It also discusses interband absorption of light and the size quantization Stark effect in quasi-zero-dimensional nanosystems, and the advantages of semiconductor quantum dots for the study and diagnostics of biological nanosystems, as well as a new method for amino acid diagnostics using semiconductor dots, discussion of the interaction of isolated quantum dots with charged amino acids, and a theory for the interaction of an electromagnetic field with one-particle quantum-defined states of charge carriers in semiconductor quantum dots, including the effects of the resonant interaction of light with local electron states in the presence and absence of a homogeneous magnetic field.
Davies claimed the stance has had a stark effect in persuading current or would-be England internationals to stay at home.

The Stark effect is the shifting and splitting of spectral lines of atoms and molecules by an electric field.
The Stark effect results in a shift or division of the spectral lines into several components due to the presence of an electrical field.
In the current study, the researchers used hybrid metal/semiconductor nanostructures developed through this process to experimentally demonstrate "tunable resonant coupling" between a plasmon (from metal core) and an exciton (from semiconductor shell), with a resulting enhancement of the Optical Stark Effect.
Because it does not matter which (non-resonant) colour the control laser has, the NRC team believes that laser control by the dynamic Stark effect should also be applicable to much larger molecules.
Therefore, in our conditions, the profile of a line is mainly contributed to linewidths arises from the Stark effect while the contribution of other mechanisms of broadening (Doppler effect, Van der Waals broadening, and resonance broadening) can be neglected, as shown under conditions similar to ours by Sabsabi and Cielo [20].
White is great for sunny days, but maybe you could play around with warmer tones to achieve a less stark effect.
In order to cope with this urgent issue, scientists in Japan have adopted optical diagnostics using the Stark effect, which is sensitive to local electric fields, to the IECF device with a hollow cathode.
Similarly, the quadratic Stark effect can be calculated from a knowledge of the electric-dipole oscillator strengths.
