Elke-Caroline Aschenauer German experimental particle physicist working at the Brookhaven National Laboratory in Long Island, United States. She is an expert on the nucleon structure and on the parton dynamics in the context of quantum chromodynamics. In , Aschenauer has been awarded the prestigious Humboldt Research Award [Humboldt], attributed by the . Historical Studies of the Moon Lunar Surface Ice on the Moon Absorption and Emission Spectra The nucleus of a hydrogen atom consists of a single positively charged particle called a proton. Heavier atoms have a second type of nuclear particle called a neutron. The neutron is similar in mass to the proton but electrically neutral. Polar coordinates in 3-dimensional space use (r) and two polar angles (q,f) giving the direction from the origin to the point. When 3-dimensional polar coordinates overlap a cartesian (x,y,z) system, q is the angle between the line to the origin and the z-axis, while f is the angle (counter-clockwise when viewed from +z) between the projection.

This coincidence suggested that the ionospheric absorption was associated with F-region plasma patches in the polar cap. Theoretical absorption values of dB, estimated using the electron densities and the electron-ion collision frequencies from the EISCAT F-region plasma data, are smaller than the observed values ( dB).Cited by: 8.

From the standpoint of propagation, that results in very low MUFs in the polar cap. But it is accompanied by an expansion of the polar cap that can bring on heavy, long-duration ionospheric absorption. That is the case with solar proton events, so-called polar cap absorption (PCA) events.

Another possible effect of a high-energy particle bombardment during a flare may be high absorption of HF signals propagating through the polar regions. This is called a Polar Cap Absorption (PCA) event and it may last for several days.

Multipoint studies have shown that Pc 3 pulsations are most intense in the dayside cleft regions, and recent observations of relations between magnetic, optical, and very low frequency (VLF) modulations at Pc 3 frequencies, with clear IMF control of all three types of signals, suggest that at least along field lines connecting to cusp/cleft.

It is possible to relate the response of a sphere to an applied uniform static electric field with the scattering from a small spherical particle Author: Reena Sharma, Ari Sihvola.

Surfaces of constant μ are spherical shells with radius displaced from the origin by c/tanh(μ) so that the sign determines on which side of the origin they fall. The surface μ = 0 is the x, y plane and μ = ∞ defines a point. η defines a type of rotation in the x, z plane, and ϕ defines a certain meridian plane.

UV-vis spectroscopy is a very useful and reliable technique for the primary characterization of synthesized nanoparticles which is also used to monitor the synthesis and stability of AgNPs [].AgNPs have unique optical properties which make them strongly interact with specific wavelengths of light [].In addition, UV-vis spectroscopy is Cited by: Colloidal gold is a sol or colloidal suspension of nanoparticles of gold in a fluid, usually water.

The colloid is usually either an intense red colour (for spherical particles less than nm) or blue/purple (for larger spherical particles or nanorods).

Due to their optical, electronic, and molecular-recognition properties, gold nanoparticles are the subject of substantial research. The ionosphere (/ aɪ ˈ ɒ n ə ˌ s f ɪər /) is the ionized part of Earth's upper atmosphere, from about 60 km (37 mi) to 1, km ( mi) altitude, a region that includes the thermosphere and parts of the mesosphere and ionosphere is ionized by solar radiation.

It plays an important role in atmospheric electricity and forms the inner edge of the magnetosphere. Layered deposits visible in the polar ice caps may have preserved a unique record of climate swings that occurred over the last few hundred million years.
