    We draw a distinction between the Aharonov–Bohm phase shift and the Aharonov–Bohm effect. Although the Aharonov–Bohm phase shift occurring when an electron beam passes around a magnetic solenoid is well-verified experimentally, it is not clear whether this phase shift occurs because of classical forces or because of a topological effect occurring in the absence of classical forces as claimed by

    Synchrotron radiation of a charged particle in a constant uniform magnetic field and in the presence of the Aharonov-Bohm solenoid field is studied in the frame of the relativistic quantum theory. First, to this end exact solutions of the Klein-Gordon and Dirac equations are found. Using such solutions, all characteristics of one photon spontaneous irradiation, such as its intensity and angular distribution and polarization were calculated and analyzed. It is shown that usual spectrum of the synchrotron radiation is essentially affected by the presence of the solenoid (the Aharonov-Bohm effect). We believe that this deformation may be observed by spectroscopic methods of measurement. It is shown that

    We consider a noninteracting system of electrons on a clean one-channel Aharonov-Bohm ring that is threaded by a fluctuating magnetic flux. The flux derives from a Caldeira-Leggett bath of harmonic oscillators. We address the influence of the bath on the following properties: one- and two-particle Green's functions, dephasing, persistent current, and visibility of the Aharonov-Bohm effect in cotunneling transport through the ring. For the bath spectra considered here (including Nyquist noise of an external coil), we find no dephasing in the linear transport regime at zero temperature.

The absence of signal in carried on experiments allow us to set a modest constraint to the mass and coupling constant of these particles. Our findings open the possibility to exploit the leaking of hidden magnetic field in a different setup of experiments.

    The seminal paper of Aharonov and Bohm [Phys. Rev. 115, 485 (1959)] is at the origin of a very extensive literature in some of the more fundamental issues in physics. They claimed that electromagnetic fields can act at a distance on charged particles even if they are identically zero in the region of space where the particles propagate, that the fundamental electromagnetic quantities in quantum physics are not only the electromagnetic fields but also the circulations of the electromagnetic potentials; what gives them a real physical significance. They proposed two experiments to verify their theoretical conclusions. The magnetic Aharonov-Bohm effect, where an electron is influenced by a magnetic field that is zero in the region of space accessible to the electron, and the electric Aharonov-Bohm effect where an electron is affected by a time-dependent electric potential that is constant in the region where the electron is propagating, i.e., such that the electric field vanishes along its trajectory. The Aharonov-Bohm effects imply such a strong departure from the physical intuition coming from classical physics that it is no wonder that they remain a highly controversial issue after more than fifty years, in spite of the fact that they are discussed in most of the text books in quantum mechanics. The magnetic case has been studied extensively. The experimental issues were settled by the remarkable experiments of Tonomura et al. [Phys. Rev. Lett. 48, 1443 (1982); Phys. Rev. Lett. 56, 792 (1986)] with toroidal magnets, that gave a strong evidence of the existence of the effect, and by the recent experiment of Caprez et al. [Phys. Rev. Lett. 99, 210401 (2007)] that shows that the results of the Tonomura et al. experiments cannot be explained by the action of a force. The theoretical issues were settled by Ballesteros and Weder [Commun. Math. Phys. 285, 345 (2009); J. Math. Phys. 50, 122108 (2009); Commun. Math. Phys. 303, 175 (2011)] who rigorously proved that quantum mechanics predicts the experimental results of Tonomura et al. and of Caprez et al. The electric Aharonov-Bohm effect has been much less studied. Actually, its existence, that has not been confirmed experimentally, is a very controversial issue. In their 1959 paper Aharonov and Bohm proposed an ansatz for the solution to the Schroedinger equation in regions where there is a time-dependent electric potential that is constant in space. It consists in multiplying the free evolution by a phase given by the integral in time of the potential. The validity of this ansatz predicts interference fringes between parts of a coherent electron beam that are subjected to different potentials. In this paper we prove that the exact solution to the Schroedinger equation is given by the Aharonov-Bohm ansatz up to an error bound in norm that is uniform in time and that decays as a constant divided by the velocity. Our results give, for the first time, a rigorous proof that quantum mechanics predicts the existence of the electric Aharonov-Bohm effect, under conditions that we provide. We hope that our results will stimulate the experimental research on the electric Aharonov-Bohm effect.

    We show that when the refractive index of a photonic system is harmonically modulated, the phase of the modulation introduces an effective gauge potential for photons. This effective gauge potential can be used to create a photonic Aharonov-Bohm effect. We show that the photonic Aharonov-Bohm effect provides the optimal mechanism for achieving complete on-chip nonmagnetic optical isolation.

    The Aharonov–Bohm effect is one of the most intriguing phenomena in both classical and quantum physics, and associates with a number of important and fundamental issues in quantum mechanics. The Aharonov–Bohm effects of charged particles have been experimentally demonstrated and found applications in various fields. Recently, attention has also focused on the Aharonov–Bohm effect for neutral particles, such as photons. Here we propose to utilize the photon–phonon interactions to demonstrate that photonic Aharonov–Bohm effects do exist for photons. By introducing nonreciprocal phases for photons, we observe experimentally a gauge potential for photons in the visible range based on the photon–phonon interactions in acousto-optic crystals, and demonstrate the photonic Aharonov–Bohm effect. The results presented here point to new possibilities to control and manipulate photons by designing an effective gauge potential. PMID:24476790

    We show that the connection responsible for any Abelian or non-Abelian Aharonov Bohm effect with n parallel “magnetic” flux lines in ?3, lies in a trivial G-principal bundle P? M, i.e. P is isomorphic to the product M× G, where G is any path connected topological group; in particular a connected Lie group. We also show that two other bundles are involved: the universal covering space tilde{M}to M , where path integrals are computed, and the associated bundle P× G ? m ? M, where the wave function and its covariant derivative are sections.

    2015-05-01

    We address the question of locality versus nonlocality in the Aharonov-Bohm and the Aharonov-Casher effects. For this purpose, we investigate all possible configurations of ideal shielding of the overlap between the electromagnetic fields generated by a charge and by a magnetic flux and analyze their consequences on the Aharonov-Bohm-Casher interference. In a classical treatment of shielding, the Aharonov-Bohm-Casher effect vanishes regardless of the geometry of shielding when the local overlap of electromagnetic fields is completely eliminated. On the other hand, the result depends on the configuration of shielding if the charge quantization in the superconducting shield is taken into account. It is shown that our results are fully understood in terms of the fluctuating local-field interaction. Our analysis strongly supports the alternative view on the Aharonov-Bohm-Casher interference that the effects originate from the local action of electromagnetic fields.

In agreement with the standard Maxwell-Lorentz theory, the force acting on electrons from infinite solenoids or ferromagnetic rods vanishes. However, the interaction energies and phase factors of the electron wave packets are non-zero. This allows us to explain the Aharonov-Bohm effect without involvement of electromagnetic potentials, fields, and topological properties of space.

    We determine the |p|/m expansion of the two body scattering amplitude of the quantum theory of a Chern-Simons field minimally coupled to a scalar field with quartic self-interaction. It is shown that the existence of a critical value of the self-interaction parameter for which the 2-particle amplitude reduces to the Aharonov-Bohm one is restricted to the leading, nonrelativistic, order. The subdominant terms correspond to relativistic corrections to the Aharonov-Bohm scattering.

    Optically active media have the helical and dissymmetric crystal structure, which constrains the motions of the electrons to a helical path under the influence of the incident electric field. The charge flow along the helices induces a magnetic field in the direction of the axis of helices. The helical structure hence acts as natural micro-solenoids for the electromagnetic waves passing through them. Optical rotation is related to the difference in the accumulative Aharonov-Bohm (AB) phase between the right- and the left-circularly polarized waves. The AB phase is proportional to the angular momentum of an electron moving around the micro-solenoid. Originally the AB phase is shown to be a continuous function of the magnetic flux. However, quantization of the geometrical angular momentum leads to the quantized AB phase. The rotatory power and the Verdet constant are proportional to the refractive index of the medium. The quantized current in the micro-solenoid is proportional to the Bohr magneton and inversely proportional to the area of the helices.

    In this article we discuss the analogy between superfluids and a spinning thick cosmic string. We use the geometrical approach to obtain the geometrical phases for a phonon in the presence of a vortex. We use loop variables for a geometric description of Aharonov-Bohm effect in these systems. We use holonomy transformations to characterize globally the "space-time" of a vortex and in this point of view we study the gravitational analog of the Aharonov-Bohm effect in this system. We demonstrate that in the general case the Aharonov-Bohm effect has a contribution both from the rotational and the translational holonomy. We study also Berrys quantum phase for phonons in this systems.

    2011-10-12

    The gap oscillations caused by a magnetic flux penetrating a carbon nanotube represent one of the most spectacular observations of the Aharonov-Bohm effect at the nanoscale. Our understanding of this effect is, however, based on the assumption that the electrons are strictly confined on the tube surface, on trajectories that are not modified by curvature effects. Using an ab initio approach based on density functional theory, we show that this assumption fails at the nanoscale inducing important corrections to the physics of the Aharonov-Bohm effect. Curvature effects and electronic density that is spilled out of the nanotube surface are shown to break the periodicity of the gap oscillations. We predict the key phenomenological features of this anomalous Aharonov-Bohm effect in semiconductive and metallic tubes and the existence of a large metallic phase in the low flux regime of multiwalled nanotubes, also suggesting possible experiments to validate our results.

    The Aharonov Bohm scattering for spinless, isospin 1/2, particles interacting through a nonabelian Chern-Simons field is studied. Starting from the relativistic quantum field theory and using a Coulomb gauge formulation, the one loop renormalization program is implemented. Through the introduction of an intermediary cutoff, separating the regions of high and low integration momentum, the nonrelativistic limit is derived. The next to leading relativistic approximation is also determined. In this approach quantum field theory vacuum polarization effects are automatically incorporated.

    A fully quantum theory of the Aharonov-Bohm effect is presented. It is based on the interaction, mediated by virtual photon exchange, between the traveling electron and the atomic magnetic dipoles of an infinitely long permanent magnet. The calculation involves second-order time-dependent perturbation theory.

    We consider the scattering of relativistic electrons from a thin magnetic flux tube and perturbatively calculate the order $\\alpha$, radiative correction, to the first order Born approximation. We show also that the second order Born amplitude vanishes, and obtain a finite inclusive cross section for the one-body scattering which incorporates soft photon bremsstrahlung effects. Moreover, we determine the radiatively corrected Aharonov-Bohm potential and, in particular, verify that an induced magnetic field is generated outside of the flux tube.

    We show that the Aharonov-Bohm effect requires that the vector potential couple minimally to matter, not that it be a gauge field: The effect is present in massive (finite-range) electrodynamics, reducing smoothly to the original result in the limit of infinite range. Indeed, it may be used to provide an experimental bound on the range which is much larger than the ``table-top'' apparatus, namely a lower limit of order 102 km.

The effect relies on the nonreciprocal phase acquired by photons during photonic transitions. Our photonic Aharonov-Bohm interferometer is broadly tunable with a contrast ratio above 30 dB, as the operating frequency varies between 8 and 12 MHz.

    We formulate elastic and inelastic parts of linear conductance through an Aharonov-Bohm (AB) ring with an embedded quantum dot in the Kondo regime. The inelastic part G{sub inel} is proportional to T{sup 2} when the temperature T is much smaller than the Kondo temperature T{sub K}, whereas it is negligibly small compared with elastic part G{sub el} when T ? T{sub K}. G{sub inel} weakly depends on the magnetic flux penetrating the AB ring, which disturbs the precise detection of G{sub el}/(G{sub el}+G{sub inel}) by the visibility of AB oscillation.

    The analogy between general relativity and electromagnetism suggests that there is a gravitational analog of the Aharonov-Bohm effect. There is indeed such an effect. Since gravitation couples to all fields, the effect should exist for photons. There is a close connection with the Sagnac effect. Both the electromagnetic field and the gravitational field are classical fields, so the effect could have been predicted in the interval between the publication of the theory of general relativity in 1915 and the discovery of quantum mechanics in the mid 1920s.

    We discuss the consequences of the Aharonov-Bohm (AB) effect in setups involving several charged particles, wherein none of the charged particles encloses a closed loop around the magnetic flux. We show that in such setups, the AB phase is encoded either in the relative phase of a bipartite or multipartite entangled photons states, or alternatively, gives rise to an overall AB phase that can be measured relative to another reference system. These setups involve processes of annihilation or creation of electron-hole pairs. We discuss the relevance of such effects in “vacuum birefringence" in QED, and comment on their connection to other known effects.

    We show theoretically that strong electron coupling to circularly polarized photons in non-singly-connected nanostructures results in the appearance of an artificial gauge field that changes the electron phase. The effect arises from the breaking of time-reversal symmetry and is analogous to the well-known Aharonov-Bohm phase effect. It can manifest itself in the oscillations of conductance as a function of the intensity and frequency of the illumination. The theory of the effect is elaborated for mesoscopic rings in both ballistic and diffusive regimes.

    The adiabatic Aharonov-Bohm (AB) effect is a manifestation of the Berry phase acquired when some slow variables take a planar spin around a loop. While the effect has been observed in molecular spectroscopy, direct measurement of the topological phase shift in a scattering experiment has been elusive in the past. Here, we demonstrate an adiabatic AB effect for neutrons that scatter on a long straight current-carrying wire. We propose an experiment to verify the effect and demonstrate its feasibility by explicit simulation of the dynamics of unpolarized very slow neutrons that scatter on the wire under realistic conditions.

    In this study, we consider the Kondo temperature and differential conductance for an Aharonov-Bohm ring with an embedded quantum dot connected with noncollinear ferromagnetic leads. Starting from the tight-binding model, we propose an equivalent Anderson model, in which the density of states depends on the Aharonov-Bohm phase. By applying the poor man's scaling approach to the Hamiltonian, we derive the dependences of the Kondo temperature and differential conductance on the Aharonov-Bohm phase, spin polarization, angle of magnetic moment, and asymmetry parameters. We show conditions for the nonmonotonic behavior of the differential conductance in terms of the spin splitting and Aharonov-Bohm phase. In addition, by extending the model to the case of a finite ring size, we show that the Kondo temperature crucially depends on ring size, but the properties of the scaled temperature are similar to ones for the small ring-size limit.

The calculation involves second-order time-dependent perturbation theory. As expected, the relative phase between the two states—corresponding to the two alternative paths—interfering on the screen agrees with that predicted in the usual theory. However our method may allow to get corrections, for instance due to the size and shape of the electron wave packet, the possible soft-photon emission or the excitation of the atoms in the magnet.

