Diffusive and quantum effects of water properties in different states of matter
Abstract
The enthalpy, entropy, and free energy of water are important physical quantities for understanding many interesting phenomena in biological systems. However, conventional approaches require different treatments to incorporate quantum and diffusive effects of water in different states of matter. In this work, we demonstrate the use of the twophase thermodynamic (2PT) model as a unified approach to obtain the properties of water over the whole phase region of water from short (∼20 ps) classical molecular dynamics trajectories. The 2PT model provides an effective way to separate the diffusive modes (gaslike component) from the harmonic vibrational modes (solidlike component) in the vibrational density of states (DoS). Therefore, both diffusive and quantum effect can be properly accounted for water by applying suitable statistical mechanical weighting functions to the DoS components. We applied the 2PT model to systematically examine the enthalpy, entropy, and their temperature dependence of five commonly used rigid water models. The 2PT results are found to be consistent with those obtained from more sophisticated calculations. While the thermodynamic properties determined from different water models are largely similar, the phase boundary determined from the equality of free energy is very sensitive to the small inaccuracy in the values of enthalpy and absolutemore »

The zerotemperature properties of matter with an interaction pair potential of the LennardJones form are studied in the context of the quantum theorem of corresponding states. In particular, the phase transition between the fluid and crystalline phases is studied for systems obeying either FermiDirac or BoseEinstein statistics. It is found that the solidification pressure of a Fermi system is much lower than that of a Bose system with the same mass and pair potential. We find that it is illuminating to extend the usual thermodynamic vaiable space to include the correspondingstates quantum parameter eta identical with h/sup 2//m epsilon sigma/supmore »

Diffusive properties of water in Artemia cysts as determined from quasielastic neutron scattering spectra. [Artemia shrimp]
Results have been obtained on the quasielastic spectra of neutrons scattered from pure water, 20% agarose gel (hydration four grams H/sub 2/O per gram of dry solid) and cysts of the brine shrimp Artemia for hydrations between 0.10 and 1.2 grams H/sub 2/O per gram of dry solids. The spectra were interpreted using a twocomponent model that included contributions from the covalently bonded protons and the hydration water, and a mobile water fraction. The mobile fraction was described by a jumpdiffusion correlation function for the translation motion and a simple diffusive orientational correlation function. The results for the line widthsmore » 
Quantum metrology with rotating matter waves in different geometries
A promising practical application of entanglement is metrology, where quantum states can be used to make measurements beyond the shot noise limit. Here we consider how metrology schemes could be realised using atomic BoseEinstein condensates (BECs) trapped in different potentials. In particular, we show that if a trapped BEC is rotated at just the right frequency, it can undergo a quantum phase transition characterised by largescale entanglement spreading across the system. This simple process of stirring can generate interesting quantum states such as macroscopic superpositions of all the atoms flowing in opposite directions around a ringshaped potential. We consider differentmore » 
Comparative toxicity of sizefractionated airborne particulate matter obtained from different cities in the United States
Hundreds of epidemiological studies have shown that exposure to ambient particulate matter (PM) is associated with dosedependent increases in morbidity and mortality. While early reports focused on PM less than 10 {mu}m (PM10), numerous studies have since shown that the effects can occur with PM stratified into ultrafine (UF), fine (FI), and coarse (CO) size modes despite the fact that these materials differ significantly in both evolution and chemistry. Furthermore the chemical makeup of these different size fractions can vary tremendously depending on location, meteorology, and source profile. For this reason, highvolume threestage particle impactors with the capacity to collectmore » 
Electrical and optical properties of nearsurface AlGaAs/InGaAs/AlGaAs quantum wells with different quantumwell depths
A series of AlGaAs/InGaAs/AlGaAs quantumwell heterostructures with different quantumwell depths and approximately the same concentrations of twodimensional electrons is grown by molecularbeam epitaxy. The builtin electric field in the grown samples is determined from the photoreflectance data and, on this basis, the energyband structure in the quantumwell region is calculated. It is found that the highest mobility {mu}{sub e} of twodimensional electrons is attained in the sample with a barrierlayer thickness of L{sub b} = 11 nm. Measurements of the photoluminescence spectra and the bandstructure calculations demonstrate that, as the quantum well becomes closer to the surface, the doping profilemore »
