Title  Imaging Light with Photoelectrons on the NanoFemto Scale 
Author(s)  Dai, Yanan 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2020. 
Description  XV, 115 p. 77 illus., 68 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This thesis presents significant advances in the imaging and theory of the ultrafast dynamics of surface plasmon polariton fields. The author details construction of a sub10 femtosecond and sub10 nanometer spatiotemporal resolution ultrafast photoemission microscope which is subsequently used for the discovery of topological meron and skyrmionlike plasmonic quasiparticles. In particular, this enabled the creation of movies of the surface plasmon polariton fields evolving on suboptical wavelength scales at around 0.1 femtosecond per image frame undergoing vortex phase evolution. The key insight that the transverse spin of surface plasmon polaritons undergoes a texturing into meron or skyrmionlike topological quasiparticles (defined by the geometric charge of the preparation) follows. In addition, this thesis develops an analytical theory of these new topological quasiparticles, opening new avenues of research, while the ultrafast microscopy techniques established within will also be broadly applicable to studies of nanoscale optical excitations in electronic materials

Title  DNA Systems Under Internal and External Forcing : An Exploration Using CoarseGrained Modelling 
Author(s)  Engel, Megan Clare 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2019. 
Description  XV, 144 p. 70 illus., 67 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  The interactions of DNA with force are central to manifold fields of inquiry, including the de novo design of DNA nanostructures, the use of DNA to probe the principles of biological selfassembly, and the operation of cellular nanomachines. This work presents a survey of three distinct ways coarsegrained simulations can help characterize these interactions. A nonequilibrium energy landscape reconstruction technique is validated for use with the oxDNA model and a practical framework to guide future applications is established. A novel method for calculating entropic forces in DNA molecules is outlined and contrasted with existing, flawed approaches. Finally, a joint experimentalsimulation study of large DNA origami nanostructures under force sheds light on design principles and, through vivid illustrations, their unfolding process. This text provides an accessible and exciting launching point for any student interested in the computational study of DNA mechanics and force interactions

Title  The Swings of Science : From Complexity to Simplicity and Back 
Author(s)  Pismen, Len 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2018. 
Description  VIII, 190 p. 108 illus., 83 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book is a personal account of some aspects of the emergence of modern science, mostly from the viewpoint of those branches of physics which provided the much needed paradigm shift of "more is different" that heralded the advent of complexity science as an antidote to the purely reductionist approach in fundamental physics. It is also about the humans that have helped to shape these developments, including personal reminiscences and the realization that the socalled exact sciences are inevitably also a social endeavour with all its facets. Served by the razorsharp wit of the author, this erudite ramble is meant to be neither comprehensive nor systematic, but its generous insights will give the inquisitive academically trained mind a better understanding of what science, and physics in particular, could or should be about

Title  Advanced Undergraduate Quantum Mechanics : Methods and Applications 
Author(s)  Deych, Lev I 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2018. 
Description  XIX, 610 p. 50 illus., 26 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This introduction to quantum mechanics is intended for undergraduate students of physics, chemistry, and engineering with some previous exposure to quantum ideas. Following in Heisenberg???s and Dirac???s footsteps, this book is centered on the concept of the quantum state as an embodiment of all experimentally available information about a system, and its representation as a vector in an abstract Hilbert space. This conceptual framework and formalism are introduced immediately, and developed throughout the first four chapters, while the standard Schr??dinger equation does not appear until Chapter 5. The book grew out of lecture notes developed by the author over fifteen years of teaching at the undergraduate level. In response to numerous requests by students, material is presented with an unprecedented level of detail in both derivation of technical results and discussion of their physical significance.?? The book is written for students to enjoy reading it, rather than to use only as a source of formulas and examples. The colloquial and personal writing style makes it easier for readers to connect with the material. Additionally, readers will find short, relatable snippets about the ???founding fathers??? of quantum theory, their difficult historical circumstances, personal failings and triumphs, and often tragic fate. This textbook, complete with extensive original endofchapter exercises, is recommended for use in one or twosemester courses for upper level undergraduate and beginning graduate students in physics, chemistry, or engineering

Title  Conical Intersections in Physics : An Introduction to Synthetic Gauge Theories 
Author(s)  Larson, Jonas;Erik Sjoqvist;Patrik Ohberg 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2020. 
Description  XIII, 160 p. 57 illus., 34 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This concise book introduces and discusses the basic theory of conical intersections with applications in atomic, molecular and condensed matter physics. Conical intersections are linked to the energy of quantum systems. They can occur in any physical system characterized by both slow and fast degrees of freedom  such as e.g. the fast electrons and slow nuclei of a vibrating and rotating molecule  and are important when studying the evolution of quantum systems controlled by classical parameters. Furthermore, they play a relevant role for understanding the topological properties of condensed matter systems. Conical intersections are associated with many interesting features, such as a breakdown of the BornOppenheimer approximation and the appearance of nontrivial artificial gauge structures, similar to the AharonovBohm effect. Some applications presented in this book include  Molecular Systems: some molecules in nonlinear nuclear configurations undergo JahnTeller distortions under which the molecule lower their symmetry if the electronic states belong to a degenerate irreducible representation of the molecular point group.  Solid State Physics: different types of Berry phases associated with conical intersections can be used to detect topologically nontrivial states of matter, such as topological insulators, Weyl semimetals, as well as Majorana fermions in superconductors.  Cold Atoms: the motion of cold atoms in slowly varying inhomogeneous laser fields is governed by artificial gauge fields that arise when averaging over the fast internal degrees of freedom of the atoms. These gauge fields can be Abelian or nonAbelian, which opens up the possibility to create analogs to various relativistic effects at low speed

Title  Hydrogen and HydrogenContaining Molecules on Metal Surfaces : Towards the Realization of Sustainable Hydrogen Economy 
Author(s)  Kasai, Hideaki;Padama, Allan Abraham B;Chantaramolee, Bhume;Arevalo, Ryan L 
Publication  Singapore, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Singapore, 2020. 
Description  XVI, 151 p. 98 illus., 53 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book is dedicated to recent advancements in theoretical and computational studies on the interactions of hydrogen and hydrogenated molecules with metal surfaces. These studies are driven by the development of highperformance computers, new experimental findings, and the extensive work of technological applications toward the realization of sustainable hydrogen economy. Understanding of the elementary processes of the physical and chemical reactions on the atomic scale is important in pursuing materials with high chemical reactivity and catalytic activity as well as high stability and durability. From this point of view, the book focuses on the behavior of hydrogen and hydrogenated molecules on flat, stepped, and reconstructed metal surfaces. It also tackles quantum mechanical properties of hydrogen and related adsorbates such as the molecular orbital angular momentum (spin) and diffusion along the minimum potential energy landscape on metal surfaces. All of these have been found to profoundly influence the outcomes of (1) catalytic reactions that involve hydrogen; (2) hydrogen storage in metals; and (3) hydrogen purification membranes. Lastly, it surveys the current status of the technology, outlook, and challenges for the longdesired sustainable hydrogen economy in relation to the topics covered in the book.
