One of the great unsolved problems of science and also of physics is the prediction of the three dimensional structure of a protein from its amino acid sequence. It may be stated that the deep connection existing between physics and protein folding is not so much, or in any case not only, through physical methods, but through physical concepts

The lifetime of a positron inside a solid is normally less than a fraction of nanosecond. This is a very short time on a human scale, but is long enough to enable the positron to visit an extended region of the material, and to sense the atomic and electronic structure of the environment. Thus, we can inject a positron in a sample to draw from it some signal giving us information on the microscopic properties of the material. This idea has been successfully developed in a number of positron-based techniques of physical analysis, with resolution in energy, momentum, or position. The complex of

Dark matter in the universe : Varenna on Lake Como, Villa Monastero, 25 July-4 August 1995 by S Bonometto( Book )

6 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Physics and astrophysics came to dark matter through many different routes, finally accepting it, but often with some distaste. It has been noticed that the existence of dark matter is yet another displacement of humans from the centre of the Universe: not only do our planet and our sun have no central position in the Universe, not only are humans just animals (although with a 'specialized' central nervous system), but even the material of which we are made is only a marginal component of the cosmic substance! If this is the right attitude to take, scientists feeling distaste for dark matter a
The physics of diamond : Varenna on Lake Como, Villa Monastero, 23 July-2 August, 1996 by A Paoletti( Book )

8 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Diamond is an extreme material among possible atomic aggregations in nature, and as such has many extreme properties. This unique position makes it a fascinating subject both for science and for applications. This has been particularly true in recent years, since the surprising discovery at Union Carbide (1953) of the possibility of chemical vapour deposition of diamond films at low pressures, where diamond is metastable with respect to graphite. This discovery cleared the way to the development of economical deposition techniques that have been obtaining progressively better-quality diamond
Diagnostic tools in atmospheric physics : Varenna on Lake Como, Villa Monastero, 22 June-2 July 1993 by Giorgio Fiocco( Book )

5 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume addresses a number of experimental techniques and methods for the treatment of data introduced in the last ten years or so in different fields of the atmospheric sciences. Considerable emphasis has been given since their introduction to the use of satellites or spaceborne measurements with a recent example being the important results obtained with UARS. Of particular interest are the airborne instruments developed for the stratospheric measurement campaign organized by the NASA since 1976 to study the ozone hole and followed later by similar experiments to study the high-latitude o

Plasmas in the universe : proceedings of the International School of Physics "Enrico Fermi", course CXLII, Varenna on Lake Como, Villa Monastero, 6-16 July 1999 by B Coppi( Book )

9 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 111 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book illustrates new developments in the fields of space and solar physics, stellar physics, extragalactic physics and cosmology. It also elaborates upon the progress of laboratory plasma physics. One of the topics discussed is the existence of collective processes, both linear and non-linear, that can explain key elements of accretion physics, magnetic reconnection, the formation of 'strange' particle distributions, particle scattering phenomena, etc. Astrophysical plasma are dominated by turbulent or quasi-turbulent processes which interactively associate instabilities, radiation proces
Past and present variability of the solar-terrestrial system : measurement, data analysis, and theoretical models : Varenna on Lake Como, Villa Monastero, 25 June-5 July 1996 by G Cini Castagnoli( Book )

8 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The global climate of the Earth has significantly varied over the last millennia. On a regional scale, the climate has varied and does presently vary on many different time scales, leading to a continuously changing pattern of temperatures, humidity, precipitation, with important effects on the whole terrestrial biosphere. Physicist are interested in understanding the mechanism at work by gathering data and properly analysing them, by building theoretical models and, if possible, making predictions on the future evolution of the system. Along these lines, an important question is to understand
Coherent and collective interactions of particles and radiation beams : Varenna on Lake Como, Villa Monastero, 11-21 July 1995 by Alain Aspect( Book )

7 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is especially concerned with fundamental theoretical and experimental aspects of relativistic beam physics, recoil, and cooling phenomena in atomic and ion beams and traps, with emphasis on coherence and collective effects. The central theme is the physics of atomic laser and free electron laser, and the development of a bridge between them through the mechanism of the so-called recoil induced gain mechanism. The links between relativistic beam physics and atomic laser physics are explored. This book is targeted at an audience of non-specialists or specialists in only one of the fiel
Models and phenomenology for conventional and high-temperature superconductivity : Varenna on Lake Como, Villa Monastero, 24 June-4 July 1997 by G Iadonisi( Book )

3 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The search for microscopic models to explain the many superconducting substances has introduced seminal concepts and techniques in many-body physics and in statistical mechanics. The complexity of the high-temperature superconductors has required a remarkable refinement of experimental techniques in order to allow a reliable characterization of the samples, and is partly the reason why so many different microscopic models have so far been proposed. This Enrico Fermi Course on Superconductivity was provided an up-to date presentation of selected experimental and theoretical theories on the (so
Silicon-based microphotonics : from basics to applications : course CXLI : Varenna on Lake Como, Villa Monastero, 21-31 July 1998 by O Bisi( Book )

5 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The evolution of Si-based optoelectronics has been extremely fast in the last few years and it is predicted that this growth will still continue in the near future. The aim of the volume is to present different Si-based luminescing materials as porous silicon, rare-earth doped silicon, Si nanocrystals, silicides, Si-based multilayers and silicon-germanium alloy or superlattice structures. The different devices needed for an all-Si-based optoelectronics are treated, ranging from light sources to waveguides, from amplifiers and modulators to detectors. Both the very basic treatments as well as a
Unfolding the matter of nuclei : Varenna on Lake Como, Villa Monastero, 22 July-1 August 1997 by A Molinari( Book )

4 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The nucleus and its constituents are a challenging problem. The lectures collected in this book present a broad and comprehensive review of the current knowledge about nuclei. They cover topics such as searching for signatures of the quarks in nuclei with electromagnetic probes and, at much higher energies, for signatures of the quark-gluon plasma in ultrarelativistic nuclear collisions. The attempts to obtain new nuclei in the laboratory are also discussed, as well as the central role played by nuclear physics in the development of weak interactions. Progress in all these areas rests on a deep
Heavy flavour physics : a probe of nature's grand design : Varenna on Lake Como, Villa Monastero, 8-18 July 1997 by I. I Bigi( Book )

5 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 96 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The lectures collected in this book present a comprehensive review of the current knowledge of heavy-quark physics, from the points of view of both theory and experiment. Heavy Flavour Physics has accomplished enormous progress during the last few years: the last heavy quark has been discovered and the quality of the collected data on the other relatively lighter quarks has dramatically improved. On the theory side, noticeable progress has been reported on new calculations of decay rates based on various techniques, such as QCD sum rules, heavy-quark mass expansion and lattice QCD. The theory
