    The temperature dependence of the emission measure (EM) in the core of active regions coronal loops is an important diagnostic of heating processes. Observations indicate that EM(T) ~ T a below approximately 4 MK, with 2 < ...
  • Active slow light in silicon photonic crystals : tunable delay and Raman gain 

    Rey, Isabella H. (University of St Andrews, 2012-11-30) - Thesis
    In the past decade, great research effort was inspired by the need to realise active optical functionalities in silicon, in order to develop the full potential of silicon as a photonic platform. In this thesis we explore ...
  • An active-architecture approach to COTS integration

    Commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) software products are increasingly used as standard components within integrated information systems. This creates challenges since both their developers and source code are not usually ...
  • Activism, arenas and accounts in conflicts over tobacco control 

    Thomson, Ian; Dey, Colin; Russell, Shona Louise (2015) - Journal article

  • Activity and magnetic field structure of the Sun-like planet-hosting star HD 1237 

    Alvarado-Gómez, J.D.; Hussain, Gaitee; Grunhut, J.; Fares, Rim; Donati, J.-F.; Alecian, E.; Kochukhov, O.; Oksala, M.; Morin, J.; Redfield, S.; Cohen, O.; Drake, J.J.; Jardine, Moira; Matt, S.; Petit, P.; Walter, F.M. (2015-10) - Journal article
    We analyse the magnetic activity characteristics of the planet-hosting Sun-like star, HD 1237, using HARPS spectro-polarimetric time-series data. We find evidence of rotational modulation of the magnetic longitudinal field ...
  • The activity of amyloid beta binding alcohol dehydrogenase in Alzheimer's disease 

    Allen, Zoe Eleanor (2012-11-30) - Thesis
    The mitochondria are a vibrant hub for many problems that occur in Alzheimer’s disease. The enzyme amyloid-ß binding alcohol dehydrogenase (ABAD) and Cyclophilin D (CypD) are two key mitochondrial proteins that have ...
  • The activity of human rhinovirus 14 3C protease in artificial polyproteins 

    Byrne, Emma Jane (University of St Andrews, 1999) - Thesis
    HRV14 3C acts as a protease and has a role in RNA replication in vivo, interacting with a cloverleaf structure in picornaviral genomic RNA. Picornaviral 3C proteases are able to cleave both N- and C-terminally producing ...
  • Activity profiles and hook-tool use of New Caledonian crows recorded by bird-borne video cameras 

    Troscianko, Jolyon; Rutz, Christian (2015-12-23) - Journal article
    New Caledonian crows are renowned for their unusually sophisticated tool behaviour. Despite decades of fieldwork, however, very little is known about how they make and use their foraging tools in the wild, which is largely ...
  • Activity seascapes highlight central place foraging strategies in marine predators that never stop swimming 

    Papastamatiou, Yannis; Watanabe, Yuuki; Demsar, Urska; Leos-Barajas, Vianey; Bradley, Darcy; Langrock, Roland; Weng, Kevin; Lowe, Christopher; Friedlander, Alan; Caselle, Jennifer (2018-06-21) - Journal article
