Most widely held works by Douglas D Osheroff
NUS centennial Nobel Laureate public lecture( Visual )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member 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

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Organised by the International Relations Office (IRO), the NUS Centennial Nobel Laureate Public Lecture Series was one of the highlights of NUS Centennial Celebrations. Since the Series was launched in July 2005 till it ended in May 2006, six Nobel Laureates have presented on a wide spectrum of topics that span across Physics, Medicine and Chemistry"--Booklet

The Nobel visions of our century( Visual )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member 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

Douglas Osheroff, 1996 Nobel Prize winner in physics, discusses his work with super-fluidity in helium, how he learned he was a prize winner and how winning the Nobel Prize has changed his life
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 WorldCat member 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 WorldCat member 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

The validity of classical nucleation theory and its application to dislocation nucleation by Seunghwa Ryu( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Nucleation has been the subject of intense research because it plays an important role in the dynamics of most first-order phase transitions. The standard theory to describe the nucleation phenomena is the classical nucleation theory (CNT) because it correctly captures the qualitative features of the nucleation process. However potential problems with CNT have been suggested by previous studies. We systematically test the individual components of CNT by computer simulations of the Ising model and find that it accurately predicts the nucleation rate if the correct droplet free energy computed by umbrella sampling is provided as input. This validates the fundamental assumption of CNT that the system can be coarse grained into a one dimensional Markov chain with the largest droplet size as the reaction coordinate. Employing similar simulation techniques, we study the dislocation nucleation which is essential to our understanding of plastic deformation, ductility, and mechanical strength of crystalline materials. We show that dislocation nucleation rates can be accurately predicted over a wide range of conditions using CNT with the activation free energy determined by umbrella sampling. Our data reveal very large activation entropies, which contribute a multiplicative factor of many orders of magnitude to the nucleation rate. The activation entropy at constant strain is caused by thermal expansion, with negligible contribution from the vibrational entropy. The activation entropy at constant stress is significantly larger than that at constant strain, as a result of thermal softening. The large activation entropies are caused by anharmonic effects, showing the limitations of the harmonic approximation widely used for rate estimation in solids. Similar behaviors are expected to occur in other nucleation processes in solids

Testing and characterization of superCDMS dark matter detectors by Benjamin Shank( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The Cryogenic Dark Matter Search (SuperCDMS) relies on collection of phonons and charge carriers in semiconductors held at tens of milliKelvin as handles for detection of Weakly Interacting Massive Particles (WIMPs). This thesis begins with a brief overview of the direct dark matter search (Chapter 1) and SuperCDMS detectors (Chapter 2). In Chapter 3, a 3He evaporative refrigerator facility is described. Results from experiments performed in-house at Stanford to measure carrier transport in high-purity germanium (HPGe) crystals operated at sub-Kelvin temperatures are presented in Chapter 4. Finally, in Chapter 5 a new numerical model and a time-domain optimal filtering technique are presented, both developed for use with superconducting Transition Edge Sensors (TESs), that provide excellent event reconstruction for single particle interactions in detectors read out with superconducting W-TESs coupled to energy-collecting films of Al
