Self-Affine Graphene Metasurfaces for Tunable Broadband Absorption




Graphene has emerged as a promising platform for THz metasurfaces supporting electrically tunable deep-subwavelength plasmonic excitations. Here, we introduce a broadband graphene metasurface based on the Hilbert curve, a continuous, space-filling fractal. We demonstrate the enhancement of graphene absorption over a broad frequency band (0.5–60 THz) with an average absorption level exceeding 20%. Owing to the continuous nature of the metasurface patterns, both the absorption level and the bandwidth can be controlled electrically by varying the graphene charge-carrier concentration.

In order to reject the local hidden variables hypothesis, the usefulness of a Bell inequality can be quantified by how small a $p$-value it will give for a physical experiment. Here we show that to obtain a small expected $p$-value it is sufficient to have a large gap between the local and Tsirelson bounds of the Bell inequality, when it is formulated as a nonlocal game. We develop an algorithm for transforming an arbitrary Bell inequality into an equivalent nonlocal game with the largest possible gap, and show its results for the CGLMP and $I_{nn22}$ inequalities.

We present explicit examples of Bell inequalities with gap arbitrarily close to one, and show that this makes it possible to reject local hidden variables with arbitrarily small $p$-value in a single shot, without needing to collect statistics. We also develop an algorithm for calculating local bounds of general Bell inequalities which is significantly faster than the naïve approach, which may be of independent interest.

Nonlocal games are cooperative games between two parties, Alice and Bob, that are not allowed to communicate. The maximal probability with which Alice and Bob can win the game depends on how the world fundamentally works: if it respects classical ideas about locality and determinism, this maximal probability is given by the local bound. On the other hand, if the world works according to quantum mechanics, the maximal probability is given by the Tsirelson bound, which is larger than the local bound. This makes it possible to experimentally falsify the classical worldview: let Alice and Bob play a nonlocal game with quantum devices for many rounds, and if they win more often than the local bound predicts, that’s it.

The number of rounds it takes for a decisive rejection of the classical worldview depends on the statistical power of the nonlocal game: a more powerful game requires fewer rounds to reach a conclusion with the same degree of confidence. We show that in order to get a large statistical power, it is enough to have a large gap between the local bound and the Tsirelson bound of the nonlocal game. Moreover, we show that this gap depends on how precisely a nonlocal game is formulated, so we develop an algorithm to maximise the gap over all possible formulations of a nonlocal game. With this, we derive the most powerful version of several well-known nonlocal games, such as the CHSH game, the CGLMP games, and the Inn22 games.

A natural question to ask is how high can the statistical power of a nonlocal game get. We show that it can get arbitrarily high, by constructing two nonlocal games with gap between their local and Tsirelson bounds arbitrarily close to one. This makes it possible to conclusively falsify the classical worldview with a single round of the nonlocal game, without needing to collect statistics. Unfortunately, neither of these games is experimentally feasible, so the question of whether a single-shot falsification is possible in practice is still open.

The surface code is a prominent topological error-correcting code exhibiting high fault-tolerance accuracy thresholds. Conventional schemes for error correction with the surface code place qubits on a planar grid and assume native CNOT gates between the data qubits with nearest-neighbor ancilla qubits.

Here, we present surface code error-correction schemes using $textit{only}$ Pauli measurements on single qubits and on pairs of nearest-neighbor qubits. In particular, we provide several qubit layouts that offer favorable trade-offs between qubit overhead, circuit depth and connectivity degree. We also develop minimized measurement sequences for syndrome extraction, enabling reduced logical error rates and improved fault-tolerance thresholds.

Our work applies to topologically protected qubits realized with Majorana zero modes and to similar systems in which multi-qubit Pauli measurements rather than CNOT gates are the native operations.

We numerically compute renormalized expectation values of quadratic operators in a quantum field theory (QFT) of free Dirac fermions in curved two-dimensional (Lorentzian) spacetime. First, we use a staggered-fermion discretization to generate a sequence of lattice theories yielding the desired QFT in the continuum limit. Numerically-computed lattice correlators are then used to approximate, through extrapolation, those in the continuum. Finally, we use so-called point-splitting regularization and Hadamard renormalization to remove divergences, and thus obtain finite, renormalized expectation values of quadratic operators in the continuum. As illustrative applications, we show how to recover the Unruh effect in flat spacetime and how to compute renormalized expectation values in the Hawking-Hartle vacuum of a Schwarzschild black hole and in the Bunch-Davies vacuum of an expanding universe described by de Sitter spacetime. Although here we address a non-interacting QFT using free fermion techniques, the framework described in this paper lays the groundwork for a series of subsequent studies involving simulation of interacting QFTs in curved spacetime by tensor network techniques.
