Lou Zhi-Mei
2005, 54 (4): 1460-1463. doi: 10.7498/aps.54.1460
Abstract +
The differential equations of motion of a classical particle in the field of noncentral force are expressed in Ermakov formalism, and the Ermakov invariant is obtained. By rescaling the time, the parametric orbit equations of the classical particle can be expressed in terms of energy H and Ermakov invariant. The Noether symmetry, Lie symmetry and the form invariance of the transformations of two conserved quantities are studied in this paper. The result indicates that the transformations of the two conserved quantities not only possess Noether symmetry but also possess Lie symmetry and form invariance.

2005, 54 (4): 1464-1467. doi: 10.7498/aps.54.1464
Abstract +
This paper studies the Mei symmetry and conservation law of the relativistic mechanical system. The definition and criterion of Mei symmetry for the relativistic mechanical system are established, which are based upon the invariance of dynamical functions under infinitesimal transformations. A new conservation law is deduced directly from the Mei symmetry of the system, and the condition under which a Mei symmetry can lead to a new conservation law is obtained and the form ofthe conservation law is presented. An example is given to illustrate the application of the results.

Abstract +
In this work, starting from a Painlev-Bcklund transformation and a multil inear variable separation approach, a general variable separation excitation of the three-dimensional Boiti-Leon-Pempinelli system is derived first. Then based on the derived excitation, we can construct many localized structures like pe akons and compactons etc. Meanwhile, two new types of solitary waves, i.e., a b ell-like loop soliton and a peak-like loop soliton are constructed and their e volution properties of the novel localized structures are briefly discussed.

With the aid of the symbolic computation softwares Maple, we solve the (2 +1)-dimensional Boussinesq equation by doing proper unknown functions ansatz of the seed solutions of the equation and performing mathematical calculations to obtain a series of exact solutions,which contain soliton-like solutions and ra tional solutions. Some exact solutions include arbitrary functions, when these a rbitrary functions are taken as some special functions, these solutions possess abundant structures.

Han Zhao-Xiu
2005, 54 (4): 1481-1484. doi: 10.7498/aps.54.1481
Abstract +
Using the travelling wave transformation instead of the more general function tr ansformation, the modified Jacobi elliptic function expansion method is improved . Some new periodic solutions of nolinear Klein-Gordon equation are obtained usi ng this method. When modulus m→1 or m→0, these periodic solutions dege nerate to the corresponding solitary wave solutions, trigonometric function solu tions or irregular travelling wave solutions. For some nonlinear equations, the general transformation would degenerate to the travelling wave reduction under certain conditions.

Yu Si-Min
2005, 54 (4): 1500-1509. doi: 10.7498/aps.54.1500
Abstract +
This paper proposes a new approach for generating three_dimensional (3_D) multi_scroll chaotic attractors via triangular wave series. The chaotic dynamic char acteristic of multi_scroll system constructed by triangular wave series is furth er investigated. The hardware experimental circuit is designed and the interrela ted circuit implementation is realized. A blocking circuit diagram, including in tegrator N11, triangular wave series generators N22, N33 and N44, switch linkage K, is designed for the hardware imp lementations. The triangular wave series developed here can adjust the swings, w idths, equilibrium points, breakpoints, and slopes so as to generate a large num ber of scrolls with adjustable sizes and shapes. Moreover, the number of scrolls can be controlled via switching of the switch linkage K. The experimental resul t demonstrates that this method can be a new approach for generating 3_D multi_s croll chaotic attractors with up to 21_scrolls in practical circuit by construct ing a family of triangular wave series with adjustable parameters.

Y. Hasegawa T. Sakurai, Jia Jin-Feng, Dong Guo-Cai, Wang Li-Li, Ma Xu-Cun, Xue Qi-Kun
2005, 54 (4): 1513-1527. doi: 10.7498/aps.54.1513
Abstract +
In this paper, we report the local work function measurements on the Cu(111)-Au, and Cu(111)-Pd surfaces with scanning tunneling microscopy (STM). We successfully observed the local work function difference between the Au/Pd overlayer and the Cu substrate, the decreased work function at the step edges. We also found that the work function of the Pd film is larger than that of the bulk Pd(111). T he lower work function at step edges can be explained by the dipole moment forma tion. It is demonstrated that the local work function measurement by STM is a po werful way to identify different elements with nanometer resolution.

Relativistic microscopic description of proton-nucleus scattering at energies u p to 200MeV
Rong Jian, Ma Zhong-Yu
2005, 54 (4): 1528-1537. doi: 10.7498/aps.54.1528
Abstract +
A new decomposition of the Dirac Brückner-Hartree-Fock (DBHF) G matrix is used to study the isospin-dependent relativistic microscopic optical potential (RMOP). The optical potential of finite nuclei can be obtained in the local den sity approximation. The energy dependence of proton-nucleus scattering for the optical potentials of finite nuclei is discussed. The differential cross section s and the resolution power in the p+4040Ca and p+208208Pb at Epp less than 200MeV are also calculated using the above RMOP. I t is found that the calculated results agree with the experimental results. It should be e mphasized that the ROMP obtained from DBHF G matrix without any free parameter s could well describe the proton elastic scattering. This RMOP can also be used for unstable nuclei. From the results of the Ca isotopes, it is found that the i sospin dependence is more important for the exotic nuclei.
The isospin effects on the momentum dissipation induced by the Coulomb interacti on in the process of heavy-ion collissions
Xing Yong-Zhong, Liu Jian-Ye, Guo Wen-Jun, Hao Huan-Feng
2005, 54 (4): 1538-1542. doi: 10.7498/aps.54.1538
Abstract +
The isospin effects of Coulomb interaction on the momentum dissipation in the heavy ion collissions at an intermediate energy has been studied carefully within the isospin dependent quantum molecular dynamics model. The results show that Co ulomb interaction induces the reduction of momentum dissipation because it leads the shrinking of the mechanical and chemical instability domains, and the degre e of reduction depends sensitively on the form and strength of symmetry potentia l. However, the property that the momentum dissipation depends sensitively on th e isospin dependences of in-medium nucleon_nucleon cross section and insensitiv ely on the symmetry potential, is true for the cases with and without the Coulom b interaction.

