We report on gravitational wave discoveries from compact binary coalescences detected by Advanced LIGO and Advanced Virgo between 1 April 2019 15:00 UTC and 1 October 2019 15:00 UTC. By imposing a falsealarmrate threshold of two per year in each of the four search pipelines that constitute our search, we present 39 candidate gravitational wave events. At this threshold, we expect a contamination fraction of less than 10%. Of these, 26 candidate events were reported previously in near realtime through GCN Notices and Circulars; 13 are reported here for the first time. The catalog contains events whose sources ...

On May 21, 2019 at 03:02:29 UTC Advanced LIGO and Advanced Virgo observed a short duration gravitationalwave signal, GW190521, with a threedetector network signaltonoise ratio of 14.7, and an estimated falsealarm rate of 1 in 4900 yr using a search sensitive to generic transients. If GW190521 is from a quasicircular binary inspiral, then the detected signal is consistent with the merger of two black holes with masses of 85^{+21}_{−14} M⊙ and 66^{+17}_{−18} M⊙ (90% credible intervals). We infer that the primary black hole mass lies within the gap produced by (pulsational) pairinstability supernova ...

We present the results from a search for gravitationalwave transients associated with corecollapse supernovae observed within a source distance of approximately 20 Mpc during the first and second observing runs of Advanced LIGO and Advanced Virgo. No significant gravitationalwave candidate was detected. We report the detection efficiencies as a function of the distance for waveforms derived from multidimensional numerical simulations and phenomenological extreme emission models. The sources with neutrinodriven explosions are detectable at the distances approaching 5 kpc, and for magnetorotationally driven explosions the distances are up to 54 kpc. However, waveforms for extreme emission models are detectable up to ...

We have measured characteristic K x rays in coincidence with the scattered particles from collisions of hydrogenlike Ge ions with Kr atoms. The ions were first accelerated to 8.6 MeV/amu, poststripped to Hlike charge state, and decelerated to around 2.5 MeV/amu. From the measurements the probabilities for Kshell to Kshell charge transfer as a function of collision impact parameters were obtained. The probabilities show an onset of oscillations which are interpreted as quantum interference between the Kshell to Kshell electron transfer amplitudes in two spatially separated coupling regions in the incoming and outgoing parts of the ...

On 2019 April 25, the LIGO Livingston detector observed a compact binary coalescence with signaltonoise ratio 12.9. The Virgo detector was also taking data that did not contribute to detection due to a low signaltonoise ratio, but were used for subsequent parameter estimation. The 90% credible intervals for the component masses range from to if we restrict the dimensionless component spin magnitudes to be smaller than 0.05). These mass parameters are consistent with the individual binary components being neutron stars. However, both the sourceframe chirp mass and the total mass of this system are significantly larger than those ...

GW170817 is the very first observation of gravitational waves originating from the coalescence of two compact objects in the mass range of neutron stars, accompanied by electromagnetic counterparts, and offers an opportunity to directly probe the internal structure of neutron stars. We perform Bayesian model selection on a wide range of theoretical predictions for the neutron star equation of state. For the binary neutron star hypothesis, we find that we cannot rule out the majority of theoretical models considered. In addition, the gravitationalwave data alone does not rule out the possibility that one or both objects were lowmass black holes ...

The thermal conductivities along the basal and hexagonal directions of αquartz silica, the lowtemperature form of crystalline SiO_{2}, are predicted from the solution of the Boltzmann transport equation combined with the van Beest, Kramer, and van Santen potential for the temperature up to 900 K and the pressure as high as 4 GPa. The thermal conductivities at atmospheric pressure, which show a negative and nonlinear dependence on temperature, are in reasonable agreement with the experimental data. The influence of pressure on thermal conductivity is positive and linear. The pressure (P) and temperature (T) dependences of the thermal conductivity (λ ...

