Sulfate aerosols exert profound impacts on human and ecosystem health, weather, and climate, but their formation mechanism remains uncertain. Atmospheric models consistently underpredict sulfate levels under diverse environmental conditions. From atmospheric measurements in two Chinese megacities and complementary laboratory experiments, we show that the(More)
We construct concrete supersymmetric grand unified theories based on the Pati-Salam gauge group SU(4)c × SU(2)L × SU(2)R which naturally lead to a moderate violation of ‘asymptotic’ Yukawa unification and thus can allow an acceptable b-quark mass even with universal boundary conditions. We consider the constrained minimal supersymmetric standard model which(More)
The heterogeneous chemistry of glyoxal on sulfuric acid surfaces has been investigated at various acid concentrations and temperatures, utilizing a low-pressure fast flow laminar reactor coupled to an ion drift-chemical ionization mass spectrometer (ID-CIMS). The uptake coefficient (γ) of glyoxal ranges from (1.2 ± 0.06) × 10(-2) to (2.5 ± 0.01) × 10(-3)(More)
An improved analysis of b → s+γ decay is given taking into account additional contributions in the supersymmetric sector which enter in the next-to-leading-order (NLO) and are enhanced by tanβ factors. Specifically, we compute a set of twenty one-loop diagrams to give the most complete analysis to date of the NLO supersymmetric corrections. These(More)
An analysis of the sensitivity of supersymmetric dark matter to variations in the b quark mass is given. Specifically we study the effects on the neutralino relic abundance from supersymmetric loop corrections to the mass of the b quark. It is known that these loop corrections can become significant for large tanβ. The analysis is carried out in the(More)
We compute the neutralino-nucleon cross section in several supersymmetric scenarios, taking into account all kind of constraints. In particular, the constraints that the absence of dangerous charge and colour breaking minima imposes on the parameter space are studied in detail. In addition, the most recent experimental constraints, such as the lower bound(More)
A "strategy" for analyte capture/ionization based on chemical derivatization of gold nanorods and infrared laser desorption ionization (IR-LDI) is described. This is the first example of laser desorption/ionization of biomolecules using gold nanorods irradiated with an IR laser. LDI is performed at wavelengths (1064 nm) that overlap with the longitudinal(More)
