Voyager 2 solar plasma and magnetic field spectral analysis for intermediate data sparsity

Kavli Affiliate: John D. Richardson | First 5 Authors: Luca Gallana, Federico Fraternale, Michele Iovieno, Sophie M. Fosson, Enrico Magli | Summary: The Voyager probes are the furthest, still active, spacecraft ever launched from Earth. During their 38-year trip, they have collected data regarding solar wind properties (such as the plasma velocity and magnetic field […]

Three-Charge Black Holes and Quarter BPS States in Little String Theory

Kavli Affiliate: Jeffrey Harvey | First 5 Authors: Amit Giveon, Jeffrey Harvey, David Kutasov, Sungjay Lee, | Summary: We show that the system of $k$ NS5-branes wrapping $mathbb{T}^4times S^1$ has non-trivial vacuum structure. Different vacua have different spectra of 1/4 BPS states that carry momentum and winding around the $S^1$. In one vacuum, such states […]

Closing the proximity gap in a metallic Josephson junction between three superconductors

Kavli Affiliate: Yu V. Nazarov | First 5 Authors: C. Padurariu, T. Jonckheere, J. Rech, R. Mélin, D. Feinberg | Summary: We describe the proximity effect in a short disordered metallic junction between three superconducting leads. Andreev bound states in the multi-terminal junction may cross the Fermi level. We reveal that for a quasi-continuous metallic […]

WASP-47: A Hot Jupiter System with Two Additional Planets Discovered by K2

Kavli Affiliate: Saul A. Rappaport | First 5 Authors: Juliette C. Becker, Andrew Vanderburg, Fred C. Adams, Saul A. Rappaport, Hans Martin Schwengeler | Summary: Using new data from the K2 mission, we show that WASP-47, a previously known hot Jupiter host, also hosts two additional transiting planets: a Neptune-sized outer planet and a super-Earth […]

Repeated quantum error correction on a continuously encoded qubit by real-time feedback

Kavli Affiliate: Tim H. Taminiau | First 5 Authors: Julia Cramer, Norbert Kalb, M. Adriaan Rol, Bas Hensen, Machiel S. Blok | Summary: Reliable quantum information processing in the face of errors is a major fundamental and technological challenge. Quantum error correction protects quantum states by encoding a logical quantum bit (qubit) in multiple physical […]

Plasma and Magnetic Field Characteristics of Solar Coronal Mass Ejections in Relation to Geomagnetic Storm Intensity and Variability

Kavli Affiliate: John D. Richardson | First 5 Authors: Ying D. Liu, Huidong Hu, Rui Wang, Zhongwei Yang, Bei Zhu | Summary: The largest geomagnetic storms of solar cycle 24 so far occurred on 2015 March 17 and June 22 with $D_{rm st}$ minima of $-223$ and $-195$ nT, respectively. Both of the geomagnetic storms […]

Discovery of two gravitationally lensed quasars in the Dark Energy Survey

Kavli Affiliate: Kevin Reil | First 5 Authors: Adriano Agnello, Tommaso Treu, Fernanda Ostrovski, Paul L. Schechter, Elizabeth J. Buckley-Geer | Summary: We present spectroscopic confirmation of two new lensed quasars via data obtained at the 6.5m Magellan/Baade Telescope. The lens candidates have been selected from the Dark Energy Survey (DES) and WISE based on […]
