Necessary conditions for steerability of two qubits, from consideration of local operationsJun 11 2019EPR-steering refers to the ability of one observer to convince a distant observer that they share entanglement by making local measurements. Determining which states allow a demonstration of EPR-steering remains an open problem in general, even for the ... More

Study of Conduction Cooling Effects in Long Aspect Ratio Penning-Malmberg Micro-TrapsJul 12 2013A first order perturbation with respect to velocity has been employed to find the frictional damping force imposed on a single moving charge due to a perturbative electric field, inside a long circular cylindrical trap. We find that the electric field ... More
Prompt Electromagnetic Transients from Binary Black Hole MergersOct 05 2017Jan 16 2018Binary black hole (BBH) mergers provide a prime source for current and future interferometric GW observatories. Massive BBH mergers may often take place in plasma-rich environments, leading to the exciting possibility of a concurrent electromagnetic (EM) ... More
