Studies of the Liquid Crystal Surface Anchoring Potential using Grandjean-Cano Wedge

22 March in 11:30 (short)

V.A. Belyakov

We extend further the theoretical and experimental studies of the actual surface anchoring potential restoration by polarization microscope technique and using micro-images in a wedge-shaped cell with weak surface anchoring forces filled by a chiral nematic liquid crystal (in Grandjean-Cano Wedge). To realize the theoretically predicted options of observation of large director deviation angles from the easy axes the experimental studies of director distribution in Grandjean-Cano zones were performed for differing easy axes orientations at the wedge surfaces in white light. A weak surface anchoring at one wedge surface was obtained by a photo-alignment technique. A strong surface anchoring at the second wedge surface was obtained by a rubbing. There were observed for the first time jump-less walls (without jumps of the director orientation) between neighboring Grandjean-Cano zones and jumps in color in the Newton's rings (lines) at the positions of the walls between Grandjean-Cano zones. Qualitative explanations of the both phenomena are presented and an expression for the jump in color value in the Newton's rings (lines) at the positions of the walls between Grandjean-Cano zones is presented. Some experimentally found by the polarization microscope and by the micro-photo technique images demonstrate jump-less walls between the first Grandjean-Cano zones. To ensure optimal parameters of the further experiments on the actual surface anchoring potential restoration theoretical calculations of the director distribution in individual Grandjean-Cano zones were performed for various model surface anchoring potentials. It was found that especially promising for description of the experimentally found director distribution looks the modified D-potential. As a result of the present studies the ways to enlarge (compared to the previous studies) angular range of the actual surface anchoring potential restoration were proposed.

Boundary layer of elastic turbulence

15 March in 11:30 (short)

S. Belan, A. Chernykh, V. Lebedev

We consider the near-wall region in elastic turbulence of a dilute polymer solution in the limit of large Weissenberg number. As it was established experimentally, elastic turbulence possesses a boundary layer where the fluid velocity field can be approximated by a steady shear flow with relatively small fluctuations on the top of it. We examine analytically and numerically statistics of the polymer conformation in the boundary layer. An estimate for the ratio of the mean flow to the magnitude of flow fluctuations is obtained. This ratio is determined by the polymer concentration, the radius of gyration of polymers and their length in the fully extended state. The results of our asymptotic analysis reproduce the qualitative features of elastic turbulence at finite Weissenberg numbers.

Physical processes during laser ablation into a liquid and during laser shock-wave pinning

15 March in 11:30 (short)

V.A. Khokhlov, N.A. Inogamov, V.V. Zhakhovsky,Yu.V. Petrov, S.I.Anisomov

The most important modern laser technologies include (1) the generation of colloid nanoparticles (NPs), laser ablation into a liquid (LAL—laser ablation in liquid) and (2) surface hardening of products by laser pinning (LSP—laser shock peening). Significantly, with laser pinning, the surface to be treated is washed with water. Therefore, the physics of processes during ablation into a liquid and during pinning is common. True, the accents are different. If the ablation in the liquid actually forget about the shock wave (SW) generated by the impact, and leaving the thickness of the target, in the problem with pinning, on the contrary, the main question is about the impact. In addition, the role of water in (1) and (2) is different. In (1) fluid contributes to the formation of NPs and adopts NPs, gently slowing them. Whereas in (2) water is needed to enhance the recoil and increase the amplitude of the hydrocarbon in the product. The complete picture, developed in the work, of course, should include both edges: and the formation of ejection into the liquid as a result of ablation—i.e. (1), observation of the SW wave from the nucleation stage to its attenuation in the product volume, i.e. (2).

N.A. Inogamov

In the first part of report the combined action of laser and plasmonic electromagnetic fields which dissipate in a metal film is considered. Fast dissipation of energy of light causes mechanical response moving a film. Motion and subsequent fast re-crystallization result in formation of surface micro-structures used for holographic purposes [1,2]. In the second part the physics of laser fragmentation of a liquid tin micro-droplet is analyzed. This is important for development of next generation of photo-lithography machines [3]. In the third part the indirect monitoring shot-to-shot shock waves strength reproducibility during the pump-probe experiments is studied [4]. The calibrated laser source is used after this checking for generation of shocks; goals for employing of these shocks are described in Albertazzi et al., Science Advances, 3(6), e1602705 (2017).

