The hygroscopic properties of aerosol govern the response of aerosol particle size and composition to the relative humidity of the gas phase. The data sets in this project are accumulated from single particle measurements of hygroscopic response made at the Bristol Aerosol Research Centre. Here, we include data for the publication: Journal of Physical Chemistry A (2016) Accurate Measurements of Aerosol Hygroscopic Growth Over a Wide Range in Relative Humidity Grazia Rovelli [1,2], Rachael E.H....
The BiB study investigated the benefits of an affective physical interaction with a humanoid robot by comparing an expressive and communicative condition with a faster, less error prone but non-communicative one. The BiB study was conducted as part of the Trustworthy Robotic Assistants (ROBOSAFE) project. Preferred data citation: Adriana Hamacher, Nadia Bianchi-Berthouze, Anthony G.

Data supporting paper in Soft Matter by WJ Ganley and JS van Duijneveldt
These data are results of a cross sectional study of nasopharyngeal bacterial colonisation of a group of healthy pre-school children from Coimbra, Portugal who had nasal swabs taken at nursery school in March 2011. The swabs were analysed by real time quantitative PCR for S. pneumoniae using primers specific to the pneumococcal gene (LytA) for autolysin. In addition samples in which S. pneumoniae was detected underwent microarray analysis for different capsular gene loci, permitting detection...

This study investigated whether volume information on curved glasses alters the time taken to consume an alcoholic beverage. Participants (n = 159) were asked to drink low or standard strength lager from either a curved glass marked at midpoint with a band of yellow tape or an unmarked curved glass. Time to consume the drink was recorded. Data are restricted access for this study as participants were consented under procedures that did not include consent...

Data supporting publication in Langmuir by WJ Ganley and JS van Duijneveldt
Alkylaminium sulphates originate from the neutralisation reaction between short-chained amines and sulphuric acid and have been detected in atmospheric aerosol particles. Their physicochemical behaviour is less well characterised than their inorganic equivalent, ammonium sulphate, even though they play a role in atmospheric processes such as the nucleation and growth of new particles and cloud droplet formation. In this work, a comparative evaporation kinetics experimental technique using a cylindrical electrodynamic balance is applied to determine the...

Impaired recognition of basic emotions from facial expressions in young people with autism spectrum disorder: assessing the importance of expression intensitySarah Griffiths & Marcus Munafo
This study investigated recognition of facial expressions of emotion at different intensity levels by young people (6-16 years) with and without autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Study tasks were completed by participants on an Internet platform.

A Complete Parameterization of the Relative Humidity and Wavelength Dependence of the Refractive Index of Hygroscopic Inorganic Aerosol Particles (Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics 2017)Bryan Bzdek, Rose Willoughby, Andrew Orr-Ewing & Jonathan Reid
Calculations of aerosol radiative forcing require knowledge of wavelength-dependent aerosol optical properties, such as single scattering albedo. These aerosol optical properties can be calculated using Mie theory from knowledge of the key microphysical properties of particle size and refractive index, assuming that atmospheric particles are well-approximated to be spherical and homogeneous. We provide refractive index determinations for aqueous aerosol particles containing the key atmospherically relevant inorganic solutes of NaCl, NaNO3, (NH4)2SO4, NH4HSO4 and Na2SO4, reporting...
The following data accompanies the paper "Binary and Ternary Mixtures of Microgel Particles, Hard Spheres and Non-adsorbing Polymer in Non-aqueous Solvents" by J A Bonham, M A Faers and J S van Duijneveldt.
Entanglement is the basic building block of linear optical quantum computation, and as such understanding how to generate it in detail is of great importance for optical architectures. We prove that Bell states cannot be generated using only 3 photons in the dual-rail encoding, and give strong numerical evidence for the optimality of the existing 4 photon schemes. In a setup with a single photon in each input mode, we find a fundamental limit on...
