The interplay between charge transfer and electronic disorder in transitionmetal dichalcogenide multilayers gives rise to superconductive coupling driven by proximity enhancement, tunneling and superconducting fluctuations, of a yet unwieldy variety. Artificial spacer layers introduced with atomic precision change the density of states by charge transfer. Here, we tune the superconductive coupling between

Abstract monolayers from proximityenhanced to tunnelingdominated. We correlate normal and superconducting properties in $\text{NbS}{\text{e}}_{\text{2}}$ tailored multilayers with varying SnSe layer thickness ( ${\left[{\left(\text{SnSe}\right)}_{1+\delta}\right]}_{m}{\left[\text{NbS}{\text{e}}_{\text{2}}\right]}_{1}$ ). From highfield magnetotransport the critical fields yield Ginzburg–Landau coherence lengths with an increase of $m=115$ crossplane ( $140\mathrm{\%}$ ), trending towards twodimensional superconductivity for $m=19$ . We show crossovers between three regimes: metallic with proximityenhanced coupling ( $m>9$ ), disorderedmetallic with intermediate coupling ( $m=14$ ) and insulating with Josephson tunneling ( $m=59$ ). Our results demonstrate that stacking metal mono and dichalcogenides allows to convert a metal/superconductor into an insulator/superconductor system, prospecting the control of twodimensional superconductivity in embedded layers. $m>9$ 
Abstract We report the temperature dependence of the Yb valence in the geometrically frustrated compound
from 12 to 300 K using resonant xray emission spectroscopy at the Yb ${\mathrm{Y}\mathrm{b}\mathrm{B}}_{4}$ transition. We find that the Yb valence, ${L}_{{\alpha}_{1}}$v , is hybridized between thev = 2 andv = 3 valence states, increasing from at 12 K to $v=2.61\pm 0.01$ at 300 K, confirming that $v=2.67\pm 0.01$ is a Kondo system in the intermediate valence regime. This result indicates that the Kondo interaction in ${\mathrm{Y}\mathrm{b}\mathrm{B}}_{4}$ is substantial, and is likely to be the reason why ${\mathrm{Y}\mathrm{b}\mathrm{B}}_{4}$ does not order magnetically at low temperature, rather than this being an effect of geometric frustration. Furthermore, the zeropoint valence of the system is extracted from our data and compared with other Kondo lattice systems. The zeropoint valence seems to be weakly dependent on the Kondo temperature scale, but not on the valence change temperature scale ${\mathrm{Y}\mathrm{b}\mathrm{B}}_{4}$T _{v}. 
Abstract Environmental seismic disturbances limit the sensitivity of LIGO gravitational wave detectors. Trains near the LIGO Livingston detector produce low frequency (0.5–
) ground noise that couples into the gravitational wave sensitive frequency band (10– $10\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\mathrm{H}\mathrm{z}$ ) through light reflected in mirrors and other surfaces. We investigate the effect of trains during the Advanced LIGO third observing run, and propose a method to search for narrow band seismic frequencies responsible for contributing to increases in scattered light. Through the use of the linear regression tool Lasso (least absolute shrinkage and selection operator) and glitch correlations, we identify the most common seismic frequencies that correlate with increases in detector noise as 0.6– $100\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\mathrm{H}\mathrm{z}$ , 1.7– $0.8\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\mathrm{H}\mathrm{z}$ , 1.8– $1.9\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\mathrm{H}\mathrm{z}$ , and 2.3– $2.0\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\mathrm{H}\mathrm{z}$ in the LIGO Livingston corner station. $2.5\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\mathrm{H}\mathrm{z}$ 
Abstract We consider the threedimensional Euler equations in a domain with a free boundary with no surface tension. We assume that
is such that ${u}_{0}\in {H}^{2.5+\delta}$ in an arbitrarily small neighborhood of the free boundary, and we use the Lagrangian approach to derive an a priori estimate that can be used to prove localintime existence and uniqueness of solutions under the Rayleigh–Taylor stability condition. $\mathrm{c}\mathrm{u}\mathrm{r}\mathrm{l}{u}_{0}\in {H}^{2+\delta}$ 
Abstract The family of transitionmetal dipnictides has been of theoretical and experimental interest because this family hosts topological states and extremely large magnetoresistance (MR). Recently,
, a member of this family, has been predicted to support a topological crystalline insulating state. Here, by using highresolution angleresolved photoemission spectroscopy (ARPES), we reveal both closed and open pockets in the metallic Fermi surface (FS) and linearly dispersive bands on the ( ${\mathrm{T}\mathrm{a}\mathrm{A}\mathrm{s}}_{2}$ ) surface, along with the presence of extreme MR observed from magnetotransport measurements. A comparison of the ARPES results with firstprinciples computations shows that the linearly dispersive bands on the measured surface of $\stackrel{\u203e}{2}01$ are trivial bulk bands. The absence of symmetryprotected surface state on the ( ${\mathrm{T}\mathrm{a}\mathrm{A}\mathrm{s}}_{2}$ ) surface indicates its topologically dark nature. The presence of open FS features suggests that the openorbit fermiology could contribute to the extremely large MR of $\stackrel{\u203e}{2}01$ . ${\mathrm{T}\mathrm{a}\mathrm{A}\mathrm{s}}_{2}$
