I'm trying to understand the so-called polaron transformation as frequently encountered in quantum optics. Take the following paper as example: "Quantum dot cavity-QED in the presence of strong electron-phonon interactions" by I. Wilson-Rae and A. Imamoğlu. We have the spin-phonon model with...
From my reading of several quantum optics textbooks and spectroscopy texbooks, the emission and absorption spectrum of an atom or molecule are always given in terms of the time-correlation function, for example the emission spectrum of a two level atom is given by:
$$...
The emission spectrum or resonance fluorescence for a quantum dot, atom or defect center are discussed in many quantum optics textbook, for example see "Quantum Optics" by Marlan O. Scully and M. Suhail Zubairy Chapter 10 , "Quantum Optics" by D. F. Walls and Gerard J. Milburn Chapter 10 and...
Thank you! You really made my day! I'm using the Griffiths Textbook but never thought of using vector addition on "curly-r / script-r" $$\text{script r} = \vec{r}-\vec{r'}$$
where $$\text{script r}:=\text{the vector starts at source charges (the sphere) and ends at point z}$$...
Thank you for your help but I'm actually looking for an alternative solution.
For example:
When finding electric field distance z perpendicular above the mid point of a line segment, we usually parameterize:
$$\vec{r}=<-x,0,z>$$
in order to get from any point on the line segment to the point...
Homework statement:
Find the electric field a distance z from the center of a spherical shell of radius R that carries a uniform charge density σ.
Relevant Equations: Gauss' Law
$$\vec{E}=k\int\frac{\sigma}{r^2}\hat{r}da$$
My Attempt:
By using the spherical symmetry, it is fairly obvious...
For the following distributions find $$E[2^X]$$ and $$E[2^{-X}]$$ if finite. In each case,clearly state for what values of the parameter the expectation is finite.
(a) $$X\sim Geom(p)$$
(b) $$X\sim Pois(\lambda)$$
My attempt:
Using LOTUS and $$E[X]=\sum_{k=0}^{\infty}kP(X=k)=\frac{1-p}{p}$$...
I know the current of capacitor and inductor must be parallel but pointing in opposite direction due to the fact they are connected in parallel thus having same voltage (please see attached screenshots). The current of resistor will simply be the sum of these two vectors, but what about its...
For a single electron system, it's binding energy would just be -RZ2/n2 (where R = 13.606(eV) ). But when we're talking about multielectron system, it's binding energy would become -RZeff2/n2 (since there will be shielding effect due to the inner elecrons, where we need to figure out the Zeff...
1) I know that the binding energy is the energy that holds a nucleus together ( which equals to the mass defect E = mc2 ). But what does it mean when we are talking about binding energy of an electron ( eg. binding energy = -Z2R/n2 ? ). Some website saying that " binding energy = - ionization...
Thank you for the quick reply,
the total volume of the sphere is 4188790 Mpc3
("which indicates the volume of sky I could possibly observed is 4/3⋅π⋅d3 = 4188790 Mpc3")
and the volume I need to view is 10000Mpc3
("thus V=10000Mpc3, which is the volume I need to observed to find 100...
Homework Statement
Given that there are 10-2 Ellipticals per Mpc3 and my garden telescope can reach to 14 mag. How large an area of sky would I need to survey to find 100 Elliptical galaxies ? (assume the typical absolute magnitude for an Elliptical galaxy is -21 mag).
Homework Equations...
yess I'm really sorry I've forgot to put another M in the second equation!
correction:
to find mass occupied by the starts in the range x and y: fM = ∫xy M-7/3 M dM / ∫0.120 M-7/3 M dM
Homework Statement
Assuming a Salpeter IMF with upper and lower mass limits of 0.1 and 20 M⊙ respectively, calculate:
(i) the mass point at which half the mass formed in a stellar cluster lies in more massive systems and half in less massive systems.
ii) the mass point at which half the...
I did write :
To find the angular momentum of the whole rigid body, summing all the tiny pieces, we have :
∑ L = ∑ ri mi ri ωi
Since ω is constant everywhere, we then have :
∑ L = ω ∑ mi ri2
** Note that the ω here does not have a subscript. **
Let's consider the following scenario :
If the...
I'm trying to deduce the angular momentum ( for a rigid body ) on my own, and here is the problem I face.
By introducing the angular momentum of a tiny piece in rigid body (" i ") as :
Li = ri × pi
Li = ri × mi vi --------------------------------- [ Line 1 ]
Li = ri × mi ri ωi
To find the...
Thanks for the reply, so the dθ is not in the same direction with the unit vector θ hat ? ( which we introduced in the polar coordinates, θ hat is tangent to the circular motion ) . Instead, dθ is perpendicular to the plane of circular motion ( same direction as angular velocity ) ?
I' m trying to derive the work done by a torque from W = ∫ F ⋅ ds and I' ve looked up the internet, it said:
W = ∫ F ⋅ ds ( since ds = dθ × r ) ---------------------------------------- ( Line 1 )
it can be written as
W = ∫ F ⋅ dθ x r
this is a vector triple product , thus can also...
