We report the formation of a three-dimensionally ordered array of air bubbles of monodisperse pore size in a polymer film through a templating mechanism based on thermocapillary convection. Dilute solutions of a simple, coil-like polymer in a volatile solvent are cast on a glass slide in the presence of moist air flowing across the surface. Evaporative(More)
A non-invasive method of assessing the stability of the human pre-corneal tear film is described using a novel keratometer mire designed in the form of a grid pattern (HIR-CAL Grid). In a laboratory environment, the technique measures with ease and little variability the time taken for the tear film to loose stability and enter the pre-rupture phase(More)
Well aligned, long and dense multi-walled carbon nanotubes (CNT) can be grown on both carbon fibres and any metal substrates compatible with the CNT synthesis temperature. The injection-CVD process developed involves two stages, including fibre pretreatment by depositing a SiO(2)-based sub-layer from an organometallic precursor followed by CNT growth from(More)
We use Chandra data to map the gas temperature in the central region of the merging cluster A2142. The cluster is markedly nonisothermal; it appears that the central cooling flow has been disturbed but not destroyed by a merger. The X-ray image exhibits two sharp, bow-shaped, shock-like surface brightness edges or gas density discontinuities. However,(More)
A simple, rapid, economical, precise and accurate Stability indicating RP-HPLC method for simultaneous estimation of Diloxanide Furoate and Ornidazole in Their Combined Dosage Form has been developed. The separation was achieved by LC20 AT C18 (250mm x 4.6 mm x 2.6 μm) column and Buffer (pH 4.5): Acetonitrile (40:60) as mobile phase, at a flow rate of 1(More)
Resonant photoemission of single crystals of the double perovskites GdBaCo2O5+d and DyBaCo2O5+d has been carried out at the UK Synchrotron Radiation Source at Daresbury. The resonance onset energy at the Co 3p→3d threshold is used to explore the Co spin state in the double perovskites as a function of temperature. In contrast with the simple perovskites(More)
12 We discuss the use of resonant photoemission in the study of rare earth/transition metal perovskites and perovskite-related structures. We illustrate its application to the assignment of the RE and TM valence band density of states in Nd2Ni1−xCuxO4 and REBaCo2O5+δ. In both cases, the relative positions of the 4f and 3d contributions within the valence(More)
Archean supracrustal sequences of pelitic, quartzitic, calcareous and mafic compositions in the central Laramie Mountains, Wyoming, have been affected by two metamorphic events: a 1.78 Ga amphibolitegrade regional metamorphism, and a 1.43 Ga contact metamorphism resulting from the intrusion of the Laramie Anorthosite Complex (LAC). Rb–Sr whole-rock isotopic(More)