2005, 54 (4): 1543-1551. doi: 10.7498/aps.54.1543
Abstract +
One-dimensional ion extraction and collection is studied by parallel electrode method using particle in cell_Monte Carlo collision (PIC-MCC) simulation. The e nergy and angle distribution of extracted ions is recorded and the sputtering lo ss is calculated. The results show that the extraction time and collision loss a re decreased by increasing extraction voltage, but the sputtering loss increases and collection ratio decreases. The extraction time is decreased and the collec tion ratio is increased by increasing electron temperature, while the extraction time is increased and the collection ratio is decreased by increasing initializ ed plasma density;and the collision loss is decreased and the collection ratio i s increased, if the target isotope concentration is higher. Improving the parall el electrode method leads to decreasing sputtering loss and increasing collectio n ratio greatly.

2005, 54 (4): 1552-1556. doi: 10.7498/aps.54.1552
Abstract +
The ionization energy spectra and the spherically averaged momentum distributions of inner valence orbitals for diacetyl have been investigated by using a high resolution (ΔE=115eV, Δp≈01a.u.) electron momentum spectrometer. The impact energy was 1200eV plus binding energy (i.e. 1201—1240eV) and a symmetric non-coplanar kinematics was employed. The experimental ionization energy spectra have been compared with the published photoelectron spectra. The momentum profiles of inner valence orbitals 4agg+4buu have been compar ed with the theoretical calculations obtained using Hartree-Fock method and den sity functional theory.The measured momentum distribution is consistent with th e theoretical calculations.

2005, 54 (4): 1557-1563. doi: 10.7498/aps.54.1557
Abstract +
A simulation model for diffusion and aggregation of atomic clusters with repulsi ve interactions on nonlattice substrates is established, and the aggregation pro cess of the silver atoms on charged silicone oil surfaces has been studied. It w as found that after the stable atomic clusters form, due to the repulsive intera ction among the clusters, the number density of the atomic clusters decays with time exponentially and the time constant is Oaa; statistically, the relative speed V between two clusters increases linearly with their distance L according to V=HL, where the constant H≈Oaa after deposition and then approaches zero with time. With the increase of the viscosity coefficient o f liquid substrates, the friction force increases and H decreases. A linear relation between the friction force and H is found with the slope k≈0 10±001 We show that the critical radius r11 of the clusters, abo ve which the atomic clusters start to carry charges, is related nearly to the at omic affinity, i.e., the energy needed for the cluster to carry an extra electro n. It is found that H and Oaa increase slowly with r11 and their slopes are 12±03s-1-1μm-1-1 and 16±06s-1-1μm-1-1, respectively. Our simulation results are in agreement w ith the previous experimental findings.

Li Zheng-Hong, Huang Hua, Chang An-Bi, Meng Fan-Bao
2005, 54 (4): 1564-1571. doi: 10.7498/aps.54.1564
Abstract +
The motion of electrons is affected by microwave in RF cavity. Meanwhile electrons can also generate radiation and have influence on microwave in the cavity. Ac cording to Maxwell theory, RF field in the RF cavity can be expressed by modes. So equations about such actions are established according to Maxwell theory and Lorentz force acting on electrons in the cavity. These equations are also called self-consistent equations for action between microwave and electron beam in RF cavity. Based on the equations, the single-gap RF cavity is investigated one- dimensionally (including how microwave increases and saturates in the cavity) an d the factors influencing the output power are also studied. It is concluded tha t nonlinear action is very important, and that output power is not only determin ed by cavity structure but also by the beam modulation.

2005, 54 (4): 1572-1577. doi: 10.7498/aps.54.1572
Abstract +
Based on the nonparaxial vectorial moment theory of light beam propagation, the propagation characteristics of nonparaxial vector Gaussian beam have been system ically investigated. The results reveal that both the second_order_moment transv ersal beam widths follow a simple hyperbolic law for propagation. The analytical expression of the beam propagation factor is presented. The concise formulae ha ve been further given for highly nonparaxial case. And the maximum transverse di vergences are 90° as the dimension of light source tends to zero. When extendin g to the paraxial case, the obtained results are slightly different from the for merly paraxial formulae. Moreover, the beam propagation factor will always be gr eater than unity. Finally, comparison between the propagation of nonparaxial vec tor Gaussian beam and that of nonparaxial scalar Gaussian beam indicates that th e divergence angles show prodigious discrepancy for Gaussian light source within two times of wavelength scales.

The theoretical solution of the pump light absorption of a laser medium is presented. It is shown that the absorption of pump light with respect to the depth in the solid medium is not a simply exponential function. When the pump photon den sity is high enough, the variation of the absorption becomes nonexponential. The se theoretical results have been verified by experiment with the medium of ruby.

Abstract +
For the first time to our knowledge, it is put forward that GNSE can be resolved by adaptive split-step Fourier method (ASSFM) basing on split-step Fourier method (SSFM) in this paper. It is found that ASSFM must be used to resolve GNSE f or ensuring precision when the frequency shift corresponding to soliton peak val ue is remarkable and microstructure fibers' parameters change along with frequen cy remarkably. It is found that the influence of dispersion on laser pulses evol ution and supercontinuum generation in microstructure fiber is remarkably. Mech anism and scope of expanded spectrum are different in fiber different dispersion regions. The precision of numerical simulation by ASSFM is higher than SSFM in the process of laser pulses propagating in microstructure fibers by reason that the variation of wavelength corresponding to pulse peak power can be considered adequately.

