http://ijaa.du.ac.ir/article_130_31.html
Over the past years, two-dimensional materials such as graphene, phosphorene, silicene, and boron-nitride have attracted the attention of many researchers. After the successful synthesis of graphene, due to its many new applications, researches began to produce nanosheets from other elements, and among these elements, boron was one of the options. In the periodic table of elements, boron is ahead of carbon and after beryllium, which exhibits metallic and non-metallic properties. The two-dimensional boron sheets called borophene are one of the allotropes of this element that reaches their stable and single-layer structure by forming triangular lattice and the carbon like SP2 hybridization. Since boron is carbon’s neighbour, so it is expected that two-dimensional boron sheets would have properties close to graphene. Here, we investigate the wettability of the borophene mono-layer surface by calculating contact angle of the water and the surface of the sheet by using the molecular dynamics simulation method. According to the measurements obtained from this simulation, the contact angle is approximately 131 degrees, indicating that such a structure is hydrophobic. Also, the effect of diameter of nanodroplet on the surface contact angle has been studied.Wed, 28 Feb 2018 20:30:00 +0100Slip distribution of the 2010 August 27 Mw 5.8 Kuh-Zar earthquake from finite-fault modeling
http://ijaa.du.ac.ir/article_142_0.html
The slip distribution of a moderate earthquake of Iran, the 27th of August, 2010Mw 5:8 Kuh-Zar earthquake, was estimated from regional broadband seismic datausing constrained non-negative least squares linear slip inversion method. A greatmany inversions were carried to determine the optimal parameters used in theprocess such as rupture velocity and rise time. A rupture velocity of 2.55 km/s andrise time of 1.8 s were utilized for the event. Results show a rupture with peak slipof 15.0 cm and total seismic moment release of 2 × 10^{25} dyne-cm. The effect of thestations with different epicentral distances was also analyzed using a sensitivity test.Due to the non-uniqueness of the inversion problem, a set of solutions is presentedfor the Kuh-Zar earthquake. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first time toconsider constrained non-negative least square linear finite-fault inversion procedure tothe Kuh-Zar earthquake.Sun, 15 Sep 2019 19:30:00 +0100Extracting the Temperature of a Coronal Loop in the Solar Active Region 11092
http://ijaa.du.ac.ir/article_132_31.html
Extracting the temperature of coronal loops is effective in the analysis of solar active region's loops and helps in better understanding of coronal events. To this end, various methods have already been developed like the method developed by Aschwanden et al. 2015 [10] which is based on Gaussian fit for Differential Emission Measure (DEM). Here, we use the intensity ratios of the images in three different wavelengths and the temperature response functions of AIA to extract the temperature of the loop. In this paper, we use EUV images of the solar active region 11092 taken by AIA instrument of the SDO satellite at 171, 193, and 211 A0 wavelengths, at 1th of August, 2010. We select a loop in a subregion of 11092 and extract its temperature by the help of intensity profiles in different wavelengths and thermal response functions of different filters. In this subregion cooling of the loop happens and in the selected loop, highest relative intensity of the wavelengths of 171 A0 to 193 A0 was obtained to be 0:76 and this number was estimated to correspond to the temperature of 1.3 million degree of Kelvin, which is the maximum temperature point of this loop's internal area. The highest values of the intensity ratios at the wavelengths of 211A0 to 193A0, and 211A0 to 171A0 are 0:22 and 0:25, which correspond to temperature values around 10M and 1.4M Kelvin in sequence, related to the temperature of hotter and more superficial points of the loop respectively. These values are very sensitive to time and differ in time series of this event of the loop intensity variation.Wed, 28 Feb 2018 20:30:00 +0100First day-time seeing observations at the Observatory of University of Zanjan in Iran
http://ijaa.du.ac.ir/article_143_0.html
Recognition of the appropriate locations for ground based observations of the Sunwith high angular resolution depends on the factors such as seeing, meteorological andastronomical parameters. Seeing is one of the most effective parameters that couldlimit the quality of the observations. Therefore, to have an accurate observation, oneneeds to have an accurate estimation of this parameter. Using Solar Differential ImageMotion Monitor (S-DIMM) method, the day-time seeing parameter is estimated forthe first time at Optical Observatory of University of Zanjan, Iran. Because of hardobservational conditions, the data collected at height of 8 meters above the groundbetween 3rd of July to 18th of October 2018, using an 8 Inch MEAD telescope coveredwith a two hole Hartman mask and a 99.99999 % solar glass filter. The results of FriedParameter at the Observatory of University of Zanjan show a median value of 5.3 cm,with the first, and third quartiles being equal to 8.3 to 3.6 cm, respectively. The bestseeing results are obtained between 9:00 to 9:30 a.m., Iran local time. Above the 6%of the measured Fried parameters are obtained to be larger than 10 cm, which seemsto be better than the seeing condition at TUBITAK National Observatory, Turkey.The obtained median value of the Fried parameter during the observation period ofthis study is comparable with the median Fried parameters measured at good solarobservatory sites, during July-September. Continuous Day-time seeing observations are needed to make a better comprehensive comparison.Sun, 15 Sep 2019 19:30:00 +0100First day-time seeing observations at the Observatory of University of Zanjan in Iran

http://ijaa.du.ac.ir/article_134_31.html
Recent studies show that two completely distinct fields as quantum information and string theory realization can be related and share some of the same properties. So, the knowledge on quantum information of some special quantum systems provides new insights on the sting theory. We analytically study geometric discord and measurement induced nonlocality for a Horodeckis' 33 bound entangled state to find quantum correlation. We find that there is a simultaneous sudden change point in the geometric discord and the measurement-induced nonlocality in the region of the bound entangled states, which is considerable. Moreover, we investigate the lower bound of geometric discord and the upper bound of measurement-induced nonlocality for this system. This study leads to some new and interesting novel results as well.Wed, 28 Feb 2018 20:30:00 +0100Slip distribution of the 2010 August 27 Mw 5.8 Kuh-Zar earthquake from ﬁnite-fault modeling
