Adiabatic soliton laser
http://journals.aps.org/prl/accepted/ba073Y74K1d1a94991bd20a2b1ba87fafe5d9fe35
The key to generating stable optical pulses is mastery of nonlinear light dynamics in laser resonators. Modern techniques to control the buildup of laser pulses are based on nonlinear science and include classical solitons, dissipative solitons, parabolic pulses (similaritons) and various modificat...

Multibeam seeded Brillouin sidescatter in inertial confinement fusion experiments
http://journals.aps.org/prl/accepted/d107aYc2N9919a40d4168ab6fdb2e71442de2b120
We present the first observations of multibeam weakly seeded Brillouin sidescatter in indirectdrive inertial confinement fusion (ICF) experiments. Two seeding mechanisms have been identified and quantified: specular reflections (``glint'') from opposite hemisphere beams, and Brillouin backscatter ...

Cavity cooling a single charged levitated nanosphere
http://journals.aps.org/prl/accepted/2f07fY38Mc919d48064a5f3142d6d3e8dc356f24c
Optomechanical cavity cooling of levitated objects offers the possibility for laboratory investigation of the macroscopic quantum behavior of systems which are largely decoupled from their environment. However, experimental progress has been hindered by particle loss mechanisms which has prevented l...

Phasemodulated decoupling and error suppression in qubitoscillator systems
http://journals.aps.org/prl/accepted/f9076Y88I491414c503027e6207263b3cd39fefb5
We present a scheme designed to suppress the dominant source of infidelity in entangling gates between quantum systems coupled through intermediate bosonic oscillator modes. Such systems are particularly susceptible to residual qubitoscillator entanglement at the conclusion of a gate period which r...

A metastable phase FeSi2 was epitaxially stabilized on silicon substrate using pulsed laser deposition. Nonmetallic and ferromagnetic behaviors were tailored on FeSi2 (111) thin films, while the bulk material of FeSi2 is metallic and nonmagnetic. The transport property of the films renders two di...

Scaling and regeneration of selforganized patterns
http://journals.aps.org/prl/accepted/7b07eY8aLa013d46000a0234de845ba2cb953d89b
Biological patterns generated during development and regeneration often scale with organism size. Some organisms e.g.~flatworms can regenerate a rescaled body plan from tissue fragments of varying sizes. Inspired by these examples, we introduce a generalization of Turing patterns that is selforgan...

Emergent rhombus tilings from molecular interactions with $M$fold rotational symmetry
http://journals.aps.org/prl/accepted/4107fY3bL5913c42c2671da59e32c658e49e2eb74
We show that model molecules with particular rotational symmetries can selfassemble into network structures equivalent to rhombus tilings. This assembly happens in an emergent way, in the sense that molecules spontaneously select irregular 4fold local coordination from a larger set of possible loc...

Local hidden variable models for entangled quantum states using finite shared randomness

The statistics of local measurements performed on certain entangled states can be reproduced using a local hidden variable (LHV) model. While all known models make use of an infinite amount of shared randomness, we show that essentially all entangled states admitting a LHV model can be simulated wit...

The quark gluon plasma produced in ultrarelativistic heavyion collisions exhibits remarkable features. It behaves like a nearly perfect liquid with a small shear viscosity to entropy density ratio and leads to the quenching of highly energetic particles. We show that both effects can be understood...
