  • Holographic Path to the Turbulent Side of Gravity
    • Authors: Stephen R. Green; Federico Carrasco, Luis Lehner
      First page: 011001
      Abstract: Author(s): Stephen R. Green, Federico Carrasco, and Luis LehnerGravity/fluid correspondence depicts the recent realization that the dynamics of the latter actually finds analogue in the former. Investigating this correspondence further, theorists now discover a counterpart of fluid turbulence in gravitationally perturbed black holes that gives rise to long-lived, large-scale ”gravitational wave tornadoes.”Selected for a Synopsis in Physics Creative Commons [Phys.

           Quantum Spin Hall Insulators
    • Authors: Hongming Weng; Xi Dai, Zhong Fang
      First page: 011002
      Abstract: Author(s): Hongming Weng, Xi Dai, and Zhong FangQuantum spin Hall (QSH) insulators, with their insulating interior and conducting edges, have great potential for technological applications. But, scarcity and difficulty in fabrication are major obstacles to their wide applications. Theorists now predict that single sheets that can be exfoliated from two well-known layered thermoelectric compounds, ZrTe5 and HfTe5, are the most promising QSH insulator candidates to date.Creative Commons [Phys.

      Abstract: Author(s): Efi Efrati and William T. M. IrvineThe handedness of an object has always been a binary concept: either left handed or right handed. Scientists now show that quantifying handedness as direction-dependent properties actually makes fundamental physical sense and can guide both our understanding of known handedness phenomena and design of materials with novel handed-response properties.Creative Commons [Phys.

      Abstract: Author(s): Michael Plaksin, Shy Shoham, and Eitan KimmelRecent discovery of neuronal stimulation by low-intensity, focused ultrasound waves has ignited high hope and research effort to develop a noninvasive way to assess and control brain activity with millimeter spatial resolution. But how does the phenomenon work?

      Abstract: Author(s): A. Yokoyama, M. Yoshida, A. Ishii, and Y. K. KatoOptical activity—the ability to rotate the polarization of light—was long thought to be only the property of organic molecules without intrinsic structural mirror symmetry. Scientists now demonstrate experimentally that single carbon nanotubes, which have internal mirror symmetry, can be externally induced to exhibit both giant optical activity and a broad range of variability.Creative Commons [Phys.

      Abstract: Author(s): Zhong Wang and Shou-Cheng ZhangTopological insulators are classified by “topological invariants” characterizing their electronic structures. Identifying and computing topological invariants for insulators in which electron-electron interactions are important is, however, difficult.

      Abstract: Author(s): M. E. Brooks-Bartlett, S. T. Banks, L. D. C. Jaubert, A. Harman-Clarke, and P. C. W. HoldsworthIn magnetic materials known as spin ice, atomic-scale magnets on certain lattice structures can behave as if they were composed of independent “monopoles.” Scientists now demonstrate that those atomic-scale magnets in concert can fragment into both monopoles and a second fluctuating magnetic moment, with the monopoles forming a crystal and the second segments forming a disordered background magnetic liquid.Creative Commons [Phys.

      Abstract: Author(s): Anatoly A. Svidzinsky, Luqi Yuan, and Marlan O.

Scientists propose a new way of amplifying light without such population inversion, based on their discovery of resonant superradiant emission from an atomic ensemble interacting with a driving light field.Creative Commons [Phys.

      Abstract: Author(s): F. Ingremeau and H. KellayVisualizing in polymeric liquid how the microscopic polymer molecules react to, and back-act on, the macroscopic liquid flow requires observations of very different scales and is obviously challenging technically. A new experiment overcomes this challenge and shows directly how the extension of individual polymer molecules are tied to the flow properties in an engineered slender thinning filaments of a flowing polymer solution.Creative Commons [Phys.

