Phase field simulations of faceted growth for strong anisotropy of kinetic coefficient
Facet formation during crystal growth is simulated by using the phase field model in two dimensions. Instead of moderate anisotropy of the often-used form 1 þ d cos 4y; several functions havingExpand
Violet LED light enhances the recruitment of a thrip predator in open fields
The predatory bug Orius sauteri is an indigenous natural enemy of thrips and whiteflies in Asian countries. To put these bugs to practical use in pest management, methods to attract and retain theExpand
Hybrid Sex Pheromones of the Hibiscus Flower-bud Borer, Rehimena surusalis
The sex pheromone of the hibiscus flower borer Rehimena surusalis (Walker) (Lepidoptera: Crambidae) was analyzed by gas chromatography with electroantennographic detection (GC-EAD) and GC-massExpand
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 includingExpand
Elasto-plastic simulation of stress evolution during grain growth using a phase field model
Coupling effects among phase transformation, temperature and stress/strain are formulated based on thermodynamics using a phase field model. The elasto-plastic constitutive relationship is appliedExpand
SHP-2 positively regulates adipogenic differentiation in 3T3-L1 cells.
The Src homology domain 2 (SH2)-containing tyrosine phosphatase SHP-2 has been implicated in the regulation of proliferation and differentiation in various cell types. Here, we investigated theExpand
Single-Component Pheromone Consisting of Bombykal in a Diurnal Hawk Moth, Neogurelca himachala sangaica
Recent work has suggested that hawk moths share pheromone components but are sexually separated by qualitative and quantitative differences in their pheromone blends. During field assays on the sexExpand
Identification and field evaluation of sex pheromones in two hawk moths Deilephila elpenor lewisii and Theretra oldenlandiae oldenlandiae (Lepidoptera: Sphingidae)
The sex pheromones of two species of hawk moth, Deilephila elpenor lewisii (Butler) and Theretra oldenlandiae oldenlandiae (Fabricius), were analyzed using gas chromatography–electroantennographicExpand
Broadband Photoreceptors Are Involved in Violet Light Preference in the Parasitoid Fly Exorista Japonica
Phototaxis has been described in many insects, which are often attracted to specific wavelengths of light. However, little is known about phototaxis in parasitoid insect species that are potentiallyExpand
