  8. Modeling of Quantum Cascade Laser Sources with Giant Optical Nonlinearities

    07 Apr 2016 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Christian Jirauschek

    IWCE 2015 Presentation. A characteristic feature of the quantum cascade laser (QCL) is that the optical properties of the active region can be custom-tailored by quantum engineering. Recently, the possibility to integrate giant artificial optical nonlinearities has enabled various novel...

  9. Self-energies: Opening Doors for Nanotechnology

    07 Apr 2016 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Tillmann Christoph Kubis

    In this talk, it will be shown how the concept of self-energies can be used to interface all these fields into the same nanotechnology modeling framework. Self-energies are most commonly used in the quantum transport method of nonequilibrium Green’s functions (NEGF). The NEGF method is...

  11. Beyond the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle in the Negative Mass Reference Frame

    07 Apr 2016 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Eugene Polzik

    Measurements of one quadrature of an oscillator with precision beyond its vacuum state uncertainty have occupied a central place in quantum physics for decades. A squeezed state of one of the quadratures is a prominent example of a state which provides such precision. One of the first proposals...

  13. The Effects of Gold and Silver Nanoparticles on Brine Shrimp: A Toxicology Study

    05 Apr 2016 | Teaching Materials | Contributor(s): Sharon Haldeman Mierhofer, NNCI Nano

    This lab is designed to help students understand the following: the interdisciplinary fields of science, a practical application of chemistry in the real world, and the need to carefully conduct experiments and evaluate data in a collaborative environment. In this experiment, students will...

  14. Small Scale Stenciling: Mask Lab

    05 Apr 2016 | Teaching Materials | Contributor(s): Marilyn Garza

    This lab is analogous with some nanofabrication processes. This lab will help students understand some of the challenges encountered while making semiconductor chips and waveguides, both of which are found in electronic circuits.  The content is appropriate for students in middle school or...

  15. Learning about Surface Area and Volume Using "Spaghetti and Meatballs for All!"

    05 Apr 2016 | Teaching Materials | Contributor(s): Joyce Allen

    The purpose of this lesson is to help students extend their knowledge of area, perimeter, and volume to include surface area.  The understanding of these concepts begin in the elementary grades and helps students understand events such as why a hot potato cools down quicker when it is...

  16. Quantum Memory for Enhanced Sensing and Photon Storage and Correlation

    05 Apr 2016 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Jörg Wrachtrup

    The talk will describe the use of nuclear spin quantum memories in diamond defect centers for sensing and quantum repeater applications.

  17. Quantum Error Correction for Metrology

    05 Apr 2016 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Fedor Jelezko

    I will discuss recent developments transforming quantum control tools into quantum technologies based on single nitrogen-vacancy (NV) centers in diamond. I will present ultrasensitive MRI at nanoscale and recently developed magnetometry protocols that use quantum error correction as a resource....

  18. VIRTUAL PHOTONS: From Lamb’s shift to Dicke’s superradiance

    05 Apr 2016 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Marlan O. Scully, Dawei Wang

    The effects of virtual photons are very real. The Lamb shift and Unruh radiation are examples. It may even be possible to make real advances from virtual processes in solar cells. The three main topics to be covered are: The Lamb Shift Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow; Unruh Radiation is a...

  20. Photons as 'Glue' for Dissimilar Quantum Systems

    12 Apr 2016 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Oliver Benson

    Here we report on different photon sources, which could be part of a quantum hybrid architecture or which could provide the‘glue’for dissimilar quantum systems.The talk concerns on the one hand the integration of stable emitters as reliable sources and on the other hand the...
