Li Xi-Han, Li Chun-Yan, Deng Fu-Guo, Zhou Ping, Liang Yu-Jie, Zhou Hong-Yu

Show Abstract
This paper presents a scheme for quantum secure direct communication with quantum encryption. The two authorized users use repeatedly a sequence of the pure entangled pairs (quantum key) shared for encrypting and decrypting the secret message carried by the travelling photons directly. For checking eavesdropping, the two parties perform the single-photon measurements on some decoy particles before each round. This scheme has the advantage that the pure entangled quantum signal source is feasible at present and any eavesdropper cannot steal the message.

Show Abstract
Based on the total time derivative along the trajectory of the time, we study the unified symmetry of Vacco dynamical systems. The definition and the criterion of the unified symmetry for the system are given. Three kinds of conserved quantities, i.e. the Noether conserved quantity, the generalized Hojman conserved quantity and the Mei conserved quantity, are deduced from the unified symmetry. An example is presented to illustrate the results.

Show Abstract
In this paper, the improved Jacobian elliptic function expansion approach is extended and applied to constructing discrete solutions of the semi-discrete coupled modified Korteweg de Vries (mKdV) equations with the aid of the symbolic computation system Maple. Some new discrete Jacobian doubly periodic solutions are obtained. When the modulus $m \rightarrow 1$, these doubly periodic solutions degenerate into the corresponding solitary wave solutions, including kink-type, bell-type and other types of excitations.

Study on an extended Boussinesq equation

Show Abstract
An extended Boussinesq equation that models weakly nonlinear and weakly dispersive waves on a uniform layer of water is studied in this paper. The results show that the equation is not Painlev\'e-integrable in general. Some particular exact travelling wave solutions are obtained by using a function expansion method. An approximate solitary wave solution with physical significance is obtained by using a perturbation method. We find that the extended Boussinesq equation with a depth parameter of $1/\sqrt 2$ is able to match the Laitone's (1960) second order solitary wave solution of the Euler equations.

The acoustoelastic effect on Rayleigh waves in elastic--plastic deformed layered rocks

Show Abstract
On the basis of the acoustoelastic theory for elastic--plastic materials, the influence of statically deformed states including both the elastic and plastic deformations induced by applied uniaxial stresses on the Rayleigh wave in layered rocks is investigated by using a transfer matrix method. The acoustoelastic effects of elastic--plastic strains in rocks caused by static deformations, are discussed in detail. The Rayleigh-type and Sezawa modes exhibit similar trends in acoustoelastic effect: the acoustoelastic effect increasing rapidly with the frequency-thickness product and the phase velocity change approaching a constant value for thick layer and high frequency limit. Elastic--plastic deformations in the Castlegate layered rock obviously modify the phase velocity of the Rayleigh wave and the cutoff points for the Sezawa modes. The investigation may be useful for seismic exploration, geotechnical engineering and ultrasonic detection.

Show Abstract
We consider the problem of trying to send a single classical bit through an amplitude-damping channel when two transmissions through the channel are available as a resource. It is demonstrated that two entangled transmissions can enhance the receiver's capability of making a correct inference under certain conditions compared with two product-state transmissions.

Xiu Xiao-Ming, Dong Li, Gao Ya-Jun, Chi Feng

Show Abstract
In this paper a controlled quantum teleportation scheme of an N-particle unknown state is proposed when N groups of three-particle W1 states are utilized as quantum channels. The quantum information of N-particle unknown state is transmitted from the sender to the recipient under the control of all supervisors. It can be realized with a certain probability. After the sender makes Bell-state measurements and the supervisors perform the computational basis measurements, the recipient will introduce auxiliary particles and carry out unitary transformations depending on classical information from the sender and the supervisors. Finally, the computational basis measurement will be performed by the recipient to confirm whether the teleportation succeeds or not. The successful completion of the scheme relies on all supervisors' cooperation. In addition, the fidelity and security of the scheme are discussed.

