Minimal U(1)′ extension of the minimal supersymmetric standard model
(American Physical Society, 2005-07)
Motivated by the apparent need for extending the minimal supersymmetric standard model (MSSM) and perhaps mitigating naturalness problems associated with the μ parameter and fine-tuning of the soft masses, we augment the ...
Determination of octane number of gasoline using near infrared spectroscopy and genetic multivariate calibration methods
(Taylor & Francis, 2005-09)
The feasibility of rating the octane number of gasoline using near infrared (NIR) spectroscopy and three different genetic algorithm-based multivariate calibration methods was demonstrated. The three genetic multivariate ...
Search for supersymmetry in events with a photon, a lepton, and missing transverse momentum in pp collisions at √s=8 TeV
A search for supersymmetry involving events with at least one photon, one electron or muon, and large missing transverse momentum has been performed by the CMS experiment. The data sample corresponds to an integrated ...
Inflation with non-minimal coupling: Metric vs. Palatini formulations
We analyze non-minimally coupled scalar field theories in metric (second-order) and Palatini (first-order) formalisms in a comparative fashion. After contrasting them in a general setup, we specialize to inflation and find ...
Proteomic changes during boron tolerance in barley (Hordeum vulgare) and the role of vacuolar proton-translocating ATPase subunit E
Boron is an essential micronutrient for plants and animals; however, it can be toxic when present at high concentrations. The purpose of this study was to understand the mechanisms of boron tolerance in the Turkish barley ...
Effects of humic acid on root development and nutrient uptake of Vicia faba L. (Broad Bean) seedlings grown under aluminum toxicity
(Taylor & Francis, 2015-02)
Interactions of humic acid with development and uptake by seedlings of Vicia faba L., (cv. Eresen 87) grown in conditions of aluminium toxicity have been investigated in pot experiments in a controlled greenhouse environment. ...
Synthesis and anticancer activity evaluation of new isoindole analogues
We have developed a versatile synthetic approach for the synthesis of new isoindole derivatives via the cleavage of ethers from tricyclic imide skeleton compounds. An exo-cycloadduct prepared from the Diels–Alder reaction ...
Modeling study of the dip-hump feature in Bi2 Sr2 CaCu2 O8+δ tunneling spectroscopy
(American Physical Society, 2006)
The tunneling spectra of high-temperature superconductors on Bi2 Sr2 CaCu2 O8+δ (Bi-2212) reproducibly show a high-bias structure in the form of a dip-hump at voltages higher than the gap voltage. Of central concern is ...
Growth and characterization of CdTe absorbers on GaAs by MBE for high concentration PV solar cells
CdTe based II-VI absorbers are promising candidates for high concentration PV solar cells with an ideal band gap for AM1.5 solar radiation. In this study, we propose single crystal CdTe absorbers grown on GaAs substrates ...
Rhodium-catalysed alkoxycarbonylative cyclisation reactions of 1,6-enynes
(Wiley-VCH Verlag, 2011-04)
The rhodium-catalysed carbonylation of 1,6-enynes possessing an electron-deficient alkenyl moiety in an alcohol reagent in the presence of a rhodium complex proceeded stereo- and chemoselectively to afford exocyclic α,β-enoates.
