Adhesive organs like arolia of insects allow these animals to climb on different substrates by creating high adhesion forces. According to the Dahlquist criterion, adhesive organs must be very soft, exhibiting an effective Young's modulus of below 100 kPa to adhere well to substrates. Such a low effective Young's modulus allows the adhesive organs to make(More)
QCP hypothesis also has consequences for the susceptibility amplitudes. Specifically , as ␻ 3 0, ␹Љ P (␻,T)/␻ should be controlled by a single variable representing the underlying magnetic length. In the upper right corner of Fig. 4, we plot ␹Љ P /␻ as a function of such a variable, namely ␬(␻ ϭ 0,T). The outcome is that ␹Љ P (␻,T)/␻ is proportional to ␬(␻(More)
The correct interpretation of superfluid flow experiments relies on the knowledge of thermal and viscous effects that can cause deviations from ideal behavior. The previous paper presented a theoretical study of dissipative and reactivejnondissipative) thermoviscous effects in both steady and oscillating flow of an isotropic superfluid through small(More)
