**Abstract:**

Using Monte Carlo simulation,the process of J/ψ→γX→γηη′(η′→γρ0,ρ0→π+π-,η→γγ)is studied on BEPCⅡ/BESⅢ. Based on the better performance of BESⅢ and the large J/ψ data sample,it's possible to search for glueball state candidates and confirm their existence. Based on the study of this J/ψ radiative decay channel,it provides us some useful data for the selection of crystal BGO or CsI of electromagnetic calorimeter and for the selection of magnetic field intensity.

**Abstract:**

There are many models beyond the standard model predicting the existence of non-universal gauge bosons Z′,which can give rise to very rich phenomena. We calculate the contributions of the non-universal gauge bosons Z′,predicted by topcolor-assisted technicolor (TC2) models and flavor-universal TC2 models,to the lepton flavor-violation tau decays τ →l iγ and τ →l il jl k. We find that the branching ratio Br(τ →l il jl k) is larger than that of the process τ →l iγ in all of the parameter space. Over a sizable region of the parameter space,we have Br(τ →l il jl k)～10

^{－8},which may be tested in the future experiments.

**Abstract:**

In this paper we investigate the production of top-pion π0 t of the topcolor assisted technicolor (TC2) model with b quark pair at e+e- colliders. We find that the cross section of the process e

^{+}e

^{－}→b bπ0 t is larger than that of e

^{+}e

^{－}→b bH0 in the standard model,and is approximately the same as that of the process e

^{+}e

^{－}→b bh0(b bH0,b bA0)in the minimal supersymmetric model. With reasonable values of the parameter,the cross section can reach 10fb. The neutral top-pion π0 t may be observed directly via this process at the next linear colliders.

**Abstract:**

High-spin states in odd-odd

^{172}Re have been investigated via the

^{149}Sm(

^{27}Al,4nγ)

^{172}Re reaction through excitation functions, X-γ and γ-γ coincidence measurements. A level scheme consisting of three rotational bands has been identified for the first time,extending the high-spin studies of A≈170 odd-odd nuclei to the currently lightest rhenium isotope. The three bands have been assigned to be built on the πh

_{11/2}⊙νi

_{13/2},πh

_{9/2}⊙νi

_{13/2}and π1/2

^{－}[541]⊙ν1/2

^{－}[521] configurations according to their rotational properties in quasiparticle alignments, signature splitting, in-band B(M1)/B(E2) ratios, level spacing systematics, band crossing frequencies, as well as the existing knowledge in neighboring nuclei. Low-spin signature inversion has been confirmed in the first two bands due to observation of signature crossing at high-spin states.

**Abstract:**

Within the isospin dependent Extended Brueckner-Hartree-Fock framework,the three-body force effects on the single particle potentials of a neutron and a proton in isospin asymmetric nuclear matter and their isospin denpendence have been investigated. It is shown that the contribution of the three-body force is repulsive. At low density, i.e., around and below the empirical saturation density, the effect of the three-body force is rather small, while as increasing density, it becomes more and more pronounced. It is also found that at a given density, the three-body effect increases with isospin asymmetry.

**Abstract:**

With use of the Bonn potential, a modifed relativistivic mean field model is proposed when the effects of in-medium hadron masses are considered by the Brown-Rho scaling. Then, the model is extended to investigate the equation of state of nuclear matter at finite temperature when the scaling parameter is caliberated by the properties of nuclear matter ground state.

**Abstract:**

We have carried out a study of A～50 isotopes in the framework of axially deformed relativistic mean-field theory. The ground-state properties of Ti(N22-32), Cr(N20-34) and Fe(N22-36) isotopic chains have been obtained. The separation energies of

^{53}Ni and

^{54}Ni are given, from which we have investigated the stability of the nuclei. We concluded that there is little possibility to reach the high-spin states of

^{45}Cr and

^{49}Fe.

**Abstract:**

Nuclear lifetime shift of charged atom, due to lack of internal conversion (isomer) or electron capture transition (β decay), is analyzed. Theoretical predict is given, that electron density of inner shell at nuclear surface decreases and energy level also decreases with increasing of charge state, nuclear lifetime increases slightly with previous reason but increases with a jump when energy level drops to a critical value. The shifts of halflife are compared for internal conversion with different nuclear decay energy and different type of transitions. A common used computer code of this calculation created by ourselves, and the calculation results are compared with experiment one.

**Abstract:**

Time-dependent fission rate is calculated numerically by simulating a set of Langevin equations. The results show that in the stationary limit the fission rate does not approach to those based on both Kramers formula with constant mass and modified Kramers formula, whenever the temperature is higher than a half of the fission barrier. Considering coordinate-dependent mass plays an important role in the fission rate, we proposed an effective potential, thus an improved Kramers formula is obtained, which is still valid when the temperature is increased to the same as the barrier height. The present results are in good agreement with the fission rate determined in the scission point by using Langevin simulation.

**Abstract:**

We developed a new kind of material, which is used to construct the prototype of a large area resistive plate chamber (RPC). In this paper, the structure of RPC, the curves of efficiency, counting rate, dark current, multiple hit and signal amplitude versus high voltage measured using cosmic ray are presented. It shows that the RPC efficiency is close to 98%, counting rate and dark current are superior to currently operating detectors worldwide. Its performances well satisfy the requirements of high energy physics experiments.

**Abstract:**

A method based on the transverse particle motion equation is described for the calculation of beam acceptance for RFQ accelerators. The result is given for a four-vane type RFQ accelerator with specific structure parameters. The system acceptance for proton beam is 0.0153 cm·rad in x-x′ phase space, and 0.0114 cm·rad in y-y′ phase space. The method can also be applied for the calculation of acceptance for other RF accelerators with known structures and linear transverse electric fields.

**Abstract:**

For the beam transport system in storage ring, linear coupling is mainly caused by skew quadrupole and longitudinal solenoid field. It leads to emittance exchange and beam envelope augment. By using betatron motion of single particle in the presence of skew quadrupole and longitudinal solenoid field, the effect of the beam linear coupling is preliminarily investigated. Beam emittance variation due to skew quadrupole is obtained too.

**Abstract:**

With Lie algebraic methods, we analysed the nonlinear transport of particle motions in electrostatic quadrupoles up to third order. The procedures are: first, set up the Hamiltonian for the electrostatic quadrupoles, then expand the Hamiltonian into a sum of homogeneous polynomials of different degrees, finally, calculate the particle's nonlinear trajectories up to third order. Higher orders could be obtained if necessary.

^{19}F ions of 5.28×10

^{16}cm

^{－2}have been observed during the post-annealing by a positron annihilation lifetime technique for the first time. The voids start to appear at 450℃. The void radius keeps nearly constant at ～0.29nm and the number of voids increases with increasing the annealing temperature from 550℃ to 750℃. Afterwards, the radius of voids increases rapidly with the annealing temperature and reaches 1.10nm at 1050℃.
