A new approach for calculating the Nambu-Gorkov propagator in color superconductivity theoryAug 30 2005Sep 03 2005In this article, we propose a new approach to calculate the Nambu-Gorkov propagator intuitively with some linear algebra techniques in presence of the scalar diquark condensates. With the help of energy projective operators, we can obtain relatively simple ... More

Quantum-memory-assisted entropic uncertainty principle under noiseMar 15 2012The measurement outcomes of two incompatible observables on a particle can be precisely predicted when it is maximally entangled with a quantum memory, as quantified recently [Nature Phys. 6, 659 (2010)]. We explore the behavior of the uncertainty relation ... More

Dissipative dynamics of quantum discord under quantum chaotic environmentOct 19 2010We investigate the dissipative dynamics of quantum discord in a decoherence model with two initially entangled qubits in addition to a quantum kicked top. The two qubits are uncoupled during the period of our study and one of them interacts with the quantum ... More

Determination of the Sign of g factors for Conduction Electrons Using Time-resolved Kerr RotationDec 23 2009The knowledge of electron g factor is essential for spin manipulation in the field of spintronics and quantum computing. While there exist technical difficulties in determining the sign of g factor in semiconductors by the established magneto-optical ... More

Chiral and helical $p$-wave superconductivity in doped bilayer BiHSep 17 2018We investigate the superconductivity (SC) driven by correlation effects in electron-doped bilayer BiH near a type-II van Hove singularity (vHS). By functional renormalization group, we find triplet $p$-wave pairing prevails in the interaction parameter ... More
