41. Ultra-high resolution alpha particle spectroscopy using calorimetry
Topic: Condensed Matter Physics
Published: 9/23/2008
Authors: Robert D Horansky, Joel Nathan Ullom, James A Beall, Gene C Hilton, Kent D Irwin, Don Dry, Beth Hastings, Stephen Lamont, Clifford R Rudy, Michael W Rabin
Abstract: Calorimetry has been used since the late 1700?s to measure the heat output of physical processes ranging from chemical reactions to the respiration of organisms . Calorimetry is performed by measuring the temperature change caused by heat release int ...

42. Shear Thinning Near the Critical Point of Xenon
Topic: Condensed Matter Physics
Published: 4/17/2008
Authors: Robert F Berg, Michael R Moldover, M Yao, G A Zimmerli
Abstract: We measured shear thinning, a viscosity decrease ordinarily associated with complex liquids, near the critical point of xenon. The data span the range of reduced shear rates: 0.001 < {gamma}{tau} < 700, where {gamma}{tau} is the shear rate scal ...

43. Temperature-Dependent Behavior of PbSc^d1/2^Nb^d1/2^O^d3^ From First Principles
Topic: Condensed Matter Physics
Published: 7/1/2001
Authors: Eric J Cockayne, Benjamin P Burton, L Bellaiche
Abstract: We study the ferroelectric phase transition in PbSc1/2Nb1/2O3 (PSN) using a first-principles effective Hamiltonian approach. Results for PSN with NaCl-type ordering of Sc and Nb on the B sites shows that a Pb-centered effective Hamiltonian is approp ...

44. Frequency Dependence of a Cryogenic Capacitor Measured Using Single Electron Tunneling Devices
Topic: Condensed Matter Physics
Published: 12/1/2000
Authors: Ali L Eichenberger, Mark W Keller, John M. Martinis, Neil M Zimmerman
Abstract: A new type of capacitance standrd based on counting electrons has been built. The operation of the standrd has already given very promising results for the determination of the value of a cryogenic vacuum-gap capacitor. The new capacitance standard o ...
