Abstract ), 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 the size of and distance between the circular holes in a hexagonal or square lattice structure. Most importantly, the LSPs along with an optical cavity increase the emittance of graphene from about 2.3% for pristine graphene to 80% for NPG, thereby outperforming stateoftheart pristine graphene light sources operating in the nearinfrared by at least a factor of 100. According to our COMSOL calculations, a maximum emission power per area of$$\upmu$$ $\mu $ W/$$11\times 10^3$$ $11\times {10}^{3}$ at$$\hbox {m}^2$$ ${\text{m}}^{2}$ K for a bias voltage of$$T=2000$$ $T=2000$ V is achieved by controlling the temperature of the hot electrons through the Joule heating.

Abstract Massive gully land consolidation projects, launched in China’s Loess Plateau, aim to restore 2667
agricultural lands in total by consolidating 2026 highly eroded gullies. This effort represents a social engineering project where the economic development and livelihood of the farming families are closely tied to the ability of these emergent landscapes to provide agricultural services. Whether these ‘time zero’ landscapes have the resilience to provide a sustainable soil condition such as soil organic carbon (SOC) content remains unknown. By studying two watersheds, one of which is a control site, we show that the consolidated gully serves as an enhanced carbon sink, where the magnitude of SOC increase rate (1.0$$\mathrm{km}^2$$ ${\mathrm{km}}^{2}$ ) is about twice that of the SOC decrease rate (− 0.5$$\mathrm{g\,C}/\mathrm{m}^2/\mathrm{year}$$ $g\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}C/{m}^{2}/\mathrm{year}$ ) in the surrounding natural watershed. Over a 50year coevolution of landscape and SOC turnover, we find that the dominant mechanisms that determine the carbon cycling are different between the consolidated gully and natural watersheds. In natural watersheds, the flux of SOC transformation is mainly driven by the flux of SOC transport; but in the consolidated gully, the transport has little impact on the transformation. Furthermore, we find that extending the surface carbon residence time has the potential to efficiently enhance carbon sequestrationmore »$$\mathrm{g\,C}/\mathrm{m}^2/\mathrm{year}$$ $g\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}C/{m}^{2}/\mathrm{year}$ 
Abstract We study the structure of the Liouville quantum gravity (LQG) surfaces that are cut out as one explores a conformal loopensemble
for$$\hbox {CLE}_{\kappa '}$$ ${\text{CLE}}_{{\kappa}^{\prime}}$ in (4, 8) that is drawn on an independent$$\kappa '$$ ${\kappa}^{\prime}$ LQG surface for$$\gamma $$ $\gamma $ . The results are similar in flavor to the ones from our companion paper dealing with$$\gamma ^2=16/\kappa '$$ ${\gamma}^{2}=16/{\kappa}^{\prime}$ for$$\hbox {CLE}_{\kappa }$$ ${\text{CLE}}_{\kappa}$ in (8/3, 4), where the loops of the CLE are disjoint and simple. In particular, we encode the combined structure of the LQG surface and the$$\kappa $$ $\kappa $ in terms of stable growthfragmentation trees or their variants, which also appear in the asymptotic study of peeling processes on decorated planar maps. This has consequences for questions that do a priori not involve LQG surfaces: In our paper entitled “$$\hbox {CLE}_{\kappa '}$$ ${\text{CLE}}_{{\kappa}^{\prime}}$CLE Percolations ” described the law of interfaces obtained when coloring the loops of a independently into two colors with respective probabilities$$\hbox {CLE}_{\kappa '}$$ ${\text{CLE}}_{{\kappa}^{\prime}}$p and . This description was complete up to one missing parameter$$1p$$ $1p$ . The results of the present paper about CLE on LQG allow us to determine its value in terms of$$\rho $$ $\rho $p and . It shows in particular that$$\kappa '$$ ${\kappa}^{\prime}$ and$$\hbox {CLE}_{\kappa '}$$ ${\text{CLE}}_{{\kappa}^{\prime}}$ are related via a continuum analog of the EdwardsSokal coupling between$$\hbox {CLE}_{16/\kappa '}$$ ${\text{CLE}}_{16/{\kappa}^{\prime}}$ percolation and the$$\hbox {FK}_q$$ ${\text{FK}}_{q}$q state Potts model (which makes sense evenmore » 
