• #### NLO corrections to double Higgs boson production in the Higgs singlet model ﻿

(American Physical Society, 2015-11-20)
Higgs pair production at the LHC from gluon fusion is small in the Standard Model but can be enhanced in models where a resonant enhancement is allowed. We examine the effect of a resonant contribution from a second scalar ...

(American Physical Society, 2015-02-13)
We study the enhancement of the di-Higgs production cross section resulting from the resonant decay of a heavy Higgs boson at hadron colliders in a model with a Higgs singlet. This enhancement of the double Higgs production ...

• #### Quantum Delayed-Choice Experiment with a Beam Splitter in a Quantum Superposition ﻿

(American Physical Society, 2015-12-28)
A quantum system can behave as a wave or as a particle, depending on the experimental arrangement. When, for example, measuring a photon using a Mach-Zehnder interferometer, the photon acts as a wave if the second beam ...

• #### Model insights into energetic photoelectrons measured at Mars by MAVEN ﻿

(American Geophysical Union, 2016-02-03)
Photoelectrons are important for heating, ionization, and airglow production in planetary atmospheres. Measured electron fluxes provide insight into the sources and sinks of energy in the Martian upper atmosphere. The Solar ...

(American Geophysical Union, 2015-05-05)
The Rosetta Ion and Electron Sensor (IES) has been measuring solar wind ions intermittently since exiting from hibernation in May 2014. On 19 August, when Rosetta was ~80 km from the comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko, which ...
• #### An empirical approach to modeling ion production rates in Titan's ionosphere II: Ion production rates on the nightside ﻿

(American Geophysical Union, 2015-02-03)
Ionization of neutrals by precipitating electrons and ions is the main source of Titan's nightside ionosphere. This paper has two goals: (1) characterization of the role of electron impact ionization on the nightside ...
• #### An empirical approach to modeling ion production rates in Titan’s ionosphere I: Ion production rates on the dayside and globally ﻿

(American Geophysical Union, 2015-02-03)
Titan's ionosphere is created when solar photons, energetic magnetospheric electrons or ions, and cosmic rays ionize the neutral atmosphere. Electron densities generated by current theoretical models are much larger than ...
