Measurement of Complex Index of Refraction by Filmetrics

Report from a laboratory experiment conducted on 28 March 2013


Graduate Student

Date of Report: 25 April 2013

Filmetrics can calculate the complex index of refraction as a function of light wavelength from the light transmission and reflection measurement data. The thin films must be smooth and flat in order to measure reflectance and transmittance. In this laboratory experiment we will record the reflectance and transmittance of the light through a thin film semiconducting polymer Poly(3-hexylthiophene-2,5-diyl) (P3HT) doped with PCBM ( fullerene C61) used for optoelectronic applications (solar cells, for example). We will record the front panel with the display of the reflectance and transmittance measurement and the calculated n(λ) and ((λ) by the built in numerical method. We will also calculate ((λ) from the ((λ) and plot the graph for ((λ). From the ((λ) we will find the value of cut off wave length and find the energy band gap.

Specail Need partner (Kenton, Yarnall, 2005). The person in the function of HR Business Partner must meet relatively high requirements. Good work in this role requires both a detailed understanding of the business from operating and financial perspectives and understanding of the strategic aspects of the organization and ways of realization of the strategy within organization mainly from the perspective of human resources (Lawler, 2005). As mentioned above, HR Business Partner should influence decisions concerning human resources. He should also be able to suggest a suitable HR strategy, based on the correct estimation of the future development of the organization and its implications for human resources (Armstrong, 2005). To his decision making he needs a lot of information. Therefore, it is crucial for him to be accepted by others in the team of managers. For this reason, HR Business Partner should be able to correctly set up the process of defining, monitoring, comprehensible reporting and evaluation of the impact of human resources on the business of the organization in order to convince managers about the meaningfulness of his role (Svoboda, Schroder, 2001). Researches show that the view of the role of human resources in organization is really changing 134 Marek Stritesky / Procedia - Social and Behavioral Sciences 110 (2014) 130 – 139 nowadays.

His Needs, Her Needs

...His Needs, Her Needs: Building An Affair-Proof Marriage by Willard F. Harley, Jr. A Paper Submitted to Dr. Brown In Partial Fulfillment Of the Requirements for the Course Preventing Ministry Failure LEAD 625 By Adrian Mack 27 January 2014 CONTENTS SUMMARY 2 CRITIQUE 3 EVALUATION 4 Summary In His Needs, Her Needs, Willard F. Harley, Jr. is not solely talking about affairs, but is elaborating on the underlying themes of communication and selflessness. In the first chapter, Harley explains that when a person explains their relationship problems to someone external to the relationship, it can easily lead to an affair because a bond forms with this new person and he or she understands the needs that one yearns for in their life, time and again able to meet the needs if an affair begins (Harley 20). During his tenure counseling couples, Dr. Harley has recognized that men and women each have unique preferences in regards to their needs, and often differing perspectives on how the relationship would be “perfect.” Harley conceptualizes this with his analogy of a bank. Hence, communication, both talking and listening about problems and needs, is not the only necessary means to improve a relationship, but one must be willing to make the relationship work by considering not only themselves, but their significant other. For Harley, it is not about whether or not one is “skilled” at fulfilling their significant other’s needs or......

...Information need is an individual or group's desire to locate and obtain information to satisfy a conscious or unconscious need. The ‘information’ and ‘need’ in ‘information need’ are an inseparable interconnection. Needs and interests call forth information. The objectives of studying information needs are: 1. The explanation of observed phenomena of information use or expressed need; 2. The prediction of instances of information uses; 3. The control and thereby improvement of the utilization of information manipulation of essentials conditions. A system is a set of interrelated but separate parts working towards a common purpose. The arrangement must be orderly and there must be proper communication facilitating interaction between the elements and finally this interaction should lead to achieve a common goal. System approach to management views the organization as a unified, purposeful system composed of interrelated parts. This approach also gives the manager to see the organization as a whole and as a part of the larger external environment. System oriented manager would make decisions only after they have identified impact of these decisions on all other departments and the entire organization. They must intertwine their department with the total organization and communicate with all other departments, employees and with each other. * Characteristics: Systems have structure, defined by parts and their composition; * Systems have behavior,......

