The physics of Lyman-alpha escape from disc-like galaxies

Kavli Affiliate: Mark Vogelsberger | First 5 Authors: Aaron Smith, Rahul Kannan, Sandro Tacchella, Mark Vogelsberger, Lars Hernquist | Summary: Hydrogen emission lines can provide extensive information about star-forming galaxies in both the local and high-redshift Universe. We present a detailed Lyman continuum (LyC), Lyman-alpha (Ly{alpha}), and Balmer line (H{alpha} and Hb{eta}) radiative transfer study […]

The effect of spin mismodeling on gravitational-wave measurements of the binary neutron star mass distribution

Kavli Affiliate: Salvatore Vitale | First 5 Authors: Sylvia Biscoveanu, Colm Talbot, Salvatore Vitale, , | Summary: The binary neutron star (BNS) mass distribution measured with gravitational-wave observations has the potential to reveal information about the dense matter equation of state, supernova physics, the expansion rate of the universe, and tests of General Relativity. As […]

Spectrally Multiplexed Hong-Ou-Mandel Interference

Kavli Affiliate: Wolfgang Tittel | First 5 Authors: Oriol Pietx-Casas, Gustavo Castro do Amaral, Tanmoy Chakraborty, Remon Berrevoets, Thomas Middelburg | Summary: We explore the suitability of a Virtually-Imaged Phased Array (VIPA) as a Spectral-to-Spatial Mode-Mapper (SSMM) for applications in quantum communication such as a quantum repeater. To this end we demonstrate spectrally-resolved two-photon "Hong-Ou-Mandel" […]
