We demonstrate what we believe to be the first experimental observation of self-trapping and self-deflection of a planar optical beam by the photorefractive effect in a semiconductor. The semiconductor material is indium phosphide doped with iron. We show that the observed focusing and defocusing effects follow the component of the two-wave-mixing space(More)
Molecular dynamics simulation was used to study a model colloidal suspension with two species of slightly different sized colloidal particles in an explicit solvent. In this work we calculated the four interdiffusion coefficients for the ternary system, which were then used to calculate the decay coefficients D_{±} of the two independent diffusive modes. We(More)
Heart Lake, a small dimictic lake in Southern Ontario shows classical characteristics of eutrophy: high phytoplankton populations, blooms of blue-greens, predominently Aphanizomenon flos-aquae, in summer, a shallow photic zone decreasing seasonally in response to dense phytoplankton crops and a hypolomnion which is deoxygenated from early summer to fall(More)
A model was developed to estimate total suspended solids (TSS) removal in the Stormceptor, an oil/sediment separator. The model was based on a commonly used continuous simulation model (USEPA SWMM) for hydrological processes. The suspended solids’ loading was estimated using build-up and wash-off equations. The solids were assumed to be distributed into(More)
Molecular dynamics simulation was used to study a model colloidal suspension at a range of packing fractions from the dilute limit up to the freezing point. This study builds on previous work by the authors which modeled the colloidal particles with a hard core surrounded by a Weeks-Chandler-Anderson potential with modified interaction parameters, and(More)