2005, 54 (4): 1607-1612. doi: 10.7498/aps.54.1607
Abstract +
We have investigated the defect effect in three_dimensional (3_D) left_handed metamaterials, consisting of an array of repeated unit cells of copper wires and hexagon split ring resonators (SRRs) on strips of standard circuit board materi al. By measuring the X_band transmission through this metamaterial with differen t point_ and linear_defected SRRs, we find that the resonance frequency, its val ue and passband of transmission peaks, changes markedly. It is suggested that su ch tunable left_handed properties may arise from the symmetry breaking of SRRs i n the metamaterials.

By optimizing the fabrication process of the chirped optical fiber Bragg grating (FBG), some key problems of FBG are solved, such as the temperature stabili ty, time delay ripple coefficient, bandwidth, compensation of polarization mod e dispersion (PMD), and so on. The FBG we fabricated can attain the temperature coefficient less than 00005 nm/℃, its bandwidth is bigger than 14nm, tim e delay ripple is less than 50 ps, and the dispersion is higher than -1000ps/n m.

Jian Guang-De, Dong Jia-Qi
2005, 54 (4): 1641-1647. doi: 10.7498/aps.54.1641
Abstract +
Kinetic shear Alfvn modes in tokamak plasmas (with or without temperature grad ient) in the full gyrokinetic limit are numerically investigated by using the integral eigenvalue equations. A new integration transformation is introduced in this work. This allows the growing and damping modes to be investigated. It is shown that, in the presence of ion temperature gradient (ITG), the threshold value of plasma pressure gradient for the shear Alfvn modes is well below that for ideal magnetohydrodynamic ballooning instability. It is also demonstrated in a m ore general sense that, without ITG, the former is identical with the latter. Th e electromagnetic instability is also found to exist in the second stable region of the ideal modes when a finite ITG is present. The results are compared with previous results of similar analyses for kinetic collisionless ballooning modes.

Huang Song, Xin Yu, NingZhao-Yuan
2005, 54 (4): 1653-1658. doi: 10.7498/aps.54.1653
Abstract +
In this paper, actinometric optical emission spectroscopy (AOES) is used to inve stigate the discharge of CF44 and CH44 mixtures. Relat ive concentratio ns of radicals in an inductively_coupled plasma are determined as functions of rf input power, pressure and the gas flow ratio R (R=[CH44]/{[CH 44]+[CF44]}). It is found that CF,CF22 ,CH,H and F radicals exis t in the CF44/CH44 plasma as well as C22 radical. The relative co ncentration of C22 increases with increasing power, and shows a rev erse “U” shape tendency with increasing pressure. As R increases, the variati on of the relative concentration of C22 is not monotonical. It reac hes a ma ximum value when R=75%, then decreases followed by almost no change with the further increase of R. Based on these results, it is concluded that gas_pha se reaction from the reaction of CF and CH (CF+CH→C22+HF ) contribu tes to the production of C22 radical. At the same time, activation reaction model of radical collision is suggested. Result of simulation agrees well with that of experiment.

2005, 54 (4): 1659-1664. doi: 10.7498/aps.54.1659
Abstract +
Single_phase iron pyrite (FeS22) crystalpowder was prepared by so l_gel hydrothermal method, which was characterized via x_ray diffraction, Fourier transform infrared and scanning electron microscope. A simplified mathematic model was established to analyze the crystal growth process. Results indicate that phase transformation and diffusion mechanism control the process, which fits the secon d_order kinetic equation with an exponent 3215 for time t. This is a decel erated process that can be divided into three steps: during the first period, ma rcasite and pyrite phases are produced, and then with inducting of sulfur into t he reaction, the process is dominated by the merging of marcasite into pyrite. U ltimately, with the fuse of small grains and the growing of larger ones, single_ phase iron pyrite crystals grow up through diffusion mechanism.

Abstract +
Three processes which combined equal_channel angular pressing (ECAP) with heat t reatment were applied to fabricate super_high strength fine 7050 Al alloy. Varia tions of microstructure parameters of precipitates in 7050 Al alloys were analyz ed by using small angle x_ray scattering technique. The variations of mechanical properties and mechanism of strengthening in 7050 Al alloys were explained in the paper. Experiments discovered that “pre_ECAP solid solution treatment and post_ECAP aging treatment" was a proper process, with which the ultimate tensile strength was increased to 677MPa, and elongation to failure was improved to b e 15% or so.

2005, 54 (4): 1671-1678. doi: 10.7498/aps.54.1671
Abstract +
Rapid growth of Cu_10%Pb hypermonotectics and Cu_374%Pb monotectics ha ve been achieved under containerless condition in drop tube. With the increase o f droplet undercooling, the primary(Cu) phase in hypermonotectios shows a morpho logy transition of “coarse dendrite→fragmental dentrite→equiaxed dentrite”. The momotectic microstructure transfers from multiple monotectic cell to single monotectic cell. Corresponding to the droplet diameter changing from 1000 to 100 μm, the calculated maximum undercooling for hypermonotectics and monotectics a re 269 K(02 TLL) and 245 K (02 TMM) respectively. The maximum grow th velocity of (Cu) dendrite is 24 m/s in Cu_10%Pb hypermonotectics. The growt h of primary (Cu) phase is always controlled by solute diffusion. The effect of Marangoni migration is more significant than that of Stokes motion, and the Mara ngoni migration velocity decreases when droplet diameter becomes small.

