The FSSCAT mission is expected to be launched onboard of the Vega SSMS Maiden Flight in mid 2019. In addition to its remote sensing objectives, the mission will demonstrate for the first time worldwide a reliable optical intersatellite link (O-ISL) between two 6U CubeSats flying in Low Earth Orbit (LEO). We have developed a technology ... Read more about "Overview of the FSSCAT Optical Intersatellite Link (O-ISL) - Technology Demonstration"

Understanding how nucleic acids and proteins interact to regulate key cellular processes requires the ability to observe these interactions directly. The dynamic nature of many nucleic acid-protein interactions makes it challenging to study them with traditional bulk methods. Biochemical, molecular or cellular biology approaches yield ensemble- or population-averaged results, which may conceal key short-lived or ...

Protein folding research has been dominated by the assumption that thermodynamics determines protein structure and function. And that when the folding process is compromised, the proteostasis machinery of cells - chaperones, deaggregases, the proteasome - work to restore proteins to their soluble, functional form or degrade them to maintain the cellular pool of proteins in ...

Chemical Engineering Seminar - Charge and excited state dynamics in 3D and 2D hybrid perovskites.Bridging Molecular and Heterogeneous Electrocatalysis Through Graphite Conjugation.
The efficient interconversion of electrical and chemical energy requires catalysts capable of accelerating complex multi-electron reactions at electrified interfaces. These reactions can be carried out at the metallic surface sites of heterogeneous electrocatalysts or via redox mediation at molecular electrocatalysts. Molecular catalysts yield readily to synthetic alteration of their redox properties and secondary coordination sphere, ...

We give a brief overview of some aspects of quantum fields in a de Sitter background, from several perspectives. We discuss recent progress on a higher spin model of de Sitter space, including the structure of its Hilbert space, and microscopic operator content.
