Under its in- fluence, the tender heart became stone, and the lamblike disposition gave way to one of tiger-like fierceness.
He had given hints only; and of course it had not taken very much to alarm Falk; but, instead of declaring himself, he had taken steps to remove the family from under my in fluence. He was perfectly straightforward about it--as straightforward as a tile falling on your head.
For the blends of PCBM and the low band gap polymer at low laser fluences (approaching solar intensity) ultra-fast charge generation dominates, but clearly triplet state formation occurs on a sub-ns timescale.
Various laser fluences, powers, and frequencies were selected from those described in the laser device manual.
After laser irradiation, a weak absorption band around 610 nm (2.0 eV) is observed [20], and the absorbance centered at 610 nm increases with the increasing pulse fluences. UV-vis spectra of sample irradiated in vacuum ([10.sup.-2] Pa) at the modest laser pulse fluence (8.17 J/[cm.sup.2]) with different pulse numbers were also detected.
The investigation of the effect of picosecond laser on target morphological changes was started with a series of the spot irradiated by different pulse numbers N and fluences F.
2a), the surface of the polymer is only ablated at high laser fluences (2.88 J [cm.sup.-2]) and its surface topography is completely different from PS (Fig.
Many laser applications in the surface modification field were made at reduced fluences (Zorba et al, 2006).
Dynamic cooling devices allow higher fluences, make the procedure less painful, and reduce the risk of dyspigrnentation or scarring from pulsed dye laser therapy, a recent study found (Lasers Surg.
These facilities demonstrate the growth in the field of fundamental neutron physics and present additional opportunities for experiments requiring large densities of ultracold neutrons, exploiting higher fluences of pulsed cold neutrons, or training future generations of neutron scientists.
Palomar has developed six handpieces to date, each specialized to treat different conditions and featuring varied spot sizes, wavelengths, and fluences.
Revealing cinematic in fluences as diverse as Ingmar Bergman and Clement Virgo, Short Hymn_Silent War 03 is a work of considerable accomplishment and originality Especially compelling is the film's defiant denouement, which contains both anguish and hope, and a brave return to that broken world where all this sadness began.
