mesoscopic

[¦mez·ə¦skäp·ik]
(physics)
Pertaining to a size regime, intermediate between the microscopic and the macroscopic, that is characteristic of a region where a large number of particles can interact in a quantum-mechanically correlated fashion.

He studied solid state physics at Cambridge University and did a thesis entitled Novel quantum effects in low-temperature quasi-zero-dimensional mesoscopic electron systems.
A team of scientists at the Michael GrEaAntzel Center for Mesoscopic Cells of Huazhong University in China in cooperation with the Laboratory for Photonics and Interfaces at EPFL directed by Michael GrEaAntzel have successfully manufactured a perovskite solar cell that does not need a hole-transportation layer.
From these equations, they derive a mesoscopic description of the statistical properties that reduces the complexity of the model.
In response to the applied voltages, an actual potential develops inside the dot; that is, an effective electrostatic profile potential inside the mesoscopic region exists in such a way, that it couples to both the electronic non-equilibrium state population and the non-equilibrium electric current.
When we repeat the process of deposition by Mn-doped-CdS QDs, more QDs will be generated on the mesoscopic Ti[O.sub.2] film, leading to the accumulation of photo-generated electron.
All these properties are dependent on the loading levels of CB and its mesoscopic structure such as percolation network.
He began studying for a PhD in physics - his thesis was on novel quantum effects in quasi-zero dimensional mesoscopic electron systems - but abandoned it halfway through to concentrate on comedy instead, forming a duo with Armstrong.
This is rather light on philosophy but updates a philosophical audience with some recent recent research on mesoscopic structures in complex interactions between water molecules and their environment as well as on the chemical effects of dynamical structures that are somewhat unique to water.
The surface layer of the polycrystal was considered as the autonomous mesoscopic structural level of deformation, at which the mesoscopic mechanisms of the plastic yielding develop much easier than in the material volume.
