Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Despite being considered a mature field, physics research continues to be a vibrant and active topic throughout the world, with the number of publications continually increasing over time. The continued interest in the application of physics and engineering mathematics demands new ways to share cutting-edge research in the field. Physics research is important not only from a fundamental point of view but for its engineering and industrial applications including machinery, electronics, material, and biological industries. The international competitiveness of those industries in a globalized economy is closely tied to their technologies and products.

The ICPEM2020 provides an opportunity to be part of scientific acceleration for world-class personalities, young scholars, scientific delegates, and young scientists to join in this conference to utilize the expertise and novelties that will lead to a new era for innovations in the field. It also provides a special channel to have open discussions, knowledge sharing, and interactive sessions with field experts.

This Special Issue will publish the latest physics and engineering mathematics research trends, including applications, advanced technologies, and processes. It covers several fields of physics and their technological applications, such as advanced theoretical physics, condensed matter physics, statistical physics, nonlinear mechanics, optics, atomic and molecular physics, quantum physics, biological modeling and information, chemical physics, materials physics, and other related topics. It also includes different fields of engineering mathematics, such as analytical models applied to electrical engineering smart grids and power distribution lines, mathematical models for engineering oceanography, mechanics and acoustics, and for different classes of metamaterials and sensors devices and other affine topics.

We personally invite you and your colleagues to submit a contribution in the form of original scientific reports, research articles, communications, and review articles for this Special Issue. We would like to thank the presenters and speakers in advance for your attendance at this conference and your submissions. We look forward to a stimulating exchange.

Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Dr. Josh Sheng, (email: [email protected]).

For any questions regarding the journal, you may also get assistance from the editorial office (Assistant to the Editor Ms. Marin Ma, email: [email protected])

Looking forward to hearing from you.

The 2020 International Conference on Physics and Engineering Mathematics (ICPEM2020) will take place during 19-20 September 2020, in Beijing, China.

A Large-Deformation Gradient Damage Model for Single Crystals Based on Microdamage Theory

This work aims at the unification of the thermodynamically consistent representation of the micromorphic theory and the microdamage approach for the purpose of modeling crack growth and damage regularization in crystalline solids. In contrast to the thermodynamical representation of the microdamage theory, micromorphic contribution to flow resistance is defined in a dual fashion as energetic and dissipative in character, in order to bring certain clarity and consistency to the modeling aspects. The approach is further extended for large deformations and numerically implemented in a commercial finite element software. Specific numerical model problems are presented in order to demonstrate the ability of the approach to regularize anisotropic damage fields for large deformations and eliminate mesh dependency.

A broadband chirped-pulse Fourier transform microwave spectrometer was used to detect the rotational spectra of the products of a chemical reaction in the gas phase from 1-18 GHz under the supersonic expansion condition. In natural abundance, pure rotational energy level transitions of tert-butyl chloride and its isotopologues (13C, 37Cl) were observed and assigned. The rotational spectral parameters (rotational constant, quadrupole coupling constant and centrifugal distortion constant) of these isotopologues were determined. The experimental results are in great agreement with the calculated values of quantum chemistry and the spectral parameters in the literature. The accuracy and the capability for chemical detection of our homemade rotational spectrometer were verified by this experiment. Full article

Error Analysis and Calibration Improvement of the Imaging Section in a Mueller Matrix Microscope

Currently, there are various calibration methods available to reduce the errors caused by the polarizing section of a dual-rotating-retarder polarimeter. Although these methods have high measurement accuracy, their robustness must be improved and the influence of the imaging section needs be discussed when they are applied in Mueller matrix microscopes. In this paper, a method of error source analysis and element calibration for the Mueller matrix microscope is proposed by using error transform coefficient matrices to account for the polarizing effect of the imaging section. Using Taylor expansion, an approximate linear relationship is established between the sources of errors and the Mueller matrix elements of the measured sample. From this relationship, error magnification coefficient matrices are calculated to determine the specific parameter errors in both the polarizing and imaging sections. Furthermore, elements in the fourth row or column of the error magnification coefficient matrix are especially important for the imaging section. The measurement and simulation results for an air sample and a quarter-wave plate sample as the standard samples, as well as a Daphnia organism sample with complex internal structure, are investigated and discussed. Furthermore, the comparison results reveal the effect of the imaging section on the birefringence characteristics of the Mueller matrix. With the proposed method, the maximum error can be reduced to be less than 0.01 for all the matrix elements and for the amplitude parameter of birefringence, even when the two system parameters a 2 and a 3 of the rotating mechanical part deviate from the default.
