31. Show, don't tell: When probing the state of a quantum system, it may be faster and more useful to record observations that are themselves quantum superpositions (Nature Physics "News and Views" article)
Topic: Quantum Physics
Published: 7/27/2014
Author: Yi-Kai Liu
Abstract: Measurement and computation are fundamental tools in science. However, many of our ordinary intuitions break down when we study microscopic, quantum-mechanical objects. For instance, measurements of quantum systems are limited by uncertainty prin ...

32. Strong Casimir force reduction by metallic surface nanostructuring
Topic: Quantum Physics
Published: 9/27/2013
Authors: Francesco Intravaia, Stefan T. Koev, Il Woong Jung, Albert A. Talin, Paul S Davids, Ricardo Decca, Vladimir A Aksyuk, Diego A. R. Dalvit, Daniel Lopez
Abstract: The Casimir force is a quantum-mechanical interaction arising from vacuum fluctuations of the electromagnetic (EM) field and is technologically significant in micro- and nanomechanical systems. Despite rapid progress in nanophotonics, the goal of e ...

33. Superconducting Transition Edge Sensors for Quantum Optics
Topic: Quantum Physics
Published: 6/2/2015
Authors: Thomas Gerrits, Adriana E Lita, Brice R. Calkins
Abstract: High efficiency single-photon detectors allow novel measurements in quantum information processing and quantum photonic systems. The photon-number resolving transition edge sensor (TES) is known for its near-unity detection efficiency and has been ...

34. The Peierls Substitution in an Engineered Lattice Potential
Topic: Quantum Physics
Published: 5/29/2012
Authors: Karina K. Jimenez Garcia, Lindsay J. LeBlanc, Ross A. Williams, Matthew C. Beeler, Abigail Reiko Perry, Ian B Spielman
Abstract: Artificial gauge fields open new possibilities to realize quantum many-body systems with ultracold atoms, by constructing Hamiltonians usually associated with electronic systems. In the presence of a periodic potential, artificial gauge fields may br ...

35. Topological Robustness of Transport Statistics for Photons in a Synthetic Gauge Field
Topic: Quantum Physics
Published: 8/20/2014
Authors: Sunil Mittal, Jingyun Fan, Sanli Faez, Alan L Migdall, Jacob M Taylor, Mohammad Hafezi
Abstract: Electronic transport through a disordered medium leads generically to localization, where conductance drops exponentially with system size, even at zero temperature. The addition of gauge fields to disordered media leads to fundamental changes in ...
