12.141 Electron Microprobe Analysis (MIT)
The electron microprobe provides a complete micrometer-scale quantitative chemical analysis of inorganic solids. The method is nondestructive and utilizes characteristic X-rays excited by an electron beam incident on a flat surface of the sample. This course provides an introduction to the theory of X-ray microanalysis through wavelength and energy dispersive spectrometry (WDS and EDS), ZAF matrix correction procedures and scanning electron imaging with back-scattered electron (BSE), secondary e
21F.068J The Invention of French Theory: A History of Transatlantic Intellectual Life since 1945 (MI
In the decades following the Second World War, a cluster of extraordinary French thinkers were widely translated and read in American universities. Their works were soon labeled as "French Theory." Why would sharing the same nationality make authors such as Lacan, Cixous, Derrida, Foucault or Debord, ambassadors of a specifically "French" theory? The course will explore the maze of transatlantic intellectual debates since 1945 and the heyday of French existentialism. We will
Modelling for Virtual Reality in Architecture
CAAD systems are using object modelling methods for building databases to make information available. Object data must then be made useful for many different purposes in the design process. Even if the capacity of the computer will allow an almost unlimited amount of information to be transformed, the eye does not make the transformations in the same ?simple? mathematical way. Trained architects have to involve in an inventive process of finding ways to ?harmonize? this new medium with the human

Researching solutions to global water shortages
Director of the University of Nottingham’s Centre for Clean Water Technologies. Making sure the world’s population has enough drinking water is one of the biggest challenges we face today. A rapidly increasing global population, the fact that only a very small percentage of global water is available for consumption and an uneven global distribution of clean drinking water are the main problems in regard to the current global water crisis. Professor Hilal discusses these problems and some o
2.1.1 What do we mean by 'infect'? A virus will attach itself in various ways to a file that already exists on a 'host' computer, and when that file is run, the virus activates as well. A computer virus works in a similar way to a biological virus. Biological virus: an infectious agent of small size and simple composition that can multiply only in living cells of animals, plants or bacteria.

Because of the fine scale of the droplet, heat extraction is very rapid, and large undercoolings are achieved before crystal nucleation can begin. Thus, in this droplet, the solidification front has advanced very rapidly through the droplet from the nucleation point (on the surface at the left of the image). Its velocity is initially so great that no interfacial breakdown is possible. As the front advances, however, latent heat is evolved and this 'recalescence' reduces the rate of solidifica
