The Study of Impurity States in Low Dimensional Heterostructure

Project Summary:
      With the recent advancement in nanofabrication technology, it has now been possible to manufacture low dimensional nanostructure such as two dimensional quantum wells,extremely thin quantum wires, and even zero dimensional quantum dots of artificial semiconductor microcrystal. The physical phenomenon associated to the impurity states in such low dimensional heterostructures is an important aspect of physics. Moreover, the knowledge of these states has fundamental as well as technical importance. As of now, most of the low-dimensional nanostructures are  made of  ionic or polar crystals. So, the interaction of electron(hole) with the longitudinal phonons is an important mechanism which can strongly influence the impurity states as well as the physical properties of the low dimensional heterostructures in polar crystals. The polarons (bipolarons) may be the possible candidate to explain the observed physical properties (e.g. conductivity, optical absorption spectra etc.)of  these  low dimensional heterostructures. This research project primarily deals with the study of polaron/bipolaron states in a low dimensional heterostructures. With an objective of this project to understand the physics behind the physical phenomenon associated to the impurity states in mesoscopic system,we are investigating the role of polaron or bipolaron on the physical properties of low dimensional heterostructures in polar crystals. This is very much necessary to improve the nanodevice technology.
   We have carried out an extensive study of model potentials for various complex systems with an objective to develop a suitable model potential  for the description of polaron in a low dimensional heterostructures.

      The net outcome of this work is going to enhance our understanding of  low dimensional microsrystals which have potential application in nano device technology.


 Project Summary:

         During the past few years, there has been intense discussion about the existence, the nature and the origin of the correlations in DNA sequences. Different techniques have been used for the analysis, Despite the continuing debate on different methods on rather struggling questions, it is now well admitted that certain kind of correlation do exist in genomic sequences and it is not just an artifact of the non uniformity in the composition of genes. But, their biological interpretation still remains a continuing debate and furthermore, it  is still an open question whether the correlation properties are different for protein-coding and non-coding regions of nucleotide sequence and how they can be related to the expression and regulation of genes.
      This research project mainly deals with the study of nucleotide base correlations in Genomic DNA sequences.  The major part of the project will comprise of developing a suitable mathematical model to find the existence , the nature and the origin of any correlation in DNA sequences.
     With an objective   to find the existence ,the nature and the origin of any correlation in a DNA sequence and thus, to understand the nucleotide structure of the coding region in a genomic DNA sequences which is believed to contain vast information of our life cycle, an extensive investigation is being carried out to develop a computational approach to search for a characteristic function which will behave differently(with  the hypothesis that  nucleotide base structure  and correlation  is different  for coding and  non-coding regions) in coding and  non-coding regions of the Genomic DNA sequences. Recently,we have attempted to devise an expression measure of a gene from relative codon  bias(RCB). There are number of measures currently in use that quantify codon usage in genes. Based on the hypothesis that gene expressivity and codon composition is strongly correlated, RCB has been defined to provide an intuitively meaningful measure of an extent of  the codon preference in  a gene. We have developed a simple approach to assess the strength of RCB(RCBS) in genes as a guide to their likely expression level and illustrate this with an analysis of Escherichia Coli and Yeast genomes. Our efforts to quantitatively predict gene expression levels in Escherichia Coli  and Yeast met with high level of success. Surprisingly, we observe a strong correlation between RCBS and protein length indicating natural selection in favour of shorter genes to be expressed at higher level.The agreement of our result with high protein abundances, micro array data and radioactive data demonstrates that genomic expression profile available in our method can be applied in a meaningful way to the study of cell physiology and also for more detailed studies of particular gene of interest.
       Finally, we aim to develop an algorithm on the basis of the previous analysis to annotate the Gene in a Genomic DNA sequence.


