Journal Article
Tomatis, M., Xu, H., He, J., & Zhang, X. (in press). Recent development of catalysts for removal of volatile organic compounds in flue gas by combustion: a review. Journal of Chemistry, 2016, doi:10.1155/2016/8324826

Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) emitted from anthropogenic sources pose direct and indirect hazards to both atmospheric environment and human health due to their contribution to the formation of photochemical smog and potential toxicity including c... Read More

In order to understand the formation and evolution of recurrent severe haze pollution episodes in Yangtze River Delta, China, a short comparative sampling campaign was conducted at the Lin’an background monitoring station from 25 November 2013 to 14... Read More

The SLUGGS survey: chromodynamical modelling of the lenticular galaxy NGC 1023 (2016)
Journal Article
Cortesi, A., Chies-Santos, A. L., Pota, V., Foster, C., Coccato, L., Mendes de Oliveira, C., …Almeida, A. (2016). The SLUGGS survey: chromodynamical modelling of the lenticular galaxy NGC 1023. Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society, 456(3), doi:10.1093/mnras/stv2753. ISSN 0035-8711

Globular clusters (GCs) can be considered discrete, long-lived, dynamical tracers that retain crucial information about the assembly history of their parent galaxy. In this paper, we present a new catalogue of GC velocities and colours for the lentic... Read More

Effect of epigenetic inhibitors on lung fibroblast phenotype change in idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (2016)
Journal Article
Pasini, A., Brand, O. J., Jenkins, G., Knox, A. J., & Pang, L. (2016). Effect of epigenetic inhibitors on lung fibroblast phenotype change in idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis. Thorax, 71(Supp3), doi:10.1136/thoraxjnl-2016-209333.59. ISSN 0040-6376

Introduction and objectives: Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IFP) is a fatal interstitial lung disease with unknown aetiology. Lung myofibroblasts (activated fibrobalsts) are the major effector cells in the pathogenesis of IPF. Transforming growth fac... Read More

The discourse of a ‘smart’ technology: implications for educational practice (2016)
Journal Article
Crook, C. (in press). The discourse of a ‘smart’ technology: implications for educational practice. International Journal of Smart Technology and Learning, 1(1), doi:10.1504/IJSMARTTL.2016.078161. ISSN 2056-404X

The term ‘smart’ has become widely and sometimes carelessly employed in relation to contemporary design. However, in certain areas of cultural practice it also has acquired a more specialised and focussed meaning. One such area is education. The pres... Read More

Experimental realization of a thermal squeezed state of levitated optomechanics (2016)
Journal Article
Rashid, M., Tufarelli, T., Bateman, J., Vovrosh, J., Hempston, D., Kim, M. S., & Ulbricht, H. (in press). Experimental realization of a thermal squeezed state of levitated optomechanics. Physical Review Letters, 117(27), doi:10.1103/PhysRevLett.117.273601. ISSN 0031-9007

We experimentally squeeze the thermal motional state of an optically levitated nanosphere by fast switching between two trapping frequencies. The measured phase-space distribution of the center of mass of our particle shows the typical shape of a squ... Read More

Mechano-chemical manipulation of Sn chains on Si(1 0 0) by NC-AFM (2016)
Journal Article
Sweetman, A., Lekkas, I., & Moriarty, P. (2016). Mechano-chemical manipulation of Sn chains on Si(1 0 0) by NC-AFM. Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter, 29(7), doi:10.1088/1361-648X/29/7/074003. ISSN 0953-8984

We investigate the atomic structure of Sn dimer chains grown on the Si(1 0 0) surface using non-contact atomic force microscopy (NC-AFM) at cryogenic temperatures. We find that similar to the native Si(1 0 0) dimer structure, the ground state of the... Read More
