71. Microresonator based optical frequency combs
Topic: Physics
Published: 4/29/2011
Authors: Scott A Diddams, T. J. Klippenberg
Abstract: Optical frequency combs based on mode-locked laser sources have provided unprecedented measurement capabilities for optical frequencies, enabling new applications in a wide range of topics that include atomic clocks, ultracold gases, molecular finge ...

72. Small-sized dichroic atomic vapor laser lock
Topic: Physics
Published: 4/21/2011
Authors: Svenja A Knappe, Changmin Lee, Geoffrey Z. Iwata, Eric Corsini, James M. Higbie, Micah P. Ledbetter, Dimitry Budkerl
Abstract: Two, lightweight diode laser frequency stabilization systems designed for experiments in the field are described. Similar to a previous design, magnetic-field lines are contained within a magnetic shield enclosing permanent magnets an ...

73. Microfabricated Chip Traps for Ions
Topic: Physics
Published: 4/12/2011
Authors: Jason Amini, Joseph Wright Britton, Dietrich G Leibfried, David J Wineland
Abstract: This publication is a review of microfabricated ion traps for a book. We cover the basics of Paul traps, various geometries for realizing the traps, a number of design considerations, and, finally, a review of existing microfabricated traps.

74. Measurement of equilibrium elemental vapor pressures using x-ray induced fluorescence
Topic: Physics
Published: 3/22/2011
Authors: John J Curry, Albert Henins, E. G Estupinan, W. P. Lapatovich, S. D. Shastri
Abstract: X-ray induced fluorescence is demonstrated as a fast and accurate method for measuring elemental vapor pressures over a wide range of pressures. As such, it may offer a preferable alternative to existing methods such as those based on effusion. ...

75. Coupled quantized mechanical oscillators
Topic: Physics
Published: 3/10/2011
Authors: Kenton R. Brown, Christian Ospelkaus, Yves Colombe, Andrew C Wilson, Dietrich G Leibfried, David J Wineland
Abstract: The harmonic oscillator is one of the simplest physical systems but also one of the most fundamental. It is ubiquitous in nature, often serving as an approximation for a more complicated system or as a building block for larger models. Realizations o ...

76. Effect of interactions on edge property measurements in magnetic multilayers
Topic: Physics
Published: 2/25/2011
Authors: Meng Zhu, Robert D McMichael
Abstract: This paper reports effects of inter-film interactions on static and dynamic magnetization behavior at film edges in magnetic trilayer stripe arrays under transverse applied fields. The trilayers consist of two magnetic films of Ni80Fe20, 10 nm and 2 ...

77. Fe xvii X-ray Line Ratios for Accurate Astrophysical Plasma Diagnostics
Topic: Physics
Published: 2/20/2011
Authors: John D Gillaspy, E. H. Silver, L. Tedesco, Joseph N Tan, Joshua M Pomeroy, J M Laming, G.-X. Chen, T. Lin
Abstract: New laboratory measurements of the Ne-like Fe xvii x-ray lines in the 15-17 Angstrom range are presented, along with new theoretical predictions. These results establish consistency between independent laboratories and opens the door to trustworthy ...

78. Spherical Reference Cavities for Ultra-Stable Lasers in Non-Laboratory Environments
Topic: Physics
Published: 2/14/2011
Authors: David R Leibrandt, Michael J. (Michael) Thorpe, Mark Notcutt, Robert E. Drullinger, Till P Rosenband, James C Bergquist
Abstract: We present an ultra-stable optical cavity design that is insensitive to both vibrations and orientation. The design is based on a spherical cavity spacer which is held rigidly at two points on a diameter of the sphere. Coupling of the support force ...

79. The Infrared Spectra of C2H4+ and C2H3 Trapped in Solid Neon
Topic: Physics
Published: 2/14/2011
Authors: Marilyn E Jacox, Warren Elwin Thompson
Abstract: When a mixture of ethylene in a large excess of neon is codeposited at 4.3 K with a beam of neon atoms that have been excited in a microwave discharge, two groups of product absorptions appear in the infrared spectrum of the deposit. Similar studies ...

80. Use of Phosphor Image Plates for Measuring Intensities in Vacuum Ultraviolet Spectra
Topic: Physics
Published: 1/28/2011
Authors: Gillian Nave, Craig J Sansonetti, Csilla Szabo, John J Curry, Darren Smillie
Abstract: We describe the use of phosphor image plates for recording spectra in the vacuum ultraviolet (VUV) and for determining accurate relative and absolute intensities. We investigated the spatial uniformity, noise level, linearity of the response to VUV ...
