FLUX ENHANCEMENT OF SLOW-MOVING PARTICLES BY SUN OR JUPITER: CAN THEY BE DETECTED ON EARTH?

- B. Patla, R. Nemiroff, D. Hoffmann, K. Zioutas
- Physics, Geology
- 10 May 2013

Slow-moving particles capable of interacting solely with gravity might be detected on Earth as a result of the gravitational lensing induced focusing action of the Sun. The deflection experienced by… Expand

Gravitational Lensing Characteristics of the Transparent Sun

- B. Patla, R. Nemiroff
- Physics
- 29 November 2007

The transparent Sun is modeled as a spherically symmetric and centrally condensed gravitational lens using recent standard solar model (SSM) data. The Sun's minimum focal length is computed to a… Expand

An exposition on Friedmann cosmology with negative energy densities

- R. Nemiroff, R. Joshi, B. Patla
- Physics
- 18 February 2014

How would negative energy density affect a classic Friedmann cosmology? Although never measured and possibly unphysical, certain realizations of quantum field theories leaves the door open for such a… Expand

Simulations of the Hadamard Variance: Probability Distributions and Confidence Intervals

TLDR

A null test of general relativity based on a long-term comparison of atomic transition frequencies

The local position invariance principle of general relativity stipulates that non-gravitational experiments should give outcomes that are independent of the position and orientation of the reference… Expand

The Effects of the January 2016 UTC Offset Anomaly on GPS-Controlled Clocks Monitored at NIST

- J. Yao, M. Lombardi, A. Novick, B. Patla, J. Sherman, V. Zhang
- Geology
- 2 February 2017

Errors in the Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) offset parameters broadcast by Global Positioning System (GPS) satellites caused many thousands of GPS-controlled clocks to be in error by approximately… Expand

Adventures in Friedmann cosmology: A detailed expansion of the cosmological Friedmann equations

- R. Nemiroff, B. Patla
- Physics
- 28 March 2007

The general relativistic cosmological Friedmann equations, which describe how the scale factor of the universe evolves, are expanded explicitly to include energy forms not usually seen. The evolution… Expand

Design and characteristics of a WEP test in a sounding-rocket payload

- R. Reasenberg, B. Patla, J. D. Phillips, R. Thapa
- Physics
- 31 May 2012

We describe SR-POEM, a Galilean test of the weak equivalence principle that is to be conducted during the free fall portion of the flight of a sounding rocket payload. This test of a single pair of… Expand

Small Angle Approximation for Non-parallel Plate Capacitors with Applications in Experimental Gravitation

- B. Patla
- Physics
- 14 August 2012

An approximate analytical formula for the capacitance of a non-parallel plate capacitor with small values of inclination angles and distance separations of the plates is presented. Most applications… Expand