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 liquid meniscus that drives the bulk fluid toward the adsorbed thinfilm region. The model is validated with wicking experiments on different hemiwicking surfaces in conjunction withv _{0}andx _{0}measurements using Water , viscous FC70$${\boldsymbol{(}}{{\bf{v}}}_{{\bf{0}}}{\boldsymbol{\approx }}{\bf{2}}\,{\bf{m}}{\boldsymbol{/}}{\bf{s}}{\boldsymbol{,}}\,{\bf{25}}\,{\boldsymbol{\mu }}{\bf{m}}{\boldsymbol{\lesssim }}{{\bf{x}}}_{{\bf{0}}}{\boldsymbol{\lesssim }}{\bf{28}}\,{\boldsymbol{\mu }}{\bf{m}}{\boldsymbol{)}}$$ $\left({v}_{0}\approx 2\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}m/s,\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}25\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\mu m\lesssim {x}_{0}\lesssim 28\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\mu m\right)$ and lower viscosity Ethanol$${\boldsymbol{(}}{{\boldsymbol{v}}}_{{\bf{0}}}{\boldsymbol{\approx }}{\bf{0.3}}\,{\bf{m}}{\boldsymbol{/}}{\bf{s}}{\boldsymbol{,}}\,{\bf{18.6}}\,{\boldsymbol{\mu }}{\bf{m}}{\boldsymbol{\lesssim }}{{\boldsymbol{x}}}_{{\bf{0}}}{\boldsymbol{\lesssim }}{\bf{38.6}}\,{\boldsymbol{\mu }}{\bf{m}}{\boldsymbol{)}}$$ $\left({v}_{0}\approx 0.3\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}m/s,\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}18.6\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\mu m\lesssim {x}_{0}\lesssim 38.6\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\mu m\right)$ .$${\boldsymbol{(}}{{\boldsymbol{v}}}_{{\bf{0}}}{\boldsymbol{\approx }}{\bf{1.2}}\,{\bf{m}}{\boldsymbol{/}}{\bf{s}}{\boldsymbol{,}}\,{\bf{11.8}}\,{\boldsymbol{\mu }}{\bf{m}}{\boldsymbol{\lesssim }}{{\bf{x}}}_{{\bf{0}}}{\boldsymbol{\lesssim }}{\bf{33.3}}\,{\boldsymbol{\mu }}{\bf{m}}{\boldsymbol{)}}$$ $\left({v}_{0}\approx 1.2\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}m/s,\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}11.8\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\mu m\lesssim {x}_{0}\lesssim 33.3\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\mu m\right)$ 
Abstract It has been recently established in David and Mayboroda (Approximation of green functions and domains with uniformly rectifiable boundaries of all dimensions.
arXiv:2010.09793 ) that on uniformly rectifiable sets the Green function is almost affine in the weak sense, and moreover, in some scenarios such Green function estimates are equivalent to the uniform rectifiability of a set. The present paper tackles a strong analogue of these results, starting with the “flagship degenerate operators on sets with lower dimensional boundaries. We consider the elliptic operators associated to a domain$$L_{\beta ,\gamma } = {\text {div}}D^{d+1+\gamma n} \nabla $$ ${L}_{\beta ,\gamma}=\text{div}{D}^{d+1+\gamma n}\nabla $ with a uniformly rectifiable boundary$$\Omega \subset {\mathbb {R}}^n$$ $\Omega \subset {R}^{n}$ of dimension$$\Gamma $$ $\Gamma $ , the now usual distance to the boundary$$d < n1$$ $d<n1$ given by$$D = D_\beta $$ $D={D}_{\beta}$ for$$D_\beta (X)^{\beta } = \int _{\Gamma } Xy^{d\beta } d\sigma (y)$$ ${D}_{\beta}{\left(X\right)}^{\beta}={\int}_{\Gamma}{Xy}^{d\beta}d\sigma \left(y\right)$ , where$$X \in \Omega $$ $X\in \Omega $ and$$\beta >0$$ $\beta >0$ . In this paper we show that the Green function$$\gamma \in (1,1)$$ $\gamma \in (1,1)$G for , with pole at infinity, is well approximated by multiples of$$L_{\beta ,\gamma }$$ ${L}_{\beta ,\gamma}$ , in the sense that the function$$D^{1\gamma }$$ ${D}^{1\gamma}$ satisfies a Carleson measure estimate on$$\big  D\nabla \big (\ln \big ( \frac{G}{D^{1\gamma }} \big )\big )\big ^2$$ $D\nabla (ln(\frac{G}{{D}^{1\gamma}})){}^{2}$ . We underline that the strong and the weak results are different in nature and, of course, at the levelmore »$$\Omega $$ $\Omega $
