2012 BFY Conference, W20: Frontiers in Contemporary Physics Education - Gold Nanoparticle Photoabsorption Lab Experiment & Handouts
Read the Fine Print
Some Rights Reserved
Rating
0.0 stars

This file includes the lab manual write-up for the Au nanosphere and nanorod photoabsorption and scattering Lab experiment for the 2nd year Experimental Contemporary Physics Lab Course. In addition, several handouts are provided along with some additional information for instructors. This work was supported in part by by NSF Awards: ECCS #0701703, DMR #0707740 & DMR #1105121. The experiment can readily be upgraded to an advanced lab by giving more responsibility to the students for lab setup (give them an optical breadboard and parts) and by asking for more in-depth analysis and questions which require more knowledge and experimental skills to answer.

The 3-D Hydrogen Atom Probability Densitites model simulates the probability density of the first few (n = 1, 2, and 3, and associated l and m values) energy eigenstates for the Hydrogen atom (the Coulomb potential). The main window shows the energy level diagram for the solutions to the Coulomb potential in three dimensions. States may be selected either by using the dropdown menu item or by using the energy level diagram and clicking a dark green level, with specific n, l, and m values) which will turn bright green and change the state shown in the 3d visualization window. The probability is shown with a 3d cloud, with higher probability shown as a darker sphere. The simulation uses either simple 3D or Java 3D (if installed) to render the view the probability densities. If Java 3D is not installed, the simulation defaults to simple 3D using Java. The 3-D Hydrogen Atom Probability Densitites model was created using the Easy Java Simulations (EJS) modeling tool. It is distributed as a ready-to-run (compiled) Java archive. Double clicking the ejs_qm_hydrogen3d.jar file will run the program if Java is installed.

50 Years of Electron Biprism -50 Years of Exciting Electron Physics
Read the Fine Print
Rating
0.0 stars

In 1953, Gottfried Moellenstedt invented the electron biprism, more or less by accident, with the serendipity characteristic to him: Aiming at dark-field imaging in an electron microscope, he stretched a thin tungsten wire across the objective aperture to block off the zero beam. However, instead of a dark field image, because of inadvertent charging of the wire under the beam, he found two images of the ZnO-needles serving as an object. Instead of trying the dark field imaging over and over again, he asked what the effect would be if the obtained two images were superimposed. Is coherence given? Moellenstedt, educated by Walther Kossel in diffraction of electron waves, had a vision: Together with his PhD-student Heinrich Dueker, he developed the electron biprism, consisting of a 1 micron m thin wire deliberately chargeable by means of a voltage source, as a beam splitter for coherent superposition of the electron waves passing the filament on the right and on the left. In 1955 they published the first results showing biprism interference fringes [G. Moellenstedt and H. Dueker, Naturwiss. 42, 41 (1955)], which, since then, gave access to the understanding of electron waves and their use for analysis of object structures up to atomic dimensions.

An Analysis of the Technology Education Curriculum of Six Countries
Read the Fine Print
Some Rights Reserved
Rating
0.0 stars

The government of Finland has begun planning a new national curriculum framework for the comprehensive and upper secondary schools. The aim of this study was to find information that could be used in establishing a theoretical basis for planning the technology education curriculum. In order to define the scope and focus of each curriculum element (e.g., rationale, theory, objectives, methods, content, and means of evaluation), the technology education curricula of six different countries were studied: Australia, England, France, The Netherlands, Sweden, and the United States. The rationale for choosing these six countries was that their technology education programs have developed rapidly over the past ten years and profound research, experimental programs, and the development of learning materials have been undertaken, especially in Australia, England, The Netherlands, and the United States. The aim was not to conduct a comparative study of the curricula of other countries. Rather, it was to synthesize theory and practice. A secondary aim was to search for more detailed and concrete curriculum materials for provincial, district, municipal, and school purposes. Although this research was conducted to support Finnish curriculum development, the results may be pertinent to other countries as well. Different countries use different terms to describe technology education, such as technics, design and technology, technology education, and technological education. In this study these titles were considered to be synonymous. Regardless of the term used, the universal goal is to help students to become technologically literate. A model was developed so that the technology education curricula of the selected countries could be systematically analyzed and the important curricular elements could be identified. Assessment practices were not included in the study, although Kimbell's (1997) work in this area must be recognized since he included most of the countries reported herein. The analysis is presented in two phases. First, the curricula of the six countries are summarized. The goal at the outset was to cross tabulate the elements from the curricula; however, it was found that the countries differ to such degree that it was impossible to reach this goal. Curriculum guidelines of the six countries are, however, presented so that the reader can obtain a general understanding of the different curricula. Following this, all six countries are examined more closely using a method of systematic analysis in order to identify both common and unique features of their curricula.

