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"
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
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
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
Thomas Gerrits, Adriana E Lita, Brice R. Calkins
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
Karina K. Jimenez Garcia, Lindsay J. LeBlanc, Ross A. Williams, Matthew C. Beeler, Abigail Reiko Perry, Ian B Spielman
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
Sunil Mittal, Jingyun Fan, Sanli Faez, Alan L Migdall, Jacob M Taylor, Mohammad Hafezi
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 ...
