We have recently used stimulated-Raman transitions in the resolved sideband regime to cool single ions to the n = 0 zero-point energy. This has allowed realizations of the Jaynes-Cummings model interaction for atomic motion and a quantum controlled-NOT gate applicable to a quantum computer. Bragg scattering has revealed long-range order in a sample of = l@(More)
Detailed analysis of (131)I levels in rainwater and in three species of seaweed (Fucus distichus Linnaeus, Macrocystis pyrifera, and Pyropia fallax) collected in southwest British Columbia and Bella Bella, B.C., Canada was performed using gamma-ray spectroscopy following the Fukushima nuclear power plant accident on March 11, 2011. Maximum (131)I activity(More)
HYPOTHESIS Mixed solutions of cationic and anionic surfactants show considerable synergism in their wetting behaviour, but their spreading is affected considerably by the phase separation processes. The valuable information about wetting properties of synergetic mixtures can be obtained by using mixtures in which phase separation occurs at concentrations(More)
Owing to a 15% attack rate of Pneumocystis carinii pneumonitis (PCP) among the leukemic population of Riley Hospital, Indianapolis, a two-year study using continuous low-dosage sulfamethoxazole-trimethoprim to prevent PCP was started in January 1977. A total of 229 pediatric cancer patients considered at high risk for getting PCP received prophylaxis, while(More)
Within the dental hospital setting, it is a frequent occurrence to find residual cement contaminating instruments in a newly opened kit having undergone the decontamination cycle. Any instrument found to be contaminated then cannot be used, as the area underneath the cement is not sterile. This in itself has several repercussions. These include:(More)