Psychological Needs

...Psychological Needs Paper Crystal Johndrow PSY/211 Sept 22, 2014 Susan Hull Psychological Needs Paper Maslow seemed to believe that once a person’s basic biological needs were met new higher psychological needs would emerge in order to motivate human behavior. He believed that people are innately motivated to satisfy a progression of needs beginning with the basic needs like food, water, warmth, rest, security, and safety. After these needs are met a person is motivated to fulfill their psychological needs as in intimate relationships, friends, prestige and feeling of accomplishment. Finally a person reaches their ultimate goal of self-fulfillment needs which includes achieving one’s full potential, including creative activities. Once I learned about Maslow’s hierarchy and begun to understand his theory and the way he perceived human motivation and needs I began to understand and was able to make sense of it. I believe that if mankind had no motivation then life would cease to exist. A person experiences basic motivation for the needs to sustain life such as food and water. Without motivation to fulfill the most basic of needs there would be no motivation to fulfill other needs such as achieving one’s full potential which is what I believe separates mankind from the animals. A person needs motivation in order to go for something in their life. Some people seem to have more motivation than others and are able to accomplish more during their life and get the......

Psychological Needs

...Psychological Needs Ron Mckenna PSY/211 November 18, 2013 University of Phoenix Psychological Needs Abraham Maslow created a hierarchy of needs with the most common of the needs being the basis for his hierarchy. The basic needs are food water warmth and rest, the basic needs. The next tier of Maslow’s chain of needs are safety, the need to feel safe and secure. This concludes the first tier of Maslow’s hierarchy as basic needs. The second tier that Maslow are called psychological needs and include belonging and the need to feel love. The next level is esteem need and the need to feel accomplishment. The last and final tier is his self-fulfillment category which contains self-actualization and feeling of being the best a person can be. I agree with Maslow’s hierarchy and that the most of common needs should be the basis of everything else. Without the common needs one could not achieve the main goal in life. Once the basic need in life have been covered you could go after that second tier and find love and belonging and having the basic needs to fall back on just in case. Now you have your basic need and psychological needs you could strive for the top tier and being what you are meant to be. Maslow’s hierarchy relates to motivation for the fact that what is at the core of everyone are the basic needs. Survival is the same way physical and psychological witch can be a great motivator. Say one was at their fullest and top tier knowing how to get the fulfillment out......

Needs and Assessment

...Need is an important concept in social work and it is sometimes difficult to define. According to the Oxford dictionary, ‘need is defined as requiring something because it is essential or very important rather than just desirable.’ Doyal and Gough (1991), define need in terms of physical survival and personal autonomy. However, some would argue that there are basic needs for economic and physical security, accommodation, food, clothing and social relationships that must be met in a civilised society but there is a relative dimension to need also. Therefore, what is seen as adequate in terms of meeting basic needs and the means through which they can be met, will vary over time, both historically and over the life course, as well as across different cultures. These definitions has led to focusing on two different approaches to understanding the concept of need. The first is Abraham Maslow’s hierarchy of needs (1943). Maslow’s hierarchy is commonly displayed in a pyramid fashion, with the basic needs at the bottom and the higher needs at the top. The needs were depicted in this way to show the significance of each need on the others, with the most significant and broadest category being the physiological needs at the base (Redmond, 2010). Maslow’s Basic-Order Needs: Physiological needs are basic needs that are necessary for one’s survival, such as food, oxygen, shelter and sleep. These needs must be met before moving to satisfy needs higher in order. Safety needs includes......

