Coherent transport properties of a three-terminal hybrid superconducting interferometer

Kavli Affiliate: Yu V. Nazarov | First 5 Authors: F. Vischi, M. Carrega, E. Strambini, S. D’Ambrosio, F. S. Bergeret | Summary: We present an exhaustive theoretical analysis of a double-loop Josephson proximity interferometer, as the one recently realized by Strambini et al. for the control of the Andreev spectrum via an external magnetic field. […]

Active particle dynamics beyond the jamming density

Kavli Affiliate: Timon Idema | First 5 Authors: Daniel R. McCusker, Ruben van Drongelen, Timon Idema, , | Summary: Many biological systems form colonies at high density. Passive granular systems will be jammed at such densities, yet for the survival of biological systems it is crucial that they are dynamic. We construct a phase diagram […]

First Demonstration of Electrostatic Damping of Parametric Instability at Advanced LIGO

Kavli Affiliate: Peter Fritschel | First 5 Authors: Carl Blair, Slawek Gras, Richard Abbott, Stuart Aston, Joseph Betzwieser | Summary: Interferometric gravitational wave detectors operate with high optical power in their arms in order to achieve high shot-noise limited strain sensitivity. A significant limitation to increasing the optical power is the phenomenon of three-mode parametric […]

The Holometer: An Instrument to Probe Planckian Quantum Geometry

Kavli Affiliate: Lee McCuller | First 5 Authors: Aaron Chou, Henry Glass, H. Richard Gustafson, Craig Hogan, Brittany L. Kamai | Summary: This paper describes the Fermilab Holometer, an instrument for measuring correlations of position variations over a four-dimensional volume of space-time. The apparatus consists of two co-located, but independent and isolated, 40m power-recycled Michelson […]

InSb Nanowires with Built-In GaxIn1-xSb Tunnel Barriers for Majorana Devices

Kavli Affiliate: Michael T. Wimmer | First 5 Authors: Diana Car, Sonia Conesa-Boj, Hao Zhang, Roy L. M. Op het Veld, Michiel W. A. de Moor | Summary: Majorana zero modes (MZMs), prime candidates for topological quantum bits, are detected as zero bias conductance peaks (ZBPs) in tunneling spectroscopy measurements. Implementation of a narrow and […]

MHz Gravitational Wave Constraints with Decameter Michelson Interferometers

Kavli Affiliate: Lee McCuller | First 5 Authors: Aaron S. Chou, Richard Gustafson, Craig Hogan, Brittany Kamai, Ohkyung Kwon | Summary: A new detector, the Fermilab Holometer, consists of separate yet identical 39-meter Michelson interferometers. Strain sensitivity achieved is better than $10^{-21} /{sqrt{rm{Hz}}}$ between 1 to 13 MHz from a 130-hr dataset. This measurement exceeds […]

An Open Source, FPGA-based LeKID readout for BLAST-TNG: Pre-flight Results

Kavli Affiliate: Nathan P. Lourie | First 5 Authors: Samuel Gordon, Bradley Dober, Adrian Sinclair, Samuel Rowe, Sean Bryan | Summary: We present a highly frequency multiplexed readout for large-format superconducting detector arrays intended for use in the next generation of balloon-borne and space-based sub-millimeter and far-infrared missions. We will demonstrate this technology on the […]

The contribution of Fermi-2LAC blazars to the diffuse TeV-PeV neutrino flux

Kavli Affiliate: J. C. Davis | First 5 Authors: IceCube Collaboration, M. G. Aartsen, K. Abraham, M. Ackermann, J. Adams | Summary: The recent discovery of a diffuse cosmic neutrino flux extending up to PeV energies raises the question of which astrophysical sources generate this signal. One class of extragalactic sources which may produce such […]
