APPPHYS 100B: The Questions of Cloth: Weaving, Pattern Complexity and Structures of Fabric (ARTSINST 100B)

Students will learn to weave on a table loom while examining textile structures from historic, artistic and scientific perspectives. Emphasis on analyzing patterns and structures generated by weaving, with elementary introductions to information-scientific notions of algorithmic complexity, image compression, and source coding. This class is primarily intended for non-STEM majors with little or no prior experience in working with textiles. Limited enrollment. Prerequisites: Instructor permission.

APPPHYS 235: Biotransport Phenomena (BIOPHYS 235, ME 235)

The efficient transport of energy, mass, and momentum is essential to the normal function of living systems. Changes in these processes often result in pathological conditions. Transport phenomena are also critical to the design of instrumentation for medical applications and biotechnology. The course aims to introduce the integrated study of transport processes and their biological applications. It covers the fundamental driving forces for transport in biological systems and the biophysics across multiple length scales (molecules, cells, tissues, organs, whole organisms). Topics include chemical gradients, electrical interactions, fluid flow, mass transport. Pre-requisites: Calculus, MATLAB, basic fluid mechanics, heat transfer, solid mechanics.

APPPHYS 283: Ultrafast Quantum Physics (PHOTON 283)

Intended for first-year graduate students who are interested in understanding the basic concepts of ultrafast quantum science to prepare for research in AMO physics, condensed matter physics, physical chemistry or quantum information science.The topics in this course are distinct from and complementary to AP 201 (Laser and X-ray Sources and Science) and AP 203 (AMO Physics and Quantum Optics). Topics for this course: - Atomic structure probed in the time domain: Wave packets and quantum entanglement.- Molecular structure probed in the time domain: Building up and then breaking down the Born-Oppenheimer picture.- Extended quantum systems probed in the time domain: Band structure, phonons, and ultrafast disturbances- Laser-matter interactions: From multi-photon absorption to tunnel-ionization. - X-ray-matter interactions: Excitation, ionization, and linear and nonlinear scattering.- Attosecond science: Impulsive excitation, Auger-Meitner decay, charge migration within molecules.- Extreme time-domain quantum physics: high-field environments, and matter tunneling from the quantum vacuum.
