  • Bush, John W. M. (Annual Reviews, 2015-01)
    Yves Couder, Emmanuel Fort, and coworkers recently discovered that a millimetric droplet sustained on the surface of a vibrating fluid bath may self-propel through a resonant interaction with its own wave field. This article ...
  • Braakman, Rogier; Smith, Eric (Public Library of Science, 2014-2)
  • Song, Gang; Tin, Chung; Poon, Chi-Sang (Springer-Verlag, 2014-12)
    Current cellular-based connectomics approaches aim to delineate the functional or structural organizations of mammalian brain circuits through neuronal activity mapping and/or axonal tracing. To discern possible connectivity ...
  • Moshkovitz, Dana (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2014-10)
    The Parallel Repetition Theorem upper-bounds the value of a repeated (tensored) two prover game in terms of the value of the base game and the number of repetitions. In this work we give a simple transformation on games – ...
  • Drew, H. Dennis; Lee, Patrick A.; Colbert, Jacob Reid (American Physical Society, 2014-09)
    We propose an experiment to use the magneto-optical Faraday effect to probe the dynamic Hall conductivity of spin-liquid candidates. Theory predicts that an external magnetic field will generate an internal gauge field. ...
  • Chen, Wenlan; Lin, Qian; Gullans, Michael; Lukin, Mikhail D.; Beck, Kristin Marie; Vuletic, Vladan (American Physical Society, 2014-09)
    Deterministic photon-photon interactions are a long-standing goal in optical science. Using an atomic ensemble inside a cavity, we demonstrate the mutual cross modulation of two continuous light beams at the level of ...
  • Wood, Christopher J.; Abutaleb, Mohamed O.; Huber, Michael G.; Arif, Muhammad; Cory, David G.; Pushin, Dmitry A. (American Physical Society, 2014-09)
    We investigate quantum coherences in the presence of noise by entangling the spin and path degrees of freedom of the output neutron beam from a noisy three-blade perfect crystal neutron interferometer. We find that in the ...
  • Buonassisi, Tonio; Grossman, Jeffrey C.; Johlin, Eric Carl; Simmons, Christie B. (American Physical Society, 2014-09)
    Low hole mobility currently limits the efficiency of amorphous silicon photovoltaic devices. We explore three possible phenomena contributing to this low mobility: coordination defects, self-trapping ionization displacement ...
  • Lan, Tian; Wen, Xiao-Gang (American Physical Society, 2014-09)
    String-net models allow us to systematically construct and classify (2+1)-dimensional [(2+1)D] topologically ordered states which can have gapped boundaries. We can use a simple ideal string-net wave function, which is ...
  • Kwee, P.; Miller, John; Isogai, Tomoki; Barsotti, Lisa; Evans, Matthew J. (American Physical Society, 2014-09)
    Squeezed states of light have been successfully employed in interferometric gravitational-wave detectors to reduce quantum noise, thus becoming one of the most promising options for extending the astrophysical reach of the ...
  • Agha-mohammadi, Ali-akbar; Ure, Nazim Kemal; How, Jonathan P.; Vian, John (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2014-09)
    In persistent missions, taking system’s health and capability degradation into account is an essential factor to predict and avoid failures. The state space in health-aware planning problems is often a mixture of continuous ...
  • Li, Rui; Platt Jr., Robert; Yuan, Wenzhen; Pas, Andreas ten; Roscup, Nathan; Srinivasan, Mandayam A.; Adelson, Edward H. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2014-09)
    Robust manipulation and insertion of small parts can be challenging because of the small tolerances typically involved. The key to robust control of these kinds of manipulation interactions is accurate tracking and control ...
  • Skirlo, Scott A.; Lu, Ling; Soljacic, Marin (American Physical Society, 2014-09)
    Current experimental realizations of the quantum anomalous Hall phase in both electronic and photonic systems have been limited to a Chern number of one. In photonics, this corresponds to a single-mode one-way edge waveguide. ...
