This paper describes an educational analysis of a first year physics experiment on standing waves for engineering students. The educational analysis is based on the ACELL (Advancing Chemistry by Enhancing Learning in the ...
When nanorods of Au, Ag and some other elements are aligned with a preferred orientation with respect to light, their optical extinction characteristics become dependent on the polarization and angle of incidence of the ...
Cylindrical single grains of Gd Ba2 Cu3 Oy (Gd-123) with a diameter of 25 mm were successfully fabricated by melt-texture growth (MTG) process in air to study the influence of different starting powders on flux pinning. ...
The sensitivity is the most important parameter in the sensing field. Effort was made to study the effect of gold coating on the sensitivity of rhombic silver nanostructure array through numerical simulation using the ...
Textured silicon surfaces are widely used in manufacturing of solar cells due to increasing the light absorption probability and also the antireflection properties. However, these Si surfaces have a high density of surface ...
ABSTRACT The uniaxial stress dependence of the band structure and the exciton-polariton transitions in wurtzite ZnO is thoroughly studied using modern first-principles calculations based on the HSE+G0W0 approach, k p ...
We prove that sufficiently many copies of a bipartite entangled pure state can always be transformed into some copies of another one with certainty by local quantum operations and classical communication. The efficiency ...
We present computational techniques to compute in an efficient way optical forces on arbitrary nanoobjects using the coupled dipole method. We show how the time of computation can be reduced by several orders of magnitude ...
We consider the problem of elastic waves propagating in a two-dimensional array of circular cavities, taking rigorous account of coupling between shear and dilational waves. A technique, originally due to Rayleigh, is ...
A mathematical model has been constructed to describe elastic waves propagating in a twodimensional solid containing a doubly periodic parallelogram array of circular holes. A multipole expansion method is employed which ...
We study electromagnetic forces and torques on a discrete spherical invisibility cloak under time-harmonic illumination. We consider the influence of material absorption and losses, and we show that while the impact of ...
The electronic structure of potassium-doped La@ C82 has been studied with synchrotron-radiation photoelectron spectroscopy. Ultraviolet photoemission measurements indicate evolution of the valence-band states of La@ C82 ...
Ultraviolet photoelectron spectra (UPS) of Y@C-82 have been measured with a synchrotron light source. UPS spectra reveal the photoelectron onset at 0.3 eV below the Fermi level, indicating the semiconducting nature of the ...
