Determination of critical points on silicon nanofilms: Surface and quantum confinement effects
(2008)In this work, we present a comprehensive study of the optical properties of nanocrystalline silicon films with thickness varied from 5 to 30 nm. Spectroscopic ellipsometry is employed to determine the dielectric functions ...

Article
Liquid expanded monolayers of lipids as model systems to understand the anionic hofmeister series: 1. A tale of models
(2009)In this work, we use Langmuir monolayers of dipalmitoyl phosphatidylcholine (DPPC) as model systems to enhance the understanding of specific anion effects in physicochemical and biological systems. The 298 K isotherms ...

Article
Numerical simulation of the extrusion of strongly compressible Newtonian liquids
(2008)The axisymmetric and plane extrusion flows of a liquid foam are simulated assuming that the foam is a homogeneous compressible Newtonian fluid that slips along the walls. Compressibility effects are investigated using both ...

Perturbation solution of Poiseuille flow of a weakly compressible OldroydB fluid
(2011)The isothermal, planar Poiseuille flow of a weakly compressible OldroydB fluid is considered under the assumption that the density of the fluid obeys a linear equation of state. A perturbation analysis for all the primary ...

Article
Perturbation solution of the compressible annular Poiseuille flow of a viscous fluid
(2010)The isothermal annular Poiseuille flow of a weakly compressible Newtonian liquid with constant shear and bulk viscosities is considered. A linear equation of state is assumed and a perturbation analysis in terms of the ...

Article
Perturbation solutions of Poiseuille flows of weakly compressible Newtonian liquids
(2009)Both the planar and axisymmetric isothermal Poiseuille flows of weakly compressible Newtonian liquids with constant shear and bulk viscosities are solved up to the secondorder. A linear equation of state is assumed and a ...

Risksensitive/integral control for systems with point process observations
(IEEE, 1994)This paper deals with necessary conditions for integral and exponentialofintegral cost functions, when the signal is a controlled diffusion process, and the observations consist of continuous and discontinuous processes. ...

Article
Steadystate current transfer and scattering theory
(2010)The correspondence between the steadystate theory of current transfer and scattering theory in a system of coupled tightbinding models of onedimensional wires is explored. For weak interwire coupling both calculations ...

Article
Symmetry and singularity analyses of some equations of the fifth and sixth order in the spatial variable arising from the modelling of thin films
(2013)In the modelling of the flow of thin films higherorder derivatives in the spatial variable are introduced to model nonlinear effects. We examine nonlinear evolution equations of the fifth and sixth orders in the spatial ...

Article
Weakly compressible Poiseuille flows of a HerschelBulkley fluid
(2009)In this work, we derive approximate semianalytical solutions of the steady, creeping, weakly compressible plane and axisymmetric Poiseuille flows of a HerschelBulkley fluid. Since the flow is weakly compressible, the ...
