We present 3-79 keV NuSTAR observations of the neutron star low-mass X-ray binary 4U 1636-53 in the soft, transitional and hard state. The spectra display a broad emission line at 5-10 keV. We applied several models to fit this line: A GAUSSIAN line, a relativistically broadened emission line model, KYRLINE, and two models including relativistically smeared and ionized reflection off the accretion disc with different coronal heights, RELXILL and RELXILLLP.

Recent XMM-Newton observations of the black-hole candidate 4U 1630-47 during the 2012 outburst revealed three relativistically Doppler-shifted emission lines that were interpreted as arising from baryonic matter in the jet of this source. Here we reanalyse those data and find an alternative model that, with less free parameters than the model with Doppler-shifted emission lines, fits the data well. In our model we allow the abundance of S and Fe in the interstellar material along the line of sight to the source to be non solar. Read More

The monolithic integration of electronics and photonics has attracted enormous attention due to its potential applications. However, the realization of such hybrid circuits has remained a challenge because it requires optical communication at nanometer scales. A major challenge to this integration is the identification of a suitable material. Read More

We report the observation of anomalously strong 2D band in twisted bilayer graphene (tBLG) with large rotation angles under 638-nm and 532-nm visible laser excitation. The 2D band of tBLG can reach four times as opposed to two times as strong as that of single layer graphene. The same tBLG samples also exhibit rotation dependent G-line resonances and folded phonons under 364-nm UV laser excitation. Read More

Two new Raman modes below 100 cm^-1 are observed in twisted bilayer graphene grown by chemical vapor deposition. The two modes are observed in a small range of twisting angle at which the intensity of the G Raman peak is strongly enhanced, indicating that these low energy modes and the G Raman mode share the same resonance enhancement mechanism, as a function of twisting angle. The 94 cm^-1 mode (measured with a 532 nm laser excitation) is assigned to the fundamental layer breathing vibration (ZO (prime) mode) mediated by the twisted bilayer graphene lattice, which lacks long-range translational symmetry.

Using RXTE observations, we investigate the evolution of inner disk radius R_in of Cir X-1 during two cycles and find obvious orbital modulation. We argue that the modulation is attributed to its high orbital eccentricity. The disk luminosity is inversely with the inner disk temperature kT_in, which is ascribed to the slow increase of kT_in and, however, the rapid decrease of R_in during the passage for the neutron star to depart from the companion star.

We report field-effect transistors (FETs) with single-crystal molybdenum disulfide (MoS2) channels synthesized by chemical vapor deposition (CVD). For a bilayer MoS2 FET, the mobility is ~17 cm2V-1s-1 and the on/off current ratio is ~108, which are much higher than those of FETs based on CVD polycrystalline MoS2 films. By avoiding the detrimental effects of the grain boundaries and the contamination introduced by the transfer process, the quality of the CVD MoS2 atomic layers deposited directly on SiO2 is comparable to the best exfoliated MoS2 flakes.

From the extreme position of disk motion, we infer the neutron star (NS) surface magnetic field strength B_0 of Z-source GX 17+2 and Cyg X-2. The inferred B_0 of GX 17+2 and Cyg X-2 are ~(1-5)X10^8 G and ~(1--3)X10^8 G}, respectively, which are not inferior to that of millisecond X-ray pulsars or atoll sources. It is likely that the NS magnetic axis of Z sources is parallel to the axis of rotation, which could result in the lack of pulsations in these sources. Read More

Twisted bilayer graphene (tBLG) provides us with a large rotational freedom to explore new physics and novel device applications, but many of its basic properties remain unresolved. Here we report the synthesis and systematic Raman study of tBLG. Chemical vapor deposition was used to synthesize hexagon- shaped tBLG with a rotation angle that can be conveniently determined by relative edge misalignment. Read More

Memory system is often the main bottleneck in chipmultiprocessor (CMP) systems in terms of latency, bandwidth and efficiency, and recently additionally facing capacity and power problems in an era of big data. A lot of research works have been done to address part of these problems, such as photonics technology for bandwidth, 3D stacking for capacity, and NVM for power as well as many micro-architecture level innovations. Many of them need a modification of current memory architecture, since the decades-old synchronous memory architecture (SDRAM) has become an obstacle to adopt those advances. Read More
