    Poly(p-phenylenevinylene) (PPV) thin films were fabricated with poly(sodium 4-styrenesulfonate) (PSS) anion by the layer-by-layer (LbL) deposition technique. A precursor PPV was thermally converted into PPV even at 100 °C in the presence of PSS. By the low-temperature conversion, the...

    The article discusses four facets of the advanced coil technology in evaporative condensers and closed-circuit cooling towers that contribute to reduced scale formation and fouling tendency. First, the air and water flow in a parallel path. Second, water flow over the coil is increased. Third,...

    The heat input required to defrost coils within refrigerated spaces is partially removed with the melt, partially warms the coil and refrigerant and partially escapes to the refrigerated space as sensible heat by convection and radiation and as latent heat by evaporation and sublimation. The...

    Air relative humidity (RH) in a refrigerated facility is determined by the balance between moisture entry (principally through doors) and moisture removal (principally as frost on the air-cooling coil). It has been shown that coil frosting is "unfavorable," leading to very rapid decline in...

    We report on the design and implementation of a rotating sample magnetometer (RSM) operating in the variable temperature insert (VTI) of a cryostat equipped with a high-field magnet. The limited space and the cryogenic temperatures impose the most critical design parameters: the small bore size...
