The efficiency of a thermoelectric material is measured by the figure of merit ZT, which is inversely proportional to the thermal conductivity. Superlattice structures often have a reduced thermal conductivity because of the introduction of interface scattering and, therefore, improved performance. The present work is focused on the effective thermal(More)
Light microscopy applied to the domain of histopathology has traditionally been a two-dimensional imaging modality. Several authors, including the authors of this work, have extended the use of digital microscopy to three dimensions by stacking digital images of serial sections using image-based registration. In this paper, we give an overview of our(More)

This article is the first quantitative investigation of future temporal reference in spoken Hexagonal French. The two variants under examination are the inflected future (e.g. je partirai 'I will leave') and periphrastic future (e.g. je vais partir 'I am going to leave'). The present study will determine the distribution of future verb forms in Hexagonal(More)
The rubeola virus, commonly known as measles, is one of the major causes of vaccine-preventable deaths among children worldwide. This is the case despite the fact that an effective vaccine is widely available. Even in developed countries elimination efforts have fallen short as seen by recent outbreaks in Europe, which had over 30,000 cases reported in(More)
INTRODUCTION Regular cannabis use is associated with negative mental health impacts including psychosis, depression and anxiety. Rates of cannabis use have increased in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities in northern Australia within the last two decades, presenting a significant increased risk to young people's mental health in these regions.(More)
Stability analysis of the 2007 Chehalis lake landslide based on long-range terrestrial photogrammetry and airborne LiDAR data Abstract On December 4th 2007, a 3-Mm 3 landslide occurred along the northwestern shore of Chehalis Lake. The initiation zone is located at the intersection of the main valley slope and the northern sidewall of a prominent gully. The(More)
