Fractal analysis of Pollock's drip paintings
Scientific objectivity proves to be an essential tool for determining the fundamental content of the abstract paintings produced by Jackson Pollock in the late 1940s. Pollock dripped paint from a canExpand
Authenticating Pollock paintings using fractal geometry
A fractal analysis of Pollock's patterns is presented and its potential for authenticity research is discussed, triggering discussions that attributation procedures featuring subjective visual assessments should be complimented by quantitative scientific procedures. Expand

This review reports on experimental studies of fractionally quantised plateaus in semiconductor quantum point contacts and quantum wires, focusing on the 0.7 × 2e(2)/h conductance anomaly, its analogues at higher conductances and the zero-bias peak observed in the dc source-drain bias for conductances less than 1e( 2)/h.

A conducting polymer with enhanced electronic stability applied in cardiac models
Ex vivo experiments revealed that the conductive nature of the patch has an immediate effect on the electrophysiology of the heart, and set the foundation for the design of electronically stable CP-based scaffolds. Expand
The Construction of Jackson Pollock's Fractal Drip Paintings
Between 1943 and 1952, Jackson Pollock created patterns by dripping paint onto horizontal canvases. In 1999 the authors identified the patterns as fractal. Ending 50 years of debate over the contentExpand
Seeing shapes in seemingly random spatial patterns: Fractal analysis of Rorschach inkblots
The relationship between the spatial scaling parameters of the inkblot patterns and the number of induced associations is analyzed, and it is suggested that the perceived images are induced by the fractal characteristics of the blot edges. Expand
The influence of environmental coupling on phase breaking in open quantum dots
Abstract Studies of the phase breaking time in open quantum dots reveal a value of the order of a few tens of picoseconds at low resistances, which increases by as much as one order of magnitude asExpand
Superconductivity in metal-mixed ion-implanted polymer films
Ion implantation of normally insulating polymers offers an alternative to depositing conjugated organics onto plastic films to make electronic circuits. We used a 50keV nitrogen ion beam to mix aExpand
Nanopore blockade sensors for ultrasensitive detection of proteins in complex biological samples
The ‘magnetic nanoparticle, nanopore blockade’ concept points towards a strategy to improving nanopore biosensors for quantitative analysis of various protein and nucleic acid species. Expand
Realizing lateral wrap-gated nanowire FETs: controlling gate length with chemistry rather than lithography.
This work reports a method for producing laterally oriented wrap-gated nanowire field-effect transistors that provides exquisite control over the gate length via a single wet etch step, eliminating the need for additional lithography beyond that required to define the source/drain contacts and gate lead.
