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

Masses, Radii, and Orbits of Small Kepler Planets: The Transition From Gaseous to Rocky Planets
We report on the masses, sizes, and orbits of the planets orbiting 22 Kepler stars. There are 49 planet candidates around these stars, including 42 detected through transits and 7 revealed by preciseExpand

Photon migration of near-diffusive photons in turbid media: a Lagrangian-based approach.
We show that light transport in a turbid medium can be described by a path integral with a quasi-particle Lagrangian. The most probable trajectory over which photons can be found can be obtained fromExpand

Distribution of the paths of early-arriving photons traversing a turbid medium.
We describe experiments to measure the spatial and the temporal distribution of photons traversing a turbid medium in the early-arriving regime in which the photons are multiply scattered but are notExpand
