Novel Switching Phenomena In Ferroelectric Langmuir-Blodgett Films, A. Bune, Stephen Ducharme, V.M. Fridkin, L. Blinov, S. Palto, N. Petukhova, S. Yudin Dec 1995

Novel Switching Phenomena In Ferroelectric Langmuir-Blodgett Films, A. Bune, Stephen Ducharme, V.M. Fridkin, L. Blinov, S. Palto, N. Petukhova, S. Yudin

Stephen Ducharme Publications

We have established ferroelectric switching and observed a novel conductance switching phenomenon in ferroelectric polymer films fabricated by the Langmuir–Blodgett technique. The films consist of 10–30 monolayers (ML) of a copolymer of vinylidene fluoride (70%) and trifluoroethylene (30%), exhibiting a first-order ferroelectric phase transition at 70 °C and nearly rectangular ferroelectric and conductance hysteresis at 24 °C. Ferroelectric switching is accompanied by switching of the conductance by three orders of magnitude. A model describing this switching phenomenon is proposed.

Locally Optimally Emitting Clouds And The Origin Of Quasar Emission Lines, Jack Baldwin, Gary J. Ferland, Kirk Korista, Dima Verner Dec 1995

Locally Optimally Emitting Clouds And The Origin Of Quasar Emission Lines, Jack Baldwin, Gary J. Ferland, Kirk Korista, Dima Verner

Physics and Astronomy Faculty Publications

The similarity of quasar line spectra has been taken as an indication that the emission line clouds have preferred parameters, suggesting that the environment is subject to a fine-tuning process. We show here that the observed spectrum is a natural consequence of powerful selection effects. We computed a large grid of photoionization models covering the widest possible range of cloud gas density and distance from the central continuum source. For each line only a narrow range of density and distance from the continuum source results in maximum reprocessing efficiency, corresponding to "locally optimally emitting clouds" (LOCs). These parameters depend on …


A Simple Model To Estimate Atmospheric Concentrations Of Aerosol Chemical Species Based On Snow Core Chemistry At Summit, Greenland, M H. Bergin, C Davidson, Jack E. Dibb, J L. Jaffrezo, H D. Kuhns, S N. Pandis Dec 1995

A Simple Model To Estimate Atmospheric Concentrations Of Aerosol Chemical Species Based On Snow Core Chemistry At Summit, Greenland, M H. Bergin, C Davidson, Jack E. Dibb, J L. Jaffrezo, H D. Kuhns, S N. Pandis

Earth Sciences

A simple model is presented to estimate atmospheric concentrations of chemical species that exist primarily as aerosols based on snow core/ice core chemistry at Summit, Greenland. The model considers the processes of snow, fog, and dry deposition. The deposition parameters for each of the processes are estimated for SO42− and Ca2+ and are based on experiments conducted during the 1993 and 1994 summer field seasons. The seasonal mean atmospheric concentrations are estimated based on the deposition parameters and snow cores obtained during the field seasons. The ratios of the estimated seasonal mean airborne concentration divided by the …

Computer Assistance In Discovering Formulas And Theorems In System Engineering, J. W. Helton, Mark Stankus Dec 1995

Computer Assistance In Discovering Formulas And Theorems In System Engineering, J. W. Helton, Mark Stankus

Mathematics

If one reads a typical article on A,B,C,D systems in the control transactions, one finds that most of the algebra involved is non commutative rather than commutative. Thus, for symbolic computing to have much impact on linear systems research, one needs a program which will do non-commuting operations. Mathematica, Macsyma and Maple do not. We have a package, NCAlgebra, which runs under Mathematica which does the basic operations, block matrix manipulations and other things. The package might be seen as a competitor to a yellow pad. Like Mathematica the emphasis is on interaction with the program and flexibility.

Multifragment disintegrations have been measured for central Au+Au collisions at EA=35 MeV. Fragment emission occurs predominantly at low center of mass energies of about EA≈5 MeV, consistent with a Coulomb dominated breakup of a single source. Mean fragment multiplicities of ⟨NIMF⟩≈10.8 are extracted after correction for the detection efficiency. The fragment charge distributions decrease much more gradually than expected from scaling laws recently applied to the extraction of critical exponents for the nuclear liquid-gas phase transition from nuclear collisions.

Singular Vertices And The Triangulation Space Of The D-Sphere, Simon Catterall, G. Thorleifsson, John B. Kogut, R. Renken Dec 1995

Singular Vertices And The Triangulation Space Of The D-Sphere, Simon Catterall, G. Thorleifsson, John B. Kogut, R. Renken

Physics - All Scholarship

By a sequence of numerical experiments we demonstrate that generic triangulations of the D-sphere for D>3 contain one {\it singular} (D-3)-simplex. The mean number of elementary D-simplices sharing this simplex increases with the volume of the triangulation according to a simple power law. The lower dimension subsimplices associated with this (D-3)-simplex also show a singular behaviour. Possible consequences for the DT model of four-dimensional quantum gravity are discussed.


