  1. Comment on "Deterministic six states protocol for quantum communication" [Phys. Lett. A 358 (2006) 85

    El-Orany, Faisal A A


    In [J.S. Shaari, M. Lucamarini, M.R.B. Wahiddin, Phys. Lett. A 358 (2006) 85-90] the deterministic six states protocol (6DP) for quantum communication has been developed. This protocol is based on three mutually unbiased bases and four encoding operators. Information is transmitted between the users via two qubits from different bases. Three attacks have been studied; namely intercept-resend attack (IRA), double-CNOT attack (2CNOTA) and quantum man-in-the-middle attack. In this Letter, we show that the IRA and 2CNOTA are not properly addressed. For instance, we show that the probability of detecting Eve in the control mode of the IRA is 70% instead of 50% in the previous study. Moreover, in the 2CNOTA, Eve can only obtain 50% of the data not all of it as argued earlier.

    Feng, F.; Ma, J. P.; Wang, Q.


    A new method is proposed to calculate wave functions in kT-factorization in [H.-n. Li, S. Mishima, Phys. Lett. B 674 (2009) 182, arXiv:0808.1526] as a comment about our paper [F. Feng, J.P. Ma, Q. Wang, Phys. Lett. B 674 (2009) 176, arXiv:0807.0296]. We point out that the results obtained with the method are in conflict with the translation invariance and depend on the chosen contours for loop-integrals. Therefore, the method is in principle unacceptable and the results with the method cannot be correct.

    Recently, Zhang et al. (Phys. Rev. Lett. 91, 157404 (2003)) have demonstrated that an amphoteric refraction, i. e. both positive and negative refraction, may prevail at the interface of two uniaxial anisotropic crystals when their optical axes are in different directions. The authors subsequently made a correspondence between such a refraction with the negative refraction expected for Left Handed Materials (LHMs). Here we comment that the amphoteric refraction can be observed even with one un...

  5. Comment on "A three-loop radiative neutrino mass model with dark matter" [Phys. Lett. B 741 (2015) 163

    Geng, Chao-Qiang; Tsai, Lu-Hsing


    We revisit the calculation of the three-loop diagrams for the radiative neutrino mass generation and consider some relevant constraints on the model recently proposed by L. Jin {\\it et al} [Phys. Lett. B 741 (2015) 163]. We find that the previous approximation is inappropriate due to the neglect of some important contributions, and the benchmark point proposed can neither give rise to enough neutrino masses nor accommodate these additional constraints, such as the validity of the perturbation theory, the electroweak precision measurements, and the neutrinoless double beta decays.

  6. Comment on "A new exactly solvable quantum model in $N$ dimensions" [Phys. Lett. A 375(2011)1431, arXiv:1007.1335

    We pinpoint that the work about "a new exactly solvable quantum model in $N$ dimensions" by Ballesteros et al. [Phys. Lett. A {\\bf 375} (2011) 1431, arXiv:1007.1335] is not a new exactly solvable quantum model since the flaw of the position-dependent mass Hamiltonian proposed by them makes it less valuable in physics.

    In a recent Letter [R. Friedberg, J.T. Manassah, Phys. Lett. A 372 (2008) 2514] Friedberg and Manassah argue that effect of virtual photons has serious consequences for large atomic samples. Here we show that such effect is negligible for evolution of a uniformly excited atomic state prepared by absorption of a single photon.

  14. Erratum: Creation of X-Ray Transparency of Matter by Stimulated Elastic Forward Scattering [Phys. Rev. Lett. 115 , 107402 (2015)

    Stöhr, J.; Scherz, A.


    X-ray absorption by matter has long been described by the famous Beer-Lambert law. Here we show how this fundamental law needs to be modified for high-intensity coherent x-ray pulses, now available at x-ray free electron lasers, due to the onset of stimulated elastic forward scattering. We present an analytical expression for the modified polarization-dependent Beer-Lambert law for the case of resonant core-to-valence electronic transitions and incident transform limited x-ray pulses. Upon transmission through a solid, the absorption and dichroic contrasts are found to vanish with increasing x-ray intensity, with the stimulation threshold lowered by orders of magnitude through a super-radiative coherent effect. Our results have broad implications for the study of matter with x-ray lasers.

    Stein, Fredrick


    The Physics Teacher Education Coalition (PhysTEC) is a community of physics departments representing scientists and educators at institutions dedicated to improving the science preparation of future K-12 teachers. Now in its second year, PhysTEC requires physics and education faculty to work together to provide an education for future teachers that emphasizes interactive engagement and a student-centered approach to learning science. The first six Coalition members are the physics departments at Ball State University, Oregon State University, University of Arizona, University of Arkansas, Western Michigan University, and Xavier University of Louisiana. PhysTEC is creating a broad, active Coalition of physics departments that have implemented or are interested in implementing one or more of the PhysTEC Program Components. · A long-term, active collaboration among the physics department, the department of education, and the local schools. · A Teacher-in-Residence (TIR) program that provides for a full-time participant in assisting faculty in course revisions. · The redesign of physics courses based on results from physics education research. · The redesign of elementary and secondary science methods courses with an emphasis on inquiry-based teaching and learning. · The establishment of a mentoring program to provide a valuable induction experience for novice science teachers. · The participation of physics faculty in the improvement and expansion of school experiences.

  18. Comment on "Compact envelope dark solitary wave in a discrete nonlinear electrical transmission line" [Phys. Lett. A 373 (2009) 3801-3809

    Yamgoué, Serge Bruno; Pelap, François Beceau


    We revisit the derivation of the equation modeling envelope waves in a discrete nonlinear electrical transmission line (NLTL) considered a few years back in Physics Letters A 373 (2009) 3801-3809. Using a combination of rotating wave approximation and the Gardner-Morikawa transformation, we show that the modulated waves are described by a new type of extended nonlinear Schrödinger equation. In addition the expressions of several coefficients of this equation are found to be strongly different from those given earlier. As a consequence, key relationships between these coefficients that sustained the previous analysis are broken.

  1. Comment on Y. Couder and E. Fort: "Single-Particle Diffraction and Interference at a Macroscopic Scale", Phys. Rev. Lett. (2006)

    Andersen, Anders; Reichelt, Christian; Ahl, Sonja Rosenlund; Lautrup, Benny; Ellegaard, Clive; Levinsen, Mogens T; Bohr, Tomas


    In a paper from 2006, Couder and Fort [1] describe a version of the famous double slit experiment performed with drops bouncing on a vibrated fluid surface, where interference in the particle statistics is found even though it is possible to determine unambiguously which slit the "walking" drop passes. It is one of the first papers in an impressive series, showing that such walking drops closely resemble de Broglie waves and can reproduce typical quantum phenomena like tunneling and quantized states [2-13]. The double slit experiment is, however, a more stringent test of quantum mechanics, because it relies upon superposition and phase coherence. In the present comment we first point out that the experimental data presented in [1] are not convincing, and secondly we argue that it is not possible in general to capture quantum mechanical results in a system, where the trajectory of the particle is well-defined.

  2. Comment on "Observation of a push force on the end face of a nanometer silica filament exerted by outgoing light," Phys. Rev. Lett. 101, 243601 (2008)

    Mansuripur, Masud


    In a recent paper, W. She, J. Yu and R. Feng reported the slight deformations observed upon transmission of a light pulse through a fairly short length of a silica glass nano-fiber. Relating the shape and magnitude of these deformations to the momentum of the light pulse both inside and outside the fiber, these authors concluded that, within the fiber, the photons carry the Abraham momentum. In my view, the authors' claim that they have resolved the Abraham-Minkowski controversy surrounding the momentum of photons inside dielectric media is premature. A correct interpretation of the experiments of She et al requires precise calculations that would properly account not only for the electromagnetic momentum (both inside and outside the fiber) but also for the Lorentz force exerted on the fiber by the light pulse in its entire path through this nano-waveguide.

  3. Addendum to: “Quadrupole collectivity in silicon isotopes approaching neutron number N = 28” [Phys. Lett. B 652 (2007) 169

    Since the acceptance of this Letter, we have been reminded that enhanced collectivity was predicted in 40-42Si in Ref. [40] by Grevy et al. based on a QRPA analysis of the β-decay halflives of these isotopes. We regret this oversight. Furthermore, a Letter on the first gamma-ray spectroscopy of 42Si [41] was published after the acceptance of the present Letter. This new experiment found a lower 21+ energy in 42Si than is found in 40Si, pointing to enhanced collectivity and a breakdown of the N = 28 shell closure.

  4. Introduction to "contextual values" and a simpler counterexample to a claim of Dressel, Agarwal, and Jordan [Phys. Rev. Lett. 104 240401 (2010)

    Parrott, Stephen


    The abstract of the paper mentioned in the title, called DAJ below, states: "We introduce contextual values as a generalization of the eigenvalues of an observable that takes into account both the system observable and a general measurement procedure. This technique leads to a natural definition of a general conditioned average that converges uniquely to the quantum weak value in the minimal disturbance limit." A counterexample to the claim of the last sentence was presented in arXiv:1102.4407v6, a 32-page paper discussing various topics related to DAJ. The counterexample relied on a fairly complicated solution of a system of linear equations with algebraic coefficients, and so was not entirely intuitive. The second half of the present note gives a simplified counterexample, all of whose steps can be verified mentally. The first half summarizes the main ideas of DAJ.

  6. High energy neutrinos from astrophysical accelerators of cosmic ray nuclei

    Anchordoqui, Luis A.; Hooper, Dan; Sarkar, Subir; Taylor, Andrew M.


    Ongoing experimental efforts to detect cosmic sources of high energy neutrinos are guided by the expectation that astrophysical accelerators of cosmic ray protons would also generate neutrinos through interactions with ambient matter and/or photons. However, there will be a reduction in the predicted neutrino flux if cosmic ray sources accelerate not only protons but also significant numbers of heavier nuclei, as is indicated by recent air shower data. We consider plausible extragalactic sources such as active galactic nuclei, gamma ray bursts and starburst galaxies and demand consistency with the observed cosmic ray composition and energy spectrum at Earth after allowing for propagation through intergalactic radiation fields. This allows us to calculate the expected neutrino fluxes from the sources, normalized to the observed cosmic ray spectrum. We find that the likely signals are still within reach of next generation neutrino telescopes such as IceCube.PACS95.85.Ry98.70.Rz98.54.Cm98.54.EpReferencesFor a review, see:F.HalzenD.HooperRep.

    Colmenero, J.


    In a recent paper by Ngai and Capaccioli ["Unified explanation of the anomalous dynamic properties of highly asymmetric polymer blends," J. Chem. Phys. 138, 054903 (2013), 10.1063/1.4789585] the authors claimed that the so-called coupling model (CM) provides a unified explanation of all dynamical anomalies that have been reported for dynamically asymmetric blends over last ten years. Approximately half of the paper is devoted to chain-dynamic properties involving un-entangled polymers. According to the authors, the application of the CM to these results is based on the existence of a crossover at a time tc ≈ 1-2 ns of the magnitudes describing chain-dynamics. Ngai and Capaccioli claimed that the existence of such a crossover is supported by the neutron scattering and MD-simulation results, corresponding to the blend poly(methyl methacrylate)/poly(ethylene oxide), by Niedzwiedz et al. [Phys. Rev. Lett. 98, 168301 (2007), 10.1103/PhysRevLett.98.168301] and Brodeck et al. [Macromolecules 43, 3036 (2010), 10.1021/ma902820a], respectively. Being one of the authors of these two papers, I will demonstrate here that there is no evidence supporting such a crossover in the data reported in these papers.

  8. Research-based resources on PhysPort

    Sayre, Eleanor


    PhysPort ( is a website that supports physics faculty in implementing research-based teaching practices in their classrooms. We provide expert recommendations and practical information about teaching methods and assessment. The PhysPort Data Explorer is an intuitive online tool for physics faculty to analyze their assessment data. Faculty upload their students' responses using our secure interface. The Data Explorer matches their pre/post data, scores it, compares it to national data, and graphs it in an interactive and intuitive manner. The Periscope collection on Physport brings together classroom video of students working groups with professional development materials for faculty, pre-service teachers, and learning assistants. To support PhysPort's development efforts, we conduct research on faculty needs around teaching and assessment, secondary analysis of published PER studies, and primary analysis of assessment data. In this talk, I'll introduce some of PhysPort's research-based resources and the research results which support them.

  9. Numerical Study of Low-Loss Cross Lett-Handed Metamaterials at Visible Frequency

    ZHU Wei-Ren; ZHAO Xiao-Peng


    We present a numerical study of Lett-handed metamaterials (LHMs) composed of double cross pairs at visible frequency. The S-parameter retrieval method is adopted to confirm the negative refractive characteristic of this design. Compared with fishnet LHMs, the proposed cross LHMs have a much lower loss, which will greatly facilitate practical applications. It is also found that, with the same size of resonant ceils, the cross LHMs have a higher frequency than fishnet LHMs, which is explained using a simple effective LC circuit model.

    Full Text Available The analysis of the motive structure’s features in the play “August: Osage County” by a modern American writer Tr. Letts has been reviewed in this article. His drama is based on a compound of mass and elite, a playing and a moral. It allows to avoid the text’s tendentiousness and to keep the content. In the play “August: Osage County” Tr. Letts examines the family theme, which is very important for the American culture. The author reviews the destruction of family relationships as a sign of the society’s moral crisis. The main topic has been realized via motives (escapism, freedom, death, and incest, they create the semantic frame of the play and unite separate episodes of the plot’s development. The motives become special tools of the characters’ psychological analysis and are an explanation of the feelings’ contradictory. The image of the house has a special meaning. It’s the symbol of the human disunity and a destruction of the family relations. As a result the synthesis of the motives, symbolism, intertextuality, multilayer has been viewed as a particular tool of the author’s opinion realization and the philosophical implication’s creation

  11. Comments on ``The Euclidean gravitational action as black hole entropy, singularities, and space-time voids'' [J. Math. Phys. 49, 042501 (2008)

    Mitra, Abhas


    We point out that the space-time void inferred by Castro [J. Math. Phys. 49, 042501 (2008)] results from his choice of a discontinuous radial gauge. Further since the integration constant α0=2M0 (G =c=1) occurring in the vacuum Hilbert/Schwarzschild solution of a neutral "point mass" is zero [Arnowitt et al., in Gravitation: An Introduction to Current Research, edited by L. Witten (Wiley, New York, 1962), Chap. 7, p. 227; also Phys. Rev. Lett. 4, 375 (1960). A. Mitra, Adv. Space Res. 38, 2917 (2006); Proceedings of the XIth Marcel-Grossmann Conference on General Relativity (World Scientific, Singapore, 2008), Vol. 3, p. 1968], Castro's gauge reduces to the well behaved and physical Hilbert gauge. Physically this means that true Hilbert/Schwarzschild black holes have unique gravitational mass M =0. Accordingly, the unphysical space-time void inferred by Castro is actually nonexistent.

    We have identified a bias in the calculation of the cross section of J / ψ production measured in the e+e- channel at central rapidity (| y | < 0.9) [1]. The acceptance and efficiency corrections were evaluated using a Monte Carlo simulation, based on PYTHIA [2,3], which did not include the radiative decays of J / ψ (J / ψ →e+e- γ). In these decays the reconstructed dielectron invariant mass, me+e-, is biased towards smaller values than the nominal J / ψ mass, since the photon contribution is neglected. As a consequence, the fraction of signal events in the me+e- range 2.92-3.16 GeV/c2 was overestimated by about 10%. Moreover, the requirement of the transverse momentum of the daughter electrons being larger than 1 GeV/c is more selective for radiative than non-radiative J / ψ decays. Therefore, the J / ψ acceptance was also overestimated by about 5%.

  14. On the sensitivity of extracting the astrophysical cross section factor of the 12C(a,g) reaction from existing data [Comment on Schuermann et al. Phys. Lett. B711(2012)35

    Gai, Moshe


    We address a conflicting report on the value and uncertainty of the astrophysical cross section factor of the 12C(a,g) reaction extracted from existing data. In sharp contrast to previously reported ambiguities (by up to a factor 8), Schuermann et al. suggest an accuracy of 12%. We demonstrate that the so claimed "rigorous data selection criteria" used by Schuermann et al. relies on the s-factors extracted by Assuncao et al. But these results were shown in a later analysis (by this author) to have large error bars (considerably larger than claimed by Assuncao em et al.) which render these data not appropriate for a rigorous analysis. When their "rigorous data selection" is adjusted to remove the results of Assuncao et al. the astrophysical cross section factor cannot be extracted with 12% accuracy, or even close to it. Such data on the S_E2 values at low energies deviate by up to a factor two from their fit and exhibit a sharper slope rising toward low energies, leading to strong doubt on their extrapolated S...

    We comment on a study by Nadykto et al. recently published in this journal. Earlier work from our group has been misrepresented in this study, and we feel that the claims made need to be amended. Also the analysis of Nadykto et al. concerning the implications of their own density functional calculations is incomplete. We present cluster formation simulations allowing more conclusions to be drawn from their data, and also compare them to recent experimental results not cited in their work.

    Perez, J C; Boldyrev, S; Cattaneo, F


    The inertial-interval energy spectrum of strong magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) turbulence with a uniform background magnetic field was observed numerically to be close to $k^{-3/2}$ by a number of independent groups. A dissenting opinion has been voiced by Beresnyak, A. 2011, PRL, 106, 075001-. 2012, MNRAS, 422, 3495-. 2014, ApJ, 784, L20 that the spectral scaling is close to $k^{-5/3}$. The conclusions of these papers are however incorrect as they are based on numerical simulations that are drastically unresolved, so that the discrete numerical scheme does not approximate the physical solution at the scales where the measurements are performed. These results have been rebutted in our more detailed papers Perez, J. C., Mason, J., Boldyrev, S., & Cattaneo, F. 2012, PRX, 2, 041005-. 2014, ApJL, 793, L13; here, by popular demand, we present a brief and simple explanation of our major criticism of Beresnyak's work.

  20. The PhysTEC Teacher Education Program at FIU

    Kramer, Laird


    The FIU PhysTEC Project is an integral component of the Physics Department's educational transformation that has led to more than a ten-fold increase in majors. The transformation seeks to increase the quality and quantity of physics majors and future physics teachers, including those from historically underrepresented groups. Elements of the efforts include transformed introductory physics courses, establishment of a physics research and learning community, engagement of stakeholders spanning high school through the university administration, and advocacy by a physics education research group. The PhysTEC Project supports future physics teachers through a Learning Assistant program coupled to newly revised secondary education programs. The Learning Assistant program is an experiential program that recruits new students into teaching careers while providing a mechanism for transforming courses - undergraduates experience the rewards and intellectual challenges of teaching through providing interactive engagement learning experiences for their peers in introductory physics courses. Students that continue in the program enroll in a multidisciplinary teacher preparation program and may receive significant financial support. FIU is a minority-serving urban public research institution in Miami, Florida serving over 39,000 students, of which 64% are Hispanic, 13% are Black, and 56% are women. Programmatic strategies and impacts of the program will be provided.

    The authors of the above paper call into question recent evidence on the properties of self-interstitials, I, in Ge [Cowern et al., Phys. Rev. Lett. 110, 155501 (2013)]. We show that this judgment stems from invalid model assumptions during analysis of data on B marker-layer diffusion during proton irradiation, and that a corrected analysis fully supports the reported evidence. As previously stated, I-mediated self-diffusion in Ge exhibits two distinct regimes of temperature, T: high-T, dominated by amorphous-like mono-interstitial clusters—i-morphs—with self-diffusion entropy ≈30 k, and low-T, where transport is dominated by simple self-interstitials. In a transitional range centered on 475 °C both mechanisms contribute. The experimental I migration energy of 1.84 ± 0.26 eV reported by the Münster group based on measurements of self-diffusion during irradiation at 550 °C < T < 680 °C further establishes our proposed i-morph mechanism.

  2. Preface: phys. stat. sol. (a) 202/12

    Neumann, Wolfgang; Stutzmann, Martin; Hildebrandt, Stefan


    The present special issue contains a collection of Original Papers dedicated to Professor Johannes Heydenreich on the occasion of his 75th birthday.Johannes Heydenreich, born on 20 June 1930 in Plauen/Vogtland near Dresden, studied physics at the Pädagogische Hochschule Potsdam, where he obtained his first academic degree Dipl. Phys. in 1958. He received his doctoral degree at the Martin Luther University in Halle in 1961 and the Habilitation degree in 1969. Already during his studies in Potsdam, he showed an interest in electron microscopy due to the influence of his teacher and supervisor Prof. Picht, one of the pioneers in electron optics. His interests were strengthened when Johannes Heydenreich did the experimental work for his Diploma degree at the Institute for Experimental Physics of the University of Halle, where he met Prof. Heinz Bethge for the first time. This was the beginning of a fruitful and longstanding collaboration. In 1962 Johannes Heydenreich joined the team of the later Institute for Solid State Physics and Electron Microscopy of the Academy of Sciences of the GDR, in Halle, for which the basis was laid by Prof. Bethge in 1960.Heydenreich has been working as Assistant Director for many years and played a decisive role in introducing and organising the various techniques of electron microscopy in the institute.The research activities of Prof. Heydenreich covered a broad spectrum over the years. At the beginning of his career he made significant contributions in the field of electron mirror microscopy. After that, his main interests were focused on transmission electron microscopy, ranging from diffraction contrast analysis of crystal defects to high-resolution electron microscopy and image processing. His favourite field was studies of defect-induced phenomena in advanced materials. The so-called Bethge-Heydenreich, the book Electron Microscopy in Solid State Physics, published at first in a German edition in 1982 and later in a revised

  3. Comment on "On quantum plasma: A plea for a common sense [Europhys. Lett., 99 25001(2012)

    Shukla, P K


    In a recent paper, J. Vranjes et al. [Europhys. Lett., 99 25001 (2012)] have questioned the validity and applications of quantum plasma theories. Based on a fallacious argument, they conclude that the physical applications of well founded quantum plasma theory is limited only to very high densities with much lower temperatures, such as those found in neutron-star core regions. Our objective here is to demonstrate that Vranjes et al's criterion for the applicability of the quantum plasma theory is misleading and erroneous.

  4. Chemistry Teacher Education Coalition: Extending the PhysTEC Model to Chemistry

    Kirchhoff, Mary


    The American Association of Employment in Education reports that chemistry, like physics, faces ``some shortage'' of educators. Inspired by the success of the Physics Teacher Education Coalition (PhysTEC), the American Chemical Society (ACS) is developing the Chemistry Teacher Education Coalition (CTEC) to actively engage chemistry departments in the preparation of future chemistry teachers. Engaging chemistry departments in teacher preparation would increase the number and diversity of well-prepared high school chemistry teachers while catalyzing cultural change within chemistry departments. Many features of PhysTEC, such as a grant competition to create model teacher preparation programs and regular conferences, are directly applicable to chemistry. This presentation will provide an overview of ACS efforts to launch a successful CTEC initiative.

