Title:Thermodynamics of Crystalline States [electronic resource]
Author(s): Minoru Fujimoto

Edition:2nd ed. 2013
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Thermodynamics is a well-established discipline of physics for properties of matter in thermal equilibrium with the surroundings. Applying to crystals, however, the laws encounter undefined properties of crystal lattice, whichtherefore need to be det ermined for a clear and well-defined description of crystalline states. Thermodynamics of Crystalline States explores the roles played by order variables and dynamic lattices in crystals in a wholly new way. Thebook begins by clarifying basic concepts for stable crystals. Next, binary phase transitions are discussed to study collective motion of order variables, as described mostly as classical phenomena. New to this edition is theexamination of magnetic crystals, where magnetic symmetry is essential for magnetic phase transitions. The multi-electron system is also discussed theoretically, as a quantum-mechanical example, for superconductivity in metalliccrystals. Throughout the book, the role played by the lattice is emphasized and studied in-depth. Ther modynamics of Crystalline States is an introductory treatise and textbook on mesoscopic phenomena in solid states, constituting abasic subject in condensed matter physics. While this book serves as a guide for advanced students in physics and material sci ence, it can also be useful as a reference for all professionals in related fields. Minoru Fujimoto is authorof Physics of Classical Electromagnetism (Springer, 2007) and The Physics of Structural Phase Transitions (Springer, 2005)

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Soft matter may, as Roberto Piazza puts it, be the stuff of dreams, but it is also the stuff of life. That is what makes this book so engaging because it shows the ingenuity that both nature and humankind have invested inthe bendy, stretchy, fragile , tough and adaptable substances we find all around us. There is plenty of hard science in this soft matter, and Piazza offers an urbane and eloquent tour through it. Philip Ball, multi-award winningscience writer. This book takes you for a leisurely walk through the middle earth that scientists call soft matter -- much smaller than what we observe with the naked eye, but not as remote as the esoteric realm of molecules,atoms and fundamental particles. From toys to trainers, our civilization would be very different if we did not have plastic. From milk to paint, what would we do without colloids? We ourselves fall into the category of soft matter,made as we are of a molecular origami of proteins, DNA and other biological compounds. This fascinating explor ation reveals what these materials have in common and which aspects of their behavior make them useful in our everydaylife. Understanding more about their physical properties will make you marvel at the soft things that surround us. With a Foreword by Pro fessor Henk Lekkerkerker, Utrecht University, the Netherlands Roberto Piazza trained as aphysicist at the school of Vittorio Degiorgio, and is now a professor of Condensed Matter Physics at the Politecnico di Milano, Italy, Associate Editor of the Europea n Physical Journal E and coordinator of the European Space Agency'sTopical Team for Applications of colloids in microgravity of the European Space Agency. He has made important contributions to research on nanoparticle suspensions, polymer and surfactant solutions and biological macromolecules.He is not only a gifted physicists, but equally well versed in history and literature

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Learning Solid State Physics involves a certain degree of maturity, since it involves tying together diverse concepts from many areas of physics. The objective is to understand, in a basic way, how solid materials behave. To dothis one needs both a g ood physical and mathematical background. One definition of Solid State Physics is it is the study of the physical (e.g. the electrical, dielectric, magnetic, elastic, and thermal) properties of solids in termsof basic physical laws. In one sense, Solid S tate Physics is more like chemistry than some other branches of physics because it focuses on common properties of large classes of materials. It is typical that Solid State Physicsemphasizes how physics properties link to electronic structure. We have re tained the term Solid Modern solid state physics came of age in the late thirties and forties and is now is part of condensed matter physics which includesliquids, soft materials, and non-crystalline solids. This solid state/condensed matter physics book begins with three broad areas: (1) How and why atoms bind together to form solids, (2) Lattice vibrations and phonons, and (3)Electrons in solids. It then applies these areas to (4) Interactions especially of electrons with phonons, (5) Metals, the Fermi surface and alloys, (6) Semiconductors, (7) Magnetism, (8) Superconductivity, (9) Dielectrics andferroelectrics, (10) Optical properties, (11) Defects, and (12) Certain other modern topics such as layered materials, quantum Hall effect, mesoscopics, nanop hysics, and soft condensed matter. For this 2nd addition new material hasbeen added on the evolution of BEC to BCS phenomena, conducting polymers, graphene, highly correlated electrons, iron pnictide superconductors, light emitting diodes, N-V centers, na nomagnetism, negative index of refraction, opticallattices, phase transitions, phononics, photonics, plasmonics, quantum computing, solar cells, spin Hall effect, and spintronics.

