What I Learned From Henry Dick: Highlights and What's Left for Us?  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

(1) Slow spreading ridges have lots of peridotite outcrops, especially at segment ends. This dove-tailed with seismic and gravity observations, and geodynamic modeling, to yield a community consensus on 3D crustal accretion. However there are an increasingly large number of abysmal peridotite outcrops known at segment centers, so what is happening to the simple 3D picture? (2) There are global systematics in abysmal peridotite compositions, and in corresponding MORB, that define apparent melting trends. However (a) Why do the peridotite trends slope the wrong way on phase diagrams? (b) How come local variability in some fracture zones is almost as large as global variability? (c) What are the pyroxene proportions when corrected to magmatic temperature? (d) To what extent are the modal data affected by density changes during hydrous alteration? (e) To what extent are pyroxene and olivine contents affected by reactive dissolution and/or "impregnation"? (f) What does it mean when highly depleted peridotites are sampled from very cold parts of the ridge system? (3) Fractional melting is likely. Well, OK, near fractional. However (a) How many of those clinopyroxenes analyzed by Johnson et al (JGR 90) and Johnson & Dick (JGR 92) are igneous? Particularly the most depleted ones must be metamorphic. Given the diffusion data, what do the trace element concentrations really tell us? (b) What about the whole rock data? (4) The average composition of oceanic gabbros from ODP Hole 735B = average MORB, for trace as well as major elements. How does this work? Average MORB results from ~ 50% crystal fractionation. Where are the corresponding cumulates to balance lavas & 735B style gabbro sections? (5) Re-circulating, depleted peridotites can melt over and over again, provided they are reheated to `ambient' potential temperature during their residence in the convecting mantle. (6) There are important feedbacks between localized melt transport and localized deformation, in the mantle and probably in the oceanic lower crust. (7) A lot of abysmal peridotites from 14-16 N on the MAR lack subsolidus deformation, despite having made a journey through the lithosphere to the seafloor. (8) Oblique spreading segments probably have slower mantle upwelling rates than orthogonal segments in the same region. (9) There are large offset, low angle normal faults that expose peridotite and gabbro at slow spreading ridges. (10) Inside corner highs are commonly underlain by peridotite. (penultimate) I did not LEARN much about dunites from Henry. However, we AGREED from an early date that dunites are very interesting conduits for olivine-saturated melt passing through pyroxene-bearing wall rocks, that formed at least in part by pyroxene dissolution during porous flow, and that could be important for understanding disequilibrium between MORB and shallow mantle peridotite. (last and least) Some horizontal dunites MAY form by vertical migration of melt across pre-existing, horizontal pyroxene layers. At this point in the talk, I will eat my hat.

Henry's Gallery  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

This site showcases the work of Henry Diltz, the official photographer of the Woodstock and Monterey Pop Festivals and over 100 album covers. Although the site is designed as a commercial enterprise (many of the photos can be ordered at the site), users are free to browse this collection of over 100 photos, some with brief notes, of many of the leading Rock and Roll musicians of the 1960s and 70s. Some of the photos were taken during posed sessions or album cover shoots, but many are candids to be found nowhere else. Highlights include shots of Joni Mitchell, David Crosby, and Eric Clapton in Mama Cass's backyard; Jerry Garcia jamming at Crosby's house; and the Who at the Monterey Pop Festival with a hapless engineer trying to save his microphones from Pete Townshend's flailing guitar. Additional resources include a brief special feature on Henry's recollections of Woodstock (with photos).

Asymmetric Dicke class states: Generation and applications  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Dicke class states are maximally entangled states of atoms or atom-like two-state entities involving a small number of excitations (much less than the total number of atoms). The so-called asymmetric Dicke states, which carry different relative phases for different permutations corresponding to different atomic entities being in the excited state, are more useful for quantum information processing tasks than the symmetric Dicke states. I have devised a practical conceptual proposal for generation of asymmetric Dicke states based on an existing proposal to generate symmetric Dicke states. I also show that the asymmetric Dicke-class states can be used for perfect teleportation and dense coding.

Jordan-Brans-Dicke Theory  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

This is primarily an historical survey of the origins and evolution of only one of a variety of many scalar-tensor (ST) alternatives to the standard Einstein equations of General Relativity. This review will only address itself to what has become known as the Brans-Dicke, or more properly Jordan-Brans-Dicke, theory based on the 1961 publications of Brans and Dicke. These papers substantially duplicate much of the work of Jordan and his group. However, for several reasons, including the stature of Dicke, this theoretical work from the 1960's was seminal in triggering an explosion of interest, both theoretical and experimental, into Einstein's theory and its alternatives. Until that time the early corroboration of Einstein's equations seemed to preclude interest in investigation of alternatives. From the 1960's on however, ST theories provided a remarkable impetus for renewed exploration into gravitational physics. Perhaps this has been their most significant contribution to the field of space-time physics, now especially in cosmology.

Quantum Metrology with Dicke Squeezed States  

E-print Network

We introduce a new class of quantum many-particle entangled states, called the Dicke squeezed (or DS) states, which can be used to improve the precision in quantum metrology beyond the standard quantum limit. We show that the enhancement in measurement precision is characterized by a single experimentally detectable parameter, called the Dicke squeezing $\\xi_{D}$, which also bounds the entanglement depth for this class of states. The measurement precision approaches the ultimate Heisenberg limit as $\\xi_{D}$ attains the minimum in an ideal Dicke state. Compared with other entangled states, we show that the Dicke squeezed states are more robust to decoherence and give better measurement precision under typical experimental noise.

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

While many writers have to wait decades, if not centuries, after their death to receive critical or commercial success, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow was lucky to achieve both during his lifetime. Born in Portland, Maine in 1807, he was a figure of national prominence by the 1850s, and a much-beloved professor at Harvard. Recently, the Maine Historical Society created this fine tribute to the man and his work. The site is divided into seven primary sections which include an extended biographical essay about his life and work, information about his family and his homes in Portland and Cambridge. Of course, any site about Longfellow would be incomplete without a generous selection of his poems, and this site has that particular detail well covered. In the Longfellow poems database, visitors can view a sortable list of his works, which can be arranged by poem title, first line, and publication date.

Solar oblateness from Archimedes to Dicke  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The non-spherical shape of the Sun has been invoked to explain the anomalous precession of Mercury. A brief history of some methods for measuring the solar diameter is presented. Archimedes was the first to give upper and lower values for the solar diameter in the third century before Christ. Then there followed the method of total eclipses, used after Halley's observative campaign of 1715 eclipse. We will also discuss the variant of partial eclipses, useful to measure different chords of the solar disk and the method of Dicke, which correlates oblateness with luminous excess in the equatorial zone.

Because of this, the primordial nucleosynthesis (Big - Bang nucleosynthesis) result obtained for standard cosmology remains the same for Jordan-Brans-Dicke cosmology. We show that Jordan-Brans-Dicke cosmology with a mass term for the scalar field as well as explaining dark energy for the present era, can also explain radiation dominated cosmology for the primordial nucleosynthesis era.

Joseph Henry and the Telegraph  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Morse's telegraph rested upon three scientific advances which occured between 1800 and 1830: the development of battery technology, the formulation of laws governing the behavior of electrical components in circuits, and the discovery of electromagnetic phenomena. Joseph Henry was crucial to the development of the early telegraph. His work on electromagnetism made it possible for the electric current to manifest itself as useful mechanical work. Henry developed electromagnets of sufficient lifting power, but which drew relatively small currents; these magnets were the heart of Morse's telegraph receiver. Morse also used electromagnets as relays, which allowed him to transmit signals over great distances. Morse often acknowledged his debt to Henry, and the two enjoyed a cordial working relationship until the mid-1840s. But during the bitter and protracted litigation over Morse's patent, Henry testified (unwillingly, he claimed) against the inventor. This began a lifelong quarrel between the two men, the specifics of which were tedious and petty. In general terms, however, their conflict arose over different notions regarding scientific discovery and technological innovation.

In this case, the BD parameter ? is constrained to ?>692 at the 99% confidence level, an order of magnitude improvement over previous constraints.

Interacting Ghost Dark Energy in Brans-Dicke Theory  

E-print Network

We investigate the QCD ghost model of dark energy in the framework of Brans-Dicke cosmology. First, we study the non-interacting ghost dark energy in a flat Brans-Dicke theory. In this case we obtain the EoS and the deceleration parameters and a differential equation governing the evolution of ghost energy density. Interestingly enough, we find that the EoS parameter of the non-interacting ghost dark energy can cross the phantom line ($w_D=-1$) provided the parameters of the model are chosen suitably. Then, we generalize the study to the interacting ghost dark energy in both flat and non-flat Brans-Dicke framework and find out that the transition of $w_D$ to phantom regime can be more easily achieved for than when resort to the Einstein field equations is made.

Cosmic Evolution in Brans-Dicke Chameleon Cosmology  

E-print Network

We have investigated the Brans-Dicke Chameleon theory of gravity and obtained exact solutions of the scale factor $a(t)$, scalar field $\\phi(t)$, an arbitrary function $f(\\phi)$ which interact with the matter Lagrangian in the action of the Brans-Dicke Chameleon theory and potential $V(\\phi)$ for different epochs of the cosmic evolution. We plot the functions $a(t)$, $\\phi(t)$, $f(t)$ and $V(\\phi)$ for different values of the Brans-Dicke parameter. In our models, there is no accelerating solution, only decelerating one with $q>0$. The physical cosmological distances have been investigated carefully. Further the statefinder parameters pair and deceleration parameter are discussed.

Dynamics of false vacuum bubbles in Brans-Dicke theory  

SciTech Connect

We study the dynamics of false vacuum bubbles in the Brans-Dicke theory of gravity by using the thin shell or thin wall approximation. We consider a false vacuum bubble that has a different value for the Brans-Dicke field between the inside false vacuum region and the outside true vacuum region. Within a certain limit of field values, the difference of field values makes the effective tension of the shell negative. This allows new expanding false vacuum bubbles to be seen by the outside observer, which are disallowed in Einstein gravity.

Entanglement detection in the vicinity of arbitrary Dicke states  

E-print Network

Dicke states represent a class of multipartite entangled states that can be generated experimentally with many applications in quantum information. We propose a method to experimentally detect genuine multipartite entanglement in the vicinity of arbitrary Dicke states. The detection scheme can be used to experimentally quantity the entanglement depth of many-body systems and is easy to implement as it requires to measure only three collective spin operators. The detection criterion is strong as it heralds multipartite entanglement even in cases where the state fidelity goes down exponentially with the number of qubits.

Experimental Realization of Dicke States of up to Six Qubits for Multiparty Quantum Networking  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We report the first experimental generation and characterization of a six-photon Dicke state. The produced state shows a fidelity of F=0.56±0.02 with respect to an ideal Dicke state and violates a witness detecting genuine six-qubit entanglement by 4 standard deviations. We confirm characteristic Dicke properties of our resource and demonstrate its versatility by projecting out four- and five-photon Dicke states, as well as four-photon Greenberger-Horne-Zeilinger and W states. We also show that Dicke states have interesting applications in multiparty quantum networking protocols such as open-destination teleportation, telecloning, and quantum secret sharing.

Henry's law constants of polyols  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Henry's law constants (HLC) are derived for several polyols bearing between 2 and 6 hydroxyl groups, based on literature data for water activity, vapour pressure and/or solubility. Depending on the case, infinite dilution activity coefficients (IDACs), solid state pressures or activity coefficient ratios are obtained as intermediary results. For most compounds, these are the first values reported, while others compare favourably with literature data in most cases. Using these values and those from a previous work (Compernolle and Müller, 2014), an assessment is made on the partitioning of polyols, diacids and hydroxy acids to droplet and aqueous aerosol.

Curvature and Flatness in a Brans-Dicke Universe  

E-print Network

The evolution of a universe with Brans-Dicke gravity and nonzero curvature is investigated here. We present the equations of motion and their solutions during the radiation dominated era. In a Friedman-Robertson-Walker cosmology we show explicitly that the three possible values of curvature $\\kappa=+1,0,-1$ divide the evolution of the Brans-Dicke universe into dynamically distinct classes just as for the standard model. Subsequently we discuss the flatness problem which exists in Brans-Dicke gravity as it does in the standard model. In addition, we demonstrate a flatness problem in MAD Brans-Dicke gravity. In general, in any model that addresses the horizon problem, including inflation, there are two components to the flatness issue: i) at the Planck epoch curvature gains importance, and ii) during accelerated expansion curvature becomes less important and the universe flattens. In many cases the universe must be very flat at the Planck scale in order for the accelerated epoch to be reached, thus there can be a residual flatness problem.

Henry (Hank) J. Moore, a member of the AGU Planetary Sciences section, died of a heart attack on September 21, 1998. He was in Utah while on a family trip to visit his daughter. His 70th birthday occurred just 3 weeks before his death. Henry, who was born in Albuquerque, New Mexico, took great pride in having found and visited the small town of Albuquerque in the Extremadura region of Spain, noting the geologic similarities between that part of Spain and his birthplace in America.Henry, known for his contributions to the Apollo,Viking, Magellan, and Mars Pathfinder missions, attributed his career to a chance encounter with Gene Shoemaker in 1960. Henry was completing his Ph.D. work in geology at Stanford University and Gene obviously had spotted Henry's keen analytical mind. I suspect this pivotal meeting was far from a chance encounter.

Boson Stars in the Brans-Dicke Gravitational Theories  

E-print Network

Boson stars consist of a system of self-gravitating scalar fields which form a macroscopic quantum state and are a possible dark matter candidate. In this paper, we address the existence of boson stars in Brans-Dicke gravity. We show that solutions to the equations of motion of a boson star in Brans-Dicke gravity exist for different values of the coupling constant $\\Lambda=\\lambda M_{Pl}^2/4\\pi m^2$, where $\\lambda$ is the quartic coupling, and $m$ the mass of the boson field. We find that there is only a small decrease of a few percent in the mass of these objects when compared to similar solutions based on general relativity. We also consider solutions in the limit as $\\Lambda \\rightarrow\\infty$.

Brans-Dicke theory and the Pioneer anomaly  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Scalar-tensor theory offers the possibility of a modification of Newtonian gravity due to the presence of a 4d scalar dilaton field. The prototypical version of such a theory, massless Brans-Dicke theory, is considered here in the Einstein frame representation. The acceleration of a test mass is obtained from the exact 4d Xanthopoulos-Zannias solutions with spherical symmetry. The deviation of this acceleration from the pure Newtonian gravitational acceleration is examined to see if it can account for the anomalous Pioneer acceleration, while satisfying solar system constraints. Theoretical considerations, along with limits inferred from Pioneer 10 data, suggest that Brans-Dicke gravity could account for no more than a small fraction of the Pioneer anomaly, so that a complete explanation of the anomaly must lie elsewhere.

Nonclassical effects in a highly nonlinear generalized homogeneous Dicke model  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

An intensity dependent nonlinear coupling model of N two-level atoms (generalized Dicke model) interacting dispersively with a bimodal cavity field via two-photon transitions is investigated in a scenario where the rotating wave approximation is assumed. The model becomes homogeneous in the sense that the spin transition frequency is the same for all atoms and the coupling constants emerging from the collective interactions of the atomic system with the cavity field depend only on the particular radiation field mode. This allows us to represent the Dicke Hamiltonian entirely in terms of the total angular momentum J. It is assumed that, initially, the atomic system and the field are in a disentangled state where the field modes are in Glauber coherent states and the atomic system is a superposition of states |JM> (Dicke states). The model is numerically tested against simulations of normal squeezing variance of the field, squeezing factors based on the Heisenberg uncertainty principle, along with the statistical properties of the light leading to the possible production of nonclassical effects, such as degree of second-order coherence in the modes, degree of intermode correlation, as well as violation of the Cauchy-Schwartz inequality. Analytical expression of the total density operator matrix elements at t>0 shows the present nonlinear model to be strongly entangled, which is reflected in the time evolution of the linear entropy, where the superposition states are reduced to statistical mixtures. Thus, the present generalized Dicke model does not preserve the modulus of the Bloch vector. The computations, performed in the weak coupling and strong field limits, were conducted via second-order Dyson perturbative expansion of the time evolution operator matrix elements for the totality of the angular momentum states of the atomic system.

Obituary: Richard L. (Dick) Walker, Jr., 1938-2005  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Dick Walker, 67, died 30 March 2005 in Flagstaff, AZ, following a long illness. He was born on 9 March 1938 in Hampton, Iowa and grew up in Waterloo, Iowa. As a child, Dick was fascinated with astronomy and built his own telescope. He saved his pennies and bought and read every book on the subject he could find. He also raised pigeons, naming four of them Hertzsprung, Hoyle, Gamow, and Kron. In 1957, the year Sputnik was launched, Dick began his college studies at the University of Northern Iowa in Cedar Falls. In 1959, he transferred to the State University of Iowa (subsequently renamed the University of Iowa) in Iowa City, where he earned a BA degree in astronomy and physics in 1963. He joined the staff of the U.S. Naval Observatory in Washington, DC, where he worked in the Time Service Division for a year before his assignment to the Astrometry and Astrophysics Division. Dick relocated to Flagstaff, AZ, in 1966 to continue his Naval Observatory service at the Flagstaff Station. His retirement in May 1999, ended a thirty-six-year career with USNO. Dick was first and foremost an observational astronomer. From the mid 1960s through the late 1970s, much of Dick's time was devoted to the measurement of binary stars, observing with the 12-inch and 26-inch refractors in Washington and later the 40-inch and 61-inch reflectors in Flagstaff. He also made many trips to Lick Observatory to work with the 36-inch Clark Refractor there. During this time he consulted with Charles Worley, who was observing on the 26-inch, to make sure time was well-spent examining doubles that could not be observed in Washington. This period of observing overlapped with the early years of speckle interferometry, and Dick's observations, made with the largest telescope used for micrometry at the time, were very important for ascertaining the veracity of this new technique. He was a studious and very careful observer of doubles and made over 8,000 measures, resulting in almost 3,000 mean positions. While measuring known systems for orbital analysis, he discovered 22 pairs (mostly additional components to these systems) and moving pairs, and his highlighting the rapid motion of these systems resulted in them being placed on many programs and led to the more definitive orbits of today. As a staff member of the Flagstaff Station, Dick was, for over 30 years, one of the principal observers on the 61-inch parallax program. He also ventured into other areas of astronomy, including planetary systems. He is credited with discovering the moon of Saturn, Epimetheus, in December 1966, with the USNO Flagstaff Station 61-inch Kaj Strand Astrometric Reflector. He also obtained photographic plates to determine accurate positions of the outer planets for the Voyager 2 approaches to Uranus in 1986 and Neptune in 1989. It is interesting to note that Dick's career in observational astronomy spanned three different eras of astronomical instrumentation and technique. He began his career doing eyeball astronomy, using a filar micrometer to measure double star separations. Photographic astronomy then became dominant and he took many thousands of plates. During the last ten years of his career, electronic cameras, primarily CCDs, replaced photographic plates. He readily adapted to the changing technologies. A man of many interests, Dick was fascinated by the history of astronomy, especially archeoastronomy, as well as Egyptology. He taught himself the language of hieroglyphics. In 1977, having accumulated several weeks of vacation time, he set off on a trek to walk the Nile for 500 miles from Aswan to Cairo. One night, in the town Asyut along the Nile, he was brought into the police station. The local inhabitants found it hard to credit his story that he was simply on a walk and questioned him as a possible Israeli spy. Following his retirement from the Naval Observatory, Dick consulted in a couple of construction projects. He designed the analemma and the skywalk star fields for the Koch Center for Science, Math, and Technology at Deerfield Academy in Massachusetts. He also c

