The CD signal, expressed in millidegree, obtained over the wavelength range of 190-250 nm, was converted to a mean residue ellipticity (MRE, [theta]), using the following conversion:
* Control of the relative phase between channels to less than a millidegree.
Therefore if a highly stable current supply for the dc compensating Faraday cell is used, very small MOKE angles down to the order of one millidegree can be measured.
The new instrument is available as a 1-, 2- or 3-channel model with high-speed sampling on all channels, allowing up to 1 MHz frequency range with 10 millidegree accuracy--something that is necessary for low power-factor applications.
4 and 5, but also their positions are accurate and reproducible to a few tenths of a millidegree. Narrow peaks and accuracy in the peak positions are essential for high quality powder diffraction measurements.
The ordinate is reported as molar ellipticity (millidegrees); [mathematical expression not reproducible] were determined by performing a singular value decomposition (SVD) [37] analysis available with the Olis GlobalWorks software, followed by nonlinear regression fitting to determine [T.sub.M] using GraphPad Prism software (La Jolla, CA).
In Eqn 1, [C.sup.0-30 cm.sub.i,j] is the mean SOC in the 0-30-cm layer, and M is the mean SOC for the combination of the reference level of land use (low-producing grassland), the reference level for soil-climate (moist-temperate high-activity clay), and level ground; [L.sub.i] is the effect of the ith land use, specifying the difference in SOC relative to the reference land use (low-producing grassland) (in t [ha.sup.-1]); [S.sub.j] is the effect of the jth soil-climate class relative to the reference level; and b is the additional SOC for each unit of erosivity (slope x rainfall), or SR (millidegrees x [10.sup.-1]).
