Photonic states mixing beyond the plasmon hybridization model
Abstract
A study is performed on a photonicstate mixingpattern in an insulatormetalinsulator 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 »

In the standard model (SM) the photon in radiative {ovr B}{sup 0} and {ovr B}{sub s} decays is predominantly left handed. Thus, mixinginduced {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 leftright symmetric model (LRSM), the amplitude of righthanded 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 »

Mixinginduced CP asymmetries in radiative B decays in and beyond the Standard Model
In the Standard Model (SM) the photon in radiative {anti B}{sup 0} and {anti B}{sub s} decays is predominantly lefthanded. Thus, mixing induced 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 leftright symmetric model (LRSM), SU(2)xU(1) models with exotic fermions and SUSY, the amplitude of righthanded photons grows proportional to the virtual heavy fermion mass, which can lead to large asymmetries. As an example, in the LRSM, asymmetries larger than 50% are possible evenmore » 
$$B^0_{(s)}$$mixing matrix elements from lattice QCD for the Standard Model and beyond
We calculate—for the first time in threeflavor lattice QCD—the hadronic matrix elements of all five local operators that contribute to neutral B ^{0} and B _{s}meson mixing in and beyond the Standard Model. We present a complete error budget for each matrix element and also provide the full set of correlations among the matrix elements. We also present the corresponding bag parameters and their correlations, as well as specific combinations of the mixing matrix elements that enter the expression for the neutral Bmeson width difference. We obtain the most precise determination to date of the SU(3)breaking ratio ξ=1.206(18)(6), where themore »Cited by 15
