Violet LED light enhances the recruitment of a thrip predator in open fields
In this study, the effect of violet-LED illumination on O. sauteri in pesticide-free eggplant cultivation showed that illumination with violet light provides a powerful tool for integrated pest management, the first report on the use of illumination to manipulate the behavior of natural enemies.
Phase field simulations of faceted growth for strong anisotropy of kinetic coefficient
Molecular dynamics simulation of shape memory behaviour using a multi-grain model
Shape-memory behaviour in multi-grain material is simulated using a molecular dynamics method. An embedded-atom-method potential for NiAl alloy is applied, and a sequence of conditions including…

The sex pheromone of the hibiscus flower borer Rehimena surusalis (Walker) was analyzed by gas chromatography with electroantennographic detection (GC-EAD) and GC-mass spectrometry (GC/MS).
An Atomistic Study on Shape-Memory Effect by Shear Deformation and Phase Transformation
An atomistic study on the shape-memory effect is carried out by molecular dynamics simulations with the EAM potential for Ni-Al alloy. As preliminary simulations, the stable structures for several Ni…

Analysis of the wavelength dependency of the phototactic behavior of the parasitoid fly Exorista japonica revealed that the flies were specifically attracted to violet light peaking at 405 nm, which was unexpected because insects are generally attracted to ultraviolet or green light.
Identification of the Sex Pheromone of the Diurnal Hawk Moth, Hemaris affinis
The ternary blend is probably responsible for the species specificity of the pheromone of the diurnal hawk moth, Hemaris affinis.
