• Speed of sound in asymmetric quark matter

    分类: 物理学 >> 核物理学 提交时间: 2024-03-04

    摘要: The speed of sound in quark matter is an important physical quantity for studying the properties and the spacetime evolution of quark-gluon plasma (QGP). The behavior of the speed of sound with respect to temperature and density can reveal  to some extent the equation of state and the phase structure of QGP. Building upon the previous studies on the speed of sound in symmetric quark matter,  the formulae for calculating the speed of sound in asymmetric quark matter in the temperature-density space are further derived. The PNJL model is then used to calculate the dependence of the speed of sound on isospin asymmetry. Furthermore, the relationship between the magnitude of the speed of sound and the QCD phase structure is discussed, and  the regions where the acoustic equation fails  are indicated under different physical conditions.

  • The breaking of spin symmetry in the single-particle resonances in deformed nuclei

    分类: 物理学 >> 核物理学 提交时间: 2024-03-01

    摘要: The exploration of spin symmetry (SS) in nuclear physics has been instrumental in identifying
    atomic nucleus structures. In this study, we solve the Dirac equation from the relativistic mean field (RMF)
    in complex momentum representation. We investigated SS and its breaking in single-particle resonant states
    within deformed nuclei, with a focus on the illustrative nucleus 168Er. This was the initial discovery of a resonant spin doublet in a deformed nucleus, with the expectation of the SS approaching the continuum threshold.
    With increasing single-particle energy, the splitting of the resonant spin doublets widened significantly. This escalating splitting implies diminishing adherence to the SS, indicating a departure from the expected behavior as
    the energy levels increase. We also analyzed the width of the resonant states, showing that lower orbital angular
    momentum resonances possess shorter decay times and that SS is preserved within broad resonant doublets, as
    opposed to narrow resonant doublets. Comparing the radial density of the upper components for the bound-state
    and resonant-state doublets, it becomes evident that while SS is well-preserved in the bound states, it deteriorates in the resonant states. The impact of nuclear deformation (β2) on SS was examined, demonstrating that an
    increase in β2 resulted in higher energy and width splitting in the resonant spin doublets, which is attributed to
    increased component mixing. Furthermore, the sensitivity of spin doublets to various potential parameters such
    as surface diffuseness (a), radius (R), and depth (Σ0) is discussed, emphasizing the role of these parameters
    in SS. This study provides valuable insights into the behavior of spin doublets in deformed nuclei and their
    interplay with the nuclear structure, thereby advancing our understanding of SS in the resonance state.

  • Heavy ion energy influence on multiple-cell upsets in small sensitive volumes: From standard to high energies

    分类: 物理学 >> 核物理学 提交时间: 2024-02-29

    摘要: The 28nm process has a high cost-performance ratio and has gradually become the standard for the field
    of radiation-hardened devices. However, owing to the minimum physical gate length of only 35nm, the physical
    area of a standard 6T SRAM unit is approximately 0.16 μm2, resulting in a significant enhancement of
    multi-cell charge-sharing effects. Multiple-cell upsets (MCUs) have become the primary physical mechanism
    behind single-event upsets (SEUs) in advanced nanometer node devices. The range of ionization track effects
    increases with higher ion energies, and spacecraft in orbit primarily experience SEUs caused by high-energy
    ions. However, ground accelerator experiments have mainly obtained low-energy ion irradiation data. Therefore,
    the impact of ion energy on the SEU cross-section, charge collection mechanisms, and MCU patterns and
    quantities in advanced nanometer devices remains unclear. In this study, based on the experimental platform
    of the Heavy Ion Research Facility in Lanzhou (HIRFL), low- and high-energy heavy-ion beams were used
    to study the SEUs of 28nm SRAM devices. The influence of ion energy on the charge collection processes
    of small-sensitive-volume devices, MCU patterns, and upset cross-sections was obtained, and the applicable
    range of the inverse-cosine law was clarified. The findings of this study are an important guide for the accurate
    evaluation of SEUs in advanced nanometer devices and for the development of radiation-hardening techniques.

