  • Zollman, Dean A.; Colicchia, G; Wiesner, H; Sen, Ahmet Ilhan (American Association of Physics Teachers, 2008)
  • Schmit, Jeremy D. (2013)
    The growth of amyloid fibrils requires a disordered or partially unfolded protein to bind to the fibril and adapt the same conformation and alignment established by the fibril template. Since the H-bonds stabilizing the ...
  • Xu, Junliang; Blaga, Cosmin I.; DiChiara, Anthony D.; Sistrunk, Emily; Zhang, Kaikai; Chen, Zhangjin; Le, Anh-Thu; Morishita, Toru; Lin, Chii Dong; Agostini, Pierre; DiMauro, Louis F. (2012)
    Recently, using midinfrared laser-induced electron diffraction (LIED), snapshots of a vibrating diatomic molecule on a femtosecond time scale have been captured [C. I. Blaga et al., Nature (London) 483, 194 (2012)]. In ...
  • Sayre, Eleanor C.; Franklin, Scott V.; Dymek, Stephanie; Clark, Jessica; Sun, Yifei (2012)
    We present data from a between-student study on student response to questions on Newton’s third law given in two introductory calculus-based physics classes (Mechanics and Electromagnetism) at a large northeastern university. ...
  • Mulholland, George W.; Zhou, Lei; Zachariah, Michael R.; Heinson, William R.; Chakrabarti, Amit; Sorensen, Christopher M. (2013)
    Motivated by light scattering experiments showing enhanced intensity of electric field aligned nano-agglomerates vs. randomly oriented nano-agglomerates, we address the theoretical basis for this effect by applying the ...
  • Paneru, Govind; Thapa, Prem S.; McBride, Sean P.; Ramm, Adam; Law, Bruce M.; Flanders, Bret N. (2012)
    Maneuverable, high aspect ratio poly 3-4 ethylene dioxythiophene (PEDOT) fibers are fabricated for use as cellular force probes that can interface with individual pseudopod adhesive contact sites without forming unintentional ...
  • Wysin, Gary M.; Moura-Melo, W. A.; Mol, L. A. S.; Pereira, A. R. (2012)
    The energetics of thin elongated ferromagnetic nano-islands is considered for some different shapes, aspect ratios, and applied magnetic field directions. These nano-island particles are important for artificial spin-ice ...
  • Lomsadze, Bachana; Fehrenbach, Charles W.; DePaola, Brett D. (2013)
    Direct frequency comb spectroscopy is currently one of the most precise techniques for studying the internal structure of atomic and molecular systems. In this technique, a train of ultrafast laser pulses excites states ...
  • Crandall, Sara R.; Ratra, Bharat V. (2014)
    We present median statistics central values and ranges for 12 cosmological parameters, using 582 measurements (published during 1990–2010) collected by [9]. On comparing to the recent Planck Collaboration [1] estimates of ...
  • McBride, Dyan L.; Zollman, Dean A.; Rebello, N. Sanjay (2010)
    In prior research, the classification of concepts into three types—descriptive, hypothetical and theoretical—has allowed for the association of students’ use of different concept types with their level of understanding. ...
  • Ploscariu, Nicoleta; Szoszkiewicz, Robert (2013)
    We postulate that one will be able to quantitatively infer changes in the mechanical properties of proteins, cells, and other biological objects (BO) by measuring the shifts of several thermally excited resonance frequencies ...
  • Zollman, Dean A.; Colicchia, G; Wiesner, H; Waltner, C (American Association of Physics Teachers, 2008)
  • Kübel, M.; Betsch, K. J.; Kling, Nora G.; Alnaser, A. S.; Schmidt, J.; Kleineberg, U.; Deng, Y.; Ben-Itzhak, Itzik; Paulus, G. G.; Pfeifer, T.; Ullrich, J.; Moshammer, R.; Kling, M. F.; Bergues, B. (2014)
    The transition from the near-single to the multi-cycle regime in non-sequential double ionization of argon is investigated experimentally. Argon atoms are exposed to intense laser pulses with a center wavelength around 790 ...
  • Pavlov, Anatoly; Westmoreland, Shawn; Saaidi, Khaled; Ratra, Bharat V. (2013)
    We generalize the time-variable dark energy scalar field Φ model (ΦCDM) to nonflat space. We show that even in the space-curvature-dominated epoch the scalar field solution is a time-dependent fixed point or attractor, ...
  • Kübel, M.; Kling, Nora G.; Betsch, Kelsie J.; Camus, N.; Kaldun, A.; Kleineberg, U.; Ben-Itzhak, Itzik; Jones, R. R.; Paulus, G. G.; Pfeifer, T.; Ullrich, J.; Moshammer, R.; Kling, Matthias F.; Bergues, B. (2013)
    We present a comparative study of nonsequential double ionization (NSDI) of N[subscript 2] and Ar exposed to near-single-cycle laser pulses. The NSDI process is investigated using carrier-envelope-phase-tagged electron-ion ...
  • Nepal, Arjun; Singh, Gajendra P.; Flanders, Bret N.; Sorensen, Christopher M. (2013)
    A one-step, gas-phase, catalyst-free detonation of hydrocarbon (C[subscript 2]H[subscript 2]) method was developed to produce gram quantities of pristine graphene nanosheets (GNs). The detonation of C[subscript 2]H[subscript ...
  • Morishita, Toru; Lin, Chii Dong (2013)
    We calculated photoelectron energy and momentum spectra and the population of high Rydberg states of lithium atoms by intense 785 nm laser pulses at intensities in the over-the-barrier ionization (OBI) regime. The calculated ...
  • Lupetti, Mattia; Kling, Matthias F.; Scrinzi, Armin (2013)
    A compact high repetition rate attosecond light source based on a standard laser oscillator combined with plasmonic enhancement is analyzed. At repetition rates of tens of MHz, we predict focusable pulses with durations ...
  • Zhang, C.-H.; Thumm, Uwe P. E. (2011)
    The release of conduction-band electrons from a metal surface by a subfemtosecond extreme ultraviolet (XUV) pulse and their propagation through the solid provoke a dielectric response in the solid that acts back on the ...
  • Sorensen, Christopher M. (2013)
    This review describes and demonstrates the Q-space analysis of light scattering by particles. This analysis involves plotting the scattered intensity versus the scattering wave vector q = (4π/λ) sin(θ/2) on a double log ...
