High Energy X-Ray Diffraction and Small-Angle Scattering Measurements of Hydrogen Fatigue Damage in AISI 4130 Steel

June 4, 2022
Matthew Connolly, May Martin, Peter Bradley, Damian Lauria, Andrew Slifka, Jun-Sang Park, Robert Amaro, Jonathan Almer
Accurate lifetime predictions are critical for repurposing existing pipelines for hydrogen transmission as well as for developing novel steels which are minimally susceptible to lifetime degradation by hydrogen. Ultimately, lifetime prediction models

Entanglement Thresholds of Doubly Parametric Quantum Transducers

April 29, 2022
Curtis Rau, Akira Kyle, Alexander T. Kwiatkowski, Ezad Shojaee, John Teufel, Konrad Lehnert, Tasshi Dennis
Doubly parametric quantum transducers, such as electro-optomechanical devices, show promise for providing the critical link between quantum information encoded in highly disparate frequencies such as in the optical and microwave domains. This technology

Quantum computing hardware for HEP algorithms and sensing

April 19, 2022
Corey Rae McRae
Quantum information science harnesses the principles of quantum mechanics to realize computational algorithms with complexities vastly intractable by current computer platforms. Typical applications range from quantum chemistry to optimization problems and

Inverse-designed multi-dimensional silicon photonic transmitters

April 13, 2022
Travis Briles, Jordan Stone, Scott Papp
Modern microelectronic processors have migrated towards parallel computing architectures with many-core processors. However, such expansion comes with diminishing returns exacted by the high cost of data movement between individual processors. The use of

Late Stage Domain Coarsening Dynamics of Lamellar Block Copolymers

April 13, 2022
Jack F. Douglas, Maninderjeet Singh, Wenjie Wu, Vinay Nuka, Joseph Strzalka, Alamgir Karim
Block copolymer (BCP) phase separation is an intriguing phenomenon whose dynamics can be expected to differ significantly from that of the polymer blends due to constraint of chain connectivity that limits the ultimate scale of phase separation and the

Measurement of mass of aerosol particles

April 13, 2022
Kevin J. 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

A pyroelectric detector-based method for low uncertainty spectral irradiance and radiance responsivity calibrations in the infrared using tunable lasers

April 4, 2022
Brian Alberding, John T. Woodward IV, Ping-Shine Shaw, Leonard Hanssen, Catherine Cooksey, Joseph P. Rice
The standard uncertainty of detector-based radiance and irradiance responsivity calibrations in the short-wave infrared (SWIR) traditionally has been limited to around 1 % or higher by the low spatial uniformity of detectors used to transfer the scale from

Disinfection of Respirators with Ultraviolet Radiation

March 25, 2022
Dianne L. Poster, Matthew Hardwick, C Cameron Miller, Michael A. Riley, W. W. Shanaka I. Rodrigo, Andras E. Vladar, John D. Wright, Christopher D. Zangmeister, Clarence Zarobila, Jeremy Starkweather, John Wynne, Jason Yilzarde
Data for interpreting virus inactivation on N95 face filtering respirators (FFRs) by ultraviolet (UV) radiation are important in developing UV strategies for N95 FFR disinfection and reuse for any situation, whether it be everyday practices, contingency

Models for an Ultraviolet-C Research and Development Consortium

March 25, 2022
Dianne L. Poster, C Cameron Miller, Yaw S. Obeng, John J. Kasianowicz, Michael T. Postek, Norman Horn, Troy Cowan, Richard Martinello
The development of an international, precompetitive, collaborative, ultraviolet (UV) research consortium is discussed as an opportunity to lay the groundwork for a new UV commercial industry and the supply chain to support this industry. History has

Influence of Dimensionality on the Charge Density Wave Phase of 2H-TaSe2

March 23, 2022
Sugata Chowdhury, Albert Rigosi, Heather Hill, David B. Newell, Angela R. Hight Walker, Francesca Tavazza, Andrew Briggs
Metallic transition metal dichalcogenides like tantalum diselenide (TaSe2) exhibit exciting behaviors at low temperatures including the emergence of charge density wave (CDW) states. In this work, density functional theory (DFT) is used to classify the

NIST Time and Frequency Bulletin

March 17, 2022
Kelsey Rodriguez
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 services.

Negative quasiprobabilities enhance phase estimation in quantum-optics experiment

March 1, 2022
Noah Lupu-Gladstein, Y. Batuhan Yilmaz, David Arvidsson-Shukur, Aharon Brodutch, Arthur Pang, Aephraim Steinberg, Nicole Halpern
Operator noncommutation, a hallmark of quantum theory, limits measurement precision, according to uncertainty principles. Wielded correctly, though, noncommutation can boost precision. A recent foundational result relates a metrological advantage with

Erratum: Collisions of room temperature helium with ultra-cold lithium and the van-der-Waals bound state of HeLi [Phys. Rev. A 101, 012702 (2020)]

February 28, 2022
Constantinos Makrides, Daniel Barker, James A. Fedchak, Julia Scherschligt, Stephen Eckel, Eite Tiesinga
We have found an error in the computation of the thermally-averaged total elastic rate coefficient for the collision of a room-temperature helium atom with an ultra-cold lithium atom presented. We omitted the factor $2/\sqrt\pi}$ in the normalization over
