41. 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 ...

42. 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 ...

43. 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 ...

44. 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 ...

45. Report of Special Nuclear Material Validation Measurements for Backpack Type Radiation Detectors
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1808
Topic: Physics
Published: 8/19/2013
Authors: Leticia S Pibida, Christina Ward
Abstract: This report provides results and recommendations from the validation testing for the different source configurations and radiation fields produced by special nuclear materials (SNMs) and depleted uranium (DU) listed within the Technical Capabilit ...

46. Mode reconstruction of a light field by multi-photon statistics
Topic: Physics
Published: 7/15/2013
Authors: Elizabeth A Goldschmidt, Fabrizio Piacentini, I. Ruo Berchera, Sergey V Polyakov, Silke Peters, Stefan Kuck, Giorgio Brida, Ivo Pietro Degiovanni, Alan L Migdall, Marco Genovese
Abstract: Knowing the underlying number and structure of occupied modes of a light field plays a crucial role in minimizing loss and decoherence of quantum information. Typically, full characterization of the mode structure involves a series of several separ ...

47. Spectral responsivity based calibration of photometer and colorimeter standards
Topic: Physics
Published: 6/19/2013
Author: George P Eppeldauer
Abstract: Several new generation transfer- and working-standard illuminance meters and tristimulus colorimeters have been developed at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) to measure all kinds of light sources with low uncertainty. The spe ...

48. Implementation of generalized quantum measurements for unambiguous discrimination of multiple nonorthogonal coherent states
Topic: Physics
Published: 6/18/2013
Authors: Francisco E. Becerra Chavez, Jingyun Fan, Alan L Migdall
Abstract: Generalized quantum measurements can perform perfect discrimination of nonorthogonal states by allowing for inconclusive results, task which is impossible performing only measurements with definite outcomes. We demonstrate the realization of genera ...

49. Classical over-the-barrier model for neutralization of highly charged ions above thin dielectric films
Topic: Physics
Published: 6/3/2013
Authors: Joshua M Pomeroy, Russell Lake, C E Sosolik
Abstract: We apply the classical over-the-barrier model (COB) to charge transfer between highly charged ions (HCIs)and targets consisting of thin dielectric films on metals. Distances for the onset of classically allowed above surface electron capture are ...

50. Lattice damage in superconducting microcalorimeter detectors
Topic: Physics
Published: 6/3/2013
Authors: Robert Daniel Horansky, Joel Nathan Ullom, Michael W Rabin
Abstract: There is currently significant interest in using superconducting detectors for measurement of ion kinetic energies. Unprecedented resolution is possible with an order of magnitude improvement over semiconductors. Superconducting detectors are now ...
