Atomic "bomb testing": The Elitzur-Vaidman experiment violates the Leggett-Garg inequality (2018)
Book Chapter
Robens, C., Alt, W., Emary, C., Meschede, D., & Alberti, A. (2018). Atomic "bomb testing": The Elitzur-Vaidman experiment violates the Leggett-Garg inequality. In Exploring the World with the Laser: Dedicated to Theodor Hänsch on his 75th Birthday, 141-157. Springer International Publishing. doi:10.1007/978-3-319-64346-5_10

Elitzur and Vaidman have proposed a measurement scheme that, based on the quantum superposition principle, allows one to detect the presence of an object—in a dramatic scenario, a bomb—without interacting with it. It was pointed out by Ghirardi that... Read More

Galactic chemical evolution (2017)
Book Chapter
Mollá, M., Cavichia, O., Costa, R. D. D. D., Gibson, B. K., & Díaz, Á. I. (in press). Galactic chemical evolution. In Highlights of Spanish astrophysics IXSociedad Española de Astronomía

We analyze the evolution of oxygen abundance radial gradients resulting from our chemical evolution models calculated with different prescriptions for the star formation rate (SFR) and for the gas infall rate, in order to assess their respective role... Read More

On the expectation of operator norms of random matrices (2017)
Book Chapter
Guédon, O., Hinrichs, A., Litvak, A. E., & Prochno, J. (2017). On the expectation of operator norms of random matrices. In Lecture Notes in Mathematics; Geometric Aspects of Functional Analysis, 151-162. Springer International Publishing. doi:10.1007/978-3-319-45282-1_10

We prove estimates for the expected value of operator norms of Gaussian random matrices with independent (but not necessarily identically distributed) and centered entries, acting as operators from ℓnp∗ to ℓ q m , 1 ≤ p∗ ≤ 2 ≤ q  Read More

Feedback control in quantum transport (2016)
Book Chapter
Emary, C. (2016). Feedback control in quantum transport. In Understanding Complex Systems; Control of Self-Organizing Nonlinear Systems, 275-287. Springer International Publishing. doi:10.1007/978-3-319-28028-8_14

Quantum transport is the study of the motion of electrons through nano-scale structures small enough that quantum effects are important. In this contribution I review recent theoretical proposals to use the techniques of quantum feedback control to m... Read More

E-services and the digital divide: The role of tertiary education in improving public engagement and trust in e-delivery of services (2010)
Book Chapter
Gordon, N. A. (2010). E-services and the digital divide: The role of tertiary education in improving public engagement and trust in e-delivery of services. Handbook of Research on E-Services in the Public Sector: E-Government Strategies and Advancements, 244-250. Information Science Reference. https://doi.org/10.4018/978-1-61520-789-3.ch019

This chapter considers aspects relating to the role of tertiary (i.e. higher) education in improving the engagement of the public with government provided E-services. Some of the issues considered include those of tackling the digital divide - which... Read More

Laboratory-Based Observations of Behaviour in Northern Krill (Meganyctiphanes norvegica Sars) (2010)
Book Chapter
Gaten, E., Wiese, K., & Johnson, M. L. (2010). Laboratory-Based Observations of Behaviour in Northern Krill (Meganyctiphanes norvegica Sars). In Advances in Marine Biology, 231-253. Elsevier. doi:10.1016/B978-0-12-381308-4.00008-X

The behaviour of planktonic animals remains poorly understood due to the difficulty of observing them in situ without influencing their behaviour. Here we review experiments on the behavioural responses of Northern krill, Meganyctiphanes norvegica (a... Read More

L-band-related interband transition in InSb/GaSb self-assembled quantum dots (2008)
Book Chapter
Rybchenko, S. I., Gupta, R., Itskevich, I. E., & Haywood, S. K. (2008). L-band-related interband transition in InSb/GaSb self-assembled quantum dots. Springer Proceedings in Physics; Narrow Gap Semiconductors 2007, 81-83. Springer Verlag. doi:10.1007/978-1-4020-8425-6_20

Effect of lattice-mismatch-induced strain on Γ-, X- and L-conduction-band edges in III-V self-assembled quantum dots has been calculated. The misfit strain is shown to strongly affect the band edges, leading to a possibility of Γ-L and &G... Read More