Obituary: Henry Emil Kandrup, 1955-2003  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Henry Emil Kandrup died on 18 October 2003 at his home in Gainesville Florida. Henry was a theoretical astrophysicist specializing in the application of chaotic dynamics to stellar systems. At the time of his death, Henry was a Professor at the University of Florida where he had taught for 13 years. Henry was born in Manhasset, New York on July 24, 1955 and spent most of his childhood in Great Neck. His parents, Jytte and Fred, were immigrants from Denmark where his father had worked as a silver smith. Henry was a precocious child, skipping both third and fifth grades. With the help of Sidney Spivack, a professor of sociology at Columbia University, his parents enrolled Henry in the Brooks Preparatory School in Andover, Massachusetts. After graduating at age 16, Henry enrolled at Cornell, transferring to Princeton the following year. Henry's parents adored their only child and worked hard to provide him with intellectual opportunities. Henry became an accomplished musician (organ, piano, French horn) and linguist (English, Danish, German) and was a passionate devotee of opera and ballet. Henry received his PhD in 1980 from the University of Chicago, where his thesis advisor was James Ipser. He taught at Oakland University in Michigan and Syracuse University in New York before coming to the University of Florida in 1990. Henry was sui generis. He shunned conventionality in his personal appearance and in his public demeanor, and always chose forthrightness and candor over polite silence. But to those of us who knew Henry well, his bluntness was a reflection of his intellectual consistency. Henry always said exactly what he thought, both in his published work and his public presentations, and never compromised himself for the sake of appearances. Nothing that he said or wrote was less than fully thought out. Henry's PhD thesis was entitled "Stochastic Problems in Stellar Dynamics," and most of his subsequent research was in this field. Motion in stellar systems can be stochastic for three reasons: deflection of trajectories by close encounters; non-integrability of the smoothed-out potential; and an oscillating mean field. Henry made important contributions to our understanding of all three sorts of chaos. In a series of papers from the early 1990's, Henry developed the idea of ``chaotic phase mixing," the process by which an ensemble of points evolves toward a uniform coarse-grained population of phase space. Prior to Henry's work, the evolution of stellar systems to a steady state was attributed loosely to "violent relaxation," defined as phase-space repopulation driven by changes in the smooth potential. Henry pointed out that changes in the gravitational potential do not by themselves constitute relaxation; at best, they can contribute to relaxation by inducing a degree of chaos in the stellar trajectories. But it is the chaos that is responsible for the mixing and hence for the approach to a steady state. Among his other important contributions to stellar dynamics were a formal demonstration of the equivalence of Landau damping and phase mixing, and a proof (with J. F. Sygnet) of the linear stability of a broad class of stellar systems. Shortly before his death, Henry was working on the chaotic dynamics of charged particle beams and on the influence of binary super massive black holes on orbital motion in galaxies. Henry was one of the principle organizers of more than a dozen workshops on non-linear dynamics in astronomy and astrophysics that were held at the University of Florida. At the time of his death, he was negotiating with Springer Verlag over publication of a monograph, Hamiltonian Galactic Dynamics. Henry was famous for the energetic quality of his lectures. Like many other excellent teachers, he drew upon his research to enliven his undergraduate teaching. Under Research Interests, his web site lists "creative utilization of playdough, margaritas, and spirographs in graduate and undergraduate teaching." Henry received numerous teaching citations and awards; he was consiste

Joseph Henry's Conception of Scientific Knowledge  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Joseph Henry, America's premier physicist and physics teacher in the mid-nineteenth century, had decided views of scientific knowledge. These were expressed in two ways. First of all, scientific knowledge led to moral betterment. Thus the study of science was a morally good thing. This was not only because it led to the contemplation of God's creation, which was a standard reason justifying the study of science dating from the Scientific Revolution and even earlier. More importantly, the study of science itself was a moral discipline, imparting to scientists the habits and virtues of truthfulness, respect for others, care and diligence, and the discernment of meaningful patterns from experience. The moral ideals of science were expressed most strongly in Henry's upholding the international "Republic of Science"; conversely, cheapening science was a sign of moral failure. Second, for Henry and his generation, science provided a path to sure truth, separate from falsehood of both the politics and the quackery that characterized mid-century public life. Henry promoted this in his championing of the Smithsonian Institution a scientific establishment, against the ideas of others who wanted to make it a literary establishment or a training school for teachers. For Henry, the Smithsonian's scientific reputation would be established by relying on careful peer review in its publications, and supporting established scientists to write authoritative popular works. The purpose of both these activities was to raise the profile of science in the United States and further establish science and the scientific method as a guide to public life.

Nucleation of vacuum bubbles in Brans-Dicke type theory  

E-print Network

In this paper, we explore the nucleation of vacuum bubbles in the Brans-Dicke type theory of gravity. In the Euclidean signature, we evaluate the fields at the vacuum bubbles as solutions of the Euler-Lagrange equations of motion as well as the bubble nucleation probabilities by integrating the Euclidean action. We illustrate three possible ways to obtain vacuum bubbles: true vacuum bubbles for \\omega>-3/2, false vacuum bubbles for \\omegabubbles for \\omega>-3/2 when the vacuum energy of the false vacuum in the potential of the Einstein frame is less than that of the true vacuum. After the bubble is nucleated at the t=0 surface, we can smoothly interpolate the field combinations to some solutions in the Lorentzian signature and consistently continue their subsequent evolutions. Therefore, we conclude that, in general scalar-tensor theories like this Brans-Dicke type theories, which may include and represent certain features of string theory, vacuum bubbles come in false vacuum bubbles as well as in true vacuum bubbles, as long as a special condition is assumed on the potential.

Frequency comparison of optical lattice clocks beyond the Dick limit  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The supreme accuracy of atomic clocks relies on the universality of atomic transition frequencies. The stability of a clock, meanwhile, measures how quickly the clock's statistical uncertainties are reduced. The ultimate measure of stability is provided by the quantum projection noise, which improves as 1/?N by measuring N uncorrelated atoms. Quantum projection noise limited stabilities have been demonstrated in caesium clocks and in single-ion optical clocks, where the quantum noise overwhelms the Dick effect attributed to local oscillator noise. Here, we demonstrate a synchronous frequency comparison of two optical lattice clocks using 87Sr and 88Sr atoms, respectively, for which the Allan standard deviation reached 1 × 10-17 in an averaging time of 1,600 s by cancelling out the Dick effect to approach the quantum projection noise limit. The scheme demonstrates the advantage of using a large number (N ~ 1,000) of atoms in optical clocks and paves the way to investigating the inherent uncertainties of clocks and relativistic geodesy on a timescale of tens of minutes.

Brans-Dicke corrections to the gravitational Sagnac effect  

E-print Network

The {\\it exact} formulation for the effect of the Brans-Dicke scalar field on the gravitational corrections to the Sagnac delay in the Jordan and Einstein frames is presented for the first time. The results completely agree with the known PPN factors in the weak field region. The calculations also reveal how the Brans-Dicke coupling parameter (appears in various correction terms for different types of source/observer orbits. A first order correction of roughly 2.83 x 10^{-1} fringe shift for visible light is introduced by the gravity-scalar field combination for Earth bound equatorial orbits. It is also demonstrated that the final predictions in the two frames do not differ. The effect of the scalar field on the geodetic and Lense-Thirring precession of a spherical gyroscope in circular polar orbit around the Earth is also computed with an eye towards the Stanford Gravity Probe-B experiment currently in progress. The feasibility of optical and matter-wave interferometric measurements is discussed briefly.

Experimental Quantum Networking Protocols via Four-Qubit Hyperentangled Dicke States

We report the experimental demonstration of two quantum networking protocols, namely quantum 1?3 telecloning and open-destination teleportation, implemented using a four-qubit register whose state is encoded in a high-quality two-photon hyperentangled Dicke state. The state resource is characterized using criteria based on multipartite entanglement witnesses. We explore the characteristic entanglement-sharing structure of a Dicke state by implementing high-fidelity projections of the four-qubit resource onto lower-dimensional states. Our work demonstrates for the first time the usefulness of Dicke states for quantum information processing.

Contaminant Monitoring Strategy for Henrys Lake, Idaho  

SciTech Connect

Henrys Lake, located in southeastern Idaho, is a large, shallow lake (6,600 acres, {approx} 17.1 feet maximum depth) located at 6,472 feet elevation in Fremont Co., Idaho at the headwaters of the Henrys Fork of the Snake River. The upper watershed is comprised of high mountains of the Targhee National Forest and the lakeshore is surrounded by extensive flats and wetlands, which are mostly privately owned. The lake has been dammed since 1922, and the upper 12 feet of the lake waters are allocated for downriver use. Henrys Lake is a naturally productive lake supporting a nationally recognized ''Blue Ribbon'' trout fishery. There is concern that increasing housing development and cattle grazing may accelerate eutrophication and result in winter and early spring fish kills. There has not been a recent thorough assessment of lake water quality. However, the Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) is currently conducting a study of water quality on Henrys Lake and tributary streams. Septic systems and lawn runoff from housing developments on the north, west, and southwest shores could potentially contribute to the nutrient enrichment of the lake. Many houses are on steep hillsides where runoff from lawns, driveways, etc. drain into wetland flats along the lake or directly into the lake. In addition, seepage from septic systems (drainfields) drain directly into the wetlands enter groundwater areas that seep into the lake. Cattle grazing along the lake margin, riparian areas, and uplands is likely accelerating erosion and nutrient enrichment. Also, cattle grazing along riparian areas likely adds to nutrient enrichment of the lake through subsurface flow and direct runoff. Stream bank and lakeshore erosion may also accelerate eutrophication by increasing the sedimentation of the lake. Approximately nine streams feed the lake (see map), but flows are often severely reduced or completely eliminated due to irrigation diversion. In addition, subsurface flows can occur as a result of severe cattle grazing along riparian areas and deltas. Groundwater and springs also feed the lake, and are likely critical for oxygen supply during winter stratification. During the winter of 1991, Henrys Lake experienced low dissolved oxygen levels resulting in large fish kills. It is thought that thick ice cover combined with an increase in nutrient loads created conditions resulting in poor water quality. The Idaho Department of Health and Welfare, DEQ is currently conducting a study to determine the water quality of Henrys Lake, the sources contributing to its deterioration, and potential remedial actions to correct problem areas.

Generalized ghost dark energy in Brans-Dicke theory  

E-print Network

It was argued that the vacuum energy of the Veneziano ghost field of QCD, in a time-dependent background, can be written in the general form, $H + O(H^2)$, where $H$ is the Hubble parameter. Based on this, a phenomenological dark energy model whose energy density is of the form $\\rho=\\alpha H+\\beta H^{2}$ was recently proposed to explain the dark energy dominated universe. In this paper, we investigate this generalized ghost dark energy model in the setup of Brans-Dicke cosmology. We study the cosmological implications of this model. In particular, we obtain the equation of state and the deceleration parameters and a differential equation governing the evolution of this dark energy model. It is shown that the equation of state parameter of the generalized ghost dark energy can cross the phantom line ($w_D=-1$) in some range of the parameters spaces.

Dynamical evolution of boson stars in Brans-Dicke theory  

E-print Network

We study the dynamics of a self-gravitating scalar field solitonic object (boson star) in the Jordan-Brans-Dicke (BD) theory of gravity. We show dynamical processes of this system such as (i) black hole formation of perturbed equilibrium configuration on an unstable branch; (ii) migration of perturbed equilibrium configuration from the unstable branch to stable branch; (iii) transition from excited state to a ground state. We find that the dynamical behavior of boson stars in BD theory is quite similar to that in general relativity (GR), with comparable scalar wave emission. We also demonstrate the formation of a stable boson star from a Gaussian scalar field packet with flat gravitational scalar field initial data. This suggests that boson stars can be formed in the BD theory in much the same way as in GR.

Magnetic Branes in Brans-Dicke-Maxwell Theory  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We present a new class of magnetic brane solutions in ( n+1)-dimensional Brans-Dicke-Maxwell theory in the presence of a quadratic potential for the scalar field. These solutions are neither asymptotically flat nor (anti)-de Sitter. Our strategy for constructing these solutions is applying a conformal transformation to the corresponding solutions in dilaton gravity. This class of solutions represents a spacetime with a longitudinal magnetic field generated by a static brane. They have no curvature singularity and no horizons but have a conic geometry with a deficit angle ?. We generalize this class of solutions to the case of spinning magnetic brane with all rotation parameters. We also use the counterterm method and calculate the conserved quantities of the solutions.

Magnetized chameleonic Brans-Dicke cosmology and phase space analysis  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

This paper deals with the study of dynamical or phase space analysis of Bianchi I universe in Brans-Dicke gravity with chameleon scalar field. For this purpose, the matter contents are taken to be perfect fluid with magnetic field effects described by the non-linear Maxwell Lagrangian density. By taking some ansatz for the field potential and the interaction function in chameleon cosmology, we discuss three cases: Bianchi I universe with perfect fluid, FRW universe with magnetized perfect fluid and Bianchi I universe with magnetized perfect fluid. In all cases, we calculate fixed or critical points and discuss stability of the respective configuration for radiation as well as matter dominated eras. We also evaluate some cosmological parameters in each case for matter dominated era only and investigate their cosmological implications.

SciTech Connect

Henry's law constants were predicted from the ratio of the liquid (or subcooled liquid) vapor pressure and aqueous solubility for each polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB) congener. The liquid vapor pressures and aqueous solubilities were derived for each PCB congener by using correlations of Gibbs' free energy of vaporization against gas-liquid chromatographic retention indexes and Gibbs' free energy of solubilization of a liquid against molecular surface area. The predicted values were in fair agreement with experimental values, and the error for these constants was estimated to be a factor of 5 in the temperature range 0.0-40.0 /sup 0/C. For the PCB congeners, Henry's law constants were independent of molecular weight and increased approximately an order of magnitude with a 25.0 /sup 0/C increase in temperature. The average value for Henry's law constants and air-water partition coefficients for the Aroclor PCB mixtures were approximately 4.0 x 10/sup -4/ atm.m/sup 3//mol at 25.0 /sup 0/C.

Modulation of JB6 Mouse Epidermal Cell Transformation Response by the Prostaglandin F2 Alpha Receptor  

SciTech Connect

Prostaglandin F2a (PGF2a) has been associated with the modulation of clonal selection processes in the mouse skin model of carcinogenesis. We have investigated whether JB6 mouse epidermal cells express a functional PGF2a receptor (FP) coupled to the regulation of anchorage-dependent and -independent growth. Treatment of JB6 cells with a FP receptor ligand (fluprostenol) potently (pM-nM) increased anchorage-dependent and -independent growth, as determined by a battery of in vitro assays. Treatment of JB6 cells with PGF2a and fluprostenol increased inositol phospholipid accumulation and extracellular signal regulated kinase (ERK) activity, consistent with FP receptor-related signaling. FP receptor mRNA was detected by reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction and a radiolabel binding assay determined the average specific [3H]PGF2a binding to be 8.25 + 0.95 fmol/mg protein. Treatment of cells with fluprostenol as a single exposure resulted in a significant increase in anchorage-dependent and -independent growth in media containing low (0.1-0.5%), but not high (5%) concentrations of fetal bovine serum (FBS). In contrast, treatment of cells with fluprostenol at two day intervals resulted in a more robust growth response under anchorage-dependent conditions only in media containing low FBS concentrations; and under anchorage-independent conditions only in media containing high FBS concentrations. ERK activation and colony size were increased by cotreatment of JB6 cells with EGF and fluprostenol to a greater extent than either treatment alone, while the cotreatment effect on colony number appeared to be simply additive. In summary, FBS concentration and signal oscillation exert pronounced effects on the biological response to a FP receptor agonist. The data raise the possibility that the FP receptor may independently contribute to clonal selection processes, but may play a more important role as a response modifier.

Holographic Dark Energy in Brans-Dicke Theory  

E-print Network

In this paper, the holographic dark energy model is considered in Brans-Dicke theory where the holographic dark energy density $\\rho_{\\Lambda} =3c^2 M^{2}_{pl} L^{-2}$ is replaced with $\\rho_{h}=3c^2 \\Phi(t)L^{-2}$. Here $\\Phi(t)=\\frac{1}{8\\pi G}$ is a time variable Newton constant. With this replacement, it is found that no accelerated expansion universe will be achieved when the Hubble horizon is taken as the role of IR cut-off. When the event horizon is adopted as the IR cut-off, an accelerated expansion universe is obtained. In this case, the equation of state of holographic dark energy $w_h$ takes a modified form $w_h=-{1/3}(1+\\alpha+\\frac{2}{c}\\sqrt{\\Omega_{h}})$. In the limit $\\alpha\\to 0$, the 'standard' holographic dark energy is recovered. In the holographic dark energy dominated epoch, power-law and de Sitter time-space solutions are obtained.

Professor Henry, Mr. Faraday, and the Hunt for Electromagnetic Induction  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

On different sides of the Atlantic but about the same time, Michael Faraday and Joseph Henry announced success in a quest that had preoccupied the scientific community for a decade: coaxing electricity from magnetism. "Mutual induction," what Faraday and Henry had identified in the early 1830s, would turn out to be not only a foundational concept in the physics of electricity and magnetism but also the principle behind the technology of electrical transformers and generators--two mainstays of industrialization. Although Faraday's breakthrough in London and Henry's in Albany might appear to be classic examples of "independent discovery," they were not. The two natural philosophers shared a similar orientation toward their research and, moreover, a distinctive laboratory instrument: Henry's new, powerful electromagnet. Thus, the story of Henry's and Faraday's search for induction illuminates not only the workings of Victorian science but also the crucial part that an instrument--the unadorned hardware--can play in scientific inquiry. Albert Moyer takes this story from his biography of Joseph Henry that Smithsonian Institution Press is about to publish in commemoration of the 200th anniversary of Henry's birth. The biography focuses on Henry's early and middle years, 1797-1847, from his emergence as America's foremost physical scientist to his election as the Smithsonian Institution's first director.

Dicke-type phase transition in a spin-orbit-coupled Bose-Einstein condensate.  

PubMed

Spin-orbit-coupled Bose-Einstein condensates (BECs) provide a powerful tool to investigate interesting gauge field-related phenomena. Here we study the ground state properties of such a system and show that it can be mapped to the well-known Dicke model in quantum optics, which describes the interactions between an ensemble of atoms and an optical field. A central prediction of the Dicke model is a quantum phase transition between a superradiant phase and a normal phase. We detect this transition in a spin-orbit-coupled BEC by measuring various physical quantities across the phase transition. These quantities include the spin polarization, the relative occupation of the nearly degenerate single-particle states, the quantity analogous to the photon field occupation and the period of a collective oscillation (quadrupole mode). The applicability of the Dicke model to spin-orbit-coupled BECs may lead to interesting applications in quantum optics and quantum information science. PMID:24895055

Thermodynamical Behaviors of Nonflat Brans-Dicke Gravity with Interacting New Agegraphic Dark Energy  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The dynamical behaviors of Brans-Dicke gravity with the interacting new agegraphic dark energy (NADE) model are studied in this paper. First of all, by considering the dark energy density ?de = 3n2??-2, the evolutions of the equation of state and the deceleration parameter can be described in the framework of Friedmann-Robertson-Walker universe. Moreover, the field equations of the Brans-Dicke gravity can be cast to the form of the first law of thermodynamics with the so-called entropy production term d˜ {S}. Furthermore, the generalized second law of thermodynamics can be given in nonflat Brans-Dicke gravity with the interacting NADE enclosed by the dynamical apparent horizon with Hawking temperature. Finally, when the interaction between NADE and dark matter is considered as a fluctuation around the thermal equilibrium, it can be written to a form of logarithmic correction, and the expression of the interaction term can be obtained.

Vacuum energy and Primordial Black Holes in Brans-Dicke Theory  

E-print Network

In our work, we study the evolution of primordial black holes within the context of Brans-Dicke theory by assuming present universe as vacuum dominated. We also consider the accretion of radiation, matter and vacuum energy only during respective dominant periods. From our study, we found that the accretion rate is slower in both radiation and vacuum energy dominated eras in Brans-Dicke theory in comparision with General Theory of Relativity. Thus the PBHs evaporate at a faster rate in Brans-Dicke theory than Standard Cosmology, if we consider the presence of vacuum energy in both cases. We also find that vacuum energy accretion efficiency should be less than 0.61.

Dark Matter Haloes and Rotation Curves via Brans-Dicke Theory  

E-print Network

In the present work, the Brans-Dicke (BD) theory of gravity is taken as a possible theory of k-essence. Then starting with the (already known) Brans-Dicke-Schwarzschild solution which can represent the gravitationally bound static configurations of the BD scalar k-essence, issues like whether these configurations can reproduce the observed properties of galactic dark matter haloes have been addressed. It has been realized that indeed the BD scalar k-essence can cluster into dark matter halo-like objects with flattened rotation curves while exhibiting a dark energy-like negative pressure on larger scales.