    We demonstrate the existence of a non-local geometric phase in the intensity-intensity correlations of classical incoherent light, that is not seen in the lower order correlations. This two-photon Pancharatnam phase was observed and modulated in a Mach-Zehnder interferometer. Using acousto-optic interaction, independent phase noise was introduced to light in the two arms of the interferometer to create two independent incoherent classical sources from laser light. The experiment is the classical optical analogue of the multi-particle Aharonov-Bohm effect. As the trajectory of light over the Poincare sphere introduces a phase shift observable only in the intensity-intensity correlation, it provides a means of deflecting the two-photon wavefront, while having no effect on single photons.

    Aharonov-Bohm (AB) effects in mesoscopic metal rings have been extensively studied. In this paper, we investigate these effects on the persistent currents (PCs) in a closed graphene ring with broken time-reversal symmetry. A hard boundary condition is introduced to describe the Dirac electrons moving along such a ring-shaped configuration, and then the induced persistent currents are numerically calculated. Differing from the properties of PCs revealed in the metal AB rings, we show that the present PCs neither show the regular saw-tooth-like features nor present the odd-even symmetry of the electron number. More interestingly, we show that the energy difference between the two valleys and the amplitude of the oscillating PCs increase with the decrease (increase) of the radius (width) of the graphene ring. Our results imply that the AB effect and size-dependent PCs in ring-shaped microstructures could be tested at room temperature. PMID:21399310

    The spectral analysis of Aharonov-Bohm Hamiltonians with flux \\frac12 leads surprisingly to a new insight on some questions of isospectrality appearing for example in Jakobson et al (2006 J. Comput. Appl. Math. 194 141-55) and Levitin et al (J. Phys. A: Math. Gen. 39 2073-82) and of minimal partitions (Helffer et al 2009 Ann. Inst. H. Poincaré Anal. Non Linéaire 26 101-38). We will illustrate this point of view by discussing the question of spectral minimal 3-partitions for the rectangle \\big]{-}\\frac a2,\\frac a2\\big[\\times \\big]{-}\\frac b2,\\frac b2\\big[ , with 0 < a <= b. It has been observed in Helffer et al (2009 Ann. Inst. H. Poincaré Anal. Non Linéaire 26 101-38) that when 0<\\frac ab < \\sqrt{\\vphantom{A^A}\\smash{\\\\frac 38}} the minimal 3-partition is obtained by the three nodal domains of the third eigenfunction corresponding to the three rectangles \\big]{-}\\frac a2,\\frac a2\\big[\\times \\big] {-}\\frac b2,-\\frac b6\\big[, \\big]{-}\\frac a2,\\frac a2\\big[\\times \\big]{-}\\frac b6,\\frac b6\\big[ and \\big]{-}\\frac a2,\\frac a2\\big[\\times \\big] \\frac b6, \\frac b2\\big[ . We will describe a possible mechanism of transition for increasing \\frac ab between these nodal minimal 3-partitions and non-nodal minimal 3-partitions at the value \\sqrt{\\vphantom{A^A}\\smash{\\\\frac 38}} and discuss the existence of symmetric candidates for giving minimal 3-partitions when \\sqrt{\\vphantom{A^A}\\smash{\\\\frac 38}} <\\frac ab \\leq 1 . Numerical analysis leads very naturally to nice questions of isospectrality which are solved by the introduction of Aharonov-Bohm Hamiltonians or by going on the double covering of the punctured rectangle.

    The problem of the relation between the Ahronov-Bohm effect and traditional postulates of electrodynamics, which claim that only electric and magnetic fields are observable, is resolved by denial of the statement about validity of the Maxwell equations for microscopic fields. We proceed from the idea that the Maxwell equations, as the generalization of experimental data, are valid only for averaged values. We show that microscopic electrodynamics should be based on postulation of the d'Alembert equations for four-vector of the electromagnetic field potential. The Lorentz condition is valid only for the averages and provides the implementation of the Maxwell equations for averages. This concept eliminates the problem of electromagnetic field quantization and provides the correctness of all known results of quantum electrodynamics. Therefore, the "virtuality" of the longitudinal and scalar photons has a formal mathematical character, conditioned by the Maxwell equations for averaged fields. The longitudinal and scalar photons provide not only the Coulomb interaction of charged particles, but also allow the electrical Aharonov-Bohm effect.

We have observed field-induced optical anisotropy as well as red shifts and splittings of absorption and photoluminescence peaks. The amounts of shifts and splittings depend on the value of ?/?0 and are quantitatively consistent with theories based on the Aharonov-Bohm effect.

    The Aharonov-Bohm effect is considered by most authors as a quantum effect, but a generally accepted explanation does not seem to be available. The phenomenon is studied here under the assumption that hypothetical electric dipole distributions configured by moving charges in the solenoid act on the electrons as test particles. The relative motions of the interacting charged particles introduce relativistic time dilations. The massless dipoles are postulated as part of an impact model that has recently been proposed to account for the far-reaching electrostatic forces between charged particles described by Coulomb's law. The model provides a quantitative explanation of the Aharonov-Bohm effect.

    Stokes' theorem is investigated in the context of the time-dependent Aharonov-Bohm effect—the two-slit quantum interference experiment with a time varying solenoid between the slits. The time varying solenoid produces an electric field which leads to an additional phase shift which is found to exactly cancel the time-dependent part of the usual magnetic Aharonov-Bohm phase shift. This electric field arises from a combination of a non-single valued scalar potential and/or a 3-vector potential. The gauge transformation which leads to the scalar and 3-vector potentials for the electric field is non-single valued. This feature is connected with the non-simply connected topology of the Aharonov-Bohm set-up. The non-single valued nature of the gauge transformation function has interesting consequences for the 4-dimensional Stokes' theorem for the time-dependent Aharonov-Bohm effect. An experimental test of these conclusions is proposed.

    The Aharonov-Bohm effect was conclusively established by a series of our electron interference experiments, with the help of some advanced techniques, such as coherent field-emission electron beams and microlithography. Using this fundamental principle behind the interaction of an electron wave with electromagnetic fields, new observation techniques were developed to directly observe microscopic objects and quantum phenomena previously unobservable.

    Metallic nature of transport in graphene, which is fairly robust with respect to varying amounts of disorder, changes in an unexpected way when vacancies are introduced in this material. At low energies, near the Dirac point, electron scattering on vacancies mimics scattering on Aharonov-Bohm solenoids carrying unit flux. This type of scattering results in a very narrow band of states

    The Aharonov-Bohm effect is a fundamental issue in physics. It describes the physically important electromagnetic quantities in quantum mechanics. Its experimental verification constitutes a test of the theory of quantum mechanics itself. The remarkable experiments of Tonomura et al. ['Observation of Aharonov-Bohm effect by electron holography', Phys. Rev. Lett 48, 1443 (1982) and 'Evidence for Aharonov-Bohm effect with magnetic field completely shielded from electron wave', Phys. Rev. Lett 56, 792 (1986)] are widely considered as the only experimental evidence of the physical existence of the Aharonov-Bohm effect. Here we give the first rigorous proof that the classical ansatz of Aharonov and Bohm of 1959 ['Significance of electromagnetic potentials in the quantum theory', Phys. Rev. 115, 485 (1959)], that was tested by Tonomura et al., is a good approximation to the exact solution to the Schroedinger equation. This also proves that the electron, that is, represented by the exact solution, is not accelerated, in agreement with the recent experiment of Caprez et al. in 2007 ['Macroscopic test of the Aharonov-Bohm effect', Phys. Rev. Lett. 99, 210401 (2007)], that shows that the results of the Tonomura et al. experiments can not be explained by the action of a force. Under the assumption that the incoming free electron is a Gaussian wave packet, we estimate the exact solution to the Schroedinger equation for all times. We provide a rigorous, quantitative error bound for the difference in norm between the exact solution and the Aharonov-Bohm Ansatz. Our bound is uniform in time. We also prove that on the Gaussian asymptotic state the scattering operator is given by a constant phase shift, up to a quantitative error bound that we provide. Our results show that for intermediate size electron wave packets, smaller than the ones used in the Tonomura et al. experiments, quantum mechanics predicts the results observed by Tonomura et al. with an error bound smaller than 10{sup -99}. It would be quite interesting to perform experiments with electron wave packets of intermediate size. Furthermore, we provide a physical interpretation of our error bound.

    We study a noncommutative nonrelativistic theory in 2+1 dimensions of a scalar field coupled to the Chern-Simons field. In the commutative situation this model has been used to simulate the Aharonov-Bohm effect in the field theory context. We verified that, contrarily to the commutative result, the inclusion of a quartic self-interaction of the scalar field is not necessary to secure the ultraviolet renormalizability of the model. However, to obtain a smooth commutative limit the presence of a quartic gauge invariant self-interaction is required. For small noncommutativity we fix the corrections to the Aharonov-Bohm scattering and prove that up to one-loop the model is free from dangerous infrared/ultraviolet divergences.

    We study the nonrelativistic limit of the quantum theory of a Chern-Simons field minimally coupled to a scalar field with quartic self-interaction. The renormalization of the relativistic model, in the Coulomb gauge, is discussed. We employ a procedure to calculate scattering amplitudes for low momenta that generates their $|p|/m$ expansion and separates the contributions coming from high and low energy intermediary states. The two body scattering amplitude is calculated up to order $p^2/m^2$. It is shown that the existence of a critical value of the self-interaction parameter for which the 2-particle scattering amplitude reduces to the Aharonov-Bohm one is a strictly nonrelativistic feature. The subdominant terms correspond to relativistic corrections to the Aharonov-Bohm scattering. A nonrelativistic reduction scheme and an effective nonrelativistic Lagrangian to account for the relativistic corrections are proposed.

    We show how macroscopic manifestations of P (and T) symmetry breaking can arise in a simple system subject to Aharonov-Bohm interactions. Specifically, we study the conductivity of a gas of charged particles moving through a dilute array of flux tubes. The interaction of the electrons with the flux tubes is taken to be of a purely Aharonov-Bohm type. We find that the system exhibits a nonzero transverse conductivity, i.e., a spontaneous Hall effect. This is in contrast to the fact that the cross sections for both scattering and bremsstrahlung (soft-photon emission) of a single electron from a flux tube are invariant under reflections. We argue that the asymmetry in the conductivity coefficients arises from many-body effects. On the other hand, the transverse conductivity has the same dependence on universal constants that appears in the quantum Hall effect, a result that we relate to the validity of the mean-field approximation.

    The exact energy spectrum and wave function of a charged particle moving in the Coulomb field and Aharonov-Bohm’s magnetic flux are solved by the nonintegrable phase factor. The universal formula for the matrix elements of the radial operator r? of arbitrary power ? is given by an analytical solution. The difference between the classical limit of matrix elements of inverse radius in quantum mechanics and the Fourier components of the corresponding quantity for the pure Coulomb system in classical mechanics is examined in reference to the correspondence principle of Heisenberg. Explicit calculation shows that the influence of nonlocal Aharonov-Bohm effect exists even in the classical limit. The semiclassical quantization rule for systems containing the topological effect is presented in the light of Heisenberg’s corresponding principle.

    We show theoretically that the strong coupling of circularly polarized photons to an exciton in ringlike semiconductor nanostructures results in physical nonequivalence of clockwise and counterclockwise exciton rotations in the ring. As a consequence, the stationary energy splitting of exciton states corresponding to these mutually opposite rotations appears. This excitonic Aharonov-Bohm effect depends on the intensity and frequency of the circularly polarized field and can be detected in state-of-the-art optical experiments.

    We study the persistent currents induced by both the Aharonov-Bohm and Aharonov-Casher effects in a one-dimensional mesoscopic ring coupled to a sidebranch quantum dot at Kondo resonance. For privileged values of the Aharonov-Bohm-Casher fluxes, the problem can be mapped onto an integrable model, exactly solvable by a Bethe ansatz. In the case of a pure magnetic Aharonov-Bohm flux, we find that the presence of the quantum dot has no effect on the persistent current. In contrast, the Kondo resonance interferes with the spin-dependent Aharonov-Casher effect to induce a current which, in the strong-coupling limit, is independent of the number of electrons in the ring.

    In this work we study modifications in the Aharonov-Bohm effect for relativistic spin 1/2 particles due to the noncommutativity of spacetime in $2 + 1$ dimensions. The noncommutativity gives rise to a correction to the Aharonov-Bohm potential which is highly singular at the origin, producing divergences in a perturbative expansion around the usual solution of the free Dirac equation. This problem is surmounted by using a perturbative expansion around the exact solution of the \\textit{commutative} Aharonov-Bohm problem. We calculate, in this setting, the scattering amplitude and the corrections to the differential and total cross sections for a spin 1/2 particle, in the small-flux limit.

    In the context of the natural splitting, the standard relative dynamics can be expressed in terms of gravito-electromagnetic fields, which allow to formally introduce a gravito-magnetic Aharonov-Bohm effect. We showed elsewhere that this formal analogy can be used to derive the Sagnac effect in flat space-time as a gravito-magnetic Aharonov-Bohm effect. Here, we generalize those results to study the General Relativistic corrections to the Sagnac effect in some stationary and axially symmetric geometries, such as the space-time around a weakly gravitating and rotating source, Kerr space-time, G\\"{odel} universe and Schwarzschild space-time.

    We consider a nonrelativistic quantum charged particle moving on a plane under the influence of a uniform magnetic field and driven by a periodically time-dependent Aharonov-Bohm flux. We observe an acceleration effect in the case when the Aharonov-Bohm flux depends on time as a sinusoidal function whose frequency is in resonance with the cyclotron frequency. In particular, the energy of the particle increases linearly for large times. An explicit formula for the acceleration rate is derived with the aid of the quantum averaging method, and then it is checked against a numerical solution with a very good agreement.

    We study two quantum dots embedded in the arms of an Aharonov-Bohm ring threaded by a magnetic flux. This system can be described by an effective one-impurity Anderson model with an energy- and flux- dependent density of states. For specific values of the flux, this density of states vanishes at the Fermi energy, yielding a controlled realization of the pseudogap Kondo effect. The conductance and trans- mission phase shifts reflect a nontrivial interplay between wave interference and interactions, providing clear signatures of quantum phase transitions between Kondo and non-Kondo ground states.

    The classical electromagnetic lag assocated with the Aharonov-Bohm phase shift is obtained by using a Darwin-Lagrangian analysis similar to that given by Coleman and Van Vleck to identify the puzzling forces of the Shockley-James paradox. The classical forces cause changes in particle velocities and so produce a relative lag leading to the same phase shift as predicted by Aharonov and Bohm and observed in experiments. An experiment is proposed to test for this lag aspect implied by the classical analysis but not present in the currently-accepted quantum topological description of the phase shift.

We solve the Pauli equation in 3 + 1 dimensions taking into account explicitly the interaction between the three-dimensional spin magnetic moment of electron and magnetic field. Expressions for the scattering amplitude and the cross section are obtained for spin-polarized electron scattered off a flux tube of small radius. It is also shown that bound electron states cannot occur in this quantum system. The scattering problem for the model of a flux tube of zero radius in the Born approximation is briefly discussed.

