  • The A-B transition in superfluid 3He under confinement in a thin slab geometry 

    Zhelev, Nikolay; Abhilash, Thanniyil Sebastian; Smith, Eric; Bennett, Robert; Rojas, Xavier; Levitin, Lev; Saunders, John; Parpia, Jeevak (2017)
    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, ...
  • Temperature Dependence of Wavelength Selectable Zero-Phonon Emission from Single Defects in Hexagonal Boron Nitride 

    Jungwirth, Nicholas R.; Calderon, Brian; Ji, Yanxin; Spencer, Michael G.; Flatté, Michael E.; Fuchs, Gregory D. (Nano Letters, 2016-08-31)
    We investigate the distribution and temperature-dependent optical properties of sharp, zero-phonon emission from defect-based single photon sources in multilayer hexagonal boron nitride (h-BN) flakes. We observe sharp ...

  • Polarization Spectroscopy of Defect-Based Single Photon Sources in ZnO 

    Jungwirth, Nicholas R; Chang, Hung-Shen; Jiang, Mingde; Fuchs, Gregory D (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 ...
  • Observation of a new superfluid phase for ³He embedded in nematically ordered aerogel 

    Zhelev, Nikolay; Reichl, Matthew; Abhilash, Thanniyil Sebastian; Smith, Eric Nelson; Nguyen, Kayla X.-T.; Meuller, Erich J.; Parpia, Jeevak M. (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 ...