  5. Comment on Weakly dissipative dust-ion acoustic wave modulation (J. Plasma Phys. 82, 905820104, 2016)

    Kourakis, I.; Elkamash, I. S.


    In a recent article (J. Plasma Phys., vol. 82, 2009, 905820104), weakly dissipative dust-ion acoustic wave modulation in dusty plasmas was considered. It is shown in this Comment that the analysis therein involved severe fallacies, and is in fact based on an erroneous plasma fluid model, which fails to satisfy an equilibrium condition, among other shortcomings. The subsequent analysis therefore is dubious and of limited scientific value.

Phys. 135, 134508 (2011)], Philippe and Blavette, 10.1063/1.3644935 claimed to have found for the first time—based on minimum free energy considerations—that the nucleation pathway in solid solutions involves a universal two-step behavior: nuclei sharply enrich up to near equilibrium values of the concentration and then grow. This claim of priority is not correct. The same scenario was proposed by us long ago [J. W. P. Schmelzer, A. R. Gokhman, and V. M. Fokin, J. Colloid Interface Sci. 272, 109 (2004)], 10.1016/j.jcis.2003.08.038 and then applied and further developed. In particular, it was shown by us that only the account of both thermodynamic and kinetic factors allows one to determine correctly the most probable path of evolution in nucleation-growth processes. The two-step scenario is retained, however, also in these generalizations of our original approach.

    Ghosh, Uday Narayan, E-mail:; Chatterjee, Prasanta; Roychoudhury, Rajkumar [Department of Mathematics, Siksha Bhavana, Visva Bharati, Santiniketan 731235 (India)


    Recently Gun Li et al. discussed “Effects of damping solitary wave in a viscosity bounded plasma” [Phys. Plasmas 21, 022118 (2014)]. The paper contains some serious errors which have been pointed out in this Comment.

  8. PREFACE: International Symposium "Nanoscience and Quantum Physics 2011" (nanoPHYS'11)

    Saito, Susumu; Tanaka, Hidekazu; Nakamura, Takashi; Nakamura, Masaaki


    Quantum physics has developed modern views of nature for more than a century. In addition to this traditional role, quantum physics has acquired new significance in the 21st century as the field responsible for driving and supporting nanoscience research, which will have even greater importance in the future because nanoscience will be the academic foundation for new technologies. The Department of Physics, Tokyo Institute of Technology, are now conducting a "Nanoscience and Quantum Physics" project (Physics G-COE project) supported by the Global Center of Excellence Program of the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology of Japan (MEXT) in order to promote research and education in these important academic fields. The International Symposium on Nanoscience and Quantum Physics, held in Tokyo, Japan, 26-28 January 2011 (nanoPHYS'11) was organized by the Physics G-COE project of the Tokyo Institute of Technology to provide an international forum for the open exchange of topical information and for stimulating discussion on novel concepts and future prospects of nanoscience and quantum physics. There were a total of 118 papers including 34 invited papers. This nanoPHYS'11 is the fourth symposium of this kind organized by the Tokyo Institute of Technology. Topics focused on in the symposium included: Category 1: Novel nanostructure (Nanowires, Nanotubes, Spin-related structure, etc) Category 2: Novel transport and electronic properties (Graphene, Topological insulators, Coherent control, etc) Category 3: Electronic and optical properties of nanostructure Category 4: Fundamental physics and new concept in quantum physics Category 5: Quantum Physics - Quantum information Category 6: Quantum Physics - Nuclear and Hadron Physics Category 7: Quantum Physics - Astrophysics, etc All the papers submitted to this issue have been reviewed under a stringent refereeing process, according to the normal rules of this Journal. The editors are grateful to all the

  9. PyDecay/GraphPhys: A Unified Language and Storage System for Particle Decay Process Descriptions

    Dunietz, Jesse N.; /MIT /SLAC


    To ease the tasks of Monte Carlo (MC) simulation and event reconstruction (i.e. inferring particle-decay events from experimental data) for long-term BaBar data preservation and analysis, the following software components have been designed: a language ('GraphPhys') for specifying decay processes, common to both simulation and data analysis, allowing arbitrary parameters on particles, decays, and entire processes; an automated visualization tool to show graphically what decays have been specified; and a searchable database storage mechanism for decay specifications. Unlike HepML, a proposed XML standard for HEP metadata, the specification language is designed not for data interchange between computer systems, but rather for direct manipulation by human beings as well as computers. The components are interoperable: the information parsed from files in the specification language can easily be rendered as an image by the visualization package, and conversion between decay representations was implemented. Several proof-of-concept command-line tools were built based on this framework. Applications include building easier and more efficient interfaces to existing analysis tools for current projects (e.g. BaBar/BESII), providing a framework for analyses in future experimental settings (e.g. LHC/SuperB), and outreach programs that involve giving students access to BaBar data and analysis tools to give them a hands-on feel for scientific analysis.

  10. The PhysTEC project: A perspective on what it takes to recruit and educate more physics teachers

    Plisch, Monica


    The PhysTEC project has more than doubled the number of physics teachers educated at supported sites. These institutions were selected for their potential to implement change primarily in physics departments and build model teacher education programs. Key components of PhysTEC programs include active recruiting, early teaching experiences, pedagogical content knowledge, Learning Assistants, and induction and mentoring. Important structural elements include a program champion, a Teacher in Residence, assessment, collaboration, and institutional commitment. The PhysTEC project has supported about 20 institutions to date. In order to more fully address the national need for qualified physics teachers, the effort would need to be scaled up substantially. There is evidence of growing interest among physics departments in taking on this issue, and a national coalition committed to improving the education of future physics teachers has expanded to include more than 250 member institutions. The project is experimenting with targeted sites, funded at a lower level, to implement focused programs. In addition, PhysTEC is partnering with aligned efforts to magnify its impact. PhysTEC is a project led by APS with AAPT, and supported by the NSF and the APS Campaign for the 21st Century.

  11. PhysTrack’: a Matlab based environment for video tracking of kinematics in the physics laboratory

    Umar Hassan, Muhammad; Sabieh Anwar, Muhammad


    In the past two decades, several computer software tools have been developed to investigate the motion of moving bodies in physics laboratories. In this article we report a Matlab based video tracking library, PhysTrack, primarily designed to investigate kinematics. We compare PhysTrack with other commonly available video tracking tools and outline its salient features. The general methodology of the whole video tracking process is described with a step by step explanation of several functionalities. Furthermore, results of some real physics experiments are also provided to demonstrate the working of the automated video tracking, data extraction, data analysis and presentation tools that come with this development environment. We believe that PhysTrack will be valuable for the large community of physics teachers and students already employing Matlab.

  12. Comments on Phys. Rev. D89 (2014) 097101 "Reevaluation of the parton distribution of strange quarks in the nucleon"

    Stolarski, M


    The HERMES collaboration in Phys. Rev. D89 (2014) 097101 extracted information about the strange quark density in the nucleon. One of the main results is an observation that the shape of the extracted density is very different from the shapes of the strange quark density from global QCD fits and also from that of the light antiquarks. In this paper systematic studies on the HERMES published multiplicity of pion and kaon data are presented. It is shown that the conclusions concerning the strange quark distribution in the nucleon reached in Phys. Rev. D89 (2014) 097101 are at the moment premature.

  13. Comment on “Temperature dependence of atomic vibrations in mono-layer graphene” [J. Appl. Phys. 118, 074302 (2015)

    Susi, T., E-mail:; Kotakoski, J. [Faculty of Physics, University of Vienna, Boltzmanngasse 5, 1090 Vienna (Austria)


    In an interesting recent study [Allen et al., J. Appl. Phys. 118, 074302 (2015)] (see also their Erratum [Allen et al., J. Appl. Phys. 118, 159902 (2015)]), Allen and co-workers measured the mean square amplitudes of graphene lattice vibrations between 100 and 1300 K and used a simplified theoretical approximation for the acoustic phonon modes to evaluate the maximum phonon wavelengths supported by the lattice. By fitting their data using the smallest wave-vector as the fitting parameter, they found this to be significantly smaller than the physical size of the graphene crystallites.

  14. Comment on "Soret motion in non-ionic binary molecular mixtures" [J. Chem. Phys. 135, 054102 (2011)].

    Semenov, Semen N; Schimpf, Martin E


    The material transport equations derived in the article by Leroyer and Würger [J. Chem. Phys. 135, 054102 (2011)] do not adequately provide a description of material transport in liquid binary systems. An alternate approach based on non-equilibrium thermodynamics is presented.

  15. Comment on "Structure and properties of reduced LaCoO3" [J. Appl. Phys. 44, 5553 (1973)

    Zhang, A. M.


    A hexagonal crystal lattice with the perovskite structure can be treated as rhombohedral or pseudocubic structure. The publication by Sis and Wirtz [J. Appl. Phys. 44, 5553 (1973)] presented a schematic diagram to explain these relationships, but made a mistake in the hexagonal lattice, which is corrected here.

  16. Reply Comments on Phys. Rev. D89, 097101 (2014) "Reevaluation of the parton distribution of strange quarks in the nucleon"

    Aschenauer, E C; Joosten, S; Rith, K; Schnell, G; Van Hulse, C


    In the "Comments on Phys. Rev. D89, 097101 (2014)", the Author presents a number of studies to conjecture that the analysis by the HERMES Collaboration presented in Phys. Rev. D89, 097101 (2014) likely suffers from effects that invalidate the leading-order analysis used in that publication. In our opinion, the Author has drawn erroneous conclusions. We present below a discussion of his arguments and the results from a repetition of that analysis using a range of parton distribution sets. The spread in those results precludes credible conclusions and demonstrates the sensitivity of the analysis to poorly known input data (unfavored FFs, strange-quark distributions, and mixed singlet and nonsinglet quantities).

  18. Comments on ``Lightning return stroke. A numerical calculation of the optical radiation'' [Phys. Fluids 29, 2736 (1986)

    Hill, R. D.


    It is noted that the energy computed by Paxton et al. [Phys. Fluids 29, 2736 (1986)] for the dissipation in unit length of a typical lightning channel is much less than a widely quoted experimental value, and also less than an earlier computed value. A further comment on the work of Paxton et al. that a large fraction of energy is ``radiated away,'' is also made.

  19. Discussion of “Geomechanical modeling of the nucleation process of Australia's 1989 M5.6 Newcastle earthquake” by C.D. Klose [Earth Planet. Sci. Lett. 256 (2007) 547 553

    Quinn, C. D.; Glen, R. A.; Diessel, C. F. K.


    On the basis of a numerical simulation, Klose [Earth Planet. Sci. Lett. 256: 547-553 (2007)] proposed that the MW = 5.2-5.6 earthquake that nucleated beneath Newcastle (New South Wales, Australia) at 10.30 AM December 28, 1989 (AEST), was the result of 200yr of coal mining in the region. We argue here that Klose's [Earth Planet. Sci. Lett. 256: 547-553 (2007)] ultimate conclusion is not supported by his own model or by available geological and seismic data. In particular, the 1989 Newcastle earthquake was not anomalous with respect to regional seismic activity.

  20. Comments on Letter (Phys. Rev. L, Vol.89, No. 10,2002) by D. Shapira and M. Saltmarsh

    Taleyarkhan, Rusi P; Cho, JaeSeon; Lahey, Richard T; Nigmatulin, Robert I; Block, Robert C


    This article focuses on correcting several factual errors and critiques in the previously published Letter in Phys. Rev. L, Vol. 89, No. 10, 2022, by D. Shapira and M. Saltmarsh. The authors of the Letter did not perform their own "independent" experiments as claimed; they did not perform control experiments with normal acetone; and, neither did they monitor for tritium. It their Letter, the authors (D. Shapira and M. Saltmarsh) failed to disclose that the data they collected actually confirmed our claims of having observed statistically significant nuclear emissions in chilled, cavitated deuterated acetone.

  1. Comment on "Propagation of surface waves on a semi-bounded quantum magnetized collisional plasma" [Phys. Plasmas 20, 122106 (2013)

    Moradi, Afshin


    In a recent article [Niknam et al., Phys. Plasmas 20, 122106 (2013)], Niknam et al. investigated the propagation of TM surface waves on a semi-bounded quantum magnetized collisional plasma in the Faraday configuration (in this case, the magnetic field is parallel to the both of the plasma surface and direction of propagation). Here, we present a fresh look at the problem and show that TM surface waves cannot propagate on surface of the present system. We find in the Faraday configuration the surface waves acquire both TM and TE components due to the cyclotron motion of electrons. Therefore, the main result of the work by Niknam et al. is incorrect.

  2. Comment on "Surface electromagnetic wave equations in a warm magnetized quantum plasma" [Phys. Plasmas 21, 072114 (2014)

    Moradi, Afshin


    In a recent article [C. Li et al., Phys. Plasmas 21, 072114 (2014)], Li et al. studied the propagation of surface waves on a magnetized quantum plasma half-space in the Voigt configuration (in this case, the magnetic field is parallel to the surface but is perpendicular to the direction of propagation). Here, we present a fresh look at the problem and obtain a new form of dispersion relation of surface waves of the system. We find that our new dispersion relation does not agree with the result obtained by Li et al.

  3. Comment on “On the quantum theory of molecules” [J. Chem. Phys. 137, 22A544 (2012)

    Sutcliffe, Brian T., E-mail: [Service de Chimie quantique et Photophysique, Université Libre de Bruxelles, B-1050 Bruxelles (Belgium); Woolley, R. Guy [School of Science and Technology, Nottingham Trent University, Nottingham NG11 8NS (United Kingdom)


    In our previous paper [B. T. Sutcliffe and R. G. Woolley, J. Chem. Phys. 137, 22A544 (2012)] we argued that the Born-Oppenheimer approximation could not be based on an exact transformation of the molecular Schrödinger equation. In this Comment we suggest that the fundamental reason for the approximate nature of the Born-Oppenheimer model is the lack of a complete set of functions for the electronic space, and the need to describe the continuous spectrum using spectral projection.

  4. Comment on "The physics origin of the hierarchy of bodies in space" [J. Appl. Phys. 119, 094901 (2016)

    Swartz, C. H.


    A recent paper [A. Bejan and R. W. Wagstaff, J. Appl. Phys. 119, 094901 (2016)] concludes that bodies of the same size suspended uniformly in space are in a state of high internal tension. The tension is then relieved by rearrangement of the bodies into a non-uniform distribution of mass. In this Comment, it is shown that the conclusions are based upon calculations which are in error, and that the amount of tension is not in fact decreased by such a rearrangement.

  6. Response to "Comment on ‘Electric Multipole Moments for Some First-Row Diatomic Hydride Molecules' [Commun. Theor. Phys. 38 (2002) 256]"

    Metin Orbay; Telhat Ozdogan


    The comment of Guseinov is irrelevant and also unjust. In contrast to his comment, we show that theobtained electric multipole moment values for some first-row diatomic molecules are original and better than his values(I.I. Guseinov, E. Akin, and A.M. Rzaeva, J. Mol. Struct. (Theochem) 453 (1998) 163) with respect to Hartree-Fockvalues. Moreover, it must be noted that all the formulas are cited in our paper (M. Orbay and T. Ozdogan, Commun.Theor.

    We call attention to the misconstructions in a paper recently published in this journal [A. Chenaghlou and O. Faizy, J. Math. Phys. 48, 112106 (2007)]. It is shown that the constructed Barut-Girardello coherent states are problematic from the view points of the definition and the measure. The claimed coherencies for the Kravchuk functions cannot actually exist.

    The abstract results and applications presented in "Controllability of fractional neutral stochastic functional differential systems, Z. Angew. Math. Phys. 65 (2014), no. 5, 941-959, are not correct. Moreover, the class of differential control problems studied in [1] is not H-controllable.

  11. On the theory of MHD modes driven by strong ExB velocity shear in tokamaks. Addendum. 2000 Plasma Phys. Control. Fusion 42 57

    Mikhailovskii, A.B.; Sharapov, S.E.; Timofeev, A.V. [JET Joint Undertaking, Abingdon, Oxfordshire OX14 3EA (United Kingdom)


    The theory of MHD modes driven by strong ExB velocity shear in tokamaks given by Mikhailovskii and Sharapov (2000 Plasma Phys. Control. Fusion 42 57) is revised. It is suggested that, in the approximations taken by these authors, there are no MHD eigenmodes if the cross-field velocity shear is larger then the Alfven frequency shear. (author)

  12. iNR-PhysChem: a sequence-based predictor for identifying nuclear receptors and their subfamilies via physical-chemical property matrix.

    Xuan Xiao

    Full Text Available Nuclear receptors (NRs form a family of ligand-activated transcription factors that regulate a wide variety of biological processes, such as homeostasis, reproduction, development, and metabolism. Human genome contains 48 genes encoding NRs. These receptors have become one of the most important targets for therapeutic drug development. According to their different action mechanisms or functions, NRs have been classified into seven subfamilies. With the avalanche of protein sequences generated in the postgenomic age, we are facing the following challenging problems. Given an uncharacterized protein sequence, how can we identify whether it is a nuclear receptor? If it is, what subfamily it belongs to? To address these problems, we developed a predictor called iNR-PhysChem in which the protein samples were expressed by a novel mode of pseudo amino acid composition (PseAAC whose components were derived from a physical-chemical matrix via a series of auto-covariance and cross-covariance transformations. It was observed that the overall success rate achieved by iNR-PhysChem was over 98% in identifying NRs or non-NRs, and over 92% in identifying NRs among the following seven subfamilies: NR1--thyroid hormone like, NR2--HNF4-like, NR3--estrogen like, NR4--nerve growth factor IB-like, NR5--fushi tarazu-F1 like, NR6--germ cell nuclear factor like, and NR0--knirps like. These rates were derived by the jackknife tests on a stringent benchmark dataset in which none of protein sequences included has ≥60% pairwise sequence identity to any other in a same subset. As a user-friendly web-server, iNR-PhysChem is freely accessible to the public at either or Also a step-by-step guide is provided on how to use the web-server to get the desired results without the need to follow the complicated mathematics involved in developing the predictor. It is anticipated that iNR-PhysChem may

    W. W. Lee, and R. A. Kolesnikov


    We show in this Response that the nonlinear Poisson's equation in our original paper derived from the drift kinetic approach can be verified by using the nonlinear gyrokinetic Poisson's equation of Dubin et al. [Phys. Fluids 26, 3524 (1983)]. This nonlinear contribution in φ2 is indeed of the order of k4⊥ in the long wavelength limit and remains finite for zero ion temperature, in contrast to the nonlinear term by Parra and Catto [Plasma Phys. Control. Fusion 50, 065014 (2008)], which is of the order of k2⊥ and diverges for Ti → 0. For comparison, the leading term for the gyrokinetic Poisson's equation in this limit is of the order of k2⊥φ,

[Department of Chemical and Materials Engineering, Faculty of Engineering, King Abdulaziz University, Jeddah (Saudi Arabia); Department of Mathematics and Computer Sciences, Cankaya University, Ankara (Turkey); Institute of Space Sciences, Magurele-Bucharest (Romania)


    In a recent paper, Jaradat et al. [J. Math. Phys. 53, 033505 (2012)] have presented the fractional form of the electromagnetic Lagrangian density within the Riemann-Liouville fractional derivative. They claimed that the Agrawal procedure [O. P. Agrawal, J. Math. Anal. Appl. 272, 368 (2002)] is used to obtain Maxwell's equations in the fractional form, and the Hamilton's equations of motion together with the conserved quantities obtained from fractional Noether's theorem are reported. In this comment, we draw the attention that there are some serious steps of the procedure used in their work are not applicable even though their final results are correct. Their work should have been done based on a formulation as reported by Baleanu and Muslih [Phys. Scr. 72, 119 (2005)].

    Paliathanasis, Andronikos; Tsamparlis, Michael


    We show that the recent results of \\ [Int. J. Mod. Phys. D 25 (2016) 1650051] on the application of Lie/Noether symmetries in scalar field cosmology are well-known in the literature while the problem could have been solved easily under a coordinate transformation. That follows from the property, that the admitted group of invariant transformations of dynamical system is independent on the coordinate system.

    In the paper commented on [J. Chem. Phys. 130 (2009) 144102], Cheng et al. derived a formula for the magnetic dipole shielding constant $\\sigma$ for the Dirac one-electron atom in its ground state. That formula involves an infinite series of ratios of the Euler's gamma functions. We show that with some algebra the series may be expressed in terms of elementary functions. This leads to a simple closed-form expression for the shielding constant.

    Dash, G. N.


    The avalanche noise behavior of impact avalanche transit-time (IMPATT) diodes has been modeled by Reklaitis and Reggiani [J. Appl. Phys. 97, 043709 (2005)]. They have obtained general agreement of their results with those of McIntyre [IEEE Trans. Electron Devices ED-13, 164 (1966)]. However, McIntyre's theory predicts the opposite noise behavior from that observed in the IMPATT diode. Hence the applicability of the noise model of Reklaitis and Reggiani to IMPATT diode is questionable.

    Zobnin et al. have published a paper [Phys. Plasmas, 21, 113503 (2014)] on a topic of discharge physics in the presence of a sharp change in cylindrical discharge geometry. In the comment it is pointed out that for untrapped electrons a full kinetic equation, which includes dependences on spatial coordinates and energies, has to be used for the electron velocity distribution function determination. It is also unclear what probe theories Zobnin et al. have used in their paper for the calculation of electron current to the discharge tube wall.

  1. Comment on “Competition between coherent emission and broadband spontaneous emission in the quantum free electron laser” [Phys. Plasmas 20, 033106 (2013)

    Petrillo, V.; Rossi, A. R.; Serafini, L. [Università di Milano-INFN, Via Celoria, 16 Milano (Italy)


    We point out that in the equation for the electron distribution evolution during Thomson/Compton or undulator radiation used in the paper: “Competition between coherent emission and broadband spontaneous emission in the quantum free electron laser” by G. R. M. Robb and R. Bonifacio [Phys. Plasmas 20, 033106 (2013)], the weight function should be the distribution of the number of emitted photons and not the photon energy distribution. Nevertheless, the considerations expressed in this comment do not alter the conclusions drawn in the paper in object.

