Stochastic Low Frequency Variability in 3-Dimensional Radiation Hydrodynamical Models of Massive Star Envelopes

Kavli Affiliate: Lars Bildsten | First 5 Authors: William C. Schultz, Lars Bildsten, Yan-Fei Jiang, , | Summary: Increasing main sequence stellar luminosity with stellar mass leads to the eventual dominance of radiation pressure in stellar envelope hydrostatic balance. As the luminosity approaches the Eddington limit, additional instabilities (beyond conventional convection) can occur. These instabilities […]

The Cosmic Ultraviolet Baryon Survey (CUBS) IV: The Complex Multiphase Circumgalactic Medium as Revealed by Partial Lyman Limit Systems

Kavli Affiliate: Robert A. Simcoe | First 5 Authors: Thomas J. Cooper, Gwen C. Rudie, Hsiao-Wen Chen, Sean D. Johnson, Fakhri S. Zahedy | Summary: We present a detailed study of two partial Lyman limit systems (pLLSs) of neutral hydrogen column density $N_mathrm{H,I}approx(1-3)times10^{16},mathrm{cm}^{-2}$ discovered at $z=0.5$ in the Cosmic Ultraviolet Baryon Survey (CUBS). Available far-ultraviolet […]

Measurement of the Relativistic Sunyaev-Zeldovich Corrections in RX J1347.5-1145

Kavli Affiliate: Adam B. Mantz | First 5 Authors: Victoria Butler, Richard M. Feder, Tansu Daylan, Adam B. Mantz, Dale Mercado | Summary: We present a measurement of the relativistic corrections to the thermal Sunyaev-Zel’dovich (SZ) effect spectrum, the rSZ effect, toward the massive galaxy cluster RX J1347.5-1145 by combining sub-mm images from Herschel-SPIRE with […]

Axion dark matter-induced echo of supernova remnants

Kavli Affiliate: Kiyoshi Masui | First 5 Authors: Yitian Sun, Katelin Schutz, Anjali Nambrath, Calvin Leung, Kiyoshi Masui | Summary: Axions are a theoretically promising dark matter (DM) candidate. In the presence of radiation from bright astrophysical sources at radio frequencies, nonrelativistic DM axions can undergo stimulated decay to two nearly back-to-back photons, meaning that […]

Measuring the Density Fields around Bright Quasars at $zsim 6$ with XQR-30 Spectra

Kavli Affiliate: Nickolay Y. Gnedin | First 5 Authors: Huanqing Chen, Anna-Christina Eilers, Sarah E. I. Bosman, Nickolay Y. Gnedin, Xiaohui Fan | Summary: Measuring the density of the intergalactic medium using quasar sightlines in the epoch of reionization is challenging due to the saturation of Lyman-$alpha$ absorption. Near a luminous quasar, however, the enhanced […]

Global optimization of multilayer dielectric coatings for precision measurements

Kavli Affiliate: Rana X. Adhikari | First 5 Authors: Gautam Venugopalan, Koji Arai, Rana X Adhikari, , | Summary: We describe the design of optimized multilayer dielectric coatings for precision laser interferometry. By setting up an appropriate cost function and then using a global optimizer to find a minimum in the parameter space, we were […]

Intersonic Detachment Surface Waves in Elastomer Frictional Sliding

Kavli Affiliate: David A. Weitz | First 5 Authors: [#item_custom_name[1]], [#item_custom_name[2]], [#item_custom_name[3]], [#item_custom_name[4]], [#item_custom_name[5]] | Summary: Elastomeric materials when sliding on clean and rough surfaces generate wrinkles at the interface due to tangential stress gradients. These interfacial folds travel along the bottom of elastomer as surface detachment waves to facilitate the apparent sliding motion of […]

TESS Eclipsing Binary Stars. I. Short cadence observations of 4584 eclipsing binaries in Sectors 1-26

Kavli Affiliate: Avi Shporer | First 5 Authors: Andrej Prsa, Angela Kochoska, Kyle E. Conroy, Nora Eisner, Daniel R. Hey | Summary: In this paper we present a catalog of 4584 eclipsing binaries observed during the first two years (26 sectors) of the TESS survey. We discuss selection criteria for eclipsing binary candidates, detection of […]