Show Abstract
We consider how to teleport two- and three-mode Einstein--Podolsky--Rosen entangled states (|\eta> and | pt,\chi2,\chi3>) via a | pt,\chi2,\chi3> quantum channel for continuous variables. Using the complete and orthogonal representation of the entangled states, we can not only find the a complete basis set for the joint measurement but also propose the specific scheme of teleportation. Our calculation can be greatly simplified by using their Schmidt decompositions.

Full Text: [PDF 95 KB] (Downloads:562)
Show Abstract
This paper proposes a simple scheme for generating a three-atom GHZ state via cavity quantum electrodynamics (QED). The task can be achieved through the interaction between two EPR states, which can be prepared easily with current technology. In this scheme, the cavity field is only virtually excited during the interaction process, and no quantum information transfer between the atoms and the cavity is required. Thus it greatly prolongs the efficient decoherent time. Moreover, this scheme is also applicable for generating an N-atom GHZ state.

Show Abstract
An efficient quantum key distribution (QKD) protocol with orthogonal product states in the 3 \otimes 3 Hilbert space is presented. The sender, Alice, disorders the orthogonal product state sequence and sends it to Bob. After Alice has published the matching information of the particle sequence, Bob recovers the correct correspondences and makes an orthogonal measurement on the orthogonal product states to obtain the information sent by Alice. Finally, security analysis is also made.

Cluster states prepared by using hot trapped ions

Show Abstract
We propose a scheme for the preparation of one-dimensional and two-dimensional cluster states by using hot trapped ions. The scheme is based on the interaction between two ions and bichromatic radiation. The vibrational mode in our protocol is only virtually excited so that the system is insensitive to the thermal field. In addition, we only use two levels of ions as qubits and the successful probability may achieve 100%.

Entanglement in an anisotropic spin-1 Heisenberg chain

Show Abstract
The entanglement in an anisotropic spin-1 Heisenberg chain with a uniform magnetic field is investigated. The ground-state entanglement will undergo two different kinds of transitions when the anisotropy \Delta and the amplitude of the magnetic field B are varied. The thermal entanglement of the nearest neighbour always declines when B increases no matter what the value of the anisotropy is. It is very interesting to note that the entanglement of the next-nearest neighbour can increase to a maximum at a certain magnetic field. Regardless of the boundary condition, the nearest-neighbour entanglement always decreases and approaches to a constant value when the size of the system is very large. The constant value of open boundary condition is much larger than that of periodic boundary condition.

Show Abstract
The performances of a two-mode Gaussian state under parametric amplification, symmetric amplitude damping and thermal noise are studied. The time-dependent complex correlation matrix of the state in evolution is given. The separability of the final two-mode Gaussian state is examined under symmetric amplification and asymmetric amplification separately.

Generation and control of chaos in a Bose--Einstein condensate

Xu Jun, Hai Wen-Hua, Li Hui

Show Abstract
For a Bose--Einstein condensate (BEC) confined in a double lattice consisting of two weak laser standing waves we find the Melnikov chaotic solution and chaotic region of parameter space by using the direct perturbation method. In the chaotic region, spatial evolutions of the chaotic solution and the corresponding distribution of particle number density are bounded but unpredictable between their superior and inferior limits. It is illustrated that when the relation k1\approx k2 between the two laser wave vectors is kept, the adjustment from k21 to k2\ge k1 can transform the chaotic region into regular one or the other way round. This suggests a feasible scheme for generating and controlling chaos, which could lead to an experimental observation in the near future.

Application of periodic orbit theory in chaos-based security analysis

Show Abstract
Chaos-based encryption schemes have been studied extensively, while the security analysis methods for them are still problems to be resolved. Based on the periodic orbit theory, this paper proposes a novel security analysis method. The periodic orbits theory indicates that the fundamental frequency of the spiraling orbits is the natural frequency of associated linearized system, which is decided by the parameters of the chaotic system. Thus, it is possible to recover the plaintext of secure communication systems based on chaotic shift keying by getting the average time on the spiraling orbits. Analysis and simulation results show that the security analysis method can break chaos shift keying secure communication systems, which use the parameters as keys.

