Inverse Design Of LongRange Intensity Correlation In Scattering Media, M. Koirala, R. Sarma, H. Cao, Alexey Yamilov
Inverse Design Of LongRange Intensity Correlation In Scattering Media, M. Koirala, R. Sarma, H. Cao, Alexey Yamilov

We demonstrate a possibility of using geometry to deterministically control nonlocal correlation of waves undergoing mesoscopic transport through a disordered waveguide. In case of nondissipative medium, we find an explicit relationship between correlation and the shape of the system. Inverting this relationship, we realize inverse design: we obtain specific waveguide shape that leads to a predetermined nonlocal correlation. The proposed technique offers an approach to coherent control of wave propagation in random media that is complementary to wavefront shaping.

We present a search for gravitational waves from 222 pulsars with rotation frequencies ≳ 10 Hz. We use advanced LIGO data from its first and second observing runs spanning 20152017, which provides the highestsensitivity gravitationalwave data so far obtained. In this search we target emission from both the l = m = 2 mass quadrupole mode, with a frequency at twice that of the pulsar's rotation, and the l = 2, m = 1 mode, with a frequency at the pulsar rotation frequency. The search finds no evidence for gravitationalwave emission from any pulsar at either frequency. For the l = m = 2 mode search ...

Observing changes in molecular structure requires atomicscale Ångstrom and femtosecond spatiotemporal resolution. We use the Fourier transform (FT) variant of laserinduced electron diffraction (LIED), FTLIED, to directly retrieve the molecular structure of H_{2}O^{+} with picometer and femtosecond resolution without a priori knowledge of the molecular structure nor the use of retrieval algorithms or ab initio calculations. We identify a symmetrically stretched H_{2}O^{+} fielddressed structure that is most likely in the ground electronic state. We subsequently study the nuclear response of an isolated water molecule to an external laser field at four different field strengths. We show ...
Multicenter DistortedWave Approach For ElectronImpact Ionization Of Molecules, Esam Ali, Don H. Madison
Multicenter DistortedWave Approach For ElectronImpact Ionization Of Molecules, Esam Ali, Don H. Madison
Physics Faculty Research & Creative Works
We have previously used the molecular threebody distortedwave model to examine electronimpact single ionization of molecules. One of the possible weaknesses of this approach lies in the fact that the continuum electron wave functions do not depend on the orientation of the molecule. Here we introduce a model called the multicenter molecular threebody distortedwave (MCM3DW) approach, for which the continuum electron wave functions depend on the orientation of the molecule at the time of ionization. The MCM3DW results are compared with experimental data taken from work by Dorn and colleagues [Ren, Phys. Rev. A 91, 032707 (2015)10.1103/PhysRevA ...

Isolated spinning neutron stars, asymmetric with respect to their rotation axis, are expected to be sources of continuous gravitational waves. The most sensitive searches for these sources are based on accurate matched filtering techniques that assume the continuous wave to be phase locked with the pulsar beamed emission. While matched filtering maximizes the search sensitivity, a significant signaltonoise ratio loss will happen in the case of a mismatch between the assumed and the true signal phase evolution. Narrowband algorithms allow for a small mismatch in the frequency and spindown values of the pulsar while coherently integrating the entire dataset. In ...

We have measured fully differential cross sections (FDCS) for ionization in 75keVp+H2 collisions for ejected electron speeds close to the projectile speed. The data were analyzed in dependence on both the electron emission angle and the projectile scattering angle. Pronounced postcollisional effects between the projectile and the ejected electrons were observed. Significant differences between experiment and theory and between two conceptually very similar theoretical models were found. This shows that in the region of electronprojectile velocitymatching the FDCS is very sensitive to the details of the underlying fewbody dynamics.

