An Introduction to the Interacting Boson Model of the Atomic Nucleus

First, many-boson states are mentioned and boson construction- and annihilation operators are brought. The Hamilton operator of the interacting boson version is expressed when it comes to Casimir operators. the 1st designated case of this version together with electromagnetic transitions is mentioned and in comparison with experimental info.

Vibration and Coupling of Continuous Systems: Asymptotic Methods

Actual difficulties relating vibrations of elastic buildings are one of the so much interesting issues in mathematical and actual learn in addition to in functions within the engineering sciences. This publication addresses the scholar conversant in the ordinary mechanics of continua in addition to experts. The authors begin with an overview of the fundamental tools and lead the reader to investigate difficulties of present curiosity.

Thus this spaser can make a high gain, ∼ 10 THz bandwidth logical amplifier or dynamical memory cell with excellent prospects of applications. The last but not the least regime to consider is that of the pulse pumping in the bistable spaser. 65) is created by a short pulse at t = 0 and simultaneously initial SP population Nn is created. 20). 5h. When the initial SP population exceeds the critical one of Nn = 1 (the blue, green, and red curves), the spaser responds with generating a short (duration less than 100 fs) pulse of the SP population (and the corresponding local fields) within a time 100 fs [panel (g)].

The curves are color-coded and scaled as indicated. The developed spasing in a dipole SP mode will show itself in the far field as an anomalously narrow and intense radiation line. 4f. Note that for the system under consideration, there is a 20 meV red shift of the gain medium fluorescence with respect to the SP line center. It is chosen Quantum Theory of Spaser 17 so as to illustrate the spectral walk-off of the spaser line. For 1% in the excitation rate above the threshold of the spasing [panel (d)], a broad spasing line (red color) appears comparable in intensity to the SP-enhanced spontaneous fluorescence line (blue color).