Fundamental electronic principles underlying all transition metal compounds are the symmetry and filling of the delectron orbitals and the influence of this filling on structural configurations and responses. Here we use a sensitive local structural technique, xray atomic pair distribution function analysis, to reveal the presence of fluctuating localstructural distortions at high temperature in one such compound, CuIr_{2}S_{4}. We show that this hitherto overlooked fluctuating symmetrylowering is electronic in origin and will modify the energylevel spectrum and electronic and magnetic properties. The explanation is a local, fluctuating, orbitaldegeneracylifted state. The natural extension of our result would be ...

We present results from a semicoherent search for continuous gravitational waves from the lowmass xray binary Scorpius X1, using a hidden Markov model (HMM) to track spin wandering. This search improves on previous HMMbased searches of LIGO data by using an improved frequency domain matched filter, the Jstatistic, and by analyzing data from Advanced LIGO's second observing run. In the frequency range searched, from 60 to 650 Hz, we find no evidence of gravitational radiation. At 194.6 Hz, the most sensitive search frequency, we report an upper limit on gravitational wave strain (at 95% confidence) of h_{0 ...}

The defect relaxation volumes obtained from densityfunctional theory (DFT) calculations of charged vacancies and interstitials are much larger than their neutral counterparts, seemingly unphysically large. We focus on UO2 as our primary material of interest, but also consider Si and GaAs to reveal the generality of our results. In this work, we investigate the possible reasons for this and revisit the methods that address the calculation of charged defects in periodic DFT. We probe the dependence of the proposed energy corrections to charged defect formation energies on relaxation volumes and find that corrections such as potential alignment remain ambiguous with ...

The detection of gravitational waves by Advanced LIGO and Advanced Virgo provides an opportunity to test general relativity in a regime that is inaccessible to traditional astronomical observations and laboratory tests. We present four tests of the consistency of the data with binary black hole gravitational waveforms predicted by general relativity. One test subtracts the bestfit waveform from the data and checks the consistency of the residual with detector noise. The second test checks the consistency of the low and highfrequency parts of the observed signals. The third test checks that phenomenological deviations introduced in the waveform model (including in ...

The optical memory effect has emerged as a powerful tool for imaging through multiplescattering media; however, the finite angular range of the memory effect limits the field of view. Here, we demonstrate experimentally that selective coupling of incident light into a hightransmission channel increases the angular memoryeffect range. This enhancement is attributed to the robustness of the hightransmission channels against perturbations such as sample tilt or wave front tilt. Our work shows that the hightransmission channels provide an enhanced field of view for memoryeffectbased imaging through diffusive media.

When formed through dynamical interactions, stellarmass binary black holes (BBHs) may retain eccentric orbits (e > 0.1 at 10 Hz) detectable by groundbased gravitationalwave detectors. Eccentricity can therefore be used to differentiate dynamically formed binaries from isolated BBH mergers. Current templatebased gravitationalwave searches do not use waveform models associated with eccentric orbits, rendering the search less efficient for eccentric binary systems. Here we present the results of a search for BBH mergers that inspiral in eccentric orbits using data from the first and second observing runs (O1 and O2) of Advanced LIGO and Advanced Virgo. We carried out the search ...

Probability Density Of The Fractional Langevin Equation With Reflecting Walls, Thomas Vojta, Sarah Skinner, Ralf Metzler

We investigate anomalous diffusion processes governed by the fractional Langevin equation and confined to a finite or semiinfinite interval by reflecting potential barriers. As the random and damping forces in the fractional Langevin equation fulfill the appropriate fluctuationdissipation relation, the probability density on a finite interval converges for long times towards the expected uniform distribution prescribed by thermal equilibrium. In contrast, on a semiinfinite interval with a reflecting wall at the origin, the probability density shows pronounced deviations from the Gaussian behavior observed for normal diffusion. If the correlations of the random force are persistent (positive), particles accumulate at the ...

