1 | Saam, Brian | Phase relationship between the long-time beats of free induction decays and spin echoes in solids | Recent theoretical work on the role of microscopic chaos in the dynamics and relaxation of many-body quantum systems has made several experimentally confirmed predictions about the systems of interacting nuclear spins in solids, focusing in particular on the shapes of spin echo responses measured by... | 2012-01-01 | ||

2 | Vardeny, Zeev Valentine | Photoexcitation dynamics in polythiophene/fullerene blends for photovoltaic applications | We used the transient and steady state photomodulation spectroscopies for studying the photoexcitations dynamics in blends of regio-regular poly(3-hexylthiophene) (RR-P3HT) and fullerene in a broad spectral range from 0.15 to 2.25 eV. We found that both localized polarons and singlet excitons are in... | 2012-01-01 | ||

3 | Mishchenko, Eugene | Resonant finite-size impurities in graphene, unitary limit, and Friedel oscillations | A unitary limit for model point scatterers in graphene is known to reveal low-energy resonances. The same limit could be achieved from hybridization of band electrons with the localized impurity level positioned in the vicinity of the Fermi level. The finite-size defects represent an easier realizat... | 2012-01-01 | ||

4 | Gondolo, Paolo | Simple renormalizable flavor symmetry for neutrino oscillations | The recent measurement of a nonzero neutrino mixing angle θ13 requires a modification of the tri-bimaximal mixing pattern that predicts a zero value for it. We propose a new neutrino mixing pattern based on a spontaneously broken A4 flavor symmetry and a type-I seesaw mechanism. Our model allows fo... | 2012-01-01 | ||
