  • A search is performed for electroweak production of a vector-like top quark partner T of charge 2/3 in association with a standard model top or bottom quark, using 2.3 fb –1 of proton-proton collision data atmore » $$\sqrt{s}$$ = 13 TeV collected by the CMS experiment at the CERN LHC. The search targets T quarks decaying to a top quark and a Higgs boson in fully hadronic final states. For a T quark with mass above 1 TeV the daughter top quark and Higgs boson are highly Lorentz-boosted and can each appear as a single hadronic jet. Jet substructure and b tagging techniques are used to identify the top quark and Higgs boson jets, and to suppress the standard model backgrounds. An excess of events is searched for in the T quark candidate mass distribution in the data, which is found to be consistent with the expected backgrounds. Upper limits at 95% confidence level are set on the product of the single T quark production cross sections and the branching fraction B(T → tH), and these vary between 0.31 and 0.93 pb for T quark masses in the range 1000-1800 GeV. Finally, this is the first search for single electroweak production of a vector-like T quark in fully hadronic final states.« less
  • A method of preparation of a linear close-packed array of point-like light sources based on a nanocomposite of gold nanoparticles and tetracene is proposed. Ordered system of microleads to the light sources with packing density up to 1000 mm{sup −1} consists of linear conducting chains of cobalt nanoparticles self-assembled in a magnetic field. The electroluminescence from the gold-tetracene nanocomposite occurs in the visible range typical of organic light-emitting field-effect transistors based on tetracene. A theoretical substantiation of the possibility of excitation of tetracene molecules by hot electrons emitted from the gold nanoparticles is suggested and compared with other possible physical mechanisms.
  • The decay properties of the high-spin states in /sup 56/Co and /sup 56/Fe have been investigated via the /sup 54/Fe(..cap alpha.., pn)/sup 56/Co*(..gamma..) and /sup 54/Fe(..cap alpha.., 2p)/sup 56/Fe*(..gamma..) reactions in the energy range 20.4 to 29.5 MeV. From measurements of excitation functions and angular distributions of individual ..gamma.. rays with a Ge(Li)--NaI(Tl) anti-Compton spectrometer, and from ..gamma gamma..-coincidence experiments, new levels in /sup 56/Co have been identified at 2282.6 (7/sup +//sub 1/), 2371.9 (6/sup +//sub 1/), 3638.0 (8/sup +//sub 1/), 4180.2 (9/sup +//sub 1/), and 5274.6 (10/sup +//sub 1/) keV with the deduced J/sup ..pi../ values in parentheses. Similarly,more » levels in /sup 56/Fe have been confirmed at 3388.4 (6/sup +//sub 1/), 3755.8 (6/sup +//sub 2/), 4700.6 (7/sup +//sub 1/), 5255.3 (8/sup +//sub 1/), and 5626.8 (8/sup +//sub 2/) keV, and the J/sup ..pi../ values in parentheses have been deduced. The angular distributions in conjunction with the associated attenuation factors were analyzed to yield multipole mixing ratios delta(E2/M1). The mean lifetimes tau of these states were also carefully measured by extrapolation to the detection threshold of the effective mean lifetimes extracted from Doppler-broadened line shapes obtained at four bombardment energies between 20.4 and 29.5 MeV. Values were obtained in /sup 56/Co for the following levels: 2282.6 keV (>2000 fs), 2371.9 keV (60 +- 30 fs), 3638.0 keV (80/sup +40//sub -//sub 30/ fs), 4180.2 keV (590 +- 60 fs), and 5274.6 keV (60/sup +40//sub -//sub 20/ fs); and in /sup 56/Fe values were found for levels at 3388.4 keV (>2000 fs), 3755.8 keV (180/sup +40//-/sub 30/ fs), 4700.6 keV (120 +- 40 fs), 5255.3 keV (500 +- 50 fs), and 5626.8 keV (100/sup +40/-/sub 20/ fs). For most of the transitions from the high-spin states in /sup 56/Co and /sup 56/Fe B(..lambda..) values were obtained. The results for /sup 56/Fe are compared with recent calculations based on the aligned coupling scheme. The results for /sup 56/Co are compared with other recent shell-model calculations. (AIP)« less
  • The inclusive light hadronic decays of {sup 1}D{sub 2} heavy quarkonia are studied within the framework of the nonrelativistic QCD at the leading order in v and up to the order of {alpha}{sub s}{sup 3}. With one-loop QCD corrections, the infrared divergences and Coulomb singularities in the decay amplitudes are proved to be absorbed by the renormalization of the matrix elements of corresponding nonrelativistic QCD operators, and the infrared finite short-distance coefficients are obtained through the matching calculations. By taking the factorization scale to be 2m{sub Q}, the light hadronic decay widths are estimated to be about 274, 4.7, andmore » 8.8 KeV for {eta}{sub c2}, {eta}{sub b2}, and {eta}{sub b2}', respectively. Based on the above estimates, and using the E1 transition width and dipion transition width for {eta}{sub c2} estimated elsewhere, we get the total width of {eta}{sub c2} to be about 660-810 KeV, and the branching ratio of the E1 transition {eta}{sub c2}{yields}{gamma}h{sub c} to be about (44-54)%, which will be useful in searching for this missing charmonium state through, e.g., {eta}{sub c2}{yields}{gamma}h{sub c} followed by h{sub c}{yields}{gamma}{eta}{sub c}.« less
