New statistical technique improves precision of nanotechnology data
... "The curves should have been symmetric. To address this issue, we developed a new modeling technique that uses the data itself to filter out the mismatch
step-by-step using the regression technique."
Ideally, researchers would search out and correct the experimental causes of these data errors, but ...

Using a grating with a grade, engineers trap a rainbow
But light is more difficult to control at the nanoscale because of natural limits on its diffraction, or ability to resolve.
"There is a mismatch
between nanoelectronics and nanophotonics," says Gan. "Because of the diffraction limit of light, optical circuits are now much larger than their ...

Fast Track: Topics for Consideration
... discoveries is creating a tremendous strain on the technical and scientific capabilities of the agency. One reason for this strain is the frequent mismatch
between FDA expertise and new product development. Another reason is that FDA reviewers often are isolated from new scientific and technical ...
Using the SpectraMax Plus for USP Dissolution Calibration (MaxLine Application Note #27)
... absorbance of Costar wells containing water is approximately .039 to .049 OD. Thus, for samples having raw absorbance values of 1 OD, the worst-case mismatch
between plates would still produce an error of 1% or less. However, the lower the absorbance values of the samples, the greater the maximum potential ...
