  • Building a geochemical view of microbial salt tolerance : halophilic adaptation of Marinococcus in a natural magnesium sulfate brine 

    Fox-Powell, Mark G.; Cockell, Charles S. (2018-04-16) - Journal article
    Current knowledge of life in hypersaline habitats is mostly limited to sodium and chloride-dominated environments. This narrow compositional window does not reflect the diversity of brine environments that exist naturally ...
  • Building careers, managing capitals 

    Flynn, Emma (University of St Andrews, 2015-06) - Thesis
    I sought to find out whether this was a tension between artistic and commercial in the career of visual artists, and if so, how this tension was managed. In attempting to uncover information which could address the ...
  • Building complex systems based on simple molecular architectures 

    Robertson, Craig Collumbine (University of St Andrews, 2011-11-30) - Thesis
    Over the past twenty years molecules capable of templating their own synthesis, so called self–replicating molecules have gained prominence in the literature. We show herein that mixing the reagents for replicating molecules ...

    Across one longitudinal and two cross-sectional surveys in Northern Ireland, we tested a model of intergroup relations in which out-group attitudes and behavioral tendencies are predicted by cross-group friendship and ...
  • Bulk AlInAs on InP(111) as a novel material system for pure single photon emission 

    Unsleber, Sebastian; Deppisch, Michael; Krammel, Christian M.; Vo, Minh; Yerino, Christopher D.; Simmonds, Paul J.; Lee, Minjoo Larry; Koenraad, Paul M.; Schneider, Christian; Hoefling, Sven (2016-10-03) - Journal article
    In this letter, we report on quantum light emission from bulk AlInAs grown on InP(111) substrates. We observe indium rich clusters in the bulk Al0:48In0:52As (AlInAs), resulting in quantum dot-like energetic traps for ...
