    Skywalking GEMS and UDF

    The two large colour mosaics of the GEMS and UDF projects, both obtained with the Hubble Space Telescope and ACS, consist of large amounts of data. We present two web application pages (the GEMS and UDF "Skywalker") that allow to pan around in these mosaics with downloading only small parts at a time.Comment: 1 pag

    Conductance oscillations in mesoscopic rings: microscopic versus macroscopic picture

    Full text link
    The phase of Aharonov-Bohm oscillations in mesoscopic metal rings in the presence of a magnetic field can be modulated by application of a DC-bias current I_DC. We address the question of how a variation of I_DC and hence of the microscopic phases of the electronic wave functions results in the macroscopic phase of the conductance oscillations. Whereas the first one can be varied continuously the latter has to be quantized for a ring in two-wire configuration by virtue of the Onsager symmetry relations. We observe a correlation between a phase flip by +/- pi and the amplitude of the oscillations.Comment: 4 pages, 4 figure
