Full text: HTML (1 KB)  PDF  (213 KB)  ( 202 )
Abstract ( 497 )
The Rabi oscillations of the exciton of the excited state in single semiconductor quantum dots were investigated by using the photoluminesence and nano-spectroscopy technique. The population on the excited state oscillated as a function of phase angle of the qubit were recorded, in which pulse-pairs with the adjustable time delay were used as the excitation. The quality factors of free rotation is about 9.8×104, and that of the dynamic rotation is about 18 for the single quantum dot excitonic qubit based on the experimental observations, The decoherece mechanism of Rabi oscillation stem from the capture processes from wetting layer to quantum dot is also analyzed. The exciton coherent control and the statistic characteristics of single photon emission in single semiconductor quantum dot are discussed as well.

Abstract ( 506 )
Some major puzzles in black hole theory and General Relativity, including Hawking radiation, information puzzle, singularity theorem and synchronization of clock rate, are presented. The possible answers are given. We introduce a method to calculate the temperature of a non-stationary black hole; the proof on the information loss during Hawing radiation due to the irreversibility of the process, and the proof on the proper acceleration being infinity for null geodesics. The relation between the synchronization of clock rate and the zeroth law of thermodynamics, and the relation between the singularity theorem and the third law of thermodynamics are pointed out.

Full text: HTML (1 KB)  PDF  (218 KB)  ( 220 )
Abstract ( 452 )
The control time is supposed to be relative large, the averaged system is obtained by using of the averaging theorem in the quantum system. The control field of averaged system is designed by classical optimal control theorem, then analytic expression for the control field is acquired within optimal energy. As a result, the normal iterative solution of a two-point boundary value problem is avoided by the use of averaging optimal control. At last, the method is used to a three-level quantum system. The some analysis are given according to the simulation test results.

Abstract ( 469 )
We investigated the effects of fastigial nucleus electro-stimulation(FNS) in advance on cardiac nerve regeneration after myocardial infarction(MI) in rats. Ninety healthy adults male Wistar rats were randomly divided into 3 groups: group MI was rats ligating the left anterior artery alone; group FNS+MI was rats receiving FNS for 1 h before producing MI; group FNL +FNS+MI was rats undergoing the same procedure like group FNS+MI except that there were lesions of the bilateral fastigial nucleus five days before producing MI. Then every group was randomly divided into three subgroups according to the three time points, that is 1,7,21 d after MI for further study. Mimicing all the operations, Sham-operated group was selected as non-infarction control (Sham group, n=8). Rats were sacrificed at matched time point, and sympathetic or vagus nerve fibers density in the infarcted zone (IZ) and non-infarcted zone (NIZ) in myocardium of these rats, as well as in a group of Sham-operated animals, were examined by displaying tyrosine hydroxylase (TH) and choline acetyl transferase (CHAT) with immunohistochemistry method. Compared to Sham group, the concentration of nerve stained positive decreased significantly for TH or CHAT in IZ and NIZ in MI group (P<0.01); The FNS+MI group had higher concentration of nerve stained positive for TH or CHAT in IZ and NIZ than the MI group at matched time points (P<0.05). There was no significant difference for these stained positive nerves between MI group and FNL+FNS+MI group (P>0.05). FNS could increase the density of sympathetic or vagus nerve fibers for TH or CHAT staining positive in IZ and NIZ in myocardium of MI rats, so FNS could promote cardiac nerve regeneration.

Full text: HTML (1 KB)  PDF  (199 KB)  ( 282 )
Abstract ( 444 )
BGC, HA, β-TCP and biphase calcium phosphate (β-TCP/HA) are modified by using the cold plasma technique in the present study. The study results come from the formation of bone-like apatite in SBF and results of osteoblast culture in vitro, SEM, XPS, and XRD. The results show that the formation of bone-like apatite on dental ceramics modified by cold plasma is easier than that of no modification and the growth of osteoblast can be promoted. The active mechanism is that impact on dental ceramics by means of the particles with high energy and high activity leads to rough and etched surface of ceramics, as well as the distortion of ceramics crystal, which increases solubility of materials and local concentration of Ca and P ions. It is helpful for the formation of bone-like apatite. It is shown that the modification using cold plasma technique can increase the activity of dental ceramics.

Abstract ( 480 )
Systematically collecting and analysing the basic data of hydrogeology, meteorology, water-soil development and social economy, we research the interaction of water and salt of Bostan Lake in natural and artificial conditions in aspect of basins, oasises, lakes and marshes. In order to establish the quantitative relations between water-soil resource development in oasis and the differentiation of lakes and marshes. We consider that Bostan Lake was a little salt-water lake in late 1950s, and the water-soil development of the oasis has aggravated the salinization in recent fifty years. Since the west pumping station was brought into use in 1982, the Bostan Lake which accumulated salt has begun to be desalted and the peacock river water quality has changed from 0.45 g/L to 0.89 g/L?

Full text: HTML (1 KB)  PDF  (180 KB)  ( 285 )
Abstract ( 1241 )
The 3D reconstruction is a research hotspot in the fields of computer vision and close-range photogrammetry. Especially, the 3D reconstruction of objects which are lack of real texture is a great difficulty and challenge. In this study, the slide projector is steered on the foundation of taking images by digital camera traditionally, according to the characteristic lack of real texture. So the camera-projector system is formed. The slide projector can supply the target objects with texture characteristics which are clear and stable so that they are easy to be extracted out and matched well relatively. The space coordinates of the texture characteristics are computed out by the space forward intersection, taking full use of the stereo images composed with the slide of the projector and the images with the texture characteristics taken by the digital camera. The final 3D model is formed by connecting the neighbor space points. The 3D reconstruction based on the camera-projector system in the study is proved and confirmed to be effective and practical by the experimental data and results

Full text: HTML (1 KB)  PDF  (172 KB)  ( 239 )
Abstract ( 456 )
Medicine has a long history in terms of stage of experience and observational medicine. The stage of modern experimental medicine has been developed based on the development of basic medicine developed mainly in form of scientific hypothesis. Scientific hypothesis is characterized by its supposition, science background and testability. Basic medicine and thus experimental medicine have been guided and pushed forward preliminarily by prior-setup of hypothesis or working hypothesis. Modern experimental medicine would now be summarized, guided and promoted by post-setup hypothesis as high and new techniques with high throughput, high sensitivity and high specificity come out in the era of post-genome. People would be facing a novel situation of how to evaluate the quality of scientific grant and article when they are written without clear hypothesis but rich in creativity and risk in the epoch of discovery science characterized by great science and great discovery.
