    In contrast to group-III arsenide-based quantum dots, group-III nitride-based quantum dots are much smaller in size and have less conduction band offset. For this reason, it is important to take into account the electron-hole Coulomb interaction in which the spherical quantum dot is substituted...

    A macroscopic Coulomb-ordered structure of polydisperse CeO2 particles is observed experimentally in a laminar spray of weakly ionized thermal plasma under atmospheric pressure and temperature of about 1700 K. Diagnostic instruments are used to measure plasma parameters. The particles are...

    We reconsider the Berezinskiı–Kosterlitz–Thouless (BKT) transition to an insulating state in Coulomb-dominated Josephson junction arrays. We show that the previously predicted picture of the Cooper-pair BKT transition at T=T[sub 2] is valid only under the condition that T[sub 2]...

    We developed the theory of Coulomb drag current induced in a one-dimensional nanowire by the ballistic nonohmic current in a nearby parallel nanowire under the ballistic transport regime. As in the ohmic case, we predict sharp oscillations of the drag current as a function of gate voltage or...

    The angular distributions of the fragments from a Coulomb explosion of a diatomic heteronuclear molecule during multielectron dissociative ionization in a superintense field are considered in terms of classical mechanics. The patterns of angular distributions of the Coulomb explosion fragments...