Three-dimensional numerical simulation of long-lived quantum vortex knots and links in a trapped Bose-Einstein condensate

8 February in 11:30 (short)

V.P. Ruban

Dynamics of simplest vortex knots, unknots, and links of torus type inside an atomic Bose-Einstein condensate in anisotropic harmonic trap at zero temperature has been numerically simulated using three-dimensional Gross-Pitaevskii equation. The lifetime for such quasi-stationary rotating vortex structures has been found quite long in wide parametric domains of the system. This result is in qualitative agreement with a previous prediction based on a simplified one-dimensional model approximately describing dynamics of vortex filaments.

CALCULATION OF THE DISCRETE SPECTRUM OF SOME TWO-DIMENSIONAL SCHR¨ODINGER EQUATIONS WITH A MAGNETIC FIELD

V.G. Marikhin, A.V. Marikhina

One of us previously obtained and integrated the first examples of two-dimensional Schr¨odinger equations with a magnetic field belonging to the class of quasi–exactly solvable problems. It was shown that the wave functions are expressed in terms of degenerations of the Heun function: biconfluent and confluent Heun functions. Algebraic conditions were also found that determine the discrete spectrum and wave functions. Our goal here is to solve these algebraic equations numerically. In some cases, we can find an analytic approximation of the discrete spectrum.

On complex angular diagrams of magnetic conductivity in strong magnetic fields

1 February in 11:30 (short)

A.Ya. Maltsev

We consider angular conductivity diagrams for normal (single-crystal) metals with complex Fermi surfaces in the presence of strong magnetic fields. The behavior of conductivity in this case strongly depends on the direction of the magnetic field and the stable nontrivial regimes of this behavior correspond to special zones of stability on the angular diagram corresponding to certain (topological) properties of the conductivity tensor. As we show, in the general case such diagrams can be divided into two general types, simple (type A) and complex (type B). We will be interested in the diagrams of the second type, which have a number of specific features (an infinite number of stability zones, the presence of chaotic regimes, etc.), which we will consider in more detail.

Collinear photon emission from the quark-gluon plasma in heavy ion collisions

25 January in 11:30

B.G. Zakharov

Making use the light-cone path integral scheme we develop a formalism for collinear photon emission from the quark-gluon plasma (QGP) that accounts for accurately the Landau-Pomeranchuk-Migdal effect. In the case of the QGP without magnetic field we reproduce the AMY (Arnold, Moore, Yaffe (2001)) photon spectrum obtained within the thermal field theory. In the first part of the talk we study the role of running coupling and the effect of variation of the thermal quark mass on contribution of the collinear bremsstrahlung and quark-antiquark annihilation to photon emission in AA collisions in a scheme similar to that used in our previous jet quenching analyses. We find that for a scenario with the thermal quark mass about 50-100 MeV contribution of the higher order collinear processes summed with the 2 \to 2 processes can explain a considerable part (about 50%) of the experimental photon spectrum at k_T about 2-3 GeV for Au+Au collisions at $\sqrt{s}=0.2$ TeV. But for quark mass 300 MeV and for the thermal quark mass predicted by the hard thermal loop scheme the theoretical predictions underestimate considerably the experimental spectrum. In the second part of the talk we discuss a generalization of our formalism to the QGP with magnetic field. We then use it to investigate the effect of magnetic field on the photon emission from the QGP created in AA collisions. We find that even for very optimistic assumption on the magnitude of the magnetic field generated in AA collisions its effect on the photon emission rate is practically negligible. For this reason the magnetic field cannot generate a significant azimuthal asymmetry in the photon spectrum as it was suggested in the analysis by Tuchin (K. Tuchin, Phys. Rev. C{\bf 91}, 014902 (2015)).

Recent applications of the light-cone path integral formalism to the radiative effects in $AA$-collisions due to the induced gluon/photon emission in the QCD matter

