Description: Women's flat shoes with brown leather sole, patent leather cream insole with designer's marks. Cotton blended fabric covers the whole foot up to the cinched ankle where there are two small straps of the same fabric to tie behind heel with a vertical seam down center and a slightly pointed toe. The fabric has a printed pattern of colored squares in aqua, blue, purple and periwinkle, with scattered printed signatures by the designer, "Emilio". Designer's marks on each sole: "Creation / Albion / Florence / Made Expressly / For E. Pucci"

Structure of ZnO Nanorods using X-ray Diffraction

Description: Many properties of zinc oxide, including wide bandgap semiconductivity, photoconductivity, and chemical sensing, make it a very promising material for areas such as optoelectronics and sensors. This research involves analysis of the formation, or nucleation, of zinc oxide by electrochemical deposition in order to gain a better understanding of the effect of different controlled parameters on the subsequently formed nanostructures. Electrochemical deposition involves the application of a potential to an electrolytic solution containing the species of interest, which causes the ions within to precipitate on one of the electrodes. While there are other ways of forming zinc oxide, this particular process is done at relatively low temperatures, and with the high amount of x-ray flux available at SSRL it is possible to observe such nucleation in situ. Additionally, several parameters can be controlled using the x-ray synchrotron; the concentration of Zn{sup 2+} and the potential applied were controlled during this project. The research involved both gathering the X-ray diffraction data on SSRL beamline 11-3, and analyzing it using fit2d, Origin 6.0 and Microsoft Excel. A time series showed that both the in-plane and out-of-plane components of the ZnO nanorods grew steadily at approximately the same rate throughout deposition. Additionally, analysis of post-scans showed that as potential goes from less negative to more negative, the resulting nanostructures become more oriented.

Development of Powder Diffraction Analysis Tools for aNanocrystalline Specimen: An Emphasis upon NiTi (Nitinol)

Description: Powder diffraction is a specialized technique whose investigatory limits are constrained by the scale of the crystallized substance being scanned versus the probe beam used. When disparate in scale, with the photon spot size larger than the crystal being probed, many are employed, the resulting diffraction image being cast from all possible incident angles, constructing {chi}-arcs containing information about the crystalline structure of the material under examination. Of particular interest to our collaboration is the structure of Nitinol, a superelastic Nickel-Titanium alloy, whose phase transformations and load bearing deformations can be studied by usage of diffraction, with wide sweeping biomedical uses. Analysis of this data is complicated by phase transformation and material fluorescence, which make difficult the computational modeling of the peaks within concentric {chi}-arcs. We endeavored to construct a series of computational tools (the amalgamation of them known as 2DPeakFinder) for refining and extracting this relevant data, toward the end of employing previously developed algorithms in the material's structural analysis. We succeeded to a large degree with the use of an iterative algorithm to navigate radial complexity of the signal and manage to retain a distinction between useful signal and superfluous background noise. The tools developed in this project are a small step in readily streamlining the analysis and physical modeling of a Nanocrystalline material's structural properties.

Selective Lipid Absorption

Description: An experiment was designed to study in the same animal any preferential absorption of a free fatty acid in the presence of a triglyceride of the same fatty acid. Rats were administered a mixture of free fatty acid and its triglyceride labeled with carbon-13 and carbon-14 respectively. Each isotope in the fed lipid and in the lipid recovered from the gastrointestinal tract was measured. The isotope effect, if any, was studied by administering a mixture of palmitic acid-1-C13 and palmitic acid-1-C14.

Dimensional Duality

Description: We show that string theory on a compact negatively curved manifold, preserving a U(1)b1 winding symmetry, grows at least b1 new effective dimensions as the space shrinks. The winding currents yield a ''D-dual'' description of a Riemann surface of genus h in terms of its 2h dimensional Jacobian torus, perturbed by a closed string tachyon arising as a potential energy term in the worldsheet sigma model. D-branes on such negatively curved manifolds also reveal this structure, with a classical moduli space consisting of a b{sub 1}-torus. In particular, we present an AdS/CFT system which offers a non-perturbative formulation of such supercritical backgrounds. Finally, we discuss generalizations of this new string duality.

'Insightful D-branes'

Description: We study a simple model of a black hole in AdS and obtain a holographic description of the region inside the horizon. A key role is played by the dynamics of the scalar fields in the dual gauge theory. This leads to a proposal for a dual description of D-branes falling through the horizon of any AdS black hole. The proposal uses a field-dependent time reparameterization in the field theory. We relate this reparametrization to various gauge invariances of the theory. Finally, we speculate on information loss and the black hole singularity in this context.

Plasma turbulence calculations on the Intel iPSC/860 (rx) hypercube

Description: One approach to improving the real-time efficiency of plasma turbulence calculations is to use a parallel algorithm. A serial algorithm used for plasma turbulence calculations was modified to allocate a radial region in each node. In this way, convolutions at a fixed radius are performed in parallel, and communication is limited to boundary values for each radial region. For a semi-implicity numerical scheme (tridiagonal matrix solver), there is a factor of 3 improvement in efficiency with the Intel iPSC/860 machine using 64 processors over a single-processor Cray-II. For block-tridiagonal matrix cases (fully implicit code), a second parallelization takes place. The Fourier components are distributed in nodes. In each node, the block-tridiagonal matrix is inverted for each of allocated Fourier components. The algorithm for this second case has not yet been optimized. 10 refs., 4 figs.
