The acceleration of energetic electrons has long been one of the most outstanding problems in astrophysics and space physics, and some recent observations from space satellites show that low-frequency electromagnetic fluctuations in the auroral ionosphere and magnetosphere can often be identified as the kinetic Alfvén modes. A model of nonlinear kinetic(More)
We have developed a rapid assay for single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) detection that utilizes electronic circuitry on silicon microchips. The method was validated by the accurate discrimination of blinded DNA samples for the complex quadra-allelic SNP of mannose binding protein. The microchip directed the transport, concentration, and attachment of(More)
We study the thermal activation problem of a bistable system driven by correlated additive and multiplicative noises by means of numerical simulation. We find that in the colored noise case the suppression effect of the positive correlation decreases and finally is released as the autocorrelation time tau of the colored noise grows. When tau is large(More)
Including the ion-gyroradius effect, a general low-frequency kinetic dispersion equation is presented, which simultaneously takes account of a field-aligned current and temperature anisotropy in plasmas. Based on this dispersion equation, kinetic Alfvén wave (KAW) instability driven by the field-aligned current, which is carried by the field-aligned drift(More)
We have made an extensive theoretical exploration of gas-phase N-alkylamino cation affinities (NAAMCA), including amino cation affinities (AMCA) and N-dimethylamino cation affinities (NDMAMCA), of neutral main-group element hydrides of groups 15-17 and periods 2-4 in the periodic table by using the G2(+)M method. Some similarities and differences are found(More)
