The effect of planting date on maize: Silage yield, starch content and leaf area
Four field experiments were established in the Waikato and Manawatu regions over two years to determine planting date (PD) influence on growth, silage yield (SY) and starch content of seven maize (Zea mays) hybrids. Silage ...
Rate equation analysis of frequency chirp in optically injection-locked quantum cascade lasers
(Society of Photo-optical Instrumentation Engineers, 2014)
The frequency chirp characteristics of an optically injection-locked quantum cascade laser are theoretically investigated. The key parameter chirp-to-power ratio (CPR) is analytically derived from a full rate equation ...
