Influence of Stoichiometry on the Optical and Electrical Properties of Chemical Vapor Deposition Derived MoS$_{2}$Sep 18 2014Ultrathin transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDCs) of Mo and W show great potential for digital electronics and optoelectronic applications. Whereas early studies were limited to mechanically exfoliated flakes, the large-area synthesis of 2D TMDCs has ... More
Imaging the water-snow line during a protostellar outburstJul 13 2016Jul 14 2016A snow-line is the region of a protoplanetary disk at which a major volatile, such as water or carbon monoxide, reaches its condensation temperature. Snow-lines play a crucial role in disk evolution by promoting the rapid growth of ice-covered grains. ... More
Enabling FAIR Research in Earth Science through Research ObjectsSep 27 2018Data-intensive science communities are progressively adopting FAIR practices that enhance the visibility of scientific breakthroughs and enable reuse. At the core of this movement, research objects contain and describe scientific information and resources ... More
Analysis of Muon Events in the DHCALFeb 29 2012Apr 13 2012The Digital Hadron Calorimeter (DHCAL) is a large prototype of an imaging calorimeter using Resistive Plate Chambers (RPCs) as active media. The readout is segmented into 1\times1 cm2 pads, each with a single bit resolution, hence the denomination of ... More
The Signature of a ManifoldAug 10 2005Jun 01 2015Let us consider a compact oriented riemannian manifold M without boundary and of dimension n=4k. The signature of M is defined as the signature of a given quadratic form Q. Two different products could be used to define Q and they render equivalent definitions: ... More
A notion of selective ultrafilter corresponding to topological Ramsey spacesOct 24 2005We introduce the relation of "almost-reduction" in an arbitrary topological Ramsey space R, as a generalization of the relation of "almost-inclusion" on the space of infinite sets of natural numbers (the Ellentuck space). This leads us to a type of ultrafilter ... More
The Fractal Geometry of the Cosmic Web and its FormationOct 04 2018Nov 29 2018The cosmic web structure is studied with the concepts and methods of fractal geometry, employing the adhesion model of cosmological dynamics as a basic reference. The structures of matter clusters and cosmic voids in N-body simulations or the Sloan Digital ... More