The impact of anharmonicity on the vibrational entropy and heat capacity of UO2 has been investigated from 10 to 1200 K using inelastic neutronscattering measurements of the phonon density of states (PDOS). Small changes in the PDOS are observed from 10 to 295 K, with more noticeable changes appearing in the 750 and 1200K data. The specific heat determined from the PDOS measurements is in agreement with macroscopic specific heat measurements, and the overall impact of nondilation anharmonicity on the specific heat has been shown to be less than 2%. An analysis of the phonon measurements shows that the softening ...

We present the results of a search for longduration gravitationalwave transients in the data from the Advanced LIGO second observation run; we search for gravitationalwave transients of 2500 s duration in the 242048 Hz frequency band with minimal assumptions about signal properties such as waveform morphologies, polarization, sky location or time of occurrence. Signal families covered by these search algorithms include fallback accretion onto neutron stars, broadband chirps from innermost stable circular orbit waves around rotating black holes, eccentric inspiralmergerringdown compact binary coalescence waveforms, and other models.

The recent discovery by Advanced LIGO and Advanced Virgo of a gravitational wave signal from a binary neutron star inspiral has enabled tests of general relativity (GR) with this new type of source. This source, for the first time, permits tests of strongfield dynamics of compact binaries in the presence of matter. In this Letter, we place constraints on the dipole radiation and possible deviations from GR in the postNewtonian coefficients that govern the inspiral regime. Bounds on modified dispersion of gravitational waves are obtained; in combination with information from the observed electromagnetic counterpart we can also constrain effects due ...
Transverse Localization Of Transmission Eigenchannels, Hasan Yılmaz, Chia Wei Hsu, Alexey Yamilov, Hui Cao
Transverse Localization Of Transmission Eigenchannels, Hasan Yılmaz, Chia Wei Hsu, Alexey Yamilov, Hui Cao
Physics Faculty Research & Creative Works
Transmission eigenchannels are building blocks of coherent wave transport in diffusive media, and selective excitation of individual eigenchannels can lead to diverse transport behaviour. An essential yet poorly understood property is the transverse spatial profile of each eigenchannel, which is relevant for the associated energy density and critical for coupling light into and out of it. Here, we discover that the transmission eigenchannels of a disordered slab possess exponentially localized incident and outgoing profiles, even in the diffusive regime far from Anderson localization. Such transverse localization arises from a combination of reciprocity, local coupling of spatial modes and nonlocal correlations ...

We report an experimental and theoretical investigation of electronimpact single ionization of the highest occupied molecular orbital 1t_{2} and the next highest occupied molecular orbital 2a_{1} states of CH_{4} at an incident electron energy of 250 eV. Triple differential cross sections measured in two different laboratories were compared with results calculated within the molecular 3body distorted wave and generalized Sturmian function theoretical models. For ionization of the 1t_{2} state, the binary peak was observed to have a single maximum near the momentum transfer direction that evolved into a double peak for increasing projectile scattering angles, as ...

Advanced LIGO's second observing run (O2), conducted from 2016 November 30 to 2017 August 25, combined with Advanced Virgo's first observations in 2017 August, witnessed the birth of gravitationalwave multimessenger astronomy. The first ever gravitationalwave detection from the coalescence of two neutron stars, GW170817, and its gammaray counterpart, GRB 170817A, led to an electromagnetic followup of the event at an unprecedented scale. Several teams from across the world searched for EM/neutrino counterparts to GW170817, paving the way for the discovery of optical, Xray, and radio counterparts. In this article, we describe the online identification of gravitationalwave transients ...

Even though the integer quantum Hall transition has been investigated for nearly four decades its critical behavior remains a puzzle. The best theoretical and experimental results for the localization length exponent ν differ significantly from each other, casting doubt on our fundamental understanding. While this discrepancy is often attributed to longrange Coulomb interactions, Gruzberg et al. [Phys. Rev. B 95, 125414 (2017)10.1103/PhysRevB.95.125414] recently suggested that the semiclassical ChalkerCoddington model, widely employed in numerical simulations, is incomplete, questioning the established central theoretical results. To shed light on the controversy, we perform a highaccuracy study of the ...

