    Quantum state engineering, purification, and number resolved photon detection with high finesse optical cavities

    Full text link
    We propose and analyze a multi-functional setup consisting of high finesse optical cavities, beam splitters, and phase shifters. The basic scheme projects arbitrary photonic two-mode input states onto the subspace spanned by the product of Fock states |n>|n> with n=0,1,2,.... This protocol does not only provide the possibility to conditionally generate highly entangled photon number states as resource for quantum information protocols but also allows one to test and hence purify this type of quantum states in a communication scenario, which is of great practical importance. The scheme is especially attractive as a generalization to many modes allows for distribution and purification of entanglement in networks. In an alternative working mode, the setup allows of quantum non demolition number resolved photodetection in the optical domain.Comment: 14 pages, 10 figure

    Trichlorido[(meth­yl{2-[meth­yl(2-pyridyl­meth­yl)amino]eth­yl}amino)acetonitrile]iron(III) methanol hemisolvate

    The title compound, [FeCl3(C12H18N4)]·0.5CH3OH, contains an FeIII ion in a distorted octa­hedral coordination environment. The neutral N,N′,N′′-tridentate ligand adopts a fac coordination mode, and chloride ligands lie trans to each of the three coordinated N atoms. In the crystal, the complexes form columns extending parallel to the approximate local threefold axes of the FeN3Cl3 octa­hedra, and the columns are arranged so that the uncoordinated nitrile groups align in an anti­parallel manner and the pyridyl rings form offset face-to-face arrangements [inter­planar separations = 2.95 (1) and 3.11 (1) Å; centroid–centroid distances = 5.31 (1) and 4.92 (1) Å]. The methanol solvent mol­ecule is disordered about a twofold rotation axis

    [N,N-Bis(2-pyridylmeth­yl)glycinato-κ4 N,N′,N′′,O]dichloridoiron(III)–[N,N-bis­(2-pyridylmeth­yl)glycine-κ4 N,N′,N′′,O]dichloridozinc(II) (1/1)

    The title compound, [Fe(C14H14N3O2)Cl2]·[ZnCl2(C14H15N3O2)], is formulated as [FeIII(bpg)Cl2][ZnIICl2(bpgH)], where bpg is the tetra­dentate ligand N,N-bis­(2-pyridylmeth­yl)glycine. The structure contains one crystallographically distinct complex with FeIII and ZnII atoms present in a 50:50 ratio in a single-atom site. The non-coordinated O atoms of the carboxyl groups of bpg meet across crystallographic inversion centres, forming O—H⋯O hydrogen bonds that include only one H atom per two complexes, consistent with the 1:1 disorder of FeIII and ZnII

    The title compound, (C6H7N2O)[FeCl4], contains two carbamylpyridinium (picolinamidinium) cations, which are linked into chains by N+—H⋯O hydrogen bonds formed between protonated pyridyl N atoms and carbonyl groups. Tetra­chloridoferrate(III) anions lie between these chains, accepting N—H⋯Cl hydrogen bonds from both H atoms of the picolinamidium –NH2 group

    The Framing Effects of Professionalism: Is There a Lawyer Cast of Mind? Lessons from Compliance Programs

    Get PDF
    Professionals working inside companies may bring with them frames of mind set by their professional experience and socialization. Lawyers, in particular, are said to think like a lawyer -to have a lawyer cast of mind. In seeking power within a company and in exercising the power that they obtain, professionals may draw on their professional background to frame, name, diagnose, and prescribe a remedy for the company\u27s problems. In making decisions about their compliance with the law, companies are constrained not only by their environment, but also by their agents\u27 understanding of whose (or what) interests the company should serve. In particular, compliance managers\u27 understandings will frame and influence their companies\u27 calculations of the value, benefits, and costs of compliance activities. The profession of the compliance manager then may influence how the company complies with the law. This Article uses data from a survey of 999 large Australian businesses to examine the professional background of the person in charge of compliance and (1) how they analyze the costs, benefits and risks of non-compliance; and (2) their company\u27s structures and practices of compliance. Contrary to our hypotheses, we find that the professional background of the individual responsible for compliance has little impact on a company\u27s compliance management structures and practices or assessment of stakeholders. The exceptions are that having a lawyer in charge of compliance is associated with the company\u27s perception of heightened legal risk; and where the person in charge of compliance is a lawyer, the company compliance efforts will be marked by manuals and training programs, but not more fulsome compliance structures, which are present when a compliance specialist leads the department. Unfortunately, our data also reveals that these compliance structures are generally merely formal-and likely largely symbolic
