A reliable analytical expression for the maximum energy (γmax) of the accelerated electrons in the bubble regime is derived. The presented equation is more consistent than the previous equation derived by Kostyukov et al. [Phys. Plasmas 11, 5256 (2004)]. The (γmax) derived by I. Kostyukov et al. was two time larger than γmax observed in the particle in the cell (PIC) simulations. This new equation explains the monoenergetic electron energy more accurately in the relativistic regime and is in consistence with the observed PIC simulations.

    We present the lepton sector phenomenology of a supersymmetric flavour model based on a SU(3) horizontal symmetry. This model successfully reproduces the observed fermion masses and mixings, without introducing unacceptably large SUSY sources of flavour and CP violation. We show that the model,...

    The effect of trapped electrons on the ion temperature gradient (ITG) mode in a regime where its wavelength is shorter than the conventional ITG mode (k⊥ρLi≤1) has been studied. Such a mode propagates in the ion diamagnetic direction with a typical scale length k⊥ρLi>1 and...

    Electron acceleration in vacuum induced by a tightly focused chirped laser pulse has been studied. For a fixed laser output power, the tightly focused chirped laser pulse can accelerate electrons to much higher energies. Focusing laser down to the order of wavelength requires inclusion of terms...

    A two-dimensional model is used to study the geometrical effects of a nonmagnetic (NM) nanowire upon a spin-polarised electron current in a lateral spin-valve structure. We found that the implemented ratchet shapes at the centre of the NM have a crucial effect on the diffusive rate for up- and...

    Introducing an epitaxial growth technique called corner overgrowth, we fabricate a quantum confinement structure consisting of a high-mobility GaAs/AlGaAs heterojunction overgrown on top of an ex situ cleaved substrate corner. The resulting corner-junction quantum-well heterostructure...

    A quantum critical point (QCP) develops in a material at absolute zero when a new form of order smoothly emerges in its ground state. QCPs are of great current interest because of their singular ability to influence the finite temperature properties of materials. Recently, heavy-fermion metals...

    By examining the electric field induced processes in glasses and glass-metal nanocomposites (GMN) we propose mechanism of the electric field assisted dissolution (EFAD) of metal nanoparticles in glass.
