26 Gondolo, PaoloSimple renormalizable flavor symmetry for neutrino oscillationsThe recent measurement of a nonzero neutrino mixing angle θ13 requires a modification of the tri-bimaximal mixing pattern that predicts a zero value for it. We propose a new neutrino mixing pattern based on a spontaneously broken A4 flavor symmetry and a type-I seesaw mechanism. Our model allows fo...2012-01-01
27 Mattis, Daniel C.PrefaceIt was the early 1960s. Elliott H. Lieb and the present author were colleagues at the IBM Research Laboratories in Yorktown Heights, occupying neighboring cubicles. We collaborated in the study, creation and solution of mathematical models of many-body phenomena. In the course of this work we ultima...2012-01-01
28 Symko, Orest GeorgeUltrasonic thermoacoustic energy converterThermoacoustic prime movers have been developed for operation in the low ultrasonic frequency range by scaling down the device size. The developed engines operate at frequencies up to 23 kHz. They are self-sustained oscillators whose dimensions scale inversely with operating frequency. The smallest ...2012-01-01
29 Wu, Yong-ShiEmergent exclusion statistics of quasiparticles in two-dimensional topological phasesWe demonstrate how the generalized Pauli exclusion principle emerges for quasiparticle excitations in 2D topological phases. As an example, we examine the Levin-Wen model with the Fibonacci data (specified in the text), and construct the number operator for fluxons living on plaquettes. By numerical...2014-01-01
30 Gondolo, PaoloHalo independent comparison of direct dark matter detection dataWe extend the halo-independent method of Fox, Liu, and Weiner to include energy resolution and efficiency with arbitrary energy dependence, making it more suitable for experiments to use in pre-senting their results. Then we compare measurements and upper limits on the direct detection of low mass (...2012-01-01
31 Rogachev, AndreyMagnetic-field dependent differential capacitance of polymer diodesUsing admittance spectroscopy, we found that bipolar organic diodes based on pi-conjugated polymer, 2-methoxy-5-(20-ethylhexyloxy), MEH-PPV, have strong divergent contribution to the device differential capacitance. It is positive at low bias voltages, turns negative at intermediate biases, and beco...2012-01-01
32 Gondolo, PaoloThe effect of quark interactions on dark matter kinetic decoupling and the mass of the smallest dark halosThe kinetic decoupling of dark matter (DM) from the primordial plasma sets the size of the first and smallest DM halos. Studies of the DM kinetic decoupling have hitherto mostly neglected interactions between the DM and the quarks in the plasma. Here we illustrate their importance using two framewor...2012-01-01
33 Gerton, JordanEffect of magnetic Gd impurities on the superconducting state of amorphous Mo-Ge thin films with different thickness and morphologyWe studied the effect of magnetic doping with Gd atoms on the superconducting properties of amorphous Mo70Ge30 films. We observed that in uniform films deposited on amorphous Ge, the pair-breaking strength per impurity strongly decreases with film thickness initially and saturates at a finite value ...2012-01-01
34 Gondolo, PaoloWanted! Nuclear data for dark matter astrophysicsAstronomical observations from small galaxies to the largest scales in the universe can be consistently explained by the simple idea of dark matter. The nature of dark matter is however still unknown. Empirically it cannot be any of the known particles, and many theories postulate it as a new elemen...2014-01-01
35 Mishchenko, EugeneSpin and charge structure of the surface states in topological insulatorsWe investigate the spin and charge densities of surface states of the three-dimensional topological insulator Bi2Se3, starting from the continuum description of the material [Zhang et al., Nat. Phys. 5, 438 (2009)]. The spin structure on surfaces other than the (111) surface has additional complexit...2012-01-01
36 Dawson, KyleSubaru FOCAS spectroscopic observations of high-redshift supernovaeWe present spectra of high-redshift supernovae (SNe) that were taken with the Subaru low-resolution optical spectrograph, FOCAS. These SNe were found in SN surveys with Suprime-Cam on Subaru, the CFH12k camera on the Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope, and the Advanced Camera for Surveys on the Hubble S...2010-01-01
37 Rogachev, AndreyObservation of shot noise in phosphorescent organic light-emitting diodesWe employed a cross correlation method to study current noise in phosphorescent organic light-emitting diodes. The noise spectra revealed two frequency-dependent components. The first component displays 1/ f 1.3 dependence and correlates with the light emission of the devices. The second component i...2014-01-01
38 Lupton, John MarkProbing the electrode-polymer interface in conjugated polymer devices with surface-enhanced Raman scatteringA crucial consideration in organic devices is the role of the interface between a metal electrode and the active polymer material. Here, we use the conjugated polymer poly[2-methoxy-5-(2-ethylhexyl-oxy)-1,4-phenylene-vinylene] (MEH-PPV) with model gold and silver electrodes to perform surface-enhanc...2012-01-01
