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 D. 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

CODATA Recommended Values of the Fundamental Physical Constants: 2018

June 30, 2021
Eite Tiesinga, Peter Mohr, David B. Newell, Barry Taylor
We report the 2018 self-consistent values of constants and conversion factors of physics and chemistry recommended by the Committee on Data of the Interna- tional Science Council (CODATA). The recommended values can also be found at

Role of low molecular weight polymers on the dynamics of silicon anodes during casting

May 11, 2021
Mary Burdette, Beth Armstrong, Ryan Murphy, Luke Heroux, Mathieu Doucet, Stephen Trask, Alexander Rogers, Gabriel Veith
This work probes the slurry architecture of a high silicon content electrode slurry with and without low molecular weight polymeric dispersants as a function of shear rate to mimic electrode casting conditions for poly(acrylic acid) (PAA) and lithium

Quantum field theory for the chiral clock transition in one spatial dimension

May 3, 2021
Seth P. Whitsitt, Rhine Samajdar, Subir Sachdev
We describe the quantum phase transition in the N-state chiral clock model in spatial dimension d=1. With couplings chosen to preserve time-reversal and spatial inversion symmetries, such a model, is in the universality class of recent experimental studies

Identifications of extreme ultraviolet spectra of Br-like to Ni-like neodymium ions using an electronbeam ion trap

April 30, 2021
C. Suzuki, FNU Dipti, Y. Yang, A. Gall, Roshani Silwal, S. Sanders, Aung S. Naing, Joseph N. Tan, Endre A. Takacs, Yuri Ralchenko
Charge-resolved extreme ultraviolet spectra of open N-shell neodymium (Nd) ions have been recorded in an electron beam ion trap facility at the National Institute of Standards and Technology. The measurements have been performed for nominal electron beam

Neutron Spin Rotation Measurements

April 15, 2021
Jeffrey S. Nico, Shannon M. Hoogerheide, Hans Pieter Mumm, Murad Sarsour, J Amadio, Eamon Anderson, Libertad Barron-Palos, Bret Crawford, Chris Crawford, D. Esposito, Walter Fox, I Francis, J Fry, Chris Haddock, Adam Holley, Kirill Korsak, J Lieers, S Magers, M. Maldonado-Velazquez, D Mayorov, T Okudaira, C Paudel, S Santra, H.M. Shimizu, William M. Snow, A. Sprow, K. Steen, H E. Swanson, John Vanderwerp, P. A. Yergeau
The neutron spin rotation (NSR) collaboration used parity-violating spin rotation of transversely polarized neutrons transmitted through a 0.5 m liquid helium target to constrain weak coupling constants between nucleons. While consistent with theoretical

Measurement of mass of aerosol particles

April 12, 2021
Kevin Coakley, Robert Hagwood, Kensei Ehara, Nobuhiko FUKUSHIMA, Kittichote WORACHOTEKAMJORN, Naoko TAJIMA, Hiromu SAKURAI
An aerosol particle mass analyzer (APM) which classifies aerosol particles according to their mass has been developed. Mass distributions of aerosol particles can be measured by the APM combined with a particle counting device. Particle mass that can be

Evidence Against Carbonization of the Thin-Film Filters of the Extreme Ultraviolet Variability Experiment onboard the Solar Dynamics Observatory

April 1, 2021
Charles Tarrio, Robert F. Berg, Thomas B. Lucatorto, Andrew Jones, Frank Eparvier, Brian Templeman, Donald Woodraska, Marie Dominique
In spite of strict limits on outgassing from organic materials, some spacecraft instruments making long-term measurements of solar extreme ultraviolet (EUV) radiation still suff er signi cant degradation. While such measures have reduced the rate of

Fully phase-stabilized 1 GHz turnkey frequency comb at 1.5 mm

March 15, 2021
Daniel Lesko, Alexander Lind, Nazanin Hoghooghi, Abijith S. Kowligy, Henry R. Timmers, Pooja Sekhar, Benjamin Rudin, Florian Emaury, Gregory B. Rieker, Scott Diddams
Low noise and high repetition rate optical frequency combs have been desirable for many applications from timekeeping to precision spectroscopy. With higher power per comb mode, gigahertz repetition rates enable rapid spectroscopic sensing in a dual-comb

Core-hole processes in photoemission and x-ray absorption by resonant-Auger electron spectroscopy and first-principles theory

March 10, 2021
Eric L. Shirley, Joseph Woicik, Conan Weiland, James M. Ablett, Abdul K. Rumaiz, Michael T. Brumbach, Joshua J. Kas, John J. Rehr
The electron-core-hole interaction is critical for proper interpretation of core-level spectroscopies commonly used as structural tools in materials' science. Resonant Auger- electron spectroscopy can uniquely identify exciton, shake, and charge-transfer
