New publication: “A nanofabricated, monolithic, path-separated electron interferometer”
We describe a modular, self-aligned, amplitude-division electron interferometer in a conventional transmission electron microscope. The interferometer consists of two 45-nm-thick silicon layers separated by 20 μm. This interferometer is fabricated from... Read more >>

New publication: “Single-photon imager based on a superconducting nanowire delay line”
We demonstrate a scalable single-photon imager using a single continuous superconducting nanowire that is not only a single-photon detector but also functions as an efficient microwave delay line. In this... Read more >>

New publication: “A nanocryotron comparator can connect single-flux-quantum circuits to conventional electronics”
We demonstrate the use of a single three-terminal superconducting-nanowire device, called the nanocryotron (nTron), as a digital comparator to combine SFQ circuits with mature semiconductor circuits such as complementary metal... Read more >>

New publication: “Photoemission from Plasmonic Nanoparticles”
We demonstrate strong-field, carrier-envelope-phase-sensitive photoemission from arrays of tailored metallic nanoparticles, and we show the influence of the nanoparticle geometry and the plasmon resonance on the phase-sensitive response. Additionally, from... Read more >>