    The independence of the Aharonov-Bohm phase shift on particle velocity is one of its defining properties. The classical counterpart to this dispersionless behavior is the absence of forces along the direction of motion of the particle. A reevaluation of the experimental demonstration that forces are absent in the AB physical system is given, including previously unpublished data. It is shown that the debate on the presence or absence of forces is not settled, and an experiment searching for dispersionless forces is proposed.

    It is suggested that the quantum uncertainty of cavity radiation is measurable via Aharonov-Bohm effects for electrons in a ring which is threaded by the magnetic cavity flux. When the electrons follow this oscillatory flux nearly adiabatically, and dissipation is negligible, the noise in the ring current should provide a quantum-nondemolition measure of the flux uncertainty. Unlike standard photodetection, such measurements should reveal the scaling of the flux uncertainty with the diamagnetic or dielectric index of the cavity medium, depending on the dimensions of the electron ring.

On the other hand, a construction is described of an infinite periodic system of solenoids for which either $H^+$ or $H^-$ has zero modes depending on the value of the flux carried by the solenoids.

If the induced charge is taken into account, the interference pattern of the moving charge will not change with the potential difference between the two metal tubes. It means that the scale potential itself can not affect the phase of the moving charge, and the true factor affecting the phase of the moving charge is the energy of the system including the moving charge and the induced charge.

    We theoretically investigate the thermoelectric effects in an Aharonov-Bohm ring with a serially coupled double quantum dot embedded in one arm. An external magnetic field is perpendicularly applied to the two dots. Using the nonequilibrium Green's function method in the linear-response regime, we calculate the charge and spin figures of merit. When the energy levels of the two quantum dots are equal and the system is connected to two normal leads, a large spin figure of merit (Z{sub s}T???4.5) accompanying with a small charge figure of merit (Z{sub c}T???0) can be generated due to the remarkable bipolar effect. Further, when the system is connected to two ferromagnetic leads, the spin figure of merit can reach even a higher value about 9. Afterwards, we find that Z{sub s}T is enhanced while Z{sub c}T is reduced in the coaction of the Aharonov-Bohm flux and Rashba spin-orbit coupling. It is argued that the bipolar effect is positive (negative) to spin (charge) figure of merit in the presence of level detuning of the two quantum dots and intradot Coulomb interactions, respectively. Also, we propose a possible experiment to verify our results.

    The three dimensional topological insulator (3D TI) is a new class of material having metallic surface states characterized by gapless Dirac dispersions and novel properties such as momentum-spin locking. A TI nanowire with an insulating bulk can be described as a hollow metallic cylinder, showing Aharonov-Bohm oscillations when a magnetic flux is threaded through the axis. The magneto-conductance of a TI nanowire near the Dirac point is expected to have a minimum at zero magnetic field and an oscillation period of one magnetic flux quantum, ? (due to a Berry phase of ? acquired by electron waves upon 2 ? rotation of electron spin around the surface of the nanowire). In this talk, we discuss magneto-conductance measurements of TI (Bi2Se3) nanowires, measured as the gate voltage is tuned through the Dirac point. The Aharonov-Bohm oscillations switch from a conductance maximum to a minimum at zero field as the Dirac point is approached, consistent with the existence of a Berry phase in the nanowire.

    Aharonov-Bohm oscillations effectively demonstrate coherent, ballistic transport in mesoscopic rings and tubes. In three-dimensional topological insulator nanowires, they can be used to not only characterize surface states but also to test predictions of unique topological behaviour. Here we report measurements of Aharonov-Bohm oscillations in (Bi1.33Sb0.67)Se3 that demonstrate salient features of topological nanowires. By fabricating quasi-ballistic three-dimensional topological insulator nanowire devices that are gate-tunable through the Dirac point, we are able to observe alternations of conductance maxima and minima with gate voltage. Near the Dirac point, we observe conductance minima for zero magnetic flux through the nanowire and corresponding maxima (having magnitudes of almost a conductance quantum) at magnetic flux equal to half a flux quantum; this is consistent with the presence of a low-energy topological mode. The observation of this mode is a necessary step towards utilizing topological properties at the nanoscale in post-CMOS applications. PMID:26158768

    In this work the bound state and scattering problems for a spin- 1/2 particle undergone to an Aharonov–Bohm potential in a conical space in the nonrelativistic limit are considered. The presence of a ?-function singularity, which comes from the Zeeman spin interaction with the magnetic flux tube, is addressed by the self-adjoint extension method. One of the advantages of the present approach is the determination of the self-adjoint extension parameter in terms of physics of the problem. Expressions for the energy bound states, phase-shift and S matrix are determined in terms of the self-adjoint extension parameter, which is explicitly determined in terms of the parameters of the problem. The relation between the bound state and zero modes and the failure of helicity conservation in the scattering problem and its relation with the gyromagnetic ratio g are discussed. Also, as an application, we consider the spin- 1/2 Aharonov–Bohm problem in conical space plus a two-dimensional isotropic harmonic oscillator. -- Highlights: •Planar dynamics of a spin- 1/2 neutral particle. •Bound state for Aharonov–Bohm systems. •Aharonov–Bohm scattering. •Helicity nonconservation. •Determination of the self-adjoint extension parameter.

    We theoretically study the Kondo effect in a quantum dot embedded in an Aharonov-Bohm ring, using the "poor man's" scaling method. Analytical expressions of the Kondo temperature TK are given as a function of magnetic flux ? penetrating the ring. In this Kondo problem, there are two characteristic lengths, Lc=?vF?|?˜0| and LK = ?vF = TK, where vF is the Fermi velocity and ?˜0 is the renormalized energy level in the quantum dot. The former is the screening length of the charge fluctuation and the latter is that of the spin fluctuation, i.e., size of Kondo screening cloud. We obtain diferent expressions of TK(?) for (i) Lc ? LK ? L, (ii) Lc ? L ? LK, and (iii) L ? Lc ? LK, where L is the size of the ring. TK is remarkably modulated by ? in cases (ii) and (iii), whereas it hardly depends on ? in case (i).

    The S-matrix of the relativistic theory of charged scalar particles interacting via the Chern-Simons field is shown to be formally equivalent to the S-matrix of scalar QED in 2 + 1 dimensions in which the Feynman diagrams with external photon lines are excluded and the propagators of the Chern-Simons particles are substituted instead of the photon propagators. It is shown that the non-relativistic limit of the scattering amplitude of two anyons is also finite independently of the presence of the contact interaction, unlike the non-relativistic theory. It is found that for a certain value of the contact interaction, the scattering amplitude coincides with that of Aharonov-Bohm scattering in the same approximation.

    Rectification of electron wave-packets propagating along a quasi-one dimensional chain is commonly achieved via the simultaneous action of nonlinearity and longitudinal asymmetry, both confined to a limited portion of the chain termed wave diode. However, it is conceivable that, in the presence of an external magnetic field, spatial asymmetry perpendicular to the direction of propagation suffices to ensure rectification. This is the case of a nonlinear ring-shaped lattice with different upper and lower halves (diode), which is attached to two elastic chains (leads). The resulting device is mirror symmetric with respect to the ring vertical axis, but mirror asymmetric with respect to the chain direction. Wave propagation along the two diode paths can be modeled for simplicity by a discrete Schrödinger equation with cubic nonlinearities. Numerical simulations demonstrate that, thanks to the Aharonov-Bohm effect, such a diode can be operated by tuning the magnetic flux across the ring. PMID:24691462

  5. Mesoscopic Transport Through a Quantum-Dot-Embedded Aharonov-Bohm Ring Threaded with AC Flux

    Zhao, Hong-Kang

    The electron transporting through a mesoscopic ring embedded with one quantum dot and threaded by dc and ac magnetic fluxes is investigated by employing the Keldysh nonequilibrium Green function technique. The tunneling current and differential conductance are derived to show the Aharonov-Bohm-like effect induced by external magnetic fluxes. The multi-channel ring and multi-level quantum dot system is studied. The quenching and nonmonotone effects versus the magnitude of ac flux are revealed in differential conductance. This signifies that at some values of ac flux, the tunneling current may be suppressed or enhanced. The differential conductance oscillation and I-V characteristics are studied numerically at zero temperature. The aperiodically nonmonotonical conductance versus the magnitude of ac flux, multi-channel negative differential conductance, photon-electron pump effect are also observed.

    The quantum nature of matter lies in the wave function phases that accumulate while particles move along their trajectories. A prominent example is the Aharonov-Bohm phase, which has been studied in connection with the conductance of nanostructures. However, optical response in solids is determined by neutral excitations, for which no sensitivity to magnetic flux would be expected. We propose a mechanism for the topological phase of a neutral particle, a polarized exciton confined to a semiconductor quantum ring. We predict that this magnetic-field induced phase may strongly affect excitons in a system with cylindrical symmetry, resulting in switching between ``bright'' exciton ground states and novel ``dark'' states with nearly infinite lifetimes. Since excitons determine the optical response of semiconductors, the predicted phase can be used to tailor photon emission from quantum nanostructures.

    We demonstrate the existence of a non-local geometric phase in the intensity-intensity correlations of classical incoherent light, that is not seen in the lower-order correlations. This two-photon Pancharatnam phase was observed and modulated in a Mach-Zehnder interferometer. Using acousto-optic interaction, independent phase noise was introduced to light in the two arms of the interferometer to create two independent incoherent classical sources from laser light. The experiment is the classical optical analogue of the multi-particle Aharonov-Bohm effect. As the trajectory of light over the Poincaré sphere introduces a phase shift observable only in the intensity-intensity correlation, it provides a means of deflecting the two-photon wavefront, while having no effect on single photons.

    The time-dependent electron transport through an Aharonov-Bohm ring embedded with two quantum dots in the presence of external microwave (MW) fields are investigated theoretically by using the nonequilibrium Green's function method. Whether the MW field can induce or suppress the Fano resonance depends on the part to which the field is applied. When the MW field is applied only to the two quantum dots, the photon-assisted Fano peaks appear at the sidebands of the original Fano peak. The existence of the original Fano peak or the photon-assisted ones can be controlled by the field strength. When the MW field is applied only to one lead, the original Fano peak is suppressed by the MW field, and the negative current caused by the electron-photon pump effects is found.

  9. A possible interplay between electron beams and magnetic fluxes in the Aharonov-Bohm effect

    Most studies on the magnetic Aharonov-Bohm (A-B) effect focus on the action exerted by the magnetic flux on the electron beam, but neglect the back-action exerted by the electron beam on the magnetic flux. This paper focuses on the latter, which is the electromotive force ?U across the solenoid induced by the time-dependent magnetic field of the electron beam. Based on the back-action analysis, we observe that the magnetic A-B effect arises owing to the interaction energy between the magnetic field of the electron beam and the magnetic field of the solenoid. We also demonstrate that the interpretation attributing the magnetic A-B effect to the vector potential violates the uncertainty principle.

    2012-01-01

    Thermoelectric effect is studied in an Aharonov-Bohm interferometer with an embedded quantum dot (QD) in the Coulomb blockade regime. The electrical conductance, electron thermal conductance, thermopower, and thermoelectric figure-of-merit are calculated by using the Keldysh Green's function method. It is found that the figure-of-merit ZT of the QD ring may be quite high due to the Fano effect originated from the quantum interference effect. Moreover, the thermoelectric efficiency is sensitive to the magnitude of the dot-lead and inter-lead coupling strengthes. The effect of intradot Coulomb repulsion on ZT is significant in the weak-coupling regime, and then large ZT values can be obtained at rather high temperature. PMID:22369454

    Recent experiment [Sigrist et al., Phys. Rev. Lett. 98, 036805 (2007)] reported switches between 0 and ? in the phase of Aharonov-Bohm oscillations of the two-terminal differential conductance through a two-dot ring with increasing voltage bias. Using a simple model, where one of the dots contains multiple interacting levels, these findings are explained as a result of transport through the interferometer being dominated at different biases by quantum dot levels of different ``parity'' (i.e. the sign of the overlap integral between the dot state and the states in the leads). The redistribution of electron population between different levels with bias leads to the fact that the number of switching events is not necessarily equal to the number of dot levels, in agreement with experiment. For the same reason switching does not always imply that the parity of levels is strictly alternating. Lastly, it is demonstrated that the correlation between the first switching of the phase and the onset of the inelastic cotunneling, as well as the sharp (rather than gradual) change of phase when switching occurs, give reason to think that the present interpretation of the experiment is preferable to the one based on electrostatic AB effect.

    The transmission and phase properties of electron transport through a quantum dot (QD) with variable coupling to a third-terminal probe are investigated analytically for the case of the QD connected directly to source and drain reservoirs and when the QD is embedded in one arm of an Aharonov-Bohm (AB) ring. Using the tight-binding model, explicit analytical expressions of the transmission through the QD for each case are given. Expressions for the conductance with coupling to the third terminal, which breaks unitarity and phase-locking, are also given. It is shown that in a three-terminal interferometer the zero of the Fano resonance in the transmission moves off the real energy axis for finite values of the coupling parameter. The zero orbits around the pole in the complex energy plane as a function of magnetic flux through the ring, and can be returned to the real energy axis unless the coupling parameter exceeds a critical value. With the QD embedded in one arm of the AB ring, the electron transmission and the transmission phase, and the phase of the AB oscillations, are described in relation to the degree of coupling to the third-terminal probe which opens the interferometer. By tuning the degree of coupling to the probe, it is shown that the phase of the AB oscillations can be made to match the intrinsic phase of the QD, facilitating experimental characterization of the phase response of the QD.

    One of the points at issue with closed-loop-type interferometers is beating in the Aharonov-Bohm (AB) oscillations. Recent observations suggest the possibility that the beating results from the Berry-phase pickup by the conducting electrons in materials with the strong spin-orbit interaction (SOI). In this study, we also observed beats in the AB oscillations in a gate-defined closed-loop interferometer fabricated on a GaAs/Al{sub 0.3}Ga{sub 0.7}As two-dimensional electron-gas heterostructure. Since this heterostructure has very small SOI, the picture of the Berry-phase pickup is ruled out. The observation of beats in this study, with the controllability of forming a single transverse subband mode in both arms of our gate-defined interferometer, also rules out the often-claimed multiple transverse subband effect. It is observed that nodes of the beats with an h/2e period exhibit a parabolic distribution for varying the side gate. These results are shown to be well interpreted, without resorting to the SOI effect, by the existence of two-dimensional multiple longitudinal modes in a single transverse subband. The Fourier spectrum of measured conductance, despite showing multiple h/e peaks with the magnetic-field dependence that are very similar to that from strong-SOI materials, can also be interpreted as the two-dimensional multiple-longitudinal-modes effect.

