THEORY 1 Spectroscopy of Particle Velocities
Basic Data The absorption and emission of a photon is a reversible process. A good example is to be found in the excitation of an atom from the ground state to a higher energy state and the atoms? subsequent return to the ground state. In such a case we may detect the absorption of a photon from the phenomenon of spontaneous emission or fluorescence. Some of the more modern instrumentation makes uses of this principle to identify atoms, and also to measure or calculate the value of the velocity in the velocity spectrum of the electron beam. In an idealised experiment (see fig. 19.1) a single-charged ion travels in the opposite direction to light from a laser source with velocity v. The wavelength of light from the laser source is adjustable. An ion with velocity Zero can be excited to a higher energy state by the application of laser light having a wavelength of λ = 600 nm. If we excite a moving ion, our knowledge on Dopplers?effect tells us that we need to apply laser light of a wavelength other than the value given above. m There is given a velocity spectrum embracing velocity magnitude from v 1 ? 0 to s m v 2 ? 6,000 . (see fig. 19.1) s fig. 19.1

1.1.1 What range of wavelength of the laser beam must be used to excite ions of all velocities in the velocity spectrum given above ? 1.1.2 A rigorous analysis of the problem calls for application of the principle from the theory of special relativity

Solution
1.1
1.1.1 Let v be the velocity of the ion towards the laser source relative to the laser source, ν? the frequency of the laser light as observed by the observer moving with the ion (e.g. in the frame in which the velocity of the ion is 0) and ν the frequency of the laser light as observed by the observer at rest with respect to the laser source. Classical formula for Doppler? s effect is given as ? v? ? ? ? ? ? ?1 ? ? ? c?

(1)

Let ν* be the frequency absorbed by an ion (characteristic of individual ions) and νL be the frequency of the laser light used to excite an ion at rest, hence: ν* = νL For a moving ion, the frequency used to excite ions must be lower than ν*.

Given two energy levels of the ion, corresponding to wavelength λ(1) = 600 nm and λ(2) = 600+10-2 nm For the sake of simplicity, the following sign notations will be adopted: The superscript in the bracket indicates energy level (1) or (2) as the case may be. The sign ? above denotes the case when accelerating voltage is applied, and also the subscripts H and L apply to absorbed frequencies (and also wavelengths) correspond to the high velocity and low velocity ends of the velocity spectrum of the ion beam respectively. The subscript following λ (or ν) can be either 1 or 2, with number 1 corresponding to lowest velocity of the ion and number 2 the highest velocity of the ion. When no accelerating voltage is applied, the subscript 1 implies that minimum velocity of the ion is 0, and the highest velocity of the ion is 6000 m/s. If accelerating voltage U is applied, number 1 indicates that the wavelength of laser light pertains to the ion of lowest velocity and number 2 indicates the ion of the highest velocity. Finally the sign * indicates the value of the wavelength (λ*) or frequency (ν*) absorbed by the ion (characteristic absorbed frequency).

(Note the prime sign to denote the situation in which the accelerating voltage is used), and let λH(2)? and λL(2)? represent the range of the wavelengths used to excite ions in the second energy level also when an accelerating voltage is applied.

THEORY 2 Maxwell? s Wheel
Introduction A cylindrical wheel of uniform density, having the mass M = 0,40 kg, the radius R = 0,060 m and the thickness d = 0,010 m is suspended by means of two light strings of the same length from the ceiling. Each string is wound around the axle of the wheel. Like the strings, the mass of the axle is negligible. When the wheel is turned manually, the strings are wound up until the centre of mass is raised 1,0 m above the floor. If the wheel is allowed to move downward vertically under the pulling force of the gravity, the strings are unwound to the full length of

IPHO-1988 Bad Ischl / Austria Problems and Solutions the strings and the wheel reaches the lowest point. The strings then begin to wound in the opposite sense resulting in the wheel being raised upwards. Analyze and answer the following questions, assuming that the strings are in vertical position and the points where the strings touch the axle are directly below their respective suspending points (see fig. 19.5 a and b). fig. 19.5

2.1
Determine the angular speed of the wheel when the centre of mass of the wheel covers vertical distance s.

2.2
Determine the kinetic energy of the linear motion of the centre of mass Er after the wheel travels a distance s = 0,50 m, and calculate the ratio between Er and the energy in any other form in this problem up to this point. Radius of the axle = 0,0030 m

2.3
Determine the tension in the string while the wheel is moving downward.

2.4
Calculate the angular speed ω? as a function of the angle Φ when the strings begin to unwind themselves in opposite sense as depicted in fig. 19.6. Sketch a graph of variables which describe the motion (in cartesian system which suits the problem) and also the speed of the centre of mass as a function of Φ. fig. 19.6

EXPERIMENTS
PART 1: Polarized Light
General Information
Equipment: ? one electric tungsten bulb made of frosedt-surface glass complete with mounting stand, 1 set ? 3 wooden clamps, each of which contains a slit for light experiment ? 2 glass plates; one of which is rectangular and the other one is square-shaped ? 1 polaroid sheet (circular-shaped) ? 1 red film or filter ? 1 roll self adhesive tape ? 6 pieces of self-adhesive labelling tape ? 1 cellophane sheet ? 1 sheet of black paper ? 1 drawing triangle with a handle ? 1 unerasable luminocolour pen 312, extra fine and black colour ? 1 lead pencil type F ? 1 lead pencil type H ? 1 pencil sharpener ? 1 eraser ? 1 pair of scissors

Important Instructions to be Followed
1. There are 4 pieces of labelling tape coded for each contestant. Stick the tape one each on the instrument marked with the sign #. Having done this, the contestant may proceed to perform the experiment to answer the questions. 2. Cutting, etching, scraping or folding the polaroid is strictly forbidden. 3. If marking is to be made on the polaroid, use the lumino-colour pen provided and put the cap back in place after finishing.

