The high-energy density behavior of carbon, particularly in the vicinity of the melt boundary, is of broad scientific interest and of particular interest to those studying planetary astrophysics and inertial confinement fusion. Previous experimental data in the several hundred gigapascal pressure range, particularly near the melt boundary, have only been(More)
Thyrotropin-releasing hormone (TRH)-containing neurons have been implicated in the central control of body temperature. TRH-containing neurons are located in brain areas known to influence body temperature, and TRH injected into these areas can produce changes in body temperature. While these lines of evidence support the view that central TRH is involved(More)
Photonic Doppler velocimetry (PDV) has rapidly become a standard diagnostic for measuring velocities in dynamic compression research. While free surface velocity measurements are fairly straightforward, complications occur when PDV is used to measure a dynamically loaded sample through a window. Fresnel reflections can severely affect the velocity and time(More)
While photonic Doppler velocimetry (PDV) is becoming a common diagnostic in dynamic compression research, its limiting accuracy and precision are not well understood. Velocity resolution is known to be inversely proportional to the time resolution, but resolution estimates differ by one to two orders of magnitude. Furthermore, resolution varies with the(More)
