On March 25, 2003 Professor Vernon Hughes of Yale collage gave up the ghost in New Haven, Connecticut. His profession in physics prolonged over greater than 50 years, and his hugely influential learn paintings contributed invaluably to various primary questions in physics. This e-book contains a compilation of articles overlaying talks given on the Vernon Willard Hughes Memorial Symposium, which came about at Yale collage in November 2003. The interesting contributions from many best experimental and theoretical physicists disguise subject matters in atomic, nuclear and particle physics, in addition to contain feedback made via Professor Alan Bromley on the symposium dinner. The e-book additionally positive aspects the Biographical Memoirs of Professor Hughes, written through Professor Robert Adair for the U.S. nationwide Academy of Sciences, and a whole record of Professor Hughes's guides.

Timekeeping is an important job within the smooth global, and we take it with no consideration that our lives our formed through the hours of the day. but what turns out so usual this day is admittedly the extreme final result of centuries of technical innovation and flow of rules approximately time. Shaping the Day is a pathbreaking learn of the perform of timekeeping in England and Wales among 1300 and 1800.
This publication covers cutting-edge innovations regularly occurring in smooth fabrics characterization. very important elements of characterization, fabrics buildings and chemical research, are incorporated. commonplace recommendations, resembling metallography (light microscopy), X-ray diffraction, transmission and scanning electron microscopy, are defined.
Ever a resource of philosophical conjecture and debate, the idea that of time represents the thrashing center of physics. This ultimate paintings by means of the celebrated physicist Hans Reichenbach represents the end result and integration of a lifetime's philosophical contributions and inquiries into the research of time.
It is a transparent and up to date account of the applying of electron-based microscopies to the research of high-Tc superconductors. Written by way of major specialists, this compilation presents a entire overview of scanning electron microscopy, transmission electron microscopy and scanning transmission electron microscopy, including information of every strategy and its functions.

10 MHz. 328s) 2 ). 34 - The experiment was designed t o induce microwave transitions between two hfs magnetic substates of muonium designated by their strong-field quantum numbers ( m ~ , m , )= (f,f) (f,-f). The transition is observed under approximate strong field conditions for which the transition frequency is roughly Au/2. The Breit-Rabi formula allows an exact calculation of Au from the observed resonance condition of the microwaves and the static magnetic field. The microwave source was a Varian 802B 1 kW klystron driving a thin aluminium cavity operating in the TMllo mode.
7. The Final Microwave Experiments at Nevis In the period from 1962 to 1964 the high field microwave measurements were substantially improved. The group grew in size when Yale Post-Doc M. Eckhause, Yale student R. M. Mobley, and Columbia student J. E. Rothberg joined the group. The measurement precision was greatly increased by (1) obtaining much narrower resonance lines through use of a more homogeneous magnetic field and low microwave power, (2) improving counting 35 hilarowore Power Figure 8.

Phys. B. 150, 1 (1979). edu During the period from 1957 to 1964 a series of experiments led by Vernon Hughes was conducted at the Columbia University Nevis Cyclotron. The formation of the p+e- atom, muonium, in purified argon was established through the observation of the Larmor precession frequency characteristic of muonium.
