The term experiment is defined as the systematic procedure carried out under controlled conditions in order to discover an unknown effect, to test or establish a hypothesis, or to illustrate a known effect. When analyzing a process, experiments are often used to evaluate which process inputs have a significant impact on the process output, and what the target level of those inputs should be to achieve a desired result (output). Experiments can be designed in many different ways to collect this information. Design of Experiments (DOE) is also referred to as Designed Experiments or Experimental Design - all of the terms have the same meaning.

The smartphone is one of the most empowering and intimate objects in our lives. Yet most of us have little say in how the device is made, what it does, and how it looks. And 5 billion of us don't have one. What if you could make thoughtful choices about exactly what your phone does, and use it as a creative canvas to tell your own story?

Note from the web master:
All of the contents below come from the following three papers:
1). "Whitesides' Group: Writing a Paper" By George M. Whitesides
2). "The Most Common Habits from more than 200 English Papers written by Graduate Chinese Engineering Students" By Felicia Brittman
3). "The Elements of Style" By Strunk, W., Jr. and White, E.B.
You may use them only if you are entitled to do so by the above authors.
1. Do not use nouns as adjectives:
Not: ATP formation; reaction product
But: formation of ATP; product of the reaction
2. The word this must always be followed by a noun, so that its reference is explicit.
Not: This is a fast reaction; This leads us to conclude
But: This reaction is fast; This observation leads us to conclude
3. Describe experimental results uniformly in the past tense.
Not: Addition of water gives product.
But: Addition of water gave product.
4. Use the active voice whenever possible.
Not: It was observed that the solution turned red.
But: The solution turned red. or We observed that the solution turned red.
5. Complete all comparisons.
Not: The yield was higher using bromine.
But: The yield was higher using bromine than chlorine.
6. Type all papers double-spaced (not single- or one-and-a-half-spaced), and leave two spaces after colons, and after periods at the end of sentences. Leave generous margins.
Not: the diameter is about 2mm
But: the diameter is approximatley 2mm
8. Prefacing the main idea of a sentence by stating the purpose,location or reason first. Chinese writers often preface the main topic of a sentence by first stating the purpose, location, reason, examples and conditions as introductory elements. However, this has the effect of demoting the importance of the main idea and making the reader
think the author is indirect. Bring the main idea to the beginning of the sentence stating any locations, reasons, etc., afterwards
Not: For the application in automobile interiors, this paper studies the nesting
optimization problem in leather manufacturing. 5
But: This paper studies the nesting optimization problem in leather manufacturing
for application in automobile interiors.
10.Tendency of placing phrases which indicate time at the beginning of a sentence
Not: When U is taken as the control parameter, the BDs for ∆ =0.0, 0.001, 0.005 are shown in Fig. 8.
But: Figure 8 shows the BDs for ∆ =0.0, 0.001, and 0.005 when U is taken as the control parameter.
11. Respectively is usually at the end of the sentence.
12. In this paper’, ‘in this study’
Two errors occur when these phrases are used. The first is overuse. In some papers written by Chinese, these phrases can occur as much as twice per page. In papers written by native English writers these phrases are reserved for primarily two uses. In the introduction and conclusion to emphasize the content of the paper. In the body of the paper, after referring to work not done by the author such as in other journal articles or in standard. Therefore, if either phrase occurs more than three times in a paper, its use is questionable. Actually, the reader is aware that the work presented is by the author (unless the author states otherwise) so there is no reason to repeat these phrases.
13. Do not write ‘by this way’. Instead write ‘by doing this’, or ‘using this method’.
Not: Simulation results
But: results or simulation
Not: Knowledge information
But: Knowledge or information
Not: Calculation results
But: results or calculation
Not: ‘the results are shown as Figure 2’
But: ‘the results are shown in Figure 2.’
16. In a series of three or more terms with a single conjunction, use a comma after each term except the last.
red, white, and blue
honest, energetic, but headstrong
17. The abbreviations etc. is always preceded by a comma, and except at the endof a sentence, followed by one.
18. Enclose parenthetic expressions between commas.
For example: The best way to see a country, unless you are pressed for time, is to travel on foot.