Vacuum Energy Accretion and Primordial Black Holes in Brans-Dicke theory  

E-print Network

In this paper, we investigate the evolution of primordial black hole (PBH) in vacuum-dominated era within Brans-Dicke cosmology. We consider the accretion of vacuum energy by PBHs and found that vacuum energy accretion efficiency should be less than 0.61. We also study the evaporation of PBHs where we conclude that larger the value of accretion efficiency longer live the PBHs. We also find that PBHs evaporate at a quicker rate in Brans-Dicke theory compared with Standard Cosmology.

{gamma} parameter and Solar System constraint in chameleon-Brans-Dicke theory  

SciTech Connect

The post Newtonian parameter is considered in the chameleon-Brans-Dicke model. In the first step, the general form of this parameter and also effective gravitational constant is obtained. An arbitrary function for f({Phi}), which indicates the coupling between matter and scalar field, is introduced to investigate validity of solar system constraint. It is shown that the chameleon-Brans-Dicke model can satisfy the solar system constraint and gives us an {omega} parameter of order 10{sup 4}, which is in comparable to the constraint which has been indicated in [19].

Obituary: Henry Albers (1925-2009)  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Henry Albers, professor of astronomy at Vassar College for over thirty years, died March 29, 2009, in Fairhope, Alabama. For his work at Vassar, where he held the Maria Mitchell Chair, Albers received the first Maria Mitchell Women in Science Award for his inspiration of women astronomers. He said "In the final analysis it is the students who bring the joy into teaching." As a professional astronomer, Albers did observational work on Galactic structure in the southern Milky Way, and on the structure of the Magellanic Clouds. In retirement, Albers published Maria Mitchell - A Life in Journals and Letters, the firsthand account of America's first woman astronomer. Albers's research was on photographic near-infrared spectroscopy of red giant stars in the southern Milky Way, some proper motion studies, and on the structure of the Magellanic Clouds. A series of seven NSF grants supported his six trips to Chile to make spectroscopic observations, as well as his sabbatical collaborations at Minnesota, Leiden, and the Royal Observatory in Edinburgh. Henry Albers arrived at Vassar in 1958, to find an astronomy program that had been recently absorbed by the physics department, and that was suffering neglect after the retirement of Maud Makemson. For the next 31 years, with incredible energy -- he sometimes taught seven courses a year -- he built the astronomy program into one double in size (from one to two tenure lines), whose th century facilities have been replaced with a st century observatory. For a remarkable stretch of 20-some-years, Albers and physicist Bob Stearns, with considerable grace, alternated chairmanship of the joint department of physics and astronomy. Henry Albers was a devoted citizen of Vassar College and an enthusiastic participant in the process of faculty governance at that institution. He would have been the first to concede that his enthusiasm was sometimes excessive, and that his contributions at faculty meetings occasionally failed to move the discussion forward. Before more than one meeting, he was known to make a note to himself on his copy of the agenda, which read, in large block letters: "shut up." Fortunately, Albers was seldom able to repress his concern for the College or his dedication to its improvement. He served on all major committees and most minor ones as well. For example, he chaired a committee that eventually got telephones in faculty offices, another that lobbied for establishment of an academic computing center, and another that constructed Vassar's system of post-tenure review of senior faculty. It was Henry Albers who introduced the motion on the floor of the faculty, which passed by a vote of 100 to 2, moving that Vassar College accept coeducation. Albers was a caring mentor and although fundamentally compassionate, had a somewhat prankish sense of humor - unfailingly directed at the most pompous targets in sight. Although deeply dedicated to the College, Albers had an admirable ability to disengage from his life at Vassar. He regularly spent college breaks as the resident astronomer on cruise ships. Every May, he would celebrate his last class by sharing a jug of wine in the faculty commons with his regular lunchtime group. After retiring in 1989, he continued his hobbies of gardening, painting, and choral singing, but also immediately began work as a math and science volunteer in the local public schools on Cape Cod. He completed his final scholarly project, his edition of the Letters and Journals of Maria Mitchell, in 2002.

Henry Norris Russell and the Expanding Universe  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Henry Norris Russell, one of the most influential American astronomers of the first half of the 20th Century, had a special place in his heart for the Lowell Observatory. Although privately critical of the founder for his pronouncements about life on Mars and the superiority of the Mars Hill observing site, he always supported the Observatory in public and professional circles. He staunchly supported Tombaugh's detection of a planet as leading from Lowell's prediction, and always promoted V. M. Slipher's spectroscopic investigations of planetary and stellar phenomena. But how did he react to Slipher's puzzling detection of the extreme radial velocities of spiral nebulae starting in 1912, and how did he regard the extension and interpretation of those observations by Hubble and others in following decades? Here we describe the arc of Russell's reactions, dating from Slipher's first detection, as an indicator of how mainstream stellar astronomers reacted to the concept of an expanding universe.

Reconstruction of New Holographic Scalar Field Models of Dark Energy in Brans-Dicke Universe  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Motivated by the work: K. Karami and J. Fehri, Phys. Lett. B 684, 61 (2010) and A. Sheykhi, Phys. Lett. B 681, 205 (2009), we generalize their work to the new holographic dark energy model with ? D = (3? 2)/(4? )(? H2+? ? {H}) in the framework of Brans-Dicke cosmology. Concretely, we study the correspondence between the quintessence, tachyon, K-essence, dilaton scalar field and Chaplygin gas model with the new holographic dark energy model in the non-flat Brans-Dicke universe. Furthermore, we reconstruct the potentials and dynamics for these models. By analysis we can show that for new holographic quintessence and Chaplygin gas models, if the related parameters to the potentials satisfy some constraints, the accelerated expansion can be achieved in Brans-Dicke cosmology. In particular, the counterparts of fields and potentials in general relativity can describe accelerated expansion of the universe. It is worth stressing that not only can we give some new results in the framework of Brans-Dicke cosmology, but also the previous results of the new holographic dark energy in Einstein gravity can be included as special cases given by us.

Effect of substrate Henry's constant on biofilter performance.  

PubMed

Butanol, ether, toluene, and hexane, which have Henry's constants ranging from 0.0005 to 53, were used to investigate the effects of substrate solubility or availability on the removal of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in trickle-bed biofilters. Results from this study suggest that, although removal of a VOC generally increases with a decrease in its Henry's constant, an optimal Henry's constant range for biofiltration may exist. For the treatment of VOCs with high Henry's constant values, such as hexane and toluene, the transfer of VOCs between the vapor and liquid phases or between the vapor phase and the biofilm is a rate-determining step. However, oxygen (O2) transfer may become a rate-limiting step in treating VOCs with low Henry's constants, such as butanol, especially at high organic loadings. The results demonstrated that in a gas-phase aerobic biofilter, nitrate can serve both as a growth-controlling nutrient and as an electron acceptor in a biofilm for the respiration of VOCs with low Henry's constants. Microbial communities within the biofilters were examined using denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis to provide a more complete picture of the effect of O2 limitation and denitrification on biofilter performance.

James Paget Henry--a retrospective.  

PubMed

James Paget Henry really began his productive research career at the outset of the second world war. His studies of acceleration and the anoxia of high altitude were supported by the development of then new techniques of measuring and recording critical physiologic parameters such as vascular pressures, respiratory functions and haemoglobin saturation. His inquisitive mind made productive use of the instruments that had to be made by skilled instrument makers working in university shops. Much of this instrumentation has now found its way into the clinical arena where it is now the main armamentarium of cardiac diagnostic and respiratory function laboratories. His work in the space program preceeded that of the Russians but did not get recognition until Sputnik awakened the world to the possibilities of space flight. His development of the concept of a cardiovascular basis for fluid volume control and the supportive investigative work undertaken constitute a milestone in the annals of experimental physiology. The chimpanzees used in Project Mercury were found to be hypertensive which was related to the method of capture used by the commercial suppliers. This lead Jim to study the effect of early experience on resting blood pressure, an effort that soon developed into provocative studies of the biological basis of the stress response. PMID:9401600

A New Empirical Thermospheric Density Model JB2006 using New Solar Indices  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

A new empirical atmospheric density model is developed using the CIRA72 (Jacchia 71) model as the basis for the diffusion equations. New solar indices based on orbit based sensor data are used for the solar irradiances in the extreme and far ultraviolet wavelengths. New exospheric temperature and semiannual density equations are employed to represent the major thermospheric density variations. Temperature correction equations are also developed for diurnal and latitudinal effects, and finally density correction factors are used for model corrections required at high altitude (1500-4000 km). The new model, Jacchia-Bowman 2006, is validated through comparisons of accurate daily density drag data previously computed for numerous satellite. For 400 km altitude the standard deviation of 16% for the standard Jacchia model is reduced to 10% for the new JB2006 model for periods of low geomagnetic storm activity.

Applicability of Henry's Law to helium solubility in olivine  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Applicability of Henry's Law to helium solubility in olivine We have experimentally determined helium solubility in San Carlos olivine across a range of helium partial pressures (PHe) with the goal of quantifying how noble gases behave during partial melting of peridotite. Helium solubility in olivine correlates linearly with PHe between 55 and 1680 bar. This linear relationship suggests Henry's Law is applicable to helium dissolution into olivine up to 1680 bar PHe, providing a basis for extrapolation of solubility relationships determined at high PHe to natural systems. This is the first demonstration of Henry's Law for helium dissolution into olivine. Averaging all the data of the PHe series yields a Henry's coefficient of 3.8(×3.1)×10-12 mol g-1 bar-1. However, the population of Henry's coefficients shows a positive skew (skewness = 1.17), i.e. the data are skewed to higher values. This skew is reflected in the large standard deviation of the population of Henry's coefficients. Averaging the median values from each experiment yields a lower Henry's coefficient and standard deviation: 3.2(× 2.3)×10-12 mol g-1 bar-1. Combining the presently determined helium Henry's coefficient for olivine with previous determinations of helium Henry's coefficients for basaltic melts (e.g. 1) yields a partition coefficient of ~10-4. This value is similar to previous determinations obtained at higher PHe (2). The applicability of Henry's Law here suggests helium is incorporated onto relatively abundant sites within olivine that are not saturated by 1680 bar PHe or ~5×10-9 mol g-1. Large radius vacancies, i.e. oxygen vacancies, are energetically favorable sites for noble gas dissolution (3). However, oxygen vacancies are not abundant enough in San Carlos olivine to account for this solubility (e.g. 4), suggesting the 3x10-12 mol g-1 bar-1 Henry's coefficient is associated with interstitial dissolution of helium. Helium was dissolved into olivine using an externally heated pressure vessel (Brown University). The starting materials were prepared by cutting gem-quality San Carlos olivine (~Fo90) into small blocks (~4×2×1 mm) using a diamond wafering blade saw and polishing with alumina slurries and colloidal silica. Analysis was completed by laser ablation-mass spectrometry using a 193 nm excimer laser and a MAP 215-50 specifically tuned for He (Open University, UK). Laser ablation pit depth varied from 2 to 40 ?m, and no correlation between pit depth and [He] is observed after accounting for variations PHe across the different experiments. This lack of correlation indicates a close approach to equilibrium was achieved over the experimental durations. Two analyses yielded spuriously high [He] (>3 std. dev. from the population mean, n = 85), and these analyses were not used to calculate Henry's coefficients. The two spuriously high analyses, in combination with the right skew of Henry's coefficients calculated from individual data points, suggests gem-quality San Carlos olivine contains volumes with anomalously high helium solubility. The nature of these volumes is currently under investigation. However, despite their presence, helium is still highly incompatible in olivine during partial melting. [1] Lux GCA 1987 [2] Heber et al.

Uniqueness of the Machian Solution in the Brans-Dicke Theory  

E-print Network

Machian solutions of which the scalar field exhibits the asymptotic behavior $\\phi =O(\\rho /\\omega)$ are generally explored for the homogeneous and isotropic universe in the Brans-Dicke theory. It is shown that the Machian solution is unique for the closed and the open space. Such a solution is restricted to one that satisfies the relation $GM/c^{2}a=const$, which is fixed to $\\pi $ in the theory for the closed model. Another type of solution satisfying $\\phi =O(\\rho /\\omega)$ with the arbitrary coupling constant $% \\omega $ is obtained for the flat space. This solution has the scalar field $% \\phi \\propto \\rho t^{2}$ and also keeps the relation $GM/c^{2}R=const$ all the time. This Machian relation and the asymptotic behavior $\\phi =O(\\rho /\\omega)$ is equivalent to each other in the Brans-Dicke theory.

Delocalized single-photon Dicke states and the Leggett-Garg inequality in solid state systems  

PubMed Central

We show how to realize a single-photon Dicke state in a large one-dimensional array of two-level systems, and discuss how to test its quantum properties. The realization of single-photon Dicke states relies on the cooperative nature of the interaction between a field reservoir and an array of two-level-emitters. The resulting dynamics of the delocalized state can display Rabi-like oscillations when the number of two-level emitters exceeds several hundred. In this case, the large array of emitters is essentially behaving like a “mirror-less cavity”. We outline how this might be realized using a multiple-quantum-well structure or a dc-SQUID array coupled to a transmission line, and discuss how the quantum nature of these oscillations could be tested with an extension of the Leggett-Garg inequality.

Observation of Dicke superradiance for two artificial atoms in a cavity with high decay rate.  

PubMed

An individual excited two-level system decays to its ground state in a process known as spontaneous emission. The probability of detecting the emitted photon decreases exponentially with the time passed since its excitation. In 1954, Dicke first considered the more subtle situation in which two emitters decay in close proximity to each other. He argued that the emission dynamics of a single two-level system is altered by the presence of a second one, even if it is in its ground state. Here, we present a close to ideal realization of Dicke's original two-spin Gedankenexperiment, using a system of two individually controllable superconducting qubits weakly coupled to a fast decaying microwave cavity. The two-emitter case of superradiance is explicitly demonstrated both in time-resolved measurements of the emitted power and by fully reconstructing the density matrix of the emitted field in the photon number basis.

Implementation of the Dicke lattice model in hybrid quantum system arrays  

E-print Network

Generalized Dicke models can be implemented in hybrid quantum systems built from ensembles of nitrogen-vacancy (NV) centers in diamond coupled to superconducting microwave cavities. By engineering cavity assisted Raman transitions between two spin states of the NV defect, a fully tunable model for collective light-matter interactions in the ultra-strong coupling limit can be obtained. Our analysis of the resulting non-equilibrium phases for a single cavity and for coupled cavity arrays shows that different superradiant phase transitions can be observed using existing experimental technologies, even in the presence of large inhomogeneous broadening of the spin ensemble. The phase diagram of the Dicke lattice model displays distinct features induced by dissipation, which can serve as a genuine experimental signature for phase transitions in driven open quantum systems.

Hamiltonian formulation of Palatini f(R) theories a la Brans-Dicke theory  

SciTech Connect

We study the Hamiltonian formulation of f(R) theories of gravity both in metric and in Palatini formalism using their classical equivalence with Brans-Dicke theories with a nontrivial potential. The Palatini case, which corresponds to the {omega}=-3/2 Brans-Dicke theory, requires special attention because of new constraints associated with the scalar field, which is nondynamical. We derive, compare, and discuss the constraints and evolution equations for the {omega}=-3/2 and {omega}{ne}-3/2 cases. Based on the properties of the constraint and evolution equations, we find that, contrary to certain claims in the literature, the Cauchy problem for the {omega}=-3/2 case is well formulated and there is no reason to believe that it is not well posed in general.

Quantum Phase Transitions of Light in the Dicke-Bose-Hubbard model  

E-print Network

We extend the idea of quantum phase transitions of light in atom-photon system with Dicke-Bose-Hubbard model for arbitrary number of two-level atoms. The formulations of eigenenergies, effective Rabi frequencies, and critical chemical potentials for two atoms are derived. With a self-consistent method, we obtain a complete phase diagram for two two-level atoms on resonance, which indicates the transition from Mott insulator to superfluidity and with a mean excitations diagram for confirmation. We illustrate the generality of the method by constructing the dressed-state basis for arbitrary number of two-level atoms. In addition, we show that the Mott insulator lobes in the phase diagrams will smash out with the increase of atom numbers. The results of this work provide a step for studying the effects with combinations of Dicke-like and Hubbard-like models to simulate strongly correlated electron systems using photons.

Functional integral approach to a full Dicke model with nearest-neighbour interaction  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We discuss a possible phase transition in a full Dicke model that allows a local excitation in a two-level system to migrate to the nearest-neighbour sites. This model is found to be singular in the sense that a conventional scheme to handle a Dicke model with a generic interaction is not applicable. We thus begin with devising an appropriate method for the present model, and then evaluate a partition function associated with the model within a framework of imaginary time functional integral method. Through the stationary phase analysis of the partition function, we show that a condensation of a coupling mode of two degrees of freedom that constitute the model, photon and the local excitation, would occur. The result demonstrates contrasting features of the phase, depending on the sign of the migration term. A connection of our findings with an experimental realization, Frenkel exciton polariton condensation in an organic dye aggregate, is pointed out.

Exact Kantowski-Sachs Anisotropic Dark Energy Cosmological Models in Brans Dicke Theory of Gravitation  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The main purpose of this paper is to explore the solution of Exact Kantowski-Sach cosmological models by using the Brans Dicke Theory of gravitation in the background of anisotropic dark energy. In order to obtain different physically variable models of the universe we have assumed the special law of variation of Hubbles parameter proposed by Berman (Nuovo Cimento B 74:182, 1983) which yields constant deceleration parameter and power law relation between average scale factor R and scalar field f, which has already been used by Johri and Desikan in RW Brans Dicke models. Some physical and geometrical consequences of the models have been carried out by using some physical quantities.

Holographic dark energy in Brans-Dicke cosmology with Granda-Oliveros cut-off  

E-print Network

Motivated by the recent works of one of us [1,2] we study the holographic dark energy in Brans-Dicke gravity with the Granda-Oliveros cut-off proposed recently in literature. We find out that when the present model is combined with Brans-Dicke field the transition from normal state where $w_D >-1 $ to the phantom regime where $w_D dark energy can be more easily achieved for than when resort to the Einstein field equations is made. Furthermore, the phantom crossing is more easily achieved when the matter and the holographic dark energy undergo an exotic interaction. We also calculate some relevant cosmological parameters and their evolution.

Stellar explosion in the weak field approximation of the Brans-Dicke theory  

E-print Network

We treat a very crude model of an exploding star, in the weak field approximation of the Brans-Dicke theory, in a scenario that resembles some characteristics data of a Type Ia Supernova. The most noticeable feature, in the electromagnetic component, is the relationship between the absolute magnitude at maximum brightness of the star and the decline rate in one magnitude from that maximum. This characteristic has become one of the most accurate method to measure luminosity distances to objects at cosmological distances. An interesting result is that the active mass associated with the scalar field is totally radiated to infinity, representing a mass loss in the ratio of the "tensor" component to the scalar component of 1 to $(2 \\omega + 3)$ ($\\omega$ is the Brans-Dicke parameter), in agreement with a general result of Hawking. Then, this model shows explicitly, in a dynamical case, the mechanism of radiation of scalar field, which is necessary to understand the Hawking result.

Constraining Red-shift Parametrization Parameters in Brans-Dicke Theory: Evolution of Open Confidence Contours  

E-print Network

In Brans Dicke theory of gravity, from the nature of the scalar field-potential considered, the dark energy, dark matter, radiation densities predicted by different observations and the closedness of the universe considered, we can fix our $\\omega_{BD}$, the Brans Dicke parameter, keeping only the thing in mind that from different solar system constrains it must be greater than $5\\times 10^{5}$. Once we have a value, satisfying the required lower boundary, in our hand we proceed for setting unknown parameters of the different dark energy models' EoS parameter. In this paper we work with three well known red shift parametrizations of dark energy EoS. To constrain their free parameters for Brans Dicke theory of gravity we take twelve point red shift vs Hubble's parameter data and perform $\\chi^{2}$ test. We present the observational data analysis mechanism for Stern, Stern+BAO and Stern+BAO+CMB observations. Minimising $\\chi^2$, we obtain the best fit values and draw different confidence contours. We analyze the contours physically. Also we examine the best fit of distance modulus for our theoretical models and the Supernovae Type Ia Union2 sample. For Brans Dicke theory of gravity the difference from the mainstream confidence contouring method of data analysis id that the confidence contours evolved are not at all closed contours like a circle or a ellipse. Rather they are found to be open contours allowing the free parameters to float inside a infinite region of parameter space. However, negative EoSs are likely to evolve from the best fit values.

