    Teperik, Tatiana V.; Nordlander, Peter; Aizpurua, Javier; Borisov, Andrei G. (2013)

  • Quantum jumps via spontaneous Raman scattering 

    Hulet, Randall G.; Wineland, D.J. (1987)
    A single laser, which is used to induce and detect spontaneous Raman transitions, can be used to observe quantum jumps in a single atom. The population dynamics of a particular system, consisting of two S1/22 ground-state ...

    Song, Peng; Meng, Sheng; Nordlander, Peter; Gao, Shiwu (2012)
    We investigate photoinduced electron transport through nanoparticle dimers connected by linear and ringlike molecules. The two model junctions exhibit similar absorption but distinct photoconductance. The linear-chain junction ...
  • Radiative Decay Rates in Hg+ from Observations of Quantum Jumps in a Single Ion 

    Itano, Wayne M.; Bergquist, J.C.; Hulet, Randall G.; Wineland, D.J. (1987)
    Radiative decay rates connecting the lowest four energy levels of Hg+198 have been derived solely from an analysis of the fluctuations (quantum jumps) of the laser-induced fluorescence of the 194-nm first resonance transition ...
  • Radiative lifetime of the 2P state of lithium 

    McAlexander, W.I.; Abraham, E.R.I.; Hulet, R.G. (1996)
    We determine the radial dipole moment between the 2S and 2P states of atomic lithium by analyzing the long-range vibrational eigenenergies of the singly excited diatomic molecule. The result can be expressed in terms of ...
  • RCM-E simulation of bimodal transport in the plasma sheet 

    Yang, Jian; Wolf, Richard A.; Toffoletto, Frank R.; Sazykin, Stanislav; Wang, Chih-Ping (2014)
    Plasma sheet transport is bimodal, consisting of both large-scale adiabatic convection and intermittent bursty flows in both earthward and tailward directions. We present two comparison simulations with the Rice Convection ...
  • Realization of a measurement of a ‘‘weak value’’ 

    Ritchie, N.W.M.; Story, J.G.; Hulet, Randall G. (1991)
    We present the first realization of a measurement of a ‘‘weak value,’’ a concept recently introduced by Aharonov, Albert, and Vaidman (AAV). Our experiment uses a birefringent crystal to separate the two linear-polarization ...
  • Renormalized energies of superfluorescent bursts from an electron-hole magnetoplasma with high gain in InxGa1−xAs quantum wells

    We study light emission properties of a population-inverted 2D electron-hole plasma in a quantizing magnetic field. We observe a series of superfluorescent (SF) bursts, discrete both in time and energy, corresponding ...
  • Robust Helical Edge Transport in Gated InAs/GaSb Bilayers 

    Du, Lingjie; Knez, Ivan; Sullivan, Gerard; Du, Rui-Rui (2015)
    We have engineered electron-hole bilayers of inverted InAs/GaSb quantum wells, using dilute silicon impurity doping to suppress residual bulk conductance. We have observed robust helical edge states with wide conductance ...
  • Robust Subnanometric Plasmon Ruler by Rescaling of the Nonlocal Optical Response 

    Teperik, T.V.; Nordlander, P.; Aizpurua, J.; Borisov, A.G. (2013)
    We present the optical response of two interacting metallic nanowires calculated for separation distances down to angstrom range. State-of-the-art local and nonlocal approaches are compared with full quantum time-dependent ...
  • Rydberg Atoms in "Circular" States 

    Hulet, Randall G.; Kleppner, Daniel (1983)
    The population of a beam of lithium atoms has been transferred from a low angular momentum Rydberg state to a state with |m|=n−1, with nearly 100% efficiency. Selective field ionization is employed to detect the high |m| ...
  • Scanning-Ion Microscopy with Polarization Analysis (Simpa) 

    Zheng, N.J.; Rau, C. (1993)
    We have developed a novel, high-resolution magnetic imaging technique, scanning-ion microscopy with polarization analysis (SIMP A). In SIMP A, a highly-focused, scanning Ga+ ion beam is used to excite spin-polarized electrons ...
