  • Constraining nuclear star cluster formation using MUSE-AO observations of the early-type galaxy FCC 47

    Context. Nuclear star clusters (NSCs) are found in at least 70% of all galaxies, but their formation path is still unclear. In the most common scenarios, NSCs form in-situ from the galaxy's central gas reservoir, through the merging of globular clusters (GCs), or through a combination of both. Aims: As the scenarios pose different expectations for

  • Do AGN triggering mechanisms vary with radio power? - I. Optical morphologies of radio-intermediate HERGs

    Active galactic nuclei (AGNs) with intermediate radio powers are capable of driving multiphase outflows in galaxy bulges, and are also more common than their high-radio-power counterparts. In-depth characterization of the typical host galaxies and likely triggering mechanisms for this population is therefore required in order to better understand

  • Formation of ultra-diffuse galaxies in the field and in galaxy groups

    We study ultra-diffuse galaxies (UDGs) in zoom in cosmological simulations, seeking the origin of UDGs in the field versus galaxy groups. We find that while field UDGs arise from dwarfs in a characteristic mass range by multiple episodes of supernova feedback (Di Cintio et al.), group UDGs may also form by tidal puffing up and they become quiescent

  • Fundamentals of horn antennas with low cross-polarization levels for radioastronomy and satellite communications

    The literature on horn antennas dedicated to radio astronomy and satellite communications applications is very extensive and at times disjointed, relevant contributions being distributed as far back as from the 60's until the present today. This work combines a compact but complete review of the different theories, methodologies and techniques used

  • Greening of the brown-dwarf desert. EPIC 212036875b: a 51 MJ object in a 5-day orbit around an F7 V star

    Context. Although more than 2000 brown dwarfs have been detected to date, mainly from direct imaging, their characterisation is difficult due to their faintness and model-dependent results. In the case of transiting brown dwarfs, however, it is possible to make direct high-precision observations. Aims: Our aim is to investigate the nature and

  • Magnetic Sensitivity in the Wing Scattering Polarization Signals of the Hydrogen Lyman-α Line of the Solar Disk Radiation

    The linear polarization produced by scattering processes in the hydrogen Lyα line of the solar disk radiation is a key observable for probing the chromosphere–corona transition region (TR) and the underlying chromospheric plasma. While the line-center signal encodes information on the magnetic field and the three-dimensional structure of the TR,