  • Theoretical analysis of double-differential cross-sections of neutron, proton, deuteron, 3He, and α for the p+6Li reaction

    摘要: Based on the unified Hauser–Feshbach and exciton model, which can describe the particle emission processes between discrete energy levels with energy, angular momentum, and parity conservations, a statistical theory of light nucleus reaction (STLN) is developed to calculate the double-differential cross-sections of the outgoing neutron and light charged particles for the proton-induced 6Li reaction. A significant difference is observed between the p + 6Li and p +7Lireactions owing to the discrepancies in the energy-level structures of the targets. The reaction channels, including sequential and simultaneous emission processes, are analyzed in detail. Taking the double-differential cross-sections of the outgoing proton as an example, the influence of contaminations (such as 1H, 7Li, 12C, and 16O) on the target is identified in terms of the kinetic energy of the first emitted particles. The optical potential parameters of the proton are obtained by fitting the elastic scattering differential cross-sections. The calculated total double-differential cross-sections of the outgoing proton and deuteron at Ep = 14MeVagree well with the experimental data for different outgoing angles. Simultaneously, the mixed double differential cross-sections of 3He and α are in good agreement with the measurements. The agreement between the measured data and calculated results indicates that the two-body and three-body breakup reactions need to be considered, and the pre-equilibrium reaction mechanism dominates the reaction processes. Based on the STLN model, a PLUNF code for the p + 6Li reaction is developed to obtain an ENDF-6-formatted file of the double-differential cross-sections of the nucleon and light composite charged particles.

  • Grain boundary engineering for enhancing intergranular damage resistance of ferritic/martensitic steel P92

    摘要: Ferritic/martensitic (F/M) steels have been widely used as structural material for thermal and nuclear power plants. However, it is susceptible to intergranular damage in service conditions, which is expected to be critical issues. In order to improve the intergranular damage resistance of F/M steel, thermomechanical process (TMP) was employed to achieve a grain boundary engineering (GBE) microstructure in a kind of F/M steel P92 in this study. TMP, including cold rolling to 6%, 9%, and 12% thickness reduction, respectively, followed by austenization at 1323 K for 40 min plus tempering at 1053 K for 45 min, were applied on as-received (AR) P92 steel. Both prior austenite grain (PAG) size, prior austenite grain boundary character distribution (GBCD), and the connectivity of prior austenite grain boundaries (PAGBs) were investigated. Compared with AR specimen, the PAG size does not change significantly. The fraction of coincident site lattice boundaries (CSLBs, 3 ≤ Σ ≤ 29) and Σ3n boundaries along PAGBs decreases with increasing reduction ratio due to the recrystallization fraction increases with increasing reduction ratio. The PAGBs connectivity of the 6%-deformed specimen deteriorates compared with that of AR specimen slightly. Moreover, the potentiodynamic polarization studies revealed that the intergranular damage resistance of studied steel could be improved by enhancing the fraction of CSLBs along PAGBs, indicating that TMP, involving low deformation, could enhance the intergranular damage resistance.

    摘要: 正在建设中的强流重离子加速器装置 HIAF 配备了一条先进的放射性束流线 HFRS,建成后将为中国 高能放射性核束物理研究提供新的机遇。HFRS 的特点是流强极高 (初级束流强度 1 × 1011 ppp),这对用于粒 子鉴别的能损探测器提出了非常高的计数率要求。传统的能损探测器对信号处理一般依次采用电荷灵敏前放、 主放、ADC 的技术路线。该方案存在电子学响应速度较慢、灵活性较差、难以处理高计数率下信号堆积严重 等问题。我们对此提出一种新的适用于高计数率的能损探测器方案:以耐辐照的多次取样电离室为能损探测 器,优化结构和读出方式提高探测器响应速度,使用快电荷灵敏前放对能损探测器信号初步放大后、直接用 波形数字化仪采集波形再进行后续数字算法处理。并利用放射源和束流对该方案进行了验证测试。利用 3 组 分 𝛼 源测试时,对采集的波形使用数字成形算法处理,能量分辨率(FWHM)可达 1.31%。在 RIBLL2 提供 300 MeV/u 的 56Fe 束流测试中,采用时间常数 𝜏f = 2 𝜇𝑠 的快电荷灵敏前放在计数率接近 1 MHz 时仍未发生明显堆积。

