  • Nader Shah and Persian Naval Expansion in the Persian Gulf, 1700-1747 

    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 ...
  • The Name of the Flower 

    Malallah, Hanaa (2010-11-08)
    Sample pages from 100-leaf Art Book. Uses the Ruins Technique: Efforts to give form not only to the damage suffered by the city in which she lived but also to the collateral disfigurement of its aesthetic tradition, her ...

  • 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 Electromagnetic Compatibility: Quantum Coupling and Matching in Nanocircuits 

    Slepyan, GY; Boag, A; Mordachev, V; Sinkevich, E; Maksimenko, S; Kuzhir, P; Miano, G; Portnoi, M.E.; Maffucci, A (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Inc., 2015-08-11)
    The paper investigates two typical electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) problems, namely, coupling and matching in nanoscale circuits composed of nano-interconnects and quantum devices in entangled state. Nano-interconnects ...
  • 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 ...
  • Nanoscale switch for vortex polarization mediated by Bloch core formation in magnetic hybrid systems. 

    Wohlhüter, P; Bryan, MT; Warnicke, P; Gliga, S; Stevenson, SE; Heldt, G; Saharan, L; Suszka, AK; Moutafis, C; Chopdekar, RV; Raabe, J; Thomson, T; Hrkac, Gino; Heyderman, LJ (Nature Publishing Group: Nature Communications, 2015-08-04)
    Vortices are fundamental magnetic topological structures characterized by a curling magnetization around a highly stable nanometric core. The control of the polarization of this core and its gyration is key to the utilization ...
  • Nanoscale temperature measurements using non-equilibrium Brownian dynamics of a levitated nanosphere 

    Millen, J; Deesuwan, T; Barker, P; Anders, Janet (Nature Publishing Group, 2014-05-04)
    Einstein realized that the fluctuations of a Brownian particle can be used to ascertain the properties of its environment. A large number of experiments have since exploited the Brownian motion of colloidal particles for ...
  • 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, 2015-12)
    The issue of Americans’ levels of narcissism is subject to lively debate. The focus of the present research is on the perception of national character (PNC) of Americans as a group. In Study 1, American adults (N = 100) ...
  • Narrating Impact Assessment in the European Union 

    Radaelli, Claudio M.; Dunlop, Claire A.; Fritsch, O (Palgrave, 2013)
    Since 2003, the European Commission has produced analytical documents to appraise and support its policy proposals. These so-called impact assessments (IAs) are now quite common in the preparation of legislation in the ...
