Tunable Inter-Moiré Physics in Consecutively-Twisted Trilayer Graphene

Kavli Affiliate: Ke Wang | First 5 Authors: Wei Ren, Konstantin Davydov, Ziyan Zhu, Jaden Ma, Kenji Watanabe | Summary: We fabricate a twisted trilayer graphene device with consecutive twist angles of 1.33 and 1.64 degrees, in which we electrostatically tune the electronic states from each of the two co-existing moir’e superlattices and the interactions […]

Giant Outer Transiting Exoplanet Mass (GOT ‘EM) Survey: III. Recovery and Confirmation of a Temperate, Mildly Eccentric, Single-Transit Jupiter Orbiting TOI-2010

Kavli Affiliate: George R. Ricker | First 5 Authors: Christopher R. Mann, Paul A. Dalba, David Lafrenière, Benjamin J. Fulton, Guillaume Hébrard | Summary: Large-scale exoplanet surveys like the TESS mission are powerful tools for discovering large numbers of exoplanet candidates. Single-transit events are commonplace within the resulting candidate list due to the unavoidable limitation […]

Multi-messenger astrophysics in the gravitational-wave era

Kavli Affiliate: Michael M. Fausnaugh | First 5 Authors: Geoffrey Mo, Rahul Jayaraman, Danielle Frostig, Michael M. Fausnaugh, Erik Katsavounidis | Summary: The observation of GW170817, the first binary neutron star merger observed in both gravitational waves (GW) and electromagnetic (EM) waves, kickstarted the age of multi-messenger GW astronomy. This new technique presents an observationally […]

GRB 180128A: A Second Magnetar Giant Flare Candidate from the Sculptor Galaxy

Kavli Affiliate: Nicola Omodei | First 5 Authors: Aaron C. Trigg, Eric Burns, Oliver J. Roberts, Michela Negro, Dmitry S. Svinkin | Summary: Magnetars are slowly rotating neutron stars that possess the strongest magnetic fields ($10^{14}-10^{15} mathrm{G}$) known in the cosmos. They display a range of transient high-energy electromagnetic activity. The brightest and most energetic […]

Project Dinos I: A joint lensing-dynamics constraint on the deviation from the power law in the mass profile of massive ellipticals

Kavli Affiliate: Joshua Frieman | First 5 Authors: Chin Yi Tan, Anowar J. Shajib, Simon Birrer, Alessandro Sonnenfeld, Tommaso Treu | Summary: The mass distribution in massive elliptical galaxies encodes their evolutionary history, thus providing an avenue to constrain the baryonic astrophysics in their evolution. The power-law assumption for the radial mass profile in ellipticals […]

BPS Fivebrane Stars II: Fluctuations

Kavli Affiliate: Emil J. Martinec | First 5 Authors: Emil J. Martinec, Yoav Zigdon, , , | Summary: We investigate quantum fluctuations of metric components in coherent 1/2-BPS bound states of $n_1$ fundamental strings and $n_5$ NS5-branes. The leading order contribution in an expansion in $1/(n_1n_5)$ is calculated via a combination of analytical and numerical […]

BPS Fivebrane Stars I: Expectation Values of Observables

Kavli Affiliate: Emil J. Martinec | First 5 Authors: Emil J. Martinec, Yoav Zigdon, , , | Summary: We study ensembles of 1/2-BPS bound states of fundamental strings and NS-fivebranes (NS5-F1 states) in the AdS decoupling limit. We revisit a solution corresponding to an ensemble average of these bound states, and find that the appropriate […]
