### The energies and residues of the nucleon resonances N(1535) and N(1650)

We extract pole positions for the N(1535) and N(1650) resonances using two
different models. The positions are determined from fits to different subsets
of the existing $\pi N\to\pi N$, $\pi N\to\eta N$ and $\gamma p\to\eta p$ data
and found to be 1515(10)--i85(15)MeV and 1660(10)--i65(10)MeV, when the data is
described in terms of two poles. Sensitivity to the choice of fitted data is
explored. The corresponding $\pi \pi$ and $\eta \eta$ residues of these poles
are also extracted.Comment: 9 page

### Comment on `Measurement of the $\pi^+ \vec p$ analyzing power at 68.3 MeV'

We comment on a recent paper by Weiser et al. [Phys. Rev. C {\bf 54}, 1930
(1996)]. The authors have performed a single-energy analysis of $\pi^+ p$
scattering data at 68.3 MeV, finding a value for the $S_{31}$ phase shift about
1^o smaller than found in the Karlsruhe-Helsinki (KH) partial-wave analysis.
The authors use this result to argue for a dispersion relation analysis using
recently measured data, so that their effect on the $\pi NN$ coupling constant
(f^2) and $\Sigma$ amplitude can be determined. We note that these tasks were
accomplished prior to the submission of the above paper. We clarify the effect
of this new analyzing power data on f^2 and the $\Sigma$ amplitude.Comment: 5 pages of text. Revised according to Referee suggestion

### On an acoustic field generated by subsonic jet at low Reynolds numbers

An acoustic field generated by subsonic jets at low Reynolds numbers was investigated. This work is motivated by the need to increase the fundamental understanding of the jet noise generation mechanism which is essential to the development of further advanced techniques of noise suppression. The scope of this study consists of two major investigation. One is a study of large scale coherent structure in the jet turbulence, and the other is a study of the Reynolds number dependence of jet noise. With this in mind, extensive flow and acoustic measurements in low Reynolds number turbulent jets (8,930 less than or equal to M less than or equal to 220,000) were undertaken using miniature nozzles of the same configuration but different diameters at various exist Mach numbers (0.2 less than or equal to M less than or equal to 0.9)

### Investigation of the large scale coherent structure in a jet and its relevance to jet noise

A study was conducted to determine the causes of aircraft noise in large jet aircraft. It was determined that jet noise varies strongly with velocity and that significant pure tones are generated by rotor-stator interaction in the jet engines. An objective method for deducing the large eddy structure in a large jet is described. The provisions of lighthill's theory are analyzed and applied to investigating the nature of jet noise. There is considerable evidence that a large scale coherent structure exists in a jet and that this structure can play a major role in sound radiation. Mathematical models are developed to define the parameters of orthogonal decomposition, finite extent velocity field, homogeneous fields, and periodic velocity fields

### Thin n-i-p radiation-resistant solar cell feasibility study

Silicon solar cells were fabricated to verify the predictions that: (1) thin n(+)pp(+) cells can provide high values of open circuit voltage even when high resistivity base material ( 1000 omega-cm) is used; (2) cells with good p(+) back contacts will display an increase in open circuit voltage with decreasing cell thickness; and (3) high quality, thin, high resistivity, solar cells can be made using processing compatible with conventional practice. Analysis of I-V and spectral response measurements of these cells confirmed theoretical predictions and thereby pointed to voltages beyond the near 600 mV obtained in this study
