Title: From local to global measurements of nonclassical nonlinear elastic effects in geomaterials

Abstract

Here, the equivalence between local and global measures of nonclassical nonlinear elasticity is established in a slender resonant bar. Nonlinear effects are first measured globally using nonlinear resonance ultrasound spectroscopy (NRUS), which monitors the relative shift of the resonance frequency as a function of the maximum dynamic strain in the sample. Subsequently, nonlinear effects are measured locally at various positions along the sample using dynamic acousto elasticity testing (DAET). Finally, after correcting analytically the DAET data for three-dimensional strain effects and integrating numerically these corrected data along the length of the sample, the NRUS global measures are retrieved almost exactly.

  • In this Letter, the tensorial nature of the nonequilibrium dynamics in nonlinear mesoscopic elastic materials is evidenced via multimode resonance experiments. In these experiments the dynamic response, including the spatial variations of velocities and strains, is carefully monitored while the sample is vibrated in a purely longitudinal or a purely torsional mode. By analogy with the fact that such experiments can decouple the elements of the linear elastic tensor, we demonstrate that the parameters quantifying the nonequilibrium dynamics of the material differ substantially for a compressional wave and for a shear wave. As a result, this could lead to furthermore » understanding of the nonlinear mechanical phenomena that arise in natural systems as well as to the design and engineering of nonlinear acoustic metamaterials.« less

  • An intensity dependent nonlinear coupling model of N two-level atoms (generalized Dicke model) interacting dispersively with a bimodal cavity field via two-photon transitions is investigated in a scenario where the rotating wave approximation is assumed. The model becomes homogeneous in the sense that the spin transition frequency is the same for all atoms and the coupling constants emerging from the collective interactions of the atomic system with the cavity field depend only on the particular radiation field mode. This allows us to represent the Dicke Hamiltonian entirely in terms of the total angular momentum J. It is assumed that, initially,more » the atomic system and the field are in a disentangled state where the field modes are in Glauber coherent states and the atomic system is a superposition of states |JM> (Dicke states). The model is numerically tested against simulations of normal squeezing variance of the field, squeezing factors based on the Heisenberg uncertainty principle, along with the statistical properties of the light leading to the possible production of nonclassical effects, such as degree of second-order coherence in the modes, degree of intermode correlation, as well as violation of the Cauchy-Schwartz inequality. Analytical expression of the total density operator matrix elements at t>0 shows the present nonlinear model to be strongly entangled, which is reflected in the time evolution of the linear entropy, where the superposition states are reduced to statistical mixtures. Thus, the present generalized Dicke model does not preserve the modulus of the Bloch vector. The computations, performed in the weak coupling and strong field limits, were conducted via second-order Dyson perturbative expansion of the time evolution operator matrix elements for the totality of the angular momentum states of the atomic system. - Highlights: > The present highly nonlinear generalized Dicke model involves two-photon transitions. > Quantum coherences significantly affect the dynamics of the atomic system. > At t>0 the time-dependent density operator matrix becomes strongly entangled. > Linear entropy shows that the superposition states turn into statistical mixtures. > The present Dicke model does not preserve the modulus of the Bloch vector.« less
  • A new procedure to extract global characteristics of a current sheet based on local measurements of magnetic field, plasma, and current density profiles, this method permits an estimate of the following parameters: (1) the asymptotic magnetic field strength outside the current sheet, (2) the north-south thickness of the current sheet, (3) the spacecraft distance from the center of the current sheet, (4) the magnetic field line curvature at the center of the current sheet, (5) the volume current density at the center of the current sheet, (6) the integrated current density across the thickness of the current sheet, and (7)more » the k parameter used by many researchers in the study of particle orbits in a current sheet geometry. 11 refs., 1 fig., 1 tab.« less
  • Metals with high resistivity (approx.100 ..mu cap omega.. cm) seem to show weaker variation of resistivity (as a function of temperature and perhaps also static disorder) than predicted by semiclassical (Bloch-Boltzmann) theory (SBT). We argue that the effect is not closely related to Anderson localization, and therefore does not necessarily signify a failure of the independent collision approximation. Instead we propose a failure of the semiclassical acceleration and conduction approximations. A generalization of Boltzmann theory is made which includes quantum (interband) acceleration and conduction, as well as a complete treatment of interband-collision effects (within the independent-collision approximation). The interband termsmore » enhance short-time response to E fields (because the theory satisfies the exact f-sum rule instead of the semiclassical approximation to it). This suggests that the additional conductivity, as expressed phenomenologically by the shunt resistor model, is explained by interband effects. The scattering operator is complex, its imaginary parts being related to energy-band renormalization caused by the disorder. Charge conservation is respected and thermal equilibrium is restored by the collision operator. The theory is formally solved for the leading corrections to SBT, which have the form of a shunt resistor model. At infrared frequencies, the conductivity mostly obeys the Drude law sigma(..omega..)approx.sigma(0)(1-i..omega..tau)/sup -1/, except for one term which goes as (1-i..omega..tau)/sup -2/.« less
