Variability-Selected Low-Luminosity Active Galactic Nuclei in the 4 Ms Chandra Deep Field-South (open access)

Variability-Selected Low-Luminosity Active Galactic Nuclei in the 4 Ms Chandra Deep Field-South

This article demonstrates that the observed variability cannot be explained by X-ray Binary populations or ultraluminous X-ray sources, so the variability is most likely caused by accretion onto a supermassive black hole.

Ion Beam Analysis of Microcrystalline Quartz Artifacts from the Reed Mound Site, Delaware County, Oklahoma (open access)

Ion Beam Analysis of Microcrystalline Quartz Artifacts from the Reed Mound Site, Delaware County, Oklahoma

This paper from the 23rd Conference on Application of Accelerators in Research and Industry conference proceedings evaluates the potential of particle induced X-ray emission spectrometry as a tool for future Ozarks chert provenance studies based on its ability to facilitate discrimination of Ozarks chert materials from different geological formations and identification of discrete groups of artifacts from the same geological formation.

Long-range current-induced spin accumulation in chiral crystals (open access)

Long-range current-induced spin accumulation in chiral crystals

Article states that chiral materials, similarly to human hands, have distinguishable right-handed and left-handed enantiomers which may behave differently in response to external stimuli, so for the first time the authors use an approach based on the density functional theory (DFT)+PAOFLOW calculations to quantitatively estimate the so-called collinear Rashba–Edelstein effect (REE) that generates spin accumulation parallel to charge current and can manifest as chirality-dependent charge-to-spin conversion in chiral crystals. The authors reveal that the spin accumulation induced in the bulk by an electric current is intrinsically protected by the quasi-persistent spin helix arising from the crystal symmetries present in chiral systems with the Weyl spin–orbit coupling.
