    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, ...

    Many nearby main-sequence stars have been searched for debris using the far-infrared Herschel satellite, within the DEBRIS, DUNES and Guaranteed-Time Key Projects. We discuss here 11 stars of spectral types A–M where the ...
  • All aboard? 

    Franz, Kevin (St Mary's College, University of St Andrews, 2006-12-01) - Journal article
    Kevin Franz’s paper puts forward two fundamental approaches for ecumencial engagement in Scotland: restoration, that is, seeking by a process of healing to restore what has been lost; and exploration, asking what the ...
  • All across the circle : using auto-ordering to improve object transfer between mobile devices 

    Li, Chengzhao; Gutwin, Carl; Stanley, Kevin; Nacenta, Miguel (Canadian Human-Computer Communications Society, 2016-06-01) - Conference item
    People frequently form small groups in many social and professional situations: from conference attendees meeting at a coffee break, to siblings gathering at a family barbecue. These ad-hoc gatherings typically form into ...
  • "All of you are one" : the social vision of Gal 3:28, 1 Cor 12:13 and Col 3:11 

    Hansen, Bruce (University of St Andrews, 2007-11-30) - Thesis
    Paul's citation of an early baptismal tradition in Gal 3:28, 1 Cor 12:13 and Col 3:11 is as notable for its prominence in the Pauline corpus as it is for its ambiguity. A survey of the variety of views as to what Paul is ...
  • All-cis 1,2,3,4,5,6-hexafluorocyclohexane is a facially polarised cyclohexane 

    Keddie, Neil Steven; Slawin, Alexandra Martha Zoya; Lebl, Tomas; Philp, Douglas; O'Hagan, David (2015-04) - Journal article
    The highest-energy stereoisomer of 1,2,3,4,5,6-hexafluorocyclohexane, in which all of the fluorines are ‘up’, is prepared in a 12-step protocol. The molecule adopts a classic chair conformation with alternate C–F bonds ...
