Bandwidth-limited few-cycle pulses by nonlinear compression in a dispersion-alternating fiber

Niklas M. Lüpken, Carsten Fallnich
2020 Applied physics B  
We show that nonlinear Schrödinger equation simulations were in good agreement with the experimental results and investigated the transfer of input fluctuations to the output.  ...  The concept is transferable to longer input pulse durations, resulting in compression factors of 83 for 10 ps input pulses.  ...  Bennett and Corning Inc. for providing the dispersion-compensating fiber.  ...

Coherent control of group index and magneto-optical anisotropy in a multilevel atomic vapor

Andreas Lampis, Robert Culver, Balázs Megyeri, Jon Goldwin
2016 Optics Express  
Using the beat note between co-propagating coupling and probe beams, we perform a heterodyne measurement of the circular dichroism (and therefore birefringence) of the EIT medium.  ...  A longitudinal magnetic field is used to split the EIT feature and induce magnetooptical anisotropy.  ...  Brannan for the loan of the mu-metal shielding, and A.

Bernhard Riemann, the Ear, and an Atom of Consciousness

Andrew Bell, Bryn Davies, Habib Ammari
2021 Foundations of Science  
For Riemann, hearing was a unitary physical and mental event, and parallels with modern ideas about consciousness and quantum biology are made.  ...  A unifying quantum mechanical model for an atom of consciousness—drawing on Riemann's mind-masses and the similar "psychons" proposed by Eccles—is put forward.  ...  If they are two separate planes of existence, how is it possible for the noncorporeal mind to act on hard matter and, in reverse, how can solid matter affect the nonmaterial mind?  ...
