Team discovers Neptune-like planet forming in giant dust disk

Using an array of radio telescopes in Chile, scientists have observed a planet being born from a giant dust disk 176 light years away, according to a new study published in Astrophysical Journal Letters. The developing planet is believed to be a large ice planet, comparable to Uranus or Neptune in our Solar System. In […]

Intuitive representation of photopolarimetric data using the polarization ellipse [METHODS [amp ] TECHNIQUES]

Yakir Luc Gagnon and Nicholas Justin MarshallPhotopolarimetry is the spatial characterization of light polarization. Unlike intensity or wavelength, we are largely insensitive to polarization and therefore find it hard to explore the multidimensional d…