      tRNAs are  the key components in amino-acid synthesis , their uses are expanding exponentially with time , including in the specialized areas of design of drugs.All tRNAs are characterized by a secondary structure made up of three hairpin loops and a terminal helical stem(cloverleaf) which fold into an L-shaped  tertiary structure. The main functional regions in tRNA are the anticodon triplets which read the messenger RNA(mRNA)codons and the 3’ CCA nucleotides where an amino acid cognate  to the tRNA is attached. Codon degeneracy for the 20 amino acids requires  tRNAs with distinct anticodons(tRNA isoaccepterors) to read codons for each amino acid. There are 21 isoacceptor families, one for each amino acid and one for seleno-cysteine. An isoacceptor family may consist of one or more tRNA members.tRNA isoacceptors have been the main targets for biological, biochemichal and computational studies of tRNA function. The abundance of tRNA isoacceptors correlates with the codon usage of highly abundant proteins.But a number of studies have revealed that the number of tRNA species is greater than the total number of isoacceptors. In these cases ,it is found that the number of tRNA genes have  the same anticodon but different sequences elsewhere in the tRNA body. These are called tRNA isodecoder genes. Furthermore, the fraction of tRNA isodecoder genes among all tRNA genes increases across the phylogenetic spectrum. The phylogenetic relationship of tRNA  isodecoder genes suggests that some may perform unique functions in organisms belonging to same phylogenetic branch. Few efforts have been devoted to study the potential functions of tRNA isodecoders. The benefit of having a collection of tRNA isodecoders in translation is not very clear till now and the unique role of tRNA isodecoders is yet to be determined. As the database of tRNA sequences expanded, algorithms to annotate tRNAs became available .Presently two powerful software are used for tRNA annotation . These are tRNAscan-SE  and ARAGORN .These softwares are being used to locate and identify tRNAs in the newly sequenced genomes . Up until recently the split tRNAs remained outside the reach of the two above-mentioned  software . At present the new version of ARAGORN annotates  the split tRNAs .We have observed the deficiencies in the above two software . Many archaeal and eukaroytic  tRNAs  contain introns . Most of these introns are at canonical position , i.e., between 37 and 38 of  tRNA .These are the canonical introns . Though the length of the canonical intron is somewhat arbitrary , they are fairly easily accounted for by the present software .  The difficulty arises for noncanonical introns . These are  introns located at position other than canonical . These are of arbitrary length . Detecting these are difficult , sometimes beyond the capabilities of the existing software . As we looked closely over the archaeal domain we found many non-annotated  tRNAs .  This continues to be a major challenge.
       There are a few things that are known generally about tRNA introns . These relate to the exon-intron boundaries . The secondary structure at the boundary is the bulge-helix-bulge(BHB) .Looking carefully over this BHB one quickly discovers many variations on the so-called standard BHB. Most of the canonical-intron-exon boundaries have the standard  two-fold- axis-symmetric BHB . It is important to emphasize that even for canonical- intron-exon boundaries there are variations about this standard motif . The splice-site is on the bulges of the BHB . For the noncanonical-intron-exon boundaries the variations- on- the-standard become the rule . The BHB may not be quite symmetric . This led us to put forward  the alternate intron splicing ansatz . Suffice to say the present tRNA-annotating softwares  falls woefully short when noncanonical introns appear in tDNA sequences .In course of running the project, we feel to develop an algorithm to annotate tRNA genes
        As of now  we are at advanced stages of development of a software which takes  care of canonical and noncanonical introns . The bulge-helix-bulge motif at the exon-intron boundaries are checked , the splice sites identified , the anticodon marked . Currently we are fixing a  few remaining bugs and glitches . Some tRNAs are believed  to appear in halves . A generalized split-tRNA software is currently under advanced stage of development in our laboratory .The results we have generated using these software give us the  confidence that these  are useful and contemporary .
      The objectives of this project is  to detect and quantify relative amounts of  tRNA isodecoders in different speces and to understand their roles in the life cycle.
  During the past few years, there has been intense discussion about the existence,and the nature of the diversity in tRNA  genes(tRNA isodecoders). Different techniques have been used for the analysis. Due to the continuing debate on different methods on rather struggling questions, it is now well admitted that certain kind of correlation do exist between the diversity of tRNA genes and the life cycle and it is not just an artifact of the non uniformity in the composition of genes. But, their biological interpretation still remains a continuing debate and furthermore, it  is still an open question whether the tRNA isodecoders are harmful or useful in translation and can be related to the expression and regulation of genes.
      We are carrying out an extensive study of isodecoder genes for different species.The entire research work is being divided  into two parts: a) Collection of Raw data ,and  b) Theoretical analysis. In the first step we gather data towards the construction of the database of tRNA of different species  to study their individual characteristics and unique features.  The major part of the project is to classify different varieties of tRNA e.g.,(1)tRNA-gene that are simple , containing no introns,(2) tRNAs-genes that have canonical introns   ;(3) tRNA-genes with noncanonical intron.(4) Special and exotic  tRNA-genes , such as the ones with stop-anticodons and  construct the data base for isoacceptor families.
      Finally, we will analyse the base nucleotide structure of the tRNAs by an extensive study and will develop an algorithm to identify the isodecoder genes.


