Title: | Theoretical and Experimental Studies on Non-Fourier Heat Conduction Based on Thermomass Theory [electronic resource] |
Author(s): |
Hai-Dong Wang |
Date: | 2014 |
Publisher: | Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer |
Size: | 1 online resource |
Note: | This book mainly focuses on the theoretical and experimental study of non-Fourier heat conduction behavior. A novel thermomass theory is used as the theoretical basis, which provides a general heat conduction equation for theaccurate prediction of no n-Fourier heat conduction. In order to prove the validity of this thermomass theory, a large current was used to heat the metallic nanofilm at the minimum temperature of 3 K. The measured average temperature ofthe nanofilm was notably higher than the pred iction of Fouriers heat diffusion equation, while matching well with the general heat conduction equation. This is the first time that steady non-Fourier heat conduction has beenobserved. Moreover, this book concerns the role of electron-phonon interactio n in metallic nanofilms, which involves the breakdown of the Wiedemann-Franz law at low temperatures and interfacial thermal resistance at femtosecondtimescales. Readers will find useful information on non-Fourier heat conduction and the latest advances i n the study of charge and heat transport in metallic nanofilms |

Title: | Hadronic Transport Coefficients from Effective Field Theories [electronic resource] |
Author(s): |
Juan M Torres-Rincon |
Date: | 2014 |
Publisher: | Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer |
Size: | 1 online resource |
Note: | This dissertation focuses on the calculation of transport coefficients in the matter created in a relativistic heavy-ion collision after chemical freeze-out. This matter can be well approximated using a pion gas out ofequilibrium. We describe the the oretical framework needed to obtain the shear and bulk viscosities, the thermal and electrical conductivities and the flavor diffusion coefficients of a meson gas at low temperatures. To describe theinteractions of the degrees of freedom, we use effective field theories with chiral and heavy quark symmetries. We subsequently introduce the unitarization methods in order to obtain a scattering amplitude that satisfies the unitaritycondition exactly, then go on to calculate the transport properties of the lo w-temperature phase of quantum chromodynamics - the hadronic medium - which can be used in hydrodynamic simulations of a relativistic heavy-ion collision andits subsequent evolution. We show that the shear viscosity over entropy density exhibits a minimum in a phase transition by studying this coefficient in atomic Argon (around the liquid-gas phase transition) and in the linear sigmamodel in the limit of a large number of scalar fields (which presents a chiral phase transition). Finally, we provide an ex perimental method for estimating the bulk viscosity in relativistic heavy-ion collisions by performingcorrelations of the fluctuating components of the stress-energy tensor |

Title: | Statistical Approach to Quantum Field Theory [electronic resource] : An Introduction |

Note: | Over the past few decades the powerful methods of statistical physics and Euclidean quantum field theory have moved closer together, with common tools based on the use of path integrals. The interpretation of Euclidean fieldtheories as particular sys tems of statistical physics has opened up new avenues for understanding strongly coupled quantum systems or quantum field theories at zero or finite temperatures. Accordingly, the first chapters of this bookcontain a self-contained introduction to path in tegrals in Euclidean quantum mechanics and statistical mechanics. The resulting high-dimensional integrals can be estimated with the help of Monte Carlo simulations based on Markovprocesses. The most commonly used algorithms are presented in detail so as to prepare the reader for the use of high-performance computers as an experimental tool for this burgeoning field of theoretical physics. Several chaptersare then devoted to an introduction to simple lattice field theories and a variety of spin systems wi th discrete and continuous spins, where the ubiquitous Ising model serves as an ideal guide for introducing the fascinating area ofphase transitions. As an alternative to the lattice formulation of quantum field theories, variants of the flexible renormal ization group methods are discussed in detail. Since, according to our present-day knowledge, all fundamentalinteractions in nature are described by gauge theories, the remaining chapters of the book deal with gauge theories without and with matter. This text is based on course-tested notes for graduate students and, as such, its style isessentially pedagogical, requiring only some basics of mathematics, statistical physics, and quantum field theory. Yet it also contains some more sophisticated concepts w hich may be useful to researchers in the field. Each chapter endswith a number of problems guiding the reader to a deeper understanding of some of the material presented in the main text a |

