Tuning the Spin Interaction in Non-planar Organic Diradicals Through Mechanical Manipulation

Kavli Affiliate: Herre S. J. Van Der Zant | First 5 Authors: Alessio Vegliante, Saleta Fernandez, Ricardo Ortiz, Manuel Vilas-Varela, Thomas Baum | Summary: Open-shell polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) represent promising building blocks for carbon-based functional magnetic materials. Their magnetic properties stem from the presence of unpaired electrons localized in radical states of $pi$ character. […]

Flux-tunable Kitaev chain in a quantum dot array

Kavli Affiliate: Michael Wimmer | First 5 Authors: Juan Daniel Torres Luna, A. Mert Bozkurt, Michael Wimmer, Chun-Xiao Liu, | Summary: Connecting quantum dots through Andreev bound states in a semiconductor-superconductor hybrid provides a platform to create a Kitaev chain. Interestingly, in a double quantum dot, a pair of poor man’s Majorana zero modes can […]

Realization of Wess-Zumino-Witten transitions with levels $k=6$ and $k=4$ in a frustrated spin-3 chain

Kavli Affiliate: Natalia Chepiga | First 5 Authors: Natalia Chepiga, , , , | Summary: We study dimerization transitions in a frustrated spin-3 chain with next-nearest neighbor and three-site interactions. We show that two independent coupling constants of the model are sufficient to fine-tune the system to the critical point in the Wess-Zumino-Witten SU(2)$_6$ universality […]

Continuously Distributing Entanglement in Quantum Networks with Regular Topologies

Kavli Affiliate: Stephanie Wehner | First 5 Authors: Lars Talsma, Álvaro G. Iñesta, Stephanie Wehner, , | Summary: Small interconnected quantum processors can collaborate to tackle quantum computational problems that typically demand more capable devices. These linked processors, referred to as quantum nodes, can use shared entangled states to execute nonlocal operations. As a consequence, […]

Cell spheroid viscoelasticity is deformation-dependent

Kavli Affiliate: Gijsje H. Koenderink | First 5 Authors: Ruben C. Boot, Anouk van der Net, Christos Gogou, Pranav Mehta, Dimphna H. Meijer | Summary: Tissue surface tension influences cell sorting and tissue fusion. Earlier mechanical studies suggest that multicellular spheroids actively reinforce their surface tension with applied force. Here we study this open question […]
