The high energy X-ray tail of Eta Car revealed by BeppoSAXFeb 13 2004We report on the June 2000 long (100 ks) BeppoSAX exposure that has unveiled above 10 keV a new very high energy component of the X-ray spectrum of Eta Car extending to at least 50 keV. We find that the 2-150 keV spectrum is best reproduced by a thermal ... More

Inhomogeneity and nonlinear screening in gapped bilayer grapheneApr 25 2012Nov 05 2012We demonstrate that for gapped bilayer graphene, the nonlinear nature of the screening of an external disorder potential and the resulting inhomogeneity of the electron liquid are crucial for describing the electronic compressibility. In particular, traditional ... More

Properties of X-Ray Rich Gamma Ray Bursts and X-Ray Flashes detected with BeppoSAX and Hete-2Nov 09 2005Aug 08 2006We study the spectrum of the prompt emission and the X-ray and optical afterglow fluxes of 54 X-Ray Rich Gamma Ray Burst (XRRs) and X-Ray Flashes (XRFs), observed by BeppoSax and HETE-2. A comparison is then performed with classical Gamma Ray Bursts (GRBs). ... More

Zero-point vacancies in quantum solidsJun 13 2008A Jastrow wave function (JWF) and a shadow wave function (SWF) describe a quantum solid with Bose--Einstein condensate; i.e. a supersolid. It is known that both JWF and SWF describe a quantum solid with also a finite equilibrium concentration of vacancies ... More

Quantized vortices in two dimensional solid 4HeNov 08 2011Diagonal and off-diagonal properties of 2D solid 4He systems doped with a quantized vortex have been investigated via the Shadow Path Integral Ground State method using the fixed-phase approach. The chosen approximate phase induces the standard Onsager-Feynman ... More
