  • Wide-field multiphoton imaging through scattering media without correction 

    Escobet-Montalbán, Adrià; Spesyvtsev, Roman; Chen, Mingzhou; Saber, Wardiya Afshar; Andrews, Melissa; Herrington, C. Simon; Mazilu, Michael; Dholakia, Kishan (2018-10-12) - Journal article
    Optical approaches to fluorescent, spectroscopic and morphological imaging have made exceptional advances in the last decade. Super-resolution imaging and wide-field multiphoton imaging are now underpinning major advances ...
  • Exonephology : transmission spectra from a 3D simulated cloudy atmosphere of HD 209458b 

    Lines, S.; Manners, J.; Mayne, N. J.; Goyal, J.; Carter, A. L.; Boutle, I. A.; Lee, G. K. H.; Helling, Ch; Drummond, B.; Acreman, D. M.; Sing, D. K. (2018-11-21) - Journal article
    We present high-resolution transmission spectra, calculated directly from a 3D radiative hydrodynamic simulation that includes kinetic cloud formation, for HD 209458b. We find that the high opacity of our vertically extensive ...
  • Tunable light-matter hybridization in open organic microcavities 

    Betzold, Simon; Herbst, Stefanie; Trichet, Aurélien A. P.; Smith, Jason M.; Würthner, Frank; Höfling, Sven; Dietrich, Christof (2018-01-17) - Journal article
    Open microcavities represent a versatile cavity design that allows the external control of internal properties such as cavity thickness and mode detuning without changing the key parameters of the cavity itself, rendering ...
  • Discovery of WASP-174b : Doppler tomography of a near-grazing transit 

    Temple, L. Y.; Hellier, C.; Almleaky, Y.; Anderson, D. R.; Bouchy, F.; Brown, D. J. A.; Burdanov, A.; Cameron, A. Collier; Delrez, L.; Gillon, M.; Hall, R.; Jehin, E.; Lendl, M.; Maxted, P. F. L.; Nielsen, L. D.; Pepe, F.; Pollacco, D.; Queloz, D.; Ségransan, D.; Smalley, B.; Sohy, S.; Thompson, S.; Triaud, A. H. M. J.; Turner, O. D.; Udry, S.; West, R. G. (2018-11-11) - Journal article
    We report the discovery and tomographic detection of WASP-174b, a planet with a near-grazing transit on a 4.23-d orbit around a V= 11.9, F6V star with [Fe/H] = 0.09 ± 0.09. The planet is in a moderately misaligned orbit ...
  • Coherent 24 GHz FMCW radar system for micro-Doppler studies 

    Rahman, Samiur; Robertson, Duncan Alexander (SPIE, 2018-05-04) - Conference item
    This paper presents the hardware design of a coherent 24 GHz radar system developed at the University of St Andrews to obtain micro-Doppler data. The system is based on the Analog Devices EV-RADAR-MMIC2 evaluation board ...
