optics and nanophotonics. Especially, the topics t o be covered by this work will be popularly used by the engineers inthe rapidly growing market of the optical energy conversion

Note:New Perspectives in Partial Least Squares and Related Methodsshares original, peer-reviewed research from presentations during the 2012 partial least squares methods meeting (PLS 2012). This was the 7th meeting in the series ofPLS conferences and the first to take place in the USA. PLS is an abbreviation for Partial Least Squares and is also sometimes expanded asprojection to latent structures. This is an approach for modeling relations between datamatrices of different types of variables measured on the same set of objects. The twenty-two papers in this volume, which include three invited contributions from our keynote speakers, provide a comprehensive overview of the currentstate of the most advanced research related to PLS and related methods. Pro minent scientists from around the world took part in PLS 2012 and their contributions covered the multiple dimensions of the partial least squares-basedmethods. These exciting theoretical developments ranged frompartial least squaresregression and correla tion, component based path modelingto regularized regression and subspace visualization. In following the tradition of the sixprevious PLS meetings, these contributions also included a large variety of PLS approaches such as PLS metamodels, variable selec tion, sparse PLS regression, distance based PLS, significance vs. reliability, and non-linear PLS.Finally, these contributions applied PLS methods to data originating from the traditional econometric/economic data to genomics data, brain images, informati on systems, epidemiology, and chemical spectroscopy. Such a broad andcomprehensive volume will also encourage new uses of PLS models in work by researchers and students in many fields

Note:At the intersection of mathematics, engineering, and computer science sits the thriving field of compressive sensing. Based on the premise that data acquisition and compression can be performed simultaneously, compressive sensingfinds applications in imaging, signal processing, and many other domains. In the areas of applied mathematics, electrical engineering, and theoretical computer science, an explosion of research activity has already followed thetheoretical results that highlighted the efficien cy of the basic principles. The elegant ideas behind these principles are also of independent interest to pure mathematicians. A Mathematical Introduction to Compressive Sensing gives adetailed account of the core theory upon which the field is build. Key features include: The first textbook completely devoted to the topic of compressive sensing Comprehensive treatment of thesubject, including background material from probability theory, detailed proofs of the main theorems, and an outline of possible a pplications Numerous exercises designed to help students understand the material An extensive bibliography with over 500 references that guide researchers through the literature With only moderate prerequisites, A Mathematical Introduction to Compressive Sensing is an excellent textbook forgraduate courses in mathematics, engineering, and computer science.

Note:Central to this thesis is the characterisation and exploitation of electromagnetic properties of light in imaging and measurement systems. To this end an information theoretic approach is used to formulate a hitherto lacking,quantitative definition o f polarisation resolution, and to establish fundamental precision limits in electromagnetic systems. Furthermore rigorous modelling tools are developed for propagation of arbitrary electromagnetic fields,including for example stochastic fields exhibiting properties such as partial polarisation, through high numerical aperture optics. Finally these ideas are applied to the development, characterisation and optimisation of a number oftopical optical systems: polarisation imaging multiplexed optical data sto rage and single molecule measurements. The work has implications for all optical imaging systems where polarisation of light is of concern

Note:Over the last 20 years, multiscale methods and wavelets have revolutionized the field of applied mathematics by providing efficient means for encoding isotropic phenomena. Directional multiscale systems, particularly shearlets,are currently having th e same dramatic impact on the encoding of multivariate signals, which are usually dominated by anisotropic features. Since its introduction about six years ago, the theory of shearlets has rapidly developed andgained wide recognition as the superior appro ach for multiscale analysis of multivariate signals, providing a truly unified treatment of both the continuum and the digital setting. By now, this research field has reached full maturity,with deep mathematical results, efficient numerical methods, and a variety of high-impact applications. Edited by the topic's two main pioneers, this volume systematically surveys the theory and applications of shearlets. Following ageneral survey of the subject, carefully selected contributions explore the current sta te of the field in greater detail. Specific areas covered include: * analysis of anisotropic features * sparse approximations of multivariatedata * shearlet smoothness spaces * numerical implementations * applications toimage processing. Shearlets is aime d at graduate students and researchers in the areas of applied mathematics, computer science, engineering, andany other field dealing with the development and applications of highly efficient methodologies for processing multivariate data. As the first mo nograph in the literature to survey shearlets, this volume offers both a uniquestate-of-the-art resource for scientists dealing with advanced multiscale methods and a supplemental textbook for graduate courses in applied harmonic analysis

