They are RoHS-compliant and provide laser grade specifications, including [lambda]/10 surface flatness, 10-5 surface quality, and <3 arcmin parallelism.
Pan, 2017: Global manure nitrogen production and application in cropland and rangeland during 1860-2014: A 5 arcmin gridded global dataset for Earth system modeling.
Two checkerboard stimulations with check sizes of 40 arcmin (PR-VEP 40') and 20 arcmin (PR-VEP 20') were used.
The field of view is 33 x 25 arcmin The Green circles represent the reference stars identified by Astrometrica in the photography and used for calculation of asteroids position.
The angle between the original neutrino and the produced charged lepton ([[theta].sub.v] - [[theta].sub.L]) has been estimated to be smaller than 1 arcmin for energies above 1 PeV for [tau]'s [19]; so, we expect this angle to be negligible.
Mean annual temperature data (1950-2000 climate normal) at 5 arcmin resolution were obtained from the WorldClim global climate database (Hijmans et al, 2005).
The AMT31 series also delivers exceptional accuracy figures of +/- 12 arcmin ([+ or -]0.2 mechanical degrees).
And the maximum offset is -0.45 arcmin. Meanwhile, the shearer position is dispersed in [X.sub.n], [Y.sub.n], and [Z.sub.n] and the maximum offset is 2000 mm.
Figure 2 shows a typical case with [lambda] = 4 [Angstrom], [DELTA][lambda] = 1 [Angstrom], a narrow [DELTA]d/d = [10.sup.-3] and a mosaic spread of n = 10 arcmin. Note that the d-spacing spread [DELTA]d/d and the mosaic spread n of the crystal affect the beam divergence.
Halley, who had access to Flamsteed's data, showed in 1717 that three stars, Aldebaran, Sirius and Arcturus, had changed position by 20 to 30 arcmin since ancient times.
At the time of our observations, the Physics Innovations Robotic Astronomical Telescope Explorer (PIRATE) facility comprised a remotely controllable 35cm, f/10 Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope (Celestron-14) equipped with an SBIG STL 1001E CCD camera with 1024x1024 24ujn pixels, resulting in a field of view of 21 arcmin and a pixel scale of 1.21 arcsec per pixel.
