Kondo insulators are expected to transform into metals under a sufficiently strong magnetic field. The closure of the insulating gap stems from the coupling of a magnetic field to the electron spin, yet the required strength of the magnetic field–typically of order 100 T–means that very little is known about this insulatormetal transition. Here we show that Ce
The proximity of many strongly correlated superconductors to densitywave or nematic order has led to an extensive search for fingerprints of pairing mediated by dynamical quantumcritical (QC) fluctuations of the corresponding order parameter. Here we study anisotropic

Abstract We study the singular set in the thin obstacle problem for degenerate parabolic equations with weight
for$$y^a$$ ${\lefty\right}^{a}$ . Such problem arises as the local extension of the obstacle problem for the fractional heat operator$$a \in (1,1)$$ $a\in (1,1)$ for$$(\partial _t  \Delta _x)^s$$ ${({\partial}_{t}{\Delta}_{x})}^{s}$ . Our main result establishes the complete structure and regularity of the singular set of the free boundary. To achieve it, we prove AlmgrenPoon, Weiss, and Monneau type monotonicity formulas which generalize those for the case of the heat equation ($$s \in (0,1)$$ $s\in (0,1)$ ).$$a=0$$ $a=0$ 
Abstract We present a proof of concept for a spectrally selective thermal midIR source based on nanopatterned graphene (NPG) with a typical mobility of CVDgrown graphene (up to 3000
), ensuring scalability to large areas. For that, we solve the electrostatic problem of a conducting hyperboloid with an elliptical wormhole in the presence of an$$\hbox {cm}^2\,\hbox {V}^{1}\,\hbox {s}^{1}$$ ${\text{cm}}^{2}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}{\text{V}}^{1}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}{\text{s}}^{1}$inplane electric field. The localized surface plasmons (LSPs) on the NPG sheet, partially hybridized with graphene phonons and surface phonons of the neighboring materials, allow for the control and tuning of the thermal emission spectrum in the wavelength regime from to 12$$\lambda =3$$ $\lambda =3$ m by adjusting themore »$$\upmu$$ $\mu $ 
Abstract Efficient conversion of methane to valueadded products such as olefins and aromatics has been in pursuit for the past few decades. The demand has increased further due to the recent discoveries of shale gas reserves. Oxidative and nonoxidative coupling of methane (OCM and NOCM) have been actively researched, although catalysts with commercially viable conversion rates are not yet available. Recently,
(SFMO075Fe) has been reported to activate methane in an electrochemical OCM (ECOCM) set up with a C2 selectivity of 82.2%^{1}. However, alkaline earth metalbased materials are known to suffer chemical instability in carbonrich environments.

Abstract Hemiwicking is the phenomena where a liquid wets a textured surface beyond its intrinsic wetting length due to capillary action and imbibition. In this work, we derive a simple analytical model for hemiwicking in micropillar arrays. The model is based on the combined effects of capillary action dictated by interfacial and intermolecular pressures gradients within the curved liquid meniscus and fluid drag from the pillars at ultralow Reynolds numbers
. Fluid drag is conceptualized via a critical Reynolds number:$${\boldsymbol{(}}{{\bf{10}}}^{{\boldsymbol{}}{\bf{7}}}{\boldsymbol{\lesssim }}{\bf{Re}}{\boldsymbol{\lesssim }}{{\bf{10}}}^{{\boldsymbol{}}{\bf{3}}}{\boldsymbol{)}}$$ $\left({10}^{7}\lesssim \mathrm{Re}\lesssim {10}^{3}\right)$ , where$${\bf{Re}}{\boldsymbol{=}}\frac{{{\bf{v}}}_{{\bf{0}}}{{\bf{x}}}_{{\bf{0}}}}{{\boldsymbol{\nu }}}$$ $\mathrm{Re}=\frac{{v}_{0}{x}_{0}}{\nu}$v _{0}corresponds to the maximum wetting speed on a flat, dry surface andx _{0}is the extension length of the liquidmore »
