    Bailey, R.L.; Helling, Christiane; Hodosán, G.; Bilger, C.; Stark, C.R. (2014-03-20) - Journal article
    Mineral clouds in substellar atmospheres play a special role as a catalyst for a variety of charge processes. If clouds are charged, the surrounding environment becomes electrically activated, and ensembles of charged ...

    A very compact explosive vapor sensor is demonstrated based on a distributed feedback polymer laser pumped by a commercial InGaN light-emitting diode. The laser shows a two-stage turn on of the laser emission, for pulsed ...
  • A longitudinal study of migration propensities for mixed-ethnic unions in England and Wales 

    Feng, Z.; van Ham, M.; Boyle, P.; Raab, G.M. (2013) - Journal article
    Most studies investigating residential segregation of ethnic minorities ignore the fact that the majority of adults live in couples. In recent years there has been a growth in the number of mixed-ethnic unions that involve ...
  • The magnetosphere of the close accreting PMS binary V4046 Sgr 

    Gregory, S.G.; Holzwarth, V.R.; Donati, J.-F.; Hussain, G.A.J.; Montmerle, T.; Alecian, E.; Alencar, S.H.P.; Argiroffi, C.; Audard, M.; Bouvier, J.; Damiani, F.; Güdel, M.; Huenemoerder, D.P.; Kastner, J.H.; Maggio, A.; Sacco, G.G.; Wade, G.A. (2014-01-08) - Journal article
    V4046 Sagittarii AB is a close short-period classical T Tauri binary. It is a circularised and synchronised system accreting from a circumbinary disk. In 2009 it was observed as part of a coordinated program involving ...
  • Metabolic rate and body size are linked with perception of temporal information 

    Healy, K.; McNally, L.; Ruxton, G.D.; Cooper, N.; Jackson, A.L. (2013-10-01) - Journal article
    Body size and metabolic rate both fundamentally constrain how species interact with their environment, and hence ultimately affect their niche. While many mechanisms leading to these constraints have been explored, their ...
  • Monolayer to MTS : using SEM, HIM, TEM and SERS to compare morphology, nanosensor uptake and redox potential in MCF7 cells 

    Jamieson, L.E.; Bell, A.P.; Harrison, D.J.; Campbell, C.J. (SPIE, 2015-06-19) - Conference item
    Cellular redox potential is important for the control and regulation of a vast number of processes occurring in cells. When the fine redox potential balance within cells is disturbed it can have serious consequences such ...
  • Neighbourhood selection of non-Western ethnic minorities : testing the own-group effects hypothesis using a conditional logit model 

    Boschman, S.; Van Ham, Maarten (2015-05-26) - Journal article
    The selective inflow and outflow of residents of different ethnic groups is the main mechanism behind ethnic residential segregation. In many studies it has been found that ethnic minorities are more likely than others to ...
  • Nitrosopersulfide (SSNO) accounts for sustained NO bioactivity of S-nitrosothiols following reaction with sulfide 

    Cortese-Krott, M.M.; Fernandez, B.O.; Santos, J.L.T.; Mergia, E.; Grman, M.; Nagy, P.; Kelm, M.; Butler, A.; Feelisch, M. (2014-01) - Journal article
    Sulfide salts are known to promote the release of nitric oxide (NO) from S-nitrosothiols and potentiate their vasorelaxant activity, but much of the cross-talk between hydrogen sulfide and NO is believed to occur via ...
  • Paper vs. tablets : The effect of document media in co-located collaborative work 

    Haber, J.; Nacenta, M.A.; Carpendale, S. (ACM Press - Association for Computing Machinery, 2014-05-27) - Conference item
    With new computer technologies portable devices are rapidly approaching the dimensions and characteristics of traditional pen and paper-based tools. Text and graphic documents are now commonly viewed using small tablet ...
  • Practical modes of presentation 

    Glick, E. (2015-09) - Journal article
    The Intellectualist thesis that know-how is a kind of propositional knowledge faces a simple problem: For any proposition p, it seems that one could know p without knowing how to do the activity in question. For example, ...
  • Pressure study of nematicity and quantum criticality in Sr3Ru2O7 for an in-plane field 

    Sun, D.; Wu, W.; Grigera, S.A.; Perry, R.S.; Mackenzie, A.P.; Julian, S.R. (2013-12-27) - Journal article
    We study the relationship between the nematic phases of Sr3Ru2O7 and quantum criticality. At ambient pressure, one nematic phase is associated with a metamagnetic quantum critical end point (QCEP) when the applied magnetic ...

  • Research information meets research data management ... in the library? 

    Clements, Anna (2013-11) - Journal article
    Research data management (RDM) is a major priority for many institutions as they struggle to cope with the plethora of pronouncements including funder policies, a G8 statement, REF2020 consultations, all stressing the ...
  • Shallow-water vortex equilibria and their stability 

    Płotka, H.; Dritschel, D.G. (2011-01-01) - Journal article

  • Shared identity predicts enhanced health at a mass gathering 

    Khan, S.S.; Hopkins, N.; Reicher, S.; Tewari, S.; Srinivasan, N.; Stevenson, C. (2015-07-19) - Journal article
    Identifying with a group can impact (positively) upon group members’ health. This can be explained (in part) through the social relations that a shared identity allows. We investigated the relationship between a shared ...

    Campo Jr., V.L.; Capelle, K.; Hooley, Chris; Quintanilla, J.; Scarola, V.W. (2012-03-29) - Journal article
    We show that, for fermionic atoms in a one-dimensional optical lattice, the fraction of atoms in doubly occupied sites is a highly nonmonotonic function of temperature. We demonstrate that this property persists even in ...