  • Atomistic study on the microscopic mechanism of grain boundary embrittlement induced by small dense helium bubbles in iron

    分类: 物理学 >> 核物理学 分类: 核科学技术 >> 核聚变工程技术 提交时间: 2024-02-27

    摘要: The helium bubbles induced by 14 MeV neutron irradiation can cause intergranular fractures in reduced activation ferritic martensitic (RAFM) steel, which is a candidate structural material for fusion reactors. In order to elucidate the susceptibility of different grain boundaries (GBs) to helium-induced embrittlement, the tensile fracture processes of 10 types of GBs with and without helium bubbles in body-centered cubic (bcc) iron at the relevant service temperature of 600 K were investigated via molecular dynamics methods. The results indicate that in the absence of helium bubbles, the GBs studied here can be classified into two distinct categories: brittle GBs and ductile GBs. The atomic scale analysis shows that the plastic deformation of ductile GB at high temperatures originates from complex plastic deformation mechanisms, including the Bain/Burgers path phase transition and deformation twinning, in which the Bain path phase transition is the most dominant plastic deformation mechanism. However, the presence of helium bubbles severely inhibits the plastic deformation channels of the GBs, resulting in a significant decrease in elongation at fractures. For bubble-decorated GBs, the ultimate tensile strength increases with the increase of the misorientation angle. Interestingly, the coherent twin boundary Ʃ3{112} was found to maintain relatively high fracture strength and maximum failure strain under the influence of helium bubbles.

  • Recent Progress on Halo Nuclei in Relativistic Density Functional Theory

    分类: 物理学 >> 核物理学 提交时间: 2024-02-26

    摘要: Since the discovery of the halo nucleus 11Li in 1985, halo phenomena in exotic nuclei have always been an important frontier in nuclear physics research. The relativistic density functional theory has achieved great success in the study of halo nuclei, e.g., the self-consistent description of halo nucleus 11Li and the microscopic prediction of deformed halo nuclei. This paper introduces some recent progresses, including the investigation of halo nucleus 37Mg and the prediction of the N = 28 shell collapse and a deformed halo in the new isotope 39Na based on the deformed relativistic Hartree-Bogoliubov theory in continuum (DRHBc), as well as the exploration of triaxially deformed halo nuclei by the newly developed triaxial relativistic Hartree-Bogoliubov theory in continuum (TRHBc).

  • Studies of an Event Building algorithm of the readout system for the twin TPCs in HFR

    分类: 物理学 >> 核物理学 提交时间: 2024-02-26

    摘要: The High Energy Fragment Separator (HFRS), which is currently under construction, is a leading international radioactive beam device. Multiple sets of position-sensitive Twin Time Projection Chamber (TPC)
    detectors are distributed on HFRS for particle identification and beam monitoring. The twin TPCs’ readout
    electronics system operates in a trigger-less mode due to its high counting rate, leading to a challenge of handling large amounts of data. To address this problem, we introduced an event-building algorithm. This algorithm
    employs a hierarchical processing strategy to compress data during transmission and aggregation. In addition,
    it reconstructs twin TPCs’ events online and stores only the reconstructed particle information, which significantly reduces the burden on data transmission and storage resources. Simulation studies demonstrated that the
    algorithm accurately matches twin TPCs’ events and reduces more than 98% of the data volume at a counting
    rate of 500 kHz/channel.

