Advanced methods in Glancing Angle Deposition to control thin film morphology, microstructure and textureDownload
Structuring of material on the nanoscale is enabling new functional materials and improving existing technologies. Glancing angle deposition (GLAD) is a physical vapor deposition technique that enables thin film fabrication with engineered columnar structures on the (10 to 100) nm scales. In this...
This dissertation examines the phenomenon of suffix ordering in English from a psycholinguistic perspective. Key to this work is an examination of Complexity-Based Ordering, a theory of affix ordering that combines both selectional restrictions and processing constraints. Complexity-Based...
Ankylosaur (Dinosauria, Ankylosauria) foot morphology and an assessment of the function of the limbs and feetDownload
Morphology and function of ankylosaur dinosaur limbs are explored and analyzed using comparative morphology and finite element analysis. Reconstruction of the forelimb and posture of Pinacosaurus grangeri matches well with trackways attributed to ankylosaurs. A flexed humerus angled away from the...
The paper works towards an account of explanatory integration in biology, using as a case study explanations of the evolutionary origin of novelties—a problem requiring the integration of several biological fields and approaches. In contrast to the idea that fields studying lower level phenomena...
Bilingualism is often considered an inappropriate developmental choice for children with specific language impairment (SLI) because, according to a widespread belief, these children’s limited capacity for language would be overtaxed by learning two linguistic systems. However, there has not been...
Paleontology is a multi-faceted subject that involves taxonomy and community analysis as two of its cornerstones. Both qualitative and quantitative approaches have been incorporated into the various methods employed in such analyses. Each paleontologist obvious has his or her own preference that...
Particulate matter emitted from two direct injection engines has been characterized by morphology, volatility, mass-mobility exponent, effective density, and size distribution using tandem measurements from a centrifugal particle mass analyzer (CPMA) and differential mobility analyzers (DMA). The...
Formation and Morphology of an Iron Plaque on the Roots of Typha latifolia L. Grown in Solution Culture.Download
Roots of Typha latifolia L. exposed to Fe2+ under reduced conditions in solution culture developed visible coatings (plaques) of an oxidized Fe compound that extended as much as 15-17 ,um into the rhizosphere. Iron concentrations were significantly less and discoloration was not apparent on the...
Populations of a host species may exhibit different assemblages of parasites and other symbionts. The loss of certain species of symbionts (lineage sorting, or ‘‘missing-the-boat’’) is a mechanism by which geographical variation in symbiont assemblages can arise. We studied feather mites and lice...
