The nature of the defects present at the Ge/oxide interface has been investigated by electrically detected magnetic resonance spectroscopy. In vacuo atomic oxygen exposure has been exploited to generate germanium oxide with variable composition according to the oxidation temperature. Two different kinds of interfacial defects have been identified, which correspond to the Ge dangling bonds and to an oxygen-related defect.

    Some of the main oxidation products of quercetin were shown to be compounds formed by oligomerization of the starting flavonoid. Conditions for the preparative synthesis of these compounds were developed. Their structures were established using HPLC-MS and NMR methods. Quercetin oligomers in the...

    Iron oxide nanoparticles have long been studied as a T2 contrast agent in MRI due to their superparamagnetic behavior. T1-based positive contrast, being much more favorable for clinical application due to brighter and more accurate signaling is, however, still limited to gadolinium- or...

    A nanoemulsion (NE) is a surfactant-based, oil-in-water, nanoscale, high-energy emulsion with a mean droplet diameter of 400-600 nm. When mixed with antigen and applied nasally, a NE acts as a mucosal adjuvant and induces mucosal immune responses. One possible mechanism for the adjuvant effect...

    Abstract. Visible light emission from Ge[sup +]-implanted SiO[sub 2] films is studied as a function of different fabricating conditions (implantation dose, annealing temperature and time). The SiO[sub 2] films containing Ge nanocrystals exhibit two photoluminescence (PL) bands peaked at 600 nm...

    Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has been applied to visualize monocyte infiltration with the use of intravenously injected ultrasmall superparamagnetic iron oxide (USPIO). However, USPIO uptake in vivo remains elusive, and the heterogeneous enhancement patterns observed by MRI point to multiple...

    The involvement of heat shock protein Hsp90 in pro-inflammatory response in male NMRI mice under conditions of acute toxic stress, caused by lipopolysaccharide from Gram negative bacteria, was studied using geldanamycin, a specific blocker of the activity of this protein. It is shown that the...
