Authors: Jamadi, O.; Real, B.; Sawicki, K.; Hainaut, C.; Gonzalez-Tudela, A.; Pernet, N.; Sagnes, I; Morassi, M.; Lemaitre, A.; Le Gratiet, L.; Harouri, A.; Ravets, S.; Bloch, J.; Amo, A.

DOI: 10.1364/OPTICA.452624

Abstract: The engineering of localized modes in photonic structures is one of the main targets of modern photonics. An efficient strategy to design these modes is to use the interplay of constructive and destructive interference in periodic photonic lattices. This mechanism is at the origin of the defect modes in photonic bandgaps, bound states […]

Authors: Cernicharo, J.; Fuentetaja, R.; Cabezas, C.; Agundez, M.; Marcelino, N.; Tercero, B.; Pardo, J. R.; de Vicente, P.


Publication date: 2022/07/20

DOI: 10.1051/0004-6361/202244255

Abstract: We report the discovery of five cyano derivatives of propene towards TMC-1 with the QUIJOTE line survey: trans and cis-crotononitrile (t-CH3CHCHCN, c-CH3CHCHCN), methacrylonitrile (CH2C(CH3)CN), and gauche and cis-allyl cyanide (g-CH2CHCH2CN and c-CH2CHCH2CN). The observed transitions allowed us to derive a common rotational temperature of 7 +/- 1 K for all them. The derived column densities are N(t-CH3CHCHCN) = (5 +/- 0.5) x […]

First detection of AIF line emission towards M-type AGB stars

Authors: Saberi, M.; Khouri, T.; Velilla-Prieto, L.; Fonfria, J. P.; Vlemmings, W. H. T.; Wedemeyer, S.


Publication date: 2022/07/13

DOI: 10.1051/0004-6361/202141704

Abstract: The nucleosynthesis production of fluorine (F) is still a matter of debate. Asymptotic giant branch (AGB) stars are one of the main candidates for F production. However, their contribution to the total F budget is not fully known due to the lack of observations. In this paper, we report the detection of aluminium monofluoride (AlF) line emission, one of the two main carriers of F […]

The rotational quantum numbers range from J(u) […]

Exceptional spectral phase in a dissipative collective spin model

Authors: Rubio-Garcia, Alvaro; Corps, Angel L.; Relano, Armando; Molina, Rafael A.; Perez-Bernal, Francisco; Enrique Garcia-Ramos, Jose; Dukelsky, Jorge


Publication date: 2022/07/07

DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevA.106.L010201

Abstract: We study a model of a quantum collective spin weakly coupled to a spin-polarized Markovian environment and find that the spectrum is divided into two regions that we name normal and exceptional Liouvillian spectral phases. In the thermodynamic limit, the exceptional spectral phase displays the unique property of being made up exclusively of second-order exceptional points. As a consequence, the evolution of any […]

Surface diffusion within the Caldeira-Leggett formalism

Authors: Torres-Miyares, E. E.; Rojas-Lorenzo, G.; Rubayo-Soneira, J.; Miret-Artes, S.


Publication date: 2022/07/06

DOI: 10.1039/d2cp01579j

Abstract: Surface diffusion is described in terms of the intermediate scattering function in the time domain and reciprocal space. Two extreme time regimes are analyzed, ballistic (very short times) and Brownian or diffusive (very long times). This open dynamics is studied from the master equation for the reduced density matrix within the Caldeira-Leggett formalism. Several characteristic magnitudes in this decoherence process such as the coherence length, ensemble width and purity of […]

Topology detection in cavity QED

Authors: Perez-Gonzalez, Beatriz; Gomez-Leon, Alvaro; Platero, Gloria


Publication date: 2022/07/06

DOI: 10.1039/d2cp01806c

Abstract: We explore the physics of topological lattice models immersed in c-QED architectures for arbitrary coupling strength with the photon field. We propose the use of the cavity transmission as a topological marker and study its behaviour. For this, we develop an approach combining the input-output formalism with a Mean-Field plus fluctuations description of the setup. We illustrate our results with the specific case of a fermionic Su-Schrieffer-Heeger (SSH) chain coupled to a single-mode […]

Molecular hydrogen isotope separation by a graphdiyne membrane: a quantum-mechanical study

Authors: Garcia-Arroyo, Esther; Campos-Martinez, Jose; Bartolomei, Massimiliano; Pirani, Fernando; Hernandez, Marta I.


