Abstract β , for a sample of 36 faint starforming galaxies atz ∼ 9–16 discovered in one of the deepest JWST NIRCam surveys to date, the Next Generation Deep Extragalactic Exploratory Public Survey. We use robust photometric measurements for UVfaint galaxies (down toM _{UV}∼ −16), originally published in Leung et al., and measure values of the UV spectral slope via photometric powerlaw fitting to both the observed photometry and stellar population models obtained through spectral energy distribution (SED) fitting withBagpipes . We obtain a median and 68% confidence interval forβ from photometric powerlaw fitting of and from SED fitting, ${\beta}_{\mathrm{PL}}={2.7}_{0.5}^{+0.5}$ for the full sample. We show that when only two to three photometric detections are available, SED fitting has a lower scatter and reduced biases than photometric powerlaw fitting. We quantify this bias and find that after correction the median ${\beta}_{\mathrm{SED}}={2.3}_{0.1}^{+0.2}$ . We measure physical properties for our galaxies with ${\beta}_{\mathrm{SED},\mathrm{corr}}={2.5}_{0.2}^{+0.2}$Bagpipes and find that our faint ( ) sample is low in mass ( ${M}_{\mathrm{UV}}={18.1}_{0.9}^{+0.7}$ ), fairly dustpoor ( $\mathrm{log}[{M}_{*}/{M}_{\odot}]={7.7}_{0.5}^{+0.5}$ mag), and modestly young ( ${A}_{\mathrm{v}}={0.1}_{0.1}^{+0.2}$ yr) with a median star formation rate of $\mathrm{log}[\mathrm{age}]={7.8}_{0.8}^{+0.2}$ . We find no strong evidence for ultrablue UV spectral slopes ( $\mathrm{log}(\mathrm{SFR})={0.3}_{0.4}^{+0.4}{M}_{\odot}\phantom{\rule{0.25em}{0ex}}{\mathrm{yr}}^{1}$β ∼ −3) within our sample, as would be expected for exotically metalpoor (Z /Z _{⊙}< 10^{−3}) stellar populations with very high Lyman continuum escape fractions. Our observations are consistent with model predictions that galaxies of these stellar masses atz ∼ 9–16 should have only modestly low metallicities (Z /Z _{⊙}∼ 0.1–0.2). 
Abstract A steadystate, semianalytical model of energetic particle acceleration in radiojet shear flows due to cosmicray viscosity obtained by Webb et al. is generalized to take into account more general cosmicray boundary spectra. This involves solving a mixed Dirichlet–Von Neumann boundary value problem at the edge of the jet. The energetic particle distribution function
f _{0}(r ,p ) at cylindrical radiusr from the jet axis (assumed to lie along thez axis) is given by convolving the particle momentum spectrum with the Green’s function ${f}_{0}(\infty ,p\prime )$ , which describes the monoenergetic spectrum solution in which $G(r,p;p\prime )$ as ${f}_{0}\to \delta (pp\prime )$r → ∞ . Previous work by Webb et al. studied only the Green’s function solution for . In this paper, we explore for the first time, solutions for more general and realistic forms for $G(r,p;p\prime )$ . The flow velocity ${f}_{0}(\infty ,p\prime )$ =u u (r ) _{z}is along the axis of the jet (thee z axis). is independent ofu z , andu (r ) is a monotonic decreasing function ofr . The scattering time in the shear flow region 0 < $\tau {(r,p)={\tau}_{0}(p/{p}_{0})}^{\alpha}$r <r _{2}, and , where $\tau {(r,p)={\tau}_{0}(p/{p}_{0})}^{\alpha}{(r/{r}_{2})}^{s}$s > 0 in the regionr >r _{2}is outside the jet. Other original aspects of the analysis are (i) the use of cosmic ray flow lines in (r ,p ) space to clarify the particle spatial transport and momentum changes and (ii) the determination of the probability distribution that particles observed at ( ${\psi}_{p}(r,p;p\prime )$r ,p ) originated fromr → ∞ with momentum . The acceleration of ultrahighenergy cosmic rays in active galactic nuclei jet sources is discussed. Leaky box models for electron acceleration are described. $p\prime $ 
Abstract We present a Keck/MOSFIRE restoptical composite spectrum of 16 typical gravitationally lensed starforming dwarf galaxies at 1.7 ≲
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. 
A theoretical analysis on crack formation and propagation was performed based on the coupling between the electrochemical process, classical elasticity, and fracture mechanics. The chemical potential of oxygen, thus oxygen partial pressure, at the oxygen electrodeelectrolyte interface (
) was investigated as a function of transport properties, electrolyte thickness and operating conditions (e.g., steam concentration, constant current, and constant voltage). Our analysis shows that: a lower ionic area specific resistance (ASR), ${\mu}_{{O}_{2}}^{\mathit{OE\mid El}}$ and a higher electronic ASR ( ${r}_{i}^{OE},$ ) of the oxygen electrode/electrolyte interface are in favor of suppressing crack formation. The ${r}_{e}^{OE}$ thus local pO_{2}, are sensitive towards the operating parameters under galvanostatic or potentiostatic electrolysis. Constant current density electrolysis provides better robustness, especially at a high current density with a high steam content. While constant voltage electrolysis leads to greater variations of ${\mu}_{{O}_{2}}^{OE\mid El},$ Constant current electrolysis, however, is not suitable for an unstable oxygen electrode because ${\mu}_{{O}_{2}}^{OE\mid El}.$ can reach a very high value with a gradually increased ${\mu}_{{O}_{2}}^{OE\mid El}$ A crack may only occur under certain conditions when ${r}_{i}^{OE}.$ ${p}_{{O}_{2}}^{TPB}>{p}_{cr}.$ 
Abstract We measure the metallicities of 374 red giant branch (RGB) stars in the isolated, quenched dwarf galaxy Tucana using Hubble Space Telescope narrowband (F395N) calcium H and K imaging. Our sample is a factor of ∼7 larger than what is available from previous studies. Our main findings are as follows. (i) A global metallicity distribution function (MDF) with
and $\u3008\mathrm{[Fe/H]}\u3009={1.55}_{0.04}^{+0.04}$ . (ii) A metallicity gradient of −0.54 ± 0.07 dex ${\sigma}_{\mathrm{[Fe/H]}}={0.54}_{0.03}^{+0.03}$ (−2.1 ± 0.3 dex kpc^{−1}) over the extent of our imaging (∼2.5 ${R}_{e}^{1}$R _{e}), which is steeper than literature measurements. Our finding is consistent with predicted gradients from the publicly available FIRE2 simulations, in which bursty star formation creates stellar population gradients and dark matter cores. (iii) Tucana’s bifurcated RGB has distinct metallicities: a blue RGB with and $\u3008\mathrm{[Fe/H]}\u3009={1.78}_{0.06}^{+0.06}$ and a red RGB with ${\sigma}_{\mathrm{[Fe/H]}}={0.44}_{0.06}^{+0.07}$ and $\u3008\mathrm{[Fe/H]}\u3009={1.08}_{0.07}^{+0.07}$ . (iv) At fixed stellar mass, Tucana is more metalrich than Milky Way satellites by ∼0.4 dex, but its blue RGB is chemically comparable to the satellites. Tucana’s MDF appears consistent with starforming isolated dwarfs, though MDFs of the latter are not as well populated. (v) About 2% of Tucana’s stars have [Fe/H] < −3% and 20% have [Fe/H] > −1. We provide a catalog for community spectroscopic followup. ${\sigma}_{\mathrm{[Fe/H]}}={0.42}_{0.06}^{+0.06}$
