Metal Clusters at Surfaces: Structure, Quantum Properties, by Karl-Heinz Meiwes-Broer

By Karl-Heinz Meiwes-Broer

as a result of the interplay with the touch medium, the homes of clusters may possibly swap or maybe disappear. hence the physics of cluster-on-surface platforms -- the most topic of this ebook -- is of basic significance. The ebook addresses a large viewers, from the newcomer to the specialist. ranging from basic suggestions of adsorbate-surface interactions, the amendment of digital houses via electron confinement, and ideas of cluster construction, it elucidates the particular houses of the recent steel nanostructures.

Macroscopic Matter Wave Interferometry (Springer Theses) by Stefan Nimmrichter

By Stefan Nimmrichter

Matter‐wave interferometry is a promising and winning option to discover really macroscopic quantum phenomena and probe the validity of quantum conception on the borderline to the vintage international. certainly, we might quickly witness quantum superpositions with nano to micrometer-sized items. but, venturing deeper into the macroscopic area isn't just an experimental but additionally a theoretical endeavour: new interferometers has to be conceived, resources of noise and decoherence pointed out, measurement results understood and attainable alterations of the idea taken into consideration. This thesis presents the theoretical historical past to contemporary advances in molecule and nanoparticle interferometry. additionally, it includes a actual and goal way to investigate the measure of macroscopicity of such experiments, rating them between different macroscopic quantum superposition phenomena.