Note:Research into the fascinating properties and applications of magnetic fluids - also called ferrofluids - is rapidly growing, making it necessary to provide at regular intervals a coherent and tutorial account of the combinedtheoretical and experiment al advances in the field. This volume is an outgrow of seven years of research by some 30 interdisciplinary groups of scientists: theoretical physicists describing the behaviour of such complex fluids,chemical engineers synthesizing nanosize magnetic part icles, experimentalist measuring the fluid properties and mechanical engineers exploring the many applications such fluids offer, in turn providing application-guided feedback tothe modellers and requests for the preparation of new fluid types to chemists , in particular those providing optimum response to given magnetic field configurations. Moreover, recent developments towards biomedical applications widensthis spectrum to include medicine and pharmacology. Consisting of six large chapters on synthesis and characterization, thermo- and electrodynamics, surface instabilities, structure and rheology, biomedical applications as well asengineering and technical applications, this work is both a unique source of reference for anyone working in the field and a suitable introduction for newcomers to the field

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:In the introduction accelerator-based light sources are considered and a comparison is made between free-electron lasers and conventional quantum lasers. The motion and radiation of relativistic electrons in undulator magnets isdiscussed. The princip le of a low-gain free-electron laser is explained and the pendulum equations are introduced that characterize the electron dynamics in the field of a light wave. The differential equations of the high-gain FEL arederived from the Maxwell equations of elec trodynamics. Analytical and numerical solutions of the FEL equations are presented and important FEL parameters are defined, such as gain length, FEL bandwidth and saturation power. A detailednumerical study of the all-important microbunching process is p resented. The mechanism of Self Amplified Spontaneous Emission is described theoretically and illustrated with numerous experimental results. Three-dimensional effects suchas betatron oscillations and optical diffraction are addressed and their impact on the FEL performance is analyzed. The worlds first soft X-ray FEL, the user facility FLASH at DESY, is described in some detail in order to give animpression of the complexity of such an accelerator-based light source. Finally, the physical and technologic al challenges of X-ray FELs are addressed while some of the more involved calculations are put into the appendices, where alsosupplementary material can be found

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
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

The subject is developed in a pedagogical manner, starting from the basics, going from the simple ideal systems to the interacting systems, and ending with the more modern topics.The latter include the renormalisation group approach to critical phenomena, the density functional theory of interfaces, the topological defects of nematic liquid crystals and the kinematic aspects of the phase transformation process.This textbook provides the student with a complete overview, inte ntionally at an introductory level, of the theory of phase transitions. References include suggestions for more detailed treatments and four appendices supply overviewsof the mathematical tools employed in the text

Title:Rugged Free Energy Landscapes [electronic resource] : Common Computational Approaches to Spin Glasses, Structural Glasses and Biological Macromolecules
Author(s): Wolfhard Janke
Date:2008
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This collection of lectures and tutorial reviews by renowned experts focusses on the common computational approaches in use to unravel the static and dynamical behaviour of complex physical systems at the interface of physics,chemistry and biology. P aradigmatic examples of condensed matter physics are spin and structural glasses and protein folding, as well as their aggregation and adsorption to hard and soft surfaces, in physico-chemical biology. Among themost prominent joint key features of the sys tems considered in this volume are rugged free-energy landscapes. These generate metastability and are often responsible for very slow dynamics allowing for the system to be trapped in one ofthe many available local minima. The challenge set forth by the authors of this volume is to provide a common basis and technical language for the (computational) technology transfer between the fields and systems considered

Title:Voltage-Sensitive Ion Channels [electronic resource] : Biophysics of Molecular Excitability
Author(s): H. Richard Leuchtag
Date:2008
Publisher:Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Voltage-sensitive ion channels are macromolecules embedded in the membranes of nerve and muscle fibers of animals. Because of their physiological functions, biochemical structures and electrical switching properties, they are atan intersection of bio logy, chemistry and physics. Despite decades of intensive research under the traditional approach of gated structural pores, the relation between the structure of these molecules and their function remainsenigmatic. This book critically examines physicall y oriented approaches not covered in other ion-channel books. It looks at optical and thermal as well as electrical data, and at studies in the frequency domain as well as in the timedomain. Rather than presenting the reader with only an option of mechani stic models at an inappropriate pseudo-macroscopic scale, it emphasizes concepts established in organic chemistry and condensed state physics. The booksapproach to the understanding of these unique structures breaks with the unproven view of ion channels as structurally gated pores. Rather, it proposes gateless gating, in which the onset and cessation of avalanches of ions crossingthe membrane is explained as a cooperative phenomenon in a system poised far from equilibrium. These events, called channel op ening and closing, are initiated by an electrical depolarization, a mechanical stimulus or even a thermalfluctuation