18 January in 11:30

B.G. Zakharov

In this talk I discuss some recent applications of the light-cone path integral (LCPI) approach to the induced gluon/photon emission in the quark-gluon plasma (QGP) in $AA$-collisions at RHIC-LHC energies. I start with a brief discussion of the basic formulas of the LCPI formalism. Then I present the results for the nuclear modification of the photon-tagged jets in $AA$ collisions within the jet quenching scheme based on the LCPI approach to the induced gluon emission. The calculations are performed for running coupling. Collisional energy loss is treated as a perturbation to the radiative mechanism. We obtain a reasonable agreement with the recent data from the STAR Collaboration on the mid-rapidity nuclear modification factor $I_{AA}$ for Au+Au collisions at $\sqrt{s}=200$ GeV for parametrization of running $\alpha_s$ consistent with that necessary for description of the data on suppression of the high-$p_T$ spectra. The main part of the talk will be devoted to the radiative contribution to the jet $p_T$-broadening in the QGP. For the first time the analysis of the radiative $p_T$-broadening of a fast quark in the QGP is performed accounting for the real and virtual two-parton states beyond the soft gluon approximation. It is shown that radiative processes can strongly suppress the radiative $p_T$-broadening in the QCD matter (and even make it negative). This prediction is qualitatively different from the results of previous analyses in th soft gluon approximation in the double logarithmic approximation (B. Wu, JHEP 1110, 029 (2011); T. Liou, A. H. Mueller and B. Wu, Nucl. Phys. A916, 102 (2013); J.-P. Blaizot and Y. Mehtar-Tani, Nucl. Phys. A929, 202 (2014)) predicting that radiative processes should significantly increase $p_T$-broadening. Our prediction is consistent with the recent data of the STAR Collaboration (L. Adamczyk et al., Phys.Rev. C96, 024905 (2017)), which do not show any signal of $p_T$-broadening in Au+Au collisions at the energy 200 GeV. At the end of the talk I discuss the the role of running coupling and the effect of variation of the thermal quark mass on contribution of the collinear bremsstrahlung and annihilation to photon emission in $AA$ collisions in a scheme similar to that used in our previous jet quenching analyses.

Inelastic neutron scattering as a confirmation of a new type of gapped surface excitations in liquid helium

18 January in 11:30 (short)

P.D. Grigoriev, A.D. Grigoriev, A.M. Dyugaev

We analyze the experimental data on inelastic neutron scattering by a thin ~5-atomic-layer film of liquid helium at three different temperatures: T=0.4K, 0.98K and 1.3K. The neutron scattering intensity plots, in addition to the previously know dispersion of phonons and ripplons, suggest a branch of gapped surface excitations with activation energy ~4.5K and the dispersion similar to that expected for surfons -- the bound quantum states of helium atoms above liquid helium surface, proposed and investigated theoretically. These data, probably, provide the first direct experimental confirmation of surfons. Before these surface excitations received only indirect experimental substantiation, based on the temperature dependence of surface tension coefficient and on their interaction with surface electrons. The existence of surfons as an additional type of surface excitations, although being debated yet, is very important for various physical properties of He surface. We also analyze previous numerical results on excitations in liquid helium and argue that surface excitations similar to surfons have been previously obtained by numerical calculations and called resonance interface states.

Linear magnetoresistance in the charge density wave state of quasi-two-dimensional rare-earth tritellurides

18 January in 11:30 (short)

P.D. Grigoriev

The magnetoresistance of a TbTe3 two-dimensional conductor with a charge-density wave (CDW) has been measured in a wide temperature range and in magnetic fields of up to 17 T. At temperatures well below the Peierls transition temperature and in high magnetic fields, the magnetoresistance exhibits a linear dependence on the magnetic field caused by the scattering of normal charge carriers by “hot” spots of the Fermi surface. In the sliding CDW regime in low magnetic fields, a qualitative change in the magnetoresistance has been observed associated with the strong scattering of carriers by the sliding CDW.

Dual description of integrable sigma-models

11 January in 11:30

Litvinov Alexey

In my talk I will discuss an example of the weak / strong coupling duality, i.e. equivalence seemingly distinct quantum field theories, so that the strong coupling regime of one theory describes the weak coupling regime of the other, and vice versa. In my example, these are two-dimensional sigma models and boson field theories with exponential interaction. Both theories are integrable. To explain the duality, I will construct a W-algebra commuting with a set of screening operators on one side and solve the Ricci flow equation with given ultraviolet asymptotic boundary conditions.
The report is based joint work with Fateev and Spodyneiko.

Deautonomization of cluster integrable systems

11 January in 11:30

M. Bershtein

Cluster integrable systems have a combinatorial definition in terms of counting dimer configurations on a bipartite graph on a torus. They have a large group of discrete symmetries preserving the Hamiltonian. After deautonomization, the Hamiltonians depend on time, integrability disappears, and discrete symmetry leads to remarkable difference equations, such as the Painleve equations. These equations are solved using the partition functions of five-dimensional supersymmetric theories. The talk is based on joint work with P. Gavrilenko and A. Marshakov.

On the initial conditions in heavy ion collisions at RHIC and LHC energies

21 December 2018 in 11:30 (short)

B.G. Zakharov

We discuss our recent results on the heavy ion collisions at RHIC and LHC energies. We discuss the initial conditions for the entropy distribution in AA-collisions within the Glauber Monte-Carlo model accounting for the effect of the meson-baryon components in the nucleon light-cone wave function. Also, we discuss fluctuations of the electromagnetic fields produced in the non-central AA-collisions in the classical and quantum picture. We show that quantum calculations based on the fluctuation-dissipation theorem give fluctuations of the electromagnetic field that are much smaller than that in the classical Monte-Carlo calculations with the Woods-Saxon nuclear density widely used in the literature.

