Probing Relativistic Jets with Radio Observations: The Case Study of GW170817
Kate Alexander, Harvard University
Event Type: Astro Seminar

Date: Tuesday, December 11, 2018

Time: 2:00 PM - 3:15 PM

Location: 726 Broadway, 940, CCPP Seminar

Description: With the advent of sensitive facilities like the Karl G. Jansky Very Large Array (VLA) and planning well underway for vastly more powerful wide-field interferometers like the Square Kilometer Array, the study of radio astrophysical transients is poised for dramatic growth. Radio observations provide a unique window into a wide variety of astrophysical transients, from gamma-ray bursts to tidal disruptions of stars by supermassive black holes. In these high-energy laboratories, the longer timescale of radio emission allows for extensive followup, probing the physics underlying the formation and growth of relativistic jets and outflows. I will present radio observations of GW170817, the first binary neutron star merger observed in gravitational waves. Our full multi-wavelength dataset (Alexander et al. 2018) is consistent with a successful structured jet expanding into a low-density circumbinary medium. Future events will shed light on the question of whether all binary neutron star mergers produce successful relativistic jets.

Date: Thursday, December 13, 2018

Time: 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Location: 726 Broadway, 940, CCPP Seminar

Description: Today’s electronic technology – the pixels on the screen and the process to print the words on the page – are all made possible by the controlled motion of an electron’s charge. In the last decade, the discovery of topological band insulators with robust spin-polarized surface states has launched a new subfield of physics promising a new paradigm in computing. When topology is combined with strong electron correlations, even more interesting states of matter can arise, suggesting additional applications in quantum computing. Here we present the first direct proof of a strongly correlated topological insulator. Using scanning tunneling microscopy to probe the real and momentum space structure of SmB6, we quantify the opening of a Kondo insulating gap. Within that gap, we discover linearly dispersing surface states with the heaviest observed Dirac states in any material – hundreds of times the mass of a free electron. We show how single atom defects can scatter these surface states, and we take the first steps towards manipulating single atoms and thus controlling surface states and their excitations at the nanoscale.
