Microscopic Imaging Ellipsometry is an optical technique that uses an objective and sensing procedure to measure the ellipsometric parameters {\Psi} and {\Delta} in the form of microscopic maps. This technique is well known for being non-invasive and label-free. Therefore it can be used to detect and characterize biological species without any impact. Read More

We convert a GeV laser-plasma electron accelerator into a compact femtosecond-pulsed $\gamma$-ray source by inserting a $100 \mu$m-thick glass plate $\sim3$ cm after the accelerator exit. With near-unity reliability, and requiring only crude alignment, this glass plasma mirror retro-reflected spent drive laser pulses (photon energy $\hbar\omega_L = 1.17$ eV) with $>50\%$ efficiency back onto trailing electrons (peak Lorentz factor $1000 < \gamma_e < 4400$), creating an optical undulator that generated $\sim10^8 \gamma$-ray photons with sub-mrad divergence, estimated peak brilliance $\sim10^{21}$ photons/s/mm$^2$/mrad$^2$/$0.

A decomposition of $K_{n(g)}\setminus L$, the complete n-partite equipartite graph with a subgraph L (called the leave) removed, into edge disjoint copies of a graph G is called a maximum group divisible packing of $K_{n(g)}$ with G if L contains as few edges as possible. We examine all possible minimum leaves for maximum group divisible $(K_4-e)$-packings. Necessary and sufficient conditions are established for their existences. Read More

Watching a 360{\deg} sports video requires a viewer to continuously select a viewing angle, either through a sequence of mouse clicks or head movements. To relieve the viewer from this "360 piloting" task, we propose "deep 360 pilot" -- a deep learning-based agent for piloting through 360{\deg} sports videos automatically. At each frame, the agent observes a panoramic image and has the knowledge of previously selected viewing angles. Read More

Transport of fluid through a pipe is essential for the operation of macroscale machines and microfluidic devices. Conventional fluids only flow in response to external pressure. We demonstrate that an active isotropic fluid, comprised of microtubules and molecular motors, autonomously flows through meter-long three-dimensional channels. Read More

The celebrated Time Hierarchy Theorem for Turing machines states, informally, that more problems can be solved given more time. The extent to which a time hierarchy-type theorem holds in the distributed LOCAL model has been open for many years. It is consistent with previous results that all natural problems in the LOCAL model can be classified according to a small constant number of complexities, such as $O(1),O(\log^* n), O(\log n), 2^{O(\sqrt{\log n})}$, etc. Read More

An algorithm for factoring polynomials over finite fields is given by Berlekamp in 1967. The main tool was the matrix Q corresponding to each polynomial. This paper studies the degrees of polynomials over binary field that associated with their corresponding matrices Q and irreducibility. Read More

The Daya Bay experiment has observed correlations between reactor core fuel evolution and changes in the reactor antineutrino flux and energy spectrum. Four antineutrino detectors in two experimental halls were used to identify 2.2 million inverse beta decays (IBDs) over 1230 days spanning multiple fuel cycles for each of six 2. Read More

Ag$_5$Pb$_2$O$_6$ has attracted considerable attention due to its novel nearly-free-electron superconductivity, but its electronic structure and orbital character of the Cooper-pair electrons remain controversial. Here, we present a method utilizing core-level photoemission to show that Pb 6$s$ electrons dominate near the Fermi level. We observe a strongly asymmetric Pb 4$f_{7/2}$ core-level spectrum, while a Ag 3$d_{5/2}$ spectrum is well explained by two symmetric peaks. Read More

Reciprocity in directed networks points to user's willingness to return favors in building mutual interactions. High reciprocity has been widely observed in many directed social media networks such as following relations in Twitter and Tumblr. Therefore, reciprocal relations between users are often regarded as a basic mechanism to create stable social ties and play a crucial role in the formation and evolution of networks. Read More

Spin current generated by spin Hall effect in the heavy metal would diffuse up and down to adjacent ferromagnetic layers and exert torque on their magnetization, called spin-orbit torque. Antiferromagnetically coupled trilayers, namely the so-called synthetic antiferromagnets (SAF), are usually employed to serve as the pinned layer of spintronic devices based on spin valves and magnetic tunnel junctions to reduce the stray field and/or increase the pinning field. Here we investigate the spin-orbit torque in MgO/CoFeB/Ta/CoFeB/MgO perpendicularly magnetized multilayer with interlayer antiferromagnetic coupling. Read More

Recent experiments on quantum criticality in the Ge-substituted heavy-electron material YbRh2Si2 under magnetic field have revealed a possible non-Fermi liquid (NFL) strange metal (SM) state over a finite range of fields at low temperatures, which still remains a puzzle. In the SM region, the zero-field antiferromagnetism is suppressed. Above a critical field, it gives way to a heavy Fermi liquid with Kondo correlation. Read More

