This paper proposes a new isotropic cellular automaton (CA) model for reproducing the Belousov–Zhabotinsky reaction observed in excitable media. Although several CA models have been proposed that exhibit isotropic patterns of the reaction, most of them need complicated rules, a large number of neighboring cells, and multiple thresholds to decide the excitation condition of cells. The proposed model uses only one threshold and simple time-evolution rules on the basis of states of selected neighboring cells; the selected cells are randomly chosen from eight neighboring cells. It is this randomness in selecting neighboring cells that causes the model to generate isotropic patterns. This study shows that patterns generated by the proposed model are highly isotropic. Furthermore, we use simulation results to elucidate how generated patterns are related to the initial states assigned to central cells. © Springer International Publishing Switzerland 2014.

We fabricated and investigated a plasmonic racetrack resonator with a trench structure. Trench channel plasmon polaritons excited by end-fire coupling at a wavelength of 633 nm are observed in the fabricated racetrack resonator. The racetrack resonator also worked as a plasmonic racetrack resonator. The experimental and simulation results of the electric field distributions are in good agreement. © 2012 Springer-Verlag.

We calculate emission rates of various bosonic/fermionic soft massless states of an open/closed superstring from an ensemble of a highly excited open/closed superstring in the flat background. The resulting spectrum shows thermal distributions at the Hagedorn temperature. We find greybody factors for each process and observe their relation to the ones from black holes. © 2013 American Physical Society.

We have presented a strain-sensing device in microscale by using surface plasmon polaritons and multimode interference effects. The device is numerically investigated by the finite-difference time-domain method. Optimum depths and length of the structure are designed for sensing a strain. The size of the designed structure is several micrometers and is about a thousandth compared with a fiber Bragg grating strain sensor. The sensitivity of the designed structure is 11.34 pm/μ𝜖 that is about ten times larger than that of a fiber Bragg grating strain sensor. The temperature sensitivity of the designed structure is 34.43 pm/ ∘C. This temperature sensitivity is three times larger than that of a fiber Bragg grating strain sensor. Therefore, temperature compensation techniques are needed for the structure. The presented structure has a simple design such as a plasmonic waveguide with a trench structure. The simple structural design device has a capability of being used in micro- and nano-electromechanical systems. © 2014, Springer Science+Business Media New York.

Surface of an InAs wetting layer on GaAs(001) preceding InAs quantum dot (QD) formation was observed at 300°C with in situ scanning tunneling microscopy (STM). Domains of (1 × 3)/(2 × 3) and (2 × 4) surface reconstructions were located in the STM image. The density of each surface reconstruction domain was comparable to that of subsequently nucleated QD precursors. The distribution of the domains was statistically investigated in terms of spatial point patterns. It was found that the domains were distributed in an ordered pattern rather than a random pattern. It implied the possibility that QD nucleation sites are related to the surface reconstruction domains. © 2010 The Author(s).
