A Century of WWV: 100th Anniversary Commemoration

Author(s)
Glenn K. Nelson
WWV was established as a radio station on October 1, 1919 with the issuance of the call letters by the U.S. Department of Commerce. This paper will observe the

Resonant X-ray Emission and Valence-band Lifetime Broadening in LiNO3

Author(s)
John Thomas Vinson, Terrence J. Jach, Matthias Mueller, Rainer Unterumsberger, Burkhard Beckhoff
X-ray absorption and resonant inelastic x-ray scattering measurements are carried out on lithium nitrate LiNO3. Echoing previous studies on ammonium nitrate,

Anomalous spin–orbit torques in magnetic single-layer films

Author(s)
Wenrui Wang, Tao Wang, Vivek P. Amin, Yang Wang, Anil Radhakrishna, Angie Davidson, Shane Allen, Thomas J. Silva, Hendrik Ohldag, Davor Balzar, Barry L. Zink, Paul M. Haney, John Xiao, D.G. Cahill, Virginia O. Lorenz, Xin Fan
Spin-orbit interaction (SOI) couples charge and spin transport, enabling electrical control of magnetization, the foundation of next-generation spintronic

Developing Next-generation Brain Sensing Technologies - A Review

Author(s)
Jacob T. Robinson, Eric Pohlmeyer, Malte C. Gather, Caleb Kemere, John E. Kitching, George G. Malliaras, Adam Marblestone, Kenneth L. Shepard, Thomas Stieglitz, Chong Xie
Advances in sensing technology raise the possibility of creating neural interfaces that can more effectively restore or repair neural function and reveal

Quantum-enhanced sensing of a mechanical oscillator

Author(s)
Katherine C. McCormick, Jonas Keller, Shaun C. Burd, David J. Wineland, Andrew C. Wilson, Dietrich G. Leibfried
The use of special quantum states in interferometry with bosons to achieve sensitivities below the limits established by classical-like coherent dates back

A Cold-Atom Beam Clock, based on Coherent Population Trapping

Author(s)
John D. Elgin, Thomas P. Heavner, John E. Kitching, Elizabeth A. Donley, Jayson Denney, Evan Salim
We present results from a novel atomic clock which employs a beam of cold 87 Rb atoms and spatially separated (Ramsey) coherent population trapping

Experimental Upper Bound and Theoretical Expectations for Parity-Violating Neutron Spin Rotation in He-4

Author(s)
Jeffrey S. Nico, Hans P. Mumm, H E. Swanson, C. D. Bass, T. D. Bass, J M. Dawkins, J C. Horton, D Luo, William M. Snow, S. C. Walbridge, B. E. Crawford, K. F. Gan, A M. Micherdzinska, C. R. Huffer, D M. Markoff, Murad Sarsour, E I. Sharapov, V Zhumabekova, Blayne R. Heckel
Neutron spin rotation is expected from quark-quark weak interactions in the Standard Model, which induce weak interactions among nucleons that violate parity.

NIST Time and Frequency Bulletin

Author(s)
Kathryn R. Stephenson
The Time and Frequency Bulletin provides information on performance of time scales and a variety of broadcasts (and related information) to users of the NIST

Intrinsic spin currents in ferromagnets

Author(s)
Vivek P. Amin, Junwen Li, Mark D. Stiles, Paul M. Haney
First principles calculations show that electric fields applied to ferromagnets generate spin currents flowing perpendicularly to the electric field. Reduced

Quantum amplification of motion of a mechanical oscillator

Author(s)
Shaun C. Burd, Raghavendra Srinivas, John J. Bollinger, Andrew C. Wilson, David J. Wineland, Dietrich G. Leibfried, Daniel H. Slichter, David T. Allcock
Detection of the weakest forces in nature and the search for new physics demand increasingly sensitive measurements of the motion of mechanical oscillators.

Magneto-optic trap using a reversible, solid-state alkali-metal source

Author(s)
Songbai Kang, Kaitlin R. Moore, James P. McGilligan, R. Mott, A. Mis, C. Roper, Elizabeth A. Donley, John E. Kitching
Fast, reversible, and low-power alkali-atom sources are desirable in both tabletop and portable cold-atom sensors. Here we demonstrate a magneto-optic trap (MOT

Quantum gate teleportation between separated zones of a trapped-ion processor