We study the scattering of photons by a two-level system ultrastrongly coupled to a one-dimensional waveguide. Using a combination of the polaron transformation with scattering theory we can compute the one-photon scattering properties of the qubit for a broad range of coupling strengths, estimating resonance frequencies, lineshapes and linewidths. We validate numerically and analytically the accuracy of this technique up to $\alpha=0. Read More

It is theoretically demonstrated that the figure of merit ($ZT$) of quantum dot (QD) junctions can be significantly enhanced when the degree of degeneracy of the energy levels involved in electron transport is increased. The theory is based on the the Green-function approach in the Coulomb blockade regime by including all correlation functions resulting from electron-electron interactions associated with the degenerate levels ($L$). We found that electrical conductance ($G_e$) as well as electron thermal conductance ($\kappa_e$) are highly dependent on the level degeneracy ($L$), whereas the Seebeck coefficient ($S$) is not.

We measure the stellar mass function (SMF) of galaxies in the COSMOS field up to $z\sim6$. We select them in the near-IR bands of the COSMOS2015 catalogue, which includes ultra-deep photometry from UltraVISTA-DR2, SPLASH, and Subaru/Hyper-SuprimeCam. At $z>2. Read More

The Andreev conductance across 2d normal metal (N)/superconductor (SC) junctions with relativistic Dirac spectrum is investigated theoretically in the Blonder-Tinkham-Klapwijk formalism. It is shown that for relativistic materials, due to the Klein tunneling instead of impurity potentials, the local strain in the junction is the key factor that determines the transparency of the junction. The local strain is shown to generate an effective Dirac $\delta$-gauge field. Read More

This paper gives a construction of group divisible designs on the binary extension fields with block sizes 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7, respectively, which is motivated from the decoding of binary quadratic residue codes. A conjecture is proposed for this construction of group divisible designs with larger block sizes. Read More

The nonlinear electron and heat currents of quantum dot molecules (QDMs) under a temperature bias are theoretically investigated, including all correlation functions arising from electron Coulomb interactions in QDMs. Unlike the case of double QDs, the maximum efficiency of serially coupled triple QDs (SCTQD) occurs in the orbital depletion regime owing to the interdot Coulomb blockade. The electron current in SCTQD shows a bipolar oscillatory behavior with respect to the variation of QD energy levels, whereas the heat current does not show such a behavior. Read More

Using the composite boson (coboson) many-body formalism, we determine under which conditions "trion-polariton" can exist. Dipolar attraction can bind an exciton and an electron into a trion having an energy well separated from the exciton energy. Yet, the existence of long-lived "trion-polariton" is a priori implausible not only because the photon-trion coupling, which scales as the inverse of the sample volume, is vanishingly small, but mostly because this coupling is intrinsically "weak". Read More

Using the composite boson many-body formalism that takes single-exciton states rather than free carrier states as a basis, we derive the integral equation fulfilled by the exciton-exciton effective scattering from which the role of fermion exchanges can be unraveled. For excitons made of $(\pm1/2)$-spin electrons and $(\pm3/2)$-spin holes, as in GaAs heterostructures, one major result is that most spin configurations lead to brightness-conserving scatterings with equal amplitude $\Delta$, in spite of the fact that they involve different carrier exchanges. A brightness-changing channel also exists when two opposite-spin excitons scatter: dark excitons $(2,-2)$ can end either in the same dark states with an amplitude $\Delta_e$, or in opposite-spin bright states $(1,-1)$, with a different amplitude $\Delta_o$, the number of carrier exchanges being even or odd respectively.

We present a structural study of 182 obscured Active Galactic Nuclei (AGNs) at z<=1.5, selected in the COSMOS field from their extreme infrared to X-ray luminosity ratio and their negligible emission at optical wavelengths. We fit optical to far-infrared spectral energy distributions and analyze deep HST imaging to derive the physical and morphological properties of their host galaxies. Read More

We prove a weak law of large numbers for the capacity of the range of simple random walks on $\mathbb{Z}^{4}$. On $\mathbb{Z}^{3}$, we show that the capacity, properly scaled, converges in distribution towards the corresponding quantity for three dimensional Brownian motion. Read More

In the quest for advanced propulsion and power-generation systems, a new design methodology is needed that combines engineering physics, computer simulations and statistical modeling. Unfortunately, high-fidelity simulations are too computationally expensive to survey the desired design space. In this paper, we propose a new surrogate model that provides efficient prediction and uncertainty quantification of turbulent flows in swirl injectors with varying geometries, devices commonly used in many engineering applications.