    We study electron energies in a double concentric quantum ring with anisotropy in the rims heights in the presence of the external magnetic field applied along the symmetry axis. To this end, we consider a model in which the thickness grows linearly from the axis up to the inner rim with a slope different from one between the inner and the outer rims. The anisotropy in the rims heights originated by the presence in the structure of various valleys we simulate by periodic dependence of the slope on the radial direction. We show that the wave functions of the electron confined in such structure can be found analytically if the slopes in all radial directions are the same, and by using a simple exact diagonalization procedure otherwise. The behavior of the electron energies as functions of the magnetic field, rings radii and rims heights, as well as the number of the valleys and their depths is consistently described with our formalism. The entanglement of the states with different radial and orbital quantum numbers, the period and the amplitude of the Aharonov-Bohm oscillations are very sensible to any variations of the rims heights.

    Recently we have proposed the method of Raman Adiabatic Transfer of Optical States (RATOS) to manipulate the optical state of light. A four-level atomic medium in double-? configuration is interacting with two pump fields and a signal photon with very slow group velocity. An adiabatic change in time of the pump fields can then generate a slow photon in a superposition of different frequencies. Here we theoretically analyze the influence of an adiabatic change in the spatial form of the pump fields. We demonstrate that the signal photon then behaves like a charged quasi-particle: in paraxial approximation its dynamics is governed by a Schr"odinger-like equation that includes a scalar and a vector potential whose form is determined by the shape of the pump fields. We suggest pump field configurations that generate potentials corresponding to a constant electric and a constant magnetic field. Furthermore we devise a scheme of pump fields that generates a vector potential of Aharonov-Bohm type which induces a topological phase shift for slow photons.

    Cold neutral atoms provide a versatile and controllable platform for emulating various quantum systems. Despite efforts to develop artificial gauge fields in these systems, realizing a unique ideal-solenoid-shaped magnetic field within the quantum domain in any real-world physical system remains elusive. Here we propose a scheme to generate a "hairline" solenoid with an extremely small size around 1 micrometer which is smaller than the typical coherence length in cold atoms. Correspondingly, interference effects will play a role in transport. Despite the small size, the magnetic flux imposed on the atoms is very large thanks to the very strong field generated inside the solenoid. By arranging different sets of Laguerre-Gauss (LG) lasers, the generation of Abelian and non-Abelian SU(2) lattice gauge fields is proposed for neutral atoms in ring- and square-shaped optical lattices. As an application, interference patterns of the magnetic type-I Aharonov-Bohm (AB) effect are obtained by evolving atoms along a circle over several tens of lattice cells. During the evolution, the quantum coherence is maintained and the atoms are exposed to a large magnetic flux. The scheme requires only standard optical access, and is robust to weak particle interactions. PMID:25103877

    The Aharonov–Bohm (AB) effect in the photodetachment microscopy of the H? ions in an electric field has been studied on the basis of the semiclassical theory. After the H? ion is irradiated by a laser light, they provide a coherent electron source. When the detached electron is accelerated by a uniform electric field, two trajectories of a detached electron which run from the source to the same point on the detector, will interfere with each other and lead to an interference pattern in the photodetachment microscopy. After the solenoid is electrified beside the H? ion, even though no Lorentz force acts on the electron outside the solenoid, the photodetachment microscopy interference pattern on the detector is changed with the variation in the magnetic flux enclosed by the solenoid. This is caused by the AB effect. Under certain conditions, the interference pattern reaches the macroscopic dimensions and could be observed in a direct AB effect experiment. Our study can provide some predictions for the future experimental study of the AB effect in the photodetachment microscopy of negative ions.

    In this paper we study the stationary scattering problem of the Aharonov-Bohm (AB) effect. To achieve this goal we construct a Hamiltonian from the most general representations of the Heisenberg algebra. Such representations are defined on a non-simply-connected manifold which we set as the flat circular annulus. By means of the von Neumann's self-adjoint extensions formalism, the scattering data are then provided. No solenoid is considered in this paper. The corresponding Hamiltonian is based on a topological quantum degree of freedom inherent in such representations. This variable stands for the magnetic vector gauge potential at quantum level. Our outcomes confirm the topological nature of this effect.

    We explain the origin and the nature of a special nonlinear supersymmetry of a reflectionless Poschl-Teller system by the Aharonov-Bohm effect for a nonrelativistic particle on the AdS_2. A key role in the supersymmetric structure appearing after reduction by a compact generator of the AdS_2 isometry is shown to be played by the discrete symmetries related to the space and time reflections in the ambient Minkowski space. We also observe that a correspondence between the two quantum non-relativistic systems is somewhat of the AdS/CFT holography nature.

We demonstrate that both the interference pattern of the electron probability density and differential cross section for half-cycle pulse ionization exhibit periodic modulation as a function of magnetic flux cutting the plane of packet motion. The shift is proportional to the magnetic flux in a way characteristic for the Aharonov-Bohm effect.

  10. Classical Interaction of a Magnet and a Point Charge: The Classical Electromagnetic Forces Responsible for the Aharonov-Bohm Phase Shift

    E-print Network

    Timothy H. Boyer

    2014-08-26

    A new classical electromagnetic analysis is presented suggesting that the Aharonov-Bohm phase shift is overwhelmingly likely to arise from a classical lag effect based upon classical electromagnetic forces. The analysis makes use of several aspects of classical electromagnetic theory which are unfamiliar to most physicists, including the Darwin Lagrangian, acceleration-based electric fields, internal electromagnetic momentum in a magnet, and a magnet model involving at least three mutually-interacting particles. Only when the acceleration-based electric forces acting on the passing charge are included do we find consistency with all the relativistic conservation laws: energy, linear momentum, angular momentum, and constant center-of-mass velocity. The electric forces on the passing charge lead to a lag effect which accounts quantitatively for the Aharonov-Bohm phase shift. Thus the classical analysis strongly suggests that the Aharonov-Bohm phase shift (observed when electrons pass a long solenoid which corresponds to a line of magnetic dipoles) is the analogue of the Matteucci-Pozzi phase shift (observed when electrons pass a line of electric dipoles). The classical electromagnetic analysis suggests experiments to distinguish the proposed classical-based lag effect from the presently accepted view that the Aharonov-Bohm phase shift is a quantum topological effect arising from magnetic fluxes in the absence of classical electromagnetic forces.

    The (Berry-Aharonov-Anandan) geometric phase acquired during a cyclic quantum evolution of finite-dimensional quantum systems is studied. It is shown that a pure quantum state in a (2J+1)-dimensional Hilbert space (or, equivalently, of a spin-J system) can be mapped onto the partition function of a gas of independent Dirac strings moving on a sphere and subject to the Coulomb repulsion of 2J fixed test charges (the Majorana stars) characterizing the quantum state. The geometric phase may be viewed as the Aharonov-Bohm phase acquired by the Majorana stars as they move through the gas of Dirac strings. Expressions for the geometric connection and curvature, for the metric tensor, as well as for the multipole moments (dipole, quadrupole, etc.), are given in terms of the Majorana stars. Finally, the geometric formulation of the quantum dynamics is presented and its application to systems with exotic ordering such as spin nematics is outlined. PMID:23004240

  12. Fano effect in the Andreev reflection of the Aharonov-Bohm-Fano ring with Majorana bound states

    The Andreev reflection in an Aharonov-Bohm-Fano ring induced by Majorana bound states (MBSs) is theoretically investigated. We find that compared with the Fano effect in the normal electron tunneling process, the Fano effect here is more determined by the structural parameters, i.e., the quantum dot level, the dot-MBS coupling, and the dot-MBS and MBS-lead couplings. By transforming the ring into its Nambu representation, we present a comprehensive analysis about the quantum interference in the Andreev reflection, and then explain the reason for the occurrence of the Fano effect. These results will be helpful for understanding the quantum interference in the MBS-assisted Andreev reflection.

    The Cornellpotential consists of linear and Coulomb potentials, i.e. - a/ r+ br, and has attracted a great deal of attention in particle physics. In this article, we study the energy levels and the wave function for an arbitrary m-state in the two-dimensional (2D) Klein-Gordon (KG) equation with the unequal scalar-vector Cornell potentials under the influence of strong external uniform magnetic and Aharonov-Bohm (AB) flux fields perpendicular to the plane where the interacting particles are confined. We use the wave function ansatz method to solve the radial problem of the KG equation with the Cornell potential. We obtain the energy levels in the absence of external fields and also find the energy levels of the familiar Coulomb and harmonic oscillator potentials.

    Low-temperature Aharonov-Bohm oscillations in the magnetoresistance of mesoscopic interferometric rings patterned on an InGaAs/InAlAs heterostructure are investigated for their dependence on excitation current and temperature. The rings have an average radius of 650 nm, and a lithographic arm width of 300 nm, yielding pronounced interference oscillations over a wide range of magnetic fields. Apart from a current and temperature dependence, the oscillation amplitude also shows a quasi-periodic modulation with applied magnetic field. The phase coherence length is extracted by analysis of the fundamental and higher Fourier components of the oscillations, and by direct analysis of the amplitude and its dependence on parameters. It is concluded that the Thouless energy forms the measure of excitation energies for quantum decoherence. The amplitude modulation finds an explanation in the effect of the magnetic flux threading the finite width of the interferometer arms. PMID:24096892

    The pumping of electrons through a single-dot Aharonov-Bohm ring attached to ferromagnetic leads are investigated theoretically by using the nonequilibrium Green's function method. It is found that the charge and spin pumping effects at zero-bias voltage can be produced by an oscillating electric field applied to the quantum dot. The pumped charge and spin currents through the single-dot ring are analyzed for two cases: (i) the single-dot ring is connected with two ferromagnetic leads and (ii) the single-dot ring is connected with a ferromagnetic and a normal-metal lead. For the former case, a pure spin current can be generated due to the photon-assisted tunneling effects. For the latter case, both the charge and spin current can be pumped in opposite directions. The control of the pumped spin and charge current by using the magnetic flux through the ring is also discussed.

    Using a magnetic-field-insensitive two-photon transition, the phase shift of atomic interference fringes and the frequency shift of the resonance spectrum were examined for a noncyclic rotation of a magnetic field during the interrogation time of an atom interferometer. We observed a phase shift proportional to the rotation angle of the magnetic field when the initial state and the final state were subjected to interference. We confirmed that the phase shift is equivalent to the scalar Aharonov-Bohm phase due to the geometrical potential. On the other hand, we demonstrated that the noncyclic Berry phase defined by the geodesic gauge is measurable using a strategy that the magnetic field rapidly returns to the initial direction during the interrogation time of the atom interferometer.

    We propose an experiment for the first proof of the type I electric Aharonov-Bohm effect in an ion interferometer for hydrogen. The performances of three different beam separation schemes are simulated and compared. The coherent ion beam is generated by a single atom tip (SAT) source and separated by either two biprisms with a quadrupole lens, two biprisms with an einzel-lens or three biprisms. The beam path separation is necessary to introduce two metal tubes that can be pulsed with different electric potentials. The high time resolution of a delay line detector allows to work with a continuous ion beam and circumvents the pulsed beam operation as originally suggested by Aharonov and Bohm. We demonstrate, that the higher mass and therefore lower velocity of ions compared to electrons combined with the high expected SAT ion emission puts the direct proof of this quantum effect for the first time into reach of current technical possibilities. Thereby a high coherent ion detection rate is crucial to avoid long integration times that allow the influence of dephasing noise from the environment. We can determine the period of the expected matter wave interference pattern and the signal on the detector by determining the superposition angle of the coherent partial beams. Our simulations were tested with an electron interferometer setup and agree with the experimental results. We determine the separation scheme with three biprisms to be most efficient and predict a total signal acquisition time of only 80 s to measure a phase shift from 0 to 2$\\pi$ due to the electric Aharonov-Bohm effect.

  18. Classical Electromagnetic Interaction of a Point Charge and a Magnetic Moment: Considerations Related to the Aharonov-Bohm Phase Shift

    Timothy H. Boyer

    2001-07-04

    A fundamentally new understanding of the classical electromagetic interaction of a point charge and a magnetic moment through order second order in 1/c is suggested. This relativistic analysis connects together hidden momentum in magnets, Solem's strange polarization of the classical hydrogen atom, and the Aharonov-Bohm Phase shift. We use a relativistic magnetic moment model consisting of many superimposed classical hydrogen atoms interacting through the Darwin Lagrangian with an external charge but not with each other. The analysis of Solem regarding the strange polarization of the classical hydrogen atom is seen to give a fundamentally different mechanism for the electric field of the passing charge to change the magnetic moment. The changing magnetic moment leads to an electric force back at the point charge which i)is second order in 1/c, ii)depends upon the magnetic dipole moment, changing sign with the dipole moment, iii)is odd in the charge q of the passing charge, and iv)reverses sign for charges passing on opposite sides of the magnetic moment. We suggest that a realistic multi-particle magnetic moment involves a changing magnetic moment which keeps the electromagnetic field momentum constant. This means also that the magnetic moment does not allow a significant shift in its internal center of energy. This criterion also implies that the Lorentz forces on the charged particle and on the point charge are equal and opposite and that the center of energy of each moves according to Newton's second law where the force is exactly the Lorentz force. Finally, we note that the results and suggestion given here are precisely what are needed to explain both the Aharonov-Bohm phase shift and the Aharonov-Casher phase shift as arising from classical electromagnetic forces.

The ac Stark effect of the Raman pulse was canceled out by adopting an appropriate intensity ratio of two photons in the Raman pulse. The Ramsey fringes for the pulse separation of 7 ms were obtained with a phase uncertainty of ?/200 rad. The nondispersive feature of the scalar Aharonov-Bohm phase was clearly demonstrated through 18 fringes with constant amplitude.

    The commensurate photon-irradiated mesoscopic transport in a strongly correlated quantum dot (QD) embedded Aharonov-Bohm (AB) interferometer has been investigated. We focus our investigation on the dynamic Kondo and Fano cooperated effect affected by the double commensurate MWFs with q=?/? being an arbitrary integer, where ? and ? are the two frequencies of the fields. The general tunneling current formula is derived by employing the nonequilibrium Green's function technique, and the different photon absorption and emission processes induced nonlinear properties have been studied to compare with the single-field system where q=0. Our numerical calculations are performed for the special cases with two commensurate fields possessing q=1,2. The Kondo peak can be suppressed to be a Kondo valley for the case where the commensurate number q=1, and the Fano asymmetric structure exhibits in the differential conductance quite evidently. Different commensurate number q contributes different photon absorption and emission effects. However, the conductance for the case of q=2 possesses more peaks and heavier asymmetric structure than the situations of q=0,1. The enhancement of satellite peaks behaves quite differently for the two cases with q=1, and q=2. The asymmetric peak-valley structure is adjusted by the gate voltage, commensurate MWFs, AB flux, source-drain bias, and non-resonant tunneling strength to form novel Fano and Kondo resonant tunneling.

