Investigation of Deferred Charge Effects in LSST ITL Sensors

Kavli Affiliate: Aaron Roodman | First 5 Authors: Adam Snyder, Aaron Roodman, , , | Summary: The traditional characterization of charge transfer inefficiency (CTI) in charge-coupled devices (CCDs) can suffer from a number of deficiencies: CTI is often only calculated for a limited number of signal levels, CTI is calculated from a limited number of […]

Probing and manipulating embryogenesis via nanoscale thermometry and temperature control

Kavli Affiliate: Daniel Needleman | First 5 Authors: Joonhee Choi, Hengyun Zhou, Renate Landig, Hai-Yin Wu, Xiaofei Yu | Summary: Understanding the coordination of cell division timing is one of the outstanding questions in the field of developmental biology. One active control parameter of the cell cycle duration is temperature, as it can accelerate or […]

X-ray Observations of the Peculiar Cepheid V473 Lyr Identify A Low-Mass Companion

Kavli Affiliate: Moritz Guenther | First 5 Authors: Nancy Remage Evans, Ignazio Pillitteri, Laszlo Molnar, Laszlo Szabados, Emese Plachy | Summary: V473 Lyr is a classical Cepheid which is unique in having substantial amplitude variations with a period of approximately 3.3 years, thought to be similar to the Blazhko variations in RR Lyrae stars. We […]

Photoinduced phase separation in the lead halides is a polaronic effect

Kavli Affiliate: Naomi S. Ginsberg | First 5 Authors: David T. Limmer, Naomi S. Ginsberg, , , | Summary: We present a perspective on recent observations of the photoinduced phase separation of halides in multi-component lead-halide perovskites. The spontaneous phase separation of an initial homogeneous solid solution under steady-state illumination conditions is found experimentally to […]
