The chirality is manifested by the presence of surface Fermi arcs connecting the projections of nodes with opposite ... More

The optical microvariability and spectral changes of the BL Lacertae object S5 0716+714Oct 29 2009We monitored the BL Lac object S5 0716+714 in the optical band during October 2008, December 2008 and February 2009 with a best temporal resolution of about 5 minutes in the BVRI bands. Four fast flares were observed with amplitudes ranging from 0.3 to ... More

The Intrinsic $γ$-ray Emissions of $Fermi$ BlazarsMar 20 2017Beaming effect is important for the observational properties of blazars. In this work, we collect 91 $Fermi$ blazars with available radio Doppler factors. $\gamma$-ray Doppler factors are estimated and compared with radio Doppler factors for some sources. ... More

Radio variability properties for radio sourcesJan 18 2007In this paper, we used the database of the university of Michigan Radio Astronomy Observatory (UMRAO) at three (4.8 GHz, 8.0 GHZ, and 14.5 GHz) radio frequency to analyze the radio light curves by the power spectral analysis method in search of possible ...

Periodic wave solutions of nonlinear equations by Hirota's bilinear methodFeb 08 2006In this paper, we use Hirota's bilinear method to directly construct periodic wave solutions of nonlinear equations. The asymptotic property of periodic wave solutions are analyzed. It is shown that well-known soliton solutions can be reduced from the ... More

Time-resolved magnetophotoluminescence studies of magnetic polaron dynamics in type-II quantum dotsOct 15 2015We used continuous wave photoluminescence (cw-PL) and time resolved photoluminescence (TR-PL) spectroscopy to compare the properties of magnetic polarons (MP) in two related spatially indirect II-VI epitaxially grown quantum dot systems. In the ZnTe/(Zn,Mn)Se ... More

The silicon matrix for the prototype for the Dark Matter Particle ExplorerMar 07 2014May 19 2014A new generation detector for the high energy cosmic ray - the DAMPE(DArk Matter Particle Explorer) is a satellite based project. Its main object is the measurement of energy spectrum of cosmic ray nuclei from 100GeV to 100TeV, the high energy electrons ... More
