Mitigating the effects of particle background on the Athena Wide-Field Imager

Kavli Affiliate: Marshall W. Bautz | First 5 Authors: Eric D. Miller, Catherine E. Grant, Marshall W. Bautz, Silvano Molendi, Ralph Kraft | Summary: The Wide Field Imager (WFI) flying on Athena will usher in the next era of studying the hot and energetic Universe. WFI observations of faint, diffuse sources will be limited by […]

A Possible Alignment Between the Orbits of Planetary Systems and their Visual Binary Companions

Kavli Affiliate: Christopher J. Burke | First 5 Authors: Sam Christian, Andrew Vanderburg, Juliette Becker, Daniel A. Yahalomi, Logan Pearce | Summary: Astronomers do not have a complete picture of the effects of wide-binary companions (semimajor axes greater than 100 AU) on the formation and evolution of exoplanets. We investigate these effects using new data […]

X-ray morphology of cluster-mass haloes in self-interacting dark matter

Kavli Affiliate: Adam Mantz | First 5 Authors: Xuejian Shen, Thejs Brinckmann, David Rapetti, Mark Vogelsberger, Adam Mantz | Summary: We perform cosmological zoom-in simulations of $19$ relaxed cluster-mass haloes with the inclusion of adiabatic gas within the cold dark matter (CDM) and self-interacting dark matter (SIDM) models. These clusters are selected as dynamically relaxed […]

Precisely computing bound orbits of spinning bodies around black holes II: Generic orbits

Kavli Affiliate: Scott A. Hughes | First 5 Authors: Lisa V. Drummond, Scott A. Hughes, , , | Summary: In this paper, we continue our study of the motion of spinning test bodies orbiting Kerr black holes. Non-spinning test bodies follow geodesics of the spacetime in which they move. A test body’s spin couples to […]
