The ‘‘personal cloud’’ effect and its impact on human exposure to airborne pollutants are well documented. A great deal is also known regarding indoor air chemistry, particularly as related to ozone reactions with mono-terpenes. In this paper we hypothesize the presence of personal reactive clouds that result from ozone reactions with terpenes and(More)
We report the first observation to our knowledge of a sharp minimum in the attenuated total reflectivity of a thin metal film between index-matching layers. The resonance is due to the excitation of the long-range surface-plasmon mode on both sides of the thin metal films, as originally discussed by Sarid [Phys. Rev. Lett. 47, 1927 (1981)]. The angular(More)
Optical third harmonic generation (THG) has been observed for the first time from DNA films. The THG signal is observed from NaDNA films exposed to relative humidities (RHs) between 0% and 98%. A strong enhancement (approximately 5x) of the THG signal from NaDNA is observed at 84% RH; no enhancement is observed for RbDNA. The most likely mechanism for such(More)
We report the observation of novel interference patterns in reflected beam profiles resulting from the excitation with a focused laser beam of both the long-range surface plasmon mode and leaky waveguide modes in a prism-coupled thin-film geometry. Many new features of the observation are in good agreement with the theory; namely, the greater than unity(More)

Understanding the competitive environment of one’s company is crucial for every manager. One tool to quantify the technological relationships between companies, evaluate industry landscapes and knowledge transfer potential in collaborations is the technological distance. There are different methods and many different factors that impact the results and thus(More)

Electron scattering on stable target nuclei has been the most reliable tool to study nuclear structure. This tool will be available for the investigation of exotic nuclei at the electron-ion collider ELISe at FAIR. The ELISe facility is based on the colliding storage rings EAR and NESR for electrons and ions, respectively. The main instrument of ELISe will(More)
