[1] The FUV instrument on the IMAGE spacecraft frequently observes intense ultraviolet (UV) emission from a localized dayside region poleward of the general auroral oval location. One type of these emissions has been described as the signature of direct proton precipitation into the cusp after lobe reconnection during northward interplanetary magnetic field (IMF) and high solar wind dynamic pressure periods [Frey et al., 2002]. Here we describe a completely different type of high latitude aurora, which does not show any signature of precipitating protons. It also occurs during northward IMF conditions however, only during periods of very low solar wind dynamic pressure. It occurs at a much higher geomagnetic latitude than the normal cusp location and only during periods of positive IMF By. The intensity of the UV emission is somewhat anti-correlated with the solar wind dynamic pressure, much in contrast to the cusp emission. The brightness of the localized emission changes rapidly on time scales between 30 and 70 minutes without corresponding changes in solar wind properties. Coincident measurements by the FAST spacecraft verify that this is not the cusp, that ion precipitation is absent in these regions, and that strong precipitation of field-aligned accelerated electrons causes the aurora. We interpret this aurora as the optical signature of electron precipitation in the upward leg of a current system which closes the downward leg of the current system into the cusp in the ionosphere.

This paper seeks to investigate the molecular organization of fatty acid spin label (4-palmitamido-2,2,6,6-tetramethylpiperidine-1-oxyl) and dipalmitoylphosphatidylcholine molecules in monolayer vesicles. The molar ratio of the spin probe was varied from 1 to 22% and the corresponding electron spin resonance spectra were measured at 25 and 48°C. These spectra were analysed in terms of the dipole-dipole and exchange interactions occuring between the radicals. From a computer simulation, a quantitative analysis of these interactions could be made. Comparison of these data with theoretical models indicate that above the lipid phase transition, i.e., at 48°C, the membrane is homogeneous and the label molecules diffuse randomly in the lecithin bulk phase (D = 3.8 X 10-8 cm2/sec). At 25°C, the membrane model can be viewed as a mosaic structure composed of spin probe clusters (7.9 X 1011 clusters/cm2). The size of the clusters as well as the minimal mean distance between two cluster edges could be calculated as a function of the spin label molar ratio. These results are used to interpret the observations made in the first paper of this series [Chatelain et ak., J. Colloid Interface Sci. 72, 287 (1979)] concerning the surface viscosity of the mixed monolayer and the kinetics of the enzymatic activity of phospholipase A2. It can be concluded that above a critical spin label concentration (10-15%) the properties of the entire lecithin phase are influenced by the presence of the spin probe clusters. [less ▲]

In this study, we perform first-principles molecular dynamics simulations of the eutectic alloy Ge15Te85 at five different densities and temperatures. We obtain structures in agreement with the available diffraction data and obtain a new view of the molten Ge chalcogenides. We show that the anomalous volume contraction observed in the liquid 30 K above the eutectic temperature corresponds to a significant change of the Ge-Te partial structure factor. The detailed structural analysis shows that volume variations observed upon melting in Ge15Te85, as in liquid, GeSe and GeTe, can be explained in terms of the competition between two types of local environment of the germanium atoms. A symmetrical coordination octahedron is entropically favoured at high temperature, while an asymmetrical octahedron resulting from the local manifestation of the Peierls distortion is electronically favoured at lower temperatures.

Engineering materials with specific physical properties has recently focused on the effect of nanoscopic inhomogeneities at the 10 nm scale. Such features are expected to scatter medium and long-wavelength phonons lowering thereby the thermal conductivity of the system without simultaneously decreasing the charge transport (phonon-glass electron-crystal concept). A new Zn1+xSb nanophase obtained by a wet chemical approach was densified by spark plasma sintering (SPS). Investigations on compounds subsumed as ``Zn4Sb3'' always suffer from its low thermal stability and the contamination of the nanoparticles with solvents and additives used in the synthesis. In order to gain insight into this compound's electronic properties we investigated a material free from remnants of the synthesis but contaminated with a small amount of well-characterized decomposition product, i.e., ZnSb. To investigate the influence of the sintering process on the densified samples, different SPS conditions were applied. Four different conditions were used with heating rates between 160 degrees and 230 degrees C/min, sintering temperatures between 130 and 190 degrees C and sintering times between 3 and 6 min. Powders from the surface of the pellets were subject to powder X-ray diffraction (XRD) yielding information about the surface composition. Small pieces of the pellets were also characterized using high-energy synchrotron radiation scattering in order to reveal the phase compositions inside the pellets. Small changes in the sintering conditions of the samples were found to have a large influence on the resulting sample compositions. In addition, the phase compositions on the surface differ significantly from the ones inside the pellets which show a much higher grade of decomposition. The density and morphology of the obtained pellets have been investigated by means of laser microscopy and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). The low density and porosity of the different pellets is a result of the graphite pressing tool which has to be used to ensure the temperature control during the SPS process.

We study the scalar sector of the general N-Higgs-doublet model via geometric constructions in the space of gauge orbits. We give a detailed description of the shape of the orbit space both for general N and, in more detail, for N=3. We also comment on remarkable analogies between the N-Higgs-doublet model and quantum information theory. [less ▲]

We continue our analysis of the general N-Higgs-doublet model and focus of the Higgs potential description in the space of gauge orbits. We develop a geometric technique that allows us to study the global minimum of the potential without explicitly finding its position. We discuss symmetry patterns of the NHDM potential, and illustrate the general discussion with various specific variants of the three-Higgs-doublet model. [less ▲]

The aim of this study was to assess the preventive effects of omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (omega3 PUFA) and luteolin supplementation on allergen-induced inflammation in eight Ascaris suum (AS)-sensitised cats. Airway responsiveness (AR) tests were performed and venous blood and bronchoalveolar lavage fluid (BALF) collected before and following a single (AS-stimulated) allergen exposure, as well as at the end of a 4-week treatment period, which was followed by a second AS-challenge. The omega6/omega3 fatty acid ratio in erythrocyte membranes, BALF cytology, AR to carbachol, and BALF lipoxin A(4) (LXA(4)), an endogenous inhibitor of inflammation, were assessed at each time point. Compared to respective unstimulated values, AS-challenged cats exhibited a significant rise in BALF eosinophil percentage and there was a trend to increased BALF total cell counts, increased AR and reduced BALF LXA(4) concentrations. The significant decrease in the blood omega6/omega3 ratio seen after supplementation demonstrated that omega3 PUFA were efficiently absorbed. No changes in BALF cytology were found between untreated and treated AS-stimulated cats, but BALF LXA(4) levels were significantly elevated and AR significantly decreased following supplement intake. The study suggests that omega3-luteolin supplementation may have some beneficial effects on AR through a LXA(4)-dependent pathway in cats with experimentally-induced asthma. [less ▲]
