Nondegeneracy of half-harmonic maps from $\mathbb{R}$ into $\mathbb{S}^1$Jan 13 2017We prove that the standard half-harmonic map $U:\mathbb{R}\to\mathbb{S}^1$ defined by \begin{equation*} x\to \begin{pmatrix} \frac{x^2-1}{x^2+1} \frac{-2x}{x^2+1} \end{pmatrix} \end{equation*} is nondegenerate in the sense that all bounded solutions of ...

The design and the performance of an ultrahigh vacuum 3He fridge-based scanning tunneling microscope with a double deck sample stage for in-situ tip treatmentMay 21 2018Nov 11 2018Scanning tunneling microscope (STM) is a powerful tool for studying the structural and electronic properties of materials at the atomic scale. The combination of low temperature and high magnetic field for STM and related spectroscopy techniques allows ... More

Low-Metallicity Star Formation in High-Redshift Galaxies at z~8Sep 28 2010Oct 27 2010Based on the recent very deep near-infrared imaging of the Hubble Ultra Deep Field with WFC3 on the Hubble Space Telescope, five groups published most probable samples of galaxies at z~8, selected by the so-called dropout method or photometric redshift; ...
