Zeeman-resolved Autler-Townes splitting in Rydberg atoms with a tunable RF resonance and a single transition dipole moment

February 21, 2024
Noah Schlossberger, Drew Rotunno, Aly Artusio-Glimpse, Nik Prajapati, Samuel Berweger, Dangka Shylla, Matt Simons, Christopher L. Holloway
Applying a magnetic field as a method for tuning the frequency of Autler-Townes splitting for Rydberg electrometry has recently been demonstrated. In this Letter, we provide a theoretical understanding of Rydberg electromechanically-induced-transparency

Advancing Measurement Science for Microelectronics: CHIPS R&D Metrology Program

February 13, 2024
Marla L. Dowell, Hannah Brown, Gretchen Greene, Paul D. Hale, Brian Hoskins, Sarah Hughes, Bob R. Keller, R Joseph Kline, June W. Lau, Jeff Shainline
The CHIPS and Science Act of 2022 called for NIST to "carry out a microelectronics research program to enable advances and breakthroughs....that will accelerate the underlying R&D for metrology of next-generation microelectronics and ensure the

Emission Ghost Imaging: reconstruction with data augmentation

February 1, 2024
Kevin J. Coakley, Heather H. Chen-Mayer, Bruce D. Ravel, Daniel Josell, Nikolai Klimov, Sarah Robinson, Daniel S. Hussey
Ghost Imaging enables 2D reconstruction of an object even though particles transmitted or emitted by the object of interest are detected with a single pixel detector without spatial resolution. This is possible because the incident beam is spatially

Intra-grain local luminescence properties of CdSe0.1Te0.9 Thin Films

December 25, 2023
Ganga Neupane, Behrang Hamadani, David Albin, Joel Duenow, Matthew Reese, Susanna Thon
We report on the local photoluminescence properties of grains and grain boundaries of CdSe0.1Te0.9 thin film deposited by the colossal grain growth method using a wide-field hyperspectral imaging technique. We observed significant variations in the

Visualizing the merger of tunably coupled graphene quantum dots

December 6, 2023
Daniel Walkup, Fereshte Ghahari, Steven R. Blankenship, Kenji Watanabe, Takashi Taniguchi, Nikolai Zhitenev, Joseph A. Stroscio
Coupled quantum dots have been realized in a wide variety of physical systems and have attracted interest for many different applications. Here, we examine novel graphene quantum dots in backgated devices on hBN, and visualize their merger using scanning

Elastic behaviour of orientation-correlated grains in multiphase aggregates

November 1, 2023
Thomas Gnaupel-Herold
Diffraction elastic constants (DECs) describe the elastic response of a subset of orientation-correlated grains which share a common lattice vector. DECs reflect the elastic behaviour of the single-crystal constituents through their dependence on grain

Superconducting Nanowire Single-Photon Detector Arrays for the Near- to Mid-Infrared

October 31, 2023
Benedikt Hampel, Richard Mirin, Sae Woo Nam, Varun Verma
Superconducting Nanowire Single-Photon Detectors (SNSPDs) are excellent devices for the analysis of faint light from the ultraviolet to the mid-infrared. Recent developments push their broad wavelength bandwidth further into the mid-infrared towards 20 μm

A superconducting nanowire single-photon camera with 400,000 pixels

October 25, 2023
Bakhrom Oripov, Dana Rampini, Jason Allmaras, Matt Shaw, Sae Woo Nam, Boris Korzh, Adam McCaughan
For the past 50 years, superconducting detectors have offered exceptional sensitivity and speed for detecting faint electromagnetic signals in a wide range of applications. These detectors operate at very low temperatures and generate a minimum of excess

Observation of anisotropic superfluid density in an artificial crystal

October 18, 2023
Ian Spielman, Mingshu Zhao, Junhent Tao
We experimentally and theoretically investigate the anisotropic speed of sound of an atomic superfluid (SF) Bose-Einstein condensate in a 1D optical lattice. Because the speed of sound derives from the superfluid density, implying that this density is

Activation loop plasticity and active site coupling in the MAP kinase, ERK2

October 6, 2023
Laurel Pegram, Demian Riccardi, NATALIE AHN
Previous studies of the protein kinase, ERK2, using NMR and hydrogen-exchange measurements have shown changes in dynamics accompanying its activation by phosphorylation. However, knowledge about the conformational motions involved is incomplete. Here, we

Harmonic dependence of thermal magnetic particle imaging

September 22, 2023
Thinh Bui, Mark-Alexander Henn, Weston L. Tew, Megan Catterton, Solomon I. Woods
Advances in instrumentation and tracer materials are still required to enable sensitive and accurate 3D temperature monitoring by magnetic particle imaging. We have developed a magnetic particle imaging instrument to observe temperature variations using
