  • Development of Al-Nb Hybrid Lumped-Element Kinetic Inductance Detectors for Infrared Photon Detection

    A direct detection experiment with gallium arsenide (GaAs) as a cryogenic scintillator is proposed to search for dark matter in the mass range below 1 GeV . To detect scintillation photons with high sensitivity, we are developing Lumped Element Kinetic Inductance Detectors (LE-KIDs). We report the first fabrication of the aluminum-niobium LE-KIDs

  • Dwarf Galaxies with Central Cores in Modified Newtonian Dynamics Gravity

    Some dwarf galaxies are within the Mondian regime at all radii, i.e., the gravitational acceleration provided by the observed baryons is always below the threshold of g † ≃ 1.2 × 10-10 m s-2. These dwarf galaxies often show cores, in the sense that, assuming Newton's gravity to explain their rotation curves, the total density profile ρ(r) presents

  • EMIR, the near-infrared camera and multi-object spectrograph for the GTC. EMIR at GTC

    We present EMIR, a powerful near-infrared (NIR) camera and multi-object spectrograph (MOS) installed at the Nasmyth focus of the 10.4 m GTC. EMIR was commissioned in mid-2016 and is offered as a common-user instrument. It provides spectral coverage of 0.9-2.5 µm over a field of view (FOV) of 6.67' × 6.67' in imaging mode, and 6.67' × 4' in

  • Euclid: Cosmological forecasts from the void size function

    The Euclid mission - with its spectroscopic galaxy survey covering a sky area over 15 000 deg2 in the redshift range 0.9 < z < 1.8 - will provide a sample of tens of thousands of cosmic voids. This paper thoroughly explores for the first time the constraining power of the void size function on the properties of dark energy (DE) from a survey mock

  • FarNet-II: An improved solar far-side active region detection method

    Context. Activity on the far side of the Sun is routinely studied through the analysis of the seismic oscillations detected on the near side using helioseismic techniques such as phase-shift sensitive holography. Detections made through those methods are limited to strong active regions due to the need for a high signal-to-noise ratio. Recently

  • First Release of PLATO Consortium Stellar Limb-darkening Coefficients

    We release the first grid of stellar limb-darkening coefficients (LDCs) and intensity profiles (IPs) computed by the consortium of the PLAnetary Transits and Oscillations of stars (PLATO), the next medium-class (M3) mission under development by the European Space Agency to be launched in 2026. We have performed spectral synthesis with TurboSpectrum
