Complete one-loop effects of SUSY QCD in $b\bar{b}h$ production at the LHC under current experimental constraintsAug 16 2012Jan 02 2013Inspired by the recent LHC Higgs data and null search results of supersymmetry (SUSY), we scan the parameter space of the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM) with relatively heavy sparticles (1-3 TeV). Then in the parameter space allowed by current ... More

Drag force on a moving impurity in a spin-orbit coupled Bose-Einstein condensateApr 12 2014We investigate the drag force on a moving impurity in a spin-orbit coupled Bose-Einstein condensate. We prove rigorously that the superfluid critical velocity is zero when the impurity moves in all but one directions, in contrast to the case of liquid ... More

Higgs amplitude mode in massless Dirac fermion systemsFeb 23 2016The Higgs amplitude mode in superconductors is the condensed matter analogy of Higgs bosons in particle physics. We investigate the time evolution of Higgs amplitude mode in massless Dirac systems, induced by a weak quench of an attractive interaction. ... More

Design of a capacitor-less low-dropout voltage regulatorMay 05 2014A solution to the stability of capacitor-less low-dropout regulators with a 4pF Miller capacitor in Multi-level current amplifier is proposed. With the Miller compensation, a more than 50{\deg}phase margin is guaranteed in full load. An extra fast transient ... More
