We present scalable large area terahertz (THz) emitters based on a nanoscale multilayer InGaAs/InAlAs heterostructure and a microstructured electrode pattern. The emitters are designed for pump lasers working at the telecommunication wavelength of 1.55 μm. Electric THz fields of more than 2.5 V cm⁻¹ are reached with moderate pump powers of 80 mW, the(More)
Conventional adhesives show a decrease in the adhesion force with increasing temperature due to thermally induced viscoelastic thinning and/or structural decomposition. Here, we report the counter-intuitive behaviour of carbon nanotube (CNT) dry adhesives that show a temperature-enhanced adhesion strength by over six-fold up to 143 N cm-2 (4 mm × 4 mm),(More)
A naturally occurring split intein from the dnaE gene of Synechocystis sp. PCC6803 (Ssp DnaE intein) has been purified and crystallized using PEG 8K as precipitant. The crystal belongs to space group P3(1)21 or P3(2)21, with unit-cell parameters a = b = 58.5, c = 70.2 A. It has one molecule per asymmetric unit and diffracts to beyond 2.9 A under(More)
A 154-residue mini-intein from the dnaB gene of Synechocystis sp. PCC 6803 (Ssp DnaB intein) has been purified and crystallized using PEG 4000 as a precipitant. The crystal belongs to space group P3(1)21 or P3(2)21, with unit-cell parameters a = b = 58.2, c = 70.3 A. It has one molecule per asymmetric unit and diffracts to beyond 2.0 A under cryoconditions(More)
A numerical case study is presented, which investigates the performance of embedded integral bridge abutments and the maximum magnitude and distribution of earth pressure within the retained soil. The Three Surface Kinematic Hardening model is adopted in the numerical analysis, which successfully reproduced key features of soil behaviour under small strain(More)
