    We study the quantum phase transitions in the nickel pnctides, CeNi2−δ(As1−xPx)2 (δ ≈ 0.07–0.22) polycrystalline samples. This series displays the distinct heavy fermion behavior in the rarely studied parameter regime of ...
  • Tunneling noise and defects in exfoliated hexagonal boron nitride 

    Zhao, Xuanhan; Zhou, Panpan; Chen, Liyang; Watanabe, Kenji; Taniguchi, Takashi; Natelson, Douglas (2019)
    Hexagonal boron nitride (hBN) has become a mainstay as an insulating barrier in stackable nanoelectronics because of its large bandgap and chemical stability. At mono- and bilayer thicknesses, hBN can function as a tunnel ...
  • Phase of confined electroweak force in the early Universe 

    Berger, Joshua; Long, Andrew J.; Turner, Jessica (2019)
    We consider a modified cosmological history in which the presence of beyond-the-Standard-Model physics causes the weak gauge sector, SU(2)L, to confine before it is Higgsed. Under the assumption of chiral symmetry breaking, ...

  • Parametric Excitation of a Bose-Einstein Condensate: From Faraday Waves to Granulation 

    Nguyen, J.H.V.; Tsatsos, M.C.; Luo, D.; Lode, A.U.J.; Telles, G.D.; Bagnato, V.S.; Hulet, R.G. (2019)
    We explore, both experimentally and theoretically, the response of an elongated Bose-Einstein condensate to modulated interactions. We identify two distinct regimes differing in modulation frequency and modulation strength. ...
  • Cosmological dynamics of Higgs potential fine tuning 

    Amin, Mustafa A.; Fan, JiJi; Lozanov, Kaloian D.; Reece, Matthew (2019)
    The Higgs potential appears to be fine-tuned, hence very sensitive to values of other scalar fields that couple to the Higgs. We show that this feature can lead to a new epoch in the early Universe featuring violent dynamics ...
  • Magnesium controls aptamer-expression platform switching in the SAM-I riboswitch 

    Roy, Susmita; Hennelly, Scott P.; Lammert, Heiko; Onuchic, José N.; Sanbonmatsu, Karissa Y. (2019)
    Investigations of most riboswitches remain confined to the ligand-binding aptamer domain. However, during the riboswitch mediated transcription regulation process, the aptamer domain and the expression platform compete for ...

    Li, Xuefei; Jolly, Mohit Kumar; George, Jason T.; Pienta, Kenneth J.; Levine, Herbert (2019)
    Tumor microenvironments contain multiple cell types interacting among one another via different signaling pathways. Furthermore, both cancer cells and different immune cells can display phenotypic plasticity in response ...

Robles; Tam, David W.; Li, Tong; Lupini, Andrew R.; Idrobo, Juan Carlos; Lou, Jun; Wei, Bingqing; Dai, Pengcheng; Tiwary, Chandra Sekhar; Ajayan, Pulickel M. (2019)
    Upcoming advancements in flexible technology require mechanically compliant dielectric materials. Current dielectrics have either high dielectric constant, K (e.g., metal oxides) or good flexibility (e.g., polymers). Here, ...
  • Design of organic structure directing agents for polymorph A zeolite beta 

    Daeyaert, Frits; Deem, Michael W. (2019)
    Zeolite beta is a crystalline material with layer-type faulting. The two end members with perfect crystalline order are beta A and beta B. While zeolite beta in faulted form is a widely used industrial catalyst, additional ...
