      Namburi, Devendra K.; Shi, Yunhua; Palmer, Kysen G.; Dennis, Anthony R.; Durrell, John H.; Cardwell, David A. (Institute of Physics, 2016-02-02)
      Bulk (RE)–Ba–Cu–O ((RE)BCO, where RE stands for rare-earth), single grain superconductors can trap magnetic fields of several tesla at low temperatures and therefore can function potentially as high field magnets. Although ...
    • Control systems for membrane fusion in the ancestral eukaryote; evolution of tethering complexes and SM proteins 

      Koumandou, V. Lila; Dacks, Joel B.; Coulson, Richard M. R.; Field, Mark C. (2007-02-23)
      Abstract Background In membrane trafficking, the mechanisms ensuring vesicle fusion specificity remain to be fully elucidated. Early models proposed that specificity was encoded entirely by SNARE proteins; more recent ...
    • Control vectors for splines 

      Kosinka, Jiři; Sabin, Malcolm A.; Dodgson, Neil A. (Elsevier, 2014-09-03)
      Traditionally, modelling using spline curves and surfaces is facilitated by control points. We propose to enhance the modelling process by the use of control vectors. This improves upon existing spline representations by ...
    • Controllability of Linear Passive Network Behaviors 

      Hughes, Timothy H.; Smith, Malcolm C. (Elsevier, 2015-12-11)
      Classical RLC realisation procedures (e.g. Bott-Duffin) result in networks with uncontrollable driving-point behaviors. With this motivation, we use the behavioral framework of Jan Willems to provide a rigorous analysis ...
    • Controllable Tuning Plasmonic Coupling with Nanoscale Oxidation 

      Ding, Tao; Sigle, Daniel; Zhang, Liwu; Mertens, Jan; de Nijs, Bart; Baumberg, Jeremy (American Chemical Society, 2015-05-15)
      The nanoparticle on mirror (NPoM) construct is ideal for the strong coupling of localized plasmons because of its simple fabrication and the nm-scale gaps it offers. Both of these are much harder to control in nanoparticle ...
    • Controlled generation and use of CO in flow 

      Hansen, Steffen V. F.; Wilson, Zoe E.; Ulven, Trond; Ley, Steven V. (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2016-02-25)
      A method for the generation and use of carbon monoxide in flow chemistry has been developed. By using a tube-in-tube reactor, oxalyl chloride can be conveniently and safely hydrolyzed using a NaOH solution to generate CO ...
    • Controlled membrane translocation provides a mechanism for signal transduction and amplification 

      Langton, Matthew J; Keymeulen, Flore; Ciaccia, Maria; Williams, Nicholas H; Hunter, Christopher A (Nature Publishing Group, 2016-12-12)
      Transmission and amplification of chemical signals across lipid bilayer membranes is of profound significance in many biological processes, from the development of multi-cellular organisms to information processing in the ...
    • ‘The Controlless Core of Human Hearts’: Writing the Self in Byron’s Don Juan 

      Plygawko, Michael J. (Liverpool University Press, 2014)
      This article examines Byron’s sense of self through his mercurial relationship with history, verse form and the imagination. Drawing mainly on close readings of Don Juan, it links his bathetic and idealistic impulses to ...
    • Controlling Catalyst Bulk Reservoir Effects for Monolayer Hexagonal Boron Nitride CVD 

      Caneva, Sabina; Weatherup, Robert S.; Bayer, Bernhard C.; Blume, Raoul; Cabrero-Vilatela, Andrea; Braeuninger-Weimer, Philipp; Martin, Marie-Blandine et al. (American Chemical Society, 2016-01-12)
      Highly controlled Fe-catalyzed growth of monolayer hexagonal boron nitride (h-BN) films is demonstrated by the dissolution of nitrogen into the catalyst bulk via NH3 exposure prior to the actual growth step. This “pre-filling” ...
