HighFrequency Diode Effect In Superconducting Nb3Sn Microbridges, Sara Chahid, Serafim Teknowijoyo, Iris Mowgood, Armen Gulian
Mathematics, Physics, and Computer Science Faculty Articles and Research
The superconducting diode effect has recently been reported in a variety of systems and different symmetrybreaking mechanisms have been examined. However, the frequency range of these potentially important devices still remains obscure. We investigated superconducting microbridges of Nb3Sn in outofplane magnetic fields; optimum magnetic fields of ∼10 mT generate ∼10% diode efficiency, while higher fields of ∼15–20 mT quench the effect. The diode changes its polarity with magnetic field reversal. We documented superconductive diode rectification at frequencies up to 100 kHz, the highest reported as of today. Interestingly, the bridge resistance during diode operation reaches a value that is a …

Games are often used in the classroom to teach mathematical and physical concepts. Yet the available activities used to introduce quantum mechanics are often overwhelming even to upperlevel students. Further, the "games" in question range in focus and complexity from superficial introductions to games where quantum strategies result in decidedly nonclassical advantages, making it nearly impossible for people interested in quantum mechanics to have a simple introduction to the topic. In this talk, we introduce a straightforward and newly developed "Semiclassical Mastermind" based on the original version of mastermind but replace the colored pegs with 6 possible qubits (x+, x, …

Gluon TransverseMomentumDependent Distributions From LargeMomentum Effective Theory, Ruilin Zhu, Yao Ji, JianHui Zhang, Shuai Zhao
Physics Faculty Publications
We demonstrate that gluon transversemomentumdependent parton distribution functions (TMDPDFs) can be extracted from lattice calculations of appropriate Euclidean correlations in largemomentum effective theory (LaMET). Based on perturbative calculations of gluon unpolarized and helicity TMDPDFs, we present a matching formula connecting them and their LaMET counterparts, where the latter are renormalized in a scheme facilitating lattice calculations and converted to the MS ¯ scheme. The hard matching kernel is given up to oneloop level. We also show that the perturbative result is independent of the prescription used for the pinchpole singularity in the relevant correlations. Our results offer a guidance for …

Prospects For 𝛾*𝛾* → 𝜋𝜋 Via Lattice Qcd, Raúl Briceño, Andrew W. Jackura, Arkaitz Rodas, Juan V. Guerrero
Physics Faculty Publications
The 𝛾*𝛾* → 𝜋𝜋 scattering amplitude plays a key role in a wide range of phenomena, including understanding the inner structure of scalar resonances as well as constraining the hadronic contributions to the anomalous magnetic moment of the muon. In this work, we explain how the infinitevolume Minkowski amplitude can be constrained from finitevolume Euclidean correlation functions. The relationship between the finitevolume Euclidean correlation functions and the desired amplitude holds up to energies where 3𝜋 states can go on shell, and is exact up to exponentially small corrections that scale like 𝒪(e^{−m𝜋L}), where L is the spatial extent …

We report the first measurements of deep inelastic scattering spindependent azimuthal asymmetries in backtoback dihadron electroproduction in the deep inelastic scattering process. In this reaction, two hadrons are produced in opposite hemispheres along the z axis in the virtual photontarget nucleon centerofmass frame, with the first hadron produced in the currentfragmentation region and the second in the targetfragmentation region. The data were taken with longitudinally polarized electron beams of 10.2 and 10.6 GeV incident on an unpolarized liquidhydrogen target using the CLAS12 spectrometer at Jefferson Lab. Observed nonzero sinΔϕ modulations in ep→e'pπ^{+} X events, where Δϕ is the difference …

A multidimensional extraction of the structure function ratio from the hard exclusive ^{→}ep → e'n𝜋+ reaction above the resonance region has been performed. The study was done based on beamspin asymmetry measurements using a 10.6 GeV incident electron beam on a liquidhydrogen target and the CLAS12 spectrometer at Jefferson Lab. The measurements focus on the very forward regime (t/Q^{2}≪ 1) with a wide kinematic range of in the valence regime (0.17 < 𝓍_{B }< 0.55), and virtualities ranging from 1.5 GeV^{2} up to 6 GeV^{2}.

