• #### Effect of electron blocking layers on the conduction and valence band profiles of InGaN/GaN LEDs ﻿

(Wiley, 2016-02-17)
In this paper we investigate the effect of including an electron blocking layer between the quantum well active region and the p-type layers of a light emitting diode has on the conduction and valence band profile of a ...
• #### The effect of encapsulated glutamine on gut peptide secretion in human volunteers ﻿

(Elsevier, 2015-11-02)
CONTEXT: Weight loss and improved blood glucose control after bariatric surgery have been attributed in part to increased ileal nutrient delivery with enhanced release of glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1). Non-surgical ...
• #### The Effect of Farmland Management on Soil Phosphorus Runoff in Taihu Basin ﻿

(Association of Cambridge Studies, 2011)

(2013)
• #### Effect of flood basalt stratigraphy on the phase of seismic waveforms recorded offshore Faroe Islands ﻿

(Society of Exploration Geophysics, 2015-04-20)
The generation of short-period multiples between highly heterogeneous layers of basalt flows can strongly alter transmitted seismic wavefields. These layers filter and modify penetrating waves, producing apparent attenuation ...
• #### The Effect of Fluoride on the Structure, Function, and Proteome of a Renal Epithelial Cell Monolayer ﻿

(Wiley, 2016-08-22)
High concentrations of fluoride in the body may cause toxic effects. Here, we investigated the effects of fluoride on the structure, function, and proteome of a cortical collecting duct epithelium $\textit{in vitro}$. ...
• #### The effect of genetic structure on molecular dating and tests for temporal signal ﻿

(Wiley, 2015-09-22)
1. “Dated-tip” methods of molecular dating use DNA sequences sampled at different times, to estimate the age of their most recent common ancestor. Several tests of “temporal signal” are available to determine whether ...
• #### The effect of inclination and stand-off on the dynamic response of beams impacted by slugs of a granular material ﻿

(Elsevier, 2014-12-04)
The dynamic response of end-clamped sandwich and monolithic beams to impact by highvelocity tungsten carbide (WC) particle columns (slugs) has been measured with the aim of developing an understanding of the interaction ...
• #### Effect of individual discharge cascades on the microstructure of plasma electrolytic oxidation coatings ﻿

(Elsevier, 2016-07-19)
Short duration (~1 s) PEO treatments have been applied to aluminium alloy samples on which coatings of thickness ~100 $\mu$m had previously been created. This was done using the small area electrical monitoring system ...
• #### The effect of inkjet ink composition on rheology and jetting behaviour ﻿

(Proc 27th Int. Conf. on Digital Printing Technologies, 2011)
This work presents recent results on the way linear and non linear viscoelastic properties of the fluids affect the jetting mechanism. Recent progress on quantitative characterising both high frequency linear (LVE) and ...
• #### The effect of long-term and decadal climate and hydrology variations on estuarine marsh dynamics: An identifying case study from the Río de la Plata ﻿

(Elsevier, 2016-06-21)
The vertical growth of coastal wetlands is known to primarily be controlled by local tidal range and sediment availability as well as the occurrence of storm events. In estuaries, sediment availability additionally depends ...
• #### Effect of masking phase-only holograms on the quality of reconstructed images ﻿

(The Optical Society, 2016-03-14)
A phase-only hologram modulates the phase of the incident light and diffracts it efficiently with low energy loss because of the minimum absorption. Much research attention has been on how to generate phase-only holograms, ...
• #### The effect of mass loading on spurious modes in micro-resonators ﻿

(AIP, 2015-07-28)
Dissipation mechanisms severely compromise the performance of micro-resonator based sensors. In this letter we specifically examine the shift in resonant frequency of spurious modes towards the mode of interest during mass ...
• #### Effect of Media Usage Selection on Social Mobilization Speed: Facebook vs E-Mail ﻿

(PLoS, 2015-09-30)
Social mobilization is a process that enlists a large number of people to achieve a goal within a limited time, especially through the use of social media. There is increasing interest in understanding the factors that ...
• #### Effect of metal oxide additions to quality on Ge/GeO<inf>2</inf> interfaces ﻿

(AIP Publishing, 2016-10-07)
© 2016 Author(s).Alloying amorphous GeO2 with Y2O3 or related group IIIA oxides is known experimentally to improve its properties as a gate dielectric in field effect transistors. The mechanism of this is studied here by ...
• #### Effect of micro-patterning on bacterial adhesion on PET (polyethylene terephthalate) surface ﻿

(Sage, 2014-12-16)
Bacterial adhesion on surfaces commonly used in medicine and food industry could lead to infections and illnesses. Topographically patterned surfaces recently have shown to be a promising alternative to chemical antibacterial ...
• #### Effect of microgrooved surface topography on osteoblast maturation and protein adsorption ﻿

(Wiley, 2015-02-13)
Microgrooved surfaces have been used extensively to influence cell contact guidance. Guiding cell growth, extracellular matrix deposition, and mineralization is important for bone implant longevity. In this study, we ...
• #### The effect of mixing on the extrusion-spheronisation of a micro-crystalline cellulose paste ﻿

(Elsevier, 2014-12-18)
The effect of mixer shear strain rate on the performance of a model micro-crystalline cellulose pharmaceutical paste undergoing extrusion–spheronisation was studied using a laboratory scale planetary mixer and a screw-based ...
