We consider systems described by a two-dimensional Dirac equation where the Fermi velocity is inhomogeneous as a consequence of mechanical deformations. We show that the mechanical deformations can lead to deflection and focusing of the wave packets. The analogy with known reflectionless quantum systems is pointed out. Furthermore, with the use of the qualitative spectral analysis, we discuss how inhomogeneous strains can be used to create waveguides for valley polarized transport of partially dispersionless wave packets.

Relativistic massless charged particles in a two-dimensional conductor can be guided by a one-dimensional electrostatic potential, in an analogous manner to light guided by an optical fiber. We use a ...
We present a continuum operator map that inverts the role of particles and antiparticles in three-dimensional QED. This is accomplished by the attachment of specific holomorphic Wilson lines to Dirac ...
Topological band dispersions other than the standard Dirac or Weyl fermions have garnered the increasing interest in materials science. Among them, the cubic Dirac fermions were recently proposed in t...
Mechanical deformations of graphene induce a term in the Dirac Hamiltonian that is reminiscent of an electromagnetic vector potential. Strain gradients along particular lattice directions induce local...
Numerous theoretically proposed devices and novel phenomena have sought to take advantage of the intense pseudo-gauge fields that can arise in strained graphene. Many of these proposals, however, requ...
Inhomogeneous ventilation was more likely to happen in patients after general anesthesia. Inhomogeneous ventilation may associate with ventilator-induced lung injury. A large number of pos...
The development of in vivo biomarkers sensitive to myelin disruption represents a major clinical need to be able to monitor the demyelination processes as well as the effect of remyelinati...
The investigators performed a 8-week, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled human trial to evaluate the efficacy and safety of Gynostemma Pentaphyllum(Dungkulcha) on alleviation of ...
The objectives of this study are: - To describe the safety of each dosage of high-dose quadrivalent influenza vaccine (QIV-HD) used in the study during the 28 days following each ...
Ultrasound (US) image construction uses equations that contain the value of the propagation velocity of sound waves; this velocity is assumed conventionally to be constant and equal to 154...
An inbred strain of mouse that is used as a general purpose research strain, for therapeutic drug testing, and for the genetic analysis of CARCINOGEN-induced COLON CANCER.
Rhythmic, intermittent propagation of a fluid through a BLOOD VESSEL or piping system, in contrast to constant, smooth propagation, which produces laminar flow.
A strain of Murine leukemia virus (LEUKEMIA VIRUS, MURINE) arising during the propagation of S37 mouse sarcoma, and causing lymphoid leukemia in mice. It also infects rats and newborn hamsters. It is apparently transmitted to embryos in utero and to newborns through mother's milk.
Abnormally high temperature intentionally induced in living things regionally or whole body. It is most often induced by radiation (heat waves, infra-red), ultrasound, or drugs.
