41. Modulated Electromechanics: Large Enhancements of Nonlinearities
Topic: Physics
Published: 7/16/2014
Authors: Raymond Wiley Simmonds, Jie-Qiao Liao, Kurt Jacobs, Franco Nori
Abstract: It is well-known that the nonlinear coupling between a mechanical oscillator and a superconducting oscillator or optical cavity can be used to generate a Kerr-nonlinearity for the cavity mode. We show that the strength of this Kerr-nonlinearity, as w ...

42. 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 ...

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

44. Saturated and Compressed Liquid Heat Capacity at Constant Volume for 1-Hexyl-3-methylimidazolium bis[(trifluoromethyl)sulfonyl]imide)
Topic: Physics
Published: 6/13/2014
Authors: N. G. Polikhronidi, Rabiyat G Batyrova, Ilmutdin Magomedovich Abdulagatov, Joe W Magee, J. Wu
Abstract: See attached PDF. Abstract contains symbols and measurements that this database does not accept.

45. 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 D 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.

46. 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 ...

47. 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 ...

48. 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 ...

49. 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 ...

50. 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 ...
