    Axworthy, Michael (Cambridge UP, 2011-01)
    The purpose of this article is to relate a remarkable episode involving Nader Shah’s navy and to connect it directly to the wider aims and projects of his regime (notably his ambitions in India), and the central events ...
  • NADPH oxidases regulate septin-mediated cytoskeletal remodeling during plant infection by the rice blast fungus 

    Ryder, LS; Dagdas, Yasin Fatih; Mentlak, TA; Kershaw, MJ; Thornton, CR; Schuster, M; Chen, J; Wang, Z; Talbot, Nicholas J (PNAS, 2013-02-19)
    The rice blast fungus Magnaporthe oryzae infects plants with a specialized cell called an appressorium, which uses turgor to drive a rigid penetration peg through the rice leaf cuticle. Here, we show that NADPH oxidases ...
  • Naïve Physics - the wrong theory? 

    McLaren, Ian P.L.; Wood, K; McLaren, RP (Cognitive Science Society, 2013)
    In this paper we examine the idea of a "naïve physics" in humans solving physics problems. This invokes the idea that people have a theory of motion in their heads that is non- Newtonian, and hence leads to systematic ...

  • Nano-Biophotonics 

    Garrett, Natalie (University of ExeterPhysics, 2010-04-28)
    Photonic techniques are the methods of choice for probing biological systems, as they are non-invasive, non-ionising, inexpensive, and are ubiquitous. When applied to the treatment and prevention of disease and for pathology ...
  • Nanoparticles and nanocomposites for display applications 

    Parsons, James (University of ExeterPhysics, 2009-08-03)
    The optical response of metallic structures has attracted significant interest for various applications in recent years. Of particular relevance to display applications is the ability to optimize the intensity and wavelength ...
  • Nanoscale spin wave valve and phase shifter 

    Au, Y.; Dvornik, Mykola; Dmytriiev, O.; Kruglyak, V.V. (American Institute of Physics, 2012)
    We have used micromagnetic simulations to demonstrate a method for controlling the amplitude and phase of spin waves propagating inside a magnonic waveguide. The method employs a nanomagnet formed on top of a magnonic ...
  • Narcissism and United States’ Culture: The View from Home and Around the World 

    Miller, JD; Maples, JL; Buffardi, L; Cai, H; Gentile, B; Kisbu-Sakarya, Y; Kwan, VSY; LoPilato, A; Pendry, LF; Sedikides, C; Siedor, L; Campbell, WK (American Psychological Association, 2015)

    The potential of an oral history approach to the study of landscape archaeology is considered. The paper presents the findings from an AHRB-funded project ‘Landscape archaeology and the community in Devon: an oral history ...
  • Narrating the ‘Arab Spring’: Where Expertise Meets Heuristics in Legislative Hearings 

    Dunlop, Claire A.; O'Bryan, T; Radaelli, Claudio M. (Palgrave, 2014-11-01)
    This chapter uses the Narrative Policy Framework (NPF) to analyse and compare the parliamentary hearings on the ‘Arab Spring’ of 2011/12 in the UK and the USA. The presence of bias is the main rationale for bringing experts ...
