KU ScholarWorks is the digital repository of the University of Kansas. It contains scholarly work created by KU faculty, staff and students, as well as material from the University Archives. KU ScholarWorks makes important research and historical items available to a wider audience and helps assure their long-term preservation.

On February 11, 2010 the KU Faculty Senate passed a revised Open Access policy granting the University permission to deposit a copy of their scholarly work in an open access repository-- KU ScholarWorks. For more about the policy, "how to" documents, Q&A, addenda and more, please visit Open Access @ KU.

For information about submitting to KU ScholarWorks please contact Marianne Reed, mreed@ku.edu. For information about KU ScholarWorks in general, please email kuscholarworks@ku.edu.

  • ‘The Brick’ is not a brick: a comprehensive study of the structure and dynamics of the central molecular zone cloud G0.253+0.016 

    Henshaw, J.D.; Ginsburg, A.; Haworth, T.J.; Longmore, S.N.; Kruijssen, J.M.D.; Mills, Elisabeth; Sokolov, V.; Walker, D.L.; Barnes, A.T.; Contreras, Y.; Bally, J.; Battersby, C.; Beuther, H.; Butterfield, N.; Dale, J.E.; Henning, T.; Jackson, J.M.; Kauffmann, J.; Pillai, T.; Ragan, S.; Riener, M.; Zhang, Q. (Royal Astronomical Society, 2019-02-17)
    In this paper we provide a comprehensive description of the internal dynamics of G0.253+0.016 (a.k.a. ‘the Brick’); one of the most massive and dense molecular clouds in the Galaxy to lack signatures of widespread star ...
  • Trunk Control Response to Unstable Seated Posture During Various Feedback Conditions in People with Chronic Low Back Pain 

    Cyr, Krista M.; Wilson, Sara E.; Mehyar, Fahed; Sharma, Neena K. (Association of Schools of Allied Health Professions, 2019)
    AIMS: People with chronic low back pain (CLBP) tend to have altered postural control. Visual biofeedback may be used to restore postural control. The purpose of this pilot study was to investigate the effect of visual ...
  • Segmented strain accumulation in the High Himalaya expressed in river channel steepness 

    Cannon, J.M.; Murphy, M.A.; Taylor, Michael Halford (Geological Society of America, 2018-03-12)
    We investigate segmentation of High Himalayan strain by cross-orogen structures separating western and eastern obliquely convergent sectors from a central orthogonally convergent sector, and evaluate the relationship between ...
  • Interlayer charge transfer in ReS 2 / WS 2 van der Waals heterostructures 

    Zereshki, Peymon; Yao, Peng; He, Dawei; Wang, Yongsheng; Zhao, Hui (American Physical Society, 2019-05-21)
    We observed ultrafast charge transfer between distorted 1T−ReS2 with anisotropic in-plane electronic and optical properties and 2H−WS2 that is in-plane isotropic. Heterostructures of monolayer ReS2/monolayer WS2 and bilayer ...
  • Young massive star cluster formation in the Galactic Centre is driven by global gravitational collapse of high-mass molecular clouds 

    Barnes, A. T.; Longmore, S. N.; Avison, A.; Contreras, Y.; Ginsburg, A.; Henshaw, J. D.; Rathborne, J. M.; Walker, D. L.; Alves, J.; Bally, J.; Battersby, C.; Beltrán, M. T.; Beuther, H.; Garay, G.; Gomez, L.; Jackson, J.; Kainulainen, J.; Kruijssen, J. M. D.; Lu, X.; Mills, Elisabeth; Ott, J.; Peters, T. (Royal Astronomical Society, 2019-03-19)
    Young massive clusters (YMCs) are the most compact, high-mass stellar systems still forming at the present day. The precursor clouds to such systems are, however, rare due to their large initial gas mass reservoirs and ...
