21. Photon-number uncertainty in a superconducting transition-edge sensor beyond resolved-photon-number determination
Topic: Physics
Published: 9/10/2014
Authors: Zachary H Levine, Boris L. Glebov, Alan L Migdall, Thomas Gerrits, Brice R. Calkins, Adriana Eleni Lita, Sae Woo Nam
Abstract: As part of an effort to extend fundamental single-photon measurements into the macroscopic regime, we explore how best to assign photon-number uncertainties to output waveforms of a superconducting Transition Edge Sensor (TES) and how those assignmen ...

22. Engineering three-body interaction and Pfaffian states in circuit QED systems
Topic: Physics
Published: 8/18/2014
Authors: Mohammad Hafezi, Prabin Adhikari, Jacob M Taylor
Abstract: We demonstrate a scheme to engineer the three-body interaction in circuit-QED systems by tuning a fluxonium qubit. Connecting such qubits in a square lattice and controlling the tunneling dynamics, in the form of a synthesized magnetic field, for th ...

23. The Half-Life of 209Po : Revisited
Topic: Physics
Published: 8/13/2014
Authors: Ronald Colle, Ryan P Fitzgerald, Lizbeth Laureano-Perez
Abstract: A substantial 25 % error in the then known and accepted (102  5) year half-life of 209Po was reported on in 2007. This error was detected from decay data from two separate primary standardizations of a 209Po solution standard, which were perf ...

24. Enriching 28Si beyond 99.9998 % for semiconductor quantum computing
Topic: Physics
Published: 8/5/2014
Authors: Kevin Joseph Dwyer, Joshua M Pomeroy, David S Simons, June Waiyin Lau, Kristen L. Steffens
Abstract: Using a laboratory-scale apparatus, we enrich 28Si to 40 times better than previously reported starting from natural abundance silane gas and offer another source for providing these critical materials from the industrial gas centrifuge methods. ...

25. Optical Passive Sensor Calibration for Satellite Remote Sensing and the Legacy of NOAA and NIST Cooperation
Series: Journal of Research (NIST JRES)
Report Number: 119.008
Topic: Physics
Published: 6/26/2014
Authors: Raju VSNU Datla , Michael Weinreb, Joseph Paul Rice, Bettye C Johnson, Eric L Shirley, Changyong Cao
Abstract: This paper traces the cooperative effort of the scientists at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) for improving the calibration of operational satellite sensors ...

26. Visible-frequency asymmetric transmission devices incorporating a hyperbolic metamaterial
Topic: Physics
Published: 6/17/2014
Authors: Ting Xu, Henri J Lezec

27. Photon-Efficient High-Dimensional Quantum Key Distribution
Topic: Physics
Published: 6/12/2014
Authors: Tian Zhong, Hongchao Zhou, Ligong Wang, Gregory Wornell, Zheshen Zhang, Jeffrey Shapiro, Franco N.C. Wong, Robert Daniel Horansky, Varun Boehm Verma, Adriana Eleni Lita, Richard P Mirin, Thomas Gerrits, Sae Woo Nam, Allessandro Restelli, Joshua C Bienfang, Francesco Marsili, Matthew Shaw
Abstract: We demonstrate two high-dimensional QKD protocols - secure against collective Gaussian attacks - yielding up to 8.6 secure bits per photon and 6.7 Mb/s throughput, with 6.9 bits per photon after transmission through 20 km of fiber.

28. Large-area irradiance-mode spectral response measurements of solar cells by a light-emitting-diode- based integrating sphere source
Topic: Physics
Published: 5/30/2014
Authors: Behrang H Hamadani, John F Roller, Andrew M. Shore, Brian P Dougherty, Howard W Yoon
Abstract: An irradiance-mode absolute differential spectral response measurement system based on a light emitting diode (LED) array is described. The LEDs are coupled to an integrating sphere whose output irradiance is uniform to better than 2 % over an ar ...

29. NIST traceable measurements of radiance and luminance levels of night-vision-goggle test-instruments
Topic: Physics
Published: 5/7/2014
Authors: George P Eppeldauer, Vyacheslav B Podobedov
Abstract: In order to perform radiance and luminance level measurements of night-vision-goggle (NVG) test instruments, NIST developed new-generation transfer-standard radiometers (TR). The new TRs can perform low-level radiance and luminance measurements with ...

30. 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 ...