    We comment on a fatal flaw in the analysis contained in the work of Martínez-y-Romero et al., [J. Math. Phys. 54, 053509 (2013)], which concerns the motion of a point particle in an inverse square potential, and show that most conclusions reached there are wrong. In particular, the manifestly senseless claim that, in the attractive potential case, no bounded orbits exist for negative energies, is traced to a sign error. Several more mistakes, both in the classical and the quantum cases, are pointed out.

[Department of Chemistry, Northwestern University, Evanston, Illinois 60208 (United States); Nitzan, Abraham [School of Chemistry, Tel Aviv University, Tel Aviv 69978 (Israel)


    We discuss the derivation of the optical response in molecular junctions presented by U. Harbola et al. [J. Chem. Phys. 141, 074107 (2014)], which questions some terms in the theory of Raman scattering in molecular junctions developed in our earlier publications. We show that the terms considered in our theory represent the correct contribution to calculated Raman scattering and are in fact identical to those considered by Harbola et al. We also indicate drawbacks of the presented approach in treating the quantum transport part of the problem.

  5. Comment on "Communication: Simple and accurate uniform electron gas correlation energy for the full range of densities" [J. Chem. Phys. 145, 021101 (2016)

    Karasiev, Valentin V


    A simple expression for the uniform electron gas (UEG) correlation energy, recently presented in Ref. [J. Chem. Phys. 145, 021101 (2016)], deviates from the reference quantum Monte-Carlo (QMC) data at large r_s. We propose to define one of the parameters from a requirement to match the large-rs QMC data. Functional with the new parameter provides much better agreement with the QMC data at large r_s without deterioration of the functional quality at small and intermediate r_s.

  6. Response to "Comment on 'Rethinking first-principles electron transport theories with projection operators: the problems caused by partitioning the basis set'" [J. Chem. Phys. 140, 177103 (2014)].

    Reuter, Matthew G; Harrison, Robert J


    The thesis of Brandbyge's comment [J. Chem. Phys. 140, 177103 (2014)] is that our operator decoupling condition is immaterial to transport theories, and it appeals to discussions of nonorthogonal basis sets in transport calculations in its arguments. We maintain that the operator condition is to be preferred over the usual matrix conditions and subsequently detail problems in the existing approaches. From this operator perspective, we conclude that nonorthogonal projectors cannot be used and that the projectors must be selected to satisfy the operator decoupling condition. Because these conclusions pertain to operators, the choice of basis set is not germane.

  7. Response to "Comment on 'A model for phosphate glass topology considering the modifying ion sub-network"' [J. Chem. Phys. 142, 107103 (2015)].

    Hermansen, Christian; Mauro, John C; Yue, Yuanzheng


    In our recent paper [C. Hermansen, J. C. Mauro, and Y.-Z. Yue, J. Chem. Phys. 140, 154501 (2014)], we applied temperature-dependent constraint theory to model the glass transition temperature (Tg) and liquid fragility index (m) of alkali phosphate glasses. Sidebottom commented on this paper concerning the m values obtained by differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) [D. L. Sidebottom, J. Chem. Phys. 142, ⬛ (2015)]. We have considered Sidebottom's comments carefully and conclude that the m values of phosphate liquids obtained by DSC are reliable, except for the NaPO3 and possibly P2O5 compositions. Based on his dynamic light scattering measurements, Sidebottom has found that P2O5 is a strong liquid with m ≈ 20. However, based on the heat capacity jump at Tg and the stretching exponent of the relaxation function, P2O5 should be classified as an intermediate fragile liquid with m ≈ 40. We also argue that m cannot be universally related to the average connectivity of the network and point out several inconsistencies with this view.

    A new system of poles for the Green's function for a dielectric-coated cylinder has been found. In general, these poles correspond to creeping waves, which are strongly attenuated except for very thick coatings. For radii below a critical value, one of the new poles replaces one of those previous...

  9. Comment on "High-pressure synthesis of orthorhombic SrIrO3 perovskite and its positive magnetoresistance" [J. Appl. Phys. 103, 103706 (2008)

    Puggioni, D.; Rondinelli, J. M.


    In their article, Zhao et al. report the synthesis of SrIrO3 at high temperature and high pressure [J. Appl. Phys. 103, 103706 (2008)]. Under these conditions, the crystal structure of SrIrO3 can be stabilized as an orthorhombic perovskite with space group Pnma. They refine the lattice parameters and list the Wyckoff orbits and atomic coordinates. We believe that Zhao and coworkers made an unintentional error in reporting the crystal structure, which may adversely affect the description of the electronic structure. Indeed, we show the reported structure does not define a standard perovskite with nearly rigid IrO6 octahedral tilts and rather exhibits a structural discrepancy with respect to the equilibrium structure obtained from density functional calculations.

  10. Comment on 'A close examination of the motion of an adiabatic piston' by Eric A. Gislason [Am. J. Phys. 78, 995-1001 (2010)

    de Abreu, Rodrigo


    A recent paper by Gislason published in Am. J. Phys. deals with the celebrated example of the so-called "adiabatic piston", a system involving two ideal gases contained in a horizontal cylinder and separated by an insulating piston that moves without friction. While the analysis presented in that paper is rather comprehensive, very interesting and useful as a teaching tool, it can be somewhat misleading if not taken within its appropriate context. As a matter of fact, the evolution to equilibrium involves two phases, a faster one leading to the equalization of pressures, and a slower one bringing the system to identical temperatures. Although Gislason addresses only the first process, we note that the final state after the second phase, the evolution to equal temperatures once the pressures are the same, is described by thermodynamics. Therefore, the discussion of the adiabatic piston given by Gislason can and should be enriched, in order to promote a proper and general view of thermodynamics.

  11. Comment on 'The diatomic dication CuZn{sup 2+} in the gas phase' [J. Chem. Phys. 135, 034306 (2011)

[Departamento de Fisica Teorica, Universidad de Valladolid, E-47011 Valladolid (Spain)


    In this Comment, the density functional theory (DFT) calculations carried out by Diez et al. [J. Chem. Phys. 135, 034306 (2011)] are revised within the framework of the coupled-cluster single double triple method. These more sophisticated calculations allow us to show that the {sup 2}{Sigma}{sup +} electronic ground state of CuZn{sup 2+}, characterized as the metastable ground state by DFT calculations, is a repulsive state instead. The {sup 2}{Delta} and {sup 2}{Pi} metastable states of CuZn{sup 2+}, on the other hand, should be responsible for the formation mechanism of the dication through the near-resonant electron transfer CuZn{sup +}+ Ar{sup +}{yields} CuZn{sup 2+}+ Ar reaction.

  12. Comment on ``Neutrino oscillations in the early universe: how can large lepton asymmetry be generated?'' [Astropart. Phys. 14 (2000) 79-90

    Di Bari, P.; Foot, R.; Volkas, R. R.; Wong, Y. Y. Y.


    We comment on the recent paper by A.D. Dolgov, S.H. Hansen, S. Pastor and D.V. Semikoz (DHPS) [Astropart. Phys. 14 (2000) 79] on the generation of neutrino asymmetries from active-sterile neutrino oscillations. We demonstrate that the approximate asymmetry evolution equation obtained therein is an expansion, up to a minor discrepancy, of the well-established static approximation equation, valid only when the supposedly new higher order correction term is small. In the regime where this so-called "back-reaction" term is large and artificially terminates the asymmetry growth, their evolution equation ceases to be a faithful approximation to the quantum kinetic equations simply because pure Mikheyev-Smirnov-Wolfenstein (MSW) transitions have been neglected. At low temperatures the MSW effect is the dominant asymmetry amplifier. Neither the static nor the DHPS approach contains this important physics. Therefore we conclude that the DHPS results have sufficient veracity at the onset of explosive asymmetry generation, but are invalid in the ensuing low temperature epoch where MSW conversions are able to enhance the asymmetry to values of order 0.2-0.37. DHPS do claim to find a significant final asymmetry for very large δm2 values. However, for this regime the effective potential they employed is not valid.

    Szmulowicz, F., E-mail: [University of Dayton Research Institute, 300 College Park Ave., Dayton, Ohio 45469-0072 (United States)


    The purpose of this comment is to point out that the paper by Safa, Asgari, and Faraone [J. Appl. Phys. 114, 053712 (2013)] (SAF) on electronic transport in superlattices contains a number of errors in physics and execution. By dealing with a finite number of periods and forcing the wave function to be zero at the upper and lower boundaries of the superlattice stack, SAF have turned the system into a quantum well for which the momentum along the growth axis is not a good quantum number, so that the bands in the growth direction are flat and the corresponding carrier velocities and vertical mobilities are zero. A number of other errors allow the authors to get nonzero results and to reach conclusions that qualitatively mirror those of Szmulowicz, Haugan, Elhamri, and Brown [Phys. Rev. B 84, 155307 (2011)].

    In their article (Fundamental flows with nonlinear slip conditions: exact solutions, R. Ellahi, T. Hayat, F. M. Mahomed and A. Zeeshan, Z. Angew. Math. Phys. 61 (2010) 877-888.), the authors considered three simple cases of the steady flow of a third grade fluid between parallel plates with slip conditions; namely, Couette flow, Poiseuille flow, and generalized Couette flow. They obtained exact solutions, which were utilized in a way that did not lead to useful results. Their conclusion that the Couette flow cannot be obtained from the generalized Couette flow, by dropping the pressure gradient, is incorrect. Meaningful results based on their solution are herein presented.

    Weniger, Ernst Joachim


    In the years from 2001 to 2006, Guseinov and his coworkers published 40 articles on the derivation and application of one-range addition theorems. In E. J.

Vol. 309 (2005), pp. 209 - 213), arXiv:0704.1088v2 [math-ph], it was argued that Guseinov's treatment of one-range addition theorems is at best questionable and in some cases fundamentally flawed. In I. I. Guseinov, Extended Rejoinder to "Extended Comment on "One-Range Addition Theorems for Coulomb Interaction Potential and Its Derivatives'' by I. I. Guseinov (Chem.

To clarify the situation, the most serious mathematical flaws in Guseinov's treatment of one-range addition theorems are discussed in more depth.

  2. ATLAS note ATL-COM-PHYS-2009.

    Chekanov, S.; Boomsma, J.; High Energy Physics


    The program InvMass has been developed to perform a general model-independent search for new particles using the ATLAS detector at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), a proton-proton collider at CERN. The search is performed by examining statistically significant variations from the Standard Model predictions in exclusive event classes classified according to the number of identified objects. The program, called InvMass, finds all relevant particle groups identified with the ATLAS detector and analyzes their production rates, invariant masses and the total transverse momenta. The generic code of InvMass can easily be adapted for any particle types identified with the ATLAS detector. Several benchmark tests are presented.

  3. Comments on "Including the effects of temperature-dependent opacities in the implicit Monte Carlo algorithm" by N.A. Gentile [J. Comput. Phys. 230 (2011) 5100-5114

    Ghosh, Karabi


    We briefly comment on a paper by N.A. Gentile [J. Comput. Phys. 230 (2011) 5100-5114] in which the Fleck factor has been modified to include the effects of temperature-dependent opacities in the implicit Monte Carlo algorithm developed by Fleck and Cummings [1,2]. Instead of the Fleck factor, f = 1 / (1 + βcΔtσP), the author derived the modified Fleck factor g = 1 / (1 + βcΔtσP - min [σP‧ (a Tr4 - aT4) cΔt/ρCV, 0 ]) to be used in the Implicit Monte Carlo (IMC) algorithm in order to obtain more accurate solutions with much larger time steps. Here β = 4 aT3 / ρCV, σP is the Planck opacity and the derivative of Planck opacity w.r.t. the material temperature is σP‧ = dσP / dT.

  4. Widespread inaccuracies in quantum plasma literature and a comment on article "Interaction of two solitary waves in quantum electron-positron-ion plasma" [Phys. Plasmas \\textbf{18}, 052301 (2011)

    Akbari-Moghanjoughi, M


    Recently, Yan-Xia Xu, et al. in the article Ref. [Phys. Plasmas \\textbf{18}, 052301 (2011)] have studied the effects of various plasma parameters on interaction of two ion-acoustic solitary waves in an unmagnetized three-dimensional electron-positron-ion quantum plasma. They have used the extended reductive perturbation technique, the so-called, extended Poincare'-Lighthill-Kuo (PLK) technique, to deduce from the model governing the quantum hydrodynamics (QHD) differential equations leading to the soliton dynamical properties, namely, Korteweg-de Vries evolution equations (one for each wave) and coupled differential equations describing the phase-shift in trajectories of solitons due to the two dimensional collision. The variation of the calculated collision phase-shifts are then numerically inspected in terms of numerous plasma fractional parameters. In this comment we give some notes specific to the validity of the results of above-mentioned article and refer to important misconceptions about the use of the...

    We report calculations of energy levels and oscillator strengths for transitions in W XL, undertaken with the general-purpose relativistic atomic structure package ({\\sc grasp}) and flexible atomic code ({\\sc fac}). Comparisons are made with existing results and the accuracy of the data is assessed. Discrepancies with the most recent results of S. Aggarwal et al. [Can. J. Phys. {\\bf 91} (2013) 394] are up to 0.4 Ryd and up to two orders of magnitude for energy levels and oscillator strengths, respectively. Discrepancies for lifetimes are even larger, up to four orders of magnitude for some levels. Our energy levels are estimated to be accurate to better than 0.5% (i.e. 0.2 Ryd), whereas results for oscillator strengths and lifetimes should be accurate to better than 20%.

    We previously reported [Phys. Rev. D 82, 112008 (2010)] measurements of transverse single-spin asymmetries, A_N, in J/psi production from transversely polarized p+p collisions at sqrt(s)=200 GeV with data taken by the PHENIX experiment at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider in 2006 and 2008. Subsequently, we have found errors in the analysis procedures for the 2008 data, which resulted in an erroneous value for the extracted A_N. The errors affected the sorting of events into the correct left/right and forward/backward bins. This produced an incorrect value for the 2008 result, but the 2006 result is unaffected. We have conducted two independent reanalyses with these errors corrected, and we present here the corrected values for the 2008 data and the combined results for 2006 and 2008. The new combined spin asymmetry in the forward region is A_N = -0.026+/-0.026(stat)+/-0.003(sys). Since this asymmetry is consistent with zero, we no longer claim that our results suggest a possible non-zero trigluon correlatio...

  11. Comment on ''Transport Properties of Tl{sub 5}Te{sub 3} Single Crystals'' [phys. stat. sol. (a) Vol. 191, No. 1, 322-329 (2002)

    Cankurtaran, M.; Celik, H. [Hacettepe University, Faculty of Engineering, Department of Physics, Beytepe, 06800 Ankara (Turkey)


    Recently, Gamal et al. [phys. stat. sol. (a) 191, 322 (2002)] reported the results of electrical conductivity, Hall effect and thermoelectric power (TEP) measurements on Tl{sub 5}Te{sub 3} single crystals. The samples used in the study were p-type semiconductors. From the experimental data for the temperature dependence of TEP, Gamal et al. determined the values of 1.6 x 10{sup -41} kg and 1.5 x 10{sup -40} kg, respectively, for the effective masses of electrons and holes in p-type Tl{sub 5}Te{sub 3}, which are about ten orders of magnitude smaller than the free electron mass, 9.11 x 10{sup -31} kg. We argue that the anomalously small values obtained for the effective mass of charge carriers in Tl{sub 5}Te{sub 3} have no physical significance. (copyright 2007 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH and Co.

    A method for solving the Byzantine generals problem [M. Fitzi, N. Gisin, and U. Maurer, Phys. Rev. Lett. 87, 217901 (2001)] and the liar detection problem [A. Cabello, Phys. Rev.

    Using our recently developed relativistic three-particle quantization condition [Phys. Rev. D 90, 116003 (2014), 10.1103/PhysRevD.90.116003; Phys. Rev. D 92, 114509 (2015), 10.1103/PhysRevD.92.114509], we study the finite-volume energy shift of a spin-zero three-particle bound state. We reproduce the result obtained using nonrelativistic quantum mechanics by Meißner et al. in [Phys. Rev. Lett. 114, 091602 (2015), 10.1103/PhysRevLett.114.091602] and generalize the result to a moving frame.

    This special issue contains a selection of papers that were presented at a symposium on Interfacial Processes and Properties of Advanced Materials (IPAM05) held at the E-MRS Fall Meeting, Warsaw, Poland on 5-7 September 2005. The symposium was conceived and inspired by the success of its predecessor (IPAM04) held at the University of Caen, France in June 2004.The symposium attracted over sixty contributions and was organized around five areas: Interfaces and dislocations in compound semiconductors, Gate oxide interfaces, Interfaces and defects in electroceramics, Metal-metal interfaces and interfacial modeling, and Interfaces in nano-structured and amorphous thin-film systems. The focus was on the influence of buried interfaces on the functionality of various electronic and opto-electronic devices such as lasers, ferroelectric memories, CMOS and magnetic disks. Therefore the materials addressed at the symposium included compound semiconductors (e.g. GaN, CdTe, ZnO), perovskites (e.g. SrTiO3), dielectrics (e.g. HfO2, SiO2, Al2O3), and metals (e.g. Fe/V superlattices). The aim of the symposium was to bring together leading interface experts, both experimental and theoretical, to explore the connection between interfacial properties (atomic and electronic structure, segregation, diffusion, kinetics) and materials performance in a device application. Papers were presented that described the use of a variety of sophisticated experimental techniques to explore the interfacial properties including HRTEM, X-ray high-resolution diffraction, Raman spectroscopy, STM, AFM, PL spectroscopy, SIMS and electrical and magnetic measurements. The theoretical work included applications of density functional theory, atomistic simulations, dislocation theory and finite element modeling. The program stimulated many exciting and productive discussions between experimentalists and theorists. The ultimate objective was to improve our knowledge of the role of interfaces on the properties of current and emerging device materials. It is hoped that these proceedings represent a step towards that goal and will encourage further conferences in this area in the future.The organisers gratefully acknowledge funding from the US Office of Naval Research Global (ONRG) Conference Support Program. They also would like to thank E-MRS for their administrative support and the Institute of Physics, Polish Academy of Sciences and the Warsaw University of Technology for hosting the symposium.

    The XVII Latin American Symposium on Solid State Physics took place in the conference rooms of the Convent San Francisco de Asis, in the heart of the Old Havana. The sixteen previous editions were organized in eight different countries; the last two were in Colombia (Cartagena, 1999) and Venezuela (Merida, 2002). After eighteen years the meeting came back to Havana in 2004.The program topics included: Surfaces and interfaces analysis; Spintronics; Magnetism; Materials and energy; Ab-initio methods, simulations and modeling in solids; Nanophysics, nanomaterials and nanotechnology; New materials, properties and applications; Preparation of materials, thin films and characterization; High temperature superconductivity; Techniques of structural analysis in solids. The program included 6 plenary talks, 13 invited talks, 58 oral presentations (in eight sessions) and 200 poster contributions (in four poster sessions).The meeting attracted more than 200 participants from 14 countries. The physica status solidi Young Researcher Award sponsored by Wiley-VCH was conferred at the meeting. This prize was divided between two participants: Clara Calderón (Study of electrical transport properties of ZnO thin films used as front contact of solar cells) from Colombia and Aim?? Pelaiz Barranco (AC behavior in lanthanum modified PZT ferroelectric ceramics) from Cuba. Special Mentions went to Val??rie Halté (Femtosec-ond dynamics of transmission of gold arrays of sub-wavelength holes) from France, Erick Larramendi Cancio (Cd desorption induced by Zn exposure during atomic layer epitaxy of CdxZn1-xTe) and Julio Cesar Rimada Herrera (Quantum and conversion efficiency calculation of AlGaAs/GaAs multiple quantum well solar cells) from Cuba.Nanostructures and in general low dimensional physics related to different systems was a very hot topic during the meeting. Some talks and presentations were devoted to optoelectronic materials and devices. Characterization of solids by different structural and optical techniques together with modeling and simulations were also important subjects of the symposium.The XVIII Symposium will be held in Mexico in 2006.The editors wish to thank all the participants who contributed to the success of the meeting and hope that it helped to develop close links between researchers and institutions of Latin America.