Black paper may be cut into pieces for use in the experiment, but the best way of using the black paper is to roll it into a cylinder as to form a shield around the electric bulb. An aperture of proper size may be cut into the side of the cylinder to form an outlet for light used in the experiment. 7. Red piece of paper is to be folded to form a double layer.

The following four questions will be answered by performing the experiment:

Question 1.1
1.1.a Locate the axis of the light transmission of the polaroid film. This may be done by observing light reflected from the surface of the rectangular glass plate provided. (Light transmitting axis is the direction of vibration of the electric field vector of light wave transmitted through the polaroid). Draw a straight line along the light transmission axis as exactely as possible on the polaroid film. (#) 1.1.b Set up the apparatus on the graph paper for the experiment to determine the refractive index of the glass plate for white light. When unpolarized light is reflected at the glass plate, reflected light is partially polarized. Polarization of the reflected light is a maximum if the tangens of incident angle is equal to the refractive index of the glass plate, or: tan α = n. Draw lines or dots that are related to the determination of the refractive index on the graph paper. (#)

Question 1.2
Assemble a polariscope to observe birefringence in birefringent glass plate when light is normally incident on the plastic sheet and the glass plates. A birefringent object is the object which splits light into two components, with the electric field vectors of the two components perpendicular to each other. The two directions of the electric field vectors are known as birefringent axes characteristic of birefringent material. These two components of light travel with different velocity. Draw a simple sketch depicting design and functions of the polariscope assembled. Insert a sheet of clear cellophane in the path of light in the polariscope. Draw lines to indicate birefringent axes (#). Comment briefly but concisely on what is observed, and describe how berefringent axes are located.

Question 1.3
1.3.a Stick 10 layers of self-adhesive tape provided on the glass plate as shown below. Make sure that each layer recedes in equal steps. fig. 19.10 G square glass plate as a substrate for the cellophane layers T 10 layers of cellophane sheet S steps about 3 mm up to 4 mm wide Insert the assembled square plate into the path of light in the polariscope. Describe conditions for observing colours. How can these colours be changed ? Comment on the observations from this experiment. 1.3.b Prepare monochromatic red light by placing doubly-folded red plastic sheet in the path of white light. Mark on the assembled square plate to show the steps which allow the determination of the difference of the optical paths of the two components of light from berefringent phenomenon, described under 1.2 (#). Estimate the difference of the optical paths from two consecutive steps.

Question 1.4
1.4.a With the polariscope assembled, examine the central part of the drawing triangle provided. Describe relevant optical properties of the drawing triangle pertaining to berefringence. 1.4.b Comment on the results observed. Draw conclusions about the physical properties of the material of which the triangle is made.

Solution
In this experiment the results from one experimental stage are used to solve problems in the following experimental stages. Without actually performing all parts of the experiment, solution cannot be meaningfully discussed. It suffices that some transparent crystals are anisotropic, meaning their optical properties vary with the direction. Crystals which have this property are said to be doubly refracting or exhibit birefringece. This phenomen can be understood on the basis of wave theory. When a wavefront enters a birefringent material, two sets of Huygens wavelets propagate from every point of the entering wavefront causing the incident light to split into two components of two different velocities. In some crystals there is a particular direction (or rather a set of parallel directions) in which the velocities of the two components are the same. This direction is known as optic axes. the former is said to be uniaxial, and the latter biaxial. If a plane polarized light (which may be white light or monochromatic light) is allowed to enter a uniaxial birefringed material, with its plane of polarization making some angle, say 45°with the optic axis, the incident light is splitted into two components (ordinary and extraordinary) travelling with two different velocities. Because of different velocities their phases different. Upon emerging from the crystal, the two components recombine to from a resultant wave. The phase difference between the two components causes the resultant wave to be either linearly or circularly or elliptical polarized depending on the phase difference between the two components. The type of polarization can be determined by means of an analyser which is a second polaroid sheet provided for this experiment.

PROBLEM 2 Electron Tube
Introduction
Free electrons in a metal may be thought of as being “electron gas” confined in potential or energy walls. Under normal conditions or even when a voltage is applied near the surface of the metal, these electrons cannot leave the potential walls (see fig. 19.11) If however the metal or the electron gas is heated, the electrons have enough thermal energy (kinetic energy) to overcome the energy barrier W (W is known as “work function”). If a voltage is applied across the metal and the anode, these thermally activated electrons may reach the anode. The number of electrons arriving at the anode per unit time depends on the nature of the cathode and the temperature, i.e. all electrons freed from the potential wall will reach the anode no longer increase with applied voltage (see fig. 19.11) The saturated current corresponding to the number of thermally activated electrons freed from the metal surface per unit time obeys what is generally known as Richardson? s equation i.e.
