. The Consortium for Electric Reliability Technology Solutions (CERTS) Microgrid concept captures the emerging potential of using a system approach to distributed generation. CERTS views generation and associated loads as a subsystem or a “Microgrid.” The sources can operate in parallel to the grid or can operate in island, providing high levels of(More)
Hot-cutting and immersion chilling of pork was compared with a conventional air chilling process. The right sides of eight pig carcasses were cut into primals whilst hot, vacuum packed and chilled in sodium chloride brine at 0°C, whilst the left sides were chilled conventionally in air at 0°C and 1 m/s, before being similarly cut and vacuum packed. The(More)
• In 1934, Goldblatt and associates constricted the renal arteries in dogs and produced chronic arterial hypertension. Numerous attempts have been made to elucidate the mechanisms responsible for this sustained elevation of arterial pressure and many workers have suggested that there is increased activity of the renin-angiotensin system. In recent years,(More)
BINNION, PETER F., JAMES 0. DAVIS, TORREY C. BROWN, AND MICHAEL J. OLICHNEY. Mechanisms regulating aldosterone secretion during sodium depletion. Am. J. Physiol. 208(4) : 655-661. rg65.LSteroid secretion was studied in conscious dogs before and during 4 days of Na depletion. A threefold increase in aldosterone secretion occurred but corticosterone output(More)
We report an experimental study of enhanced optical birefringence in silicon thin films on glass substrates. Form anisotropy is introduced as an atomic-scale morphological structure through dynamic control of growth geometry. The resulting birefringence is large compared with naturally anisotropic crystals and is comparable to two-dimensional photonic(More)
In an earlier study (1), the rate of metabolism of aldosterone was found to be decreased in dogs with chronic passive congestion of the liver secondary to thoracic inferior vena caval constriction. After hepatectomy of these animals and of normal dogs, the metabolism of aldosterone was almost abolished. It was suggested that the decreased aldosterone(More)
Porous materials with nanometer-scale structure are important in a wide variety of applications including electronics, photonics, biomedicine, and chemistry. Recent interest focuses on understanding and controlling the properties of these materials. Here we demonstrate porous silicon interference filters, deposited in vacuum with a technique that enables(More)
