We would like to draw the reader's attention to two errors which appeared in the text of this paper when referring to references Pfeffer and Zawadzki, 1 and Engels et al. 2 These errors are as follows: In the 4th line of the abstract, 2nd line of Sec. II ͑p. 3͒, and 32nd line of p. 8, references to " Deng et al. " should read " Pfeffer and Zawadzki. " In(More)
The Francis Scale of Attitude toward Alcohol was completed by 324 adolescents (M= 17.1 yr., SD=3.6) in Northern Ireland to examine reliability of the measure among this age group. These data support its internal consistency (.89) and suggest that the Francis Scale of Attitude toward Alcohol is psychometrically appropriate for use among this age group.
To replicate the 1999 work of Francis and Fearn, 360 religious studies students between the ages of 16 and 18 years completed the abbreviated Revised Eysenck Personality Questionnaire and the Francis Scale of Attitude toward Christianity. Analysis confirmed the results of Francis and Fearn and supported the general finding that scores on Psychoticism (r(More)
A strand of Leslie J Francis' research has maintained an interest in the area of attitudes toward alcohol and substances, and the role of religion in shaping attitude in these areas. The Francis Scale of Attitude toward Alcohol has become a recognised instrument in this field. The relationship between Eysenck's personality factors and attitude towards(More)
We report the optical measurement of the spin dynamics at elevated temperatures and in zero magnetic field for two types of degenerately doped n-InSb quantum wells (QWs), one asymmetric (sample A) and one symmetric (sample B) with regards to the electrostatic potential across the QW. Making use of three directly determined experimental parameters: the spin(More)
We present high-field magnetotransport data from a range of 30-nm-wide InSb/InAlSb quantum wells with room-temperature mobilities in excess of 6 m 2 V −1 s −1. Samples with the narrowest Landau level broadening exhibit beating patterns in the magnetoresistance attributed to zero-field spin splitting. Rashba parameters are extracted from a range of samples(More)
The spin-orbit ͑SO͒ coupling parameters for the lowest conduction subband due to structural inversion asymmetry ͑SIA͒ and bulk inversion asymmetry ͑BIA͒ are calculated for a range of carrier densities in ͓001͔-grown ␦-doped n-type InSb/ In 1−x Al x Sb quantum wells using the established eight-band k · p formalism ͓J.