  5. Fano-Type Spin-Flip Mesoscopic Transport Through AN Aharonov-Bohm Interferometer Responded by AC Magnetic Fields

    Gao, He; Zhao, Hong-Kang

    We have investigated the mesoscopic transport properties of an Aharonov-Bohm (AB) interferometer composed of a direct tunneling path and a resonant tunneling path incorporating a quantum dot (QD). The QD is perturbed by a rotating magnetic field (RMF) and an oscillating magnetic field (OMF). The nonresonant tunneling (NRT) path takes significant role in the spin and charge currents, and the Fano profiles display in the currents due to the modification of NRT strength. The spin current exhibits completely different behaviors as the source-drain bias eV = 0 and eV?0. The spin current is symmetric versus gate voltage when the source-drain bias eV = 0; however, it becomes asymmetric Fano-line shape resulting from the interference effect when eV?0. The OMF induced photon-assisted tunneling is quite different from the ones induced by the oscillating electric field and RMF. The tunnel currents vary dramatically with the evolution of the AB magnetic flux, and the Fano-type spin and charge currents are adjusted by OMF, RMF, AB flux, gate voltage, the source-drain bias, as well as the NRT strength to generate novel Fano-type photon-assisted spin and charge currents.

    We report on a magnetophotoluminescence study of isotopically pure {sup 70}Ge/Si self-assembled type-II quantum dots. Oscillatory behaviors attributed to the Aharonov-Bohm effect are simultaneously observed for the emission energy and intensity of excitons subject to an increasing magnetic field. When the magnetic flux penetrates through the ringlike trajectory of an electron moving around each quantum dot, the ground state of an exciton experiences a change in its angular momentum. Our results provide the experimental evidence for the phase coherence of localized electron wave functions in group-IV Ge/Si self-assembled quantum structures.

  7. The optical Aharonov-Bohm effect and magneto-optical properties in type-II quantum dots

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Whiteside, Vincent Ryan

    We present a detailed experimental study of the magneto-optical properties of type-II quantum dots (QDs) in: (1) ZnTe/ZnSe superlattices grown by Molecular Beam Epitaxy (MBE)---these Zn(SeTe) QDs evolve from Te-clustering in the ZnSe matrix during growth; and (2) diluted magnetic semiconductor, (ZnMn)Se, QDs in a ZnSe matrix produced by migration enhanced epitaxy. In case (1) the Zn(SeTe) QDs display large and robust (with temperature) oscillations as a function of magnetic field in both the photoluminescence energy and intensity as a result of the optical Aharonov-Bohm effect. The large strength of these oscillations is attributed to a combination of the type-II symmetry and the columnar geometry of the structures; the oscillations persist until 180K. The type-II diluted magnetic semiconductor, (ZnMn)Te quantum dots display similar oscillatory effects in the emission intensity. Interestingly, the coherence of the Aharonov-Bohm phase in these magnetic dots is strongly related to the spin polarization of the system due to the Mn-exciton exchange interaction as shown by the disappearance of the oscillations at low magnetic fields. The enhanced coherence at high fields, which leads to strong oscillations in intensity, is attributed to removal of magnetic disorder by the applied magnetic field. While the magnetic nature of the QDs is clear from the polarization measurements there is the seemingly contradictory behavior of a very small Zeeman shift for material that has a corresponding large Zeeman shift for the comparable composition of bulk (ZnMn)Te. More importantly, a red shift greater than 30 meV is observed in the peak energy of the PL as function of time after excitation with a picosecond pulse. These results can be explained by postulating formation of bound magnetic polarons in the QDs. The overall red shift is identified as the magnetic polaron binding energy, EMP; it is roughly independent of temperature, persisting up to 150K. The large MP binding energy is apparently contradictory to the small observed Zeeman splitting and the temperature dependence of the optical polarization in the steady state. These apparently contradictory properties are interpreted in terms of a model that explains the temperature dependence as well as the polarization and Zeeman energy splitting, while fully taking into account the polaron formation energy. The model is based on the hole-Mn and the Mn-Mn exchange coupling and their role in the magnetic polaron formation with a crucial aspect being the formation of an antiferromagnetically ordered state of the Mn spin system in each of the QDs in the absence of photoinjected holes.

    The spin-resolved nonequilibrium real-time electron transport through a double-quantum-dot (DQD) Aharonov-Bohm (AB) interferometer with spin-orbit interaction (SOI) is explored. The SOI and AB interference in the real-time dynamics of spin transport is expressed by effective magnetic fluxes. Analytical formulas for the time-dependent currents, for initially unpolarized spins, are presented. In many cases, there appear spin currents in the electrodes, for which the spins in each electrode are polarized along characteristic directions, predetermined by the SOI parameters and by the geometry of the system. Special choices of the system parameters yield steady-state currents in which the spins are fully polarized along these characteristic directions. The time required to reach this steady state depends on the couplings of the DQD to the leads. The magnitudes of the currents depend strongly on the SOI-induced effective fluxes. Without the magnetic flux, the spin-polarized current cannot be sustained to the steady states, due to the phase rigidity for this system. For a nondegenerate DQD, transient spin transport can be produced by the sole effects of SOI. We also show that one can extract the spin-resolved currents from measurements of the total charge current.

    The flux as measured by the Josephson effect in a SQUID-like configuration with a ferromagnetic core inserted into its center, is shown to be sensitive to the vector potential arising from the central ferromagnetic core, even when the core is covered with a superconducting material that prevents any magnetic field lines from ever reaching the perimeter of the SQUID-like configuration. This leads to a macroscopic, Aharonov-Bohm-like effect that is observable in an asymmetric hysteresis loop in the response of the SQUID-like configuration to an externally applied magnetic field.

    A novel kind of nonlocal, macroscopic Aharonov-Bohm effect involving two topologically linked superconducting rings made out of two different materials, namely, lead and tin, is suggested for experimental observation, in which the lead ring is a torus containing a core composed of permanently magnetized ferromagnetic material. It is predicted that the remnant fields in a hysteresis loop induced by the application of a magnetic field imposed by a large external pair of Helmholtz coils upon the tin ring, will be asymmetric with respect to the origin of the loop. An appendix based on Feynman's path-integral principle is the basis for these predictions.

The origin of the effect is the finite probability for electron and hole, created by a photon at the same point, to tunnel in the opposite directions and meet each other on the opposite side of the ring.

The geometry of this line element establishes that the motion of the particle can occur on the surface of a cone or an anti-cone. As a consequence of the nontrivial topology of the cone and also because of two-dimensional confinement, the geometric potential should be taken into account. At first, we establish the conditions for the particle describing a circular path in such a context. Because of the presence of the geometric potential, which contains a singular term, we use the self-adjoint extension method in order to describe the dynamics in all space including the singularity. Expressions are obtained for the bound state energies and wave functions.

    Topological insulators represent unusual phases of quantum matter with an insulating bulk gap and gapless edges or surface states. The two-dimensional topological insulator phase was predicted in HgTe quantum wells and confirmed by transport measurements. Recently, Bi2Se3 and related materials have been proposed as three-dimensional topological insulators with a single Dirac cone on the surface, protected by time-reversal symmetry. The

    In this paper, it is emphasized that the dynamical cause for the A-B effect is the superimposed energy between the magnetic field produced by the moving charges and that in the solenoid, instead of the existence of the vector potential. If such a superposition between the magnetic fields can be eliminated, the A-B effect should not be observed any more. To verify this viewpoint, a new experimental method using a SQUID is suggested in this paper.

    The unique ultra-relativistic, massless, nature of electron states in two-dimensional extended graphene sheets, brought about by the honeycomb lattice arrangement of carbon atoms in two-dimensions, provides ingress to explorations of fundamental physical phenomena in graphene nanostructures. Here we explore the emergence of new behavior of electrons in atomically precise segmented graphene nanoribbons (GNRs) and graphene rings with the use of tight-binding calculations, non-equilibrium Green's function transport theory, and a newly developed Dirac continuum model that absorbs the valence-to-conductance energy gaps as position-dependent masses, including topological-in-origin mass-barriers at the contacts between segments. Through transport investigations in variable-width segmented GNRs with armchair, zigzag, and mixed edge terminations we uncover development of new Fabry-Perot-like interference patterns in segmented GNRs, a crossover from the ultra-relativistic massless regime, characteristic of extended gra...

    We study the low energy regime of the scattering of two fermionic particles carrying isospin 1/2 and interacting through a non-Abelian Chern-Simons field. We calculate the one-loop scattering amplitude for both the nonrelativistic and also for the relativistic theory. In the relativistic case we introduce an intermediate cutoff, separating the regions with low and high loop momenta integration. In this procedure purely relativistic field theory effects as the vacuum polarization and anomalous magnetic moment corrections are automatically incorporated.

    We investigate the bright-to-dark exciton conversion efficiency in type-II quantum dots subject to a perpendicular magnetic field. To this end, we take the exciton storage protocol recently proposed by Simonin and co-workers [Phys. Rev. B 89, 075304 (2014)] and simulate its coherent dynamics. We confirm the storage is efficient in perfectly circular structures subject to weak external electric fields, where adiabatic evolution is dominant. In practice, however, the efficiency rapidly degrades with symmetry lowering. Besides, the use of excited states is likely unfeasible owing to the fast decay rates. We then propose an adaptation of the protocol which does not suffer from these limitations.

    This paper addresses the scattering of a beam of charged particles by an infinitely long magnetic string in the context of the hydrodynamical approach to quantum mechanics. The scattering is qualitatively analyzed by two approaches. In the first approach, the quantum flow is studied via a one-parameter family of complex potentials. In the second approach, the qualitative theory of planar differential equations is used to obtain a one-parameter family of Hamiltonian functions which determine the phase portraits of the systems.

    We have measured the flux dependence of both the real and the imaginary conductance of GaAs/GaAlAs isolated mesoscopic rings at 310 MHz. The rings are coupled to a highly sensitive electromagnetic superconducting microresonator and lead to a perturbation of the resonance frequency and quality factor. This experiment provides a new tool for the investigation of the conductance of mesoscopic systems without the need for invasive probes. The results obtained can be compared with recent theoretical predictions emphasizing the differences between isolated and connected geometries and the relation between ac conductance and persistent currents.

The well-resolved absorption spectra from the E11 transitions in the PFO-samples showed a clear A-A splitting. The electro-magnetic flux compression method was used for generation of the field up to 360 T, where the absorption spectra of the E22 transition of the HiPco samples were measured by the streak spectroscopy. Parameters for the A-A splitting were determined for different chiralty of each case.

Through the two four-vector potential formulation of electromagnetic theory, we construct a EM duality formulation for both A-B effect and A-C effect. The He-McKellar-Wilkens(HMW) effect is included as a EM duality counterpart of the A-C effect, and also the EM duality counterpart of the A-B effect is also predicted.

    In 1958, a revolutionary paper by Aharonov and Bohm predicted a phase difference between two parts of an electron wavefunction even when being confined to a regime with no EM field. The Aharonov-Bohm effect was groundbreaking: proving that the EM vector potential is a real physical quantity, affecting the outcome of experiments not only through the EM fields extracted from it. But is the EM potential a real necessity for an Aharonov-Bohm-type effect? Can it exist in a potential-free system such as free-space? Here, we find self-accelerating wavepackets that are solutions of the free Dirac equation, for massive/massless fermions/bosons. These accelerating Dirac particles mimic the dynamics of a free-charge moving under a ``virtual'' EM field, even though no field is acting and there is no charge: the entire dynamics is a direct result of the initial conditions. We show that such particles display an effective Aharonov-Bohm effect caused by exactly the same ``virtual'' potential that also ``causes'' the acceleration. Altogether, along the trajectory, there is no way to distinguish between a real force and the self-induced force - it is real by all measurable quantities. This proves that one can create all effects induced by EM fields by only controlling the initial conditions of a wave pattern, while the dynamics is in free-space. These phenomena can be observed in various settings: e.g., optical waves in honeycomb photonic lattices or in hyperbolic metamaterials, and matter waves in honeycomb interference structures.

As graphene is a gapless semiconductor, this geometry allows to study the unique situation of quantum interference between electrons and holes in addition to the unipolar quantum interference. The period and amplitude of the observed Aharonov-Bohm oscillations are independent of the sign of the applied gate voltage showing the equivalence between unipolar and dipolar interference.

    We review the role of the momentum of the electromagnetic (EM) fields P e in several areas of modern physics. P e represents the EM interaction in equations for matter and light waves propagation. As an application of wave propagation properties, a first order optical experiment which tests the speed of light in moving rarefied gases is presented. Within a classical context, the momentum P e appears also in proposed tests of EM interactions involving open currents and angular momentum conservation laws. Moreover, P e is the link to the unitary vision of the quantum effects of the Aharonov-Bohm (AB) type and, for several of these effects, the strength of P e is evaluated. These effects provide a quantum approach to evaluate the limit of the photon mass m ph. A new effect of the AB type, together with the scalar AB effect, provides the basis for table-top experiments which yield the limit m ph = 9.4 × 10-52g, a value that improves the results achieved with recent classical and quantum approaches.

  11. Theory of phase-sensitive measurement of photon-assisted tunneling through a quantum dot

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Jauho, A. P.; Wingreen, Ned S.

    1998-10-01

    Recent double-slit interference experiments [Schuster et al., Nature (London) 385, 417 (1997)] have demonstrated the possibility of probing the phase of the complex transmission coefficient of a quantum dot via the Aharonov-Bohm effect. We propose an extension of these experiments: an ac voltage imposed on the side gate with the concomitant photonic sidebands leads to additional structure both in the amplitude and in the phase of the Aharonov-Bohm signal. Observation of these effects would be a definitive proof of coherent absorption and reemission of photons from the ac source.

  12. Aharonov-Casher effect in massive-photon electrodynamics

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Fuchs, Christopher

    1990-10-01

    In concurrence with a recent calculation for the Aharonov-Bohm effect by Boulware and Deser, it is shown that the Aharonov-Casher phase shift for a neutral magnetic dipole diffracted around a uniform infinitely long line charge still occurs in massive-photon electrodynamics. This effect reduces smoothly to the original in the limit that the photon mass vanishes. Unlike the case for the Aharonov-Bohm effect, however, the neutral particle has no classical acceleration regardless of the photon mass. This demonstrates the existence of pure nonlocal effects for nongauge fields.

    In high magnetic fields, the exciton absorption spectrum of a semiconducting single-walled carbon nanotube splits as a result of Aharonov-Bohm magnetic flux. A magnetic field of 370 T, generated by the electromagnetic flux compression destructive pulsed magnet-coil technique, was applied to single-chirality semiconducting carbon nanotubes. Using streak spectroscopy, we demonstrated the separation of the independent band-edge exciton states at the K and K' points of the Brillouin zone after the mixing of the dark and bright states above 150 T. These results enable a quantitative discussion of the whole picture of the Aharonov-Bohm effect in single-walled carbon nanotubes.

  14. Charge-fluctuation-induced dephasing in a gated mesoscopic interferometer

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Seelig, Georg; Büttiker, Markus

    2001-12-01

    The reduction of the amplitude of Aharonov-Bohm oscillations in a ballistic one-channel mesoscopic interferometer due to charge fluctuations is investigated. In the arrangement considered the interferometer has four terminals and is coupled to macroscopic metallic side gates. The Aharonov-Bohm oscillation amplitude is calculated as a function of temperature and the strength of coupling between the ring and the side gates. The resulting dephasing rate is linear in temperature in agreement with recent experiments. Our derivation emphasizes the relationship between dephasing, ac-transport, and charge fluctuations.

