Dynamics of Barred Galaxies
Some 30% of disc galaxies have a pronounced central bar features in the disc plane and many more have weaker features of a similar kind. Kinematic data indicate that the bar constitutes a majorExpand

High-sensitivity measurements of the cosmic microwave background power spectrum with the extended Very Small Array
We present deep Ka-band (ν ≈ 33 GHz) observations of the cosmic microwave background (CMB) made with the extended Very Small Array (VSA). This configuration produces a naturally weighted synthesizedExpand

Planck pre-launch status: Expected LFI polarisation capability
We present a system-level description of the Low Frequency Instrument (LFI) considered as a differencing polarimeter, and evaluate its expected performance. The LFI is one of the two instruments onExpand

Proton relaxation studies of water in concentrated dimyristoyllecithin—water systems
Abstract Proton relaxation studies have been performed on concentrated dimyristoyl-lecithin-water samples as a function of temperature. Both T 1 and T 2 data indicate a sharp increase in the mobilityExpand
