A Tetramethylsilane TPC with Cherenkov light readout and 3D reconstruction

Kavli Affiliate: Giorgio Gratta | First 5 Authors: Shuoxing Wu, Brian Lenardo, Manuel Weber, Giorgio Gratta, | Summary: We describe the construction and calibration of a multi-channel liquid time projection chamber filled with Tetramethylsilane (TMS). Its charge readout system consists of 8 wires each in the $X$ and $Y$ directions. The chamber is also equipped […]

Discovery of a Powerful >10^61 erg AGN Outburst in Distant Galaxy Cluster SPT-CLJ0528-5300

Kavli Affiliate: Michael McDonald | First 5 Authors: Michael S. Calzadilla, Michael McDonald, Matthew Bayliss, Bradford A. Benson, Lindsey E. Bleem | Summary: We present ~103 ks of Chandra observations of the galaxy cluster SPT-CLJ0528-5300 (SPT0528, z=0.768). This cluster harbors the most radio-loud (L_1.4GHz = 1.01 x 10^33 erg/s/Hz) central AGN of any cluster in […]

Constraints on dark photons and axion-like particles from SuperCDMS Soudan

Kavli Affiliate: D. B. Macfarlane | First 5 Authors: SuperCDMS Collaboration, T. Aralis, T. Aramaki, I. J. Arnquist, E. Azadbakht | Summary: We present an analysis of electron recoils in cryogenic germanium detectors operated during the SuperCDMS Soudan experiment. The data are used to set new constraints on the axioelectric coupling of axion-like particles and […]