Note: | Diffusion in solids at moderate temperatures is a well-known phenomenon. However, direct experimental evidence about the responsible atomic-scale mechanisms has been scarce, due to difficulties in probing the relevant length-and time-scales. The pres ent thesis deals with the application of X-ray Photon Correlation Spectroscopy (XPCS) for answering such questions. This is an established method for the study of slow dynamics on length-scales of a fewnanometres. The scattered intensity in the diffuse re gime, i.e. corresponding to atomic distances, is very low, however, and so it has so far been considered impossible to use XPCS for this problem. Threefold progress is reported inthis work: It proposes a number of systems selected for high diffuse intensi ty, it optimizes the photon detection and data evaluation procedures, and it establishes theoretical models for interpretating the results. Together theseadvances allowed the first successful atomic-scale XPCS experiment, which elucidated the role of pref erred configurations for atomic jumps in a copper-gold alloy. The growth in available coherent X-ray intensity together withnext-generation X-ray sources will open up a wide field of application for this new method |

Title: | Model of the Response Function of CUORE Bolometers [electronic resource] |

Note: | The neutrino is probably the most elusive elementary particle discovered so far. Its mass is very small and still unknown, and it is considered a key quantity in many theories beyond the Standard Model of particle physics. Thesmallness of the mass co uld be explained if neutrinos are, unlike all other particles, equal to their own antiparticles, thus following the conjecture of E. Majorana. The double beta decay without emission of neutrinos is a nuclearprocess that can happen only if the neutrino is a Majorana particle. Observation of this decay would therefore necessarily imply that neutrinos are Majorana particles and would set the mass scale, a breakthrough in our understanding ofnature. The CUORE experiment will search for the neutrinoless double beta decay in 130Te, using 1 ton of TeO2 bolometric detectors. Bolometers are calorimeters that operate at cryogenic temperatures, able to measure the temperaturerise produced by the energy release of an impinging particle. They feature good resolution a nd low background, making them excellent detectors to search for rare decays. The performances of the experiment are currently limited bytemperature instabilities of the bolometers and by a poor understanding of their data. Measuring the energy deposited by a particle, in fact, is complicated and the shape of the signal depends on the energy. In this thesis a model ofthe signal of TeO2 bolometers is developed. It is able to explain the origin of the unwanted features that would limit the performances of C UORE. The application of the model to data from test bolometers led to great improvements ofthe results in terms of energy resolution, energy calibration, and signal shape discrimination. This thesis has been awarded at the Department of Physics, Universi ta di Roma - La Sapienza, Italy. With a Foreword by Professor FernandoFerroni |

Note: | At extremely low temperatures, clouds of bosonic atoms form what is known as a Bose-Einstein condensate. Recently, it has become clear that many different types of condensates -- so called fragmented condensates -- exist. Inorder to tell whether frag mentation occurs or not, it is necessary to solve the full many-body Schrdinger equation, a task that remained elusive for experimentally relevant conditions for many years. In this thesis the firstnumerically exact solutions of the time-dependent many-bo dy Schrdinger equation for a bosonic Josephson junction are provided and compared to the approximate Gross-Pitaevskii and Bose-Hubbard theories. It is thereby shown that thedynamics of Bose-Einstein condensates is far more intricate than one would anticip ate based on these approximations. A special conceptual innovation in this thesis are optimal lattice models. It is shown how all quantum latticemodels of condensed matter physics that are based on Wannier functions, e.g. the Bose/Fermi Hubbard model, can be optimized variationally. This leads to exciting new physics |

