Despite their different origin and structure, microcrystals activate PMNs leading to an inflammatory response.
However, the geometric-averaging procedure should be performed in two stages (within the incipient microcrystals first and then within the glassy matrix in which the crystallites are embedded) at the price of making the theory considerably more complicated.
Furthermore, because there has been experimental confirmation for both CH precipitation on HAP seeds (16) and HAP precipitation on CH seeds (present study), Craven's (15) notion that "a microcrystal of either structure may serve as a nucleus for growth of the other" has been substantiated.
Because light reflects more evenly with the microcrystal technology, it also helps to provide superior gloss."
Figure 10(b) shows the CIE chromaticity diagram for 20mol% [Yb.sup.3+]/2mol% [Er.sup.3+] codoped NaY[F.sub.4] microcrystal under the excitation wavelength of 980 nm.
Excess carrier decay at microcrystal boundaries and within disordered structure surrounding the microcrystals appears through carrier capture limited random-walk.
MicroCrystal Mounts - Mitegen's patented line of MicroMounts has been expanded to include the industry's thinnest and most transparent mount ever.
Topics covered by the volume's 15 original papers include a new method to determine the Young's modulus of a microcrystal based upon Raman spectrometry, solid-state reaction in an Al-Fe binary system induced by mechanical alloying, thermal behavior of xenon in a refractory metal for gas fast reactor fuel elements, molecular dynamics simulation of brittle fracture in BCC iron, growth kinetics of boride layers, structure and optical properties of magnetron-sputtered SiOx layers with silicon nanoparticles, reaction of iron with amorphous silicon and crystalline silicon for the fabrication of iron silicides, theoretical determination of the pressure-volume-temperature relationship of some alkali halides, and concentration micro-field for lamellar eutectic growth.
A silicalite-1 microcrystal monolayer was simply assembled using a previously reported procedure [19].
where [I.sub.s] is scattered light, [I.sub.o] is the incident light, D and E are constants that depend on polarizability and spatial orientation of the microcrystal, and polarizability of the surrounding amorphous material.