Fractional Brownian motion (FBM) is a Gaussian stochastic process with stationary, longtime correlated increments and is frequently used to model anomalous diffusion processes. We study numerically FBM confined to a finite interval with reflecting boundary conditions. The probability density function of this reflected FBM at long times converges to a stationary distribution showing distinct deviations from the fully flat distribution of amplitude 1/L in an interval of length L found for reflected normal Brownian motion. While for superdiffusion, corresponding to a mean squared displacement (MSD) ⟨X^{2}(t)⟩ ≃ t^{α} with 1 < α < 2, the probability density function is lowered in the centre of the interval and rises towards the boundaries, for subdiffusion (0 < α < 1) this behaviour is reversed and the particle density is depleted close to the boundaries. The MSD in these cases at long times converges to a stationary value, which is, remarkably, monotonically increasing with the anomalous diffusion exponent α. Our a priori surprising results may have interesting ...

We analyze the impact of a proposed tidal instability coupling p modes and g modes within neutron stars on GW170817. This nonresonant instability transfers energy from the orbit of the binary to internal modes of the stars, accelerating the gravitationalwave driven inspiral. We model the impact of this instability on the phasing of the gravitational wave signal using three parameters per star: An overall amplitude, a saturation frequency, and a spectral index. Incorporating these additional parameters, we compute the Bayes factor (ln B^{pg}_{!pg}) comparing our pg model to a standard one. We find that the observed signal is ...

The magneticfieldtuned quantum superconductorinsulator transitions of disordered amorphous indium oxide films are a paradigm in the study of quantum phase transitions and exhibit powerlaw scaling behavior. For superconducting indium oxide films with low disorder, such as the ones reported on here, the highfield state appears to be a quantumcorrected metal. Resistance data across the superconductormetal transition in these films are shown here to obey an activated scaling form appropriate to a quantum phase transition controlled by an infiniterandomness fixed point in the universality class of the random transversefield Ising model. Collapse of the fielddependent resistance vs temperature data is obtained ...

On August 17, 2017, the Advanced LIGO and Advanced Virgo gravitationalwave detectors observed a lowmass compact binary inspiral. The initial sky localization of the source of the gravitationalwave signal, GW170817, allowed electromagnetic observatories to identify NGC 4993 as the host galaxy. In this work, we improve initial estimates of the binary's properties, including component masses, spins, and tidal parameters, using the known source location, improved modeling, and recalibrated Virgo data. We extend the range of gravitationalwave frequencies considered down to 23 Hz, compared to 30 Hz in the initial analysis. We also compare results inferred using several signal models ...

Theoretical and experimental resonance strengths for KLL dielectronic recombination (DR) into He, Li, Be, and Blike mercury ions are presented, based on stateresolved DR xray spectra recorded at the Heidelberg electronbeam ion trap. The DR resonance strengths are experimentally extracted by normalizing them to simultaneously recorded radiative recombination signals. The results are compared to stateoftheart atomic calculations that include relativistic electron correlation and configuration mixing effects. Combining the present data with other existing ones, we derive an improved semiempirical Zscaling law for DR resonance strengths as a function of the atomic number, taking into account higherorder relativistic corrections, which are ...

Astrophysical sources of gravitational waves, such as binary neutron star and black hole mergers or corecollapse supernovae, can drive relativistic outflows, giving rise to nonthermal highenergy emission. Highenergy neutrinos are signatures of such outflows. The detection of gravitational waves and highenergy neutrinos from common sources could help establish the connection between the dynamics of the progenitor and the properties of the outflow. We searched for associated emission of gravitational waves and highenergy neutrinos from astrophysical transients with minimal assumptions using data from Advanced LIGO from its first observing run O1, and data from the Antares and IceCube neutrino observatories from ...