Nanoscale Oxide Patterns On Si (100) Surfaces, T. -C. Shen, C. Wang, J. W. Lyding, J. R. Tucker Dec 1995

Nanoscale Oxide Patterns On Si (100) Surfaces, T. -C. Shen, C. Wang, J. W. Lyding, J. R. Tucker

T. -C. Shen

Ultrathin oxide patterns of a linewidth of 50 Å have been created on Si(100)‐2×1 surfaces by a scanning tunneling microscope operating in ultrahigh vacuum. The oxide thickness is estimated to be 4–10 Å. The morphology and spectroscopy of the oxide region are obtained. Hydrogen passivation is used as an oxidation mask. The defects caused by oxidation in the passivated region before and after the hydrogen desorption are compared and discussed. The multistep silicon processings by an ultrahigh vacuum scanning tunneling micropscope is thus demonstrated.


The Spinor Representation Of Minimal Surfaces, Rob Kusner, Nick Schmitt Dec 1995

The Spinor Representation Of Minimal Surfaces, Rob Kusner, Nick Schmitt

Mathematics and Statistics Department Faculty Publication Series

The spinor representation is developed and used to investigate minimal surfaces in R^3 with embedded planar ends. The moduli spaces of planar-ended minimal spheres and real projective planes are determined, and new families of minimal tori and Klein bottles are given. These surfaces compactify in S^3 to yield surfaces critical for the M¨obius invariant squared mean curvature functional W. On the other hand, all Wcritical spheres and real projective planes arise this way. Thus we determine at the same time the moduli spaces of W-critical spheres and real projective planes via the spinor representation.


Correlations Between Auditory‐Filter Shape Parameters Measured At Proximal Center Frequencies, Marc A. Fagelson, Craig A. Champlin Dec 1995

Correlations Between Auditory‐Filter Shape Parameters Measured At Proximal Center Frequencies, Marc A. Fagelson, Craig A. Champlin

Marc A. Fagelson

Auditory‐filter shape parameters in 20 normal‐hearing listeners were determined at center frequencies (CFs) of 913, 1095, 3651, and 4382 Hz using the five‐point roex (p,r) method. Slopes of the filters’ skirts were correlated for the CFs in each frequency region at both low and high stimulus levels. In the λ=1000‐Hz region, the auditory filters’ low‐frequency slopes were significantly correlated at the low and high stimulus levels, while the high‐frequency slopes were associated at the high, but not the low level. In the λ=4000‐Hz region the relationships were clearer as the low‐frequency and high‐frequency filter skirts diverged at the low level, …

Broad Ne Viii Λ744 Emission From The Quasar Pg 1148+549, Fred Hamann, Joseph C. Shields, Gary J. Ferland, Kirk T. Korista Dec 1995

Broad Ne Viii Λ744 Emission From The Quasar Pg 1148+549, Fred Hamann, Joseph C. Shields, Gary J. Ferland, Kirk T. Korista

Physics and Astronomy Faculty Publications

We discuss the probable detection of broad Ne VIII λ774 emission from the zɛ = 0.978 quasar PG 1148+549, and we use spectral synthesis calculations to study the physical conditions in the line-forming gas. The theoretical predictions and the measured line wavelength both support Ne VIII λ774 as the most likely identification.

Our calculations show that Ne VIII λ774 forms in hotter and more highly ionized gas than previously recognized in the broad emission line region. If the gas is photoionized by a standard active galactic nucleus continuum, the observed Ne VIII equivalent width, the Ne VIII/O VI flux …


The Anomalous Mössbauer Fraction Of Ferritin And Polysaccharide Iron Complex (Pic), M. E. Y. Mohie-Eldin, Richard B. Frankel, L. Gunther, G. C. Papaefthymiou Dec 1995

The Anomalous Mössbauer Fraction Of Ferritin And Polysaccharide Iron Complex (Pic), M. E. Y. Mohie-Eldin, Richard B. Frankel, L. Gunther, G. C. Papaefthymiou

Physics

Mössbauer studies of the ubiquitous protein molecule ferritin and its synthetic "biomimic" polysaccharide iron complex (PIC) exhibit an anomaly in the Mössbauer spectrum wherein the recoil free fraction f-factor has a sharp drop with respect to temperature as the temperature rises above 30 K for mammalian ferritin and 60 K for PIC. The anomaly coincides with the disappearance of hyperfine splitting, which is due to superparamagnetic relaxation above the blocking temperature. Different absorbers were used to experimentally investigate the effect of absorber thickness on the Mössbauer spectrum. The anomaly persists for thin absorbers. Also, spectra treated with FFT procedures …

Optimal Survey Design For Community Intervention Evaluations: Cohort Or Cross-Sectional?, Paula Diehr Dec 1995

Optimal Survey Design For Community Intervention Evaluations: Cohort Or Cross-Sectional?, Paula Diehr

Paula Diehr

Community intervention evaluations that measure changes over time may conduct repeated cross-sectional surveys, follow a cohort of residents over time, or (often) use both designs. Each survey design has implications for precision and cost. To explore these issues, we assume that two waves of surveys are conducted, and that the goal is to estimate change in behavior for people who reside in the community at both times. Cohort designs are shown to provide more accurate estimates (in the sense of lower mean squared error) than cross-sectional estimates if (1) there is strong correlation over time in an individual's behavior at …