Synchronized bursts (SBs) with complex structures are common in neuronal cultures. Although the origin of SBs is still unclear, they have been studied for their information processing capabilities. Here, we investigate the properties of these SBs in a culture on multi-electrode array system. Read More

Encryption is a vital tool of information technology protecting our data in the world with ubiquitous computers. While photons are regarded as ideal information carriers, it is a must to implement such data protection on all-optical storage. However, the intrinsic risk of data breaches in existing schemes of photonic memory was never addressed. Read More

A measurement of electron antineutrino oscillation by the Daya Bay Reactor Neutrino Experiment is described in detail. Six 2.9-GW$_{\rm th}$ nuclear power reactors of the Daya Bay and Ling Ao nuclear power facilities served as intense sources of $\overline{\nu}_{e}$'s. Read More

We derive the scattering length of composite bosons (cobosons) within the framework of the composite boson many-body formalism that uses correlated-pair states as a basis, instead of free fermion states. The integral equation constructed from this physically relevant basis makes transparent the role of fermion exchange in the coboson-coboson effective scattering. Three potentials used for Cooper pairs, fermionic-atom dimers, and semiconductor excitons are considered. Read More

Energy is often the most constrained resource for battery-powered wireless devices and the lion's share of energy is often spent on transceiver usage (sending/receiving packets), not on computation. In this paper we study the energy complexity of LeaderElection and ApproximateCounting in several models of wireless radio networks. It turns out that energy complexity is very sensitive to whether the devices can generate random bits and their ability to detect collisions. Read More

A direct search of $\gamma$-ray emission centered on multi-frequency selected candidates is a valuable complementary approach to the standard search adopted in current $\gamma$-ray Fermi-LAT catalogs. Our candidates are part of the 2WHSP sample, that was assembled with the aim of providing targets for Imaging Atmospheric Cherenkov Telescopes (IACT), and is currently the largest set of high synchrotron peaked (HSP) blazars. We perform a likelihood analysis with the Fermi Science Tools using positions from 400 2WHSP blazars as seeds of tentative $\gamma$-ray sources. Read More

The conventional approach to scaling Software Defined Networking (SDN) controllers today is to partition switches based on network topology, with each partition being controlled by a single physical controller, running all SDN applications. However, topological partitioning is limited by the fact that (i) performance of latency-sensitive (e.g. Read More

Aims. High Synchrotron Peaked blazars (HSPs) dominate the -ray sky at energies larger than a few GeV; however, only a few hundred blazars of this type have been catalogued so far. In this paper we present the 2WHSP sample, the largest and most complete list of HSP blazars available to date, which is an expansion of the 1WHSP catalog of gamma-ray source candidates off the Galactic plane.

In this work, we utilize the framework of compressed sensing (CS) for distributed device detection and resource allocation in large-scale machine-to-machine (M2M) communication networks. The devices deployed in the network are partitioned into clusters according to some pre-defined criteria. Moreover, the devices in each cluster are assigned a unique signature of a particular design that can be used to indicate their active status to the network. Read More

We use Richardson-Gaudin exact equations to derive the ground-state energy of $N$ composite bosons (cobosons) interacting via a potential which acts between fermion pairs having zero center-of-mass momentum, that is, a potential similar to the reduced BCS potential used in conventional superconductivity. Through a density expansion, we show that while, for 2D systems, the $N$-coboson correlation energy undergoes a surprising cancellation which leaves the interaction part with a $N(N-1)$ dependence only, such a cancellation does not exist in 1D, 3D, and 4D systems --- which corresponds to 2D parabolic traps --- nor when the cobosons interact via a similar short-range potential but between pairs having an arbitrary center-of-mass momentum. This shows that the previously-found cancellation which exists for the Cooper-pair correlation energy results not only from the very peculiar form of the reduced BCS potential, but also from a quite mysterious dimensionality effect, the density of states for Cooper pairs feeling the BCS potential being essentially constant, as for 2D systems.

