Abstract   PDF(pc) (207KB) ( 408 )
The squeezing operator S(n) and the corresponding squeezed state |0>s for n-mode quadrature operators are founded. The normally ordered form of S(n) is derived by means of the technique of integration within an ordered product of operators. Moreover, the existence of higher-order squeezing for n-mode quadratures in the State |0>s is demonstrated.

Chin. Phys. Lett. 1999, 16 (7): 475-477 .  
Abstract   PDF(pc) (226KB) ( 450 )
A flashing correlation ratchet model is proposed, in which the transport of Brownian particles driven by additive colored noise of Ornstein-Uhlenbeck type in a flashing ratchet is studied by Monte Carlo simulation. The stationary current vs the noise strength and the correlation time is obtained and analyzed. For a fixed rate of potential flashing, the novel phenomena of current reversal and reentry occur. The conditions for the occurrence of these phenomena are found. The influence of the flipping rate is also discussed. This finding might be relevant to the fact that the protein motors with similar structure can move in opposite directions on the same kind of microtubule.

Abstract   PDF(pc) (294KB) ( 413 )
A new prototype atomic fountain clock working in the micro-gravity environment is proposed. The successive Ramsey interactions of cold atoms and oscillatory field are realized by means of computer-controlled periodic motion of oscillatory field while the cold atoms stay still relatively in the prototype. Preliminary analyses in comparison with the atomic fountain clock working on the ground show that higher stability is obtainable in the prototype.

YU Hong, SHEN Qi-xing
Chin. Phys. Lett. 1999, 16 (7): 484-486 .  
Abstract   PDF(pc) (219KB) ( 346 )
Does an exotic 1-+ hybrid candidate ρ (1405) in the vicinity of a2 (1320) exist? It is worth to confirm this state in the process J/ψ → ρηπ at the BEPC (Beijing Electron-Positron Collider)/BES (Beijing Spectrameter). Considering ρ (1405), a2 (1320) and a0 (1450) overlap in this mass region, the three-state coupling structure mode is discussed by using the generalized moment analysis method. A series of moments for the mode and a criterion are given for confirming the exotic 1-+ hybrid.

Abstract   PDF(pc) (189KB) ( 376 )
High-spin states in 84Rb have been studied by using the 70Zn (18O, p3n) 84Rb reaction at a beam energy of 75MeV. The γ- γ coincidence, excitation function and ratios for directional correlation of oriented states were performed. A new level scheme was established in which the positive and negative parity bands have been extended up to 17+ and 17- with excitation energy about 7MeV. The signature splitting and signature inversion of the positive parity yrast bands were observed and are discussed.

Abstract   PDF(pc) (293KB) ( 315 )
A general cascade package is used to handle the J/ψ and ψ production and absorption for different ET bins in S-U and Pb-Pb collisions. We study the combined effect of nuclear absorption and final state interaction with co-movers on the J/ψ and ψ suppression. The experimental data of J/ψ production can be fitted for different ET-bins in S-U collisions and for lower ET-bins in Pb-Pb collisions. However, ψ data for high ET-bins in both S-U and Pb-Pb collisions can not be explained.

Abstract   PDF(pc) (279KB) ( 315 )
The production of heavy-flavor quark c(c) and b(b) in pp collisions is described under perturbative quantum chromodynamics framework, the extrapolation from hadron-hadron up to nucleus-nucleus collisions is based on geometrical model by taking into account the nucleus shadowing effect. We simulate the heavy quark production, the decay to dilepton and effects of detection and analysis technique of the pairs, and predict the muon rate and the invariant mass spectrum of dimuons that could be detected in forward region in Pb-Pb collisions at large hadron collider energies.

Abstract   PDF(pc) (251KB) ( 415 )
Correlated fission fragments from the reaction of 25 MeV/u 40Ar+209Bi and their further correlation with a particles have been studied for peripheral and central collisions simultaneously. The excitation energy at scission deduced from postscission multiplicity is about 172.5 MeV. The fission timescale deduced from prescission multiplicity is about 4 x10-21 s. Systematic analysis of the mass and energy distributions of fission fragments as a function of the initial temperature of hot fissioning nuclei reveals the existence of different fission behavior of hot nuclei formed in central and peripheral collisions. Experimental data demonstrate the change of fission behavior at T ~ 4MeV.

