These 46 objects comprise all objects with H magnitude < 4.0 or which have received a name from the International ... More

Universal statistics of vortex linesDec 20 2011Mar 28 2012We study the vortex lines that are a feature of many random or disordered three-dimensional systems. These show universal statistical properties on long length scales, and geometrical phase transitions analogous to percolation transitions but in distinct ... More

A carrier relaxation bottleneck probed in single InGaAs quantum dots using integrated superconducting single photon detectorsJul 02 2014Aug 15 2014Using integrated superconducting single photon detectors we probe ultra-slow exciton capture and relaxation dynamics in single self-assembled InGaAs quantum dots embedded in a GaAs ridge waveguide. Time-resolved luminescence measurements performed with ... More

Electrical control of the exciton-biexciton splitting in a single self-assembled InGaAs quantum dotsSep 10 2010Jul 23 2011We report on single InGaAs quantum dots embedded in a lateral electric field device. By applying a voltage we tune the neutral exciton transition into resonance with the biexciton using the quantum confined Stark effect. The results are compared to theoretical ... More

Investigation of Non Resonant Dot - Cavity Coupling in Two Dimensional Photonic Crystal NanocavitiesFeb 14 2008We study the optical emission from single semiconductor quantum dots coupled to the optical modes of photonic crystal nanocavities. For dots that are both spectrally and spatially coupled, auto-correlation measurements reveal efficient single photon generation, ... More

All optical quantum control of a spin-quantum state and ultrafast transduction into an electric currentDec 12 2012The ability to control and exploit quantum coherence and entanglement drives research across many fields ranging from ultra-cold quantum gases to spin systems in condensed matter. Transcending different physical systems, optical approaches have proven ... More

Mechanical switching of ferro-electric rubberDec 09 2008At the A to C transition, smectic elastomers have recently been observed to undergo $\sim$35% spontaneous shear strains. We first explicitly describe how strains of up to twice this value could be mechanically or electrically induced in Sm-$C$ elastomers ... More

On the Nature of the Unique H$α$-Emitting T Dwarf 2MASS J12373919+6526148Sep 28 2006We explore and discount the hypothesis that the strong, continual H$\alpha$-emitting T dwarf 2MASS J12373919+6526148 can be explained as a young, low gravity, very low mass brown dwarf. The source is already known to have a marginally-fainter absolute ... More

Sharing Computer Network Logs for Security and Privacy: A Motivation for New Methodologies of AnonymizationSep 03 2004Logs are one of the most fundamental resources to any security professional. It is widely recognized by the government and industry that it is both beneficial and desirable to share logs for the purpose of security research. However, the sharing is not ... More

Twinlike models with identical linear fluctuation spectraDec 01 2011Recently, the possibility of so-called twinlike field theories has been demonstrated, that is, of different field theories which share the same topological defect solution with the same energy density. Further, purely algebraic conditions have been derived ... More

Symmetries of generalized soliton models and submodels on target space $S^2$Dec 02 2004Some physically relevant non-linear models with solitons, which have target space $S^2$, are known to have submodels with infinitly many conservation laws defined by the eikonal equation. Here we calculate all the symmetries of these models and their ... More

Convolution semigroups of statesMay 08 2009Oct 28 2009Convolution semigroups of states on a quantum group form the natural noncommutative analogue of convolution semigroups of probability measures on a locally compact group. Here we initiate a theory of weakly continuous convolution semigroups of functionals ... More

Localisation and Completion with an addendum on the use of Brown-Peterson homology in stable homotopyDec 22 2010Jan 17 2011These are notes, by Z. Fiedorowicz, from lectures given by J. Frank Adams at the University of Chicago in spring of 1973. They give an elegant axiomatic presentation of localization and completion in algebraic topology. The construction of localization ... More
