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 […]
