Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 193 / Monday, October 6, 2014 / Notices Weightedaverage margin (percent) Exporter Shaoxing Xiangyu Green Packing Co., Ltd. ............................ 19.35 Because no party appealed the CIT’s decision before the period of appeal expired on September 22, 2014, the CIT’s decision is now final and conclusive. Accordingly, the Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to assess antidumping duties on entries during the POR of the subject merchandise exported by the Respondents using the revised assessment rates calculated by the Department in the PET Film Final Remand. Cash Deposit Requirements Since the PET Film Final Results, the Department has established a new cash deposit rate for the Respondents.7 Therefore, the Respondents’ cash deposit rates do not need to be updated as a result of these amended final results. The cash deposit rate for the Respondents will remain the rate established for the subsequent and most-recent period during which the Respondents were reviewed. Notification to Interested Parties This notice is issued and published in accordance with sections 516A(e)(1), 751(a)(1), and 777(i)(1) of the Act. Dated: September 29, 2014.

Address written comments to Statutory Import Programs Staff, Room 3720, U.S. Department of Commerce, Washington, DC 20230. Applications may be examined between 8:30 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. at the U.S. Department of Commerce in Room 3720. Docket Number: 14–021. Applicant: Utah State University, 2400 Old Main Hill, Logan, Utah 84322–2400. Instrument: Respirometer for measuring the oxygen consumption of aquatic animals. Manufacturer: Loligo Systems, Denmark. Intended Use: The instrument will be used to better understand how the ability of aquatic organisms to obtain oxygen under different environmental conditions affects their growth, survivorship, distribution, and abundance. The phenomenon being studied is the rate of oxygen consumption by aquatic invertebrates, using the instrument under different temperatures and pollution concentrations. Continuous measurement of metabolic (oxygen consumption) response to stress by small aquatic organisms (<10mm in length) requires a flow-through system with oxygen probes and equipment that can both be programmed to precisely increase the temperature of a water bath and automatically detect ug level changes in oxygen concentrations, without which the research could not be conducted. Justification for Duty-Free Entry: There are no instruments of the same general category manufactured in the United States. Application accepted by Commissioner of Customs: August 5, 2014. Docket Number: 14–023. Applicant: Louisiana State University, 202 Nicholson Hall, LSU, Baton Rouge, LA 70803. Instrument: Scanning Probe Microscope (SPM)—scanning tunneling microscopy. Manufacturer: SPECS Surface Nano Analysis, Germany. Intended Use: The instrument will be used to elucidate catalytic properties of metal and metal-oxide systems, uncovering new schemes by which organic molecules become environmentally hazardous upon chemisorption. Scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) will be used to probe the nanoscale atomic structure, growth, and atomic/molecular dynamics of a variety of systems, including metal nanoclusters on oxides and grasphene, metal oxide surfaces and metal surfaces. All experiments will be conducted in ultra-high vacuum conditions, including in addition the STM, other surface sciences probes such as electron-energy loss spectroscopy, x-ray and UV PO 00000 Frm 00012 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 60137 photoemission spectroscopy. The electronics and STM head must provide 60 frames per second scan rate with pixel density of 128 x 128, the STM head must be mounted on an 8 inch flange with a vertical face, the instrument must have the ability to sputter clean the tip without removing it from the STM scan head, the tunneling bias voltage must be applied to the sample, and the preamp must collect current from the tip. Justification for Duty-Free Entry: There are no instruments of the same general category manufactured in the United States. Application accepted by Commissioner of Customs: August 26, 2014.
