Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Quantum mechanics
  • Astronomy
  • Astrophysics

Silvia Zane mainly focuses on Astrophysics, Neutron star, Astronomy, Pulsar and Magnetar. Her studies deal with areas such as Spectral line and Flux as well as Astrophysics. Her Neutron star research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Polarimetry, White dwarf, Black-body radiation, Field of view and Optical polarization.

In Astronomy, Silvia Zane works on issues like Detector, which are connected to Scientific instrument. Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Gamma ray, Scattering and Flare. The concepts of her Magnetar study are interwoven with issues in Stars, Orders of magnitude and Magnetic dipole.

Her most cited work include:

  • A low-magnetic-field Soft Gamma Repeater (315 citations)
  • The Hot and Energetic Universe: A White Paper presenting the science theme motivating the Athena+ mission (313 citations)
  • Magnetars: the physics behind observations (266 citations)

What are the main themes of her work throughout her whole career to date?

Her primary areas of investigation include Astrophysics, Neutron star, Pulsar, Astronomy and Magnetar. Her Astrophysics research incorporates elements of Spectral line, Magnetic field, Flux and Black-body radiation. She focuses mostly in the field of Neutron star, narrowing it down to topics relating to ROSAT and, in certain cases, Interstellar medium.

Her Pulsar research integrates issues from Radius, Scattering and Proper motion. Her Astronomy study frequently draws connections to other fields, such as Gamma ray. In the field of Magnetar, her study on Soft gamma repeater overlaps with subjects such as Context.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Astrophysics (79.92%)
  • Neutron star (48.30%)
  • Pulsar (34.66%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Astrophysics (79.92%)
  • Astronomy (35.04%)
  • Magnetar (29.73%)

In recent papers she was focusing on the following fields of study:

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Astrophysics, Astronomy, Magnetar, Neutron star and Pulsar. Her research integrates issues of Spectroscopy, Spectral line and Scattering in her study of Astrophysics. While the research belongs to areas of Astronomy, Silvia Zane spends her time largely on the problem of Polarimetry, intersecting her research to questions surrounding Payload.

Her Magnetar study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Flux, Compton telescope and Black-body radiation. In her study, Magnetosphere, Radiative transfer and Vacuum polarization is strongly linked to Polarization, which falls under the umbrella field of Neutron star. As a member of one scientific family, Silvia Zane mostly works in the field of Pulsar, focusing on Mass ratio and, on occasion, Globular cluster.

Between 2015 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • XIPE: the x-ray imaging polarimetry explorer (143 citations)
  • Science with e-ASTROGAM (A space mission for MeV-GeV gamma-ray astrophysics) (117 citations)
  • Evidence for vacuum birefringence from the first optical-polarimetry measurement of the isolated neutron star RX J1856.5−3754 (97 citations)

In her most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Quantum mechanics
  • Astronomy
  • Electron

Astrophysics, Astronomy, Observatory, Neutron star and Magnetar are her primary areas of study. Her work in Pulsar and Light curve are all subfields of Astrophysics research. Silvia Zane has included themes like Detector and Photon energy in her Astronomy study.

Her Observatory research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Polarimetry, Sky, Spectral resolution, Gravitational wave and Supermassive black hole. Her studies in Neutron star integrate themes in fields like Polarization in astronomy, Polarization, Telescope and Thermal radiation. Her study in Magnetar is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Luminosity, Methods observational and Library science.
