In this approach, the potential difference applied across the gap between two adjacent GEMs is reversed compared to the standard configuration. In such a gap structure, called ... More
Phase space localization of a scalar charged particleJun 07 2002The thesis is devoted to the phase space representation of relativistic quantum mechanics. For a class of observables with matrix-valued Weyl symbols proportional to the identity matrix, the Weyl-Wigner-Moyal formalism is proposed. The evolution equations ... More
Multi-epoch VLBA observations of radio galaxy 0932+075: is this a compact symmetric object?Jul 29 2014A part of the radio structure of the galaxy 0932+075 emerged as a possible compact symmetric object (CSO) after the observation with the Very Long Baseline Array (VLBA) at 5 GHz in 1997. More than a decade later, we carried out observations at 5, 15.4, ... More
Pseudogap from ARPES experiment: three gaps in cuprates and topological superconductivityJan 17 2015Feb 21 2015A term first coined by Mott back in 1968 a `pseudogap' is the depletion of the electronic density of states at the Fermi level, and pseudogaps have been observed in many systems. However, since the discovery of the high temperature superconductors (HTSC) ... More