Date:2007
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:When the size of a machine approaches the nanometer scale, thermal fluctuations become large compared to the energies that drive the motor. The control of motion at the nanoscale therefore requires physical understanding andtechnical approaches that are fundamentally different from those that are successful at the macroscale. This volume provides an introduction to the state-of-the-art of controlled nanoscale motion in biological and artificial systems.Topics include the control and function of prote in motors, the physics of non-equilibrium Brownian motion, and the physics and fabrication of synthetic molecular motors. The chapters in this book are based on selected contributions onthe 2005 Nobel Symposium to Controlled Nanoscale Motion and are writt en by leading experts in their fields

Title:Light Scattering by Optically Soft Particles [electronic resource] : Theory and Applications

Date:2006
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The present monograph deals with a particular class of approximation methods in the context of light scattering by small particles. This class of approximations has been termed as eikonal or soft particle approximations. Theeikonal approximation was studied extensively in the potential scattering and then adopted in optical scattering problems. In this context, the eikonal and other soft particle approximations pertain to scatterers whose relativerefractive index compared to surrounding medium is clo se to unity. The study of these approximations is very important because soft particles occur abundantly in nature. For example, the particles that occur in ocean optics, biomedicaloptics, atmospheric optics and in many industrial applications can be clas sified as soft particles. This book was written in recognition of the long-standing and current interest in the field of scattering approximations for softparticles. It should prove to be a useful addition for researchers in the field of light scattering

Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The book reviews the synergism between various fields of research that are confronted with networks, such as genetic and metabolic networks, social networks, the Internet and ecological systems. In many cases, the interactingnetworks manifest so-call ed emergent properties that are not possessed by any of the individual components. This means that the detailed knowledge of the components is insufficient to describe the whole system. Recent work hasindicated that networks in nature have so-called scale -free characteristics, and the associated dynamic network modelling shows unexpected results such as an amazing robustness against accidental failures. Modelling the signaltransduction networks in bioprocesses as in living cells is a challenging interdisc iplinary research area. It is now realized that the many features of molecular interaction networks within a cell are shared to a large degree by theother complex systems mentioned above, such as the Internet, computer chips and society. Thus knowledge ga ined from the study of complex non-biological systems can be applied to the intricate braided relationships that govern cellularfunctions

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Molecular gels and fibrillar networks a comprehensive guide to experiment and theory Molecular Gels: Materials with Self-Assembled Fibrillar Networks provides a comprehensive treatise on gelators, especially lowmolecular-mass gelators (LMOGs), and t he properties of their gels. The structures and modes of formation of the self-assembled fibrillar networks (SAFINs) that immobilize the liquid components of the gels are discussed experimentallyand theoretically. The spectroscopic, rheological, and struc tural features of the different classes of LMOGs are also presented. Many examples of the application of the principal analytical techniques for investigation of moleculargels (including SANS, SAXS, WAXS, UV-vis absorption, fluorescence and CD spectroscop ies, scanning electron, transmission electron and optical microscopies, and molecular modeling) are presented didactically and in-depth, as are severalof the theories of the stages of aggregation of individual LMOG molecules leading to SAFINs. Several act ual and potential applications of molecular gels in disparate fields (from silicate replication of nanostructures to artconservation) are described. Special emphasis is placed on perspectives for future developments. This book is an invaluable resource fo r researchers and practitioners either already researching self-assembly and soft matter or new tothe area. Those who will find the book useful include chemists, engineers, spectroscopists, physicists, biologists, theoreticians, and materials scientists. Richard G. Weiss is Professor of Chemistry, Department of Chemistry,Georgetown University, Washington, DC, USA.

Title:Models for Polymeric andAnisotropic Liquids [electronic resource]
Author(s): Martin Krger
Date:2005
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Models should be as simple as possible, but no simpler. For the physics of polymeric liquids, whose relevant lengths and time scales are out of reach for first principles calculations, this means that we have to choose a minimumset of sufficiently de tailed descriptors such as architecture (linear, ring, branched), connectivity, semiflexibility, stretchability, excluded volume, and hydrodynamic interaction. These 'universal' fluids allow the prediction ofmaterial properties under external flow- or ele ctrodynamic fields, the results being expressed in terms of reference units, specific for any particular chosen material. This book provides an introduction to the kinetic theory andcomputer simulation methods needed to handle these models and to interpre t the results. Also included are a number of sample applications and computer codes

