While in view of their admiring comrades, the same proud front and ordered array was observed, until the notes of their fifes growing fainter in distance, the forest at length appeared to swallow up the living mass which had slowly entered its bosom.
This finding, of a tendency to change toward safer choices, and therefore greater risk aversion, implies that subjects making risky decisions that are confronted one by one may exhibit less risk aversion than when the same decisions are made in the face of an ordered array of alternatives.
A CCA is 'a three-dimensional ordered array of mono-dispersed colloidal particles, (which) can self-assemble into ordered arrays (crystalline structures) having lattice spacings that are comparable to the wavelength UV, visible or IR light' according to PPG's published patent application (US 2009/0317623).
The particles are comprised of polymers produced from monomers having different glass transition temperatures, the difference in glass transition temperatures ranging from 50-260[degrees]C, and exhibiting phase segregation between areas of differing glass transition temperature within each particle, such that when the coating is applied to a substrate, the particles form a geometrically ordered array and the coating, when dried, is capable of dissipating frequencies of sound in the range of 400-20,000 Hz, wherein the polymer particles comprise one or more nitrile functional materials, one or more amide functional materials, one or more carbamate functional materials or mixtures thereof and the polymer particles further comprise one or more polyoxyalkylene acrylates.
The array is then stored in memory as a row-major ordered array of sub-arrays.
The method includes providing an ordered array of particles received within a curable matrix composition; curing a first portion of the matrix composition, wherein the first cured portion diffracts radiation at a first wavelength, curing another portion of the matrix composition, wherein the other cured portion diffracts radiation at another wavelength; and exposing the array to radiation to exhibit an image.
