Polycrystalline diamond films previously grown on silicon were polished to an RMS roughness of 15 nm and bonded to the silicon in a dedicated ultrahigh vacuum bonding chamber. Successful bonding under a uniaxial mechanical stress of 32 MPa was observed at temperatures as low as 950°C. Scanning acoustic microscopy indicated complete bonding at fusion temperatures above 1150°C. Cross-sectional transmission electron microscopy later revealed a 30 nm thick intermediate amorphous layer consisting of silicon, carbon and oxygen.
The optical degradation of polysilane copolymer has been studied in spin cast thin films and solutions using light source of 325 nm wavelength. The room temperature photoluminescence (PL) spectrum of these films show a sharp emission at 368 nm when excited with a source of 325 nm. However, the PL intensity deteriorates with time upon light exposure. Further the causes of this degradation have been examined by characterizing the material for its transmission behaviour and changes occurring in molecular weight as analysed by GPC data.
A clinicopathological study of 51 cases of adenoid cystic carcinoma in the head and neck region seen over a period of 20 years is presented. The correlation between various histological features and their impact on the results is attempted. Longterm results with respect to loco-regional recurrences, distant metastases and survival with various modalities of therapy are presented. Although this is a small series, radical surgery in keeping with the aim of avoiding undue mutilation, thus preserving the quality of life, followed by a full course of radiotherapy has been the mainstay of treatment and the results here presented justify this approach.
Seed inoculation with Bacillus polymyxa markedly increased the yields of rice and chickpea crops, while Pseudomonas striata caused a greater impact on crop production when used with rock phosphate or super-phosphate in a wheat crop. The effect of the phospho-microbe inoculants was greater in phosphorus-deficient soils.
