Applications of Scanned Probe Microscopy to Polymers by James D. Batteas, Chris A. Michaels, Gilbert C. Walker

By James D. Batteas, Chris A. Michaels, Gilbert C. Walker

Applications of Scanned Probe Microscopy to Polymers stresses the research of polymer and biopolymer surfaces utilizing the ever-expanding methodologies of scanned probe microscopies. This e-book contains reports of optical houses via near-field methodologies, neighborhood mechanical homes of polymer movies by means of AFM, the dynamics and mechanics of unmarried molecules probed through AFM, and methodologies for stronger imaging modes. a first-rate concentration of this publication is the quantitative size of floor houses via scanned probe suggestions, which illustrates how the sector has developed and what new demanding situations lie forward. functions of Scanned Probe Microscopy to Polymers might be worthwhile to scholars and execs trying to find reviews that illustrate what sorts of polymer fabric houses should be probed via scanned probe microscopies.

Zodiac Calendars in the Dead Sea Scrolls and Their Reception: Ancient Astronomy and Astrology in Early Judaism

The traditional mathematical foundation of the Aramaic calendars within the lifeless Sea Scrolls is analysed during this research. Helen R. Jacobus re-examines an Aramaic zodiac calendar with a thunder divination textual content (4Q318) and the calendar from the Aramaic Astronomical ebook (4Q208 - 4Q209), all from Qumran. Jacobus demonstrates that 4Q318 is an ancestor of the Jewish calendar this day and that it is helping us to appreciate 4Q208 - 4Q209.

Mechanical and chemical stability, biocompatibility) with material microstructure, a key ingredient in the rational design of high performance materials. One strategy for realizing this goal involves the integration of vibrational spectroscopy into a near-field scanning optical microscope (NSOM). This combination of the sub-diffraction spatial resolution attainable in the near-field with the high chemical specificity of vibrational spectroscopy promises a powerful analytical technique that overcomes critical measurement limitations of both far-field vibrational microscopes (low spatial resolution) and scanned probe microscopes (lack of chemical specificity).
