It is currently unclear whether the new line at ~3.5 keV, recently detected in various samples of galaxy clusters, the Andromeda galaxy and the central part of our Galaxy, is caused by potassium emission lines. By using the latest astrophysical atomic emission line data base, AtomDB v. 3.0.2, we show that the most promising method to check its potassium origin directly will be the study of the K XIX emission line complex at ~3.7 keV using forthcoming X-ray imaging spectrometers such as the Soft X-ray spectometer onboard the Astro-H mission or the microcalorimeter onboard the Micro-X sounding rocket experiment. In order to further reduce the remaining (factor of ~3-5) uncertainty of the 3.7/3.5 keV ratio, more precise modelling should be performed, including the removal of significant spatial inhomogeneities, a detailed treatment of background components, and the extension of the modelled energy range.

Two rectangular models described by the one-dimensional Schrödinger equation with sharply localized potentials are suggested. The potentials have a multilayer thin structure being composed from adjacent barriers and wells. Their peculiar tunneling properties are studied in considerable detail. Particularly, in the zero-range limit when the potentials are squeezed to a single point, sharp peaks with total transmission are observed at certain (positive and negative) quantized values of the potential strength constant forming infinite discrete sets. Beyond these sets, the barrier-well structures behave as a perfectly reflecting wall. The transcendental equations with respect to potential strengths, the solutions of which determine transmission (resonance) sets, are derived. In this regard, both the models are exactly solvable. The energy dependence of an incident particle is shown to reveal a resonance behavior, being completely different from that observed in a typical double-barrier structure. © 2013 American Physical Society.

The model of elastic scattering amplitudes dominated by the triple (at t=0) Pomeron pole suggested earlier is modified to confront to existing experimental data on pp and p̄p total and differential cross sections at √s≥19 GeV and |t|≤14.2 GeV2 including the newest TOTEM data. Predictions for the future TOTEM measurements at 13 and 14 TeV are given. © 2013 American Physical Society.

The one-dimensional Schrödinger equation with the point potential in the form of the derivative of Dirac's delta function, λ δ′ (x) with λ being a coupling constant, is investigated. This equation is known to require an extension to the space of wave functions ψ (x) discontinuous at the origin under the two-sided (at x = ± 0) boundary conditions given through the transfer matrix ((A, 0; 0, A- 1)) where A = frac(2 + λ, 2 - λ). However, the recent studies, where a resonant non-zero transmission across this potential has been established to occur on discrete sets {λn}n = 1 ∞ in the λ-space, contradict to these boundary conditions used widely by many authors. The present communication aims at solving this discrepancy using a more general form of boundary conditions. © 2010 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.

The photoinduced switch of the current through a single molecule is studied theoretically by including plasmon excitations of the leads. A molecule weakly linked to two spherical nanoelectrodes is considered resulting in sequential charge transmission scheme. Taking the molecular charging energy (relative to the equilibrium lead chemical potential) to be comparable to the molecular excitation energy, an efficient current switch in a low voltage range becomes possible. A remarkable enhancement of the current is achieved due to simultaneous plasmon excitations in the electrodes. The behavior is explained by an increased molecular absorbance due to oscillator strength transfer from the electrode plasmon excitations and by a net excitation energy motion from the electrodes to the molecule. © 2011 American Chemical Society.
