Charge transfer in the high dielectric constant materials CaCu3Ti4O12 and CdCu3Ti4O12Sep 16 2002The cubic perovskite-related ceramic CaCu3Ti4O12 has a very high static dielectric constant ~10000 at room temperature (RT), which drops to about 100 below about 100 K. Substituting Cd for Ca reduces the RT value of the dielectric constant by over an ... More

The GJ 876 Planetary System -- A Progress ReportJul 21 2004We present an updated analysis of the GJ 876 planetary system based on an augmented data set that incorporates 65 new high-precision radial velocities obtained with the Keck telescope from 2001 to 2004. These new radial velocities permit a more accurate ... More

Temperature dependent total scattering structural study of CaCu3Ti4O12Mar 11 2003X-ray and neutron powder diffraction data as a function of temperature are analyzed for the colossal dielectric constant material CaCu3Ti4O12. The local structure is studied using atomic pair distribution function analysis. No evidence is found for enhanced ... More

A transportable optical lattice clock with $7\times10^{-17}$ uncertaintySep 20 2016We present a transportable optical clock (TOC) with $^{87}$Sr. Its complete characterization against a stationary lattice clock resulted in a systematic uncertainty of ${7.4 \times 10^{-17}}$ which is currently limited by the statistics of the determination ...
