Antiprotons from dark matter annihilation through light mediators and a possible excess in AMS-02 $\bar{p}/p$ dataNov 07 2016Nov 14 2016We show that in the scenario where dark matter (DM) particles annihilate through light mediators, the energy spectra of the final state cosmic-ray particles depend strongly on the mediator mass. For final state antiprotons, a spectrum with relatively ... More

The Contrastive analysis of observation data between HLS and DSQ water tube clinometers in Jingxian seismicstationJul 10 2013Nov 21 2013A set of HLS was installed in JingXian seismicstation for the tidal correction of observations from HLS. Harmonic analysis of the data recorded by HLS and DSQ water tube clinometers in JingXian seismicstation and contrastive analysis of the results are ... More

The role of a triangle singularity in the $γp\rightarrow K^+ Λ(1405)$ reactionOct 23 2016We show the effects of a triangle singularity mechanism for the $\gamma p \to K^+\Lambda(1405)$ reaction. The mechanism has a $N^*$ resonance around 2030~MeV, which decays into $K^* \Sigma$. The $K^*$ decays to $K^+ \pi$, and the $\pi \Sigma$ merge to ... More

Active coupling control in densely packed subwavelength waveguides via dark modeJan 19 2015The ever growing need for energy-efficient and fast communications is driving the development of highly integrated photonic circuits where controlling light at the nanoscale becomes the most critical aspect of information transfer . Directional couplers, ... More

Cold stream stability during minor mergersJan 08 2014We use high-resolution Eulerian simulations to study the stability of cold gas flows in a galaxy size dark matter halo (10^12 Msun) at redshift z=2. Our simulations show that a cold stream penetrating a hot gaseous halo is stable against thermal convection ... More

A complicated Duffing oscillator in the surface-electrode ion trapFeb 16 2013The oscillation coupling and different nonlinear effects are observed in a single trapped $^{40}Ca^{+}$ ion confined in our home-built surface-electrode trap (SET). The coupling and the nonlinearity are originated from the high-order multipole potentials ... More

Manipulating the Majorana Qubit with the Landau-Zener-Stückelberg InterferenceApr 13 2015Constructing a universal operation scheme for Majorana qubits remains a central issue for the topological quantum computation. We study the Landau-Zener-St\"{u}ckelberg interference in a Majorana qubit and show that this interference can be used to achieve ... More

Constraints on the Sommerfeld-enhanced dark matter annihilation from the gamma rays of subhalos and dwarf galaxiesNov 02 2017Mar 30 2018The substructures of the Galactic dark matter halo such as dark matter subhalos and dwarf galaxies have very low velocity dispersions, which makes them useful in constraining the scenario of Sommerfeld-enhanced dark matter annihilation. We calculate the ... More
