Apparatus for dry deposition of aerosols on snow
Deposition of light-absorbing aerosol on snow can drastically change the albedo of the snow surface and the energy balance of the snowpack. To study these important effects experimentally and to compare them with theory, ...
Levitated optomechanics with a fiber Fabry-Perot interferometer
In recent years, quantum phenomena have been experimentally demonstrated on variety of optomechanical systems ranging from micro-oscillators to photonic crystals. Since single photon couplings are quite small, most ...
Self-generated surface magnetic fields inhibit laser-driven sheath acceleration of high-energy protons
High-intensity lasers interacting with solid foils produce copious numbers of relativistic electrons, which in turn create strong sheath electric fields around the target. The proton beams accelerated in such fields have ...
Separating Dipole and Quadrupole Contributions to Single-Photon Double Ionization
We report on a kinematically complete measurement of double ionization of helium by a single 1100 eV circularly polarized photon. By exploiting dipole selection rules in the two-electron continuum state, we observed the ...
Development of a Multispectral Albedometer and Deployment on an Unmanned Aircraft for Evaluating Satellite Retrieved Surface Reflectance over Nevada's Black Rock Desert
Bright surfaces across the western U.S. lead to uncertainties in satellite derived aerosol optical depth (AOD) where AOD is typically overestimated. With this in mind, a compact and portable instrument was developed to ...
Magnetized fast isochoric laser heating for efficient creation of ultra-high-energy-density states
Fast isochoric heating of a pre-compressed plasma core with a high-intensity short-pulse laser is an attractive and alternative approach to create ultra-high-energy-density states like those found in inertial confinement ...
Experimental platform for investigations of high-intensity laser plasma interactions in the magnetic field of a pulsed power generator
An experimental platform for the studying of high-intensity laser plasma interactions in strong magnetic fields has been developed based on the 1 MA Zebra pulsed power generator coupled with the 50-TW Leopard laser. The ...
A Primer on Pulsed Power and Linear Transformer Drivers for High Energy Density Physics Applications
The objectives of this tutorial are as follows: 1) to help students and researchers develop a basic understanding of how pulsed-power systems are used to create high-energy-density (HED) matter
Conditional summertime day-ahead solar irradiance forecast
We investigated the accuracy of numerical weather prediction (NWP)-based global horizontal irradiance (Gill) and clear-sky index forecasting over southern Nevada. Accurate forecasts of solar irradiance are required for ...
GIA Model Statistics for GRACE Hydrology, Cryosphere, and Ocean Science
We provide a new analysis of glacial isostatic adjustment (GIA) with the goal of assembling the model uncertainty statistics required for rigorously extracting trends in surface mass from the Gravity Recovery and Climate ...
