Flory theory of randomly branched polymers

Randomly branched polymer chains (or trees) are a classical subject of polymer physics with connections to the theory of magnetic systems, percolation and critical phenomena. More recently, the model has been reconsidered for RNA, supercoiled DNA and the crumpling of topologically-constrained polymers. While solvable in the ideal case, little is known exactly about randomly branched polymers with volume interactions. Flory theory provides a simple, unifying description for a wide range of branched systems, including isolated trees in good and teta-solvent, and tree melts. In particu ...

Integral Field Unit in Astronomy

School
ASTRONOMY

Integral field Unit (IFU) is an optical instrument enabling us to obtain a 3D view of the galaxy in one shot. The IFU data contain both spectrographic and imaging information of every single pixel of the field. Astronomers use IFU information to measure the motion of gasses ripped out of galaxies, the distance of the galaxies and etc. In this talk, the IFU instrument and its different configurations are introduced. I further demonstrate experimental results derived from existing IFUs data. Finally, our progress in Technology Development Division toward fabricating an IFU for INO340 telescope is reported. ...

Plasmonic (Linear/Nonlinear)- Biomedical Applications

Localized Surface Plasmon Resonance (LSPR) in metallic nanostructures has found lots of different applications over the last decade; integrated optic, energy, material characterization, imaging and medicine. The sensitivity of the SPR to the localized and dynamic characteristics of surrounding makes them a bright candidate as a sensing element for label free characterizations in single molecule level. The resulted enhancement of electric field in SPR can be exploited not only in linear applications, but in nonlinear techniques as well; nonlinear plasmonic .

PARTICLES AND ACCELERATORS

The highest conventional electron energy accelerator, Stanford Linear Accelerator (SLAC), has got an accelerating gradient of 0.001 keV/?m. CERN prepares to test revolutionary plasma based mini-accelerator, promising to shrink costs and size of particle accelerators for science, medical applications and industry significantly. Laser-driven plasma accelerator at Lawrence Berkeley National Lab achieved the acceleration gradient of 10 keV/?m. Magnetic coaxial plasma accelerator, MCPA, provides the highest gradient of 100 keV/?m. IAEA has recognized this device as a first test bench for testing of plasma facing materials, diagnostic development a ...
