Summary of "Improved Test of Local Lorentz Invariance from a Deterministic Preparation of Entangled States."

The high degree of control available over individual atoms enables precision tests of fundamental physical concepts. In this Letter, we experimentally study how precision measurements can be improved by preparing entangled states immune to the dominant source of decoherence. Using ^{40}Ca^{+} ions, we explicitly demonstrate the advantage from entanglement on a precision test of local Lorentz invariance for the electron. Reaching the quantum projection noise limit set by quantum mechanics, we observe, for bipartite entangled states, the expected gain of a factor of two in the precision. Under specific conditions, multipartite entangled states may yield substantial further improvements. Our measurements improve the previous best limit for local Lorentz invariance of the electron using ^{40}Ca^{+} ions by a factor of two to four to about 5×10^{-19}.

Lorentz Nanoplasmonics for Nonlinear Generation.

While past works have suggested that the Lorentz magnetic contribution to second harmonic generation from metal nanostructures is negligible as compared to other terms, here we demonstrate a dominant ...

Normal and Anomalous Diffusion in Soft Lorentz Gases.

Motivated by electronic transport in graphenelike structures, we study the diffusion of a classical point particle in Fermi potentials situated on a triangular lattice. We call this system a soft Lore...

Weyl Invariance of String Theories in Generalized Supergravity Backgrounds.

We revisit Weyl invariance string theories in generalized supergravity backgrounds. A possible counterterm was constructed in a work by Sakamoto, Sakatani, and Yoshida, but it seems to be a point of c...

Method of measuring the bactericidal activity contained in a patient's serum as a result of antimicrobial therapy. It is used to monitor the therapy in BACTERIAL ENDOCARDITIS; OSTEOMYELITIS and other serious bacterial infections. As commonly performed, the test is a variation of the broth dilution test. This test needs to be distinguished from testing of the naturally occurring BLOOD BACTERICIDAL ACTIVITY.