      Abstract: Author(s): Mikhail A. Kats, Romain Blanchard, Shuyan Zhang, Patrice Genevet, Changhyun Ko, Shriram Ramanathan, and Federico CapassoThermal radiation from conventional emitters, such as the warm glow of a light bulb, increases with temperature: the hotter the bulb, the more it glows. Thermal emitters that buck this trend could lead to many unconventional thermal devices. Researchers have engineered such a (meta)material by exploiting the unique structural and electronic phase changes of vanadium oxide at around 70∘C.Creative Commons [Phys. Rev.

      Abstract: Author(s): Francesco Monticone and Andrea AlùKnown metamaterial-based “invisibility cloaks” have been observed to work only for narrow ranges of electromagnetic waves, for example, making an object invisible to red light, but highly visible to blue light. With a comprehensive and quantitative theoretical analysis, researchers now provide a concrete understanding of the observations and also propose a design for broadband cloaks using diamagnetic or superconducting thin cloaking layers.Creative Commons [Phys.

      Abstract: Author(s): Jonathan H. Prechtel, Andreas V. Kuhlmann, Julien Houel, Lukas Greuter, Arne Ludwig, Dirk Reuter, Andreas D. Wieck, and Richard J. WarburtonSingle-photon sources required for quantum communication and computation are commonly based on semiconductor quantum dots; however, charge fluctuations in the semiconductor lead to unwanted variations in the “color” (wavelength) of the emitted photons. Scientists use a hybrid system of a quantum dot and a constant-wavelength laser to measure and then cancel out fluctuations in the wavelength, generating a perfect stream of single photons of one color.Creative Commons [Phys.

However, positing diffusion of calcium ions and inorganic carbon-based molecules in microbial mats and their diffusion-limited precipitation as the primary growth mechanisms, a mathematical model not only successfully predicts the conical shape but also concludes that the thickness of the ancient microbial mats was similar to that of modern-day mats.Selected for a Synopsis in Physics Creative Commons [Phys.

      Abstract: Author(s): Kevin C. Young, Mohan Sarovar, and Robin Blume-KohoutAdiabatic quantum computing (AQC) has intrinsic robustness to noise, but whether it’s fault-tolerant—robust to all forms of noise—has not been explored. While fault tolerance through error correction is theoretically achievable in standard quantum computing, scientists show that it may not be achievable in AQC.Creative Commons [Phys. Rev.

      Abstract: Author(s): José A. Cuesta, Niurka R. Quintero, and Renato Alvarez-NodarseRocking ratchets are utilized in many different systems to create a directed current of energy or material and much of their behavior is universal across the systems. Scientists discover the time-shift invariance of the ratchet current to be the origin of the universality and based on this insight build a unified theory for rocking ratchets that can guide and interpret future research and applications.Creative Commons [Phys.

      Abstract: Author(s): Bryan Nelsen, Gangqiang Liu, Mark Steger, David W. Snoke, Ryan Balili, Ken West, and Loren PfeifferExciton polaritons are essentially photons “dressed” by and interacting via their interaction with excitons in a semiconductor. As bosons, they exhibit Bose-Einstein condensation, in which they self-organize into a coherent state. Scientists have now extended their lifetime from 10 to 100 picoseconds and have observed a number of dramatic new effects, including a new and dynamic coherent state of spatially localized polaritons at high densities.Creative Commons [Phys.

      First page: 041016
      Abstract: Author(s): Lukasz Fidkowski, Xie Chen, and Ashvin VishwanathThe surface electronic structure of a three-dimensional topological superconductor is characterized by a Majorana cone—Majorana-fermion-like electronic excitations whose energies form a gapless continuum, rendering the surface conducting. It was believed that a gap in that electronic structure could only be created if time-reversal symmetry were broken. Theorists now show that, in the presence of strong electronic interaction, “gapping” and time-reversal symmetry can coexist if the surface has a special type of electronic excitations that are “anyons.”Creative Commons [Phys.

