  • GroundBIRD: A CMB Polarization Experiment with MKID Arrays

    GroundBIRD is a ground-based experiment for a precise observation of the cosmic microwave background (CMB) polarizations. To achieve high sensitivity at large angular scales, we adopt three features in this experiment: fast rotation scanning, microwave kinetic inductance detector (MKID), and cold optics. The rotation scanning strategy has the

  • An underlying clock in the extreme flip-flop state transitions of the black hole transient Swift J1658.2-4242

    Aims: Flip-flops are top-hat-like X-ray flux variations, which have been observed in some transient accreting black hole binary systems, and feature simultaneous changes in the spectral hardness and the power density spectrum (PDS). They occur at a crucial time in the evolution of these systems, when the accretion disc emission starts to dominate

  • Cosmic Amorphous Dust Model as the Origin of Anomalous Microwave Emission

    We have shown that the thermal emission of the amorphous dust composed of amorphous silicate dust (a-Si) and amorphous carbon dust (a-C) provides an excellent fit both to the observed intensity and the polarization spectra of molecular clouds. The anomalous microwave emission (AME) originates from the resonance transition of the two-level systems

  • Geometry of the Draco C1 Symbiotic Binary

    Draco C1 is a known symbiotic binary star system composed of a carbon red giant and a hot, compact companion—likely a white dwarf—belonging to the Draco dwarf spheroidal galaxy. From near-infrared spectroscopic observations taken by the Apache Point Observatory Galactic Evolution Experiment (APOGEE-2), part of Sloan Digital Sky Survey IV, we
