Recent papers have brought evidence against the hypothesis that the fucosyl branching of primary wall xyloglucans (Xg) are responsible for their higher capacity of binding to cellulose. Reinforcement of this questioning has been obtained in this work where we show that the binding capacity was improved when the molecular weight (MW) of the Xg polymers is(More)
We show that the saturation characteristic of microwave-photonic gain is Bsuper-homogeneous[ such that the gain of a weaker tone saturates more rapidly than that of a stronger tone when both signals are transmitted over an intensity-modulated optical link. Using this gain model, we simulate the effect of nonlinear gain saturation on the performance of a(More)
Phase behavior and structural features were investigated for "complex salts", consisting of the cationic hexadecyltrimethylammonium (CTA) surfactant with polyacrylate (PA(n), n = 30 or 6000) counterions, mixed with water and different n-alcohols (ethanol, butanol, hexanol, octanol, and decanol). The liquid crystalline structures formed were identified by(More)