    Between 20 and 24 June 2005 the Centre Européen de Calcul Atomique et Moléculaire - or CECAM, as it is more widely known - hosted a workshop entitled State-of-the-art, developments and perspectives of real-space electronic structure methods in condensed-matter and chemical physics, organized with the support of CECAM itself and the ?k network. The workshop was attended by some forty participants coming from fifteen countries, and about thirty presentations were given. The workshop provided a lively forum for the discussion of recent methodological developments in electronic structure calculations, ranging from linear-scaling methods, mesh techniques, time-dependent density functional methods, and a long etcetera, which had been our ultimate objective when undertaking its organization.The first-principles simulation of solids, liquids and complex matter in general has jumped in the last few years from the relatively confined niches in condensed matter and materials physics and in quantum chemistry, to cover most of the sciences, including nano, bio, geo, environmental sciences and engineering. This effect has been propitiated by the ability of simulation techniques to deal with an ever larger degree of complexity. Although this is partially to be attributed to the steady increase in computer power, the main factor behind this change has been the coming of age of the main theoretical framework for most of the simulations performed today, together with an extremely active development of the basic algorithms for its computer implementation. It is this latter aspect that is the topic of this special issue of physica status solidi.There is a relentless effort in the scientific community seeking to achieve not only higher accuracy, but also more efficient, cost-effective and if possible simpler computational methods in electronic structure calculations [1]. From the early 1990s onwards there has been a keen interest in the computational condensed matter and chemical physics communities in methods that had the potential to overcome the unfavourable scaling of the computational cost with the system size, implicit in the momentum-space formalism familiar to solid-state physicists and the quantum chemistry approaches more common in chemical physics and physical chemistry. This interest was sparkled by the famous paper in which Weitao Yang [2] introduced the Divide and Conquer method. Soon afterwards several practical schemes aiming to achieve linear-scaling calculations, by exploiting what Walter Kohn called most aptly the near-sightedness of quantum mechanics [3], were proposed and explored (for a review on linear-scaling methods, see [4]). This search for novel, more efficient and better scaling algorithms proved to be fruitful in more than one way. Not only was it the start of several packages which are well-known today (such as Siesta, Conquest, etc.), but it also leads to new ways of representing electronic states and orbitals, such as grids [5, 6], wavelets [7], finite elements, etc. Also, the drive to exploit near-sightedness attracted computational solid state physicists to the type of atomic-like basis functions traditionally used in the quantum chemistry community. At the same time computational chemists learnt about plane waves and density functional theory, and thus a fruitful dialogue was started between two communities that hitherto had not had much contact.Another interesting development that has begun to take place over the last decade or so is the convergence of several branches of science, notably physics, chemistry and biology, at the nanoscale. Experimentalists in all these different fields are now performing highly sophisticated measurements on systems of nanometer size, the kind of systems that us theoreticians can address with our computational methods, and this convergence of experiment and theory at this scale has also been very fruitful, particularly in the fields of electronic transport and STM image simulation. It is now quite common to find papers at the cutting edge of nanoscience and nanotechnology co-authored by experimentalists and theorists, and it can only be expected that this fruitful interplay between theory and experiment will increase in the future.It was considerations such as these that moved us to propose to CECAM and ?k the celebration of a workshop devoted to the discussion of recent developments in electronic structure techniques, a proposal that was enthusiastically received, not just by CECAM and ?k, but also by our invited speakers and participants. Interest in novel electronic structure methods is now as high as ever, and we are therefore very happy that physica status solidi has given us the opportunity to devote a special issue to the topics covered in the workshop. This special issue of physica status solidi gathers invited contributions from several attendants to the workshop, contributions that are representative of the range of topics and issues discussed then, including progress in linear scaling methods, electronic transport, simulation of STM images, time-dependent DFT methods, etc. It rests for us to thank all the contributors to this special issue for their efforts, CECAM and ?k for funding the workshop, physica status solidi for agreeing to devote this special issue to the workshop, and last but not least Emmanuelle and Emilie, the CECAM secretaries, for their invaluable practical help in putting this workshop together

    This issue of physica status solidi (a) contains the majority of papers presented at the 2nd Sino-German Symposium The Silicon Age which was held at the Lindner Hotel Cottbus, Germany, 19-24 September 2005. This meeting followed the 1st Symposium Progress in Silicon Materials held in June 2002 in Hangzhou, P.R. China. 8 Chinese and 14 German scientists from universities, research institutes and industry were invited to present their views about different aspects of silicon.There was a continuous progress in silicon materials development during the last 40-50 years, driven by the need of the IC industry for better and larger monocrystalline silicon wafers. Moreover, low-cost crystalline silicon now dominates the world's production of solar cells in the photovoltaics industry. Furthermore, there are intensive research activities worldwide for on-chip integration of Si-based photonics in CMOS technology. In addition, new areas being connected with silicon are starting to appear, namely Si-based biochips and nanoelectronics. Silicon, one can reasonably argue, is already the most investigated of all materials. However, there is still a need for continuation of research and development regarding numerous aspects of Si and also SiGe, including related technologies, advanced diagnostics or the role of crystal defects, which are the working fields of many laboratories all over the world. This was also shown by the presentations at the symposium and can be found in the contributions contained in this issue.The organizers would like to thank the participants for their high level contributions and discussions during the symposium. This intensive and open communication allowed the participants to create synergies between the different fields of silicon research and also to build up relationships for cooperation between Chinese and German research groups.Finally, we would like to thank the Sino-German Science Center for the financial support of the symposium.

    We have recently observed a growing interest in using the powerful technique of optical modulation spectroscopy. These applications are related mostly to the characterization of low dimensional semiconductor structures and devices based on them.The International Workshop on Modulation Spectroscopy of Semiconductor Structures (MS3) at the beginning of July 2004 gathered in Wrocaw (in the southwest part of Poland) almost 40 participants, half of them from abroad. The 8 invited and 16 contributed talks were presented by the leaders of research teams from the USA, Japan, Taiwan, Canada, Germany, France, the Netherlands, Sweden, Ireland, Russia, Lithuania and Poland. Part of the MS3 workshop was held at the Laboratory of Advanced Optical Spectroscopy, Institute of Physics, Wrocaw University of Technology, where discussions on technical matter of the modulation spectroscopy were carried out in a relaxing atmosphere over a cup of coffee.The topics of the MS3 workshop included: advantages of photoreflectance, electroreflectance, contactless electroreflectance, thermoreflectance, differential reflectance and wavelength-modulated surface photovoltage spectroscopy. The applications of the above methods to investigate transistor, diode and laser structures including VCSELs, low dimensional structures of both wings of the spectrum, i.e. wide band gap materials like GaN, AlGaN, ZnO and low band gap materials such as GaInN(Sb)As, InAs, InSb, and FeSi2 were demonstrated.It is our great pleasure to publish the most interesting of the MS3 workshop presentations in this issue of physica status solidi (a).The organizers acknowledge Wrocaw University of Technology, the Center of Exellence CEPHONA from the Institute of Electron Technology in Warsaw and the Polish Committee for Scientific Research for financial support of the workshop.

    The present issue of physica status solidi (a) contains a collection of 24 papers presented at the 9th International Workshop on Surface and Bulk Defects in CVD Diamond Films held in Diepen- beek-Hasselt, Belgium, 18-20 February 2004. The concept of this workshop originated in 1996 with the idea of bringing together scientists who are active and innovative in the field of electronic and optical properties of thin film diamond. Since then, this meeting have grown up to a regular conference devoted to new issues in CVD diamond research and related to diamond as a material for electronics and nanobioelectronics. This year the programme was spread over two and a half days, including 8 invited lectures from a total of 39 talks, and a poster session featuring 15 posters. In addition we were able to connect this meeting with a workshop on Defects and Impurities in Crystalline Boron Nitride Compounds, scientifically organized from the University of Antwerp and leading finally to a joint meeting lasting four days. The papers from the BN workshop are joining this proceeding issue on pages 2559-2598.At SBDD IX, topics ranged from homo- and heteroepitaxial growth, doping, hydrogen induced surface conductivity, defects and their characterization, to devices including bio-sensing applications. As usual, very intense and lively discussions took place among participants, from young students to established scientists, after talks, during breaks and in the evenings while enjoying the hospitality of the Limburgs Universitair Centrum and especially the city of Hasselt. The number of participants reached a record breaking 96 this year, with participants coming from fifteen different countries (Australia, Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Israel, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Romania, Russia, Sweden, UK, USA). This yearly increasing number indicates that this workshop is continuing to be very attractive to a large scientific community, as it summarizes the up-to-date research on diamond as a wide band gap semiconductor.The workshop would have not been possible without the support of many people and institutions. For financial aid we are especially indebted to the Scientific Research Community Surface Modification of Materials of the F. W. O.-Vlaanderen (Belgium) and its continuous support since starting this workshop 9 years ago. We also thank the Limburgs Universitair Centrum for offering the lecture hall and infrastructure facilities. Finally we highly appreciate the active approach of the editorial staff of physica status solidi in this conference and would like to thank most notably Stefan Hildebrandt and Katharina Fröhlich, for their excellent and patient work, making this already the sixth successfully published proceedings of SBDD in pss (a).To finish, we would all like to invite you for the 10th anniversary of the SBDD series in February 2005 in Diepenbeek-Hasselt and we look forward to seeing you at:Surface and Bulk Defects in CVD Diamond Films, X23-25 February 2005Limburgs Universitair Centrum, Diepenbeek - Hasselt, Belgium

    The Fifth International Symposium on Blue Laser and Light Emitting Diodes (ISBLLED-2004) was held in Gyeongju, Korea from 15-19 March 2004. Gyeongju, the ancient capital of the thousand-year Silla kingdom (57 B.C. to 935 A.D.) provided additional pleasure to the participants as an exceptional open-air museum with antique treasures scattered all around the city.During the last decade we have witnessed remarkable developments in wide-gap semiconductors and light emitting devices in the spectral range from the visible to deep UV. The purpose of the Symposium was to provide a forum for intensive discussion on the issues and main progress especially in optoelectronic devices, material growth and characterization, and quantum structures of wide bandgap semiconductors. A total of 243 papers including 220 contributed and 23 invited ones were presented and discussed by 487 participants from 17 countries world-wide. Among them, 154 manuscripts were submitted and reviewed by the usual evaluation process of physica status solidi. Some were rejected or withdrawn, and finally 139 papers are published in the special issues of physica status solidi (a), (b), and (c). We gratefully acknowledge the referees for their careful review. The papers are grouped into 7 categories. The subheadings and the number of papers in each are as follows: Optoelectronic devices, 43; Growth and characterization, 45; Nano and quantum structures, 21; Contacts, 8; Zinc oxide, 9; Indium nitride and indium rich InGaN, 6; Others, 7. The special session of the Symposium, The LED Highlight, designed partially to meet the challenging targets of the technology, i.e., energy savings and clean environment preservation, drew much attention and is edited as a special coloured section in this issue.The next symposium is scheduled for Montpellier, France, in 2006. We wish the organizers of that symposium the best of luck and hope to see all of the ISBLLED-2004 participants again at ISBLLED-2006.ISBLLED-2004 was sponsored by The Research Society for the Wide-gap Semiconductors, Korean Physical Society, Office of Naval Research, Korea Science and Engineering Foundation, Korea Research Foundation, Korea Association for Photonics Industry Development, Asian Office of Aerospace Research and Development, and Korea Photonics Technology Institute.

    Physica status solidi was founded in 1961 by a number of eminent solid state physicists as an attempt to overcome the iron curtain, which then separated East and West, at least in the field of science. Since that time our world has changed quite a bit, and so have the boundary conditions of science publishing. However, one thing has not changed: then as now, the general policy and development of a respectable scientific journal should be determined by a board of independent scientists, who volunteer to assume responsibility for the scientific content of the journal, to assure a fair and critical peer review process for all submitted manuscripts, and, in cases of conflict, to finally decide which papers will be published and which will not.As a matter of fact, an international Board of Editors which consists of scientists coming from different countries and continents, with a good reputation in their respective community, and without any conflict of interest with the Publisher of the journal is, in my opinion, these days more important than ever. As our daily scientific work becomes increasingly specialized, but at the same time also increasingly interdisciplinary, we are more and more forced to trust the quality and reliability of published scientific results in the literature, without really having a chance to come to an independent opinion on our own. This is one of the reasons why the many recent cases of plagiarism, scientific misconduct, or outright fraud have caused such a high level of public awareness. It is quite clear that without a serious peer review there would be an even larger number of such cases in the literature, and that without the responsible action taken by concerned Journal Editors, many of the revealed cases probably would have remained under the carpet.It is, therefore, a particular pleasure for me to introduce to you on the following pages the current Editorial Board of physica status solidi (b) in the form of a brief curriculum vitae, a photograph, and an e-mail address (in case you want to contact our Editors directly!). Of course, since 1961 the Editorial Board of our journal has undergone many changes and will continue to do so, but we always have attempted to maintain a good balance between the different areas of solid state physics, between theory and experiment, and between different countries. And although nothing is perfect, I hope that you will find at least one or two board members, who are known to you through their contributions to the literature in solid state physics.For me, this is the perfect occasion to thank all Members of the Editorial Board, past and present, for their advice, continuing support, and dedication!

    The Third International Conference on Magnetic and Superconducting Materials (MSM03) belongs to a series of conferences, held biannually, aiming at providing a forum to the scientists in the magnetic and superconducting materials areas over the world.The first conference of the series (MSM99) was held in Iran with the proceedings published by World Scientific in 2000, and the second conference (MSM01) was held in Jordan with the proceedings published in Physica B 321 (2002).MSM03 was organized by the Materials Physics Laboratory, Sfax University (Laboratoire de Physique des Matériaux de la Faculté des Sciences de Sfax), with many domestic and international supporting institutions. It was held in Monastir (Tunisia), 1-4 September 2003, with over 150 participants and keynote lecturers attending from the following countries: Algeria, Austria, China, Czech Republic, Egypt, France, Germany, Hungary, Iran, Italy, Japan, Jordan, Morocco, Netherlands, Pakistan, Poland, Russia, Spain, Sudan, Sultanate of Oman, Taiwan, Tunisia, United Kingdom and United States of America.Altogether, about 170 papers on a variety of subjects relevant to the topic of the conference were presented, out of which 42 were keynote lectures. The submissions were peer-reviewed, and ultimately 115 articles were selected for publication in this journal. However, it must be noted that 13 of 39 keynote speakers did not submit their manuscripts for publication. Invited and other speakers were distinguished members of the international scientific community who are interested in pure sciences and materials research, and involved in the fabrication, characterization and investigation of the physical properties of magnetic and superconducting materials. High-caliber scientists attended the conference contributing to its success and the event resulted in new international relationships in research and cooperation. The Chairman of the Organizing Committee was Professor Abdelwaheb Cheikhrouhou, Materials Physics Laboratory, Sciences Faculty of Sfax (Tunisia) and the Co-Chairmen were Professor Sami Mahmood, Dean of Sciences at Yarmouk University (Jordan) and Professor Mohamed Akhavan from the Sharif University of Technology (Iran). The four-day conference consisted of several oral and poster sessions, followed by social programs in the evenings. The success of the event could be measured during the closing session on the last day, when several delegates emphasized the high-quality science that had been evident at the conference. A post conference three-day tour to the south of Tunisia (Matmata, Douz City: the gate of desert and the mountains oasis: Tamerza, Mides and Chebika) was also arranged. The conference was generously sponsored by: - The Tunisian Ministry of High Education, Scientific Research and Technology - The Tunisian Secretary of State for Scientific Research and Technology - The Tunisian National Office of Tourism - The Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP) - French Institute for Cooperation in Tunisia - Tunisian-Italian Scientific Partnership - British Gas - Tunisian Society for Electricity and Gas - Imex Olive Oil -Confiserie TRIKI Le Moulin The next MSM conference in 2005 will be held in Morocco.

    Modelling and Simulation in Molecular Systems, Mesoscopic Structures, and Material Science was the title of a workshop held at the University of Technology in Chemnitz from 21 to 23 April 2004. This workshop coincided with the 50th birthday of Michael Schreiber. Therefore, the idea to publish a special issue is supported by two good reasons. First, a topical collection is appropriate for giving an overview about a field and to initiate further studies. This is one intention of the present issue. Second, the birthday is a suitable occasion for reflecting on the status of the different fields where Michael Schreiber has been active himself. Motivated by the characteristic name of the workshop (MS4), which expresses the broad range of his activities, the contributions are grouped into three main chapters: Disorder and Interaction, Phase Transitions and Criticality, and Transport Properties.The first part starts with the currently intensively discussed topic of composite Fermions in the paper by B. Kramer et al. This method of rewriting correlations as new quasiparticles has amongst other things the merit of explaining such exciting phenomena as the fractional quantum Hall effect. The methodological questions of Ward identities, causality, and conservation laws are the focus of the systematic investiga-tion in the second article by V. Janis et al. which concentrates on the problem of disorder and configura-tional averaging. The interplay between disorder and correlation is treated in the third contribution by C. Schuster et al., where different theoretical methods are tested on the problem of Friedel oscillations within the one-dimensional Heisenberg and Hubbard model. In the next contribution, M. Berciu et al. focus on localization as one consequence of disorder. The localized and extended electronic states are treated, together with the magnetic degrees of freedom, like spin waves. One of the astonishing consequence of localiza-tion is the observation of resonant Rayleigh backscattering. This is investigated by random matrix theory in the next article by E. Runge et al. and extended to exciton transitions in semiconductor nanostructures. In order to characterize localization, A. Eilmes et al. consider the two-dimensional Anderson model in the following article with special focus on the critical exponents for the localization length. The chapter on disorder ends with a contribution by A. Aldea et al. where the disorder effects are investigated in twodimensional systems with perpendicular magnetic fields such that the interplay between Landau levels and localized states can be considered.The second chapter in the collection is devoted to critical phenomena and phase transitions. It starts with an overview of the most prominent example of critical phenomena, high-Tc superconductivity. A. Sherman presents a review on magnetic and spectral properties of cuprate perovskites within t - J models. The long-range hopping problem and the extraction of critical exponents are the topic of the contribution by E. Cuevas, who calculated the level spacing distribution as well as the correlation dimen-sion in the strong coupling limit. The critical points and the thermodynamics of quenched spatial disordered systems are then treated by T. Vojta et al. Here it is shown that different parts of a system might undergo phase transitions controlled by different parameter values. Different microstructures are important when phenomena like the growth of crystals are considered. Consequently the latter problem is treated in the next contribution by H. Emmrich et al., who develop an analytical solution and compare it to simulations in order to provide insights into the universality of diffusion-limited crystal growth. That the applications of critical phenomena are quite versatile is demonstrated in a short paper by J. Stäring et al. who show how statistical methods can be employed to optimize networks of wireless communication. This chapter on critical phenomena ends with a methodological investigation by U. Grimm. This concerns the often applied random matrix theory, and a method to calculate the level spacing distribution by using coupled differential equations.The third chapter is devoted to transport. It starts with an article about conductance fluctuations by M. Ortuno et al. These quantum fluctuations are considered in localized systems which is directly related to the topics in the first chapter. M. Schröder et al. present in the next article a method to propagate wave functions by approximating them by multi-dimensional wave packets. In contrast to variational methods, this method is based on stochastic calculus. In the case where only a few electrons are transferred, as in the reaction of donor-acceptor complexes and molecular wires, a unified description is presented in the contribution by V. May et al. The transfer rate and the stationary current are calculated and their depend-ence on the length of the molecular system is shown. The method of Green's functions based on local orbitals is used in the next article by M. Albrecht et al. to calculate molecular charge transport. This results into a Landauer theory for the calculation of the transmission coefficient. The special role of elec-tron-electron interaction in the transport properties of disordered wires is considered by H. Mori et al. Here the interplay of interaction and disorder is investigated and the different roles of interaction for the localization phenomena are discussed. We close this chapter on transport by an investigation of electronic transport through nanoparticle arrays. The self-assembled nanoparticle structures are considered within the contri-bution by K. Nicolic whose structures represent very promising nanoelectronic devices.The broad-range approaches and applications selected in these three chapters demonstrate the exciting interplay between structure, disorder, and correlations and suggest the kind of future developments which are to be expected within this field. Finally, in the name of all authors and workshop participants: Happy birthday to Michael Schreiber and all best wishes for exciting future scientific activities!

  17. Reengineering PhysNet in the uPortal framework


    A Digital Library (DL) is an electronic information storage system focused on meeting the information seeking needs of its constituents. As modern DLs often stay in synchronization with the latest progress of technologies in all fields, interoperability among DLs is often hard to achieve. With the advent of the Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting (OAI-PMH) and Open Digital Libraries (ODL), lightweight protocols show a promising future in promoting DL interoperabilit...

  2. Spin g -factor due to electronic interactions in graphene

    Menezes, Natália; Alves, Van Sérgio; Marino, E. C.; Nascimento, Leonardo; Nascimento, Leandro O.; Morais Smith, C.


    The gyromagnetic factor is an important physical quantity relating the magnetic-dipole moment of a particle to its spin. The electron spin g -factor in vacuo is one of the best model-based theoretical predictions ever made, showing agreement with the measured value up to ten parts per trillion [J. Schwinger, Phys. Rev. 73, 416 (1948), 10.1103/PhysRev.73.416; R. S. Van Dyck, Jr. et al., Phys. Rev. Lett. 59, 26 (1987), 10.1103/PhysRevLett.59.26; D. Hanneke et al., Phys. Rev. Lett. 100, 120801 (2008), 10.1103/PhysRevLett.100.120801; T. Aoyama et al., Phys. Rev. Lett. 109, 111807 (2012), 10.1103/PhysRevLett.109.111807]. However, for electrons in a material the g -factor is modified with respect to its value in vacuo because of environment interactions. Here, we show how interaction effects lead to the spin g -factor correction in graphene by considering the full electromagnetic interaction in the framework of pseudo-QED [A. Kovner et al., Phys. Rev. B 42, 4748 (1990), 10.1103/PhysRevB.42.4748; N. Dorey et al., Nucl. Phys. B 386, 614 (1992), 10.1016/0550-3213(92)90632-L; S. Teber, Phys. Rev. D 86, 025005 (2012), 10.1103/PhysRevD.86.025005; S. Teber, Phys. Rev. D 89, 067702 (2014), 10.1103/PhysRevD.89.067702; E. C. Marino, Nucl. Phys. B 408, 551 (1993), 10.1016/0550-3213(93)90379-4]. We compare our theoretical prediction with experiments performed on graphene deposited on SiO2 and SiC, and we find a very good agreement between them.

    This comment is to show that our simulation data, based on our theory and method in Ref. [J. Phys.

We also demonstrate how to show the effect of spatial coherence on the GH shifts in this comment, therefore we disagree with the claims in Ref. [Phys. Rev. Lett. \\textbf{109}, 213901 (2012)].

    Moretto, L G; Phair, L; Wozniak, G J


    In a recent preprint by Tsang and Danielewicz, the authors attempt to give alternative or trivial explanations for the reducible and "thermal" nature of the intermediate mass fragment excitation functions reported previously (Phys. Rev. Lett. 74, 1530 (1995), Phys. Lett B 361, 25 (1995), Phys. Rep. 287, 249 (1997)). We demonstrate that their proposed "self-correlation" explanation for linear Arrhenius plots is based upon a flawed autocorrelation analysis involving circular reasoning.

  10. Hamiltonian theory of the FQHE edge: Collective modes

    Nguyen, Hoang; Joglekar, Yogesh; Murthy, Ganpathy


    We study the collective modes of the fractional quantum Hall edge states using the Hamiltonian formalism [1]. While most theoretical approaches start with an effective bosonic theory [2] in which all fermions are integrated out (an exception is the approach based on Chern-Simons theory [3]), the Hamiltonian theory treats the composite fermions as fully interacting. We obtain the gapless edge-modes using a conserving approximation which respects the constraints [4]. The implications of our study to the tunneling experiments into the edge of a fractional quantum Hall system [5] are discussed. [1] R.Shankar and G.Murthy, Phys.Rev.Lett. 79, 4437 (1997).

    Problems for various random number generators accompanying the Wolff algorithm [U. Wolff, Phys. Rev. Lett. 62 (1989) 361; U. Wolff, Phys. Lett. B 228 (1989) 379] are discussed, including the hidden errors first reported in [A.M. Ferrenberg, D.P. Landau, Y.J. Wong, Phys. Rev. Lett. 69 (1992) 3382]. A general (though simple) method of twisting and combining for improving the performance of these generators is proposed. Some recent generators motivated by such a twisting and combining method with extremely long period are discussed. The proposed method provides a novel and simple way to improve RNGs in its performance.

  1. Relativistically induced transparency acceleration of light ions by an ultrashort laser pulse interacting with a heavy-ion-plasma density gradient

    Sahai, Aakash A.; Tsung, Frank S.; Tableman, Adam R.; Mori, Warren B.; Katsouleas, Thomas C.