Note: | Although based on lectures given for graduate students and postgraduates starting in plasma physics, this concise introduction to the fundamental processes and tools is as well directed at established researchers who are newcomersto spectroscopy and seek quick access to the diagnostics of plasmas ranging from low- to high-density technical systems at low temperatures, as well as from low- to high-density hot plasmas. Basic ideas and fundamental concepts areintroduced as well as typical instrumentatio n from the X-ray to the infrared spectral regions. Examples, techniques and methods illustrate the possibilities. This book directly addresses the experimentalist who actually has to carryout the experiments and their interpretation. For that reason about half of the book is devoted to experimental problems, the instrumentation, components, detectors and calibration |

Note: | The application to Biology of the methodologies developed in Physics is attracting an increasing interest from the scientific community. It has led to the emergence of a new interdisciplinary field, called Physical Biology, withthe aim of reaching a better understanding of the biological mechanisms at molecular and cellular levels. Statistical Mechanics in particular plays an important role in the development of this new field. For this reason, the XXthsession of the famous Sitges Conference on Stati stical Physics was dedicated to Physical Biology: from Molecular Interactions to Cellular Behavior. As is by now tradition, a number of lectures were subsequently selected, expandedand updated for publication as lecture notes, so as to provide both a stat e-of-the-art introduction and overview to a number of subjects of broader interest and to favor the interchange and cross-fertilization of ideas betweenbiologists and physicists. The present volume focuses on three main subtopics (biological water, protei n solutions as well as transport and replication), presenting for each of the them the on-going debates on recent results. The roleof water in biological processes, the mechanisms of protein folding, the phases and cooperative effects in biological soluti ons, the thermodynamic description of replication, transport and neural activity, all are subjects that arerevised in this volume, based on new experiments and new theoretical interpretations |

Title: | Materials Issues for Generation IV Systems [electronic resource] : Status, Open Questions and Challenges |

Note: | Global warming, shortage of low-cost oil resources and the increasing demand for energy are currently controlling the world's economic expansion while often opposing desires for sustainable and peaceful development. In thiscontext, atomic energy sati sfactorily fulfills the criteria of low carbon gas production and high overall yield. However, in the absence of industrial fast-breeders the use of nuclear fuel is not optimal, and the production of highactivity waste materials is at a maximum. These are the principal reasons for the development of a new, fourth generation of nuclear reactors, minimizing the undesirable side-effects of current nuclear energy production technologywhile increasing yields by increasing operation temperatures and opening the way for the industrial production of hydrogen through the decomposition of water. The construction and use of such reactors is hindered by several factors,including performance limitations of known structural materials, particularly if the life of the pr ojected systems had to extend over the periods necessary to achieve low costs (at least 60 years). This book collects lectures andseminars presented at the homonymous NATO ASI held in autumn 2007 at the Institut dEtudes Scientifiques in Cargse, France. Th e adopted approach aims at improving and coordinating basic knowledge in materials science andengineering with specific areas of condensed matter physics, the physics of particle/matter interaction and of radiation damage. It is our belief that this metho dology is crucially conditioning the development and the industrialproduction of new structural materials capable of coping with the requirements of these future reactors |

Note: | Since the 1980s, a general theme in the study of high-temperature superconductors has been to test the BCS theory and its predictions against new data. At the same time, this process has engendered new physics, new materials, andnew theoretical frame works. Remarkable advances have occurred in sample quality and in single crystals, in hole and electron doping in the development of sister compounds with lower transition temperatures, and in instruments to probestructure and dynamics. Handbook of High-T emperature Superconductvity is a comprehensive and in-depth treatment of both experimental and theoretical methodologies by the the world's top leaders in the field. The Editor, Nobel LaureateJ. Robert Schrieffer, and Associate Editor James S. Brooks, hav e produced a unified, coherent work providing a global view of high-temperature superconductivity covering the materials, the relationships with heavy-fermion and organicsystems, and the many formidable challenges that remain |
