In particular, we first consider a concept for a 'qeyboard', i.e. [...] Fulltext: HTML-Approval_of_scientific_publication - HTML; PDF-Approval_of_scientific_publication - PDF; Restricted: main_document - PDF PDF (PDFA); 2204.00399v1 - PDF PDF (PDFA); 2022-06-2811:01 [PUBDB-2022-03191] Preprint Clemente, G. ; Crippa, A. ; Jansen, K. Strategies for the Determination of the Running Coupling of $(2+1)$-dimensional QED with Quantum Computing [arXiv:2206.12454]   We propose to utilize NISQ-era quantum devices to compute short distance quantities in $(2+1)$-dimensional QED and to combine them with large volume Monte Carlo simulations and perturbation theory. On the quantum computing side, we perform a calculation of the mass gap in the small and intermediate regime, demonstrating, in the latter case, that it can be resolved reliably.

The data was recorded using a mid-infrared frequency comb coupled to a homebuilt Fourier-transform spectrometer with a resolution of 0.00501 $cm^{-1}$.

The measurement was made in the kinematic range $30 < W < 180$ GeV, $Q^2 < 1$ GeV$^2$ and $|t| < 1$ GeV$^2$, where $W$ is the photon--proton centre-of-mass energy, $Q^2$ is the photon virtuality and $t$ is the squared four-momentum transfer at the proton vertex.

A. ; Voumard, T. ; et al Soliton Pulses in Photonic Crystal Fabry-Perot Microresonators [arXiv:2206.10410] Femtosecond dissipative Kerr solitons (DKS) in high-Q microresonators enable novel applications in spectroscopy, sensing, communication and signal processing. Usually, DKS pulses are generated in traveling-wave ring-resonators driven by continuous-wave lasers.

Attosecond experiments based on the indirect (fragment ion-based) characterization of the proposed electronic phenomena suggest that the photoionization-induced electronic coherence can survive for tens of femtoseconds, while some theoretical studies predict much faster decay of the coherence due to the quantum uncertainty in the nuclear positions and the nuclear-motion effects.

While high compression factors can be routinely achieved, the compressed pulses typically suffer from temporal quality degradation.

F. ; Bringmann, T. ; Hufnagel, M. ; et al A new life for sterile neutrino dark matter after the pandemic [CERN-TH-2022-099; DESY-22-102; ULB-TH/22-09; arXiv:2206.10630] We propose a novel mechanism to generate sterile neutrinos $\nu_s$ in the early Universe, by converting ordinary neutrinos $\nu_\alpha$ in scattering processes $\nu_s\nu_\alpha\to\nu_s\nu_s$. After initial production by oscillations, this leads to an exponential growth in the $\nu_s$ abundance.

A. G. ; Pierre, M. ; Verner, S. Scalar Dark Matter Production from Preheating and Structure Formation Constraints [DESY-22-104; arXiv:2206.08940] We investigate the out-of-equilibrium production of scalar dark matter (DM) from the inflaton condensate during inflation and reheating. We assume that this scalar couples only to the inflaton via a direct quartic coupling and is minimally coupled to gravity.

During Run 3 of the LHC, the FASER experiment is expected to detect roughly $10^4$ collider neutrinos using its emulsion-based neutrino detector FASER$\nu$.