    The relativistically induced transparency acceleration (RITA) scheme of proton and ion acceleration using laser-plasma interactions is introduced, modeled, and compared to the existing schemes. Protons are accelerated with femtosecond relativistic pulses to produce quasimonoenergetic bunches with controllable peak energy. The RITA scheme works by a relativistic laser inducing transparency [Akhiezer and Polovin, Zh. Eksp. Teor. Fiz 30, 915 (1956); Kaw and Dawson, Phys. FluidsPFLDAS0031-917110.1063/1.1692942 13, 472 (1970); Max and Perkins, Phys. Rev. Lett.PRLTAO0031-900710.1103/PhysRevLett.27.1342 27, 1342 (1971)] to densities higher than the cold-electron critical density, while the background heavy ions are stationary. The rising laser pulse creates a traveling acceleration structure at the relativistic critical density by ponderomotively [Lindl and Kaw, Phys. FluidsPFLDAS0031-917110.1063/1.1693437 14, 371 (1971); Silva , Phys. Rev. E1063-651X10.1103/PhysRevE.59.2273 59, 2273 (1999)] driving a local electron density inflation, creating an electron snowplow and a co-propagating electrostatic potential. The snowplow advances with a velocity determined by the rate of the rise of the laser's intensity envelope and the heavy-ion-plasma density gradient scale length. The rising laser is incrementally rendered transparent to higher densities such that the relativistic-electron plasma frequency is resonant with the laser frequency. In the snowplow frame, trace density protons reflect off the electrostatic potential and get snowplowed, while the heavier background ions are relatively unperturbed. Quasimonoenergetic bunches of velocity equal to twice the snowplow velocity can be obtained and tuned by controlling the snowplow velocity using laser-plasma parameters. An analytical model for the proton energy as a function of laser intensity, rise time, and plasma density gradient is developed and compared to 1D and 2D PIC OSIRIS [Fonseca , Lect. Note Comput.

    We report a state-independent experimental test of quantum contextuality of a single-photon qutrit. The experimental results demonstrate violations of an inequality originally formulated by Yu and Oh [Phys. Rev. Lett.PRLTAO0031-900710.1103/PhysRevLett.108.030402 108, 030402 (2012)] and further optimized by Cabello [Phys. Rev. APLRAAN1050-294710.1103/PhysRevA.85.032108 85, 032108 (2012)]; this inequality is satisfied by all noncontextual hidden variable models and is violated by all qutrit states. Our experiment shows quantum contextuality of this nature in a most fundamental way: A way that is independent of state and unrelated to entanglement.

  8. Investigation of Precursor Superconducting State in YBa2Cu3O7-δ through In-Plane Optical Spectroscopy

    Lee, Kegan; Kamiya, Keisuke; Nakajima, Masamichi; Miyasaka, Shigeki; Tajima, Setsuko


    A precursor of superconductivity has been searched in the in-plane optical spectra of underdoped YBa2Cu3Oy, in which the previous c-axis optical spectra showed the presence of superconducting carriers at a temperature far above Tc [Uykur et al.," xlink:type="simple">Phys. Rev. Lett. 112, 127003 (2014)][Dubroka et al.," xlink:type="simple">Phys. Rev. Lett. 106, 047006 (2011)]. By carefully subtracting the normal component from the imaginary part of conductivity σ2(ω), we found a clear in-plane response of superconducting condensate at the temperature consistent with the c-axis optical data. This confirms that the precursory superconductivity developing with decreasing doping level is an intrinsic phenomenon in the cuprates.

  9. Absence of a Dirac cone in silicene on Ag(111): First-principles density functional calculations with a modified effective band structure technique

    Wang, Yun-Peng; Cheng, Hai-Ping


    We investigate the currently debated issue of the existence of the Dirac cone in silicene on an Ag(111) surface, using first-principles calculations based on density functional theory to obtain the band structure. By unfolding the band structure in the Brillouin zone of a supercell to that of a primitive cell, followed by projecting onto Ag and silicene subsystems, we demonstrate that the Dirac cone in silicene on Ag(111) is destroyed. Our results clearly indicate that the linear dispersions observed in both angular-resolved photoemission spectroscopy [P. Vogt , Phys. Rev. Lett.PRLTAO0031-900710.1103/PhysRevLett.108.155501 108, 155501 (2012)] and scanning tunneling spectroscopy [L. Chen , Phys. Rev. Lett.PRLTAO0031-900710.1103/PhysRevLett.109.056804 109, 056804 (2012)] come from the Ag substrate and not from silicene.

  10. Evidence for an excited-state Efimov trimer in a three-component Fermi gas.

    Williams, J R; Hazlett, E L; Huckans, J H; Stites, R W; Zhang, Y; O'Hara, K M


    We observe enhanced three-body recombination in a three-component ;{6}Li Fermi gas attributable to an excited Efimov trimer state intersecting the three-atom scattering threshold near 895 G. From measurements of the recombination rate we determine the Efimov parameters kappa_{*} and eta_{*} for the universal region above 600 G which includes three overlapping Feshbach resonances. The value of kappa_{*} also predicts the locations of loss features previously observed near 130 and 500 G [T. B. Ottenstein, Phys. Rev. Lett. 101, 203202 (2008)10.1103/PhysRevLett.101.203202; J. H. Huckans, Phys. Rev. Lett. 102, 165302 (2009)10.1103/PhysRevLett.102.165302] suggesting they are associated with a ground-state Efimov trimer near threshold. We also report on the realization of a degenerate three-component Fermi gas with approximate SU(3) symmetry.

  14. Thermodynamic constraints on the amplitude of quantum oscillations

    Shekhter, Arkady; Modic, K. A.; McDonald, R. D.; Ramshaw, B. J.


    Magneto-quantum oscillation experiments in high-temperature superconductors show a strong thermally induced suppression of the oscillation amplitude approaching the critical dopings [B. J. Ramshaw et al., Science 348, 317 (2014), 10.1126/science.aaa4990; H. Shishido et al., Phys. Rev. Lett. 104, 057008 (2010), 10.1103/PhysRevLett.104.057008; P. Walmsley et al., Phys. Rev. Lett. 110, 257002 (2013), 10.1103/PhysRevLett.110.257002]—in support of a quantum-critical origin of their phase diagrams. We suggest that, in addition to a thermodynamic mass enhancement, these experiments may directly indicate the increasing role of quantum fluctuations that suppress the quantum oscillation amplitude through inelastic scattering. We show that the traditional theoretical approaches beyond Lifshitz-Kosevich to calculate the oscillation amplitude in correlated metals result in a contradiction with the third law of thermodynamics and suggest a way to rectify this problem.

  15. Noise induces rare events in granular media.

    Khain, Evgeniy; Sander, Leonard M


    The granular Leidenfrost effect [B. Meerson, et al., Phys. Rev. Lett. 91, 024301 (2003)PRLTAO0031-900710.1103/PhysRevLett.91.024301; P. Eshuis et al., Phys. Rev. Lett. 95, 258001 (2005)PRLTAO0031-900710.1103/PhysRevLett.95.258001] is the levitation of a mass of granular matter when a wall below the grains is vibrated, giving rise to a hot granular gas below the cluster. We find by simulation that for a range of parameters the system is bistable: the levitated cluster can occasionally break and give rise to two clusters and a hot granular gas above and below. We use techniques from the theory of rare events to compute the mean transition time for breaking to occur. This requires the introduction of a two-component reaction coordinate.

  16. Bell diagonal states with maximal Abelian symmetry

    Chruściński, Dariusz; Kossakowski, Andrzej


    We provide a simple class of 2-qudit states for which one is able to formulate necessary and sufficient conditions for separability. As a by-product, we generalize the well-known construction provided by Horodecki [Phys. Rev. Lett.PRLTAO0031-900710.1103/PhysRevLett.82.1056 82, 1056 (1999)] for d=3. It is hoped that these states with known separability and entanglement properties may be used to test various notions in entanglement theory.

  17. Simulation Evidence for Nonlocal Interface Models: Two Correlation Lengths Describe Complete Wetting

    Pang, Lijun; Landau, D. P.; Binder, K.


    Monte Carlo simulations of (fluctuating) interfaces in Ising models confined between competing walls at temperatures above the wetting transition are presented and various correlation functions probing the interfacial fluctuation are computed. Evidence for the nonlocal interface Hamiltonian approach of A. O. Parry et al. [Phys. Rev. Lett. 93, 086104 (2004)PRLTAO0031-900710.1103/PhysRevLett.93.086104] is given. In particular, we show that two correlation lengths exist with different dependence on the distance D between the walls.

  18. Mutated hybrid inflation in $f(R,{\\Box}R)$-gravity

    Iihoshi, Masao


    A new hybrid inflationary scenario in the context of $f(R,{\\Box}R)$-gravity is proposed. Demanding the waterfall field to 'support the potential from below' [unlike the original proposal by Stewart in Phys. Lett. B345, 414 (1995)], we demonstrate that the scalar potential is similar to that of the large-field chaotic inflation model proposed by Linde in Phys. Lett. B129, 177 (1983).

Based on the extended hyperbolic function method, we successfully obtain the bright and dark soliton solutions. In addition, some new soliton solutions in this model are found. The results in this paper include some in the literature (Phys. Rev. Lett. 94 (2005) 050402 and Chin. Phys. Lett. 22 (2005) 1855).

It is found that this protocol allows of higher error threshold. Compared with the standard entanglement purification proposed by Bennett et al. [Phys.

  17. Boundary-layer effects in droplet splashing

    Riboux, Guillaume; Gordillo, José Manuel


    A drop falling onto a solid substrate will disintegrate into smaller parts when its impact velocity V exceeds the so-called critical velocity for splashing, i.e., when V >V* . Under these circumstances, the very thin liquid sheet, which is ejected tangentially to the solid after the drop touches the substrate, lifts off as a consequence of the aerodynamic forces exerted on it. Subsequently, the growth of capillary instabilities breaks the toroidal rim bordering the ejecta into smaller droplets, violently ejected radially outward, provoking the splash [G. Riboux and J. M. Gordillo, Phys. Rev. Lett. 113, 024507 (2014)], 10.1103/PhysRevLett.113.024507. In this contribution, the effect of the growth of the boundary layer is included in the splash model presented in Phys. Rev. Lett. 113, 024507 (2014), 10.1103/PhysRevLett.113.024507, obtaining very good agreement between the measured and the predicted values of V* for wide ranges of liquid and gas material properties, atmospheric pressures, and substrate wettabilities. Our description also modifies the way at when the liquid sheet is first ejected, which can now be determined in a much more straightforward manner than that proposed in Phys. Rev. Lett. 113, 024507 (2014), 10.1103/PhysRevLett.113.024507.

  19. Development of light materials for hydrogen storage. Final report - summary; Udvikling af lette materialer til brintlagring. Slutrapport - sammenfatning


    The most compact technique to store hydrogen is the metal hydride technique. With this, hydrogen is stored more compact than in liquid form, and it occurs in many instances reversibly at pressures close to the atmospheric pressure. There is though a serious obstacle to many uses of the technique, namely the weight. Most metal hydrides only store 1-2 weight percent hydrogen at moderate temperatures, while there for mobile applications is a demand for 5-10 %. The goal of the present project was to develop new effective materials for hydrogen storage based on light elements. One promising candidate for this is NaAlH{sub 4}, which is known to store hydrogen reversibly in the temperature range 150-200 deg. C with a hydrogen weight capacity of 4-7.5 %.The kinetics of the absorption and desorption of hydrogen in this material when doped with titanium have been shown to improve dramatically yielding it viable for practical applications. In the present project the kinetics were examined by neutron scattering and computer simulations. Here, the kinetic barrier for desorption of hydrogen in NaAlH{sub 4} was found to be reduced to 1/3 when titanium is added, thus giving an explanation for the effectiveness of titanium doping of NaAlH{sub 4}. Experimentally,a result of the project was a dramatic lowering of the desorption temperature by mixing with the compound LiBH{sub 4}. LiBH{sub 4} was also examined in combination with BCC metals, which also proved to lower the desorption temperature. Other, new materials were examined with regard to their use for hydrogen storage, such as the Li-Si-N and Li-AI-N systems. Li{sub 5}SiN{sub 3} was synthesized from Li{sub 3}N and Si by ball milling under nitrogen pressure, and the compound was shown to take up 4 wt%H{sub 2}. Most of this could be desorbed under the reaction conditions (below300 deg. C), thus showing partly reversibility. A related compound, Li{sub 2}SiN{sub 2}, proved to be able to take up nearly 5 wt% (close to the assumed theoretical amount). A complimentary Li-Si-N system containing hydrogen from the start, 2LiNH{sub 2}+Si, was examined with regard to hydrogen desorption, and it was found that up to 5 wt% could be desorbed below 200 deg. C when doping with TiCl{sub 3}. An issue for this system is ammonia release starting around 200 deg. C, and it has yet to show reversibility. Li{sub 3}AlN{sub 2} was also synthesized, and it proved to be able to store 2 wt% below 300 deg. C of which about 1 wt% was reversible. Li{sub 2}AlN{sub 2} has a problem of desorbing ammonia in its hydrogenated state. As part of the experimental work, several pieces of specialized equipment for characterization and synthesis of hydrogen storage materials were acquired or built. Examples include an improved glovebox at Risoe DTU and a high pressure microbalance at DTU. (au)

    @@ Recently, two papers presented by Ortigoso et al. [Phys. Rev. Lett. 93 (2004) 073001 and Phys. Rev. A 72(2005) 053401] develop a novel strategy in which the best sustainable molecular alignment/orientation has been achieved. We intend to analyse the dynamic mechanisms, including those Ortigoso et al. have not clarified.

    Experimental and theoretical efforts are being devoted to the study of observables that can shed light on the properties of the nuclear symmetry energy. We present our new results on the excitation energy [X. Roca-Maza et al., Phys. Rev. C 87, 034301 (2013)] and polarizability of the Isovector Giant Quadrupole Resonance (IVGQR), which has been the object of new experimental investigation [S. S. Henshaw et al., Phys. Rev. Lett. 107, 222501 (2011)]. We also present our theoretical analysis on the parity violating asymmetry at the kinematics of the Lead Radius Experiment [S. Abrahamyan et al. (PREx Collaboration), Phys. Rev. Lett. 108, 112502 (2012)] and highlight its relation with the density dependence of the symmetry energy [X. Roca-Maza et al., Phys. Rev. Lett. 106, 252501 (2011)].

  12. Test of Relativistic Eigenfunctions for Pseudospin Symmetry

    Ginocchio, Joseph N.


    Pseudospin symmetry has been shown to be a relativistic symmetry of the Dirac Hamiltonian [1] and the generators of this symmetry have been determined [2]. Although the measured energy splittings between pseudospin doublets are small, the eigenfunctions of the doublets have been examined only recently [3]. We show to what extent the pseudospin partners of realistic relativistic mean field eigenfunctions [4] are themselves eigenfunctions of the same Dirac Hamiltonian. 1) J. N. Ginocchio, Phys. Rev.

  13. Improvements to laser wakefield accelerated electron beam stability, divergence, and energy spread using three-dimensional printed two-stage gas cell targets

    Vargas, M.; Schumaker, W.; He, Z.-H.; Zhao, Z.; Behm, K.; Chvykov, V.; Hou, B.; Krushelnick, K.; Maksimchuk, A.; Yanovsky, V.; Thomas, A. G. R., E-mail: [Center for Ultrafast Optical Science, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, Michigan 48109 (United States)


    High intensity, short pulse lasers can be used to accelerate electrons to ultra-relativistic energies via laser wakefield acceleration (LWFA) [T. Tajima and J. M. Dawson, Phys. Rev. Lett. 43, 267 (1979)]. Recently, it was shown that separating the injection and acceleration processes into two distinct stages could prove beneficial in obtaining stable, high energy electron beams [Gonsalves et al., Nat. Phys. 7, 862 (2011); Liu et al., Phys. Rev. Lett. 107, 035001 (2011); Pollock et al., Phys. Rev. Lett. 107, 045001 (2011)]. Here, we use a stereolithography based 3D printer to produce two-stage gas targets for LWFA experiments on the HERCULES laser system at the University of Michigan. We demonstrate substantial improvements to the divergence, pointing stability, and energy spread of a laser wakefield accelerated electron beam compared with a single-stage gas cell or gas jet target.

  18. Orthogonal polynomials and operator orderings

    Hamdi, Adel; 10.1063/1.3372526


    An alternative and combinatorial proof is given for a connection between a system of Hahn polynomials and identities for symmetric elements in the Heisenberg algebra, which was first observed by Bender, Mead, and Pinsky [Phys. Rev. Lett. 56 (1986), J. Math. Phys. 28, 509 (1987)] and proved by Koornwinder [J. Phys. Phys. 30(4), 1989]. In the same vein two results announced by Bender and Dunne [J. Math. Phys. 29 (8), 1988] connecting a special one-parameter class of Hermitian operator orderings and the continuous Hahn polynomials are also proved.

  19. Spin-Transfer-Torques at a Ferromagnet/Antiferromagnet Interface

    Tsoi, Maxim


    Spintronics in ferromagnetic systems is built on a complementary set of phenomena in which the magnetic configuration of the system influences its transport properties and vice versa. Giant magnetoresistance (GMR) [1] and spin- transfer-torque (STT) [2] phenomena are typical examples of such interconnections. Recently, MacDonald and co-workers [3] predicted that corresponding effects ought to occur in systems where ferromagnetic (F) components are replaced by antiferromagnets (AFM). I will present our experimental search for these new AFM effects which may potentially lead to a new all-antiferromagnetic spintronics where antiferromagnets are used in place of ferromagnets. In particular I will focus on our experiments with exchange-biased spin valves [4] where extreme current densities were found to affect the exchange bias at F/AFM interface [5-7]. As exchange bias is known to be associated with interfacial AFM magnetic moments, our observation can be taken as the first evidence of STT effect in AFM materials. [4pt] [1] M. N.

  20. The phonon buckling mode in YBa{sub 2}Cu{sub 3}O{sub 6+x} measured by inelastic neutron scattering

    Raichle, Markus; Bakr, Mohammed; Hinkov, Vladimir; Ulrich, Clemens; Broell, Markus; Lin, Chengtian; Keimer, Bernhard [MPI fuer Festkoerperforschung, Stuttgart (Germany); Reznik, Dmitry; Lamago, Daniel; Bourges, Philippe; Sidis, Yvan [Laboratoire Leon Brillouin, Paris (France); Hradil, Klaudia [Universitaet Goettingen, Goettingen (Germany)


    Cuk et al.[Phys. Rev. Lett. 93, 117003 (2004)] and Devereaux et al.[Phys. Rev. Lett. 93, 117004 (2004)] relate the antinoidal kink in ARPES measurements with the B1g phonon buckling mode. However, this assumption is controversial as this kink has also been related to the magnetic resonance mode by Kaminski et al.[Phys. Rev. Lett. 86, 1070 (2001)] and Kim et al.[Phys. Rev. Lett. 91, 167002 (2003)]. Until now inelastic neutron scattering measurements on this phonon mode on YBa{sub 2}Cu{sub 3}O{sub 6+x} by Reznik et al.[Phys. Rev. Lett. 75, 2396 (1995)] has only been done on twinned samples for x=1. Here we present high resolution neutron measurements on the buckling mode on YBCO for x=0.6 and x=1.0. These measurements performed at Puma and 1T1 at Saclay have been made on fully detwinned samples. Thus we could show that this phonon mode performes an anisotropic superconductivity-induced interaction with a neighboring phonon mode. Hence these measurements enrich the experimental evidence for superconductivity induced phonon effects in high temperature superconductors.

  1. Erratum to: “Vortex fermion on the lattice” [Nucl. Phys. B 636 (2002) 264 290

    Nagao, Keiichi


    In Ref. [H. Neuberger, hep-lat/03030090] Neuberger studied a vortex fermion model with two continuum extra-dimensions, and pointed out that there are no k≠0 zero modes, which is in disagreement with our paper. Since this discrepancy is due to an error in our paper, we give relevant corrections. The main result of our paper that a normalizable zero mode solution appears at the core of the vortex does not change.

  2. Alternative Interpretation of Nucl. Instrum. Methods Phys. Res. A 410 (1998) 357 (H. Dewa et al.)

    Bernard, D; Leemans, W P; Esarey, E; Joshi, C


    We consider a recent publication [H. Dewa et al., NIM A 410, 357 (1998)] of an experiment on ultra-high energy laser wakefield acceleration of electrons, involving channeling of the laser pulse in the plasma. We find that in these experiments, channeling of the laser pulse may not have occurred and the detected electron signal may be background noise resulting from multiple electron scattering.

  3. Comment on ``Particle size distribution effects on sintering rates'' [J. Appl. Phys. 60, 383 (1986)

    Harrett, T.


    A recent paper in the Journal of Applied Physics analyzed the dependence of sintering rate on power particle-size distribution to derive a basic relative rate constant for the process. The derivation involved rather cumbersome numerical quadratures of the lognormal functions concerned. This procedure is unnecessary, since an exact closed-form result, as given in this Comment, is easily obtained. Some fairly obvious incidental errors in the original presentation are also corrected. Several other lognormal distribution integrals, apparently unlisted in previous literature and which might prove similarly useful in connection with distribution problems, are also presented.

    Chaos has been observed in the formation of Taylor Vortex pairs in Modified Taylor Couette flow with hourglass geometry. Control of chaos has been demonstrated in this system employing the RPF algorithm. Seeking alternative algorithms, we are implementing the OGY algorithm in a numerical model of a damped driven mechanical pendulum and a physical apparatus. We report on both and future plans for the Modified Taylor-Couette system. Wiener et al, Phys. Rev. E 55, 5489 (1997). Rollins et al, Phys. Rev. E 47, R780 (1993). Wiener et al, Phys. Rev.

    Johnston, Tudor; Afeyan, Bedros


    We examine some theoretical nonlinear Vlasov work invoked in connection with recent laser-plasma experiments [1] on Electron Acoustic Waves and their stimulated scatter (SEAS). Earlier work discussed [2-5] is then related to more recent theory [6] used to interpret [1]. All this [2-6] is then related the recent Vlasov-Poisson findings of Afeyan et al. [7] on Kinetic Electrostatic Electron Nonlinear (KEEN) waves. (Part of this work was performed under the auspices of the U.S. Department of Energy under grant number DE-FG03-NA00059.) [1] D.S.

  8. Squeezed magnons in an optical lattice: Application to simulation of the dynamical Casimir effect at finite temperature

    Zhao, Xing-Dong; Zhao, Xu; Jing, Hui; Zhou, Lu; Zhang, Weiping


    We propose to realize controllable squeezing states of ferromagnetic magnons with a spinor Bose-Einstein condensate confined in an optical lattice. We use an external laser field to induce optical dipole-dipole interaction, which leads to magnon excitations of the system. By focusing on the role of the long-range magnetic and the optical dipole-dipole interactions, we show that the existence and properties of the produced squeezed magnons can be well controlled by tuning the transverse trapping widths of the condensates. We also show that the magnon excitations in this system have a close analogy with the dynamical Casimir effect at finite temperature predicted by Plunien [Phys. Rev. Lett.PRLTAO0031-900710.1103/PhysRevLett.84.1882 84, 1882 (2000)] and Jing [Phys. Lett. APYLAAG0375-960110.1016/S0375-9601(00)00165-1 268, 174 (2000)].