    Many attempts have been made to determine a sound forecasting method regarding earthquakes and warn the public in turn. Presently, the animal kingdom leads the precursor list alluding to a transmission related source. By applying the animal-based model to an electromagnetic (EM) wave model, various hypotheses were formed, but the most interesting one required the use of a magnetometer with a differing design and geometry. To date, numerous, high-end magnetometers have been in use in close proximity to fault zones for potential earthquake forecasting; however, something is still amiss. The problem still resides with what exactly is forecastable and the investigating direction of EM. After the 1989 Loma Prieta Earthquake, American earthquake investigators predetermined magnetometer use and a minimum earthquake magnitude necessary for EM detection. This action was set in motion, due to the extensive damage incurred and public outrage concerning earthquake forecasting; however, the magnetometers employed, grounded or buried, are completely subject to static and electric fields and have yet to correlate to an identifiable precursor. Secondly, there is neither a networked array for finding any epicentral locations, nor have there been any attempts to find even one. This methodology needs dismissal, because it is overly complicated, subject to continuous change, and provides no response time. As for the minimum magnitude threshold, which was set at M5, this is simply higher than what modern technological advances have gained. Detection can now be achieved at approximately M1, which greatly improves forecasting chances. A propagating precursor has now been detected in both the field and laboratory. Field antenna testing conducted outside the NE Texas town of Timpson in February, 2013, detected three strong EM sources along with numerous weaker signals. The antenna had mobility, and observations were noted for recurrence, duration, and frequency response. Next, two directional techniques were employed, resulting in three mapped, potential epicenters. The remaining, weaker signals presented similar directionality results to more epicentral locations. In addition, the directional results of the Timpson field tests lead to the design and construction of a third prototype antenna. In a laboratory setting, experiments were created to fail igneous rock types within a custom-designed Faraday Cage. An antenna emplaced within the cage detected EM emissions, which were both reproducible and distinct, and the laboratory results paralleled field results. With a viable system and continuous monitoring, a fracture cycle could be established and observed in real-time. Sequentially, field data would be reviewed quickly for assessment; thus, leading to a much improved earthquake forecasting capability. The EM precursor determined by this method may surpass all prior precursor claims, and the general public will finally receive long overdue forecasting.

    Many attempts have been made to determine a sound forecasting method regarding earthquakes and warn the public in turn. Presently, the animal kingdom leads the precursor list alluding to a transmission related source. By applying the animal-based model to an electromagnetic (EM) wave model, various hypotheses were formed, but the most interesting one required the use of a magnetometer with a differing design and geometry. To date, numerous, high-end magnetometers have been in use in close proximity to fault zones for potential earthquake forecasting; however, something is still amiss. The problem still resides with what exactly is forecastable and the investigating direction of EM. After a number of custom rock experiments, two hypotheses were formed which could answer the EM wave model. The first hypothesis concerned a sufficient and continuous electron movement either by surface or penetrative flow, and the second regarded a novel approach to radio transmission. Electron flow along fracture surfaces was determined to be inadequate in creating strong EM fields, because rock has a very high electrical resistance making it a high quality insulator. Penetrative flow could not be corroborated as well, because it was discovered that rock was absorbing and confining electrons to a very thin skin depth. Radio wave transmission and detection worked with every single test administered. This hypothesis was reviewed for propagating, long-wave generation with sufficient amplitude, and the capability of penetrating solid rock. Additionally, fracture spaces, either air or ion-filled, can facilitate this concept from great depths and allow for surficial detection. A few propagating precursor signals have been detected in the field occurring with associated phases using custom-built loop antennae. Field testing was conducted in Southern California from 2006-2011, and outside the NE Texas town of Timpson in February, 2013. The antennae have mobility and observations were noted for recurrence, duration, and frequency response. At the Southern California field sites, one loop antenna was positioned for omni-directional reception and also detected a strong First Schumann Resonance; however, additional Schumann Resonances were absent. At the Timpson, TX field sites, loop antennae were positioned for directional reception, due to earthquake-induced, hydraulic fracturing activity currently conducted by the oil and gas industry. Two strong signals, one moderately strong signal, and approximately 6-8 weaker signals were detected in the immediate vicinity. The three stronger signals were mapped by a biangulation technique, followed by a triangulation technique for confirmation. This was the first antenna mapping technique ever performed for determining possible earthquake epicenters. Six and a half months later, Timpson experienced two M4 (M4.1 and M4.3) earthquakes on September 2, 2013 followed by a M2.4 earthquake three days later, all occurring at a depth of five kilometers. The Timpson earthquake activity now has a cyclical rate and a forecast was given to the proper authorities. As a result, the Southern California and Timpson, TX field results led to an improved design and construction of a third prototype antenna. With a loop antenna array, a viable communication system, and continuous monitoring, a full fracture cycle can be established and observed in real-time. In addition, field data could be reviewed quickly for assessment and lead to a much more improved earthquake forecasting capability. The EM precursors determined by this method appear to surpass all prior precursor claims, and the general public will finally receive long overdue forecasting.

  11. Observation of an Effective Magnetic field for Light

    Tzuang, Lawrence D; Nussenzveig, Paulo; Fan, Shanhui; Lipson, Michal

    2013-01-01

    Photons are neutral particles that do not interact directly with a magnetic field. However, recent theoretical work has shown that an effective magnetic field for photons can exist if the phase of light would change with its propagating direction. This direction-dependent phase indicates the presence of an effective magnetic field as shown for electrons experimentally in the Aharonov-Bohm experiment. Here we replicate this experiment using photons. In order to create this effective magnetic field, we construct an on-chip silicon-based Ramsey-type interferometer. This interferometer has been traditionally used to probe the phase of atomic states, and here we apply it to probe the phase of photonic states. We experimentally observe a phase change, i.e. an effective magnetic field flux from 0 to 2pi. In an Aharonov-Bohm configuration for electrons, considering the device geometry, this flux corresponds to an effective magnetic field of 0.2 Gauss.

    Our group has realized a Mach-Zehnder interferometer for electron matter waves and a source of femtosecond electron pulses. In the first experiment a highly collimated electron beam passes through three gold coated nano-fabricated gratings and reveals interference fringes. Measured dephasing processes poses limitations on the low energy use of this device. In the second experiment a femtosecond laser pump-probe experiment on a field emission tip was performed. Control of the electron emission mechanisms, which are multi-photon absorption and optical field tunneling, may be useful for the production of attosecond electron pulses. We will discuss the use of the first device to test the dispersionless nature of the Aharonov-Bohm effect and the use of the second device to test the macroscopic limit of the Aharonov-Bohm effect.

Finally, we propose two experimental schemes for measuring the He-McKellar-Wilkens phase.

It is shown how this confusion arises and how can one avoid it.

    We used pomegranate extract (POMx), pomegranate juice (POM juice) and green tea extract (GT) to establish in vitro activities against bacteria implicated in the pathogenesis of acne. Minimum inhibitory concentrations (MIC) of 94 <em>Propionibacterium acnes, Propionibacterium granulosum, Staphylococcus aureus,em> and <em>Staphylococcus epidermidisem> strains were determined by Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute-approved agar dilution technique. Total phenolics content of the phytochemicals was determined using the Folin-Ciocalteu method and the polyphenol composition by HPLC. Bacteria were identified by 16S rRNA sequence analysis. GT MIC of 400 ?g/ml or less was obtained for 98% of the strains tested. 64% of <em>P. acnesem> strains had POMx MICs at 50 ?g/ml whereas 36% had MIC >400 ?g/ml. POMx, POM juice, and GT showed inhibitory activity against all the <em>P. granulosumem> strains at ?100 ?g/ml. POMx and GT inhibited all the <em>S. aureusem> strains at 400 ?g/ml or below, and POM juice had an MIC of 200 ?g/ml against 17 <em>S. aureusem> strains. POMx inhibited <em>S. epidermidisem> strains at 25 ?g/ml, whereas POM juice MICs were ?200 ?g/ml. The antibacterial properties of POMx and GT on the most common bacteria associated with the development and progression of acne suggest that these extracts may offer a better preventative/therapeutic regimen with fewer side effects than those currently available.

    Analisamos o conteúdo estelar de 74 galáxias HII a partir do contínuo observado nos espectros ópticos dessas galáxias, utilizando métodos de síntese de população estelar. Descobrimos que todas as galáxias para as quais encontramos soluções contêm uma população estelar velha que domina a massa estelar, e numa maioria dessas também encontramos evidência de uma população de idade intermediaria além da geração jovem que está se formando agora. Concluímos que a formação estelar dessas galáxias se realiza em surtos individuais, Esses surtos são interrompidos por longos períodos de inatividade, com os primeiros consumindo a maior parte do gás. Sugerimos, portanto, que as galáxias HII sejam galáxias anãs normais flagradas em um período de surto.

    Emergency medical services (EMS) became an American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) approved subspecialty of emergency medicine in September 2010. Achieving specialty or subspecialty recognition in an area of medical practice requires a unique body of knowledge, a scientific basis for the practice, a significant number of physicians who dedicate a portion of their practice to the area, and a sufficient number of fellowship programs. To prepare EMS fellows for successful completion of fellowship training, a lifetime of subspecialty practice, and certification examination, a formalized structured fellowship curriculum is necessary. A functional curriculum is one that takes the entire body of knowledge necessary to appropriately practice in the identified area and codifies it into a training blueprint to ensure that all of the items are covered over the prescribed training period. A curriculum can be as detailed as desired but typically all major headings and subheadings of the core content are identified and addressed. Common curricular components, specific to each area of the core content, include goals and objectives, implementation methods, evaluation, and outcomes assessment methods. Implementation methods can include simulation, observations, didactics, and experiential elements. Evaluation and outcomes assessment methods can include direct observation of patient assessment and treatment skills, structured patient simulations, 360° feedback, written and oral testing, and retrospective chart reviews. This paper describes a curriculum that is congruent with the current EMS core content, as well as providing a 12-month format to deploy the curriculum in an EMS fellowship program. Key words: curriculum; education; emergency medical services; fellowships and scholarships. PMID:24156509

    Complaints against Emergency Medical Services (EMS) agencies represent a concerning and potentially time-consuming problem for all involved in the delivery of prehospital emergency medical care. The objective of this study was to identify the source of complaints against an EMS system to help focus quality and performance improvement and customer service efforts. We conducted a retrospective review of complaints filed against a busy urban EMS agency over a 6-year period. All complaints were included, totaled by season and by year, and categorized by originator and nature of the complaint. A total of 286 complaints were registered during the 6-year period, with an average of 48 per year and 9.3 per 10,000 responses. The most common originators of complaints were patients (53%) followed by medical personnel (19%) and family members or friends (12%). Rude behavior accounted for 23% of the complaints registered, followed by technical skills (20%), transport problems (18%), and loss of belongings (13%). The identification of areas of dissatisfaction will allow focused quality and performance improvement programs directed at customer service and risk management. PMID:14654181

  6. Interference between two indistinguishable electrons from independent sources

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Neder, I.; Ofek, N.; Chung, Y.; Heiblum, M.; Mahalu, D.; Umansky, V.

    Very much like the ubiquitous quantum interference of a single particle with itself, quantum interference of two independent, but indistinguishable, particles is also possible. For a single particle, the interference is between the amplitudes of the particle's wavefunctions, whereas the interference between two particles is a direct result of quantum exchange statistics. Such interference is observed only in the joint probability of finding the particles in two separated detectors, after they were injected from two spatially separated and independent sources. Experimental realizations of two-particle interferometers have been proposed; in these proposals it was shown that such correlations are a direct signature of quantum entanglement between the spatial degrees of freedom of the two particles (`orbital entanglement'), even though they do not interact with each other. In optics, experiments using indistinguishable pairs of photons encountered difficulties in generating pairs of independent photons and synchronizing their arrival times; thus they have concentrated on detecting bunching of photons (bosons) by coincidence measurements. Similar experiments with electrons are rather scarce. Cross-correlation measurements between partitioned currents, emanating from one source, yielded similar information to that obtained from auto-correlation (shot noise) measurements. The proposal of ref. 3 is an electronic analogue to the historical Hanbury Brown and Twiss experiment with classical light. It is based on the electronic Mach-Zehnder interferometer that uses edge channels in the quantum Hall effect regime. Here we implement such an interferometer. We partitioned two independent and mutually incoherent electron beams into two trajectories, so that the combined four trajectories enclosed an Aharonov-Bohm flux. Although individual currents and their fluctuations (shot noise measured by auto-correlation) were found to be independent of the Aharonov-Bohm flux, the cross-correlation between current fluctuations at two opposite points across the device exhibited strong Aharonov-Bohm oscillations, suggesting orbital entanglement between the two electron beams.

    E-print Network

    R. L. Collins

    Consider the electric field E about an electron. Its source has been thought a substance called charge, enclosed within a small volume that defines the size of the electron. Scattering experiments find no size at all. Charge is useful, but mysterious. This study concludes that charge is not real. Useful, but not real. Absent real charge, the electric field must look to a different source. We know another electric field, vxB, not sourced by charge. A simple model of the electron, using EM fields only, has been found that generates an electric field vxB very like E. Gauss' law finds the model contains charge, but div vxB cannot find the charge density. The model contains a permanent magnetic flux quantum, configured as a dipole. The dipolar B fields spin around the symmetry axis, accounting for angular momentum. Spin stabilizes the magnetic flux quantum, and creates the vxB electric field. Stability in this model is dynamic. Energy is exchanged between the dipolar magnetic moment and an encircling toroidal displacement current, at the Compton frequency, mc^2/h = 1.24x10^20 Hz. The electric field undulates at this rate, instead of being static like E associated with charge. Absent any real charge, we have to abandon the notion that size of a charged particle is that of a small sack full of charge. The only electric field is vxB, and its source is not charge. What is the size of an electron? Coulomb scattering finds it point-like, but its spinning B fields extend to infinity.

  11. EMS adaptation for climate change

    The purpose of this study was to find an appropriate scenario of pre-hospital transportation of an emergency medical service (EMS) system for burdensome casualties resulting from extreme climate events. A case of natural catastrophic events in Taiwan, 88 wind-caused disasters, was reviewed and analyzed. A sequential-conveyance method was designed to shorten the casualty transportation time and to promote the efficiency of ambulance services. A proposed mobile emergency medical center was first constructed in a safe area, but nearby the disaster area. The Center consists of professional medical personnel who process the triage of incoming patients and take care of casualties with minor injuries. Ambulances in the Center were ready to sequentially convey the casualties with severer conditions to an assigned hospital that is distant from the disaster area for further treatment. The study suggests that if we could construct a spacious and well-equipped mobile emergency medical center, only a small portion of casualties would need to be transferred to distant hospitals. This would reduce the over-crowding problem in hospital ERs. First-line ambulances only reciprocated between the mobile emergency medical center and the disaster area, saving time and shortening the working distances. Second-line ambulances were highly regulated between the mobile emergency medical center and requested hospitals. The ambulance service of the sequential-conveyance method was found to be more efficient than the conventional method and was concluded to be more profitable and reasonable on paper in adapting to climate change. Therefore, additional practical work should be launched to collect more precise quantitative data.

