(2016)The influence of confinement on the topological phases of superfluid 3He is studied using the torsional pendulum method. We focus on the phase transition between the chiral A-phase and the time-reversal-invariant B-phase, ...
(ACS Nano, 2015-11-26)Point defects in wide bandgap semiconductors are promising candidates for future applications that necessitate quantum light sources. Recently, defect-based single photon sources have been observed in ZnO that are very ...
(2016)In bulk superfluid 3He at zero magnetic field, two phases emerge with the B phase stable everywhere except at high pressures and temperatures where the A phase is favored. Aerogels with nanostructure smaller than the ...
(International Union of Crystallography, 2016-06)Small-angle X-ray scattering (SAXS) is an increasingly popular technique that provides low-resolution structural information about biological macromolecules in solution. Many of the practical limitations of the technique, ...
