We derive the appropriate form of the relative local density of states (RLDOS) for the two-dimensional Helmholtz equation in a homogeneous lossy medium, and give the corresponding result for the three-dimensional equation. ...
Alternative materials are required to enhance the efficacy of plasmonic devices. We discuss the optical properties of a number of alloys, doped metals, intermetallics, silicides, metallic glasses and high pressure materials. ...
Ordinary Portland-cement clinkers were characterised using neutron and synchrotron powder diffraction. Rietveld analysis was performed using individual as well as combined data. Comparisons were made between phase ...
Models of adsorbate dissociation by energetic electrons are generalized to account for activated sticking and chemisorption, and used to simulate the rate kinetics of electron beam induced chemical vapor deposition (EBID). ...
The structure and physical properties of a thin titania sol-gel layer prepared on silicon and silica surfaces were examined. Spectroscopic (FTIR, UV-VIS spectroscopy), refractive index (ellipsometry) and microscopic ...
A simple room-temperature solution chemical route for bulk synthesis of high quality ?- Bi2O3 nanowires has been demonstrated. The nanowires have a diameter of about 50 nm and a length in the range of several to tens of ...
In this paper, core loss features of soft magnetic composite (SMC) material from 5 Hz to 1000 Hz have been properly measured and discussed under alternating and three dimensional (3-D) rotational magnetizations. The ...

Zinc sulfide (ZnS) nanoparticles are of interest for their luminescent and catalytic properties which are useful in bio-medical, electronic and photovoltaic devices. However, ZnS nanoparticles undergo reversible and ...
A titanium-aluminium composite (TAC) has been produced using a novel vacuum cast process [1, 2] that has potential in biomedical and industrial plant applications. The overall aims of this investigation are to develop an ...

We present results from a new method for the solution of electromagnetic scattering from finite sets of two-dimensional cylinders exhibiting sidewall deformations. Our model treats the sidewall deviation as a small ...
We consider sums over the set of positive integers relevant to construction of periodic Green's functions for diffraction gratings and similar problems, and provide a general formula for a combination of Bessel functions ...

Environmental scanning electron microscopy (ESEM) enables electron imaging of gas-mediated, direct-write nanolithography processes, liquids, and hydrated biomaterials. However, ESEM is limited by poor image quality at gas ...
We prove a regularized formula for the secret key-assisted capacity region of a quantum channel for transmitting private classical information. This result parallels the work of Devetak on entanglement assisted quantum ...
We present a detailed theoretical study of the recent proposal for selective nanomanipulation of nanometric particles above a substrate using near-field optical forces [P.C. Chaumet et al., Phys. Rev. Lett. 88, 123601 ...
High-chromium white cast irons are alloys that are based on the iron-chromium-carbon system and are classified in ISO 21988-2006 as abrasion-resistant cast irons that contain greater than 11% chromium. High-chromium white ...
The scanning electron microsope (SEM) cna be used to study and characterise a wide variety of materials used in nanoelectronic and photonic applications. Several different techniques make use of this versatile tool. These ...

Semi-active H-infinity control of vehicle suspension with magneto-rheological (MR) damper is studied in this paper. First, an experiment is conducted on an MR damper prototype subjected to cyclic excitation. Then, a ...
We have developed semianalytical methods that allow us to perform a comprehensive analysis of the surface modes of photonic woodpiles. The surface modes of both finite and semi-infinite woodpiles are characterized using ...
We define the concept of an impedance matrix for three-dimensional (3D) photonic and metamaterial structures relative to a reference medium and show that it satisfies a matrix generalization of the basic algebraic properties ...
