Thermal Evolution of Neutron Stars as a Probe of Physics beyond the Standard Model
Thermal evolution of neutron stars (NSs) is studied as a probe of physics beyond the standard model. We first review the standard cooling theory of NSs in detail, with an emphasis on the roles ofExpand
Limit on the axion decay constant from the cooling neutron star in Cassiopeia A
The observed rapid cooling of the neutron star (NS) located at the center of the supernova remnant Cassiopeia A (Cas A) can be explained in the minimal NS cooling scenario. This consequence may beExpand
Molecular gas toward supernova remnant Cassiopeia A
We mapped 12CO J=1-0, 12CO J=2-1, 13CO J=1-0, and 13CO J=2-1 lines toward supernova remnant (SNR) Cassiopeia A with the IRAM 30m telescope. The molecular clouds (MCs) along the line of sight of Cas AExpand
X-Ray absorption in young core-collapse supernova remnants
The material expelled by core-collapse supernova (SN) explosions absorbs X-rays from the central regions. We use SN models based on three-dimensional neutrino-driven explosions to estimate optical ...
Recent searches for continuous gravitational waves
Gravitational wave astronomy opened dramatically in September 2015 with the LIGO discovery of a distant and massive binary black hole coalescence. The more recent discovery of a binary neutron starExpand
Gravitational Waves: Sources, Detectors and Searches
Abstract Gravitational wave science should transform in this decade from a study of what has not been seen to a full-fledged field of astronomy in which detected signals reveal the nature ofExpand
Probing interstellar dust with infrared echoes from the Cas A supernova
We present the analysis of an Infrared Spectrograph 5-38 μm spectrum and Multiband Imaging Photometer for Spitzer photometric measurements of an infrared echo near the Cassiopeia A (Cas A) supernovaExpand
Thin nonthermal X-ray filaments are often seen in young supernova remnants. We used data from the 1 Ms Chandra observation of Cassiopeia A to study spectral properties of some of the filaments inExpand
Searching for prompt signatures of nearby core-collapse supernovae by a joint analysis of neutrino and gravitational wave data
We discuss the science motivations and prospects for a joint analysis of gravitational wave (GW) and low-energy neutrino data to search for prompt signals from nearby supernovae (SNe). BothExpand
Gravitational waves from accreting neutron stars and Cassiopeia A
An Australian Postgraduate Award, an ANU Vice-Chancellor's Supplementary Scholarship, and from the Australian Research Council through grants DP0451021, SR0567380, and DP0770426. The LIGO HanfordExpand