It is shown that the codewords of the binary and ternary Golay codes can be converted into rays in RP^{23} and RP^{11} that provide proofs of the KochenSpecker theorem in real state spaces of dimensions 24 and 12, respectively. Some implications of these results are discussed.
Fourier Acceleration In The Linear Sigma Model, Cameron Cianci
Fourier Acceleration In The Linear Sigma Model, Cameron Cianci
Honors Scholar Theses
The linear sigma model is a low energy effective model of Quantum Chromodynamics. This model mimics the breaking of chiral symmetry both spontaneously and explicitly through the quark condensate and pion mass matrix respectively. Fourier acceleration is a method that can be implemented in the Hybrid MonteCarlo algorithm which decreases autocorrelations due to critical slowing down through tuning the mass parameters in the HMC algorithm. Fourier acceleration is applied to the linear sigma model with a novel mass estimation procedure, by assuming the modes behave approximately like simple harmonic oscillators. The masses are chosen by sampling the expectation values of …

What Is Nonclassical About Uncertainty Relations?, Lorenzo Catani, Matthew S. Leifer, Giovanni Scala, David Schmid, Robert W. Spekkens
Mathematics, Physics, and Computer Science Faculty Articles and Research
Uncertainty relations express limits on the extent to which the outcomes of distinct measurements on a single state can be made jointly predictable. The existence of nontrivial uncertainty relations in quantum theory is generally considered to be a way in which it entails a departure from the classical worldview. However, this perspective is undermined by the fact that there exist operational theories which exhibit nontrivial uncertainty relations but which are consistent with the classical worldview insofar as they admit of a generalizednoncontextual ontological model. This prompts the question of what aspects of uncertainty relations, if any, cannot be realized in …

TwoStep Single Qubit Gates For Superconducting Qubits, Edward Takyi
Open Access Theses & Dissertations
Why quantum information processing? Contemporary manipulation and transmission of information is executed through physical machines (computers, routers, scanners, etc.) in which Classical Mechanics is used to describe the embodiment and transformation of information. However, the physical theory of the world is not Classical Mechanics. And so, there is no reason to suppose that machines following the laws of Classical Mechanics would have the same computational power like quantum machines. Quantum computers would break the rules of classical computers and they would be able solve problems that are intractable on conventional supercomputers.
In order to fabricate quantum computers and make significant …

The Impact Of A Nuclear Disturbance On A SpaceBased Quantum Network, Alexander Miloshevsky
Doctoral Dissertations
Quantum communications tap into the potential of quantum mechanics to go beyond the limitations of classical communications. Currently, the greatest challenge facing quantum networks is the limited transmission range of encoded quantum information. Spacebased quantum networks offer a means to overcome this limitation, however the performance of such a network operating in harsh conditions is unknown. This dissertation analyzes the capabilities of a spacebased quantum network operating in a nuclear disturbed environment. First, performance during normal operating conditions is presented using Gaussian beam modeling and atmospheric modeling to establish a baseline to compare against a perturbed environment. Then, the DEfense …

High Fidelity Universal Gates Performed On A ContinuouslyDecoupled Coherence Enhanced Transmon Qubit, Michael Senatore
Dissertations  ALL
Decoherence is the primary limiting factor for the utility of modern qubits and qubit networks; most chiefly, pure dephasing which limits the operational time any gatesequence can produce a highfidelity result. In this dissertation, I present the results of my experiment, performing fast, high fidelity, universal singlequbit gates, on a qubit which has been decoupled from pure dephasing resulting from environmental noise. This technique can expand operational ranges of qubits–such as allowing the highcoherence operation of a fluxtunable qubit far away from its fluxinsensitive sweetspot; broadening our selection of viable qubits by making otherwise lowcoherence qubits operable with high coherence, …

