11. Time-resolved double-slit interference pattern measurement with entangled photons
Topic: Physics
Published: 4/28/2014
Authors: Lynden Krister Shalm, Thomas Jennewein, Kevin Resch, Piotr Kolenderski, Carmelo Scarcella, Kelsey D. Johnsen Johnsen, Deny Hamel, Cahterine Holloway, Simone Tisa, Alberto Tosi
Abstract: The double-slit experiment strikingly demonstrates the wave-particle duality of quantum objects. In this famous experiment, particles pass one-by-one through a pair of slits and are detected on a distant screen. A distinct wave-like pattern emerg ...

12. Preparation of nanocomposite plasmonic films made from cellulose nanocrystals or mesoporous silica decorated with unidirectionally aligned gold nanorods
Topic: Physics
Published: 4/11/2014
Authors: Michael Campbell, Qingkun Liu, Aric Warner Sanders, Julian Evans, Ivan I. Smalyukh
Abstract: Using liquid crystalline self-assembly of cellulose nanocrystals, we achieve long-range alignment of anisotropic metal nanoparticles in colloidal nanocrystal dispersions that are then used to deposit thin structured films with ordering features h ...

13. Dual-polarization-sensitive kinetic inductance detectors for balloon-borne, sub-millimeter polarimetry
Topic: Physics
Published: 3/20/2014
Authors: James A Beall, Daniel Thomas Becker, Justus A Brevik, Hsiao-Mei Cho, Gene C Hilton, Kent D Irwin, Dale Li, David P Pappas, Jeffrey Lee Van Lanen, Johannes Hubmayr
Abstract: We are developing arrays of kinetic inductance detectors for sub-millimeter polarimetry that will be deployed on the BLAST balloon-borne instrument. The array is feedhorn-coupled, and each pixel contains two lumped-element kinetic inductance dete ...

14. Head and Media Challenges for 3 Tb/in^u2^ Microwave Assisted Magnetic Recording
Topic: Physics
Published: 2/3/2014
Authors: Thomas J Silva, Justin M Shaw, Hans Toya Nembach, Mike Mallary, Kumar Srinivasan, Gerado Bertero, Dan Wolf, Christian Kaiser, Michael Chaplin, Mahendra Pakala, Leng Qunwen, Yiming Wang, Carl Elliot, Lui Francis
Abstract: A specific design for Microwave Assisted Magnetic Recording (MAMR) at about 3Tb/in^u2^ (0.47 Tb/cm^u2^ or 4.7 Pb/m^u2^) is discussed in detail to highlight the challenges of MAMR and to contrast its requirements with conventional Perpendicular Magnet ...

15. Time Measurement
Topic: Physics
Published: 2/3/2014
Author: Michael A Lombardi
Abstract: An overview of time metrology, with emphasis on time interval measurements, and time synchronization. It covers the evolution of clocks and timekeeping, time scales, the fundamentals of time measurement, and the various time transfer technique used ...

16. Standardization of 237Np
Topic: Physics
Published: 12/4/2013
Authors: Lizbeth Laureano-Perez, Ryan P Fitzgerald, Ronald Colle
Abstract: The standardization of 237Np was investigated. The certified massic activity for 237Np was obtained by 4 liquid scintillation (LS) counting with correction for the 233Pa daughter using the CIEMAT/NIST efficiency tracing method ...

17. EUV-Driven Carbonaceous Film Deposition and Its Photo-oxidation on a TiO2 Film Surface
Topic: Physics
Published: 9/23/2013
Authors: Nadir S. Faradzhev, Monica McEntee, John Yate, Shannon Bradley Hill, Thomas B Lucatorto
Abstract: We report the photo-deposition of a carbonaceous layer grown on a TiO2 thin film by EUV radiation-induced chemistry of adsorbed n-tetradecane and the subsequent photo-oxidation of this film. It is found by chemical analysis of the C layer that irradi ...

18. Development of in-situ calibration method for current-to-voltage converters for high-accuracy SI-traceable low-DC-current measurements
Topic: Physics
Published: 9/20/2013
Authors: George P Eppeldauer, Howard W Yoon, Dean G Jarrett, Thomas C Larason
Abstract: For photocurrent measurements with low uncertainties, wide-dynamic range reference current-to-voltage converters and a new converter calibration method have been developed at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). The high feedba ...

19. Reply to "Comment on: 'Ultrafast Demagnetization Measurements Using Extreme Ultraviolet Light: Comparison of Electronic and Magnetic Contributions'Š
Topic: Physics
Published: 9/4/2013
Authors: Justin M Shaw, Thomas J Silva, Hans Toya Nembach, Emrah Turgut, Patrik Grychtol, Chan La-O-Vorakiat, Henry Kapteyn, Margaret M. Murnane, Stefan Mathias, Martin Aeschlimann, Claus Schneider, Daniel E. Adams
Abstract: In the following, we show that the conclusions of our article titled "Ultrafast Demagnetization Measurements Using Extreme Ultraviolet Light: Comparison of Electronic and Magnetic Contributions" are correct. The Comment of Vodungbo {I}et al.{/I} arg ...

20. Detection of l-C3H+ in Sgr B2(N) and Sgr B2(OH) and Refinement of its Spectroscopic Constants via the Publicly Available PRIMOS Survey and the Barry E. Turner Legacy Survey
Topic: Physics
Published: 9/1/2013
Authors: Francis John Lovas, Brett A. McGuire, P. Brandon Carroll, Ryan A. Loomis, Geoffery A. Blake, Jan M. Hollis, Phillip R. Jewell, Anthony J. Remijan
Abstract: Pety et al. (2012) recently reported the detection and assignment of l-C3H+ in the Horsehead nebula. Here, we expand that analysis to include the J = 1 - 0 and J = 2 - 1 transitions of l-C3H+ observed in absorption towards Sgr B2(N) in data from the ...