39 Bromley, Benjamin C.Predicted space motions for hypervelocity and runaway stars: proper motions and radial velocities for the GAIA EraWe predict the distinctive three dimensional space motions of hypervelocity stars (HVSs) and runaway stars moving in a realistic Galactic potential. For nearby stars with distances less than 10 kpc, unbound stars are rare; proper motions alone rarely isolate bound HVSs and runaways from indigenous h...2014-01-01
40 Gondolo, PaoloRing-like features in directional dark matter detectionWe discuss a novel dark matter signature relevant for directional detection of Weakly Interacting Massive Particles (WIMPs). For heavy enough WIMPs and low enough recoil energies, the maximum of the recoil rate is not in the direction of the average WIMP arrival direction but in a ring around it at ...2012-01-01
41 Boehme, ChristophModulation frequency dependence of continuous-wave optically/electrically detected magnetic resonanceContinuous-wave optically and electrically detected magnetic resonance spectroscopy (cwODMR/cwEDMR) allow the investigation of paramagnetic states involved in spin-dependent transitions, like recombination and transport. Although experimentally similar to conventional electron spin resonance (ESR), ...2012-01-01
42 Lupton, John MarkSlow hopping and spin dephasing of coulombically bound polaron pairs in an organic semiconductor at room temperaturePolaron pairs are intermediate electronic states that are integral to the optoelectronic conversion process in organic semiconductors. Here, we report on electrically detected spin echoes arising from direct quantum control of polaron pair spins in an organic light-emitting diode at room temperature...2012-01-01
43 Gondolo, PaoloAberration features in directional dark matter detectionThe motion of the Earth around the Sun causes an annual change in the mag-nitude and direction of the arrival velocity of dark matter particles on Earth, in a way analogous to aberration of stellar light. In directional detectors, aberration of weakly interacting massive particles (WIMPs) modulates ...2012-01-01
44 Gondolo, PaoloAxion cold dark matter in nonstandard cosmologiesWe study the parameter space of cold dark matter axions in two cosmological scenarios with nonstandard thermal histories before big bang nucleosynthesis: the low-temperature reheating (LTR) cosmology and the kination cosmology. If the Peccei-Quinn symmetry breaks during inflation, we find more allow...2010-01-01
45 Gondolo, PaoloAxion cold dark matter in view of BICEP2 resultsThe properties of axions that constitute 100% of cold dark matter (CDM) depend on the tensor-to-scalar ratio r at the end of inflation. If r ¼ 0.20 þ0.07 −0.05 as reported by the BICEP2 Collaboration, then "half" of the CDM axion parameter space is ruled out. Namely, in the context of single-fie...2014-01-01
46 Saam, BrianComment on pressure dependence of wall relaxation in polarized 3He gaseous cellsZheng et al. [Zheng, Gao, Ye, and Zhang, Phys. Rev. A 83, 061401(R) (2011)] have measured a strong linear pressure dependence of the nuclear relaxation rate of 3He in glass cells typically used to generate and/or store polarized 3He at room and cryogenic temperatures. Their interpretation is that th...2012-01-01
47 Mattis, Daniel C.Extinction of antiferromagnetism by holes in CuO2The introduction of a sufficient number of holes into antiferromagnetic planes of Cu02 in La-Cu-O and Y-Ba-Cu-O causes antiferromagnetism to disappear at a critical density xc, beyond which superconductivity occurs. We investigate two competing tendencies, which determine the dependence of xc on the...Antiferromagnets1991-08
48 Vardeny, Zeev ValentineObservation of molecular vibrations in real timeIn a recent Letter Rosker, Wise, and Tang1 have reported ultrafast optical measurements on two large dye molecules, malachite green and nile blue 690. Using the transmission-correlation technique with 40-fs light pulses, they measured photoinduced changes in optical transmission and found a resp...Molecular vibrations; Nile blue 690; Dyes1986
49 DeTar, CarletonTunneling and the spectrum of the Potts modelThe three-dimensional, three-state Potts model is studied as a paradigm for high-temperature quantum chromodynamics. In a high-statistics numerical simulation using a Swendson-Wang algorithm, we study cubic lattices of dimension as larger as 643 and measure correlation functions on long lattices of ...Potts model; Tunneling; Transfer matrix; Phase transitions1993-05
50 Vardeny, Zeev Valentine; Ehrenfreund, Eitan A.Illumination-induced metastable polaron-supporting state in poly(p-phenylene vinylene) filmsWe found an illumination-induced metastable polaron-supporting state in films of a soluble derivative of poly-p-phenylene vinylene (MEH-PPV). Pristine, nonilluminated MEH-PPV polymer films do not show longlived photogenerated polarons. Prolonged UV illumination, however, is found to induce a revers...Metastable polaron-supporting state; Poly(p-phenylene vinylene); PPV; MEH-PPV; Excitons2007-07
