Which Joe gave his name to ‘sloppy joes’? We look at five interesting sandwiches and their lexical origins.
The fluorescence of an object in an optical microscope when irradiated from the viewing side.
- ‘Animals were allowed to age and were photographed using both Nomarski optics and epifluorescence.’
- ‘Using traditional epifluorescence microscopy, the fluorescence intensity profile can be measured at a particular distance downstream.’
- ‘The structural dynamics of pulmonary surfactant was studied by epifluorescence light microscopy at the air-water interface of a bubble as a model close to nature for an alveolus.’
- ‘The background noise is thus small compared to the background signal, which presumably comes predominantly from stray light in the incident epifluorescence portion of the microscope.’
- ‘For quantification and microphotography, dye filling was evaluated using a Zeiss Standard microscope equipped with epifluorescence.’
We take a look at several popular, though confusing, punctuation marks.
