- An optical remote controlled high voltage dome for electron microscopes. Ruan, Shengyang; Kapp, Oscar H. // Review of Scientific Instruments;Aug1995, Vol. 66 Issue 8, p4313
Describes the fabrication of a low-cost, high voltage dome for an electron microscope with a thermal emission tip as electron source. Use of two fibers to provide communication across the high electrical field zone between the computer and the dome; Reliability of operating the dome circuitry.
- Assesment of Red Cell Distribution Width (RDW) in Patients With Obstructive Sleep Apnea Syndrome. Karakaş, Mustafa Serkan; Er, Arzu; Gülcan, Ali Rıza; Altekin, Refik Emre; Yalçınkaya, Selim; Çilli, Aykut // Journal of Turgut Ozal Medical Center;2013, Vol. 20 Issue 3, p208
Objective: Obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) is associated with increased cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. Red cell distribution width (RDW), a measure of the variability in size of circulating erytrocytes, has been reported to be a risk marker of morbidity and mortality for...
- Transmission electron microscope enables both 20 and 3D imaging. // Advanced Materials & Processes;Apr2005, Vol. 163 Issue 4, p62
Highlights the transmission electron microscope that enables both 2D and 3D imaging developed by FEI Co. Product description and features; Specifications; Industrial applications.
- Life-threatening adenovirus infection in a kidney transplant recipient. Barraclough, Katherine; Oliver, Kimberley; Playford, Elliot Geoffrey; Preston, John; Campbell, Scott; Johnson, David W.; Hawley, Carmel; Mudge, David; van Eps, Carolyn; Isbel, Nicole // Nephrology Dialysis Transplantation;Jun2009, Vol. 2 Issue 3, p250
The article presents a case study of a 68 years-old man who suffered from kidney disease and hypertensive nephrosclerosis. It states that the inflammatory markers were elevated and allograft function was normal. Moreover, urine microscopy showed 40 white blood cells and greater than 500 red...
- Zooming in on electron tomography. Bonetta, Laura // Nature Methods;Feb2005, Vol. 2 Issue 2, p139
Assesses that electron microscopy is an important tool for determining the three-dimensional structures of cellular components. Recognition in instrumentation, data collection and computation as techniques for improving the technique; Other methods used to elucidate the structure of ordered...
- A very low temperature scanning tunneling microscope for the local spectroscopy of mesoscopic structures. Moussy, N.; Courtois, H.; Pannetier, B. // Review of Scientific Instruments;Jan2001, Vol. 72 Issue 1, p128
We present the design and operation of a very low temperature scanning tunneling microscope (STM) working at 60 mK in a dilution refrigerator. The STM features both atomic resolution and micron-sized scanning range at low temperature. We achieved an efficient thermalization of the sample while...
- Production of gold nanoparticles by laser ablation in liquid alkanes. Compagnini, G.; Scalisi, A. A.; Puglisi, O. // Journal of Applied Physics;12/15/2003, Vol. 94 Issue 12, p7874
Pulsed laser ablation of Au target in n-alkanes generates Au sols. Experiments have been performed using the second harmonic of a Nd:yttritiumâ€“aluminumâ€“garnet at 532 nm wavelength with a 5 ns pulse duration at a repetition rate of 10 Hz and fluences ranging from 1 to 200 J/cm2....
- Southwestern's latest: Tool to biggie-size molecules. Squires, Laura // Fort Worth Business Press;9/5/2003, Vol. 16 Issue 34, p25
Relates the installation of a cryo-electron microscope at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas, Texas in September 2003. Description and features of the microscope; Advantage to researchers at the center; Sensitiveness of the instrument.
- Microscopes. Ward, Brian // First Fun Science Encyclopedia;2003, p61
This article focuses on the microscope, an instrument which lets us see tiny things that we cannot see with our own eyes, such as bacteria. It works by using group of lenses. Electron microscopes allow us to see even smaller things, such as viruses. A binocular microscope has two eyepieces...