Show Abstract
In this paper multiple delay feedback control (MDFC) with different and independent delay times is shown to be an efficient method for stabilizing fixed points in finite-dimensional dynamical systems. Whether MDFC can be applied to infinite-dimensional systems has been an open question. In this paper we find that for infinite-dimensional systems modelled by delay differential equations, MDFC works well for stabilizing (unstable) steady states in long-, moderate- and short-time delay regions, in particular for the hyperchaotic case.

Continuous feedback control of KdV Burgers system

Show Abstract
The chaos in the KdV Burgers equation describing a ferroelectric system has been successfully controlled by using a continuous feedback control. This system has two stationary points. In order to know whether the chaos is controlled or not, the instability of control equation has been analysed numerically. The numerical analysis shows that the chaos can be converted to one point by using one control signal, however, it can converted to the other point by using three control signals. The chaotic motion is converted to two desired stationary points and periodic orbits in numerical experiment separately.

Show Abstract
The impulsive control of chaotic systems, which are subjected to unbounded exogenous perturbations, is considered. By using the theory of impulsive differential equation together with the fuzzy control technique, the authors propose an impulsive robust chaos controlling criterion expressed as linear matrix inequalities (LMIs). Based on the proposed control criterion, the procedure for designing impulsive controllers of common (perturbed) chaotic systems is provided. Finally, a numerical example is given to demonstrate the obtained theoretical result.

Show Abstract
Based on a modified Lorenz system, a relatively simple four-dimensional continuous autonomous hyperchaotic system is proposed by introducing a state feedback controller. The system consists of four coupled first-order ordinary differential equations with three nonlinear cross-product terms. Some dynamical properties of this hyperchaotic system, including equlibria, stability, Lyapunov exponent spectrum and bifurcation, are analysed in detail. Moreover, an electronic circuit diagram is designed for demonstrating the existence of the hyperchaos, and verifying computer simulation results.

Nonchaotic random behaviour in the second order autonomous system

Show Abstract
Evidence is presented for the nonchaotic random behaviour in a second-order autonomous deterministic system. This behaviour is different from chaos and strange nonchaotic attractor. The nonchaotic random behaviour is very sensitive to the initial conditions. Slight difference of the initial conditions will generate wholly different phase trajectories. This random behaviour has a transient random nature and is very similar to the coin-throwing case in the classical theory of probability. The existence of the nonchaotic random behaviour not only can be derived from the theoretical analysis, but also is proved by the results of the simulated experiments in this paper.

Noise-induced striped trajectories of Rossler systems

Show Abstract
In this paper, the generation of striped trajectories in phase space by noise-injection is considered. With suitable amplitudes of noise, the steady-state system orbits appear in rectangular striped shape. The relationship between the shape (including the range and the number of stripes) and some parameters is discussed. The result shows that noise can also generate the striped shape effectively and simply, which is similar to the newly-discovered striped pattern generated by controlled Rossler systems.

Density functional theory for molecular orientation of hard rod fluids in hard slits

Full Text: [PDF 631 KB] (Downloads:631)
Show Abstract
A density functional theory (DFT) is used to investigate molecular orientation of hard rod fluids in a hard slit. The DFT approach combines a modified fundamental measure theory (MFMT) for excluded-volume effect with the first order thermodynamics perturbation theory for chain connectivity. In the DFT approach, the intra-molecular bonding orientation function is introduced. We consider the effects of molecular length (i.e. aspect ratio of rod) and packing fraction on the orientations of hard rod fluids and flexible chains. For the flexible chains, the chain length has no significant effect while the packing fraction shows slight effect on the molecular orientation distribution. In contrast, for the hard rod fluids, the chain length determines the molecular orientation distribution, while the packing fraction has no significant effect on the molecular orientation distribution. By making a comparison between molecular orientations of the flexible chain and the hard rod fluid, we find that the molecular stiffness distinctly affects the molecular orientation. In addition, partitioning coefficient indicates that the longer rodlike molecule is more difficult to enter the confined phase, especially at low bulk packing fractions.

