Understanding binary phase separation towards Cu-C nanocrystalline-amorphous composites

Kavli Affiliate: Wei Gao | First 5 Authors: [#item_custom_name[1]], [#item_custom_name[2]], [#item_custom_name[3]], [#item_custom_name[4]], [#item_custom_name[5]] | Summary: The nanocrystalline-amorphous textures are commonly observed in the coatings synthesized by energetic deposition. We report a binary phase separation towards Cu-C nanocrystalline-amorphous composites by the FCVA deposition. The experimental results highlight that the average size of Cu nanocrystallines mainly depends […]

The gate-tunable Josephson diode

Kavli Affiliate: L. P. Kouwenhoven | First 5 Authors: [#item_custom_name[1]], [#item_custom_name[2]], [#item_custom_name[3]], [#item_custom_name[4]], [#item_custom_name[5]] | Summary: Superconducting diodes are a recently-discovered quantum analogueue of classical diodes. The superconducting diode effect relies on the breaking of both time-reversal and inversion symmetry. As a result, the critical current of a superconductor can become dependent on the direction […]

Imaging gate-induced molecular melting on a graphene field-effect transistor

Kavli Affiliate: Alex Zettl | First 5 Authors: [#item_custom_name[1]], [#item_custom_name[2]], [#item_custom_name[3]], [#item_custom_name[4]], [#item_custom_name[5]] | Summary: Solid-liquid phase transitions are fundamental physical processes, but atomically-resolved microscopy has yet to capture both the solid and liquid dynamics for such a transition. We have developed a new technique for controlling the melting and freezing of 2D molecular layers […]

Silicon anisotropy in a bi-dimensional optomechanical cavity

Kavli Affiliate: Simon Groblacher | First 5 Authors: [#item_custom_name[1]], [#item_custom_name[2]], [#item_custom_name[3]], [#item_custom_name[4]], [#item_custom_name[5]] | Summary: In this work, we study the effects of mechanical anisotropy in a 2D optomechanical crystal geometry. We fabricate and measure devices with different orientations, showing the dependence of the mechanical spectrum and the optomechanical coupling with the relative angle of […]

Self-regulating surfaces for efficient liquid collection

Kavli Affiliate: Joanna Aizenberg | First 5 Authors: [#item_custom_name[1]], [#item_custom_name[2]], [#item_custom_name[3]], [#item_custom_name[4]], [#item_custom_name[5]] | Summary: To achieve efficient liquid collection, a surface must regulate incoming liquid accumulation with outgoing liquid transport. Often, this can be proposed to be achieved by functionalizing surfaces with non-wetting characteristics. Yet, there remain fundamental, practical limits to which non-wetting surfaces […]

Programmable Heisenberg interactions between Floquet qubits

Kavli Affiliate: Irfan Siddiqi | First 5 Authors: [#item_custom_name[1]], [#item_custom_name[2]], [#item_custom_name[3]], [#item_custom_name[4]], [#item_custom_name[5]] | Summary: The fundamental trade-off between robustness and tunability is a central challenge in the pursuit of quantum simulation and fault-tolerant quantum computation. In particular, many emerging quantum architectures are designed to achieve high coherence at the expense of having fixed spectra […]
