X-ray gas belts and radio source feedback in low-redshift radio galaxies

This thesis studies how typical nearby radio sources are participating in radio plasma-gas interactions, with a specific emphasis on understanding the occurrence, morphologies and origins of X-ray


▪ Abstract Since the first radio astronomy observations in the 1930s, the angular resolution of radio telescopes has improved from tens of degrees to better than one thousandth of a second of arc.

Event-by-event investigation of the two-particle source function in $\sqrt{s_{_{\text{NN}}}}=2.76$ TeV PbPb collisions with EPOS

The investigation of the two-particle source function in lead-lead collisions simulated by the EPOS model at a center of mass energy per nucleon pair of √ sNN = 2.76 TeV is presented. The

Identifying unbound strong bunching and the breakdown of the Rotating Wave Approximation in the quantum Rabi model

We use a recently derived gauge-invariant formulation of the problem of an incoherently-driven two-level system coupled to an optical cavity, to explore the transition between different coupling

Loss of antibunching

We describe some of the main external mechanisms that lead to a loss of antibunching, i.e., that spoil the character of a given quantum light to deliver its photons separated the ones from the

Superconducting nanowire single-photon detectors: A perspective on evolution, state-of-the-art, future developments, and applications

An outlook on technological developments required to bring SNSPDs to the next level: a photon-counting, fast time-tagging imaging, and multi-pixel technology that is also compatible with quantum photonic integrated circuits.

History of Astronomy in Australia: Big-Impact Astronomy from World War II until the Lunar Landing (1945–1969)

Radio astronomy commenced in earnest after World War II, with Australia keenly engaged through the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research. At this juncture, Australia’s Commonwealth Solar

Reconstruction of an electromagnetic Gaussian Schell-model source from far-zone intensity measurements.

This work shows how far-zone measurements of the Stokes parameters, together with the Hanbury Brown-Twiss coefficient, allow one to determine all the source parameters, and provides a new tool to identify distant sources.

Conventional and Unconventional Photon Statistics

The photon statistics emitted by a large variety of light‐matter systems under weak coherent driving can be understood, to lowest order in the driving, in the framework of an admixture of (or



A Search for Long-Period Variations in the Intensity of Radio Stars

CERTAIN classes of visible star are characterized by well-marked variations of intensity; the period of these variations may be as short as a few hours, or as long as several hundred days. In this

A New Intense Source of Radio-Frequency Radiation in the Constellation of Cassiopeia

THE discovery by Hey, Parsons and Phillips1,2 of a variable source of radio-frequency radiation in the constellation of Cygnus suggested that at least part of the galactic radiation was due to very

Variable Source of Radio Frequency Radiation in the Constellation of Cygnus

COSMIC or galactic noise was discovered by Jansky1 in 1931; but its exact origin has remained uncertain. It is generally supposed to originate from collisions in interstellar matter2; but there are