Gravitationalwave astronomy has been firmly established with the detection of gravitational waves from the merger of ten stellarmass binary black holes and a neutron star binary. This paper reports on the allsky search for gravitational waves from intermediate mass black hole binaries in the first and second observing runs of the Advanced LIGO and Virgo network. The search uses three independent algorithms: two based on matched filtering of the data with waveform templates of gravitationalwave signals from compact binaries, and a third, modelindependent algorithm that employs no signal model for the incoming signal. No intermediate mass black hole binary event ...

We report an experimental and theoretical investigation into the dynamics of electronimpact ionization of Rcarvone. Experimental triple differential cross sections are obtained in asymmetric coplanar kinematic conditions for the ionization of the unresolved combination of the three outermost molecular orbitals (41a39a) of Rcarvone. These cross sections are compared with theoretical cross sections calculated within a molecular 3body distorted wave (M3DW) framework employing either a proper orientation average or orbital average to account for the random orientation of the molecule probed in the experiment. Here, we observe that the overall scattering behavior observed in the experiment is fairly well reproduced within ...

Proximityinduced superconductivity in threedimensional (3D) topological insulators forms a new quantum phase of matter and accommodates exotic quasiparticles such as Majorana bound states. One of the biggest drawbacks of the commonly studied 3D topological insulators is the presence of conducting bulk that obscures both surface states and low energy bound states. Introducing superconductivity in topological Kondo insulators such as SmB6, however, is promising due to their true insulating bulk at low temperatures. In this work, we develop an unconventional Josephson junction by coupling superconducting Nb leads to the surface states of a SmB6 crystal. We observe a robust critical current ...

Due to an error at the publisher, in the published article the number of pulsars presented in the paper is incorrect in multiple places throughout the text. Specifically, "222" pulsars should be "221." Additionally, the number of pulsars for which we have EM observations that fully overlap with O1 and O2 changes from "168" to "167." Elsewhere, in the machinereadable table of Table 1 and in Table 2, the row corresponding to pulsar J09520607 should be excised as well. Finally, in the caption for Table 2 the number of pulsars changes from "188" to "187." IOP Publishing sincerely regrets this ...

The stochastic gravitationalwave background is a superposition of sources that are either too weak or too numerous to detect individually. In this study, we present the results from a crosscorrelation analysis on data from Advanced LIGO's second observing run (O2), which we combine with the results of the first observing run (O1). We do not find evidence for a stochastic background, so we place upper limits on the normalized energy density in gravitational waves at the 95% credible level of Ω_{GW} < 6.0 x 10^{8} for a frequencyindependent (flat) background and Ω_{GW} < 4.8 x 10^{8} at 25 Hz for a background of ...

We perform an unmodeled search for persistent, directional gravitational wave (GW) sources using data from the first and second observing runs of Advanced LIGO. We do not find evidence for any GW signals. We place limits on the broadband GW flux emitted at 25 Hz from point sources with a power law spectrum at F_{α,Θ} < (0.0525) x 10^{−8} erg cm^{−2} s^{−1} Hz^{−1} and the (normalized) energy density spectrum in GWs at 25 Hz from extended sources at Ω_{α}(Θ) < (0.192.89) x 10^{−8} sr^{−1} where α is the spectral index of the energy density spectrum. These represent improvements ...

Lorentzviolating neutrino parameters have been severely constrained on the basis of astrophysical considerations. In the highenergy limit, one generally assumes a superluminal dispersion relation of an incoming neutrino of the form E≈ p ⃗v , where E is the energy, p ⃗ is the momentum and v ₌ √(1+ δ) > 1. Leptonpair creation due to a Cerenkovradiationlike process (ν → ν + е^{}+e^{+}) becomes possible above a certain energy threshold, and bounds on the Lorentzviolating parameter δ can be derived. Here, we investigate a related process, ν_{i}→ ν_{i}+ ν_{f}+ ν ‾_{f}, where ν_{i} is an incoming neutrino mass eigenstate, while ...