The feedback creates an infinite sequence of non-equilibrium phases with fixed points and limit cycles in the primary superradiant regime.

Excited-state phase transition leading to symmetry-breaking steady states in the Dicke model  

E-print Network

We study the phase diagram of the Dicke model in terms of the excitation energy and the radiation-matter coupling constant $\\lambda$. Below a certain critical value $\\lambda_c$ of the coupling constant $\\lambda$ all the energy levels have a well-defined parity. For $\\lambda > \\lambda_c$ the energy spectrum exhibits two different phases separated by a critical energy $E_c$ that proves to be independent of $\\lambda$. In the upper phase, the energy levels have also a well defined parity, but below $E_c$ the energy levels are doubly degenerated. We show that the long-time behavior of appropriate parity-breaking observables distinguishes between the different phases of the energy spectrum of the Dicke model. Steady states reached from symmetry-breaking initial conditions restore the symmetry only if their expected energies are above the critical. This fact makes it possible to experimentally explore the complete phase diagram of the excitation spectrum of the Dicke model.

Phosphorylation of heat shock protein 40 (Hsp40/DnaJB1) by mitogen-activated protein kinase-activated protein kinase 5 (MK5/PRAK).  

PubMed

Heat shock protein 40 (Hsp40) acts as a co-chaperone with Hsp70 to promote protein folding, protein transport and degradation. The human Hsp40 family contains more than 40 members, some of which can exist as phosphoproteins in the cell. However, little is known about the protein kinases responsible for their phosphorylation and the functional relevance of this post-translational modification remains elusive. Here we show that Hsp40/DnaJB1 is an in vitro and in vivo substrate for the mitogen-activated protein kinase-activated protein kinase 5 (MK5). MK5 and Hsp40/DnaJB1 form complexes in cells and this interaction is accomplished by the C-terminal regions of both proteins. MK5 can phosphorylate Hsp40/DnaJB1 at several residues in vitro. Studies with specific phosphoantibodies indicate that MK5 phosphorylates Hsp40/DnaJB1 in vivo at Ser-149 or/and Ser-151 and Ser-171 in the C-terminal domain of Hsp40/DnaJB1. MK5 modestly stimulates the ATP hydrolyse activity of Hsp40/Hsp70 complex and enhances the repression of heat shock factor 1 driven transcription by Hsp40/DnaJB1. PMID:24309468

Calmodulin Involvement in Stress-Activated Nuclear Localization of Albumin in JB6 Epithelial Cells.  

SciTech Connect

We report that in response to oxidative stress, albumin is translocated to the nucleus where it binds in concert with known transcription factors to an antioxidant response element (ARE), which controls the expression of glutathione-S-transferase and other antioxidant enzymes, functioning to mediate adaptive cellular responses. To investigate the mechanisms underlying this adaptive cell response, we have identified linkages between calcium signaling and the nuclear translocation of albumin in JB6 epithelial cells. Under resting conditions, albumin and the calcium regulatory protein, calmodulin (CaM), co-immunoprecipitate using antibodies against either protein, indicating a tight association. Calcium activation of CaM disrupts the association between CaM and albumin, suggesting that transient increases in cytosolic calcium levels function to mobilize intracellular albumin to facilitate its translocation into the nucleus. Likewise, nuclear translocation of albumin is induced by exposure of cells to hydrogen peroxide or a phorbol ester, indicating a functional linkage between reactive oxygen species, calcium, and PKC-signaling pathways. Inclusion of an antioxidant enzyme (i.e., superoxide dismutase) blocks nuclear translocation, suggesting that the oxidation of sensitive proteins functions to coordinate the adaptive cellular response. These results suggest that elevated calcium transients, and associated increases in reactive oxygen species, contribute to adaptive cellular responses through the mobilization and nuclear translocation of cellular albumin to mediate the transcriptional regulation of antioxidant responsive elements.

Obituary: Roy Henry Garstang (1925-2009)  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Roy Henry Garstang 84 passed away on November 1, 2009 in Boulder Colorado. He was born in Southport, England in September of 1925 to Percy Brocklehurst and Eunice (Gledhill) Garstang. He won a scholarship to Caius College in Cambridge University. Because it was wartime, he could spend only two years at his studies. However, he managed to complete three years of required work during that time, and then spent 1945-46 as a Junior Scientific Officer at the Royal Aircraft Establishment at Farnborough. He received his BA in 1946 from Cambridge, his MA in 1950, and his PhD in Mathematics in 1954, with a thesis: "Atomic Transitions in Astrophysics," working under D. R. Hartree. He also received a ScD from Cambridge in Physics and Chemistry in 1983. He married Ann in August 1959. She and two daughters, Jennifer and Susan, survive him. While still pursuing his PhD, Roy Garstang served as a Research Associate at the Yerkes Observatory, from 1951-1952, working under Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar. During that time he continued with his own calculations of atomic structure and transition probabilities, although these were not part of Chandra's research interests. After earning his PhD, he went to teach at the University of London, where he also served as the Assistant Director of the University of London Observatory (1959-1964). He was editor of "The Observatory" Magazine form 1953-1960. The continuing theme of this research was to help meet the needs of astrophysicists for atomic data. In 1964, he left England for the United States, where he joined the faculty at the University of Colorado, Boulder, where he would remain for the rest of his professional career. It was entirely fitting, considering his interest in performing calculations of interest to astrophysicists, that soon after arriving in Boulder he was appointed Chairman of JILA - Joint Institute for Laboratory Astrophysics (1966-1967). He was Director of the Division of Physics and AstroGeophysics (1979-80), acting Director of the Fiske Planetarium (1980-81), Chair of the Faculty Assembly (1988-1989) and recipient of the Faculty Assembly Excellence in Service Award in 1990. During his career Garstang was active in a number of professional organizations, including the British Astronomical Association (two-term Vice President) and Sigma Xi for which he was the Secretary of the University of Colorado for 20 years. He was a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the American Physical Society the American Physical Society, the Optical Society of America, the Royal Astronomical Society, the Institute of Physics (British), the Royal Statistical Society, and the Cambridge Philosophical Society. He published more than 150 articles in scientific journals. Roy Garstang was the consummate resource for atomic calculations needed by the astrophysical community. His first scientific paper published when he was a graduate student in 1950 was "Some line strengths for ionized neon" (Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society 110: 612-614) and some 55 papers later, in 1981 he published calculations on neutral technetium "Oscillator strengths for neutral technetium" (PASP 93:641. 1981). A continuing interest of his was forbidden transitions, such as are important in the solar corona, aurora, planetary nebula, and nova shells. He made important calculations of the energy levels and spectra of highly ionized species of iron and worked extensively on magnetic quadrupole radiation, which proved to be important in the solar corona. Garstang also studied the effects of strong magnetic field on atomic spectra, ranging from the thousand gauss fields of sunspots to megagauss fields of white dwarfs. He was internationally recognized for his work on light pollution, which turned into a major course change for him, becoming his primary research interest after 1984. Between 1984 and 2007, he published 40 scientific papers of which 37 concerned sky brightness in one way or another. He constructed and modified a light pollution model (Dus

Integrability vs exact solvability in the quantum Rabi and Dicke models  

E-print Network

The Rabi model describes the simplest interaction between light and matter via a two-level quantum system interacting with a bosonic field. We find that the fully quantised version of the Rabi model is integrable in the Yang-Baxter sense at two parameter values. The model does not appear to be Yang-Baxter integrable in general. This is in contrast to the claim that the quantum Rabi model is integrable based on a phenomenological criterion of quantum integrability not presupposing the existence of a set of commuting operators. Similar Yang-Baxter integrable points are identified for the generalised Rabi model and the fully quantised Dicke model.

Lemaitre-Tolman-Bondi dust cloud collapse in Brans-Dicke gravity  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

This paper investigates the phenomenon of gravitational collapse of Lemaitre-Tolman-Bondi (LTB) model in the presence of Brans-Dicke (BD) scalar field with nonzero potential field. We find a class of solutions by taking perfect fluid as well as scalar field and check the validity of weak energy conditions. It turns out that two different types of singularities are formed in the presence of scalar field. We conclude that the end state of gravitational collapse turns out to be a black hole (BH) contrary to general relativity (GR).

By employing the original equations of MBDT, we probe the reduced Kasner cosmology on the hypersuface with proceeding the investigations for a few cosmological quantities, explaining their properties for some cosmological models.}

A scheme for detecting the atom-field coupling constant in the Dicke superradiation regime using hybrid cavity optomechanical system.  

PubMed

We proposed a scheme for detecting the atom-field coupling constant in the Dicke superradiation regime based on a hybrid cavity optomechanical system assisted by an atomic gas. The critical behavior of the Dicke model was obtained analytically using the spin-coherent-state representation. Without regard to the dynamics of cavity field an analytical formula of one-to-one correspondence between movable mirror's steady position and atom-field coupling constant for a given number of atoms is obtained. Thus the atom-field coupling constant can be probed by measuring the movable mirror's steady position, which is another effect of the cavity optomechanics. PMID:22535102

The function of three indigenous plasmids in Mesorhizobium huakuii 2020 and its symbiotic interaction with Sym pJB5JI of Rhizobium leguminosarum.  

PubMed

A Mesorhizobium huakuii strain 2020, isolated from a rice-growing field in southern China, contains three indigenous plasmids named p2020a, p2020b and p2020c, respectively. The plasmids were deleted via Tn5-sacB insertion, and two cured derivatives were obtained. Interestingly, the mutant 2020D29 curing of p2020c could significantly enhance the capacity of symbiotic nitrogen fixation. But the mutant 2020D8 curing of p2020b lost the ability to nodulate Astragalus sinicus. Furthermore, the third plasmid p2020a could be hardly eliminated, suggesting that some house-keeping genes necessary for strain growth located on this plasmid. Then the Sym plasmid pJB5JI of R. leguminosarum bv. viciae was transferred into 2020 and its cured derivatives. The pot plant test showed that the ability of competition and symbiotic nitrogen fixation of transconjugant 2020-137 (pJB5JI) was increased evidently in contrast to 2020. pJB5JI could not restore the ability of 2020D8 to nodulate Astragalus sinicus. 2020D8-8 (pJB5JI) could form ineffective nodules on peas, which implied that the symbiotic plasmid pJB5JI could express its function at the chromosomal background of Mesorhizobium huakuii 2020. The plasmid stability was checked in transconjugants under free-living and during symbiosis. The results indicated that pJB5JI failed to be detected in some nodule isolates. That Km resistance gene could be amplified from all transconjugants and nodule isolates suggested that pJB5JI was fully or partially integrated into the chromosome of recipients. PMID:18368313

Acoustics and its relation to language: The influence of Dick Bolt  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Under the mentoring of Dick Bolt, and the stimulation he provided in the Acoustics Laboratory at MIT, many students were exposed to a range of topics in acoustics, including mechanisms of sound generation, radiation, and propagation, noise control, acoustics of resonators and rooms, human responses to sound, and speech perception under various adverse conditions. As someone who became interested in speech communication, I have recognized that this kind of quantitative background in acoustics is an important requirement for developing models of how humans produce speech, how they perceive and understand speech, and how children acquire these skills. Speech production involves sound sources produced by a nonlinear mechanical system and by noise arising from turbulent airflow. Sound is propagated in a vocal tract with yielding walls, and acoustic coupling is introduced by lossy resonators attached to the vocal tract, including the trachea and the nasal cavity. These acoustic principles of sound generation create an inventory of sound types that give rise to distinctive responses in the ears and brains of listeners. The solid grounding in acoustics provided by Dick Bolt and his leadership have helped in the formation of this linkage between acoustics, speech physiology, linguistics, and human perception.

Gravitational Collapse In Husain Space-time For Brans-Dicke Gravity Theory  

E-print Network

The motive of this work is to study gravitational collapse in Husain space-time, in Brans-Dicke gravity theory. Among many scalar-tensor theories of gravity, Brans-Dicke is the simplest and the impact of it can be regulated by two parameters, coupling constant $\\omega$, and the assumed field dependency parameter $n$. V. Husain's work on exact solution for null fluid collapse in 1996 has influenced many authors to follow his way to find the end-state of the homogeneous/inhomogeneous dust cloud collapse using Vaidya's metric. Detecting whether the cosmological singularity is naked or wrapped by an event horizon, by the existence of future directed radial null geodesic emitted in past from the singularity is the basic objective. To point out the existence of positive trajectory tangent solution, both particular parametric cases (through tabular forms) and wide range contouring process have been applied. Precisely, perfect fluid's EoS ($p=k\\rho$) satisfies a wide range of phenomena: from dust to exotic fluid like...

Non-Dicke decay in a small spherical sample with radially varying density  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

It is a familiar fact that, in an isolated sphere or ellipsoid of uniform polarization density, the electrostatic field also is uniform. Because of this, the state of uniform polarization in a spherical sample of uniformly distributed two-level atoms is an eigenmode of the coherent decay process in the limit of a small radius compared to the resonant wavelength of a single atom. Consequently, in this special geometry, the Dicke picture of uniform exponential decay should hold. In nonspheroidal geometries or in spherical geometries with nonuniform atomic density, the decay should be more complicated. Here, we find the characteristic equations that determine the eigenmodes of the Lienard-Wiechert interaction for a partly hollowed sphere of identical two-level atoms in two different radial configurations. We show that the Dicke picture for emission from a coherently prepared sample does not correctly describe the system's dynamics even when we take the radius of the sphere to be much smaller than the radiation wavelength.

Dick effect in a pulsed atomic clock using Coherent Population Trapping  

E-print Network

The Dick effect can be a limitation of the achievable frequency stability of a passive atomic frequency standard when the ancillary frequency source is only periodically sampled. Here we analyze the Dick effect for a pulsed vapor cell clock using coherent population trapping (CPT). Due to its specific interrogation process without atomic preparation nor detection outside of the Ramsey pulses, it exhibits an original shape of the sensitivity function to phase noise of the oscillator. Numerical calculations using a three-level atom model are successfully compared with measurements; an approximate formula of the sensitivity function is given as an easy-to-use tool. A comparison of our CPT clock sensitivity to phase noise with a clock of the same duty cycle using a two-level system reveals a higher sensitivity in the CPT case. The influence of a free-evolution time variation and of a detection duration lengthening on this sensitivity is studied. Finally this study permitted to choose an adapted quartz oscillator ...

Hidden continuous symmetry and Nambu-Goldstone mode in a two-mode Dicke model  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

In this paper we investigate the ground- and excited-state properties of a two-mode Dicke model, which is realized in an ensemble of many four-level atoms interacting simultaneously with two quantized cavity fields and two pairs of Raman lasers. We reveal rich phase diagrams, including a first-order quantum phase transition from an electric superradiant phase to a magnetic superradiant phase. In particular, when the two collective atom-photon coupling strengths are equal, we find a hidden continuous U(1) symmetry for the two-mode Dicke model. If these identical coupling strengths are sufficiently strong, a quantum phase called the electromagnetic superradiant phase is predicted. In such a phase, the predicted continuous U(1) symmetry breaks down and the gapless excitation spectrum (the Nambu-Goldstone mode), which could be measured experimentally by combining Bragg spectroscopy and cavity-enhanced Bragg scattering, is thus achieved. Our results pave the way to explore the physics for a model with continuous symmetry in quantum optics without using the rotating-wave approximation.

Holographic dark energy in Brans-Dicke theory with log correction  

E-print Network

In the derivation of holographic dark energy density, the area law of the black hole entropy plays a crucial role. However, the entropy-area relation can be modified from the inclusion of quantum effects, motivated from the loop quantum gravity, string theory and black hole physics. In this paper, we study cosmological implication of the interacting entropy-corrected holographic dark energy model in the framework of Brans-Dicke cosmology. We obtain the equation of state and the deceleration parameters of the entropy-corrected holographic dark energy in a non-flat Universe. As system's IR cutoff we choose the radius of the event horizon measured on the sphere of the horizon, defined as $L=ar(t)$. We find out that when the entropy-corrected holographic dark energy is combined with the Brans-Dicke field, the transition from normal state where $w_D >-1 $ to the phantom regime where $w_D dark energy can be more easily achieved for than when resort to the Einstein field equations is made.

Interacting new agegraphic dark energy in nonflat Brans-Dicke cosmology  

SciTech Connect

We construct a cosmological model of late acceleration based on the new agegraphic dark energy model in the framework of Brans-Dicke cosmology where the new agegraphic energy density {rho}{sub D}=3n{sup 2}m{sub p}{sup 2}/{eta}{sup 2} is replaced with {rho}{sub D}=3n{sup 2{phi}2}/(4{omega}{eta}{sup 2}). We show that the combination of the Brans-Dicke field and agegraphic dark energy can accommodate a w{sub D}=-1 crossing for the equation of state of noninteracting dark energy. When an interaction between dark energy and dark matter is taken into account, the transition of w{sub D} to the phantom regime can be more easily accounted for than when we resort to the Einstein field equations. In the limiting case {alpha}=0 ({omega}{yields}{infinity}), all previous results of the new agegraphic dark energy in Einstein gravity are restored.

Cosmological Constraints on Ghost Dark Energy in the Brans-Dicke Theory by Using MCMC Approach  

E-print Network

By using a Markov Chain Monte Carlo simulation, we investigate cosmological constraints on the ghost dark energy (GDE) model in the framework of the Brans-Dicke (BD) theory. A combination of the latest observational data of the cosmic microwave background radiation data from seven-year WMAP, the baryon acoustic oscillation data form the SDSS, the supernovae type Ia data from the Union2 and the X-ray gas mass fraction data from the Chandra X-ray observations of the largest relaxed galaxy clusters are used to perform constraints on GDE in the BD cosmology. In this paper, we consider both flat and non-flat universes together with interaction between dark matter and dark energy. The main cosmological parameters are obtained as: $\\Omega_{\\rm b}h^2= 0.0223^{+0.0016}_{-0.0013}$, $\\Omega_{\\rm c}h^2=0.1149^{+0.0088}_{-0.0104}$ and $\\Omega_{\\rm k}=0.0005^{+0.0025}_{-0.0073}$. In addition, the Brans-Dicke parameter $\\omega$ is estimated as $1/\\omega\\simeq 0.002$.

Zeros of each G function yield not only the complete regular spectrum but also very few pseudo-solutions in practical calculations. The regular spectrum is completely given by common zeros of all G functions. Exceptional solutions in one G function are regular in other G function, which provides a simple and convenient way to obtain the necessary and sufficient condition for the occurrence of the exceptional eigenvalue. The present analytical exact solutions are just counterparts to the numerical exact solutions by Chen et al [Phys. Rev. A 78 051801(2008)] and Liu et al [Phys. Rev. A 80, 165308(2009)], but may be of more academic and practical value.

Reconstructing Henry: Or, Why Everything You Needed to Know about Wilderness Philosophy You Could Have Learned from Henry David Thoreau  

ERIC Educational Resources Information Center

Henry David Thoreau has gotten a bad rap lately. He's been pigeon-holed as a "romantic" by resource managers who do not have a tiny fragment of his wisdom and don't know anything about him. He's been accused of hypocrisy because his cabin at Walden Pond was not, after all, very remote. His wilderness trips, in this age of fly-in mountaineering,…

Blocking of JB6 Cell Transformation by Tanshinone IIA: Epigenetic Reactivation of Nrf2 Antioxidative Stress Pathway.  