  9. Trojan-horse attacks on quantum key distribution with classical Bob

    Yang, Yu-Guang; Sun, Si-Jia; Zhao, Qian-Qian


    Recently, Boyer et al. (Phys Rev Lett 99:140501, 2007) introduced a conceptually novel semi-quantum key distribution scheme (BKM07). Tan et al. (Phys Rev Lett 102:098901, 2009) showed that classical Bob is unable to detect Eve's eavesdropping by giving a special implementation of BKM07 protocol. In the reply, Boyer et al. (Phys Rev Lett 102:098902, 2009) gave a solution against the eavesdropping, i.e., Bob may place a filter that allows only photons with approximately specific frequency to pass just at the expected time . However, their improvement contradicts the descriptions about "classical." If the assumption of "classical" is not considered, we give a delay-photon Trojan-horse attack on BKM07 protocol and its improvement and further present a possible improvement.

  10. Time-reversal Aharonov-Casher effect in mesoscopic rings with spin-orbit interaction

    Zhu, Zhenyue; Wang, Yong; Xia, Ke; Xie, X. C.; Ma, Zhongshui


    The time-reversal Aharonov-Casher (AC) [Phys. Rev. Lett. 53, 319 (1984)] interference effect in the mesoscopic ring structures, based on the experiment in Phys. Rev. Lett. 97, 196803 (2006), is studied theoretically. The transmission curves are calculated from the scattering matrix formalism, and the time-reversal AC interference frequency is singled out from the Fourier spectra in numerical simulations. This frequency is in good agreement with analytical result. It is also shown that in the absence of magnetic field, the Altshuler-Aronov-Spivak type [JETP Lett. 33, 94 (1981)] (time reversal) AC interference is retained under the influence of strong disorder, while the Aharonov-Bohm type [Phys. Rev. 115, 485 (1959)] AC interference is suppressed.

  11. Ultrafast Coercivity Dynamics in GaMnAs

    Hall, Kimberley; Zahn, Jeremy; March, Samuel; Liu, Xinyu; Furdyna, Jacek


    The hole-mediated ferromagnetism in III-Mn-V diluted magnetic semiconductors opens up a whole host of possibilities for future multifunctional devices. Control over the ferromagnetic properties in these materials through hole density modulation has been demonstrated using electrical gates [1] and CW optical excitation [2], and more recently using femtosecond optical excitation [3,4]. Using time-resolved magneto-optical Kerr Effect spectroscopy, we have measured the magnetization and coercivity dynamics in GaMnAs. Our experiments reveal a subpicosecond ferromagnetic to paramagnetic phase transition followed by coercivity enhancement on longer time scales. Our findings are promising for possible applications in ultrafast, nonthermal magneto-optical recording using diluted magnetic semiconductors. [1] H. Ohno et al., Nature 408, 944 (2000). [2] S.

    Evolution of periodic waves and solitary waves in Bose-Einstein condensates (BECs) with time-dependent atomic scattering length in an expulsive parabolic potential is studied. Based on the mapping deformation method, we successfully obtain periodic wave solutions and solitary wave solutions, including the bright and dark soliton solutions.

  1. Reynolds number effects on the single-mode Richtmyer-Meshkov instability

    Walchli, B.; Thornber, B.


    The Reynolds number effects on the nonlinear growth rates of the Richtmyer-Meshkov instability are investigated using two-dimensional numerical simulations. A decrease in Reynolds number gives an increased time to reach nonlinear saturation, with Reynolds number effects only significant in the range RePhys. Rev. E 80, 055302 (2009), 10.1103/PhysRevE.80.055302]. Predicted amplitudes show reasonable agreement with the existing theory of Carles and Popinet [P. Carles and S. Popinet, Phys. Fluids Lett. 13, 1833 (2001), 10.1063/1.1377863; Eur. J. Mech. B 21, 511 (2002), 10.1016/S0997-7546(02)01199-8] and Mikaelian [K. O. Mikaelian, Phys. Rev.

  2. Response to the comment on "Paradox of photons disconnected trajectories being located by means of `weak measurements' in the nested Mach-Zehnder interferometer" (JETP Letters 105, 152 (2017))

    Nikolaev, G. N.


    In [JETP Lett. 105(3), 152 (2017)], a clear and comprehensive analysis of the paradoxical results of experiment [Phys. Rev. Lett. 111, 240402 (2013)] was carried out on the basis of the classical wave theory of light, which presupposes the continuity of possible of light paths. It was shown that the paradoxical results of the experiment are due not to the discontinuity of the trajectories of light, as claimed in [Phys. Rev. Lett. 111, 240402 (2013)], but to the used way of detecting the path of photons. The experiment modification proposed in [JETP Lett. 105(3), 152 (2017)] allows us to eliminate the seeming discontinuity of the light trajectories. In Comment [arXiv:1705.02137 (2017)] to the article such modification is declared unreasonable. This Response to the Comment shows that this statement is not based on clear and logical arguments. Instead, it is only asserted that the proposed modification "violates the faithfulness indication of the trace" of photons. Therefore, the Comment's criticism can not be considered as well-founded. Consequently, the conclusion of [JETP Lett. 105(3), 152 (2017)] that a new concept of disconnected trajectories proposed by the authors of work [Phys. Rev. Lett. 111, 240402 (2013)] is unnecessary, remains valid.

  3. Series of (2+1)-dimensional stable self-dual interacting conformal field theories

    Cheng, Meng; Xu, Cenke


    Using the duality between seemingly different (2+1)-dimensional [(2 +1 )d ] conformal field theories (CFT) proposed recently [D. T. Son, Phys. Rev. X 5, 031027 (2015), 10.1103/PhysRevX.5.031027; M. A. Metlitski and A. Vishwanath, Phys. Rev. B 93, 245151 (2016), 10.1103/PhysRevB.93.245151; C. Wang and T. Senthil, Phys. Rev.

B 93, 085110 (2016), 10.1103/PhysRevB.93.085110; C. Xu and Y.-Z. You, Phys. Rev. B 92, 220416 (2015), 10.1103/PhysRevB.92.220416; D. F. Mross et al., Phys. Rev. Lett. 117, 016802 (2016), 10.1103/PhysRevLett.117.016802; A. Karch and D. Tong, arXiv:1606.01893; N. Seiberg et al., arXiv:1606.01989; P.-S. Hsin and N. Seiberg, arXiv:1607.07457], we study a series of (2 +1 )d stable self-dual interacting CFTs. These CFTs can be realized (for instance) on the boundary of the 3 d bosonic topological insulator protected by U(1) and time-reversal symmetry (T ), and they remain stable as long as these symmetries are preserved. When realized as a boundary system, these CFTs can be driven into anomalous fractional quantum Hall states once T is broken. We demonstrate that the newly proposed dualities allow us to study these CFTs quantitatively through a controlled calculation, without relying on a large flavor number of matter fields. We also propose a numerical test for our results, which would provide strong evidence for the originally proposed duality between Dirac fermion and QED.

  4. Topological phase structure of entangled qudits

    Khoury, A. Z.; Oxman, L. E.


    We discuss the appearance of fractional topological phases on cyclic evolutions of entangled qudits. The original result reported by Oxman and Khoury [Phys. Rev. Lett. 106, 240503 (2011), 10.1103/PhysRevLett.106.240503] is detailed and extended to qudits of different dimensions. The topological nature of the phase evolution and its restriction to fractional values are related to both the structure of the projective space of states and entanglement. For maximally entangled states of qudits with the same Hilbert-space dimension, the fractional geometric phases are the only ones attainable under local SU(d) operations, an effect that can be experimentally observed through conditional interference.

    Blossey, R; Maggs, A C; Podgornik, R


    We present a derivation of generalized Poisson-Boltzmann equations starting from classical theories of binary fluid mixtures, employing an approach based on the Legendre transform as recently applied to the case of local descriptions of the fluid free energy. Under specific symmetry assumptions, and in the linearized regime, the Poisson-Boltzmann equation reduces to a phenomenological equation introduced by Bazant et al. [Phys. Rev. Lett. 106, 046102 (2011)]PRLTAO0031-900710.1103/PhysRevLett.106.046102, whereby the structuring near the surface is determined by bulk coefficients.

  9. Fractional Feynman-Kac equation for non-brownian functionals.

    Turgeman, Lior; Carmi, Shai; Barkai, Eli


    We derive backward and forward fractional Feynman-Kac equations for the distribution of functionals of the path of a particle undergoing anomalous diffusion. Fractional substantial derivatives introduced by Friedrich and co-workers [Phys. Rev. Lett. 96, 230601 (2006)10.1103/PhysRevLett.96.230601] provide the correct fractional framework for the problem. For applications, we calculate the distribution of occupation times in half space and show how the statistics of anomalous functionals is related to weak ergodicity breaking.

  11. Classical Field-Theoretical approach to the non-linear q-Klein-Gordon Equation

    Plastino, A


    In the wake of efforts made in [EPL {\\bf 97}, 41001 (2012)], we extend them here by developing a classical field theory (FT)to the q-Klein-Gordon equation advanced in [Phys. Rev. Lett. {\\bf 106}, 140601 (2011)]. This makes it possible to generate a hipotetical conjecture regarding black matter. We also develop the classical field theory for a q-Schrodinger equation, different from the one in [EPL {\\bf 97}, 41001 (2012)], that was deduced in [Phys. Lett. A {\\bf 379}, 2690 (2015)] from the hypergeometric differential equation. Our two classical theories reduce to the usual quantum FT for $q\\rightarrow 1$.

In reply to the above cited work we submitted this paper as a comment to Phys. Rev. Lett.

  14. Four-state continuous-variable quantum key distribution with long secure distance

    Yang, Jian; Xu, Bingjie; Peng, Xiang; Guo, Hong


    The four-state continuous-variable quantum key distribution protocol has a long practical secure distance [A. Leverrier and P. Grangier, Phys. Rev. Lett.PRLTAO0031-900710.1103/PhysRevLett.102.180504 102, 180504 (2009)], while it poses the difficulty of parameter estimation. We propose an improved four-state protocol where the covariance matrix can be estimated from experimental data without using the linear channel assumption, thus ensuring its unconditional security in the asymptotical limit. Our scheme maintains the advantage of high reconciliation efficiency of the four-state protocol, which ensures long practical secure distance its. Our scheme can be implemented with the current technology.

    Motivated by the work of Granda and Oliveros [L.N. Granda, A. Oliveros, Phys. Lett. B 671 (2009) 199], we generalize their work to the non-flat case. We study the correspondence between the quintessence, tachyon, K-essence and dilaton scalar field models with the new holographic dark energy model in the non-flat FRW universe. We reconstruct the potentials and the dynamics for these scalar field models, which describe accelerated expansion of the universe. In the limiting case of a flat universe, i.e. k=0, all results given in [L.N. Granda, A. Oliveros, Phys. Lett. B 671 (2009) 199] are obtained.

  17. Joint measurability and temporal steering [Invited

    Karthik, H. S.; Prabhu Tej, J.; Usha Devi, A. R.; Rajagopal, A. K.


    Quintino et. al. (Phys. Rev. Lett. 113, 160402 (2014)) and Uola et. al. (Phys. Rev. Lett. 113, 160403 (2014)) have recently established an intrinsic relation between non-joint measurability and Einstein-Podolsky- Rosen steering. They showed that a set of measurements is incompatible (i.e., not jointly measurable) if and only if it can be used for the demonstration of steering. In this paper, we prove the temporal analog of this result viz., a set of measurements are incompatible if and only if it exhibits temporal steering.

  19. Comment on the "Decrease of the surface resistance in superconducting niobium resonator cavities by the microwave field"

    Romanenko, A


    In a recent publication [Appl. Phys. Lett. 104, 092601 (2014)] Ciovati et al. claim that: 1) thermal effects were disregarded in our original work [*]; 2) increase of $Q$ at $T=2$ K up to about $B\\sim$100 mT in nitrogen doped cavities is just an extended low field $Q$ slope observed in non-doped cavities, which is furthermore attributed to the decrease of the "BCS" component of surface resistance. Here we show that both claims are wrong and the conclusions of Ciovati et al. are incorrect. [*] A. Romanenko and A. Grassellino, Appl. Phys. Lett. 102, 252603 (2013)

  1. Observation of Defect-Free Surface Modes in Optical Waveguide Arrays

    Szameit, Alexander; Garanovich, Ivan L.; Heinrich, Matthias; Sukhorukov, Andrey A.; Dreisow, Felix; Pertsch, Thomas; Nolte, Stefan; Tünnermann, Andreas; Kivshar, Yuri S.


    We report on the experimental observation of novel defect-free surface modes predicted theoretically for modulated photonic lattices [I. L. Garanovich et al., Phys. Rev. Lett. 100, 203904 (2008)PRLTAO0031-900710.1103/PhysRevLett.100.203904]. We generate the linear surface modes in truncated arrays of periodically curved optical waveguides created in fused silica by a laser direct-writing technique. Our results demonstrate that the degree of surface wave localization can be controlled by selecting the waveguide bending amplitude.

  2. Role of syndrome information on a one-way quantum repeater using teleportation-based error correction

    Namiki, Ryo; Jiang, Liang; Kim, Jungsang; Lütkenhaus, Norbert


    We investigate a quantum repeater scheme for quantum key distribution based on the work by S. Muralidharan et al. [Phys. Rev. Lett. 112, 250501 (2014)], 10.1103/PhysRevLett.112.250501. Our scheme extends that work by making use of error syndrome measurement outcomes available at the repeater stations. We show how to calculate the secret key rates for the case of optimizing the syndrome information, while the known key rate is based on a scenario of coarse graining the syndrome information. We show that these key rates can surpass the Pirandola-Laurenza-Ottaviani-Banchi bound on secret key rates of direct transmission over lossy bosonic channels.

  4. Aharonov-Casher and Scalar Aharonov-Bohm Topological Effects

    Dulat, Sayipjamal; Ma, Kai


    We reexamine the topological and nonlocal natures of the Aharonov-Casher and scalar Aharonov-Bohm phase effects. The underlying U(1) gauge structure is exhibited explicitly. And the conditions for developing topological Aharonov-Casher and scalar Aharonov-Bohm phases are clarified. We analyze the arguments of M. Peshkin and H. J. Lipkin [Phys. Rev. Lett. 74, 2847 (1995)PRLTAO0031-900710.1103/PhysRevLett.74.2847] in detail and show that they are based on the wrong Hamiltonian which yields their conclusion incorrect.

  5. Comment on "Aharonov-Casher and Scalar Aharonov-Bohm Topological Effects"

    Choi, Taeseung; Cho, Sam Young


    In this Comment we point out (i) that the Hamiltonian, Eq. (17) in the Letter(Phys. Rev. Lett. 108, 070405 (2012)), is not a relativistic Hamiltonian, (ii) then that the conditions in the Letter are irrelevant for a topological AC and SAB effects, and (iii) conclusively that the non-relativistic Hamiltonian employed by Peshkin and Lipkin (Phys. Rev. Lett. 74, 2847 (1995)) has the same $U(1)_{mm}$ gauge structure for a fixed spin and then is not wrong, but their incorrect interpretation of the spin autocorrelations led to the incorrect conclusion.

  10. Finite precision measurement does not nullify the Kochen-Specker theorem

    Cabello, A


    It is proven that any hidden variable theory of the type proposed by Meyer [Phys. Rev. Lett. 83, 3751 (1999)], Kent [Phys. Rev. Lett. 83, 3755 (1999)], and Clifton and Kent [Proc. R. Soc. Lond. A 456, 2101 (2000)] leads to experimentally testable predictions which are in contradiction with those of quantum mechanics. Therefore, it is argued that the existence of dense Kochen-Specker-colorable sets must not be interpreted as a nullification of the physical impact of the Kochen-Specker theorem once the finite precision of real measurements is taken into account.

  11. Cellular ability to sense spatial gradients in the presence of multiple competitive ligands

    Liou, Shu-Hao; Chen, Chia-Chu


    Many eukaryotic and prokaryotic cells can exhibit remarkable sensing ability under small gradients of chemical compounds. In this study, we approach this phenomenon by considering the contribution of multiple ligands to the chemical kinetics within the Michaelis-Menten model. This work was inspired by the recent theoretical findings of Hu [Phys. Rev. Lett.PRLTAO0031-900710.1103/PhysRevLett.105.048104 105, 048104 (2010)]. Our treatment with practical binding energies and chemical potentials provides results that are consistent with experimental observations.

  12. Testing Hardy's nonlocality proof with genuine energy-time entanglement

    Vallone, Giuseppe; Gianani, Ilaria; Inostroza, Enrique B.; Saavedra, Carlos; Lima, Gustavo; Cabello, Adán; Mataloni, Paolo


    We show two experimental realizations of Hardy’s ladder test of quantum nonlocality using energy-time correlated photons, following the scheme proposed by Cabello [Phys. Rev. Lett.PRLTAO0031-900710.1103/PhysRevLett.102.040401 102, 040401 (2009)]. Unlike previous energy-time Bell experiments, these tests require precisely tailored nonmaximally entangled states. One of them is equivalent to the two-setting and two-outcome Bell test requiring a minimum detection efficiency. The reported experiments are still affected by the locality and detection loopholes, but are free of the post-selection loophole of previous energy-time and time-bin Bell tests.

  13. Experimental Test of Quantum Contextuality in Neutron Interferometry

    Bartosik, H.; Klepp, J.; Schmitzer, C.; Sponar, S.; Cabello, A.; Rauch, H.; Hasegawa, Y.


    We performed an experimental test of the Kochen-Specker theorem based on an inequality derived from the Peres-Mermin proof, using spin-path (momentum) entanglement in a single neutron system. Following the strategy proposed by Cabello et al. [Phys. Rev. Lett. 100, 130404 (2008)PRLTAO0031-900710.1103/PhysRevLett.100.130404], a Bell-like state was generated, and three expectation values were determined. The observed violation 2.291±0.008≰1 clearly shows that quantum mechanical predictions cannot be reproduced by noncontextual hidden-variable theories.

  15. Strictly nonclassical behavior of a mesoscopic system

    Hu, Jiazhong; Vendeiro, Zachary; Chen, Wenlan; Zhang, Hao; McConnell, Robert; Sørensen, Anders S.; Vuletić, Vladan


    We experimentally demonstrate the strictly nonclassical behavior in a many-atom system using a recently derived criterion [E. Kot et al., Phys. Rev. Lett. 108, 233601 (2012), 10.1103/PhysRevLett.108.233601] that explicitly does not make use of quantum mechanics. We thereby show that the magnetic-moment distribution measured by McConnell et al. [Nature (London) 519, 439 (2015), 10.1038/nature14293] in a system with a total mass of 2.6 ×105 atomic mass units is inconsistent with classical physics. Notably, the strictly nonclassical behavior affects an area in phase space 103 times larger than the Planck quantum ℏ .

  16. An experimental demonstration of single photon nonlocality

    Hessmo, B; Heydari, H; Björk, G; Hessmo, Bj\\"orn; Usachev, Pavel; Heydari, Hoshang; Bj\\"ork, Gunnar


    In this letter we experimentally implement a single photon Bell test based on the ideas of S. Tan et al. [Phys. Rev. Lett., vol. 66, 252 (1991)] and L. Hardy [Phys. Rev. Lett.,vol. 73, 2279 (1994)]. A double heterodyne measurement is used to measure correlations in the Fock space spanned by zero and one photons. Local oscillators used in the correlation measurement are distributed to two observers by co-propagating it in an orthogonal polarization mode. This method eliminates the need for interferometrical stability in the setup, consequently making it a robust and scalable method.

  17. Infinite randomness fixed point of the superconductor-metal quantum phase transition.

    Del Maestro, Adrian; Rosenow, Bernd; Müller, Markus; Sachdev, Subir


    We examine the influence of quenched disorder on the superconductor-metal transition, as described by a theory of overdamped Cooper pairs which repel each other. The self-consistent pairing eigenmodes of a quasi-one-dimensional wire are determined numerically. Our results support the recent proposal by Hoyos et al. [Phys. Rev. Lett. 99, 230601 (2007)10.1103/PhysRevLett.99.230601] that the transition is characterized by the same strong-disorder fixed point describing the onset of ferromagnetism in the random quantum Ising chain in a transverse field.

  18. Techniques used to search for a permanent electric dipole moment of the 199Hg atom and the implications for CP violation

    Swallows, M. D.; Loftus, T. H.; Griffith, W. C.; Heckel, B. R.; Fortson, E. N.; Romalis, M. V.


    We discuss in detail the search for a permanent electric dipole moment (EDM) of the 199Hg atom reported by Griffith [Phys. Rev. Lett.PRLTAO0031-900710.1103/PhysRevLett.102.101601 102, 101601 (2009)]. The upper bound, d(199Hg)EDM limit for 199Hg, provides the most sensitive probe to date for EDMs in diamagnetic atoms, and sets new limits on time-reversal symmetry violation in extensions to the standard model. This paper provides extensive discussion of the techniques used to search for the 199Hg EDM and the implications of the new 199Hg EDM limit for CP violation in elementary particle interactions.

  20. Precision measurements with atom interferometry

    Schubert, Christian; Abend, Sven; Schlippert, Dennis; Ertmer, Wolfgang; Rasel, Ernst M.


    Interferometry with matter waves enables precise measurements of rotations, accelerations, and differential accelerations [1-5]. This is exploited for determining fundamental constants [2], in fundamental science as e.g. testing the universality of free fall [3], and is applied for gravimetry [4], and gravity gradiometry [2,5]. At the Institut für Quantenoptik in Hannover, different approaches are pursued. A large scale device is designed and currently being set up to investigate the gain in precision for gravimetry, gradiometry, and fundamental tests on large baselines [6]. For field applications, a compact and transportable device is being developed. Its key feature is an atom chip source providing a collimated high flux of atoms which is expected to mitigate systematic uncertainties [7,8]. The atom chip technology and miniaturization benefits from microgravity experiments in the drop tower in Bremen and sounding rocket experiments [8,9] which act as pathfinders for space borne operation [10]. This contribution will report about our recent results. The presented work is supported by the CRC 1227 DQ-mat, the CRC 1128 geo-Q, the RTG 1729, the QUEST-LFS, and by the German Space Agency (DLR) with funds provided by the Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) due to an enactment of the German Bundestag under Grant No. DLR 50WM1552-1557.

