Immunology basics
This is a module framework. It can be viewed online or downloaded as a zip file. As taught Autumn semester 2009 Infections are a major cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. The body fights infection through the functions of the immune system, whose power has been harnessed by the development of vaccination (immunisation). Suitable for study at: Undergraduate levels 1 and 2. Dr Ian Todd, School of Molecular Medical Sciences Dr Ian Todd is Associate Professor & Reader in Cellular Immunopatho

Fracture surface in a liquid crystalline polymer
Above their melting point, liquid crystalline polymers exhibit a mesophase within which, although able to flow and are not arranged in a crystal, they exhibit long range orientational order. This molecular alignment can be exploited to make high strength and stiffness fibres such as Kevlar, or even mouldable thermotropics such as Vectra. Molecular alignment can also be controlled by an external applied field; a property exploited in liquid crystal displays. This specimen has not had a magnetic f

Physics in architecture
Developed in 1998 by Dr John Whittle (Department of the Built Environment) using Authorware, this package contains brief interactive notes on eight areas of physics in which architects need a working knowledge. However, it is also useful to others in science, engineering and social sciences looking for an introduction to the topics concerned. These topics are: Units of measurement; Scalar and vector quantities; Newton’s laws; Mass and weight; Action and reaction; Waves; Heat, work and energy;

Fe, C 0.5 (wt%) steel, near a decarburised surface
This is a hypoeutectoid steel (one that has a carbon composition below that of the eutectoid). During original cooling from high temperature, some ferrite was formed first on the prior austenite grain boundaries and the remaining carbon-enriched austenite then transformed to pearlite in a eutectoid reaction. The specimen was then exposed to a decarburising atmosphere (just air in this case). This might happen inadvertently, or it could be done deliberately if a softer surface is required for som

Spherulite in poly-3-hydroxy butyrate (PHB)
Polymer melts often crystallise from heterogeneous nuclei to form ribbon-like lamellae, which have a folded chain molecular structure. They commonly radiate outwards from the nucleation point, to form spherical features called spherulites - which are often quite large. The characteristic Maltese cross pattern, seen when viewed between crossed polars, results from isoclinic fringes formed when one of the principal vibration directions is approximately parallel to the polariser. In some cases (inc
