The present approach exploits the biomechanical connection between articulation and ingestion-related mouth movements to introduce a novel psychological principle of brand name design. We constructed brand names for diverse products with consonantal stricture spots either from the front to the rear of the mouth, thus inwards (e.g., BODIKA), or from the rear(More)
This discussion paper introduces the new program of the research unit, " Transnational Conflicts and International Institutions " (TKI) at the Social Science Research Center Berlin (WZB). The research program focuses on the developmental dynamics that were initiated with the creation of international institutions following the Second World War and which may(More)
1 I am grateful to Bernhard Wessels from whom I received stimulating critique of the main argument developed in this paper and during the process of data analysis. This gratitude extends as well to my colleagues ii Disclaimer The WZB Discussion Paper series serves to disseminate the research results of work in progress prior to publication in order to(More)
ii Disclaimer The WZB Discussion Paper series serves to disseminate the research results of work in progress prior to publication in order to encourage the exchange of ideas and academic debate. An objective of the series is to get the findings out quickly, even if the presentations are less than fully polished. Inclusion of a paper in the WZB Discussion(More)
Along a single-mode fiber a number M of grating-fiber couplers are fabricated at equal spacings L(0). The fiber is coiled so that the couplers lie side by side, forming a planar optical antenna array. With varying optical frequency the resulting radiation lobes sweep slowly along the meridional direction but fast along the orthogonal azimuthal direction. In(More)
This paper presents a concept for the virtual robot program development (VIPD) for assembly processes with industrial robots. The concept aims to the possibility to completely create and validate robot programs for assembly processes with the help of a simulation environment. VIPD provides a consistent communication platform for the cooperative work of(More)

Line narrowing in the output spectrum of a Nd-doped silica-fiber laser with spectrally flat reflectors is interpreted to indicate a substantial homogeneous contribution to the 1.09-microm fluorescent linewidth. By using a fiber Bragg reflector, frequency-stable operation with 100-GHz bandwidth is obtained, dominated by power broadening and spectral hole(More)
