    Single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) of 0.4 nm in diameter are produced inside channels of microporous zeolite single crystals. Three possible structures: (5,0), (4,2), and (3,3) contribute to three bands at 1.37, 2.1, and 3.1 eV in optical absorption spectra. The direct correspondence between...

    The selective reflection of cholesteric liquid crystals (CLCs) is well-known and has been utilized in a number of dynamic optical applications. This work presents a novel approach to passively (e.g., all-optically) cue reflection notch broadening in photoresponsive CLC formulations based on high...

    We report that normal incidence reflection and transmission of circularly polarized electromagnetic waves from and through planar split-ring microwave metamaterials with chiral symmetry breaking depends on the incidence direction and handedness of circular polarization. The effect has a resonant...

    Two modified versions of the NJL model are investigated. The first one has the SU(2) chiral symmetry and describes the spin 1 ρ meson starting from a 4-point tensor interaction. The second one has the SU(3) symmetry and implements the trace anomaly of QCD. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.

    The modification of the ρ-meson mass inside a finite nucleus will be discussed from an effective model of nuclear matter. Recent experiments have shown that there is a substantial decrease in the ρ-meson mass inside the He[sup 3] nucleus. Some authors have claimed that this is a signature...

    We first indicated that if the collective modes with the mass 500–700 MeV exists in the I=J=0 channel, various empirical facts in hadron physics can be naturally accounted for, which otherwise would remain mysterious. We proposed several experiments to produce and detect the σ in...