  12. Two Approaches to Fractional Statistics in the Quantum Hall Effect: Idealizations and the Curious Case of the Anyon

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Shech, Elay

    2015-04-01

    This paper looks at the nature of idealizations and representational structures appealed to in the context of the fractional quantum Hall effect, specifically, with respect to the emergence of anyons and fractional statistics. Drawing on an analogy with the Aharonov-Bohm effect, it is suggested that the standard approach to the effects—(what we may call) the topological approach to fractional statistics—relies essentially on problematic idealizations that need to be revised in order for the theory to be explanatory. An alternative geometric approach is outlined and endorsed. Roles for idealizations in science, as well as consequences for the debate revolving around so-called essential idealizations, are discussed.

    It is shown that, in addition to the Aharonov-Bohm-like phase studied previously [M. V. Berry, Proc. R. Soc. London Ser. A 392, 45 (1984); Y. Aharakov and J. Anandan, Phys. Rev. Lett. 58, 1593 (1987); C. H. Tsai and D. Neilson, Phys. Rev. A 37, 619 (1988)], Berry's topological phase also appears for purely mechanical reasons in systems rotating at slowly-time-varying angular velocity about a fixed center. A possible experiment to probe this manifestation of Berry's phase is discussed.

    1999-08-01

    The electric field within a ring containing repulsively interacting electrons is estimated using the spinless Luttinger-liquid model extended to allow transverse excitations due to the radial centrifugal force. The radial voltage drop across a ring, threaded by the Aharonov-Bohm flux, consists of a flux-periodic part that is independent of the interaction, and a flux-independent part that is proportional to the square root of the inverse compressibility of the electron gas. The voltage drop obtained from perturbation theory is consistent with Bernoulli's equation.

  15. How to Measure Magnetic Flux with a Single Position Measurement?

    Yakir Aharonov; Eliahu Cohen

    2014-08-29

    Current methods for measuring magnetic flux are based on performing many measurements over a large ensemble of electrons. We propose a novel method for measuring the flux modulo hc/e using only a single electron. Furthermore, we show, for the first time, how to understand this result on geometric grounds when utilizing only the quantization of angular momentum. A transformation to a rotating frame of reference reveals the nonlocal effect of magnetic flux on the electron, without the need of solving the Schrodinger equation. This provides a new intuition for understanding the Aharonov-Bohm (AB) effect.

    We study the effects of the perpendicular magnetic and Aharonov—Bohm (AB) flux fields on the energy levels of a two-dimensional (2D) Klein—Gordon (KG) particle subjected to an equal scalar and vector pseudo-harmonic oscillator (PHO). We calculate the exact energy eigenvalues and normalized wave functions in terms of chemical potential parameter, magnetic field strength, AB flux field, and magnetic quantum number by means of the Nikiforov—Uvarov (NU) method. The non-relativistic limit, PHO, and harmonic oscillator solutions in the existence and absence of external fields are also obtained.

    We study scanning gate microscopy (SGM) in open quantum rings obtained from buried semiconductor InGaAs/InAlAs heterostructures. By performing a theoretical analysis based on the Keldysh-Green function approach we interpret the radial fringes observed in experiments as the effect of randomly distributed charged defects. We associate SGM conductance images with the local density of states (LDOS) of the system. We show that such an association cannot be made with the current density distribution. By varying an external magnetic field we are able to reproduce recursive quasi-classical orbits in LDOS and conductance images, which bear the same periodicity as the Aharonov-Bohm effect.

    Following our earlier gauge field theory analysis of the diffusion and interactions of classical and quantum waves with topological defects in solids (screw and edge dislocations), we present the analysis of the interaction of a classical spin wave with a screw dislocation studied within the Heisenberg ferromagnet model in which spins are located on a lattice containing dislocations. We show that the spin wave interaction with the screw dislocation shows a similarity to the Aharonov-Bohm-like deflection found previously for scattering of acoustic waves on the same type of defects.

    A cloaking theory for a two-dimensional spin-(1/2) fermion is proposed. It is shown that the spinor of the two-dimensional fermion can be cloaked perfectly through controlling the fermion's energy and mass in a specific manner moving in an effective vector potential inside a cloaking shell. Different from the cloaking of three-dimensional fermions, the scaling function that determines the invisible region is uniquely determined by a nonlinear equation. It is also shown that the efficiency of the cloaking shell is unaltered under the Aharonov-Bohm effect.

    In this work we study the interaction problem of a Dirac oscillator with gravitational fields produced by topological defects. The energy levels of the relativistic oscillator in the cosmic string and in the cosmic dislocation space-times are sensible to curvature and torsion associated to these defects and are important evidence of the influence of the topology on this system. In the presence of a localized magnetic field the energy levels acquire a term associated with the Aharonov-Bohm effect. We obtain the eigenfunctions and eigenvalues and see that in the nonrelativistic limit some results known in standard quantum mechanics are reached.

    We consider a model of hydrogen-like artificial molecule formed by two vertically coupled quantum dots in the shape of axially symmetrical thin layers with on-axis single donor impurity in each of them and with the magnetic field directed along the symmetry axis. We present numerical results for energies of some low-lying levels as functions of the magnetic field applied along the symmetry axis for different quantum dot heights, radii, and separations between them. The evolution of the Aharonov-Bohm oscillations of the energy levels with the increase of the separation between dots is analyzed. PMID:23013550

    1986-08-01

    Recently, Berry (1984) recognized in quantum mechanics a topological phase factor arising from the adiabatic transport of a system around a closed circuit, which is essentially the Aharonov-Bohm effect in parameter space. Here manifestations of this phase factor are considered for a photon in a state of adiabatically invariant helicity. An interferometer is suggested to see this phase. Also, an effective optical activity for a helical optical fiber is predicted. These effects emerge on a classical level as topological features of Maxwell's theory.

    2005-01-01

    We discuss the consequences of the Aharonov-Bohm effect in setups involving several charged particles, wherein none of the charged particles encloses a closed loop around the magnetic flux. We show that in such setups, the AB phase is encoded either in the relative phase of a bi-partite or multi-partite entangled photons states, or alternatively, gives rise to an overall AB phase that can be measured relative to another reference system. These setups involve processes of annihilation or creation of electron/hole pairs. We discuss the relevance of such effects in "vacuum Birefringence" in QED, and comment on their connection to other known effects.

    Recently the physical mechanism for geometric phase in optics has been elucidated in terms of the angular momentum holonomy proposed in 1992. Aharonov and Kaufherr (PRL, 92, 070404, 2004) revisit the Aharonov-Bohm effect, and propose non-local exchange of a conserved, gauge invariant quantity that changes the modular momentum of the particle that is responsible for the AB phase shift. We suggest that the net angular momentum shifts proposed for GP may be analogous to the shift in the modulus momentum for the AB effect. At a single photon or electron level such non-trivial, geometric effects seem to hint at a new physics.

  5. Slow wave atom interferometers for rotation sensing

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    2007-02-01

    A gyroscope based on Sagnac interferometer measures the rotation rate relative to an inertial frame of reference. Sagnac effect originally has been derived and experimentally demonstrated with optical waves. Later, matter wave based Sagnac interferometers were developed due to inherent sensitivity over a photon based system. However in any interferometer whether it is photon or matter wave based the resultant phase shift due to counter-rotating waves is independent of the wave velocity. Here we show that one can have a larger phase shift with slower matter waves using Aharonov-Bohm effect: the phase difference of the counter propagating waves is proportional to the inverse square of the particle velocity.

  6. Topological Properties of Linear Circuit Lattices

    2015-05-01

    Motivated by the topologically insulating circuit of capacitors and inductors proposed and tested by Jia et al. [arXiv:1309.0878], we present a related circuit with fewer elements per site. The normal mode frequency matrix of our circuit is unitarily equivalent to the hopping matrix of a quantum spin Hall insulator, and we identify perturbations that do not backscatter the circuit's edge modes. The idea behind these models is generalized, providing a platform to simulate tunable and locally accessible lattices with arbitrary complex spin-dependent hopping of any range. A simulation of a non-Abelian Aharonov-Bohm effect using such linear circuit designs is discussed.

    We propose a polarised intensity interferometry experiment, which measures the nonlocal Pancharatnam phase acquired by a pair of Hanbury Brown-Twiss photons. The setup involves two polarised thermal sources illuminating two polarised detectors. Varying the relative polarisation angle of the detectors introduces a two photon geometric phase. Local measurements at either detector do not reveal the effects of the phase, which is an optical analog of the multiparticle Aharonov-Bohm effect. The geometric phase sheds light on the three slit experiment and suggests ways of tuning entanglement.

    The coupling of the quantized electromagnetic field to coherent electrons is investigated. The effects both of photon emission and of the electromagnetic vacuum fluctuations upon electron interference are analyzed. The modifications of the vacuum fluctuations due to a conducting plate lead to a decrease in the amplitude of the interference oscillations. The possibility of observing this effect is discussed. It is also shown that there is an analogue of the Aharonov-Bohm effect in which electron interference is sensitive to vacuum fluctutations in regions from which the electrons are excluded.

    The physical meaning of the basic quantum mechanical concepts (such as the wave function, reduction, state preparation and measurement, the projection postulate, and the uncertainty principle) is clarified using realistic experimental procedures and employing classical analogies whenever possible. Photon polarization measurement and particle coordinate and momentum measurement are considered as examples, as also are Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen correlations, Aharonov-Bohm effects, quantum teleportation, etc. Various nonclassicality criteria of quantum models, including photon antibunching and the violation of the Bell inequality, are discussed.

    We derive the quantum rate equations for an Aharonov-Bohm interferometer with two vertically coupled quantum dots embedded in each of two arms by means of the nonequilibrium Green function in the sequential tunnelling regime. Based on these equations, we investigate time-dependent resonant tunnelling under a small amplitude irradiation and find that the resonant photon-assisted tunnelling peaks in photocurrent demonstrate a combination behaviour of Fano and Lorentzian resonances due to the interference effect between the two pathways in this parallel configuration, which is controllable by threading the magnetic flux inside this device.

    The Schrodinger motion of a charged quantum particle in an electromagnetic potential can be simulated by the paraxial dynamics of photons propagating through a spatially inhomogeneous medium. The inhomogeneity induces geometric effects that generate an artificial vector potential to which signal photons are coupled. This phenomenon can be implemented with slow light propagating through an a gas of double-Lambda atoms in an electromagnetically-induced transparency setting with spatially varied control fields. It can lead to a reduced dispersion of signal photons and a topological phase shift of Aharonov-Bohm type.

    2015-03-01

    By considering gauge transformations on the macroscopic Maxwell's equations, a two-dimensional gauge field, with its pseudomagnetic field in the real space, is identified as tilted anisotropy in the constitutive parameters. We show that the optical spin Hall effect with broadband response and one-way edge states become possible simply by using anisotropic media. The proposed gauge field also allows us to obtain unidirectional propagation for a particular pseudospin based on the Aharonov-Bohm effect. Our approach will be useful in spoof magneto-optics with arbitrary magnetic fields mimicked by metamaterials with subwavelength unit cells. It also serves as a generic way to design polarization-dependent devices.

    1992-01-01

    Maxwell's equations can be shown to imply the existence of two independent three-dimensional potential vectors. A comparison between the potential vectors and the electric and magnetic field vectors, using a spatial Fourier transformation, reveals six independent potential components but only four independent electromagnetic field components for each mode. Although the electromagnetic fields determined by Maxwell's equations give a complete description of all possible classical electromagnetic phenomena, potential vectors contains more information and allow for a description of such quantum mechanical phenomena as the Aharonov-Bohm effect. A new result is that a charged particle Lagrangian written in terms of potential vectors automatically contains a 'spontaneous symmetry breaking' potential.

    We demonstrate how to create artificial external non-Abelian gauge potentials acting on cold atoms in optical lattices. The method employs atoms with k internal states, and laser assisted state sensitive tunneling, described by unitary kxk matrices. The single-particle dynamics in the case of intense U(2) vector potentials lead to a generalized Hofstadter butterfly spectrum which shows a complex mothlike structure. We discuss the possibility to realize non-Abelian interferometry (Aharonov-Bohm effect) and to study many-body dynamics of ultracold matter in external lattice gauge fields.

    A general method for deriving exact expressions for vector potentials produced by arbitrarily knotted solenoids is presented. It consists of using simple physics ideas from magnetostatics to evaluate the magnetic field in a surrogate problem. The latter is obtained by modelling the knot with wire segments carrying steady currents on a cubical lattice. The expressions for a 31 (trefoil) and a 41 (figure-eight) knot are explicitly worked out. The results are of some importance in the study of the Aharonov-Bohm effect generalised to a situation in which charged particles moving through force-free regions are scattered by fluxes confined to the interior of knotted impenetrable tubes.

    Quantum coherent transport of surface states in a mesoscopic nanowire of the three-dimensional topological insulator Bi(2}Se(3) is studied in the weak-disorder limit. At very low temperatures, many harmonics are evidenced in the Fourier transform of Aharonov-Bohm oscillations, revealing the long phase coherence length of spin-chiral Dirac fermions. Remarkably, from their exponential temperature dependence, we infer an unusual 1/T power law for the phase coherence length L(?)(T). This decoherence is typical for quasiballistic fermions weakly coupled to their environment. PMID:23683235

We also give results for the dynamics of the current as a function of time.

    In this paper, we present a wavelet based modification of the ML-EM algorithm for reconstructing positron emission tomography images. By using the filter bank implementation of the wavelet transform, this algorithm has the flexibility to incorporate a priori information, while maintaining the same computational complexity as the standard ML-EM algorithm. Thus, it has a significant computational advantage over usual Bayesian methods. It differs from recent wavelet-based Bayesian methods as it achieves {open_quotes}regularization{close_quotes} by an adaptive, wavelet-based method of thresholding which minimizes Stein`s Unbiased Estimate of Risk. The basic method consists of applying Donoho and Johnstone`s SureShrink wavelet denoising of the Poisson data, and then applying the standard ML-EM algorithm to the denoised data. A more elaborate method is discussed in which a wavelet denoising step is inserted after each EM iteration. This technique differs from previous smoothing techniques applied to the ML-EM algorithm since it is able to recover edges in discontinuous images.

  4. Risk Communication Within the EM Program

    Edelson, M.

