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
Observation of the forbidden magnetic dipole transition 6²P1/2-7² P1/2 in atomic thallium by Steven Chu( )

2 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A measurement of the 6²P₁₂ .-->. 7²P₁₂ forbidden magnetic dipole matrix element in atomic thallium is described. A pulsed, linearly polarized dye laser tuned to the transition frequency is used to excite the thallium vapor from the 6²P₁₂ ground state to the 7²P₁₂ excited state. Interference between the magnetic dipole M1 amplitude and a static electric field induced E1 amplitude results in an atomic polarization of the 7²P₁₂ state, and the subsequent circular polarization of 535 nm fluorescence. The circular polarization is seen to be proportional to (M1)/(E1) as expected, and measured for several transitions between hyperfine levels of the 6²P₁₂ and 7²P₁₂ states. The result is (M1) = -(2.11 +- 0.30) x 10⁻⁵ parallel bar e parallel bar dirac constant/2mc, in agreement with theory

Cooling and Trapping of Atoms and Particles( Book )

7 editions published between 1995 and 2004 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A number of atom interferometry methods have been introduced and the state of the art in precision atom interferometry have been advanced. An interferometer using laser cooled atoms in an atomic fountain and off-resonant optical Raman pulses between ground states of the atom has been applied to the measurement of the ratio of planck's constant to mass, which is a step in the determination of the fine structure constant. The result has surpassed the next best measurement (the Quantum Hall Effect measurement) by a factor of ten in precision. Also, using an atomic interferometer as an accelerometer, the value of g has been measured and compared to that of the previous best absolute gravimeter (based on a falling corner-cube optical interferometer) with comparable results. Using 'optical tweezers' based on laser trapping techniques, experimental verification of the reputation theory of polymer dynamics, developed by de Genes twenty-five years ago, have been achieved. Other techniques and measurements have been unable to provide the needed verification

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
