© Astronomical Society of Australia 2019. We have observed the G23 field of the Galaxy AndMass Assembly (GAMA) survey using the Australian Square Kilometre Array Pathfinder (ASKAP) in its commissioning phase to validate the performance of the telesco... Read More

Galactic chemical evolution of radioactive isotopes (2019)
Journal Article

The presence of short-lived (∼ Myr) radioactive isotopes in meteoritic inclusions at the time of their formation represents a unique opportunity to study the circumstances that led to the formation of the Solar System. To interpret these observations... Read More

The effect of minor and major mergers on the evolution of low excitation radio galaxies (2019)
Journal Article

We use deep, μ r lesssim 28 mag arcsec−2, r-band imaging from the Dark Energy Camera Legacy Survey to search for past, or ongoing, merger activity in a sample of 282 low-excitation radio galaxies (LERGs) at z < 0.07. Our principal aim is to assess t... Read More

Percolation threshold enables optical resistive‐memory switching and light‐tuneable synaptic learning in segregated nanocomposites (2019)
Journal Article
Jaafar, A. H., O'Neill, M., Kelly, S. M., Verrelli, E., & Kemp, N. T. (2019). Percolation threshold enables optical resistive‐memory switching and light‐tuneable synaptic learning in segregated nanocomposites. Advanced Electronic Materials, 5(7), https://doi.org/10.1002/aelm.201900197

An optical memristor where the electrical resistance memory depends on the history of both the current flowing through the device and the irradiance of incident light onto it is demonstrated. It is based on a nanocomposite consisting of functionalize... Read More

Using failed supernovae to constrain the Galactic r-process element production (2019)
Journal Article
Thielemann, F. K., Pignatari, M., Côté, B., Fröhlich, C., & Wehmeyer, B. (2019). Using failed supernovae to constrain the Galactic r-process element production. Monthly notices of the Royal Astronomical Society, 487(2), 1745-1753. https://doi.org/10.1093/mnras/stz1310

Rapid neutron capture process (r-process) elements have been detected in a large fraction of metal-poor halo stars, with abundances relative to iron (Fe) that vary by over two orders of magnitude. This scatter is reduced to less than a factor of 3 in... Read More

Probing the molecular orientation of a single conjugated polymer via nano-gap SERS (2019)
Journal Article
Marshall, A. R. L., Roberts, M., Gierschner, J., Bouillard, J. G., & Adawi, A. M. (2019). Probing the molecular orientation of a single conjugated polymer via nano-gap SERS. ACS applied polymer materials, 1(5), 1175-1180. https://doi.org/10.1021/acsapm.9b00180

Determining the molecular orientation at the single molecule level is of key importance for a wide range of applica-tions ranging from molecular electronic devices to biomedical applications. In this work Surface-Enhanced Raman Scattering (SERS) was... Read More

Remnants and ejecta of thermonuclear electron-capture supernovae: Constraining oxygen-neon deflagrations in high-density white dwarfs (2018)
Journal Article
Jones, S., Röpke, F. K., Fryer, C., Ruiter, A. J., Seitenzahl, I. R., Nittler, L. R., …Belczynski, K. (2019). Remnants and ejecta of thermonuclear electron-capture supernovae: Constraining oxygen-neon deflagrations in high-density white dwarfs. Astronomy and Astrophysics, 622, https://doi.org/10.1051/0004-6361/201834381

The explosion mechanism of electron-capture supernovae (ECSNe) remains equivocal: it is not completely clear whether these events are implosions in which neutron stars are formed, or incomplete thermonuclear explosions that leave behind bound ONeFe w... Read More

The clustering and halo masses of star-forming galaxies at z<1 (2014)
Journal Article
Dolley, T., Brown, M. J. I., Weiner, B. J., Brodwin, M., Kochanek, C. S., Pimbblet, K. A., …Beare, R. (2014). The clustering and halo masses of star-forming galaxies at z<1. The Astrophysical journal, 797(2), https://doi.org/10.1088/0004-637X/797/2/125

We present clustering measurements and halo masses of star-forming galaxies at 0.2 < z < 1.0. After excluding active galactic nuclei (AGNs), we construct a sample of 22,553 24 μm sources selected from 8.42 deg2 of the Spitzer MIPS AGN and Galax... Read More