    The U.S. Department of Energy Environmental Management program (EM) conducts the most extensive environmental remediation effort in the world. The annual EM budgets have exceeded $6,000,000,000 for approximately ten years and EM has assumed responsibility for the cleanup of the largest DOE reservations (i.e., at Hanford, Washington, Aiken, South Carolina, and Idaho Falls, Idaho) as well as the facilities at Rocky Flats, Colorado and in Ohio. Each of these sites has areas of extensive radioactive and chemical contamination, numerous surplus facilities that require decontamination and removal, while some have special nuclear material that requires secure storage. The EM program has been criticized for being ineffective (1) and has been repeatedly reorganized to address perceived shortcomings. The most recent reorganization was announced in 2001 to become effective at the beginning of the 2003 Federal Fiscal Year (i.e., October 2002). It was preceded by a ''top to bottom'' review (TTBR) of the program (2) that identified several deficiencies that were to be corrected as a result of the reorganization. One prominent outcome of the TTBR was the identification of ''risk reduction'' as an organizing principle to prioritize the activities of the new EM program. The new program also sought to accelerate progress by identifying a set of critical activities at each site that could be accelerated and result in more rapid site closure, with attendant risk, cost, and schedule benefits. This paper investigates how the new emphasis on risk reduction in the EM program has been communicated to EM stakeholders and regulators. It focuses on the Rocky Flats Environmental Technology Site (RFETS) as a case study and finds that there is little evidence for a new emphasis on risk reduction in EM communications with RFETS stakeholders. Discussions between DOE and RFETS stakeholders often refer to ''risk,'' but the word serves as a placeholder for other concepts. Thus ''risk'' communication at RFETS is lively and involves important issues, but often does not inform participants about true ''risk reduction.''

    1996-07-01

    The application of crosshole EM methods through steel well-casing was investigated in theoretical, laboratory and field studies. A numerical code was developed that calculates the attenuation and phase delay of an EM dipole signal propagated through a steel well casing lodged in a homogeneous medium. The code was validated with a scale model and used for sensitivity studies of casing and formation properties. Finally, field measurements were made in an oil field undergoing waterflooding. Our most important findings are that (1) crosshole surveys are feasible using a well pair with one metallic and one non-metallic casing. (2) The casing effect seems be localized within the pipe section that includes the sensor. (3) The effects of the casing can be corrected using simple means and (4) crosshole field data that are sensitive to both formation and casing were acquired in a working environment.

    O telescópio de patrulhamento solar é um instrumento dedicado à observação de explosões solares com início de suas operações em janeiro de 2002, trabalhando próximo ao pico de emissão do espectro girossincrotrônico (12 GHz). Trata-se de um arranjo de três antenas concebido para a detecção de explosões e determinação em tempo real da localização da região emissora. Porém, desde sua implementação em uma montagem equatorial movimentada por um sistema de rotação constante (15 graus/hora) o rastreio apresentou pequenas variações de velocidade e folgas nas caixas de engrenagens. Assim, tornou-se necessária a construção de um sistema de correção automática do apontamento que era de fundamental importância para os objetivos do projeto. No segundo semestre de 2002 empreendemos uma série de tarefas com o objetivo de automatizar completamente o rastreio, a calibração, a aquisição de dados, controle de ganhos, offsets e transferência dos dados pela internet através de um projeto custeado pela FAPESP. O rastreio automático é realizado através de um inversor que controla a freqüência da rede de alimentação do motor de rastreio podendo fazer micro-correções na direção leste-oeste conforme os radiômetros desta direção detectem uma variação relativa do sinal. Foi adicionado também um motor na direção da declinação para correção automática da variação da direção norte-sul. Após a implementação deste sistema a precisão do rastreio melhorou para um desvio máximo de 30 segundos de arco, o que está muito bom para este projeto. O Telescópio se encontra em funcionamento automático desde março de 2003 e já conta com várias explosões observadas após a conclusão desta fase de automação. Estamos apresentando as explosões mais intensas do período e com as suas respectivas posições no disco solar.

  12. Helicopter EMS: Research Endpoints and Potential Benefits

    PubMed Central

    Thomas, Stephen H.; Arthur, Annette O.

    2012-01-01

    Patients, EMS systems, and healthcare regions benefit from Helicopter EMS (HEMS) utilization. This article discusses these benefits in terms of specific endpoints utilized in research projects. The endpoint of interest, be it primary, secondary, or surrogate, is important to understand in the deployment of HEMS resources or in planning further HEMS outcomes research. The most important outcomes are those which show potential benefits to the patients, such as functional survival, pain relief, and earlier ALS care. Case reports are also important “outcomes” publications. The benefits of HEMS in the rural setting is the ability to provide timely access to Level I or Level II trauma centers and in nontrauma, interfacility transport of cardiac, stroke, and even sepsis patients. Many HEMS crews have pharmacologic and procedural capabilities that bring a different level of care to a trauma scene or small referring hospital, especially in the rural setting. Regional healthcare and EMS system's benefit from HEMS by their capability to extend the advanced level of care throughout a region, provide a “backup” for areas with limited ALS coverage, minimize transport times, make available direct transport to specialized centers, and offer flexibility of transport in overloaded hospital systems.

  13. Cyclotron braid group structure for composite fermions.

    PubMed

    Jacak, J; Jó?wiak, I; Jacak, L; Wieczorek, K

    2010-09-01

    Although they describe properties of 2D Hall systems in the fractional quantum regime well, composite fermions suffer from the unexplained character of the localized magnetic field flux-tubes attached to each particle in order to reproduce the Laughlin correlations via Aharonov-Bohm phase shifts. The identification of the cyclotron trajectories of 2D charged particles as accessible classical trajectories within the braid group approach at the magnetic field presence, allows, however, for the avoidance of the construction with fluxes. We introduce cyclotron braid subgroups for charged 2D systems at the fractional Landau-level filling associated in a more natural way with composite fermions without invoking field flux-tubes. The Aharonov-Bohm phase shifts caused by fluxes are replaced with the phase gain due to multi-loop cyclotron trajectories unavoidably occurring at the fractional filling of 1/p (p is an odd integer). Another approach to composite particles, using so-called vortices, is also discussed from the point of view of the cyclotron braid group description (for both odd and even p integers). PMID:21403293

  14. Self-accelerating Dirac particles and prolonging the lifetime of relativistic fermions

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Kaminer, Ido; Nemirovsky, Jonathan; Rechtsman, Mikael; Bekenstein, Rivka; Segev, Mordechai

    2015-03-01

    The Aharonov-Bohm effect predicts that two parts of the electron wavefunction can accumulate a phase difference even when they are confined to a region in space with zero electromagnetic field. Here we show that engineering the wavefunction of electrons, as accelerating shape-invariant solutions of the potential-free Dirac equation, fundamentally acts as a force and the electrons accumulate an Aharonov-Bohm-type phase--which is equivalent to a change in the proper time and is related to the twin-paradox gedanken experiment. This implies that fundamental relativistic effects such as length contraction and time dilation can be engineered by properly tailoring the initial conditions. As an example, we suggest the possibility of extending the lifetime of decaying particles, such as an unstable hydrogen isotope, or altering other decay processes. We find these shape-preserving Dirac wavefunctions to be part of a family of accelerating quantum particles, which includes massive/massless fermions/bosons of any spin.

  15. Surface-sensitive two-dimensional magneto-fingerprint in mesoscopic Bi2Se3 channels.

    PubMed

    Kandala, Abhinav; Richardella, Anthony; Zhang, Duming; Flanagan, Thomas C; Samarth, Nitin

    2013-06-12

    Periodic Aharonov–Bohm and Altshuler–Aronov–Spivak oscillations have traditionally been observed in lateral transport through patterned mesoscopic loops of diffusive conductors. However, our studies of perpendicular-to-plane magnetotransport in straight-channel, diffusive devices of epitaxial Bi2Se3 surprisingly reveal signatures of Aharonov–Bohm orbits, periodic conductance fluctuation magneto-fingerprints, even though the devices are not explicitly patterned into loops. We show that the length scale of these orbits corresponds to the typical perimeter of triangular terraces found on the surface of these thin film devices, strongly suggesting that the periodic magneto-fingerprint arises from coherent scattering of electron waves from the step-edges. Our interpretation is bolstered by control measurements in devices without such surface morphology that only show a conventional, aperiodic magneto-fingerprint. These results show that lithographically patterned Bi2Se3 devices provide a novel class of mesoscopic physical systems for systematic studies of coherent surface sensitive transport. PMID:23642037

    Development of an Emergency Medical Services (EMS) system is a challenging task for administrators, government agencies, and politicians. Factors such as the political climate, governmental support, and monetary resources heavily influence and shape the development of an EMS system. There are various systems in place to meet the functional needs and abilities of different regions while maintaining the basic principle of providing fast attention to those in need, and transportation to a definitive care facility. In this report, we describe the current Dutch EMS system in Amsterdam and the methods of daily pre-hospital health care delivery used, while exploring its potential applicability in developing nations. The Dutch EMS system is a nurse-driven triage system, both at the dispatch level and at the treatment level. Of the approximate yearly 165,000 calls received at the dispatch center, 40% of the requests were triaged based on national protocols such that no emergency ambulance dispatching was necessary. Furthermore, 30% of patients were treated at the scene, and did not subsequently require emergency transport to a definitive care facility. PMID:16434351

    Modern digital radio systems are complex and must be carefully designed, especially when expected to operate in harsh propagation environments. The ability to accurately predict the effects of propagation on wireless radio performance could lead to more efficient radio designs as well as the ability to perform vulnerability analyses before and after system deployment. In this report, the authors--experts in electromagnetic (EM) modeling and wireless communication theory--describe the construction of a simulation environment that is capable of quantifying the effects of wireless propagation on the performance of digital communication.

  10. Communication - An Effective Tool for Implementing ISO 14001/EMS

    The Idaho National Engineering and Environmental Laboratory (INEEL) received ISO 14001/EMS certification in June 2002. Communication played an effective role in implementing ISO 14001/EMS at the INEEL. This paper describes communication strategies used during the implementation and certification processes. The INEEL achieved Integrated Safety Management System (ISMS) and Voluntary Protection Program (VPP) Star status in 2001. ISMS implemented a formal process to plan and execute work. VPP facilitated worker involvement by establishing geographic units at various facilities with employee points of contact and management champions. The INEEL Environmental Management System (EMS) was developed to integrate the environmental functional area into its ISMS and VPP. Since the core functions of ISMS, VPP, and EMS are interchangeable, they were easy to integrate. Communication is essential to successfully implement an EMS. (According to ISO 14001 requirements, communication interacts with 12 other elements of the requirements.) We developed communication strategies that integrated ISMS, VPP, and EMS. For example, the ISMS, VPP, and EMS Web sites communicated messages to the work force, such as “VPP emphasizes the people side of doing business, ISMS emphasizes the system side of doing business, and EMS emphasizes the systems to protect the environment; but they all define work, identify and analyze hazards, and mitigate the hazards.” As a result of this integration, the work force supported and implemented the EMS. In addition, the INEEL established a cross-functional communication team to assist with implementing the EMS. The team included members from the Training and Communication organizations, VPP office, Pollution Prevention, Employee and Media Relations, a union representative, facility environmental support, and EMS staff. This crossfunctional team used various communication strategies to promote our EMS to all organization levels and successfully implemented EMS activities through VPP geographic units. In summary, the ISMS and VPP process at the INEEL provided the basic framework of management support and worker involvement to implement our EMS. A cross-functional communication team was established to facilitate the implementation with great success. Communication has been an effective tool for implementing an ISO 14001/EMS at the INEEL.

    A remarkable property of the Chinese hamster ovary mutant EM9 is its very high baseline frequency of sister-chromatid exchange (SCE), about 110 per cell. EM9 is also hypersensitive (7-fold) to the induction of SCE by EMS. The high baseline SCE frequency in EM9 appears to be the result of a single mutational event. DNA replication in EM9 and AA8 was studied using pulse labeling and alkaline elution. After a 1 hour labeling period, the majority of the labeled DNA elutes rapidly indicating the small size of the nascent single-stranded molecules. In the absence of BradUrd substitution more than 50% of the labeled DNA is retained on the filter after a 1 hour chase.

    2008-03-01

    The problem of extracting continuous structures from images is a difficult issue in early pattern recognition and image processing. Tracking with contours in a filtering framework requires a dynamical model for prediction. Recently, Particle filter, is widely used because its multiple hypotheses and versatility within framework. However, the good choice of the propagation function is still its main problem. In this paper, an improved particle filter, EM-PF algorithm is proposed which using the EM (Expectation-Maximization) algorithm to learn the dynamical models. The EM algorithm can explicitly learn the parameters of the dynamical models from training sequences. The advantage of using the EM algorithm in particle filter is that it is capable of improve tracking contour by having accurate model parameters. Though the experiment results, we show how our EM-PF can be applied to produces more robust and accurate extracting.

    Hanford performance at fiscal year end reflects a three percent unfavorable schedule variance ($46.3 million*) which was an improvement over August 1995 ($46.3 million for September versus $65.9 million for August) and is below established reporting thresholds (greater than 3 percent). The majority of the behind schedule condition (53 percent) is attributed to EM-40 (Office of Environmental Restoration [ER]) and is a result of late receipt of funds, procurement delays, and US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) work planned but not accomplished. Other primary contributors to the behind schedule condition are associated with tank farm upgrades, high-level waste disposal and work for others (support to the US Department of Energy-Headquarters [DOE-HQ]). The remaining behind schedule condition is distributed throughout the remaining Hanford programs and do not share common causes. A breakdown of individuals listed on page 8.

    Reports of occupationally transmitted hepatitis B virus (HBV) and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) prompted the Portland Bureau of Fire Rescue and Emergency Services (PFB) to institute a comprehensive program for handling and tracking on-the-job infectious disease exposures. Data were collected for a 2-year period beginning January 1, 1988, and ending December 31, 1989, utilizing verbal and written exposure reports, prehospital care reports, and PFB statistical information. Two hundred and fifty-six (256) exposures were categorized. The overall incidence of reported exposure was 4.4/1,000 emergency medical service (EMS) calls. Of these exposures, 14 (5.5%) were needle sticks, 15 (5.9%) were eye splashes, 8 (3.1%) were mucous membrane exposures, 38 (14.8%) were exposure to nonintact skin, 120 (46.9%) were exposures to intact skin, and 61 (23.8%) involved respiratory exposure only. The incidence of exposure of nonintact skin or mucous membranes to blood or body fluids and needle sticks was 1.3/1,000 EMS calls. Forty-eight individuals (64% of those incurring needle sticks, or exposure of non-intact skin or mucous membranes to blood or body fluids) were treated and followed for signs of infection. Of this group, 11 individuals (26%) previously vaccinated against hepatitis B demonstrated inadequate HBsAb titers at the time of exposure. Requests for HIV and HBV information on source patients were made for needle sticks or exposure of nonintact skin or mucous membranes to blood or high-risk body fluids. Information on the source patient's HIV status was obtained for 57% of these requests.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS) PMID:8445190
