7.3.5 Ion beam deposition

PVD still has some limitations, however. It must operate in a gaseous atmosphere (to provide the plasma) so is not well suited to the long-throw, directional line-of-sight mode accessible to low-pressure evaporation. Also, if magnets behind the target are used to generate a magnetic field for magnetron sputtering the technique cannot be easily used to deposit magnetic metals such as nickel and cobalt, owing to the influence from the magnetic field on the deposition process.

Resolving some Ambiguities in Real-time Design Drawing Recognition by means of a Decision Tree for A
In this paper, we present a theoretical study on automated understanding of the design drawing. This can lead to design support through the natural interface of sketching. In earlier work, 24 plan-based conventions of depiction have been identified, such as grid, zone, axial system, contour, and element vocabulary. These are termed graphic units. Graphic units form a good basis for recognition of drawings as they combine shape with meaning. We present some of the theoretical questions that have

Viruses (An Overview)
A virus is a nucleic acid encased in a protein shell and is inactive except within a host cell. Viruses penetrate host cells and inject their genetic information in the form of DNA or RNA. In the litic cycle, the virus uses the cell's functions to replicate its genetic information and create more viruses. In the lysogenic cycle, the virus leaves its genetic material dormant inside the cell as the cell reproduces until environmental conditions rev

Forsaking all others: towards a new model of nationalism utilizing the case study of former Yugoslav
Many people would like to believe that nationalism is a thing of the past, a dinosaur belonging to some bygone, uncivilized era. Such a belief is not borne out by recent history, however.

The purpose of this study is to explore individual motivations involved in the rise of nationalism, in addition to the role of structural factors. The linkage employed in this exploration is the p
