      Nano-antennae assisted emission of extreme ultraviolet radiation (pages 119–134)

      Nils Pfullmann, Monika Noack, José Cardoso de Andrade, Stefan Rausch, Tamas Nagy, Carsten Reinhardt, Vanessa Knittel, Rudolf Bratschitsch, Alfred Leitenstorfer, Dieter Akemeier, Andreas Hütten, Milutin Kovacev and Uwe Morgner

      Version of Record online: 10 MAR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/andp.201400021

      High-order harmonic generation in xenon with oscillator repetition rates is studied. The necessary intensity is reached via plasmonic field enhancement at nanostructured arrays of bow-tie gold antennae. The theoretical analysis focuses on the thermal properties and the damage threshold of the bow-tie antennae. On the experimental side the number of contributing atoms is determined and optimized.

      Light wave driven electron dynamics in clusters (pages 135–156)

      Version of Record online: 14 MAR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/andp.201490001

      The dynamics of solid-density nanoplasmas driven by intense lasers takes place in the strongly-coupled plasma regime, where collisions play an important role. The microscopic particle-in-cell method has enabled the complete classical electromagnetic description of these processes. The theoretical foundation of the approach and its relation to existing methods are reviewed.

      Femtosecond petawatt laser (pages 157–172)

      Tae Moon Jeong and Jongmin Lee

      Version of Record online: 9 JAN 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/andp.201300192

      Abstract

      An all-Ti:sapphire-based 30-fs PW CPA laser (Petawatt Ultrashort Laser System for Extreme Science Research) has been recently constructed and is being used for accelerating the charged particles (electrons and protons) and generating ultrashort high-energy photon sources. In this review, world-wide PW-level femtosecond laser systems are summarized and the performances are described.

      The role of virtual photons in nanoscale photonics (pages 173–186)

      David L. Andrews and David S. Bradshaw

      Version of Record online: 6 JAN 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/andp.201300219

      Abstract

      Nanoscale photonics exhibits the quantum nature of matter and the radiation field. For example the Casimir force, crucial in nanoelectromechanical systems, owes its origin to short-lived virtual photons created from vacuum. An extensive range of other nanophotonic interactions also involves such coupling. Examples include optical binding, non-parametric optical frequency-conversion and light-harvesting materials. Current research directions indicate a variety of further applications.

    1. Rashba coupling induced by Lorentz symmetry breaking effects (pages 187–194)

      Knut Bakke and Humberto Belich

      Version of Record online: 23 DEC 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/andp.201300186

      The arising of a Rashba-like coupling, a Zeeman-like term and a Darwin-like term induced by Lorentz symmetry breaking effects in the non-relativistic quantum dynamics of a spin-1/2 neutral particle interacting with external fields is studied.

    2. On the uniqueness of the Dirac theory in curved and flat spacetime (pages 195–200)

      Mikhail V. Gorbatenko and Vasily P. Neznamov

      Version of Record online: 12 FEB 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/andp.201300218

      In this work a number of examples are used to illustrate uniqueness of physical prediction of the Dirac theory in a curved and a flat spacetime. Dirac Hamiltonians in arbitrary, including time-dependent, gravitational fields uniquely determine physical characteristics of quantum-mechanical systems irrespective of the choice of the tetrad fields.

    1. Uniaxial magnetic anisotropy in epitaxial α-Fe(h0ℓ) films (pages L1–L5)

      Yutian Wang, Fengzhen Lv, Oliver Brandt, Jens Herfort, Cunxu Gao and Desheng Xue

      Version of Record online: 12 FEB 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/andp.201300231

      The magnetic anisotropy of epitaxial, high-index Fe(inline image) films is investigated. The strength of the in-plane uniaxial magnetic anisotropy increases monotonically with the inclination angle φ between Fe(001) and Fe(inline image). This increase is demonstrated to be caused by the cubic magnetocrystalline anisotropy and not by surface- or interface-related effects.