Abstract +
The structure relaxation of Zr5555Cu3030Al1010Ni55 bulk amorphous alloy annealed at 340℃ for different times have been investigated by synchrotron radiation small angle x-ray scattering and differential scanning calorimetr y. Annealing time dependence of electronic density fluctuation in the amorphous alloy and apparent activation energies for the enthalpy relaxation were presente d and discussed. The experimental results show that electronic density fluctuati ons increase first and then decrease with increasing annealing time, while the a pparent activation energy for the enthalpy relaxation exhibits an opposite chang e, i.e., decreases first and then increases. Both indicate the transformatio n from the liquid-like region to the solid-like region in amorphous alloy duri ng annealing.

2005, 54 (4): 1683-1686. doi: 10.7498/aps.54.1683
Abstract +
The nanocrystalline silicon films were prepared by pulsed laser ablation at the ambient pressures from 1 to 500 Pa of pure Ar gas. The x-ray diffraction spectrum indicates that the films are nanocrystalline, i.e. they are composed of Si nanoparticles. Scanning electron microscopy shows that with increasing gas pressur e, the average size of Si nanoparticles first increases and reaches its maximum (20nm) at 100Pa, and then decreases. The dynamics are analysed theoretically to explain the phenomenon. Furthermore, our result is compared with that in He gas.

Copper nitride(Cu33N) thin films with nano-crystalline were deposite d on glass substrates at a temperature of 100℃ by DC magnetron sputtering with a columnar target. The structure of the Cu33N thin films was characterized by x-ray diffraction, x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy and atomic force microsco py. The results indicate that Cu33N thin films are composed of nanome ter grains with a cu bic crystal structure of anti-ReO33 type. The films have a uniform s mooth surf ace with only a roughness(Raa) of 17nm. The binding energy peaks of Cu2 p3/23/2, Cu2p1/21/2 and N1s were at 9327, 9527 and 3999eV respecti vely, and spin-orbit coupling energy gap of Cu2p was 20eV. The film thickness was determined by a profile step scanner, and its resistivity was measured usin g the four-probe method. The deposition rate and resistivity were found to chan ge with the nitrogen content.

Abstract +
The variation of electrical parameters during microarc oxidation(MAO) of aluminium alloys at constant voltage has been studied by means of a laboratory-made data acquisition system. Experimental results show that the variations of the cath odic and anodic current amplitude and effective working current in an electrical loop with the duration of treatment show obviously five stages, and the variati ons of dynamic positive resistance and the rate of change of resistance in coati ngs also show different stages, while the variations of dynamic negative resista nce and the rate of change of resistance with oxidation time are not evident. Du ring the MAO process, the dynamic positive resistance is always not equal to the negative resistance, and the former is generally greater than the latter in gen eral. Scanning electron microscopy analysis shows that the surface morphology of MAO coatings is macro-porous and its variations with treatment time are in ste ps.

2005, 54 (4): 1702-1706. doi: 10.7498/aps.54.1702
Abstract +
The ab initio method is used to model the colour centers and self-trapped excit ons in KMgF33. The geometry optimization of the defect cluster, incl uding the F center, shows that the relaxation of the lattice around the F center is very small. The calculated Mulliken populations for F center in its ground state and excite state show that the ground state wavefunction of F center is well localized, but the excited state wavefunction of it is more diffuse. Furthermore, our results show that the VKK center moves toward the nearby interstitia l site , but keeping the molecular axis along the[110] direction. The relaxation of the self-trapped excitons consists of an axial translation superimposed wit h a rotation. The calculated excitation energies of F center, VKK ce nter a nd the emission energy of self-trapped exciton are compared with their experim ental values.

To describe the damage process of polymer in the energetic heavy-ion tracks by thermal spike model, polycarbonate foil (PC,Makrofol KG) stacks were irradiated with various swift heavy ions (1158GeVFe5656, 1755GeVXe13 6136 and 2636GeVU238238) in a very wide range of ele ctronic stopping power (from 19 to 171keV/nm) and the range of fluence fro m 1×101010 to 3×101212ions/cm22. The amorphization processes in the irradiated PC were studied by x-ray diffraction. By using the saturated track model (the damaging process only occur in the cyli ndrical track of area σ), the mean damage radii of tracks of the amorphization were calculated for Fe, Xe and U ion irradiation. The results obtained by using the thermal spike model, proved to be reasonable.

These physical effects are very difficult to explain by the diffusion theory of solid-state phase transition, but using the theory of fluid diffusion change for shock wave crystallization is feasible.

Abstract +
The morphology of InP self-organized islands grown on GaInP buffer layer was calculated by employing the combination of the elastic energy Err cause d by the stress of the buffer layer and the excessive surface energy of the island Ess. The result shows that the island morphology is affected by the mi smatch between GaxxIn1-x1-xP buffer layer and InP island. With Ga content in creasing in GaInP layer, the island elongates itself with mismatch increasing. T he island metamorphosis was elongated also with volume increasing of the island. The parameters of the buffer layer determine the volume of the island which is at the minimized state. The morphology of different InP/GaxxIn1-x1-x P systems, grown on GaAs substrate by metal organic chemical vapor deposition me thod, was consistent with our calculations.

Abstract +
Transparent and conductive oxides CdIn22O44 thin films wer e prepared by radio-frequency reactive sputtering from a Cd-In alloy target in Ar+O22 atmosphere. The structure and constitution of the films were obtained by x-ray diffraction. All films prepared contained the polycrystalline CdIn22O44 while a secondar y crystalline phase of CdO was also present. Theoretically, it is proposed that three types of point defects play the most important role in affecting the carri er concentration and the scattering of conduction electrons, namely, oxygen vaca ncies, impure point defects and dissolved surplus oxygen trap centers. By the me asurement and computing for Hall and themopower, we could get carrier concentrat ion, Hall mobility, effective mass and relaxation time. At the same time, this p aper formulated the effect on optical band-gap due to band-gap narrowing and B urstein-Moss (B-M) shift, and a proper substrate temperature, namely Tss≈280℃, was used in sputtering for getting higher transmittance of light. Analy sis indicated that better thin films were prepared at oxygen density of 8%. By p ost-deposition heat treatment, a charge-carrier mobility of 31×10-4-4m2/V·s and resistivity of 189×10-5Ω·m were obtained, and the thin films also retain high visible transmittance.

