What’s Behind the Elephant’s Trunk? Identifying Young Stellar Objects on the Outskirts of IC1396

Kavli Affiliate: David A. Principe | First 5 Authors: [#item_custom_name[1]], [#item_custom_name[2]], [#item_custom_name[3]], [#item_custom_name[4]], [#item_custom_name[5]] | Summary: Empirically, the estimated lifetime of a typical protoplanetary disk is $<5-10$ Myr. However, the disk lifetimes required to produce a variety of observed exoplanetary systems may exceed this timescale. Some hypothesize that this inconsistency is due to estimating disk […]

Astrophysical Distance Scale IV. Preliminary Zero-Point Calibration of the JAGB Method in the HST/WFC3-IR Broad J-Band (F110W) Filter

Kavli Affiliate: Wendy L. Freedman | First 5 Authors: Barry F. Madore, Wendy L. Freedman, Abigail Lee, , | Summary: We present an absolute calibration of the J-region Asymptotic Giant Branch (JAGB) method using published photometry of resolved stars in 20 nearby galaxies observed with HST using the WFC3-IR camera and the F110W (Broad J-Band) […]

Chirality: A Scientific Leitmotif

Kavli Affiliate: Frank Wilczek | First 5 Authors: [#item_custom_name[1]], [#item_custom_name[2]], [#item_custom_name[3]], [#item_custom_name[4]], [#item_custom_name[5]] | Summary: Handedness, or chirality, has been a continuing source of inspiration across a wide range of scientific problems. After a quick review of some important, instructive historical examples, I present three contemporary case studies involving sophisticated applications of chirality at the […]

Repeating Fast Radio Burst: Coherent Circular Polarization By Bunches

Kavli Affiliate: Kejia Lee | First 5 Authors: [#item_custom_name[1]], [#item_custom_name[2]], [#item_custom_name[3]], [#item_custom_name[4]], [#item_custom_name[5]] | Summary: Fast radio bursts (FRBs) are millisecond-duration signals that are highly dispersed at distant galaxies. However, the physical origin of FRBs is still unknown. Coherent curvature emission by bunches, e.g., powered by starquakes, has already been proposed for repeating FRBs. It […]
