New discovery by Prof. Luis Lehner featured on CBC

With collaborators Carlos Palenzuela and Steve Liebling, Prof. Luis Lehner discovered by numerical simulations that merging supermassive black holes can give rise to powerful emissions of plasma collimated into a single jet. This single jet is the result of the merger of the individual jets attached to each black hole, which merge together as the black holes merge. This effect has clear observational consequences, and will permit the precise localization of the system which hosts the merging black holes.

Congratulations to James LeBlanc!

One of the figures from a paper by graduate student James LeBlanc has been selected for display on the front page of the redesigned journal web site of Physical Review B ( under the new feature \"Kaleidoscope\" where it will appear (rotating with 11 others) on the main page for approximately one month, and will also appear (permanently) on the archive page ( The figure is from the paper \"Signatures of superconducting gap inhomogeneities in optical properties\", by J.P.F. LeBlanc, E.J. Nicol, and J.P. Carbotte, Phys.
