Abstract z ≲ 2.6 (z _{mean}= 2.30), all chosen independent of emissionline strength. These galaxies have a median stellar mass of and a median star formation rate of $\mathrm{log}{({M}_{*}/{M}_{\odot})}_{\mathrm{med}}={8.29}_{0.43}^{+0.51}$ . We measure the faint electrontemperaturesensitive [O ${\mathrm{S}\mathrm{F}\mathrm{R}}_{\mathrm{H}\alpha}^{\mathrm{m}\mathrm{e}\mathrm{d}}={2.25}_{1.26}^{+2.15}\phantom{\rule{0.25em}{0ex}}{M}_{\odot}\phantom{\rule{0.25em}{0ex}}{\mathrm{y}\mathrm{r}}^{1}$iii ]λ 4363 emission line at 2.5σ (4.1σ ) significance when considering a bootstrapped (statisticalonly) uncertainty spectrum. This yields a directmethod oxygen abundance of ( $12+\mathrm{log}{(\mathrm{O}/\mathrm{H})}_{\mathrm{direct}}={7.88}_{0.22}^{+0.25}$ ). We investigate the applicability at high ${0.15}_{0.06}^{+0.12}\phantom{\rule{0.33em}{0ex}}{Z}_{\odot}$z of locally calibrated oxygenbased strongline metallicity relations, finding that the local reference calibrations of Bian et al. best reproduce (≲0.12 dex) our composite metallicity at fixed strongline ratio. At fixedM _{*}, our composite is well represented by thez ∼ 2.3 directmethod stellar mass—gasphase metallicity relation (MZR) of Sanders et al. When comparing to predicted MZRs from the IllustrisTNG and FIRE simulations, having recalculated our stellar masses with more realistic nonparametric star formation histories , we find excellent agreement with the FIRE MZR. Our composite is consistent with no metallicity evolution, at fixed $(\mathrm{log}{({M}_{*}/{M}_{\odot})}_{\mathrm{med}}={8.92}_{0.22}^{+0.31})$M _{*}and SFR, of the locally defined fundamental metallicity relation. We measure the doublet ratio [Oii ]λ 3729/[Oii ]λ 3726 = 1.56 ± 0.32 (1.51 ± 0.12) and a corresponding electron density of ( ${n}_{e}={1}_{0}^{+215}\phantom{\rule{0.33em}{0ex}}{\mathrm{cm}}^{3}$ ) when considering the bootstrapped (statisticalonly) error spectrum. This result suggests that lowermass galaxies have lower densities than highermass galaxies at ${n}_{e}={1}_{0}^{+74}\phantom{\rule{0.33em}{0ex}}{\mathrm{cm}}^{3}$z ∼ 2. 
Abstract M dwarfs are common host stars to exoplanets but often lack atmospheric abundance measurements. LateM dwarfs are also good analogs to the youngest substellar companions, which share similar
T _{eff}∼ 2300–2800 K. We present atmospheric analyses for the M7.5 companion HIP 55507 B and its K6V primary star with Keck/KPIC highresolution (R ∼ 35,000)K band spectroscopy. First, by including KPIC relative radial velocities between the primary and secondary in the orbit fit, we improve the dynamical mass precision by 60% and find , putting HIP 55507 B above the stellar–substellar boundary. We also find that HIP 55507 B orbits its K6V primary star with ${M}_{B}={88.0}_{3.2}^{+3.4}\phantom{\rule{0.25em}{0ex}}{M}_{\mathrm{Jup}}$ au and $a={38}_{3}^{+4}$e = 0.40 ± 0.04. From atmospheric retrievals of HIP 55507 B, we measure [C/H] = 0.24 ± 0.13, [O/H] = 0.15 ± 0.13, and C/O = 0.67 ± 0.04. Moreover, we strongly detect^{13}CO (7.8σ significance) and tentatively detect (3.7 ${\mathrm{H}}_{2}^{18}\mathrm{O}$σ significance) in the companion’s atmosphere and measure and ${}^{12}\mathrm{CO}{/}^{13}\mathrm{CO}={98}_{22}^{+28}$ after accounting for systematic errors. From a simplified retrieval analysis of HIP 55507 A, we measure ${\mathrm{H}}_{2}^{16}\mathrm{O}/{\mathrm{H}}_{2}^{18}\mathrm{O}={240}_{80}^{+145}$ and ${}^{12}\mathrm{CO}{/}^{13}\mathrm{CO}={79}_{16}^{+21}$ for the primary star. These results demonstrate that HIP 55507 A and B have consistent^{12}C/^{13}C and^{16}O/^{18}O to the <1 ${\mathrm{C}}^{16}\mathrm{O}/{\mathrm{C}}^{18}\mathrm{O}={288}_{70}^{+125}$σ level, as expected for a chemically homogeneous binary system. Given the similar flux ratios and separations between HIP 55507 AB and systems with young substellar companions, our results open the door to systematically measuring^{13}CO and abundances in the atmospheres of substellar or even planetarymass companions with similar spectral types. ${\mathrm{H}}_{2}^{18}\mathrm{O}$ 
Abstract Polyatomic molecules have been identified as sensitive probes of chargeparity violating and parity violating physics beyond the Standard Model (BSM). For example, many linear triatomic molecules are both lasercoolable and have parity doublets in the ground electronic