Show Abstract
In the functional properties of complex networks, modules play a central role. In this paper, we propose a new method to detect and describe the modular structures of weighted networks. In order to test the proposed method, as an example, we use our method to analyse the structural properties of the Chinese railway network. Here, the stations are regarded as the nodes and the track sections are regarded as the links. Rigorous analysis of the existing data shows that using the proposed algorithm, the nodes of network can be classified naturally. Moreover, there are several core nodes in each module. Remarkably, we introduce the correlation function $G_{rs}$, and use it to distinguish the different modules in weighted networks.

Electronic structure and defect states of transition films from amorphous to microcrystalline silicon studied by surface photovoltage spectroscopy

Show Abstract
In this paper, surface photovoltage spectroscopy (SPS) is used to determine the electronic structure of the hydrogenated transition Si films. All samples are prepared by using helicon wave plasma-enhanced chemical vapour deposition technique, the films exhibit a transition from the amorphous phase to the microcrystalline phase with increasing temperature. The film deposited at lower substrate temperature has the amorphous-like electronic structure with two types of dominant defect states corresponding to the occupied Si dangling bond states (D0/D- and the empty Si dangling states (D+). At higher substrate temperature, the crystallinity of the deposited films increases, while their band gap energy decreases. Meanwhile, two types of additional defect states is incorporate into the films as compared with the amorphous counterpart, which is attributed to the interface defect states between the microcrystalline Si grains and the amorphous matrix. The relative SPS intensity of these two kinds of defect states in samples deposited above 300\du increases first and decreases afterwards, which may be interpreted as a result of the competition between hydrogen release and crystalline grain size increment with increasing substrate temperature.

Show Abstract
In this paper single ultra-fast voltage pulses are introduced to the Pt/Ir tip of a scanning tunnelling microscope (STM), and the non-destructive threshold of the graphite surface is studied systematically in a wide range of pulse durations (from 10$^{4}$ to 8\,ns). Considering the waveform distortion of the pulses at the tunnelling region, this paper gives the corrected threshold curve of pulse amplitude depending on pulse duration. A new explanation of threshold power has been suggested and fits the experimental results well.

Show Abstract
In-line x-ray phase contrast imaging has attracted much attention due to two major advantages: its effectiveness in imaging weakly absorbing materials, and the simplicity of its facilities. In this paper a comprehensive theory based on Wigner distribution developed by Wu and Liu [Med. Phys. 31 2378-2384 (2004)] is reviewed. The influence of x-ray source and detector on the image is discussed. Experiments using a microfocus x-ray source and a CCD detector are conducted, which show the role of two key factors on imaging: the tube voltage and tube current. High tube current and moderate tube voltage are suggested for imaging.

Show Abstract
The cross sections for the production of nuclides of element 108 via hot fusion evaporation reactions are studied using a two-parameter Smoluchowski equation. The optimal reactions for the synthesis of new nuclides of element 108 with mass numbers from 266 to 271 are suggested. The macroscopic-microscopic approach predicts a strong deformed shell closure at Z \approx 108 and N=162. The synthesis of more nuclides of element 108 is meaningful to the confirmation of the existence of this deformed shell closure.

Show Abstract
The International Linear Collider (ILC), which is based on super-conducting RF acceleration technology, requires the damping rings to provide beams with extremely small equilibrium emittance, and large acceptance to ensure good injection efficiency for high-emittance, and high-energy spread beam from the positron source. In order to reduce the cost for ILC damping rings, an alternative lattice which is different from the baseline configuration design has been designed with modified FODO arc cells, and the total quadrupole number has been reduced by half. At the same time, to decrease the total cost involved in constructing access shafts needed to supply power, cryogenics etc. for the wigglers and other systems, the number of wiggler sections is decreased from 8 to 4, and further to 2. This new lattice has been optimized to have a good dynamic aperture. This alternative ILC damping ring lattice design will reduce the cost largely as compared with the baseline design.

