SIC

Standard Industrial Classification

A system of four digit codes used in business to classify the industry to which a company belongs. The SIC was created by the U.S. government in 1937 to facilitate communication within and between businesses and industries. For the most part, the SIC was replaced by the six digit NAICS in 1997, but the SEC still uses the SIC. For example, an oil and gas exploration company might file with the SEC under the code 1382.

In the SICS group the mean increase in CCT on postoperative day 1 was 50.47 [micro] with a standard deviation of 25.087, whereas in the phacoemulsification group the mean increase was 55.98 [micro] on the first postoperative day when compared to the preoperative CCT with a standard deviation of 25.399 (Table 2).
"As an SIC archery member, this facility gives us year-round practice time no matter the weather conditions, and Im excited about the upcoming competition," Lane said.
Adding to the benefits of a local roster, Motsinger believes that personal connections to the team will foster support for SIC from the surrounding communities.
The chemical conversion reaction process in formation of SiC coating on graphite substrate has been accomplished within two reaction zones having different SiO partial pressure in the graphite architecture.
Figure 7 shows the corresponding size distribution of the in situ synthesized SiC particles in the tested samples.
It can also be seen that the three studied SiC polytypes have different peak values of [eta], and the highest [eta] is less than 0.5.
The surface roughness of the SiC interlayer was tested by a Lasertec C130 laser confocal scanning microscope.
Next, 100 nm thick Si film was deposited on each SiC nanoparticle-coated, microtextured Si solar cell sample using a parallel plate PEVCD consisting of an ultra-high-vacuum chamber (base pressure 1 x [10.sup.-9] Torr) and a RF generator (13.56 MHz), connected through a matching network at the top of the reactor electrode.

The lattice matching is 3 : 4 of Ge to SiC with a residual mismatch of 2.60% in the two parallel orientations using the smallest supercell mismatch.
It is well known that it is very difficult to form diffusion between [C.sub.f]/SiC composites owing to the strong covalent bond and the poor deformation ability of the SiC in [C.sub.f]/SiC composites, thus resulting in a weak bonding strength of direct bonding joint (Figure 2(b)).
