      Abstract: Author(s): A. J. Weinstein, C. U. Lei, E. E. Wollman, J. Suh, A. Metelmann, A. A. Clerk, and K. C. SchwabElectromagnetic resonators can be used to probe the quantum properties of mechanical objects. Scientists show that an imbalance between phonon absorption and emission—a distinct quantum signature—can be traced back to quantum fluctuations of either mechanical or microwave fields, depending on the measurement details.Creative Commons [Phys.

      Abstract: Author(s): Shang-Chi Jiang, Xiang Xiong, Yuan-Sheng Hu, Yu-Hui Hu, Guo-Bin Ma, Ru-Wen Peng, Cheng Sun, and Mu Wang Metamaterials, artificial structures with unexpected properties, only function over a limited spectral window. Scientists have recently determined that the technique of combining a metallic metamaterial with a dielectric interlayer creates a device that modulates light over a wide range of frequencies.

      Abstract: Author(s): Vamshi M. Katukuri, Viktor Yushankhai, Liudmila Siurakshina, Jeroen van den Brink, Liviu Hozoi, and Ioannis Rousochatzakis At half filling of the d electron shell, the interplay of crystal-field interactions, spin-orbit couplings, and on-site Coulomb repulsion gives rise to very rich physics. Unconventional ground states and magnetic properties have recently been found in 5d 5 oxide compounds such as Ba2IrO4, which requires a revision of standard concepts in superexchange theory.

  • Dissipative and Dispersive Optomechanics in a Nanocavity Torque Sensor

    • Authors: Marcelo Wu; Aaron C. Hryciw, Chris Healey, David P. Lake, Harishankar Jayakumar, Mark R. Freeman, John P. Davis, Paul E. Barclay

      Abstract: Author(s): Marcelo Wu, Aaron C. Hryciw, Chris Healey, David P. Lake, Harishankar Jayakumar, Mark R. Freeman, John P. Davis, and Paul E. Barclay Sensors in optical cavities can be used for measuring acceleration, fields, and particles. New research reveals a record sensitivity for detecting small amounts of torque within optical cavities, useful for detecting magnetic fields. Creative Commons [Phys. Rev.

  • Hard-Rod Behavior in Dense Mesophases of Semiflexible and Rigid Charged
           Viruses

    • Authors: Eric Grelet
      First page: 021053
      Abstract: Author(s): Eric Grelet New results show that filamentous viruses behave mainly like hard rods, providing a simple way, based on entropy alone, of modeling the thermodynamics and self-organization behavior of more complex condensed matter systems.
