• #### Electron transfer in K(nd) collisions with attaching molecules at low-to-intermediate n ﻿

(1990)
Negative ion formation via electron transfer in thermal energy collisions between K(nd) Rydberg atoms and simple polyatomic molecules is studied at low-to-intermediate values of principal quantum number, n (n $<$ 40). At ...
• #### Electron transport in ferromagnetic nanostructures ﻿

(2008)
As the size of a physical system decreases toward the nanoscale, quantum mechanical effects such as the discretization of energy levels and the interactions of the electronic spins become readily observable. To understand ...
• #### Electron tunneling rates between an atom and a corrugated surface ﻿

(2001)
We introduce a new method for calculating the broadening of atomic levels as a function of the atom's position outside the surface. The surface is studied using a cluster model, and the adsorbate-cluster eigenproblem is ...

(1978)
• #### ELECTRONIC AND CARS SPECTROSCOPY OF GAS PHASE TRANSIENTS: PHOTODYNAMICS OF AZOMETHANE AND PYRIDAZINE ﻿

(1985)
An apparatus has been constructed to perform gas phase excited state spectroscopy and dynamics with nanosecond time resolution. Two different transient spectroscopic techniques were employed to study azomethane and pyridazine. ...
• #### Electronic charge injection and transport in organic field-effect transistors ﻿

(2007)
Electronic devices based on organic semiconductors, such as field-effect transistors (FETs) and light emitting diodes have attracted much interest as possible inexpensive and flexible alternatives to inorganic devices. ...
• #### ELECTRONIC MATRIX ISOLATION SPECTROSCOPIC STUDIES OF METAL ATOM PHOTOCHEMISTRY ﻿

(1982)
This dissertation presents the results of chemical research efforts directed in three areas: (1) the final design of an ultraviolet-visible absorption and emission matrix isolation apparatus is described, (2) by employing ...

(1968)

(1956)
• #### Electrophysiological investigation of prestin function: Impact of cysteine replacement and characterization of self-association during voltage stimulation ﻿

(2009)
Almost 25 years ago unique piezoelectric activity was discovered in neuroepithelial cells of the mammalian cochlea. These cells, outer hair cells (OHCs), are mechanoelectrical transducers capable of converting changes in ...
• #### Electrostatic adhesion testing of metallizations on silicon substrates ﻿

(1997)
A novel technique is developed to measure quantitatively the adhesion strength of metallizations deposited on substrates such as silicon. Electrostatic adhesion testing employs electrostatic forces to generate delaminating ...
• #### Electrostatic Energy Exchange in Shock Acceleration ﻿

(2014-04-16)
Plasma shocks are very common occurrences, and diffusive shock acceleration is a simple and efficient mechanism for generating cosmic rays. A shock's main effect is turbulent dissipation, which rapidly thermalizes the ...
• #### Electrostatic regulation of oxygen and carbon monoxide binding in the alpha and beta subunits of recombinant human hemoglobin ﻿

(2004)
The electrostatic theory for ligand discrimination in myoglobin is based on the physiological importance of hydrogen bonding between the distal histidine and bound ligands in myoglobin. A quantitative estimation of this ...
• #### Electrostatic regulation of oxygen binding to the neuronal hemoglobin of Cerebratulus lacteus ﻿

(2004)
The neuronal hemoglobin from Cerebratulus lacteus (CerHb) has an O2 affinity (P50 &ap; 1 muM) similar to mammalian myoglobin (Mb), which are both optimized for oxygen storage and release. Mb has a histidine at the E7 helical ...
• #### Elegua's Surrealist shroud: Surrealism and Afro-Cubanism in the Negrista works of Alejo Carpentier and Wifredo Lam ﻿

(2003)
The Cuban writer Alejo Carpentier (1904--1980) and painter Wifredo Lam (1902--1982) draw upon Surrealism in their representations of an Afro-Cuban religiosity in their early Negrista works. Through a comparison of Carpentier's ...
• #### Elemental gyres: The structure of William Butler Yeats' "A Vision" (Ireland, Carl G. Jung) ﻿

(1996)
This dissertation presents a method for reading William Butler Yeats's A Vision. Establishing parallels between the language of A Vision and that of Jung's Psychological Types both renders A Vision comprehensible at the ...

(1977)
• #### Elfriede Jelinek und Valie Export: Rezeption der feministischen Avantgarde Oesterreichs im deutschsprachigen Feuilleton (German text) ﻿

(1991)
The writer Elfriede Jelinek and the multi-media artist Valie Export represent Austria's feminist avant-garde which evolved in the 1960s. Their work--a strong criticism of the social, economic and political situation of ...
• #### Eliminating incoherence from subjective estimates of chance ﻿

(2003)
Human expertise is a significant source of information about environments with inherent uncertainty. However, it is well documented that subjective estimates of chance tend to violate the mathematical axioms of probability, ...