      Abstract: Author(s): Torsten Karzig, Gil Refael, and Felix von OppenRealization of Majorana fermions in solid-state systems offers a promising candidate for qubits in fault-tolerant quantum computing. How fast such qubits can be manipulated without loss in their quantum coherence motivates the need to understand the dynamics of solid-state Majorana fermions. Scientists discover that the dynamics is actually described by an effective variation of the original Dirac equation for the simpler relativistic free Majorana fermions and establish the speed limit for basic qubit manipulation.Creative Commons [Phys.

      Abstract: Author(s): P. Hauke, D. Marcos, M. Dalmonte, and P. ZollerGauge theories such as quantum electrodynamics, in principle, give us a precise understanding of the interactions between subatomic particles, but often the calculations involved are beyond current computational capabilities. Quantum simulators based on experimental many-body systems could be a solution to this problem. Scientists exploit the current state-of-the-art experimental technology for manipulating cold trapped ions and propose a simulator of the one-dimensional version of quantum electrodynamics.Creative Commons [Phys.

Scientists demonstrate that a hybrid structure of a magneto-optical photonic waveguide with plasmonic (gold) nanowires significantly boosts an important effect, the so-called transverse magneto-optical Kerr effect, through resonant interaction between the waveguide photons and the plasmons.Creative Commons [Phys.

  • Thermally Activated Contact Strengthening Explains Nonmonotonic
           Temperature and Velocity Dependence of Atomic Friction
    • Authors: Mykhaylo Evstigneev; Peter Reimann
      First page: 041020
      Abstract: Author(s): Mykhaylo Evstigneev and Peter ReimannRecent experiments on friction between a moving atomic-scale tip and a smooth surface have shown that the friction has a nonmonotonic dependence on temperature and decreases with the tip’s velocity. No single theoretical model provides consistent rationalizations of all these experimental data. A new theory based on the notion of “contact aging”—a thermally activated process of the tip-surface contact strengthening—correctly predicts all these recent results.Creative Commons [Phys. Rev.

      Abstract: Author(s): Attila Szolnoki and Matjaž PercWhy do humans cooperate with other unrelated humans? Correlated use of both a “reward” and a “punishment” strategy has been thought to be an evolutionary force underlying our predisposition for cooperation: if others are kind to us, we are kind to them; if they are exploitive, we may stop cooperating or tend to punish them. Recent human experiments show, however, that individuals mostly use one strategy or the other, rarely both. Now, statistical physical simulations of an evolutionary game model lend significant support to these findings.Creative Commons [Phys. Rev. X 3, 041021] Published Wed Nov 27, 2013

But real-world networks can be “multiplex,” with multiple types of interactions and where one type of interaction can influence another. A unifying framework for describing “multiplex” networks has been missing so far. Deftly employing the concept of tensors, theorists now present such a framework that will power studies of “multiplex” networks across many scientific disciplines.Creative Commons [Phys. Rev.

      Abstract: Author(s): Luka Trifunovic, Fabio L. Pedrocchi, and Daniel LossAtomlike spin-based nitrogen-vacancy centers in diamond have emerged as a promising class of candidates for qubits in room-temperature quantum computing. Making them interact with each other in a controlled and scalable way even when they are separated over long distances is the next step. A new proposal shows that this goal can be achieved by coupling the spin qubits to a common ferromagnet and exploiting the fast traveling magnons in the ferromagnet as the agent mediating long-range qubit-qubit interactions.Creative Commons [Phys.

      Abstract: Author(s): L. Bretheau, Ç. Ö. Girit, C. Urbina, D. Esteve, and H. PothierWen two superconductors are connected through a weak link, discrete quasiparticle states localized at the link, called Andreev levels, are known to appear and leave their signatures in a “supercurrent” that flows through the link. Using microwave excitation and supercurrent measurements, scientists reveal the fundamental nature of the Andreev levels associated with a single-atom link.Creative Commons [Phys. Rev.

