Grain and grain boundary diffusion coefficients in alumina scales on FeCrAl-based ODS alloys have been determined. The boundary diffusion-coefficients have been derived by combining gravimetrically determined growth rate data with SEM and TEM analyses of the oxide scale microstructure. The diffusion coefficients determined have been used as input parameters(More)
A visual examination of the GLIMPSE images has revealed 322 partial and closed rings that we propose represent partially or fully enclosed threedimensional bubbles. We argue that the bubbles are primarily formed by hot young stars in massive star formation regions. We have found an average of about 1.5 bubbles per square degree. About 25% of the bubbles(More)
We explore the variability and cross-frequency correlation of the flux density and polarization of the blazar OJ287, using imaging at 43 GHz with the Very Long Baseline Array, as well as optical and near-infrared polarimetry. The polarization and flux density in both the optical waveband and the 43 GHz compact core increased by a small amount in late 2005,(More)
An experimental investigation of W/C, W/Ti, Ni/Ti, and Ni/V multilayers is presented that uses synchrotron radiation in the soft-x-ray energy region between 100 and 1500 eV with special emphasison the water window. The multilayers were designed as normal incidence reflectors and for polarimetry purposes around the Brewster angle. Both reflection and(More)
Mimir, a new facility-class near-infrared instrument for the 1.8 m Perkins telescope on Anderson Mesa outside Flagstaff, Arizona, was commissioned and has been operating for three years. Mimir is multifunction, performing wide-field (F=5) and narrow-field (F=17) imaging, long-slit spectroscopy, and imaging polarimetry. The F=5 mode images at 0.59′′ per(More)
The luminous, massive star formation region RCW 49, located in the southern Galactic plane, was imaged with the Infrared Array Camera (IRAC) on the Spitzer Space Telescope as part of the Galactic Legacy Infrared Mid-Plane Survey Extraordinaire (GLIMPSE) program. The IRAC bands contain polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH) features at 3.3, 6.2, 7.7, and 8.6(More)
In Spitzer/IRAC images obtained under the GLIMPSE Legacy Survey, we have identified a unique and provocative nebular object we call the ‘‘Southern Jellyfish Nebula.’’ The Southern Jellyfish Nebula is characterized by a fan of narrow tendrils with extreme length-to-width ratios that emanate from the vicinity of a bright infrared point source embedded in a(More)
Spitzer Space Telescope imaging from the Galactic Legacy Infrared Mid-Plane Survey Extraordinaire (GLIMPSE) reveals a previously unidentified low-latitude rich star cluster near l 1⁄4 31N3, b 1⁄4 0N1. Near-infrared JHK0 photometry from the Wyoming Infrared Observatory indicates an extinction of AV ’ 15 3 mag for cluster members. Analysis of CO features(More)
The effect of Si addition on the oxidation behaviour of NiCrAlY alloys in the temperature range 950 bis 1100 degrees C has been investigated. During isothermal oxidation oxide growth rates were practically independent of the Si-content. However during cyclic oxidation Si additions were beneficial. Si additions of 1-2(m)/(0) appeared to shift the onset for(More)
