    Microfluidic systems can conveniently be used for rapid analysis of biological samples. Here we describe a single re-circulating flow, or microvortex, that can generate a maximum fluid rotational velocity of up to 12 m s-1 and a corresponding radial acceleration in excess of 106g. Such...

    Digital signal processing methods have been applied to vortex flowmeter for extracting the useful information from noisy output of the vortex flow sensor. But these approaches are unavailable when the power of the mechanical vibration noise is larger than that of the vortex flow signal. In order...

    As part of a program to investigate the effectiveness of vortex breakdown in bioreactors for cell and tissue growth, a nonintrusive method of flow control is presented. A small rotating disk flush-mounted opposite to the rotating lid in a confined cylindrical vessel is found to precipitate or...

    The article focuses on the company Amoco Laser which has developed the first diode-pumped green-light microlaser that operates without a fan over a temperature range of 10-350. Its ability to cool itself means that users don't have to worry about vibrations from a fan affecting the laser when...

    The viscosity of 4He in the temperature range 0.1–2.2 K has been measured using a vibrating quartz tuning fork. A quantitative comparison is made of the experimental data and the conclusions of the modern theory of the phonon-roton system of superfluid helium. The complex hierarchy of...

    We explore the information content of time-resolved photoelectron imaging, a potentially powerful pump-probe technique whose popularity has been rapidly growing in recent years. To that end, we identify a mapping of the alignment properties of time-evolving wave packets onto the moments of the...
