  • A reaction-diffusion model to understand granulomas formation inside secondary lobule during tuberculosis infection 

    Català Sabaté, Martí; Prats Soler, Clara; López Codina, Daniel; Cardona, Pere-Joan; Alonso Muñoz, Sergio (Public Library of Science (PLOS), 2020-09-16)
    Article
    Open Access
    Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb) is the causative agent for tuberculosis, the most extended infectious disease around the world. When Mtb enters inside the pulmonary alveolus it is rapidly phagocytosed by the alveolar ...
  • Experimental study of speckle patterns generated by low-coherence semiconductor laser light

    Speckle is a wave interference phenomenon that has been studied in various fields, including optics, hydrodynamics, and acoustics. Speckle patterns contain spectral information of the interfering waves and of the scattering ...
  • Finite-range effects in ultradilute quantum drops 

    Cikojevic, Viktor; Vranješ Markic, Leandra; Boronat Medico, Jordi (2020-05-27)
    Article
    Open Access
    In the first experimental realization of dilute Bose–Bose liquid drops using two hyperfine states of 39K some discrepancies between theory and experiment were observed. The standard analysis of the data using the Lee–Huang–Yang ...
  • Atomic processes of shear-coupled migration in {112} twins and vicinal grain boundaries in bcc-Fe 

    Kvashin, Nikolai; García-Müller, Pablo Luis; Anento Moreno, Napoleón; Serra Tort, Ana María (American Physical Society (APS), 2020-07)
    Article
    Open Access
    Tilt {112} grain boundaries (GBs) in bcc metals perform shear-coupled grain-boundary migration by the creation and glide of disconnections. Disconnection dipoles may be created at the pristine GB at high stresses or may ...
  • Electrodynamics of conductive oxides: intensity-dependent anisotropy, reconstruction of the effective dielectric constant, and harmonic generation 

    Scalora, Michael; Trull Silvestre, José Francisco; Ceglia, Domenico de; Vincenti, M. A.; Akozbek, Neset; Coppens, Zachary; Rodríguez Suñé, Laura; Cojocaru, Crina (2020-05-13)
    Article
    Open Access
    We study electromagnetic pulse propagation in an indium tin oxide nanolayer in the linear and nonlinear regimes. We use the constitutive relations to reconstruct the effective dielectric constant of the medium, and show ...
  • Modelling the dynamics of tuberculosis lesions in a virtual lung: role of the bronchial tree in endogenous reinfection 

    Català Sabaté, Martí; Bechini, Jordi; Tenesa, Montserrat; Pérez, Ricardo; Moya, Mariano; Vilaplana, Cristina; Valls Ribas, Joaquim; Alonso Muñoz, Sergio; López Codina, Daniel; Cardona Iglesias, Pere Joan; Prats Soler, Clara (2020-05-20)
    Article
    Open Access
    Tuberculosis (TB) is an infectious disease that still causes more than 1.5 million deaths annually. The World Health Organization estimates that around 30% of the world’s population is latently infected. However, the ...
  • Dilute dipolar quantum droplets beyond the extended Gross-Pitaevskii equation 

    Bötcher, Fabian; Wenzel, Matthias; Schmidt, Jan-Niklas; Guo, Mingyang; Langen, Tim; Ferrier-Barbut, Igor; Pfau, Tilman; Bombín Escudero, Raul; Sánchez Baena, Juan; Boronat Medico, Jordi; Mazzanti Castrillejo, Fernando Pablo (American Physical Society, 2019-11-08)
    Article
    Open Access
    Dipolar quantum droplets are exotic quantum objects that are self-bound due to the subtle balance of attraction, repulsion, and quantum correlations. Here we present a systematic study of the critical atom number of these ...
  • Supersolid stripes enhanced by correlations in a Raman spin-orbit-coupled system 

    Sánchez Baena, Juan; Boronat Medico, Jordi; Mazzanti Castrillejo, Fernando Pablo (American Physical Society (APS), 2020-04-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    A Bose gas under the effect of Raman spin-orbit coupling (SOC) is analyzed using the discrete spin T-moves diffusion Monte Carlo method. Upon computing the energy as well as the static structure factor and the superfluid ...
  • Optimal estimations of directional wave conditions for nearshore field studies 

    Swart, Rinse Leendert de; Ribas Prats, Francesca; Calvete Manrique, Daniel; Kroon, Aart; Orfila, Alejandro (2020-05-15)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Accurate directional wave conditions at shallow water are crucial for nearshore field studies and necessary as boundary conditions for morphodynamic models. However, obtaining reliable results for all wave parameters can ...
  • Stabilized narrow-beam emission from broad-area semiconductor lasers 

    Medina Pardell, Judith; Herrero Simon, Ramon; Botey Cumella, Muriel; Staliunas, Kestutis (2020-03-20)
    Article
    Open Access
    We provide a feasible and compact scheme to control and stabilize the spatiotemporal dynamics of broad-area semiconductor (BAS) lasers. The proposal is based on the ability of non-Hermitian potentials with given local ...
  • Remote recovery of audio signals from videos of optical speckle patterns: a comparative study of signal recovery algorithms