Analysis of the state of modern scientific opinion on the issue of organizing passenger transportation by various modes of transport
Unrestricted Use

Rating
0.0 stars

The scientific research is carried out on the issue of determining current global trends in approaches to the organization of passenger transportation in the operation of various types of transport. The latest publications reflecting the study of the process of passenger transportation by routes of various types of communication were taken into account. It is established that scientists identify many tasks and problems in the organization of passenger transportation. These tasks include determining vehicle schedules, protecting passengers ‘health while driving, ensuring certain conditions for passengers’ comfort before flights start, and many others. Problematic issues include, among other things, the following: driving time, the quality and impact of Station service, the organization of interaction between Station service vehicles, the safety component of the transportation process, determining the impact of service comfort when determining the method of transportation, and others. From the analysis, it is determined that the issue of passenger organization is relevant and is being studied for the processes of passenger transportation from urban to intercontinental routes, and such issues are relevant for all types of transport. It can be noted that the issues of Ecology and passenger Health Protection have recently gained popularity and are considered by scientists when studying the conditions of passengers ‘ stay in the cabin when receiving transportation services. To a large extent, recently the attention of scientists has been drawn to the issue of establishing the comfort of passenger service before traveling at the stages of booking/buying tickets, waiting for a flight on the territories of airports or railway stations. An opinion is expressed about the influence of such comfort on the subconscious decision-making of passengers in determining the method of Transportation. It is noted that the level of Organization of passenger service is a significant factor in planning the station load. Based on the results of the literature analysis, the following conclusions were obtained: the issues of organizing passenger transportation are relevant, the study of the integrated functioning of the passenger transportation system is relevant and implemented by modeling such processes, mathematical, computer and other simulation models are used in such simulations. When conducting computer simulations, among other things, resistance factors determine the time and comfort of riding.

Analysis of the state of modern scientific thought on the use of vehicles in passenger transport
Unrestricted Use

Rating
0.0 stars

Scientific research on the state of modern scientific thought on the use of vehicles in passenger transport reveals the state of establishing relevant approaches to solving a wide range of problems and challenges for scientists around the world. The paper set such a task as a systematic analysis of modern scientific literature published during 2010 - 2022 on the organization of passenger transport by different types and types of passenger transport. Only articles included in the Scopus scientometric database were used in the study. The purpose of this work is to identify modern methodological, theoretical, scientific approaches to addressing the issues inherent in the processes of passenger transportation. The results of the study found that the current state of scientific thought, for the most part, offers a simulation of passenger transport processes. Researchers drew attention to passenger traffic not only by different types and modes of transport, but also by different distances. The approaches of transport modelling proposed by scientists take into account the solution of problems, but do not consider the problems of the transport industry in full. It is also impossible to say with certainty that the methods proposed by scientists are such that take into account the multifactorial nature of external and internal parameters. Thus, not only external factors of the system and possible changes in
the parameters of internal subsystems are not fully taken into account, but also variants of the state and composition of the passenger transportation systems themselves. Among the proposed methods for calculating certain parameters, contemporaries mostly offer computer simulations or mathematical descriptions. The study concludes that the consideration of methods of mathematical and computer modelling as the main at the time of the study.

CC BY-NC-SA
Rating
0.0 stars

The EJS Angular Acceleration of a Contracting System model shows a mass and pulley system to illustrate what happens when a rotating system contracts. When the centripetal force has contracted a rotating system to half its initial radius then: (1) The tangential velocity has doubled, (2) The angular velocity is 4 times faster, (3) The rotational kinetic energy is 4 times higher. (4) The required centripetal force is 8 times stronger. You can examine and modify this simulation if you have EJS installed by right-clicking within the plot and selecting “Open EJS Model” from the pop-up menu item. The Angular Acceleration of a Contracting System model was created using the Easy Java Simulations (EJS) modeling tool. It is distributed as a ready-to-run (compiled) Java archive. Double clicking the ejs_nl_teunissen_angular_acceleration.jar file will run the program if Java is installed. Additional information about this model can be found by visiting the author’s web site: http://www.cleonis.nl/index.htm.

Rating
0.0 stars

This working paper, created by Denny A. Ellerman of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, explores the consequences of cap-and-trade policies, where the total air pollutant emissions of a whole set of polluters are limited, and they are allowed to trade among themselves for the right to pollute up to the cap. The paper focuses on whether these policies have been effective in addressing environmental problems. The article provides background on the policies of U.S. cap-and-trade programs and provides a policy analysis of the effectiveness of these programs.

Arenstorf Orbit JS Model
Only Sharing Permitted
CC BY-NC-ND
Rating
0.0 stars

Arenstorf orbits are closed trajectories of the restricted three-body problem. That is, two bodies of masses µ and 1-µ moving in a circular rotation, and a third body of negligible mass moving in the same plane. The computation of these orbits is very sensible to small errors and are a good test for the accuracy of numerical methods for solving Ordinary Differential Equations. This simulation compares the solution of two of these orbits using both a 4th-order fixed step and a 5(4) variable step Runge-Kutta algorithm. The adaptive solver uses an event to find the period of the orbit and stop there. Both the computations of the adaptive solver and the event are done with the step size and the tolerance indicated. The Arenstorf Orbit JS Model was developed using the Easy Java Simulations (Ejs) version 5. It is distributed as a ready-to-run html page and requires only a browser with JavaScript support.
