  • Multiwavelength stellar polarimetry of the filamentary cloud IC5146. I. Dust properties 

    Wang, Jia-Wei; Lai, Shih-Ping; Eswaraiah, Chakali; Clemens, Dan P.; Chen, Wen-Ping; Pandey, Anil K. (IOP PUBLISHING LTD, 2017-11-10)
    We present optical and near-infrared stellar polarization observations toward the dark filamentary clouds associated with IC5146. The data allow us to investigate the dust properties (this paper) and the magnetic field ...

    Larionov, V.M.; Villata, M.; Raiteri, C.M.; Jorstad, S.G.; Marscher, A.P.; Agudo, I.; Smith, P.S.; Acosta-Pulido, J.A.; Arevalo, M.J.; Arkharov, A.A.; Bachev, R.; Blinov, D.A.; Borisov, G.; Borman, G.A.; Bozhilov, V.; Bueno, A.; Carnerero, M.I.; Carosati, D.; Casadio, C.; Chen, W.P.; Clemens, D.P.; Di Paola, A.; Ehgamberdiev, Sh. A.; Gomez, J.L.; Gonzalez-Morales, P.A.; Grinon-Marin, A.; Grishina, T.S.; Hagen-Thorn, V.A.; Ibryamov, S.; Itoh, R.; Joshi, M.; Kopatskaya, E.N.; Koptelova, E.; Lazaro, C.; Larionova, E.G.; Larionova, L.V.; Manilla-Robles, A.; Metodieva, Y.; Milanova, Yu V.; Mirzaqulov, D.O.; Molina, S.N.; Morozova, D.A.; Nazarov, S.V.; Ovcharov, E.; Peneva, S.; Ros, J.A.; Sadun, A.C.; Savchenko, S.S.; Semkov, E.; Sergeev, S.G.; Strigachev, A.; Troitskaya, Yu V.; Troitsky, I.S. (OXFORD UNIV PRESS, 2016-09-21)
    After several years of quiescence, the blazar CTA 102 underwent an exceptional outburst in 2012 September–October. The flare was tracked from γ-ray to near-infrared (NIR) frequencies, including Fermi and Swift data as well ...
  • Open clusters as probes of the galactic magnetic field. I. Cluster properties 

    Hoq, Sadia; Clemens, D. P. (2015-10-01)
    Stars in open clusters are powerful probes of the intervening Galactic magnetic field via background starlight polarimetry because they provide constraints on the magnetic field distances. We use 2MASS photometric data for ...
  • O/IR polarimetry for the 2010 decade (CGT): Science at the edge, sharp tools for all

    Science opportunities and recommendations concerning optical/infrared polarimetry for the upcoming decade in the field of extragalactic astrophysics. Community-based White Paper to Astro2010 in response to the call for ...
  • Individual differences in human path integration abilities correlate with gray matter volume in retrosplenial cortex, hippocampus, and medial prefrontal cortex 

    Chrastil, Elizabeth R.; Sherrill, Katherine R.; Aselcioglu, Irem; Hasselmo, Michael E.; Stern, Chantal E. (2017-03)
    Humans differ in their individual navigational abilities. These individual differences may exist in part because successful navigation relies on several disparate abilities, which rely on different brain structures. One ...
  • The magnetic field of L1544. I. Near-infrared polarimetry and the non-uniform envelope 

    Clemens, Dan P.; Tassis, K.; Goldsmith, Paul F. (2016-12-20)
    The magnetic field (B-field) of the starless dark cloud L1544 has been studied using near-infrared (NIR) background starlight polarimetry (BSP) and archival data in order to characterize the properties of the plane-of-sky ...

  • Recent H-alpha results on pulsar B2224+65's bow-shock nebula, the "Guitar" 

    Dolch, Timothy; Chatterjee, Shami; Clemens, Dan P.; Cordes, James M.; Cashmen, Lauren R.; Taylor, Brian W. (The Korean Space Science Society, 2016-09-15)
    We used the 4 m Discovery Channel Telescope (DCT) at Lowell observatory in 2014 to observe the Guitar Nebula, an Hα bow-shock nebula around the high-velocity radio pulsar B2224+65. Since the nebula`s discovery in 1992, the ...
