Tailoring the width and depth of CM in argon is demonstrated by changing the gas jet position with respect to the focal plane of focusing lens and by defocusing-assisted phase-matching.

Electronic systems with quasi-one-dimensional (Q1D) Fermi surface tend to form either a charge-density-wave (CDW) or a spin-density-wave ground state at low temperatures due to one-dimensional instabilities.

Autonomous entanglement engines have recently been proposed to generate steady-state bipartite and multipartite entanglement exploiting only incoherent interactions with thermal baths at different temperatures. In this work, we investigate the interplay between heat current and entanglement in a two-qubit entanglement engine, deriving a critical heat current for successful operation of the engine,

Enhanced superconductivity of FeSe in the 2D limit on oxide surfaces as well as the prediction of topological superconductivity at the interface to topological insulators makes the fabrication of Fe-chalcogenide monolayers a topic of current interest. So far superconductive properties of the latter are mostly studied by scanning tunneling spectroscopy, which can detect gaps in the local density of

We employ a theoretical model based on the density-matrix equation in the velocity gauge to calculate high harmonic generation from monolayer MoS 2 . This approach incorporates the tight-binding model, enabling the full consideration of both crystal symmetry and multiple band effects. In additional to the usual odd harmonics, even harmonics are also presented in the case of observing two different

Two-dimensional (2D) spectroscopy uses multiple electromagnetic pulses to infer the properties of a complex system. A paradigmatic class of target systems are molecular aggregates, for which one can obtain information on the eigenstates, various types of static and dynamic disorder and on relaxation processes. However, two-dimensional spectra can be difficult to interpret without precise knowledge

Here we present a general approach for the description for the frequency dependent dielectric tensor coefficients for optically anisotropic materials. Based on symmetry arguments we show that the components of the dielectric tensor are in general not independent of each other. For each excitation there exists an eigensystem, where its contribution to the dielectric tensor can be described by a diagonal
