Title: Photonic states mixing beyond the plasmon hybridization model

Abstract

A study is performed on a photonic-state mixing-pattern in an insulator-metal-insulator cylindrical silver nanoshell and its rich variations induced by changes in the geometry and dielectric media of the system, representing the combined influences of plasmon coupling strength and cavity effects. This study is performed in terms of the photonic local density of states (LDOS) calculated using the Green tensor method, in order to elucidate those combined effects. The energy profiles of LDOS inside the dielectric core are shown to exhibit consistently growing number of redshifted photonic states due to an enhanced plasmon coupling induced state mixing arising from decreased shell thickness, increased cavity size effect, and larger symmetry breaking effect induced by increased permittivity difference between the core and the background media. Further, an increase in cavity size leads to increased additional peaks that spread out toward the lower energy regime. A systematic analysis of those variations for a silver nanoshell with a fixed inner radius in vacuum background reveals a certain pattern of those growing number of redshifted states with an analytic expression for the corresponding energy downshifts, signifying a photonic state mixing scheme beyond the commonly adopted plasmon hybridization scheme. Finally, a remarkable correlation is demonstrated betweenmore » the LDOS energy profiles outside the shell and the corresponding scattering efficiencies.« less

  • In the standard model (SM) the photon in radiative {ovr B}{sup 0} and {ovr B}{sub s} decays is predominantly left handed. Thus, mixing-induced {ital CP} asymmetries in b{r_arrow}s{gamma} and b{r_arrow}d{gamma} are suppressed by m{sub s}/m{sub b} and m{sub d}/m{sub b} , respectively, and are very small. In many extensions of the SM, such as the left-right symmetric model (LRSM), the amplitude of right-handed photons grows proportional to the virtual heavy fermion mass, which can lead to large asymmetries. In the LRSM, asymmetries larger than 50{percent} are possible even when radiative decay rate measurements agree with SM predictions. {copyright} {ital 1997}more » {ital The American Physical Society}« less

  • We present results for the {delta}S=2 matrix elements which are required to study neutral kaon mixing in the standard model (SM) and beyond . We also provide leading chiral order results for the matrix elements of the electroweak penguin operators which give the dominant {delta}I=3/2 contribution to direct CP violation in K{yields}{pi}{pi} decays. Our calculations were performed with Neuberger fermions on two sets of quenched Wilson gauge configurations at inverse lattice spacings of approximately 2.2 GeV and 1.5 GeV. All renormalizations were implemented nonperturbatively in the regularization-independent/momentum (RI/MOM) scheme, where we accounted for subleading operator product expansion corrections and discretizationmore » errors. We find ratios of non-SM to SM matrix elements which are roughly twice as large as in the only other dedicated lattice study of these amplitudes. On the other hand, our results for the electroweak penguin matrix elements are in good agreement with two recent domain-wall fermion calculations. As a by-product of our study, we determine the strange quark mass. Our main results are summarized and discussed in Sec. VII. Within our statistics, we find no evidence for scaling violations.« less
