This letter describes the relationship between the morphological evolution of heteroepitaxial a-plane GaN films and the formation of the extended defect structure. The initial a-plane GaN growth on a-plane SiC substrates (via a high temperature AlN buffer layer) follows a Volmer-Weber growth mode. Consequently, the coalescence of three-dimensional (3D) islands generates threading dislocations which dominate the nonpolar GaN film's microstructure (3x10(10) cm(-2)). Exposed nitrogen-face surfaces, identified using x-ray diffraction measurements and convergent beam electron diffraction analysis, are present throughout the 3D growth and are the likely source of basal plane faulting (7x10(5) cm(-1)) within the film. Atomic force microscopy and scanning electron microscopy were used to image the morphological transition, which was correlated to changes in the a-GaN crystal tilt mosaic measured by x-ray rocking curves.

The decay tau ->mu(nu)over-bar(i)nu(i) in the Randall-Sundrum background with localized U(1)(Y) gauge boson
Iltan, E. O.; SUNDU PAMUK, HAYRİYE (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2008-02-01)
We study the effects of localization of the U(1)(Y) gauge boson around the visible brane and the contributions of the Kaluza-Klein modes of Z bosons on the branching ratio of the lepton flavor violating tau ->mu(nu) over bar (i)nu(i) decay. We observe that the branching ratio is sensitive to the amount of localization of the Z boson in the bulk of the Randall - Sundrum background.
Phenomenological Analysis of the Pomeron-f Complex in Hadron Total Cross Sections
Hacınlıyan, Avadis (Oxford University Press (OUP), 1977-7-1)
Total cross sections in the range 6≤pL≤280 GeV/c are phenomenologically analyzed in order to extract symmetry properties of the Pomeron-f complex. The compatibility of a two component Pomeron with the second component contributing to NN, πN and KN cross sections in the ratio 9 : 4 : 2 is shown. It is found that ω-f exchange degeneracy critically depends on both f and Pomeron universality. Finally, it is demonstrated that one may interpret the Pomeron contribution as an enhances cut and the f contribution as...
Analysis of various polarization asymmetries in the inclusive b -> s a"" (+) a"" (-) decay in the fourth-generation standard model
BASHIRY, VALİ; Bayar, M. (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2009-06-01)
In this study a systematical analysis of various polarization asymmetries in inclusive b -> s a"" (+) a"" (-) decay in the standard model (SM) with four generation of quarks is carried out. We found that the various asymmetries are sensitive to the new mixing and quark masses for both of the mu and tau channels. Sizable deviations from the SM values are obtained. Hence, b -> s a"" (+) a"" (-) decay is a valuable tool for searching physics beyond the SM, especially in the indirect searches for the fourth-gen...
Searches for electroweak production of charginos, neutralinos, and sleptons decaying to leptons and W, Z, and Higgs bosons in pp collisions at 8 TeV
Khachatryan, V.; et. al. (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2014-09-01)
Searches for the direct electroweak production of supersymmetric charginos, neutralinos, and sleptons in a variety of signatures with leptons and W, Z, and Higgs bosons are presented. Results are based on a sample of proton-proton collision data collected at center-of-mass energy root s = 8 TeV with the CMS detector in 2012, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 19.5 fb(-1). The observed event rates are in agreement with expectations from the standard model. These results probe charginos and neutrali...
Search for massive resonances decaying into WW, WZ, ZZ, qW, and qZ with dijet final states at root s=13 TeV
Sirunyan, A. M.; et. al. (American Physical Society (APS), 2018-04-01)
Results are presented from a search in the dijet final state for new massive narrow resonances decaying to pairs of W and Z bosons or to a W/Z boson and a quark. Results are based on data recorded in proton-proton collisions at root s = 13 TeV with the CMS detector at the CERN LHC. The data correspond to an integrated luminosity of 35.9 fb(-1). The mass range investigated extends upwards from 1.2 TeV. No excess is observed above the estimated standard model background and limits are set at 95% confidence le...
