  4. Accounting for Spontaneous Charge Production in the EMCCD Gain Register

    May 16, 2024 Lectures

    An electron-multiplying charge-coupled device (EMCCD) is often used for taking images with space telescopes and other devices. Photons hit the pixels and photo-electrons are created, and these are multiplied...

  5. Stellar Spin and Spots with Roman

    April 18, 2024 Lectures

    Rotation and star spots reveal insights to the magnetic lives of stars. Stars less massive than the Sun experience magnetic braking, slowing their rotation as they age. This spin-down should allow us to...

  6. Obscured AGN: Hiding High Growth at the Cosmic Noon

    March 21, 2024 Lectures

    Most bulge-dominated galaxies host black holes with masses that tightly correlate with the masses of their bulges. This correlation suggests that black holes and their host galaxies may co-evolve or mutually...

  7. The Total Solar Eclipse of April 2024

    March 5, 2024 Lectures

    Speakers: Michael Kirk (NASA Goddard Space Flight Center) and John Maple (Space Telescope Science Institute) On Monday, April 8, 2024, a total solar eclipse will pass over Mexico, the United States,...

  8. Astronomy Re-envisioned: Investigating the Physics of Galaxy Evolution with Machine Learning

    February 15, 2024 Lectures

    Astronomical imaging of galaxies reveals how they formed and evolved. While spectroscopy is necessary for measuring galaxies' physical properties, such as their cold gas content or metallicity, it...

  9. Simulation of High-contrast Polarimetric Observations of Debris Disks with the Roman Coronagraph Instrument

    January 18, 2024 Lectures

    The Nancy Grace Roman Space Telescope Coronagraph Instrument will enable the polarimetric imaging of debris disks and inner dust belts in the optical and near-infrared wavelengths, in addition to the high-contrast...

  12. The Detection of M-L-T-Y Dwarfs Belonging to our Milky Way Disks and Stellar Halo with the Roman Space Telescope

    October 19, 2023 Lectures

    How many low-mass stars are in the Milky Way? And where are these low-mass stars and free-floating planet-like objects in our Galaxy? One can use the High Latitude Survey with the Roman Space Telescope...

  13. History of the Roman Observatory Design, and Current Build Status

    September 21, 2023 Lectures

    This talk presents the history of the design of what is now the Nancy Grace Roman Space Telescope observatory. Significant evolution from the 2010 Astrophysics decadal submission to flight is traced, with...
