A general analysis of thermal noise in torsion pendulums is presented. The specific case where the torsion angle is kept fixed by electronic feedback is analyzed. This analysis is applied to a recentâ€¦ (More)

A brief review of the recent experimental verifications of the Casimir force between extended bodies is presented. With modern techniques, it now appears feasible to test the force law with precisionâ€¦ (More)

The frequency spectrum of the finite temperature correction to the Casimir force can be determined by use of the Lifshitz formalism for metallic plates of finite conductivity. We show that theâ€¦ (More)

We briefly review the development and theory of an experiment to investigate quantum computation with trapped calcium ions. The ion trap, laser and ion requirements are determined, and the parametersâ€¦ (More)

We present a new fiber based quantum key distribution (QKD) scheme which can be regarded as a modification of an idea proposed by Inoue, Waks and Yamamoto (IWY) [1]. The scheme described here uses aâ€¦ (More)
