126 Picosecond optical generation and detection of phonon waves in a-As2Te3Using the pump and probe technique we have observed oscillations of photoinduced transmission in thin films of a-As2Te3. The oscillations have periods of 70-240 ps, depending on sample thickness. We ascribe these to phonon propagation in the films. Thermal expansion and carrier deformation potenti...Picosecond optical generation; a-As2Te3; Pump and probe technique1984
127 Initiation of E. coli proteins.Recent experiments and theoretical arguments suggest that formylmethionyl sRNA is employed as an initiator of protein synthesis. Studies also indicated that other phage proteins synthesized in the in vitro system were initiated with formylmethionine. These observations provided a basis for believin...Alanine; Chromatography, Paper; Dipeptides1966-06
128 Explicit-enumeration based verification made memory-efficientWe investigate techniques for reducing the memory requirements of a model checking tool employing explicit enumeration. Two techniques are studied in depth: (1) exploiting symmetries in the model, and (2) exploiting sequential regions in the model. The first technique resulted in a significant reduc...Verification; Model checking tool; Memory-efficient1995
129 Role of light-emitting diodes for photodynamic therapy of brain tumorsThe development of more effective light sources for Photodynamic Therapy (PDT) of brain tumors would be of benefit for both research and clinical application.

131 Penn Central Transportation Company v. New York City: easy taking-clause cases make uncertain Law.In Penn Central Transportation Company v. New York City, the Supreme Court held that New York City's Landmarks Preservation Law as applied to Grand Central Terminal was not a "taking" of property for which compensation is constitutionally required. The decision has been hailed as a major victory for...Law; Compensation; Property Rights; Landmarks Preservation Law; Supreme Court Rulings2006-06-16
132 Cerebral vasculopathies masquerading as eclampsia.Obstetricians know that preeclampsia-eclampsia is a syndrome and is a final common pathway for multiple causes. It is also possible that other conditions, not always directly related to pregnancy, can mimic preeclampsia-eclampsia. One such entity is cerebral vasculopathy, an entity characterized b...Cerebrovascular Disorders; Eclampsia; Puerperal Disorders2006-02

134 Infrared absorption and Raman scattering on coupled plasmon-phonon modes in superlatticesWe consider theoretically a superlattice formed by thin conducting layers separated spatially between insulating layers. The dispersion of two coupled phonon-plasmon modes of the system is analyzed by using Maxwell's equations, with the influence of retardation included. Both transmission for the fi...Infrared absorption; Raman scattering2006-04
135 Cell phone effect on motor vehicle fatality rates: a Bayesian and classical econometric evaluationThis paper examines the potential effect of cell phones on motor vehicle fatality rates normalized for other driving related and socioeconomic factors. The model used is nonlinear so as to address both life-taking and life-saving attributes of cell phones. The model is evaluated using classical meth...2010

Using the Z-scan technique on the polymers in solutio...Two-photon absorption; Two-photon saturation; Luminescent polymers; Dispersion; Polymer solution; PPA-DBO1997
138 Growth and change Florida style: 1970 to 2000In response to development patterns leading to what may be termed "urban sprawl," several local, regional, and state governments in the United States have embarked on growth management or urban containment strategies. These strategies typically aim to synchronize key public facilities with urban dev...2007-01-01
139 So many meetings so little time: using IP videoconferencing to revitalize statewide committeesInternet technologies continue to transform the library profession and redefine how we communicate with professional colleagues and peers. IP (Internet Protocol) videoconferencing provides increased opportunities for librarians to engage in virtual teamwork and e-collaborations.
