21. Ancilla assisted calibration of a measuring apparatus
Topic: Physics
Published: 6/19/2012
Authors: Alan L Migdall, Giorgio Brida, L. Ciavarella, Ivo Pietro Degiovanni, Marco Genovese, M. G. Mingolla, M. G. A. Paris, Fabrizio Piacentini, S. V. Polyakov
Abstract: The rapid development of quantum systems has enabled a wide range of novel and innovative technologies, from quantum information processing to quantum etrology and imaging [1{13], mainly based on optical systems. Precise characterization techniques o ...

22. Andreev Reflections in Micrometer-Scale Normal Metal-Insulator-Superconductor Tunnel Junctions
Topic: Physics
Published: 11/24/2011
Authors: Peter J Lowell, Galen C O\'Neil, Jason M Underwood, Joel Nathan Ullom
Abstract: Understanding the subgap behavior of Normal-Insulator-Superconductor (NIS) tunnel junctions is important in order to be able to accurately model the thermal properties of the junctions. Hekking and Nazarov developed a theory in which the NIS sub gap ...

23. Atomic Physics in Ion Traps
Topic: Physics
Published: 3/1/1997
Authors: C Monroe, John J Bollinger
Abstract: Ion traps allow researchers to control the position and movement of charged particles with exquisite precision, and provide a powerful way to study many atomic phenomena.

24. Band Alignment of Metal-Oxide-Semiconductor Structure by Internal Photoemission Spectroscopy and Spectroscopic Ellipsometry
Topic: Physics
Published: 12/10/2010
Authors: Nhan V Nguyen, Oleg A Kirillov, John S Suehle
Abstract: In this paper, we will provide an overview of the internal photoemission (IPE) and the significance of this technique when combined with spectroscopic ellipsometry (SE) to investigate the interfacial electronic properties of heterostructures. In ...

Topic: Physics
Published: 6/19/2015
Authors: Bettye C Johnson, Steven W Brown, John Taylor Woodward IV, Keith R Lykke, Giuseppe Zibordi
Abstract: The global Aerosol Robotic Network for Ocean Color (AERONET-OC) program utilizes AERONET CE-318 sun photometers (termed ,SeaPRISMsŠ) modified for in-air observations of ocean waters situated on oil drilling rigs, off-shore lighthouses, or other platf ...

26. CODATA Recommended Values of the Fundamental Physical Constants: 2010
Topic: Physics
Published: 3/1/2012
Authors: Peter J Mohr, Barry Norman Taylor, David B Newell
Abstract: This paper give the 2010 self-consistent set of values of the basic constants and conversion factors of physics and chemistry recommended by the Committee on Data for Science and Technology (CODATA) for international use. The 2010 adjustment takes in ...

27. Carbon nanotube arrays for absolute IR and THz radiometry
Topic: Physics
Published: 10/2/2011
Authors: John H Lehman, Kerry N. Betz, Erich N Grossman
Abstract: We have assembled and evaluated a novel electrically calibrated thermopile having an array of 1.5 mm long multiwalled carbon nanotubes as the radiation absorber. We find very low reflectance at the 390 {mu}m laser wavelength and excellent agreeme ...

28. Challenges in SIM to Create a Coordination Program for Time and Frequency
Topic: Physics
Published: 7/26/2010
Authors: J. Mauricio Lopez-Romero, Michael A Lombardi
Abstract: The Sistema Interamericano de Metrologia (SIM), one of the world s five major regional metrology organizations (RMOs) recognized by the Bureau International des Poids et Mesures (BIPM), is comprised of national metrology institutes (NMIs) located in ...

29. Characterization and Calibration of an Optical Time Domain Reflectometer Calibrator
Topic: Physics
Published: 8/23/2006
Authors: Donald R Larson, Nicholas G Paulter Jr., Kenneth C Blaney
Abstract: We report the results of an investigation into the signal characteristics and behavior of an instrument used to calibrate Optical Time Domain Reflectometers. This instrument implements the Telecommunications Industry Association standard TIA/EIA-455- ...

30. Characterization of Soluble Anthradithiophene Derivatives
Topic: Physics
Published: 3/18/2010
Authors: Brad Conrad, Calvin Chan, Marsha A. Loth, John E Anthony, David J Gundlach
Abstract: We will discuss the growth and electrical measurements of a newly developed, partially fluorinated anthradithiophene (F-ADT) derivative with tert-butyldiphenylsilyl (TBDMS) side groups. Single crystals of the material can be readily grown and device ...