The operational approach to time is a cornerstone of relativistic theories, as evidenced by the notion of proper time. In standard quantum mechanics, however, time is an external parameter. Recently, many attempts have been made to extend the notion of proper time to quantum mechanics within a relational framework. Here, we use similar ideas combined with the relativistic massenergy equivalence to study an accelerating massive quantum particle with an internal clock system. We show that the ensuing evolution from the perspective of the particle’s internal clock is nonHermitian. This result does not rely on specific implementations of the clock. As …

Compilation Optimizations To Enhance Resilience Of Big Data Programs And Quantum Processors, Travis D. Lecompte
LSU Doctoral Dissertations
Modern computers can experience a variety of transient errors due to the surrounding environment, known as soft faults. Although the frequency of these faults is low enough to not be noticeable on personal computers, they become a considerable concern during largescale distributed computations or systems in more vulnerable environments like satellites. These faults occur as a bit flip of some value in a register, operation, or memory during execution. They surface as either program crashes, hangs, or silent data corruption (SDC), each of which can waste time, money, and resources. Hardware methods, such as shielding or error correcting memory (ECM), …
Symmetry Breaking Effects In LowDimensional Quantum Systems, Ke Wang
Symmetry Breaking Effects In LowDimensional Quantum Systems, Ke Wang
Doctoral Dissertations
Quantum criticality in lowdimensional quantum systems is known to host exotic behaviors. In quantum onedimension (1D), the emerging conformal group contains infinite generators, and conformal techniques, e.g., operator product expansion, give accurate and universal descriptions of underlying systems. In quantum twodimension (2D), the electronic interaction causes singular corrections to Fermiliquids characteristics. Meanwhile, the Dirac fermions in topological 2D materials can greatly enrich emerging phenomena. In this thesis, we study the symmetrybreaking effects of lowdimensional quantum criticality. In 1D, we consider two cases: timereversal symmetry (TRS) breaking in the Majorana conformal field theory (CFT) and the absence of conformal symmetry in …

Reservoir Engineering Of MultiPhoton States In Circuit Quantum Electrodynamics, Jeffrey M. Gertler
Doctoral Dissertations
The field of experimental quantum information has made significant progress towards useful computation but has been handicapped by the dissipative nature of physical qubits. Except for unwieldy and unrealized topological qubits, all quantum information systems experience natural dissipation, which limits the time scale for useful computation. However, this same dissipation, which induces errors requiring quantum error correction (QEC), can be used as a resource to perform a variety of important and unrealized tasks. In this thesis I discuss research into three uses of dissipation: manifold stabilization, state transfer, and QEC. With reservoir engineering, these tasks can be addressed in an …

With the advent of the noisyintermediate scale quantum (NISQ) era quantum computers are increasingly becoming a reality of the near future. Though universal computation still seems daunting, a great part of the excitement is about using quantum simulators to solve fundamental problems in fields ranging from quantum gravity to quantum manybody systems. This socalled second quantum revolution rests on two pillars. First, the ability to have precise control over experimental degrees of freedom is crucial for the realization of NISQ devices. Significant progress in the control and manipulation of qubits, atoms, and ions, as well as their interactions, has not …

Characterization Of Superconducting Hardware For Implementing Quantum Stabilizers, Kenneth Richard Dodge
Dissertations  ALL
Superconducting qubits are one of the leading approaches being investigated for building a scalable quantum computer. In the presence of external noise and perturbations plus local microscopic fluctuations and dissipation in the qubit environment, arbitrary quantum states will decohere, leading to bitflip and phaseflip errors of the qubit. In order to build a faulttolerant quantum computer that can preserve and process quantum information in the presence of noise and dissipation, one must implement some form of quantum error correction. Stabilizer operations are at the heart of quantum error correction and are typically implemented in softwarecontrolled entangling gates and measurements of …

Classification Of Pixel Tracks To Improve Track Reconstruction From ProtonProton Collisions, Kebur Fantahun, Jobin Joseph, Halle Purdom, Nibhrat Lohia
SMU Data Science Review
In this paper, machine learning techniques are used to reconstruct particle collision pathways. CERN (Conseil européen pour la recherche nucléaire) uses a massive underground particle collider, called the Large Hadron Collider or LHC, to produce particle collisions at extremely high speeds. There are several layers of detectors in the collider that track the pathways of particles as they collide. The data produced from collisions contains an extraneous amount of background noise, i.e., decays from known particle collisions produce fake signal. Particularly, in the first layer of the detector, the pixel tracker, there is an overwhelming amount of background noise that …

