Only young bulls that received supplements with high protein (HPHC and HPLC) had greater (p<0.05) intake of DM than control young bulls in the suckling phase (phase 1).
Figure 1(a) shows the schematic diagram of the proposed HPhC waveguide, and the inset on the left-bottom corner shows the cross section.
From Figure 1(b) we can see that the HPhC waveguide with [DELTA] = 35 nm has the most flat dispersion in the leaky mode region, while the one with [DELTA] = 60 nm has the larger bandwidth.