Show Abstract
We have studied the effect of the spontaneously generated coherence (SGC) on gain of lasing without inversion (LWI) in a closed three-level $\Lambda $-type atomic system with Doppler broadening. It is shown that, regardless of the driving and probe fields being co- or counter-propagating, at a suitable value of the Doppler width, we can obtain a much larger LWI gain with SGC than that without SGC; and the region of the LWI gain spectrum with SGC is obviously larger than that without SGC. When the Doppler width takes a constant value, the gain does not monotonically decrease or increase with increasing strength of SGC, the largest LWI gain can be obtained by adjusting strength of SGC. Generally speaking, the co-propagating probe and driving fields is favourable to obtain a larger LWI gain.

Show Abstract
Considering two identical two-level atoms interacting with a single-mode thermal field through two-photon processes, this paper studies the atomic coherence control on the entanglement between two two-level atoms, and finds that the entanglement is greatly enhanced due to the initial atomic coherence. The results show that the entanglement can be manipulated by changing the initial parameters of the system, such as the superposition coefficients and the relative phases of the initial atomic coherent state and the mean photon number of the cavity field.

Show Abstract
This paper obtains the exact analytical solution of atomic Raman--Nath diffraction in the coordinate representation and discusses the influence of different initial conditions and detunings on the atomic spatial population distribution. The phase difference between the dipole matrix element and initial atomic population may influence the atomic spatial population distribution after diffraction, which has never been discussed before as far as we know. It offers a method to measure the phase by the spatial population distribution, which is interesting in the study of quantum optics.

Show Abstract
For experiments such as on Ni-like Ag x-ray laser, driven by 1\omega laser, the gain region is only several~nm depth near the target surface, this paper proposes a new two-layer target, in which a thin layer (several nm depth) of silver is plated on the surface of some other materials. Furthermore, the Ni-like Ag 13.9~nm x-ray laser produced by three new kinds of two-layer target with CH, Al and Ge as foundation, was theoretically studied.

Show Abstract
In most collisional schemes of x-ray laser (XRL) experiments, a bow-like intensity distribution of XRL is often observed, and it is generally ascribed to the two-dimensional hydrodynamic behaviour of expanding plasma. In order to better understand its essence in physics, a newly developed two-dimensional non-equilibrium radiation hydrodynamic code XRL2D is used to simulate a quasi-steady state Ni-like Ag XRL experiment on ShenGuang-II facility. The simulation results show that the bow-like distribution of Ni-like ions caused by over-ionization in the central area of plasma is responsible for the bow-like shape of the XRL intensity distribution observed.

Show Abstract
In this paper, the lattice Boltzmann method is applied to simulate a dumbbell moving in a pressure-driven flow in a planar channel with the stress-integration method for the evaluation of hydrodynamic force acting on the cylinders. The simulation results show that the dumbbell also has the important feature of the Segr\'e--Silberberg effect like a particle in a Poiseuille flow. The dumbbell trajectories, orientations, the cylinders vertical velocities and angular velocities all reach their equilibrium values separately independent of their initial positions. It is also found that the dumbbell equilibrium positions depend on the flow Reynolds number, blockage ratio and elastic coefficient. This study is expected to be helpful to understand the dynamics of polymer solutions, polymer synthesis and reaction, etc.

Show Abstract
Close-coupling calculations based on an R-matrix formalism are performed for the 1s--2p resonance photoionizations from the low-lying states of boron-like carbon ions. The resonance energies, widths and oscillator strengths of 1s-2p core excitations are determined by analysing the calculated photoionization cross sections. Our calculations are in reasonable agreement with the experimental and theoretical results presented by other authors. The present numerical values may help to analyse the astrophysical and laboratory plasmas.

Show Abstract
The elastic scattering properties for collisions between cold and ultracold 39K atoms in a triplet state are investigated. Based on the recent theoretical and experimental results, the improved hybrid potential is presented for a triplet a3\Sigmau+ ground state of K2. Our calculated value of the s-wave scattering length a by using the Numerov method for the triplet state is 79.578a0 and found to be in good agreement with the previous ones. The numbers of bound states are supported by the molecular potential. Pronounced shape resonances appear for the l = 3 partial waves for the a3\Sigmau+ state. Furthermore, the s-wave scattering cross section, the total cross section and energy positions of shape resonances for the a3\Sigmau+ state are calculated.

