Revealing the Dark Universe 

It's a sobering thought: all the matter that has ever been detected accounts for a mere 4.9% of the Universe.

Most of the cosmos is the dark universe, a mix of dark matter and dark energy. Both have so far proved impenetrable puzzles, but physicists young and old are intent on changing that.

Ripplon laser through stimulated emission mediated by water waves   pp758 - 761
Samuel Kaminski, Leopoldo L. Martin, Shai Maayani and Tal Carmon
Octane droplets in water can resonate both capillary and optical modes. Researchers have now exploited such cavities and observed optically controlled stimulated capillary scattering and coherent excitation of capillary resonances.

Real-space coherent manipulation of electrons in a single tunnel junction by single-cycle terahertz electric fields   pp762 - 765
Katsumasa Yoshioka, Ikufumi Katayama, Yasuo Minami, Masahiro Kitajima, Shoji Yoshida et al.
Carrier-envelope-phase-controlled single-cycle terahertz pulses can induce coherent electron tunnelling either from a Pt/Ir nanotip to a graphite sample or vice versa. The pulses enable ultrafast nonlinear manipulation of electrons at the atomic scale.

Integrated optomechanical single-photon frequency shifter   pp766 - 770
Linran Fan, Chang-Ling Zou, Menno Poot, Risheng Cheng, Xiang Guo et al.
An optomechanical single-photon frequency shifter is demonstrated in integrated AlN waveguides. A frequency shift up to 150 GHz is achieved at telecom wavelength. The device shows near-unity efficiency and preserves the quantum coherence.

Self-organized instability in graded-index multimode fibres   pp771 - 776
Logan G. Wright, Zhanwei Liu, Daniel A. Nolan, Ming-Jun Li, Demetrios N. Christodoulides et al.
Spatial beam clean-up and spatiotemporal modulation instability in graded-index multimode fibres are studied in a regime characterized by disorder, nonlinearity and dissipation.

Near-unity quantum efficiency of broadband black silicon photodiodes with an induced junction   pp777 - 781
Mikko A. Juntunen, Juha Heinonen, Ville Vähänissi, Päivikki Repo, Dileep Valluru et al.
The combination of black silicon to improve the light absorption and negatively charged alumina to form an induced collecting junction characterizes a photodiode with external quantum efficiency above 96% between 250 nm and 950 nm.

Selective carrier injection into patterned arrays of pyramidal quantum dots for entangled photon light-emitting diodes   pp782 - 787
T. H. Chung, G. Juska, S. T. Moroni, A. Pescaglini, A. Gocalinska et al.
Polarization-entangled photons are generated from light-emitting diodes based on site-controlled pyramidal quantum dots. Selective current injection into the vicinity of a quantum dot becomes possible owing to a self-assembled vertical quantum wire.

Optical microresonators as single-particle absorption spectrometers   pp788 - 795
Kevin D. Heylman, Niket Thakkar, Erik H. Horak, Steven C. Quillin, Charles Cherqui et al.
Single-particle double-modulation absorption spectrometers based on whispering-gallery-mode microresonators achieve sub-100-Hz sensitivity to photothermal resonance shifts and allow for the study of arrays of Fano resonances in the context of plasmonic–photonic hybridization.

Lasing and anti-lasing in a single cavity   pp796 - 801
Zi Jing Wong, Ye-Long Xu, Jeongmin Kim, Kevin O'Brien, Yuan Wang et al.
A cavity that can switch between lasing and anti-lasing could inspire a new design of optical modulator.

High-magnification super-resolution FINCH microscopy using birefringent crystal lens interferometers   pp802 - 808
Nisan Siegel, Vladimir Lupashin, Brian Storrie and Gary Brooker
The use of birefringent crystals improves super-resolution Fresnel incoherent correlation holography (FINCH) microscopy.

A flexible and wearable terahertz scanner   pp809 - 813
D. Suzuki, S. Oda and Y. Kawano
A flexible and wearable terahertz scanner based on carbon nanotubes is demonstrated at room temperature over a frequency range 0.14 THz to 39 THz. The terahertz photothermoelectricity is enhanced by using different electrode materials.



Corrigendum: All-optical bit storage in a fibre laser by optomechanically bound states of solitons   p814
M. Pang, W. He, X. Jiang and P. St. J. Russell
