Cover of Temperature dependent absorption and emission enhancement factors in plasmon coupled semiconductor heterostructures

Abstract Localized surface plasmon resonances can increase the quantum efficiency of photon emitters through both absorption and spontaneous emission enhancement effects. Despite extensive studies, experimental results that clearly distinguish the

Cover of Possible Link between Biological and Industrial Nitrogen Fixation

Nitrogen is an essential nutrient that is abundantly available in Earth's atmosphere in the form of the dinitrogen (N2) molecule, which cannot be assimilated by plants and animals. Instead, living things must obtain their nitrogen through "nitrogen