state arising from the bending vibration, both features that can greatly aid BSM searches. Understanding the $\tilde{X}{}^{2}{\mathrm{\Sigma}}^{+}(010)$ state is a crucial prerequisite to precision measurements with linear polyatomic molecules. Here, we characterize the fundamental bending vibration of $\tilde{X}{}^{2}{\mathrm{\Sigma}}^{+}(010)$ YbOH using highresolution optical spectroscopy on the nominally forbidden ${}^{174}$ $\tilde{X}{}^{2}{\mathrm{\Sigma}}^{+}(010)$ transition at 588 nm. We assign 39 transitions originating from the lowest rotational levels of the $\to \tilde{A}{}^{2}{\mathrm{\Pi}}_{1/2}(000)$ state, and accurately model the state’s structure with an effective Hamiltonian using bestfit parameters. Additionally, we perform Stark and Zeeman spectroscopy on the $\tilde{X}{}^{2}{\mathrm{\Sigma}}^{+}(010)$ state and fit the moleculeframe dipole moment to $\tilde{X}{}^{2}{\mathrm{\Sigma}}^{+}(010)$ ${D}_{\mathrm{m}\mathrm{o}\mathrm{l}}=2.16(1)$D and the effective electrong factor to . Further, we use an empirical model to explain observed anomalous line intensities in terms of interference from spin–orbit and vibronic perturbations in the excited ${g}_{S}=2.07(2)$ state. Our work is an essential step toward searches for BSM physics in YbOH and other linear polyatomic molecules. $\tilde{A}{}^{2}{\mathrm{\Pi}}_{1/2}(000)$ 
Abstract We perform particleincell simulations to elucidate the microphysics of relativistic weakly magnetized shocks loaded with electronpositron pairs. Various external magnetizations
σ ≲ 10^{−4}and pairloading factorsZ _{±}≲ 10 are studied, whereZ _{±}is the number of loaded electrons and positrons per ion. We find the following: (1) The shock becomes mediated by the ion Larmor gyration in the mean field whenσ exceeds a critical valueσ _{L}that decreases withZ _{±}. Atσ ≲σ _{L}the shock is mediated by particle scattering in the selfgenerated microturbulent fields, the strength and scale of which decrease withZ _{±}, leading to lowerσ _{L}. (2) The energy fraction carried by the postshock pairs is robustly in the range between 20% and 50% of the upstream ion energy. The mean energy per postshock electron scales as . (3) Pair loading suppresses nonthermal ion acceleration at magnetizations as low as ${\overline{E}}_{\mathrm{e}}\propto {\left({Z}_{\pm}+1\right)}^{1}$σ ≈ 5 × 10^{−6}. The ions then become essentially thermal with mean energy , while electrons form a nonthermal tail, extending from ${\overline{E}}_{\mathrm{i}}$ to $E\sim {\left({Z}_{\pm}+1\right)}^{1}{\overline{E}}_{\mathrm{i}}$ . When ${\overline{E}}_{\mathrm{i}}$σ = 0, particle acceleration is enhanced by the formation of intense magnetic cavities that populate the precursor during the late stages of shock evolution. Here, the maximum energy of the nonthermal ions and electrons keeps growing over the duration of the simulation. Alongside the simulations, we develop theoretical estimates consistent with the numerical results. Our findings have important implications for models of early gammaray burst afterglows. 
Abstract The repeating fast radio burst FRB 20190520B is an anomaly of the FRB population thanks to its high dispersion measure (DM = 1205 pc cm^{−3}) despite its low redshift of
z _{frb}= 0.241. This excess has been attributed to a large host contribution of DM_{host}≈ 900 pc cm^{−3}, far larger than any other known FRB. In this paper, we describe spectroscopic observations of the FRB 20190520B field obtained as part of the FLIMFLAM survey, which yielded 701 galaxy redshifts in the field. We find multiple foreground galaxy groups and clusters, for which we then estimated halo masses by comparing their richness with numerical simulations. We discover two separateM _{halo}> 10^{14}M _{⊙}galaxy clusters atz = 0.1867 and 0.2170 that are directly intersected by the FRB sight line within their characteristic halo radiusr _{200}. Subtracting off their estimated DM contributions, as well that of the diffuse intergalactic medium, we estimate a host contribution of or ${\mathrm{D}\mathrm{M}}_{\mathrm{h}\mathrm{o}\mathrm{s}\mathrm{t}}={430}_{220}^{+140}$ (observed frame), depending on whether we assume that the halo gas extends to ${280}_{170}^{+140}\phantom{\rule{0.25em}{0ex}}\mathrm{p}\mathrm{c}\phantom{\rule{0.25em}{0ex}}{\mathrm{c}\mathrm{m}}^{3}$r _{200}or 2 ×r _{200}. This significantly smaller DM_{host}—no longer the largest known value—is now consistent with Hα emission measures of the host galaxy without invoking unusually high gas temperatures. Combined with the observed FRB scattering timescale, we estimate the turbulent fluctuation and geometric amplification factor of the scattering layer to be , suggesting that most of the gas is close to the FRB host. This result illustrates the importance of incorporating foreground data for FRB analyses both for understanding the nature of FRBs and to realize their potential as a cosmological probe. $\tilde{F}G\approx 4.5\u201311{({\mathrm{pc}}^{2}\phantom{\rule{0.25em}{0ex}}\mathrm{km})}^{1/3}$
