SELFCONSISTENT CURRENT-VOLTAGE CHARACTERISTICS OF NORMAL-SUPERCONDUCTOR INTERFACESApr 27 1995We study the nonlinear transport properties of NS (normal-superconductor) and NSN structures by means of a self-consistent microscopic description. A nonzero superfluid velocity causes the various quasiparticle channels within S to open at different voltages. ... More

Observation of antiphase coherent phonons in the warped Dirac cone of Bi$_2$Te$_3$Oct 11 2016In this Rapid Communication we investigate the coupling between excited electrons and phonons in the highly anisotropic electronic structure of the prototypical topological insulator Bi$_2$Te$_3$. Using time- and angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy ... More

Origin of multistate resistive switching in Ti/manganite/Si$O_x$/Si heterostructuresNov 04 2016We report on the growth and characterization of Ti/$La_{1/3}$$Ca_{2/3}$Mn$O_3$/Si$O_x$/n-Si memristive devices. We demonstrate that using current as electrical stimulus unveils an intermediate resistance state, in addition to the usual high and low resistance ... More

The Relevance of the Preparation Concept in the Interpretation of Quantum FormalismMar 04 2013Apr 22 2013The preparation procedure, an undefined notion in quantum theory, has not had the relevance that it deserves in the interpretation of quantum mechanical formalism. Here we utilize the concepts of identical and similar preparation procedures to show the ... More

A simple approach to the quantum theory of nonlinear fiber opticsFeb 01 2019We put forth an approach to obtain a quantum master equation for the propagation of light in nonlinear fiber optics by relying on simple quantum pictures of the processes (linear and nonlinear) occurring along propagation in an optical fiber. This equation ... More

Magnetization Reversal by Electric-Field Decoupling of Magnetic and Ferroelectric Domains Walls in Multiferroic-Based HeterostructuresSep 04 2010We demonstrate that the magnetization of a ferromagnet in contact with an antiferromagnetic multiferroic (LuMnO3) can be speedily reversed by electric field pulsing, and the sign of the magnetic exchange bias can switch and recover isothermally. As LuMnO3 ... More