Publication date: 2022/07/06

DOI: 10.1039/d2cp01044e

Abstract: Graphdiyne (GDY) has emerged as a very promising two-dimensional (2D) membrane for gas separation technologies. One of the most challenging goals is the separation of deuterium (D-2) and tritium (T-2) from a mixture with the most abundant hydrogen isotope, H-2, an achievement that would be of great value for a number of industrial and scientific applications. In this work we study the separation of hydrogen isotopes in their […]

Publication date: 2022/07/01

DOI: 10.1051/0004-6361/202244063

Abstract: Cyclic C5H (c-C5H), the radical formed by substituting an ethynyl group CCH for the hydrogen atom in the c-C3H radical, has been detected for the first time in the space. The c-C5H species is an isomer of the well-known linear radical l-C5H and is similar to 6 kcal mol(-1) less stable. A total of 17 rotational transitions were detected for […]

Bound Electron Enhanced Radiosensitisation of Nimorazole upon Charge Transfer

Authors: Kumar, Sarvesh; Ben Chouikha, Islem; Kerkeni, Boutheina; Garcia, Gustavo; Limao-Vieira, Paulo


Publication date: 2022/07/01

DOI: 10.3390/molecules27134134

Abstract: This novel work reports nimorazole (NIMO) radiosensitizer reduction upon electron transfer in collisions with neutral potassium (K) atoms in the lab frame energy range of 10-400 eV. The negative ions formed in this energy range were time-of-flight mass analyzed and branching ratios were obtained. Assignment of different anions showed that more than 80% was due to the formation of the non-dissociated parent anion NIMO center dot- at 226 u and nitrogen […]

Complete Physical Characterization of Quantum Nondemolition Measurements via Tomography

Authors: Pereira, L.; Garcia-Ripoll, J. J.; Ramos, And T.


Publication date: 2022/06/29

DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevLett.129.010402

Abstract: We introduce a self-consistent tomography for arbitrary quantum nondemolition (QND) detectors. Based on this, we build a complete physical characterization of the detector, including the measurement processes and a quantification of the fidelity, ideality, and backaction of the measurement. This framework is a diagnostic tool for the dynamics of QND detectors, allowing us to identify errors, and to improve their calibration and design. We illustrate this on a realistic Jaynes-Cummings simulation of […]

Critical quantum metrology with fully-connected models: from Heisenberg to Kibble-Zurek scaling

Authors: Garbe, Louis; Abah, Obinna; Felicetti, Simone; Puebla, Ricardo


Publication date: 2022/06/15

DOI: 10.1088/2058-9565/ac6ca5

Abstract: Phase transitions represent a compelling tool for classical and quantum sensing applications. It has been demonstrated that quantum sensors can in principle saturate the Heisenberg scaling, the ultimate precision bound allowed by quantum mechanics, in the limit of large probe number and long measurement time. Due to the critical slowing down, the protocol duration time is of utmost relevance in critical quantum metrology. However, how the long-time limit is reached remains […]

Dispersive Readout of Molecular Spin Qudits

Authors: Gomez-Leon, Alvaro; Luis, Fernando; Zueco, David


Publication date: 2022/06/14

DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevApplied.17.064030

Abstract: We study the physics of a magnetic molecule described by a ???giant??? spin with multiple (d > 2) spin states interacting with the quantized cavity field produced by a superconducting resonator. By means of the input-output formalism, we derive an expression for the output modes in the dispersive regime of operation. It includes the effect of magnetic anisotropy, which makes different spin transitions addressable. We find that the measurement of the cavity transmission allows […]
