  • We present a general method for obtaining the exact static solutions and collective excitation frequencies of a trapped Bose-Einstein condensate (BEC) with dipolar atomic interactions in the Thomas-Fermi regime. The method incorporates analytic expressions for the dipolar potential of an arbitrary polynomial density profile, thereby reducing the problem of handling nonlocal dipolar interactions to the solution of algebraic equations. We comprehensively map out the static solutions and excitation modes, including non-cylindrically-symmetric traps, and also the case of negative scattering length where dipolar interactions stabilize an otherwise unstable condensate. The dynamical stability of the excitation modes gives insight into the onsetmore » of collapse of a dipolar BEC. We find that global collapse is consistently mediated by an anisotropic quadrupolar collective mode, although there are two trapping regimes in which the BEC is stable against quadrupole fluctuations even as the ratio of the dipolar to s-wave interactions becomes infinite. Motivated by the possibility of a fragmented condensate in a dipolar Bose gas due to the partially attractive interactions, we pay special attention to the scissors modes, which can provide a signature of superfluidity, and identify a long-range restoring force which is peculiar to dipolar systems. As part of the supporting material for this paper we provide the computer program used to make the calculations, including a graphical user interface.« less
  • We have studied the problem of light scattering by an ensemble of dipoles with both electric and magnetic polarizabilities. Using the coupled electric and magnetic dipole method as the formal base, we have generalized the eigenvector decomposition of the local dipole moments previously derived for purely electric particles to the case of both electric and magnetic dipoles. We have analyzed the properties of eigenvalues and eigenvectors in the most elementary case of two particles. In the purely electric case, the eigenvalues correspond to the resonance modes of the system due to the electromagnetic coupling of its components. For a two-dipolemore » system with both electric and magnetic responses, purely electric, purely magnetic, and mixed states can be distinguished. The resonance spectrum is analyzed as a function of the magnetic permeability, and it is shown that the latter can be fitted quite accurately by the eigenmode decomposition.« less
  • A strong polarization-sensitive resonant enhancement of selected Raman lines is observed in single-crystal La/sub 2/CuO/sub 4+/ital y// near a 2-eV electronic excitation at room temperature. Structure in the electronic excitation spectra as narrow as 50 meV is resolved with this technique. The resonance phenomena are only observed for light polarized parallel to the Cu-O layers and are generally quenched upon the addition of excess oxygen.
  • We have developed a model to predict and analyze the photocurrent generation and resulting charge carrier Dissociation and Collection Efficiency (DCE) through reflectivity and quantum efficiency spectra. The DCE is regarded as a function of the morphology and exciton transport properties of the bulk heterojunction and is therefore a way to investigate the final properties of photoactive layer in a solar cell. Method proposed allows determination of the efficiency at which photogenerated excitons are dissociated in a working device with respect to the position in the cell at which the generation occurs. The method is tested on our results asmore » well as on a number of results already present in the literature.« less
