  • Caveolae in Rabbit Ventricular Cardiomyocytes: Distribution and Dynamic Diminution after Cell Isolation 

    Burton, RAB; Rog-Zielinska, EA; Corbett, AD; Peyronnet, RPJ; Bodi, I; Fink, M; Sheldon, J; Hoenger, A; Calaghan, S; Bub, G; Kohl, P (Biophysical Society, 2017)
    Introduction: Caveolae are signal transduction centres, yet their subcellular distribution and preservation in cardiac myocytes after cell-isolation are not well documented. Here, we quantify caveolae, located within 100 ...

  • Localization of massless Dirac particles via spatial modulations of the Fermi velocity 

    Downing, CA; Portnoi, ME (IOP Publishing, 2017-07-07)
    The electrons found in Dirac materials are notorious for being difficult to manipulate due to the Klein phenomenon and absence of backscattering. Here we investigate how spatial modulations of the Fermi velocity in ...

  • Entropy production and time asymmetry in the presence of strong interactions 

    Anders, J; Miller, H (American Physical Society, 2017-06-19)
    It is known that the equilibrium properties of open classical systems that are strongly coupled to a heat bath are described by a set of thermodynamic potentials related to the system's Hamiltonian of mean force. By adapting ...

    Wilson, TJ; Naylor, T (Oxford University Press (OUP) / Royal Astronomical Society, 2017-07)
    A fundamental process in astrophysics is the matching of two photometric catalogues. It is crucial that the correct objects be paired, and that their photometry does not suffer from any spurious additional flux. We compare ...
