To better judge the PMVC geometric structure with regard to the dipole ordering, we have proceeded to make a comparison between model calculations of the electronic structure and combined photoemission and inverse photo emission results.
The determination of dipole ordering is, however, complicated at the surface layer as there exists a surface ferroelectric phase transition from all-trans ([beta] phase) to a phase where period doubling of the surface structure occurs (involving four --([C[H.
For these reasons Steven Weinberg has written "These electric dipole moments .
This magnetic compass was designed originally as an automobile accessory, and we marked a visible arrow on the rotator by luminous paint parallel to the magnetic dipole of the ferrite.
Although "capacitance" measurements were crudely made before Debye's time, Debye's basic studies on the motion and energy of dipoles and ions created the foundation to interpret these and future measurements.
The summations over p and p' are absent as l uniquely defines the parity of the ground state and p' = - p from the selection rules of the transition dipole moment.
total power of one speaker), both modes; bipole and dipole mode average power were quite similar although the bipole by itself showed a small rise broadly centered on 4 kHz, like figure 2 top but not as pronounced.
Obviously, such dipoles are discussed within elementary dispersion theory [10].
The basic magnetic fields of the sun and planets are called dipoles, essentially resembling a bar magnet that has a north pole at one end and a south pole at the other.
The contribution of the sulfidic crosslinks especially mono- and di- to,the dielectric response is small, though sulfur crosslinks introduce some permanent dipoles to the polymer backbone, but these crosslinks simultaneously impose restrictions on the mobility of the main chain, i.
For each sample, a photomask was produced by computer, yielding a high accuracy in the spacing, length and thickness of the dipoles.
In the vicinity of the small kimberlite DK 8, discovered by De Beers in the 1970's, several new magnetic dipoles have been identified.
4, where the dipoles loss' contribution is negligible.
The ground follow-up results produced some strong magnetic dipoles and some drill testing was undertaken prior to flooding during the rainy season which did not intersect any kimberlite.
