The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is sensitive to new heavy gauge bosons that produce narrow peaks in the dilepton invariant mass spectrum up to about mZ5TeV Zs that are too heavy to produce directly can reveal their presence through interference with standard model dilepton production. We show t...

A key question concerning the three-body fragmentation of polyatomic molecules is the distinction of sequential and concerted mechanisms, i.e., the stepwise or simultaneous cleavage of bonds. Using laser-driven fragmentation of OCS into O++C++S+ and employing coincidence momentum imaging, we demonst...

We describe a broadly applicable experimental proposal to search for the violation of local Lorentz invariance (LLI) with atomic systems. The new scheme uses dynamic decoupling and can be implemented in current atomic clock experiments, with both single ions and arrays of neutral atoms. Moreover, th...

The first direct experimental measurements of the scattering of a millimeter-wave beam by plasma blobs in a simple magnetized torus are reported. The wavelength of the beam is comparable to the characteristic size of the blob. In situ Langmuir probe measurements show that fluctuations of the electro...

Long wavelength vibrational modes in the ferromagnetic semiconductor Ga0.91Mn0.09As are investigated using time resolved x-ray diffraction. At room temperature, we measure oscillations in the x-ray diffraction intensity corresponding to coherent vibrational modes with well-defined wavelengths. When ...

Nonequilibrium chemical redistribution in open systems submitted to external forces, such as particle irradiation, leads to changes in the structural properties of the material, potentially driving the system to failure. Such redistribution is controlled by the complex interplay between the producti...

When a d-dimensional quantum system is subjected to a periodic drive, it may be treated as a (d+1)-dimensional system, where the extra dimension is a synthetic one. This approach, however, affords only a limited level of control of the effective potential along the synthetic direction. In this work,...

We study chemically gated bilayer graphene using scanning tunneling microscopy and spectroscopy complemented by tight-binding calculations. Gating is achieved by intercalating Cs between bilayer graphene and Ir(111), thereby shifting the conduction band minima below the chemical potential. Scatterin...

The absence of the negative sign problem in quantum Monte Carlo simulations of spin and fermion systems has different origins. World-line based algorithms for spins require positivity of matrix elements whereas auxiliary field approaches for fermions depend on symmetries such as particle-hole symmet...

This is the sixth episode in the SmartHotel360 series, which was used in the keynotes and general sessions at Connect() last November, and is available on GitHub.

In this episode, Brady Gaster talks with Mikkel Hegnhoj from the Azure Service Fabric team about how SmartHotel360 modernized an existing, internal application, by moving it into Azure Service Fabric.

SmartHotel360 is a fictitious smart hospitality company showcasing the future of connected travel:  

  • The heart of this application is Azure and the code is built using a microservice oriented architecture orchestrated with multiple Docker containers. 
  • The public website is where hotel guests can book a room, smart conference rooms, and even include their accompanying family travelers and their pets!
  • SmartHotel360 offers a fully-native cross-device mobile app for guests and business travelers built with Xamarin. Guests and business travelers can book rooms and smart conference rooms as well as customize room temperature and lighting settings.
  • Travelers need quick access to their rooms. We included NFC access from the SmartHotel360 traveler application and we also created a digital door application to check-in and open your room.
  • Mixed reality apps provide hotel management the ability to visualize data and review proposed changes to the hotel lobby by using both HoloLens and the latest in immersive headsets.

On this episode of On.NET, Microsoft Cloud Developer Advocate, Jeremy Likness, is joined by Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP), Josh Lane, to discuss .NET Core and Containers. Josh and Jeremy discuss what containers are and how they fit into modern DevOps pipelines, then walk through the integrated tools in Visual Studio 2017 that assist developers with creating and debugging containers as well as publishing them to Azure via Azure Container Registry and Azure Web Apps for Containers.

  • [00:44] - What are some of advantages of containers?
  • [01:14] - How do containers compare to other hosting options?
  • [04:14] - Demo of Visual Studio tooling for containers
  • [07:06] - Deploying your container to Azure

Near the horizon, the obvious symmetries of a black hole spacetime—the horizon-preserving diffeomorphisms—are enhanced to a larger symmetry group with a three-dimensional Bondi-Metzner-Sachs algebra. Using dimensional reduction and covariant phase space techniques, I investigate this augmented symme...

Experiments on confined droplets of the nematic liquid crystal 5CB have questioned long-established bounds imposed on the elastic free energy of nematic systems. This elasticity, which derives from molecular alignment within nematic systems, is quantified through a set of moduli which can be difficu...
