  • Alfven wave phase-mixing and damping in the ion cyclotron range of frequencies 

    Threlfall, J.; McClements, K. G.; De Moortel, I. (2011-01) - Journal article
    Aims. We determine the effect of the Hall term in the generalised Ohm's law on the damping and phase mixing of Alfven waves in the ion cyclotron range of frequencies in uniform and non-uniform equilibrium plasmas. Methods. ...
  • Alfvén wave boundary condition for responsive magnetosphere- ionosphere coupling 

    Wright, A.N.; Russell, A.J.B. (2014-05-01) - Journal article
    The solution of electric fields and currents in a height-resolved ionosphere is traditionally solved as an elliptic equation with Dirichlet or Neumann boundary condition in which the magnetosphere is represented as an ...
  • Algebraic order and the Berezinskii-Kosterlitz-Thouless transition in an exciton-polariton gas 

    Nitsche, W.H.; Kim, N.Y.; Roumpos, G.; Schneider, C.; Kamp, M.; Höfling, S.; Forchel, A.; Yamamoto, Y. (2014-11-24) - Journal article
    We observe quasi-long-range coherence in a two-dimensional condensate of exciton-polaritons. Our measurements confirm that the spatial correlation algebraically decays with a slow power law, whose exponent quantitatively ...
  • Algeria versus the Arab Spring 

    Volpi, Frederic (2013-07) - Journal article
    What accounts for continuing authoritarian success in the Arab world today? In light of the “Arab Spring,” explanations of “authoritarian resilience” in the region clearly need to be revised. Consider the example of Algeria, ...
  • Algorithm based comparison between the integral method and harmonic analysis of the timing jitter of diode-based and solid-state pulsed laser sources 

    Metzger, N.K.; Su, C.-R.; Edwards, T.J.; Brown, C.T.A. (2015-04-15) - Journal article
    A comparison between two methods of timing jitter calculation is presented. The integral method utilizes spectral area of the single side-band (SSB) phase noise spectrum to calculate root mean square (rms) timing jitter. ...
  • Algorithm-based continuous pulse duration tuning and performance control of a mode-locked laser diode
