A 14nm logic technology using 2 nd-generation FinFET transistors with a novel subfin doping technique, self-aligned double patterning (SADP) for critical patterning layers, and air-gapped interconnects at performance-critical layers is described. The transistors feature rectangular fins with 8nm fin width and 42nm fin height, 4 th generation high-k metal(More)
One of the key characteristics of stem cells is their capacity to divide for long periods of time in an environment where most of the cells are quiescent. Therefore, a critical question in stem cell biology is how stem cells escape cell division stop signals. Here, we report the necessity of the microRNA (miRNA) pathway for proper control of germline stem(More)
We use the third-and fourth-order autocorrelation functions g (3) (τ 1 ,τ 2) and g (4) (τ 1 ,τ 2 ,τ 3) to detect the nonclassical character of the light transmitted through a photonic-crystal nanocavity containing a strongly coupled quantum dot probed with a train of coherent light pulses. We contrast the value of g (3) (0,0) with the conventionally used g(More)
We investigate the influence of exciton-phonon coupling on the dynamics of a strongly coupled quantum dot-photonic crystal cavity system and explore the effects of this interaction on different schemes for nonclassical light generation. By performing time-resolved measurements, we map out the detuning-dependent polariton lifetime and extract the spectrum of(More)
The on-chip generation of nonclassical states of light is a key requirement for future optical quantum hardware. In solid-state cavity quantum electrodynamics, such nonclassical light can be generated from self-assembled quantum dots strongly coupled to photonic crystal cavities. Their anharmonic strong light-matter interaction results in large optical(More)
Strongly coupled quantum dot-cavity systems provide a non-linear configuration of hybridized light-matter states with promising quantum-optical applications. Here, we investigate the coherent interaction between strong laser pulses and quantum dot-cavity polaritons. Resonant excitation of polaritonic states and their interaction with phonons allow us to(More)
SUMMARY A bi-directional, latching microactuator which combines the use of micromachined permanent magnets and electromagnets has been developed. The device is fabricated primarily from Ni/Fe permalloy using LIGA technology, whereas the permanent magnets are cut from NdFeB using micro-electro discharge machining. The permanent magnets allow the actuator to(More)
We investigate the dynamics of single-and multiphoton emission from detuned strongly coupled systems based on the quantum-dot–photonic-crystal resonator platform. Transmitting light through such systems can generate a range of nonclassical states of light with tunable photon counting statistics due to the nonlinear ladder of hybridized light-matter states.(More)
Many pancreatic transcription factors that are essential for islet cell differentiation have been well characterized; however, because they are often expressed in several different cell populations, their functional hierarchy remains unclear. To parse out the spatiotemporal regulation of islet cell differentiation, we used a Neurog3-Cre allele to ablate(More)
Although individual spins in quantum dots have been studied extensively as qubits, their investigation under strong resonant driving in the scope of accessing Mollow physics is still an open question. Here, we have grown high quality positively charged quantum dots embedded in a planar microcavity that enable enhanced light-matter interactions. Under a(More)
