New Theories of Everything: The Quest For Ultimate Explanation

Can we ever find a unmarried medical thought that tells us every little thing that has occurred, and every little thing that may ensue, on each point within the Universe? the hunt for the speculation of every little thing - a unmarried key that unlocks all of the secrets and techniques of the Universe - isn't any longer a pipe-dream, however the concentration of a few of our most fun examine in regards to the constitution of the cosmos.

Passions and Tempers: A History of the Humours

Physicians in old Greece believed 4 humours flowed in the human body—blood, phlegm, black bile, and choler—determining a person's healthiness, temper, and personality. no longer until eventually the 17th century may a extra advanced view of the anatomy start to emerge. yet by way of then humoural conception had already turn into deeply ingrained in Western language and thought—and endures to today in unbelievable methods.

Science Education for Diversity: Theory and Practice

Reflecting the very most modern conception on range matters in technological know-how schooling, together with new dialogic ways, this quantity explores the topic from quite a number views and attracts on reports from around the globe. The paintings discusses basic issues corresponding to how we conceptualize variety in addition to interpreting the ways that heterogeneous cultural constructs impression the educating and studying of technological know-how in a number of contexts.

H. Guo, Q. Lu and J. F. Donegan School of Physics, Trinity College Dublin Ireland 1. Introduction Widely tunable semiconductor lasers will play a critical part in future technologies. Tunable lasers are rapidly replacing fixed wavelength lasers in dense wavelength division multiplexing DWDM optical communications. The performance specifications of tunable lasers are the same as fixed wavelength specifications plus additional specifications that include: wavelength tuning range; wavelength switching speed; and minimum wavelength spacing.

2006). The photonic quantum ring (PQR) laser is an attractive candidate for high-density “laser” displays, given the unique operating characteristics attendant on its quantum-wire-like nature, such as extremely low threshold currents and thermally stable spectra in the typical operatingtemperature range. 7As, emitting at 850nm. Moreover, we have observed unusual convex WCMs from reverse-mesa (=hole)-type micro-resonators, whose WCMs we interpreted with respect to gain-guiding and photonic quantum corral effects.

The above lasers were however two dimensional (2D) WGM which is troubled with the well-known WGM light spread problem. For the remedy of this problem, asymmetric WGM lasers of stadium type (Nockel & Stone, 1997) were then introduced to control the spreading light beam. (Wiersig & Hentschel, 2008) On the other hand, when we employ a new micro-cavity of vertically reflecting distributed Bragg reflector (DBR) structures added below and above quantum well (QW) planes, say a few active 80Å (Al) GaAs QWs, a 3D toroidal cavity is formed giving rise to helix standing waves in 3D whispering cave modes (WCMs) as shown Fig.
