This article presents the evaluation process for the ZIG-ZAIDS game, investigating the material's applicability in formal and informal educational contexts, i.e., how the game has been used by health professionals, parents, and the target population (pre-adolescents, or children over 9 years old). The study involved evaluation questionnaires sent to a list(More)
1. Abstract In every antenna of the ALMA array, the digitizers will deliver 3-bit (or more) samples at the rate of 4 Gigasamples per second. Data is not practical to handle at this speed and needs to be converted to a lower frequency by means of serial-to-parallel conversion. To solve this problem the telecomm industry has developed fast "mux/demux" chips,(More)
A comparative study of the adsorption of an O2 molecule on pure Au(n+1)+ and doped MAu(n)+ cationic gold clusters for n = 3-7 and M = Ti, Fe is presented. The simultaneous adsorption of two oxygen atoms also was studied. This work was performed by means of first principles calculations based on norm-conserving pseudo-potentials and numerical basis sets. For(More)
Using the generalized gradient approximation (GGA) to density functional theory (DFT), we compute the electronic structure and related magnetic properties of free-standing Co(12-x)Cu(x) clusters (x = 0-12) with structures resulting from the optimization of those of the low-lying energy isomers of pure Co(12) and Cu(12) in which Co(Cu) were replaced by(More)
Recently, Ar physisorption was used as a structural probe for the location of the Ti dopant atom in aluminium cluster cations, Al(n)Ti(+) [Lang et al., J. Am. Soc. Mass Spectrom. 22, 1508 (2011)]. As an experiment result, the lack of Ar complexes for n > nc determines the cluster size for which the Ti atom is located inside of an Al cage. To elucidate the(More)
Downsizing to the nanoscale has opened up a spectrum of new magnetic phenomena yet to be discovered. In this context, we investigate the magnetic properties of Ni clusters embedded in a metallic Ag matrix. Unlike in Ni free-standing clusters, where the magnetic moment increases towards the atomic value when decreasing the cluster size, we show, by tuning(More)