PubMed

Increasing numbers of natural products have been found to possess anticancer effects. Nuclear factor erythroid-2-related factor-2 (Nrf2) is a master regulator of the antioxidative stress response, and our previous studies found that epigenetic modification of the Nrf2 gene appears to be a critical mechanism. Salvia miltiorrhiza, a Chinese herbal medicine widely used in Asian countries, has been shown to possess anticancer and antioxidant effects. Tanshinone IIA (TIIA), an active component in S. miltiorrhiza, has been reported to activate Nrf2 pathway. The objective of this study was to investigate the epigenetic regulation of Nrf2 by TIIA in mouse skin epidermal JB6 cells and the functional consequences for cell transformation. TIIA was found to induce antioxidant response element-luciferase and upregulate the mRNA and protein levels of Nrf2 and Nrf2 downstream target genes HO-1 and NQO-1. TIIA decreased the colony formation of JB6 cells by approximately 80%. TIIA decreased the protein levels of DNMT1, DNMT3a, DNMT3b, and HDAC3 and inhibited the enzymatic activity of HDACs. Bisulfite genomic sequencing indicated that TIIA demethylated the first five CpGs in the promoter region of the Nrf2 gene. Chromatin immunoprecipitation assays showed that TIIA treatment increased the recruitment of RNA polymerase II at Nrf2 transcription start site but had limited effects on enrichment of Ac-H3 in Nrf2 promoter. Taken together, our results show that TIIA activates the Nrf2 signaling pathway and induces epigenetic demethylation of the CpGs of Nrf2. The epigenetic reactivation of the Nrf2 signaling pathway by TIIA could potentially contribute to the attenuation of JB6 cellular transformation and anticancer effects. PMID:25274607

Constraints on Brans-Dicke cosmology with a varying {lambda} term due to the big-bang nucleosynthesis and WMAP  

SciTech Connect

We investigate the big-bang nucleosynthesis (BBN) in a Brans-Dicke model with a varying {lambda} term. We find that the cosmic expansion rate differs appreciably from that of the Friedmann model during the BBN epoch . The produced abundances of 4He, D, and 7Li are consistent with both the observed ones and the baryon density obtained from WMAP.

Gravitational collapse in Husain space-time for Brans-Dicke gravity theory with power-law potential  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The motive of this work is to study gravitational collapse in Husain space-time in Brans-Dicke gravity theory. Among many scalar-tensor theories of gravity, Brans-Dicke is the simplest and the impact of it can be regulated by two parameters associated with it, namely, the Brans-Dicke parameter, $\\omega$, and the potential-scalar field dependency parameter $n$ respectively. V. Husain's work on exact solution for null fluid collapse in 1996 has influenced many authors to follow his way to find the end-state of the homogeneous/in-homogeneous dust cloud. Vaidya's metric is used all over to follow the nature of future outgoing radial null geodesics. Detecting whether the central singularity is naked or wrapped by an event horizon, by the existence of future directed radial null geodesic emitted in past from the singularity is the basic objective. To point out the existence of positive trajectory tangent solution, both particular parametric cases(through tabular forms) and wide range contouring process have been applied. Precisely, perfect fluid's EoS satisfies a wide range of phenomena : from dust to exotic fluid like dark energy. We have used the EoS parameter $k$ to determine the end state of collapse in different cosmological era. Our main target is to check low $\\omega$ (more deviations from Einstein gravity-more Brans Dicke effect) and negative $k$ zones. This particularly throws light on the nature of the end-state of collapse in accelerated expansion in Brans Dicke gravity. It is seen that for positive values of EoS parameter $k$, the collapse results in a black hole, whereas for negative values of $k$, naked singularity is the only outcome. It is also to be noted that "low $\\omega$" leads to the possibility of getting more naked singularities even for a non-accelerating universe.

Thermodynamics of charged rotating black branes in Brans-Dicke theory with quadratic scalar field potential  

SciTech Connect

We construct a class of charged rotating solutions in (n+1)-dimensional Maxwell-Brans-Dicke theory with flat horizon in the presence of a quadratic potential and investigate their properties. These solutions are neither asymptotically flat nor (anti)-de Sitter. We find that these solutions can present black brane, with inner and outer event horizons, an extreme black brane or a naked singularity provided the parameters of the solutions are chosen suitably. We compute the finite Euclidean action through the use of counterterm method, and obtain the conserved and thermodynamic quantities by using the relation between the action and free energy in grand-canonical ensemble. We find that these quantities satisfy the first law of thermodynamics, and the entropy does not follow the area law.

Astrophysical constraints on primordial black holes in Brans-Dicke theory  

SciTech Connect

We consider cosmological evolution in Brans-Dicke theory with a population of primordial black holes. Hawking radiation from the primordial black holes impacts various astrophysical processes during the evolution of the Universe. The accretion of radiation by the black holes in the radiation dominated era may be effective in imparting them a longer lifetime. We present a detailed study of how this affects various standard astrophysical constraints coming from the evaporation of primordial black holes. We analyze constraints arising from the present density of the Universe, the present photon spectrum, the distortion of the cosmic microwave background spectrum and also from processes affecting light element abundances after nucleosynthesis. We find that the constraints on the initial primordial black hole mass fractions are tightened with increased accretion efficiency.

Progress Toward a Cavity-QED Realization of the Dicke Model Quantum Phase Transition  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We present progress towards a Cavity-QED realization of the quantum phase transition seen in the Dicke Model Hamiltonian for N > 1 spins coupled to a single Bosonic field mode, as proposed by Dimer et. al. Phys. Rev. A. 75, 013804 (2007). The implementation is based upon cesium atoms held within a high finesse optical cavity. Cavity-mediated Raman transitions between magnetically detuned Zeeman sublevels provides near critical coupling between a collective pseudo-spin and a quantized cavity mode. Progress has been made in building the necessary infrastructure to collect ˜10^6 atoms in an intracavity optical lattice, while still maintaining a background pressure of ˜10-10 torr. A tandem vacuum chamber provides a pressure difference of 2 orders of magnitude. A 2D-MOT will funnel atoms from a high pressure chamber into the lower pressure science chamber. Current efforts are directed towards capturing the funneled atoms.

Exploring chaos in the Dicke model using ground-state fidelity and Loschmidt echo  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We study the quantum critical behavior of the Dicke Hamiltonian with finite number of atoms and explore the signature of quantum chaos using measures like the ground-state fidelity and the Loschmidt echo and the time-averaged Loschmidt echo. We show that these quantities clearly point to the classically chaotic nature of the system in the superradiant (SR) phase. While the ground-state fidelity shows aperiodic oscillations as a function of the coupling strength, the echo shows aperiodic oscillations in time and decays rapidly when the system is in the SR phase. We clearly demonstrate how the time-averaged value of the echo already incorporates the information about the ground-state fidelity and stays much less than unity, indicating the classically chaotic nature of the model in the SR phase.

Singularities and isotropy in a Brans-Dicke Bianchi-type VII universe

We study the dynamical effects in the scale factors due to the scalar $\\phi$-field at the early stages of a supposedly anisotropic Universe expansion in connection with the problem of the initial singularity in the scalar-tensor cosmology of Jordan-Brans-Dicke. This is done by considering the behaviour of the general analytical solutions for the homogeneous model of Bianchi type VII in the vacuum case. We conclude that the Bianchi-VII$_0$ model shows an isotropic expansion and that its only physical solution is equivalent to a Friedman-Robertson-Walker spacetime whose evolution begins in a singularity and ends in another; moreover, we obtain that the general Bianchi-VII$_h$ (with $h\

Bianchi type-III bulk viscous string cosmological model in Brans-Dicke theory of gravitation  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

A spatially homogeneous and anisotropic Bianchi type-III space-time is considered in the framework of a scalar-tensor theory of gravitation proposed by Brans and Dicke (Phys. Rev. 124:925, 1961) in the presence of bulk viscous fluid containing one dimensional cosmic strings. We have found a determinate solution of the field equations using the plausible physical conditions (i) a barotropic equation state for the pressure and density, (ii) special law of variation for Hubble's parameter proposed by Berman (Nuovo Cimento B74:182, 1983), (iii) shear scalar is proportional to scalar expansion and (iv) the trace of the energy tensor of the fluid vanishes. We have also assumed that bulk viscous pressure is proportional to energy density. Some physical and kinematical properties of the model are, also, discussed.

Rev. 124:925, 1961) scalar-tensor theory of gravitation in the presence of bulk viscous fluid containing one dimensional cosmic strings. To find a determinate solution of the highly non-linear field equations we use the special law of variation for Hubble's parameter proposed by Berman (Nuovo Cimento B 74:182, 1983). We also use (i) the barotropic equation of state for the pressure and density. (ii) the trace free energy momentum tensor of the fluid and (iii) shear scalar is proportional to scalar expansion. Some physical and kinematical properties of the model obtained are, also, discussed.

Henry Cavendish, Johann von Soldner, and the deflection of light  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The gravitational deflection of light based on Newtonian theory and the corpuscular model of light was calculated, but never published, around 1784 by Henry Cavendish, almost 20 years earlier than the first published calculation by Johann Georg von Soldner. The two results are slightly different because, while Cavendish treated a light ray emitted from infinity, von Soldner treated a light ray emitted from the surface of the gravitating body. At the first order of approximation, they agree with each other; both are one-half the value predicted by general relativity and confirmed by experiment.

Henri Ey's neojacksonism and the psychopathology of disintegrated mind.  

PubMed

The French psychiatrist Henri Ey developed his organo-dynamic theory of the mind function and consciousness 50 years ago incorporating Hughling Jackson's thinking, along with psychiatric and philosophical theorizations by Janet and Bergson. This model has not received the attention it deserved, but recent advances in neuroscience rekindled interest for Ey's theory. By overcoming the Cartesian mind-body dualism and treating the mind-body unit as an inseparable whole, this model opens the way for the integrated treatment of mental disorders. Ey's conceptualization of consciousness as being simultaneously both synchronous and diachronic anticipates current theories of consciousness (Damasio, Edelman, Mesulam). PMID:16179816

Stable high-titer n-butanol production from sucrose and sugarcane juice by Clostridium acetobutylicum JB200 in repeated batch fermentations.  

PubMed

The production of n-butanol, a widely used industrial chemical and promising transportation fuel, from abundant, low-cost substrates, such as sugarcane juice, in acetone-butanol-ethanol (ABE) fermentation was studied with Clostridium acetobutylicum JB200, a mutant with high butanol tolerance and capable of producing high-titer (>20 g/L) n-butanol from glucose. Although JB200 is a favorable host for industrial bio-butanol production, its fermentation performance with sucrose and sugarcane juice as substrates has not been well studied. In this study, the long-term n-butanol production from sucrose by JB200 was evaluated with cells immobilized in a fibrous-bed bioreactor (FBB), showing stable performance with high titer (16-20 g/L), yield (? 0.21 g/g sucrose) and productivity (? 0.32 g/Lh) for 16 consecutive batches over 800 h. Sugarcane thick juice as low-cost substrate was then tested in 3 consecutive batches, which gave similar n-butanol production, demonstrating that JB200 is a robust and promising strain for industrial ABE fermentation.

Study of Antigravity in an F(R) Model and in Brans-Dicke Theory with Cosmological Constant  

E-print Network

We study antigravity, that is having an effective gravitational constant with a negative sign, in scalar-tensor theories originating from $F(R)$-theory and in a Brans-Dicke model with cosmological constant. For the $F(R)$ theory case, we obtain the antigravity scalar-tensor theory in the Jordan frame by using a variant of the Lagrange multipliers method and we numerically study the time dependent effective gravitational constant. As we shall demonstrate by using a specific $F(R)$ model, although there is no antigravity in the initial model, it might occur or not in the scalar-tensor counterpart, mainly depending on the parameter that characterizes antigravity. Similar results hold true in the Brans-Dicke model.

Study of Antigravity in an F(R) Model and in Brans-Dicke Theory with Cosmological Constant  

E-print Network

We study antigravity, that is having an effective gravitational constant with a negative sign, in scalar-tensor theories originating from $F(R)$-theory and in a Brans-Dicke model with cosmological constant. For the $F(R)$ theory case, we obtain the antigravity scalar-tensor theory in the Jordan frame by using a variant of the Lagrange multipliers method and we numerically study the time dependent effective gravitational constant. As we shall demonstrate by using a specific $F(R)$ model, although there is no antigravity in the initial model, it might occur or not in the scalar-tensor counterpart, mainly depending on the parameter that characterizes antigravity. Similar results hold true in the Brans-Dicke model.

Pathways of Barotrauma in Juvenile Salmonids Exposed to Simulated Hydroturbine Passage: Boyle’s Law vs. Henry’s Law  

SciTech Connect

On their seaward migration, juvenile salmonids commonly pass hydroelectric dams. Fish passing by the turbine blade may experience rapid decompression, the severity of which can be highly variable and may result in a number of barotraumas. The mechanisms of these injuries can be due to expansion of existing bubbles or gases coming out of solution; governed by Boyle’s Law and Henry’s Law, respectively. This paper combines re-analysis of published data with new experiments to gain a better understanding of the mechanisms of injury and mortality for fish experiencing rapid decompression associated with hydroturbine passage. From these data it appears that the majority of decompression related injuries are due to the expansion of existing bubbles in the fish, particularly the expansion and rupture of the swim bladder. This information is particularly useful for fisheries managers and turbine manufacturers, demonstrating that reducing the rate of swim bladder ruptures by reducing the frequency of occurrence and severity of rapid decompression during hydroturbine passage could reduce the rates of injury and mortality for hydroturbine passed juvenile salmonids.

Henry Cavendish and the density of the earth  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

From the fall of 1797 through the spring of 1798, Henry Cavendish performed a series of experiments, which now bear his name, that were aimed at determining the density of Earth. While Cavendish is rightfully considered a brilliant experimenter by many historians, he is often credited (in both popular and historical literature) as the scientist who first accurately weighed the Earth and determined the universal constant of gravitation, G. While the universal constant of gravitation and the mass (or weight) of the Earth can indeed be calculated from the density of the Earth, this was neither Cavendish's result nor his intent in writing "Experiments to Determine the Density of the Earth." Rather, Cavendish's interest lies in solving an eighteenth-century dispute: what is the mean density of the Earth?

Reversible and irreversible spacetime thermodynamics for general Brans-Dicke theories  

SciTech Connect

We derive the equations of motion for Palatini F(R) gravity by applying an entropy balance law TdS={delta}Q+{delta}N to the local Rindler wedge that can be constructed at each point of spacetime. Unlike previous results for metric F(R), there is no bulk viscosity term in the irreversible flux {delta}N. Both theories are equivalent to particular cases of Brans-Dicke scalar-tensor gravity. We show that the thermodynamical approach can be used ab initio also for this class of gravitational theories and it is able to provide both the metric and scalar equations of motion. In this case, the presence of an additional scalar degree of freedom and the requirement for it to be dynamical naturally imply a separate contribution from the scalar field to the heat flux {delta}Q. Therefore, the gravitational flux previously associated to a bulk viscosity term in metric F(R) turns out to be actually part of the reversible thermodynamics. Hence we conjecture that only the shear viscosity associated with Hartle-Hawking dissipation should be associated with irreversible thermodynamics.

Real-time observation of fluctuations at the driven-dissipative Dicke phase transition  

PubMed Central

We experimentally study the influence of dissipation on the driven Dicke quantum phase transition, realized by coupling external degrees of freedom of a Bose–Einstein condensate to the light field of a high-finesse optical cavity. The cavity provides a natural dissipation channel, which gives rise to vacuum-induced fluctuations and allows us to observe density fluctuations of the gas in real-time. We monitor the divergence of these fluctuations over two orders of magnitude while approaching the phase transition, and observe a behavior that deviates significantly from that expected for a closed system. A correlation analysis of the fluctuations reveals the diverging time scale of the atomic dynamics and allows us to extract a damping rate for the external degree of freedom of the atoms. We find good agreement with our theoretical model including dissipation via both the cavity field and the atomic field. Using a dissipation channel to nondestructively gain information about a quantum many-body system provides a unique path to study the physics of driven-dissipative systems. PMID:23818599

QCD Phase Transition in Brans-Dicke DGP model of Brane Gravity  

E-print Network

A DGP brane-world model with a perfect fluid brane matter including a Brans-Dicke (BD) scalar field on brane has been utilized to investigate the problem of quark-hadron phase (QHP) transition in early times of the Universe evoltion. The presence of BD scalar field came up with some modification terms in the Friedmann equation, however we have a usual form of conservation equation for brane matter since scalar field only has a non-mnimally interaction with geometry. Behavior of phase transition strongly depends on the basic evolution equations. Then, even a small change in these relation might come to interesting results about the time of transition. Two different formalisms as smooth crossover formalism in which lattice QCD data is used for obtaining the matter equation of state and first-order phase transition formalism, have been used to investigate of the evolution of physical quatities relevant to quantitative of early times such as energy density $\\rho$, scale factor $a$, and temperature $T$. The obtained results show that the general behavior of temperature is similar in both of two formalisms and the QHP transition occurred at about micro-second after the Big Bang.

Albritton’s science overview was discussed by Andrew Revkin (New York Times, June 12, 2001) and made available on a NOAA web site (www.oar.noaa.gov/education). Hansen was asked to address his papers on an “alternative scenario ” for climate change [where he proposed that climate change could be slowed by (1) reducing non-CO2 climate forcings, and (2) getting CO2 emissions to level out in the near-term and decline significantly before mid-century]. Based on his perception of the energy-climate issues wrestled with by the cabinet-level group, Hansen defined a task for his education-outreach team. This team consisted of high school students, teachers, a professor and research colleagues working with Hansen in a summer program, the Institute on Planets and Climate. The task assignment to his student-educator-researcher team, the “A-Team”, was couched by Hansen as a note from the Secretary of State requesting assistance

SN 2008jb: A 'LOST' CORE-COLLAPSE SUPERNOVA IN A STAR-FORMING DWARF GALAXY AT {approx}10 Mpc  

SciTech Connect

We present the discovery and follow-up observations of SN 2008jb, a core-collapse supernova in the southern dwarf irregular galaxy ESO 302-14 (M{sub B} = -15.3 mag) at 9.6 Mpc. This nearby transient was missed by galaxy-targeted surveys and was only found in archival optical images obtained by the Catalina Real-time Transient Survey and the All-Sky Automated Survey. The well-sampled archival photometry shows that SN 2008jb was detected shortly after explosion and reached a bright optical maximum, V{sub max} {approx_equal} 13.6 mag (M{sub V,max} {approx_equal} -16.5). The shape of the light curve shows a plateau of {approx}100 days, followed by a drop of {approx}1.4 mag in the V band to a slow decline with an approximate {sup 56}Co decay slope. The late-time light curve is consistent with 0.04 {+-} 0.01 M{sub Sun} of {sup 56}Ni synthesized in the explosion. A spectrum of the supernova obtained two years after explosion shows a broad, boxy H{alpha} emission line, which is unusual for normal Type II-Plateau supernovae at late times. We detect the supernova in archival Spitzer and WISE images obtained 8-14 months after explosion, which show clear signs of warm (600-700 K) dust emission. The dwarf irregular host galaxy, ESO 302-14, has a low gas-phase oxygen abundance, 12 + log(O/H) = 8.2 ({approx}1/5 Z{sub Sun }), similar to those of the Small Magellanic Cloud and the hosts of long gamma-ray bursts and luminous core-collapse supernovae. This metallicity is one of the lowest among local ({approx}< 10 Mpc) supernova hosts. We study the host environment using GALEX far-UV, R-band, and H{alpha} images and find that the supernova occurred in a large star formation complex. The morphology of the H{alpha} emission appears as a large shell (R {approx_equal} 350 pc) surrounding the FUV and optical emission. Using the H{alpha}-to-FUV ratio and FUV and R-band luminosities, we estimate an age of {approx}9 Myr and a total mass of {approx}2 Multiplication-Sign 10{sup 5} M{sub Sun} for the star formation complex, assuming a single-age starburst. These properties are consistent with the expanding H{alpha} supershells observed in many well-studied nearby dwarf galaxies, which are tell-tale signs of feedback from the cumulative effect of massive star winds and supernovae. The age estimated for the star-forming region where SN 2008jb exploded suggests a relatively high-mass progenitor star with an initial mass M {approx} 20 M{sub Sun} and warrants further study. We discuss the implications of these findings in the study of core-collapse supernova progenitors.