      Abstract: Author(s): Scott B. Papp, Pascal Del’Haye, and Scott A. Diddams“Microcombs,” frequency combs based on optical microcavities, are small in size and low in power consumption. They are seen as a very attractive alternative to traditional optical frequency combs based on tabletop lasers. Now, experimentalists advance the development of microcombs in two important ways: simplifying and speeding up their fabrication to just under one minute and stabilizing their frequency spacing with a precision of 5×10-15 by controlling cavity modes with mechanical strain.Creative Commons [Phys.

      Abstract: Author(s): Charles Ci Wen Lim, Christopher Portmann, Marco Tomamichel, Renato Renner, and Nicolas GisinExisting protocols for device-independent quantum key distribution solve the problem of inadvertently flawed devices, but still rely on two-party Bell tests across almost lossless quantum channels that are hard to realize over long distances. Now theorists propose a new device-independent protocol that allows Bell testing to be carried out by only one party, potentially enabling long-distance key distributions.Creative Commons [Phys. Rev.

A new proof—with the only assumption that the eavesdropper does not have a long-term quantum memory—tolerates realistic noise levels, uses only two devices, and broadens the security certification to the test of any Bell inequality.Creative Commons [Phys.

      Abstract: Author(s): Filip Strubbe, Filip Beunis, Toon Brans, Masoumeh Karvar, Wouter Woestenborghs, and Kristiaan NeytsThe fundamental principle for electrophoresis, the motion of a charged particle in solution driven by an applied electric field, is well understood. But experimental measurements of the electrophoretic retardation force, one of those responsible for electrophoresis, have been scarce and equivocal. Now a Belgian group develops a creative new approach to control the source of the retardation—the counterion cloud surrounding the charged particle—by gradual depletion and makes unambiguous measurement of the retardation force.Selected for a Synopsis in Physics Creative Commons [Phys.

      Abstract: Author(s): Moira L. Steyn-Ross, D. A. Steyn-Ross, and J. W. SleighSlow oscillations in neuronal activity in the human brain are the defining feature of scalp-measured electroencephalography taken under general anesthesia. A theoretical investigation of a model for the human cortex reveals that slow spatiotemporal patterns emerge spontaneously as the result of a chemically modified balancing act between two instabilities in cortical dynamics—one to spatial organizations and the other to temporal bifurcation. Long-range interneuronal communication across the cortex is shown to be crucial to the pattern formation.Creative Commons [Phys. Rev. X 3, 021005] Published Thu May 09, 2013

Does such a vocabulary grow forever? From large text databases, such as the Google Ngram, that have become available only recently, researchers tease out new and systematic insights into these fundamental questions and develop a mathematical model with predictive power that describes vocabulary growth as a simple stochastic process.Creative Commons [Phys.

In YBa2Cu3Oy, an important cuprate with distorted CuO2 planes, the electronic phase is characterized by charge density-wave order. New measurements indicate that charge density-wave order is also present in HgBa2CuO4+δ, a cuprate with undistorted CuO2 planes, suggesting that the charge order is a generic property of cuprates.Creative Commons [Phys.

  • Using Nonequilibrium Fluctuation Theorems to Understand and Correct Errors
           in Equilibrium and Nonequilibrium Simulations of Discrete Langevin
           Dynamics
    • Authors: David A. Sivak; John D. Chodera, Gavin E. Crooks
      First page: 011007
      Abstract: Author(s): David A. Sivak, John D. Chodera, and Gavin E. CrooksSlicing continuous time into discrete segments is necessary in computer simulations, but inevitably introduces artifacts. Drawing on the recent development in nonequilibrium statistical mechanics, researchers at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory have learned a new way to systematically characterize and separate the artifacts in simulations of molecular dynamics.Creative Commons [Phys.

      Abstract: Author(s): Han Wang, Carsten Hartmann, Christof Schütte, and Luigi Delle SiteMany interesting and important systems in natural science, such as that of a large protein molecule in water, show regions of different molecular activities and therefore of different interest to the investigator. A new method of molecular dynamics simulations now allows the simulator to zoom in and out of the region(s) of interest “on the fly” with computational ease and high efficiency and brings simulations of such systems into the realm of computational capability.Creative Commons [Phys.
