The aims of this study were to examine, in a prospective, controlled way, the effect of the sperm deposition site in the oocyte and the mode of oolemma breakage in intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) on fertilization and embryo development rates. In the first trial (100 cycles in total), the spermatozoa were deposited further from the meiotic spindle(More)
The determination of strontium in human blood samples by ICP-AES is described. For the analysis no chemical separations were required after microwave destruction. A mean value of 11.4 +/- 0.83 micrograms/l is found for normal whole blood. The limit of detection of the method is 0.3 microgram/l. As a possible application the enhancement of the strontium(More)
Elemental emissions during firing in a shooting range were measured for different types of ammunition. When using Hirtenberger bullets, lead, barium, antimony and to a lesser extent copper and arsenic were the primary metal pollutants. Stationary sampling at three locations in the range did not reveal large concentration gradients. Large concentration(More)

A fiber optic two-color pyrometer was developed for brake disc surface temperature measurement. The two-color pyrometer is composed of a fluoride glass fiber and two HgCdTe detectors equipped with bandwidth filters. The two-color pyrometer allows the measurement of brake disc temperature in the 200-800 °C range with a time resolution above 7 μs. Calibration(More)
