An ice nucleus counter was developed and constructed to enable investigation of potential ice nucleating materials. The Manchester Ice Nucleus Chamber (MINC) is a concentric-cylinder continuous flow diffusion chamber (CFDC). A full explanation of the MINC instrument is given here, along with first results and a comparison to an established instrument of(More)
The state of optical polarization of He-Ne laser light diffracted by single skinned frog skeletal muscle fibers has been determined after decoration of the thin filaments of rigor fibers with exogenous S-1. Light on the first diffraction order was analyzed using optical ellipsometry for changes occurring in total birefringence (delta nT) and total(More)
BACKGROUND There is evidence from observational studies that whole grains can have a beneficial effect on risk for cardiovascular disease (CVD). Earlier versions of this review found mainly short-term intervention studies. There are now longer-term randomised controlled trials (RCTs) available. This is an update and expansion of the original review(More)
