Very recently the LHCb collaboration reported their observation of the first two fully open-flavor tetraquark states, the X 0 (2900) of J P = 0 + and the X 1 (2900) of J P = 1 − . We study their possible interpretations using the method of QCD sum rules, paying special attention to an interesting feature of this experiment that the higher resonance X 1 (2900) has a width significantly larger than the

In cavity quantum electrodynamics, the multiple reflections of a photon between two mirrors defining a cavity is exploited to enhance the light-coupling of an intra-cavity atom. We show that this paradigm for enhancing the interaction of a flying particle with a localized object can be generalized to spintronics based on van der Waals 2D magnets. Upon tunneling through a magnetic bilayer, we find that

Huber et al. [Phys. Rev. Lett. 118 (2017) 200502] have proved that a seven-qubit state whose three-body marginal states are all maximally mixed does not exist. Here, we propose a method to build a maximally entangled state based on orthogonal arrays to construct maximally entangled seven-qubit states. Using this method, we not only determine that a seven-qubit state whose three-body marginals are all

This paper proposes a method of repairing interface defects by supercritical nitridation technology, in order to suppress the threshold voltage shift of AlGaN/GaN metal-insulator-semiconductor high-electron-mobility transistors (MIS-HEMTs). We find that supercritical NH 3 fluid has the characteristics of both liquid NH 3 and gaseous NH 3 simultaneously, i.e., high penetration and high solubility, which

Two-dimensional (2D) blue phosphorene with a honeycomb structure is the phosphorus analog of graphene, and is regarded as a promising 2D material with a large tunable band gap and high charge-carrier mobility. Here, using the molecular beam epitaxy method, we synthesize monolayer blue phosphorene on the Ag(111) surface. Combined with first-principles calculations, scanning tunneling microscopy measurements

The CdS/CdTe heterojunction plays an important role in determining the energy conversion efficiency of CdTe solar cells. However, the interface structure remains unknown, due to the large lattice mismatch between CdS and CdTe, posing great challenges to achieving an understanding of its interfacial effects. By combining a neural-network-based machine-learning method and the stochastic surface walking-based

Novel ionic transporting phenomena emerge as nanostructures approach the molecular scale. At the sub-2nm scale, widely used continuum equations, such as the Nernst–Planck equation, break down. Here, we extend the Nernst–Planck equation by adding a partial dehydration effect. Our model agrees with the reported ion fluxes through graphene oxide laminates with sub-2nm interlayer spacing, outperforming

We examine an amorphous oxide semiconductor (AOS) of ZnRhCuO. The a -ZnRhCuO films are deposited at room temperature, having a high amorphous quality with smooth surface, uniform thickness and evenly distributed elements, as well as a high visible transmittance above 87% with a wide bandgap of 3.12 eV. Using a -ZnRhCuO films as active layers, thin-film transistors (TFTs) and gas sensors are fabricated

Sympathetic cooling is a method used to lower the kinetic energy of ions with complicated energy-level structures, via Coulomb interactions with laser-cooled ions in an ion trap. The ion to be sympathetically cooled is sometimes prepared outside of the trap, and it is critical to introduce this ion into the trap by temporarily lowering the potential of one endcap without allowing the coolant ion to

We demonstrate a novel polarization control system based on a gradient descent algorithm, applied to a 450-km optical frequency transfer link. The power of the out-loop beat note is retrieved by controlling the polarization state of the transferred signal, with a recovery time of 24 ms, thereby ensuring the long-term evaluation of the fiber link. As a result, data utilization is enhanced from 70% to

Using the newly-developed solid ionic gating technique, we measure the electrical transport property of a thin-flake NbSe 2 superconductor ( T c = 6.67 K) under continuous Li intercalation and electron doping. It is found that the charge-density-wave transition is suppressed, while at the same time a carrier density, decreasing from 7 × 10 14 cm –2 to 2 × 10 14 cm –2 also occurs. This tunable capability