Show Abstract
The comparison between single-point energy scanning (SPES) and geometry optimization (OPT) in determining the equilibrium geometries of c3\Sigma+g and B1u states of dimer 7Li2 is made at numerous basis sets by using a symmetry-adapted-cluster configuration-interaction (SAC-CI) method in the Gaussian 03 program package. In this paper the difference of the equilibrium geometries obtained by SPES and by OPT is reported. The results obtained by SPES are found to be more reasonable than those obtained by OPT in full active space at the present SAC-CI level of theory. And the conclusion is attained that the cc-PVTZ is a most suitable basis set for these states. The calculated dissociation energies and equilibrium geometries are 0.8818 eV and 0.3090 nm for c3\Sigma+g state, and 0.3668 eV and 0.2932 nm for B1u state respectively. The potential energy curves are calculated over a wide internuclear distance range from about 2.5a0 to 37a0 and have a least-squares fit into the Murrell--Sorbie function. According to the calculated analytic potential energy functions, the harmonic frequencies (\omegae and other spectroscopic data (\omegae \chie , \Be and \alphae are calculated. Comparison of the theoretical determinations at present work with the experiments and other theories clearly shows that the present work is the most complete effort and thus represents an improvement over previous theoretical results.

Show Abstract
In this paper a projectile ions--recoil ions coincidence technique is employed to investigate the target ionization and projectile charge state changing processes in the collision of 0.22--6.35 MeVCq+(q = 1-4) ions with argon atoms. The partial cross section ratios of the double, triple, quadruplicate ionization to the single ionization (or the single capture) of argon associated with single electron loss (or single electron capture) by the projectile are measured and compared with the previous experimental results. In the present experiment, it is observed that the ratios of ionization cross sections R associated with single loss and single capture depend strongly on the projectile charge state and vary significantly with different reaction channels as impact energy increases. In addition, this paper gets empirical scaling laws for the ionization cross section ratios R corresponding to the projectile single loss and finds that the ratios of the double ionization to the single ionization associated with single electron capture remain constant in the present energy range.

Show Abstract
Target ionization accompanied with projectile electron loss is investigated for 0.2--7 MeV Cq+(q=1-4) with He and 0.25--5 MeV Oq+(q=1-4) with He collisions. For projectile single-electron loss channel, the He double-to-single ionization ratio R is nearly independent of projectile charge state but dependent on the nuclear charge of projectile Zp. The results are analysed with atomic structure qualitatively. So far there have not existed the experimental data comparable with our results, to our knowledge. The ratio $R$ is interpreted in terms of the two-step mechanism. This analysis agrees well with similar experiments in the literature.

Show Abstract
This paper investigated phase change Si1Sb2Te3 material for application of chalcogenide random access memory. Current--voltage performance was conducted to determine threshold current of phase change from amorphous phase to polycrystalline phase. The film holds a threshold current about 0.155~mA, which is smaller than the value 0.31~mA of Ge2Sb2Te5 film. Amorphous Si1Sb2Te3 changes to face-centred-cubic structure at \sim 180℃ and changes to hexagonal structure at \sim 270℃. Annealing temperature dependent electric resistivity of Si1Sb2Te3film was studied by four-point probe method. Data retention of the films was characterized as well.

Show Abstract
Neural firing patterns are investigated by using symbolic dynamics. Bifurcation behaviour of the Hindmarsh--Rose (HR) neuronal model is simulated with the external stimuli gradually decreasing, and various firing activities with different topological structures are orderly numbered. Through constructing first-return maps of interspike intervals, all firing patterns are described and identified by symbolic expressions. On the basis of ordering rules of symbolic sequences, the corresponding relation between parameters and firing patterns is established, which will be helpful for encoding neural information. Moreover, using the operation rule of $\ast$ product, generation mechanisms and intrinsic configurations of periodic patterns can be distinguished in detail. Results show that the symbolic approach is a powerful tool to study neural firing activities. In particular, such a coarse-grained way can be generalized in neural electrophysiological experiments to extract much valuable information from complicated experimental data.

