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
The family of transitionmetal dipnictides has been of theoretical and experimental interest because this family hosts topological states and extremely large magnetoresistance (MR). Recently,

Abstract 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 measure the thermal electron energization in 1D and 2D particleincell simulations of quasiperpendicular, lowbeta (
β _{p}= 0.25) collisionless ion–electron shocks with mass ratiom _{i}/m _{e}= 200, fast Mach number –4, and upstream magnetic field angle ${\mathcal{M}}_{\mathrm{ms}}=1$θ _{Bn}= 55°–85° from the shock normal . It is known that shock electron heating is described by an ambipolar, $\stackrel{\u02c6}{\mathit{n}}$ parallel electric potential jump, ΔB ϕ _{∥}, that scales roughly linearly with the electron temperature jump. Our simulations have –0.2 in units of the preshock ions’ bulk kinetic energy, in agreement with prior measurements and simulations. Different ways to measure $\mathrm{\Delta}{\varphi}_{\parallel}/(0.5{m}_{\mathrm{i}}{{u}_{\mathrm{sh}}}^{2})\sim 0.1$ϕ _{∥}, including the use of de Hoffmann–Teller frame fields, agree to tensofpercent accuracy. Neglecting offdiagonal electron pressure tensor terms can lead to a systematic underestimate ofϕ _{∥}in our lowβ _{p}shocks. We further focus on twoθ _{Bn}= 65° shocks: a ( ${\mathcal{M}}_{\mathrm{s}}\phantom{\rule{0.25em}{0ex}}=\phantom{\rule{0.25em}{0ex}}4$ ) case with a long, 30 ${\mathcal{M}}_{\mathrm{A}}\phantom{\rule{0.25em}{0ex}}=\phantom{\rule{0.25em}{0ex}}1.8$d _{i}precursor of whistler waves along , and a $\stackrel{\u02c6}{\mathit{n}}$ ( ${\mathcal{M}}_{\mathrm{s}}\phantom{\rule{0.25em}{0ex}}=\phantom{\rule{0.25em}{0ex}}7$ ) case with a shorter, 5 ${\mathcal{M}}_{\mathrm{A}}\phantom{\rule{0.25em}{0ex}}=\phantom{\rule{0.25em}{0ex}}3.2$d _{i}precursor of whistlers oblique to both and $\stackrel{\u02c6}{\mathit{n}}$ ;B d _{i}is the ion skin depth. Within the precursors,ϕ _{∥}has a secular rise toward the shock along multiple whistler wavelengths and also has localized spikes within magnetic troughs. In a 1D simulation of the , ${\mathcal{M}}_{\mathrm{s}}\phantom{\rule{0.25em}{0ex}}=\phantom{\rule{0.25em}{0ex}}4$θ _{Bn}= 65° case,ϕ _{∥}shows a weak dependence on the electron plasmatocyclotron frequency ratioω _{pe}/Ω_{ce}, andϕ _{∥}decreases by a factor of 2 asm _{i}/m _{e}is raised to the true proton–electron value of 1836. 
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 The sensitivity of urban canopy air temperature (
) to anthropogenic heat flux ( ${T}_{a}$ ) is known to vary with space and time, but the key factors controlling such spatiotemporal variabilities remain elusive. To quantify the contributions of different physical processes to the magnitude and variability of ${Q}_{AH}$ (where $\mathrm{\Delta}{T}_{a}/\mathrm{\Delta}{Q}_{AH}$ represents a change), we develop a forcingfeedback framework based on the energy budget of air within the urban canopy layer and apply it to diagnosing $\mathrm{\Delta}$ simulated by the Community Land Model Urban over the contiguous United States (CONUS). In summer, the median $\mathrm{\Delta}{T}_{a}/\mathrm{\Delta}{Q}_{AH}$ is around 0.01 $\mathrm{\Delta}{T}_{a}/\mathrm{\Delta}{Q}_{AH}$ over the CONUS. Besides the direct effect of $\text{K\hspace{0.17em}}{\left(\text{W\hspace{0.17em}}{\text{m}}^{\text{2}}\right)}^{1}$ on ${Q}_{AH}$ , there are important feedbacks through changes in the surface temperature, the atmosphere–canopy air heat conductance ( ${T}_{a}$ ), and the surface–canopy air heat conductance. The positive and negative feedbacks nearly cancel each other out and ${c}_{a}$ is mostly controlled by the direct effect in summer. In winter, $\mathrm{\Delta}{T}_{a}/\mathrm{\Delta}{Q}_{AH}$ becomes stronger, with the median value increased by about 20% due to weakened negative feedback associated with $\mathrm{\Delta}{T}_{a}/\mathrm{\Delta}{Q}_{AH}$ . The spatial and temporal (both seasonal and diurnal) variability of ${c}_{a}$ as well as the nonlinear response of $\mathrm{\Delta}{T}_{a}/\mathrm{\Delta}{Q}_{AH}$ to $\mathrm{\Delta}{T}_{a}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ are strongly related to the variability of $\mathrm{\Delta}{Q}_{AH}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ , highlighting the importance of correctly parameterizing convective heat transfer in urban canopy models. ${c}_{a}$ 
Abstract We present a theory based on the conventional twoterm (i.e. Lorentzian) approximation to the exact solution of the Boltzmann equation in nonmagnetized weakly ionized plasma to efficiently obtain the electron rate and transport coefficients in a magnetized plasma for an arbitrary magnitude and direction of applied electric field
and magnetic field $\stackrel{\u20d7}{E}$ . The proposed transcendental method does not require the twoterm solution of the Boltzmann equation in magnetized plasma, based on which the transport parameters vary as a function of the reduced electric field $\stackrel{\u20d7}{B}$ , reduced electron cyclotron frequency $E/N$ , and angle ${\omega}_{\mathrm{c}\mathrm{e}}/N$ between $\mathrm{\angle}\stackrel{\u20d7}{E},\stackrel{\u20d7}{B}$ and $\stackrel{\u20d7}{E}$ vectors, where $\stackrel{\u20d7}{B}$N is the density of neutrals. Comparisons between the coefficients derived from BOLSIG+’s solution (obtained via the twoterm expansion when ) and coefficients of the presented method are illustrated for air, a mixture of molecular hydrogen (H_{2}) and helium (He) representing the giant gas planets of the Solar System, and pure carbon dioxide (CO_{2}). The new approach may be used in the modeling of magnetized plasma encountered in the context of transient luminous events, e.g. sprite streamers in the atmosphere of Earth and Jupiter, in modeling the propagation of lightning’s electromagnetic pulses in Earth’s ionosphere, and in various laboratory and industrial applications of nonthermal plasmas. $\stackrel{\u20d7}{B}\ne 0$
