Quantum mechanics : an experimentalist's approach by Eugene D Commins( Book )
8 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 131 libraries worldwide
Eugene D. Commins takes an experimentalist's approach to quantum mechanics, preferring to use concrete physical explanations over formal, abstract descriptions to address the needs and interests of a diverse group of students. Keeping physics at the foreground and explaining difficult concepts in straightforward language, Commins examines the many modern developments in quantum physics, including Bell's inequalities, locality, photon polarization correlations, the stability of matter, Casimir forces, geometric phases, Aharonov-Bohm and Aharonov-Casher effects, magnetic monopoles, neutrino oscillations, neutron interferometry, the Higgs mechanism, and the electroweak standard model. The text is self-contained, covering the necessary background on atomic and molecular structure in addition to the traditional topics. Developed from the author's well-regarded course notes for his popular first-year graduate course at UC Berkeley, instruction is supported by over 160 challenging problems to illustrate concepts and provide students with ample opportunity to test their knowledge and understanding

Electric dipole moments and CP violation by Eugene D Commins( visu )
1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
Prof. Eugene Commins, Dept. of Physics, University of California. Searches for intrinsic electric dipole moments of elementary particles, nuclei, atoms, and molecules have a long history. Such moments cannot exist without violation of parity (P) and time reversal invariance (T), and they are of interest in connection with the problem of CP violation. Prof. Commins discusses the various experimental methods used to search for dipole moments of the neutron, proton, various nuclei, muon, and tau lepton, and presents new results in our search for the electric dipole moment of the electron
Search for the electric dipole moment of the electron by Eugene D Commins( visu )
1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
An electron can possess an electric dipole moment(EDM) only by virtue of an interaction that violates P- and T- variance. The talk describes a new and sensitive experimental search for the electron EDM
New results in the search for the electron electric dipole moment by Eugene D Commins( visu )
1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
Professor Eugene Commins, Physics Department, UC Berkeley. New results in the search for the electron electric dipole moment. If an elementary particle were to possess an electric dipole moment (EDM), this would imply violation of parity (P) and time reversal (T) invariance. The question is of interest in connection with CP violation, a phenomenon that has been observed for 30 years, but is still not understood. Some plausible theoretical models of CP violation predict that the electron should have an EDM large enough to be observed in practical experiments. I will describe our experiment, give our latest results, and discuss briefly our current efforts to improve the experimental sensitivity

85 years of electron spin by Eugene D Commins( visu )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Dr. Eugene Commins discusses that our talk, mainly historical, will be concerned with the discovery of electron spin, the anomalous magnetic moment of the electron (and the muon) in theory and experiment, and, if time permits, the search for the electron electric dipole moment

Theory and proposal for a quantum-degenerate electron source ( file )
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
We propose a pulsed electron source capable of a 6Dbrightness orders-of-magnitude greater than that of existing sources. Itcould deliver average current up to 0.5 pA and achieve an emittanceapproaching the quantum limit of one Compton wavelength in each spatialdimension. It could be employed to advantage in electron microscopy, inverse photo-emission, precision low-energy scattering experiments, andelectron holography. This source could make possible pump-probeexperiments with Angstrom spatial and sub-picosecond time resolution. Here we describe basic concepts of the source, including analysis of mainissues that must be addressed for its successful construction andoperation. We have begun an experiment to demonstrate its essentialfeatures
Proposal for a High-Brightness Pulsed Electron Source ( file )
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
We propose a novel scheme for a high-brightness pulsedelectron source, which has the potential for many useful applications inelectron microscopy, inverse photo-emission, low energy electronscattering experiments, and electron holography. A description of theproposed scheme is presented
An Ultra-Bright Pulsed Electron Beam with Low LongitudinalEmittance ( file )
1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
Most existing electron sources extract electrons from conductors. Since the actual temperature inside the conductor is much less than the Fermi temperature of the conduction electrons, the electron degeneracy ({delta}{sub f}) is close to 1, the maximum allowed by the Pauli exclusion principle. However, during extraction several factors conspire together to reduce {delta}{sub f} many orders of magnitude, limiting the achieved values to approx 10{sup -5}. A new concept is described for building a novel electron source designed to produce a pulsed beam with {delta}{sub f} approx 2 10{sup -3} and longitudinal emittance four orders of magnitude smaller than currently achieved values. This high brightness, low longitudinal emittance regime enables a wide range of novel applications that utilize angstrom-scale spatial resolution and eV-scale energy resolution. The current state of a proof-of-principle experiment conducted at LBNL is also described