Show Abstract
The fundamental and second order strongly nonlocal solitons of the nonlocal nonlinear Schr\"{o}dinger equation for several types of nonlocal responses are calculated by Ritz's variational method. For a specific type of nonlocal response, the solutions of the strongly nonlocal solitons with the same beam width but different degrees of nonlocality are identical except for an amplitude factor. For a nonlocal case where the nonlocal response function decays in direct proportion to the $m$th power of the distance near the source point, the power and the phase constant of the strongly nonlocal soliton are in inverse proportion to the $(m+2)$th power of its beam width.

Under the consideration of non-steady case, a set of equations is derived, which describes the non-steady nonlinear interactions between plasma and field in the far wake region of a space vehicle. Numerical calculations are also made and the numerical results show that density cavities and electromagnetic solitary waves are generated due to the modulation instability, if the envelope of high frequency modulation field is strong enough. This is of great significance to the detection of disguised space vehicles.

Show Abstract
The diffusion behaviours of vanadium implanted p- and n-type 4H-SiC are investigated by using the secondary ion mass spectrometry (SIMS). Significant redistribution, especially out-diffusion of vanadium towards the sample surface is not observed after 1650℃ annealing for both p- and n-type samples. Atomic force microscopy (AFM) is applied to the characterization of surface morphology, indicating the formation of continuous long furrows running in one direction across the wafer surface after 1650℃ annealing. The surface roughness results from the evaporation and re-deposition of Si species on the surface during annealing. The chemical compositions of sample surface are investigated using x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS). The results of C 1s and Si 2p core-level spectra are presented in detail to demonstrate the evaporation of Si from the wafer and the deposition of SiO2 on the sample surface during annealing.

Show Abstract
Based on the scheme of damped harmonic oscillator quantization and thermo-field dynamics (TFD), the quantization of mesoscopic damped double resonance RLC circuit with mutual capacitance--inductance coupling is proposed. The quantum fluctuations of charge and current of each loop in a squeezed vacuum state are studied in the thermal excitation case. It is shown that the fluctuations not only depend on circuit inherent parameters, but also rely on excitation quantum number and squeezing parameter. Moreover, due to the finite environmental temperature and damped resistance, the fluctuations increase with the temperature rising, and decay with time.

Show Abstract
Single crystals of Te-doped dichalcogenides 2H-NbSe2-xTex(x = 0, 0.10, 0.20) were grown by vapour transport method. The effect of Te doping on the superconducting and charge-density wave (CDW) transitions has been investigated. The sharp decrease of residual resistance ratio, RRR = R(300K)/R(8K), with increasing Te content was observed, indicating that the disorder in the conducting plane is induced by Te doping. Meanwhile the superconducting transition temperature, Tc, decreases monotonically with Te content. However, the CDW transition temperature, TCDW, shown by a small jump in the temperature dependence of the resistivity near 30~K, increases slightly. The results show that the suppression of superconductivity might be caused by the enhancement of CDW ordering. The disorder has little influence on the CDW ordering.

Show Abstract
Lidar (Light detection and ranging) system monitoring of the atmosphere is a novel and powerful technique tool. The Raman lidar is well established today as a leading research tool in the study of numerous important areas in the atmospheric sciences. In this paper, the principle of Raman lidar technique measurement CO2 concentration profile is presented and the errors caused by molecular and aerosol extinction for CO2 concentration profile measurement with Raman lidar are also presented. The standard atmosphere extinction profile and `real-time' Hefei area extinction profile are used to conduct correction and the corresponding results are yielded. Simulation results with standard atmosphere mode correction indicate that the errors caused by molecule and aerosol extinction should be counted for the reason that they could reach about 8 ppm and 5~ppm respectively. The relative error caused by Hefei area extinction correction could reach about 6%. The errors caused by the two components extinction influence could produce significant changes for CO2 concentration profile and need to be counted in data processing which could improve the measurement accuracies.