Recently, $\alpha$-$\textrm{RuCl}_3$ has attracted much attention as a possible material realization of the honeycomb Kitaev model, which may stabilize a quantum-spin-liquid state. Compared to extensive studies on its magnetic properties, there is still a lack of understanding on its electronic structure, which is strongly related with its Kitaev physics. Here, the electronic structure of $\alpha$-$\textrm{RuCl}_3$ is investigated by photoemission (PE) and inverse photoemission (IPE) spectroscopies. Read More

Machine learning methods are used to discover complex nonlinear relationships in biological and medical data. However, sophisticated learning models are computationally unfeasible for data with millions of features. Here we introduce the first feature selection method for nonlinear learning problems that can scale up to large, ultra-high dimensional biological data. Read More

The disappearance of reactor $\bar{\nu}_e$ observed by the Daya Bay experiment is examined in the framework of a model in which the neutrino is described by a wave packet with a relative intrinsic momentum dispersion $\sigma_\text{rel}$. Three pairs of nuclear reactors and eight antineutrino detectors, each with good energy resolution, distributed among three experimental halls, supply a high-statistics sample of $\bar{\nu}_e$ acquired at nine different baselines. This provides a unique platform to test the effects which arise from the wave packet treatment of neutrino oscillation. Read More

The increasing popularity of real-world recommender systems produces data continuously and rapidly, and it becomes more realistic to study recommender systems under streaming scenarios. Data streams present distinct properties such as temporally ordered, continuous and high-velocity, which poses tremendous challenges to traditional recommender systems. In this paper, we investigate the problem of recommendation with stream inputs. Read More

Understanding human actions in wild videos is an important task with a broad range of applications. In this paper we propose a novel approach named Hierarchical Attention Network (HAN), which enables to incorporate static spatial information, short-term motion information and long-term video temporal structures for complex human action understanding. Compared to recent convolutional neural network based approaches, HAN has following advantages (1) HAN can efficiently capture video temporal structures in a longer range; (2) HAN is able to reveal temporal transitions between frame chunks with different time steps, i.

Searches for a light sterile neutrino have been performed independently by the MINOS and the Daya Bay experiments using the muon (anti)neutrino and electron antineutrino disappearance channels, respectively. In this Letter, results from both experiments are combined with those from the Bugey-3 reactor neutrino experiment to constrain oscillations into light sterile neutrinos. The three experiments are sensitive to complementary regions of parameter space, enabling the combined analysis to probe regions allowed by the LSND and MiniBooNE experiments in a minimally extended four-neutrino flavor framework.

In the coming years, usage of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) is expected to grow tremendously. Maintaining security of UAVs under cyber attacks is an important yet challenging task, as these attacks are often erratic and difficult to predict. Secure estimation problems study how to estimate the states of a dynamical system from a set of noisy and maliciously corrupted sensor measurements. Read More

We propose a new random pruning method (called "submodular sparsification (SS)") to reduce the cost of submodular maximization. The pruning is applied via a "submodularity graph" over the $n$ ground elements, where each directed edge is associated with a pairwise dependency defined by the submodular function. In each step, SS prunes a $1-1/\sqrt{c}$ (for $c>1$) fraction of the nodes using weights on edges computed based on only a small number ($O(\log n)$) of randomly sampled nodes. Read More

Most companies' new business practices are based on customer data. These practices have raised privacy concerns because of the associated risks. Privacy laws require companies to gain customer consent before using their information, which stands as the biggest roadblock to monetise this asset. Read More

Let $W_{\overline{1}}$ and $H_{\overline{0}}$ denote the odd parts of the general Witt modular Lie superalgebra $W$ and the even parts of the Hamiltonian Lie superalgebra $H$ over a field of characteristic $p>3$, respectively. We give a torus of $H_{\overline{0}}$ and the weight space decomposition of the special subalgebra of $W_{\overline{1}}$ with respect to the torus. By means of the derivations of the weight 0 and three series of outer derivations from $H_{\overline{0}}$ into $W_{\overline{1}}$, the derivations from the even parts of Hamiltonian superalgebra to the odd parts of Witt superalgebra are determined.

In this work we present silicon process compatible, stable and reliable ($>10^{8}$cycles), high non-linearity ratio at half-read voltage ($>5\times 10^{5}$), high speed ($<60ns$) low operating voltage ($<2V$) back-to-back Schottky diodes. Materials choice of electrode, thickness of semiconductor layer and doping level are investigated by numerical simulation, experiments and current-voltage equations to give a general design consideration when back-to-back Schottky diodes are used as selector device for Resistive Random Access Memory(RRAM) arrays.

We present the COSMOS2015 catalog which contains precise photometric redshifts and stellar masses for more than half a million objects over the 2deg$^{2}$ COSMOS field. Including new $YJHK_{\rm s}$ images from the UltraVISTA-DR2 survey, $Y$-band from Subaru/Hyper-Suprime-Cam and infrared data from the Spitzer Large Area Survey with the Hyper-Suprime-Cam Spitzer legacy program, this near-infrared-selected catalog is highly optimized for the study of galaxy evolution and environments in the early Universe. To maximise catalog completeness for bluer objects and at higher redshifts, objects have been detected on a $\chi^{2}$ sum of the $YJHK_{\rm s}$ and $z^{++}$ images. Read More
