The early events in protein collapse and folding are guided by the protein's elasticity. The contributions of entropic coiling and poor solvent effects like hydrophobic forces to the elastic response of proteins are currently unknown. Using molecular simulations of stretched ubiquitin in comparison with models of proteins as entropic chains, we find a(More)
Two dimensional resonators with a smooth strictly convex boundary are known to possess a whispering gallery region supporting modes concentrated near the boundary. A new class of asymmetric resonant cavities is introduced, where a whispering gallery-like region is found deep inside the resonator. The construction of such resonators is a novel application of(More)