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:LIFE - as a Matter of Fat Lipidomics is the science of the fats called lipids. Lipids are as important for life as proteins, sugars, and genes. The present book gives a multi-disciplinary perspective on the physics of life and theparticular role play ed by lipids and the lipid-bilayer component of cell membranes. The book is aimed at undergraduate students and young research workers within physics, chemistry, biochemistry, molecular biology, nutrition, as wellas pharmaceutical and biomedical sciences. The emphasis is on the physical properties of lipid membranes seen as soft and molecularly structured interfaces. By combining and synthesizing insights obtained from a variety of recentstudies, an attempt is made to clarify what membrane structure is an d how it can be quantitatively described. Furthermore, it is shown how biological function mediated by membranes is controlled by lipid membrane structure andorganization on length scales ranging from the size of the individual molecule, across molecular assemblies of proteins and lipid domains in the range of nanometers, to the size of whole cells. Applications of lipids in nano-technologyand biomedicine are also described. The Emerging Science of Lipidomics We have just witnessed a scientific revolution at the end of the 20th century that took us through the genomics era with a focus on sequencing genes and mappinggene products. We are now in the middle of the proteomics era where the multitude of proteins that are encoded in the genes are identified an d their functions are unveiled. In front of us we have a new era recognizing the role oflipids. The science of lipidomics is emerging. Lipidomics involves a quantitative experimental and theoretical study of, e.g. lipid and membrane self-assembly, lipid-p rotein interactions, lipid-gene interactions, and the biophysicalproperties of lipid structure, function, and dynamics

Note:Metallic (magnetic and non-magnetic) nanocrystalline materials have been known for over ten years but only recent developments in the research into those complex alloys and their metastable amorphous precursors have created a needto summarize the mos t important accomplishments in the field. This book is a collection of articles on various aspects of metallic nanocrystalline materials, and an attempt to address this above need. The main focus of the papers isput on the new issues that emerge in the st udies of nanocrystalline materials, and, in particular, on (i) new compositions of the alloys, (ii) properties of conventional nanocrystalline materials, (iii) modeling and simulations, (iv)preparation methods, (v) experimental techniques of measurements, and (vi) different modern applications. Interesting phenomena of the physics of nanocrystalline materials are a consequence of the effects induced by the nanocrystallinestructure. They include interface physics, the influence of the grain boundaries, the averaging of magnetic anisotropy by exchange interactions, the decrease in exchange length, and the existence of a minimum two-phase structure at theatomic scale. Attention is also paid to the special character of the local atomic ordering and to the cor responding interatomic bonding as well as to anomalies and particularities of electron density distributions, and to the formationof metastable, nanocrystalline (or quasi-crystalline) phases built from exceptionally small grains with special properties. A nother important focus of attention are new classes of materials which are not based on new compositions, butrather on the original and special crystalline structure in the nanoscale

Note:Liquid crystals, polymers and polymer liquid crystals are soft condensed matter systems of major technological and scientific interest. An understanding of the macroscopic properties of these complex systems and of their many andinteresting peculiari ties at the molecular level can nowadays only be attained using computer simulations and statistical mechanical theories. Both in the Liquid Crystal and Polymer fields a considerable amount of simulation work hasbeen done in the last few years with variou s classes of models at different special resolutions, ranging from atomistic to molecular and coarse-grained lattice models. Each of the two fields has developed its own set of tools andspecialized procedures and the book aims to provide a state of the ar t review of the computer simulation studies of polymers and liquid crystals. This is of great importance in view of a potential cross-fertilization between theseconnected areas which is particularly apparent for a number of experimental systems like, e.g. polymer liquid crystals and anisotropic gels where the different fields necessarily merge. An effort has been made to assess thepossibilities of a coherent description of the themes that have developed independently, and to compare and extend the theoret ical and computational techniques put forward in the different areas

Title:The Physics of Structural Phase Transitions [electronic resource]

Edition:Second Edition
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Phase transitions in which crystalline solids undergo structural changes present an interesting problem in the interplay between the crystal structure and the ordering process that is typically nonlinear. Intended for readers withprior knowledge of b asic condensed-matter physics, this book emphasizes the physics behind spontaneous structural changes in crystals. Starting with the relevant thermodynamic principles, the text discusses the nature of ordervariables in collective motion in structural phas e transitions, where a singularity in such a collective mode is responsible for lattice instability as revealed by soft phonons. In this book, critical anomalies at second-orderstructural transitions are first analyzed with the condensate model. Discussio ns on the nonlinear ordering mechanism are followed with the soliton theory, thereby interpreting the role of long-range order. Relevant details fornonlinear mathematics are therefore given for minimum necessity. The text also discusses experimental metho ds for modulated crystal structures, giving examples of structural changes in representative systems. This book is divided intotwo parts. The first part includes such topics as the Landau theory of phase transitions, statistics, correlations, and the mean -field approximation, pseudospins and their collective motion, soft lattice modes, condensates and theirnonlinear growth, and lattice imperfections and their role in phase transitions of real crystals. The second part discusses experimental studies of mod ulated crystals using X-ray diffraction, neutron inelastic scattering, lightscattering, dielectric measurements, and magnetic resonance spectroscopy. While the presence of modulated structures in the critical region is not particularly suggested in the pu blished results of these studies, it is notable thatmost observed anomalies indicate evidence for pinned pseudospin condensates
