    1. The osgood criterion and finite-time cosmological singularities

      Determining whether a cosmological solution to Einstein's field equations has any finite-time singularities is of considerable importance. Scenarios such as a “big crunch" and other ultimate fate of the universe possibilities are examples of such finite-time singularities. In this paper, a criterion is established that allows one to easily detect such finite-time singularities.

      The main purpose of this work is to propose a possible connection between the non-relativistic regime of Dirac’s equation, investigated in a scenario with anisotropy, and the physics of the Spin Hall Effect.

    1. Bismuth telluride topological insulator nanosheet saturable absorbers for q-switched mode-locked Tm:ZBLAN waveguide lasers

      Xiantao Jiang, Simon Gross, Han Zhang, Zhinan Guo, Michael J. Withford and Alexander Fuerbach

      Version of Record online: 28 APR 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/andp.201600014

      Novel saturable absobers for ultrashort-pulsed operation of mid-infrared waveguide chip lasers have been fabricated by depositing multiple layers of nanosheets of topological insulator material onto a glass substrate. By optimizing the number of spin coating layers, highly stable Q-switched mode-locked pulse trains have been generated in an external-cavity Thulium-ZBLAN depressed-cladding waveguide laser. These results pave the way for the realization of fully integrated ultrashort-pulsed chip lasers in the mid-infrared.

    2. Nonlinear arcsin-electrodynamics and asymptotic Reissner-Nordström black holes

      S. I. Kruglov

      Version of Record online: 26 APR 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/andp.201600027

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      A new model of nonlinear arcsin-electrodynamics with a dimensional parameter β is proposed. It was shown that in the model under consideration the scale invariance and dual invariance of electromagnetic fields are broken. In the limit when β approaches to zero arcsin-electrodynamics is converted into Maxwell's electrodynamics and the scale and dual invariances are recovered. The effect of coupling electromagnetic fields with the gravitational field is investigated. The asymptotic black hole solution is found which is similar to the Reissner-Nordström solution. Corrections to Coulomb's law and to the Reissner-Nordström solution are obtained. The existence of the regular asymptotic at big distances from the black hole was demonstrated. The mass of the black hole is calculated and is treated as the electromagnetic energy. It was shown that there are not superluminal fluctuations and principles of causality and unitarity take place.

    3. Accelerating spontaneous emission in open resonators

      Strength of light-matter interactions and radiative dynamics of emitters could be controlled with structuring of electromagnetic environment. While local and cross density of electromagnetic states are routinely used for predicting total and radiative decay rates in the weak coupling regime, resonant nanostructures offer going beyond this description, giving rise to new phenomena. The manuscript presents quantum formalism for describing light-matter interactions in vicinity of open nano-resonators.

    4. Nonlinear optical characteristics of monolayer MoSe2

      Chinh Tam Le, Daniel J. Clark, Farman Ullah, Velusamy Senthilkumar, Joon I. Jang, Yumin Sim, Maeng-Je Seong, Koo-Hyun Chung, Hyoyeol Park and Yong Soo Kim

      Version of Record online: 1 APR 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/andp.201600006

      A high second-order susceptibility and strong laser-induced damage threshold of two-step grown MoSe2 monolayer is reported. This superior nonlinear optical behavior is attributed to its electronic band structure modification when transition metal dichalcogenides (MX2) are thinned down to the monolayer regime. Futher, wavelength-dependent second harmonic scan can identify the bound excitonic states much more efficiently, compared with the PL method at room temperature.

    5. BEC Dynamics in a Double-Well with Interferometric Feedback

      Version of Record online: 31 MAR 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/andp.201500313

      The feedback control scheme for a Bose-Einstein condensate in a double-well trapping potential located in one arm of Mach-Zehnder interferometer (MZI) is investigated. The parameters of the trapping potential are controlled via a feedback loop based on the measured output of the MZI. Significant modifications of the stationary populations of the wells are predicted. These distributions can effectively be controlled by the tunable phase shift in the other arm of the MZI.

    6. Bound states and Cooper pairs of molecules in 2D optical lattices bilayer

      A. Camacho-Guardian, G. A. Domínguez-Castro and R. Paredes

      Version of Record online: 31 MAR 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/andp.201500342

      Formation of Cooper pairs, bound dimeric states and dimer-dimer scattering is investigated in Fermi molecules confined in a 2D optical lattice bilayer array. While Cooper pairs are addressed as in the original formulation, bound dimeric states are investigated in a variational way. An analytic expression for the dimer-dimer effective interaction in the deep BEC regime is found. This study is a route to address the entire BCS-BEC crossover both theoretically and experimentally.

    7. Magnetic quantum criticality in quasi-one-dimensional Heisenberg antiferromagnet Cu (C4H4N2)( NO 3)2

      V. R. Shaginyan, V. A. Stephanovich, K. G. Popov, E. V. Kirichenko and S. A. Artamonov

      Version of Record online: 31 MAR 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/andp.201500352

      The experimentally observed thermodynamic properties of the 1D Heisenberg antiferromagnet Cu(C4H4N2)(NO3)2 (CuPzN) are so unusual that nobody expects that it might belong to the class of heavy-fermion compounds. Here we propose the theory which permits to reveal the latter resemblance and construct for the first time the phase diagram, that contains Fermi liquid, crossover and non Fermi liquid parts.

    1. Towards intrinsic phonon transport in single-layer MoS2

      Bo Peng, Hao Zhang, Hezhu Shao, Yuanfeng Xu, Xiangchao Zhang and Heyuan Zhu

      The present work calculates the thermal conductivity of isotopically pure and naturally occurring single-layer (SL) MoS2 using the Boltzmann transport equation for phonons. The lattice dynamics properties, the scattering mechanism and the size dependence of thermal conductivity in SL MoS2 are investigated in details.

    2. Nonlinear selective reflection spectroscopy of V-type atomic system at the gas-solid interface

      Tengfei Meng, Zhonghua Ji, Dianqiang Su, Yanting Zhao, Liantuan Xiao and Suotang Jia

      The nonlinear selective reflection (SR) spectroscopy of V-type atomic system at gas-solid interface is analyzed. Saturation and coherence effects are distinguished in the absence and presence of density matrix element between two excited levels. SR spectroscopy as a function of pump field intensity, frequency detuning and coherent decay rate induced by collision between atoms are investigated. The lineshape is explained based on SR spectroscopy contributed from atoms with negative and positive velocities, single-phonon and two-photon processes.

    3. Analytic soliton solutions of cubic-quintic Ginzburg-Landau equation with variable nonlinearity and spectral filtering in fiber lasers

      Four families (kink solitons, gray solitons, Y-type solitons and combined solitons) of exact soliton solutions for the variable-coefficient cubic-quintic complex Ginzburg-Landau equation are obtained. The influences of nonlinearity and spectral filtering effect are discussed. Methods to amplify the amplitude and compress the width of solitons are put forward, with numerical simulations being added.

    4. Spectroscopy of rotating linear dilaton black holes from boxed quasinormal modes

      Bekenstein conjectured that black hole area should be quantized in discrete levels (equidistant) to account for the quantized entropy. We show that when a non-asymptotically flat rotating black hole filled with dilaton and axion fields (strong candidates for the dark matter/energy) is caged by a scalar cloud, the resulting boxed quasinormal modes support Bekenstein's conjecture when Maggiore's adiabatic invariant formula is employed.