  • Au, Yat Shan; Connolly, Colin B.; Ketterle, Wolfgang; Doyle, John M. (American Physical Society, 2014-09)
    We measure the ratio γ of the momentum transfer–to–vibrational quenching cross section for molecular thorium monoxide (ThO) [X([superscript 1]Σ[superscript +]), v = 1, J = 0] in collisions with atomic helium between 800 ...
  • Akondi, C. S.; Annand, J. R. M.; Arends, H. J.; Beck, R.; Borisov, N.; Braghieri, A.; Briscoe, W. J.; Cherepnya, S.; Collicott, C.; Costanza, S.; Downie, E. J.; Dieterle, M.; Fix, A.; Fil’kov, L. V.; Garni, S.; Glazier, D. I.; Gradl, W.; Gurevich, G.; Hall Barrientos, P.; Hamilton, D.; Hornidge, D.; Howdle, D.; Huber, G. M.; Kashevarov, V. L.; Keshelashvili, I.; Kondratiev, R.; Korolija, M.; Krusche, B.; Lazarev, A.; Lisin, V.; Livingston, K.; MacGregor, I. J. D.; Mancel, J.; Manley, D. M.; Martel, P.; McNicoll, E. F.; Meyer, W.; Middleton, D.; Miskimen, R.; Mushkarenkov, A.; Nefkens, B. M. K.; Neganov, A.; Nikolaev, A.; Oberle, M.; Ostrick, M.; Ortega, H.; Ott, P.; Otte, P. B.; Oussena, B.; Pedroni, P.; Polonski, A.; Polyanski, V. V.; Prakhov, S.; Reicherz, G.; Rostomyan, T.; Sarty, A.; Schumann, S.; Steffen, O.; Strakovsky, I. I.; Strub, Th.; Supek, I.; Tiator, L.; Thomas, A.; Unverzagt, M.; Usov, Yu. A.; Watts, D. P.; Werthmüller, D.; Witthauer, L.; Wolfes, M.; Bernstein, Aron M. (American Physical Society, 2014-09)
    We present new data for the transverse target asymmetry T and the very first data for the beam-target asymmetry F in the [→ over γ][→ over p] → ηp reaction up to a center-of-mass energy of W = 1.9  GeV. The data were ...
  • Hohm, Olaf; Samtleben, Henning (American Physical Society, 2014-09)
    We develop exceptional field theory for E[subscript 8(8)], defined on a (3 + 248)-dimensional generalized spacetime with extended coordinates in the adjoint representation of E[subscript 8(8)]. The fields transform under ...
  • Fu, Liang; Hsieh, Timothy Hwa-wei (American Physical Society, 2014-09)
    A quantum phase transition is usually achieved by tuning physical parameters in a Hamiltonian at zero temperature. Here, we show that the ground state of a topological phase itself encodes critical properties of its ...
  • Au, Yat Shan; Connolly, Colin B.; Ketterle, Wolfgang; Doyle, John M. (American Physical Society, 2014-09)
    Inelastic cross sections for collisions between thorium (Th) and helium ([superscript 3]He) are measured. For Th[[superscript 3]F[subscript 2]]–[superscript 3]He, we determine the ratio of momentum transfer to Zeeman ...
  • Barry, Jennifer; Barry, Daniel T.; Aaronson, Scott (American Physical Society, 2014-09)
    We present quantum observable Markov decision processes (QOMDPs), the quantum analogs of partially observable Markov decision processes (POMDPs). In a QOMDP, an agent is acting in a world where the state is represented as ...
  • Megias, G. D.; Barbaro, M. B.; Caballero, J. A.; Donnelly, T. William; Gonzalez-Jimenez, R. (American Physical Society, 2014-09)
    We present a systematic analysis of the quasielastic scaling functions computed within the relativistic mean field (RMF) theory and we propose an extension of the superscaling approach (SuSA) model based on these results. ...