Abstract +
Superhard and oxide-composed multilayers are promising coatings for tools working under extreme conditions. In this paper, TiN/SiO22 nanomultilayers with vari ous individual SiO22 and TiN layer thicknesses have been prepared by multi-tar gets magnetron sputtering method. The growth structure and mechanical properties of the films have been studied by x-ray diffraction, energy dispersive x-ray spectrometry, high-resolution transmission electron microscope and nanoindenter. It reveals that although SiO22 and TiN monolithic films form amorp hous and nanocrystalline structures, respectively, the TiN/SiO22 multilayers exhibit coherent epitaxial growth due to the mutual growth-promoting effect. At small Si O22 layer thickness (~1nm) S iO22 layers transform into amorphous structure and block the coherent growth of multilayers, and then the hardness and elastic modulus of the multilayers decre ase gradually with increasing SiO22 layer thickness. On the other han d, the cha nging of TiN layer thickness shows a relatively small effect on the growth struc ture and mechanical properties of the nanomultilayers.

Abstract +
A systematic study based on ab initio calculation within local spin density appr oximation is carried out for material design of Ⅱ-Ⅳ-Ⅴ22 chal copyrite semiconductor (CdGeP22 and ZnGeP22) doped with 3d-TM (TM= V, Cr, Mn, Fe, Co and Ni). It is found that the ferromagnetic (FM) state will be realized in V and Cr doped CdGeP22 and ZnGeP22; for Mn, Fe and Co doped ones, the antiferromagnetic (AFM) states are more stable than FM states; whereas dope d with Ni, the dilute magnetic semiconductor (DMS) shows unstable ferromagnetism . It is suggested that Ⅰ-Ⅳ-Ⅴ22 chalcopyrite semiconductor doped with Cr is a candidate for high Curie temperature (TCC) DMS. When th e t2g2g states of TM are partially occupied, the DMS doped with TMs shows a stable FM state, whereas when the t2g2g states of TMs are fully occupied or empty, the DMS with the TM shows AFM state. In order to elucid ate the underlying mechanism of the ferromagnetism in DMS, the magnetism in (C d,Mn)GeP22 and (Cd,Mn)GeP22 under the carrier (elect ron or hole) doping treatment is investigated. It is found that it is crucial to realize the carrier-induced ferromagnetism, indopendent of whethe r the doped carrier has itinerant TM-3d character or not.

Abstract +
Using the density-functional theory within the full-potential linear augmented plane wave method, we have calculated the influence of the mercury vacancy on the bonding mechanism and the relaxation effects in the Hg050.5Cd 050.5Te (MCT) alloy. The bonding charge density and charge transf er gave the explanation for the relaxation results. The results of density of st ates revealed that the re-coupling of the dangling bond of the nearest neighbor (NN) of the vacancy make the NN Te 5s state energy level shift up. The reasons for the energy level shift were discussed with the Te s-state bonding charge density. The results of the partial density of state at the band edge reveal that the mercury vacancy will narrow the band gap of the MCT materials.

Dipole moments, polarizabilities and first hyperpolarizabilities of a series of transition metal complexes have been studied by employing various exchange-correlated potentials within the density functional theory (DFT). Taking into consideration the basis set and frequency-dispersion effects, the efficiencies of these potentials have been calibrated by comparing with the ab initio results of MP2, HF and experimental measurements. The effect of different portion of exchanged-correlated functional of hybrid-DFT on dipole moment, polarizability and first hyperpolarizability has been discussed as well.

Abstract +
The models of interphase boundaries of austenite/ferrite(γ/α) in the undeformde austenite and deformed austenite, and the model of 12[1 1 0] edge dislocation in austenite matrix were set up with computer programming. The interfacial energ y of γ/α interphase boundaries in the undeformde austenite and deformed austen ite, the environment sensitive embedding energies (EESEESE) of C, N a nd microalloying elements Nb, Ti or V (in the form of air mass) in the area of e dge dislocation in austenite were calculated by using recursion method. The refineme nt mechanism of steels in the deformation process was discussed. Interfacial ene rgy calculation results show that the most preferred ferrite nucleation sites ar e the area of high density dislocations such as deformation bands, the austenite grain boundaries and subbounaries, which leads to a considerable increase in th e nucleation rate. This is why ferrite grains formed in the deformed austenite a re far more smaller than those in undeformed austenite. The EESEESE calcu lation results show that C,N microalloying elements (Nb, Ti or V) in form of the air mass, C,N together with microalloying elements (Nb or Ti) in the form air m ass are all easy to aggregate to the area of edge dialocations, which results in the carbonitride precipitation in there (deformation band, grain boundary or gr ain subboundary). The growth of ferrite grains is considerably suppressed by def ormation due to impingement with carbonitride particles and other ferrite grains , which leads to the further refinement of ferrite grains.