Control Of Nonlinear Properties Of Van Der Waals Materials, Rezlind Bushati
Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects
Van der Waals materials are a broad class of materials that exhibit unique optoelectronic properties. They provide a rich playground for which they can be integrated into current onchip devices due to their nanometerscale size, and be utilized for studying fundamental physics. Strong coupling of emitters to microcavities provides many opportunities for new exotic physics through the formation of hybrid quasiparticles excitonpolaritons. This thesis
focuses on exploring and enhancing nonlinearity of van der Waals materials through strongly coupling to microcavities. By taking advantage of the stacking order of TMDs, we show intense secondharmonic generation from bulk, centrosymmetric TMD systems. In …
Wideband And Relativistic Superradiance In Astrophysics, Christopher M. Wyenberg
Wideband And Relativistic Superradiance In Astrophysics, Christopher M. Wyenberg
Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository
In the quantum phenomenon of superradiance (SR) a population of inverted particles evolves, through its interaction with the quantized vacuum radiation field, into a highly entangled state capable of generating much greater radiative emission than predicted by the independent spontaneous decay of its constituent particles. The phenomenon has recently been applied to transient astrophysical processes but has thus far been restricted to particles sharing a common velocity. This thesis researches the effects of astrophysical velocity distributions upon SR, which are distinct from conventional regimes of the quantum optics literature in that they may possess extremely wide bandwidths, turbulent statistical properties, …

Magnetic Skyrmions Unwrapped, Alexey Kovalev
Alexey Kovalev Papers
Experiments with chiral magnets may hold the key to a better understanding of fundamental aspects of transformations between different skyrmionic states, necessary for magnetic memory and logic applications to become a reality.
With the aim of developing computing devices that operate with low power dissipation, scientists have been pursuing the idea of encoding information in magnetic states. Specifically, skyrmions, which can be thought of as whirllike states of magnetic moments, are promising candidates for this purpose. The advantage of skyrmions lies in their topological protection, a property implying that only a ‘global’ system modification can erase a skyrmion. Realizations of …

Quantum Computational Simulations For Condensed Matter Systems, Trevor Alan Keen
Doctoral Dissertations
In condensed matter physics, and especially in the study of strongly correlated electron systems, numerical simulation techniques are crucial to determine the properties of the system including interesting phases of matter that arise from electronelectron interactions. Many of these interesting phases of matter, including but not limited to Mottinsulating materials and possibly hightemperature superconducting systems, can be modeled by the Hubbard model. Although it is one of the simplest models to include electronelectron interactions, it cannot be solved analytically in more than one dimension and thus numerical techniques must be employed. Although there have been great strides in classical numerical …

Optimization Of Quantum Circuits Using Spin Bus Multiqubit Gates For Quantum Dots, Miguel Gonzalo Rodriguez
Optimization Of Quantum Circuits Using Spin Bus Multiqubit Gates For Quantum Dots, Miguel Gonzalo Rodriguez
Open Access Theses & Dissertations
The current conventional method for designing quantum circuits is to employ a number of single and twoqubit gates, which often necessitate a lengthy sequence, imposing severe constraints on quantum coherence and quantum circuit complexity. Coupling multiple spin qubits to a common spin chain can result in a generically multiqubit gate. It is demonstrated that the multiqubit gate can substantially reduce the depth of quantum circuits and establish multiqubit entanglement considerably more quickly.

Quantum computing has been an emerging technology in the past few decades. It utilizes the power of programmable quantum devices to perform computation, which can solve complex problems in a feasible time that is impossible with classical computers. Simulating quantum chemical systems using quantum computers is one of the most active research fields in quantum computing. However, due to the novelty of the technology and concept, most materials in the literature are not accessible for newbies in the field and sometimes can cause ambiguity for practitioners due to missing details.
