  • Lukas, Kevin; Liu, W. S.; Joshi, G.; Zebarjadi, Mona; Dresselhaus, Mildred (American Physical Society, 2012-05)
    Nanostructuring has been shown to be an effective approach to reduce the lattice thermal conductivity and improve the thermoelectric figure of merit. Because the experimentally measured thermal conductivity includes ...

    We experimentally investigate the role of size effects and boundary scattering on the thermal conductivity of silicon-germanium alloys. The thermal conductivities of a series of epitaxially grown Si[subscript 1-x] Ge[subscript ...
  • Magesan, Easwar; Cappellaro, Paola (American Physical Society, 2013-08)
    Efficient methods for characterizing the performance of quantum measurements are important in the experimental quantum sciences. Ideally, one requires both a physically relevant distinguishability measure between measurement ...
  • Sears, J.; Bader, Andrew; Granetz, Robert S.; Parker, Ronald R.; Bonoli, Paul T.; Hutchinson, Ian H.; Wukitch, Stephen James (IOP Publishing, 2012-09)
    Ion cyclotron resonance heating is the primary auxiliary heating on the Alcator C-Mod tokamak and is commonly used on other devices, and is planned for use on ITER. The RF-power density on C-Mod is above 5 MW m−3 providing ...
  • Cardin, Michel-Alexandre; Kolfschoten, Gwendolyn L.; Frey, Daniel; de Neufville, Richard; de Weck, Olivier L.; Geltner, David M. (INCOSE-International Council on Systems Engineering, 2012-07)
    This study presents an experimental methodology to measure how concept generation procedures can affect the anticipated lifecycle performance of engineering systems design concepts. The methodology is based on objective ...

    The surface of a topological crystalline insulator (TCI) carries an even number of Dirac cones protected by crystalline symmetry. We epitaxially grew high-quality Pb[subscript 1−x]Sn[subscript x]Te(111) films and investigated ...
  • Skirlo, Scott A.; Lu, Ling; Igarashi, Yuichi; Yan, Qinghui; Joannopoulos, John D.; Soljacic, Marin (American Physical Society, 2015-12)
    Despite great interest in the quantum anomalous Hall phase and its analogs, all experimental studies in electronic and bosonic systems have been limited to a Chern number of one. Here, we perform microwave transmission ...
  • Buongiorno, Jacopo; Hu, Lin-Wen; Gerardi, Craig; McKrell, Thomas J. (American Society of Mechanical Engineers, 2008-08)
    This paper presents the results of an experimental study on nucleate pool boiling. Experiments were performed using vapor-deposited thin films which were electrically heated. High-speed infrared and visible cameras ...
  • Lu, Ling; Wang, Zhiyu; Ye, Dexin; Ran, Lixin; Fu, Liang; Joannopoulos, John D.; Soljacic, Marin (American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), 2015-07)
    The massless solutions to the Dirac equation are described by the so-called Weyl Hamiltonian. The Weyl equation requires a particle to have linear dispersion in all three dimensions while being doubly degenerate at a single ...
  • Zhang, Jingfu; Moussa, Osama; Laflamme, Raymond; Gangloff, Dorian (American Physical Society (APS), 2011-09)
    More than ten years ago a first step toward quantum error correction (QEC) was implemented [ Phys. Rev. Lett. 81 2152 (1998)]. The work showed there was sufficient control in nuclear magnetic resonance to implement QEC, ...

    The quantum private query is a quantum cryptographic protocol to recover information from a database, preserving both user and data privacy: the user can test whether someone has retained information on which query was ...
  • Huber, Michael G.; Arif, M.; Pushin, D. A.; Cory, David G. (American Physical Society (APS), 2011-10)
    A decoherence-free subspace (DFS) is an important class of quantum-error-correcting (QEC) codes that have been proposed for fault-tolerant quantum computation. The applications of QEC techniques, however, are not limited ...