Note:Confocal Raman Microscopy is a relatively new technique that allows chemical imaging without specific sample preparation. By integrating a sensitive Raman spectrometer within a state-of-the-art microscope, Raman microscopy with aspatial resolution do wn to 200nm laterally and 500nm vertically can be achieved using visible light excitation. Recent developments in detector and computer technology as well as optimized instrument design have reduced integrationtimes of Raman spectra by orders of magnitude , so that complete images consisting of tens of thousands of Raman spectra can be acquired in seconds or minutes rather than hours, which used to be standard just one decade ago. The purposeof this book is to provide the reader a comprehensive overview of the rapidly developing field of Confocal Raman Microscopy and its applications

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Terahertz science and technology is attracting great interest due to its application in a wide array of fields made possible by the development of new and improved terahertz radiation sources and detectors. This book focuses onthe development and cha racterization of one such source - namely the semi-large aperture photoconducting (PC) antenna fabricated on Fe-doped bulk Ga0.69In0.31As substrate. The high ultrafast carrier mobility, high resistivity, andsubpicosecond carrier lifetime along with low ba ndgap make Ga0.69In0.31As an excellent candidate for PC antenna based THz emitter that can be photoexcited by compact Yb-based multiwatt laser systems for high power THz emission. Theresearch is aimed at evaluating the impact of physical properties of a s emi-large aperture Ga0.69In0.31As PC antenna upon its THz generation efficiency, and is motivated by the ultimate goal of developing a high-power terahertzradiation source for time-domain terahertz spectroscopy and imaging systems.

Myriad research and survey papers and monographs have beenpublished on the subjec t, documenting different areas of applications such as sound and image processing, denoising, data compression, tomography, and medical imaging. The study of wavelets remains a very active field of research, andmany of its central techniques and ideas hav e evolved into new and promising research areas. This volume, a collection of invited contributions developed from talks at an international conference on wavelets, features expository andresearch articles covering current and emerging areas in the theory and applications of wavelets. The book is divided into three parts: Part I is devoted to the mathematical theory of wavelets and features several papers on waveletsets and the construction of wavelet bases in different settings. Part II looks at the use of multiscale harmonic analysis for understanding the geometry of large data sets and extracting information from them. Part III focuses onapplications of wavelet theory to the study of several real-world problems. Specific topics covered include: wavelet s on locally compact groups and Riemannian manifolds crystallographic composite dilation wavelets, quincunx andvector-valued wavelets multiscale analysis of large data sets geometric wavelets wavelets applications in cosmology, atmospheric data analysis a nd denoising speech signals.

Note:This book presents a concise overview of current research on the biophysics of DNA-protein interactions. A wide range of new and classical methods are presented by authors investigating physical mechanisms by which proteinsinteract with DNA. For exam ple, several chapters address the mechanisms by which proteins search for and recognize specific binding sites on DNA, a process critical for cellular function. Single molecule methods such as forcespectroscopy as well as fluorescence imaging and tracking are described in these chapters as well as other parts of the book that address the dynamics of protein-DNA interactions. Other important topics include the mechanisms by whichproteins engage DNA sequences and/or alter DNA structure. These simple but imp ortant model interactions are then placed in the broader biological context with discussion of larger protein-DNA complexes . Topics include replicationforks, recombination complexes, DNA repair interactions, and ultimately, methods to understand the chro matin context of the cell nucleus. This book will be of interest to readers who wish to explore current biophysical approaches toDNA-protein interactions across multiple levels of biological complexity

