Indication of Electron Neutrino Appearance from an Accelerator-produced Off-axis Muon Neutrino BeamJun 14 2011Jul 25 2011The T2K experiment observes indications of $\nu_\mu\rightarrow \nu_e$ appearance in data accumulated with $1.43\times10^{20}$ protons on target. Six events pass all selection criteria at the far detector. In a three-flavor neutrino oscillation scenario ... More
Terahertz time-domain spectroscopy of transient metallic and superconducting statesJun 22 2015Jun 24 2015Time-resolved terahertz time-domain spectroscopy (THz-TDS) is an ideal tool for probing photoinduced nonequilibrium metallic and superconducting states. Here, we focus on the interpretation of the two-dimensional response function $\Sigma(\omega;t)$ that ... More
Modeling the 2010 blast wave of the symbiotic-like nova V407 CygniSep 23 2011(Abridged) The symbiotic-like binary Mira and nova V407 Cyg was observed in outburst on March 2010 and monitored in several wavelength bands. Here we report on multi-dimensional hydrodynamic simulations describing the 2010 outburst of V407 Cyg, exploring ... More
