Cell-free protein synthesis energized by slowly-metabolized maltodextrin
Background Cell-free protein synthesis (CFPS) is a rapid and high throughput technology for obtaining proteins from their genes. The primary energy source ATP is regenerated from the secondary energy source through substrate ...
Nanodispersed DO(3)-phase nanostructures observed in magnetostrictive Fe-19% Ga Galfenol alloys
(American Physical Society, 2008-03-10)
Few nanometer large (<2 nm) inclusions of DO(3)-phase structure have been identified in the A2 matrix of highly magnetostrictive Fe-19% Ga alloys by high-resolution transmission electron microscopy (HRTEM). In addition, ...
Foam-based optical absorber for high-power laser radiometry
(Optical Society of America, 2007-12-01)
We report damage threshold measurements of novel absorbers comprised of either liquid-cooled silicon carbide or vitreous carbon foams. The measurements demonstrate damage thresholds up to 1.6 x 104 W/cm(2) at an incident ...
Laser-induced exfoliation of amorphous carbon layer on an individual multiwall carbon nanotube
(AIP Publishing, 2007-07)
Pulsed laser treatment of an individual multiwall carbon nanotube induced selective exfoliation of the amorphous carbon contamination layer. The multiwall carbon nanotube (MWCNT) was exposed to a 248 nm excimer laser. After ...
