- ‘When the field is turned back on, an initially parallel spin will end up antiparallel and vice versa.’
- ‘Electrons that have spins in the antiparallel direction are strongly scattered, which results in a high resistance.’
- ‘The double-stranded helices are either parallel or antiparallel and exist in a variety of conformations of different lengths and numbers of residues per turn.’
- ‘Also no difference in the packing of the hydrophobic core between the parallel and antiparallel orientations was expected.’
- ‘These latter structures can be left- or right-handed, they can be parallel or antiparallel, and they can have a differing number of residues per turn.’
