A thin-film Fabry–Perot superconducting resonator is used to reveal the Little and Parks ͑LP͒ effect ͓Phys. Rev. Lett. 9, 9 ͑1962͔͒, even at temperatures much lower than the critical temperature. A pair of parallel nanowires is incorporated into the resonator at the point of the supercurrent antinode. As the magnetic field is ramped, Meissner currents(More)
The perception of the environment using opto-acoustic scene analysis techniques [1] is an extremely important and challenging task for humanoid robots. Thereby, the acquisition of visual and acoustic information provides the basis of the perception and enables the robot to interact with humans and to assist in everyday tasks. Another step is the exploration(More)
In this paper, we consider the general problem of assessing accuracy losses associated with converting distributions from one representation to the other. Based on distribution theory, we argue that any such quality metric is intrinsically problem-specific, and that the choice of the so-called probe functions is unavoidable. We discuss the meaning of these(More)
