  • LIDAR PROFILING IN THE LOWER TROPOSPHERE: EXPERIENCE FROM PECAN 

    Demoz, Belay; Delgado, Ruben; Caroll, Brian; Vermeesch, Kevin; Whiteman, David N.; Sakia, Ricardo; Tesfay, Sium; Cooper, Lorenzo (EPJ, 2018)
    Results from the PECAN (Plains Elevated Convection at Night) campaign are discussed. In particular, the utility of simple backscatter lidars/ceilometers in quantifying atmospheric dynamics parameters and variables as well ...
  • MIXED LAYER DEPTHS VIA DOPPLER LIDAR DURING LOW-LEVEL JET EVENTS 

    Carroll, Brian; Demoz, Belay; Bonin, Timothy; Delgado, Ruben (EPJ, 2018)
    A low-level jet (LLJ) is a prominent wind speed peak in the lower troposphere. Nocturnal LLJs have been shown to transport and mix atmospheric constituents from the residual layer down to the surface, breaching quiescent ...
  • Retrieval of aerosol properties and water-leaving reflectance from multi-angular polarimetric measurements over coastal waters 

    Gao, Meng; Zhai, Peng-Wang; Franz, Bryan; Hu, Yongxiang; Knobelspiesse, Kirk; Werdell, P. Jeremy; Amir, Ibrahim; Xu, Feng; Cairns, Brian (The Optical Society, 2018)
    Ocean color remote sensing is an important tool to monitor water quality and biogeochemical conditions of ocean. Atmospheric correction, which obtains water-leaving radiance from the total radiance measured by satellite-borne ...
  • Minimal dissipation in processes far from equilibrium 

    Bonanca, Marcus V.S.; Deffner, Sebastian (2018)
    central goal of thermodynamics is to identify optimal processes during which the least amount of energy is dissipated into the environment. Generally, even for simple systems, such as the parametric harmonic oscillator, ...
  • Carrier Dynamics, Optical Gain, and Lasing with Colloidal Quantum Wells 

    Yang, Zhili; Pelton, Matthew; Fedin, Igor; Talapin, Dmitri V.; Waks, Edo (ACS Publicaions, 2018)
    The most recent class of semiconductor nanocrystal to be synthesized colloidally is the quantum well, in which carriers are confined quantum mechanically in only one dimension. Electrons and holes in colloidal quantum wells ...
  • On the Nature of the High-Energy Rollover in 1H 0419-577 

    Turner, T, J.; Reeves, J. N.; Braito, V,; Costa, M. (Oxford Academic, 2018)
    A NuSTAR/Swift observation of the luminous Seyfert 1 galaxy 1H 0419-577 taken during 2015 reveals one of the most extreme high energy cut-offs observed to date from an AGN - an origin due to thermal Comptonization would ...
  • Single-footprint retrievals for AIRS using a fast TwoSlab cloud-representation model and the SARTA all-sky infrared radiative transfer algorithm 

    DeSouza-Machado, Sergio; Strow, L. Larrabee; Tangborn, Andrew; Huang, Xianglei; Chen, Xiuhong; Liu, Xu; Wu, Wan; Yang, Qiguang (Copernicus GmbH, 2018)
    One-dimensional variational retrievals of temperature and moisture fields from hyperspectral infrared (IR) satellite sounders use cloud-cleared radiances (CCRs) as their observation. These derived observations allow the ...
  • Quantum fluctuation theorem to benchmark quantum annealers 

    Gardas, Bartlomiej; Deffner, Sebstian (2018)
    Near term quantum hardware promises unprecedented computational advantage. Crucial in its development is the characterization and minimization of computational errors. We propose the use of the quantum fluctuation theorem ...
