  • We present new Hubble Space Telescope imaging of the outer regions of M87 in order to study its globular cluster (GC) population out to large galactocentric distances. We discuss, particularly, the relationship between GC effective radii r{sub h} and projected galactocentric distance R {sub gc}. The observations suggest a shallow trend r{sub h}∝R{sub gc}{sup 0.14} out to R {sub gc} ∼ 100 kpc, in agreement with studies of other giant elliptical galaxies. To theoretically reproduce this relationship, we simulate GC populations with various distributions of orbits. For an isotropic distribution of cluster orbits, we find a steeper trend of r{submore » h}∝R{sub gc}{sup 0.4}. Instead, we suggest that (1) if the cluster system has an orbital anisotropy profile, where orbits become preferentially radial with increasing galactocentric distance, and (2) if clusters become more tidally underfilling with galactocentric distance, then the observed relationship can be recovered. We also apply this approach to the red and blue GC populations separately and predict that red clusters are preferentially underfilling at large R {sub gc} and have a more isotropic distribution of orbits than blue clusters.« less
  • We investigated orbital ordering states in the vicinity of the Mott transition in RTiO{sub 3} and LaTiO{sub 3.02} (R=Gd,Sm,Nd,La) using resonant x-ray scattering (RXS) at the 1s{yields}3d transition energy of the K absorption edge of Ti. We measured the energy and azimuthal angle dependences of the resonant signal at the reflections of Q=(1 0 0) (0 1 1), and (0 0 1). The RXS intensity gradually decreased with decreasing the GdFeO{sub 3}-type distortion. Although there is a magnetic phase boundary between GdTiO{sub 3} (ferromagnet) and SmTiO{sub 3} (antiferromagnet), the ratio among the magnitudes at those reflections was almost the same.more » The azimuthal angle dependence also showed an identical periodicity at each scattering vector. With further decreasing the GdFeO{sub 3}-type distortion, the magnitude of the RXS in LaTiO{sub 3} became small and almost isotropic. This means that the orbital state of LaTiO{sub 3} is different from those of RTiO{sub 3} (R=Y,Gd,Sm). Furthermore, when we approached the Mott transition by hole doping, the signal of the RXS disappeared in LaTiO{sub 3.02}, which is just located on the metal-insulator boundary. This indicates a disappearance of the orbital ordering at the Mott transition.« less
  • We present an electronic Raman scattering study of the colossal magnetoresistance manganese perovskites as a function of temperature, magnetic field, symmetry, and doping. The low-frequency electronic Raman spectrum of these materials exhibits a distinctive change through the paramagnetic insulator/ferromagnetic metal transition, characterized by a transformation from a diffusive scattering response to a flat continuum response. We also find that the magnetic-field dependence of electronic Raman scattering in the manganese perovskites is both highly anisotropic and indicative of an inhomogeneous ferromagnetic phase.