We present a search for prompt gammaray counterparts to compact binary coalescence gravitational wave (GW) candidates from Advanced LIGO's first observing run (O1). As demonstrated by the multimessenger observations of GW170817/GRB 170817A, electromagnetic and GW observations provide complementary information about the astrophysical source, and in the case of weaker candidates, may strengthen the case for an astrophysical origin. Here we investigate lowsignificance GW candidates from the O1 compact binary coalescence searches using the Fermi GammaRay Burst Monitor (GBM), leveraging its all sky and broad energy coverage. Candidates are ranked and compared to background to measure the significance. Those ...

Eddy current (EC) inspection is used extensively in nondestructive testing (NDT) to detect surfacebreaking defects of engineering components. However, the sensitivity of conventional eddy current inspection has plateaued in recent years. The ability to detect submillimetre defects before it becomes critical would allow engineering components to remain inservice safely for longer. Typically, it is required that higher frequency EC is employed to achieve a suitable sensitivity for detection of such submillimetre defects. However, that would lead to significant electromagnetic noise affecting the sensitivity of the inspection. To overcome this issue, the electricalresonance based eddy current method has been proposed, where ...

We demonstrate an angular highharmonic spectroscopy method to probe the spinning dynamics of a molecular rotation wave packet in real time. With the excitation of two timedelayed, polarizationskewed pump pulses, the molecular ensemble is impulsively kicked to rotate unidirectionally, which is subsequently irradiated by another delayed probe pulse for highorder harmonic generation (HHG). The spatiotemporal evolution of the molecular rotation wave packet is visualized from the timedependent angular distributions of the HHG yields and frequency shift measured at various polarization directions and time delays of the probe pulse. The observed frequency shift in HHG is demonstrated to arise from the ...

On 17 August 2017, the LIGO and Virgo observatories made the first direct detection of gravitational waves from the coalescence of a neutron star binary system. The detection of this gravitationalwave signal, GW170817, offers a novel opportunity to directly probe the properties of matter at the extreme conditions found in the interior of these stars. The initial, minimalassumption analysis of the LIGO and Virgo data placed constraints on the tidal effects of the coalescing bodies, which were then translated to constraints on neutron star radii. Here, we expand upon previous analyses by working under the hypothesis that both bodies were ...

We study the interplay of general relativity, the equivalence principle, and highprecision experiments involving atomic transitions and gfactor measurements. In particular, we derive a generalized Dirac Hamiltonian, which describes both the gravitational coupling for weak fields and the electromagnetic coupling, e.g., to a central Coulomb field. An approximate form of this Hamiltonian is used to derive the leading gravitational corrections to transition frequencies and g factors. The position dependence of atomic transitions is shown to be compatible with the equivalence principle, up to a very good approximation. The compatibility of gfactor measurements requires a deeper subtle analysis in order ...

By combining scanning tunneling microscopy/spectroscopy and firstprinciples calculations, we systematically study the local electronic states of magnetic dopants V and Cr in the topological insulator (TI) Sb_{2}Te_{3}. Spectroscopic imaging shows diverse local defect states between Cr and V, which agree with our firstprinciple calculations. The unique spectroscopic features of V and Cr dopants provide electronic fingerprints for the codoped magnetic TI samples with the enhanced quantum anomalous Hall effect. Our results also facilitate the exploration of the underlying mechanism of the enhanced quantum anomalous Hall temperature in Cr/V codoped TIs.

We analyze the influence of longrange correlated (colored) external noise on extinction phase transitions in growth and spreading processes. Uncorrelated environmental noise (i.e., temporal disorder) was recently shown to give rise to an unusual infinitenoise critical point [Europhys. Lett. 112, 30002 (2015)EULEEJ0295507510.1209/02955075/112/30002]. It is characterized by enormous density fluctuations that increase without limit at criticality. As a result, a typical population decays much faster than the ensemble average, which is dominated by rare events. Using the logistic evolution equation as an example, we show here that positively correlated (red) environmental noise further enhances these ...
