Inelastic scattering of neutrons by anharmonic crystals ( Book )
2 editions published between 1963 and 1964 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A theoretical framework is provided within which to determine the phonon frequencies and lifetimes from inelastic scattering of neutrons by crystals. When a crystal has anharmonicities interference effects can occur between in which the neutron creates only one phonon and processes in which it creates several phonons; these coherences are due to the fact that when a phonon can decay into several phonons, the final state in which the neutron has created one phonon is not orthogonal to final states in which the neutron has created several phonons. The one-phonon cross-section has a resonance at the phonon frequency, with a width proportional to the inverse of the phonon lifetime. The interference terms have the effect of shifting the center of this resonance, as observed, from the one-phonon frequency, and also changing the shape from an expected Lorentzian form. A very crude estimate of the effect is made which indicates that under favorable conditions in lead interference effects may lead to an asymmetry in the line shape of the order of a few per cent. It would appear that the anharmonicities in a crystal place an upper limit on the accuracy with which one can directly determine the phonon frequencies and lifetimes from the one-phonon resonances in neutron scattering data.

Radiation of strongly interacting particles by thermal sources: Violation of the Stefan-Boltzmann law by Keiko I Kircher ( )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
This thesis discusses a gas around a thermal source that emits particles with a temperature that is high enough for the emitted particles to self-interact. Particles emitted from a hot thermal source by means of Hawking radiation could self- interact. With such strong interactions, the Stefan-Boltzmann law would not accurately describe the properties of the radiation. This thesis discusses two different regions of a strongly interacting gas around a thermal source: the region where the gas can be accurately described by a perfect fluid in a strong gravitational field, and where the gas freezes out due to an increasing mean free path. Here we show that properties of radiation would change due to self-interaction of such gas, and as the interaction weakens due to increasing mean free path of the particles, parameters of the gas change rapidly, which indicates that the gas freezes out. The temperature of self- interacting radiation becomes lower in both perfect fluid region and freezeout region. The temperature measured at infinity is lower than the temperature of non-interacting radiation approximately by a factor of two. The result shows that a thermal source surrounded by a strongly interacting gas would seem colder than when self-interaction of the particles is not taken into account, and that such strongly-interacting radiation would go through a rapid change in its parameters such as temperature and fluid velocity
