Improving holographic particle characterization by modeling spherical aberration

Kavli Affiliate: Vinothan Manoharan | First 5 Authors: Caroline Martin, Brian Leahy, Vinothan Manoharan, , | Summary: Holographic microscopy combined with forward modeling and inference allows colloidal particles to be characterized and tracked in three dimensions with high precision. However, current models ignore the effects of optical aberrations on hologram formation. We investigate the effects […]

ADDGALS: Simulated Sky Catalogs for Wide Field Galaxy Surveys

Kavli Affiliate: Eli Rykoff | First 5 Authors: Risa H. Wechsler, Joseph DeRose, Michael T. Busha, Matthew R. Becker, Eli Rykoff | Summary: We present a method for creating simulated galaxy catalogs with realistic galaxy luminosities, broad-band colors, and projected clustering over large cosmic volumes. The technique, denoted ADDGALS (Adding Density Dependent GAlaxies to Lightcone […]

MP3 White Paper 2021 — Research Opportunities Enabled by Co-locating Multi-Petawatt Lasers with Dense Ultra-Relativistic Electron Beams

Kavli Affiliate: Roger Blandford | First 5 Authors: Sebastian Meuren, David A. Reis, Roger Blandford, Phil H. Bucksbaum, Nathaniel J. Fisch | Summary: Novel emergent phenomena are expected to occur under conditions exceeding the QED critical electric field, where the vacuum becomes unstable to electron-positron pair production. The required intensity to reach this regime, $sim10^{29},mathrm{Wcm^{-2}}$, […]