We demonstrate a possibility of using geometry to deterministically control nonlocal correlation of waves undergoing mesoscopic transport through a disordered waveguide. In case of nondissipative medium, we find an explicit relationship between correlation and the shape of the system. Inverting this relationship, we realize inverse design: we obtain specific waveguide shape that leads to a predetermined nonlocal correlation. The proposed technique offers an approach to coherent control of wave propagation in random media that is complementary to wavefront shaping.

Inflationary cosmology represents a wellstudied framework to describe the expansion of space in the early universe, as it explains the origin of the largescale structure of the cosmos and the isotropy of the cosmic microwave background radiation. The recent detection of the Higgs boson renewed research activities based on the assumption that the inflaton could be identified with the Higgs field. At the same time, the question whether the inflationary potential can be extended to the electroweak scale and whether it should be necessarily chosen ad hoc in order to be physically acceptable are at the center of an intense ...

Complex radiative transfer (RT) of the Lyman α photons poses a theoretical challenge to galaxy surveys that infer the largescale structure with Lyman α emitters (LAEs). Guided by RT simulations, prior studies investigated the impact of RT on the largescale LAE clustering, and claimed that RT induces a selection effect which results in an anisotropic distortion even in real space but in an otherwise negligible effect in redshift space. However, our previous study, which relies on a full RT code run on the Illustris simulations, shows that the anisotropic selection effect was drastically reduced with higher spatial resolution. Adopting the ...

Observing changes in molecular structure requires atomicscale Ångstrom and femtosecond spatiotemporal resolution. We use the Fourier transform (FT) variant of laserinduced electron diffraction (LIED), FTLIED, to directly retrieve the molecular structure of H_{2}O^{+} with picometer and femtosecond resolution without a priori knowledge of the molecular structure nor the use of retrieval algorithms or ab initio calculations. We identify a symmetrically stretched H_{2}O^{+} fielddressed structure that is most likely in the ground electronic state. We subsequently study the nuclear response of an isolated water molecule to an external laser field at four different field strengths. We show ...

We have previously used the molecular threebody distortedwave model to examine electronimpact single ionization of molecules. One of the possible weaknesses of this approach lies in the fact that the continuum electron wave functions do not depend on the orientation of the molecule. Here we introduce a model called the multicenter molecular threebody distortedwave (MCM3DW) approach, for which the continuum electron wave functions depend on the orientation of the molecule at the time of ionization. The MCM3DW results are compared with experimental data taken from work by Dorn and colleagues [Ren, Phys. Rev. A 91, 032707 (2015)10.1103/PhysRevA ...

The impact of anharmonicity on the vibrational entropy and heat capacity of UO2 has been investigated from 10 to 1200 K using inelastic neutronscattering measurements of the phonon density of states (PDOS). Small changes in the PDOS are observed from 10 to 295 K, with more noticeable changes appearing in the 750 and 1200K data. The specific heat determined from the PDOS measurements is in agreement with macroscopic specific heat measurements, and the overall impact of nondilation anharmonicity on the specific heat has been shown to be less than 2%. An analysis of the phonon measurements shows that the softening ...

Isolated spinning neutron stars, asymmetric with respect to their rotation axis, are expected to be sources of continuous gravitational waves. The most sensitive searches for these sources are based on accurate matched filtering techniques that assume the continuous wave to be phase locked with the pulsar beamed emission. While matched filtering maximizes the search sensitivity, a significant signaltonoise ratio loss will happen in the case of a mismatch between the assumed and the true signal phase evolution. Narrowband algorithms allow for a small mismatch in the frequency and spindown values of the pulsar while coherently integrating the entire dataset. In ...

We present a search for gravitational waves from 221 pulsars with rotation frequencies ≳ 10 Hz. We use advanced LIGO data from its first and second observing runs spanning 20152017, which provides the highestsensitivity gravitationalwave data so far obtained. In this search we target emission from both the l = m = 2 mass quadrupole mode, with a frequency at twice that of the pulsar's rotation, and the l = 2, m = 1 mode, with a frequency at the pulsar rotation frequency. The search finds no evidence for gravitationalwave emission from any pulsar at either frequency. For the l = m = 2 mode search ...
