  • Evidence of guided resonances in photonic quasicrystal slabs 

    Ricciardi, Armando; Pisco, Marco; Cutolo, Antonello; Cusano, Andrea; O'Faolain, Liam; Krauss, Thomas F.; Castaldi, Giuseppe; Galdi, Vincenzo (2011-08-29) - Journal article
    We report on the experimental evidence of Fano-type guided resonances (GRs) in aperiodically-ordered photonic quasicrystal slabs. With specific reference to the Ammann-Beenker (8-fold symmetric, quasiperiodic) octagonal ...
  • Fitting models of multiple-hypotheses to partial population data : investigating the causes of cycles in red grouse 

    New, L; Matthiopoulos, Jason; Redpath, S; Buckland, Stephen Terrence (2009-09) - Journal article
    There are two postulated causes for the observed periodic fluctuations (cycles) in red grouse (Lagopus lagopus scoticus). The first involves interaction with the parasitic nematode Trichostrongylus tenuis. The second invokes ...
  • GPU accelerated toolbox for real-time beam-shaping in multimode fibres 

    Ploeschner, M.; Straka, B.; Dholakia, K.; Cizmar, T. (2014-02-10) - Journal article
    We present a GPU accelerated toolbox for shaping the light propagation through multimode fibre using a spatial light modulator (SLM). The light is modulated before being coupled to the proximal end of the fibre in order ...
  • Multimode fibre : light-sheet microscopy at the tip of a needle 

    Plöschner, Martin; Kollárová, Věra; Dostál, Zbyněk; Nylk, Jonathan; Barton-Owen, Thomas; Ferrier, David E. K.; Chmelík, Radim; Dholakia, Kishan; Čižmár, Tomáš (2015-12-14) - Journal article
    Light-sheet fluorescence microscopy has emerged as a powerful platform for 3-D volumetric imaging in the life sciences. Here, we introduce an important step towards its use deep inside biological tissue. Our new technique, ...
  • Predicting the vulnerability of great apes to disease : the role of superspreaders and their potential vaccination 

    Carne, Charlotte; Semple, Stuart; Morrogh-Bernard, Helen; Zuberbuehler, Klaus; Lehmann, Julia (2013-12-27) - Journal article
    Disease is a major concern for the conservation of great apes, and one that is likely to become increasingly relevant as deforestation and the rise of ecotourism bring humans and apes into ever closer proximity. Consequently, ...
  • Prestige affects cultural learning in chimpanzees 

    Horner, Victoria; Proctor, Darby; Bonnie, Kristin E.; Whiten, Andrew; de Waal, Frans B. M. (2010-05-19) - Journal article
    Humans follow the example of prestigious, high-status individuals much more readily than that of others, such as when we copy the behavior of village elders, community leaders, or celebrities. This tendency has been declared ...
  • Radiation pressure on a moving body : beyond the Doppler effect 

    Horsley, S. A. R.; Artoni, M.; La Rocca, G. C. (2012-11) - Journal article
    The dependence of macroscopic radiation pressure on the velocity of the object being pushed is commonly attributed to the Doppler effect. This need not be the case, and here we highlight velocity-dependent radiation pressure ...
  • Synchrony and motor mimicking in chimpanzee observational learning 

    Fuhrmann, Delia; Ravignani, Andrea; Marshall-Pescini, Sarah; Whiten, Andrew (2014-06-13) - Journal article
    Cumulative tool-based culture underwrote our species' evolutionary success, and tool-based nut-cracking is one of the strongest candidates for cultural transmission in our closest relatives, chimpanzees. However the social ...
  • Untrained  chimpanzees (Pan troglodytes schweinfurthii) fail to imitate novel actions 

    Tennie, Claudio; Call, Josep; Tomasello, Michael (2012-08-08) - Journal article
    Background: Social learning research in apes has focused on social learning in the technical (problem solving) domain - an approach that confounds action and physical information. Successful subjects in such studies may ...
  • Wild chimpanzees rely on cultural knowledge to solve an experimental honey acquisition task 

    Gruber, Thibaud; Muller, Martin N.; Strimling, Pontus; Wrangham, Richard; Zuberbuehler, Klaus (2009-11-17) - Journal article
    Population and group-specific behavioral differences have been taken as evidence for animal cultures [1-10], a notion that remains controversial. Skeptics argue that ecological or genetic factors, rather than social learning, ...
