Reply to Robinson and Michaud, arXiv:2002.08893

Kavli Affiliate: Noah Kurinsky | First 5 Authors: Noah Kurinsky, Daniel Baxter, Yonatan Kahn, Gordan Krnjaic, Peter Abbamonte | Summary: We respond to Robinson and Michaud’s (RM) comment (arXiv:2002.08893) on our recent preprint arXiv:2002.06937, in which we discuss recent excesses in low-threshold dark matter searches, and offer a potential unifying dark matter interpretation. We thank […]

CMB-HD: Astro2020 RFI Response

Kavli Affiliate: David Spergel | First 5 Authors: Neelima Sehgal, Simone Aiola, Yashar Akrami, Kaustuv moni Basu, Michael Boylan-Kolchin | Summary: CMB-HD is a proposed ultra-deep (0.5 uk-arcmin), high-resolution (15 arcseconds) millimeter-wave survey over half the sky that would answer many outstanding questions in both fundamental physics of the Universe and astrophysics. This survey would […]

Multi-functional volumetric meta-optics for color and polarization image sensors

Kavli Affiliate: Andrei Faraon | First 5 Authors: Philip Camayd-Muñoz, Conner Ballew, Gregory Roberts, Andrei Faraon, | Summary: Three-dimensional elements, with refractive index distribution structured at sub-wavelength scale, provide an expansive optical design space that can be harnessed for demonstrating multi-functional free-space optical devices. Here we present 3D dielectric elements, designed to be placed on […]

Fermionic minimal models

Kavli Affiliate: Yuji Tachikawa | First 5 Authors: Chang-Tse Hsieh, Yu Nakayama, Yuji Tachikawa, , | Summary: We show that there is a fermionic minimal model, i.e. a 1+1d conformal field theory which contains operators of half-integral spins in its spectrum, for each $c=1-6/m(m+1)$, $mge 3$. This generalizes the Majorana fermion for $c=1/2$, $m=3$ and […]

Efficient phase-factor evaluation in quantum signal processing

Kavli Affiliate: K. Birgitta Whaley | First 5 Authors: Yulong Dong, Xiang Meng, K. Birgitta Whaley, Lin Lin, | Summary: Quantum signal processing (QSP) is a powerful quantum algorithm to exactly implement matrix polynomials on quantum computers. Asymptotic analysis of quantum algorithms based on QSP has shown that asymptotically optimal results can in principle be […]

Dark Energy Survey Year 1 Results: Cosmological Constraints from Cluster Abundances and Weak Lensing

Kavli Affiliate: Adam Mantz | First 5 Authors: DES Collaboration, Tim Abbott, Michel Aguena, Alex Alarcon, Sahar Allam | Summary: We perform a joint analysis of the counts and weak lensing signal of redMaPPer clusters selected from the Dark Energy Survey (DES) Year 1 dataset. Our analysis uses the same shear and source photometric redshifts […]
