2.8 Iodine (I)

Iodide ions (I) derived, like all mineral elements, from the breakdown of rocks, is present in some soils, but much of it has been dissolved out by water over millions of years and washed down into the sea. It is concentrated by some marine organisms, and so can occur at quite high concentrations in edible seaweed, and in fish and other seafood. Thus people living near coasts often have sufficient iodine in their diet, whereas those living in mountainous areas, such as the Himal

2.7 Fluorine (F)

Fluoride ions (F) are rare in foods, though some are found in tea and in seafood. However, fluoride does occur naturally in some water supplies, derived from the rocks through which the water flows. Its only role in the body appears to be to help to protect teeth from decay.

The stages of tooth decay are as follows:

  • bacteria live in saliva on teeth (form plaque)

  • produce lactic acid → dissolves calcium salts in tooth

Computational GRIDs and online laboratories
Many projects addressing the creation of online laboratories have been developed recently. They have a common goal: to enable students and professional learners to get hands-on experience without moving from the places where they are. Nevertheless, the found solutions are often very different among them, and interoperability between different online laboratories systems does not exist. In this paper we present our work around the exploitation of Grid technologies for sharing instrumentation and

Quantum Transport: Atom to Transistor
The development of "nanotechnology" has made it possible to engineer materials and devices on a length scale as small as several nanometers (atomic distances are ~ 0.1 nm). The properties of such "nanostructures" cannot be described in terms of macroscopic parameters like mobility and diffusion coefficient and a microscopic or atomistic viewpoint is called for. The purpose of this course is to convey the conceptual framework that underlies this microscopic theory of matter which developed in cou
