Optical Interferometry (2017)
Rijeka, Croatia : InTech
Keywords: optics ; lasers ; interferometry
Notes: Optical methods of measurements are the most sensitive techniques of noncontact investigations, and at the same time, they are fast as well as accurate which increases reproducibility of observed results. In recent years, the importance of optical interferometry methods for research has dramatically increased, and applications range from precise surface testing to finding extrasolar planets. This book covers various aspects of optical interferometry including descriptions of novel apparatuses and methods, application interferometry for studying biological objects, surface qualities, materials characterization, and optical testing. The book includes a series of chapters in which experts share recent progress in interferometry through original research and literature reviews.

Incorporation of Chromium(III) and Chromium(VI) Oxides in a Simulated Basaltic, Industrial Waste Glass-Ceramic (2004)
Oxford, UK : Blackwell Publishing Ltd
ISSN: 1551-2916
Source: Blackwell Publishing Journal Backfiles 1879-2005
Topics: Mechanical Engineering, Materials Science, Production Engineering, Mining and Metallurgy, Traffic Engineering, Precision Mechanics , Physics
Notes: Chromium, an EPA listed toxic element concentrated in many industrial wastes, was stabilized using waste vitrification. Cr2O3 and CrO3 were loaded into a simulated basaltic base composition, vitrified, and cooled at various rates. Chromium incorporation mechanisms, vitrification processability, effect of initial Cr oxidation state, and product performance were investigated. At 1500°C, Cr2O3 has a low solubility limit (0.54 wt%) in the base composition, and crystallized as Cr-rich primary spinel (Mg,Fe)(Fe,Al,Cr)2O4. On cooling, Cr-depleted secondary spinel and augite (Na,Ca)(Mg,Fe2+,Al)(Si,Al)2O6 crystallized. Cr(VI) was converted into Cr(III) on vitrification. The apparent viscosity of the melts was estimated using the Bottinga–Weill model as corrected by Roscoe's equation. The end products showed Cr2O3 loading capacities as high as 16.7 wt% without exceeding the toxicity-leaching limit defined by EPA. The annealed products had Vickers's hardness of about 800 kg·F/mm2 and can be classified as medium-grade abrasives.

PAPER (OA)
State and local governments plan for development of most land vulnerable to rising sea level along the US Atlantic coast (2010)
Publication Date: 2014-11-05
Description: Author Posting. © The Author(s), 2009. This is the author's version of the work. It is posted here by permission of IOP Publishing for personal use, not for redistribution. The definitive version was published in Environmental Research Letters 4 (2009): 044008, doi:10.1088/1748-9326/4/4/044008.|Rising sea level threatens existing coastal wetlands. Overall ecosystems could often survive by migrating inland, if adjacent lands remained vacant. On the basis of 131 state and local land use plans, we estimate that almost 60% of the land below 1 m along the US Atlantic coast is expected to be developed and thus unavailable for the inland migration of wetlands. Less than 10% of the land below 1 m has been set aside for conservation. Environmental regulators routinely grant permits for shore protection structures (which block wetland migration) on the basis of a federal finding that these structures have no cumulative environmental impact. Our results suggest that shore protection does have a cumulative impact. If sea level rise is taken into account, wetland policies that previously seemed to comply with federal law probably violate the Clean Water Act.

Notes: The traditional method to manufacture the medical implant or prosthesis is based onsculpting and on the tissue site,or takes impressions of the entire face about human. The accuracyand efficiency of medical implant or prosthesis produced by conventional method is heavily reliedon the skill and experience of both designer and manufacturer. In this paper, an integrated methodof medical implant manufacture is approached. This integrated strategy was to establish a systemthat allows fabrication of facial prosthesis from digital information, and integrates the rapidprototyping with modeling technology of complex three-dimensional geometry fromhigh-resolution non-invasive imaging, reverse engineering and computer aided design. The researchresults have shown that the integrated method can produce more exact-fit medical implant, that is,the physical model of the implant is more exactly fitted on the skull model. The advantages of thismethod are that the surgeon can plan and rehearse the surgery in advance, and a less invasivesurgical procedure, and less time-consuming reconstructive, and an adequate esthetic can result

Thinking outside the box: new insights into the mechanism of GroEL-mediated protein folding (1999)
[s.l.] : Nature America Inc.
Nature structural biology 6 (1999), S. 597-600 
ISSN: 1072-8368

Notes: [Auszug] GroEL is thought to assist protein folding in part by providing a passive 'box' in which folding can occur without danger of aggregation. Two new papers now suggest that GroEL can also play a more active role by promoting rearrangement and even unfolding of kinetic folding ...

Influence of defect absorption on the absorption edge in Hg0.8Cd0.2Te (1990)
Woodbury, NY : American Institute of Physics (AIP)
Applied Physics Letters 57 (1990), S. 363-365 
ISSN: 1077-3118
Source: AIP Digital Archive
Topics: Physics
Notes: The optical absorption edges in gettered and ungettered Hg0.8Cd0.2Te alloys have been investigated. It is found that the absorption edge was moved to the short wave direction after the sample was gettered. The change of absorption edge has also been found in Hg0.8Cd0.2Te containing different mercury concentrations. Possible explanations for the phenomena are discussed.

Intense visible light emission from fullerene-doped silica aerogel (1995)
[S.l.] : American Institute of Physics (AIP)
Journal of Applied Physics 77 (1995), S. 2801-2803 
ISSN: 1089-7550
Source: AIP Digital Archive
Topics: Physics
Notes: We report that fullerenes (C60/C70) can be uniformly encased in silica aerogel by sol-gel process together with supercritical drying technique. Intense visible light emission (2.26 eV) is observable with the naked eye from the composite under an Ar+ laser (488 nm) excitation at room temperature. The luminescent intensity is found to increase strongly with low doping of fullerenes (0.05 mol %) and then to decrease while the peak is red shifted, and finally quenched upon heavy doping (up to 2.5 mol %). This effect is consistent with the behavior of the fullerenes entrapped in the micropores linked by the silica networks resulting in the quantum confinement effect which then produce emission far above the interband gap of C60/C70. © 1995 American Institute of Physics.

Gettering of bulk impurities by surface damage in Hg0.8Cd0.2Te wafers (1991)
[S.l.] : American Institute of Physics (AIP)
Journal of Applied Physics 69 (1991), S. 3512-3516 
ISSN: 1089-7550
Source: AIP Digital Archive
Topics: Physics
Notes: The residual impurities in Hg0.8Cd0.2Te crystal have been investigated by using secondary-ion mass spectrometry. It was observed that the impurities are richer in near-surface layer than bulk material. This phenomenon was proved to be related to defect gettering by surface damage. In addition, the measurements of Hall effect and infrared spectra in gettered and ungettered Hg0.8Cd0.2Te wafers have been performed. It was found that the electrical properties of gettered Hg0.8Cd0.2Te wafers were superior to ungettered wafers. The absorption edges moved towards shorter wavelengths and the average transmittance increased in gettered wafers. These can probably be explained by assuming the residual impurity concentration in gettered wafers is relatively low. The results indicate that the defect gettering technique can be used to effectively reduce residual impurities in Hg0.8Cd0.2Te wafers.
