Negative-index metamaterials (NIMs) are engineered structures with optical properties that cannot be obtained in naturally occurring materials. Recent work has demonstrated that focused ion beam and layer-by-layer electron-beam lithography can be used to pattern the necessary nanoscale features over small areas (hundreds of µm(2)) for metamaterials with(More)
An interlaboratory study was conducted on an HPLC method with UV absorbance detection, previously validated using AOAC single-laboratory validation guidelines, for the determination of the six major ginsenosides (Rg1, Re, Rb1, Rc, Rb2, and Rd) in Panax ginseng C.A. Meyer and Panax quinquefolius L. root materials, extracts, and finished products. Fourteen(More)
The use of an active Nafion substrate is shown to enhance the performance of MALDI MS. The use of a Nafion substrate with certain matrices can significantly enhance the signals obtained over those observed with a stainless steel probe substrate. Analytes can often be observed with the use of the Nafion substrate that cannot be easily observed with the(More)
The lecture is given in four parts, each being a step in the process of nozzle design, and within each part the methods and techniques preferred by the lecturer are presented. We begin with a reminder concerning control volumes and the separation of aerodynamic and propulsive forces and moments. Then it is demonstrated how an appropriate control volume can(More)
