Abstract: The mean size of the gold (Au) core in the synthesis of dodecanethiolate-stabilized Au cluster compounds can be finely adjusted by choice of the Au:dodecanethiolate ratio and the temperature and rate at which the reduction is conducted. The Au clusters have been examined with a large number of independent analytical tools, producing a remarkably consistent picture of these materials. Average cluster and core dimensions, as ascertained by 1H NMR line broadening, high-resolution transmission electron microscopy, small-angle X-ray scattering, and thermogravimetric analysis, vary between diameters of 1.5 and 5.2 nm (∼110−4800 Au atoms/core). The electronic properties of the Au core were examined by UV/vis and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy; the core appears to remain largely metallic in nature even at the smallest core sizes examined. The alkanethiolate monolayer stabilizing the Au core ranges with core size from ∼53 to nearly 520 ligands/core, and was probed by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, diff...
TL;DR: This work proposes that the ultimate limit to the attenuation of hollow-core photonic crystal fibres is determined by surface roughness due to frozenin capillary waves, and confirms the wavelength dependence of the minimum loss of fibres drawn to different scales.
Abstract: Hollow-core photonic crystal fibres have excited interest as potential ultra-low loss telecommunications fibres because light propagates mainly in air instead of solid glass. We propose that the ultimate limit to the attenuation of such fibres is determined by surface roughness due to frozenin capillary waves. This is confirmed by measurements of the surface roughness in a HC-PCF, the angular distribution of the power scattered out of the core, and the wavelength dependence of the minimum loss of fibres drawn to different scales.

Abstract: The TILE64TM processor is a multicore SoC targeting the high-performance demands of a wide range of embedded applications across networking and digital multimedia applications. A figure shows a block diagram with 64 tile processors arranged in an 8x8 array. These tiles connect through a scalable 2D mesh network with high-speed I/Os on the periphery. Each general-purpose processor is identical and capable of running SMP Linux.