Chin. Phys. Lett. 1999, 16 (7): 502-504 .  
Abstract   PDF(pc) (247KB) ( 394 )
By using the time-independent formal scattering theoretical approach, we develop a nonperturbative quantum electrodynamics theory to describe high-order harmonic generation (HHG). This theory recovers the semi-classical interpretation of Corkum (Phys. Rev. Lett. 71 (1993) 1994) and gives the same phenomenological cutoff law. The HHG emission rate is expressed as an analytic closed form. We also discuss the connection between HHG and the above threshold ionization from the scattering viewpoint.

Chin. Phys. Lett. 1999, 16 (7): 505-507 .  
Abstract   PDF(pc) (206KB) ( 568 )
Electron-induced Zn ionization cross sections, which are scarce, have been obtained from measurement of Kα x-ray emission at energies from near threshold to 25keV. The influence of substrate of thin target on ionization cross sections has been corrected by using the bipartition model of electron transport. The experimental results are satisfactory as compared with empirical formula of Green and Cosslett.

Chin. Phys. Lett. 1999, 16 (7): 513-515 .  
Abstract   PDF(pc) (206KB) ( 904 )
Based on theoretical and experimental studies on the optical properties of long-period gratings (LPGs), an erbium doped fiber amplifier (EDFA) gain equalizer was fabricated by writing three long period gratings with designed properties in hydrogen-loaded standard singlemode fibers. The LPGs were written by a KrF excimer laser at 248nm with amplitude masks. The gain variation of ±3dB in the EDFA is reduced to ±0.3dB with a bandwidth of 30nm and the total insertion loss of the device is less than 0.3dB.

Abstract   PDF(pc) (161KB) ( 313 )
An electrically tunable optical fibre Mach-Zehnder interferometer is reported, based on the magnetostrictive effect. The period and peak wavelength of the interference spectrum can be electrically tuned to match the International Telecommunication Union's standard wavelength grid and so it is promising to be used in dense wavelength division multiplexing technology.

CHENG Jian-chun, HAN Jun-bo, ZHANG Shu-yi, Yves Berthelot
Chin. Phys. Lett. 1999, 16 (7): 518-519 .  
Abstract   PDF(pc) (185KB) ( 277 )
Analyses of the anisotropic behavior of a fiber composite plate from the laser-generated ultrasonic Lamb waveforms propagating in different directions are presented by employing wavelet transform techniques. The time-frequency representation plots of the waveforms clearly exhibit the anisotropic behavior of the composite plate. The plots also indicate that the waveform mainly consists of three or four lower-order Lamb wave modes, and other higher-order modes can be neglected in extracting elastic stiffness properties by comparison of theory with experimental waveforms. The group velocity of each mode is calculated according to the group delay and the source-receiver distance.

ZHU Shao-ping, GU Pei-jun
Chin. Phys. Lett. 1999, 16 (7): 520-522 .  
Abstract   PDF(pc) (216KB) ( 478 )
An electron heat transport model is given for studying laser-to-x-ray conversion of inertial confinement fusion. The electron heat flux is derived based on a non-Maxwellian electron distribution, and the behavior of the heat flux is discussed. The effect of the non-Maxwellian electron distribution on inverse bremsstrahlung heating rate and electron-ion heat transfer rate are also included in the present model. The simulation results show that the effects of the non-Maxwellian electron distribution on laser absorption efficiency, laser-to-x-ray conversion efficiency and electron temperature in the coronal region are important.

Chin. Phys. Lett. 1999, 16 (7): 526-528 .  
Abstract   PDF(pc) (197KB) ( 386 )
The binding energies of excitons bound to neutral donors in two-dimensional (2D) semiconductors within the spherical-effective-mass approximation, which are nondegenerate energy bands, have been calculated by a varia-tional method for a relevant range of the effective electron-to-hole mass ratio σ. The ratio of the binding energy of a 2D exciton bound to a neutral donor to that of a 2D neutral donor is found to be from 0.58 to 0.10. In the limit of vanishing σ and large σ, the results agree fairly well with previous experimental results. The results of this approach are compared with those of earlier theories.

