11. Geometrical Problems for Measuring the Daytime Luminance of Retroreflective Materials
Topic: Physics
Published: 5/14/2015
Authors: Maria E Nadal, Matthew Thiesse, Carl C Miller

12. New section of the HITRAN database: Collision-Induced Absorption (CIA)
Topic: Physics
Published: 5/14/2015
Author: Walter Joseph Lafferty
Abstract: This paper describes the addition of Collision-Induced Absorption (CIA) into the HITRAN compilation. The data from different sources have been cast into a consistent format and formalism. The implementation of these new spectral data into the H ...

13. Revealing Integrated Intensity Distributions (RIID)
Topic: Physics
Published: 5/14/2015
Author: John F. Lesoine
Abstract: Measuring the distribution of a light sources intensity fluctuations is important to many scientific disciplines. However, these integrated intensity distributions are hidden in noisy experimental photon counting data because of the photometric d ...

14. Confronting the Complexity of Commercial Carbon Nanotube Materials
Topic: Physics
Published: 5/13/2015
Authors: Luis Fernando Vargas Lara, Jack F Douglas
Abstract: The morphology of commercially available carbon nanotube materials is often much more complex than the term ,carbon nanotubeŠ (CNT) would imply. Commercial CNT materials are typically composed of roughly spherical CNT domains having a highly rami ...

15. Spin Hall Effect and Irreversible Thermodynamics; Center-to-Edge Transverse Current-Induced Voltage
Topic: Physics
Published: 1/5/2015
Author: Wayne Mark Saslow
Abstract: We examine the Dyakonov and Perel theory of the Spin Hall Effect from the viewpoint of irreversible thermodynamics. As thermodynamic driving forces we include the effect of the thermal gradient, the gradient of the electrochemical potential (rather ...

16. Experimental Bounds on Classical Random Field Theories
Topic: Physics
Published: 12/10/2014
Authors: Joffrey Kent Peters, Sergey V Polyakov, Jingyun Fan, Alan L Migdall
Abstract: Alternative theories to quantum mechanics motivate important fundamental tests of our understanding and description of the smallest physical systems. Here we place experimental limits on those classical field theories which result in power-depend ...

17. IR-enhanced Si reference detectors for 1-step scale transfers from 300 nm to 1000 nm
Topic: Physics
Published: 11/20/2014
Authors: George P Eppeldauer, Thomas C Larason, Jeanne M Houston, Robert Edward Vest, Uwe Arp, Howard W Yoon
Abstract: IR-enhanced Si photodiodes have improved radiometric and electronic characteristics as compared to other widely used Si photodiodes and can be used as responsivity standards in the wavelength range from 300 nm to 1000 nm. Their low predicted uncerta ...

18. Ultra-Broadband Frequency Comb Generation in Superconducting Resonators
Topic: Physics
Published: 10/30/2014
Authors: David P Pappas, Michael R Vissers, Martin Olof Sandberg, Jiansong Gao, Steven R Jefferts, Robert P Erickson
Abstract: Multi-octave frequency combs are generated in superconducting microresonators due to their low loss, strong Kerrlike kinetic inductance nonlinearity, and low frequency dispersion. This effect is illustrated at low frequency (60 MHz to 20 GHz) in long ...

19. Cryogenic Design and Performance of an Apparatus for Magnetically Trapping Ultracold Neutrons
Topic: Physics
Published: 10/5/2014
Author: Hans P Mumm
Abstract: The cryogenic design and performance of an apparatus used to magnetically confine ultracold neutrons (UCN) is presented. The apparatus is part of an effort to measure the beta-decay lifetime of the free neutron and is comprised of a high-current su ...

20. Weak Localization, Spin Relaxation, and Spin-Diffusion: Crossover Between Weak and Strong Rashba Coupling Limits
Topic: Physics
Published: 9/17/2014
Authors: Yasufumi Araki, Guru Bahadur S Khalsa, Allan H. MacDonald
Abstract: Disorder scattering and spin-orbit coupling are together responsible for the diffusion and relaxation of spin-density in time-reversal invariant systems. We study spin-relaxation and diffusion in a two-dimensional electron gas with Rashba spin-orbit ...