  • Isotopic dependence of the yield ratios of light fragments from different projectiles and their unified neutron skin thicknesses

    分类: 物理学 >> 核物理学 提交时间: 2024-02-24

    摘要: The yield ratios of neutron-proton (R(n/p)) and 3H-3He (R(3H/3He)) with reduced rapidity from 0 to 0.5 were simulated for 50 MeV/u even-even 36-56Ca + 40Ca, even-even 48-78Ni + 58Ni and 100-139Sn (every third isotopes) + 112Sn at full reduced impact parameters using the isospin-dependent quantum molecular dynamics (IQMD) model. The neutron and proton density distributions and root-mean-square radii of the reaction systems were obtained using the Skyrme-Hartree-Fock model, which was used for the phase space initialization of the projectile and target in IQMD. We defined the unified neutron skin thickness as ΔRnp=2>n1/2-2>p1/2, which was negative for neutron-deficient nuclei. The unified ΔRnp values for nuclei with the same relative neutron excess from different isotopic chains were nearly equal, except for extreme neutron-rich isotopes, which is a type of scaling behavior. The yield ratios of the three isotopic chains-induced reactions, which dependent on the reduced impact parameter and the unified neutron skin thickness, were studied. The results show that both R(n/p) and R(3H/3He) decreased with a reduced impact parameter for extreme neutron-deficient isotopes; however, they increased with reduced impact parameters for extreme neutron-rich isotopes, and increased with the ΔRnp of the projectiles for all reduced impact parameters. In addition, a scaling phenomena was observed between ΔRnp and the yield ratios in peripheral collisions from different isotopic chain projectiles (except for extreme neutron-rich isotopes). Thus, R(n/p) and R(3H/3He) from peripheral collisions were suggested as experimental probes for extracting the neutron or proton skin thicknesses of non-extreme neutron-rich nuclei from different isotopic chains.

  • Sensitivity impacts owing to the variations in the type of zero-range pairing forces on the fission properties using the density functional theory

    分类: 物理学 >> 核物理学 提交时间: 2024-02-21

    摘要: By the Skyrme density functional theory (DFT), potential energy surfaces (PES) of $^{240}$Pu with constraints on the axial quadrupole and octupole deformations($q_{20}$ and $q_{30}$) are calculated.
    The volume-like, and the surface-like pairing forces, and the mixing between these two forces are used, within the Hartree-Fock-Bogoliubov (HFB) approximation. The variations of the least-energy fission path, fission barrier, paring energy, total kinetic energy, scission line, and mass distribution of fission fragments by the different forms of paring force are analyzed and discussed. The fission dynamics is studied based on the time-dependent generator coordinate method (TDGCM) plus Gaussian overlap approximation (GOA). The results show a sensitivity of the mass and charge distributions of fission fragments to the form of the pairing force. Based on the investigation of the neutron-induced fission of $^{239}$Pu, among the volume, mixed, and surface pairing forces, the mixed-type of pairing force can give a good reproduction of experimental data.

  • Study of Primordial Deuterium Abundance in Big Bang Nucleosynthesis

    分类: 物理学 >> 核物理学 提交时间: 2024-02-19

    摘要: Big Bang nucleosynthesis (BBN) theory predicts the primordial abundances of the light elements 2H (referred to as deuterium, or D for short), 3He, 4He, and 7Li produced in the early universe. Among these, deuterium, the first nuclide produced by BBN, is a key primordial material for subsequent reactions. To date, the uncertainty in predicted deuterium abundance (D/H) remains larger than the observational precision. In this study, the Monte Carlo simulation code PRIMAT was used to investigate the sensitivity of 11 important BBN reactions to deuterium abundance. We found that the reaction rate uncertainties of the four reactions d(d, n)3He, d(d, p)t, d(p, γ)3He, and p(n, γ)d had the largest influence on the calculated D/H uncertainty. Currently, the calculated D/H uncertainty cannot reach observational precision even with the recent LUNA precise d(p, γ)3He rate. From the nuclear physics aspect, there is still room to largely reduce the reaction-rate uncertainties; hence, further measurements of the important reactions involved in BBN are still necessary. A photodisintegration experiment will be conducted at the Shanghai Laser Electron Gamma Source (SLEGS) Facility to precisely study the deuterium production reaction of p(n, γ)d.
