I > exp i(K - eA h) r exp(i ) B curl(A) VxA (where A is the vector potential). The superconducting electron pairs are all in a coherent quantum state, and the wavefunction ip exp i(K - eA h) r exp(i ) of each pair is reliable (coherent) over long distances and long times. J. Bardeen, who led a student group (Cooper and Schriefifer) in formulating the BCS theory, the universally accepted basic theory of superconductivity, is quoted as having said that the superconducting phase 0 is coherent...

Referring to Figure 1.2 if there are lOmillion transistors uniformly distributed on a one centimeter square silicon chip, what is the linear size of each unit 2. A contemporary computer chip dissipates 54 Watts on an area of one centimeter square. Assuming that transistor elements in succeeding computer generations require constant power independent of their size (a hypothetical assumption), estimate the power that will be needed for a one centimeter square silicon chip in 5 years. Base your...

Quantum Nature of the Nanoworld

The particles of matter (electrons, protons, neutrons) provide limits to the smallness of anything composed of chemical matter, which is itself composed of atoms. The rules that these particles obey are different from the rules of macroscopic matter. An understanding of the rules is useful to understand the structure of atoms and chemical matter. An understanding of these rules, and of the relation between the wave and particle natures of light, is also key to understanding deviations from...
