Overexpression and simple purification of the Thermotoga maritima 6-phosphogluconate dehydrogenase in Escherichia coli and its application for NADPH regeneration
Background Thermostable enzymes from thermophilic microorganisms are playing more and more important roles in molecular biology R&D and industrial applications. However, over-production of recombinant soluble proteins from ...
ICTAS Doctoral Students Reception

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 ...
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, ...
Thermal transport in composites of self-assembled nickel nanoparticles embedded in yttria stabilized zirconia
(AIP Publishing, 2009-04-01)
We investigate the effect of nickel nanoparticle size on thermal transport in multilayer nanocomposites consisting of alternating layers of nickel nanoparticles and yttria stabilized zirconia (YSZ) spacer layers that are ...
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 ...
