  • Traditionally taught students learn; actively engaged students remember
    • Authors: Scott V. Franklin; Eleanor C. Sayre Jessica W. Clark
      Abstract: A common narrative in physics education research is that students taught in lecture-based classes learn less than those taught with activity-based reformed methods. We show this narrative is simplistic and misses important dynamics of student learning. In particular, we find students of both methods show equal short-term learning gains on a conceptual question dealing with electric potential. For traditionally taught students, this learning rapidly decays on a time scale of weeks, vanishing by the time of the typical end-of-term post-test. For students in reform-based classes, however, the knowledge is retained and may even be enhanced by subsequent instruction. This difference explains the many previous pre- and post-test studies that have found minimal learning gains in lecture-based courses. Our findings suggest a more nuanced model of student learning, one that is sensitive to time-dependent effects such as forgetting and interference. In addition, the findings suggest that lecture-based courses, by incorporating aspects designed to reinforce student understanding of previously covered topics, might approach the long-term learning found in research-based pedagogies.

  • The fields of a charged particle in hyperbolic motion
    • Authors: Joel Franklin; David J. Griffiths
      Abstract: A particle in hyperbolic motion produces electric fields that appear to terminate in mid-air, violating Gauss's law. The resolution to this paradox has been known for sixty years but exactly why the naive approach fails is not so clear.

  • Why do Earth satellites stay up'
    • Authors: Scott Tremaine; Tomer D. Yavetz
      Abstract: Satellites in low Earth orbits must accurately conserve their orbital eccentricity, since a decrease in perigee of only 5–10% would cause them to crash. However, these satellites are subject to gravitational perturbations from Earth's multipole moments, the Moon, and the Sun that are not spherically symmetric and hence do not conserve angular momentum, especially over the tens of thousands of orbits made by a typical satellite. Why then do satellites not crash' We describe a vector-based analysis of the long-term behavior of satellite orbits and apply this to several toy systems containing a single non-Keplerian perturbing potential. If only the quadrupole (or J 2) potential from the Earth's equatorial bulge is present, all near-circular orbits are stable. If only the octupole (or J 3) potential is present, all such orbits crash. If only the lunar or solar potential is present, all near-circular orbits with inclinations to the ecliptic exceeding 39 ° are unstable. We describe the behavior of satellites in the simultaneous presence of all of these perturbations and show that almost all low Earth orbits are stable because of an accidental property of the dominant quadrupole potential. We also relate these results to the phenomenon of Lidov–Kozai oscillations.

  • Melba Newell Phillips Medal Lecture 2013: Discipline-Based Education
           Research—A View From Physics
    • Authors: Lillian Christie McDermott
      Abstract: Preface: In thanking AAPT for the Melba Newell Phillips Medal, I want to emphasize that the accomplishments that have been recognized by this award have resulted from many contributions over many years by past and present members of the UW Physics Education Group. Support by the National Science Foundation has been critical. On a more personal level, I am also very much honored to have my name associated with Melba Newell Phillips through this award. I remember her warm welcome at my first AAPT meeting many years ago. Although we had not met before, she did not seem too busy to express interest in my work and to offer encouragement. I was impressed then (and still am) by her accomplishments in research and teaching, her political courage, and her service to the physics academic community. Abstract: This article presents an overview of research in physics education (PER) as it has been conducted by the Physics Education Group at the University of Washington. Examples from introductory physics illustrate the nature of our investigations and the application of our findings in the development of research-based and research-validated curriculum for university students and K–12 teachers. The results from our research provide strong evidence of the ongoing need for research on the learning and teaching of physics that is strongly discipline-based.

  • An introduction to QBism with an application to the locality of quantum
    • Authors: Christopher A. Fuchs; N. David Mermin Rüdiger Schack
      Abstract: We give an introduction to the QBist interpretation of quantum mechanics, which removes the paradoxes, conundra, and pseudo-problems that have plagued quantum foundations for the past nine decades. As an example, we show in detail how this interpretation eliminates “quantum nonlocality.”

  • Design and construction of cost-effective tapered amplifier systems for
           laser cooling and trapping experiments
    • Authors: Jayampathi C. B. Kangara; Andrew J. Hachtel, Matthew C. Gillette, Jason T. Barkeloo, Ethan R. Clements, Samir Bali, Brett E. Unks, Nicholas A. Proite, Deniz D. Yavuz, Paul J. Martin, Jeremy J. Thorn Daniel A. Steck
      Abstract: We present plans for the construction and operation of a tapered optical amplifier (TA) system seeded by a single-mode, frequency-tunable, near-IR external-cavity diode laser. Our plans include machine drawings for the parts, electronic circuit diagrams, and information on prices and vendors. Instructions are provided on how to safely couple light into and out of the TA chip. Practical aspects of handling the chip are discussed as well. Because many cold atom experiments require light beams with Gaussian spatial profiles, measurements of the tapered amplifier light output through a single-mode optical fiber are presented as a function of seed intensity, polarization, and driving current.

  • Measuring Gaussian noise using a lock-in amplifier
    • Authors: T. Kouh; U. Kemiktarak, O. Basarir, C. Lissandrello K. L. Ekinci
      Abstract: Gaussian fluctuations (or Gaussian noise) appear in almost all measurements in physics. Here, a concise and self-contained introduction to thermal Gaussian noise is presented. Our analysis in the frequency domain centers on thermal fluctuations of the position of a particle bound in a one-dimensional harmonic potential, which in this case is a microcantilever immersed in a bath of room-temperature gas. Position fluctuations of the microcantilever, detected by the optical beam deflection technique, are then fed into a lock-in amplifier to measure the probability distribution and spectral properties of the fluctuations. The lock-in amplifier measurement is designed to emphasize the frequency-domain properties of Gaussian noise. The discussion here can be complementary to a discussion of Gaussian fluctuations in the time domain.

  • Response of a lock-in amplifier to noise
    • Authors: D. A. Van Baak; George Herold
      Abstract: The “lock-in” detection technique can extract, from a possibly noisy waveform, the amplitude of a signal that is synchronous with a known reference signal. This paper examines the effects of input noise on the output of a lock-in amplifier. We present quantitative predictions for the root-mean-square size of the resulting fluctuations and for the spectral density of the noise at the output of a lock-in amplifier. Our results show how a lock-in amplifier can be used to measure the spectral density of noise in the case of a noise-only input signal. Some implications of the theory, familiar and surprising, are tested against experimental data.

  • Generalized coherent states
    • Authors: T. G. Philbin
      Abstract: In the coherent state of the harmonic oscillator, the probability density is that of the ground state subjected to an oscillation along a classical trajectory. Senitzky and others pointed out that there are states of the harmonic oscillator corresponding to an identical oscillatory displacement of the probability density of any energy eigenstate. These generalizations of the coherent state are rarely discussed, yet they furnish an interesting set of quantum states of light that combine features of number states and coherent states. Here, we give an elementary account of the quantum optics of generalized coherent states.

  • Trajectory of a projectile on a frictional inclined plane
    • Authors: Xiaosun Wang
      Abstract: A closed form solution is given for the trajectory of a particle sliding on an inclined plane with Coulomb-type friction. If the inclination of the plane is less than the friction angle, the particle eventually comes to rest and expressions for the location of this point and the duration of the motion are given. If the initial launch is inclined at a small angle with respect to the upward line of greatest slope, the direction of the velocity changes rapidly during the last instants of motion.