Hierarchy of Needs

...biological and social needs that integrates many motivational concepts. According to Maslow individual needs are set in a hierarchy, and everyone must satisfy their basic needs before they can satisfy their higher needs. The hierarchy is portrayed as a pyramid beginning with physiological needs at the bottom and self-actualization at the top. The 'Hierarchy of Needs' theory has four different levels before one can come to full self-actualizing. Beginning with the most basic, the needs are physiological, safety, love and belonging, esteem and lastly, self-actualization. Physiological needs refer to the literal requirements for human survival, such as breathing, food, water, sleep, and metabolic activities. Safety needs are all things providing humans with a sense of security, such as protection from the elements, financial stability and personal health. Furthermore, love and belonging refers to the interpersonal relationship, in which relationships with family, friends, lovers, and others are drawn; providing humans with a sense of acceptance and attachments. Esteem refers to the need to be respected and accepted and, most importantly, the need of self-respect. People develop their esteem as they are recognized by others, gaining a certain level of social status and thus build their own self-respect. The last is about the self-actualization, in which an individual realizes his or her potentials. Because the human brain is driven by a basic instinct to survive, this need......

Additional Needs

...Barriers experienced with additional needs Discrimination There are 4 types of disability discrimination: direct discrimination, failure to make reasonable adjustments, disability related discrimination and victimisation. (The Equality Act, 2010) Direct discrimination Direct discrimination occurs when a disabled person is treated less favourably than someone else, who has similar circumstances and abilities or the treatment is for a reason relating to the person’s disability. Failure to make reasonable adjustments An employer, education provider or service provider has a duty to make reasonable adjustments where a provision, criterion or practice, or any physical feature of premises occupied by them, places a disabled person at a substantial disadvantage compared with people who are not disabled. Disability-related discrimination This form of discrimination refers to treatment of a disabled person that: • is unlawful because it is for a reason related to a disability; • is less favourable than the way in which others, to whom that reason doesn’t apply, are treated • the employer cannot show that the treatment is justified Victimisation Victimisation is outlawed by the DDA. It says that a person should not be treated less favourably because they have, brought legal action under the DDA (eg at an employment tribunal, or other body), or given evidence in such an action or done anything else relating to such an action, such as supporting the person taking...

Needs and Want

...Needs wants and demands are a part of basic marketing principles. Though they are 3 simple worlds, they hold a very complex meaning behind them along with a huge differentiation factor. In fact, A product can be differentiated on the basis of whether it satisfies a customers needs, wants or demands. Each of them is discussed in detail in this article Needs -Human needs are the basic requirements and include food clothing and shelter. Without these humans cannot survive. An extended part of needs today has become education and healthcare. Generally, the products which fall under the needs category of products do not require a push. Instead the customer buys it themselves. But in todays tough and competitive world, so many brands have come up with the same offering satisfying the needs of the customer, that even the “needs category product” has to be pushed in the customers mind. Example of needs category products / sectors – Agriculture sector, Real Estate (land always appreciates), FMCG, etc. Wants – Wants are a step ahead of needs and are largely dependent on the needs of humans themselves. For example, you need to take a bath. But i am sure you take baths with the best soaps. Thus Wants are not mandatory part of life. You DONT need a good smelling soap. But you will definitely use it because it is your want.

...Thinking... The conceptual background to strategy, marketing and planning Stephen Cashman, February 2003 This online background paper provides a review of some of the definitions, theories and concepts underpinning strategy. As such it is intended to introduce the key concepts involved, or to form an overall reminder of the various issues relating to these areas. 1. What is strategy about and why is it so important? ‘Every company needs a strategy – either explicit or implicit.’ Costas Markides (1995) ‘An effective strategic management process has become the essential norm for businesses.’ Richard Hanscombe and Philip Norman (1993) ‘Effective strategic management is the ultimate aim of all managers.’ Financial Times, 1997 ‘The survival, growth and prosperity of any organisation depends on the quality and viability of the strategy the organisation is pursuing.’ Andrew Kakabadse, Ron Ludlow and Susan Vinicombe (1988) Indeed, such is the importance attached to the subject of strategy that one commentator on the subject, Richard Whittington (1993), reports that ‘there are thirty-seven books in print with the title Strategic Management’. Similarly a leading strategy thinker, Henry Mintzberg, and his colleagues (1998) note that ‘The literature of strategic management is vast – the number of items we reviewed over the years numbers close to 2,000 – and it grows larger every day.’ However, despite the importance given to them, thinking, writing and talking about......
