      Abstract: Author(s): M. Kliesch, C. Gogolin, M. J. Kastoryano, A. Riera, and J. EisertMeasuring temperature on very small scales is a difficult task and it is not clear if temperature as a local property is even meaningful at such scales. New mathematical tools show that an intensive definition of temperature is possible whenever the global temperature is above a critical value.Creative Commons [Phys. Rev.

Scientists discover that adding periodic grooves to the surface of subwavelength metallic disks creates localized surface plasmons of magnetic character in addition to the typical electric ones.

      Abstract: Author(s): Meng Xiao, Z. Q. Zhang, and C. T. Chan Surface impedance of a photonic material governs how an impinging light wave behaves at its surface, whereas its bulk “band structure” determines what wave modes can propagate in it. Is there a surface-to-bulk correspondence? A new study of one-dimensional photonic crystals indeed uncovers a rigorous fundamental relationship between the two. Creative Commons [Phys. Rev.

  • Non-Abelian Majorana Doublets in Time-Reversal-Invariant Topological
           Superconductors

    • Authors: Xiong-Jun Liu; Chris L. M. Wong, K. T. Law
      First page: 021018
      Abstract: Author(s): Xiong-Jun Liu, Chris L. M. Wong, and K. T. Law Isolated Majorana fermions have been known to obey non-Abelian particle statistics. Pairs of bound Majorana fermions are now predicted to exist in topological superconductors with time-reversal symmetry. What type of statistics do such pairs obey? Theorists show for the first time that, “protected” by time-reversal symmetry, they obey a new type of non-Abelian statistics. Creative Commons [Phys. Rev. X 4, 021018] Published Tue Apr 29, 2014

  • Hall Effect Gyrators and Circulators

      Abstract: Author(s): Giovanni Viola and David P. DiVincenzo Microwave circulators, which perform one-way routing of microwave signals in ultralow-temperature devices, are essential in quantum technology; but currently used circulators are too bulky for future quantum computer applications. A fundamentally different approach based on an innovative use of the Hall effect promises excellent performance at much smaller scales. Creative Commons [Phys. Rev.

  • Three-Dimensional Fluid Motion in Faraday Waves: Creation of Vorticity and

      First page: 021021
      Abstract: Author(s): N. Francois, H. Xia, H. Punzmann, S. Ramsden, and M. Shats Faraday waves—nonlinear standing waves that appear on the surface of a vibrated liquid—can self-organize into a regular lattice of oscillating solitons (oscillons), which then “melts” into a disordered array as the driving amplitude increases. In a new experiment, tracer particles in a vibrated liquid reveal that the oscillon lattice generates two-dimensional turbulence that leads to its own melting. Creative Commons [Phys. Rev.

      Abstract: Author(s): J. Fatome, C. Finot, G. Millot, A. Armaroli, and S. Trillo Undular bores, e.g., large tidal waves that travel upstream in river estuaries, are a fascinating nonlinear wave phenomenon. The conditions needed to create them also occur in optical systems. A new experiment using four-wave mixing to generate multiple undular bores and their interactions in optical fibers provides an opportunity to study them in a laboratory setting.

  • Error Correction for Non-Abelian Topological Quantum Computation

    • Authors: James R. Wootton; Jan Burri, Sofyan Iblisdir, Daniel Loss
      First page: 011051
      Abstract: Author(s): James R. Wootton, Jan Burri, Sofyan Iblisdir, and Daniel Loss Topological quantum computation using non-Abelian anyons—exotic particlelike excitations that are neither bosons nor fermions—as qubits has been thought to be in no need of error correction. Theorists now show that active error correction is in fact necessary and offer a method for performing it. Creative Commons [Phys. Rev. X 4, 011051] Published Fri Mar 28, 2014

  • Hilbert-Glass Transition: New Universality of Temperature-Tuned Many-Body
           Dynamical Quantum Criticality

    • Authors: David Pekker; Gil Refael, Ehud Altman, Eugene Demler, Vadim Oganesyan
      First page: 011052
      Abstract: Author(s): David Pekker, Gil Refael, Ehud Altman, Eugene Demler, and Vadim Oganesyan Conventional phase transitions are usually characterized by a change in a fundamental thermodynamic observable, e.g., in density when liquid changes to vapor. A theoretical study of a one-dimensional disordered quantum spin chain reveals a new class of quantum phase transitions that leave no such signatures and pins down their origin.

  • Statistical Physics of Neural Systems with Nonadditive Dendritic Coupling

    • Authors: David Breuer; Marc Timme, Raoul-Martin Memmesheimer
      First page: 011053
      Abstract: Author(s): David Breuer, Marc Timme, and Raoul-Martin Memmesheimer Each dendrite in a biological neuron has long been thought to process the multiple inputs it receives in a simple additive fashion. Recent experiments, however, have demonstrated occurrences of nonadditive dendritic input processing. Theorists find that such single-neuron nonlinearity makes memory retrieval in a network of neurons more resilient to noise. Creative Commons [Phys. Rev. X 4, 011053] Published Fri Mar 28, 2014

  • Fermi-Pasta-Ulam Recurrence in Nonlinear Fiber Optics: The Role of
           Reversible and Irreversible Losses

    • Authors: Arnaud Mussot; Alexandre Kudlinski, Maxime Droques, Pascal Szriftgiser, Nail Akhmediev
      First page: 011054
      Abstract: Author(s): Arnaud Mussot, Alexandre Kudlinski, Maxime Droques, Pascal Szriftgiser, and Nail Akhmediev The celebrated Fermi-Pasta-Ulam recurrence phenomenon in nonlinear dynamics was first demonstrated experimentally in optical fibers 50 years after its theoretical discovery. But it was expected to be suppressed when the so-called third-third-order dispersion (TOD) became relevant. A new optical-fiber experiment shows that it not only survives in the presence of TOD, but disappears and reappears several times as the optical pump frequency is varied. Creative Commons [Phys. Rev.

Combining laser excitation and ionization of atoms with tracking and analysis of the associated alpha decay, a novel technique demonstrates its capability to probe with high sensitivity the hyperfine structure of exotic nuclear isotopes and determine their fundamental nuclear observables.

Mizuochi Use of nitrogen-vacancy (NV) centers in diamond for quantum applications requires fast switching between their two different charge states. Using a diamond diode, scientists now demonstrate for the first time deterministic, purely electrical, and room-temperature charge-state control of single NV centers on the time scale of a microsecond.
