    The article notes variations in salivary antibacterial activity against Lactobacilli in lactobacillus-selection (LBS) broth, trypticase soy broth, and in brain heart infusion broth. Antibacterial activity was lower in the brain heart infusion broth than reported in research by Zeldow (1959)....

  • Optical investigation of exciton localization in AlxGa1-xN. Lee, K. B.; Parbrook, P. J.; Wang, T.; Ranalli, F.; Martin, T.; Balmer, R. S.; Wallis, D. J. // Journal of Applied Physics;3/1/2007, Vol. 101 Issue 5, p053513 

    The optical properties of AlxGa1-xN epilayers with x ranging from 0.08 to 0.52 have been studied by photoluminescence (PL). The temperature dependent PL of the AlxGa1-xN epilayers shows a classical “S-shape” behavior. This behavior is attributed to exciton localization due to...

    A measurement of when the detonator breaks out and lights an initiation train has been a desirable diagnostic for both modelers and experimentalists alike. A detonator diagnostic has been developed using magnet wire circuit to transmit a signal when the detonation wave breaks the cup. This is...