  1. The effects of the N atom collective Lamb shift on single photon superradiance

    Scully, Marlan O.; Svidzinsky, Anatoly A.


    The problem of single photon collective spontaneous emission, a.k.a. superradiance, from N atoms prepared by a single photon pulse of wave vector k has been the subject of recent interest. It has been shown that a single photon absorbed uniformly by the N atoms will be followed by spontaneous emission in the same direction [M. Scully, E. Fry, C.H.R. Ooi, K. Wodkiewicz, Phys. Rev. Lett. 96 (2006) 010501; M. Scully, Laser Phys. 17 (2007) 635]; and in extensions of this work we have found a new kind of cavity QED in which the atomic cloud acts as a cavity containing the photon [A.A. Svidzinsky, J.T. Chang, M.O. Scully, Phys. Rev. Lett. 100 (2008) 160504]. In most of our studies, we have neglected virtual photon (“Lamb shift”) contributions. However, in a recent interesting paper, Friedberg and Mannassah [R. Friedberg, J.T. Manassah, Phys. Lett. A 372 (2008) 2514] study the effect of virtual photons investigating ways in which such effects can modify the time dependence and angular distributions of collective single photon emission. In the present Letter, we show that such virtual transitions play no essential role in our problem. The conclusions of [M. Scully, E. Fry, C.H.R. Ooi, K. Wodkiewicz, Phys. Rev.

However, the N atom Lamb shift is an interesting problem in its own right and we here extend previous work both analytically and numerically.

  3. Edge reconstructions in fractional quantum Hall systems.

    Joglekar, Yogesh; Nguyen, Hoang; Murthy, Ganpathy


    Two dimensional electron systems exhibiting fractional quantum Hall effects are characterized by a quantized Hall conductance and a dissipationless bulk. The transport in these systems occurs only at the edges where gapless excitations are possible [1]. We present a microscopic calculation of these egde-states at filling factors ν=1/3 and ν=2/5 using the Hamiltonian theory of the fractional quantum Hall effect [2]. We find that the quantum Hall egde undergoes a reconstruction as the confining potential, produced by the background charge density, softens [3,4]. Our results have implications to the tunneling experiments into the edge of a fractional quantum Hall system [5]. 1: X. G.Wen, Phys. Rev. Lett. 64, 2206 (1990). 2: R. Shankar and G. Murthy, Phys.

  4. FAST TRACK COMMUNICATION: Quantum chaos on discrete graphs

    Smilansky, Uzy


    Adapting a method developed for the study of quantum chaos on quantum (metric) graphs (Kottos and Smilansky 1997 Phys. Rev. Lett. 79 4794, Kottos and Smilansky 1999 Ann. Phys., NY 274 76), spectral ζ functions and trace formulae for discrete Laplacians on graphs are derived. This is achieved by expressing the spectral secular equation in terms of the periodic orbits of the graph and obtaining functions which belong to the class of ζ functions proposed originally by Ihara (1966 J. Mat. Soc. Japan 18 219) and expanded by subsequent authors (Stark and Terras 1996 Adv. Math. 121 124, Kotani and Sunada 2000 J. Math. Sci. Univ. Tokyo 7 7). Finally, a model of 'classical dynamics' on the discrete graph is proposed. It is analogous to the corresponding classical dynamics derived for quantum graphs (Kottos and Smilansky 1997 Phys. Rev. Lett. 79 4794, Kottos and Smilansky 1999 Ann. Phys., NY 274 76).

  5. Spatially anisotropic Heisenberg kagome antiferromagnet

    Apel, W.; Yavors'kii, T.; Everts, H.-U.


    In the search for spin-1/2 kagome antiferromagnets, the mineral volborthite has recently been the subject of experimental studies (Hiroi et al 2001 J. Phys. Soc. Japan 70 3377; Fukaya et al 2003 Phys. Rev. Lett. 91 207603; Bert et al 2004 J. Phys.: Condens. Matter 16 S829; Bert et al 2005 Phys. Rev. Lett. 95 087203). It has been suggested that the magnetic properties of this material are described by a spin-1/2 Heisenberg model on the kagome lattice with spatially anisotropic exchange couplings. We report on investigations of the {\\mathrm {Sp}}(\\mathcal {N}) symmetric generalization of this model in the large \\mathcal {N} limit. We obtain a detailed description of the dependence of possible ground states on the anisotropy and on the spin length S. A fairly rich phase diagram with a ferrimagnetic phase, incommensurate phases with and without long-range order and a decoupled chain phase emerges.

  6. Analysis of photon count data from single-molecule fluorescence experiments

    Burzykowski, T.; Szubiakowski, J.; Ryden, T


    We consider single-molecule fluorescence experiments with data in the form of counts of photons registered over multiple time-intervals. Based on the observation schemes, linking back to works by Dehmelt [Bull. Am. Phys. Soc. 20 (1975) 60] and Cook and Kimble [Phys. Rev. Lett. 54 (1985) 1023], we propose an analytical approach to the data based on the theory of Markov-modulated Poisson processes (MMPP). In particular, we consider maximum-likelihood estimation. The method is illustrated using a real-life dataset. Additionally, the properties of the proposed method are investigated through simulations and compared to two other approaches developed by Yip et al. [J. Phys. Chem. A 102 (1998) 7564] and Molski [Chem. Phys. Lett. 324 (2000) 301].

  7. Comment on "Generalized exclusion processes: Transport coefficients"

    Becker, T.; Nelissen, K.; Cleuren, B.; Partoens, B.; Van den Broeck, C.


    In a recent paper, Arita et al. [Phys. Rev. E 90, 052108 (2014), 10.1103/PhysRevE.90.052108] consider the transport properties of a class of generalized exclusion processes. Analytical expressions for the transport-diffusion coefficient are derived by ignoring correlations. It is claimed that these expressions become exact in the hydrodynamic limit. In this Comment, we point out that (i) the influence of correlations upon the diffusion does not vanish in the hydrodynamic limit, and (ii) the expressions for the self- and transport diffusion derived by Arita et al. are special cases of results derived in Becker et al. [Phys. Rev. Lett. 111, 110601 (2013), 10.1103/PhysRevLett.111.110601].

  8. Analysis of the giant spin Hall effect in Cu(Bi) alloys

    Fedorov, Dmitry V.; Herschbach, Christian; Johansson, Annika; Ostanin, Sergey; Mertig, Ingrid; Gradhand, Martin; Chadova, Kristina; Ködderitzsch, Diemo; Ebert, Hubert


    Two years after the prediction of a giant spin Hall effect for the dilute Cu(Bi) alloy [Gradhand , Phys. Rev. BPRBMDO1098-012110.1103/PhysRevB.81.245109 81, 245109 (2010)], a comparably strong effect was measured in thin films of Cu(Bi) alloys by Niimi [Phys. Rev. Lett.PRLTAO0031-900710.1103/PhysRevLett.109.156602 109, 156602 (2012)]. Both theory and experiment consider the skew-scattering mechanism to be responsible, however they obtain opposite sign for the spin Hall angle. Based on a detailed analysis of the obtained theoretical results, we propose that either the formation of extremely small clusters or the influence of interface roughness and grain boundaries decorated with Bi atoms are responsible for the observed phenomenon.

  9. Exact path integral for 3D higher spin gravity

    Honda, Masazumi; Iizuka, Norihiro; Tanaka, Akinori; Terashima, Seiji


    Extending the works of [Phys. Rev. Lett. 115, 161304 (2015), 10.1103/PhysRevLett.115.161304] and [Phys. Rev. D 93, 064014 (2016), 10.1103/PhysRevD.93.064014], we study three dimensional Euclidean higher spin gravity with negative cosmological constant. This theory can be formulated in terms of S L (N ,C ) Chern-Simons theory. By introducing auxiliary fields, we rewrite it in a supersymmetric way and compute its partition function exactly by using the localization method. We obtain a good expression for the partition function in terms of characters for the vacuum and primaries in 2D unitary conformal field theory with WN symmetry. We also check that the coefficients of the character expansion are positive integers and exhibit Cardy formula in the large central charge limit.

    Chen, Yang


    In this Brief Report we show that a recent model proposed by Shankar [Phys. Rev. Lett. 63, 203 (1989)], describing the motion of holes in quantum antiferromagnets is equivalent to the Schwinger model [Phys. Rev. 128, 2425 (1962)] in 1+1 dimensions. Some exact results are deduced. In addition to the superconducting long-range order found by Shankar, it is shown that there is a 2pF hole density wave existing with the superconducting pairing instability.

    BAICheng-Lin; ZHAOHong


    In this paper, a new modified extended tanh-function method is presented for constructing soliton-like,periodic form solutions of nonlinear evolution equation (NEEs). This method is more powerful than the extended tanhfunction method [Phys. Lett. A277 (2000) 212] and the modified extended tanh-function method [Phys. Left. A285 (2001) 355]. Abundant new solutions of two physically important NEEs are obtained by using this method and symbolic computation system Maple.

    Following a recent proposal [C. Muschik et. al., Phys. Rev.

Here, we present additional material, further-reaching data and an extensio...

    Based on A.K. Pati's original idea [Phys. Rev. A 61 (2000) 022308] on single-qubit-state-assisted clone, very recently Zhan has proposed two assisted quantum cloning protocols of a special class of unknown two-qubit entangled states [Phys. Lett. A 336 (2005) 317]. In this paper we further generalize Zhan's protocols such that an arbitrary unknown two-qubit entangled state can be treated.

  4. Constraint for the Existence of Ellipsoidal Vesicles

    XIE Yu-Zhang


    Under the spontaneous curvature model of lipid bilayers, the constraints for the existence of equilibrium axisym metric oblate and prolate ellipsoidal vesicles are obtained from the general shape equation. They degenerate either to the constraint for the existence of a spherical vesicle or to that of a circular cylindrical vesicle given by Ou-Yang and Helfrich [Phys. Rev. Lett. 59 (1987) 2486; 60(1988)120; Phys. Rev. A 39 (1989) 5280].

  5. A New Formula to Obtain Exact Green's Functions of Time-Dependent Schr(o)dinger Equation

    Axel Schulze-Halberg


    We obtain a new relation between Green's functions of the time-dependent Schrodinger equation for stationary potentials and Green's functions of the same equation for certain time-dependent potentials. The relation obtained here emerges very easily from a transformation introduced by Ray [J.R. Ray, Phys. Rev. A26 (1982) 729] and generalizes former work of Dodonov et al. [V. V. Dodonov, V.I. Man'ko, and D.E. Nikonov, Phys. Lett. A162 (1992)359.

Rev. Lett. 78 (1997) 413; Phys. Rev. E56 (1998) 2793; E57 (1998) 5013) and obtain accurate closed-form approximations of the critical lines of anisotropic Ising ferromagnets on these lattices.

The derived transformations cover the previous contributions [Delgado Y,Lamata L et al,2007 Phys. Rev. Lett. 98 150502] in which M must be odd.

    Recently, the inelastic neutron scattering experiments of UPd 2Al 3 showed that a sharp peak indicating a magnetic excitation appears below the superconducting phase transition temperature (M. Metoki et al., J. Phys. Soc. Japan 66 (1997) 2560, N. Bernhoeft et al., Phys. Rev. Lett. 81 (1998) 4244). Assuming this excitation to be an antiferromagnetic (AFM) spin wave, this paper deals with its enhancement by the superconductivity.

  19. Particle filters on light diesel vehicles - a socio-economic analysis on the introduction of particle filters; Partikelfiltre pae lette dieselkoeretoejer - en samfundsoekonomisk analyse af fremskyndelse af partikelfiltre

    Kohl, M.; Larsen, Thommy; Carlsen, Kirsten; Mulvad Jeppesen, L.


    Emission of particles into the atmosphere is one of the biggest air pollution problems of our times. The emission of particles causes severe health problems such as respiratory and circulatory diseases, lung cancer, asthma, bronchitis and even causes premature deaths. The emission of particles comes from a number of different sources, where traffic is a considerable contributor. The effects of particle emissions from the traffic on the population are substantial, as the emission comes from mobile sources which create a high local pollution in city areas and in consequence high exposure of the local population. Exhaust particle emissions come mainly from diesel engines, and the introduction of particle filters would have a considerable impact on particle emissions. Vehicle emissions regulation is controlled by the EU. The coming emission regulation, EURO 5, is expected to be put into effect by the beginning of 2010. The current suggestions for the EURO 5 restrictions on particles are set so strict that they will be impossible to fulfil without a particle filter. This report performs a socio-economic analysis on the introduction of particle filters on all light vehicles (<3,500 kg). The analysis assumes that all newly registered diesel powered cars and vans should have a factory installed particle filter from the beginning of 2007. This thereby gives a period of three years before implementation of the EURO 5. (au)

Thus, these corrections don't affect the discussion and conclusions presented in this study.

  1. A technique for producing an easily ignitable hearth log or flare log; Fremgangsmaate til fremstilling av en lett antennbar peis- eller fakkelkubbe

    Koxvold, L.F.


    In this invention, a fresh wood log is cut to a length of 15-30 cm. A hole is bored centrally down the log axis until 4-7 cm above the end. The upper half of the hole is worked into a conical shape. A hole is bored from the side of the log, gently sloping down until it meets the bottom of the central hole. A wick is placed in the side hole and pushed in until it hits the opposite side of the central hole. Liquid paraffin is carefully poured in from above to fill the lower part of the central hole until it almost runs out of the side hole and then allowed to set. The log is put aside to dry, preferably by air drying, for 3-6 months. The condition that the wood should be fresh prevents the paraffin from impregnating the wood by filling its pores. Tests have shown that the flame is large and yet long-lasting and the combustion is unusually complete. Potential applications include kindling, wood for an open hearth, boiling. 2 figs.

    We have reconstructed past modes of the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (AMOC) by combining two sedimentary proxies, Nd isotopes (εNd) and the 231Pa/230Th ratio over the last deglaciation. Combined down-core 231Pa/230Th and εNd records from six Atlantic Ocean sediment archives are presented (Lippold et al., 2016).

  5. Corrigendum to "A redox-stratified ocean 3.2 billion years ago" [Earth Planet. Sci. Lett. 430 (2015) 43-53

    Satkoski, Aaron M.; Beukes, Nicolas J.; Li, Weiqiang; Beard, Brian L.; Johnson, Clark M.


    The authors have discovered a calculation error in the concentration data for U, Th and Pb. This error does not affect any measured isotopic compositions: 206Pb/204Pb, 207Pb/204Pb, 238U/204Pb, 232Th/204Pb, and 235U/204Pb; these all remain the same. None of the Fe isotope data are affected. Hence, none of the conclusions for open or closed-system U-Th-Pb behavior are affected, nor the conclusions of a redox gradient between shallow- and deep-water U contents. The magnitude of the shallow- and deep-water U content contrast remains the same, where U contents in shallow seawater are estimated to have been about three times that of deep-water samples.

    The authors have corrected a few minor mistakes that appear in Table 2, that is, four ε 54Cr values have been updated (JP-1, Bremervörde, Kernouve and Saint-Severin). These minor changes do not affect the figures or the conclusions of the article.

  7. Collective modes at the fractional quantum Hall edge

    Joglekar, Yogesh; Murthy, Ganpathy


    The fractional quantum Hall edge has been a continuing source of new ideas [1] and experimental results [2] for some time. Most theoretical approaches start with an effective bosonic theory [1] in which all fermions have been integrated out (an exception is the approach based on Chern-Simons theory [3]). Our approach is based on the lowest Landau level Hamiltonian theory of the FQHE [4]. In this theory, composite fermions are fully interacting, and We obtain the collective modes using a conserving approximation which respects the constraints. We present the edge-mode dispersions for various simple fractions. 1. X.-G.Wen, Phys. Rev. Lett. 64, 2206 (1990); A.Lopez and E.Fradkin, Phys. Rev. B 59, 15323 (1999); U.

  8. QCD breaks Lorentz invariance and colour

    Balachandran, A. P.


    In the previous work [A. P. Balachandran and S. Vaidya, Eur. Phys. J. Plus 128, 118 (2013)], we have argued that the algebra of non-Abelian superselection rules is spontaneously broken to its maximal Abelian subalgebra, that is, the algebra generated by its completing commuting set (the two Casimirs, isospin and a basis of its Cartan subalgebra). In this paper, alternative arguments confirming these results are presented. In addition, Lorentz invariance is shown to be broken in quantum chromodynamics (QCD), just as it is in quantum electrodynamics (QED). The experimental consequences of these results include fuzzy mass and spin shells of coloured particles like quarks, and decay life times which depend on the frame of observation [D. Buchholz, Phys. Lett. B 174, 331 (1986); D. Buchholz and K. Fredenhagen, Commun. Math. Phys. 84, 1 (1982; J. Fröhlich, G. Morchio and F. Strocchi, Phys. Lett. B 89, 61 (1979); A. P. Balachandran, S. Kürkçüoğlu, A. R. de Queiroz and S. Vaidya, Eur. Phys. J. C 75, 89 (2015); A. P. Balachandran, S. Kürkçüoğlu and A. R. de Queiroz, Mod. Phys. Lett. A 28, 1350028 (2013)]. In a paper under preparation, these results are extended to the ADM Poincaré group and the local Lorentz group of frames. The renormalisation of the ADM energy by infrared gravitons is also studied and estimated.

    It was shown recently that one can improve the efficiency of the Otto cycle by taking advantage of the internal degrees of freedom of an ideal gas [M. O. Scully, “The Quantum Afterburner”, Phys. Rev. Lett., to be published]. Here we discuss the limiting improvement of the efficiency by considering reversible cycles with both internal and external degrees of freedom.

  14. Full density-matrix numerical renormalization group calculation of impurity susceptibility and specific heat of the Anderson impurity model

    Merker, L.; Weichselbaum, A.; Costi, T. A.


    Recent developments in the numerical renormalization group (NRG) allow the construction of the full density matrix (FDM) of quantum impurity models [see A. Weichselbaum and J. von Delft, Phys. Rev. Lett.PRLTAO0031-900710.1103/PhysRevLett.99.076402 99, 076402 (2007)] by using the completeness of the eliminated states introduced by F. B. Anders and A. Schiller [F. B. Anders and A. Schiller, Phys. Rev. Lett.PRLTAO0031-900710.1103/PhysRevLett.95.196801 95, 196801 (2005)]. While these developments prove particularly useful in the calculation of transient response and finite-temperature Green's functions of quantum impurity models, they may also be used to calculate thermodynamic properties. In this paper, we assess the FDM approach to thermodynamic properties by applying it to the Anderson impurity model. We compare the results for the susceptibility and specific heat to both the conventional approach within NRG and to exact Bethe ansatz results. We also point out a subtlety in the calculation of the susceptibility (in a uniform field) within the FDM approach. Finally, we show numerically that for the Anderson model, the susceptibilities in response to a local and a uniform magnetic field coincide in the wide-band limit, in accordance with the Clogston-Anderson compensation theorem.

Based on the derived multi-soliton-like solutions which contain arbitrary functions, some interesting multi-soliton structures are revealed.

    We report the first state-independent experimental test of quantum contextuality on a single photonic qutrit (three-dimensional system), based on a recent theoretical proposal [Phys. Rev.

  7. Renormalization Group Flows of Hamiltonians Using Tensor Networks

    Bal, M.; Mariën, M.; Haegeman, J.; Verstraete, F.


    A renormalization group flow of Hamiltonians for two-dimensional classical partition functions is constructed using tensor networks. Similar to tensor network renormalization [G. Evenbly and G. Vidal, Phys. Rev. Lett. 115, 180405 (2015), 10.1103/PhysRevLett.115.180405; S. Yang, Z.-C. Gu, and X.-G. Wen, Phys. Rev. Lett. 118, 110504 (2017), 10.1103/PhysRevLett.118.110504], we obtain approximate fixed point tensor networks at criticality. Our formalism, however, preserves positivity of the tensors at every step and hence yields an interpretation in terms of Hamiltonian flows. We emphasize that the key difference between tensor network approaches and Kadanoff's spin blocking method can be understood in terms of a change of the local basis at every decimation step, a property which is crucial to overcome the area law of mutual information. We derive algebraic relations for fixed point tensors, calculate critical exponents, and benchmark our method on the Ising model and the six-vertex model.

  10. Equivalence of the measures of non-Markovianity for open two-level systems

    Zeng, Hao-Sheng; Tang, Ning; Zheng, Yan-Ping; Wang, Guo-You


    Different measures have been presented to depict the deviation of quantum time evolution in open systems from Markovian processes. We demonstrate that the measure proposed by Breuer, Laine, and Piilo [Phys. Rev. Lett.PRLTAO0031-900710.1103/PhysRevLett.103.210401 103, 210401 (2009)] and the two measures proposed by Rivas, Huelga, and Plenio [Phys. Rev. Lett.PRLTAO0031-900710.1103/PhysRevLett.105.050403 105, 050403 (2010)] have exactly the same non-Markovian time-evolution intervals and thus are really equivalent to each other when they are applied to open two-level systems coupled to environments via the Jaynes-Cummings or dephasing models. This equivalence implies that the three measures, in different ways, capture the intrinsic character of the non-Markovianity of quantum evolutional processes. We also show that the maximization in the definition of the first measure can be actually removed for the considered models without influencing the sensibility of the measure to detect non-Markovianity.

As well known, not taking into account decoherence results in an overestimated measurement precision, and this is the case at hand.

We point out the loophole in the recent argument (A Bramon and M Nowakowski, Phys. Rev. Lett. 83, 1 (1999)) that claimed such a test to be possible.

  18. Deriving Lindblad master equations with Keldysh diagrams: Correlated gain and loss in higher order perturbation theory

    Müller, Clemens; Stace, Thomas M.


    Motivated by correlated decay processes producing gain, loss, and lasing in driven semiconductor quantum dots [Phys. Rev. Lett. 113, 036801 (2014), 10.1103/PhysRevLett.113.036801; Science 347, 285 (2015), 10.1126/science.aaa2501; Phys. Rev. Lett. 114, 196802 (2015), 10.1103/PhysRevLett.114.196802], we develop a theoretical technique by using Keldysh diagrammatic perturbation theory to derive a Lindblad master equation that goes beyond the usual second-order perturbation theory. We demonstrate the method on the driven dissipative Rabi model, including terms up to fourth order in the interaction between the qubit and both the resonator and environment. This results in a large class of Lindblad dissipators and associated rates which go beyond the terms that have previously been proposed to describe similar systems. All of the additional terms contribute to the system behavior at the same order of perturbation theory. We then apply these results to analyze the phonon-assisted steady-state gain of a microwave field driving a double quantum dot in a resonator. We show that resonator gain and loss are substantially affected by dephasing-assisted dissipative processes in the quantum-dot system. These additional processes, which go beyond recently proposed polaronic theories, are in good quantitative agreement with experimental observations.

