A new high-speed valve-based modulator has been designed and tested for use in comprehensive two-dimensional gas chromatography (GC×GC). The modulator is a Deans switch constructed from two micro-volume fittings and a solenoid valve. Modulator performance was characterized over a wide range of device settings including the magnitude of the switching flow,(More)
Army millimeter wave radar systems designers impose ever-increasing restrictions on tube volume, weight, and cost while at the same time requiring improved tube life and reliability. The bulkiest portion of a millimeter wave tube is comprised of the thermionic electron gun and the beam focusing magnet. The thermionic electron gun is often the source of tube(More)
The GC×GC solvation parameter model has been used to identify effective stationary phases for the separation of fatty acid methyl esters (FAMEs) from petroleum hydrocarbons. This simple mathematical model was used to screen the 1225 different combinations of 50 stationary phases. The most promising pairs combined a poly(methyltrifluoropropylsiloxane)(More)
Daily rainfall occurrence and amount at 11 stations over North Queensland are examined during summer 1958–1998, using a Hidden Markov Model (HMM). Daily rainfall variability is described in terms of the occurrence of five discrete “weather states,” identified by the HMM. Three states are characterized respectively by very wet, moderately wet, and dry(More)
