    Fluid thrust control system

    Get PDF
    A pure fluid thrust control system is described for a pump-fed, regeneratively cooled liquid propellant rocket engine. A proportional fluid amplifier and a bistable fluid amplifier control overshoot in the starting of the engine and take it to a predetermined thrust. An ejector type pump is provided in the line between the liquid hydrogen rocket nozzle heat exchanger and the turbine driving the fuel pump to aid in bringing the fluid at this point back into the regular system when it is not bypassed. The thrust control system is intended to function in environments too severe for mechanical controls

    InAs-AlSb quantum wells in tilted magnetic fields

    Full text link
    InAs-AlSb quantum wells are investigated by transport experiments in magnetic fields tilted with respect to the sample normal. Using the coincidence method we find for magnetic fields up to 28 T that the spin splitting can be as large as 5 times the Landau splitting. We find a value of the g-factor of about 13. For small even-integer filling factors the corresponding minima in the Shubnikov-de Haas oscillations cannot be tuned into maxima for arbitrary tilt angles. This indicates the anti-crossing of neighboring Landau and spin levels. Furthermore we find for particular tilt angles a crossover from even-integer dominated Shubnikov-de Haas minima to odd-integer minima as a function of magnetic field

    H_2 Absorption and Fluorescence for Gamma Ray Bursts in Molecular Clouds

    Get PDF
    If a gamma ray burst with strong UV emission occurs in a molecular cloud, there will be observable consequences resulting from excitation of the surrounding H2. The UV pulse from the GRB will pump H2 into vibrationally-excited levels which produce strong absorption at wavelengths < 1650 A. As a result, both the prompt flash and later afterglow will exhibit strong absorption shortward of 1650 A, with specific spectroscopic features. Such a cutoff in the emission from GRB 980329 may already have been observed by Fruchter et al.; if so, GRB 980329 was at redshift 3.0 < z < 4.4 . BVRI photometry of GRB 990510 could also be explained by H2 absorption if GRB 990510 is at redshift 1.6 < z < 2.3. The fluorescence accompanying the UV pumping of the H2 will result in UV emission from the GRB which can extend over days or months, depending on parameters of the ambient medium and beaming of the GRB flash. The 7.5-13.6 eV fluorescent luminosity is \sim 10^{41.7} erg/s for standard estimates of the parameters of the GRB and the ambient medium. Spectroscopy can distinguish this fluorescent emission from other possible sources of transient optical emission, such as a supernova.Comment: 13 pages, including 4 figures. submitted to Ap.J.(Letters

    The eta' meson from lattice QCD

    Full text link
    We study the flavour singlet pseudoscalar mesons from first principles using lattice QCD. With N_f=2 flavours of light quark, this is the so-called eta_2 meson and we discuss the phenomenological status of this. Using maximally twisted-mass lattice QCD, we extract the mass of the eta_2 meson at two values of the lattice spacing for lighter quarks than previously discussed in the literature. We are able to estimate the mass value in the limit of light quarks with their physical masses.Comment: 16 pages: version accepted for publicatio

    Classification of Invariant Star Products up to Equivariant Morita Equivalence on Symplectic Manifolds

    Full text link
    In this paper we investigate equivariant Morita theory for algebras with momentum maps and compute the equivariant Picard groupoid in terms of the Picard groupoid explicitly. We consider three types of Morita theory: ring-theoretic equivalence, *-equivalence and strong equivalence. Then we apply these general considerations to star product algebras over symplectic manifolds with a Lie algebra symmetry. We obtain the full classification up to equivariant Morita equivalence.Comment: 28 pages. Minor update, fixed typos

    Identification of a heparin-releasable hepatic lipase binding protein from rat liver

    Get PDF
    Hepatic lipase (HL) plays a key role in the metabolism of several lipoproteins. Metabolically active HL is bound in liver parenchymal cells to specific binding sites. We studied the nature of the HL binding in rat liver. Rat livers were perfused with heparin, which lead to a loss of 80% of the HL binding capacity of the liver. The heparin-containing perfusates possessed HL binding capacity, determined by slot-blot assay. The perfusates were loaded on to a heparin-Sepharose column and eluted with a linear salt gradient (0.2-1 M). HL binding activity, assessed by a slot-blot binding assay, eluted both at 0.3 M and at 0.8 M NaCl. A 0.5 M NaCl eluate was used to further characterize the HL binding activity. In this fraction the major protein had a molecular mass of 70 kDa. The fraction showed saturable HL binding in a solid-phase binding assay
