NUS centennial Nobel Laureate public lecture. 4, How advances in science are made ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 5 libraries worldwide
Professor Douglas D. Osheroff, Nobel Laureate in Physics from the Stanford University, California, USA, reviewed several important discoveries, and the chains of events that had allowed advances to have important impact far beyond the fields in which the original advances had occurred. These examples illustrated that advances which most change the way we think about Nature often cannot be anticipated.
The Nobel visions of our century ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 4 libraries worldwide
Opens with a look at the life and legacy of Alfred Nobel and then presents in-depth profiles of twelve of the Nobel Laureates who have shaped our world in the defining moments of the 20th century. This program not only illustrates the impact of these Laureates but also shows them in their everyday settings conveying their motivations, interests and reflections on their role in history.

Strong supercooling and stimulation of the AB transition in superfluid ©He by Douglas D Osheroff ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
In the first order A to B phase transition in superfluid helium three, the surface energy is so large and the difference in bulk free energies, which drives the transition, is so small that the calculated lifetime for homogeneous nucleation at arbitrarily low temperatures exceeds the age of the universe; yet the transition is always found to occur. Since surfaces favor the high temperature phase, the mechanism for this transition has long been a mystery. Doug Osheroff, Stanford University, presents results from recent experiments that show that surface roughness can greatly influence the lifetime of the supercooled state, and that ionizing radiation can cause nucleation in substantial agreement with a 1984 theory by A.J. Leggett called the "baked Alaska" model.
The Discovery of superfluid 3̲He through the eyes of a graduate student by Douglas D Osheroff ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
Professor Douglas Osheroff, 1996 Nobel Laureate in Physics of Stanford University, describes the seven month period when, as a graduate student, he participated in the discovery of three superfluid phases of liquid 3̲He. These states are complex generalizations of the order present in superconductors.
Douglas Osheroff how advances in physics are made by Douglas D Osheroff ( Visual )
2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Dr. Osheroff gives a brief history of some of the major discoveries in the area of physics over the last century or so, especially those which have led to Nobel Prizes in physics or other related disciplines, and uses this to give advice to researchers. He also details his own discovery which led to his receiving the Nobel Prize for Physics.
Influence of magnetic field on dielectric susceptibility of amorphous solids at ultra low temperature by Lidiya Vladimirovna Polukhina ( Book )
1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
The dielectric response of some amorphous solids below 100 mK is known to be sensitive to an applied magnetic field. This work presents new experimental data on the behavior of BK7, Aluminum-Barium-Silicate, Suprasil, Corning® microscope cover glass and Mylar® film (amorphous Polyethylene Terephthalate) samples in the temperature range from 2 mK to 100 mK in presence of a slowly varying magnetic field. We studied the dielectric constant by means of continuous wave AC capacitance measurements at 1 kHz. We observed hysteresis in the dielectric response to a magnetic field varying in a saw-like pattern with field strengths up to 2 milliTesla. The pattern of the response differs depending on the glass composition. The results presented in this work are consistent with previously made observations that nuclear spins greater than 1/2 play a crucial role in the observed magnetic field dependence.
