And when eyes are not gazing skyward, families find an abundance of attractions on the ground: actually getting to climb inside expertly restored, World War II bombers and massive, contemporary military transport aircraft; experiencing the thrill of virtual-reality flight simulators; and meeting and taking photos with all manner of air show performers. "The richness of an air show experience for a family is like cramming a visit to a sporting event, an amusement park, and a circus into a single day," says John Cudahy, president of the International Council of Air Shows (ICAS). "From a family-entertainment perspective, there is no better bargain on the planet." For comparison purposes, ICAS estimates the cost for the average family of four to attend an air show in 2016 to be $135, which includes admission, parking, a hot dog, a beverage, and two souvenirs for the kids. By contrast, using the same criteria, the average cost for attending a major league sporting event in 2016, according to Team Marketing Report, appears below. The cost of an air show begins with an average adult ticket price of $17.50 ($7.50 for a child), which compares to $29.94 for an MLB game, $47.00 for a non-Disney theme park, $53.98 for an NBA game, $62.12 for an NHL game, $85.53 for an NFL game, $96.00 for a NASCAR race, $101.00 for a Disney theme park, and $104.46 for a Broadway musical. And cost is just the beginning of what differentiates a day at an air show from other experiences, according to Cudahy. "The food is plentiful and it's good. The lines are shorter. And the range of activities and programs allow you to move around and have a variety of experiences in a single day. Air shows are patriotic. They're exciting. They're educational. They're multi-sensory. And the combination makes air shows a fun and memorable experience for everyone in the family." About the International Council of Air Shows Headquartered in Leesburg, Va., ICAS was founded in 1967 as a trade and professional association by industry professionals to protect and promote their interests in the growing North American air show marketplace.

To improve the magnetic and ferroelectric behavior of LaFeO3 (LFO), co-doping with Dy3+ and Ti4+ are considered and structural, magnetic, dielectric and ferroelectric properties are investigated. Samples of LFO and La(1-x)DyxFe(1-y)TiyO3 (for x/y = 0.02, LDFTO1; 0.04, LDFTO2 and 0.1, LDFTO) are prepared by conventional solid state reaction method. Here we have chosen two ions of Dy3+ and Ti4+ as dopants where the first one can enhance the magnetic moment as its free ion magnetic moment is quite high and the second one may enhance the ferroelectric component through structural and/or charge misbalance. The crystallographic phase of each sample is confirmed by analyzing the X-ray diffraction pattern (XRD) recorded at room temperature (RT) by Rietveld method using MAUD program. Rietveld analyses of LFO, LDFTO1, LDFTO2 and LDFTO reveals that a compressive lattice distortion is induced due to the co-substitution of Dy3+ and Ti4+ ions at the A and B sites, respectively. Though Rietveld analyses of the XRD patterns of all the doped samples confirmed the solubility of the dopants in the host lattice of LFO but dielectric and ferroelectric response of LDFTO1 and LDFTO2 is quite poor compared to that of LDFTO. Due to this fact the detailed investigations are carried out for LDFTO, only. Raman spectra of LFO and LDFTO recorded at RT and the observed data are analyzed to extract different useful information. Hysteresis loops of LFO and LDFTO recorded at 300 and 5 K in vibration sample magnetometer show enhanced magnetization of LDFTO compared to that of LFO. The magnetization vs. temperature recorded under zero field cooled (ZFC) and field cooled (FC) conditions exhibit an antiferromagnetic to ferromagnetic phase transition below ∼85 K which is attributed to the substitution of Dy3+ ions in LFO. Dielectric properties in the temperature range of 300–900 K of LFO and LDFTO measured in the frequency range of 1 KHz-5 MHz revealed that the value of dielectric constant (ε′) increases and the dielectric loss (tanδ) decreases compared to that of LFO. This suggests that the resistivity of the co-doped sample increases and conductivity decreases. The thermal variation of dielectric constant clearly indicate a transition from ferroelectric to paraelectric phase at and above ∼670 K. Polarization vs. electric field (P-E) loops for both the samples of LFO and LDFTO recorded at 300 K clearly indicates that the PE loops of LDFTO are quite impressive compared to that of LFO. © 2017 Elsevier B.V.

Actually, the ITER (International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor) project mission is to endow the scientific and engineering feasibility for fusion energy. Built LHC (Large Hadron Collider) at CERN, ITER has become the largest project in applied superconductivity and, besides its technical complexity, ITER represent a management challenge as it bases on a unique worldwide collaboration of seven partners (China, EU, India, Japan, US, Russia and South Korea), who provide 90% of the components as in-kind contributions. Among ITER components, magnet system for plasma confinement is one of the most complex and advanced superconducting magnet systems ever designed, and its production is involving six of the ITER partners (all but India). In the following, quality assurance/quality control programs that have been implemented by ITER Organization (IO) to ensure conductor production uniformity and full traceability of intermediate assemblies across numerous suppliers will be illustrated.

Multiferroic (MF) nanoparticles of GaFeO3 (GFO) were prepared by sol-gel method. To modulate the magneto-dielectric property, nanoparticles of GFO are incorporated in Ni0.40Zn0.40Cu 0.20Fe2O4 (NZCF). Crystallographic phases of all the samples are confirmed by analyzing the X-ray diffractograms using FULLPROF program. The hysteretic behavior observed in the polarization vs. electric field loops recorded at room temperature (RT) confirmed the ferroelectric ordering of GFO and (GaFeO3)0.50(Ni 0.40Zn0.40Cu0.20Fe2O 4)0.50 (GFO-NZCF). Temperature dependent dielectric constant of GFO and GFO-NZCF shows the ferroelectric to paraelectric transition at 625 and 680 K, respectively. The dielectric constant measured in presence and absence of magnetic field confirmed that the samples are MFs with positive magneto-capacitance (MC) co-efficient. Interestingly, electric polarization and MC co-efficient of GFO are increased in GFO-NZCF. Room temperature Raman spectra of GFO and NZCF have been compared with that of GFO-NZCF and the observed changes have been co-related with the enhanced polarization of GFO-NZCF. © 2014 Elsevier B.V.

To enhance the magnetic property of LaFeO3 (LFO), a well known antiferromagnetic multiferroic, Ho3+ doping [La0.9Ho0.1FeO3 (LHFO)] is considered using solid state reaction method. The crystallographic phase is confirmed by Rietveld analysis of X-ray diffractograms. Raman spectra observed at room temperature also ruled out the formation of any impurity phase. Magnetisation vs. field loops of LHFO recorded at different temperatures in the range of 300-5 K show considerable enhancement of magnetization of LHFO compared to that of LFO. MH loops recorded at low temperatures suggests antiferromagnetic to ferromagnetic transition in LHFO which is also in agreement with the measurements of magnetisation vs. temperature curve under zero field cooled and field cooled conditions. Modulation of magnetic behaviour in LHFO compared to that of LFO will enhance the quality of application in electronic devices. © 2016 Published by Elsevier B.V.
