Masses of Sunyaev-Zel’dovich Galaxy Clusters Detected by The Atacama Cosmology Telescope: Stacked Lensing Measurements with Subaru HSC Year 3 data

Kavli Affiliate: David Spergel | First 5 Authors: Masato Shirasaki, Cristóbal Sifón, Hironao Miyatake, Erwin Lau, Zhuowen Zhang | Summary: We present a stacked lensing analysis of 96 galaxy clusters selected by the thermal Sunyaev-Zel’dovich (SZ) effect in maps of the cosmic microwave background (CMB). We select foreground galaxy clusters with a $5sigma$-level SZ threshold […]

The white-light superflares from cool stars in GWAC triggers

Kavli Affiliate: Jing Wang | First 5 Authors: Guang-Wei Li, Liang Wang, Hai-Long Yuan, Li-Ping Xin, Jing Wang | Summary: M-type stars are the ones that flare most frequently, but how big their maximum flare energy can reach is still unknown. We present 163 flares from 162 individual M2 through L1-type stars that triggered the […]

On the interplay of electronic and lattice screening on exciton binding in two-dimensional lead halide perovskites

Kavli Affiliate: David T. Limmer | First 5 Authors: Rohit Rana, David T. Limmer, , , | Summary: We use path integral Monte Carlo to study the energetics of excitons in layered, hybrid organic-inorganic perovskites in order to elucidate the relative contributions of dielectric confinement and electron-phonon coupling. While the dielectric mismatch between polar perovskite […]

Circumnuclear Dust in Luminous Early-Type Galaxies — I. Sample Properties and Stellar Luminosity Models

Kavli Affiliate: Luis C. Ho | First 5 Authors: Jared R. Davidson, Benjamin D. Boizelle, Jonelle L. Walsh, Aaron J. Barth, Emma Rasmussen | Summary: Dusty circumnuclear disks (CNDs) in luminous early-type galaxies (ETGs) show regular, dynamically cold molecular gas kinematics. For a growing number of ETGs, Atacama Large Millimeter/sub-millimeter Array (ALMA) CO imaging and […]

Derivations of Bloch (Majorana–Bloch) equation, von Neumann equation, and Schrödinger–Pauli equation

Kavli Affiliate: Lihong V. Wang | First 5 Authors: Lihong V. Wang, , , , | Summary: The transition from classical physics to quantum mechanics has been mysterious. Here, we derive the space-independent von Neumann equation for electron spin mathematically from the classical Bloch or Majorana–Bloch equation, which is also derived. Subsequently, the space-independent Schr"odinger–Pauli […]

Mobius Assembly for Plant Systems uncovers combinatorial interactions among promoters, coding sequences, and terminators in gene regulation

Kavli Affiliate: Andreas Andreou | Authors: Elif Gediz Kocaoglan, Andreas Andreou, Jessica Nirkko, Marisol Ochoa-Villarreal, Gary Loake and Naomi Nakayama | Summary: Plants are the primary biological platforms for producing food, energy, and materials in agriculture; however, they are largely untouched by synthetic biology-driven transformation in bioproduction technologies. Molecular tools for complex, multigene engineering are […]

Rising from the ashes: evidence of old stellar populations and rejuvenation events in the very early Universe

Kavli Affiliate: Roberto Maiolino | First 5 Authors: Callum Witten, William McClymont, Nicolas Laporte, Guido Roberts-Borsani, Debora Sijacki | Summary: While JWST has observed galaxies assembling as early as $zsim14$, evidence of galaxies with significant old stellar populations in the Epoch of Reionisation (EoR) — the descendants of these earliest galaxies — are few and […]