(Methyl)glyoxal in Different Electrolytes: Product Distributions, Optical Properties and Influence on Henry's Law Constant  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

(Methyl)glyoxal in Different Electrolytes: Product Distributions, Optical Properties and Influence on Henry’s Law Constant, Methylglyoxal and glyoxal are produced in the oxidation of many volatile organic compounds (VOCs). They partition strongly into aqueous solutions due to hydration of their aldehyde groups, which is reflected in their large Henry’s law constants. As a result, there have been many recent studies investigating the role of both in secondary organic aerosol formation; it has also been shown that reaction products within aerosol could affect aerosol optical properties. We present laboratory experiments of aerosol mimics using a variety of analytical methods to evaluate: (1) why sulfate increases the Henry’s law constant substantially compared to chloride; (2) the effect of different electrolytes on oligomerization; (3) the identity, mechanism and kinetics of reaction products in ammonium containing solution and; (4) the identity of the light absorbing compounds formed in ammonium containing solutions. We will also discuss whether similar effects of electrolytes on other organic compounds should be expected and implications for ambient aerosol.

Effects of surfactants and salt on Henry's constant of n-hexane.  

PubMed

n-Hexane biological removal is intrinsically limited by its hydrophobic nature and low bioavailability. The addition of surfactants could enhance the transport of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and change the gas-liquid equilibrium of VOCs. In this paper, the effects of four surfactants, sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS), cetyltrimethylammonium bromide (CTAB), tert-octylphenoxypoly-ethoxyethanol (Triton X-100), polyoxyethylene (20) sorbitan monooleate (Tween 80), and sodium nitrate on apparent Henry's constant of n-hexane in surfactant solutions were investigated. The apparent Henry's constants were significantly reduced when surfactants concentrations exceeded their critical micelle concentrations (cmc's). On a cmc basis, the anionic surfactant SDS was found to have the greatest effect on the apparent Henry's constant with CTAB succeeding, then followed by Triton X-100 and Tween 80. However, the apparent Henry's constant of n-hexane decreased even more rapidly when Triton X-100, a nonionic surfactant, was added than when the ionic surfactant of SDS or CTAB was applied under identical mass concentration and other conditions. These results suggest that Triton X-100 have the biggest solubilization of n-hexane among the four surfactants. Sodium nitrate slightly decreased the apparent Henry's constant of n-hexane in surfactant solutions, and could be considered as a cosolvent in the surfactant-(n-hexane) solution. In addition, the relationship between apparent Henry's constant and surfactant concentration was further developed. PMID:19864062

[Hypospadia and infertility of Henry II of France (1519-1559)].  

PubMed

Henry II (1519-1559) of France was the second son of Francis I (1494-1547) and Claude de France (1498-1524) born in 1519 in St. Germain-en-Laye. After his older brother's and his father's death in 1547, he was anointed the French king in Reims. In 1533 already, as a 14-year-old boy, for reasons of state, he was married to the same aged Catherine de Medici (1519-1589), as her uncle was Pope Clement VII (1478-1534). The marriage remained childless for 11 years since Henry, due to a distinct hypospadia and a completely sexually inexperienced wife was unable to conceive children with her. His existing liaison to Diane de Poitiers (1499-1566) - a 19-year-older maid of honor of his father Francis I from 1537 until his death - influenced his sexual life immensely.The blame for the childless marriage was placed primarily on his wife, as Henry had become father of an illegitimate daughter with a mistress. Catherine then underwent all possible medical and alchemical procedures to finally give birth to the hoped Dauphin. Ironically, her rival for the favor of her husband, Diane de Poitiers was one of her greatest allies. She made clear that the cause lay with Henry and not with his wife. This was confirmed by the added solid physician Jean Fernel (1497-1558). His treatment of Henry and the simultaneous training of the unexperienced Catherine by Diane de Poitiers led to success.The result was the birth of Francis II (1544-1560) in 1544, the first of 10 children in 12 years. Thus, the dynasty was saved. After the death of Henry in a tragic tournament accident in 1559, three of his sons became kings of France. But the line of Valois remained without further descendants and was continued by Henry IV, the first Bourbon king in 1589. PMID:24585117

Observations of Dicke narrowing and speed dependence in air-broadened CO2 lineshapes near 2.06 ?m.  

PubMed

Frequency-stabilized cavity ring-down spectroscopy was used to study CO2 lineshapes in the (20013) ? (00001) band centered near 2.06 ?m. Two rovibrational transitions were chosen for this study to measure non-Voigt collisional effects for air-broadened lines over the pressure range of 7 kPa-28 kPa. Lineshape analysis for both lines revealed evidence of simultaneous Dicke (collisional) narrowing and speed-dependent effects that would introduce biases exceeding 2% in the retrieved air-broadening parameters if not incorporated in the modeling of CO2 lineshapes. Additionally, correlations between velocity- and phase/state changing collisions greatly reduced the observed Dicke narrowing effect. As a result, it was concluded that the most appropriate line profile for modeling CO2 lineshapes near 2.06 ?m was the correlated speed-dependent Nelkin-Ghatak profile, which includes all of the physical effects mentioned above and leads to a consistent set of line shape parameters that are linear with gas pressure.

Age of the universe constrained from the primordial nucleosynthesis in the Brans-Dicke theory with a varying cosmological term.  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The age of the universe is investigated from a viewpoint of the primordial nucleosynthesis in the Brans-Dicke model with a varying {LAMBDA} term. It is shown that the age can be long enough compared with that of the globular clusters using two critical quantities recently reported from the HST observations: the Hubble constant, and deuterium abundances. Then it is shown that the present rate of variation in the gravitational ``constant'' can be predicted. From the observational constraint in the primordial nucleosynthesis, the baryon density relative to the critical density is found to be {OMEGA}_b_=0.047-0.14 from the observation by Songaila et al. (1996) and {OMEGA}_b_=0.16-0.22 from that by Tytler et al. (1996), where the critical density is ?_c_=6.0x10^-30^g/cm^3^ for H_0_=80km/s/Mpc and a parameter characteristic to the Brans-Dicke theory. It is concluded that most of the matter consists of the non-baryonic dark matter if the universe is flat.

Combining red and blue-detuned optical potentials to form a Lamb-Dicke trap for a single neutral atom.  

PubMed

We propose and demonstrate a scheme for strong radial confinement of a single 87 Rb atom by a bichromatic far-off resonance optical dipole trap (BFORT). The BFORT is composed of a blue-detuned Laguerre-Gaussian LG01 beam and a red-detuned Gaussian beam. The atomic oscillation frequency measurement shows that the effective trapping dimension is much sharper than that from a diffraction-limited microscopic objective. Theory shows that the added scattering rate due to imposing blue-detuned light is negligible when the temperature of the single atoms is close to ground state temperature. By carrying out sub-Doppler cooling, the mean energy of single atoms trapped in the BFORT is reduced to 15 ± 1 ?K. The corresponding mean quantum number of radial vibration n is about 1.65, which satisfies the Lamb-Dicke regime. We conclude that the BFORT is a suitable Lamb-Dicke trap for further cooling a single neutral atom down to the ground state and for further application in quantum information processing.

Gas Bubble Growth Dynamics in a Supersaturated Solution: Henry's and Sievert's Solubility Laws  

E-print Network

Theoretical description of diffusion growth of a gas bubble after its nucleation in supersaturated liquid solution is presented. We study the influence of Laplace pressure on the bubble growth. We consider two different solubility laws: Henry's law, which is fulfilled for the systems where no gas molecules dissociation takes place and Sievert's law, which is fulfilled for the systems where gas molecules completely dissociate in the solvent into two parts. We show that the difference between Henry's and Sievert's laws for chemical equilibrium conditions causes the difference in bubble growth dynamics. Assuming that diffusion flux of dissolved gas molecules to the bubble is steady we obtain differential equations on bubble radius for both solubility laws. For the case of homogeneous nucleation of a bubble, which takes place at a significant pressure drop bubble dynamics equations for Henry's and Sievert's laws are solved analytically. For both solubility laws three characteristic stages of bubble growth are mar...

Annie Jump Cannon: `` Life after The Henry Draper Catalogue.''  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Seventy-five years ago the first three volumes of The Henry Draper Catalogue were published. The pages printed in 1918 contain the spectral types, revised magnitudes, and updated positions for more than 77,000 stars. For the nine volumes of the catalogue, Cannon classified spectra for 225,300 stars; and in her lifetime, spectra for almost 400,000 stars. This work netted her half a dozen honorary degrees, the Draper Medal of the NAS, and numerous other prizes and honors. In his preface to Volume 1, Edward Pickering noted that it took two years to process the copy for the initial volumes and estimated that it would take two more years to complete the copy for the remaining volumes. But shortly after he wrote the preface for Volume 3 in December 1918, Pickering died. And it proved to take three times as long as he had predicted to complete the publication of all nine volumes of the catalogue by the spring of 1924. Although Cannon had enjoyed much more independence and status than the other women at HCO, she had looked to Pickering for guidance and financial support for her astronomical projects. Without him, she had to develop other resources and also had to represent the Harvard Classification for the first IAU meeting in Rome in 1922. Although she did not attend the meeting, she corresponded with Frederick Seares at Mount Wilson Observatory about various questions that astronomers had raised about classifying spectra. Meanwhile, in 1921 Harlow Shapley was appointed Director of HCO. He oversaw the publication of the final volumes of the HD and encouraged Cannon to extend it for stars in special regions. For the HD Extension, he hired Margaret Walton to assist Cannon. But the cost of labor to determine positions and magnitudes was prohibitive, so for many stars the HDE lists only the BD number and spectral type. Even that format proved too costly in the depression and war years. Consequently, the last volume of the HDE was published as charts after World War II.

Silibinin inhibits ultraviolet B radiation-induced DNA-damage and apoptosis by enhancing interleukin-12 expression in JB6 cells and SKH-1 hairless mouse skin.  

PubMed

Recent studies have demonstrated silibinin efficacy against ultraviolet B (UVB)-induced skin carcinogenesis via different mechanisms in cell lines and animal models; however, its role in regulating interleukin-12 (IL-12), an immunomodulatory cytokine that reduces UVB-induced DNA damage and apoptosis, is not known. Here, we report that UVB irradiation causes caspase 3 and PARP cleavage and apoptosis, and addition of recombinant IL-12 or silibinin immediately after UVB significantly protects UVB-induced apoptosis in JB6 cells. IL-12 antibody-mediated blocking of IL-12 activity compromised the protective effects of both IL-12 and silibinin. Both silibinin and IL-12 also accelerated the repair of UVB-caused cyclobutane-pyrimidine dimers (CPDs) in JB6 cells. Additional studies confirmed that indeed silibinin causes a significant increase in IL-12 levels in UVB-irradiated JB6 cells as well as in mouse skin epidermis, and that similar to cell-culture findings, silibinin topical application immediately after UVB exposure causes a strong protection against UVB-induced TUNEL positive cells in epidermis possibly through a significantly accelerated repair of UVB-caused CPDs. Together, these findings for the first time provide an important insight regarding the pharmacological mechanism wherein silibinin induces endogenous IL-12 in its efficacy against UVB-caused skin damages. In view of the fact that an enhanced endogenous IL-12 level could effectively remove UVB-caused DNA damage and associated skin cancer, our findings suggest that the use of silibinin in UVB-damaged human skin would also be a practical and translational strategy to manage solar radiation-caused skin damages as well as skin cancer.

Control-Structure Ratings on the Fox River at McHenry and Algonquin, Illinois  

USGS Publications Warehouse

The Illinois Department of Natural Resources-Office of Water Resources operates control structures on a reach of the Fox River in northeastern Illinois between McHenry and Algonquin. The structures maintain water levels in the river for flood-control and recreational purposes. This report documents flow ratings for hinged-crest gates, a broad-crested weir, sluice gates, and an ogee spillway on the control structures at McHenry and Algonquin. The ratings were determined by measuring headwater and tailwater stage along with streamflow at a wide range of flows at different gate openings. Standard control-structure rating techniques were used to rate each control structure. The control structures at McHenry consist of a 221-feet(ft)-long broad-crested weir, a 4-ft-wide fish ladder, a 50-ft-wide hinged-crest gate, five 13.75-ft-wide sluice gates, and a navigational lock. Sixty measurements were used to rate the McHenry structures. The control structures at Algonquin consist of a 242-ft-long ogee spillway and a 50-ft-wide hinged-crest gate. Forty-one measurements were used to rate the Algonquin control structures.

A new understanding of the first electromagnetic machine: Joseph Henry's vibrating motor  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

In 1831, Henry invented a battery-powered rocking-beam motor that he later described as the first electromagnetic machine. He repeatedly modified the design over his career, but only one version of a motor actually constructed by Henry is known to exist. This version is in a collection of Henry instruments at Princeton University. We found that the Princeton motor cannot have operated in the form that was displayed as early as 1884. We found evidence in several historical documents and in the instrument itself that the field magnet shown with the motor is a mistake. Instead of a single horizontal bar magnet, the motor was designed to use two elliptical magnets. We presume the error was made by whoever assembled the first public display. We modeled the dynamics of Henry's vibrating motor and compared our results to the operation of a replica motor. Modeling provides insight into how the motor is able to vibrate indefinitely even in the presence of energy loss due to friction.

Dissolved-Solids Load in Henrys Fork Upstream from the Confluence with Antelope Wash, Wyoming, Water Years 1970-2009  

USGS Publications Warehouse

Annual dissolved-solids load at the mouth of Henrys Fork was estimated by using data from U.S. Geological Survey streamflow-gaging station 09229500, Henrys Fork near Manila, Utah. The annual dissolved-solids load for water years 1970-2009 ranged from 18,300 tons in 1977 to 123,300 tons in 1983. Annual streamflows for this period ranged from 14,100 acre-feet in 1977 to 197,500 acre-feet in 1983. The 25-percent trimmed mean dissolved-solids load for water years 1970-2009 was 44,300 tons per year at Henrys Fork near Manila, Utah. Previous simulations using a SPAtially Referenced Regression On Watershed attributes (SPARROW) model for dissolved solids specific to water year 1991 conditions in the Upper Colorado River Basin predicted an annual dissolved-solids load of 25,000 tons for the Henrys Fork Basin upstream from Antelope Wash. On the basis of computed dissolved-solids load data from Henrys Fork near Manila, Utah, together with estimated annual dissolved-solids load from Antelope Wash and Peoples Canal, this prediction was adjusted to 37,200 tons. As determined by simulations with the Upper Colorado River Basin SPARROW model, approximately 56 percent (14,000 tons per year) of the dissolved-solids load at Henrys Fork upstream from Antelope Wash is associated with the 21,500 acres of irrigated agricultural lands in the upper Henrys Fork Basin.

Assessment of water-quality conditions in the J.B. Converse Lake watershed, Mobile County, Alabama, 1990-98  

USGS Publications Warehouse

J.B. Converse (Converse) Lake is a 3,600-acre, tributary-storage reservoir in Mobile County, southwestern Alabama. The lake serves as the primary drinking-water supply for the city of Mobile. The Converse Lake watershed lies within the Coastal Plain Physiographic Province. Semiconsolidated to unconsolidated sediments of sand, silt, gravel, and clay underlie the watershed, and are covered by acidic soils. Land use in the watershed is mainly forest (64 percent) and agriculture (31 percent). Residential and commercial development account for only 1 percent of the total land use in the watershed. Converse Lake receives inflow from seven major tributaries. The greatest inflows are from Big Creek, Crooked Creek, and Hamilton Creek that had mean annual streamflows of 72.2, 19.4, and 25.0 cubic feet per second, respectively, for the period 1990 to 1998, which represents about 72 percent of the total annual streamflow to the lake. The total mean annual inflow to the lake is estimated to be about 163 cubic feet per second. In general, water quality in Converse Lake and its tributaries meets the criteria established by the Alabama Department of Environmental Management (ADEM) for drinking-water supplies, whole-body contact, and aquatic life. The exceptions include acidic pH levels, iron and manganese levels above secondary or aesthetic criteria, and fecal bacterial levels in some tributaries above whole-body contact (swimmable) criteria. The pH levels throughout the watershed were commonly below the criteria level of 6.0, but this appears to have been a naturally occurring phenomenon caused by poorly buffered soil types, resistant sediments, and forested land use. Median iron and manganese levels were above aesthetic criteria levels of 300 and 50 micrograms per liter, respectively, in some tributaries. All tributary sites in the Converse Lake watershed had median and minimum dissolved-oxygen concentrations above the ADEM criteria level of 5 milligrams per liter except for Boggy Branch, which had a minimum dissolved-oxygen concentration of 3.7 milligrams per liter. The degree to which nutrient contributions from tributaries were causing nutrient enrichment and eutrophication in Converse Lake was assessed. Trend analysis detected little or no change in nutrient concentrations at the tributary and lake sites in the Converse Lake watershed from the 1991 to 1998 water years. Nutrient concentrations at most tributary sites exhibited a significant, positive relation with streamflow that indicated the dominant source of nutrient input to the watershed is from nonpoint contributions. From 1990 to 1998, computed mean annual loads of 75,400 kilograms of total nitrogen, 36,950 kilograms of total Kjeldahl nitrogen, 28,870 kilograms of total inorganic nitrogen, and 3,480 kilograms of total phosphorus were contributed to the lake by Big Creek, Hamilton Creek, and Crooked Creek combined. These mean annual loads of nutrients corresponded to borderline eutrophic/mesotrophic conditions in the lake. Of the combined loads, 62 percent of the total nitrogen, 70 percent of the total Kjeldahl nitrogen, 54 percent of the total inorganic nitrogen, and 47 percent of the total phosphorus originated from the forested subbasin of Big Creek. The more residential and agricultural subbasins of Crooked Creek and Hamilton Creek, however, yielded over twice the total phosphorus load per hectare of land use. Crooked and Hamilton Creek subbasins also had higher yields of the more bioavailable total inorganic nitrogen. A simplistic empirical model could not explain the relation between year-to-year nutrient contributions to Converse Lake from the tributaries and the lake's ability to assimilate those contributions. The potential presence of pathogens in the lake and its tributaries was assessed based on fecal bacterial concentrations. Fecal bacterial concentrations at some tributary sites were above existing criteria for swimmable uses. Contributions of fecal bacte

Fibroblast and Epidermal Growth Factors Utilize Different Signaling Pathways to Induce Anchorage-independent Cell Transformation in JB6 Cl41 Mouse Skin Epidermal Cells  

PubMed Central

Background: Extracellular stimulation of cells with growth factors such as epidermal growth factor (EGF) induces cell proliferation and cell transformation. Although fibroblast growth factor (FGF) is a well-known family member of growth factors and acts as a ligand of FGF receptor (FGFR), a receptor tyrosine kinase, in cytoplasmic membrane, the tumor promoter potential of FGF has not been clearly understood. Methods: The role of FGF as a tumor promoter was determined measuring its effects of cell proliferation and transformation by the 3-(4,5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl)-5-(3-carboxymethoxyphenyl)-2-(4-sulfophenyl)-2H-tetrazolium and anchorage-independent cell transformation assays, respectively. The antibody specificity of phospho-RSK2 Tyr529 was determined by Western blotting using a purified FGFR kinase domain in vitro and the membrane fraction of JB6 Cl41 cells ex vivo. The signaling pathways mediated by FGF or EGF were determined by the comparisons of phosphorylation inhibitory efficacy using signaling inhibitors including kaempferol. Results: FGF acted as a tumor promoter. FGF induced cell proliferation by stimulation of G1/S cell cycle transition, and anchorage-independent cell transformation in JB6 Cl41 cells. FGF-induced FGFR phosphorylation was suppressed by kaempferol treatment in a dose dependent manner. Interestingly, FGF stimulation utilized a non-canonical signaling pathway to activate RSK2 and activating transcription factor (ATF)-1, which was not transduced by EGF stimulation. Importantly, kaempferol inhibited tyrosine phosphorylation of FGFR by FGF stimulation and nuclear accumulation of phospho-ATF-1 at Ser63. Moreover, although kaempferol, 4’-N-benzoyl staurosporine (PKC412), 2-(2’-amino-3’-methoxyphenyl)oxanaphthalen-4-one (PD98059) and 1,4-diamino-2,3-dicyano-1,4-bis(2-aminophenylthio)buta-diene (U0126) inhibited EGF-induced anchorage-independent cell transformation in JB6 Cl41 cells, FGF-induced cell transformation in soft agar was only inhibited by PKC412 and kaempferol, but not by PD98059 and U0126. Conclusions: FGF acts as a tumor promoter and dual inhibition of kaempferol on the kinase activities of FGFR3 and RSK2 suppresses the FGF-induced neoplastic cell transformation through a non-canonical signaling pathway which is not utilized by EGF stimulation.