    The effect of decoherence, induced by spontaneous emission, on the dynamics of periodically kicked cold atoms at quantum resonance is experimentally and theoretically studied. We clarify the nature of the coherent evolution, and the way in which decoherence disrupts it, thereby resolving the puzzle of the observed enhancement of the atomic mean energy growth by decoherence [Phys.

  17. Almost-quantum correlations and their refinements in a tripartite Bell scenario

    Vallins, James; Sainz, Ana Belén; Liang, Yeong-Cherng


    We study the set of almost-quantum correlations and their refinements in the simplest tripartite Bell scenario where each party is allowed to perform two dichotomic measurements. In contrast to its bipartite counterpart, we find that there already exist facet Bell inequalities that witness almost-quantum correlations beyond quantum theory in this simplest tripartite Bell scenario. Furthermore, we study the relation between the almost-quantum set and the hierarchy of supersets to the quantum set due to Navascués-Pironio-Acín (NPA) [Phys. Rev. Lett. 98, 010401 (2007), 10.1103/PhysRevLett.98.010401]. While the former lies between the first and the third level of the NPA hierarchy, we find that its second level does not contain and is not contained within the almost-quantum set. Finally, we investigate the hierarchy of refinements to the almost-quantum set due to Moroder et al. [Phys. Rev. Lett. 111, 030501 (2013), 10.1103/PhysRevLett.111.030501], which converges to the set of quantum correlations producible by quantum states having positive partial transposition. This allows us to consider (approximations of) the "biseparable" subsets of the almost-quantum set as well as of the quantum set of correlations, and thereby gain further insights into the subtle similarities and differences between the two sets. In addition, they allow us to identify candidate Bell-like inequalities that can serve as device-independent witnesses for genuine tripartite entanglement.

The distribution function of decoherence timespreads more widely as the amplitude of the random field is decreased, hence it is dirficult to define a decoherencetime for the system.

  11. Crystal-structure prediction via the Floppy-Box Monte Carlo algorithm: Method and application to hard (non)convex particles

    de Graaf, Joost; Filion, Laura; Marechal, Matthieu; van Roij, René; Dijkstra, Marjolein


    In this paper, we describe the way to set up the floppy-box Monte Carlo (FBMC) method [L. Filion, M. Marechal, B. van Oorschot, D. Pelt, F. Smallenburg, and M. Dijkstra, Phys. Rev. Lett. 103, 188302 (2009), 10.1103/PhysRevLett.103.188302] to predict crystal-structure candidates for colloidal particles. The algorithm is explained in detail to ensure that it can be straightforwardly implemented on the basis of this text. The handling of hard-particle interactions in the FBMC algorithm is given special attention, as (soft) short-range and semi-long-range interactions can be treated in an analogous way. We also discuss two types of algorithms for checking for overlaps between polyhedra, the method of separating axes and a triangular-tessellation based technique. These can be combined with the FBMC method to enable crystal-structure prediction for systems composed of highly shape-anisotropic particles. Moreover, we present the results for the dense crystal structures predicted using the FBMC method for 159 (non)convex faceted particles, on which the findings in [J. de Graaf, R. van Roij, and M. Dijkstra, Phys. Rev. Lett. 107, 155501 (2011), 10.1103/PhysRevLett.107.155501] were based. Finally, we comment on the process of crystal-structure prediction itself and the choices that can be made in these simulations.

  13. Understanding the dynamics of photoionization-induced nonlinear effects and solitons in gas-filled hollow-core photonic crystal fibers

    Saleh, Mohammed F.; Biancalana, Fabio


    We present the details of our previously formulated model [Saleh , Phys. Rev. Lett.PRLTAO0031-900710.1103/PhysRevLett.107.203902 107, 203902 (2011)] that governs pulse propagation in hollow-core photonic crystal fibers filled by an ionizable gas. By using perturbative methods, we find that the photoionization process induces the opposite phenomenon of the well-known Raman self-frequency redshift of solitons in solid-core glass fibers, as was recently experimentally demonstrated [Hölzer , Phys. Rev. Lett.PRLTAO0031-900710.1103/PhysRevLett.107.203901 107, 203901 (2011)]. This process is only limited by ionization losses, and leads to a constant acceleration of solitons in the time domain with a continuous blueshift in the frequency domain. By applying the Gagnon-Bélanger gauge transformation, multipeak “inverted gravitylike” solitary waves are predicted. We also demonstrate that the pulse dynamics shows the ejection of solitons during propagation in such fibers, analogous to what happens in conventional solid-core fibers. Moreover, unconventional long-range nonlocal interactions between temporally distant solitons, unique of gas plasma systems, are predicted and studied. Finally, the effects of higher-order dispersion coefficients and the shock operator on the pulse dynamics are investigated, showing that the conversion efficiency of resonant radiation into the deep UV can be improved via plasma formation.

  16. Bounds on the Number and Size of Extra Dimensions from Molecular Spectroscopy

    Salumbides, Edcel John; Schellekens, Bert; Gato-Rivera, Beatriz; Ubachs, Wim


    Modern string theories, which seek to produce a consistent description of physics beyond the Standard Model that also includes the gravitational interaction, appear to be most consistent if a large number of dimensions are postulated. For example the mysterious M-theory, which generalizes all consistent versions of superstring theories, require 11 dimensions. We demonstrate that investigations of quantum level energies in simple molecular systems provide a testing ground to constrain the size of compactified extra dimensions, for example those proposed in the ADD [1] and RS scenarios [2]. This is made possible by the recent progress in precision metrology with ultrastable lasers on energy levels in neutral molecular hydrogen (H_2, HD and D_2) [3] and the molecular hydrogen ions (H_2^+, HD^+ and D_2^+) [4]. Comparisons between experiment and quantum electrodynamics calculations for these molecular systems can be interpreted in terms of probing large extra dimensions, under which conditions gravity will become much stronger. Molecules are a probe of space-time geometry at typical distances where chemical bonds are effective, i.e. at length scales of an Å. [1] N. Arkani-Hamed, S. Dimopoulos and G. Dvali, Phys. Lett.

    Sarma, Amarendra K


    We investigate the modulational instability of a mathematical model [based on the model proposed by T. Brabec and F. Krausz, Phys.Rev. Lett. 78, 3282(1997)] appropriate for few cycle optical pulses with pulse duration as short as one carrier oscillation cycle in the context of a standard silica fiber operating at the telecommunication wavelength 1550 nm.

  1. Renormalization Group Flows of Hamiltonians Using Tensor Networks.

    Bal, M; Mariën, M; Haegeman, J; Verstraete, F


    A renormalization group flow of Hamiltonians for two-dimensional classical partition functions is constructed using tensor networks. Similar to tensor network renormalization [G. Evenbly and G. Vidal, Phys. Rev. Lett. 115, 180405 (2015)PRLTAO0031-900710.1103/PhysRevLett.115.180405; S. Yang, Z.-C. Gu, and X.-G. Wen, Phys. Rev. Lett. 118, 110504 (2017)PRLTAO0031-900710.1103/PhysRevLett.118.110504], we obtain approximate fixed point tensor networks at criticality. Our formalism, however, preserves positivity of the tensors at every step and hence yields an interpretation in terms of Hamiltonian flows. We emphasize that the key difference between tensor network approaches and Kadanoff's spin blocking method can be understood in terms of a change of the local basis at every decimation step, a property which is crucial to overcome the area law of mutual information. We derive algebraic relations for fixed point tensors, calculate critical exponents, and benchmark our method on the Ising model and the six-vertex model.

  2. Tailoring Chirp in Spin-Lasers

    Lee, Jeongsu; Boeris, Guilhem; Vyborny, Karel; Zutic, Igor


    The interplay of spin injection in lasers and their nonlinear response leads to novel spintronic devices [1]. Such spin-lasers can enable desirable properties including threshold reduction, bandwidth enhancement, and low chirp [1-3]. These lasers can also be viewed as spin-amplifiers, since high circular polarization in the output can be achieved even with nearly spin-unpolarized injection [2,3]. In the present work, we study chirp in spin-lasers and suggest new modulation schemes to improve their performance. Supported by NSF-ECCS, U.S. ONR, AFOSR-DCT, and NSF-NEB 2020. [4pt] [1] M.

  3. Further comment on pion electroproduction and the axial form factor

    Bernard, V; Meißner, Ulf G; Mei{\\ss}ner, Ulf-G.


    We show that a recent claim (H.Haberzettl, Phys. Rev. Lett. 85 (2000) 3576) that one cannot extract the nucleon weak axial form factor G_A (t) from charged pion threshold electroproduction is incorrect. Thus previous calculations remain valid and threshold charged pion electroproduction experiments can indeed be used to determine G_A (t), and they should certainly be pursued.

  4. Reply to "Comment about pion electroproduction and the axial form factors"

    Haberzettl, H


    It is shown that comments by Guichon [hep-ph/0012126], and also by Bernard, Kaiser, and Mei{\\ss}ner [hep-ph/0101062], regarding my recent criticism [Phys. Rev. Lett. 85, 3576 (2000)] of how the axial form factor is supposed to enter pion electroproduction do not address the main point of my argument and therefore are irrelevant.

    Cabello, Adán; Kleinmann, Matthias; Budroni, Costantino


    We solve the problem of whether a set of quantum tests reveals state-independent contextuality and use this result to identify the simplest set of the minimal dimension. We also show that identifying state-independent contextuality graphs [R. Ramanathan and P. Horodecki, Phys. Rev. Lett. 112, 040404 (2014)] is not sufficient for revealing state-independent contextuality.

    Marques, Breno; Ahrens, Johan; Nawareg, Mohamed; Cabello, Adán; Bourennane, Mohamed


    Contextuality is a fundamental property of quantum theory and a critical resource for quantum computation. Here, we experimentally observe the arguably cleanest form of contextuality in quantum theory [A. Cabello et al., Phys. Rev. Lett. 111, 180404 (2013)] by implementing a novel method for performing two sequential measurements on heralded photons. This method opens the door to a variety of fundamental experiments and applications.

Lett. 67, p.318 (1991) ] showing interference effects within multi-particle entanglement without coincidence detection, we propose a feasible quantum-optical scheme that purports to manifest the capacity for superluminal transfer of information between distant parties.

    This paper presents updated estimates of source parameters for GW150914, a binary black-hole coalescence event detected by the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory (LIGO) in 2015 [Abbott et al. Phys. Rev. Lett. 116, 061102 (2016).]. Abbott et al. [Phys. Rev. Lett. 116, 241102 (2016).] presented parameter estimation of the source using a 13-dimensional, phenomenological precessing-spin model (precessing IMRPhenom) and an 11-dimensional nonprecessing effective-one-body (EOB) model calibrated to numerical-relativity simulations, which forces spin alignment (nonprecessing EOBNR). Here, we present new results that include a 15-dimensional precessing-spin waveform model (precessing EOBNR) developed within the EOB formalism. We find good agreement with the parameters estimated previously [Abbott et al. Phys. Rev. Lett. 116, 241102 (2016).], and we quote updated component masses of 35-3+5 M⊙ and 3 0-4+3 M⊙ (where errors correspond to 90% symmetric credible intervals). We also present slightly tighter constraints on the dimensionless spin magnitudes of the two black holes, with a primary spin estimate <0.65 and a secondary spin estimate <0.75 at 90% probability. Abbott et al. [Phys. Rev. Lett. 116, 241102 (2016).] estimated the systematic parameter-extraction errors due to waveform-model uncertainty by combining the posterior probability densities of precessing IMRPhenom and nonprecessing EOBNR. Here, we find that the two precessing-spin models are in closer agreement, suggesting that these systematic errors are smaller than previously quoted.

    In Phys. Lett.

In this work we study Hankel transforms and properties of Bessel function via entangled state representations' transformation in quantum mechanics.

  20. Indirect study of 11B(p,α)8Be and 10B(p,α)7Be reactions at astrophysical energies by means of the Trojan Horse Method: recent results

    Lamia, L.; Puglia, S. M. R.; Spitaleri, C.; Romano, S.; Del Santo, M. Gimenez; Carlin, N.; Munhoz, M. Gameiro; Cherubini, S.; Kiss, G. G.; Kroha, V.; Kubono, S.; La Cognata, M.; Li, Cheng-Bo; Pizzone, R. G.; Wen, Qun-Gang; Sergi, M. L.; Szanto de Toledo, A.; Wakabayashi, Y.; Yamaguchi, H.; Zhou, Shu-Hua


    Nuclear (p,α) reactions destroying the so-called “light-elements” lithium, beryllium and boron have been largely studied in the past mainly because their role in understanding some astrophysical phenomena, i.e. mixing-phenomena occurring in young F-G stars [A.M. Boesgaard et al., Astr. Phys. J, 991, 2005, 621]. Such mechanisms transport the surface material down to the region close to the nuclear destruction zone, where typical temperatures of the order of ˜106 K are reached. The corresponding Gamow energy E=1.22(Z keV [C. Rolfs and W. Rodney, “Cauldrons in the Cosmos”, The Univ. of Chicago press, 1988] is about ˜10 keV if one considers the “boron-case” and replaces in the previous formula Z=1, Z=5 and T=5. Direct measurements of the two 11B(p,α)8Be and 10B(p,α)7Be reactions in correspondence of this energy region are difficult to perform mainly because the combined effects of Coulomb barrier penetrability and electron screening [H.J. Assenbaum, K. Langanke and C. Rolfs, Z. Phys., 327, 1987, 461]. The indirect method of the Trojan Horse (THM) [G. Baur et al., Phys. Lett. B, 178, 1986, 135; G. Calvi et al., Nucl. Phys. A, 621, 1997, 139; C. Spitaleri et al., Phys. Rev. C, 493, 1999, 206] allows one to extract the two-body reaction cross section of interest for astrophysics without the extrapolation-procedures. Due to the THM formalism, the extracted indirect data have to be normalized to the available direct ones at higher energies thus implying that the method is a complementary tool in solving some still open questions for both nuclear and astrophysical issues [S. Cherubini et al., Astr. Phys. J, 457, 1996, 855; C. Spitaleri et al., Phys. Rev. C, 63, 2001, 005801; C. Spitaleri et al., Phys. Rev. C, 63, 2004, 055806; A. Tumino et al., Phys. Rev.

  1. High Tc: The Discovery of RBCO

    Chu, C. W.


    It was said by Emerson that ``there is no history; there is only biography.'' This is especially true when the events are recounted by a person who, himself, has been heavily involved and the line between history and autobiography can become blurred. However, it is reasonable to say that discovery itself is not a series of accidents but an inevitable product of each development stage of scientific knowledge as was also pointed out by Holden et al. (1) The discovery of RBCO (2,3) with R = Y, La, Nd, Sm, Eu, Gd, Tb, Dy, Ho, Er, Tm, Yb, and Lu is no exception. In this presentation, I will briefly recount several events that were crucial to the discovery of RBCO: those before 1986 (4) that sowed the seeds in our group important to our later high temperature superconductivity effort; those in 1986 (5) that were critical to our discovery of the 93 K RBCO soon after the discovery of the 35 K high temperature superconductor by M"uller and Bednorz (6); and those in 1987 when the barrier of the liquid nitrogen boiling temperature of 77 K was finally conquered. 1.

  2. Analytical solutions of the two-dimensional Dirac equation for a topological channel intersection

    Anglin, J. R.; Schulz, A.


    Numerical simulations in a tight-binding model have shown that an intersection of topologically protected one-dimensional chiral channels can function as a beam splitter for noninteracting fermions on a two-dimensional lattice [Qiao, Jung, and MacDonald, Nano Lett. 11, 3453 (2011), 10.1021/nl201941f; Qiao et al., Phys. Rev. Lett. 112, 206601 (2014), 10.1103/PhysRevLett.112.206601]. Here we confirm this result analytically in the corresponding continuum k .p model, by solving the associated two-dimensional Dirac equation, in the presence of a "checkerboard" potential that provides a right-angled intersection between two zero-line modes. The method by which we obtain our analytical solutions is systematic and potentially generalizable to similar problems involving intersections of one-dimensional systems.

  11. QED radiative corrections for elastic e (μ) p scattering in hadronic variables

    Akhundov, A. A.; Alharbi, H. H.; Alhendi, H. A.


    A numerical analysis of QED radiative corrections for elastic e (μ) p scattering in hadronic variables at energies of the current experiment at JLab is performed. The explicit formulas from the review of Akhundov et al. [Fortschr. Phys.44, 373 (1996)] resulting from the integration over the phase space of leptonic variables plus photon are used to obtain the values of the cross sections and the radiative correction factor for unpolarized lepton-proton scattering. Our numerical results agree with the corresponding results arising from the formulas of Afanasev et al. [Phys. Lett. B514, 269 (2001); Phys. Rev. D64, 113009 (2001)].

  12. Optimal Universal Uncertainty Relations

    Li, Tao; Xiao, Yunlong; Ma, Teng; Fei, Shao-Ming; Jing, Naihuan; Li-Jost, Xianqing; Wang, Zhi-Xi


    We study universal uncertainty relations and present a method called joint probability distribution diagram to improve the majorization bounds constructed independently in [Phys. Rev. Lett. 111, 230401 (2013)] and [J. Phys. A. 46, 272002 (2013)]. The results give rise to state independent uncertainty relations satisfied by any nonnegative Schur-concave functions. On the other hand, a remarkable recent result of entropic uncertainty relation is the direct-sum majorization relation. In this paper, we illustrate our bounds by showing how they provide a complement to that in [Phys. Rev. A. 89, 052115 (2014)]. PMID:27775010

  14. Classical universe emerging from quantum cosmology without horizon and flatness problems

    We apply the complex de Broglie-Bohm formulation of quantum mechanics in Chou and Wyatt (Phys Rev A 76: 012115, 2007), Gozzi (Phys Lett B 165: 351, 1985), Bhalla et al. (Am J Phys 65: 1187, 1997) to a spatially closed homogeneous and isotropic early universe whose matter contents are radiation and dust perfect fluids. We then show that an expanding classical universe can emerge from an oscillating (with complex scale factor) quantum universe without singularity. Furthermore, the universe obtained in this process has no horizon or flatness problems. (orig.)

  15. Comment on "Scaling properties of information-theoretic quantities in density functional reactivity theory" by C. Rong, T. Lu, P. W. Ayers, P. K. Chattaraj and S. Liu, Phys. Chem. Chem. Phys., 2015, 17, 4977-4988.

    Bohórquez, Hugo J


    The scaling properties of density functionals are key for fundamentally understanding density functional theory. Accordingly, the dependence of density functionals on the number of particles is of paramount relevance. The numerical exploration by Rong et al. addressed N-scaling for a set of quantum information quantities; they found linear relationships between each one of them and the electronic population for atoms, molecules, and atoms in molecules. The main motivation for their computational work was that the theoretical scaling of these quantities is unknown; however, these scaling properties can be analytically determined. Here I reveal the derivation of the N-scaling rules for the quantities studied by Rong et al. by following the procedure introduced in Comput. Theor. Chem., 2015, 1053, 38. In addition, a new atomic scaling rule explains the linear relationship between atomic populations and atomic values of the same quantum information quantities.

  16. Withdrawal notice to: Local causality in a Friedmann-Robertson-Walker spacetime [Ann. Phys. 373 (2016) 67-79

    Christian, Joy


    This article has been withdrawn at the request of the Editors. Soon after the publication of this paper was announced, several experts in the field contacted the Editors to report errors. After extensive review, the Editors unanimously concluded that the results are in obvious conflict with a proven scientific fact, i.e., violation of local realism that has been demonstrated not only theoretically but experimentally in recent experiments. On this basis, the Editors decided to withdraw the paper. As a consequence, pages 67-79 originally occupied by the withdrawn article are missing from the printed issue. The publisher apologizes for any inconvenience this may cause. The full Elsevier Policy on Article Withdrawal can be found at

  18. PHYS: Division of Physical Chemistry 258 - Properties and Origins of Cometary and Asteroidal Organic Matter Delivered to the Early Earth

    Messenger, Scott; Nguyen, Ann


    Comets and asteroids may have contributed much of the Earth's water and organic matter. The Earth accretes approximately 4x10(exp 7) Kg of dust and meteorites from these sources every year. The least altered meteorites contain complex assemblages of organic compounds and abundant hydrated minerals. These carbonaceous chondrite meteorites probably derive from asteroids that underwent hydrothermal processing within the first few million years after their accretion. Meteorite organics show isotopic and chemical signatures of low-T ion-molecule and grain-surface chemistry and photolysis of icy grains that occurred in cold molecular clouds and the outer protoplanetary disk. These signatures have been overprinted by aqueously mediated chemistry in asteroid parent bodies, forming amino acids and other prebiotic molecules. Comets are much richer in organic matter but it is less well characterized. Comet dust collected in the stratosphere shows larger H and N isotopic anomalies than most meteorites, suggesting better preservation of primordial organics. Rosetta studies of comet 67P coma dust find complex organic matter that may be related to the macromolecular material that dominates the organic inventory of primitive meteorites. The exogenous organic material accreting on Earth throughout its history is made up of thousands of molecular species formed in diverse processes ranging from circumstellar outflows to chemistry at near absolute zero in dark cloud cores and the formative environment within minor planets. NASA and JAXA are currently flying sample return missions to primitive, potentially organic-rich asteroids. The OSIRIS-REx and Hayabusa2 missions will map their target asteroids, Bennu and Ryugu, in detail and return regolith samples to Earth. Laboratory analyses of these pristine asteroid samples will provide unprecedented views of asteroidal organic matter relatively free of terrestrial contamination within well determined geological context. Studies of extraterrestrial materials and returned samples are essential to understand the origins of Solar System organic material and the roles of comets and asteroids to providing the starting materials for the emergence of life.

  19. Comment on "Classification of Cosmic Scale Factor via Noether Gauge Symmetries" [Int. J. Theor. Phys. 54, 2343 (2015)

    Paliathanasis, A.; Krishnakumar, K.; Leach, P. G. L.


    We discuss the relationship between the Noether point symmetries of the geodesic Lagrangian, in a (pseudo)Riemannian manifold, with the elements of the Homothetic algebra of the space. We observe that the classification problem of the Noether symmetries for the geodesic Lagrangian is equivalent with the classification of the Homothetic algebra of the space, which in the case of a Friedmann-Lemaître-Robertson-Walker spacetime is a well-known result in the literature.
