101 DeTar, CarletonZero temperature string breaking with staggered quarksThe separation of a heavy quark and antiquark pair leads to the formation of a tube of flux, or "string", which should break in the presence of light quark-antiquark pairs. This expected zero-temperature phenomenon has proven elusive in simulations of lattice QCD. In an extension of work reported ...Flux tube; String breaking; Wilson loop; Staggered quarks2001-03
102 Vardeny, Zeev Valentine; Ehrenfreund, Eitan A.Excitation dynamics in disubstituted polyacetyleneWe studied the excitation dynamics in films of disubstituted polyacetylene, a degenerate ground-state conjugated polymer, using psec transient and steady-state spectroscopies. The polymer is found to support charged and neutral topological soliton excitations concurrent with a strong intrinsic p...Excitation dynamics; Disubstituted polyacetylene; Laser action1999-05
103 Mishchenko, EugeneThermal conductivity of a two-dimensional electron gas with Coulomb interactionWe demonstrate that forward electron-electron scattering due to Coulomb interaction in a two-dimensional ballistic electron-gas leads to the (T ln T)21 temperature dependence of the thermal conductivity, which is logarithmically suppressed compared to the usual Fermi-liquid behavior.Coulomb drag; Coulomb interaction2003-01
104 Rogachev, AndreyInfluence of high magnetic fields on the superconducting transition of one-dimensional Nb and MoGe nanowiresThe effects of a strong magnetic field on superconducting Nb and MoGe nanowires with diameter ~10 nm have been studied.

105 Wu, Yong-ShiWu repliesThe preceding Comment [1] on my Letter [2] and Haldane?s Letter [3] cites three old papers by Anghel [4], which contained an unfounded claim that the thermodynamics derived in Ref. [2] for a generalized ideal gas, based on the generalized Pauli principle proposed in Ref. [3], is physically inconsis...Quantum states; Quasiparticle excitation; Species; Subspecies; Species subdivision2010

108 DeTar, CarletonEquation of state for two flavor QCD at Nt=6We calculate the two flavor equation of state for QCD on lattices with lattice spacing a=(6T)21 and find that cutoff effects are substantially reduced compared to an earlier study using a=(4T)21. However, it is likely that significant cutoff effects remain. We fit the lattice data to expected forms ...Phase transitions; Quark-gluon plasma; Dynamical quarks1997-06
109 Symko, Orest GeorgeBackground signals in SQUID magnetometersSince a SQUID magnetometer is an extremely sensitive device capable of detecting minute magnetic flux changes in a sample, it will also detect unwanted signals from materials near the magnetometer. The presence of temperature dependent "background signals" limits the accuracy of measurements of ...SQUID magnetometer; Background signals1974

125 DeTar, CarletonExotic mesons in quenched lattice QCDSince gluons in QCD are interacting fundamental constituents just as quarks are, we expect that in addition to mesons made from a quark and an antiquark, there should also be glueballs and hybrids ~bound states of quarks, antiquarks, and gluons!. In general, these states would mix strongly with th...Hybrid mesons; Antiquarks1997-12
