NUS centennial Nobel Laureate public lecture( Visual )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The inaugural lecture was given by Professor Steven Chu, Nobel Laureate in Physics, from the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, USA. He highlighted that physical scientists and engineers are devoting considerable attention to biological problems. The better appreciation of the physical and mechanistic aspects of biological systems have provided a deeper, quantitative understanding of how biological systems work

Polymer dynamics of the coil-stretch transition phase transitions and hysteresis by Steven Chu( Visual )

2 editions published between 2004 and 2012 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Prof. Steven Chu, Dept. of Applied Physics, Stanford University discusses the dynamics of a single molecule which has striking similarities to phase transitions of many body systems. All two dimension flows are described as a mixture of elongational (E) and rotational (Omega) flows. In 1974, de Gennes predicted the existence of a first order phase transition from a coiled to an extended state for all flows where E> Omega. Furthermore, the extension would exhibit hysteresis with different critical values depending on the past history of the polymer. In the special case where E = Omega, this transition would "soften" and become a second order phase transition. Single molecule experiments have been used to map out the phase diagram of two-dimensional flows. We have observed the sudden phase transition in both elongational and mixed flows. By visualizing individual molecules, a physical picture of how the transition softens to a second order transition is revealed. Hysteresis and dramatic fluctuations near a critical point are also observed

The laser cooling and trapping of atoms and biomolecules by Steven Chu( Visual )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Prof. Steven Chu, 1997 Nobel Laureate in Physics, Stanford University, gives a brief history of the cooling and trapping of atoms and particles. He also discusses selected applications being pursued at Stanford
Laser cooling and trapping by Steven Chu( Visual )

1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Recent progress in the laser cooling and manipulation of atoms and molecules is discussed. Atomic 'fountains' and 'tunnels' are described and applications of these techniques to fundamental physics measurements are given
The world's energy problem and what we can do about it by Steven Chu( Visual )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Laser cooling, trapping and the applications to atom interferometry, quantum gases & biology by Steven Chu( Visual )

1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lasers can be used to trap and manipulate neutral particles. These can be used in a wide range of applications. Steve Chu, Stanford University, discusses the use of atom interferometry to measure the acceleration of an atom due to gravity and photon recoil with high sensitivity. He also presents a method of cooling which is used to cool Na atoms in one dimension to an effective temperature of 100 nK, a factor of 10 below the recoil limit. He ends with a discussion of an application in biology, where optical tweezers are used to test models for muscle contraction
