“The reported anomalies the team examined are many – two prominent cold spots, strength of the quadrupole, lack of large angular scale CMB power, alignment of the quadrupole and octupole components, hemispherical or dipole power asymmetry, to name but a handful – but the reasons for the apparent anomalies are few.”
“Nevertheless, the supermode idea is still constrained — the dipole cancels, but there are higher-order effects (quadrupole and octupole) that are observable.”
“We show that an adiabatic superhorizon perturbation in a LCDM universe does not generate a CMB temperature dipole, and we derive constraints to the amplitude and wavelength of a superhorizon potential perturbation from measurements of the CMB quadrupole and octupole.”
“In particular, the octupole moment (l = 3) is now in much better agreement than it used to be.”
“2S1 / 2-2F7 / 2 electric octupole transition in a single 171Yb+ ion, Phys.”
“But we still need to develop a narrower probe laser to drive the octupole clock transition more efficiently and without perturbing the ion's spectrum too much.”
‘octupole’ hasn't been added to any lists yet.
Looking for tweets for octupole.