We report the low-temperature resistance under a magnetic field (μ00H=0, 5 and 10T) within the temperature range from 18 to 300K and low temp erature (T=19 and 15K) magneto_resistance (μ00H=0—10T) of hea vy electron compounds CeCu6-x6-xCdxx(x=010,015 ,020,0 30,050). The experiments show that the Tmaxmax(correspondin g to the max imal resistance)of all samples are not observed over 18K under zero magneti c field. When a magnetic field is applied, the Tmaxmax increases with inc reasing magnetic field and doping content x. Meanwhile, the magneto_resista nces are all negative at 19K and the positive magneto_resistance of part of samples is observed at 15K. This phenomenon can be explained by Kondo scatteri ng and coherent scattering.

Variations of the irradiated defects, resistivity, carrier mobility ratio and ca rrier concentration in high-dose neutron-irradiated n-type Czochralski silico n have been investigated by means of Fourier transform infrared spectrometer, po sitron annihilation spectroscopy and Hall effect. After irradiated with fast neu tron, the sample transformed from n to p-type. Two types of acceptor centers th at contribute to the V22O22, V22O, VO22, V-O-V and V 44-type defects will appear after annealing at temperature of 450 a nd 600 ℃, respectively. After annealing at temperatures above 650℃, with the elimin ation of acceptors, the carrier mobility ratio and the carrier-type began to re cover and a type of donor related to the irradiated defects will appear. The eff ective annealing temperature is 750℃ at which the donor is formed, and anneal ing above 900℃ for 1h will eliminate the donor.
Theoretical study on the absorption and dispersion in asymmetrically coupled qua ntum well structure
Huang De-Xiu, Hu Zhen-Hua
2005, 54 (4): 1788-1793. doi: 10.7498/aps.54.1788
Abstract +
The absorption and dispersion behaviors of an asymmetrically coupled quantum well (ACQW) structure are studied based on V-type system. We show that the quantum-confined Stark shift due to an electric field applied along the growth direction of ACQW leads to the detuning absorption, and the corresponding linear refraction is dramatically decreased in a smaller negative-bias voltage region. This means that refraction quenching induced by an external electric field can occur in an ACQW structure. However, the absorption and the dispersion behaviors become the same as those of the lowest excitonic state in a single quantum well structure as the negative-bias voltage further increases due to the disappearance of quantum-confined Stark effect. This means that the ACQW structure has controllable dispersion by using an external field.

We have studied the exciton states in vertically stacked self-assembled quantum disks within the effective mass approximation. The energy spectrum of the elect ron and hole is calculated using the transfer matrix formalism in the adiabatic approximation. The Coulomb interaction between the electron and the hole is trea ted accurately by the direct diagonalization of the Hamiltonian matrix. The effe ct of the vertical alignment of the disks on the ground energy of heavy- and li ght-hole exciton is presented and discussed. The binding energy is discussed in terms of the probability of the ground wave function. The ground energy of heav y- and light-hole excitons as a function of the magnetic field is presented an d the effect of the disk size (the radius of disks) on the exciton energy is dis cussed.

2005, 54 (4): 1809-1813. doi: 10.7498/aps.54.1809
Abstract +
Thin CaCu33Ti44O1212 ceramic films have been successfully fabricated by a magnetron sputtering method and the surface morphology, microstructure and dielectric property of the samples have been measured by using atom force microscope, x-ray diffractometer (XRD) and LCR meter. XRD patterns show that the lattice constant of the films is less than that of the bulk materials, while the distort ion of the lattice in the films is comparatively larger. LCR results show that t he relative dielectric constant of the films is lower than that of the bulck mat erials at fixed temperature, and the temperature at which the dielectric constan t transits abruptly is higher and the activation energy of the films is larger. Further analysis shows that the lower crystallinity and more defects in the samp les result in the rapid decrease of the barrier layer capacity and film density, which should be responsible for the lower relative dielectric constant. The inc rease of the activation energy in the samples depends mainly on the factors such as internal stress, microstructure, defect and domain etc. The rapid increase o f the dielectric constant in lower frequency range implies that there exists int erface polarized phenomenon in the samples, which is related to the defects and dangling bonds on the interface.
Studies on the electronic structures, exchange coupling and magnetic moments of spin and orbital in the compound SmCo55

Abstract +
The electronic density of states, spin-splittings and atomic magnetic moment of RE-TM compound SmCo55 have been studied by spin-polarized MS-Xα method. The results show that a few of electrons are transferred to Sm(5d00) o rbital because of orbital hybridization between Sm and Co atoms in the compound. The exchange interactions between 3d and 5d electrons lead to the magnetic coupling betwee n Sm and Co, and therefore, result in the long-range ferromagnetic order inside the compound SmCo55 There are some negative exchange couplings occ urring at six levels, which make the Curie temperature of SmCo55 decrease disti nctly, com pared with pure Co. The spin moment and orbital moment of 2c and 3g site s have been also studied in this paper. We found that the spin moment, orbital m oment and its quenched part of Co(2c) are greater than that of Co(3g).Th erefore, the strength of L-S coupling of the former is a little greater tha n that of the latter, which implies the contribution to magneto-anisotropy of 2c site is greater than that of 3g site. But the unquenched orbital mome nt in 2c site is slightly smaller than that in 3g site. So, the differen ce of contribution to the anisotropy between the two Co-sites is not very disti nct. Considering the localization of 4f electrons and the few 5d electrons, the magnetic moment of Sm atom will be 129μBB in SmCo55, wh ich is in agreem ent with the experiments of Sm3+3+ ion-moment (132—163μBB) and the Sm atom-moment (174μBB) in metal.

The dependence of the soft magnetic properties and the GMI effect on the RF sputtering power has been studied. The results measured by electron probe micro-analysis show that the as-deposited films sputtered at 240W possess 29at% Cu and 8732at% Fe. This sample possesses excellent soft magnetic properties and a maximum value of GMI effect, the coercive force is about 68A/m, the saturation magnetization is about 111×1055A/m, and the maximum GMI r atios are 17% and 11% in longitudinal and transverse fields at frequency of 13MHz, respectively. In addition, the dependence of resistance R, inductance X and effective permeability μee on the frequency has been investigated, and the results show that the GMI effect is mainly a magneto-inductive effect at low frequencies.

