• #### Probing Charm Quark Dynamics via Multiparticle Correlations in Pb-Pb Collisions at √sNN=5.02 TeV ﻿

(2022)
Multiparticle azimuthal correlations of prompt D0 mesons are measured in Pb-Pb collisions at a nucleon-nucleon center-of-mass energy of √sNN=5.02 TeV. For the first time, a four-particle cumulant method is used to extract the second Fourier coefficient of the azimuthal distribution (v2) of D0 mesons as a function of event centrality and the D0 ...
• #### Chemical and Physical Characterization of the Isolated Protostellar Source CB68: FAUST IV ﻿

(2022)
The chemical diversity of low-mass protostellar sources has so far been recognized, and environmental effects are invoked as its origin. In this context, observations of isolated protostellar sources without the influence of nearby objects are of particular importance. Here, we report the chemical and physical structures of the low-mass Class 0 ...
• #### K-point longitudinal acoustic phonons are responsible for ultrafast intervalley scattering in monolayer MoSe2 ﻿

(2022)
In transition metal dichalcogenides, valley depolarization through intervalley carrier scattering by zone-edge phonons is often unavoidable. Although valley depolarization processes related to various acoustic phonons have been suggested, their optical verification is still vague due to nearly degenerate phonon frequencies on acoustic phonon branches ...
• #### Anisotropic magnon damping by zero-temperature quantum fluctuations in ferromagnetic CrGeTe3 ﻿

(2022)
Spin and lattice are two fundamental degrees of freedom in a solid, and their fluctuations about the equilibrium values in a magnetic ordered crystalline lattice form quasiparticles termed magnons (spin waves) and phonons (lattice waves), respectively. In most materials with strong spin-lattice coupling (SLC), the interaction of spin and lattice ...
• #### Material radiopurity control in the XENONnT experiment ﻿

(2022)
The selection of low-radioactive construction materials is of the utmost importance for rare-event searches and thus critical to the XENONnT experiment. Results of an extensive radioassay program are reported, in which material samples have been screened with gamma-ray spectroscopy, mass spectrometry, and 222Rn emanation measurements. Furthermore, ...

(2022)
The main driven force of the electronic nematic phase in iron-based superconductors is still under debate. Here, we report a comprehensive study on the nematic fluctuations in a non-superconducting iron pnictide system BaFe1.9−xNi0.1CrxAs2 by electronic transport, angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy (ARPES), and inelastic neutron scattering ...
• #### The Dynamic Evolution of Solar Wind Streams Following Interchange Reconnection ﻿

(2022)
Interchange reconnection is thought to play an important role in determining the dynamics and material composition of the slow solar wind that originates from near coronal-hole boundaries. To explore the implications of this process we simulate the dynamic evolution of a solar wind stream along a newly-opened magnetic flux tube. The initial condition ...
• #### Geodesic geometry of 2+1-D Dirac materials subject to artificial, quenched gravitational singularities ﻿

(2022)
The spatial modulation of the Fermi velocity for gapless Dirac electrons in quantum materials is mathematically equivalent to the problem of massless fermions on a certain class of curved spacetime manifolds. We study null geodesic lensing through these manifolds, which are dominated by curvature singularities, such as nematic singularity walls (where ...
• #### Observation of the B+c Meson in Pb-Pb and pp Collisions at √sNN=5.02 TeV and Measurement of its Nuclear Modification Factor ﻿

(2022)
The B+c meson is observed for the first time in heavy ion collisions. Data from the CMS detector are used to study the production of the B+c meson in lead-lead (Pb-Pb) and proton-proton (pp) collisions at a center-of-mass energy per nucleon pair of √sNN=5.02 TeV, via the B+c→(J/ψ→μ+μ−)μ+νμ decay. The B+c nuclear modification factor, derived from the ...
• #### Emission of single and few electrons in XENON1T and limits on light dark matter ﻿

(2022)
Delayed single- and few-electron emissions plague dual-phase time projection chambers, limiting their potential to search for light-mass dark matter. This paper examines the origins of these events in the XENON1T experiment. Characterization of the intensity of delayed electron backgrounds shows that the resulting emissions are correlated, in time ...
