Vortices in Bose—Einstein Condensates

Because the first experimental fulfillment of Bose–Einstein condensates (BEC) in 1995 and the award of the Nobel Prize for Physics in 2001, the houses of those gaseous quantum fluids were the focal point of foreign curiosity in physics. This monograph is devoted to the mathematical modelling of a few particular experiments which exhibit vortices and to a rigorous research of positive aspects rising experimentally.

Theoretical Microfluidics

Microfluidics is a tender and swiftly increasing medical self-discipline, which bargains with fluids and ideas in miniaturized structures, the so-called lab-on-a-chip structures. It has functions in chemical engineering, pharmaceutics, biotechnology and medication. because the lab-on-a-chip structures develop in complexity, a formal theoretical figuring out turns into more and more vital.

X-Ray Scattering of Soft Matter

Functions of X-ray scattering to gentle topic have complex significantly inside of fresh years, either conceptually and technically – mature high-power X-ray assets, synchrotrons and rotating anodes, in addition to high-speed detectors became on hand. fine quality time-resolved experiments on polymer constitution now might be played comfortably, an incredible development as a result of the real energy of the scattering strategy.

Time-Dependent Density Functional Theory

Time-dependent density practical conception (TDDFT) relies on a collection of principles and theorems relatively specific from these governing ground-state DFT, yet emphasizing comparable thoughts. this present day, using TDDFT is speedily turning out to be in lots of components of physics, chemistry and fabrics sciences the place direct resolution of the Schrödinger equation is just too tough.

Example text

The concept plays an important role in semiconductor physics, for instance, in III–V semiconductors such as gallium arsenide, the large density of states at the direct bandgap between the conduction and valence band leads to applications in photonics. The density of states in graphene (as a function of energy) displays interesting and unusual behaviour, but first we should discuss the basic mathematics underpinning density of states in two dimensions, because graphene is a genuinely 2D material.

Each electron in this region can move at vF, hence this velocity (along with the density of mobile electrons) places an upper limit on the conductivity of the sample. However, for a sample to exhibit a conductivity limited only by vF and the mobile electron density, the motion of the ­electrons must be ballistic; that is, once the electron is in a quantum state with a given wavevector, it must stay in that state. g. by defects or by thermal motion of the ions), then their motion is described as diffusive instead.