Abstract +
We report the effect of Ru(seed-layer) on the interlayer antiferromagnetic coupling field Hexex, and coercivity Hcc in the Cr/Ru(se ed-layer)/PtCo(thermal stabilizing layer)/Ru(spacer layer)/PtCo(recording layer)/Ru(protective layer) films. Both Hexex and Hcc increase with t he increase o f the thickness of the seed-layer Ru. It arises probably from the appearance of hcp structure in the seed-layer Ru. Hexex and Hcc sh ow a peak value at Ru(seed-layer) layer with a thickness of ~08nm.

Abstract +
Fe/Pt multilayers and FePt thin films were prepared by DC magnetron sputtering. The as-prepared samples were subjected to vacuum annealing at temperatures in t he range of 300—550℃. The multilayered structure is an effective approach fo r reducing the ordering temperature of FePt. The ordering parameter S is evaluated to be 06, and correspondingly the coercivity is evaluated to be 501kA/m in [Fe(15nm)/Pt(15nm)]1313 multilayers annealed at 350℃ for 20min. Relatively low ordering temperature for the multilayer is due to the e xtra driving force of ordering process caused by the vanishing of the multilayer interface at annealing.

Abstract +
The [Co8585Cr1515/Pt]2020 multilayers w ith Pt underlayers were prepared by magnetron sputtering and the effects of sputtering Ar gas pressure on m icrostructure and magnetic properties of [Co8585Cr1515 /Pt]2020 mul tilayers were studied. The results show that sputtering Ar gas pressure has a gr eat effect on the microstructure, perpendicular magnetic anisotropy and the coer civity of [Co8585Cr1515/Pt]2020 mul tilayers. For all samples, we have the effective magnetic anisotropy constant K effeff>0, and all s amples showed perpendicular magnetic anisotropy. With increasing sputtering Ar g as pressure, the perpendicular and in-plane coercivity of the samples increase, but the effective magnetic anisotropy constant decreases. The coercivity of Pt( 20nm)/[(Co8585Cr1515(05nm)/Pt(15nm)]2020 multilayers spu tter-depositied at 16Pa Ar gas pressures is increased to 130kA/m. The Pt( 20nm)/[(Co8585Cr1515(05nm)/Pt(15nm)] 2020 multilayers display perpendicular magnetic anisotropy and can be used as perpendicular magn etic recording media. The images of atomic force microscopy show that both avera ge grain size and the surface roughness increase with increasing sputtering Ar p ressure, which leads to the enhancement of perpendicular coercivity and the decr ease of effective magnetic anisotropy constant.

Abstract +
Compared with massive magneto-optical (MO) crystals, the one-dimensional MO photonic crystals, which are composed of magneto-optical and dielectric films per iodically or quasi-periodically, have a notable enhancement in MO effects, so t hey are very useful for fabricating micro-size MO isolators with only tens of m icrons in thickness. Our theoretical calculations are based on a transfer matri x method that is suitable to solve the problems of the propagation of polarized light in anisotropic media at an oblique incident angle. Using this method, we h ave discussed the working stability of two particular types of “sandwiched" ref lection-mode MO multilayer film isolators with the change of incident angle and film thickness at λ=1053μm. It is revealed that the structure with a thicker central MO medium has the advantages of better working stability and les s necessary layers.

The urea has been used as a precipitant agent to react with soluble Zn2+2+ salt and Eu3+3+ salt for preparing ZnO:Eu3+3+ nanocrystals. The particle size, the crystal structure and morphology of the nan ocrystalline ZnO:Eu3+3+ were characterized by x-ray diffractio n and transmission electron micrograph. Narrow-sized, finely dispersed nanocrys talline ZnO:Eu3+3+ with a small size about 8nm has been obtained by homogeneous precipitation method. By using different preparation methods, obtai ning different dimensions of crystals with different doping concentrations, the luminescence characteristics of nanocrystalline ZnO:Eu3+3+ were stu died. The results indicate that the homogeneous precipitation method is a kind o f superior preparation technique for nano-size doped materials, and also demons trate the feasibility of nanocrystalline ZnO:Eu3+3+ for luminescent applications.

Abstract +
Quantum interference control photocurrent in bulk semiconductors is analyzed using the Fermi golden rule and Kane six-band model. The initial momentum distributions of photoexcited carriers in different polarized light fields are calculat ed. The polarization dependence of the coherent currents is shown explicitly in a microscopic level. For the case of parallel linear polarizations, the current direction is along the direction of the light polarization; while for the case of perpendicular polarizations the current direction is along the polarization o f the harmonic frequency light. It is also shown that when the one-photon trans ition and the two-photon transition is balanced, the maximum current injection efficiency is achieved.

Abstract +
Positron lifetime parameters have been measured by position annihilation technique in binary Ni7777Al2323 and Ni7474 Al2626 alloys with different Al contents and Ni33Al alloy doped with different amounts of Zr. The density o f free electrons in bulk materials and grain boundaries was calculated in this p aper. The results show that the density of free electrons in bulk materials and grain boundaries in Ni7474Al2626 alloy is lower t han that in Ni7777Al2323 alloy. The open volume in grain boundary is larger in Ni7474Al2626 alloy, and the cohesion of grain boundaries is weaker. When an amount of Zr atoms is added into the Ni33Al alloy, they increase the density of f ree electr ons in the bulk and thus increase the bonding cohesion in the bulk. The other Z r atoms will segregate at grain boundaries and increase their free electron dens ity; this will strengthen the bonding cohesion in grain boundaries. Alloying ele ment Zr is found to be beneficial to reduce the brittleness of Ni33Al alloy with different Al contents.

