• Carbon fibres with ordered graphitic-like aggregate structures from a regenerated cellulose fibre precursor 

    Lewandowska, Anna E.; Soutis, C.; Savage, Luke; Eichhorn, Stephen J. (Elsevier, 2015-05-16)
    Abstract The production and characterisation of low modulus carbon fibres is reported from a commercially available regenerated cellulose fibre (CordenkaTM). The fibres were heat treated before the graphitisation at a ...

    The UV-Excess survey of the northern Galactic plane images a 10° × 185° wide band, centred on the Galactic equator using the 2.5-m Isaac Newton Telescope in four bands (I5875) down to ~21-22 mag ( in I5875). The setup and ...
  • State Capacity and Long-Run Economic Performance 

    Katz, Gabriel; Dincecco, Mark (Royal Economic Society, 2015-10-01)
    We present new evidence about the long-run relationship between state capacity { the scal and administrative power of states { and economic performance. Our database is novel and spans 11 European countries and 4 centuries ...
