The Noise of Gravitons

Kavli Affiliate: Frank Wilczek | First 5 Authors: Maulik Parikh, Frank Wilczek, George Zahariade, , | Summary: We show that when the gravitational field is treated quantum-mechanically, it induces fluctuations — noise — in the lengths of the arms of gravitational wave detectors. The characteristics of the noise depend on the quantum state of the […]

Muons in supernovae: implications for the axion-muon coupling

Kavli Affiliate: Peter W. Graham | First 5 Authors: Robert Bollig, William DeRocco, Peter W. Graham, Hans-Thomas Janka, | Summary: The high temperature and electron degeneracy attained during a supernova allow for the formation of a large muon abundance within the core of the resulting proto-neutron star. If new pseudoscalar degrees of freedom have large […]

Spectral and spatial isolation of single WSe$_2$ quantum emitters using hexagonal boron nitride wrinkles

Kavli Affiliate: Gregory D. Fuchs | First 5 Authors: Raphaël S. Daveau, Tom Vandekerckhove, Arunabh Mukherjee, Zefang Wang, Jie Shan | Summary: Monolayer WSe$_2$ hosts bright single-photon emitters. Because of its compliance, monolayer WSe$_2$ conforms to patterned substrates without breaking, thus creating the potential for large local strain, which is one activation mechanism of its […]