Abstract +
ZnS films are prepared on glass and quartz substrates by sulfidation of the ZnO films which are deposited via reactive magnetron sputtering and annealed under v arious conditions. The sulfurized films are characterized by using x_ray diffrac tion, scanning electron microscope and UV—VIS spectrometer. The results show t hat the crystalline structure and optical properties of the sulfurized films dep end on the annealing conditions. ZnO films annealed in vacuum and pure O2 2 at mosphere, respectively, are converted partially to the hexagonal ZnS, while the annealed ZnO films in air and pure N22, respectively, are converted t otally to ZnS. Also the ZnS films produced by sulfurizing the annealed ZnO films in air an d pure N22, respectively, have a high optical transmittance of about 80% at the wavelength of 400—800nm, with the band-gap energies of 366 and 361eV, respectively.

The structural, optical and electrical properties of CdSxxTe1-x1-x thin films prepared by co_evaporation of powders of CdS and CdTe ha ve been studie d by x_ray diffraction, atomic force microscopy and optical transmittance spectr a measurements. Results show that the as_deposited CdSxxTe1-x1 -x thi n films are homogeneous, adherent and compact on the glass slides substrates wit hout pinhole and that their conductivity is n_type for x≥05 and p_type fo r xxTe1-x1-x thin f ilms are pol ycrystalline and show highly preferential orientation. The predominant direct op tical transitions were observed and the variation of the optical energy gap E gg is nonlinear with x. Given the values of lattice parameter and opt ical energy gap, the exact composition of the phase change at x=025 has been determined. The films are of a cubic phase for x025. After annealing there is no change in the structure of the films with a slight decrease in optical energy gap. Finally, a new structure of CdS/CdTe/Z nTe/ZnTe:Cu/Au solar cells with a CdSxxTe1-x1-x buffer l ayer has been proposed.

Abstract +
Diamond-like carbon (DLC) films were deposited on Si substrates by a dual direct current and radio frequency plasma-enhanced chemical vapor deposition (DC-RF-PECVD) technique. The effect of RF power on the surface morphology, micros tructure, hardness and Young's modulus of DLC films was investigated by atomic f orce microscopy, Raman spectroscopy, x-ray photoelectron spectrometry, infrared spectroscopy and nano-indentation. The films produced by DC-RF-PECVD have typical hydrogenated diamond-like characteristics, and the surface of the film s was smooth and compact.With the increase of RF power the bonded hydrogen conte nt in the films decreased while the sp33 content, hardness and Youn g's modulus of the DLC films reached the maxima at an RF power of 100W and then they decr eased with further increase of the RF power.

Abstract +
Microcrystalline silicon thin films at different growth stages were prepared by hot wire chemical vapor deposition. Atomic force microscopy has been applied to investigate the evolution of surface topography of these films. According to the fractal analysis, it was found that, the growth of Si film deposited on glass substrate is the zero_diffused stochastic deposition; while for the film on Si substrate, it is the finite diffused deposition on the initial growth stage, and transforms to the zero_diffused stochastic deposition when the film thickness reaches a certain value. The film thickness dependence of island density shows that a maximum of island density appears at the critical film thickness for both substrates. The data of Raman spectra approve that, on the glass substrate, the a_Si:H/μc_Si:H transition is related to the critical film thickness. Different substrate materials directly affect the surface diffusion ability of radicals, resu lting in the difference of growth modes on the earlier growth stage.

Abstract +
Oxygen contamination of samples fabricated by very high_frequency plasma_enhanced chemical vapor deposition with the variation of silane concentration and disc harge power was studied by secondary ion mass spectroscopy. The results showed t hat oxygen content in the samples depended strongly on the silane concentration and discharge power. Microcrystalline silicon thin films with higher crystallin e volume fraction has relatively higher oxygen content. Oxygen contamination of samples was also related with the background vacuum, especially for microcrystal line silicon thin films. Therefore, higher background vacuum is extremely necess ary in the fabrication of high-quality microcrystalline silicon thin films.

Abstract +
Microcrystalline silicon solar cells with the variation of silane concentration (SC) and discharge power were fabricated by very high frequency plasma_enhanced chemical vapor deposition. The results of J_V measurements showed that open circuit voltage (Vococ) of solar cells decreases with the decr ease of silane concentration and the increase of power in the range of experiments. I nfluence of SC on short_circuit current density (Jscsc) is more evi dent than power. As for microcrystalline silicon solar cells, the optimum choice for N layer is amorphous, because it can decrease the lateral collection effect of current on the one hand and increase the fill factor on the other hand.

The cell diameter increases as the dislocation density decreases, and the dislocations form relatively large cells with a few isolated dislocations within each cell. The profiles of C distributio n in the area of a cell is “W”-shaped.

2005, 54 (4): 1950-1957. doi: 10.7498/aps.54.1950
Abstract +
A general analytical solution is derived for an electric potential produced by a direct current point source located at any position in a multilayered spher ical volume conductor. Starting from Poisson's equation, the electric potential whose coefficients are rapidly got in the form of matrix expressions is obtained according to the boundary conditions. Simulation for a four-layered spherical volume conductor denoting the scalp, skull, cerebrospinal fluid and brain tissue proves that electric potential in this paper converges more rapidly in the whol e region than that expressed only in spherical harmonics expansion form, and ite rative times decrease. Electric potential contour and current streamline figur es show that it is important to consider the effect of the low conductivity of s kull on electric potential and current flow. The distribution of electric potent ial on the surface of sphere is discussed, which will be useful in electroenceph alography inverse problems, and also in analyzing and interpreting the electric potential measurement.