Taxing junk food: applying the logic of the Henry tax review to food.  

PubMed

The recent review of taxation in Australia - the Henry tax review - has recommended that the federal government increase the taxes already levied on tobacco and alcohol. Tobacco and alcohol taxes are put forward as the best way of reducing the social harms caused by the use and misuse of these substances. Junk foods have the same pattern of misuse and the same social costs as tobacco and alcohol. The Henry tax review rejects the idea of taxing fatty foods, and to date the government has not implemented a tax on junk food. We propose that a tax on junk food be implemented as a tool to reduce consumption and address the obesity epidemic. PMID:20955126

Osler's Pupil, Henry W. Ochsner, MD (1877-1902): His Life, Lineage, and Death  

PubMed Central

In multiple editions of his Principles and Practice of Medicine, a 1904 speech, and his essay “A Student Life,” Sir William Osler mentions and laments the death due to typhoid of his pupil, Henry W. Ochsner (1877–1902). Harvey Cushing, MD, in his biography of Osler, describes how deeply Osler was moved by “poor” Ochsner's death. Yet little is known about Ochsner. This article describes the life story, lineage, and death of Henry W. Ochsner, MD, a son of Swiss pioneers who settled in Waumandee, Wisconsin. He was a member of a family that includes medical luminaries (e.g., Albert J. Ochsner, MD, the famous Chicago surgeon, and Alton Ochsner, MD, the founder of the Ochsner Clinic); a brilliant student and physician; a humble and beloved fellow citizen; and a favorite pupil of Osler.

The delusion of the Master: the last days of Henry James.  

PubMed

The novelist Henry James shared with his brother William, the author of the Principles of Psychology, a deep interest in the ways in which personal identity is built through one's history and experiences. At the end of his life, Henry James suffered a vascular stroke in the right hemisphere and developed a striking identity delusion. He dictated in a perfectly clear and coherent manner two letters as if they were written by Napoleon Bonaparte. He also showed signs of reduplicative paramnesia. Negative symptoms resulting from right hemisphere damage may disrupt the feelings of "warmth and intimacy and immediacy" and the "resemblance among the parts of a continuum of feelings (especially bodily feelings)", which are the foundation of personal identity according to William James. On the other hand, a left hemisphere receiving inadequate input from the damaged right hemisphere may produce positive symptoms such as delusional, confabulatory narratives. Other fragments dictated during Henry James's final disease reveal some form of insight, if partial and disintegrated, into his condition. Thus, even when consciousness is impaired by brain damage, something of its deep nature may persist, as attested by the literary characteristics of the last fragments of the Master. PMID:24057119

Partial tear of the flexor hallucis longus at the knot of Henry: presentation of three cases.  

PubMed

The flexor hallucis longus (FHL) tendon is susceptible to injury along its entire course from the posterior aspect of the ankle to its insertion into the base of the distal phalanx of the great toe. Various lacerations, ruptures, longitudinal splits, and stenosing tenosynovitis have been noted. This report documents three cases of longitudinal split of the FHL at the knot of Henry. The diagnosis of this entity is based solely on history and physical examination. Patients with this problem have experienced either an acute or chronic repetitive hyperextension of the hallux metatarsophalangeal joint. They complain of pain with prolonged walking and running and have tenderness with palpation of the knot of Henry (the anatomical crossover between the FHL and the flexor digitorum longus) about one thumb-breadth lateral to the tuberosity of the navicular. Noninvasive imaging studies, including ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging, are not helpful in establishing this diagnosis. Surgical treatment includes release of the knot of Henry, debridement and repair of the longitudinal split in the FHL, and excision of the interconnecting tendon between the FHL and the flexor digitorum longus. All three patients presented in this report have obtained long-term satisfactory relief of their symptoms with surgical treatment. PMID:9127116

Algebraic Bethe ansätze and eigenvalue-based determinants for Dicke–Jaynes–Cummings–Gaudin quantum integrable models  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

In this work, we construct an alternative formulation to the traditional algebraic Bethe ansätze for quantum integrable models derived from a generalized rational Gaudin algebra realized in terms of a collection of spins 1/2 coupled to a single bosonic mode. The ensemble of resulting models which we call Dicke–Jaynes–Cummings–Gaudin models are particularly relevant for the description of light–matter interaction in the context of quantum optics. Having two distinct ways to write any eigenstate of these models we then combine them in order to write overlaps and form factors of local operators in terms of partition functions with domain wall boundary conditions. We also demonstrate that they can all be written in terms of determinants of matrices whose entries only depend on the eigenvalues of the conserved charges. Since these eigenvalues obey a much simpler set of quadratic Bethe equations, the resulting expressions could then offer important simplifications for the numerical treatment of these models.

Best values of parameters for interacting HDE with GO IR-cutoff in Brans-Dicke cosmology  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We investigate the interacting holographic dark energy (HDE) with Granda-Oliveros (GO) infrared (IR)-cutoff in the framework of Brans-Dicke (BD) cosmology. We obtain the equation of state (EoS) parameter of HDE, wD, the effective EoS parameter weff, the deceleration parameter q and the squared of sound speed vs2 in a flat Friedmann-Robertson-Walker (FRW) universe. We show that at late-time the cosmic coincidence problem can be alleviated. Also we show that for noninteracting case, HDE can give a unified dark matter-dark energy (DM-DE) profile in BD cosmology, except that it cannot solve the coincidence problem in the future. By studying the EoS parameter, we see that the phantom divide may be crossed. Using the latest observational data, we calculate the best values of the parameters for interacting HDE in BD framework. Computing the deceleration parameter implies that the transition from deceleration to the acceleration phase occurred for redshift z ? 0.5. Finally, we investigate the sound stability of the model, and find that HDE with Granda-Oliveros (GO)-cutoff in the framework of BD cosmology can lead to a stable DE-dominated universe favored by observations, provided we take ? = 0.44 and b2 < 0.35. This is in contrast to HDE model in Einstein gravity which does not lead to a stable DE-dominated universe.

Combining red- and blue-detuned optical potentials to form a Lamb-Dicke trap for a single neutral atom  

E-print Network

We propose and demonstrate a scheme for strongly radially confining a single neutral atom in a bichromatic far-off resonance optical dipole trap(BFORT) . BFORT is composed of a blue-detuned Laguerre-Gaussian $LG^1_ 0$ beam and a red-detuned Gaussian beam. The trapping radial dimension of a single atom trapped in the Gaussian FORT can be greatly compressed by imposing a blue-detuned Laguerre-Gaussian $LG^1_ 0$ beam with moderate potential depth. By modulating the potential depth of the Gaussian FORT we observed that the resonant and parametric excitation of the oscillatory motion of a single atom in this BFORT and obtained the oscillation frequency that well fits prediction from the theoretical model. The frequency measurement shows that effective trapping dimension can be greatly sharper than that diffraction limited of microscopic objective we used. Then we show that the excess scattering rate due to imposing blue detuned light can be eliminated when single atoms is close to ground-state theoretically. So BFORT suits the purpose of acting as a Lamb-Dicke trap for further cooling a single neutral atom to motion ground-state and finding application in quantum information progressing.

Experimentally feasible set of criteria detecting genuine multipartite entanglement in n-qubit Dicke states and in higher-dimensional systems  

SciTech Connect

We construct a set of criteria detecting genuine multipartite entanglement in arbitrary dimensional multipartite systems. These criteria are optimally suited for detecting multipartite entanglement in n-qubit Dicke states with m excitations, as shown in exemplary cases. Furthermore, they can be employed to detect multipartite entanglement in different states related to quantum cloning, decoherence-free communication, and quantum secret sharing. In a detailed analysis, we show that the criteria are also more robust to noise than any other criterion known so far, especially with increasing system size. Furthermore, it is shown that the number of required local observables scales only polynomially with size, thus making the criteria experimentally feasible.

The Henry reaction between benzaldehyde and nitromethane catalyzed by a cyclophane-based bisthiourea has been studied with density functional theory [M06-2X-D3/def2-TZVPP/IEFPCM//TPSS-D2/6-31G(d)/IEFPCM]. The results of our study reveal that the transformation involves the reaction of a thiourea-nitronate complex with the uncoordinated aldehyde. On the basis of our calculations, the formation of the major stereoisomer is kinetically preferred. Employing smaller model systems, we show that the observed stereoselectivity arises primarily from differences in hydrogen bonding in diastereomeric transition states. PMID:24927014

Temperature Dependence of Henry's Law Constant for Hydrogen Cyanide. Generation of Trace Standard Gaseous Hydrogen Cyanide

Primary data for the temperature dependent solubility of HCN in water do not presently exist for low concentrations of HCN at environmentally or physiologically relevant temperatures. Henry’s Law constant (KH, M/atm) for the vapor-solution equilibrium of HCN was determined in 0.1 M sodium phosphate buffer (adjusted to pH 9.00±0.03 at 296.6±0.1 K) from 287–311 K. Stable gas phase concentrations of HCN are generated by established techniques, via air equilibration of aqueous cyanide partitioned by a microporous membrane. The effluent gaseous HCN, in equilibrium with the constant temperature aqueous cyanide, was collected in dilute NaOH and determined by a spectrophotometrically using cobinamide. The KH of HCN may be expressed as ln KH (M/atm) = (8205.7±341.9)/T ? (25.323±1.144); r2 = 0.9914) where T is the absolute temperature in K. This corresponds to 9.02 and 3.00 M/atm at 25 and 37.4 °C, respectively, compared to actual measurements of 9.86 and 3.22 at 25.0 and 37.8 °C, respectively. The technique also allows for convenient generation of trace levels of HCN at ppbv-ppmv levels that can be further diluted. PMID:20302333

Detroit Publishing Company Online Exhibit: Henry Ford Museum and Greenfield Village  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

From 1895 to 1924, before movies, television, and the Internet fulfilled Americans' desire for pictures, The Detroit Publishing Company (DPC) sent photographers all over the country and to many parts of the world to bring back images to be distributed as prints, postcards, souvenirs, lantern slides, and advertisements. While thousands of DPC images are digitized in the Library of Congress American Memory collection, this online exhibit from the Henry Ford Museum and Greenfield Village provides a look at another slice of the collection, primarily views of the Western United States, both in cities and wilderness, such as cable cars and earthquake damage in San Francisco; a New Mexican Pueblo; or the Lone Star Geyser, Yellowstone National Park. The site is arranged for easy browsing, with groups of 20 - 40 photographs arranged into categories such as Cityscapes, Everyday Life, Michigan Views, and Nature. Many of the photographs are by William Henry Jackson, probably the best known 19th century landscape photographer. Try the "DPC History" and "How Did they Do It?" sections of the Web site for more information about Jackson, other DPC photographers, and how DPC created and distributed the pictures they made.

Smog chamber experiments to investigate Henry's law constants of glyoxal using different seed aerosols  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Aerosols play an important role in the chemistry and physics of the atmosphere. Hence, they have a direct as well as an indirect impact on the earth's climate. Depending on their formation, one distinguishes between primary and secondary aerosols[1]. Important groups within the secondary aerosols are the secondary organic aerosols (SOAs). In order to improve predictions about these impacts on the earth's climate the existing models need to be optimized, because they still underestimate SOA formation[2]. Glyoxal, the smallest ?-dicarbonyl, not only acts as a tracer for SOA formation but also as a direct contributor to SOA. Because glyoxal has such a high vapour pressure, it was common knowledge that it does not take part in gas-particle partitioning and therefore has no impact on direct SOA formation. However, the Henry's law constant for glyoxal is surprisingly high. This has been explained by the hydration of the aldehyde groups, which means that a species with a lower vapour pressure is produced. Therefore the distribution of glyoxal between gas- and particle phase is atmospherically relevant and the direct contribution of glyoxal to SOA can no longer be neglected. A high salt concentration present in chamber seed aerosols leads to an enhanced glyoxal uptake into the particle. This effect is called "salting-in". The salting effect depends on the composition of the seed aerosol as well as the soluble compound. For very polar compounds, like glyoxal, a "salting-in" is observed[3]. Glyoxal particle formation during a smog chamber campaign at Paul-Scherrer-Institut (PSI) in Switzerland was examined using different seed aerosols such as ammonium sulfate, sodium chloride and sodium nitrate. The aim of this campaign was to investigate Henry's law constants for different seed aerosols. During the campaign filter samples were taken to investigate the amount of glyoxal in the particle phase. After filter extraction, the analyte was derivatized and measured using UHPLC-ESI-HR-MS. Additionally, gas-phase glyoxal has been analysed during the campaign. The results will be used to calculate the Henry's law constants. In this work, first results of the glyoxal study are presented.

Significance of the Henri-Michaelis-Menten theory in abiotic catalysis: catechol oxidation by ?-MnO 2  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The Henri-Michaelis-Menten theory, for more than eight decades, was only restricted to homogeneous enzymatic catalysis. A mimic of an enzymatic kinetics based on the Henri-Michaelis-Menten concept was experimentally observed in heterogeneous catalysis in the present study with ?-MnO 2 as an abiotic catalyst in the oxidation of catechol (1,2-dihydroxybenzene). Using the derived linear forms of Lineweaver-Burk or Hofstee, the data show that similar to the enzyme tyrosinase, the kinetics of the catechol oxidation catalyzed by ?-MnO 2 can be described by the Henri-Michaelis-Menten equation, V0= VmaxS/( Km+ S), where Vmax is the maximum velocity and Km the concentration of the substrate ( S) corresponding to an initial velocity ( V0) half of Vmax. By analogy to the enzymatic kinetics, the parameters Vmax and Km for an heterogeneous abiotic catalysis were derived for the first time. Further, based on the concentration of the active centers of the mineral oxide, the kinetic constants kcat and kcat/ Km, respectively, representing the turnover frequency and the efficiency of the mineral catalyst, were also determined from the derived general rate equation of Briggs and Haldane. As an abiotic catalyst, ?-MnO 2 has a paramount role in the oxidation of phenolic compounds in soil, sediment and water environments. Therefore, the present observation is of fundamental and practical significance in elucidating the affinity between an abiotic catalyst and a substrate based on the Henri-Michaelis-Menten theory.

AP-1, NF-kappa-B, and ERK activation thresholds for promotion of neoplastic transformation in the mouse epidermal JB6 model.  

PubMed Central

The promotion-sensitive mouse epidermal JB6 cells (clone 41) have been used to identify the tumor-promoting activity of various compounds. Because treatment by tumor promoters [12-O-tetradecanoylphorbol-13-acetate (TPA), epidermal growth factor (EGF), or tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-alpha)] transforms clone 41 cells to anchorage-independent and tumorigenic phenotypes, they are considered to be undergoing late-stage tumor promotion. Here we address the question of how much activation of transformation-relevant transcription factors [activator protein-1 (AP-1), ternary complex factors (TCFs), or nuclear factor kappa-B (NF-kappa-B)] is required for transformation response and how much tumor promoter produces significant risk of transformation. Stable transfectants harboring a reporter construct with an AP-1 response element, serum-response element (SRE), or NF-kappa-B response element were established. We examined the relationship between concentration of tumor promoters, key signaling events, and activation of the transcription factors. A concentration of > 0.2 nM TPA or 0.12 ng/mL (0.02 nM) EGF produced a significant increase in transformation response as well as in extracellular signal-regulated protein kinase (ERK), SRE, or AP-1 activation. Treatment with > 0.4 U/mL (2.35 pM) TNF-alpha increased NF-kappa-B activity and transformation response in a dose-dependent manner. However, transformation response decreased at > 33 U/mL TNF-alpha due to a cytotoxic response. These findings suggest that the signaling pathway leading to the activation of ERK, TCF, and AP-1 proteins constitutes a major factor determining the risk of tumor promotion by TPA or EGF. Cell toxicity in addition to NF-kappa-B activation should be considered in predicting TNF-alpha-induced transformation response. PMID:12204819

The biologist as psychologist: Henry fairfield osborn's early mental ability investigations.  

PubMed

In the early 1880s, biologist Henry Fairfield Osborn conducted some of the first questionnaire research in American psychology. This article details how he came to distribute Francis Galton's questionnaire on mental imagery in the United States, as well as how he altered it to suit his own burgeoning psychological research interests. The development and circulation of questionnaires at the very beginning of American scientific psychology, first by Osborn and later by G. Stanley Hall, is discussed in terms of the new psychology's often-overlooked methodological plurality. Further, Osborn's late nineteenth century interest in individual variation and group differences in mental imagery ability are discussed in relation to his pervasive educational and social concerns, as well as his eventual status as a prominent eugenicist in the twentieth century United States. This research into mental imagery ability foreshadows the eugenic-oriented intelligence testing that developed in the early twentieth century. PMID:22589139

An improved approach for measuring Henry's law coefficients of atmospheric organics  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

In this work, we present an improved method for Henry's law constant, KH, measurements by coupling a bubble column system with a gas cell/infrared spectrometer. To demonstrate the feasibility of this approach, we measured KH of atmospheric organics from three different classes, namely, toluene (hydrocarbon), sec-butylamine (amine), and cineole (ether). We also reported temperature and ionic strength effects on the KH values of sec-butylamine for the first time. As shown in this work, the method is highly capable of determining KH of atmospheric organic species regardless the presence of heteroatoms and the occurrence of hydration in water. It is very versatile, easy to use, reliable, and efficient. It is also well-suited for undergraduate students to conduct environmental chemical science research during academic semesters.

The personality and health of King Henry VIII (1491-1547).  

PubMed

The projection of Henry VIII in the first half of his reign, which began in 1509, is of a magnificent and accomplished 'imperial prince', the possessor of superb physical health. In 1528, when aged 37, he showed a marked change in personality due, it is here argued, to depressive illness, from which he recovered by the mid-1530s. Such ill health has not been recognized previously and it engenders a need for a reassessment of his character and actions during these years of illness. He did not suffer from syphilis and the well-known leg ulcers were less incapacitating than has been described in the past. This truly enormous and overweight man was 55 years old when he died in 1547 in chronic heart failure. PMID:16059531

Style and non-style in anatomical illustration: From Renaissance Humanism to Henry Gray  

PubMed Central

Style is a familiar category for the analysis of art. It is less so in the history of anatomical illustration. The great Renaissance and Baroque picture books of anatomy illustrated with stylish woodcuts and engravings, such as those by Charles Estienne, Andreas Vesalius and Govard Bidloo, showed figures in dramatic action in keeping with philosophical and theological ideas about human nature. Parallels can be found in paintings of the period, such as those by Titian, Michelangelo and Hans Baldung Grien. The anatomists also claimed to portray the body in an objective manner, and showed themselves as heroes of the discovery of human knowledge. Rembrandt’s painting of Dr Nicholas Tulp is the best-known image of the anatomist as hero. The British empirical tradition in the 18th century saw William Cheselden and William Hunter working with techniques of representation that were intended to guarantee detailed realism. The ambition to portray forms life-size led to massive volumes, such as those by Antonio Mascagni. John Bell, the Scottish anatomist, criticized the size and pretensions of the earlier books and argued for a plain style adapted to the needs of teaching and surgery. Henry Gray’s famous Anatomy of 1858, illustrated by Henry Vandyke Carter, aspired to a simple descriptive mode of functional representation that avoided stylishness, resulting in a style of its own. Successive editions of Gray progressively saw the replacement of Gray’s method and of all his illustrations. The 150th anniversary edition, edited by Susan Standring, radically re-thinks the role of Gray’s book within the teaching of medicine. PMID:20447244

Temperature dependencies of the Henry's law constant and the aqueous phase dissociation constant of bromine chloride  

SciTech Connect

Modeling ozone depletion observed in the Arctic troposphere requires mass transport of halogen species between the aqueous and the gas phases, which is proportional to its Henry's Law constant (H{sub x}). UV measurements are made in both the aqueous and gas phases to determine the solubility (H{sub BrCl} = [BrCl(aq)]/[BrCl(g)]RT) of BrCl (279--299 K). The gas-phase absorbance spectrum (330--450 nm, 1 nm intervals) is fit for [BrCl(g)], [Br{sub 2}(g)], and [Cl{sub 2}(g)], while the absorbance value at 343 nm is used to determine [BrCl(aq)] (and [BrCl{sub 2}{sup {minus}}]). Dissociation (K{sub aq} = [Br{sub 2}(aq)][Cl{sub 2}(aq)]/[BrCl(aq)]{sup 2}) data are obtained from K{sub aq} = H{sub Cl2}H{sub Br2}K{sub g}/H{sub BrCl}{sup 2} where H{sub Cl2}, H{sub Br2}, and K{sub g} have analogous definitions to H{sub BrCl} and K{sub aq}. Comparison of Henry's Law constants in Table 2 reveals that the order of solubility at 298.2 is BrCl > Br{sub 2} {much{underscore}gt} Cl{sub 2}. At temperatures relevant to the Arctic, BrCl is much more soluble than Br{sub 2} because of differences in {Delta}H{degree}. Consequently, the relative flux of BrCl from the aqueous to the gas phase should not be as large as that of Br{sub 2}. Comparison of dissociation constants in Table 2 reveals the relatively high degree of association of BrCl with H{sub 2}O molecules in the aqueous phase.

