Thompson scattering of cosmic microwave background (CMB) photons off of free electrons during the reionization epoch induces a correlation between the distribution of galaxies and the polarization pattern of the CMB, the magnitude of which is proportional to the quadrupole moment of radiation at the time of scattering. Since the quadrupole moment generated(More)
A solvatochromic study on the photophysical properties of two cationic oxazine dyes (brilliant cresyl blue and nile blue) was carried out. The electronic absorption and emission spectra of the dyes were recorded in various organic solvents with different polarity. The ground and the excited state dipole moments of the dyes were estimated from solvatochromic(More)
The advent of precise measurements of the CMB anisotropies has motivated correspondingly precise calculations of the cosmic recombination history. Cosmic recombination proceeds far out of equilibrium because of a ‘‘bottleneck’’ at the n 1⁄4 2 level of hydrogen: atoms can only reach the ground state via slow processes—two-photon decay or Lymanresonance(More)
High-pressure processing is finding a growing interest in the food industry. Among the advantages of this emerging process is the ability to favorably freeze and thaw food. This study aims at comparing the effect of different freezing and thawing processes on the quality of Atlantic salmon fillets. Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) samples were frozen by(More)
The merger and accretion probabilities of dark matter halos have so far only been calculated for an infinitesimal time interval. This means that a Monte-Carlo simulation with very small time steps is necessary to find the merger history of a parent halo. In this paper we use the random walk formalism to find the merger and accretion probabilities of halos(More)
