Abundance patterns and rates of nuclear energy production are obtained for different ejecta conditions ... More

Scattering of Waves by Impurities in Precompressed Granular ChainsFeb 28 2016May 26 2016We study scattering of waves by impurities in strongly precompressed granular chains. We explore the linear scattering of plane waves and identify a closed-form expression for the reflection and transmission coefficients for the scattering of the waves ... More

Asymmetric Heat Transport in Ion CrystalsMay 28 2019We numerically demonstrate heat rectification for linear chains of ions in trap lattices with graded trapping frequencies, in contact with thermal baths implemented by optical molasses. To calculate the local temperatures and heat currents we find the ... More

Direct measurement of superdiffusive and subdiffusive energy transport in disordered granular chainsMay 22 2017The study of energy transport properties in heterogeneous materials has attracted scientific interest for more than a century, and it continues to offer fundamental and rich questions. One of the unanswered challenges is to extend Anderson theory for ... More
