  • Borsten, L.; Bradler, Kamil; Duff, M. J. (Societa Italiana di Fisica, 2015-08)
    Superqubits provide a supersymmetric generalisation of the conventional qubit in quantum information theory. After a review of their current status, we address the problem of generating entangled states. We introduce the ...

    The first conclusive evidence of a dipole resonance in 11Li having isoscalar character observed from inelastic scattering with a novel solid deuteron target is reported. The experiment was performed at the newly commissioned ...

    Background: In the absence of accurate data on the free two-body hyperon-nucleon interaction, the spectra of hypernuclei provides information on the details of the effective hyperon-nucleon interaction. Purpose: To ...

    Measurements of forward exclusive meson production at different squared four-momenta of the exchanged virtual photon, Q[superscript 2], and at different four-momentum transfer, t, can be used to probe QCD’s transition from ...

    The first data on target and beam-target asymmetries for the [gamma] p [right arrow] [pi superscript 0][eta] p reaction at photon energies from 1050 up to 1450 MeV are presented. The measurements were performed using the ...

    Differential cross sections for the [gamma]p[right arrow][pi superscript 0]p reaction have been measured with the A2 tagged-photon facilities at the Mainz Microtron, MAMI C, up to the center-of mass energy W = 1.9 GeV. The ...

  • Bradler, Kamil (World Scientific Publishing, 2015)
    To decide whether a quantum channel is degradable is relatively easy: one has to find at least one example of a degrading quantum channel. But in general, no conclusive criterion exists to show the opposite. Using elementary ...

  • Bonson, K.; Gallo, Luigi C.; Vasudevan, R. (Oxford University Press, 2015-06-11)
    A multi-epoch, multi-instrument analysis of the Seyfert 1 galaxy HE 0436–4717 is conducted using optical to X-ray data from XMM–Newton and Swift (including the Burst Alert Telescope). Fitting of the UV-to-X-ray spectral ...

  • Wilkins, D. R.; Gallo, Luigi C.; Grupe, D.; Bonson, K.; Komossa, S.; Fabian, A. C. (Oxford University Press, 2015-12-21)
    Monitoring of the narrowline Seyfert 1 galaxy Markarian 335 (Mrk 335) with the Swift satellite discovered an X-ray flare beginning 2014 August 29. At the peak, the 0.5–5 keV count rate had increased from that in the low-flux ...

  • Wilkins, D. R.; Gallo, Luigi C. (Oxford University Press, 2015-03-21)
    We consider the Comptonization of the photons that make up the relativistically blurred reflection that is commonly detected from the accretion discs of active galactic nuclei by the coronae of energetic particles believed ...

  • Wilkins, D. R.; Gallo, Luigi C. (Oxford University Press, 2015-05-01)
    Variations in the X-ray emission from the narrow-line Seyfert 1 galaxy, Markarian 335, are studied on both long and short time-scales through observations made between 2006 and 2013 with XMM–Newton, Suzaku and NuSTAR. ...

  • Houlihan, Ron (Emerald Group, 2005)

  • Robertson, D. R. S.; Gallo, Luigi C.; Zoghbi, A.; Fabian, A. C. (Oxford University Press, 2015-09-09)
    We examine simultaneous X-ray and UV light curves from multi-epoch 8 d XMM–Newton observations of the narrow line Seyfert 1 galaxy 1H 0707–495. The simultaneous observations reveal that both X-ray and UV emission are ...

    We report on the deepest X-ray observation of the narrow-line Seyfert 1 galaxy Mrk 335 in the low-flux state obtained with Suzaku. The data are compared to a 2006 high-flux Suzaku observation when the source was ∼10 times ...
