Optical Absorption in Incoherent and Coherent States of a Quantum Hall System 2018-11-10T03:04:53+00:00 Sergey Dickmann <p>In connection with recent studies of extremely long-living spin-cyclotron excitations (actually magneto-excitons) in a quantum Hall electron gas, we discuss contribution to the light-absorption related to the presence of a magneto-exciton ensemble in this purely electronic system. Since the weakly interacting excitations have to obey the Bose-Einstein statistics, one can expect appearance of a coherent state in the ensemble. A comparative analysis of both incoherent and coherent cases is done. Conditions for a phase transition from the incoherent state to the coherent one are discussed.</p> 2018-11-10T02:59:46+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## On The Discrete Nature of The Gravitational Force 2018-11-27T11:19:28+00:00 Dewey Lewis Boatmun BOATMUN@SBCGLOBAL.NET <p>The standard model of particle physics has been extremely successful in unifying the strong, weak, and electromagnetic forces through the unitary product group SU(3) X SU(2) X U(1); and general relativity has been equally accurate in describing gravitation. No attempt thus far, however, has managed to incorporate general relativity into the standard model—or any other model. And while no attempt will, herein, be made to accomplish that endeavor, perhaps some of the insights will constitute a helpful step in that direction.&nbsp; In the following pages, gravitation and electromagnetism are looked at in new and different ways.</p> 2018-11-10T03:04:23+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Formation of hierarchical 2D-MoS2 nanostructures over carbon fabric as binder free electrode material for supercapacitor applications 2018-12-04T03:20:01+00:00 Selvaraj shanthi Yasuhiro Hayakawa Suru Ponnusamy Hiroya Ikeda Chellamuthu Muthamizhchelvan <p style="margin: 8px 0px; text-align: justify; line-height: 150%; text-justify: inter-ideograph;"><span style="margin: 0px; line-height: 150%; font-family: 'Segoe UI',sans-serif; font-size: 10pt;">Carbon fabrics are the new generation promising electrode materials for super capacitors owing to their high electrical conductivity, </span><span style="background: white; margin: 0px; line-height: 150%; font-family: 'Segoe UI',sans-serif; font-size: 10pt;">high chemical stability and low thermal expansion.

Pugach <p>Observations of the torsion balances` and the torsind`s behavior at the moments of the solar and lunar eclipses, the transit of Venus, the occultation of Venus by the Moon were performed. It is shown that in the most cases the devices reaction to these phenomena either outstripped or lagged behind the actually observed phenomenon. The statement is substantiated that the torsind reacts to non-electromagnetic radiation of an unknown nature, arising in the outer space surrounding the Earth.</p> 2018-12-04T03:35:32+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Investigation of Microstructure and Creep Properties of Sn-xSb Solder Alloys up to Peritectic Composition 2018-12-04T03:33:37+00:00 Amal Mohamed Yassin Berlent Khalifa Reda Ismail <p>Particle strengthening was studied in Sn-xSb (x=0.5–3.0 wt. %). Tensile deformation behavior of Sn-2.5 wt.% Sb is investigated at temperature ranging (298 - 343K) and under different constant loads ranging (5.1 - 14.0 MPa). The microstructure characteristics of the tested alloys have been obtained using x-ray diffraction. Morphological studies using optical microscope have been investigated to obtain correlation between the microstructure and mechanical behavior of the alloys. The improved strength is attributed to the uniform distribution of the SnSb intermetallic compound (IMC) inside b-Sn matrix. Based on the obtained stress exponent (n) and activation energy (Q), it is proposed that the dominant deformation mechanism is dislocation climb over the whole temperature range used.</p> 2018-12-04T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Characterization and Optical Properties of MnO Doped CuO-Containing Phosphate Glass as Absorption Filters 2018-12-04T04:31:52+00:00 Hytham Ahmed Abd El-Ghany <p>In order to demonstrate the intrinsic and extrinsic changes induced by MnO in the phosphate glass network, a glass system of composition 44P<sub>2</sub>O<sub>5</sub>-38ZnO-2CuO-(16-<em>x</em>)Na<sub>2</sub>O-<em>x</em>MnO (where, <em>x</em> = 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 mol%) was prepared using the conventional melt quenching technique. XRD patterns confirmed the non-crystalline nature of the prepared samples. The density and molar volume as a function of MnO content were determined to characterize structure of the obtained glasses. The optical spectroscopic studies of the prepared samples were carried out over (190-1000 nm) spectral range. The prepared samples were found to behave as bandpass filters in the visible region of spectrum. The UV cutoff wavelength was shifted from 308 nm to 352 nm by increasing content of MnO which is very useful in the optical technology requirements such as ultraviolet preventing applications and the protection from UV-LASER. The optical band gap was decreased by increasing content of MnO whilst, the Urbach energy was increased. The decrease in optical band gap was attributed to the progressive increase in non-bridging oxygens (NBOs) concentration with the addition of MnO. The refractive index was found to be enhanced with the addition of MnO by the effect of increase in overall polarizability. However, the optical polarizability was found to be correlated to the chemical composition of the glass. The results reveal the role of MnO as a network modifier in the phosphate glass matrix.</p> 2018-12-04T04:31:52+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement##
