Agar is a biological polymer, frequently used in tissue engineering research; due to its consistency, controllable size, and concentration-based properties, it often serves as a representative material for actual biological tissues. In this study, nanoindentation was used to characterize both the time-independent and time-dependent response of agar samples(More)
We investigated the orbital and antiferromagnetic ordering behaviors of the half-doped bilayer manganite La(2-2x)Sr(1+2x)Mn2O7 (x ≃ 0.5) by using Mn L(2,3)-edge resonant soft x-ray scattering. Resonant soft x-ray scattering reveals the CE-type orbital order below T(oo) ≃ 220  K, which shows partial melting behavior below T(m) ≃ 165  K. We also found(More)
We present an unreported magnetic configuration in epitaxial La(1-x) Sr(x) MnO3 (x ∼ 0.3) (LSMO) films grown on strontium titanate (STO). X-ray magnetic circular dichroism indicates that the remanent magnetic state of thick LSMO films is opposite to the direction of the applied magnetic field. Spectroscopic and scattering measurements reveal that the(More)
Resonant x-ray diffraction performed at the L(II) and L(III) absorption edges of Ru has been used to investigate the magnetic and orbital ordering in Ca2RuO4 single crystals. A large resonant enhancement due to electric dipole 2p-->4d transitions is observed at the wave-vector characteristic of antiferromagnetic ordering. Besides the previously known(More)
The question of how bulk electronic order is terminated at a surface is an intriguing one, and one with possible practical implications--for example in nanoscaled systems that may be characterized by their surface behaviour. One example of such order is orbital order, and in principle it should be possible to probe the termination of this order with surface(More)

Each year in the US three divers, on average, perish inside flooded caves and their remains require recovery. Recovery is a hazardous undertaking often performed by members of the International Underwater Cave Rescue and Recovery (IUCRR) team, in collaboration with local law enforcement and medical examiners/coroners. Since forming in 1999 the IUCRR have(More)