Note:The discovery of extrasolar planets over the past decade has had major impacts on our understanding of the formation and dynamical evolution of planetary systems. There are features and characteristics unseen in our solar systemand unexplainable by t he current theories of planet formation and dynamics. Among these new surprises is the discovery of planets in binary and multiple-star systems. The discovery of such binary-planetary systems has confrontedastrodynamicists with many new challenges, and ha s led them to re-examine the theories of planet formation and dynamics. Among these challenges are: How are planets formed in binary star systems? What would be the notion ofhabitability in such systems? Under what conditions can binary star systems have habitable planets? How will volatiles necessary for life appear on such planets? This volume seeks to gather the current research in the area of planetsin binary and multistar systems and to familiarize readers with its associated theoretical and observat ional challenges

Note:Complex plasmas differ from traditional plasmas in many ways: these are low-temperature high pressure systems containing nanometer to micrometer size particles which may be highly charged and strongly interacting. The particlesmay be chemically react ing or be in contact with solid surfaces, and the electrons may show quantum behaviour. These interesting properties have led to many applications of complex plasmas in technology, medicine and science. Yetcomplex plasmas are extremely complicated, both e xperimentally and theoretically, and require a variety of new approaches which go beyond standard plasma physics courses. This book fills this gap presenting an introduction to theory,experiment and computer simulation in this field. Based on tutorial lec tures at a very successful recent Summer Institute, the presentation is ideally suited for graduate students, plasma physicists and experienced undergraduates

Note:This book describes the basic principles of laser refractography, a flexible new diagnostic tool for measuring optically inhomogeneous media and flows. Laser refractography is based on digital imaging and computer processing ofstructured laser beam r efraction (SLR) in inhomogeneous transparent media. Laser refractograms provide both qualitative and quantitative measurements and can be used for the study of fast and transient processes. In this book, thetheoretical basis of refractography is explored in some detail, and experimental setups are described for measurement of transparent media using either 2D (passed radiation) or 3D (scattered radiation) refractograms. Specific examplesand applications are discussed, including visualization of the bounda ry layer near a hot or cold metallic ball in water, and observation of edge effects and microlayers in liquids and gases. As the first book to describe this new andexciting technique, this monograph has broad cross-disciplinary appeal and will be of inter est to students and researchers who need to characterize complex fluid behavior

Title:The Physics of Proteins [electronic resource] An Introduction to Biological Physics and Molecular Biophysics

Note:Physics and the life sciences have established new connections within the past few decades, resulting in biological physics as an established subfield with strong groups working in many physics departments. These interactionsbetween physics and biolo gy form a two-way street with physics providing new tools and concepts for understanding life, while biological systems can yield new insights into the physics of complex systems. To address the challenges ofthis interdisciplinary area, The Physics of Pro teins: An Introduction to Biological Physics and Molecular Biophysics is divided into three interconnected sections. In Parts I and II, early chapters introduce the terminology anddescribe the main biological systems that physicists will encounter. Simila rities between biomolecules, glasses, and solids are stressed with an emphasis on the fundamental concepts of living systems. The central section (Parts III andIV) delves into the dynamics of complex systems. A main theme is the realization that biologica l systems, in particular proteins, do not exist in unique conformations but can assume a very large number of slightly different structures.This complexity is captured in the concept of a free energy landscape and leads to the conclusion that fluctuations are crucial for the functioning of biological systems. The final chapter of this section challenges the reader to applythese concepts to a problem that appears in the current literature. An extensive series of appendices (Part V) provide descriptions of the key physical tools and analytical methods that have proven powerful in the study of the physicsof proteins. The appendices are designed to be consulted throughout the section on protein dynamics without breaking the deductive flow of the logic in the central section of the book
