The Current Energy Situation: Summary Points, David W. Hafemeister, A. Brecher, A. Fainberg, R. Howes, R. Socolow, D. Bodansky, P. Craig, B. Hammer, S. Smith, E. Stechel

Physics

Energy problems are now being largely ignored, despite their continuing importance. The near-disappearance of energy from the U.S. public agenda is apparent in the scant attention given to energy topics by the media and by public figures. Some suggestions for governmental action were stimulated by the rise in gasoline prices in the Spring of 1996, but the matter was treated as a short-term anomaly -- not as a harbinger of more severe difficulties to come. This lack of long term concern is perhaps natural, because fuel supplies are generally ample and prices are still relatively low, with the real cost ...

Magnetic Properties Of Tunicate Blood Cells. Ii. Ascidia Ceratodes, Kenneth Kustin, William E. Robinson, Richard B. Frankel, K. Spartalian Aug 1996

Magnetic Properties Of Tunicate Blood Cells. Ii. Ascidia Ceratodes, Kenneth Kustin, William E. Robinson, Richard B. Frankel, K. Spartalian

Physics

The magnetic properties of intact blood cells of the tunicate Ascidia ceratodes have been measured up to 50 kOe with a SQUID susceptometer. Analysis of total metal contents by plasma emission spectroscopy and V(IV) content by epr indicates that approximately 5% of the accumulated vanadium is +4 vanadyl ion. Measured values of the magnetic moment MP at different values of the applied magnetic field H over the temperature range T = 2–100 K depend on the magnitude of the field indicating magnetic anisotropy of the ground state. The slope of the MP vs. H/T curve at ...


Resource Letter Belfef-1: Biological Effects Of Low-Frequency Electromagnetic Fields, David W. Hafemeister Aug 1996

Resource Letter Belfef-1: Biological Effects Of Low-Frequency Electromagnetic Fields, David W. Hafemeister

Physics

This Resource Letter provides a guide to the literature on the interaction of extremely low-frequency electromagnetic field (ELF/EMF) interactions with biological matter, and on the possibility that such interactions could have a harmful effect on human health. Journal articles and books are cited for the following topics: ELF/EMF theoretical interactions with biological cells, organs and organisms, magnetic dipole interactions, sensing by animals, biomedical–biophysical experiments, epidemiology, and litigation–mitigation risk issues.

Heat-Capacity And Magnetic Measurements On The Y(Ni2-XCoX)B2C System, C. C. Hoellwarth, P. Klavins, R. N. Shelton Feb 1996

Heat-Capacity And Magnetic Measurements On The Y(Ni2-XCoX)B2C System, C. C. Hoellwarth, P. Klavins, R. N. Shelton

Physics

We have performed field-and temperature-dependent magnetization, resistivity, and heat-capacity measurements on polycrystalline samples of the Y(Ni2-xCox)B2C system with 0.0≤x≤0.4. Values of Tc ,x0,Hc2D,λ and N(Ed) were determined for various samples. We observe that ΘD increases with x, while all the other parameters decrease with x. The Tc vs x data can be described using the BCS theory and the measured values of N(Ef)and ΘD. The results suggest that the decrease in Tc is ...
