Photonic Crystals: Molding the Flow of Light
Since it was first published in 1995, Photonic Crystals has remained the definitive text for both undergraduates and researchers on photonic band-gap materials and their use in controlling theExpand
A super-Earth transiting a nearby low-mass star
Observations of the transiting planet GJ’1214b are reported, finding that the planetary mass and radius are consistent with a composition of primarily water enshrouded by a hydrogen–helium envelope that is only 0.05% of the mass of the planet. Expand
CRATES: An All-Sky Survey of Flat-Spectrum Radio Sources
We have assembled an 8.4 GHz survey of bright, flat-spectrum ({alpha} > -0.5) radio sources with nearly uniform extragalactic (|b| > 10{sup o}) coverage for sources brighter than S{sub 4.8 GHz} = 65Expand
Improved Parameters for Extrasolar Transiting Planets
We present refined values for the physical parameters of transiting exoplanets, based on a self-consistent and uniform analysis of transit light curves and the observable properties of the hostExpand
Kepler-16: A Transiting Circumbinary Planet
The detection of a planet whose orbit surrounds a pair of low-mass stars, comparable to Saturn in mass and size and on a nearly circular 229-day orbit around its two parent stars, suggests that the planet formed within a circumbinary disk. Expand
We show that stars with transiting planets for which the stellar obliquity is large are preferentially hot (T_(eff) > 6250 K). This could explain why small obliquities were observed in the earliestExpand
The Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite: Simulations of planet detections and astrophysical false positives
The Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) is a NASA-sponsored Explorer mission that will perform a wide-field survey for planets that transit bright host stars. Here, we predict the propertiesExpand
Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS)
The Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS ) will search for planets transiting bright and nearby stars. TESS has been selected by NASA for launch in 2017 as an Astrophysics Explorer mission.Expand
Photonic Crystals: Molding the Flow of Light - Second Edition
John D. Joannopoulos, Steven G. Johnson, Joshua N. Winn & Robert D. Meade: Photonic Crystals: Molding the Flow of Light (Second Edition) is published by Princeton University Press and copyrighted, ©Expand
Transiting circumbinary planets Kepler-34 b and Kepler-35 b
The observed rate of circumbinary planets in this sample implies that more than ∼1% of close binary stars have giant planets in nearly coplanar orbits, yielding a Galactic population of at least several million. Expand
