### Laboratory tests on dark energy

- Physics
- 2006

The physical nature of the currently observed dark energy in the universe is completely unclear, and many different theoretical models co-exist. Nevertheless, if dark energy is produced by vacuum…

### What measurable zero point fluctuations can(not) tell us about dark energy

- Physics
- 2006

We show that laboratory experiments cannot measure the absolute value of dark energy. All known experiments rely on electromagnetic interactions. They are thus insensitive to particles and fields…

### Dark energy and Josephson junctions

- Physics
- 2009

It has been recently claimed that dark energy can be (and has been) observed in laboratory experiments by measuring the power spectrum SI(ω) of the noise current in a resistively shunted Josephson…

### ZEROPOINT FLUCTUATIONS AND DARK ENERGY IN JOSEPHSON JUNCTIONS

- Physics
- 2007

We discuss the possibility that vacuum fluctuations underlying dark energy could lead to measurable effects for the quantum noise spectrum in Josephson junctions [C. Beck, M. C. Mackey, Phys. Lett.…

### Possible Measurable Effects of Dark Energy in Rotating Superconductors

- Physics
- 2009

We discuss recent laboratory experiments with rotating superconductors and show that three so far unexplained experimentally observed effects (anomalous acceleration signals, anomalous gyroscope…

### DARK ENERGY, CHAOTIC FIELDS, AND FUNDAMENTAL CONSTANTS

- Physics
- 2006

To explain the currently observed accelerated expansion of the universe, a large number of different theoretical models are presently being discussed. In one way or another, all of these contain ‘new…

### Dark Energy:. Recent Developments

- Physics
- 2006

A six-parameter cosmological model, involving a vacuum energy density that is extremely tiny compared to fundamental particle physics scales, describes a large body of increasingly accurate…

### Dilution of zero point energies in the cosmological expansion

- Physics
- 2010

The vacuum fluctuations of all quantum fields filling the universe are supposed to leave enormous energy and pressure contributions which are incompatible with observations. It has been recently…

### Some Observable Effects of the Quantum-Mechanical Fluctuations of the Electromagnetic Field

- Physics
- 1948

An intuitive explanation is given for the electromagnetic shift of energy levels by calculating the mean square amplitude of oscillation of an electron coupled to the zero-point fluctuations of the…

### QUANTUM NOISE THEORY FOR THE RESISTIVELY SHUNTED JOSEPHSON JUNCTION

- Physics
- 1980

We show that the low-frequency spectral density of the voltage noise in a current-biased Josephson junction with critical current I/sub o/, shunt resistance R, and small capacitance is eI/sub 0//sup…

### The Cosmological Constant and Dark Energy

- Physics
- 2003

Physics invites the idea that space contains energy whose gravitational effect approximates that of Einstein's cosmological constant, Lambda: nowadays the concept is termed dark energy or…

### Quantum noise in a current-biased Josephson junction

- Physics
- 2003

Quantum fluctuations in a current-biased Josephson junction, described in terms of the RCSJ model, are considered. The fluctuations of the voltage and phase across the junction are assumed to be…

### Measurements of quantum noise in resistively shunted Josephson junctions

- Physics, Materials Science
- 1982

Measurements have been made of the low-frequency spectral density of the voltage noise in current-biased resistively shunted Josephson tunnel junctions under conditions in which the noise mixed-down…

### ON QUANTUM NOISE

- Physics
- 1995

We discuss the distribution function for the current noise in Quantum point contacts. Special interest is paid to contact of a superconductor with a normal metal. A new derivation of the…

### First-Year Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe (WMAP) Observations: Determination of Cosmological Parameters

- Physics

### Cosmological imprint of an energy component with general equation of state

- Physics
- 1998

We examine the possibility that a significant component of the energy density of the Universe has an equation of state different from that of matter, radiation, or cosmological constant ({Lambda} ).…

### First-Year Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe (WMAP) Observations: Preliminary Maps and Basic Results

- Physics
- 2003

We present full-sky microwave maps in five frequency bands (23-94 GHz) from the Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe (WMAP) first-year sky survey. Calibration errors are less than 0.5%, and the low…