Chin. Phys. Lett. 1999, 16 (7): 529-531 .  
Abstract   PDF(pc) (197KB) ( 334 )
A new practical equation is derived from the Miller-Abrahams theory for different site-energies, and the temperature-dependent conductivity of Fibonacci lattice is calculated by a real-space renormalization-group approach. It is shown that there exist two types of temperature-dependent conductivity at low- and high-frequencies. Furthermore, it is found that the low-frequency conductivity oscillates dramatically with temperature.

Chin. Phys. Lett. 1999, 16 (7): 532-534 .  
Abstract   PDF(pc) (259KB) ( 520 )
The crystal structure of spinel FeCr2S4, which shows a semiconductor-metal transition and paramagnetic-ferrimagnetic transition at Tc = 170K , was determined by x-ray powder diffraction. It is found that the spinel FeCr2S4 belongs to a normal spinel structure [Fe2+]t[Cr3+2]oS4. The result clearly shows that the spinel FeCr2S4 has neither mixed valence of Fe3+ and Fe2+ ions or Cr3+ and Cr2+ ions for a double-exchange magnetic interaction, nor a Jahn-Teller cation such as Cr3+. The spinels represent a distinct class of colossal magnetoresistance materials, with magnetic ordering driven by superexchange rather than double exchange.

Abstract   PDF(pc) (259KB) ( 407 )
A quantum well controller (QWC) consisting of a direct-gap/indirect-gap quantum well and a doping interface is proposed to control the dynamic operation of the Gunn active layer. Through the Monte Carlo simulation a new relaxation mode for this new device is found. The oscillation and amplification behavior of the Gunn active layer under the control of the QWC is investigated theoretically and experimentally. All work demonstrates the great control capacity of the QWC and provides a new way to improve the performance of semiconductor devices. A new oscillation diode made of the QWC and a Gunn active layer has been designed and fabricated. In the 8mm band the highest pulse output power of these diodes is 2.55 Wand the highest conversion efficiency is 18%.

Chin. Phys. Lett. 1999, 16 (7): 538-540 .  
Abstract   PDF(pc) (223KB) ( 366 )
Two kinds of alignment of two neighboring organic ferromagnetic chains are studied with Su-Schrieffer-Heeger Hamiltonian added by Hubbard repulsion and antiferromagnetic correlation between side radicals and main chain. The results show that interchain coupling makes the energy gap decreasing. The out-of-phase alignment of two chains is energetically preferred to the in-phase alignment and it is a more possible ferromagnetic structure if the oscillatory part of interchain coupling of the in-phase is small. The spin density and dimerization along the main chain are also discussed.

Chin. Phys. Lett. 1999, 16 (7): 541-543 .  
Abstract   PDF(pc) (253KB) ( 310 )
A coherent inverse Compton scattering (ICS) mechanism is used to get polarization properties of radio emission of pulsars. It is found that particles moving along a ring with radius θ' = l/(√3γ)simultaneously contribute via coherent ICS. The circular polarization can be easily gotten as well as linear polarization at the same time. Our theory releases the upper limit of Lorentz factor γ≤20 put by curvature radiation, and γ may take several thousands in ICS. firtherrnore, subpulse position angles do take diverse values, while mean position angle is associated with the projection of magnetic field lines. So it is natural to get commonly-seen S-shaped swing of mean position angles. Finally we present a simulation for position angle rotation, linear polarization, circular polarization of PSR1508+55, which means that the coherent ICS may be responsible for radio emission.

Radiation and Vertical Structure of Slim Accretion Disk

Chin. Phys. Lett. 1999, 16 (7): 544-546 .  
Abstract   PDF(pc) (224KB) ( 353 )
The vertical structure of the disk should be specified in order to compare the theoretical model with the observed spectrum of active galactic nuclei. All the existing calculations of vertical structure of the accretion disk were based on the standard model. In this paper the vertical structure of the slim disk is calculated, which may be suitable for wider ranges of parameters. The spectrum for higher accretion rate tends to the universal form Fv ∝ v-1 and the universal cutoff energy, which is consistent with the self-similar solution for the case with a super-Eddington accretion rate.
