Time Resolved Size Distributions of Test Smokes and Nuisance Aerosols Abstract An electrical low-pressure impactor (ELPI) has been used to measure the size distribution of various test smokes and nuisance aerosols generated in the fire emulator/detector evaluator (FE/DE). Previously reported size results were timeaveraged values with sampling times on the order of five minutes required to collect a weighable amount. The ELPI is a 12-stage cascade impactor that separates particles between an… Expand

Anomalous Nonlinear Optical Response of Graphene Near Phonon Resonances.
The third-order nonlinear optical property of graphene and hexagonal boron nitride and their heterostructure is probed by the use of coherent anti-Stokes Raman spectroscopy and it is demonstrated that the anomalous effect in graphene dominates the heterost structure non linear optical response.

Better balanced and accurate evidence of the properties of antipsychotic drugs is provided so as to convince lawmakers and advocates for the mentally disabled that it is safe to roll back some of the more counterproductive legal strictures on the effort to provide mental health treatment. Expand
Three phase control for PWM switched auto transformer voltage sag compensator based on phase angle analysis
This paper presents a three-phase PWM-switched autotransformer voltage-sag compensator that is based on AC-AC converter and that uses the proposed three phase controller based on Phase Angle Analysis as the detection technique. Expand
The Derivation and Application of a Theoretically and Economically Consistent Version of the Nelson and Siegel Class of Yield Curve Models
A popular class of yield curve models is based on the Nelson and Siegel (1987) (hereafter NS) approach of “fitting” yield curve data with simple functions of maturity. However, NS models are notExpand
The Fable of Fisher Body*