Quantum corrections to conductivity of disordered electrons due to inelastic scattering off magnetic impurities

21 December 2018 in 11:30

I.S. Burmistrov

We study the quantum corrections to the conductivity of the two-dimensional disordered interacting electron system in the diffusive regime due to inelastic scattering off rare magnetic impurities. We focus on the case of very different g factors for electrons and magnetic impurities. Within the Born approximation for the inelastic scattering off magnetic impurities we find additional temperature-dependent corrections to the conductivity of the Altshuler-Aronov type.

The magnitudes of the various mechanisms of magnetic ordering are theoretically estimated. The estimates obtained are in satisfactory agreement with the experimental data.

Volterra chain and Catalan numbers

21 December 2018 in 11:30 (short)

V.E. Adler, A.B. Shabat

The model problem on the decay of a step for the Volterra chain is formulated as a Cauchy problem with initial condition equal to 0 in one node and 1 in the others. We show that this problem admits an exact solution in terms of the Bessel functions. The Taylor series arising here are related to the exponential generating function for Catalan numbers. Asymptotic formulas for the solution are obtained.

Two-sphere partition functions and Kahler potentials on CY moduli spaces

14 December 2018 in 11:30 (short)

A. Belavin, K. Aleshkin, A. Litvinov

We study the relation between exact partition functions of gauged $N=(2,2)$ linear sigma-models on $S^{2}$ and K\"ahler potentials of CY manifolds proposed by Jockers et all. We suggest to use a mirror version of this relation. For a class of manifolds given by a Fermat hypersurfaces in weighted projective space we check the relation by explicit calculation.

A thermally driven spin-transfer-torque system far from equilibrium: enhancement of the thermoelectric current via pumping current

14 December 2018 in 11:30

I.S. Burmistrov

We consider a small itinerant ferromagnet exposed to an external magnetic field and strongly driven by a thermally induced spin current. For this model, we derive the quasi-classical equations of motion for the magnetization where the effects of a dynamical non-equilibrium distribution function are taken into account self-consistently. We obtain the Landau-Lifshitz-Gilbert equation supplemented by a spin-transfer torque term of Slonczewski form. We identify a regime of persistent precessions in which we find an enhancement of the thermoelectric current by the pumping current.

Mesoscopic supercurrent fluctuations in diffusive magnetic Josephson junctions

23 November 2018 in 11:30

P. A. Ioselevich, P. M. Ostrovsky, Ya. V. Fominov

We study the supercurrent in quasi-one-dimensional Josephson junctions with a weak link involving magnetism, either via magnetic impurities or via ferromagnetism. In the case of weak links longer than the magnetic pair-breaking length, the Josephson effect is dominated by mesoscopic fluctuations. We establish the supercurrent-phase relation (CPR) along with statistics of its sample-dependent properties in junctions with transparent contacts between leads and link. High transparency gives rise to the inverse proximity effect, while the direct proximity effect is suppressed by magnetism in the link. We find that all harmonics are present in the CPR. Each harmonic has its own sample-dependent amplitude and phase shift with no correlation between different harmonics. Depending on the type of magnetic weak link, the system can realize a \varphi_0 or \varphi junction in the fluctuational regime. Full supercurrent statistics is obtained at arbitrary relation between temperature, superconducting gap, and the Thouless energy of the weak link.

Statistics of eigenstates near the localization transition on random regular graphs

23 November 2018 in 11:30

Konstantin Tikhonov

Dynamical and spatial correlations of eigenfunctions as well as energy level correlations in the Anderson model on random regular graphs (RRG) are studied. We consider the critical point of the Anderson transition and the delocalized phase. In the delocalized phase near the transition point, the observables show a broad critical regime for system sizes below the correlation volume and then cross over to the ergodic behavior. Eigenstate correlations allow us to visualize the correlation length that controls the finite-size scaling near the transition. The critical-to-ergodic crossover is very peculiar, since the critical point is similar to the localized phase, whereas the ergodic regime is characterized by very fast diffusion which is similar to the ballistic transport. In particular, the return probability crosses over from a logarithmically slow variation with time in the critical regime to an exponentially fast decay in the ergodic regime. We find a perfect agreement between results of exact diagonalization and those resulting from the solution of the self-consistency equation obtained within the saddle-point analysis of the effective supersymmetric action. We show that the RRG model can be viewed as an intricate limit of the Anderson model in spatial dimensions.