The theoretical developments in the resonance scattering theory during the last few years have gained considerable impetus due to its increasing importance in various areas of atomic and chemical physics. Specifically , the resonant scattering theory has led to simple models for many collisional  processes which are of great importance in many laboratory, atmospheric and astrophysical environments.
          The computation of scattering wavefunctions is a very difficult task because of their non L2 nature. An L2 approximation to a resonance state can be obtained by diagonalization of the Hamiltonian after it has been projected onto an L2 basis set. The Feshbach projection techniques, the stabilization method , the complex coordinate rotation method etc. are the big steps forward in the development of  purely  L2 method to determine resonance energy and width.
            Parallel to these developments in the computation of resonances using  L2 techniques, Complex absorbing potential(CAP) method comes out to have the great advantage over the other existing methods and motivate us to extend the method to the treatment of the complex atoms and molecules.
             The CAP method consists of the introduction of the complex absorbing potential to the physical Hamiltonian leading to an effective Hamiltonian. We have employed CAP method to a model potential to establish the method as a viable computational procedure to compute the energy of the resonance states. The agreement with the exact results gives us confidence in our numerical results. We, then, step forward to apply this method in the Stark problem.Our results  in hydrogen atom are convincingly good in comparison with those obtained by other existing methods. Our interest lies in developing new computational technique in the area of resonance calculation for the many electron systems to produce fruitful results in atomic collision process. So far, there has not been exhaustive study of stark effect in Li atom due to computational difficulties of the exsisting techniques when applied to non hydrogen system. We have predicted interesting results for Li and also studied the evolution of resonances in parallel electric and magnetic field. The application of this method to larger system is always possible and is in progress.


         The study of atomic processes in plasma has gained considerable interest over the past few decades. Generally, plasma is short lived and exits in a state very far from thermal equilibrium. Thus, a detailed understanding of various atomic processes is essential for an adequate description of large number of phenomena associated with  diverse field of astrophysical plasmas, rare gas lasers , fusion plasmas etc.  The plasma environment can be expected to significantly influence various atomic processes primarily through the screening of the long range electrostatic interaction of charged particles.
        The photoionization  process is the subject of special attention in plasma physics because it is extremely sensitive to the details of atomic structure and the correlation effects between atomic electrons.  The cross sections of photoionization  for atoms in dense plasma are likely to be different from those of free atoms due to  screening effect of the surrounding plasma ions .
       The calculation of photoionisation cross section involves sums and integrals which go over all optically bound and continuum atomic states..In principle, the cross section for photoionization can be calculated when accurate wave functions are known for the states of the target atom. The difficulties associated with replacing the continuum integral by a finite sum over square integrable(L2) basis sets have been discussed by earlier authors. There have been a number of studies suggesting that the conventional bound state techniques may be successfully employed to calculate the photoionization cross section of atoms and molecules. It has been known for some time that the Complex –coordinate rotation method[28] can successfully be applied to the calculation of photoionization cross sections.
           We have developed a computational scheme  to investigate the influence of plasma environment on photoionization of atoms and ionized atoms within the framework of the method of complex coordinate rotation.  In this approach, the atomic system is considered to be composed of  an atomic ion core and the valence electron. Irrespective of the structure of the ion core, the interaction between the valence electron and the core is represented by a model potential Vm(r).  The basic idea of model potential is to simulate the multielectron core interaction with the single valence electron in an analytical modification of the Coulomb potential. The use of model potential, which includes the average effect of the passive electrons, not only provides a much simpler way to study the multielectron systems, but is also useful in understanding the physical interpretation of the phenomenon in which a reduced number of electrons are involved.
      A number of studies have been done to investigate the  influence of plasma on the photoionization of  hydrogen, helium, lithium and sodium atoms. These studies reveal that strong screening remarkably alters the photoionization cross section over a considerable range of photon energy, but the influence of plasma is considerably reduced for the energetic photon in case of weak screening. The plasma screening effect is found to uncover a Cooper minimum in the photoionizing transitions from the ground state of Li in Debye plasma environment. Furthermore, the Cooper minimum, which appears close to the threshold for an isolated Na atom, shifts toward the higher energy region as the plasma screening increases.The appearance of a Cooper minimum in the photoionization cross section of Li in plasma environment is of special interest, since it profoundly affects the  shape of the cross sections , i.e., the spectral distribution of oscillator strength. Accordingly, the theoretical investigation of photoionization process from excited  helium is worthwhile. Helium is both abundant element in the universe and has been the subject of many laboratory experiments. The photoionization from excited states of helium has proved to be an important one, not only for its own sake but as a device for studying the theory and calculation of free bound transition probabilities, as a stimulus for other studies of photodetachment, and as an important contributor to the radiative properties of the sun, and other stars and of plasmas. Further studies on the other non-hydrogenic ions are in progress.
      Our calculations have shown that photoionization is very sensitive in the plasma environment near the ionization threshold. In our approach towards the calculation of photoionization cross section, the charged particle interaction potential is obtained by the static Debye-Hückle model. The static screening formula obtained by Debye-Hückle model overestimates the plasma screening effect on the photoionization cross section in dense plasma for low excitation energy. It is, indeed, necessary to recalculate the photoionization cross section in dense plasma on the basis of kinetic plasma theory, which, in particular, permits to account the collective plasma effects, namely, dynamic screening along with plasma fluctuation. However, we emphasize that plasma’s influence on collision events by means of a model potential turns out to be efficient in determining the characteristic plasma response on photoionization cross section.