Discharge ratings for control structures at McHenry Dam on the Fox River, Illinois  

USGS Publications Warehouse

Twenty-three measurement of discharge were used to determine discharge ratings for the five adjustable sluice gates, spillway and fish ladder at McHenry Dam on the Fox River in Illinois. Discharge ratings were determined for free weir, free orifice, and submerged orifice flow regimes. Hydraulic conditions that identify flow regimes at McHenry Dam are defined by ratios between headwater depth (h1), tailwater depth (h3), and gate opening (hg). Flow under the sluice gates is identified as weir flow when the ratio of gate opening to headwater depth is greater than 0.73, and as orifice flow when hg/H1 is less than 0.73. Free orifice flow occurs when the ratio of tailwater depth to gate opening is less than 1.3, and submerged orifice flow occurs when h3/hg is greater than 1.3. Flow under the sluice gates is identified as free weir flow when the ratio of tailwater depth to headwater depth is less than 0.75, and as submerged weir flow when h3/h1 is greater than 0.75. Flow over the spillway is identified as free weir flow when the ratio of tailwater depth to headwater depth is less than 0.60, and as submerged weir flow when h3/h1 is greater than 0.60. Discharge coefficients to be used in equations to compute discharge for various hydraulic conditions were determined. Four discharge measurement, ranging from 169 to 2990 cu ft/sec, were used to define discharge coefficients that varies from 2.61 to 3.14 for free weir flow over the spillway. Nineteen discharge measurements, ranging from 180 to 4050 cu ft/sec, were used to define discharge coefficients for free weir, free orifice, and submerged orifice flow under the sluice gates. The average value of the discharge coefficient for free weir flow under the sluice gates is 3.17. Discharge coefficients for free orifice flow varied from 0.48 to 0.66 and the discharge coefficients for submerged orifice flow from the two measurements were 0.59 and 0.67. (Author 's abstract)

Asymmetric synthesis of highly functionalized tetrahydropyrans via a one-pot organocatalytic Michael/Henry/ketalization sequence.  

PubMed

A diastereo- and enantioselective Michael/Henry/ketalization sequence to functionalized tetrahydropyrans is described. The multicomponent cascade reaction uses acetylacetone or ?-keto esters, ?-nitrostyrenes, and alkynyl aldehydes as substrates affording tetrahydropyrans with five contiguous stereocenters. Employing a bifunctional quinine-based squaramide organocatalyst, the title compounds are obtained in moderate to good yields (27-80%), excellent enantiomeric excesses (93-99% ee), and high diastereomeric ratios (dr > 20:1) after one crystallization.

The pleasures and perils of prophetic advocacy: Henry E. Sigerist and the politics of medical reform.  

PubMed Central

Henry E. Sigerist, an internationally renowned medical historian, played a surprisingly important and visible role in American medical politics in the 1930s and 1940s. Born in Paris of Swiss parents, he was professor in Leipzig, Germany, before coming to the United States in 1932 as professor of the history of medicine at Johns Hopkins University. Once in America. Sigerist became deeply involved in medical politics and the campaign for national health insurance. He argued that individualized medical practice was outdated and should gradually be superseded by state-run and state-financed health services. National health insurance was but one step in this historical progression. Sigerist thus lent the weight of history itself to the cause of medical care reform. The charming and erudite Sigerist was welcomed by the leaders of academic medicine in America. Soon, he emerged as a spokesman of the left wing of the medical profession, an effective and popular speaker and an impassioned advocate of socialized medicine. This paper traces Sigerist's political ideas and activities, and his contributions toward medical care reform in the United States. Images p1639-a p1642-a PMID:8916536

Henry Cavendish (1731-1810): hydrogen, carbon dioxide, water, and weighing the world.  

PubMed

Henry Cavendish (1731-1810) was an outstanding chemist and physicist. Although he was not a major figure in the history of respiratory physiology he made important discoveries concerning hydrogen, carbon dioxide, atmospheric air, and water. Hydrogen had been prepared earlier by Boyle but its properties had not been recognized; Cavendish described these in detail, including the density of the gas. Carbon dioxide had also previously been studied by Black, but Cavendish clarified its properties and measured its density. He was the first person to accurately analyze atmospheric air and reported an oxygen concentration very close to the currently accepted value. When he removed all the oxygen and nitrogen from an air sample, he found that there was a residual portion of about 0.8% that he could not characterize. Later this was shown to be argon. He produced large amounts of water by burning hydrogen in oxygen and recognized that these were its only constituents. Cavendish also worked on electricity and heat. However, his main contribution outside chemistry was an audacious experiment to measure the density of the earth, which he referred to as "weighing the world." This involved determining the gravitational attraction between lead spheres in a specially constructed building. Although this was a simple experiment in principle, there were numerous complexities that he overcame with meticulous attention to experimental details. His result was very close to the modern accepted value. The Cavendish Experiment, as it is called, assures his place in the history of science. PMID:24793169

Reduction of Systematic Errors in Diagnostic Receivers Through the Use of Balanced Dicke-Switching and Y-Factor Noise Calibrations  

SciTech Connect

Receivers designed for diagnostic applications range from those having moderate sensitivity to those possessing large dynamic range. Digital receivers have a dynamic range which are a function of the number of bits represented by the ADC and subsequent processing. If some of this range is sacrificed for extreme sensitivity, noise power can then be used to perform two-point load calibrations. Since load temperatures can be precisely determined, the receiver can be quickly and accurately characterized; minute changes in system gain can then be detected, and systematic errors corrected. In addition, using receiver pairs in a balanced approach to measuring X+, X-, Y+, Y-, reduces systematic offset errors from non-identical system gains, and changes in system performance. This paper describes and demonstrates a balanced BPM-style diagnostic receiver, employing Dicke-switching to establish and maintain real-time system calibration. Benefits of such a receiver include wide bandwidth, solid absolute accuracy, improved position accuracy, and phase-sensitive measurements. System description, static and dynamic modelling, and measurement data are presented.

Abraham Pais Prize for History of Physics Talk: Henry Cavendish, John Michell, Weighing the Stars  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

This talk is about an interaction between two 18th-century natural philosophers (physical scientists), Henry Cavendish and John Michell, and its most important outcome, the experiment of weighing the world (their name for it) using a torsion balance (our name for it). Michell was the most inventive of the 18th century English natural philosophers, and Cavendish was the first of his countrymen to possess abilities at all comparable with Newton's. By their interests and skills, they were drawn to one another. Both were universal natural philosophers, equally adept at building scientific instruments, performing experiments, constructing theory, and using mathematics; both had a penchant for exacting, quantitative work. Both also had fitful habits of publication, which did not begin to reveal the range of their work, to the mystification of later scientists and historians. Late in life, Cavendish and Michell turned their attention to the force that Newton had examined most completely, a singular triumph of his natural philosophy, the force of universal gravitation. Over the course of the 18th century, abundant evidence of attraction had been gathered from the motions of the earth, moon, planets, and comets, phenomena which span the intermediate range of masses, sizes, and distances. But in three domains of experience, involving the extreme upper and lower limits of masses and dimensions, the universality of gravitation remained an article of faith. These were the gravity of the ``fixed'' stars, the mutual attraction of terrestrial bodies, and the gravitation of light and other special substances. Michell took on himself the task of deducing observable consequences from each of these prospective instances of universal gravitation. Cavendish encouraged Michell, and he followed up the resulting observational and experimental questions. The experiment of weighing the world was the last experiment Mitchell planned and the last experiment Cavendish published. The capstone of two distinguished careers, the experiment outlived the world in which it was conceived and carried out. Today gravitation is at the center of the physics of the very small and the very large, and experiments that followed in Michell and Cavendish's footsteps find a place in it. The ``most important advance in experiments on gravitation,'' to quote an authority, ``was the introduction of the torsion balance'' by Michell and Cavendish and independently by Coulomb; ``it has been the basis of all the most significant experiments on gravitation ever since.'' Another authority traces the ``noble tradition of precision measurement to which we are heirs'' to Cavendish's experiment, which he calls the ``first modern physics experiment.''

The photodegradation of cadmium yellow paints in Henri Matisse's Le Bonheur de vivre (1905-1906)  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Evidence for the alteration of the yellow paints in Henri Matisse's Le Bonheur de vivre (1905-1906, The Barnes Foundation) has been observed since the 1990s. The changes in this iconic work of Matisse's Fauvist period include lightening, darkening, and flaking of the yellow paints. Handheld X-ray fluorescence (XRF) and multispectral imaging surveys reveal that the degradation is confined to cadmium yellow (CdS) paints. The discoloration of cadmium yellow paints in Impressionist, Post-Impressionist and early modernist work from the 1880s through the 1920s has been ascribed to the photo-oxidative degradation of CdS. Preliminary investigations of the degraded yellow paints in this work involved Cd LIII-edge X-ray Absorption Near Edge Spectroscopy (XANES) at the Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Light Source (SSRL Menlo Park, California) and Scanning Electron Microscopy-energy dispersive X-ray analysis (SEM-EDS) at the Winterthur Museum Scientific Research and Analysis Laboratory. To determine if the visual changes in the paints did in fact indicate photo-oxidative degradation and if different chemistries could be observed for the lightened versus darkened regions, synchrotron radiation-micro Fourier Transform InfraRed (SR-?FTIR) spectroscopy, X-ray Fluorescence (SR-?XRF) mapping and micro X-ray Absorption Near Edge Spectroscopy (?XANES) mapping at the Cd LIII-edge of the altered paint cross-sections were carried out at the European synchrotron radiation facility (ESRF, Grenoble, France) beamline ID-21. The goal is to elucidate the discoloration mechanisms observed in the paint using elemental and speciation mapping. The ?XANES mapping and SR-FTIR imaging showed a substantial enrichment of CdCO3 in the off-white surface crust of the faded/discolored CdS paint. This suggests that the CdCO3 is present as an insoluble photodegradation product rather than solely a paint filler or starting reagent. Additionally, oxalates and sulfates were found to be concentrated at the alteration surface.

Alluvial architecture and predictive modeling of the Late Cretaceous John Henry member, Straight Cliffs formation, southern Utah  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Five detailed measured sections (each >175 m), two outcrop gamma ray logs, 2100 paleocurrent measurements, and detailed facies interpretation of high-resolution composite photographs were used to document the vertical and lateral variations of the alluvial architecture of the John Henry Member of the Upper Cretaceous Straight Cliffs Formation (southwest Kaiparowits Plateau, southern Utah). These data interpretations correlate to 24 measured sections and logged cores from previous work in fluvial and paralic facies in the John Henry Member and complement previous correlation to marginal marine facies ˜60 km basinward of the study area. The proximal fluvial strata of the ˜230 m-thick member is divided into seven depositional units (DU) from stratigraphic base to top: DU-0, tidally-influenced channel belts; DU-1, highly amalgamated, laterally accreting channel belts with tidally-influenced channel belts in the upper section; DU-2, laterally extensive (>1.2 km wide), laterally accreting channel belts; DU-3, isolated channel belts (<150 m) embedded within thick floodplain muds; DU-4, clusters of laterally restricted (<500 m), laterally accreting channel belts and isolated channel belts; DU-5, laterally extensive, locally amalgamated, downstream accreting channel belts; and DU-6, highly amalgamated, downstream accreting channel belts. An unconformable surface at the base of DU-1 demonstrates a basinward shift in facies and is interpreted to represent erosion during base level fall. DU-0 correlates basinward to tidally-influenced channel belts and coastal coal mires in the south-central Kaiparowits Plateau that are coeval with the landward extensive, net progradational shoreface sandstones. An unconformity bound, fining upward trend limited to DU-1 through DU-3 in the western plateau is broadly consistent with previous interpretations of a northeast trending incised valley system and fill, which is correlative with a basinward shift and subsequent net transgression of shoreface sandstones. A coarsening upward trend from DU-4 through the overlying Drip Tank Member is consistent throughout alluvial facies of the entire John Henry Member and corresponds to net progradation of landward extensive shoreface sandstones. Reservoir characterization based on grain size, average porosity, net to gross estimates, channel belt size, internal connectivity (heterogeneity) and channel belt connectivity show that these defining trends in fluvial architecture (fining upward and coarsening upward) correspond to trends in reservoir analog quality (upward decreasing and upward increasing) and demonstrate that revised depositional models of alluvial architecture may be used to predict reservoir quality.

The trace of Henri Moissan's pioneer work 100 years ago is clearly evidenced by an overview of achievements in high temperature devices; 1987: "Le four électrique" by Henri Moissan; 1948-1952: "High temperature heating in a cavity rotary kiln using focusing of solar radiation" by Félix Trombe; 1962: "The cavity rotary kiln using focused solar radiation jointly with a plasma gun" by Marc Foëx; 1970: "The rotary kiln with two plasma guns and arc transfer" by Marc Foëx; 1984: "The plasma furnace" by Electricité de France (EDF) at Renardières; 1997: "The plasma furnace" by the Atomic Energy Center (CEA) at Cadarache, the VULCANO program. The first part of this contribution is devoted to Henri Moissan. Re-reading his early book on the electric furnace, especially the first chapter and the sections on silica, carbon vapor and experiments performed in casting molten metal--the conclusions are outstanding--provides modern readers with an amazing insight into future developments. The last two parts are devoted to Félix Trombe and Marc Foëx, tracing the evolution of high temperature cavity processus leading to the solar furnace and the present day plasma furnace at the CEA. Focus is placed on research conducted by the French National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS) with the solar and plasma furnaces at Odeillo. The relationships with Henri Moissan's early work are amazing, offering a well deserved homage to this pioneer researcher. PMID:10365467

How to boost soundscapes with tax breaks-On the application of Henry George's environmental economics to noise annoyance  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The improvement of the characteristic soundscape in a given metropolitan area depends largely on a varied number of parameters not the least of which are economic. The way to sustain a large city not only economically responsible behavior patterns and activities are required, but ecologically viable ones as well. And, not coincidentally, if both patterns come into balance, a reduction of noise annoyance ensues. The cohesive set of measures that would provide the framework to ensure that the necessary economic activity is not antagonistic to (acoustic) ecology is provided by the US economist Henry George who advocated a comprehensive tax on land and all natural resources to replace eventually the bulk of all taxes checking production. New data will be provided in this paper to show the results of the application of a Georgist approach of eco-taxation to the improvement of sound quality and the reduction of noise annoyance.

Shakespeare, genetics, malformations, and the Wars of the Roses: hereditary themes in Henry VI and Richard III.  

PubMed

The four plays in the Henry VI-Richard III sequence well illustrate Shakespeare's recognition of hereditary influences upon the human condition. The inheritance of physical characteristics as manifest particularly by resemblance between fathers and sons is noted frequently. The absence of such resemblance is cited occasionally as evidence of illegitimacy. Personality traits are also viewed as inherited, although less consistently and there are important exceptions. Physical and mental traits when not derived from parents are ascribed to "nature" in the sense in which the term is often used today. Such traits are seen as being congenital or inborn even if not obviously "hereditary." Important exceptions to this are provided by the characters of the two lead characters in the play sequence. The weak-willed Henry VI is markedly different from his father, grandfather, and son who were all valiant, warlike, and brave. Shakespeare never explains this abrupt difference among generations. And the source of the evil character of Richard III is somewhat ambiguous. It seems most likely that in the first three plays of the sequence Shakespeare intended Richard's villainousness to be perceived as innate, caused by the same forces of nature that produced Richard's deformities (which are not further explained). But when Shakespeare wrote Richard III and gave more conscious consideration to what was now his central character he invoked an "environmentalist" explanation. Richard now is presented, albeit somewhat inconsistently, as evil in response to social ostracism because of his ugly deformities. This rather modern interpretation of the social origins of the personality of the deformed is particularly striking because it goes beyond anything in Shakespeare's historical sources, although Francis Bacon, a contemporary of Shakespeare, also recognized the effect of social forces upon the personality of the deformed.

Real-world automotive emissions—Summary of studies in the Fort McHenry and Tuscarora mountain tunnels  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Motor vehicle emission rates of CO, NO, NO x, and gas-phase speciated nonmethane hydrocarbons (NMHC) and carbonyl compounds were measured in 1992 in the Fort McHenry Tunnel under Baltimore Harbor and in the Tuscarora Mountain Tunnel of the Pennsylvania Turnpike, for comparison with emission-model predictions and for calculation of the reactivity of vehicle emissions with respect to O 3 formation. Both tunnels represent a high-speed setting at relatively steady speed. The cars at both sites tended to be newer than elsewhere (median age was < 4 yr), and much better maintained as judged by low CO/CO2 ratios and other emissions characteristics. The Tuscarora Mountain Tunnel is flat, making it advantageous for testing automotive emission models, while in the underwater Fort McHenry Tunnel the impact of roadway grade can be evaluated. MOBILE4.1 and MOBILES gave predictions within ± 50% of observation most of the time. There was a tendency to overpredict, especially with MOBILES and especially at Tuscarora. However, light-duty-vehicle CO, NMHC, and NO x, all were underpredicted by MOBILE4.1 at Fort McHenry. Light-duty-vehicle CO/NOx ratios and NMHC/NO x, ratios were generally a little higher than predicted. The comparability of the predictions to the observations contrasts with a 1987 experiment in an urban tunnel (Van Nuys) where CO and HC, as well as CO/NOx, and NMHC/NO x, ratios, were grossly underpredicted. The effect of roadway grade on gram per mile (g mi -1) emissions was substantial. Fuel-specific emissions (g gal -1), however, were almost independent of roadway grade, which suggests a potential virtue in emissions models based on fuel-specific emissions rather than g mi -1) emissions. Some 200 NMHC and carbonyl emissions species were quantified as to their light- and heavy-duty-vehicle emission rates. The heavy-duty-vehicle NMHC emissions were calculated to possess more reactivity, per vehicle-mile, with respect to O 3 formation (g O 3 per vehicle-mile) than did the light-duty-vehicle NMHC emissions. Per gallon of fuel consumed, the light-duty vehicles had the greater reactivity. Much of the NMHC, and much of their reactivity with respect to O 3 formation, resided in compounds heavier than C 10, mostly from heavy-duty diesel, implying that atmospheric NMHC sampling with canisters alone is inadequate in at least some situations since canisters were found not to be quantitative beyond ˜ C 10 The contrasting lack of compounds heavier than C 10 from light-duty vehicles suggests a way to separate light- and heavy-duty-vehicle contributions in receptor modeling source apportionment. The division between light-duty-vehicle tailpipe and nontailpipe NMHC emissions was ˜ 85% tailpipe and ˜ 15% nontailpipe (evaporative running losses, etc.). Measured CO/CO 2 ratios agreed well with concurrent roadside infrared remote sensing measurements on light-duty vehicles, although remote sensing HC/CO2 ratio measurements were not successful at the low HC levels prevailing. Remote sensing measurements on heavy-duty diesels were obtained for the first time, and were roughly in agreement with the regular (bag sampling) tunnel measurements in both CO/CO2 and HC/CO2 ratios. A number of recommendations for further experiments, measurement methodology development, and emissions model development and evaluation are offered.
