  • Ultralow-Noise SiN Trampoline Resonators for Sensing and Optomechanics

    • First page: 021001
      Abstract: Author(s): Christoph Reinhardt, Tina Müller, Alexandre Bourassa, and Jack C. Sankey
      Accurately measuring extremely small forces is important in many fields of physics, materials science, and engineering. Researchers demonstrate tiny “trampoline’’ mechanical sensors that are exquisitely sensitive to attonewton forces at room temperature.

      Abstract: Author(s): A. Hackett, D. Cellai, S. Gómez, A. Arenas, and J. P. Gleeson
      Modern society is permeated by systems with many numbers of nodes and connections (e.g., rail networks, airports). A theoretical study of the multiplex network consisting of European Union air routes and the London rail transportation system demonstrates the fragility of such a network.

      Abstract: Author(s): Dapeng Bi, Xingbo Yang, M. Cristina Marchetti, and M. Lisa Manning

      Abstract: Author(s): Miguel A. Bandres, Mikael C. Rechtsman, and Mordechai Segev
      Quasicrystals are a class of materials that exhibit long-range order but no periodicity. A study of topological transport in quasicrystals shows that, surprisingly, a two-dimensional photonic quasicrystal exhibits a topological insulating phase.

  • Maximal Adaptive-Decision Speedups in Quantum-State Readout

    • First page: 011017
      Abstract: Author(s): B. D’Anjou, L. Kuret, L. Childress, and W. A. Coish
      Reducing the time necessary for experimental measurements allows more data to be obtained, which in turn leads to a more sensitive result. A roughly twofold speedup in differentiating between two charge states of a point defect in diamond is demonstrated, which could substantially facilitate the detection of small magnetic fields.

      Abstract: Author(s): Rodrigo Gallego and Leandro Aolita
      Quantum key distribution, a process employed in encrypted transactions, relies on Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen steering when one party has untrusted devices. For the first time, a formal framework of steering as a physical resource is presented.

      High-temperature superconductivity—the property of zero electrical resistance at relatively high temperature—is manifested in very limited classes of materials. An examination of the unique relationship between electronic structures and lattice structural units of the two known classes of high-temperature superconductors helps to identify possible new classes of these materials.

      Abstract: Author(s): G. P. Brandino, J.-S. Caux, and R. M. Konik
      Theorists demonstrate a quantum variant of the Kolmogorov-Arnold-Moser theorem, a theorem in classical mechanics that concerns the crossover between integrability and chaos. Integrability breaking in the Lieb-Liniger model, a model describing one-dimensional Bose gases, leads to a deformation, not destruction, of the model’s conserved quantities.
