Picosecond Pulse Amplification With an External Passive Optical Cavity

October 12, 2021
E Potma, Christopher J. Evans, X. Xie, R. J. Jones, Jun Ye
We experimentally demonstrate the amplification of picosecond pulses at high repetition rates through coherent addition of successive pulses of a mode-locked pulse train in a high finesse optical cavity equipped with cavity dumping. Amplification greater


September 30, 2021
Jacob Edmond Ricker, Jay H. Hendricks, Kevin O. Douglass, Sarah White, Sergei Syssoev
Optical gas refractometry has enabled new pressure standards to be developed based on a dual Fixed Length Optical Cavity (FLOC) system. NIST in partnership with MKS Instruments has created a portable FLOC pressure standard based gas refractivity. A key

High-Precision Hy-CI and E-Hy-CI studies of Atomic and Molecular Properties

September 29, 2021
James S. Sims, Maria Ruiz, Bholanath Padhy
This review presents a survey of the most important achievements in atomic and molecular calculations obtained with the Hylleraas-configuration interaction method (Hy-CI) and its extension the exponentially correlated Hylleraas-configuration interaction

Continuous radio-frequency electric-field detection through adjacent Rydberg resonance tuning

September 24, 2021
Matt Simons, Aly Artusio-Glimpse, Christopher L. Holloway, Eric Imhof, Steven Jefferts, Robert Wyllie, Brian Sawyer, Thad Walker
We demonstrate the use of multiple atomic-level Rydberg-atom schemes for continuous frequency detection of radio-frequency (RF) fields. Resonant detection of RF fields by electromagnetically induced transparency and Autler-Townes (AT) splitting in Rydberg

Alternatives to aluminum gates for silicon quantum devices: Defects and strain

September 15, 2021
Ryan Stein, Zachary Barcikowski, Sujitra Pookpanratana, Joshua M. Pomeroy, Michael Stewart
Gate-defined quantum dots (QD) benefit from the use of small grain size metals for gates materials because it aids in shrinking the device dimensions. However, it is not clear what differences arise with respect to process-induced defect densities and

Single-photon detection in the mid-infrared up to 10 micron wavelength using tungsten silicide superconducting nanowire detectors

September 14, 2021
Varun Verma, Adriana Lita, Yao Zhai, Heli C. Vora, Richard Mirin, Sae Woo Nam, Boris Korzh, Alex Walter, Ryan Briggs, Marco Colangelo, Emma Wollman, Andrew Beyer, Jason Allmaras, D. Zhu, Ekkehart Schmidt, A. G. Kozorezov, Matthew Shaw
We developed superconducting nanowire single-photon detectors (SNSPDs) based on tungsten silicide (WSi) that show saturated internal detection efficiency up to a wavelength of 10 um. These detectors are promising for applications in the mid-infrared

Pendellosung Interferometry Probes the Neutron Charge Radius, Lattice Dynamics, and Fifth Forces

September 10, 2021
Benjamin J. Heacock, Robert W. Haun, Michael G. Huber, Albert Henins, Robert C. Valdillez, Takuhiro Fujiie, Katsuya Hirota, Masaaki Kitaguchi, Hirohiko Shimizu, Takuya Hosobata, Masahiro Takeda, Yutaka Yamagata
Structure factors describe how incident radiation is scattered from materials such as silicon and germanium and characterize the physical interaction between the material and scattered particles. We used neutron Pendellösung interferometry to make

High-fidelity laser-free universal control of trapped ion qubits

September 8, 2021
Raghavendra Srinivas, Emanuel Knill, Robert Sutherland, Alexander T. Kwiatkowski, Hannah M. Knaack, Scott Glancy, David J. Wineland, Shaun C. Burd, Dietrich Leibfried, Andrew C. Wilson, David T. Allcock, Daniel Slichter
Universal control of multiple qubits—the ability to entangle qubits and to perform arbitrary individual qubit operations—is a fundamental resource for quantum computing, simulation and networking. Qubits realized in trapped atomic ions have shown the

Resource-efficient dissipative entanglement of two trapped-ion qubits

August 6, 2021
Daniel Cole, Stephen Erickson, Giorgio Zarantonello, Panyu Hou, Jenny Wu, Karl Horn, Daniel Slichter, Florentin Reiter, Christiane Koch, Dietrich Leibfried
We demonstrate a simplified method for generating an entangled state of two trapped-ion qubits. Our implementation produces its target state faster and with higher fidelity than previous demonstrations of dissipative entanglement generation, while

Programmable System on Chip for controlling an atomic physics experiment

July 23, 2021
Ananya Sitaram, Gretchen K. Campbell, Alessandro Restelli
Most atomic physics experiments are controlled by a digital pattern generator used to synchronize all equipment by providing triggers and clocks. Recently, the availability of well-documented open-source development tools has lifted the barriers to using

The role of orientation in the MEL response of OLEDs

July 13, 2021
Sebastian Engmann, Emily Bittle, Lee J. Richter, Rawad Hallani, John Anthony, David J. Gundlach
Magneto electroluminescence (MEL) is emerging as a powerful tool for the study of spin dynamics in emitting devices. The shape of the MEL response is typically used to draw qualitative inference on the dominant process (singlet fission or triplet fusion)

Broadband stability of the Habitable Zone Planet Finder Fabry-Perot etalon calibration system:evidence for chromatic variation

July 8, 2021
Ryan C. Terrien, Joe P. Ninan, Scott Diddams, Suvrath Mahadevan, Samuel Halverson, Chad Bender, Connor Fredrick, Fred Hearty, Jeffrey M. Jennings, Andrew J. Metcalf, Andrew J. Monson, Arpita Roy, Christian Schwab, Gudmundur Stefansson
The comb-like spectrum of a white light-illuminated Fabry-Pérot etalon can serve as a cost-effective and stable reference source for precise Doppler measurements. Understanding the stability of these devices across their broad (100's of nm) spectral
