We report the accuracy of the photonic crystal model in describing the characteristics of vertical cavity surface-emitting lasers with lateral optical confinement consisting of a periodic array of etched circular holes. Experiments were carried out to compare predictions of the photonic crystal model to observed modal device characteristics, and the oxide(More)
Here, we report the experimental observation of a dynamical quantum phase transition in a strongly interacting open photonic system. The system studied, comprising a Jaynes-Cummings dimer realized on a superconducting circuit platform, exhibits a dissipation-driven localization transition. Signatures of the transition in the homodyne signal and photon(More)
The molecular structures of cobalt- and nickel-substituted concanavalin A have been refined at 1.6 and 2.0 A resolution, respectively. Both metal derivatives crystallize in space group I222 with approximate cell dimensions a = 89, b = 87 and c = 63 A and one monomer in the asymmetric unit. The final R factor for Co-substituted concanavalin A is 17.8% for 29(More)
SUMMARY Recent progress and achievements in creating single fundamental mode vertical cavity lasers with the technique of etching a 2-dimensional pattern of photonic crystal holes into the top distributed Bragg reflector are described. A simulation method for the design of single mode lasers is described, along with accuracy and limitations in predicting(More)
In this article, we describe a series of complexes with electron-rich cis-{Ru(II)(NH(3))(4)}(2+) centers coordinated to two pyridyl ligands bearing N-methyl/arylpyridinium electron-acceptor groups. These V-shaped dipolar species are new, extended members of a class of chromophores first reported by us (Coe, B. J. et al. J. Am. Chem. Soc. 2005, 127,(More)
This paper reports on the efficacy of (F(o) - F(c)) versus (2F(o) - F(c)) electron-density maps at 3.2 A resolution. Firstly, a study is reported of a simple truncation at 2.3 and 3.2 A of the 1.6 A resolution crystal structure of concanavalin A at room temperature [Emmerich et al. (1994), Acta Cryst. D50, 749-756] with 149 known bound water molecules.(More)
The synthetic biology toolbox lacks extendable and conformationally controllable yet easy-to-synthesize building blocks that are long enough to span membranes. To meet this need, an iterative synthesis of α-aminoisobutyric acid (Aib) oligomers was used to create a library of homologous rigid-rod 310-helical foldamers, which have incrementally increasing(More)
In the title compound, [Ir(C11H8N)2(C28H20N8)](PF6)3·3CH3CN or [Ir(III)(ppy)2{(2-pym)2qpy(2+)}](PF6)3·3CH3CN (ppy = deprotonated 2-phenyl-pyridine, pym = pyrimidyl and qpy = 4,4':2',2'':4'',4'''-quaterpyrid-yl), the Ir(3+) cation is coordinated by two C atoms and four N atoms in a slightly distorted octa-hedral geometry. The asymmetric unit consists of one(More)
A generic approach to the regiospecific synthesis of halogenated polycyclic aromatics is made possible by the one- or two-directional benzannulation reactions of readily available (ortho-allylaryl)trichloroacetates (the "BHQ" reaction). Palladium-catalysed cross-coupling reactions of the so-formed haloaromatics enable the synthesis of functionalised(More)
